Nice hotel. Good location. Staff can not speak English except one person. rooms are clean but small. I found my room opened one time but nothing was missing, and the staff apologized for that behaviour from the room service team. They are helpful regarding advice for sightseeings. Breakfast is just caffee and croissant, but seems typical to all italian hotels.

We are finally back and settled home. I was having a 2nd thought if I am to give you my review but I think it's just fair for everyone who relied on review (guilty) before making reservations. Here we go. I booked this hotel over the phone because I want to be assured on small details required to accommodate me and my family. ELEVATOR/LIFT -1st - my husband had 3 back surgeries and it is difficult for him to get up and down on stairs. NO LIFT. I felt sooo bad for my husband. A/C- being a hot blooded person who gets hot flashes especially at night. I was assured by customer service, the amenities listed online and bought phone card and called many times to Rome (since no one could speak English but Marco) and was assured that there is AC. NO A/C. After 1st night they gave me an electric fan because I slept with my window open. Apparently not safe to leave window unlocked overnight. SAFETY - I asked how safe is the place. It was a nightmare. All night you could see and  hear drunk people from below your window, graffiti all over the street. Garbage all around you. It was horrifying. My daughter e-mailer her friend and wishes to be home because she is scared to be in this "cursed hotel". We walked to far from termini station and it was terrible. Scary as %#%^*%#}>. The only thing I like from this experience is having to eat at Franks seafood restaurant just beside our room. The housemaid was yelling at my daughter because my daughter left the towel on the floor (to be wash), apparently, towels are changed only after 2 days. The staff talks in their language (a lot ) since they do not know English. You would think they will try to learn other language than Italian because of the nature of their business. All in all I wish I could do it again for my family and this time I will not just rely on reviews. Very much disappointed!!

The staff was very helpful, arranged transportion from the airport and recommended great local restaurants. The rooms were a good size and clean. The hotel was in good position: it was easy to make trips around the city, very close to the train station with access both airports, and the cross over of the two metro lines. We will surely come back!

This hotel was clean, butvery close to the train station and a good distance from anything in the city you would like to see. At night, I didnt feel very safe making the walk back to the hotel, although the directly surrounding area seemed safe. The night manager spoke no english, but was very friendly. Breakfast in the morning was quite lovely, and was served in the park across the street. Very clean and quite spacious compared to our other Italian hotels, but I would recommend staying in a more centrally located area.

We stayed at Hotel Felice because of the price, but especially if you are traveling in the summer I highly recommend you look somewhere else. *Location* Although on a map the hotel looks close to the city center, it is not. So arriving to the hotel via train, bus, or taxi is very costly. By taxi it is about 50-60 euros. By train and then bus it's about 15euro per person. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk away from Termini Station which a large bus/train/metro station from where you can go nearly everywhere in Rome. However, that 15 minute walk is quite unpleasant, especially at night. The streets are dirty and graffiti decorates every square foot of wall. While we stayed at the hotel (5 days) a car in front of the hotel was broken into. There are no places of interest at a walking distance from the hotel. Taking metro or bus everyday is necessary to see the sights. *Room* The rooms are quite small (like most in Europe) and only some have bathrooms included. We stayed in one that did. The towels are not changed every day, which is a small detail, but after 3 days it was unpleasant to have old towels. The television was not working and the staff was not helpful in fixing it. **There is no air conditioning*** which is probably my greatest complaint. In Rome, most tourists, like us, go to walk to the ancient sites and see the many things that make Rome famous, which means walking - a lot. So when you get back exhausted, hot, and tired, the last thing you want is your hotel room to be humid, hot, and cramped. The room was hotter than the outside at times, and the only way to try to cool it down was to open the windows and turn on the tiny table fan that was provided. It was unbearable to sleep and the loud street noise was not helpful. On our last night there the rusty water pipes leaked and our bathroom flooded and eventually got the entire room wet. The only person working at the desk begrudgingly came to help us and finally made us clean it

We had an awful time with a truly vile room that bore no relationship either to the pictures I'd seen on the web or even to the hotel room that I visited in Rome a day before we were due to stay there. It was cramped and airless and extremely noisy - fair enough if you are in Italy and I am not a fussy traveller generally, but worst of all it was impossible to make the room dark because of ambient lighting outside the hotel. Staff were very rude and unfriendly and we ended up paying for a night we didn't use and running away to the Hotel Laurencia down the street which was much better.

