Arrived at the hotel at 1pm and was told we couldn't check in until after 2pm. No problem, came back after 2pm and was told we could not check in still. So we waited in the lobby and after 20mins, another couple arrived and were allowed to check in as it was a different man. So finally we were permitted to check in. However the elevator looked like the floor was about to fall in so we walked the 3 floors each day.

This hotel is in a good location, but the room was cramped, the internet did not work in the room as promised, the staff was (with one exception) bordering on gruff, breakfast was limited in choice with prepackaged goods and machine coffee, and the rugs look as though they haven't been cleaned in decades. It is a place that once was likely very good and could be again with some real care given to cleanliness and service. But right now, it's not worth the money.

The hotel was clean and relatively quiet for the Termini area, an excellent location for getting to any of the main tourist areas by metro. The rooms were basically good and the staff most welcoming. The breakfast area was overcrowded and untidy, and the food provided was basic continental fare. For the money paid I have stayed in better accomodation in this area (but I have also stayed in much worse!). The shower was a mixer tap in the bath, and it was quite a step up to get into it so I wouldn't recommend for older guests. A good basic hotel with few frills.

Location of hotel is very convenient because it is right next to Termini(main metro and bus station); so it made it very easy to get around Rome. But do not expect quietness due to where the hotel is located (it was very loud early each morning). Hotel has nice lobby, but does not have free internet. Breakfast was included. Hotel rooms appeared old with very small bathroom, but overall service and quality was fairly good for price paid.

My sister and I stayed here in 2006 and had a very nice experience. That year (2006) there was a most couteous and friendly staff. Our breakfast also was very nice with fruit, cheeses, yogurt and other choices. This hotel has definitely gone downhill since 2006! In April, 2009 there is an overall lack of maintenance in the building. Elevator seemed as if the floor was about to fall through. Our bathroom had a rotten door with pieces ripped out at bottom and huge areas of no paint because of rot. The door of the small refrigerator in the room would not shut. Staff was courteous but not overly friendly, in fact kind of grumpy, and breakfast was severly cut back to cold hard boiled eggs, bread and cornflakes, and a cold ham tray with a few pieces of ham each morning...no yogurt, cheeses, or fruit. What a disappointment! The only good thing about the hotel is the nightly rate and it's close proximity to the train station and metro. Will not stay here again nor recommend it to anyone else.

It was a triple room, quite big, but unfortunatly the air in the room was like 10 people were smoking there. I think the problem is in the carpet which soak up all the smells. In general the room was nice and the staff too. Sometimes there were flashing lights over the bed, so it made feel us like we are in the old opera and the phantom is near...So if you like pungent feelings this is for you!

Dear Venere, My expectation was that Venere would recommend reputable hotels only. I was perturbed at the poor state of the en-suite at this hotel as there was mould & mildew on the ceiling - as a minimum I would expect clean showering facilities. The room was small with in sufficient air conditioning facilities & had an unpleasant smell. In addition my holiday was ruined by obtaining bite's which following a visit to my doctor it has been confirmed that these could be flee bites. Please can you advise on advise on how Venere will compensate me for my unpleasant & upsetting experience?

Hard to find, make sure you have good directions. The included map is not helpful and is inaccurate. It would be helpful for the hotel to answer e-mails sent to them. I requested an extra night, they didn't respond, when we showed up, they said they had given the room up because we didn't call. It's not easy to call from the US, and not easy to understand their phone system with luggage and a family in tow. E-mail communication would have been helpful.

While the location was perfect (we were going to the Opera and were literally round the corner), the hotel was a typical city hotel. The room itself was spacious enough but the bathroom was small and poky. The breakfast was quite poor with no fresh food but canned meat and fruit. The staff, however, were lovely - very friendly and helpful. Although the station was close, in the immediate area were some lovely restaurants and cafes and it felt very safe.

Apart from the overall stay, which was all in all rather good, an annoying inconvenient occured. The room had been payed in advance by my cousin to the receptionist, and I didn't know it, but before leaving I was asked to pay the room. I payed it, and just by chance I knew from my cousin I shouldn't have done it. Showing the two receipts I got the money back, the receptionist saying "the previous payment was not registered" !!!!

