Close to train station and metro

Posted Sep 15, 2016
The Hotel California is conveniently located to Termini and also has triple rooms available. The stafff were very friendly and helpful. The only minor downside - there is no secure luggage storage area, your bags are in the lounge while you wait to check in.

Close proximity to Rome centre.

Posted Jun 8, 2016
Pros: In the centre of Rome, walking distance to attraction and public transport.
Cons: Provide kettles and tea making facilities in the room.
Location: Walking distance to Rome underground and bus terminal. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Walking distance to attractions.
Stayed for six nights, no complains. Staff were very friendly, rooms are okay, breakfast is standard. Overall experience is good, no kettle in the room, would definitely recommend. Stayed in the family room with kids, had four beds.

3 Star hotel excellent value for money.

Posted Aug 10, 2015
Pros: No criticism whatsoever.
Location: Metro - pickpocketed twice by young children who block entrance to train. Three obstruct, one hits and then exit. All failed - money belt a necessity!
Stayed 5 nights in high season. Staff very helpful. Excellent breakfasts. No other meals served. However restaurant outside served good food.

Expedia Customers Beware!

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: Only the location which is excellent
Cons: If they are putting Expedia package customers in the annexe this should be made clear at the time of booking and Expedia themselves should investigate
Location: The location is excellent, very central and within easy walking distance of everywhere you might wish to visit in Rome.
Alarm bells were ringing even before we left the UK as I had emailed this hotel twice to request a room on a high floor away from street noise but they did not even reply, this despite our stay being for 14 nights.. On arrival at reception the first thing I mentioned was my emails and the clerk made no attempt to offer any explanation for not replying to my email, I then asked him for a room on a high floor and was told "the hotel is full", no attempt was made to accommodate my request and I was about to find out why. He couldn't find our booking until his colleague said "Expedia" to him at which point he found it in a separate pile, this was already worrying. Other guests checking in were simply given their electronic key and room number but the clerk said he would take us to the room and that's when it became clear. We were escorted to a dingy "annexe" which was obviously not even part of the real hotel, bits of paper with the alleged room numbers were above all the doors, nothing like the modern rooms on the website. Inside he made no attempt to show us round, probably because he knew of the faults, the in-room safe was locked with no instructions, the bathroom washbasin waterflow was non-existent, the shower head was lying in the bath with nowhere to hook it up therefore we had to hold it every time we showered, cupboard space was minimal so we ended up living out of our cases and as I had feared the street noise from 6am was unbearable. Very disappointing, never again.

Great location.

Posted May 6, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: cleaner
Location: real close to Train station and restaurants.
Typical 3 Star Hotel in Italy. Could be cleaner (just not pristine) and more comfortable. Great location breakfast and elevator.
