"Best value by far"
This hotel is five minutes from Termini station which is close enough to walk, but far enough that it's not noisy and the neighborhood is good. There are not a lot of amenities, but I didn't go to Rome for hotel amenities. The wifi and breakfast was free which is better than some more expensive hotels. Yes the room is small and the bed is kind of hard, […] but that's typical of European hotels. Actually the bed wasn't bad. The staff is very friendly. It is walking distance to the Colosseum, Pantheon, and Trevi Fountain, but it's a longer walk and it's pretty easy to just take the subway. I would definitely stay here again. I could not have asked for a better experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value, Clean & Conveniently Located in Rome"
My wife and I stayed a full week at the Hotel Lirico. Our room was very satisfactory; clean, comfortable bed, good sized bathroom and bedroom. Good breakfast and internet were included (which was not the case at many other Rome hotels who charged an additional fee for both). The location of the hotel was just perfect; very short walk toTermini Station […] which gave us access to Rome's transportation hub and not too far of a walk to Coliseum/Forum or Trevi Fountain/Spanish Steps (which was our favorite location for eating and shopping). The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful (and all spoke very good English). Tony and Massimo were especially helpful. Good recommendations for local restaurants with a little something extra provided by restaurant when you mention Tony's name. Hotel Lirico is not a resort hotel with pools, multiple restaurants and bars, and a huge staff waiting to jump at your whim, but it is a pleasant, clean hotel with a staff that felt more like friends than typical hotel employees. It is a perfect hotel for folks who are more interested in what Rome has to offer outside of the hotel than amenities inside the hotel. Hotel Lirico was just what we were looking for - we would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect for budget travelers"
This hotel is within walking distance (15 min) of the Colosseum and train station (5 min) in a safe neighborhood with budget friendly restaurants nearby. Wonderful breakfast included offered eggs, Italian meats, rolls, cereal, pastries, fresh fruit, cheese, and your choice of cappuccino, espresso, or American coffee. Service was always friendly, professional, […] and available. Our twin room was quite small but adequate, nicely furnished, clean, and comfortable. Overall a great experience!

"Functional If You're Willing to Give Up Comfort for Convenience"
The Hotel has a 20 stair foyer that greets you as you walk in which cannot be bypassed by elevators, and the rooms are very small with hard beds. Our room also had a bathroom that constantly stank of sewage. It's location is very good in a safe, clean area of Rome very close to the center of town, and the staff were helpful and fluent in English. Breakfast […] offers a good selection of meats and bread rolls with some hard boiled eggs included for good measure. Hotel does offer Wi-Fi and it's fast and stable. I would recommend this hotel if you want a place to stay in Rome that gives you easy access to much of the city, and you're willing to give up a few creature comforts for the convenience.

