Profile: Rome Termini Station

Profile: Rome Termini Station

Fronted by a great glass hall and topped by a cantilevered canopy, Rome Termini Station’s modernist vibe blends seamlessly with its classical leanings, and newly arrived visitors will be delighted to discover that they can grab an authentic Italian gelato, espresso, or slice of pizza in the Forum Termini before even leaving the station.

Just across the street from the station and next to the Baths of Diocletian is the National Roman Museum, housed in a 19th-century Neo-Renaissance palace. The museum showcases Roman and Greek artifacts that date back to the 2nd century BC, including statuary, paintings, and the Grottarossa Mummy.

    Good hotel option

    We stayed in the hotel for just one night (our flight was leaving from Rome early in the morning). I liked almost everything about the hotel: location, service at the front desk, rooms, a concept of not being a typical hotel, etc, and would stay here again. However, we were here in June during the heat wave and the AC just couldn’t help with the heat, as hard as it worked. It was a very hot night. Not sure that’s the problem that can be solved (maybe different location of the AC until or a newer model) but i am recommending the hotel despite this. We were leaving too early to enjoy the breakfast.

    Great place, near train station

    Good location, close but not too close to the train station. People were helpful, and there is an excellent trattoria a few doors down, and cheap laundry service a block away. It made for the perfect week in Rome before a week in Abruzzo.

    Not at all what I had expected

    This would have been my second stay at this hotel. My first one was a week prior, and it was a good stay. However, when I arrived this second time, I was notified that there had been a leak in the room in which I was supposed to stay, and they had already booked me in another hotel. I was fine with that because a leak isn't their fault. Krishia was the young woman at the front desk, and she was very helpful. She walked me to the other hotel around the corner. Without going into a ton of detail, that hotel was a dump. I was thoroughly disappointed that I was booked into something that was of such glaringly less value and comfort than what I had booked. Seriously, it was bad. I ended up leaving and going to a new hotel of my own choosing. With all of this in mind, I don't think I would book a stay here again.

    Quick overnight stay

    I stayed here my first night in Rome. It is reasonably close (less than 2k) to the Tiburtina bus station, out of which I was traveling the next day. The room was comfortable and clean. It felt a little stuffy at night, yet I couldn't open the balcony door because there were mosquitos. A traditional Italian breakfast is delivered to your room at your time of choosing. It was a lovely touch.

    Verified guest review

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The room was spotless clean and with a fresh feel. Furniture was new and in good state. Bed was comfortable. WiFi was stable and provided good level of connectivity. Bathroom was reasonably large (which means larger than simply not cramped) and fully equipped (yes, also a bidet, Italian style, cherish it ye foreign traveller :-) ). Wide shower. Downside, the only of the whole stay: water flux was not great, unfortunately, so much that removing the soap was a somewhat lengthy affair. They opted not to have a breakfast room and bring the breakfast directly in your room. You opt for beverages the evening/night and you can choose among several items (not limited to just one choice, so that you do not feel at all pushed to make hard choices). Food is all on the sweet side such as jam, bread, croissant, Nutella(TM), butter and so forth. All you can ask for. Perfect for me, maybe less for people loving also some salty items. The system saves floor space to the owners and is really convenient, unless you are the kind of person liking to wander a buffet and loading several types of foods each trip. Not me, given also the fact that the provided food is more than enough for a good morning start. In your room you have a large dish that can accommodate your laptop and the breakfast tray at the same time, in case you wonder. The TV provides a large selection of channels, including some popular international services. Room was quiet. Location not central, but very near to Termini.