My first reservation through this website was for 1 night, on my way to Sardegna. Reception was not too friendly (had to pay directly, too); but later on one turned out to be communicating all right and helpful to find an address on a map. The room was not super but OK for the purpose. I thought the place was OK and handy, near the railwaystation, so I booked for 1 night a week later, on my way back. All right, everything was clear. When I arrived next time I had the same experience about unfriendly reception. As though I had not been there before and all my data already known. Moreover; the room was not ready, (quite logical at 10.00 a.m.) so I left my luggage there, and when I returned and was guided to my room (207, this time), it turned out to be very narrow, not too well kept and without any window. I felt claustrofobic in it. And yet the price was the same; 90 euro's, which I think very expensive for that room. On my critical remarks at the desk there came none understanding. I spent as little time as possible in the room. Sleeping & shower were OK.

He also stubbornly refused to check with their bank and kept us waiting anxiously for half an hour until he finally checked with their bank and confirmed payment received.

Abbiamo occupato una junior suite, spaziosa a sufficienza per 4, silenziosissima, anche perché dava su un cortile interno (su cui però non era piacevole affacciarsi poichè piuttosto ingombrato). La pulizia lasciava a desiderare e il frigo della camera era staccato e vuoto. Il personale alla reception gentile de visu, meno al telefono (probabilmente persone diverse). Colazione forse non all'altezza di un 3 stelle quanto alla varietà e qualità, ma abbondante. Dintorni classici dei pressi di una grande stazione ferroviaria, con la più varia umanità, ma la posizione così centrale ha costituito un vantaggio per i nostri giri turistici e, rientrando in albergo non a notte fonda, abbiamo percorso le strade in tutta tranquillità.

When we arrived the hotel only had us down for 2 rooms. Fortunately I had printed out the confirmation from Venere. A bit flustered, the clerk found a third room for our group. What a disaster! The third room - #106 - had BEDBUGS! Our friends did not discover them until the morning we were checking out. When I informed the desk clerk his only response was that the "would let the maid know." There was no apology on behalf of the hotel, no offer of compensation, no acknowledgement of what an awful situation it was. We felt the situation was handled very poorly by an uncaring / unresponsive employee. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. DO NOT STAY HERE!

We were asked to pay upfront... I'm not surprised when you see the rooms/bathrooms. The 2star we stayed in was better value

This place was fine for one night--very close to train station--2 blocks maximum. The breakfast was nice and most of the employees were very kind.

My husband and I stayed in a double room from July 24 - 27, 2005. We were there as part of a group of 17 which included 2 families of 4, and 1 single. This review is a summary of all our experiences. Poor ventilation and sealing in the bathrooms resulted in watermarks and mold in the paint throghout the hotel. Some rooms were disgusting. Assuming you aren't bothered by mold, everything else about the hotel was clean and well-kept. The rooms were quite large for 2 people, but the same size room with 2 additional twin beds were extrememly cramped for the families of 4. 2-3 people could use the bathroom at the same time if they were well-coordinated. The hotel is only a block and a half from Termini and the subway station. Despite this, the location was quiet and not particularly scary at night. There are a large number of restaurants and cafes within a short stroll of the hotel. The breakfast offered is a bit meger, with only canned fruit cocktail, 2 kinds of ham, flaked cereal and a couple of hard rolls and jam. The blood red orange juice was a nice treat. The coffee came from a little automated machine, you could choose black, sugar, creamer, or hot chocolate. If someone in your party has a disaability, this hotel is a bit difficult to access with about 8 steep steps with no handrail, just to get into the lobby. Also, the tub/shower has very tall sides reqiring a big step up or down to get in/out. Once inside the hotel, there is a small lift, which can accommodate 4 people very snugly. Overall, I'd say the price was fair. But you're paying for the location and not the quality of accomodations. If you're staying in Rome for more than 3 days, I would recommend staying in another hotel, on the other side of the river, for half your stay.

AC was broken had to badger the front desk in order to get a room change after it was supposedly fixed twice. Staff help in directions and locations were weak. Clean room and bathroom. Breakfast wasn't anything spectacular but it was free.

The only good thing was the location. Room was terrible. 4 person suite had a broken double bed, a sofa bed and they brought in a cot. A/C went out the last day. Not a 3 star hotel. More like a 1 or 2 star. Staff not overly friendly. Elevator worked 50% of the time often returning to the ground floor and then wouldn't move. Had to use the stairs alot. There were no mini bars or refrigerators in the rooms. I would definately stay somewhere else next visit.

great location. be sure to exit the termini station at the main entrance (by busses) and not the commuter train entrance on the side -- its a short walk this way. otherwise, you are dealing with luggage and cobblestone streets uphill for several blocks!

