This is my 4th stay at Giolli Hotel and it is like a return to visit my Italian family. The staff, especially Carlo are welcoming and happy to make my visit all it can be. Located on Via Nazionale it is a walkable distance from the train station, and 7 minutes at most, by taxi. Rooms are clean, generous and some have larger bathrooms due to their location. Above the 4th floor are private apartments, so I request a 2nd floor to minimize possible noise from 'family time.'
Rooms are equipped with a desk, a free safe and there is stocked refrigerators charging reasonable prices for water, wine and snacks. Giolli is rated 3-star and its rates are very reasonable, especially for the city of Rome. Breakfasts include juices, hard-cooked eggs, fresh croissants, rolls, tarts, cheese and Italian cold cuts. There is a barista too, who will serve up your morning cappuccino or espresso.
The location of the Giolli couldn't be better to visit all of the historical sites Rome offers. From the front of the building you can see the Vittorio Emmanuel 'wedding cake' building and it is a short walk to it and all of Rome's historic sites. To visit the Trevi Fountain, so you can toss in your coins & return, you just cross the street (Via Milano) and walk through the tunnel, take a left and you're there.
Across from the hotel is the Exposition building which offers changing exhibitions, including free photographic exhibits, a cafe and great book and gift store. A taxi stand is directly across from the hotel and in the blocks nearby are several good trattorias and restaurants. Several buses run down Via Nazionale and with the bus signs that list all of the stops, you can't get lost unless you want to!
Flying back to the West Coast USA means a hideously early airport departure. But to let you know how thoughtful the staff is, a breakfast is set up for me to eat before my car arrives to take me home. Reading some of the reviews that mention some problems, I'd would like you to give the Giolli Hotel another visit and you'll find, as I did, that the staff are really warm and professional.
I am already looking forward to my next visit when again I'll stay at the Giolli Hotel.
