The hotel has an ideal location. A lot of the top sites in Rome are within walking distance, and it's just 15 minutes walk from Termini. The hotel lies in a relatively quiet neighbourhood, with a lot of nice informal restaurants just around the corner (the only bad experience was when we followed a recommendation from one of the hotel employees). Our room was quite small, but charming. The breakfast was nice.

We were three persons in one room and stayed for four days. Most important for our choice of hotel was the location, which was excellent. We were able to walk to all the main sights, The people in the reception were all very nice and helpful! Tha room was very clean and quiet. The only thing we did not like was that the roof terrace was so tiny, and had several tables for two, so that we had to eat inside at two occasions. The terrace was only open at breakfast time. The breakfast staff could have been more smiling and friendly,

Very nice hotel located in the heart of Rome, very near the coliseum, Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, Medici gardens and other important sights. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choices to eat before venturing out. The room was small but with enough space for the three of us. The only issue is the failure of the air acconditioner to cool the room. The air was working but the room never got as comfortable as we want it to be. The hotel personnel is very friendly and helpful. Overall a very good place to stay.

Great wine bar just down the street. Breakfast was delicious, warm croissants and great coffee at the roof top garden each morning. The staff very kind to my husband and our children.

I was traveling alone, for a brief 3-night stay (first time in Rome). I could not have found a better (central) location for seeing a number of the major sights (exception: the vatican) of Rome on foot, as well as access to metro. My room was very, very small (for the price, it seemed to me); however, it was very quiet, clean, with comfortable bed, and there was sufficient closet space (and hangers). The bathroom was very clean and modern, although the hair dryer hose was in disrepair and could not be used (of no consequence to me, since I had my own). I found the desk managers most helpful (I speak little Italian)with regard to restaurantrecommendations, getting oriented, and arranging for pickup to the airport. I would seriously consider staying at the Hotel Apollo again.

This hotel was close to the Coliseum, and walking distance from the Cavour Metro and a fairly easy walk to the Trevi Fountain. I knew it would be expensive to stay at a "nice hotel" in Rome. From what I've heard this was a pretty good deal based on the location, quiet room, clean hotel, and good service we received. The continental breakfast was very nice with a good variety. The room was not spacious, but I've been told you're not really going to find that in a hotel in Rome unless you are paying over $300/night (we paid about $260). We were looking for a quiet room, not a big one, since our goal was to be out during the day and just be in the room for sleeping. We were very satisfied since we couldn't hear any street noise. A couple of times we could hear people in a neighboring room, but it did not disturb us. Overall, very satisfied.

Our room at hotel Apollo had a surprisingly beautiful bathroom. We wanted to have a view of the Colosseum, but I would be surprise if there was such a thing at hotel Apollo since it is located sideways from this magnificent monument. It is however possible to see it as the pictures show, if you stick your head way out of the window and turn it to your left. The staff was very knowledgeable and mulitlingual however one suggested to go to a restaurant called Petrucci, it sounded like they had some business together, but we wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The food wasn't fresh, the meat cuts were bad and the ambiance was terrible. We had an overall nice and comfortable experience at Apollo and it had some luxuries of a 4 star hotel. It is very well located and we would most probably go back if we wanted to see more of Rome.

The Hotel Apollo was exceptionally clean and well-maintained. It was such a pleasant experience as we had just come from a not-so-pleasant dirty hotel in Pisa. Although the room was small, it was very nice, quiet, and comfortable. The Hotel Apollo which is just down the street from the coloseum is in a great location for seeing all the main sights in Rome. The breakfast was also exceptional and included cappuccino, pastries, cheese, ham, cereal, breads, etc. Unfortunately, we were unable to enjoy it on the open roof because it was raining during the early morning. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We had the top floor suite that can sleep up to 5 comfortably so for our family of 4 we hads lots of space. The air conditioning was a welcome relief from the 35 C heat of Rome and the balcony overlooking the colosseum was an added bonus. The owners/management was very friendly but the best part about this property was its location...very close to the forum, colloseo and affordable cafes near the Cavour metro station and Isola Tiberina

El hotel está muy bien situado. Relativamente cerca tanto de la Roma antígua como de la Roma barroca. Vía dei Serpenti es una calle muy tranquila, que dispone de varios restaurantes y de algunas tiendas de alimentación. Cuenta también con otro tipo de comercios, entre ellos, un establecimiento de internet muy útil y no caro. Por la noche, el barrio, tiene una animada vida nocturna. El personal del hotel es muy atento y familiar. Los desayunos son excelentes y abundantes. La limpieza es buena. Se cambian diariamente todas las toallas del baño. La habitación dispone de teléfono,TV, nevera, secador de pelo, en perfecto funcionamiento. Nuestra estancia allí, durante 16 días, fue muy agradable y volveríamos sin dudarlo.

