Good location within a mile of most attractions! ”

Friendly staff, free wi fi, free breakfast, clean rooms, Close to termini station

Hotel Rex overall was a pleasant stay. It is not a high end luxury hotel, but it does have great customer service and the rooms are spacious and clean. TV in room has some english channel options ( mainly news). I was very pleased with my room and breakfast was good. Location for me was good considering the great deal I got for the $$ I paid. They also have a community area with tv, computer, and video games for familes. I had a great time in Rome and I would 100% stay here again. Thank you Hotel Rex for making Rome feel like home :)

good price/quality with a very friendly staff”

very friendly front office staff, price and location were the 3 best parts of the hotel

i went to Rome on June 10th with my wife and friends and we stayed 3 nights in hotel Rex. all by all, a very decent hotel for the price we paid. Of course there is always more beautiful but in the city of Rome, that will be also much more expensive! the room are not the most modern (carpet could be replaced in our room) but may be not all rooms were like ours. we found for example the room of our friends nicer but still, our room was decent enough and we didn't need to complain about it to the staff.breakfast was ok, not the most beautiful buffet i ever seen, but there was enough choice and i never left the hotel hungry. location was good, near the central station and not far away from fonteina di trevi, and as we travelled by taxi often, the street was never too difficult to find for the taxi driver.Most important was the friendly staff, thanks to the ladies from the front office!

We loved this hotel!”

near the attraction, great staff, cozy hotel

We absolutely love this hotel! The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us tips where to go and how to get there. They even made a few phone calls to help us booked a reservation. They had a computer and a printer in the living room that you can use. The rooms were very big. The biggest room on our trip to Europe. The bathroom was very clean, but there were a little bit rusty on the faucet and shower, but it's not a big deal. The service in this hotel was amazing! You have to walk about 5-10 mins to get to the nearest metro station. But you can reach everywhere with the metro. There were a lot of restaurants around the hotel area. Definitely a great stay in Rome. Great hotel. Amazing services.

Excellent location; very attentive staff”

Location, Staff, Sufficient Breakfast

The room was spacious (we were upgraded to a suite). The rooms have Sky TV which offers English channels and movies. There is not much of a view from the rooms, but this didn’t matter as I was out of the hotel all day long drinking in the beautiful sights of Rome. The room and hotel were clean and quiet (ensuring a good night’s sleep). The air conditioning was powerful. There is only a shower and no bath-tub in the bathroom. My only complaint is that on the first night, after the other two had showered, the water was no longer hot enough for me. But that only happened the first night; the water was continuously hot for all the other days. The staff were incredible friendly and helpful and had a great attention to detail. The welcome provided was extremely special – the receptionist actually sat us down, provided us with detailed welcome packages with maps and useful information, and answered touristy questions that we had. Breakfast was decent. Although it was not a full spread, it was more than sufficient to keep me full until dinnertime. The only hot food provided was scrambled eggs and bacon (typical of continental European breakfast I believe). They also served cereals, variety of bread and rolls, yoghurt, fruits, pastries and cakes, juices and hot drinks (including a delicious hot chocolate). One could have boiled eggs, ham and cheese toast and some other breakfast items at an additional cost. But as I said, the spread was sufficient so I had no need to order separate breakfast items. The location was excellent, with Repubblica (4mins walk away) and Termini (5mins walk away) stations very close by. In addition, the main attractions are within walking distance e.g. Colosseum is 10mins away, Trevi Fountain is also about 10mins away and the Spanish Steps is less than 15mins away. There are lots of restaurants and delicious gelato places on the same road as the hotel and around the area. There is also a restaurant at the hotel, but I didn't dine there.

Lovely Hotel, Lovely Service”

Great location, fabulous staff, completely intentional about making your stay wonderful.

We loved our time at Hotel Rex!! We stayed here for the last two nights of our honeymoon in Italy and we couldn't have asked for a better way to end it. They took such good care of us. We woke up in the morning and under our door was the front page of our hometown newspaper. So thoughtful! They also had "Gluten Free" options at the breakfast bar which was wonderful after having struggled through an entire honeymoon of not really having much to eat for breakfast. And, when we had to check out at 4 AM to catch an early flight home, they had packed us each a breakfast to go. The rooms were lovely and clean and had cookies waiting for us when we arrived to say, "Welcome." I could go on...but suffice it to say, this hotel is definitely worth visiting. I hope that they continue to do well because they really have their act together.

