Staff not very plesant at all. When checking out they did not even ask us if we had enjoyed our stay. Advertised Air Conditioning yet the time of year - April with 90 degree heat outside - did not warrant the AC being turned on throughout the building, not scheduled to come on until May. Made for a very unpleasant stay. Breakfast is included and that was very good. It will definitly set you up for a good day of sight seeing. Overall we would NOT return to this hotel again...the price & service do not warrant it at all.

Hotel staff are very friendly, helpful and always smiling and are available 24/7. There is a bar there and someone is always there to take orders. Breakfast selections are great, but get there early to avoid waiting for a table. However, you can request to have your breakfast brought to your room at no charge. Rooms are clean, beds are a bit lumpy but bearable. I was there in the summer so the a/c was great in the rooms. Location was great. Within walking distance to the Vatican Museum, and the Metro made it convenient to get around the whole city. Plenty of shops and restaurants in the vicinity and there is a small grocery store right next door. Overall, I had a great experience with this hotel and I would recommend it to others. The price is well worth all the little extras and conveniences you get with your stay.

I've never been (in more than 30 years travelling around the world, 15-20 times a year) in a room smaller than this. About the prize... well that was a night very busy in almost all the Rome hotels because the Champions League Final, but to cash 170 euros for this kind of individual room... I'm sorry for the word, but this is a robbery (the hotel did it, not Venere I know it).

A nice Best Western Hotel. We stayed in family room that could hold our family of 4. It was very small and was a constant battle for space to sit, put suitcases and maneuver. Perhaps a normal double room would not be so bad. The rooms were clean and the location was good. There were a few restaurants nearby and several shops.

The hotel was very pleasant and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was also very well located, close to the Vatican museums. The single room I had, however, was very cramped; you couldn't swing a cat in it. If the room had been bigger, I would have no grounds to fault it. Still a very nice hotel to stay in.

L'hôtel est moderne, confortable et très propre. Le personnel est très compétent et aimable. L'hotel est situé juste à côté du Vatican, ce qui est très pratique pour visiter le musée et la basilique mais implique une marche d'au moins 30 minutes pour accéder au centre de Rome. Notre chambre pour trois personnes, spacieuse et confortable, donnant sur une cour, était assez bruyante ( bruit à l'extérieur d'une aération ... bruits des conversations des voisins). Le petit déjeuner est excellent et très copieux.

Hotel has excellent location close to the Vatican and Metro in a good neighborhood. Rooms were clean and well furnished. We stayed two night, then went to Venice, and later returned for three more nights. The air conditioner in our first room was not able to keep the room as cool as we would have liked, while the air conditioning in the second room was fine. The first room was a corner room and had two large windows which probably contributed to the air conditioners struggle to keep the room cool. Otherwise, we were very pleased with the hotel.

Please correct and update information on the website. The train stop names have been changed. We stopped one stop early due to the website stating to get off at the Vaticano Musei. There is no such stop. It's been changed now. Also, there is internet IN THE ROOM at no charge. The website stated there was a small charge. This is a BIG PLUS FOR MANY TRAVELERS AND COULD MAKE THE DIFFERENCE IN CHOOSING YOUR HOTEL! Lastly, our family of FIVE stayed comfortably as there was a double bed, sofa sleeper PLUS a single chair that folded out to a comfortable bed. In Italy where prices are crazy for Americans, this was an affordable option AFTER reserving 2 rooms for my children. We all were able to stay very comfortable in one room

I recently stayed here with my mum, it was a very pleasant enjoyable stay. My only fault was when we were leaving the hotel ordered us a taxi and it was delayed by nearly 30minutes!

