This was a great choice for a relatively inexpensive place in the heart of Rome, near Piazza Repubblica and the Termini train station. It was easy to get everywhere from there. Well recommended. It was not easy arriving by car - we parked on the sidewalk, dropped off our luggage as quickly as possible, then took the car to the rental agency (no need for a car in Rome!). Also, you need to know that it is inside a main building, toward the rear, and not the whole building itself.

The hotel was comfortable and good value for the money. The wireless internet and the air-conditioning both worked very well, which were prime concerns for me. It was also spotlessly clean. However, our room was completely charmless and a bit depressing; it looked like a college dorm room furnished by IKEA. The public space was small and no more appealing. The pictures on the website didn't really convey this. Breakfast was a bit disappointing: no fresh fruit or bread (other than croissants), mostly tinned fruit, cold cereal and packaged cakes. The coffee was good, however. If you are looking for a centrally located (near buses and Metro), small hotel, and don't care too much about charm or amenities, I would recommend this hotel.

A bit hard to find since it was sandwiched in between other offices and hotels in the same building. (We arrived by train and walked from the station.) We had a triple for myself, my wife and my daughter. It was hot in Rome; the air conditioning worked well. So did the WiFi service for our iPad. We stayed two nights at the end of a three-week stay in Europe. Hotel called cab to take us to airport. Breakfast was above average.

A great hotel for a sightsseing of Rome. We intially had a superb appartment (several rooms even with "private" entrance) with it which was fanstastic apart from some noise from the side street. After one day we decided change to a different appartment which was smaller, still very pleasant and not facing the street, thus quiet. It is slighlty difficult to find the entrance on arrival, bur this is not an issue. Clean, good service, reasonable location. I recommend it. It is easy to walk to all main attractions from the hotel.

hot position nearby the railway station and a the very beginning of the main street (via Nazionale) heading to city center. tea and coffee boiler on the desktop; the bathroom was as small as the room, tv wall mounted had a wrong inclination so that you can't watch tv laying in bed, since my room was facing on the street I couldn't keep the window opened to breath while sleeping (I need it). I didn't like their continental breakfast since croissants and pastry were not well cooked but actually raw (may their oven didn't work well to unfreeze croissants). I expected a better room according to the photographs on the site but I anyway rate my overall staying positive because the hotel is in good central position and clean and smart.

The shower stall was like a vertical coffin, not even enough room to soap one's body without bumping your elbows on all surfaces. The second time they gave us a 3 bedroom suite (surprise) which was very spacious. The location is very good, I would suggest checking other hotels nearby also.

This is a good choice if you want a hotel within easy walking distance of the train station (Termini). Don't expect to see a grand facade with a big sign out front because it's not there. Look carefully for the address and ring the bell to be let in. The rooms are clean, modern, and the staff is very helpful.

I had two stays at Hotel Gea. My first stay was on 3 Apr (Easter weekend) just for one night. The single room (#26) was tiny but for one night not an issue. The hotel let me store a carry-on bag until I returned in a week. My second stay 11-15 Apr, was in room (#35). The room was three times the size of the first room with a double sized bed and a window facing the courtyard. The bathroom was ample sized too with a shower. This was a very nice upgrade, without asking. My carry on bag was waiting for me in the room. The cold breakfast was sufficient. I used the Via Napoli entrance exclusively. The lift for the Via Nazionale entrance requires a key. The lift on Via Napoli does not require a key. The only drawback is you need to climb a flight of stairs to reach the lift. The location was very convenient to Termini. Target restaurant on Via Torino was excellent and only two blocks away.

For a short stay in central Rome the Vulcano is a good choice. 5 - 10 minutes on foot from Terminii station and well positioned for all the major sites of interest in Rome. The hotel was a little hard to find after dark but the staff were welcoming, the room was well laid out (albeit a little small), the bed was comfortable and my sleep was undisturbed. If you are looking for ellegant surroundings and lots of extra facilities (bar, pool, gym etc) this is not the place for you but as a friendly place to stay for a weary traveller the Gea di Vulcano is well worth considering.

Overall, nice place to stay. I stayed in a single (double bed) room and it was a fairly decent size. The hotel receptionist that helped me check in was fantastic. She spoke great English and gave me maps and other helpful information for my stay. The location is great, especially for some coming in to Roma Termini, as it was a short walk from the station. The metro is a block away and there is a bus stop pretty much right outside the hotel. I only have two complaints. One, I found it kind of annoying that I had to be buzzed in outside and then inside, to get into the hotel. I understand the need to do this for security reasons, but if you leave and then find out you forgot something, it's annoying to have to go through all the buzzing again. Two, my tv was crap. I only watched it when I got back at night or when I was getting ready in the morning, but still, the sound would cut in and out and then just completely go out. I would have to turn it off, then back on again for it to work. In conclusion, very nice place to stay.

Lovely staff with good English. As long as you're aware that it's upstairs, off a courtyard, it's easy to find (although street numbers are a little lacking on other buildings) Good position, maybe 10 minutes from the station and bear in mind the airport express comes to rest a long way down the station. Breakfast was good, though coffee from their all types machine was average.

