the hotel rooms here are quite large by european standards. the bathroom was also large and well appointed. overall, a very good hotel with a decent breakfast buffet. only downside is the location. it's on the southeast side of the termini (train station) so it's about a 10 minute walk to get there. just ask the front desk about the 492 bus because that will drop you off less than a block from the hotel all the way to the vatican.
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.
Hotel very clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful. Good selection of food.
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.
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
Customer service was excellent. Rooms were very clean, and housekeeping kept my room spotless! It felt like home away from home!
My wife and I had a wonderful experience staying with you at Hotel Ateneo Garden Palace. In fact, we stayed twice: at the beginning of our vacation in Italy and for the last two days of our visit, before returning to the USA. This was our first trip to Italy, and you helped make it one we will never forget. The room was just great, very roomy and comfortable. The staff at reception were unfailingly pleasant, helpful, and very efficient. The breakfasts were excellent, especially the cappuccini! Overall, we are very grateful for everything. Thank you so much! We hope to see you again one day.
Hotel is very charming and welcoming. Location is fantastic for S Lorenzo nightlife and Stazione Termini. Very quiet and peaceful a real gem in such a chaotic and noisy city. Rooms were private and clean. Highly recommended.
Very nice stay, next to S.Lorenzo quarter. Practical because near to Termini train station and. A bit far from center.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
I stayed here for business so did not spend too long enjoying the garden or the lounge but it all looked very comfortable and attractive. the room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. I would come back on a weekend break if I had the chance. The restaurants around the hotel are very authentic and reasonably priced.
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 )
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.
I seem to collect quiet hotels and this is one - its fundamental to know that after a hard day touristing or conferencing then you'll get a good nights sleep. This hotel is close to the station - 10 minute walk - and was perfect for the Conference I had to attend last week. Price 130 euros for a queen size bed.Found staff were alert and quick to please - not always easy to find in Italy I must say. Internal garden looked very pleasant for a drink, chat or email session. I was only there briefly but the WIFI worked fine and the breakfast room is a cheery glassed area on the 4th floor - not much of a view - it looks over private flats and houses. There were a couple of homeless in the park out the front but really harmless. For tourism you will need to use public transport to get to sites
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).
Actually everything was fine.We have been picked up at the Fiumicino and dropped to the property (transfer has been ordered in advance) There we were already awaited by night service and have been taken to our room. The standard room looks a little bit small but it has an entrance to the garden (at least at the ground floor). IMHO a good price/quality relationship. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
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. This was ok. I took a lot of buses. The TV only offered News in English. There was WiFi, but worked only 50% of the time.
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.
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.
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.
