Not for everybody

Posted Jan 6, 2016
Good location, close Metro acess. Friendly and helpful owner, coffee and croissant brought to your room. Hard to find at first. Occupies one floor on a condo building. Pretty secure. Curtains and bed covers stained, smelled of cigarette smoke. WIFI range poor. Less than desirable price/quality. Lots of street vendors on the sidewalk. Small shower. Few electrical outlets. TV turned on and off on its own. Needs a bit of updating.

This is not a hotel it is only a bed and breakfast

Posted Nov 4, 2015
I will not recommend this b&b to anyone. Stinks of cigarettes everywhere in the corridors. We were told that free wi_find access will be there,but when we asked the owner lady she kept on giving excuses day after day, thus we could not access Internet and our trip was getting stressful. The only good thing is that it is only 500yards from the main termini station..

Excellent value for your money!

Pros: Cleanliness, friendliness, and price.
Cons: Not a thing.
Location: It is near main train station, Collosium, Victor Emmanuel monument, and forum. Also close to several metro stations.
The staff are friendly and do their best to accommodate you. They serve an excellent coffee and croissant for breakfast at the exact time that you request it. The location is excellent and within walking distance from major sites. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as it is better than we expected.

could be better given the price

First of all, it was 10min from a metro station, roma termini and the colosseum. Furthermore the owner was very friendly. However the wifi was very poor- basically non existant. the whole place smelt of cigarettes. Warm water in the shower barely lasted longer than 2min. Above all the place was very hard to find with no obvious signage.

Horrible experience

Posted Jun 15, 2015 on Hotels
I booked the hotel for three days prepaid, however could not stay for another night. I had to search for another hotel which is much better. The room is not clean, has got unpleasant smell. Wifi was not working. Disappointing shower.

not recommended

Posted Apr 13, 2015 on Hotels
It is called "hotel", but really is just an apt in a neighborhood. It is close by the train station and the hostess Elisabeth was friendly. That is about all the good thing I have to say. No internet for the two days we were there "because the weather is bad". Breakfast was a cup of coffee and a doughnut at the neighborhood cafe. Our sink cannot drain (it was fixed later) and when we checked in another guest complained their toilet cannot drain. Room has only two outlets, one for the lamp and one for the fridge. So you have to choose which one to use when you want to recharge cell phone or computer. We booked room for 4. The two twin beds were fold-over bed. Even my 10 year old daughter sinks in it. We were given keys to access the apt but could never figure out how to use it to enter the complex. Had to be buzzed in every time. will not come back again for sure.

As expected for the price

Posted Feb 22, 2015
Good location, basic rooms, highly secure (4 keys to get into room), clean, poor showers (water switches hot to cool), helpful owner who wants to please, mix up with booking meant we had to change room into the booked family room from 2 twins on the second day, some nice restaurants nearby, breakfast not great (pastries at local café).

Don't try

Posted Jan 9, 2015 on Hotels
Maikol, the owner is nice lady. But overall, the hotel is really poor condition. Smoking smell all around the room. Room is not clear. I can see other people's hair in the bathroom... Hard to find the hotel -- there is no hotel sign outside the building. Don't try.

personalised service

Posted Jun 9, 2013 on Hotels
when first arrived, we weren't convinced that the taxi took us to the right place. The main entrance is through a door of the building where a parade of shops are in between graffitti walls. However once gone in the the whole atmosphere changed on seeing the welcoming receptionist/owner. A family owned hotel and clean and comfortable throughout. centrally located for most attraction and next to a metro station. We are a family with young children It's an old fashioned b&b but has got all modern facilitieswe including w--fi. thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Clean, quiet, and economical

Posted May 23, 2013
Hotel Maikol was fine for our needs. We wanted an economical hotel close to the train station. It was very clean and the owner was lovely. She recommended a great restaurant for dinner. The breakfast served in the room is included and was very fresh and nicely presented. As others have noted, it is hard to find unless you know to look for the MAS Store sign, but we knew that and found it with little trouble. It is not a big fancy hotel. We had to ring the door bell when we arrived upstairs (it is on 2nd floor), but the owner answered promptly. The neighborhood has vendors on the street, but we had no issues with security. If you want a big room in an upscale location, this is not it. If you want a clean, quiet room walking distance to the Termini Train station, and at modest cost, this is for you.
