First two nights we were put on 4th floor when hotel staff knew the elevator was not working but they stated it should be fixed that same evening. The room was small but the worst was the bathroom with a shower stall that a small person could barely move around in! We asked to be put in a lower floor when by 3rd day the elevator was still not fixed. Front desk staff did the bare minimum at their job, especially at check- out, the nifght clerk was anything but friendly! The only good thing I have to say is the hotel was located within walking distance of major attractions in Roma.

Even though I cancelled a booking and had another existing booking with a different date, i was charged a night stay. I had indicated on arrival my concern and they said it was fine. This had to be followed up with proof of the charged amount. Staff were very helpful with the issue. Hotel is well centered in Rome.

This is our second stay in Rome, for the last two years :) We are satisfied with this hotel!!! Close to Fontana di Trevi, and then near to the most popular destinations in Rome. We lived in a room on the other side of the reseption. The breakfast was simple, but we didn't expect a hotelbreakfast a'la Norway. If we go to Rome one more time, we would love to stay here :)!

Breakfast lots of very cheap bread cheese and meets. Men working in hotel were extreamly friendly, the woman there were extreamly un friendly, a little rude even. hotel location was very good, no garden though or outside space and no bar or coffee facility

De Petris is a good hub hotel for walkers,metro users and bus users. Connections all within two blocks. Pharmacy, bancomat(atm), and laundromat/internet cafe within 5 minute walk. De Petris is a distributed hotel. That is rooms are located on various floors through various doors shared with other hotels in the same building. This ultimately means you can be very far from the internet WiFi routers in many of the rooms. There are internet sweet spots in the lobby and the garden breakfast area which you can use throughout the day. They definitely need an upgrade as the other hotels in the building have superior signal strength throughout. The water was hot, the air conditioning cold what more could a Canadian want. Luiggi speaks the best english and therefore gives the best advice on where and what to eat. Ciao Luiggi!

We had two different triple rooms at De Petris. Our first room was in the older section of the hotel on the 4th floor and required the use of the small lift. The room was a bit dated and the carpet was old but the air conditioning was excellent. After we came back from a short stay in Florence, we were given a room in the new section. The room was smaller but much cleaner and more modern. The staff was great (especially Emanuela)and the location was central and convenient to all.

This was my third stay at this hotel. the first time we had a splendid room, the second time we had a nice room, this time we had a smaller room, especially as far as the bathroom is concerned. So, we were a bit disappointed. This being said, the hotel offers very good facilities, is very well run and very clean. last time we found the breakfast room too small, this has been enlarged, resolving the congestion problem. Above all, the location is outstanding in the centre of Rome and the price is quite reasonable for that location. So, even if a bit disappointed this time, I would probably return there.

The location was superb! Walking distance to everything, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Borghese Gallery, Pantheon....EVERYTHING. The front desk staff left very little to desire for. Simply put, they were not nice and every time we needed something (code for internet, computer use, directions) they acted like we were bothering them. The rooms were not the largest but they were ok, the bathrooms were TINY and the shower even smaller. Standard rooms are definetely NOT large enough for a couple and a child. The carpets in the rooms were filthy, bring slippers! The breakfast was good and the wait staff were very nice and helpful. Overall, I rate this hotel 6.5 out of 10.

For the past 7 years I've traveled to Italy twice a year, flying into Rome and staying anywhere from a few weeks to a few nights. I look for the best quality room at the best price in the best location. Generally rooms in this price range are dissappointing. But, Hotel De Petris Is A Find! This year I booked 2 single rooms. One for myself and my travel companion. When we arrived we were upgraded to double rooms for the single price. The rooms were totally restructured with all new finishes and furnishings. The airconditioning was the best of our entire trip, king sized bed most comfortable, rooms had large windows for light yet were quiet for sleeping. There was a flat screen tv in the bedroom and my room had an additional flatscreen in the bathroom. De Petris even allows access to the lobby's computer with internet free for up to 15 min. Jump on the opportunity to stay at Hotel De Petris while it's relatively new and unknown. It's very difficult to find affordable quality and location in this area of Rome. The hotel lobby is not posh or large but it is nice and the staff helpful. Bernini Fountain, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navonna, Spanish Steps and Pantheon all a short walk. It is possible to walk to the train station depending on your stamina and the amount of baggage you bring. Taxi recommended for us older folk. Do not miss La Sacristia Pizzeria Restaurant near the Pantheon (closed Tuesday's). It's not a touristic rip off. The kitchen is clean and it's the best Cucina de Mama food in the area. The locals eat there And there is no cover charge added to the bill. Also good but pricier is Anthony's across from Hotel Pantheon and Nino's near Spanish Steps. Buon Vacanza!