We stayed here for four nights when we first arrived in Italy and for one night before we left. Our first room was over the pizza shop with a shared bathroom down the hall. Some street noise, earplugs helpful to light sleepers, but the residential area is relatively quiet. Our final room had an en suite bath and was larger and in the quieter corner. We enjoyed having breakfast included. Staff was very friendly and helpful (they kept a pair of glasses that we had left behind until we returned!), not all spoke much English. Fifteen minute walk from Termini or Linea B Campo di Praetoria metro stops. We enjoyed not being in the main tourist spot in Rome, but having easy access to the metro.

Regarding the competence of the staff: They were all very helpful. Regarding the cleanliness of the room: The room itself was clean, however before the second night, ants invaded the room. Regarding location as indicated on map: It is true that the hotel is on Via Tiburtina, however, the direction by car that "if we turn left on via dei Marrucini, and we will cross Via Tiburtina, where the hotel lies at number 30", is a bit vague and misleading. The place where via dei Marrucini goes into Via Tiburtina is at the numbers of 160, the street begins at the City Wall, and it is a one-way, you can't drive there on Via Tiburtina - needs some extra navigation. Just wanted to inform you about this. Regarding the surroundings: There is an excellent gelateria close, the Red Ice :)

We stayed here in 2005 and had lots of fun. We kind of got lost trying to find the place because we walked there from the train station. Recommendation for those on a budget - get some wine and cheese at the market and sit on the landing outside that links the two levels of rooms. You'll be sure to meet other out-of-towners with a passion for travel.

This was our first time in Rome - family of 5. Rome is expensive, but we wanted to be somewhere that didn't take all our fun money away. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the main train/bus/metro station, the neighborhood is typical if big city and train stations. We were not worried much about our saftey, course with kids between 8 & 3 we were not out later than 10. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. The guy on at night does not speak English, which was a hinderance when we thought we were getting a ride from the airport at 10pm - make sure you call them personally and check instead of doing it threw Venere.com!!! There is a cafe and park across the street, great to watch locals. Cafe is where you eat your pastry breakfast. Didn't fill us up, but helped get us going. Street is noisy, but if you are the type of person who doesn't let things bother you too much you can sleep - our kids had no problem falling asleep after wandering Rome all day! Shower was pretty small, even for Europe, but again, you're only there for a few hours and it's just a unique thing to remember. I have recommended this hotel to friends already - it beats paying E 200 or 300 a night! Staff kept giving candy to my girls. Over all a good place to stay if you don't want to spend a lot on a room.

Although it is stated on their website that this hotel is close to public transport, this is not the case (especially if you're carrying around luggage). It's in a very noisy area and it's really hard to get a good night's sleep. It doesn't have air conditioning and can get very hot. The staff (or at least the ones we met) don't speak a word of English.

It was basically a bed to sleep in. There was no a/c AND no fan, the room was more hot than outside. We would have loved to sleep with the window open, but it was SO LOUD downstairs with the pizzaria and pub across the street, that we had to suffer. Sharing a bathroom with that many guests is difficult, and one of the bathrooms made it impossible to shower in. If you dont mind noise and heat, its a good hotel. :)

We stayed at Hotel Felice last week and found the staff extremely helpful and willing to answer any questions. They have informed to us on the beautiful routes and the better restaurants(“Alfredo” and “Da Franco ar Vicoletto”). We have bought the daily ticket to the reception. If you want a cheap hotel with a friendly helpful staff and if it should be placed near central station/public transportation we can recommend Hotel Felice.

