"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good experience. Small hotel with great service; very helpful staff. The location is superb and the hotel perfectly suits the purpose for the sightseeing tourist. Would definitely come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Only good aspect is the location."
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great simple hotel close to the colosseum"
Great room, really clean, great price and really close to the colosseum. Friendly helpful staff that gave us a little map with recommended places to eat and other useful things. The recommended places were great, tasty local and a great prices!! Highly recommend!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location + good price + good service"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Super séjour, hotel au pied du Colysée. Bar à vin très sympa à deux pas de l'hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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.

"Great location & clean rooms"
Great location right behid Colosseum & subway station, walk distance to many attractions, plenty of restaurants, bars and café nearby. Entering the building one feels a bit hesitant as it looks a bit old. But entering the room one gets positively surprised. Stuff is very helpful and accommodatingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Et godt hotel i et dejlig roligt område meget tæt på colosseo. Perfekt beliggenhed med gå afstand til stort set alle seværdigheder. Der er ikke køleskab på værelset, men der er et fælles køkken med et køleskab. Der er ca 3 værelser til et fælleskøkken. Morgenmaden er ok, men hvis man er til et godt solidt morgenmåltidsom os, bliver du skuffet. Vi blev […] slet ikke mætte. Derimod ligger der en super restaurent Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything we could have hoped for"
01/09/15 LisaHBonn_Germany Bonn, Germany
First and foremost, we were thrilled with the location and the reasonable price! A 5 minute walk from the coliseum, but in a neighborhood that we felt wasn't overly touristy. In the restaurants in the evening, you certainly heard more Italian than English. The apartment itself (#8) was quite large, with two bedrooms, a large sitting room, and a nice kitchen. The building itself I believe included mostly permanent residents and a couple of rented units, and had quite a lot of charm. We were with two children, so we didn't really cook any extravagant meals, so I can't say really how well equipped the kitchen was, but what we needed was there (dishwasher, cleaning supplies, coffee filters, sugar). The front reception was very nice, and because they are not always there, they give you a phone number to contact them. I am really not sure I can think of anything bad to say about this place.
"Fantastic, friendly and stylish hotel - brilliant staff"
01/01/15 caireen2015 London, United Kingdom
We loved this hotel and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it. It made our stay in Rome so much more special. It is a very stylish but basic hotel. We appreciated the kitchen and the charming little roof terrace. The location couldn't have been better and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable and gave us some brilliant bar and restaurant recommendations. We can't wait to go back.
"excellent location, lovely people"

The Retrome apartment was lovely, perfect location only 5 minutes away from the Colosseum and all the major ruins. Apartment was spacious, comfy beds, with everything you would need for a comfortable and retro-tastic stay. Staff were very helpful and very friendly. Cant fault this place at all.
"RetRome - another great reason to return to Rome"
12/31/14 Shineygirl Richmond, Canada
We stayed at the Colloseum Garden II Apartment for 4 nights. It was excellent. The location is great with lots of restaurants and grocery stores just a short walk away. The Colloseum is around the corner, and the metro is about a 10 min walk away - not that we used it as we walked everywhere. The apartment is very well equipped. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything that you need. Christina is exceptionally helpful and very friendly. Thank you so much for making our trip to Rome so great.
"Love the hotel, and the location"
11/11/14 Truenomads World
The hotel was great. the rooms very large, as well as the bathrooms, and very nice and clean. The staff (HI Sandra!), were super nice and helpful. They helped me find train times for my next trip, as well as pointed out places to eat on the map. My room came with a bottle of wine and some grapes, as well as makings for espresso and tea. The internet as great, thankfully. I would definitely stay again, in fact I booked their sister hotel in Barcelona! Thanks! I should also mention their Fiat tours of Rome. This has to be the best way to see Rome, and I loved it. We drove around in tiny vintage Fiat 500, and people looked at us like we were celebrities. I would recommend this tour to ANYONE. They even let you drive, and give you good history of the city I had no idea about!
"Amazing accommodation right behind the Colosseum"
11/10/14 Dino G
The apartment was really nice and centrally located, with a great atmosphere. It was well furnished and clean. It has two master bedrooms, a living room, nice bathroom and kitchen. I would highly recommend this accommodation because the price value is really good.
"Excellent place to stay!"
11/07/14 RJD333 Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The hotel is situated nearby the Colosseum, which makes it a perfect place for visiting this + the other 'must see' attractions. The rooms are clean, spacious and decorated in a retro style. Angela is the friendly receptionist and through her we got excellent tips for restaurants and public transport. I highly recommend Retrome if you visit Rome.
"Wow - Feel at Rome"
10/23/14 79Matan_2014 Amsterdam
I have stayed with my girlfriend at this lovely place and we fell in love. Not only in Rome, but with this hotel and the neighborhood. Something just felt right from the first moment. The lovely building, the gorgeous style and design of the hotel, the comfortable beds and superb location. If I could live here I would. The staff provided a good and friendly service and everything was always clean. I already booked Retrome for my next weekend in their other location in Barcelona.

when i choose this apartment , i thought its was looks so great in the picture and a lot of good commends, after we check in the apartment, we are so upset and disappointed, they giving us the basement apartment which was only our unit alone, the stair case is dark ( the light was broken) our neighbour room was empty with dirt and spider net around the door, in our unit, the floor was dirty, the washing machine is old and leaking,the shower area only 2 ft by 2 ft( damn small ), they not really cleaning this apartment daily, we rent it for 5 nights,they only came in on third night ,leave us a new small towel (1 piece) and 1 row of toilet paper. this apartment is lousy, as we know there are others apartments but due to fully booked,they given us this lousy apartment, don't risk your chance at this hotel, you may get the normal nice unit if you lucky, like us, we are so unlucky ,there gave us this lousy apartment, so upset, i won't recommend to anyone!!
"Very convenient location, room is cool decorated and got anything you need! Little gem"
10/17/14 Walt W
My fiancé and I stayed at Retrome in Colosseum for five days and had a blast. The location was perfect; walking distance to all major historic sites and touristic hotspots. The area had a very residential look and feel, with nice local bakeries, coffeebars and wineshops. Also lots of great restaurants stonethrow away (Luzzi and Li Rioni!). The B&B is charming and nice decorated. Really good beds (I believe memory foam matrasses), very welcome after long days and nights in the eternal city. :-) An urban oasis! Would def stay here again.
