"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
"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
"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.

Vi hadde et kort opphold på vei hjem fra ferie. Hyggelig resepsjonist og godt vedlikeholdt rom. Noe mindre rom enn antatt ved bestilling.Genuine Hotels.com 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

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"

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.

"Great place to stay in Rome"
09/22/14 Worminger Singapore, Singapore
Really great find. Superb location, friendly and helpful staff. Great price and way better than many places charging a lot, lot more. Clean and bright. Good sized rooms available. Proper working air cons!!! Not negatives for me but... Bathrooms are small, those of ampler proportions may find them a tight squeeze. The small double is indeed small. Stairs need to be negotiated. However overall a far better experience than I expected for the price.
"Great location, quiet neighborhood"

My family of four stayed at Retrome for a week back in July. This place was highly recommended by a good friend who said I wouldn't be disappointed. Boy, was she right! The staff Sandra, Angela and the IT/maintenance man were exceptional. We booked the apt. which consisted of 2 bedrooms, bath and full kitchen which was located on the 4th floor. Thankfully, there is a lift if you didn't want to take the stairs. What we liked is that the apt. was quite clean and welcoming. There are 2 balconies which one of them looks out to the street and the to gelato store at the corner. The neighborhood is quiet and away from tourist groups. There are several restaurants, minimarket, supermarket, tobacco shop, etc. all within walking distance. The Colloseum , Roman Forum, Palatine Hill is about a 10 min. walk and the Metro is across from the Colloseum. Retrome was efficient in handling our transportation to and from the airport. This of course is optional. The maps the staff gave out were quite helpful and WIFI connection worked well. I have raved about this place to other family and friends. I would stay at this place again. Perhaps, I'll stay at their sister hotel in Barcelona one day. Please consider staying here; you won't regret it.
"Way better than expected!"

Retrome is not the typical Hotel place,yes BUT this does not mean it is not the best option. It's VERY close to the coliseum and a Gelato place right down the corner. If you haven't tried this type of Hostels as they call in Europe this one won't disappoint you. The AC was GREAT in the hot night of August and the beds and showers super clean. It is not the typical full service hotel but for the price it does what's necessary. They do offer breakfast and I recommend you get it bc there is not a lot of cafeterias down that area, the restaurants open at 11 so get the simple Italian breakfast there. The staff helped us a lot with planning, maps,phone calls and printing things we needed wit no hesitation at all. Their costumer service for sure will make me come back, it was great.The rooms is very small and just with enough amenities for you to crash, shower and go. The Wi-Fi worked very well in room too which is a PLUS! I will go back to this same RETRome bc it was Clean, affordable, simple and Great location. They even hold our luggage after we checked out for free. Very clean and modern decor in hotel I really enjoyed.

Me and my boyfriend stayed for two nights. It was such a lovely room with unique retro themes, clean and tidy, also very comfy beds with a TV and ensuite bathroom. The staff are so friendly, giving you a map of Rome upon arrival, very useful! And it is a perfect location! A minute walk from the colosseum! With great restaurants near by and much more

Stopped here whilst in Rome, the reception is nicely set out and the staff were friendly and eager to help. The rooms were clean and the retro theme is really cute, just be prepared to climb a few stairs to get to your room. The included breakfast was at a nearby cafe and was also very nice, when we first arrived we were given a map and some recommendations for eating and we were not disappointed.

This is a nicely located B&B close to the Colosseum, with cool an unique rooms in a quiet area thouge it is not very close when it comes to other attractions an nightlife. cleen room with cool design. Unfortuately the beds are not very comfortable which caused bad sleep and backache. Breakfast was not included, but there is a tiny kitchen in the hallway where you can store your food in a refrigerator. Close to a cheap an popular italian restaurant.
