Clean hotel Wonderful staff

Posted Jan 11, 2017 on Hotels
Each time I stay at the Strand hotel I enjoy it! Its in a great place close to everything. Once you walk in you get greeted warmly and check in process is quick! The beds are amazing and the rooms not only smell nice but they are clean! I truly suggest this place.

Functional - not the best for business

Posted Nov 17, 2016
Pros: The staff at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful with local information & directions. Internet was strong and stable enough for my work VPN
Cons: The room was tired. The shower head holder was broken (as noted in reviews by others). The room fresher was so strong it made my eyes burn.
Location: Situated between 2 metro station and close my meeting site, I could walk everywhere. Some very nice local vs tourist restaurants are nearby.
This hotel is real mix so go in eyes open and with limited expectations. First, it is a bit challenging to find, even when you have a good idea where to look. The listed address is on the main street but the entrance in is a side ally. It would be helpful to have a sign on the street with an arrow pointing in the dead end alley. The "Hotel" sign on the building is half covered by an overgrown bush. The actual name of the hotel nor the actual building number were not marked anywhere that we could find outside so you are left to wonder if you found the right place. The room and bathroom were small even by Italian standards. As single business travelers, my colleague and I had separate rooms on the top floor. The sink is literally in your face when sitting on the toilet. I'm small and fit but I'm sure the shower is barely negotiable for anyone over 6ft or a little on the "big boned" side. The is no space for desk & chair so to work in my room, I set my laptop up on the TV table and sat on the night stand. For a small hotel, they have a very functional gym. Other reviews have noted you can hear/feel the subway pass under the building so if you are a light sleeper, this might be a problem. All thing considered, it was fine for 2 nights and I appreciate the earlier posted reviews so that I wasn't expecting more than a very basic place that was going to be rough around the edges.

Excellent hotel to experience Rome

Posted Nov 1, 2016
Whilst not walking distance from the centre the hotel was so close to the metro it was easy to experience most of the city. The receptionist was wonderfully helpful. If you want somewhere nice to put your head whilst enjoying the city then look no further.

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Day staff were very friendly and helpful Pool and spa are not heated in the summer months so they are cold and the hotel is very over looked by flats and apartments Bathroom area very compact but very clean our room was very clean and had everything you need We were very close to metro station so very easy to get into the centre of Rome and bus routes were easy to use and staff are friendly Great trip

Lovely!

Posted Jun 8, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel was lovely and clean as was our room. The little fridge in the room was nice to keep bottles of water cool in. the shower was powerful and we had a huge balcony over looing the pool. The pool area was clean with comfy sun loungers which we enjoyed. The man on reception was very helpful, giving us information about the city, local restaurants to eat at and tips on the best way to get to the tourist attractions or airport. The only issue for us was the noise - the hotel is under a flight path and above the metro line so during the day/evening there is constant noise - not so good for a light sleeper. However the metro line was very handy for getting in and out of Rome centre and the station was within walking distance.

Good basic hotel

Posted Oct 9, 2013 on Ebookers
The hotel was well situated, near to 2 metro stops, but hard to find (very small sign outside). Good if you're not spending much time at hotel. Problem with electrics, fridge & 2 sockets didn't work, 1 was loose in wall !