A hospedagem (minha e de minha familia) no BW Spring House foi uma das mais acertadas escolhas de nossas férias. O ponto alto é o profissionalismo, atenção e hospitalidade dos funcionários. Destaco também as confortáveis instalações dos quartos e o café da manhã. Este hotel conta ainda com alguns itens que fazem a diferença em relação a outros hoteis de seu nível, como exemplo, o coquetel de boas vindas, a possibilidade de escolha do travesseiro e a existência de carregador de malas. A localização é excelente, fica numa rua tranqüila, bem perto do Museu do Vaticano, Metrô, ponto de ônibus, restaurantes, lojas, etc. Vale muito a pena !

We had a fantastic stay at the Spring House. The staff could not do enough to help us and make our stay in Rome brilliant. I am a travel agent and never told any staff this and I was even more impressed that they were as friendly and helpful with everyone. The hotel is spotless and very close to the vatican and only 4 metro stops from the centre of rome. The metro station is 2 minutes away from the hotel too. I will definatley return to this hotel and recommend this to any customers wishing to visit Rome. I travelled with my husband, two young children, parents and brother and all I can say is that we had a wonderful time and stayed at an impeccable hotel. Cant wait to return!!!!

We were very impressed with the front desk people when we arrived. They were very helpful. Arranged tour company pickup for the next day for us, explained how to get to the underground station and where to get off for some sight seeing we wanted to do on our own, and directed us to a good place to eat our lunch. Appreciated the internet availability and enjoyed the breakfast. Plenty of food to choose from. We would be happy to use their facility again.

Hotel is literally around the corner from the Vatican Museum entrance. Charming and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast buffet. Room was clean and compact, but not cramped, and had plenty of storage space including a safe. Very comfortable bed, with a choice of pillows. Only complaint: lack of interior soundproofing. Conversation and TV in adjacent rooms and noises from corridor kept me awake. I would definitely stay here again, but bring earplugs for sleeping.

Great choice for our family of five, 2 adults & 3 teenagers. we booked a Superior double room and a triple room for the teenagers. The double was a bit small not to much room around the bed to walk but ok. The triple room was spacious. Size of rooms standard for Europe. With our room upgrade the hotel allowed us to have anything and everything unlimited from the mini bar, that was perfect since the street vendors and cafes charge anywhere from 2-5 euros for a water or cola drink. The staff is very helpfull and nice. Both of our rooms had a balcony with chairs and small table overlooking the front of the hotel we could see the Vatican wall from our balcony. The American-Italia breakfast was great, eggs, Italian bacon, meat links, cereals, cakes and fresh fruit etc.... we looked forward to breakfast. The shower is small but it works must lift legs up to wash can not bend over in the shower. Location to Vatican very close. Other attractions futher away, metro stop 5 minute walk. Supermarket 3 minute walk. Great cafe near Vatican called Insulata Ricca located in Pizza del Risorgimento. Huge salads. With very fresh produce, and other light dishes very good prices. The pronto pizza across from the hotel is ok, we ordered takeout from there one evening the prices are fair, they speak very little english. The Hotels room service and food is very good and cheap prices. I would recomend this hotel as a good value for the money we paid 125,00 euros a night for the superior double and 135,00 euros for the triple per night we booked the rooms thru a search engine database that shows what travel site is offering the best price. We spent 6 nights at this hotel. There is a self service laundry close if needed we used it we did not want to take dirty laundry on to Venice were we were to spend 5 more days. The laundry service is pricey wash 4,00 euros and dry 4,00 euros for 21 minutes of drying time. I would recomend this hotel and I would book this hotel again if I were to return

I would really recommend this hotel. The location was great as it was only 5 minutes away from the vatican which was very useful for one of our party who had slight mobility problems. I would reccomend the tour bus for anyone with mobility problems as it allowed you to see the sights with out having to walk about too much, there is one that leaves outside the vatican every half hour from 9.30a.m until 7.30 p.m. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful and they made the holiday even more special. Breakfast buffet was great even if the dining area was a bit small.