We stayed for four nights to celebrate our fifth anniversity and we both thought that the hotel was great. We had a wonderful private bath, a nice big tv and a free WiFi internet access. The breakfast was okey. The staff was friendly and helpful, they called a taxi for us, etc. The location was perfect, we walked everywhere! It is very close to Fontana di Trevi and the Spanish Steps, only 5-10 minutes walk. But we also walked to the Vatican, Colosseum and Trastevere. So we think that we really got our moneys worth, since it was really reasonable prices for such a great location and nice room (and that is what you are paying for!).

Hotel Felice was about what I expected for the price. The staff was nice, even though they didn't speak English. I stumbled through my survival Italian (which I recommend anyone going to Italy to learn some Italian, it will make life much easeir). The only problem with the hotel is it is on a very busy street and very, very loud. Otherwise, a clean room, and the shared bathroom was clean too.

My advice...stay somewhere else. Rome was our last stop on a month long Italian holiday, the Felice was the most expensive hotel we stayed in, and it was a dump. The rooms look nothing like the photos. We booked a double with a bath. It was dark, small, the bed was like a rock, and very noisy (you will need ear plugs to block out the noise of doors slamming all night). The outside of the building is covered in grafitti and the streets between the Felice and the Termini Station are not very safe at night. On checking out the owners tried to make us pay cash. We booked with a credit card. They claimed their credit card machine was not working and then started complaining about the fees on credit cards. After some heated discussion and the arrival of some other guests their English suddenly improved and a credit card was accepted. This place is the Rome version of Fawlty Towers.

Hotel Felice was much better built, equipped and maintained than we had expected from the reviews, and the staff were more helpful and pleasant, although the noise from the road it fronts on to was loud and annoying, which is not the hotel's fault, but is much more the fault of Italy's poor control of vehicle noise (especially buses) and the predominant noisy and annoying and pointlessly agressive habits of drivers of nearly all vehicles, which leaves a very great deal to be desired.

This was our first time in Rome and we´re satisfied with our experience in this city and with the hotel. Although Hotel Felice is not any extraordinary thing you can get a good hotel service when you demand only the basic services. Arround the hotel are very good places to eat and it´s not far from the subway, train or bus station. We were a little disappointed with the breakfast because it´s not in a Restaurant but in a little cafeteria without enough tables or chairs, and consists only in coffee or tea and sweet bread, any thing else has to be paid extra. Although bread and coffee were very good.

I did not expect Felice to be the best location ever, but overall I was positively surprised. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, even though, with one exception, nobody seems to speak any foreign language. Unfortunately a group from Denmark kept us from sleep for the first two nights. The advantage of Felice is the good access to most attractions of Rome. It is in a walking distance from the Colosseum and the center of Rome, and the central station is abt. 15 min from the hotel. Overall, it was a nice stay, if you don't regard the relation between price and quality. Rome is very expensive, that's what you have to bear in mind.

For Gelati, there is a fantastic place about 2 mins walk. From outside the hotel, cross the street and take the road that goes diagonally left. Turn right at the Irish pub and there is a gelateria that has very generous servings for a good price. Best gelati we had all over Italy.

Estuve en este hotel varias noches durante el mes de julio, y la estancia en general no fue mala, pues no sufrí ningún percance y además estaba muy bien de precio, pero es cierto que podría haber sido mejor, pues le encontré algunos defectos. Para empezar, está situado en una zona bastante alejada del centro, y ni siquera aparece en los mapas, además de ser un barrio un tanto conflictivo por las noches, pues la zona está llena de maleantes. El hotel es bonito, y además cuenta con una gran terraza común muy acogedora para sentarse un rato por las noches a tomar el fresco, pero es cierto que las habitaciones son demasiado pequeñas, y además carecen de aire acondicionado, y durante mi estancia hacía demasiado calor, por lo que había que dormir con las ventanas abiertas, y todas las noches pasaban gran cantidad de motos por la carretera, y dormir se convertía en una tarea muy complicada. En cuanto al desayuno, lo sirven en una terraza muy agradable que hay situada frente al hotel, y consiste en una bebida y una pieza de bollería, no está mal, aunque resulta un poco escaso. En general mi estancia no fue mala, y repetiría sin duda, pues es un hotel bastante barato, aunque sin ningún tipo de lujo, especialmente recomendado para para gente joven sin muchos miedos, aunque insisto en que me paseé por las noches por la zona y, a pesar de ver numerosos vagabundos y maleantes en general, no tuve ningún percance con ninguno.

