It's been a comfortable stay: the rooms were not too small, breakfast was good, everything from hairdrier to air conditioner worked. Wi-fi connection was only available in the hall in via Palermo, not in the room as described and windows did not isolate well from street noise: these two were the only drawbacks. The position is great and you can visit almost everything without taking public tranport, if you don't mind walking.

Erroneous information provided as, "Hotel Picasso is set in a quiet street in the historical centre of Rome, just steps from the Termini railway station...". It's on a busy, loud street corner and about 14 blocks from the Termini railway station. Women at desk was not helpful at all - we seemed like a nuisance to her. I would not recommend to anyone.

This was a lovely place to stay. The staff were wonderfully helpful and always had a smile. We realy enjoyed our stay. The only things to note were the room and bathroom were tiny for two people with suitcases. It was also a shame not to have wireless unless we were over at Caravaggio Hotel. But this was a very minor problem. On the whole I would have no problem recommending this hotel.

Nice and very well-located hotel very close to Via Nazionale shopping avenue and Bus/Metro stations. Clean but tiny rooms, window did not absorb any noise from the street. Small bed (1.80 m length x 1.40 width), at least for two grown-ups. Low standard (plastic) breakfast. Nice hotel but highly overpriced.

The lady preparing breakfast was absolutely wonderful. The key to our door didn't fit and I was locked out. When staying at this hotel you are required to walk (about 1 block) to another hotel to get service, keys, pay etc., but the staff was very helpful. The location was beautiful within walking distance of the forum, colliseum, restaurants and a small grocery.

We were in Rome for five nights. The location was excellent and the bed and bath fine. The breakfast was the typical European "light" breakfast but tasty and the coffee great. The price was a great value. I was disappointed, however, in not being able to access the internet on my computer, even though I was told wi-fi was available at the nearby partner hotel. Some people were able to access it, but not my mac nor another person's computer -- not sure why. Also the air conditioning was inadequate for Rome - it made a dent but not much more. The staff did speak English and was very helpful. So it was not perfect, but at the price, I was happy. Just make sure you have an internet backup if that's important to you.

My friends and I went for a short trip to Rome. To stay in this hotel was not a mistake. It’s clean and beautiful. We noted that the furnitures and embedded paints around adopt the taste that we clients look for in a hotel. It has a free wi-fi connections, the staff was polite and courteous. The management offers happy hour aperitives too, a very refreshing way of welcoming clients, and feel at home. We were able to enjoy our stay in Rome going around the city, shopping, dining in different italian restaurants, visiting monuments that informations were provided by the staff. The city itself has made us see the beauty of Rome in the evening... leaving it full of energy as we went back to our home. Many thanks to you, Hotel Picasso!

El hotel me gusto mucho, las habiatciones hermosas, la ubicacion excelente. La gente del hotel fue muy bien predispuesta. Lo malo: la recepcion del hotel solo esta abierta hasta la 1 pm, por lo cual si necesitas algo despues de esa hora, tenias que caminar una cuadra hasta la recepcion del caravaggio lo cual es incomodo. Ademas el telefono del hotel no funcionaba por lo que estabas incomunicado desde tu habitacion.

From the moment we walked in the door we were treated as very important people. The walk from the Train station wasn't bad and the attractions were not far considering how spread out they are. The room was comfortable and we were surprised with a card congratulating us on our Honeymoon which I mention when making the reservations. The AC worked well. The Breakfast was nice though the room is a tight squeeze of tables. The staff was helpful in making tourist plans though one bit of information was off from what was told. The group tour that picked us up at the hotel did not take us directly to the Vatican which we were told by hotel staff. We were taken to their office first then the tour guides transfered us to a larger bus after a little wait. The hotel staff did arrange for our breakfast to be available earlier than the usual time listed in order to make the tour pickup time. We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Picasso overall and would stay here again.

Hotel was hard to find as it was poorly marked. Owners husband accompanied us to our room and reeked of liquor. Air conditioned did not work and the fan provided was old, noisy, and did not work properly. Bathroom was crowded with 4 fixtures and we bumped into one or the other many times. Maid never made up room till nearly 4pm. Breakfast room was very crowded especially on Sunday. Room was noisy. Every time you used the elevator it cost 10 cents Euro.

Good hotel for the price; good value. One side of the hotel borders an unexpectedly noisy street, so a room on that side with the window open at night means lots of noise. We selected a double room with a king size bed, but ended up with a triple (for no additional charge), so we had a bit more room. The breakfast was included and simple but good: rolls, breads, jams, cheese spreads, cereals and milk, 3 kinds of juice, coffee, cappucino, nice server. Rooms were cleaned well during our stay. The hotel is about a 8-10 min walk from Termini. No large sign you will see from the street; you have to be almost right in front of the hotel to see the name. 24 hr desk that will buzz you in via intercom. The hotel is actually on two split floors, the 1st and 5th above ground level. ALSO, Venere says air conditioning is included and the rooms have A/C units, but on arrival in the room we were told that it was broken and not sure when it would be fixed; and it never worked throughout our stay. We were there in mid-September though, so not unbearable.

First off do not use the hotel safe. We put quite a it of money in it and 1200.00 Euro mysteriously dissapeared. I'm talking about the safe at the front desk. Our room safe did not work. They refused to call the Carbinari's into investigate and basically told us tough luck. Nice huh. The info on this hotel is VERY misleading. The lift did not work, heck it wasn't even installed. The air-conditioning did not work either. And no internet connection available. Whom ever was cleaning our room each day just LOVED going through our luggage too. By the way as a retired Police Officer I was not at all happy with how this situation was handled at all. Please think twice before staying in this Hotel.