This hotel is perfect for a short period in Rome. It is close to the centre (around 15 min walking to the Coliseum or the Fontana di Trevi) and the rooms are clean and spacious. The only problem is to find the hotel..... it is a bit difficult.... It is placed in a first floor on a old building but apart from that, it is a very good quality-price hotel!! Besides that, there is a very good restaurant area close to the hotel, less than 10 min walking.... between the via Panisperna and the via Cavour. Enjoy Rome walking around and eating their excellent typical food!!

I am happy to say the AC worked perfectly, the bathroom had plenty of hot water and the bed was comfortable and clean. They even have tea/coffee making facilities and a minibar. The front desk women were very friendly and helpful with info and transfers.Most major sites (Forum/Coliseum) are within walking distance. I have been to Rome many times and this is the best budget hotel I have found. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to all fellow travelers.

I arrived late in Rome, around midnight, which I had announced. Although the hotel was not so easy to find, hidden away at the court yard of a larger building, they were expecting me and it was no problem at all. Also the early breakfast, as I had to take an early train the next day, was no problem. The room was just fine, everything clean and comfortable. If I hadn't decided to sleep with the window open, it would have been very quiet.

This is a great hotel to stay in that's in close proximity to the main train station, as well as a lot of the sites to see in Rome. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Roman Forum and a short walk thereafter to the Colosseum. Also not far from the Spanish steps (about 15-20 minutes in another direction). The rooms were more spacious than I expected, clean, and quite comfortable. The stay was made that much better by the excellent and service and advice of the front desk employees. They gave recommendations on ways to get to certain places, good places to eat, what price to expect for a taxi to the train station or airport, and were just generally very helpful and kind. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to any traveller who is looking for a 3 star hotel at a reasonable price close to the sights and transportation options. I read the other reviews when booking this hotel and can say that they were accurate in helping me know what to expect, especially as far as finding the hotel for the first time. Though the street address is Via Nationale 243, the side entrance is on Via Napoli, # 51, to be used to enter probably anytime after 6 pm. Not much of a problem though, if you know what to expect.

This hotel was excellent, and the girl at the front desk, Alessandra, was the most helpful person there. I guess most hotels in the area are small, because the room was small, but that didn't really matter. It is very close to all of the main attractions by walking, bus and metro. There is a metro station and bus stops (both tour and city buses) right outside the hotel. The entire staff is very helpful, even the ones who don't speak English. The only problem I can see is the lift is super small, and you have to use the side entrance after 7:00 p.m. and the hotel is on the second floor of the building. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel to anybody a thousand times over. Plus Rome is a great city!

great central and safe location, 5 minute easy walk from station , quiet large room, and the only place we found tea and coffeemaking facilities in 4 weeks travelling thru new york, italy and croatia. a big plus! the young girl on reception was very friendly and helpful, free internet in foyer. good restaurant next door to the hotel (in via napoli)would definitely recommend it. good security, safe available.

The bed was a bit hard, but after walking around Rome all day, that really didn't matter much. The rooms themselves are on the back side of the building (away from the main street), so they're surprisingly quiet given the location.

I was impressed with the overall value for the money spent. The rooms are very large, the bed comfortable and the location is good. I stayed in 3 other hotels throughout Italy on this trip and this hotel ranks right near the top in spite of being less than half the price of the others.

Une adresse que je recommande : chambre de 4 (nous étions 3 adultes et 1 enfant) relativement spacieuse, propre et confortable, draps de bain et serviettes de toilette changés tous les jours, accueil trés sympathique, petit-déjeuner varié et copieux. Seule la télé était un peu ancienne mais nous ne l'avons pas beaucoup regardée ! Je n'ai vraiment pas été déçue par cet hôtel. De plus, à côté de l'entrée secondaire de l'hôtel, Via Napoli, le ristorante pizzeria "Il Barocco" est excellent et abordable. Mais il faut penser à réserver si vous arrivez après 19 h 30 car il y a beaucoup de monde!

The room was large enough but suffered from some poor interior decoration. However, the bath was lovely and spacious with a great shower and lovely tiling. The staff was attractive, friendly, and very helpful. My husband and I were very pleased. The hotel had a good location; we were able to walk to many sites and it was close to the train station. It also seemed to be host to a variety of travellers which only added to the interest. Oh, and the free WiFi, though available in the common area was much appreciated.

I loved this hotel. We asked for the romantic, 2-room tower suite that the photo is shown on the booking photo. It was oozing with charm and character. Wood beamed ceilings, a window seat with view over the street below, nice bathroom, ante room with armoir, couch, etc. We even had out own entrance outside the main hotel.Great value. It was one of the best highlights of our 4-night stay in Rome. I would definitely book there again. Staff wonderful. The standard rooms are okay, but don't have the character of this one. It made our anniversay so special.

