Basic Rooms, Great Staff!
Posted Jun 10, 2015
Tourists used to more elegant and well-appointed hotels will not enjoy the Hotel Texas. The rooms are very basic, with small bed, nightstand, table and chair, standing closet and a fan. No tv, minibar, dresser, safe, shampoo, pictures on the walls, telephone. Everything is very clean and neat, rooms are serviced daily. Bathroom is very tiny, with toilet, bidet and shower area almost too small in which to turn around. Two windows with heavy shutters do not allow much light or view. It is very basic, BUT travelers will love it. It's reasonably priced, great location (near main train terminal, Via Veneto, Spanish Steps) and easy to walk to many sights. But all of what some people would see as shortcomings are easily overpowered by the amazing, friendly, helpful, welcoming, chatty staff members. Fantastic people. I was a solo traveler, but my daughter and her husband were there at the same time and had no complaints at all. Perfect for the budget traveler.
