"Not impressed for four stars"
This was not as nice a hotel as advertized. The hotel was under construction and there was a lot going on. They had old Apple Computers sitting all over the place - I think as decoration. The breakfast was very bland. It was by the train station, which was nice, but so was our other hotel (YES HOTEL - Very nice). I think they were trying to transform […] a boring hotel into four stars, but they are not there yet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed two nights in this hotel in Rome. It is about a 5 min walk from the main train station and no more than 10 minutes to the Metro (subway) station. Within walking distance of the Trevi Fountain and Coliseum (probably 30 to 40 minutes). The hotel location is ideal. The room we had was the largest on our 7 day trip throughout Italy and very comfortable. […] The staff at the front desk was very helpful with directions and arrangements for tour bus, metro tickets, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel to See Rome"
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Rex. Our only suggestion would be the addition of a few shelves in the bathroom for toiletries, not a costly undertaking. The best part about staying at this hotel were the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and the hotel's location. We were minutes from the Tremini Station where we could […] catch trains, buses and the metro. We could easily use public transportation to get to everywhere we wanted to go in Rome.

"Close to Station Termini"
Very friendly hotel crew, super breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rome wasn't our favorite visit in Italy but the Hotel Rex was great. Laura at the front desk spoke English very well and made the stay great. The AC wasn't too cool but Laura had a fan delivered to our room and it helped tremendously. I also pre-ordered a bottle of Sparkling wine and it was in our room when we arrived in a bucket of ice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent for the price"
The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The room was bigger than we expected and the beds were comfy. The breakfast was free and delicious. We walked to everyone of the main attractions in Rome without a problem. The hotel is very close to many restaurants as well, and the staff is able to make recommendations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Poor Standards"
The hotel was in a great location, right by termini station. The staff were very nice and helpful. We couldn't get our A/C working and they sent someone up within 15 minutes of us asking. Unfortunately, those are the only nice things about the hotel. The room was very small. It was a queen sized bed and one night stand in the room and that was it. There […] was probably 8 inches between the bed and the walls. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest of places either and housekeeping seems to only make the bed when they come. The breakfast was awful as well. It was free, which is great considering the price of coffee and a pastry in Rome, but it left much to be desired. It was also located in the basement. It was very loud and very crowded. All in all, it is a decent hotel for Rome but there are better options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Home away from Home"
The staff is friendly and helpful and the hotel is clean. The bathroom was very spacious, although on one occasion the water was not warm enough for a shower. During a casual conservation with the staff we mentioned that we would be leaving the hotel early in the morning to travel to Florence. The staff prepared a continental breakfast for us to take […] with us as we travelled. We really enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the wait staff was very courteous and efficient. Wi-Fi was available in the room and there was no problem with connections. We would definitely use this hotel on any future visit to Rome. It's a home away from home.

"A hotel to get sick"
This hotel is dark and not well kept. The gym is a joke and and mold everywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location, showing some age"
If you can overlook the condition of the carpet and wallpaper, the Hotel Rex is a great deal. The staff was very knowledgeable and very helpful. The breakfast was the best of all the hotels we stayed at in Italy, and the location very close to the bus line made it easy to see many of the sights. There's a very good restaurant just down the block, and […] several pizzerias close by. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was nice, but there wasn't an elevator from the ground floor to the first floor. Our room was also 2 steps up from the first floor, so pulling bags was awkward. The people working there were very friendly and helpful. This hotel was withing walking distance to the Colliseum.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in Rome"
My goal was to find a nice hotel that was clean and had easy access to the train, buses and subway lines. Hotel Rex is perfect. The staff here is delightful, and the hardest working staff I have encountered this trip. Breakfast had many options with fresh food and delicious coffees. The hotel could use some painting in certain areas, but our rooms were […] clean, quiet and comfortable. The indoor spaces are unique and inviting. Highly recommended, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very nice front desk workers and all other employe"
We loved it. The air conditioning was not the best but that would be the only negative. The employee's were Wonderful!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great surprise near the train terminal. Wonderful staff/concierge. Delicious, soft bath towels, big roomy shower, and TV stations in English (need more options), and in-room coffee. Free breakfast was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly staff, nice location"
It is very near to main streets and to the train station. The staff is super friendly. We had a issue with the a/c but the were able to fix the problem the next day. Breakfast is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable very near Rome Termini"
We were pleasantly surprised by the features of this hotel which is a short walk from Rome Termini station. Don't stay here if you can't walk up and down stairs, however, as breakfast room accessible via stairs and even upper floors are one half story stairs to get to some rooms. Old style wood lobby, including cute little area with toys for kids. Breakfast […] room very well done, with good food. Rooms have typical inefficient Italian air conditioning. We followed staff's suggestion of staff for nearby restaurant and were delighted. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place close to the train station!"
My wife and I only stayed one night at this hotel but the front desk was the most helpful and friendly out of the 3 different hotels we stayed at in Italy. The room size was small but that is as expected for Rome. The location is great if you want a place close to the train station which is why we chose the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastically Helpful Staff"
Staying in Rome can present a great many challenges and we were absolutely thrilled with the friendly, helpful, outgoing manner of the staff at the hotel. Clearly it's a priority with management and made for a wonderful stay. Additionally the included breakfast was far beyond the norm (including Latte's made to order) the location is fantastic (near […] the Termini, the metro, easy walk to all of the Roman sites), quiet street with a Market Saturday morning, large bedrooms, a great stay.

