I liked the hotel. The first night we had a room with balcony, however the airconditioning was broken so we asked for another room. This room was also large and very nicely decorated. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk away from Termini station in a local area. The area around the station is not the best area of the city. But we never felt unsave. Breakfast was fine, rooms are very clean and nice. Rome was fantastic but somewhat inconvenient to get around to the main tourist sites in Rome from the hotel. If you need to go back to the hotel during the day I would not recommend it to you. But if you only need the hotel to sleep. It's a good hotel.
Wonderful breakfast location in a garden on the top of the hotel, lot of light view on the city: nice way to wake up!!! Really comfortable hotel, near the train station.
It was happy to stay at the hotel "Ateneo Garden Palace". The hotel was not so far from Termini station(mother and I used to go there by walk within 5-10 min) and by #492 bus we could reach the city center easily. The room was quiet and clean. The bathroom was also clean and luxurious. My mother and I were satisfied with the breakfast. Staffs were exellent but they had little information of public transfortion and seldom smiled. Anyway thank you, venere.com, without you I couldn't have finished my travel happy (I reseved "Ateneo Garden Palace" through your site in the morning of the day when my mother and I had been out of another hotel in Rome )
Lovely hotel. Helpful staff. Excellent location. Good food. Recommend this hotel to anyone
But if you want to try restaurants and pubs where the locals go, then you'll enjoy the San Lorenzo neighborhood. And you'll also get a much better room for the same money. The superior rooms are a size that you'll hardly find in Rome for this price, and, in general, the hotel has a well kept, modern and clean look as far as furnishing and bathroom fixtures. The venere web site has a problem though: it does not let you specify double with two small beds vs. "matrimoniale" (one big bed). I wanted a matrimoniale but ended up with a reservation for a room with two twin beds (in the end, they were able to accomodate my request when I showed up, but the reservation was inaccurate).
My husband was attending a conference at the University Sapienza for a few days. I was on my own to tour the city. The desk help was very knowledgeable with directions and recommendations. The breakfast area was lovely but the variety of choices was not plentiful. Again, the service personnel were helpful. The neighborhood was convenient to the University but not to tourist areas.
Bautiful accommodation for me and my friends. Five minutes' walk from Termini station. Good rooms, polite staff and absolutely recommend.
Out of the Termini station, five minutes' walk, you will find the Hotel Ateneo. I had booked two standard-double rooms for me and my friends and we got really good rooms. Cost per night/person including breakfast about €40.
Customer service was excellent. Rooms were very clean, and housekeeping kept my room spotless! It felt like home away from home!
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights as part of a Trafalgar tour. Our room was on the ground floor so had french doors out to a very private patio - nice to sit out in the evening. The room itself was very comfortable, clean and with a full bathroom with tub. Others were not so lucky having only a very small shower. The breakfast was the usual variety of pastries, cereal, yogurt, etc which is more than enough for me. The staff were very friendly even if they didn't all know alot of english - they had our keys out and ready for us before we even asked! There was only one computer set up with internet in the lobby but at least it worked - in other hotels we weren't so lucky. The hotel itself was conveniently located near the Termini train station where one could get on the Metro or catch a bus to almost anywhere in the city. There were also restaurants and grocery/wine stores handy. All in all we enjoyed our stay - this hotel had everything we needed.
Liked very much the Hotel Ateneo Garden Palace. We enjoyed very much the private terrace to the interior garden with jasmine veranda. The personnel is professional and kind. About the location, it is correct enough with a bus stop nearby and about 15 minutes walk to Termini station. Many restaurants and terrace cafÃ©s around. Only the breakfast is a little poor, but it is compensated by the other mentioned good qualitites.
This hotel was fine for a two-night stay at the beginning of our tour. My single room was clean and comfortable. People complaining about bedbugs should be aware that all over Italy, there are small red ants that live inside travertine. If you sit on walls made of this, you will bring the ants back with you, and they will bite! There is graffiti all over Rome, it is not gang-related but political, so no need to be afraid. There is no restaurant at the hotel apart from the buffet breakfast, but there are a few within walking distance.
Stayed at Ateneo Palace hotel in december 2012 with friends. The rooms and bathrooms we had were very clean and spacious. Adequate-size elevator to rooms. The buffet-style breakfast on the roof garden was italian coffee, capuccino, bread, cereals, eggs and ham. Location is very convenient to reach the Termini Station, very close to the Metro Station Termini. I definitely recommend.
