Staff was very competent and nice. The noise in the backyard in the morning was sometimes a lot when the surrounding restaurants disposed their used glass bottles whith a crash into the garbage bins. Otherwise it was a fantastic hotel. the 10 steps mentioned to walk to reception must have been by USA citizen, as they usually always complain about walking. Less hamburgers would help.

The hotel was very conveniently located, close to the Terminal. The rooms were clean and had all the facilities necessary. This is not a luxury hotel, but it has everything you need for a short stay. The European breakfast was good with choices of breads/pastries/cereals etc. The neighborhood is excellent with several government offices just across the street and there are plenty of restaurants/pharmacy/grocery store located practically outside the front door. Fani and Sistina were excellent hosts and helped us with information and services in the hotel and should be commended. I would stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

There are no complaints about the cleanliness of the rooms which is more than correct. But if you need to sleep a few hours at night to rest from the fatigue of the day, forget this hotel. A busy street, a bar across the street and a intense nightlife every night are the rule, including the weekend. Request a room overlooking the courtyard or go your way.

An excellent hotel for a one night stop over in Rome. Clean, comfortable, quiet and conveniently situated. A five minute walk from the station. Good breakfast included in the price. I was in room 222 which was fine as a single but would be a bit cramped as a double. However in my experience this is normal for hotels in this price range in Rome. The bathroom was minute but adequate and, most importantly, the water pressure and temperature in the shower was excellent. This room has a small balcony opening on to the central courtyard. (On the second floor so no security worries) I had stayed in a twin room some years ago (230 or 232 from memory) and found that also to be good. The staff are friendly and helpful. I'd definately go back there again.

Nice hotel, about 10 mins on foot from Termini station. Fairly easy to find. My room was in a corner on the 3rd floor with a window that opened in a courtyard of buildings, so was very quiet. Even got the wi-fi signal in my room, a bit weak though workable. The front staff are friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast is great for the price. Lots of croissants and donuts, juices, tea & coffee, cheese and yogurt etc. Great value for money. Would stay again.

I was there for a business trip, so I really appreciated the quietness of the room, even if all I could look at was a wall of an internal yard. Hotel is close to the Termini station and this made my connections very easy. Wi-Fi works only close to the reception desk/bar, so do not complain for this, you have been warned! Personnel is very very kind and cooperative, and speaks a good English. Breakfast is basic.

Fourth time in Rome, first time at Continentale, just one night. Great for early morning train to FCO as this is so close to Roma Termini. Extra early breakfast is very convenient. Elevator is confusing at first. Take a room off the street if you want quiet. Lots of restaurants nearby. If you like to walk it is walkable to the Borghese Gardens. Can be hard to find w/o a very detailed map. A very basic, no frills hotel with big, thick, white towels.

This is a great hotel for the price. The location is excellent. Close to the rail station. This is also good due that many of the tours leave from here and is the central crossing point for the subway. Plenty of good restraunts to choose from as well. Internet cafe is two blocks away so lugging around your computer is not necessary. The only complaint was one of the hotel clerks. He was extremely rude and unpleasant...I almost allowed him to ruin part of my trip as I had to deal with him more than the other great clerks! The shower was strange as it was just a curtain in the bath. The shower was an experience and still worth the cost of the hotel. If going to be in Rome for 2+ days...get the Rome City Pass. Worth the value and much easier to get into the Colosseum. There is a visitors office two blocks over if you walk strainght down from train station that can provide much help and assistance.

This hotel really was everything it promised to be. My wife and I stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon and although it was not as romantic as the small hotels we reserved for Florence and Venice, let’s are honest – Rome is more metro than romantic and this hotel reflects the more hurried and practical nature of Rome. We had no problems finding the hotel, as it is four blocks or so from the train station. Please keep this in mind as even the official cabs are more than happy to charge you 25 to 30 euro for the short ride to hotels and hostels. We were a late check in from Florence and although our check in and arrival wasn’t as smooth as silk, our 11 pm check in when easy enough for a small hotel. After dropping our packs we went to a quaint place down the street where a server named Memo took great care of us. The building locks the front door around midnight. This threw us a bit, as it was not mentioned. Additionally, the 2nd floor entry lobby closes at midnight as well. No worries as the 3rd floor are open, but no one mentioned this to us and it became a bit of an adventure. There is no in room fridge – so if that is part of your savings plan, it may be a deciding factor. The lift is old school and worth writing home about. We did have a balcony that looked over the street and the hostel (Yellow – great breakfast). Not sure if that’s common. We would definitely recommend this hotel for younger, open-minded travelers that feel American hotels are plastic and ho-hum.