Clientele: Tourists / visitors to see and study Rome and the different old buildings. Our first time at De Petris. The hotel needs a small bar serving coffee, drinks, snacs and perhaps a sandwich in the evening from 18.00 hour to 23.00 or 24.00 I think a "nightcup" would be nice for guests returning from their dinner outside the hotel.

This was our first visit to Rome and the hotel was ideal for seeing the city on foot as all sights were within walking distance. Thrilled with small sitting room adjoining bedroom. Bathroom clean and bright but shower cubicle was rather cramped. We had read that the hot water ran out in the mornings but it didn't for us! Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and good coffee. The quaint little lift mentioned in previous reviews has been joined by a new sleek glass state of the art lift with lots of room. Staff efficient if a little punctilious. Housekeeping were confused by our return for a siesta in temperatures of 32 degrees! A great little convenient place to be based.

Hotel De petris was ideally situated. All of the major sights and attractions were all within walking distance and the hotel was in the middle of all of them. Our room was fabulous too! We think we were upgraded yet unsure why. We were given a room which has a split level, a sitting room above the bedroom. All very modern with 3 plasma t.v's in it no less. Bathroom was equally as good (t.v also)very modern and clean. Staff friendly/helpful yet not too gushy which I prefer, not false. Breakfast was plentiful and saw us right through til dinner which is astounding considering we covered about 16 miles on foot in a day. Only thing I would say is that breakfast room could do with updating a little but nothing that would stop us from returning. Our first visit to Rome and we really dropped on here I feel. Spanish steps, Trevi fountain and Pantheon are litterally on the doorstep. Can also recommend a lovely little restaurant on route to the Trevi Fountain from hotel called 'Taberna', nothing overated, just good pasta/pizza/value and friendly staff. House Red not bad either. If ever returning to Rome will have no hesitation to stay at the same hotel.

We stayed with my mum in this hotel for 7 days. As a general rule in Italy, the lobby was impressive, but the room was not. Our beds had no proper springers and we had to wait for 5 minutes before getting warm water in the shower. It is very centrally located which was the main point for us. Very nice breakfast with an efficient staff. I would advise this hotel to people that are not too fussy when it comes to comfort and noise. For 90 Euros per night that was "OK", for 120 (non-reduced price) it would have been overpriced.

My wife and I were on a 3 week trip to Italy. Our last stop was Rome. We thought Hotel De Petris was a great location for our needs. The room we had was big, but not what we expected! The room had just been remodeled, but not completed. There was a small mirror in the bathroom, very little lighting, and no place to hang up our towels. The remodel was far too modern for Rome!! The morning we were leaving, there was no cold water!! Usually there's no hot water!!

Estuvimos una semana en el Hotel De Petris, la acogida no fue muy buena por los recepcionistas del hotel, nunca saludaban y siempre nos pedian la llave del hotel cuando saliamos y de malas maneras. Un día llegamos de cenar fuera y nos dejaron una media hora en la calle porque no había nadie y estaba cerrado con llave. El ascensor era diminuto, cabían solo dos personas y tenias que hacer malabarismos para entrar y salir, y con las maletas aun era peor. El desayuno era escaso aunque no estaba mal, recomiendo el zumo de naranja rosa. En cuanto a la limpieza a veces eran las 17:00 h y no estaban hechas las habitaciones. En definitiva la habitación estaba bien y el lugar centrico, pero no es un hotel acogedor. Si volvemos a Roma no repetiremos.

This was our 1st time in Rome and at the beginning ,the hotel seemed ample except for the elevator which is a hazard and a joke. It would not be wide enough for a wheelchair much less a family with luggage. We should have known it was going to be a problem when on our first day, we called the front desk to alert them that our tv had no channels and they told us we had to pull out the tv and hook up the cable ourselves. The bathroom was fine if limited for counter space. The shower was hot with good pressure but the door was some odd configuration that resulted in floods all over the bathroom floor. The hotel staff was not knowledgeable at all. One lady directed us to the bus stop and told us the # of the bus but she never said what direction to travel in and could not tell us when it left or provide us with any other info at all. It got worse with each conversation or request that we had with the staff. We asked for an iron 4x and never received one. We needed assistance in making a call to America and after several attempts finally told the front desk that there was a problem with the phone. They never mentioned that a problem with the phone would prevent our 5:45am wake up call not to happen. We were 45 minutes late for the airport and received no assistance from the overnight attendant at all with regards to making up for lost time. He did not even offer an apology for the error. Instead, he yelled back at me and told me it was my fault for not telling them earlier that there was a problem with the phone. All in all, the hotel was not even worth the money we paid. If I were you, I would choose another hotel.

