Fantastic Hotel, Fantastic Staff”

Excellent hotel, kind, helpful staff. Everything you need for a stay in Rome. I would stay at Smooth Hotel each and every time I come to Roma! The staff are kind and cheerful, happy to help you with a taxi, dinner reservation or just general information. The rooms were exceptionally clean with everything you need. If you find something to complain about here, you probably should not be traveling! It's the best place in Roma!

Great Hotel with phone perks”

Great hotel! Rooms are up to date modern decor, nice and clean. Folks working very helpful in giving you directions and knowledge abt their town. Great breakfasts. Even enjoyed a dinner there. Greatest thing is our room came with a phone to take with us for navigation and calling outside Rome. We were able to easily navigate around their metro and bus system and see so much of Rome because of this phone.

This is your hotel in Rome”

I booked this hotel based upon reviews only. It was amazing. The staff take care of you. The room is incredibly spacious and open. The coolest amenities- especially that they provide a smartphone to take with you around the city. Comes with navigation, recommendations, and allows you to book tours and tickets. Breakfast is included and has a pretty standard fare. I loved the entire experience. On the night before checkout, they helped me prep for an early flight, including booking a cab for the next morning and packing a box breakfast for us. Hotel is a few blocks from Termini and from Piazza Reppublica.

Rome 2019”

Pros 1. Request quiet floor. Hotel delivered. 2. Spacious room for 2 (couch was a plus) so useful. 3. Breakfast included, helpful for morning before tours. Coffee/Expresso machine great. 4. Pocket phone to use as wifi to travel around the city. Wish all hotels did this. Excellent. 5. Elevator for Max 4 (without luggage). 6. Safety box. 7. Comfy bed and decent size bathroom. 8. Staff was great and helpful. 9. Room cleaned as requested when needed. 10. AC unit very helpful for the heat. Cons 1. Not as close to Rome termini station. Solid 15 to 20min walk, longer if you get lost as a first time visitor. 2. Limited metros to travel at night and nearest metro to hotel is still 15min walk. 3. Limited toiletries (one type of soap/shampoo) so bring your own items. 4. Room service did not work as the line to the kitchen never got through. Wish there was a direct line to the kitchen to place room service meals. Especially after long days of walking.

Great value hotel with a good breakfast”

Stayed 2 nights in a cozy room (which was one of the largest cozy rooms they have) and thought the hotel was very nice. Cozy room is small but room had a large enough bed (some have doubles, some have almost king size). Only time we were there was to sleep and get ready for our day. Room and bathroom was modern and clean. Bathroom was small, only one person at a time. The hotel has a good breakfast included with eggs, pastries, yogurt, coffee, tea, and cappuccino. Overall it provided a good meal to start the day. Overall the hotel provides a great value and is about a 10-15 minute walk from Termini.

Hotel is at a very good location to me as it is within walkable distance from Rome Termini station but the area is less doggy than Rome Termini. For people who would like to stay nearer to Rome Termini station should choose Smooth Hotel Republica. Two hotels look the same from the outside so it maybe easy to mix them up. Staff is nice and we were so lucky to be upgraded to a bigger room for our stay. Breakfast is average but enough to start a good day. Staff at the front desk gave us good recommendation on how to plan our route in Rome for we are only staying for one day. We were very pleased.
