Hotel California, Rome
do not book here
worst experience. spent 9 days in italy. last day was at hotel California. I wanted to pay for another room somewhere else, my husband said just stay. blankets in the closet were not even folded, just tossed in there. bugs came flying out of the closet when I opened the doors. neither one of us ended up sleeping that night. Just couldn't wait for that morning train to the airport. should have slept at the airport.

Very Good8.0
Convenient for 1st time traveller in Rome
Location is great - Save Time & $$ on transportation. Near train station & restaurants. But for light sleeper, the noise along the tram rail can be a little disturbing.
STEVEN, us1 night romance trip
Hotel California, Rome
My worst stay ever! Very old, dirty and not comfortable room and bathroom. Smell in room, noisy area, no wifi in the room. Not worth for that price! Only one positive that this hotel has its location near Roma termini and easy to get.
Nino, us1 night family trip
Hotel California, Rome
Great location
Great location two blocks away from Termini station on a nice street. The reception and the elevator have seen better days but the rooms and bathrooms are updated, clean and comfortable. Great air conditioning. The personnel is welcoming and accommodating. We arrived early and the room was not ready and they allowed us to leave the luggage behind the desk until check in time. Great hotel for the price!
