Bathroom fittings were rather grubby. Bed was not at all comfortable, and pillow was like a brick. Plumbing noises from other rooms was intrusive. OK for a one night transit, but wouldn't want to stay for much longer.

I had a very nice mini vacation in Rome, Carlo Magno was the perfect accommodation for our purpose, very good price/quality rate. Downtown is easily accessible, nice, big, comfortable bed, the only annoyance was that we could hear our neighbor's TV once in the night. I definitely would recommend this hotel to everyone.

We were happy with our stay at Carlo Magno and will not hesitate to stay again. The location is only about 20-25 minutes to Termini or 30 minutes to Piazza Venezia. A big plus is that the Nomentana train stop is three blocks and a train goes directly to FCO about eveery 15-30 minutes for 5 Euro.

Buona sistemazione, corrispondente alla descrizione fornita dal sito Venere. Stanza adeguata alle nostre esigenze con un bimbo di 8 mesi. Personale cortese e disponibile. Gradevole la colazione servita sulla terrazza. Qualche piccola pecca nella manutenzione dell'arredo bagno, ma nulla di grave. Consigliamo per i pasti la Bisteccheria "da Palazzo" che si trova a 200 metri in Largo Valsugana. Il giudizio nell'insieme è più che buono. Grazie.

Though this place is a bit far from the main city and takes around 30 mins to reach the main station by bus. It is still very convinient as you would need to take only one single bus even to reach the Piazza Venezia which is the center for all the architecture in Rome.

After arriving late in the evening we were warmly greeted at Hotel Carlo Magno, which was lovely. The hotel and rooms could use a bit of paint to freshen it up, but the rooms were clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Its location was perfect - express bus 90 took 15 miniutes to get to the Termini station and bus 60 took about 20 minutes to get to withing walking distance of the Colosseum - both left from outside the hotel (frequent and convenient!). Breakfast was fine, but nothing special. I would stay here again.

Wir können das Hotel sehr empfehlen. Wir waren im August 2008 dort und haben für das Doppelzimmer mit Frühstück 54 EUR bezahlt. Das Bad war sauber, die Klimaanlage hat einwandfrei funktioniert und die Angestellten waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Hotel liegt außerhalb des Stadtgebietes, was wir aber sehr gut fanden. In der Nähe gibt es zwei Bushaltestellen, von denen man in die Stadt fahren kann (1 EUR pro Fahrt). Das Frühstück entspricht natürlich nicht dem in Deutschland, aber wir haben jeden Morgen dort gefrühstückt. Es kommt halt immer darauf an, auf was man Wert legt. Also Preis-Leistung war völlig in Ordnung.

The hotel is well communicated by bus to the center of the city (good communication to (Piazza Venezia). There's is a good restaurant in front of the hotel, and there are some pizzerias near it. The installations of the hotel were very good. It's a good option to stay in Rome if you don't matter to take a bus to go to the main attractions of the city. The terrace for breakfast has great views... a good way to start the day!

This was a nice hotel. We think the staff was very friendly. When my gf was ill they gave some medicine for relief her headache. Very attentive! The room was clean, and the bathroom very good and clean. Good supply of towels. Nice bath tub. Great bed with lots of good pillows. Very warm in the hotel. Airco didn't work though, but we were there in Februari so no problem with that. Just 200m to the Nomentano train station which is great when you'll arrive. Good connection to Termini in 10 min with express bus 90. Get out at bus stop 'Val d'Aosta'. Try the restaurant opposite the hotel. It's specialized in fish, and really outstanding for a good price. Make a reservation, because it's always full with Italians ;)It also sells cheap pizza; also for take away. Opens at 20.00h. The elevator makes strange noises sometimes and never ever pull the rope in the bathroom next to the tub, for it's an emergency rope! They didn't tell you that by forehand. Alarms will go off when you pull it! The walls between rooms are thin ones. Only Italian broadcast on TV. The breakfast is poor, just some non-perishable croissants or bread and crackers. Make sure you don't get your coffee from the machine but ask the waitress instead! All by all I think it's a good place for what you'll pay. We would go there again next time!

