We booked this hotel through a flights and hotel combo website, but everything was fine, which we were somewhat worried about. We arrived late, due to our flight, but there was someone on reception even then which was great (we discovered that at no matter what time there would be someone there). The hotel is slightly out of the main... More

I booked this myself for 4 nights and as the time drew close to our stay I had doubts due to some reviews I'd read. Whilst we were a approx. 10 min walk from the main parts of Rome we found it a lovely location as it was quiet and just far enough off the busy thoroughfare without being too... More

I wasn't very pleased with our stay. We were there for 2 nights to visit the sights of Rome. The hotel is located next to a auto repair shop on a sketchy street with absolutely no room to park. The staff is cold and unenthusiastic - which was the opposite of what we expected since the hotel name and concept... More

This hotel is a nice size for a European mid-range hotel. We stayed for three nights in a double plus single. (Couple and our adult daughter). The theme is very well done and we were incredibly comfortable in this hotel. The beds are very firm. The rooms are simply appointed and the bathroom is a great size. Our favorite features... More

This modern hotel is close to the Vatican and convenient if you are visiting that area of Rome. It's play on music is pretty cool with snare drums as nightstands and the disco ball in the bathroom! Highly recommended!

Many thanks to all at Best Western Rome Franklin Feel the sound on our 1st trip to Rome. Hotel is wee bit out of way (Taxi form Rome main train station approx 20 euros). However we took the nearest metro and this was no problem as only 5 minute walk and the hotel is in very good and busy area.... More

This hotel is very nice. The price was a bargain for such a great place. The room was very clean and looked pretty. It was in a good location to the train and the Vatican Museum. There were many shops and restaurants nearby. They have lots of CD's to listen to music.
