Spent 7 nights here. Easy walk to Piazza Navona and Pantheon and walkable to Vatican and ancient Rome area. The front desk man was friendly, easy to communicate with. Breakfast help was also friendly. Breakfast was decent and 6th floor dining was very pleasant. Only minor complaint is that the bar is essentially gone. They do not restock it.

Bar tiny one just next to hotel do lovely quick snacky meals and gelato...also cute expresso with lid on...Lovely girl and parents ran this and were v kind ...prices chesp for area ...only ate once in piazza navona not v hood at all.
Surprisingly good pizzaria last day in hidden square nearby start of taxi rank university building oppsite ...
best food at family run hostel di trevi restaurant 10m from fountain ..you could feel at home and did first class pasta and insalate di mare....patrone is an old man v friendly...look for it as some places a rip off to be honest ...down same side street family gelateria too ...
Visit tivoli and cinqueterre under your own speed too if you have time. Glad to have skip the line for colisseum and vatican. Also near termini dioclesian baths and church wonderful....

We stayed at Hotel Genio for 4 nights and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is excellently located for major sites, and for travel to anywhere a little further out as there are bus stops and a taxi rank on the same street. Getting to and from the airport was straightforward with the FL1 train to Ostiense, then bus route 30.
The room was well sized and clean. Maybe it's a little old but it's in character with the building. We overlooked the Main Street but noise wasn't a problem with the window closed, and heat not a problem with the air-con. Kettle and hairdryer are provided, clean towels daily.
Breakfast was buffet style selection of bread, pastries, meats, cheese, fruit, yoghurts, cereal, scrambled egg. The white chocolate croissant was particularly amazing!
Stunning views from the roof terrace where you are welcome to take your own food and drink once breakfast has been cleared and finished.
The staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. They proactively offered information about leaving luggage etc and responded really quickly whenever we had queries or requests.
Overall very impressed and we had a great stay.

We have stayed at Hotel Genio many times - the best hotel in Rome (and I have tried others). An excellent location and a good service - I will certainly come back. And a wonderful terrace on sixth floor for eating breakfast ...

Room Tip: The higher the better

Very easy stroll to Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. While some may think the hotel is a bit dated we found it full of character. The room was huge, even with a third (very comfortable) bed added to the space.The aircon worked perfectly but the wifi was a bit sketchy. Bathroom was large and modern. Breakfast was more than adequate - served on the terrace on the top floor with a 360 degree view of the city. Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make the stay comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone specifically not wanting a super modern hotel that you could find in any city but rather a more authentic experience.
