"Cosmos is not a hotel, its more like a hostel"
Check in, you must call the owner of the hotel prior to arrival. The owner is not usually at the hotel. If you don't have access to a telephone, then this is a problem. Lucky, my taxi driver called the owner and spoke with her in Italian. I waited 30 minutes for the owner to show up and give me the keys. There are so many keys in order to access this […] hotel. If you get locked out, then you are out of luck because the owner is never there. She requested cash instead of charging my credit card for the room. This was another issue because I expected to pay by card. The policy is that this is a non smoking hotel, but this is not true. The room smelled like smoke, so I requested another room, which also smelled of smoke. The owner spoke very fast and her English skills were very limited. Cosmos looks and feels like a hostel. I was only allowed one towel per day. If you requested another, then there is an extra charge. I didn't want housekeeping, but they insisted on cleaning my room. I think it was to conserve the lights and check up on you. Cons: Cosmos is located in a poor area, which is why there are so many locks on the door. As a single female, I did walk back to the hotel very late, so it is possible. Just use streets smarts. The hotel looks worse than the pictures. The rooms are very outdated and dusty. I didn't shower during my 5 night stay, like in a rundown hostel. Pros:Its within a 10 minute walk to the coliseum. I would not recommend Cosmos to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay somewhere else"
Very disappointed with my stay. This is my fault for trying to save money. This is really not a Hotel or B&B as is stated. This is just a Condo reconfigured to have 5 independent rooms, no WiFi .The lady wanted cash but I refused, then she wanted me to pay the taxes in cash, and I refused. Lucky, because she had already charged the taxes on the credit […] card. I had noticed a discrepancy in the Total and questioned this, but she acted like that was just the exchange rate. I knew she was lying and I refused to give any additional funds. Pay more to stay at a real Hotel with better comfort / service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loud and overrated"
Stayed here in October 2012. I have stayed at many of these budget hotels/hostels throughout Europe and the 3.8/5 rating as of the writing of this review is way too high. The hotel is clean and conveniently located next to the metro. However, the street traffic is loud by any western European standard. There's traffic throughout the day and most of […] the evening on road that runs in front of the hotel. Since the rooms are located on the second floor (US system) and floor 1 (Italy system), most of the sound travels there, even with windows shut. When i stayed in October 2012, the central air conditioning had been shut off so it was very muggy in the room with the windows shut. Also, I stayed here for 3 nights and the towels were only replaced once...although this is has happened to me in other places in Europe...so not that big of a deal. For breakfast, you get a ticket for a coffee/tea and a pastry at the coffee shop located 1 minute away from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Having previously read some poor reviews I had doubts about staying at Cosmos, which were quickly allayed. To start with, the location is very convenient - just a couple of minutes' walk from either Vittorio Emmanuele or the Manzoni Metro stations, as well as being just a ten-fifteen minute walk from the Colosseum. There is a large supermarket about […] a five minute walk away. The room itself was clean and very large/nicely decorated considering the amount we were paying! We'd booked a room with a shared bathroom, but in fact our room had its own en-suite with shower (I suppose we were given a free upgrade). The lady who greeted us was friendly and very helpful. She arrived on time to check us in (other B&Bs hadn't been so punctual), and gave us a map of Rome along with plenty of information about the local area and places to visit. We would happily stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to get around Rome."
Only 3 rooms in the hotel - it really is a B&B, however, it was clean, comfortable, and very secure. There are a heavy pair of external doors that close in the evening, and the location is very secure. The only downside was that the mini bar didn't get re stocked - very minor point though. Also there is a great shop right next to the hotel, so any budget […] travellers, don't worry about toiletries, everything you could ever need is available, and at regular prices also! Breakfast is included at a sister establishment up the street. Unfortunately, we did not partake. 5 minute walk maximum to Mazoni Metro station, which is great, and you can walk to the Colosseum in 8 minutes from the hotel. Overall, a great wee place for a couple of nights stay in Rome. Would use again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Κοντά σε κάποια σημαντικά αξιοθέατα."
We basically had a pleasant stay in the hotel. It might be an appartment which has 5 rooms inside, but in general it was a good choice. The owner wasn't there at all time but the price is very good for the services it provides and it's close to metro station and some good sights. It's also a very safe place to sleep, due to it's tough outdoors with […] high security lock it has at the entrance. Good for couples and families. Forgot to say that it was very clean, with daily tiding up the room. The only disadvantage it was the breakfast. Horrible...! In general, a good choice. I would go to stay again if i went again to Rome. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Accueil, conseils, emplacement --> parfait !"
Sans carte aucun soucis pour trouver facilement Le Cosmos ( s'arrêter station Manzoni, et c'est la bonne rue). En arrivant, un accueil parfait, on nous a fournit une carte et l'hôte nous a conseillé tout un parcours à faire pour visiter Rome et les monuments les plus importants à voir. La chambre avait une taille tout à fait convenable (nous y venions […] que pour dormir ), la salle d'eau ( privative avec sèche cheveux ) était assez petite mais bien suffisante et toute neuve. L'ensemble était très bien entretenu et très propre ( serviette et savon mis à disposition ). Tous les jours la chambre était nettoyée. Coffre fort à votre disposition gratuitement. Inconvénient : pas de double vitrage et rue très passagère donc un peu bruyant pour ceux qui ont le sommeil léger mais on s'y fait. Le matin avec des tickets nous allions prendre notre petit dej dans un café toute la semaine et dans un autre le dimanche, ceux-ci conseillés par la propriétaire.Très bonnes viennoiseries, avec cappuccino, caffe latte, latte macchiato. Pour l'emplacement de l'hôtel, il est un petit peu excentré mais tout est faisable à pied du Cosmos. A 10 min à pieds du Colisée, à 5 min de Ste Marie Majeure et St Jean de Latran . Au final un emplacement plus que correct, un très bon rapport qualité/ prix et une hôte adorable et de très bon conseil ! Nous y retournerons sans hésiter pour notre prochain séjour à Rome.