Roma es sin duda una ciudad muy cara por lo que es dificil encontrar hoteles buenos y baratos, pero por la mismo dinero de Picasso hay mejores hoteles disponibles. En Picasso hay que pagar para subir en ascensor, las habitaciones son muy ruidosas (no por el ruido de la calle, sino que por las puertas internas que se abren y cierran toda la noche), el comedor es realmente pequeno, alguien muy gordo no cabe y el desayuno muy humilde. La atencion del personal es muy buena, pero definitivamente por el mismo dinero hay mejores opciones.

We only saw that this hotel had been given terrible reviews after we had booked 7 nights there so it was a great relief to discover that the Picasso bore little resemblence to the hotel they described. A handy 10 minutes walk from the train station, the Picasso is also ideally situated closer to the centre than most other budget hotels. It is 10 minutes walk from the Colloseum and Roman Forum, 20 minutes from the Trevi Fountain, and the metro to the Vatican or Testaccio area (great restaurants) is close by. The room was very clean, tastefully decorated although a bit rough around the edges, had good air condidioning, a nice bathroom and the view was ok too. It was also very quiet as it is situated on a small road off Via Nazionale. The breakfast room is very small but even in mid August we always got a table straight away. The reception was just a desk in the corridor which was occasionally unattended, meaning a short wait to be buzzed in or out of the main door to the building. On the whole very good value and we had a nice stay there.

The stay in Hotel Picasso was very enjoyable, with clean, air-conditioned rooms at a very reasonable rate. My only quibble was that although 24-hour access was advertised, when I arrived at 3 am (due to a late flight) I could not get into the building because the night porter was asleep. Eventually another occupant in the same building opened the door for me.

The worst price-quality ratio I have ever had! No correspondence to the description in the web.

Breakfast-room so small that we prefered to go for an espresso and cornetto outside. I would never go there again. And it made my stay in Rome not so nice as I expected. Next time I will take 4* which are not so much more expensive in some cases. kind regards, Monika Kail

This hotel was absolutely appauling and i would not recommend anyone to stay there. The air conditioning did not work in any of the rooms and the electricity kept cutting out. The management (not staff) did not care at all about how comfortable we were and the reception always had a different member of staff on so that you could not blame any one person. The breakfast was of low quality and the noise from outside was unbearable. We are making a complaint to the tourist board about this hotel and are demanding some form of refund.

Easy to find the hotel from the main train station as good location in the centre. When we arrived there was no hot water, this continued all night and into the morning despite us being told it was fixed. Not good for a shower after a long journey to Rome. The room itself was very noisy from traffic and smelt strongly of cigarette smoke, so much so that we had to open the window despite it being very cold (it was in February) and noisy already. We also asked for a double room but got a twin with 2 uncomfortable single beds next to each other. Not too bad except for the beds having castors and the floor was hard tiles so the beds just moved apart from each other when you tried to move in bed. The in-room heater was wholly inadequate for the job too so we were cold and couldn't comfortably snuggle to warm each other up. Not a good stay, we'd booked for 3 nights and left after the first. The hotel moved us to another of their hotels (Carravagio) which was much improved although it cost more and we had a mild ant infestation (this was our fault, apparently as we'd left a pear on the bedside cabinet). Not a good impression of this company's hotels. Perhaps they'd improve if a little money was spent on them.

Room was very good & reasonably spacious. Both the room & bathroom were clean and were cleaned everyday (fresh towels). Breakfast was adequate & since we stayed in off season (5 nights in late Nov 2002) the breakfast room was not crowded. The staff was pleasant & helpful. There was some repairs going on to the elevator & for 3 days we'd to climb stairs (that's about the only complaint we have). Try and get room in upper floors (4 & above) since the rooms facing road could have road noise in the night. We'd noise problem on saturday but not sunday onwards. Rooms also have a minibar (fridge) which can be used to keep cold drinks/yoghurt etc. Is about 5-10 mins walking from Termini station and the closest subway is 5 mins away. Via Nazionale is just a block away and has good shopping. 15 mins walk to colloseum (lot of restaurants on the way). Overall we are very satisfied with our stay there and since didn;t pay a lot ($75/night) it was a good deal as well.

Great location just off Via Nazionale. Easy walking distance to main historical centre (Coloseum, Foro Romano, Trevi Fountain etc) and to the Metro Line for access to further destinations (ie Vatican City). Also, great little trattoria situated right next door which was remarkably cheap. Ate there on two nights and for a three course meal, with litre and half of wine for two people (+ bottle of Pinot Grigio to take out) came to only 60 Euros. Not only cheap but food was very good.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Picasso. The elevator is wonderful and the rooms were very nice. The absolute only drawback is the flight arrived at 9am and we couldn't check in until 12pm, and we were very tired.

The main problem was the pictures didn't correspond because they put us in their sister hotel, Hotel Caravaggio instead of Hotel Picasso where we had made our reservation.

The Picasso is not a "hotel" as such more a converted apartment block without full apartment facilities. There are no hotel facilities and breakfast is a complete joke. The room itself was fine if basic but during our stay, which was only two full days, we suffered over half a dozen power cuts. No-one explained what was happening or ever apologised for any inconvenience.

Room clean and tidy and nicely decorated. The breakfast room only accommodated 10 at a time which was a bit of a squeeze and we had to wait for a seat. Staff courteous and helpful. Overall good value for money.