Room very clean and roomy. Staff at front desk (three different gentlemen) were quite helpful and friendly during our stay. Good location for access to Termini train station. Only minor problem was the bathroom's handheld shower nozzle, which sprayed water everywhere. I would still consider staying at the Giglio dell'Opera again.

this hotel is a dump!! and not worth the money. there was mold and mildew all over the bath tub tiles, the a/c didn't work the carpet was dirty as well as the walls. The bell hop had body odor so baldy we didn't want to ride in the elevator.Just take a look at the dirty old fake flowers when you walk in the entry and it's the beginning of the worst impression we got in rome.I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

We were given a family room as requested. It was adequate, but cozy (cramped) as their were two adults, a 16 year-old and twin 7 year olds. The accomodations were fine though but the customer service was not as nice as we recieved in London, Paris, or Florence. Breakfast was included and was fine. I would still stay here again, but 165 euro a night seemed kind of high for what I consider a two star property. Great location though... Near the train station and the metro, and we walked to the Colliseum, and the Hard Rock!

The a/c was broken, so very noisy due to having to leave the windows open. The elevators VERY tiny, hard to get your suitcase to the room. The halls had holes then covered with pictures. Breakfast was good. Front desk staff helpful in getting cab to the airport.

O hotel fica muito perto da estação termini e das paragens de autocarro e de metro. Os monumentos ficam um pouco distantes do hotel, mas há transportes públicos com frequência. O quarto estava limpo mas era muito barulhento. Ficámos num quarto mesmo junto à recepção. A partir das 5h da manhã as pessoas começavam a falar muito alto e não se conseguia dormir. O pequeno almoço não era muito variado, mas tinha o essencial.

Whlst there was a general shabby appearance to the rooms, they were clean and the staff, especially the night staff, more than made up for this. We had a great stay. Be warned about the pickpockets in Rome, mainly on the metro and the buses, but don't let them spoil your stay.

The hotel was about 2 blocks from the termini. The rooms were standard European rooms- small shower, adequate beds- but nothing plush. It was a little bit pricey for the rooms when we went but our timing was bad b/c Pope Ben XVI was having his inaugural mass that weekend. The area surrounding the hotel is very cute. It was a easily do-able walk to the forum and other sites- except for the Vatican- although we did walk there too (took a cab back). The rooms were clean, the staff was (for the most part) friendly, breakfast is buffet style so you don't have to wait and the breakfast room is big enough to accomodate all.

Hotel ideale per una breve permanenza.Camere pulite ed accoglienti,un pò piccolo il bagno! Colazione piuttosto povera,in una stanza piccola e poco accogliente. Personale cortese,ma all'apparenza poco disponibile,nonostante vi fossero camere libere non abbiamo avuto la possibilità di tenerla un'ora in più rispetto al check-out per cambiarci prima di ripartire...Rapporto qualità-prezzo buono.

The hotel was fine, the decor in the room was quite good. The staff on the desk could have been a tad friendlier. The breakfast was contintental but it was quite adequate as such. The breakfast room was clean and the lady greeted the people. The hotel is situated not far from the train station termini which was excellent if you were travelling to other cities by train. It was also easy to walk to a lot of the attractions and not far from the main bus stop for the big red bus that took you to all the attractions if you decided not to walk. I enjoyed my stay in Rome in this hotel.

Overall our stay was fine and we would stay there again...just some small minor issues-The area was congested but hey you are in Rome near the train station so for the convenience you have to deal with the neighborhood hustle and bustle. The room was nice and clean but it was very hot and the controls did not seem to work to turn down the heat. Small inconveniences that would not prevent us from recommending it to others.

My wife and I spent the first weekend of our honeymoon in Rome, so we looked hard for a really good small hotel in the city centre. Apart from the EXTREMELY noisy air conditioning, everything was what we hoped for. The location is excellent, within walking distance to practically everything, and with Metro and buses around the corner. The staff were friendly but unobtrusive, very service-minded. Our room was comfortable, clean and cool, although the A/C was a horror... All said, we will probably stay in Giglio next time too. I definitely recommend this hotel!

Dear venere.com, i think that your overall booking service is excellent,esp. the immediate availability of rooms. the hotel gilio opera in roma was a very bad experience. i had booked a quad thinking of a room/rooms to sleep 4 people. i was not prepared to find a cot and a sofa bed for 2 of the 4 people. i had to book another room.the hotel had nothing available for the first night and referred me across the strteet to the hotel gadia. i nughtmare . the key to my room broke off in the door and they charged me 40 euros for this ,after a 3 hour wait--said it would be 30 mins. i even trieds helping the clerk. i talked to the manager of the hotel giglio and and he tolm me not to worry. upon leaving there was a scene in the street with a guy from the gadia screaming at me. the experience was bad. i will cont4st the charges. sincerely,kevin walls
