"HORRIBLE."
stayed in the family room on the reception level. Horrible smell in the room when walked in, ac smelled like mold, kitchen utensils & pots are so worn out & dirty. Reception is closed from 3-6pm & not 24h. Hot water not available all the time in the shower, called the emergency line and no one picked up. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. book a real hotel instead.

"Retro Rome Apartment walking distance to Colosseum"
I thought it was a good location for our three days in Rome. The office wasn't open the hours they told us so basically there was only staff for check in and check out and no one to answer a question for us when we had one. (We had a phone number though If we'd really needed anything). Don't buy their wine- it was awful.

"BEST HOTEL STAFF EVER!!"
My husband and I stayed for a few nights at the end of our 2 week Europe road trip. We stayed in over a dozen hotels in Europe and this was our favorite. VERY short walk to the Colosseo and train station. We were able to get free parking right outside the hotel. We felt very safe walking around the hotel at night. The room was clean, we liked the retro decor, WIFI was fast. You have access to a shared kitchenette and courtyard. But the best part was DEFINITELY the STAFF! They were incredibly helpful and welcoming. They gave us several maps, directions, recommendations. Held our luggage for us after check out and offered us coffee/tea/water/bathroom even after we checked out.

"Don't judge a book by its cover!"
When my boyfriend and I walked up to the outside door, we were a little scared. However, as soon as we went in we were greeted by Angela, who sat us down and gave us information about the hotel and surrounding areas. I had accidentally booked a 5 night stay through hotels.com, and she was more than happy to refund the last night since we were only staying for 4 nights. The rooms are very modern and cute, and you have your own thermostat, which is nice because it gets HOT in Rome! The location is great - only about a 10 minute walk to the Colosseum metro stop. Give this place a try if you're heading to Rome!

I was a bit disappointed in this accomodation. The description of RetRome as a "hotel" is a bit misleading. It is actually more like a B & B in a larger residential building where they have a number of rooms that they rent out, along with one apartment space. While the staff at RetRome was very welcoming and helpful, the apartment that we rented was not very clean. The bathroom was fine, but the kitchen of the apartment had leftover food in the oven,the refrigerator was not very clean and the towels and sponge left in the kitchen for cleaning dishes were used,old and extremely unsanitary. In addition, the tile floors were not very clean. I had to wipe my feet after walking across them every time without shoes. And while the bathroom in the apartment had been updated, the rest of the apartment was not and could have used a fresh coat of paint at the least.

It is decorated in a stylish way and clean. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. We loved our stay here and would recommend it to all who want to visit Rome.

"Very pleasant surprise"
We were very happy about booking this hotel and felt very confident, until we were pulling our suitcases up the small hill to be confronted with a dull, brown and unloved building in front of us. Once we were inside, however, our worries started vanishing; the staff were so friendly and the interior has been really thought about (as there is a subtle retro theme). We were shown to our room which was perfect for us, if on the small side. Everything very clean and bright, felt very safe, and staff were always willing to help. They even had a small communal area with a mini fridge and some kitchen utensils which we thought was considerate. The area the hotel is in has everything you'll need, a pharmacy, a small supermarket and lots of restaurants. Overall would definitely recommend.

Hotel staff were rude and felt you were putting them out by asking questions. Bathroom door wouldn't lock and toilet seat was broken. The TV had no signal for channels however it did have a DVD player with a small collection of DVDs to choose from . AC was available. Very close to the colosseum and other landmarks.

"Retrome respite"
We recently stayed in the Retrome apartment on the ground floor. The apartment was spacious and airy, although a little subterranean for my liking, not having any windows to speak of. The staff were excellent, greeting us on arrival with maps, information about the area and coffee. The rooms though, could do with an upgrade on the maintenance - the DVD did'nt work, the chairs and the bedhead fitting needed attention, and the shelves in the kitchen were about to collapse. The manner of the staff, the space in the apartment and the location made up for the shortfalls. We loved the area; everything was nearby, the local traders were friendly and helpful and I would recommend a stay at Retrome to others.

"You get what you pay for."
This hotel was ok for the one night we stayed. As in the title, you get what you pay for. It was a cheap rate for a ok night. The A/C was broken and they had no other rooms to move us to so that was frustrating. Also the walls were quite thin so you could hear other guests in the hallways, but for an older building this should be expected. The room itself was a decent size and the bed was comfortable enough. If I was in Rome for one night and/or on a tight budget, I would probably stay here again.

The apartment / hotel was in a perfect location, a short walk to Colosseum and eventually walking to centre of town. I was met by Angela who was a delight and very welcoming. I loved the fact that it is a room in an apartment so there was a separate communal kitchen where I could store large bottles of water and Italian wine... The room was spacious, very clean and the bed was big and very comfortable, I had the room with the orange shower room. This was my first time in Rome and I could not have picked the perfect location. I liked the fact that I had my own keys for front door, I felt like I was living in Rome. I can't recommend it enough because of location. My only criticism is the inclusive breakfast which you need to get from a restaurant round the corner and I did not thing that was brilliant. I had option one which is a sweet croissant, and then cheese and meat in a very white sandwich plus one coffee and some strange looking juice. Retrome, perhaps you need to rethink where we should have breakfast but overall I had a wonderful experience.

The location of the hotel is quite good. The building is old and no elevator, but for Rome standards that's normal. The rooms are very comfortable in terms of size, and they feel renovated with a great sense of retro style. The service is quite friendly, although a bit unexperienced. Overall a great option.

