"Great value for money"
Good transport links, tram and bus outside front door and two metro stations within ten minutes walk, make this a good place for a cheap stay in Rome.

"Unusual shaped room in old but good hotel"
The room was an odd shape, and the bathroom facilities somewhat antiquated - nice to have a bidet but the shower didn't empty very quickly, and ended up pooling around the drain on the main bathroom floor. I asked someone to look at this, but it didn't change. Otherwise cool tile floors - nice for summer weather. Nice enough bed. The hotel had vending machines for coffee and drinks and snacks, and a nice bar, and several lounges. Also the staff were more than helpful and went out of their way to assist with questions

About 15 - 20 minute walk from the station. On main road, so noisy but rooms have double glazing and air conditioning. Few nice bars in the area, offering meals at reasonable prices. Not much in the way of a hospitality tray but room very clean and towels changed daily (bit on the thin side!). Staff friendly and helpful and speak good English.

"Nice hotel noisy location"
The hotel is situated around a 20 minute walk from the Colloseum and 30 minute walk to the centre of Rome's main attractions. There is however a metro station called Manzoni located 500 metres away that will take you all around Rome the hotel is also a 15 minute walk from the City main station Termini .The location of the hotel is very picturesque looking out onto some acrchiture. The hotel staff were friendly upon checking and told us where some of the local attraction where and places to eat. The room itself was basic with a TV , kettle, hairdryer, shower and bath. Some of the rooms in the hotel feature a small balcony. The only downfall with this hotel was the location due to it being situated next to a very busy road which is noisy all day and right though the night. The aircon in the room also did not work so the window had to be kept open at all times.

Nice hotel, close to public transport links and easily accessible for all the sights of Rome, not the most liveliest of areas but perfect for those who want to spend the days sightseeing and not looking to venture in the evenings.

"Good reasonably priced hotel"
The hotel is situated on the busy traffic interchange Piazza Portamaggiore. There are trams available in the Piazza (we didn't use). The Rome Metro station at Manzoni is 5 minutes walk and, though rather a limited transport system, allows access to most of the main tourist attractions. Colosseum and Lateran Basilica are both less than 30 minutes stroll away. The bar prices are reasonable. The little family-run trattoria to the left out of hotel reception is charming and well-priced. There are few local facilities. Some decent simpler restaurants 5-10 mins walk towards Termini station.

"Great hotel and fantastic staff but a big problems"
First let me say that it is a beautiful and. Harming hotel on a lovely square close to the colosseum. Use a map and it's a 15 walk to termini or a 20 minute stroll past a great ice cream place to the colosseum. The staff are very friendly, even the table cleaners and the maids. The rooms are clean, there was cigarette ash in a bedside table drawer when we got there. The wifi is very expensive and starts from when you pay at reception, so race back to your room or stay downstairs. The breakfast is simple but plentiful and very tasty, croissants and rolls and jam and cheese and ham. Lots of nice coffees. I was very happy with our stay here apart from two major problems. Upon arriving the guest in front of us was complaining that his wallet was missing from the table in his room. Then on the second day the maids were entering the room as we were leaving and were very friendly but when we returned 10 hours later we discovered that they hadn't locked our room. Luckily nothing was taken but I've never had this in any hotel, ever. Please stay here but check your rooms before you go and see the sights.

"Good overnight stay"
We stayed at the hotel for just one night. The clientele is mainly young people but the noise level in the hotel was fine. The room was small but comfortable and was well placed to explore Rome (1000 mtrs to centre). One negative was that the hotel is billed as 'Termini' area but it is a good 15-20 mind from the station through a poor area. Having said that we would return as the hotel was good and the staff friendly. It represents excellent VFM.

"Great place for travellers on a budget"
We stayed for three nights in a basic twin room facing the street. There was traffic noise outside but this was compensated for by the view of the Porta Maggiore Roman gateway from our window. This is a large hotel, with style and character. The service wasn't always perfect but overall the staff were polite, friendly, efficient and smartly presented. The buffet breakfast was largely bread and pastry products, cereal, yoghurt, juice and hot drinks from a machine - but you can have plenty of it. The bedroom was air-conditioned, which kept it cool in really hot weather, and the beds comfortable. Although the shower cubicle was quite small, the bathroom itself was large considering this was a basic room, and came with soap, shampoo and shower caps provided. There's also a hairdryer and good cupboard space. We are in our 50s and our aim was to get out and about to see Rome, particularly the ancient centre, and this really suited our needs. For the price we paid, I thought this hotel was extremely good value and would recommend to travellers on a budget. I'd certainly go back.

Our stay was pleasant, staff friendly and welcoming. The hotel was only a few blocks away from the metro station, which is very convenient for getting around. One thing that had us concerned was, when u leave the hotel for the day they ask you to leave the room key with them. When you return you would ask for it back, and they don't ID you.