I would certainly recommend the Apollo for anybody making a trip to Rome. Its location within walking distance of many of the main attractions in the city makes it an excellent base.

Muy recomendable para visitar Roma. Está muy cerca de todos los sitios principales y no se tarda más de 10 minutos andando a la zona del Coliseo/Foros, pero tampoco más de 15 minutos hasta la Fontana de Trevi, por ejemplo. Es bastante silencioso y muy limpio. Lástima que el Internet vía WIFI no sea gratuito. El desayuno, sin ser Continental,es más que suficiente para considerarlo completo (no ponen huevos, ni baicon ni salchichas) y el capuccino es fantástico. Además, en la misma calle puedes encontrar Trattorias y restaurantes buenos y baratos y una cafetería de primer orden. En definitiva, si volvieramos a Roma volveríamos a este Hotel. Gracias.

Our room was exceptionslly small, although our friends room was a bit larger. Our room was particularly noisey in the evening, as we had to leave the window open for ventilation (many people laughing & talking as they walked by the hotel until the wee hours) and couldn't get the A/C to work. The staff told us that the A/C wasn't available because the hotel was not full. Needless to say, it was a warm, noisey evevning. The breakfast area was on their roof garden with seating both inside & out. It was charming and their cappucinos were delicious! Nice selection for breakfast.

The Hotel was perfectly situated within the City and not too far from the Train station. There were 6 of us travelling together (in 3 rooms). Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was a beautiful start to the day. The capuccino's were excellent too. There were many great restaurants close by to the Hotel. The rooms at the front of the building (on the main road) were a bit noisier with the garbage cans being emptied at 2:00 or 3:00 a.m., however, would still not hesitate to recommend this Hotel to anyone.

It was a small, family-run hotel. The room was rather spacious, clean and quiet although the shower corner was very, very small. The breakfast at the roof top terrace was nice. Although the hotel did not encash euro travelers check, the hotel showed me a money changer at five minutes walk who encashed T/C with a reasonable three percent commission. There was a super market at a few minutes walk from the hotel. There were several bus stops along the near main street and we used bus and subway services very often.

The Apollo was a good choice for a mid-priced, clean, well run hotel in Rome, where it is hard to find something decent at this price. Breakfast on the rooftop garden was good, although a bit sparse if you get there late. Room and bathroom were very clean, staff was friendly and helpful. A few complaints, but minor ones--one light was missing a bulb, towels were thin, and TV didn't work but the remote probably just needed a new battery which we didn't bother asking for as we didn't need the TV anyway. Overall, a good bargain for Rome. We walked everywhere, although it is quite a hike to Spanish Steps area. This was our third trip to Rome, just spent a few days there before heading north to Venice and Lake Como. Were glad to get away from the hustle and bustle of Rome, even though we love it!

Das Frühstück war nicht besonders, aber die Lage super. Wenn man aus dem Hotel kam, konnte man am Ende der Strasse das Kolosseum sehen. War dann aber immer noch ein Fussmarsch von 10 Minuten.

On our trip to Italy, my family and I stayed in 2 different Rome hotels, and only 1 night at the Apollo. I would stay there again if I had the opportunity. The family that runs it is wonderful, the rooms were the best we had anywhere - spacious, clean, and well furnished, and the Colosseum is within easy walking distance of the hotel. Grazie! I would recommend Hotel Apollo to anyone, young or mature.

Everything about the Apollo was pleasant, given that it's a budget hotel and you don't expect much as a single traveler. Public areas are close to nil, but breakfast was served in a roof garden full of jasmine. It's near the station but on a side street and there are good restaurants all around. I would use it again as a base for all sorts of activities in central Rome.

Very nice, very friendly, typical family hotel. Stayed there to feast our 25th wedding anniversary and the owner was very helpful in getting a champagne-breakfast organised. Also very well situated near city centre and/or suitable buses. Hope to get back some time.