Realmente, e' necessario dar uma estudada em italiano para se hospedar no Felice (eles nao sabiam nem o que era "bed"). No entanto, a simpatia e vontade de agradar dos funcionarios supera todos os problemas oriundos da comunicacao com os mesmos. E' realmente um bom hotel, principalmente para quem procura um lugar limpo, barato e um pouco afastado do centro de Roma.

He estado en el hotel Felice y a pesar de algunos comentarios leídos aquí me he llevado una grata sorpresa. Mi habitación daba a la calle y a pesar de estar un sábado noche no he tenido tantos ruidos(la ventana cerraba perfectamente), el baño comunitario estaba limpio y disponible siempre que quise utilizarlo y la limpieza de la habitación era buena. El hotel está muy bien comunicado con los autobuses 492 y 71 (que llevan uno hasta el Vaticano y otro hasta el Corso)y está rodeado de muchos restaurantes y pizzerías para cenar después de un cansado día de turismo. Sin dudas, recomendaré este hotel por la buena relación calidad-precio.

The hotel staff were very friendly, location was quite reasonable and the local restaurants, cafe's etc. were cheap and friendly. The only problem we had was the room was very noisy with a lot of street noise coming in, particularly on Saturday night.

One of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in, certainly the worst at this price in Europe. Rock hard mattresses and rude and unhelpful staff when asked if there any other mattresses or rooms available. No carpeting and thin walls so all neighbours could be heard chatting and getting intimate. Terrible stench in the room - partly the result of previous heavy smoking (despite No Smoking signs), partly indeterminate (BO of previous occupant? drains?), partly heavy use of air-freshener by cleaners to try to remove the smell. Venere made things easy but the hotel was dreadful.

I found the room a little bit bramped and there wasn't written all of the information needed clearly. There should be left visible the check-out time, price of mini bar and how to use the television as the television in our room did not work and we could not work out how to run it. Overall the staff were extremely friendly and I was very happy with the services they offered me. The young waitress at breakfast was also extremely friendly and I was very happy with how she helped me. Well done!

The staff were very friendly and helpful, though there were some minor language diffilculties. The area in which the hotel was situated was OK, but getting to that area from the city centre was not the nicest walk imaginable. If not taking a taxi, you had to walk the length of Termini train station, which has a reputation for being a fairly dangerous area. The shower in the en suite was very poor, with a shower curtain which wrapped itself around you as soon as you turned the water on and made it very difficult to wash. I would still recommend the hotel for it's easy-going attitude and the staff's friendliness, but next time I wouldn't get an ensuite room as the communal shower was actually way better than the one in my room.

We found the Hotel staff welcomming, the room spotless and comfortable and the price very reasonable. We opted for a double without bathroom, but you still get a basin and bidet and there are two shower/toilet rooms shared between about 6 rooms so there was never really a queue for the facilities. The hotel is located on quite a busy street which means it's fairly noisy at night (our room looked out over the street and there is a bar next door)but it didn't bother us too much. The train station (which is also the nearest underground station) is a 5 or 10 minute walk away so the location is great to use as a launch pad to other parts of the city.

My girlfreind and I, stayed at Felice for 8 nights. Overall it`s a nice hotel but thre are some things you must bear in mind. The staff will go very far to insure you the best stay possible, but they do not speak much english, so brush up your italian. When you book a room, see to that you get room 1, 2, 3, 4 or 20. those are the rooms situated to the back of the hotel and therefore without much noise. Close the windows over night. If you don`t, you will be the feast for the mosqitos. Breakfast is italian. That means one sweet roll and a cop of coffee, end of story. If you can`t live on that, there is a nice discouter down the road (Via Tirbutina 97)and staight accros from there a supermarket called Pam club. Next to the discounter there is a pizza outled that serves pizza slices and coca cola for euro 2,50 a person. Sights: Take the bus 71. It will take you to Piazza San Silvestro, between Trevi and the Spannish steps. One trip costs an euro. Tickets to be bought in the bar to your left when you come out of the hotel. (Buhdda bar) Enjoy the roof terrace. You can eat drink and have some fun times there, if you remember to keep your voice down late in the evening. The floors 2, 3 and 4 are private residents. If you just have to watch something on Tv, they have a tv room behind the desk. We wathed the italian formula 1 grand prix down there. All in all it`s a nice hotel with a lot of possibilities for the tourist that do not want to spend a fortune if that can be avoided. Would book again.