My wife and I travelled to Italy for the first time, with our 8 year old daughter. We can confirm that all what is said of Spring House Hotel in the web site is correct. The front desk staff, Romina and the rest of the team, are competent and friendly, always eager to assist. The rooms, bathroom and public areas are kept impeccably clean, and the full american breakfast is excellent and ample. Rooms are not big but... this is Europe. The Hotel is very close to the subway and to the impressive Vatican Museum. In short, Spring House Hotel is an excellent choice in Rome and we'd definetely use it again.

The hotel was excellent and me and my girlfriend had a good welcome despite arriving at nearly 2 am. We didn't want to spend a fortune as we didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room and wanted to see Rome so this was good value considering Rome prices. The included breakfast was very nice and the room was clean so don't worry girls and we had tea making facilities. The location is fine on a quiet street and of course Rome is very well spread out so it's advisable to use the nearby tube if you have say been near the Colosseum on the other side of the river. I would definitely come back and stay here. There were no real downsides. Sure the rooms are not massive but this is to be expected in Rome and we had a balcony. There was a nice local restaurant just around the corner. The air conditioning unit was marginally noisy at night time but don't be put off by this at all.

Our credit card number had been stolen & when we arrived at Spring House they had cancelled our reservations. We were told that e-mail had been sent, but we checked before & during our trip & there was no e-mail. It really was our fault not to notify them, but before we left, we checked Venere & were told our reservations were confirmed. We did not this problem with the Hotel California. Anyway, we were given a suite for the first night & then we shared the room with our son while our daughter & husband were given a double for the next 3 nights. The employees were very nice. Since this happened, we were given a break on the total price which was certainly fine with us. It was close to most of the important places in Rome & would recommend it & stay again if we were in Rome.

We had reserved a quadruple room but upon arrival there was none available so we were offered two double rooms for the same price. The rooms were side by side and the only ones of the seventh floor. Each air-conditioned room had a balcony. Of all the places we stayed at in France, Germany and Italy, this place I would rate the highest. We were in walking distance of the Vatican museum as well as St Peter's Square.

Este Hotel resulto una gran alternativa, creo que una de las mejores del nuestro viaje, es un lugar excelente, muy bien ubicado, muy cerca del Vaticano y a unas cuantas cuadras de las estaciones del metro de donde puedes ir a todos lados, el vecindario es agradable y seguro, además que el desyuno es muy completo y el servicio de restaurante es excelente, solo que en algunos horarios no hay personal de recepción que hablara español, pero no fue gran problema porque siempre estuvieron dispuestos a ayudar. Recomiendo ampliamente este lugar, puede que por reservar en un bed and Breakfasts ahorres unos euros, pero la vedad no vale la pena, es preferible pagar un poco más por estar en un lugar más confortable y con atención profesional, sobre todo si vas a Roma en verano el cuarto debe tener clima.

Have to say great hotel for the price, very clean, a bit out of the city if you plan on going into the centre of the town every night, but plenty of taxi available. plenty of restaurants in the location of the hotel . Situated right behind the vatican city but dont eat or drink right outside the square as you will pay for it !! Fantastic city to visit i will definitely be going back .

This hotel is a good choice if you don't want to stay right in the center. Public transportation is just a short walk away. The room offered was a bit battered (bathroom, mold in the closet), but quiet. A/C is a real pro at this time of the year. Breakfast and service were very good.

The location was excellent. Very close to the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Square. Although Rome is fairly walkable, the subway stop is only a few minutes away, and that will get you close to most sights. We didn't use buses but they're all over the place too. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and adequately sized. The bathroom was a bit small and the shower was very small, which is probably my only reservation about the accommodations. Towels were good. The breakfast was the best we had among all places we stayed, with pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt, eggs and bacon, juices and american coffee and cappuccino. I would definitely stay here again.