"Good location, decent hotel."
Based on the reviews, etc, the hotel was as we expected. Helpful and nice staff but an older hotel with limited facilities. Location of hotel is excellent. Wi-fi worked fine as did air conditioner system. There was a bad odor due to AC and fridge did not really work. Breakfast was modest but adequate and as expected. Based on price (compared to other […] hotels), location, etc, we would recommend the REX. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Awesome people at a great location"
We loved staying here. The staff were friendly and provided great service. We were welcomed even though we showed up early for check-in. They provide a very nice continental breakfast as well as free wifi, computers, DVDs, and games. The location is a quick walk to 2 Metro stations as well as the main train station. I can't say enough good things about […] Hotel Rex. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff were extremely nice and helpful. Speak English and are very knowledgeable about transportation. Metro passes sold at front desk. Breakfast from 0700-1030 was satisfying to hold you over until lunch. Air conditioning was a must. Internet reliable. Excellent location as it is close to termini for train or most bus routes. Perfect to take the train […] to and from fumicino, and the beach. Only downside is the size of the room compared to hotels in the US, but are standard for European needs. Definitely recommended.

"Great Hotel, Great Staff, and Great Location"
Right in the center of town, but close to train station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The reception at check in was outstanding. The desk clerk gave us a great overview (in very good english) of the hotel, its services, restaurant, and bar. She provided us with a city map and circled our location and provided directions to tourist attractions. Our reservation was accurate in the system. The room, #506, was spacious (I could turn two […] cartwheels in the free space)and nicely furnished. The bathroom was very large with a bathtub that had both a handheld shower and a fixed shower head. Only drawback was that there were some carpet stains in the room, the central air conditioning vent rattled a bit, and there was no shower curtain or partition on the bath tub (the shower water just splashed onto the tiled floor).

Hotel Rex is less than 10 minute walk from Roma Termini Station. It is also about less than 10 minute walk to Bus station. Staff was very friendly and Hotel is very clean. They have xbox in each room and a video library downstairs. They have a computer, printer etc in the common library which we found very useful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Review of Rex"
Convenient to train station and sites and restaurants. Hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful and the room comfortable. The baths were a little dated but fine. Would highly recommend for those wanting to be near the sites and still enjoy the comforts of a fine hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Rex Review"
Good, safe location near the main train station, Metro and one of the hop-on hop-off bus stops. Room showed its age, but it was quiet and well maintained. Staff was extremely helpful. We would stay at this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"rome tour stay"
only negative was the appearance of carpet stains, staff was wonderful, breakfast was OK, bread and pastries could have been fresher, would stay again-was great location to see Rome from and was $100-150 cheaper then anything we could find for family of 4Genuine Expedia guest review
Highly recommended; great staff, room, location and overall experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We would go back tomorrow!"
We had a wonderful time at the Rex! The staff really made the visit ideal -- they were helpful with tips on using transit (and even sold us our day passes for the Metro) and recommendations for area restaurants when we were too tired to venture far afield. When most attractions were closed because of the snow (how fun to have snow in Rome, though!), […] the front desk staff called around to help us find places that were open, and also helped us line up our return ride to the airport at the end of the trip. The breakfast was wonderful -- lots of variety and it was fun to have the choice of cappuccino or caffe latte as well as American coffee. And the pastries were divine! We loved having a tea kettle in the room, as well as the mini-bar where we could store a few provisions. The room was small but comfortable and all we needed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff were friendly and the hotel was generally clean and comfortable. The breakfast offerings were poor including the coffee. We tried the breakfast twice but then went out for breakfast the rest of the week.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was a great place to stay. Nice size room, large bathroom. Great size bathroom for us large Americans. The room was clean and very comfortable. Although some of the fixtures were dated everything was clean, in great working order and problem free. The free breakfast was ok, yes it could have been better but, I could have also been required to pay […] for it. Hotel REX rocks! Although I only stayed in this hotel for one night I moved to a "better, four star hotel" around the corner for the rest of my stay here in Rome. Better is not always better. To compare the two places would be unfair because Hotel REX beats this second upscale hotel in so many ways. Hotel REX has GREAT personal customer service. The other hotel not so much...

