The hotel is a combination of old world facade & modern rooms. The 200 year old cage lift gives little indication of the modern features you find once entering your room.
Better signage at the front would make finding the hotel much easier. The website had an optional breakfast available for 7.5 Euro but no form of breakfast was available for our stay.
A little gem of a place, we looked right onto the opera house...ok there are no restaurant/bar facilities but lets face it it's rome you just had to look out the front door and there was plenty to choose from. Felt very safe and secure and the free cappacino next door was lovely not to mention the pastries (yum) clean, comfortable, helpful and a great central location. Don't miss drinks/food at bar viminale across the street on the corner, good times lots of fun there...would definitely recommend
The room was immaculate, a little smaller than most hotel rooms but certainly adequate. The shower was excellent as was the location for a city break, to see the sights.
Excellent location - just opposite the Opera. Almost all attractions are accessible on foot, and there are lots of restaurants around. Very convenient for the train station and the coach to Ciampino. The hotels feels secure with electronic keys. The room had a giant TV, but only 4-5 channels.
The room was tiny, but I was not looking for luxury. All worked OK, but the air conditioning could not be adjusted for temperature.
The city Centre location was execellent as all the main tourist sites were close.
The brochere stated the Wifi was free, however we had to pay for Wifi. We also would have liked clean towels every other day unlike the 3 day towel change policy.
Everythings was perfect, excellent location, really hi-tech room, very clean place and wonderfull staff. I suggest this place to everyone i loved it
We arrived earlier than the 2pm check in and we were allowed to check into our rooms which was great after an early morning flight to get to Rome. The hotel is only a 10 min walk from Termini Station.
The only thing I can cristise was the breakfast. It cost 15 Euros for 2 breakfasts and it was only a ham and cheese sandwich with a croissant and coffee/tea. Not really worth the money in my opinion. Take some DVD`s the only channels you have in English is BBC 24 News and a films channel but not always are they in English.
The old fashioned lift
Design/layout of the room. Chemical smell on sheets and towels No towel change in 3 days unless you wanted to pay an additional charge. 1 English tv channel and tv size in comparison to the room In expected additional tax on the room of €4 a night at check in.
Service, location, clean room and updated fittings
The hotel is set four hundred yards from the Termini Rail Station so this is good for people arriving by train or bus. Set opposite the Opera house it is easily found with a large brown door as the entrance. Should the door not be open then access is by intercom to the right of the door (Ignore all the intercom buttons on the LHS). The hotel is rather unusual as it consists of a reception and several sets of rooms set within the building on the first and third floors. All you get is reception service which will attend to any requests and queries, together with a room with tea making services outside the room in the corridor. The rooms although reasonably small as you would expect from a typical hotel room in Rome but are well appointed with most facilities and very clean and well decorated. Access to the rooms can be gained 24 hours a day by a key cad that opens external doors and the room door. Although the hotel is located in central Rome as we live in a rural area we requested a quiet room at the time of making the reservation. The room we got was one that faced onto an inner courtyard and as we had trouble with closing the window on the first evening slept with the window open, there was little or no noise and we slept well!!! Like many hotels unless the windows are shut the AC does not operate so insure that you close the window to ensure the use of this function. We made several requests at the reception and all were dealt with courteously and effectively by the staff who spoke reasonably good English. When you check in you also receive a coupon for a free pizza at a local restaurant which is about 400 yards from the hotel. We took advantage of this and found the place to be reasonable and friendly so went back for a second meal another evening (Unusual for us!!
No public area but we were aware of this before we booked!!
Very nice room, nearby to Termini.
close to metro and modern amenities
no ash tray at entrance
It is a convenient location, being close to the Termini, whilst also being central to most of the key sights. The only public transport needed was a visit to the Vatican. The hotel itself was comfortable, had free tea and coffee making facilities (in a shared area) and had luxury shower facilities which after tiring sightseeing trips was very reviving.
This hotel was located within easy walking distance to Termini Station. It is located directly across the street from the Opera House so it is easy to find. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. The hotel is housed in a nondescript office/apartment building which some may find strange but it is a very secure building and, once inside your room, it is quiet, comfortable, and spacious. The room was equipped with air conditioning, a safe, a small refrigerator, plenty of storage, and a nicely appointed bathroom. There were two TVs in our room...one on the desk in front of the bed, and another one in the bathroom, built into the mirror. I expected much less for the price and was very pleasantly surprised by what we got. We will definitely stay at the Al Viminale Hill Inn again when we are in Rome!
Central, wonderful welcome, amazing Hotel :)
