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.

The location, just outside the city wall, is very interesting and we enjoyed walking alongside that ancient wall. There are good restaurants just a few steps away.

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).




"Pleasant roof garden by GuestReview"

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




"A pleasant hotel by TripAdvisor"

My wife and I stayed for two nights in Room 310 at the Ateneo Garden Palace Hotel with Trafalgar Tours. It is located about 20 minutes walk from Termini train station. The room and bathroom exceeded our expectations because they were reasonably large (see photo), it appeared to be freshly renovated, and it overlooked the garden, so it was quiet and comfortable. We spoke with a couple who had a room across the hall who were not happy with the street noise. Air conditioning was available, but we preferred to leave the window open. We appreciated the availability of many electric outlets around the room because we often were charging two computers, a hand phone, and a digital camera all at once. We especially appreciated the free wireless Internet access in the lobby. The refrigerator in the room kept things cold, but they did not have a freezer in the hotel for our ice pack. So they kept the ice pack in ice and gave it to us on our departure. The few channels on the TV were all Italian language channels. The breakfast included cereal, ham, cheese, and yoghurt. There is a small neighborhood about a 5 minute walk away with a supermarket, a gelato store, and many restaurants. There is also a good pizza restaurant across the street. We have to estimate the value based on the TripAdvisor price because we don’t know how much the tour paid for our room. We were impressed with the facilities and with the service




"Really good rooms by TripAdvisor"

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.

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.

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 )




"The best hotel in Rome by TripAdvisor"

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 .




"Very nice hotel to stay by TripAdvisor"

Third time in Rome. This is by far the best hotel. Big and comfortable rooms, lovely courtyard , great terrace where to have breakfast, lovely and helpful staff. And the owner Ms. Anna ... such a lovely, charming and full of attention lady If you want to feel at home in Rome this is the place to stay Richard




" by Venere"

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 had a vey enjoyable stay here with Insight Tour by TripAdvisor"

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.




"What a lovely place by TripAdvisor"

Hi , I often travel for business and therefore I consider myself a very demanding customer. I was pleasently surprised by the standard , the cleanliness of the hotel. I know Rome pretty well and it is very difficult to find in the centre , where the hotel is located, such a quietness . The hotel has a beautiful Staff are very nice, always with a smile and make you feel at home. There is no doubt that from now on I will always ask my company to be hosted there




"Excellent Hotel, excellent location by TripAdvisor"

The Hotel was great! I was impressed by the size of my room. I thought for a second that mine was an executive room and I asked the guy at the reception. He told me that all rooms were more or less the same size. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Very nice and relaxing atmosphere. The afternoon was sunny and I spent few hours in the lovely garden. I would defiitely go there again.




"Quite Hotel by TripAdvisor"

I & a friend stayed in this Hotel for 3 nights in September following a Trafalgar tour . The hotel staff are extremely polite, & willing to help eg happily printed out our boarding passes. Free Wi Fi & available hotel computer a bonus .Rooms are clean, reasonably spacious for Rome , we had a ground floor room with access to the lovely courtyard .Breakfast served on the roof garden area was moer than adequate plus great eating area .Easy taxi ride into the centre of Rome { did not use station } Area surrounding Hotel run down , but this is not reflected in the Hotel . Magic litte cafe /bistro turn rt outside Hotel door walk round the corner & situated next to fruit shop .Asked if we could order food to take away because of feeling unwell from a heavy cold !! no problem anything on the menu can be taken away . One part of the order we were told would take 10mins to cook vegetable dish , returned in 10mins not ready waiter apologised ++ , & then brought out 2 glasses of champagne for us to drink whilst waiting !!! , bill came to 20 Euros for fresh beautiful food & two Italian beers , cannot ever imagine treatment like this in Australia ,would be lucky with an apology . ! Hotel happy for take away food to be eaten in the courtyard garden . Happily stay in this Hotel again .

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.




" by Venere"

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 cafés around. Only the breakfast is a little poor, but it is compensated by the other mentioned good qualitites.




"Great location, great staff by TripAdvisor"

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.




"Loved it, we will be staying here again by TripAdvisor"

Lovely hotel. Helpful staff. Excellent location. Good food. Recommend this hotel to anyone




"Excellent service and standards! by TripAdvisor"

Staff were very accommodating and friendly. The room was very large, bigger than I've had at other hotels and impeccably clean. The hotel is ideally located for sight seeing and only a stones throw from the station. I'll definitely be back when next in Rome! Thank you!




"Perfectly OK Hotel by TripAdvisor"

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.




" by Venere"

It was the best hotel, I've ever stayed in! Prices are excellent, romms are gorgeous, and the staff as well! I can tell You if You want to have some great time in Rome, just try this hotel!




"Enjoyed our stay by TripAdvisor"

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.




"Good hotel by TripAdvisor"

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.




" by GuestReview"

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.