As described the hotel offers excellent Price/quality ration. The rooms are absolutely clean, the bathromms are not very spaceous but with a bit of good will its OK. I had a single room with a balcony to the yard of the house, very Italian with loundries hanging on ropes located between different balconies. The room was very quiet although just located 5 walking minutes from Termini station. Thats the ideal starting point for excursions. I recommend to buy a "Roma Pass" (acvailable inside the station) which includes 3 days free use of the Metro plus the first 2 antique sites free. There are small good restaurants around. I relly enjoyed the stay at that hotel, also breakfast was OK, the machine delivers an excellent coffe with milk. What do you need more?

Hotel staff were very kind, courteous, and helpful. They had good and appropriate responses for all of our questions. The room, however, was a bit dingy looking at first glance - particularly the curtains, which were very old and appeared to be dirty (grey) - looking. Our first five minutes in the room were spent deliberating whether or not to cancel our reservations and find better lodgings. However, overall, the room proved to be acceptably clean, even the curtains, which we believe were only very old. The most negative feature was the street noise, mostly from people drinking and shouting (late at night) from the bar across the street.

A nice small hotel that appears a little bit old-fashioned. It was our first stay and we liked it very much. The "Continentale" provides a very suitable accomodation for tourists who want to discover Rome whereas for people on a business trip the facilities for doing some "homeworks" might be not fully sufficient.

First, the Contintale is convenient to Termini station and is located on the "good side" of the area. (I don't recommend the west side of Termini Station). On the way to the hotel there's internet and food cafes and when you get to the Contintale the staff is friendly, attentive, eager to please and I was made to feel like one of the family. I had a small but nice room and enjoyed the rooftop views with all the bird chirps and church bells Roma has to offer. After their good breakfast it's easy to get a bus, the metro or simply go on foot to many sights. A nearby cafe (there are several) serves "American breakfasts" (that I avoided) for pancake and egg addicts, and found the Italian breakfast at Continentale sufficient, tasty and enough to keep me going for most of the day. My travels took me out of Rome and I was to finish up the Italian portion of my trip at another hotel on Via Cavour, but was shocked at the neighborhood and at the building and asked Continentale if they had a room available for my last night. Even with short notice they made sure I got a great room at a terrific price. I've recommended the Continentale to my friends in Paris and certainly it's the first place I'll go to when I return to Roma.

I was delighted with the room and facilities, especially considering the price. Although a single traveller, I wasn't relegated to the hell of a tiny single room but was given a twin bedded room with ensuite. The location of the hotel was good - close to Metro & bus and the centre of town was easily walkable, as were the Borghese gardens. The window of my room faced into an interior courtyard & the only noise was during the day, when nearby building work was carried out. The room was spacious & clean, and although the ensuite was slightly cramped, the shower was excellent & there was hot water available at any time. There are no real public facilities - but who needs them? This is Rome and there are cafes, trattorie and restaurants within yards of the hotel. If you expect luxury facilities then this hotel is not for you, but it is a good 2-star facility and I will be recommending it to friends and hope to stay here again.

One of the main reasons for picking this hotel as well as the cheap price was the fact that they had internet connections in the rooms (as said on their web page), i packed less clothes in my hand luggage, so i could fit my laptop in there, only to find that there was no internet connection in the hotel, i was told to use the internet cafe down the road....not pleased, would have paid more for internet, and will be checking with my next hotel before booking and checking details on the web page are correct next time...

The room which i stayed in was clean, tidy and comfortable, if a little small, however for the price which we paid, it was good value, and is what i expected really. The hotel is really well located, with some nice restaurants nearby, and londis style stores to get snacks from. The shower in our room was the only major negative. Due to the cramped nature of the room, the shower was tiny, and had almost been cut in half, in that it was triangle in shape, and barely fit a medium sized person. Coupled with this, the shower water never seemed hot whatever time you had a shower, or however long you ran the water for. The hotel stay in general was very good. Staff were polite and friendly, and the hotel was always very clean. I would say it is a great value for money hotel for young couples who don't really want to go spending too much on accomodation, whilst still staying somewhere which is quite nice.

The Continentale was convenient to the Rome Termini and was sufficient for a short stay (2 or 3 days). However, the noise from adjacent hostel and traffic was very annoying and made it hard to sleep. I had requested a quiet room (based upon other comments) prior to my trip and the hotel confirmed via email, a "courtyard" room. Nevertheless, when checking in, I was given a street room -- somewhat dissappointing. Additionally, the bathrooms are very, very small. Consequently, I could only recommend this hotel for a short stay and a tight budget.

