personalised servicePosted 9-Jun-2013 on Hotels.com
when first arrived, we weren't convinced that the taxi took us to the right place. The main entrance is through a door of the building where a parade of shops are in between graffitti walls. However once gone in the the whole atmosphere changed on seeing the welcoming receptionist/owner. A family owned hotel and clean and comfortable throughout. centrally located for most attraction and next to a metro station. We are a family with young children It's an old fashioned b&b but has got all modern facilitieswe including w--fi. thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Clean, quiet, and economicalPosted 23-May-2013
Hotel Maikol was fine for our needs. We wanted an economical hotel close to the train station. It was very clean and the owner was lovely. She recommended a great restaurant for dinner. The breakfast served in the room is included and was very fresh and nicely presented. As others have noted, it is hard to find unless you know to look for the MAS Store sign, but we knew that and found it with little trouble. It is not a big fancy hotel. We had to ring the door bell when we arrived upstairs (it is on 2nd floor), but the owner answered promptly. The neighborhood has vendors on the street, but we had no issues with security. If you want a big room in an upscale location, this is not it. If you want a clean, quiet room walking distance to the Termini Train station, and at modest cost, this is for you.

A lovely hotel very close to the ColosseumPosted 12-May-2013
An excellent hotel - close to the Metro and walking distance to the Colosseum Opposite a beautiful park. Rooms are spacious and the staff are very helpful. Continental breakfast is provided. Becky made our stay in Rome very special - she gave us excellent information that saved us money. The hotel is walking distance to many interesting and historical sites or just get a daily Metro ticket as all the 'important' sites are easy to reach on the Metro. Situated in a very pleasant part of Rome - nice walks. We will not hesitate to stay here again when in Rome.

Good, clean, basic hotelPosted 29-Apr-2013
The Hotel Maikol is difficult to find but well worth the search. Be sure to do your research as to location before you go! Once you are buzzed in, Betty, the owner, is more than helpful. We arrived early in the morning and were able to leave our luggage while we explored. It is a great, basic spot to rest for the night and continental breakfast, in your room, is a morning treat. We walked, with luggage, from Termini station but could easily have taken the Metro (one stop) to the corner by the hotel.

Friendly, quiet, good valuePosted 30-Jan-2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed at Maikol for two nights, and the manager was extremely friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ample and delicious, served in the room. I would ask for a room facing the courtyard , since my street side room was a little noisy. The location near the Roma Termini station was perfect for me, and right near a subway stop and many bus lines. Finding the hotel was tricky as the only sign outside was on the bell, but that is not unusual in Rome, I gather.

Disappointing staffPosted 20-Oct-2012
I chose this hotel because it recently won an award on TripAdvisor. The hotel is a little difficult to find, but not a far walk from the train station. It isnt in the best area, but most people dont travel to Rome to hang around their hotel...The hotel itself was in a bsuiling with other apartments and you had to climb some stairs to and from the elevator with your luggage. The room was okay. The breakfast was some pastries and coffee and juice. The room was clean but definitely nothing fancy. The thing that bothered me the most about the hotel was that the lady at the front desk made us pay up the night before we left. Then she brought us our breakfast for the next day that night. She said she would call a taxi for us the next morning since our flight left very early and we didnt want to trek the ten or fifteen minutes to the train station with our luggage that early in the morning. However, the next morning, she was nowhere to be found as was our taxi. We ran the bill, called, and waited and then decided we had no choice but to walk. So we made a mad dash to the train station with our bags in tow. It was very disappointing. Luckily we made the train. I guess since we had already paid the bill in full there was no incentive for her to assist us.

Pros: Service, warmth of staff. Comfort, quiet, location, a/c
Cons: Wifi was weak
Location: Perfect, right by Termini (with shuttles & trains from the airport), walking distance to colleseum, shopping areas. Very near metro to other sights.
Really, really great place to stay on a budget. Staff were very friendly and helpful, took care of any issues or requests we had right away. Room was comfortable, A/c was nice and cool, and heavy shutters blocked out the noise from the busy nearby street. The only complaint I would have was that the wifi signal was so weak in our room that it was almost unuseable. But for the price, service, comfort and location, I would definatwly recommend Maikol to anyone going to Rome.

Clean, good location, a bit tricky to findPosted 25-Sep-2012
Great B&B, location is very central, close to the train station & metro. Breakfast was ok, typical B&B breakfast delivered to your room. They have free wi-fi and it's fast enough. The room is clean, the air con however doesn't seem to work properly at times. It wasn't a big problem as we travelled in autumn. Other than that, it's a really nice B&B. Tips - the hotel is located inside an apartment building, so don't look for hotel sign. Instead, look for a big wooden door with the street number written on the top right corner & buzz the intercom.
