Hotel Marco Polo Hotel 3 star

Amy Adejokun Section editor

A very simple hotel, not far from Termini station, with the advantage of having been renovated recently. To be chosen when the announced prices correspond to those of the low season. The Marco Polo stands out only because of its bedrooms, which are very well taken care of. There is no original feature. What a shame there was no terrace on the roof, or no stylish decoration - that some other hotels in the same category also offer their guests.

    Location 8.68 /10

    On the via Magenta, one street away from Termini station (trains to the airports and underground station).
    Fiumicino airport is 15 mi away; Ciampino's is 10 mi away. It takes 45 minutes to get to Fiumicino and 30 minutes for Ciampino.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    22 bedrooms are available, including triples in which an extra bed can be added on request. Keep in mind, however, that you will be a little cramped up in that case: a surface of 269 sq ft for 4 people does not leave much space for everyone. You would be better off hiring a triple and a single: it should be roughly an extra £8.80 (in low season) compared to hiring 2 doubles. As far as the bedroom design is concerned, it is simple but well maintained: the walls are painted with orange spatolato (a type of glaze paint of Venetian origin), green carpet, glossy contemporary furniture. As for the view, preferably request a room overlooking the via Magenta (not much traffic): the buildings across the street have a better aspect than the unkempt back courtyard (the view from the other bedrooms). Here are the available facilities: bathtub or shower and a hairdryer in the bathroom, a TV set, air-conditioning, telephone and mini-bar.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    The Marco Polo is located on the third floor of a building housing several hotels. It is a city hotel, with a reception, a breakfast room and bedrooms. No fancy decoration, nothing superfluous either, not even (but the hotel layout probably did not allow it) a terrace on the roof. Which brings us to say that you should choose the Marco Polo for its bedrooms (from around £54.50 for a double) and for its situation, 164 ft from Termini station. The hotel underwent renovations in 2008, which were a triumph. It is however an old building: do not expect too much from the lobby (on street level), or from the soundproofing of the building.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    Breakfast is included in the price of the stay at the hotel, but it won't give you the opportunity to have a feast. The buffet presents a basket of fresh fruit, another one of croissants, a tray of cheese slices, another of salami, toast (to be avoided), bread rolls (much better) and cereals. A dispenser is there for you to help yourself to filter coffee, cappuccino or espresso. You will settle at one of the tables covered with a white cloth (a little extra decorative element, but as there is no terrace, so you won't be lingering for very long). Once breakfast is over, you will have to find somewhere else for lunch and dinner, because the Marco Polo has no restaurant. It does not have a bar either. But the area has a good number of day-time and night-time restaurants and bars.

    To know

    The hotel Marco Polo has had its communal areas renovated (reception, breakfast hall) and a part of the bedrooms in 2008.
    Accommodation tip
    Request a room overlooking the via Magenta (not too busy) ; that will spare you the view of the back courtyard with dull façades around it.

      This is the right choice if you're looking for a good place to stay at a lower price. Its location is both its plus point (next to Termini station) and its drawback (the hotel overlooks a very busy street). It is handy if you are arriving late, plan to leave early, or are staying on a tight budget. The rooms are simple but comfortable, and have undergone recent improvements.

      • Location 8.67

      A central hotel, situated a stone's throw away from Termini station (ideal for train journeys to the airport), Yes opened recently and has all the necessary comforts for modern day demands. Therefore the rooms are well soundproofed, they offer a small basket of hospitality products in the bathrooms (rare in mid range hotels) and the decoration is modern. To be recommended for accommodation without spending too much.

      Belonging to the same group as the Yes Hotel, and located in the same area, the Hotel Des Artistes is for customers passing through and who need a simple hotel near to the Termini train station. Families and groups of friends will find a place to stay here in the triple and quadruple rooms. However, you do not need to be sensitive to noise, as the hotel is badly soundproofed, and often noisy (due to customers' arrivals and departures).

      • Location 9.66

      Opened in 2009, UNA hotel still looks brand new, both inside and out. Modern, minimalist and strangely quirky in parts (the zebra print couch in the entrance hall should give you an idea of what is in store), almost all guests will tell you that UNA is very good value for money. This is a hotel completely at odds with the ancient city around it and provides an ultra-modern alternative to most of Rome's authentically crumbling hotels. Of exceptional note are its extremely polite and attentive staff and superb bar and restaurant.

      • Location 9.54

      This is an historic hotel, which doesn't seem to have changed since it opened in 1875. As this type of hotel is disappearing and the prices are very reasonable, we shall recommend the Massimo d'Azeglio to anyone who likes old-style holidays. Well located, in the heart of the city centre: so it is not the quietest of its category, but the interior and the restaurant are so quaint that they are definitely worth spending some time in.