Tøft og gjennomført retro konsert. Finte store rom med smart tv, fint bad og gratis AC. Mini kjøkken med kjøleskap på deling. Perfekt beliggenhet i rolige omgivelser 5 min gange fra Colosseum. Ikke et hotel i sin forstand med utleie av rom i en bolig kompleks og resepsjon med noen få timer kontortid ila dagen. Men veldig hyggelig og hjelpsom betjening. Frister for gjentagelse.

"Lite udda, men prisvärt"
Litet hotell som var nästan osynligt från den smala gatan. Vi såg bara vårt eget rum och den lilla receptionen så jag kan bara uttala mig om detta. (Det är ett lägenhetshotell.) Vårt rum var "oväntat": det var större än vi trott och inredningen var inte alls standard. Vi var bara där en natt så vi tyckte det var lite pittoreskt. Men om det var praktiskt för långa besök är kanske tveksamt. Det fanns två dubbelsängar, ett litet bord och några stolar och ett litet kök men ingen plats för förvaring, t ex lådor för kläder och saker. Badrummet var rent men enkelt, duschen hade takfönster som var öppet (kändes som man var utomhus) och det var svårt att få rätt temp på vattnet. Personalen vi träffade var väldigt professionella, flexibla och bra på engelska. Kort promenad till Colosseum. Prisvärt! Vi var nöjda.

"Pour les petits budgets c'est une bonne adresse"
Le rapport qualité prix est raisonnable, mais un grand point négatif sur la literie. La chambre est plutôt agréable même si on ne passe pas beaucoup de temps. Pour trouver l'hôtel ce pas vraiment évident car il n'y a pas de panneau, seule une petite plaque sur le côté de la porte. La situation géographique est plutôt pas mal à deux pas du colisée et d'une bouche de métro. dans le quartier une tratoria à l'angle d'une rue plus bas qui fait un peu cantine, mais qui rapport qualité prix est au top. D'ailleurs elle est toujours pleine et il faut avoir de la chance pour trouver une place. Mais on attend pas très longtemps car l'équipe est dynamique.

"Buen hotel aunque un poco caro."
La habitación es buena, espaciosa, limpia, iluminada. No tiene un formato como tal de hotel, sino como de mini departamentos, No hay alguien siempre en la recepción, por lo que no te pueden resolver lo que necesitas a cualquier hora, sino que debes esperar a que llegue alguien. Los baños son limpios y de buen gusto. Está muy cerca del colisseo, lo cual te da rápido acceso al metro y hay varias tienditas para comprar un poco más barato. A mí sí me gustó. La opinión de mi esposo es que es muy caro para no ser un "hotel" como tal. Y que la zona no es tan buena, porque a pesar de estar cerca del coliseo está en la parte no tan bonita y él que cargó las maletas le peso que No tuviera elevador.

"Wohnen bei den Römern"
Das RetRome ist ein großartiges Konzept und wirkt wie eine gute Mischung aus Couchsurfing und Hotel. Lage: Das Hotel liegt perfekt: Nur wenige Minuten vom Colloseum entfernt, ist von daher gut mit der U-Bahn zu erreichen, in der Umgebung gibt es viele Restaurants, Bars, Eisdiele, Apotheke, Bank, Post, kleine Supermärkte. Straße und Hausnummer sind leicht zu finden, auf das Hotel wird man nur durch die Klingel aufmerksam. Ankunftszeit sollte vorher den Mitarbeitern mitgeteilt werden, der Check-In ist sehr freundlich, es gibt sofort Tipps, was es so in der Umgebung gibt (unbedingt der Empfehlung Restaurant Luzzi folgen). Die Zimmer sind klein, das Bad sehr klein. Die Einrichtung ist einfach aber gepflegt mit liebevoller Retrodeko. Das Bett war ein Schlafsofa (deshalb Erinnerung an Coachsurfing). Bad und Zimmer sind sehr sauber, das Bad ist neu und modern eingerichtet. Über das Zimmer hinaus kann man eine kleine Gemeinschaftsküche mit Kaffeemaschine und Kühlschrank nutzen. Außerdem gibt es eine Terrasse auf der man sich gut aufhalten kann. Die wenigen Hotelzimmer liegen in einer Wohnung, d. h. oben und unten wohnen "normale Römer" und man selbst fühlt sich weniger als Touri, sondern als Mieter in dem Haus. Für Leute, die keine Riesenzimmer brauchen und mit einem bequemen Schlafsofa zufrieden sind, ist das Hotel aufgrund der Sauberkeit, Idee, den Tipps und der Lage sehr zu empfehlen. Außerdem war es sehr ruhig. Ich würde es definitiv wieder buchen.

"Excellent endroit !"
De prime abord très glauque avec une devanture sombre, on a découvert en entrant dans cet hôtel une atmosphère très sympa avec dès la réception une déco vintage très soignée. Ensuite les chambres, très lumineuses, calmes, et toutes très joliment décorées dans le même style vintage, salles de bain petites mais très propres et jolies. Literie confortable et clim fonctionnelle. Petit plus, le petit déjeuner étant en supplément avec un bon pour aller dans un bar voisin, il est possible de déjeuner sur la terrasse à disposition des clients ainsi que grâce au coin cuisine (frigo, machine à café, vaisselle et évier) à disposition. Un excellent rapport qualité/prix/emplacement, situé à 5 minutes à pied du Colisée. A recommander les yeux fermés... mais attention, ce n'est pas un hôtel, donc prestations limitées, mais service toutefois impeccable et disponibilité du personnel.