The staff was so unpleasant. Everywhere else in Italy I was greeted kindly, but not here. The staff was mean at times and rather rude when we had a problem with a taxi. The bed and blankets were very hard and uncomfortable. I would rate the breakfast a bit below average. An organization recommended me to stay in this hotel because it was close to their office, but I have encouraged them not to find a new recommendation for the future.

A very enjoyable stay in a hotel that is definitely good value for the money we paid (69 euros a night). The room was clean and tidy, with room reburbishment every day. Coming from Ciampino via Terravision bus service to the downtown bus Termini, we had a little trouble finding the hotel, but for future travellers take the 90 express bus from the Termini down Via Nomentana (a long straight main road) and hop off the bus after you pass a Fiat garage on your left. This is also the best bus to take if you want to get into the Termini of a morning to then get a connection to San Pietro, airport etc, although the 60 bus will take you to Pza. Venizia, from which all the sights are walkable. We bought bus tickets but it is worth noting that hardly anyone in Rome pays and payment is not enforced at all (?). There is a cyber cafe over the road from the hotel - handy as the hotel's internet wasnt working. Also the air con seemed to be busted, we could only get it to heat our room and not cool it down. Opening the window is not an option due to traffic noise. Also note that you can hear the people in the next room to you breathe. The staff were helpful and spoke good English, and the breakfast was superb considering it was included in the price. For local dinner try the restaurant over the road, ask for Marcello, or go down Nomentana for a takeaway pizza. All in all myself and my mate were very pleased with the hotel and would definitely stay there again if we come back. Recommended.

We went to Rome off-season so we had a really cheap room (30 Euros per night per person incl. breakfast). So the relationship between price and quality was great, because the room would normally cost 170 Euros per night in peak season. The room was air-conditioned and had a TV, a small fridge and a gratuitous small safe. The breakfast was surprisingly good with cereals, bread, rolls, toast, croissants, different species of jam, a variety of coffee, etc. I know from other hotels in Italy that this is a great selection. Also the dining area was very comfy and the view during breakfast on the roof-deck is a great start into the day. The housekeeping went pretty quickly through the room. They did their best but in the corners was always some dust. Anyhow we got new towels everyday and the bathroom was clean (what is most important to me). The staffw as always friendly and told us a lot about the different buslines and where we have to watch for pickpockets and other stuff thats important for newbies in Rome. Another advantage is the location of the hotel. Although you have to drive about twenty minutes from the cental station to the hotel by bus (which is really tough when there are 38°C) you have some cheap supermarkets and fruit-boothes around the corner and down the Via Nomentana. And if you want to go out the busses are driving till late evening. The only negative point in this hotel was the elevator where we got stuck in twice (so we walked every morning from second floor to the dining area on seventh floor). Another point is the indirect connection from one bathroom to the other: you could hear people speak there if you were silent in yours. But apart from that the hotel is great and I would recommend the hotel to everyone who visits rome and who like some comfort even if you are a poor student like me.

Alle Vorgaben unserer (ersten) online-Buchung wurden erfüllt. Wir legten Wert auf ein ruhiges Zimmer, das nicht zur Straße liegt (empfehlenswert). Das Hotel erreicht man direkt vom Flughafen mit dem Nahverkehrszug; von der Haltestelle erreicht man es in 5-10 Minuten zu Fuß. In der Nähe des Hotels gibt es Bushaltestellen (an der Rezeption erfragen) von dort aus man in 15-20 Minuten in das Zentrum gelangt (abends verkehren auch sog. Nachtexpress-Busse). Tip: Gegenüber dem Hoteleingang bietet ein Restaurant exzellente Fischgerichte an.

