Reviewed 17 February 2012

Me and my sis stayed here (booked through Citalia) and found the hotel a great bargain. We got the train, late at night from the airport and came out at the wrong end on the station and admittedly we were a bit concerned as it looked a little rough-but if we had come out the main entrance and headed straight for the hotel-the area is absolutely fine. It's in walking distance of the Forum, Colloseum, all the major attractions. There's lot of great restaurants, cafe's nearby. The staff are friendly, the breakfast has enough of a range to keep you going for the day. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't that kind of hotel-but it's a good hotel, the rooms are good sizes with spotlessly clean facilities. We loved it. Rome is fantastic and just get some comfy shoes on and walk it-if you can. On foot, you can see just about everything but if not there's plenty of buses and the underground. We walked everywhere. I would highly recommend, Pallatine Hill, the Forum, Colloseum and see Circus Maximus-where everyone walks there dogs! Buy a ticket from the Forum-and get into the Collosseum and Pallatine Hill as well-much cheaper than paying seperately and also if the Collosseum is busy you get through the line quicker. My least favourite was the Vatican-I know its a hot spot but I found the place busy and would have rather spent the day elsewhere. Obviously if you are religious it's a must see. The Pantheon is so intersting as is the area around, filled with shops and busy cafe's. If you have time, catch the train down to modern Pompei town and visit the ancient city-a spectacular must see! Oh and if you come in November where warm clothing!!!!

We have jsut returned from a fantastic stay in Rome; a birthday present from my husband. We spent 3 days in Rome, staying at the Hotel San Remo. I did read the reviews however i remained open minded as people do have differing expectations of 3* hotels.
I am pleased I did! The hotel was in an absolutely fantastic location for sightseeing everything in Rome. We walked everywhere and unless you have an aversion to walking, everthing is within walking distance; no need for the bus or metro. We went with our 4 year old daughter and she had no probelms either.
On entering the hotel we were greeted by friendly staff and were checked in quickly. A junior member of staff helped us take our luggage to our room using the lift.
Our room was basic but on a par with the many 3 star hotels we have stayed in elsewhere in the world. It was large, had plenty of storage space and the beds were comfortable and clean. The room had individually controlled heating and a TV and fridge, which was handy.
The bathroom was beautifully clean and well stocked with plenty of fresh towels. Yes the water pressure wasn't fantastic and a little luke-warm in the mornings but it was fine for washing my, rather long, hair!
Breakfast was a feast of everything continental and the staff nothing but kind and helpful- they wanted you to have a good breakfast!
The location was considerably quiet, for the world's noisiest city!
This was a perfect short stay and I could not fault the staff, the room or the hospitaility we received in the hotel San Remo, it was fantastic! I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

Although this hotel was in an excellent location for our explorations of Rome, the hotel is in dire need of a renovation and especially a coat of paint. The room furnishings were fairly new but very Spartan. The bathtub and facets need replacing. There were scuff marks on the wall in our room that were not cleaned the whole time we were there and we ran out of hot water in the morning. Breakfast was good and the front desk very helpful but we would not stay there again.

First impressions were that it wasnt too bad but by day 3 I couldn`t wait to leave and from what I saw of other 3 star hotels in the area the San Remo definately seemed to lag behind. Sore points included the cockroaches scampering for cover in our room, the strange smell in our room, the lack of any hot water, the air con didnt work, the lift felt like a death trap ready to plunge to the bottom at any moment. Also the hotel "lounge" feels more like a hospital waiting room- you wont want to spend any time there. We went to the Great Western around the corner and used their sofas and bar! Saw another couples room and it definately seemed better than ours but no hot water for them. I suppose if all you want is a bed for the night close to the Termini then this will fit the bill. But with so many other much nicer hotels close by I cant see why anyone would chose here. Thought the accomodation tax that had to be paid in cash before check out was a bit of an insult but guess thats Rome for you.

Room Tip: Avoid 5th floor!

2nd Visit still a good experience, convenient for all transport and within walking distance of some sites. Very clean, friendly staff. Breakfast good and better than last stay. Only downside bathrooms clean but dated and need upgrading, water not hot enough unless you pick your time. Would certainly re\commend as value for money and would stay again.

Room Tip: Room at back dingy views but quiet