Hôtel bien situé par rapport aux transports en commun - quartier calme - petit déjeuner copieux et bon acceuil - très propre - Un bémol : la qualité de la chambre : étroite - armoire penderie inutilisable sans échelle - pas de meuble porte bagages - salle de bains exigüe et confort restreint . Télévision et air conditionné disponibles mais avec caution - non mentionnée dans la présentation de l'hôtel

The hotel was a lower quality than anticpated. The rooms were very sparse and not very inviting. Also, it seems the hotel prefers not to accept credit cards even though they claim they do. We checked into the hotel twice and on both occasions were told the credit card machine was defective and were encouraged to pay in cash with a 5% discount. I would not stay here again.

Es wäre wünschenswert, dass ein besserer Zusammenhang zwischen den Bildern im Internet und der Realität im Hotel besteht. Wir waren zwar mit den Leistungen des Hotels insgesamt noch zufrieden, der Zustand und die Ausstattung der Zimmer standen jedoch in keinerlei Verbindung zu den Bildern im Internet. Im Internet war alles neu und sauber, tatsächlich war jedoch die Einrichtung (Betten, Schrank, Vorhänge) sehr stark verschlissen und die Vorhänge waren ausgesprochen schmutzig. Ansonsten war jedoch das Hotel für südeuropäische Verhältnisse recht sauber und das Personal sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

"Continentale" is the first hotel I check to see if it is available whenever I visit Rome. And this was my 4th time.

Wir haben gefunden, was wir suchten: Ein preiswertes Hotel in zentraler Lage. Dass es fuer den Preis kein Luxushotel sein konnte, war klar. Angenehm ueberrascht hat uns die Professionalitaet der Mitarbeiter.

There really weren't any surprises here. We've stayed in 2 star hotels in Paris before, so we expected pretty much the same kind of accomodations in Rome. The old saying "you get what you pay for" rings true here. We paid 60 Eu per night here, which amounted to $80. For this price we got a TINY room (by US standards but on par with Paris), clean although it needed a paint job. The bathroom was clean and functional, however the shower stall was so incredibly small (and flimsy) that if you had the misfortune of dropping the soap, there was almost no room whatsover to bend over and pick it up! You had to sort of balance yourself and lower your body with your knees to retrieve the soap. Another annoyance: there was no soap dish in the shower hence nowhere to leave the soap after you lather up! Thankfully, there was plenty of hot water and the handheld shower head was a Godsend since there was no room to move about in the shower. The beds were clean and of cheap quality, and there were NO mattress covers under the sheets, although I have to admit that I did sleep well in them anyway. The common areas were well kept although to me they always smelled of cigarette smoke. Continental breakfast buffet was included in the price. Pickin's were kind of slim but we still enjoyed it. The breakfast area is behind the reception desk. There are 2 small rooms, clean and comfortable. They basically had bread rolls, which were hollow and baked to a crunch, and you see them all over Rome. There was plenty of butter and jam and honey, and even some cornflakes and milk. They have a cute coffee machine that dispensed espresso, capuccino, caffe macchiato, hot water or milk, or "weak coffee" for American tastes. The macchiato was pretty good. The hotel is really just 4 blocks or so from the Termini, an easy and safe walk. There are several restaurants across the street and down the block. We didn't eat at them, but it's hard to find bad food in Rome. If you're on a t

Nice low-bud hotell with happy employees. Maybe not the nicest surroundings - so you need to take great walks to reach the nicest places in the city.

We found the Continentale A little disappointing, especially the breakfast which was a symbolic gesture, no one checked if the meagre buffet had been replenished drinks were an insult as far as coffee in Italy goes, overall the B & B should have been B only (for Bed).

Overall the hotel was adequate. It was older and more run down than the photo's and description would indicate and we felt it was a little overpriced for what it offered. It did not offer a handsfree shower and a number of the features, such as air conditioning did not work. I would not recommend it as a place to stay or stay there again, but the staff were pleasant and the hotel was well located.

The hotel was in a good central position for touring and close to all ammenaties. The rooms were clean and in good order. The windows are not double glazed and their is quite a lot of traffic and street noise through to about 02:00 hrs. The room we stayed was on the front and the rooms towards the back of the hotel may be quieter. Breakfast service was good, clean and reasonably well presented, although it is a very limited continental style menu. Their are restraunts close by should you want a full English type breakfast/ Overall I would recommend this hotel as a reasonable cost hotel near to all of Rome's attractions.
