                  decent value for money hotelThe staff capable to solve difficult situations and also friendly. The breakfast doesn't offer much variety but it's adequate to give you the energy you need to start your day, especially if you have it in the garden. The ladies for the cleaning do their best to have a neat place to stay. The building had an air of old grandeur. The rooms are of a good size and the fact that they have high ceilings makes them spacious. The location is perfect, very close to termini station (which means you are in the heart of everything) without the hustle and bustle of it and besides close to two other metro stations and also bus stations .It's situated in an quiet neighborhood close to most historic sites ( even by walking), restaurants and supermarkets. I'd rather more variety of toiletries in the bathroom. There is a mini bar in the room but there isn't a price catalogue.

                  Elegant hotel near Termini stationThe Viminale is a lovely, period hotel situated 10 minutes from the main rail/metro station at Termini and close to the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore. The hotel is in a good area and there are several restaurants nearby. The rooms are large and comfortable and there is a good breakfast. Staff are helpful and facilities are adequate, although the Wi-Fi speed was slow. There was some traffic noise early in the morning so those preferring quiet should ask for a room facing the back.

                  Feels like a jail facility. Location is great, place is clean and AC works in crazy hot Rome. Facility is way outdated, borderline museum. No electronic cardkey for room, so you must surrender your key when you leave, visitors can't go in your room and staff rude like jail guards. Do not recommend for single people. Place and staff feel like right out of an old movie. Probably good for families on a budget.

                  Good for the price, great location, but not the best.I stayed at this hotel for (4) nights while traveling solo in Italy. I had a single room which was VERY small. Perfect for only one person. The hotel itself is fairly old, not a lot of modern amenities, they even used standard keys for each room instead of hotel key cards. First few nights were fine, but my last two nights I had neighbors in the room next to me and I could hear EVERYTHING. It was very annoying and the walls were thin. I went to tell the desk clerk who was pretty rude about the situation and said they could not move me to another room since the hotel was booked. I would recommend it for the price and location only not the hotel or amenities. Centrally located on a cute street near a lot, I could walk to all major attractions within 30 minutes and there was plenty of food around as well.

                  Arriving in rome i already booked a home stay but I had difficult time finding it so i decided to make a last minute booking in this hotel, my sister who stays in rome visited me but they didn’t allowed her to go upstairs.. some staff are not that nice, some are good. Location wise its good , you can walk going to historical landmarks, near to convenient stores and restaurants, value for money since u don’t spend much for transportation.

                  Beautiful backyard garden ”

                  It's fantastic to enjoy your breakfast in the backyard garden. The bathroom is large and clean. And the location is quite tranquil in the city centre. But I think the beddings are quite old and not that clean.

                  I'm really grateful for the best ever vacation in Rome and would like to say THANK YOU for this:) To be more exact: perfect location, quiet, cute and clean room, friendly staff. Will definitely return.

                  Perfect stay ”

                  I stayed at Hotel Viminale for a total of 3 nights in a single room. Having booked only hours before I was due to check in (and paying only $59 AUD for such a central hotel which also included breakfast) I did not have high expectations for the room. The room was perfect! Very simple but I had everything I needed. My room was on the top floor with a beautiful view of the city, and right next to the roof top terrace which is perfect to sit out on. Staff were not overly friendly but were not rude either. You will have to find your own room and get your bags there yourself but I did not consider this to be an issue. I was also given a map of the city upon check in. Certainly I'm not entirely sure that this is a 4 star hotel, but I definitely got good value for my money. I would certainly recommend this hotel to others (if you can book the room for a reasonable enough price)

                  Booked Viminale Hotel, but stayed at Hotel Torino, the location was the only good thing

                  Booked Viminale Hotel, but stayed at Hotel Torino......The first room we were given at Hotel Torino, the bed was broken. The guy at the front desk asked me if I could sleep in the bed. I repeated to him slowly that the bed was broken. I was upset because it was like he wanted to know if the bed was too broke to sleep on. Finally after a few minutes we were given keys to another room to check. That room seemed fine so we moved everything to that room. Well hours later when we tried to take our showers, we found out there was NO hot water. We were tired and waited to report the problem until the morning. The hot water in the sink took several minutes to get warm. We were told that it was because we were on the top and took time for the water to heat up. We were told to turn the hot water on and wait 10 minutes. To me, this is unacceptable and the problem should be resolved. The same food was offered for breakfast every morning, and needs improvement. I would NEVER stay at Hotl Torino, or book Viminale Hotel!

                  price, location, service

                  The hotel is perfect if you are interested in value for money and enjoying Rome, rather than your hotel. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the hotel, it was very clean, well kept, the breakfast was good, staff were helpful/polite/friendly - it's just not for those who want luxury. Location was great, very close to the Termini train station for connections to both airports, and close to the Metro too.

                  Location, rooms, atmosphere

                  This was our third time in this hotel and will be definitely our choise when we next time visit in Rome. Neighbourhood is nice and quiet and there are very good restaurant near by (about 50m from the hotel), highly recommended. You can easily reach many attractions by walk (e.g Colosseum). Staff in helpful and speaks English. Rooms are nice, a little bit old fashion, but clean and comfortable.

                  Overall good enough, but I expected more for a 4 star hotel. The room (single) was tiny. Bathroom ok, but small. Space seems to be a problem in almost every hotel in Rome. Fantastic location, walking distance to almost all Rome attractions.

                  Hotel is nice and quaint. Helpful reception staff. Nice patio area that looks out to parts of Rome. However, it is some distance away from the metro station. Avoid getting a room on the top floor as the floor is not served by an elevator.

The service it's ok but can be improoved, i also suggest to use the up floor terrace as roof wiev bar. The price it's ok but should not be moor expensive advice will not be convenient compare others hotels.