The hotel location was great, very close to the train station Termini, it is not far to either underground or bus stations. It also within walking distance from most of the major tourist attractions. The room was well furnished, very comfortable and clean. Hotel staffs were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely would recommend it.

Despite the weatheh, the stay was excellent. We had rain, thunder and even power was out for a while, but everything was handled nicely. The hotel is not for business travelers, but for somebody who expects something different from ordinary international "resort type" of hotel. Rex really has a personality.

It was quite good, but with some nuances”

Clean room (cleaning every day), location, price (comparing to other 4* hotels)

We arrived @ 14.30 & our room was ready (it should be, of course, because check-in is from 14.00), so it was nice that we didn't have to wait. The room was good as for standard twin. Bathroom also was OK. Although, there was a nuance that often happens in hotels-if there's a bathtub, it's not secured enough from water on the floor when a person takes a shower. Bathroom amenities were supplemented only when we left a note to housemaid. The room was cleaned & bed linen was changed every day. The thing that surprised us not in a good way - there was a kettle & cups in the room, but tea & coffee was for extra fee. As some food during breakfast-e.g.if you would like fresh fruit, boiled egg or fresh juice, you have to pay for it. WI-Fi was good, fast & free. Also they have a computer (with printer) near the reception. There is a big room with big screen tv, chairs, where guest can spend their time. Although it's chilly there (we were there in March), cause this room is near the reception & entrance to the hotel. When leaving the hotel during the saty, guests have to leave the key (it's quite heavy, so it's OK. There is an elevator, so after walking all day it was very helpful (we lived on the 3rd floor). One more thing that surprised us was that we asked if there's a possibility to use an iron & receptionist told us that it's broken. Quite strange, we thought-couldn't they just buy a new iron? Later we didn't ask for it anymore, so we don't know if they fixed it or bought a new one. Strange thing was that they gave us wrong invoice 2 times. One time receptionist asked us to give it back and she changed to a good one. But when we were leaving the hotel for good, it turned out, that the invoice was still incorrect. We couldn't control the heating until 17.30, when it turned on automatically. Still, often there was error on the screen. There was a safe deposit box in the room, but once we put there some things & the battery died, so they changed the battery.

good location and nice rooms

The hotel is near the train stations and near to two metro stations, also the opera house of Rome. Our arrival was greeted with warm smiles and an orientation, places of interest, and how to get there. Our room was ok. The couch in the sitting room was so nice and good looking. But there's a hole in the middle of our bed on the cushion. I asked the reception girl to solve this problem. But the old guy who came just gave us a wood board and we could't communicate with him cause he spoke only Italian... All the other services was good and it's nice to have chosen this hotel.

Hotel Rex is a cute and chic hotel. Very nice and friendly staff. Free coffee, wi-fi and cable are offered in each room. Good breakfast selection. Very nice place to stay. However, the first day of our stay, the hotel had some issue of its hot water pipe. We didn't have hot water for the first 24 hours and that was brutal during the chilly autumn in Rome. Some other hotel guests said they had had the issue even before our arrival. They were very upset about it.

On the negative side, the room's décor and carpets were bit tired, the pillows were not comfortable and there was not much room to squeeze between the end of the beds and the TV unit. On the positive side, the hotel had a great location, a short walk to Termini and Repubblica Metro station. The shopping street Nazionale was also nearby as were lots of lovely restaurants with great food.

The hotel is near the train stations and near to two metro stations. Our arrival was greeted with warm smiles and an orientation of not just the hotel but the surrounding area, places of interest, and how to get there. The lady at the reception even gave us some tips on where to find good food and shopping which were not on the tourist guides (nice!) A nice little touch was the cookies/pastries and juices that were freely available while we waited for our rooms to be ready. Our room was ok. There was a small welcome card to welcome me and my wife as well as a little bag of cookies. The curtains were a little gaudy though (dark red!) Other then that, was adequete for a good rest to recharge after a hard day of shopping and sight seeing.
