We booked a double room at Hotel Daniela, but there were some problems with the water and they send us to Hotel Edera. The location was even better than the first. The room was nice, clean and we had balcony. Breakfast was ok. The hotel has also wi-fi. The location is great, very close to Colosseum, metro station, Termini.
The only negative thing was that on our reservation was written that fee and taxes are included and at the reception they put on our invoice another fee.
Booked a double room through booking.com and got a cheap deal, around £33 pppn. (We were a little miffed to hear that we had to pay the tourist tax £2pppn as we were told it was already included but this was no big deal and possibly the fault of the agent rather than the hotel)
The staff were friendly and we encountered no problems, breakfast was standard for European hotels with cereal, croissants, rolls jams, ham and cheese everyday with fresh coffee.
The room was small and 2 single beds were shoved together but I'm beginning to realise this is fairly normal for budget hotels. The bathroom was clean and impressive with a new marble-looking finish.
One annoyance is the staff's habit of turning your air conditioning off while you are out so the room is always hot when you first get back, but we had a fairly powerful little machine in our little room so it cooled down quickly. I found a solution to this was hiding the remote although they must have got a spare one one of the days. Oh you also have to ask for the remote at reception which they will neglect to tell you but offer when you ask.
We wanted a certain standard of room because it was our little get-away and we wanted somewhere nice to come back to but the location was the most important thing to us as we planned on being out site-seeing all day every day, and the location is fantastic!!
Walking 30 seconds round the corner you can see the Colosseum and after a 5-10minute walk through Domus Aurea (Nero's garden) you are there! And there is a metro line at the Colosseum from which you can get to almost everywhere for a couple of Euros.
Not by any means a top hotel but would recommend for those on a budget as deals can be found that beat the price of some hostels!
I went in Rome in 03.02.2012 for the weekend with my girlfriend and a friendly couple. When we entered the hotel, a very friendly guy welcomed us and very quick he drove us to our rooms. Our room was under some kind of repairment so, he gave us another one in the 2nd floor wich was pretty comfortable and clean. The first one was on the 6th floor. My friends stayed on this floor. After the first day, everything seemed to be perfect, but the second there was no water in any tap of the hotel beacuse of the cold. We told the receptionist about the problem, and he said that they couldn't do anything with the excuse that the hole city was in the same situation. Third day and we still didn't have water. then, at the end of the day they offered us the chance to go to another hotel nearby, and give us a discount to our price for the two days for about 10euros per night. That was unacceptable, but we didn't knew our rights and it was very difficult to call anyewhere outside Italy. So, after a lot of negotiations with the manager herself, we had a discount of 15euros per night. That was the only black spot to our accomodation in Edera. The hotel is very close to the Colosseo, only 5minutes maximum on foot, and to the metro where you can easily visit any place in Rome.
Just come back from a three nighter staying here. First impressions not great - entrance between two garages! Room looked tired, but clean, saying that the wallpaper was peeling at the joints, bathroom door woulkd not secure as the lock was broken, wardrobe doors would not close as one was not on its hinges properly, no control unit for the air-con and due to the low level we were at, had to keep the shutters closed with the windows ajar to keep the local moggies out. Towels etc could do with replacing as they were worn thin - again clean though. No in room info guide to attractions etc and no facilities to make a drink at all..Hotel provided an adequate continental breakfast [cheese, meats etc] but no bar or any other chance to get a drink [no room service etc]
To be honest, would be best described as a B&B than a 3* hotel
I am surprised to read the bad reviews for this hotel because we love it. We are staying here now and will have had 3 nights here altogether. The staff have been friendly and helpful and the room is very clean. It is much bigger than other ones we have stayed at on this trip. Our friends' room is a bit smaller but still sufficient. The A/C works fine in all our rooms, (there are 3 couples) and we are all very happy with the hotel. We can walk to most places, including the Colosseum. It really is in a great location and very quiet at night.
There is free Wi-Fi and safety deposit boxes at the front desk. They don't have a restaurant, apart from breakfast in the morning, but that is even better, because they have let us bring our own drinks and nibblies back and eat them in the courtyard out the back. There are plenty of nice cafes nearby for dinner.
Maybe we are not as fussy as some, because we are only here to sleep,the rest of the time we've been running around Rome. But we have found this hotel extremely comfortable.