Een zeer goed B&B tegen een zeer goede prijs. Het ontbijt is ergens anders en dat was even zoeken. Cosmos ligt vlakbij een metrostation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good price to quality"
We had our reservation in B&B Cosmos, but we were relocated to B&B Rudy, which was a good thing, cause it was closer to Termini station. Its in kinda chinese neigbourhood. We got free breakfast cause of relocation. Breakfast was just croissant and coffee, We expected more, but it was for free, so We were ok with that. Room was noisy, cause of busy street - Via Napoleone III. Overall good experience, we just sleep there :) recommended!

I was accomodated in Cosmos having a reservation in Rudy B&B. The hotel is located farther from the city than Rudy, so I was not happy to be relocated. The room was very, very noisy because of a rather busy street behind the window. Next problem was cleaning - generally the room was clean, but toilet bowl was dirty on the day I arrived and was not cleaned in the next day although there was cleaning in the room so I had to clean it myself, which was a little bit ugly. I would not choose that hotel again.

Esse hotel é bom localizado, perto dos pontos turisticos e de cafes e restaurantes. Ele não parece um hotel e não tem café da manhã, mas vale o custo beneficio. O atendimento é super bom e sempre estão prontos para ajudar.

Hotel com quartos amplos, limpos e com boa localização, sendo possível ir a vários lugares a pé, como o coliseu por exemplo. Hotel com bom atendimento e a proprietária sempre disposta a ajudar. Único problema é que eles só aceitavam dinheiro como forma de pagamento.

Un piccolo B and B ( 5 camere), vivino a S. Giovanni in Laterano e a Santa Maria Maggiore, dietro il Colosseo circa 700 m, accanto alla stazione metro A (Manzoni), con il quale si va in via Ottaviano per basilica S. Pietro.B and B si trova in primo piano, camere pulite, TV, cassaforte, bagno piccolo-pulito. In corridoio macchina per caffè, brico, caffè, te, microonde, fon, mappe della città. Prezzo modesto, a marzo per camera doppia ho pagato 39 Euro. Vale la pena

Il bed and breakfast si trova a due passi dalla stazione metro "Manzoni". Abbastanza vicino anche alla stazione Termini,da cui è possibile arrivare con treni o bus agli aeroporti! Il bed and breakfast è pulito,accogliente! La camera molto ampia,dotata di frigo bar. Il bagno è grande ,pulito,dotato di doccia e asciugacapelli. Unica pecca,la colazione.Un pò misera.