The location was great. We were one block from the Vatican in a central location and very close to public transportation. However, the hotel was not AT ALL what we had expected. First, the rooms are meant for 1 person (be prepared to use the bed to get accross to the other side of the room).Also, we spent the first four days with a flood in our bathroom (we couldn't use the toilet without the extra "shower"). After four days of mentioning it to several of the front desk staff, we finally asked to speak with the hotel manager. This of course never happened, but we were given a new room after we finally got the front desk manager to come see our room. I should mention, the front desk employees are not nearly as kind and helpfull as the janitors and kitchen staff. The website was also very misleading. It gave the inpression that Hotel Spring House was family owned, but when we arrived- a Best Western to our suprise! Overall, I must say that we did not have as pleasant of a two week stay as we had hoped for.

l'hotellerie romaine est chere, soit, nous avons pu le verifier lors de notre voyage lors de notre arrivée dans le premier hotel (2 nuits seulement et fort heureusement.... a l'hotel virgilio qui ressemble à un gite d'accueil des années 60 sans confort pour 155 € la nuit!!!!!!!!!! hotel que nous retrouvons sur le site venere et a eviter a tout prix!!!!)puis, ouf, 2 nuits au spring house pour un montant de 460 €!!! hotel de belle qualité générale à 2 tout petit pas du vatican et relativement bien rénové, pourvu de ne pas avoir de chambre sur la rue (la ville est bruyante...) et ne pas se retrouver a coté d'une chambre de groupe de touriste (isolation un peu juste...). donc pas de vrai gros probleme hors-mis la "salle de bain" qui n'est autre qu'une cabine de douche agrandie et dans laquelle l'eau chaude ne l'est que sur papier... nottons quand meme la qualite du petit dejeuner et du repas du soir servi en chambre a un prix excessivement raisonnable et copieux (environ 30% moins chers qu'a la brasserie du coin)nous pouvons donc considerer qu'il s'agit d'un standard romain. pour les voyageurs amoureux de l'italie un conseil d'ami pour venise : l'hotel dona palace que l'on retrouve d'ailleurs sur ce site nous a laisser une seul impression : y retourner a tout prix et dés que possible (place san marco)

First and foremost, I would like to say that the location of the hotel is excellent. Not only is it close to the Vatican Museum, and St Peter's Square, but it is also very well linked. The metro station is only about 5 minutes walk away and journey times into central Rome is merely 15 minutes. Overall the hotel does live up to its 3* accommodation rating with clean and well-kept rooms, and good quality breakfast. However, I was quite disappointed with the quad room provided for us. The size of it was of a standard double room with one double bed and two fold-out single beds squashed into the corners. There was a door in the room that would normally lead to an adjoining twin/double room (as shown on the website), but was instead blocked by one of the fold-out beds. We felt deceived and cheated, as we paid the maximum charge for the "quad room" and were given what I consider to be a 3* standard double room. I just found it appalling that in order to accept more guests during the busy period of the new Pope's inauguration and Rome's liberation day celebration, the hotel would compromise on some guests' accommodation and still charge the full price.

Rooms are small but your not there to spend your day s and nights in a room. Good access to public transportation.Good places to eat in area.Vatican within close walking distance,you can get to anywhere in the city with ease from this hotel.Overall a good value for your money if you really shop around as i did before we traveled there.IF you want a spacious room and as well kept as the rooms here, in this good of a location you will have to pay at least 2 to 3 times the amount as the Spring House. Enjoy your stay.

Wonderful location if you want to spend a lot of time at Vatican. Convenient to the rest of Rome - you can walk (30 minutes) or take metro 2-4 stops to major sites. Price over Easter very high but that is to be expected. Very helpful staff. Neighborhood is a bit dull, not the picturesque, lively "Roman" scene.

It was great being close to the Vatican and the shopping area and restaurants near the hotel. The breakfasts were excellent especially the cappucinos. The chocolates and the turned down bedcovers on our first night was a treat. The family room was perfect for us and our two teenage daughters. Overall we enjoyed both the hotel and the area and would stay here again. The subway was close by and convenient for exploring other areas of Rome.