I have stayed at this hotel many times, it was found by my daughter who lives nearby. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and have always been very accommodating to me. There are lots of good restaurants in the area, great beautican oppposite and it is a convenient, quiet base. It is also really good to come to a hotel that does not feel like a chain, where the staff are the same and recognise you when you come back.
Me and my family just got back from a tour in Italy , In Rome we stayed at this hotel which we rated as one of the best of the many we stayed in . Friendly very available staff that were more than happy to help us in any query we had . The hotel is very central and a good point of the city to access all parts of Rome with the metropolitan at a few minutes of distance . Rooms very clean and well taken care of , spacious .. we honestly could not have asked for more. we highly reccomend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Rome . We are all sorry to be back home , but almost certainly we shall return next summer if not before . Exceptional staff ..really ready to assist , we don't speak Italian , but it was no problem at all .
Everything was ok, the service was good, the room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was generous and the hotel is really nice. Perhaps the surroundings are not exactly in a very nice area of the city, but can be appreciated by people who need to be close to the Termini Rail Station.
We stayed for four nights to attend a Conference nearby. For us then the location was perfect, just a few minutes walk. For sightseeing, we found it great – once we had found the shortcut through the tunnel under the Termini main station. We booked the hotel partly as it was the chosen one for conference delegates, and also because not knowing Rome it seemed reasonably priced and in the right area for our convenience We found the hotel comfortable, if basic. Our double room was 150 euros (with a conference discount). It was small but perfectly adequate. We were delighted to find a private foliage covered balcony through the double French windows, complete with table and two chairs, overlooking a small, tree covered private square. Furnishings were adequate and included a mini fridge. (We already knew via this site that there were no tea and coffee making facilities, so our trusty travel kettle came into its own, and the fridge kept milk etc chilled.) The room was clean and cleaned during our stay. The bed was, fortunately, very comfortable. I was able to access the wi-fi, and also the staff assisted me to use (foc) the downstairs public computers to check in online and print off our boarding cards. (always good that is!) The front desk staff when I arrived spoke very little English, but we managed between us, and they appreciated our trying to speak Italian, even if only the basic civilities. Continental Breakfast is served in a fourth floor conservatory type room, with trees and plants abounding, which we found very fresh and pleasant in the mornings. We were particularly impressed by the quietness of the area, and slept soundly, some colleagues staying in cheaper facilities had much noisier experiences. The Hotel doesn’t have its own restaurant but there are several small family owned trattorias within 5 minutes walk, where we had delightful meals, with plentiful local wine, and very cheap bills.
pleasant roof garden surrounded by jasmine, comfortable room, bathroom ok, friendly staff, good breakfast, quiet neighborhood, excellent restaurant across the street (Efeso), parking is not always easy to find
Hotel very clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful. Good selection of food.
Ok, so back in Rome again! And this time we got it right! Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and what a little gem we found! And finally a room where we both fit in together. We even had a little private pateo where we sat one of the evenings. This hotel has it all as far as I am concerned. Location; walking distance from the central station and easy to get to all the main attractions and shops. It is in a quiet street so no noice at night. Very friendly staff that helped us a lot when we had to spend the first two days trying to get my suitcase back from Airfrance! Breakfast: better than most ones I had in Italy. We really enjoyed our stay.
Very nice stay, next to S.Lorenzo quarter. Practical because near to Termini train station and. A bit far from center.
I woulld like to thank you from Hotel Staff who helped us to go to hospital, then called a private doctor to come to our room to visit my wife who was very sick. Also I would like to thank you Hotel Staff who took me to pharmacy to buy medicine, thank you very much.
Good, nice and clean hotel. The rooms where always clean. Breakfast was good, but could better for a 4 stars hotel. Good hotel for his price.
I spent a week-end in Rome with my partner and I had the pleasure to stay in such a cosy hotel. Our room (312) was very big with a window overlooking a quiet and beauiful courtyard. Staff was extremly helpful and in particular I would like to thank Valentina who went over her way to help with all the requests we had. Hotel has not restuarant but there are plenty around so you should not be worried for that Very well connected with public transportation. Rich breakfast served on a beautiful roof garden Mike
Hotel is not in the center of the city just outside the wall but near the station. this is the second time I stayed in Rome. the hotel provides good breakfast. And the room location is very quite. room is big. good value/price ratio.