Thanks to all staff, especially the smiling-face Massimo! Though the entrance to the hotel and to our room was awkward, which was probably due to age of the building, the room was incredible and the service was much more than we expected. In fact, having heard of the high prices compared to low quality of service, especially cleanliness, we were astonished. Staff was kind and helpful even though some did not speak English or German. Though they communicated with gestures and pointing, their smiling faces made us feel like we were not in the core capital of an ancient empire, but in a friendly village at the Meditterenian coast. Thanks to them all. If you plan to use the public transport facilities and walk whenever necessary, I think this is one of the best places you should consider. Meals? Well, we probably were not able to find any good places to eat. Not only around the place, anywhere in Italy (Rome, Florence, Vinci, Pisa, Venice)! Maybe this is because we are used to a much more sophisticated kitchen with a lot more varieties in our homeland, who knows? Pizzas were especially heart-breaking!

An easy walk, even pulling suitcases, from Termini Station. Venere comments (and Google maps & Street View) very helpful in pinpointing hotel entrance. Very warm welcome at Reception and room was ready even though we were quite early. Staff very helpful. Comfortable and clean room. Good choice at a typical continental breakfast. Breakfast starts at 0730hrs so, if you want to, you can be at the Vatican Museum by 0900hrs without rushing. Ideal location for walking to all the main historical sites. Very close to Repubblica Metro for going further afield. Some good, reasonably-priced restaurants in the side streets nearby. On our final day the hotel were happy to look after our bags after we checked out until we returned at mid-day to catch our bus to the airport. Overall, hotel was ideal for us for our short break in Rome.

A clean and comfortable place with a friendly and helpful staff. Spacious room and large bed. Quite a stroll to the Rotonda-Navona area but close enough to Santa Maria Maggiore, Santa Prassede, S. Pietro in Vincoli and so on... Breakfast ok (I can't compare to other places in Rome). Someone commented previously on the smell in the bathroom after flushig and that hasn't been fixed. Slow internet connection in the public computer and wi-fi only in the 'hall'.

First visit to Rome was excellent in part because of the excellent service provided to us by Gea Di Vulcano's staff from the warm smile and advice of Francesca to Maximo on a daily basis. Room was very spacious, clean and well prepared each day (double bed plus extra bed in its own separate alcove) designed with charm such as the unique floor tiles. Hotel was well within safe and leisurely walks from such spots as Trevi fountain, Forum and Termini station but more importantly was on a very central street that had everything from a supermarket a few blocks down to cafes, boutiques, restaurants and souvenir shops. Perfect location, excellent service, clean, spacious, comfy, charming and quiet room at a reasonable price makes this stay simply excellent (especially for a family of three with one small child no less!) Definitely will stay here again in the future. Minor inconvenience was having to take the side entrance on side street if returning to hotel after 8pm but otherwise, all else was great.

It was our first trip to Rome, and it was amazing. It's close to Termini station plus 5min away from Republica tube. We ordered double room plus baby cot, but we also had additional single bed. Our stay was on the end of January (19-24) and it was sunny +10 - 15 C only one day were drizzle. Massimo were great, all the best!

We decided on this hotel after we read the guest reviews and because it is situated in Via Nazionale, i.e. near Termini Station. We arrived about an hour and a half before check in time on a public holiday and immediately our hostess helped us with our bags to our room. This was a first for us as we always left our luggage at the reception and had to return after check in time. It was a good thing I studied Via Nazionale in the Google maps prior to our departure as the hotel is somewhat tricky to find. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Special mention must be made of Francesca and Massimo at Reception whose useful hints we very much appreciated. We stayed for five nights!

Hotel Gea for the most part is as described on Venere's website. It is a small hotel housed on the 2nd floor in a public building with other businesses. We were met at the front door by Francesca and she helped us with our luggage as you had to walk thru a long covered outside alley to get into their building and take an elevator up to the 2nd floor. We had reserved a triple room as we were a family of 3 (mother and 2 adult children). We were given room 27 or 37 that was a private apartment, which had 2 seperate bedrooms and a sitting room with it's own entrance on the side street. It was more than enough room. The furnishings were not elaborate but simple and clean, wood furniture and stain glass windows. Bathroom was a pretty blue and white tile. Breakfast was adequate(coffee, juice, pastries and cakes, cereal, ham, cheeses and fruit)in a small room of about 6 tables with an attendant who made your hot drinks. Location is right on Via nazionale Street where many public buses are available,and it's only 3 short blocks to the Repubblica metro station on Line A and about 4 more blocks to the Termini Station around the circle. You can easily walk to the Termini Station, but it was a litte hard to cross the street. If you like walking you can walk to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain from the Hotel Gea, but it is a little hard to follow a map because many of the streets don't have signs, the name of the streets are on the buildings. We only stayed at Hotel Gea for 2 nights as we were going a a cruise that departed from Rome, but I would stay there again for a longer visit if I could get the same room/apartment. They were also kind enough to hold our luggage on the morning we departed eventhough they really are a small hotel and don't have all that extra room in their lobby or reception area, since we were not being picked up to go the Port unitl 1:30pm and check out time was 10am.

A good, clean, basic hotel, close to the Metro and many attractions, albeit in a fairly busy location. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable, and breakfast varied and plentiful, with great coffee (take your own tea supplies for your room, however, as their is a minibar charge for the teabags, coffee, sugar etc supplied). The church just across the street (St Pauls Behind the Walls) often hosts opera and classical music performances, and we thoroughly enjoyed La Traviata.
