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
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.
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. 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.
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.
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
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.
My husband and I stayed in Rome for a couple of nights for our wedding anniversary - and what a gem, we discovered! The rooms were lovely, spacious and extremely comfortable. The staff were outstanding and couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating - they really made our stay special. We will definitely return.
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!
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.
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.
We stayed in this little hotel for three days prior to a 12 night Eastern Mediterranean Cruise. It was a lovely hotel in a quiet Rome neighborhood. Walking distance to Termini Station, and not a bad walk to historic sites in Central Historic District. Close to ancient Rome city wall. It had lovely rooms, very nice bathrooms. Many rooms overlook central court, and have balconies with tables and chairs. There is free internet service and a computer to use in a nice large parlor/sitting room. Staff was very nice. Breakfast was served each morning in a very nice dining room, and was excellent. Our stay here was pleasant and comfortable, we'll choose to stay there again, and will tell others about it. We ate in a very nice restaurant directly across the street, the food and service was excellent. The Price of the Hotel was also quite reasonable at 151.00 euros a night double occupancy.
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 .
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!
Lovely hotel. Helpful staff. Excellent location. Good food. Recommend this hotel to anyone
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.
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
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 hotel, well located near to the main University, the main railway station and to a large nightlife/retaurants area like San Lorenzo but in a quiet "corner". Difficult to find a parking in the street. Nice, clean, a good place to stay. Breakfast is a little bit poor expecially for foreigners habits; coffee is very bad...
Customer service was excellent. Rooms were very clean, and housekeeping kept my room spotless! It felt like home away from home!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