Nice little hotel. The English speaking staff was very helpful and eased us into our first stop in Italy. They served a pretty good breakfast. The location was good - a short walk to the metro,and the Termini, a long one to the Colosseum - but doable for us older folks. The room was small but comfortable and clean with a good bathroom. I would recommend […] it and would gladly stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a nice hotel. The staff was friendly and the accommodations were nice. The breakfast is "continental," but in my opinion, it was nicer than most. Had a lot of local favorites, plus typical continental items you would find anywhere else. You can also get specialty coffee such as espresso for cheap from their staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel location is very good, near Termini station, and close to centar. Hotel is clean and breakfast excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed thurs to sun it was perfect! It's just down the road from the train station Termini - so we hopped on the Leonardo Express from the airport straight there in 40mins. It was very easy to find - brilliant staff - ideal location to the hop on hop off bus a fab way to get around all the sights! Slightly further away from the lively bars but there's […] some lovely restaurants near by and a quaint little outdoor bar just down the street! We didn't bother with breakfast at the hotel so can't comment on this, we just prefer to go out and about trying difference places for food without time restrictions so we always opt for room only. Our stay was AMAZING! Definitely recommend this hotel and would go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good choice for a holiday in Rome"
Good central location within 10 minutes walk of the main railway station and bus terminus. The room was comfortable, very clean with good bathroom facilities. The buffet breakfast offered plenty of variety and everything was very fresh. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was a good choice of restaurants within walking distance and in particular […] we would recommend da Trani which was around 10 minutes walk away. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Stayed 4 days at the Lirico Hotel and from our arrival until departure everything was first class. Staff were friendly and very helpful, great advice on where to eat and nothing was too much trouble for them.. Great location and being so central it is easy to get around either by bus, metro or you can walk to a lot of the attractions. Breakfast is continental […] and there is a great choice. We would certainly recommend this hotel to family and friends Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lirico hotel, Rome - April 2014."
My wife and I stayed here at the beginning of April, we chose the hotel for its location and price (compared to some hotels in central Rome). The staff were friendly and welcoming (we were the last arrivals of the day) even at 2200h and gave useful information and tips regarding the visit of the main tourist sites. If going up to the Vatican, go early […] as queues can get long and if you want to see St Peter's and the Sistine Chapel (no photos when inside! A lot of Basilicas/chapels/churches are the same as they are places of worship) you will have to queue twice as the entrances are at different locations. If you know which day you will visit this area, pre-book the tickets; there are also lots of touts who are very persistent along with 'street sellers'! When visiting the Colosseum (and not pre-booked tickets) and Capitoline/Forum enter at the Forum as queues are shorter; you can then go straight to the front of the queue at the Colosseum. Tip: wear some comfortable walking shoes, it is the best way of getting around, there are also lots of steps and cobblestones (Rome is old and built on 7 hills!!). We returned to the airport via the bus service from the Termini, it was cheap (4 Euros each); however, it gets full quickly and there is no real orderly queue and the free WiFi on board was a very poor connection. The journey can be noisy so make good use of your iPod! You do get to se parts of Rome that you wouldn't normally see though. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Tourist hotel in a good position near the Termini"
Hotel was very good value. Suited us fine but.. it is on the upper floors of a block and there are about 30 steps up to reception - quite daunting when you arrive latish with heavy suitcase(s). Quite happy though with our experience. Building outside rather dilapidated with bits of facing missing. Ok inside.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Really good friendly hotel."
Really friendly. Nice clean room with good view. Pretty central. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly comfortable Hotel in Rome's tourist area"
We stayed for 4 nights in February and the hotel was pretty close to exactly what we required. It was warm, comfortable, (although the beds are a bit hard), and the breakfast was very good- a variety of meats, eggs, cheese, bread rolls, croissants, cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt, coffe , tea etc. . Pity that the fruit juice on offer was not fresh. The […] staff were friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere relaxed and very pleasant. The rooms we had were comparatively spacious, well decorated, and the bathroom was modern, everything in working order. Access to rooms on floors 2 and 3 is via a lift which only holds 2 people- could be a problem for some people, especially if the hotel is busy. Overall.though, great value, and the location near Termini was excellent - the main tourist sites are all within easy walking distance, and if you want to go further, Termmini station is a short walk away. There are also lots of restaurants of various standards within a few hundred yards. We found all of the ones we tried to be very good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Brilliant all round!"
PerfectGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was really happy with my stay at this hotel. I went for a cheap hotel and wasn't really expecting much, I was surprised when I arrived at the quality and the staff were very kind (especially Tony). It's not anything special but they get the basics right. The location is great, a 5 min walk to the main transfer hub of the City where you'll find the […] train station and bus station, the City tour busses start from here as well. In the other direction you've got the Colosseum, this is about 10 or 15 mins walk. There's also a nice choice of different bars a restaurants all within walking distance. The only downsides would prob be the stairs to the main reception, I could handle them so didn't have an issue but the edderley or handicapped may have a struggle, there's approx 15/20 steps and no lift until you arrive in the reception, the only other very picky thing was that the beds are very hard but I did that much walking and climbing to the top of buildings that I was out as soon as I hit the pillow.

"Hotel? Or B&B?"
We chose this hotel for a) the price and b) it's location. Everywhere apart from The Vatican was within easy walking distance. Although classed as a hotel in our opinion the Lirico functioned more as a nice B&B (being as breakfast was the only meal it provided) It lacked a lounge or any comfortable public area for guests to meet up etc. Returning one […] afternoon we asked for a cup of tea but were told the "machine was being cleaned" and the staff made no attempt to accommodate their guests with this simple request by putting a kettle on; With no tea-making facilities in the room we therefore had to go back out to a nearby cafe for a cup of tea. We felt this was poor for an establishment calling itself an hotel. Breakfast was adequate but the breakfast room was tiny with the tables extremely close together and it was unable to accommodate more than about 18-20 people maximum and it was very very cramped so I think this would be a massive problem when the hotel is at maximum occupancy. Decor was good quality with fabric wall coverings and good heavy curtains in the room and everything was very clean. Free WiFi was appreciated. Pity the Lirico didn't operate as a 'hotel' but it fulfilled our criteria of being a good price and (for us) a good location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel in Rome"
If you are looking for a hotel centrally located in Rome in this price range, look no further. The hotel is located on a very safe street close to Termini train station (5min walk), lots of good restaurants nearby, subway is 2 min away. The room and the bathroom was small by north american standards, but we were fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
We spent 4 nights here. We chose this hotel as we wanted a central position where we could walk to most main attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review

"small, tidy, clean"
room was clean and tidy. very convenient location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We spent a week in Rome, staying at Hotel Lirico and were very pleased with our choice. Definitely reccommended. It is located very close to the main train station, public transportation, historic sites, shopping and in the same time being on a quiet street. The breakfast was very nice. The hotel staff was very helpful with everything we asked and they […] made great suggestions on local restaurants, shopping and things to do. The only thing is that the reception is on second floor, we couldn't find an elevator (maybe it is), so it was a little hard to go up on the stairs with the luggage.

