Nice staff, lovely breakfast ,uncomfortable bed .The nearest underground is Bologna but watch your belongings on the metro somebody cut right through my handbag and stole my ipod.It is only 4 euros for a day pass on the metro you can get off and on as many times as you want no good if you have walking difficulties though.

The hotel is indeed terrible. I hoped the previewous comments I had read at tripadvisor, saying that the hotel is actually okay, however it wasn't! It's far from being a 3-star quality; the staff didn't know English, the rooms are hostel-like, the WC was quite a disaster - there was not decent door, neither a place to put the basic...

Hotel Athena is close to the Bologna Metro Station (5 mnts walk from the hotel)....it is true value for money...the rooms were neat (I booked a quadruple room) for 4 nights and I would say the room was spacious and clean. Our sheets and towels were changed every day..our beds made by the time we returned from sight-seeing...the staff are...

I've been there for five days, the place is simply unacceptable, I've paid more than 100 Euros per night. I've found ants walking in the toillet, walls so thin that you can hear the whole building talking, it's a kind of splitted apartment where you'll find private apartments and offices(into the hotel...) I'm not against cheap hotels if you want...

My brother and I stayed in this hotel while I attended an academic meetings at the nearby University of Rome and stayed afterwards for a couple of days of sightseeing. The hotel is in the university district and some of the life on the adjoining streets reflects a vibrant university atmosphere: it is only about 15-20 minutes walk from the...

Ok so I picked this hotel after about 2 hours of looking online for something not to cheap and dingy, close to the city centre in Rome and not too expensive. On arrival to termini station we got a cab to the hotel, €8 so not too bad, however the hotel is only 6/7 minutes walk from the bologna blue...

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This gritty student neighbourhood immediately east of Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art galleries, curated mural projects by artists like Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San Lorenzo still retains its local vibe with weekend festivals and demonstrations, and is always a hub for Rome’s university student scene.