The hotel was within walking distance from all of the sights rome has to offer. It is about a ten minute walk from 'Termini' the central station from which you can use trains or buses to get around if you'd prefer. The stay was excellent and although some of the hotel staff struggled with English they did their best and we met a happy medium as we ourselves did our best to speak Italian too! I would recommend the hotel Felice to anyone staying in Rome. We stayed in a room with en suite but the facilities for those not en suite looked very clean too.

Albergo dignitoso, camere comode e pulite, personale cortese. Peccato si trovi in una zona di Roma priva di interesse turistico e particolarmente rumorosa (tutta Roma è rumorosa, specie di notte, ma questa zona si segnala in modo particolare). La stazione Termini, e quindi il collegamenti con il centro, distano 10 minuti a piedi, ma notte si tratta di 10 minuti davvero molto lunghi, soprattutto nelle ore notturne, perchè da affrontare lungo isolati semi-deserti illuminati poco e male, dove non si incontra quasi anima viva (e meno male, perchè quelle poche che capita di vedere non hanno un'aria molto raccomandabile). Volendo raggiungere il centro non esistono molte alternative oltre l'andare a piedi, dal momento che fermate della metropolitana non ce ne sono, ed esistono solo due linee di autobus che facciano fermate lungo via Tiburtina: una passa appena una volta ogni ora, e l'altra (più frequente) costringe ad un tour panoramico di mezza periferia per poter arrivare nei pressi di Santa Maria Maggiore, non più vicino di così al centro. In definitiva, una sistemazione economica che non vale quel poco di risparmio a fronte dei disagi logistici che comporta. Buona forse per giovani volenterosi e/o avventurosi con poco bagaglio, meno buona per chi cerchi un medio livello di comodità e di relax.

My boyfriend and I had an overall nice stay at Felice. The staff is very friendly and hospitable, although the fact that no one knows any English made it quite difficult to ask directions etc. The environment at Felice is very loud, street noise and the public park across the street (with live music most nights) made it impossible for us to sleep without earplugs. That said we very satisfied with the hotel - the price and the location within walking distance of most sights in Rome was worth the downsides. There are quite a few good restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel, convenient stores, a pharmacy and a bakery. We can definitely recommend Felice to other couples and travellers who dont want to spend large sums on hotels.

Large room with sink/baedae - useful as we shared a bathroom (there were two on the corridor, which was enough for everyone) - that was clean and well-kept. Very hot in summer and no a/c or fan; the road beside is quite noisy. However, there are several excellent and cheap eating establishments nearby and you're a 40 minute walk/10 minute bus ride from the Colosseum. I'd recommend this to anyone on a budget.

The hotel was small and, though situated near Termini station, at the very end of it which means a 15 min walk to reach it. The room was quite big but very hot with not even a fan to move the air. Opening the window was not an option as it faced the back of a bar/restaurant which smelled terribly and was very noisy. Breakfast consisted of one brioche per person and a cup of coffee in the bar on the other side of the street. The good thing was that the staff kept our luggage whole day before we checked in so we did not have to drag it around. All in all not too good experience.

While the hotel was clean and the staff were friendly, there were two significant problems. First, there was no a/c or fan to cool this stiflingly hot and muggy room. Since there was no shower in the room, we couldn't cool off in the middle of the night without using the hallway shower. Second, since the window faced a very busy street (via Tirbutina) we were repeatedly awakened at night. It's a decently priced hotel (65 euro), but next time I'll pay a bit more for a shower or a/c. This is a fine hotel for a backpacker as there is a terrace to meet other travelers and swap stories. Not as many English speking tourists when we were there. Don't be fooled by the area during the day. When the sun is out the area around the hotel is dead. However, as night falls the area has one of the most "authentic" restaurant/cafe scenes in Rome as tourists tend to stay closer to the center of town. The crowd is mostly mid twenties and bars line the streets eager to serve cold beverages.

