    Unlike many hotels in Europe, the hotel is spacious and comfortable. Breakfast offered a good variety of food when there for a couple of days.

    The hotel is a good choice to Rome. It is next to Termini and you can use the red bus easily. The bed was good and the street is quiet enough.

    The staff was a little indiferent and show no cordiality. This is not applicable to all the staff, there was some respectfull people too. In the room you find a WIFI ZONE advise but it was not available in the room and not availabe in the reception too. The room floor was a little poor.

    We booked double room, but they gave us the bigger room which had been triple room. So the space and the bathroom is very big for us. I love the couch because it's very soft and comfortable. It's execellent for us to enjoy taking a shower even a bath and then lying on the couch after walking whole the day in Rome. The breakfast is diverse and most of foods are good, but some of them are too salty or sweet for Taiwanese. Location is good in quiet area and the staff are friendly!! Good to be recommended!!

    The air conditioner worked well. The bedquilt are not thick so we felt a little cold even though we set the highest temperature.

    More than you can imagine for this small money!Very, very kind staff,so helpful ..The breakfast is so good,everything is so fresh,many opportunities what you can choose.Near to Termini station,if you want to see every famous,nice place in Rome,this is the best choice.We loved this hotel,and it's sure,next time we will stay here again in Rome!

    Good location, very good breakfast, comfortable and not very small rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Russian orthodox church is in 1 minuets of warlking (about 50-100 m.) from the hotel, so the staying at the hotel is comfortable also for Russian church-travellers (поломники).

  • Couple
    8.2

    Location is great to visit the town and is so close to Termini (and to underground station) that also business travellers should choose it for a few days staying.

    The entrance has a stair, which is difficult to climb with luggage.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    This was a great value hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is probably inexpensive versus its true worth because it is a little far away from the sights, meaning it is 4 blocks the "wrong" direction from the Termini train station. Who cares?...Great price for a really nice place to stay and good restaurants right around the corner.

    the locaton was nice, 2 mins to a bus stop, 4 mins to metro, 10 mins walk to the termini station. stuff was freindly and helpful , the breakfast was very nice and various, i didnt expect it to be like this

    the noise from the street, there is a bar close to the hotel and they shout and speak loudly after midnight which disturbed me, the house keeping keeps shutting the doors strongly.at morning!

    I researched Rome hotels a lot before booking this one. With a 15yr old son and the days to be spent trekking around Rome we wanted a breakfast that was at least tolerable. Italian hotel breakfasts are not brilliant and we felt that a good start to the day would be a bonus. The breakfast here far surpassed other breakfasts we have had. The hotel was within easy reach of the centre, but well out of the noisy area. We walked easily from the bus and train terminal with luggage as well as every morning and evening after a day touring. The hotel rate was very reasonable. We ate at the nearer restaurant the first night and the next three nights at PretorianTaverna round the corner which had the best food we have tasted for quite a while.

    Breakfast was good for an Italian hotel, but a bit more fresh fruit would have been nice. Why is it that Italian hotels cannot serve a decent cup of coffeee for breakfast? The hotel is really only just for Bed and Breakfast. If you want other facilities go somewhere else. There is a small bar and sitting area, but they are not areas you would want to spend time in

    Everything was great, near Rome Termini(metro,train and bus), near restaurantes, great breakfast, great roomm there is nothing bad to point.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    I really liked the breakfastand the breakfast room, but that seems to be all that I liked there.

    The hotel is located near the metro station and a supermarket but in a busy and noisy place, no view, no air. Restaurants with live music won't let you relax at night. The shower was awful - designed for a 2-metres-tall person and terribly inconvenient. No railings or hooks for towels and clothes, no glasses. The walls seemed to be made of paper, the lift was very small. The carpet on the stairs must have been cleaned last century. And one more thing - I didn't like that the maid took out my night things (a nightie, ear plugs...) from the bed and put them on the bedspread.

  • Couple

    This hotel is in the perfect location to discover the city with both metro lines within 10 minutes walk. It is also close to Termini station with access to the airport and open-top tour buses. There are restaurants in the same block so you do not have to go far for your evening meal unless you want to. The breakfast at Hotel San Marco really exceeded our expectations, we could not have asked for more.

    The air-conditioning seemed to be over-loaded so our room was never really cool, but it was bearable.

  • Older travelers

    Size of the room was surprisingly large for Italy

    Carpet in stairwell needs to be replaced.

  • Single

    Horrible hotel, nothing good about it. If the photos matched the room I might have felt differently.

    This is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. Compared to another place in Rome that I had stayed at earlier in my trip, I'd say this is about 10% as good for the same price. The room was horrible and gross, with a box of tissues mounted on the wall above the bed. My room didn't resemble those in the pictures at all. This is the equivelent of a $40 a night Motel. Stay away.