This is a great little hotel, it is absolutely ideal if you're looking for a short break in Rome. The staff are very pleasant and obliging, and the breakfast buffet is more than adequate. The hotel is in a fantastic location close to the Vatican Museum, and just out of earshot from the noise and hussle of the busy roads. St Peter's Square is 10 minutes away on foot, and from there you have a choice of routes to visit the various sites of Rome, all within comfortable walking distance, or if not public transport is conveniently situated nearby. There are various restaurants a block or two from the hotel if you don't want to venture far for your evening meal, and there are plenty of small shops in the vicinity. The only downside was the room for 4 people we had was small, but that was expected. The room was adequate as we were out and about for most of the day. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, it represents great value.

Das Hotel, in einer kleinen ruhigen Nebenstrasse gelegen, bietet einen guten Anschluss an die U-Bahn. Vatikan und Museen sind zu Fuss erreichbar, das Zentrum sonst etwas weit weg. Das Zimmer für vier Personen an der Grenze, doch sehr guter Frühstücksservice mit ausgezeichnetem Capuccino und einer persönlichen Bedienung. Auf jeden Fall ist das Hotel weiterzuempfehlen!

The Spring House is clean and close to the Vatican. It also provides great breakfasts, with a wide assortment of foods to suit American and European tastes. But beyond that, there is little to recommend this hotel. The rooms are microscopic, the smallest we found anywhere in Italy. The reception staff are perfunctory. And what little signage there is in the hotel is confusing. If we had it to do over again, we would not stay at the Spring House.

We had a wonderful room on the sixth floor but there are no great views - unless perhaps from the 7th floor. We did share a cozy meal of antipasto and pizza with a couple of bottles of wine with friends on our small balcony. Great fun! It was very near the Vatican Museum and only a 10 minute walk to St Peter's. On Saturday morning at 8:30 AM, the line for the museum was longer than the walk to the museum - almost to St Peter's plaza. The breakfasts were the best we experienced in the three places (other two significantly less expensive) we stayed in Italy ... from a North American's perspective anyway! Eggs and bacon and wieners (not breakfast sausage!), good pastries, cold cereal and excellent cappuccino and caffè latte. The staff was very competent. The person who checked us in (I should have gotten his name) was most helpful. The woman in charge of the breakfast room was very pleasant and obviously took great pride in her work. We'd stay here again should we be so lucky as to be in Roma again. Pace e bene.

The internet connection may be a problem for non italians. If you need connect to Internet, try to obtain previously an italian ISP for connect by phone. May be tiscali.it ("internet gratis"). Now, in my house, I see sites like Tiscali, but in Roma, without connection, is hard to obtain one free account --one oxymoron: you need Internet connection in order to obtain one internet connection. I think that maybe the hotel employees can inform about this detail. The hotel is modern, clean, good located, the price is reasonable and the employees are kind and helpful (except to solve the Internet connection question :) The 4 bed room doesn't lets free space. Consider 2 double rooms if you plans going many hours in the hotel or needs a table to work. The quadruple room

I can recommend this place, also the restaurants given in the list in the rooms were good to very good.

The hotel was small and there was only one elevator that took forever. When we arrived we were told that although they could see our reservation via computer, it had not been confirmed and that they were fuul (the paperwork I recieved via your web site showed that the room had been confirmed) This is something that needs to be adjusted. After much converstion between the staff, a room was found. We had to wait about 45 minutes and 4 of us were squished into a little room. I have to say though, that for the price, it was not too bad of a deal.

We were delighted to find that Spring House is almost on the doorstep of the Vatican Museums entrance, and only a short walk away from St Peter's Square. For us, the location was ideal. There are also many excellent restaurants within 3 or 4 blocks. The staff was very helpful with our requests for tours and our many questions. A good value for the money, we would stay there again if we were in Rome.
