Old and new combine with a stay at Rome’s newest guesthouse, the iRooms Central Station. Within a 15-minute walk of some of the city’s big hitters, including the Colosseum and Roman Forum, Campo dei Fiori and Pantheon, iRooms favors a more modern design to its surroundings. Changing LED lights and iPads in each guestroom help you to create your own personalized retreat in the heart of the city here.
Jacuzzi rooms also raise the bar with sunken tubs and statement bed frames. Add to that unlimited movies, rain showers and well-stocked minibars and you have everything you need to revive and relax in one of Europe’s buzziest cities. You’ll find countless trattorias, the Vatican Museum and Spanish Steps also within a few Metro stops
How to Get There
Unfortunately I cannot recommend this place to anybody. We arrived and the elevator wasn’t working so we had to climb 6 flights of stairs with our luggage. When we got there we were greeted by a shouting match between the staff and a resident from down below as someone had left the door to the elevator open and that’s why it wasn’t working, to her credit Nanu was very apologetic and gave us an upgrade room to the ispa. Everything seemed fine but on returning to our room at around 9:30pm there was a horrible smell of sewage that was noticeable from the reception, turns out it was our room and coming from the toilet and the jacuzzi which is situated right beside the bed. We had also noticed that something had come up through the jacuzzi including pubic hair, a moth and what looked like sand or dirt. We brought this to nanus Attention via what’s app and she said as it was after 3pm she couldn’t do anything. the following morning after having to block the drains and wedge the doors with towels and spray deodorant and aftershave in a failed attempt to mask the smell. We requested an early checkout however were refused any compensation unless they could sell the room again. I have never written a review before and have travelled all over the world but am writing this in hope it can make someone’s Rome trip a little better by avoiding this property. Unfortunately we are now out of pocket and had to book another property, even though we haven’t received anything back from iRooms.
This is our third stay with iRooms and we love them every time.
First year we stayed near the Pantheon but the last two years we chose the central station.
We have stayed in both the iTube and iLove rooms here and they’re both great. Immaculately clean and the staff are very friendly.
Location is great, as near the station and metro and the rooms are excellent value for money.
iRooms will always be special for us as he proposed here last year!
Will be back next year again