      • Location 9.61

      Of the three hotels in the Bettoja chain situated on the Via Cavour, the Atlantico is the most modest, but not necessarily the cheapest. To be chosen when the other two hotels are full. If this is the case, you will be reassured by the breakfast buffet, served at the Mediterraneo, and you will be able to use the gym in the basement like the guests of the Massimo d'Azeglio.

      • Location 9.97

      Only a short walk from the central Termini train station, the Hotel Palladium Palace has lost much of its former splendour and seems to have fallen slightly into disrepair. Nevertheless, its positioning could not be more convenient and availability is always good. An imposing building, this hotel is basic but a perfect base if you're going to spend most of your time out roaming the streets of the capital. Its four stars is a little deceiving so be sure to expect something a little more simple and prices that are not really worth what you receive.

      To make sure of a pleasant stay, impress your other half with a setting that lacks neither gilding nor history, and to discover ancient (or Renaissance) Rome within walking distance of your hotel, reserve a room at the Exedra. This is a luxury hotel but it is not flashy, with attentive and discreet service. It is like living in a palace and, from June to September, you really can get a feel of the "dolce vita", with the open-air swimming-pool on the roof.

      • Value for money 7.35
      • Location 5.67

      The Hotel de Russie is one of the grand hotels in Rome with a garden. A privilege that is all the more remarkable because this garden, which backs on to the Monte Pincio (the hill leading to the Villa Borghese Park from the Piazza del Popolo), gives the impression of being in the very heart of the countryside. Perfect for getting away from the commotion and noise of Rome (which begins at the hotel door) whilst remaining just a few minutes by foot from Piazza di Spagna and the elegant shops in the area.

      Take the winding roads through the gardens of the Villa Borghese (one of Rome's most historic villas and gardens) and you will emerge into the peaceful neighbourhood of Parioli, distinctly different from Rome's usual bustling centre. Here, flanked by large private residences, the Aldrovandi Palace hotel offers its guests an exclusive place to rest their heads. As a Leading Hotel of the World, the hotel is used to welcoming guests who expect only the very best - attentive staff, gourmet food and comfort. And this is exactly what it delivers, with elegance, style and a two-Michelin-star restaurant to boot.

      • Location 7.44

      It may be on the list of Rome's hotels but the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is quite different from your ordinary hotel experience. It cannot be confined to any kind of category, nor can it be given any stars. It is simply in a class above the rest - an aristocratic home away from home if you will. Still owned by Count Trivelli and his wife, the Villa was converted from the Count's private residence and still retains its original furniture. You must be looking for the very best in luxury accommodation (with a budget to match) to appreciate the magnificence of this 20th century property, its beautiful rooms and gardens. Rest assured though, that you will receive only the best in exclusive service and ultimate privacy. If official photos tend to exaggerate the elegance of the hotels they picture, then those of Spalletti Trivelli don't do it justice. You must be sat in the grand drawing room with a hot drink or snuggled up in the library with a book in order to really see the restored beauty of one of Rome's most exclusive addresses.

      The Regina Baglioni is one of the historical landmarks of the Via Veneto. Wander down as if to have a drink at Harry's bar (located on the same avenue): for a chic yet traditional atmosphere. Take in the luxury of early 20th Century palaces, the traditional service and the refinement of the decor. It is best suited to couples celebrating a special occasion (birthday or other celebration) to fully appreciate the hotel.

      • Location 5.0

      For true boutique style, class and impeccable service, the Lord Byron is our top choice of places to stay in Rome. There is a reason that this hotel has such a loyal returning clientele and it is simply because the service is outstanding. From the moment you walk up the steps to the reception, a relaxed atmosphere washes over you. It may be out of the immediate vicinity of Rome's biggest attractions, but it is all the better for it. After a long day of absorbing the endless roman culture, it is true heaven to come back to a hotel that really feels like home.

      A pretty, well located hotel with a limited number of rooms: for those who want to experience the chic side of Rome, take a stroll through Villa Borghese park or do some shopping on the Via Veneto or in the Piazza di Spagna area. This rococo-inspired hotel is beyond reproach, if you can afford to stay in a suite and take lunch and dinner in the gourmet restaurant with no budget restrictions.

      • Location 6.02

      An upmarket hotel, well located for exploring the Piazza Navona and the Trastevere district on foot, the St George is recommended for a week-end away from it all... This will give you the opportunity to try the spa (maybe a treatment or two and a dip in the hydrotherapy bath), sample the restaurant menu and hang out in the wine bar. Ideally you would stay here when the panoramic terrace is open (between April and October). In practice, though, if the rates offer a better deal in January, don't hesitate to stay at the St George: the decor in the hotel (all beige, grey-green and glossy brown) makes it feel more like winter than summer anyway.