"Great deal and location"
The hotel is a great deal for the price, excellent staff, very helpful and lots of good recommendation, well informed staff. Centrally located walking distance to lots of the sites, our stay included the breakfast and had a good selection. I would definetly recommend this hotel to a friend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Normal and friendly"
This is actually a nice hotel. We paid a price that was very low for a 4 star hotel so we didn't expect all that much. We had the smallest room on the floor, about 10 square meters. The bed was a bit skewed and uneven, and the sewerage was a bit old and noisy and had a small leak. Apart from that we had no other complaints. There was no shower curtain […] but a nice sliding door. The ventilation system was easy to use and working well. The staff was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the city. The hotel was very clean and provided free movie rental and wifi in the rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great staff, small bathroom, perfect location"
We stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Rex over Thanksgiving and enjoyed our stay. The rate was great, close to the train station, metro, and walking distance to just about all of the sights in Rome. Our biggest complain was the bathroom. The shower stall was tiny (we're used to European standards) but the grout throughout the bathroom needed to be re-done. […] It was all black. In addition, there appeared to be no rhyme or reason when there would or wouldn't be _any_ hot water. One day we showered at 6:30am, freezing water. Two days, plenty of hot water at 8:30. Once at night, 9pm, no hot water. You get the idea. The only other real complaint was the quality of the mattress (again, we're used to European hotels). This thing was rock. After full days of walking around Rome it wasn't the most pleasant thing to lie down on. Aside from the above, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was always available to answer any question (in English) and help out to improve our stay. The location was great as we weren't close enough to any major streets to hear the noise but we were never more than a 10 minute walk to a large variety of restaurants/metro/sights. For a slightly more upscale stay than a no-frills hostel (with a private bath) for a reasonable price, Hotel Rex is the way to go. Just don't expect the Ritz. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Off the beaten track"
This hotel was a little pricey but come on it's in Rome. Were treated well with no surprises. A few times we had to wait a little for hot water. Buffet was good with nice options besides breads/pastries.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, 10 minutes from main train station (Termini)"
Hotel pretty nice. American type space for room and bathroom. Bed was soft but pillows nice. You have to climb stairs to get to reception; once you take elevator, you still have to sometimes climb 1/2 flight of stairs to get to your room. Not sure how they handle their wheelchair customers. Service was good. Would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Oasis in Rome"
We loved this hotel. It was located within walking distance of the Termini station and was so convenient to incredible restaurants. The breakfast in the mornings was WONDERFUL and a great introduction to my first real morning in Rome. We would definitely stay here again. So glad I found it through your site....since I had NO idea where to begin.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good Hotel"
I booked Hotel Rex for its convenience to the train station (about a 5 minute walk). It's a very good European hotel. Clean, comfortable and a great staff. And it was reasonably priced. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Coloseum and about 10 minutes from Spanish Steps/Trevi fountain... but most everywhere else in the city... Piazza Navona, Vatican, […] etc... is a good hike or a cab ride away. There are some restaurants nearby, but most of the best ones are in surrounding neighborhoods. BUT... we didn't mind the walking to and from the various sites and liked not being surrounded by tourists. Took a cab one night for dinner to the Pantheon area... cost about 10 -12 euro... but worth it to stay in a quieter, less hectic part of town. So, if you're just stopping in Rome for a couple days and want the convenience of being near the train station, it's perfect. If you want to be in the middle of all the "action", then you may want to look around. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a 4-star hotel"
The hotel was quaint and quirky but definitely not 4-star as on Hotels.com. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was great. However the beds were hard, the toilet & sewerage system noisy all night, & the "air conditioning" non existent. The rooms were very pokey. The Hotel Rex is situated in a decrepit part of Rome with homeless on the doorstep. […] It did not feel safe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
