Roman pearl for a traveller”

I really enjoyed my stay at Genio Hotel. It is located within a walk distance to the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, and all other main 'must see' locations in Rome. The room is clean and tidy, has an air-conditioner with a timer (super useful in summer), and the bathroom is big and bright. However, it all goes into the shadow of the main advantage of that hotel – the roof-top terrace! That one is indeed a pearl for such location and price. You can enjoy your breakfast or glass of wine there, and that was amazing! I highly recommend Genio Hotel and will stay there next time!

Fabulous location fabulous staff”

Pros: location was fantastic for getting to the pantheon, piazza navonna and other major attractions. Staff at the Genio went out of their way to be helpful in giving directions, making suggestions for places to visit. They would also recommend the best way to travel to places including getting back to the airport and how much it should cost. Cons :Hotel is old fashioned and would benefit from soundproofing but pros outweighed the cons.

The only thing about the facilities is that my partner has a bad back and the elevator was out of service for our whole stay. The rooms on the street may have been noisier but our room was small. The ones facing the street were more spacious. They also had coffee and tea making facilites whilst our room didn’t.

Noisy room and poorly educated staff”

The location is supreme but there was no ”cooked” breakfast (everything was bought from supermarket) and the room was very noisy until midnight. Nobody will think it has a value of 4 stars. I was truely disappointed by a stupid receptionist of the hotel. All of the staff are kind and helpful but except a receptionist around 35 years old and named ”Gabrielo”. After I knew the hotel has ”wheelchair OK” sign in Agoda, I booked a room and notified I am on wheelchair. However, when visiting, Gabriele got angry when looking me and shouted ”Why annoying disabled comes to my hotel!! There is no room for disabled!!”, thought they registered ”wheelchair OK” sign in Agoda. Gabriele was all time very unsutisfied and stupid. I will never stay in this hotel and hope the stupid man be fired soon. La posizione è suprema ma non c'era la colazione "cotta" (tutto è stato acquistato dal supermercato) e la stanza era molto rumorosa fino a mezzanotte. Nessuno penserà che abbia un valore di 4 stelle.

Genio fits to all kind of travellerss, nice hotel with good location.

hotel genio was really nice and the location is really good. my single room was spacy enough (not that normal in rome) and clean. the reception stuff was really great and helpful! rooms probably dont have that much "view" and therefor the roof teracce was great to have. you can enjoy a good and beautiful view over the city where you can see the vatican coupols and much more far away. piazza navona is in the next block, a short walk to castello sant angelo, shopping in via del corso, a bus 64 to vaticano and much much more.

Rome in spring”

Location with many sights in close proximity.
Crammed dining room.

The Genio Hotel in ideally located next to Piazza Navona and only a short stroll away from the Vatican, Pantheon, Fontana di Trevi and many other sights. The neighbourhood feels safe. The staff is friendly and one of the big advantages the hotel has is the roof terrace on the sixth floor. It offers a 360 degree view of Rome and is particularly nice on a sunny evening.

Quaint Boutique Hotel, centrally located in Rome”

Location; Penthouse terrace for included breakfast, with wonderful views.

This is a 3 star at best, but you can't beat the location!! Centrally located, and very close to Piazza Navona. Although there is not a restaurant in the hotel,there are many around the hotel. The hotel has character,and personality. Has daily cleaning staff, that do their job well. The breakfast is a typical European style,and satisfactory with lots to choose from. But if you want bacon and eggs..go elsewhere. This roof top terrace is also accessable through out the day, to take in the view, have a sip of wine (byob) or just rest. There is free wi-fi to guests..and a computer area in the sitting room area of the lobby. Our room was at the back vs the street, and although there is no view, there was no noise. And that is a plus. We had no problems with the hotel, and would go back again.

Fine stay in average hotel”

Location, friendly staff, quiet room

The hotel is located just off Piazza Navona and near main attractions. You can walk from the hotel to the main places of interest en nearby shopping Streets. You really have to like Rome, or get to like it. The hotel is an average Roman hotel. Nothing special and sort of rundown. Not really value for money, but that's hard to get everywhere in Rome. The room was quiet, but hardly had a view. The room was warm and could nog be cooled. Old furniture but sufficient. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The goo thing about the hotel is the breakfast room, located on the topfloor with great views if mediëval Rome. For a businss trip, not a bad option, compared to most B&B locations in the near area of this hotel, unless you prefer guesthouses (with less service)

The Genio hotel is very centrally located, central Rome within walking distance. The rooms had no view at all, but the breakfast was on a rooftop with great views over the city. The breakfast buffet itself was nothing special, poor for a 4 star hotel and the staff not very friendly. The room was good, except it was dark and no view. The bathroom was large and looked new and clean. Comfortable bed. Good hotel for overnight stay close to many attractions, but nothing more.

The aircon was not working and was not fixable, they had to move to another one. Location of the hotel is only 2 mins walk to Piazza Navona, cafes/restaurants are just right next to and across from the hotel. In my opinion it's not up to their 4 star standard.
