Reasonable for the price
The staff was excellent, very helpful. Spoke reasonable English. The room was okay, but it was warm. The a/c was regulated, but if I'd read the welcome brochure in the room, all I had to do was call and ask them to turn it down. Didn't discover that until I was about to leave. The bed was hard and not very comfortable. The location was terrible for getting around. Had to take a bus or taxi to get to any of the sites and I found the bus system difficult to figure out. I wouldn't stay here again only because of the location. The rest I could have lived with.

Nice for a quieter stay in Rome
We stayed here for our last few nights in Rome - it is a very nice and clean hotel, but I wouldn't recommend if you are looking to see the touristy sights in the city just because it is a little further away and not as accessible by train. It was nice and quiet for our stay and the staff was very helpful - quick to help with arranging a taxi if needed. The nearest Metro station is about a 10-15 minute walk around the corner, which isn't terrible if you don't mind the walk.

Nice Place
The room was amazing, especially for the price. The metro is a hike to get to, but all and all a great hotel.

Hotel Caravel, Rome
Not a safe area to walk around at night and no late night food options. No where near the main tourist attractions in Rome. The breakfast was nothing special, continental fruits and baked good. The smell wafted from the sewage through our bathroom which was unfortunate - not a big deal when the bathroom door was closed at least. OK for business travelers.

Clean but a bit inconvenient
Price is very reasonable for such a clean hotel with decent free breakfast, although location is a bit inconvenient.
