Worth the price concierge that checked us in was wonderful and she was very informative of surrounding attractions. The other two gentlemen we dealt with not so much. All in all a good stay and recommended.
I choose this hotel because it is a bit out of the busy central Rome. Its in a quiet residential area. I walk quite slowly so 15mins walk to the nearest Metro via a short cut, a few minutes from the nearest bus stop which I used frequently rather than Metro. Routes 16 and 62 on via Venti Settembre are more than enough to cover many of the attractions. The breakfast is continental; with ham, boiled eggs etc which is good. Beside a coffee bar, there is no lunch nor dinner service beyond breakfast. This is not a problem as there are so many restaurants near by for all tastes and budget. The rooms are dated if you are used to the latest Novotel modern style. Rather dark (not bright) overall. That aside, everything else is positive, great staff, comfy beds and bathroom. Free wi-fi; not fast but sufficient. If you are the type that like to stay in a Disney hotel so that you are at the heart of the attraction, then may be not for you. If you want some peace and quiet; a breather from the buzzing Rome central, this is a hotel for you. Cantino Cantarini on the same square offers excellent home made Italian food at reasonable price. Bus tickets/pass available five mins walk from hotel at news agents on via boncompagni cross via piemonte. Dont miss out on real ice cream a couple of minutes walk from the hotel, I Caruso on via Collina

We stayed at Hotel Fiume for 5 nights. We were first placed in a handicapped room, which is only worth mentioning because it had a special flat shower without a lip or tub of any kind. This is how we first discovered the plumbing issues. The sink and shower both drained extremely slowly, which in combination with the handicapped shower, led to immediate flooding of our bathroom.
The hotel staff was kind enough to move us to another room the next day, which was manageable due to a lip in the shower - but draining was still an issue. We found ourselves stopping the shower every 30 seconds or so to give the water time to drain, which was a definite nuisance.
We had a fabulous stay, reception staff very helpful. Mirabelle restaurant amazing views and amazing food. We used the spa in their sister hotel across the park which was excellent. Good location for exploring city.
From the moment we arrived we had excellent service.We were allocated our room quickly and our bags were carried up by the porter.Our room was spacious and well furnished and comfortable.The hotel has a lovely roof top terrace and small restraunt.The view from here was beautiful.Breakfast was taken in a quirky downstairs basement and was very nice Good selection of food and plenty of choice.This hotel is in a good location for all sight seeing.
Made famous by 'La Dolce Vita' film in 1960, the Via Veneto is going through a glamorous renaissance. Bars, restaurants, chic hotels and boutiques all vie for attention in the street which coined the expression 'paparazzo' – the surname of the photojournalist in the film. Nearby, the Spanish Steps are the place for lovers' trysts, shopping, and honing the Italian art of 'dolce far niente' – idling and people-watching.
