Good place to stay in terms of cost and location. Small rooms, but comfortable. Bathroom is fine. Breakfast is pretty bad (and I know European breakfast very well) but they do bring that bad breakfast right to your room! Staff (of 1) was very nice and truly concerned that everything was ok. Would (will) use this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not too found of the owner. Pushy man and the breakfast was not good at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonable Spot in Rome"
I would classify this spot as more of the "guest house" than a hotel. The room was simple and clean. The breakfast delivered every morning was very nice but this is not a hotel in the traditional sense. It is a little hard to find - no sign, etc. It does not have any type of concierge or community spaces. The gentleman that handles check-in, breakfast […] delivery and maintenance was very nice but did not speak very much English so communication was a little tough. The location was pretty good for sightseeing - it is close to the Colosseum but there isn't very much nightlife in the area. It is affordable and nice if you are traveling with more than 2 people (we were a group of 3) and it was very difficult in our hotel search to find a place that accommodated 3 people that was not a hostel. Definitely good spot for staying with friends, not sure if I would recommend it for a romantic getaway. The beds were a little hard but the rest of the room/bathroom were nice and clean. The free wireless internet was also a HUGE plus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was very disappointed with Al Centro Storico. Our room was not as pictured on the website. It felt like a typical hotel room and the bed was very stiff. The bathroom was not completely clean on our arrival (though we were early). It was difficult to find the hotel, as the entrance is within a courtyard and up 4 stories, with no sign outside to indicate […] this. On arrival, the host was very nice, however it seemed he didn't know where we were supposed to stay. With only 5 rooms, this shouldn't be difficult. I did like the location of the hotel, as it is a short walk from both Termini station and the colloseum. It is nice that the breakfast is brought to your room, but the coffee orders were wrong both mornings and also not at the time that was requested (one day early and one day late). It was cheap, which I always appreciate, but I could have stayed at a hostel for the same price with better service/ammenities. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel but sketchy surroundings"
When I first arrived at the hotel I was extremely disappointed by the surrounding mainly because I was new to Rome and it was not at all what I expected. I felt like I was entering the "Projects" but the hotel staffs were friendly and kept to themselves, they gave us some great tips on subways and buses and all the major landmarks to hit. I wish the […] hotel was a bit manicured and didnt look too much like a motel but overall I was satisfied since we were close to the main subway station Termini and the Colosseum, unfortunately the area just looked a bit "ghetto". We were happy that there were good restaurants near by. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"No espereis ver un hotel"
Nos resultó muy complicado encontrarlo ya que está en un edificio de viviendas y esperabamos ver el rótulo de un hotel. El ascensor para montar de lado, problemático para personas con obesidad o discapacitadas. El desayuno muy abundante, te sobra comida. Muy bien situado, a 10 min del Coliseo y 5 min del metro. Se puede dejar el equipaje en "recepción" […] hasta la hora de marcharte al aeropuerto. El personal amable, de origen pakistani que se comunican contigo como pueden. Por lo demás para dos noches suficiente, quizá con un precio elevado para un lugar "tan extraño" como ese. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ottima posizione centrale"
Non è un vero e proprio hotel, infatti nei documenti affissi alla reception c'è scritto AFFITTA CAMERE...il gestore non parla molto bene l'italiano ma si fa capire, è stato molto gentile e sempre sorridente, bisogna suonare il campanello del portone centrale ed attendere un po' il gestore, che gentilmente vi viene a prendere e vi accompagna e vi spiega […] come utilizzare la varie chiavi che vi darà (portone grande, ascensore, portone piccolo e camera) si effettua il pagamento anticipato, la colazione viene servita in camera ed è abbondante, la camera è abbastanza spaziosa, il bagno aveva bisogno di un po' di manutenzione, nel giorno del check out bisogna lasciare la stanza per le 11.00 e ci hanno fatto anche la cortesia di tenerci i bagagli fino alle 17.00 (tranquillamente appoggiati e forse anche incustoditi in un insenatura del corridoio)...insomma senza troppe pretese e con spirito di adattamento ci siamo trovati bene!

"Günstiges Hotel in guter Lage"
Das Appartment befindet sich im 3. Stock. (Sehr schmaler & kleiner Lift vorhanden) Unser Zimmer hatte ein Fenster mit Blick in den Innenhof. Das Frühstück wird direkt an die Zimmertür gebracht (man wird am Vortag gefragt, welchen Kaffee man haben möchte und um welche Uhrzeit man das Frühstück serviert bekommen haben möchte). Das servierte Frühstück […] ist zahlreich, sodass wir jedes mal eine kleine Jause für zwischendurch mitnehmen konnten. Der Besitzer war sehr bemüht uns zu helfen. Gleich zu Beginn hat er uns einen Plan erklärt, wie man wohin kommt und wie lange es dauert. Am Zimmer stand ein PC mit WLAN, den man Gratis verwenden konnte. Da es mehr oder weniger vermietete Zimmer einer großen Wohnung sind, fühlt man sich trotzdem sehr wohl. Und wenn man, so wie wir es getan hatten, die Stadt sehen möchte, dann genügt diese Übernachtungsmöglichkeit allemal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
처음에 숙소전화번호가 호텔스닷컴에 나와있는것과 달라찾는데 어려움을 겪었습니다. 호텔간판도 없어 번지수보고 겨우찾을수있습니다. 3층에있구요. 엘리베이터는 매우작습니다. 문화충격이지만 이것도 나름 재밌네요. 주인분은 방글라데시분으로 매우친절하고 좋습니다. 방은 레드방이었는데 너무 뻘건색이라 좀 놀랐습니다. 배수상태는 그리좋지않구요. 호텔주변 뭐 별로없습니다만, 3번트램정류장과 만죠니 메트로 정류장과는 인접한편입니다. 아침 맛있고 많이줍니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to sleep but that's it."
