Hotel Roma Aurelia Antica
Ranked #1,059 of 1,267 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 22 September 2016

I stayed here with my husband for four nights on 4th September 2016,
We found the hotel really clean and comfortable!
Metro in and out of Rome each day Rome to Battistina cost 3 euros each, then caught the shuttle bus back to the hotel each day 2 euros each. Very reasonable!
I agree it is a little out of Rome, but the hotel price reflects that.
Hotel staff were extremely helpful, particularly Sara.
Meals in hotel restaurant were buffet style and really good. There is also a steak/burger restaurant a short walk away and a MacDonalds.
I would recommend this hotel!
We had free wifi but this was because we booked under the friends and family link!

Room Tip: We had a very quiet room, requested this when we booked in.

1. Wi-Fi is not FREE! You have to pay 3€ for 4 hours.
2. Hotel is very far from the centre. It has a bus to the centre but you have to pay 3€ for go and return each day. It only works a few hours in a day and has only 1 stop. If you want to go out for the night, you have to use taxi.
3. It has a pool and a pool garden. However you cannot use the garden whenever you want. You can find yourself locked out of the hotel under the heavy rain.
4. They do not change bed sheets. They only tidy your beds.
5. Rooms are very dirty. Impossible to step or look at the rugs in the rooms. You have to bring your slippers and throw to trash after using in the room! Because you don't want to use them afterwards.
6. If you wish to use towels, you need to take a deep breath before using them. They smell like a dead body.
7. Staff at the restaurants and reception have really bad behaviour. They do not want to help you at all. Their best skill is charging you euros!
8. You cannot bring your towel to the pool. You have to pay 3€ for towels.
9. Diner is not good and expensive.
10. Breakfast is not bad but there is no black tea. All the teas were aromatic.

The only good thing about hotel was the gentleman from Tunus. He is the best! He helps you all the time, cares about you and your needs. He can talk 12 languages. He is really underestimated at that place of sh.t!

Had to stay here as this hotel was booked by the company for a business meeting I was attending. In no way is this a four or five star hotel. My biggest complaint was the thin walls. I could here the people in the rooms next to me when they were simply walking around talking. No irons in the rooms. They do have a laundry service that will press your clothes, but it was closed the day I needed it. (Friday). Also, the food in the hotel was not very good. Not many healthy options, lots of fried/greasy foods. Pool & Patio area was fine, staff was (mostly) helpful. Rooms are worn, but bathroom was clean. Reason for the low rating is due mostly to noise & poor food quality.

Stayed here for four nights for a conference, good conference facilities, swimming pool, poolside food area, restaurant and rooms. corridors can be very noisy at night, bedroom and en suite were a good size, but my air conditioning failed after two nights, reported but never repaired, TV very confusing (too many menu's). Food was good but service was slow, staff pleasant and helpful on reception, bar area seemed to be understaffed. In general this hotel is holding on to its status as a quality hotel, very popular with tour groups, shuttle bus into Rome center available.

Room Tip: Make sure the A/C is working

Ignore all the bad reviews on here, petty, snobby comments with minimal truth in them if any truth at all.

This is the 4th hotel we've stayed in since getting to Rome and I've loved every second of being here.
It has Beautiful pool area, though watch out for mozzies. Lovely spacious rooms, friendly staff and good location.

We were upgraded for our room on arrival and then given a passcode for free wifi for our entire stay, we didn't even ask for it.
Staff are really friendly and helpful, one lady was a little miserable but all the others have been amazing, say hello when they walk past, helpful and fun.

We've stayed in central Rome for 4 days and ended up booking other hotels, a 4star in the central city is not really a 4star and the amenities are really slim, also unless you pay big money you won't get a pool which means you are limited.
Also getting a cab in the city is £5-£9 for just getting in it meaning a trip round the corner will cost atleast £10.

This hotel whilst a little way out of central Rome gives you a real 4star hotel with the nicest breakfast we've had in Rome and to get a shuttle in or even a taxi will cost half the price of going round the corner in central Rome.
Shuttles go to the Vatican, collassuem etc and easy accessible.

Do a shop before you get here as closest shop is 5min drive but you can't really walk it so otherwise you need to buy everything here but lovely little gift shop.

Over all had a lovely experience and if I did 10 days in Rome again I would of stayed here at the start.

Really angers me to see bad reviews that have nothing to do with the hotel like the weather and the location - can't moan at location as its not like they lied!??? Do your homework and look at a map.