Hotel Carlo Magno was a good enough hotel for us, the receptionist was helpful most of the time (they replaced the shower head because the water flow was too weak), the beds were fine, and it was a comfortable rest. However, the room smelled like smoke (told them about it, apparently it comes back due to some unknown reason). So what I did was I kept the windows open when we were outside of the room (opening the window during your sleep would result to a very noisy room as you can hear Via Momentana -- a very big road leading to Rome which is close to the hotel) Breakfast wansnt a full continental, but it was fine. Bread, some fruits and some coffee or hot chocolate plus some juices are available. We would even wrap some bread with jam to bring to rome just in case we get hungry. The room was a bit big and they were comfortable enough. Some noise comes in even with the window closed, but doesnt really pose much of a problem for us. Location wise, it was not very well. Although Bus 60 would take you to central Rome, it usually takes a while to get there because of the traffic. Plus the 60 is always full, and very crowded. Very difficult to get home when you are already tired and cant sit down because you have to stand up for 30-40 mins from Piazza Venezia. I suggest you find a hotel closer to central Rome.

Carlo Magno is a decent hotel, placed north of downtown Rome, 15 minutes away from the closest subway station. There are busses that go by the hotel and can take you to Termini train and subway stations. That's also a bus hub and you can continue your trip using the same bus ticket. The stuff is very friendly, speaks excellent english and can be very helpful. Ask for a map at the reception. Our room was at the end of the hall, towards the main street and was very noisy due to the heavy traffic. However, we were very tired after walking miles and miles and didn't bother us too much. You have free parking in front of the hotel but consider using the transit system as it is reliable and cheaper than renting a car. Continental breakfast is included, but we started to lose our appetite, as we would eat the same thing every morning. Just for diversity, I would try another hotel next time around, but would consider Carlo Magno too.

AIR CONDITIONING? One of the primary reasons we chose this hotel was the statement of individually controlled AC! Do not be fooled! We were quite warm, no air conditioning in either of the rooms. Other than that the stay was fine. The rooms (2 quads) were very spacious, and the staff was quite friendly. A new hoover, and some scrub on the walls would help. I wish I had researched the location a bit more. It is quite out of the way to reach the tourist attractions (20+ min) on very crowded buses with little children... not fun. The bus/metro pass was great (the newsagent was very helpful-and spoke excellent english). We ended up taking the bus to the closest metro and then the metro worked much better. I have to agree that the area seemed more Italian, and less touristy. The pizza down the street, and the gelato down the street were both good, and open late. We have visited Rome a few times and the hotel would be great... if it was not so far out of the city.

If you take the FM-1 train (sometimes called FR-1) from Fiumicino airport and get off at Nomentana as the web site directs, make sure you turn RIGHT at the bottom of the stairs! We were a bit lost and there aren't many English speaking people in that neighbourhood to help. When you get out to the street, you should see a sign for the hotel. If you don't, you went the wrong way. Good access to the city centre, with three or four bus routes just outside the door. The price is not bad for Rome. Rooms were decent and clean. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant across the street was also quite good and they had english menus. Overall we were satisfied. It was a good way to see Rome without having to pay astronomical prices. Recommended.

The on-line room pictures looked a lot nicer than reality. Despite my telling both the day and night desk clerk that the air conditioner wasn't working, no attempt was made to fix the problem or switch us rooms so we had to suffer through a lot of street noise with the window open. When I complained about this at check-out and asked for a discount, the lady said there was no note of a problem and refused. She also gave me a hard time when I showed her an e-mail saying we were entitled to a measly 5 euro discount for my son being a missionary (it was about the closest hotel to the mission home) but finally relented. Poor customer service. Way overpriced for what you get.

Really enjoyed my stay at the Carlo Magno. The rooms are of a good standard. The breakfast consists of a buffet of cereal coffee, bread and jam. The hotel is about a 15 minute bus ride to the central train station. This isn't a problem as the buses run very frequently (The 90 stops very close to the hotel). If you are in Rome for a few days I would recomend getting a 3 day pass which gives you unlimitted bus and metro travel. Would also recomend the resteraunt opposite the hotel. Food was good and reasonably priced. We arrived in Rome via Ciampino airport. This is probably about 10 miles to the south of Rome. The easiest way to get from the airport is the coach service Terrorvision. This costs about 12 euros return (Buy tickets from the office in the airport)and takes you to the central train station.