The rooms have what you need, are clean and the hotel keeper does his best. This hotel are rooms in a big building, lots of noise between rooms which is a lack a privacy. Very well located. Just a place to sleep, nothing more. Internet is on and off. If you want enjoy the hotel for commodity it's not for you.Genuine Expedia guest review
호텔의 간판이 따로 없어서 찾는데 조금 어려움이 있었습니다. 건물 전체가 호텔이 아니라 일부 층만을 호텔로 사용하고 있었습니다. 150년 된 건물이라고 하지만 내부는 수리를 하여 깨끗하고 좋았습니다. TV도 크고 에어컨도 잘 작동되고 무료 wifi 사용가능하며 PC도 사용가능 하였습니다. 직접 룸으로 배달되는 조식도 좋았습니다. 다만 건물 전기 사정이 좋지않아 가끔 온수가 끊기고 현금 결제를 유도하는 것이 불만입니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nous sommes dans l'ensemble satisfait. Nous regrettons une faiblesse sur la propreté notamment dans la salle de bain, et dans la chambre, au niveau des sols. Le petit déjeuner est amené dans la chambre mais reste assez simple par rapport au prix de la nuit. La literie est excellente et la chambre bien insonorisée. Une connexion avec ordinateur inclus […] est disponible dans la chambre. Prévoir du liquide : la machine a CB ne fonctionnait pas ! L'emplacement est idéal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"mögligt badrum men bra läge"
Det som var bra med hotellet var läget för det priset. Nära till tunelbana, en station från centralen och några minuter till Vatikanen. Några minuter promenad till Colosseum, kunde även promenera till Vatikanen. MEN rummet kändes smutsigt, det var mögel i badrummet, toalettpappret tog slut och det fanns inga extrarullar på rummet. Frukosten åt vi i […] princip inget av utan var tvungna att äta det ute. Han som jobbade (själv?) var väldigt dålig på engelska så det var svårt med kommunikationen. De hade ingen dator i receptionen då vi behövde skriva ut boardingkorten så då fick vi leta upp en så kallad internet point. Överlag är jag missnöjd och kommer inte vilja bo där igen, även om det blir dyrare. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I was really upset with our stay at Al Centro Storico. First, it was difficult to find once we got to the address. You have to enter a courtyard and go up to the 4th floor. There is no sign indicating where to go. When we got there, it seemed the host wasn't sure where to put us. With only 5 rooms, this shouldn't be an issue. Our host was very friendly. He helped with our bags and showed us to our room. Our room did not look like the pictures on the website. It looked rather like a converted motel room. The bathroom was not fully clean (though we did arrive early). The breakfast is brought to your room in the morning, which is very nice, however our coffee drinks were wrong both days and also not at the requested time. One day we were woken up a half hour early and the other, it came a half hour late. I did enjoy the location as it was walking distance from both the colloseum and the Termini station, making our travels easy. It was a cheap stay, which is always appreciated on my budget, but I could have stayed at a hostel for a similar price with better ammenities and service.
"Great hotel hidden away but amongst everything"
11/04/14 Francesca B Noosa, Australia
This is a great find, Appel the concierge waits out the front of the building and escorts you in if you phone ahead of your arrival. The security is fantastic as there are 3 doors to go through. The lift is cute and a real novelty because it only fits 2 people inside. The rooms are large and clean and comfortable and breakfast is offered every morning. If you don't like milky coffee order the expresso and don't be shocked when you don't get milk or a bowl with the packet of cereal, there is plenty of other things to eat.
"Good experience.. Worth a try."
10/21/14 Kartikey M
The hotel wasn't that great on the whole but the hospitality of the guy managing it made up for it.. The hotel is situated in the best of the areas- next to a bus stop and a tram stop. 2 metro stations within 5 mins of walking, one of them being 'termini', the centre of time, which is connected to everywhere.. All in all a great experience.
"Serviceable but be aware."
05/31/14 Blutomattey Winnipeg, Canada
This is NOT a hotel...more of a guest house really. Several rooms in an apartment complex on the Via Merculana. The rooms were small but serviceable and clean. There was no hot water for my morning shower but there was the night before for my wife's. The location is decent: a brisk walk from the main train station, a light walk to the Colliseum and a 45 minute trudge from the Trevi fountain. The neighbourhood seemed quite nice and lively along the Via Mervulana but we didn't have the time to go local. Perhaps the worst thing about our stay was the strong body odor of the gentleman who both checked us in and out the next morning. Whoa Nelly!

