Best Western Globus Hotel
Ranked #232 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 23 September 2017 via mobile

Let’s start with the pluses
1. Next to Sapienza University. If this is your destination and reason for being in Rome, good for you.
2. Excellent reception desk. Good for checking in, checking out, and everything in between (e,g, maps, directions, etc.).
3. Nice room size. For any North American who complains about European mini room sizes, this one has good sized rooms. At least mine was (411, fourth floor).
4. Very nice breakfast buffet. Great start to the day.
5. Free tea, coffee, cold water, croissants during the day in the lobby.
The lesser qualities
1. Shabby neighborhood. Most buildings look slum-like. Dirty streets.
2. Dead in the evening. Once classes are over, everything closes down.
3. Breakfast could do with adding fresh vegetables.
4. Very slow elevators.
Overall, a nice surprise

We stayed at the Globus during our recent visit to Rome. The rooms are clean, comfortable and they offer a great breakfast buffet. Awesome coffee. The subway station was about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel which was great. Not many places to eat near the hotel so have your dinner before you get there. Only issue was the wifi in our room was not good so we would have to go in the hall or down to the lobby to get wifi. Staff was helpful and responsive when called.

One room was big enough to comfortably fit 5 people inside, and the staff were very good in providing information and cleaning the room thoroughly each day. Hotel is only 5 mins away from Policlinico station and a few stops from Termini. Hotel Wi-Fi connection however was weak at best hence the lost star. Overall a good place to stay if you plan to spend most the day out in Rome.

This is a very out-dated hotel. The rooms are in need of refurbishment. However, it is very near the main Rome university, and is probably priced and maintained for the student/visiting academic crowd. The bed was comfortable, the location quiet, and very near the Sapienza university. The train station, Tiburtina, is not far, and you can reach the airport directly. It is also quite close to the main Rome train station which will get you to most places in Italy as well as an express train to the airport. Best thing: a really good pizza take-away almost across the street: Pizza dai Cinque. Worst thing: really bad bathroom - needs complete overhaul. Staff really lovely and very helpful. If you're going to be seeing the sights in Rome all day, or attending a conference in the university, this is a good choice. Be careful in the bathroom. I found the tub very slippery.