El hotel Carlo Magno es en general un buen hotel. Dispone de habitaciones amplias y limpias, y tiene un buen servicio amable y competente. El servicio de desayuno es un poco justo, pero bueno. No dispone de servicio de cocina, pero hay un restaurante justo enfrente, así como una pizzería y otro restaurante dos calles más abajo por vía Nomentana. El hotel está situado un poco lejos del centro, pero hay autobuses urbanos con mucha frecuencia y la parada del bus está a menos de cien metros (recomendable para ir al centro mucho más que el metro)

If I hadn't stayed in a fabulous and less expensive hotel in Rome at the beginning of our trip, I may have been more impressed with Carlo Magna.

Etwas außerhalb der Innenstadt gelegen, aber gut mit dem Bus zu erreichen. Zu Fuß wäre es wohl zu weit, geschätzt ca. 45 Minuten. Der Verkehr wird als relativ laut empfunden, am offenen Fenster schlafen zu wollen, dazu muss man es schon von zu Hause aus gewohnt sein. Die Angestellten, egal ob an der Rezeption oder im Frühstücksraum, sind sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Die Zimmer sind sauber und zweckmäßig eingerichtet, aber realtiv klein. Das Frühstück ist für italienische Verhältnisse normal, Kaffee in allen Variationen gibt es genügend. Beim nächsten mal nehmen wir ein paar Scheiben Käse mit. Alles in allem kann man sich bei dem Hotel nicht beklagen, es ist zwar aufgrund der Nähe zur Hauptstrasse relativ laut, aber das ist für eine Großstadt wie Rom normal. Fazit: Empfehlenswertes Hotel für Städttouren.

for 100 euros a night, it is expensive for a hotel located so far from the heart of the city, as a lone traveller, its a long way home after a long day of walk. there is a bus that goes directly to the train station but to the city centre, I say 300 meters of walk. cabs from the hotel to the station or any good spots in rome may range from 12 to 16 euros. pictures look very grand from venere.com which turned out decent in the end. but definately clean and a helpful hotel staff

We had a great 4 days in Rome at Carlo Magno. Hotel staff at reception were exceedingly friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a nice buffet (bearing in mind the very reasonable room prices). Rooms are perfectly adequate and match the 3 star rating. Location is about 20 minutes by bus from city centre, but buses extremely frequent (normally every 5 minutes) - though all buses in Rome can get crowded. Direct bus service to Stazione Termini as well, which was useful at beginning and end of our stay. Only word of caution - there is only a very limited choice of eating places in the vicinity in the evening (though some excellent value pizza available during the day, and to take away). Definitely worth considering if your budget is limited but you don't want to go downmarket.

I think that Carlo Magno was superb, just what me and my friend needed. The hotel is located around 15-20 min outside Rome city centre, but the busses run frequently. Only negative thing about the busses are that they often are very crowded and then you just have to behave like an Italian and squeeze in!The bus stop by the hotel is called Val d'Aosta (or something like that)the hotel is just opposite the bus stop where you can see a big HOTEL sign on the house corner, DON'T get confused by a yellow Carlo Magno hotel sign that is located around 400 meters before the bus stop!! The best restaurant we came across was without a doubt the restaurant opposite the hotel, it's brilliant. Next time I come to Rome, I'll definitly be staying at the Carlo Magno. Say Hi to Andrea (the waiter at the restaurant opposite ) for me:-)he is gorgeous!

This hotel is situated 15-20 minutes from the centre of Rome. There is a frequent bus-service to the centre, however I personally preffered taking a taxi. 10-12 Euros is not that bad considering a crammed bus is the alternative. There is no Metro service to the hotel. The street-side rooms are a bit noisy. The staff speaks English well, and can help you with any information you may need. Not much to do around the hotel, this is in the sub-urbs of Rome. There's a nice pizza place across the street with good food. Overall a nice, cheap alternative.