"Forewarned is forearmed"
07/16/13 Owlhelm Worcester, United Kingdom
Best described as...interesting. First off, I have to say it's a very good location, and very good value for money. I'd probably return, knowing what I know now. We had the 3 person room (there were 3 of us!). Having read the issues of finding this 'hotel', I emailed the owner with a Google Streetview screenshot to confirm the location. He replied quickly confirming it. Also, having read that credit cards were not accepted, I emailed about this and was told that of course they were. So, we eventually found it - wish I'd taken the streetview pic. Be aware that the rooms are in a block of apartments, and you'll need to use the left hand set of buzzers. Be patient when buzzing...the rooms are on the 3rd floor and it'll take him a while to get down. He just managed to get himself and 3 cases into the lift (elevator). Smallest. Lift. Ever. Bedroom was ok, bathroom could use some tlc, especially mould and mildew remover around the shower and the ceiling above it flaking. Breakfast was interesting. Wasn't expecting much, but a perfectly acceptable continental breakfast was delivered at the time requested. Nowhere to eat it though. A small box of rice krispies was included. Unfortunately, the owner supplied no bowl (or milk) and when I asked for one, he suggested that I eat them dry, out of the packet. Oh well, it takes all sorts! The advertised internet wasn't working on the day we got there. I was assured that the 'technician' was sorting it out the next day - still wasn't working 2 days later. Also, the lock on our (sliding door) bathroom didn't work, and when I asked what was going on he said this was "normal". I think not. Came to settle up, and I presented my credit card. "Oh no" and a shake of the head was the response. I pointed out to him that I'd emailed previously and he'd said it was ok, and he reluctantly produced a credit card machine (although he insisted the local tax be paid by cash). I hope he replaced the keys (you need 4) that he dropped down the lift shaft when we were leaving, but I wouldn't be surprised if he hadn't! Basically a 1-man operation so don't expect miracles. Oh, and I suggest you wear earplugs to bed if you're sleeping there on Friday morning. He gets his weekly food delivery at 5:15am, and it takes forever for him to answer the door. The buzzer is VERY loud and the delivery person does a VERY good job of ringing it. As I said, everything considered, I'd stay again. Forewarned is forearmed.
"not a hotel"
04/09/13 Rifalda New York City, New York
I paid for a room in hotel in Rome and it was nothing close to it. the place has no name, no identification on the street. I was looking for it with paper on hand until a person open the door of a "condominium building" I asked and they directed me to a third floor on a very narrow lift (one person only) once I arrived there was and apartment door open and that was the "hotel" a flat that rents rooms with no other service around. The person in charge didn't speak English. total disaster. I am complaining to the agency that sold me this service as a hotel room, where there is like a clandestine place renting rooms inside a flat without any identification name.
03/24/13 Helsbels2013 Peterborough, United Kingdom
A very clean place. Room was not very big but large enough for resting after long walks around rome. Breakfast was continental and although not very exciting was sufficient ready for a busy day ahead. The chap on reception was very friendly and pleasant and helpful although English and Italian limited. All in all brilliant location to get to everywhere, conveniently located 15 min walk from termini station and around 10 mins from the collaseum. Pleasant neighbourhood, felt safe. Good value
"all fine with us."

Hi I travelled with my teenage daughter. It was a bit hard to find as we didn't understand the building. and stood outside looking at the bells!. However once we rang the bell we were welcomed warmly and shown every curtesy. They could do with a picture of the door so you understand where you ring!"We were pleased with the room. It was spacious and very clean.breakfast was delivered every morning.If you are on a buget this is a little gem. Nice clean towels sheets etc. The collesum was less than 3minutes away. Just around the corner!. We were stunned it was so near.The sights were easy to walk to.Just note the termini was a short walk(10 min or less) and the bus to the airport was $4 euros! compared to $48euros for a taxi! Also go to the termi to buy any bus tickets as they have better offers on for winter There was a good selection of shops to buy food very near and several resteruants. We found the best was manuelle? which is left out the door to the bottom of the road cross the road and go up to the top of road. It had wonderful home made foods especially desserts. I would say it is a grown up traveller place .Not a hotel but much much better than English B&B. All in al a little gem.

Strategic position. I was in Rome this month just before arriving in asia. I had promised the owner that I would modestly commended its structure, and the word ... maintained. I chose this B & B on the advice of Marco, a friend of mine who lives in Rome, in the historic center of Rome, but the main reason has been its strategic position in the historical center of the town, a few minutes from the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia. This is perfect for those who wish to visit the central areas of the city. The rooms, are nice and spacious, but my second room was equipped with a very new bathroom. I had a new room because I had a little problem with the bathroom, and the owner very kindly worked hard to find me a new location, in a very fast time ( thank you ). Breakfast is included in the price, and it's quite rich. So I want to recommend this B & B to all those who don't intend to spend a lot of euro, and want clean place, quiet and in a real strategic location. Bye Bye my beautiful ROMA, I miss you !
