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
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 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.
Very nice stay, next to S.Lorenzo quarter. Practical because near to Termini train station and. A bit far from center.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
Wow! What a place! We had been looking forward to the Rome part of our tour so much and this hotel did not let us down. Good location, friendly staff, big rooms and even a garden space to enjoy a drink in the evening. The breakfast is served on the top floor terrace, from where you have a great view. I would be more then happy to come back to this hotel again!
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.
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 .
Bautiful accommodation for me and my friends. Five minutes' walk from Termini station. Good rooms, polite staff and absolutely recommend.
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
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Easy access to bus lines and metro once you figure out routes. I had booked a triple for me, my wife, mother, and 5 year old twins thinking we could make it work. Hotel wasn't too thrilled about that when we first checked in as apparently that is not how it works in Rome, but hotel ultimately accomodated us and brought an extra bed to the room to make us more comfortable. Decent buffet breakfast. For a family on a budget I would recommend this hotel.

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).