This is a family owned hotel in a great location for visiting all the sites of Rome by foot (one day we walked for six hours and saw nearly everything) or on the "Hop on hop off" bus which leaves from the Forum (at the bottom of the road). The bed and bathrooms are well appointed and, since we were located at the back, quiet. Rooms overlooking the road might be noisier. The owners were really helpful and friendly although they do not speak a lot of English. We loved the rooftop breakfast room and the breakfast buffet was fresh and plentiful. There is a great restaurant just around the corner "Tavernelle" which has a full range of Italian dishes, but specializes in seafood. We would definitely go back to the Apollo Hotel and recommend it to anyone else

Hotel Apollo is located right in the middle of Rome, with bus stop around the corner to get to all important places. The room was very small but with everything I needed (the bath was nearly bigger than the room itself). I got a room to the back yard, so there was no noise at all. The breakfast on the top of the roof was good. An excellent place to stay in Rome when you just want to see a lot of places and not spending much time at the hotel.

It was a great hotel. It is centrally located to the Colisseum and not far from the Trevi Fountain. It is a quiet street but accessible to good shopping on Via Nazionale street. We were able to walk to most of the locations. The hotel is very clean and the service is very good. It is family owned, their english is limited but they are still very helpful. We received maps, they will call reasonable taxis, and they gave us great suggestions for restaurants. They are very accomdating. I would defintely stay again. Also, the breakfast on the rooftop was a nice addition. I would highly recommend the hotel

Hotel Apollo was great! The staff was very friendly, most of them spoke English, they were very helpful with info about buses, taxis, attractions, etc. There is a room offering internet access. Breakfast was good - lots of fruit, cereal, rolls, juices, cold cuts, cheeses, American coffee (they will happily make capacino or espresso). No bacon/eggs but we're not in the USA! Our room was fine, with Tv, safe, refrig. The maids made it up daily. Bathroom was huge - small shower but par for Europe. Location was ideal - you can see the Colesseum from the hotel (maybe 6 blocks away). It's an easy stroll to Trevi, a little farther to Spanish Steps, Parthenon, Piazza Narvona, etc. Easy bus connection to the Vatican. Several restaurants within 1-2 blocks - also great gelato store. The price was as advertised which was very reasonable for Rome. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our first time to Rome with a 4 night stay at the Apollo. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helped with our questions in every way. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and the wonderful capaccinos every morning! The location was very handy and very close to the sights. We appreciate the assistance with sedan service for our return flight home. I would highly recommend the hotel and hopefully we will be back soon! Thank you!!

I found this hotel to be just as it was pictured in the review. Rooms spacious, bathroom quite large, hot shower. Breakfast was good, with warm pastries and rolls, cereals, yogurt, and an assortment of juices. Enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace. Wish the terrace was open later in the evening for drinks.

The location was very good. Breakfast excellent. The shower door in our first room did not fit so floor got rather wet! The shower in the room we had on our return to Rome was very small but adequate if one was not a large person which neither my husban or I are! Staff were very helpful. Overall the hotel was good considering the price and quality of Rome Hotels.

Our overall experience at the Apollo was very positive. Staff were very helpful, and ready to answer any questions we had. They offered help to arrange tours, and they contacted a driver with a large van to drive us to the airport, at a reasonable price. We had a suite for 4 people, which was pretty large and comfortable, and had its own terrace. The air conditioner worked perfectly. Another couple that travelled with us had the suite for 2, which was also nice but their bathroom was very small. Breakfast was Ok, the setting in the terrace was nice, and staff were welcoming and courteous.

Very welcoming, after a train ride from Napoli we were quickly shown our room and began exploring Rome again. An easy walk to the Trevi fountain, Il Rotondo, and Piazza Navona and a view of the Colosseo from our room as well! On our same street were two restaurants with good food and wine and reasonable prices. Would stay here again without any hesitation. The hotel staff was excellent and the room was large and clean with a big bathroom. Grazie Apollo!

We were on a birthday trip to Rome, for the first time. Location of hotel is very good being close to the old parts and sights. Surroundings have good service with shops, restaurants and piazzas. Bus traffic also good with a small electric bus going to central locations. The bed was too narrow and soft for two persons. We bothed "rolled" into the middle because it was so soft. We are a couple from Finland and are used to a breakfast with cold cuts, dark bread and something fresh. The cuts were OK but bread was white rolls every morning. No vegetables were served and all the cereals were with added sugar.

This is a great location and excellant hotel. We did not met other people as such, but saw people at the breakfast room. I was travelling with my husband, we stayed in two different rooms on different floors as we were there for 1 night each time, two weeks apart. We arrived early and were able to go to our room. The hotel is family run and small and very friendly, those we dealt with spoke English.