"Just OK, nothing more."
This hotel was average and very typical of a European three star hotel. The rooms are small but have all the necessities; tiny television, tiny bathroom (awful shower), hair dryer, mini fridge, a kettle and a controllable heater. From the window, the view of the old wall is very charming. With the windows closed we did not hear any noise from the busy street below us; however we did hear the shower and hair dryer from the room next to us. In addition to this, the cleaning staff are extremely noisy and you can hear every sound in the hallways starting at 7.30 am. This did now allow us to sleep in, but as we were interested in sightseeing, we did not really mind waking up early. The continental buffet breakfast was very nice. The staff were polite and helpful, except for the older lady at the front desk who was extremely arrogant and did not seem too care much for tourists. She also gave us a room directly next to the renovation area of the hotel (though there were other empty rooms available), which was quite noisy during the day and made it impossible to rest. In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay because we only slept there and were out most of the time, but considering the large number of hotels in Rome (and in the same or better price range), we decided to try another hotel for our second week there. I would only recommend this hotel if you find it at a discounted price and don't mind being a few kilometers away from the center of Rome.

"Value for money"
We were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. The hotel seemed nicer than what we expected. The concierge was most helpful (older man with glasses, tall and thin) he pointed out many places we would enjoy and told us all the appropriate bus and tram numbers. Although the room was nice, the bed was hard and the pillows were far too large and firm. The breakfast service was OK - be sure to get in early, and don't expect anything other than a continental breakfast (as it states). The restaurant however, I would avoid. The staff seem very unhappy and the food is not up to standard for the price. My partner felt we were treated differently due to being only English speaking. Overall, for what we paid, we were happy, but would have taken advantage of room service if it were available despite the unsatisfactory restaurant experience.

their wed site doesn't say that they turn the AC off during 'winter' - this is misleading. when you close the windows (especially the street facing rooms) to reduce the noise - you can't breath in the rooms. they also don't (by default) put a kettle cups in your room. if you don't asked, they do provide. if I haven't read the web site again to see that they offer kettle and coffee - we would never have known. staff in the restaurant is not friendly to 'non-Italians'

"Nice hotel and location."
The staff and Hotel were nice and I had a wonderful view of the Roman gate across the piazza, and the tram hub just outside is really handy. The only problem was that I had to keep the window closed at night due to the noise of the traffic which meant the room did heat up, but that's not really the Hotel's problem as Roman drivers are crazy.

"The WORST hotel experience I have ever encountered."
Me and my boyfriend showed up at the Portamaggiore Hotel which we booked well in advance, to be told that there was a 'problem' with our room and that we would have to be relocated to the 'four star' hotel down the street. We were tired after our flight and did not put up a fight, but when we showed up at the so-called four star hotel down the street we were absolutely appalled. The room that they put us in was on the ground floor, right next to reception, and right next to the maid closet and kitchen. It was literally a back up room that is only used in emergencies and which no paying guest of that hotel would ever be placed in.There were no windows in the room and you could hear absolutely EVERY word that people were saying in reception. We complained and were told that we would be moved back to the Portamaggiore Hotel in the morning when the 'problem' had been resolved. No one could tell us what the problem was so we never did find out. We were also told that the Portamaggiore Hotel would provide us with a bottle of wine that night to compensate for having to move us to an alternative hotel. We never got that wine. After the most horrendous night's sleep, we got moved to the Portamaggiore Hotel the next morning and were placed in the room we had booked but were treated as if we were in the wrong when we complained about our treatment, and above all, the four star hotel even tried to make us pay for staying there, AND at their four star rate! I will never ever come back to this hotel ever again, and i have never been treated this poorly as a paying customer on their holiday. It ruined what was supposed to be a special birthday weekend.

"Not worth the money"
The location of the hotel is in a ghetto area. If you are in the upper floor (4 and 5), think of using the stairs as there is only one slow and outdated elevator. The breakfast is very simple. You will see a lot of older people in the hotel so if you have a question from the front desk, it will take a good half a hour before you get to them since there are a lot of old people who come with very simple questions, e.g, how to use the key to open the door or how to use the shower, etc. Also, there is not internet in the room.

Expected more from hotel in comparison to ones previously stayed at with similar ratings and cheaper prices. Disappointed wifi was limited to a single common room where signal consistently dropped out due to overwhelming number of devices given the vast size of hotel. Bathroom had dark hair stuck to wall of white tiles, shower leaked at base and no real nozzle on shower head. "Laundry facilities" was an expensive external dry cleaning service so we were unable to do a load of washing as we had anticipated. Fortunately bed was comfortable

"Hotel is in convenient location with trams & buses"
We had a dissappointment on arrival on 19 Aug 2013 that our Hotel Portamaggiore had to re-located us to nearby Hotel Daniela which was slightly inferior in quality (we suspected it was due to overbooking). What made the matter worst was that Hotel Daniela had electricity breakdown the next morning and we had to go to another nearby hotel for breakfast. Since Hotel Portamaggiore only had room for us for 20 Aug and 21 August 2013, we then moved back to Hotel Portamaggiore on 20 Aug 2013. What was also dissappointing was that the hotel staff told us that they did not want to put us in the hotel on 19 Aug 2013 due to the noisy group of students staying. We even said we didn't mind the noise but they still would not let us stay, which is why we suspected that the hotel was overbooked. We were also disappointed that the room did not have free coffee & tea facility, not even a electric hot water kettle.
