Before I go any further, this hotel was probably in the best location in Rome. Night time when we arrived so wern't really aware of where we were until the morning, and what a great surprise. 5 min walk from the Forum and Colloseum (well we do walk fast), and 10 minute walk from just about everywhere else. Absolutely perfect situation.

The hotel itself looks very impressive on first arriving and the room was spotlessly clean with clean towels each day, however the room we were in overlooked a very spooky disused hotel with old air conditioning units and a dodgy smell so we didn't open the window, in fact we didn't look out as it was so hideous. Shower was brilliant, but the bath to stand in was the width of my foot so if mobility problems then could be tricky. Very small bathroom and couldn't open the door fully because the towel rail and bidet were behind it so if bigger than a size 14 you probably wouldn't squeeze in. However, it was clean and enough towels. we did have a small 'ant' problem but the staff sorted that out quickly. The room wasn't for relaxing, no tea, coffee etc and no view (as mentioned earlier) so consequently after 12 hours walking we didn't want to go back for a rest so we ended up sitting in cafes or on benches until bed time, this was actually a bit of a pain, but we managed. The TV was also a problem, we couldnt work it out, asked the staff who came and helped, but then it was all in Italian !!! too much bother to get him back so we sat staring at the walls for a while until we fell asleep. No noise from our room but thats because we were facing the air conditioning units !!!!.

Breakfast was fine, usual continental fayre, nice coffee, nice bread and cheeses. Overall the hotel was OK but very dated and shabby with a strange smell. . Only met 3 staff who were a little brusque but we wern't there to be friendly and saw no other guests apart from 1, we actually thought the hotel was a bit spooky. Had a great time, wouldn't stay at this hotel again, but it was ok.

Room Tip: Avoid room 203, small and smelly

... making it so easy to walk to all the fantastic sights and monuments - Rome is fantastic!
However, for a 4 star hotel it was a bit lacking. Our shower was iffy, the breakfast rolls were not the freshest and they kept running out of croissants (brioches) and the noise from our front bedroom was horrendous - even using ear plugs! Although we got a good bargain and didn't pay the full price, some people must and I think they would be disappointed.
But it IS a fantastic location and you are in Rome so ...!
Great traditional restaurant 2 mins away called Melo - great hospitality and food.

Room Tip: Don't sleep at the front unless you are hard of hearing!

I booked this for a surprise birthday trip for my wife and I. Having no previous experience of Rome, I took a bit of a punt with this one using the reviews and the location map!
We were not at all disapointed. The hotel is in a great location directly across the road from the Roman Forum.
A 10 minute walk will get you to the Colloseum (perhaps longer, as the is so much to take in along the way). Turn right as you leave the hotel and follow the road around, and you will find yourself amongst the hustle of the streets of Rome, with bars & restaurants aplenty!
We managed to pack a lot into 2 days, but its simply too much for just one weekend!

The hotel itself is very Grand in the inside and the rooms are well decorated (obviously I can only comment on our standard room). The reception staff were very helpfull and spoke good English.
The shower was hot and powerful, with a bath (should you find the time). Tv had satelite (but didnt use it). Breakfast is conntinental and smelt great but.... we didnt take advantage! We out early and back very late, which is whats needed in order to explore this fantastic city as best you can!
If looking for a hotel in Rome, acknowledge that the buildings are very old, and in some cases may not have the best veiws as the city wasnt built that way!

My tip- Dont worry about the view from your room, get out amongst it as the views will blow you away!! The hotel Traiano is a great place to start!

Room Tip: Asking for a room at the front will secure a view of the Roman forum, but the price paid is the extra traffic noise from the road out front!

Arriving in Rome on the week where the first snow fell in 25 years, the Traiano staff were above lovely and did a phenomenal job managing complex arrangements for travelers. The location is fabulous, and the breakfast room has a remarkable ceiling. The lobby lounge is comfortable and the wireless works there without a hitch. The rooms are typically European-style and on the small side, and the heat in the winter works well. But the decor and features are a bit tired and worn. Paint and grout were less than fresh in the room, as were the carpet and bedspread. The linens were clean and refreshed each day and the attention from the housekeeping staff was excellent. The internet in the room, although worked beautifully on the first day, didn't work at all over the subsequent three days. All in all, a very good stay, but not luxurious. The kindness of these staff and the location outweighed any negatives in my book.

Room Tip: Room layout seems to vary a lot, so be sure to ask if you have strong preferences or wishes. The staff are very accommodating.

The hotel is in a great location for easy access to all the main tourist sights, the staff were friendly and welcoming, rome was great, the hotel rating as 4 star is a bit optimistic in my opinion, i would rate it at more like a 3 star, me and my partner frequently go on short 3 night breaks around the main cities of europe, and normally try to get good deals and stay in 4 and 5 star hotels, i was disappointed at not having a tray with kettle and tea, coffee etc in the room, as i find this a basic requirement for todays tourists, to come back to your room and make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee, the way you like it, and just relax after a day of sight seeing, or waking up in the morning and having your first cuppa, before actually having to get dressed and going down to breakfast, any way, we asked at the front desk, but they do not cater for this, shame, as i always take my pg tips with me, the other problem that i found was that the beds in the room were two single beds pushed together, we had booked a double room, and like all the hotels we have stayed in, expected to have a double bed in the room, i suppose it would not have been too bad, if the two single beds were the same height, one was about 2 inches higher than the other, and the gap down the centre seemed to grow in the night, i kept waking up, and had to push them together a couple of times, i also woke up with an aching back, again we did ask about a double bedded room but for reasons unknown, this hotel only has twin bedded rooms, a fact to consider before booking, we were given a 3rd floor , rear room, the view from the window was of lots of air conditioning units dotted around, and a small triangle of roofs and walls and concrete, the room was very quiet, except for the hum of the air conditioners, we asked for a front room and were given one on the same floor, the rooms are very nice , with on suite toilet, bath and showers, the view from our front room was great, we could see quite a bit of rome, the noise from the road below is quite loud, and would bother a lot of guests, but we live on a main road and are used to traffic noise, so this was not a problem for us, the dining room and entrance are very grand, with marble floors etc, the buffet breakfast was ok, with plenty of cereal, cheese and ham, etc, but except for the cold boiled eggs, there was no cooked food, plenty of tea and coffee but you have to ask for a tea pot, sorry but i am english, all in all, i would not go back to this hotel, purely because for the price we paid, £65 a night, i,m sure there are a lot better hotels in rome, this time of year (january), for the same or less money, the best thing it has going for it, is the location, just another point about going to rome, i paid £60 for the roma passes, waste of money, you can walk everywhere and the main sights don,t cost much to get in, if you are flying to ciampino airport, book terravision coach to rome terminae for only 8 euros return, its only 40 mins , and a nice ride.

Room Tip: ask for a rear room if you want a peaceful night, if you want a view, then you have to put up with the loud traffic noise.