My and I walked about 15 minutes from the railway station to get to the hotel. Be honest say, it's not a good memory for that walk, especially in 9pm. The roadside is dirty and dark. The room itself is ok. It's big and clean. We booked a shared-bath room and there are only two public bathroom and one of them has a very tiny bathtub and it's not flat so make people difficult to stand on it. (I heard that a woman wounded her ankle that night from the an conversation at the front desk the next morning). The hotel located at a corner of the intersaction. During the everning, both sides are filled with dinner tables and people, so you can image the noise to us. Beside that, the water tube of the waterbowl inside the room generates big noise when our neibour used their waterbowl. We could not have a good sleep at all and we switched to another hotel the next day. It wasted our half day of travelling time. The people work there can only speak a very little English, so it's hard to get information or even complain with.

Gebucht haben wir über www.dass-reisebuero.de und sind richtig zufrieden mit dem Service. Das Hotel liegt eine gewisse Wegstrecke vom Bahnhof Termini - es ist sauber (wir hatten die Variante mit der Gemeinschaftsdusche/Klo) und das Personal ist sehr freundlich - jedoch ist es wichtig zu wissen, das das Hotel direkt an einer belebten Strasse liegt und daher recht laut ist. Mit etwas Ohropax kriegt man das wohl in Griff - daher alles in allem ganz ok

I stayed at the Hotel Felice with my boyfriend for three nights in May. We had a fantastic time and found the hotel to be excellent value for money! On the first night we were allocated room number 5, this was a basic but very clean room with private bathroom. The room was of a medium size with a tiled floor, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was small but what we expected for a two star hotel. On the first morning a member of staff called our room and asked if we would mind changing rooms (please note, that the staff do not speak any English at all, so you will need to take a book to help you get along, it took me and my boyfriend an hour to work out that the staff wanted us to change rooms)! The room they moved us to (Number 21) was fantastic, it was huge and the bathroom that we had was lovely, the shower was a real bonus - the ultimate in power showers!!! Again the room was very clean. My only recommendation would be to take towels with you, because, like with many italian hotels I've stayed in before, the towels they provide resemble our tea towels! Another added bonus about staying in this hotel has to be the rooftop terrace, although the view wasnt fantastic, we loved to go there after a long and tiring day with a glass of wine to soak up the sun. The Hotel is located in a university suburb of Rome and at night this comes to life with countless bustling bars and restaurants. Although this is not one of the prettiest of areas in Rome, we had a great time as there was a carnival held in the park opposite the hotel, which was a great laugh! Although the hotel isn't very central we found it a doddle to get into the centre, basically there is a bus stop about two mins walk away from the hotel with buses coming through every 15 mins, we caught the 71 to Tirbitina metro station and from there you can go pretty much anywhere in Rome! Basically, we found this hotel to be clean, friendly and fantastic value for money. Would recommend to anyone!!

L'hotel è situato a pochi passi dalla stazione Termini,in una zona ricca di locali notturni. La pulizia è ottima come la cordialità del personale. La reception è aperta 24-24 e si può rientrare a qualsiasi ora si desideri. La colazione è si al bar a fianco all'hotel ma questo è un vantaggio perchè non implica limitazioni d'orario come in tutte le altre strutture. Sicuramente un'hotel da tenere in considerazione quando si deve soggiornare a Roma.

Hotel Felice is listed as bed and breakfast accomodation however breakfast consisted of getting a ticket from the front desk to get a cup of coffee in the cafe down the street!! Our room was far from the picture that was shown on the internet and in their leaflet, we requested a room with bathroom and their "bathroom" was a small converted balcony, not much room to move with the shower flodding the bathroom each time we used it, hot water also only lasted for 20 minutes each morning! Not impressed at all. We went on to stay in other hotels in italy for less money where the standard was much higher.