The hotel is easy to reach by bus 36, 90 from Termini in about 15-20min. Bus stops are 100m from hotel at main road that runs by. To go right into town (Piazza Venezia, Colosseum, Forums, etc) take the 60 Express that stops just 200m down the road. Since it is so easy to access historic down-town, this is a great Hotel. The price we paid was great and also included breakfast. Breakfast was also very good (buffet with cereal, coffee, juices, rolls, croissants, etc.). Rooms are very clean and the sound proof windows keep out the noise of the big road that runs right by. Maybe not a good idea to sleep by the open window. The restaurant accross the street is really good (go before 8:00 PM or you will not get a seat). There is another restaurant (does not have all menue items every day) just about 150m to the left as you walk out of the hotel.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. There were an Italian restaurant and a take away pizza shop very nearby. Both of them were very nice. The only problem was the information said it was in near Nomentano "metro" station but it was not metro, local train station. It was inconvenient for us. But you can go to central Rome by bus easily.

I'm very satisfied from this accomodation, from the begin of my vacation . The fare for the taxi from Tiburtina station to carlo Magno is around 12 Euros (be aware!). The welcoming is very warm and professional, even at night. The employess are almost prepared about the city tours, public transportation, restaurants and pubs. The neighbourhood is not very full of restaurants but the few locals are cheap and the food is quite good (I suggest to try the restaurant on the other side of the street).I advise everybody to get a room in this Hotel , it has a very good relationship between price and quality. I dare you to find another nice place at 80euros/night in this area....

El hotel esta en una zona tranquila y bastante bien comunicada, tanto con el aeropuerto como con el centro de Roma; aunque en este ultimo caso un poco lejos y dependias del trafico (caotico, por otra parte) para poder tardar un tiempo razonable en llegar. El hotel es suficientemente comodo y limpio. Adecuado al nivel de 3 estrellas. Si algun dia volviesemos a Roma creo que volveriamos a elegir el mismo hotel. La relacion calidad/precio es muy razonable comparandola con el resto de oferta de la ciudad; sobretodo en el centro que es muy caro.

We read lots of the previous reviews as we were particularly concerned about the location. We couldn't get a taxi to take us from Termini to the hotel when we arrived - they said it was too far away. However, once we did find our way there, the buses into town were fairly regular and did not take too much time. And the restaurant across the road was very good. My one real complaint is that they had turned off all of the air-conditioning (because it was October apparently) so we had to have the door open for some air (as it was still very hot) which meant we were kept awake by the loud traffic noises from the main street.

This is my favorite hotel in Rome: reasonable, quiet, convenient, spotlessly clean, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, yet well connected with all points of interest by several buses (#60, 84, etc.). The staff is friendly and competent; the free internet access on the mezzanine is a great feature and ... the restaurant "Grazia Deledda" right across the street from the hotel is EXTRAORDINARY!!! The only negative point is the hotel breakfast service. In my experience, it is very difficult to obtain food of mediocre quality in Italy, but regrettably the breakfast restaurant manager has succeeded in this tough endeavor. The coffee is terrible, the "orange juice" is some sort of chemical concoction, the cream filling in some of the "cornetti" might have been ear wax in a previous incarnation.... I would not mind paying an extra 10 euros for a good breakfast. Fortunately, the cafe across the street from the hotel (at the corner of via nomentana) sells excellent cornetti and fresh-pressed OJ. Overall an excellent value. We always stay here when we travel to Rome.

It's nice hotel, it is located 20-30 minutes by bus from a Venezia Palazzo (bus number 60) and bus number 90 to Termini Stataion. There is a train station Roma-Nomentana near the hotel (exit rigth side from the station, turn rigth, after that turn left at the crossroads with a traffic lights) and it's very convenient to come from the Airport Fiumicino(5 Euro). Although there is conditioner it doesn't work (they said it's such a season...) and it was cold at nigth and was no blanket (I asked for it, but recieved a blanket just after 3 days, and we were there for 4 nights). Good breakfast - tosts, buns, gems, chease, cereals, yogurts. They not always emty a trash, but they cleaned rooms every day. Room - double standard was not big, but for a coupl it's enough. We returned evry day at the evening only to sleep there. There was a nice man at the reception, and not so nice woman. Basically it's nice hotel, with a convenient location, with good breakfast. If I'll come to Rome next time, I think I'll stay there one more time. Enjoy your trip!