On the positive side, the bed was excellent, the coffee tremendous, and the location unbeatable. The room was clean, the housekeeping staff do a great job. With one exception the staff were great, but one surly, sulky, rude young woman on reception soured the experience. I've given a fairly low grade for quietness, and I wouldn't expect it any other way in this great location - at least as far as street noise goes. But one night we had to endure a spectacularly loud and abusive North American brawl in a room on our floor. It continued unabated until about 4am. I think even the thickest walls wouldn't have been able to deal with that, so it's a bit difficult to judge room quietness in those conditions. On the negative side. Size matters. We stayed for 5 days and felt pretty claustrophobic by day 3. The room was tiny, just enough room to skirt around the very comfortable bed.The shower was miniscule. One had to jump in, get wet, jump out to lather up, then jump back in again to rinse. The only space smaller than this was the elevator, but that was just funny, not really a negative unless you want to transport 2 suitcases. Which is something you are likely to do in a hotel, so not terribly amusing after all. It's Rome, Rome's expensive, you get what you pay for blah blah.

The hotel was very neat. The breakfast was the best of our 4 hotels. The room was the smallest, but not too small. Very quiet and clean room. The location was awesome. We accidently bumped into Trevi fountain on a quick 5 minute walk after we checked in!

I was pleased with the room but the access was difficult through the lift, which was too small and difficult to get in and out of. Overall the stay was fair. I did not find the desk staff very helpful, although it appeared they were trying. Especially upsetting was that we wanted to postpone our visit by one day, still wanting to stay the two days. We found the hotel unwilling to work with our schedule, even though we would have stayed the agreed-upon number of nights. I understand that we agreed to make any changes before Sunday -- however that's a long time before we wanted the room and we agreed because we didn't feel we had a choice. We hoped that your staff would agree to accommodate our changes, but they refused to do so or even discuss it.

Did not stay. first directions were not adequate. then room was dark, musky smelling and damp. lost first night's rate because the room offered us and overall hotel was below par for the level hotel listed. Would not recommend.. though the young lady checking us in was very cordial.

The Hotel De Petris was a great hotel with very nice staff and a very good location. The rooms were spacious and clean and the hotel staff were helpful and very nice. We were delayed on our trip and arrived one day late but calling ahead to let the hotel know of our delay was not problem. For the price, this hotel was excellent.

We are very satisfied and would choose De Petris again . One or two restrictions though : the lift is extremely small!! and the room a bit dark. Otherwise we recommend to reserve room 202!

My stay at the Hotel De Petris was overall extremely sastifactory. I had a room on the 4th floor with a terrace/balcony. In April, the temperature was cool, so no need for the AC. We slept with the windows open, and there was NO noise whatsoever. Amazing, considering the hotel is 3 minutes away from Trevi Fountain. Via Rasella is simply one of the quietest streets in the heart of Rome. The only thing heard at night were the church bells of Rome sounding every 15 minutes. Lovely feeling. You get a sense of the old Rome, before all of the auto's. The buffet style breakfast was excellent as well. Many times it seemed to be the best meal of the day. Our room had 2 twin beds, and each one was like new. The room price (190 Euro) seemed a little steep by USA standards, but worth it for the location. Within literally a 2 minute walk, you are at the Barbarini Metro station. There is a really a nice Internet Cafe at the Barbarini Square. I would definitely stay here again.

Generally speaking, hotels in Rome have special connections to unauthorithzed taxi company:that makes us often very disagreeable feelings.

Location very good. The pictures (rooms) on the internet looked much better. The room was very small an old - we were on the 4th floor. I think the rooms on the lower floors are much better.

We booked on thursday afternoon and arrived on friday. The De Petris was just perfect for a short-trip. Central located, clean and a very friendly staff. I would recommend it. Due to the thin walls we woke some of the other guests up when came home at 3 a.m.

I would definitely recommend the De Petris. Our room was clean, comfortable and relatively spacious. It was not cheap, but was certainly reasonable by Rome standards. The location was good in terms of proximity to major sights (especially the Trevi Fountain) - the road the hotel is on is not particularly attractive but we never felt unsafe walking back at night. The only complaint I would have was that most of the staff weren't especially friendly and on arrival noone showed us the lounge (which we only discovered when we checked out!) or the breakfast room. On the whole a good place to stay.
