“Quaint Hotel in a fantastic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

We have just come back from the Hotel Augustea having stayed Tuesday through to Friday. We could not believe the quality of hotel compared to a British 3 star.
It was spotlessly clean and we think it may have been previously redecorated in places as the flooring throughout seemed to be new and different to the pictures (tiles throughout reception/hallway and laminate in bedroom). The bathroom also seemed to have all new tiles and the shower was lovely and powerful... as well as hot! There was also a bidet in the bathroom. The hairdryer was a bit odd and looked a bit like a hoover stuck to the wall but it seemed to do the job :)
We were in room 53 and although there was traffic noise from outside this doesn't bother us as we are from London anyway and use to this! Clean towels and bedding were put in the room everyday. The furniture was a sage green in colour and very traditional with painted flowers which we felt added to the character of the hotel! All drawers and wardrobe doors worked and there was a mini fridge in the room as well which we used to keep the water cool.
It is true that breakfast was limited with white bread rolls, ham, cheese, selection of pastries, cornflakes, tea, coffee and juice. However, it was all fresh. Just would have been nice to see some fruit and yoghurt as well!
All in all, we had a lovely stay in this hotel and it is central to absolutely everything! We could reach the trevi fountain in 15 minutes and the colosseum in 25 :)
We would definitely stay here again if we were to visit rome!

Room Tip: Room 53 if you don't mind some traffic noise :)

We stayed at this hotel for the last leg of our Italian Honeymoon and we would never go back again. The room was dark and dingy and they had pushed two single beds together that were different heights! The bathroom smelt of sewage and the fixtures and fittings were cracked. The breakfast was very basic so we chose to eat out after the first morning. The only up side (apart from the beauty of Rome) was that when we complained we were moved to a different room which was slightly better making the stay bearable

Rome is absolutely spectacular, the hotel is situated in a great place as all of the attractions are no more than 30 mins walk away. We enjoyed our stay in Rome but were dissapointed with almost everything with Augustea. You don't get what you pay for - you get less. The rooms are pokey and breakfast is a cop out.

We weren't made aware that the hotel liked you to hand in your keys when you left and went out for the day until our 2nd day here. We handed in our key regretfully. Our personal items that were left in our bathroom including bags of dirty washing, toiletries and reciepts on surfaces had been thrown away, causing us inconvenience and added costs.

When this was addressed to them they did not do anything to help or even apologize just shrugged their shoulders.

We purchased expensive souvineers from the Vatican City which had 'gone missing'

You don't want to have to incur more costs because of their poor hospitality and poor cleaning staff.

I would go back to Rome but use another hotel, extremely dissapointed - they could have easily made our stay more enjoyable but chose not to.

Poor customer service
Mini bar very, very expensive
mould on the ceiling, shower doors dont close properly, had to clean the toilet and wash basin ourselves before using it as it was dirty.

I wouldn't trust leaving our passports in the room as anything can easily be taken and with the language being a barrier you will not get your possesions back, you will be worse off financially and your trip won't be stress free.

left a bitter taste in our mouths

The trevi fountain, vatican, Colusseum, Forum and Emanuelle Memorial were amazing.
Advise you go to Target restaurant which is round the corner, the food was pricey but delicious. Eat loads of ice cream no matter the season it's lovely!

Have fun!!!

Stayed here for a long weekend recently and thought the hotel was great. Arrived late on in the evening and the room was ready and waiting for us. Really quick check in, although the hotel didn't have any form on life inside getting to the room was easy enough with a small case. The road you are based on was great. There are shops, restaurants and bars so plenty of choice if you dont fancy walking far. The hotel is a 10/15 minute walk away from the fountain. If you come out and turn right to the gallery and turn right again through the tunnel the fountain is down the cobbled street on your left. We did a sightseeing tour and the stops were in great location to the hotel as it stop and the station a 2 min walk away. Breakfast at the hotel was simple, tea, coffee, waters and juice were provided along with bread rolls, cornflakes and a few cake bars, but did the job. There is a mcdonalds just outside the hotel should you want something more filling. We were lucky enough to have an ensuite in the room which some didn't have. I had emailed the hotel before i travelled and requested this so might be worth doing? The hotel was dated i wont lie, but i had a great time. Its location was spot on for its price and how much time do you spend in your room really? Also the hotel will hold suitcases for you if you have a late departure.

Room Tip: Email before and ask for a quiet room with an ensuite. Room 68 is a good choice.

A very basic hotel in the close versinity of Roma Termini (Main train station). The location is excellent for weekend trips to Rome as you are close to all kinds of transport systems and even can walk from the hotel to the main cultural attractions. Rooms look like from the 70's and could do with an upgrade, but you are not in Rome to stay in a hotel. Breakfast is a basic as it can get i Italy, but with a town full of restaurant on your doorstep...who cares. We paid 90 Euro per night and room which was a decend value compared to other hotel options in the area. I would take my wife for a romantic stay in Rome to this hotel, but I would always go back with friends to have a fun weekend. The receptionist was funny and always good for a joke.