Dieses Hotel war wirklich gut und entsprach dem Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und dies waren keine tpyischen Willkommensfloskeln. Die Rezeptionsangestellten waren immer und freundlich und gaben stets Auskunft. Unser Zimmer waren sauber, nur die Toillette lief unentwegt vor sich hin, auch nachdem ich an der Rezeption Bescheid gegeben hatte. Leider hatte ich keinen Schraubendreher dabei, dann hätte ich es eingestellt! Mit dem Fahrstuhl konnte man zum Frühstück in den 7. Stock fahren und dort bei einem leckeren Kaffee und süßem Gebäck und Brötchen, eine super Aussicht genießen, natürlich nur wenn es draußen gedeckt ist. Zur Bushaltestelle, Richtung Piazza de Venezia fährt der Bus mit der Nummer 60, vorher natürlich am Kiosk oder Tabakladen ein Ticket für ein Euro kaufen und los gehts. Zum Essen sind wir in Trastevere, nie haben wir mehr als 30 Euro für ein üppiges Mahl mit Rotwein und Wasser bezahlt. Die Einkaufszone bietet sich zum Essengehen auch an. Viel Spaß in Rom Gerd und Simone

This is a nice Hotel and the bus service to the city center is good. We took an evening tour and dinner from the Hotel but after the dinner was over the tour company wouldn't return us to the Hotel because it was to far out and we had to take a cab (Note that they picked us up though). The Resturant accross the street is mediocre at best. I'd recommend eating somewhere before you return to the Hotel. The Hotel is quite far from the airport, however, they arrange for a driver to pick us up and drop us at the airport for about 47 Euro.

Ein sehr gut geführtes Hotel mit freundlichem und fachkundigem Personal. Die Lage, etwas ausserhalb, hat uns nicht gestört, die Busse fahren dicht zum Termini und der 60er ist ein richtiger Sightseing-Bus. Zwei hervorragande Wirtschaften in der Nähe ( da Palazzo 2 um die Ecke und La Piazetta in bisschen weiter die Via Nomentana runter)aber nicht unbedingt die gegenüber. Der Dachgarten fürs Frühstück ein Traum! Warum kann man da nicht auch am Abend sitzen? Wenn was zu bemängeln war, dann die Klimaanlage, die nicht kühlte und die Nächte laut werden liess bei offenem Fenster durch den nie endenden Strassenverkehr. Aber keine Frage, beim nächsten Rom-Besuch buchen wir wieder CarloMagno. Sehr, sehr preiswert. Jens Lars, Stockholm

Overall the hotel is a good hotel, so long as you don't mind the 20-30 minute bus ride to the center of Rome. Nothing to see around the hotel. We wanted to stay an extra night but they would not give us the same rate we got on the internet. Instead of the 70 Euro per night rate, they would only give us a 115 Euro per night rate, which I thought was ridiculous being that we already stayed there three nights for that rate and it would be the same room.

It’s an excellent hotel of value for money. It was a bit difficult to find the hotel at the beginning as bus drivers do not seem to know where the via Val d'Aosta stop is. In fact, the bus stop (90,36,84) is very close to the hotel and it takes only 15-20 minute by bus to the city center. We stayed there for 5 nights with clean room and fresh towers everyday. Staff Louis and Massimo are very friendly and competent.

For the price, it's a very great hotel, very clean and comfortable. There is only two drawbacks : 1. the hotel is too far from the citycenter. In fact, you are in the suburb and except a very good restaurant just in front of the hotel, there is nothing to visit in the neighborhood. But, of course, the hotels in the citycenter cost at least the double. 2. the breakfast is very very very poor, no fruits, "chemical croissants", "chemical orangejuice",... This is really the worst point of the hotel. After three days, you feel like having a real breakfast somewhere else. Even, for the price, they could improve it a little bit.

The location of the hotel is not central, but there are several bus lines close to the hotel. It takes 15-20 minutes to arrive in Termini train station or in the center. The provided room was very very smal and have not had a minibar. The room was connected to the inner courtyard and had a little balcony. The noise level was ok, but you can hear every noise from the corridor infront of your room. The breakfast was acceptable, but for sure not comparable with a german breakfast. Overall it was a nice residence for our time in Rom.