"Lovely hotel with friendly staff"
We stayed at Hotel Lirico for 4 nights and we had a wonderful stay. The room was very clean and adequate size for central Rome. The staff were really friendly and attentive. The hotel is easy to find especially from the main train station, its only a 10 minute walk. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
A superb hotel in a brilliant location. Had read tripadvisor reports and was a bit concerned by some comments. Different people have different expectations and if you are paying 3 star prices you cannot expect a 6 star hotel. Yes the room was a bit on the small side but that did not matter----if you are in Rome to see the sights you do not spend much […] time in your room!! At check-in asked if we could have a room with a view of Opera House and staff duly obliged. All the staff went out of their way to make our stay special.(They obviously enjoy their work as they were always smiling! ) The location was good. You can walk to all the major attractions,although must admit the Vatican is an hour's walk away and we decided it was a bit too far when we would be spending 3hrs. on a tour. We had a 48 hour Hop on Hop off bus ticket so we made full use of that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Simple with no frills. Put a do not disturb sign up and once i returned from the day out, it had been cleaned, once we arrived the cleaning lady quickly knocked and entered(why? not sure of the purpose for it), we were not dressed appropriate, Complained to whomever was in charge up there and his response was ...oh we don't understand the sign on the […] door!. wi-fi though it's free it's non existent. would not return here.

Very neat, close to bus and train station. Stairs to main lobby, but elevator from there up. Staff was very accommodating, a good selection of cereal, juices, coffee tea, hard boiled eggs, and breads and pastries at the buffet breakfast. Would recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Smelly but close to everything"
The hotel smells funny. It was not a pleasant smell. The hotel is located close to most of the tourist attractions and very close to public transit and the train station. The hotel could invest in some new pillows as ours were as hard as rocks. The shower was broken so it left water everywhere. When I asked about the WiFi they told me the information […] was in the room, there was no information so we had to ask again for login information. I probably would not stay here again. However, just a couple blocks away was a great restaurant and we enjoyed eating there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable, quiet & convenient - great value too!"
We chose the Lirico after carefully comparing its situation and facilities with others at a similar price and it turned out to be ideal for our 5-night stay in Rome. Its location, within a short walk of the Termini station and the Repubblica metro, was a plus point, and yet it was also very peaceful, with no disturbance from traffic or from other guests, […] thanks to excellent soundproofing. There was no shortage of dining options nearby at every price level. Our room was spotless, comfortable and a reasonable size, as was the bathroom. The choice at breakfast (included in the price) was excellent: fruit juices, yoghurts, fresh fruit, cereals, rolls & pastries, cold meats, cheeses, eggs, preserves, hot beverages, etc. Even at busy times we found a table available and the staff did a fantastic job of keeping supplies topped up and clearing tables. Hotel staff overall couldn't have been more helpful, offering us a city map on arrival and making suggestions for eating nearby. On the day of our departure they stored our suitcases ready for collection at our convenience and they even carried them down to the entrance for us without being asked. All in all, the Lirico turned out to be a great choice for our stay in Rome. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Small, but friendly"
A small hotel, with really friendly and helpful staff, in a convenient location (just over 5 minutes walk to Termini Station). The bedroom was clean and comfortable, but very small.

"Disappointed despite its high rating on the review"
There were hairs on the bed sheets and blankets (house keepers didn't clean the rooms well), some of the bath equipments were already opened and used and not being changed to a new one, rooms are not comfortable because it's so very narrow. There is a long steps before you enter the hotel so it is definitely not for elderly or handicapped guests, elevators […] only takes two persons maximum (guided by receptionists), and our room telephone was not convenient: buttons of the digits were covered by a layer of plastic that was hard to be removed so we couldn't use the telephone.

"Misleading hotel information"
The picture on the website is not that of the hotel! It is the building next door. So we had difficulty in finding the hotel. The hotel is extremely small and has a lot of unexpected stairs going to the reception. The room was extremely small and the shower was for children no more than 40kg as any other person more than 40kg cannot get out of the shower. […] The doors are too close together and it is hard to squeeze out. The room is very very very small. The breakfast was not what one would call a decent breakfast for the rate paid. Will not stay here again. The hotel charges for the safe deposit box within the room. You pay to protect yourself from their own staff. A lot of things did not make sense at this hotel. There are a lot of hotels in Rome, so you are better off staying anywhere else but not at this misleading hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
