We arrived at Rome Termini station after a long train ride and walked the few blocks to our reserved hotel - Smooth Hotel Repubblica - shortly before the hotel check in time of 2pm. The manager told us that they were moving us to their sister property 500m away. I told her that we really wanted to stay close to the train station, as we were going to take the airport train the next day. She offered to have a bellman help us take our luggage to the other hotel, and pay for a taxi to the train station. We accepted.
Smooth Hotel Rome Termini is several blocks farther from the train station than Smooth Hotel Repubblica, so it's not as convenient for tourists. However, the staff is amazing, especially Claudia, who gave us tips on where to dine and how to take the bus. The rooms are well-appointed, with modern touches. They also smell REALLY good (I'm not sure where the scent comes from, but it's really pleasant). The beds are quite comfortable. The air conditioning works well. There is complimentary bottled water in the mini fridge. They offer guests a free welcome drink (sparkling wine) at their bar, and
the on-site restaurant serves a decent breakfast in the morning.
I really liked this hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting Rome for a few days.More
