How to Get There
We recently stayed for 7 nights with our 2 year old son. One of the main reasons we chose the Raddison was its handy location near the train station however on reflection this was a mistake. The area surrounding the train station is very run down, lots of graffiti and questionable characters just hanging around on street corners, slap bang in the middle of it all is the Raddison hotel. The hotel itself is fine, it’s clean and well presented and the staff were helpful. The room was small but acceptable with decent air con and a good selection of tv channels.
Unfortunately to get from the hotel go anywhere you have two choices, get a taxi or run the gauntlet for about 4 blocks until you got to the busier area, I’ve travelled extensively and I’m not a nervous person but the area is very rough.
If you’re looking for a nice hotel on a budget and are used to living in a big city it’s a good choice but I couldn’t recommend it for less confident travellers or anyone with small children
I’m not normally one to write a review (especially whilst on my break) but this particular hotel has left a bitter taste in my mouth. After checking in late last night, my partner and I went straight to sleep as expected after a delayed flight. Room is clean and adequate. Except a ‘complimentary’ half bottle of water left on the side already been touched by the staff or previous guests. It was upon check-out we encountered some of the rudest staff including the manager. We asked if we could use the pool and facilities, booking this hotel only for that reason. We were told earlier this morning that this wouldn’t be an issue however upon checkout we were told to leave the hotel immediately and was informed we would have to pay a fee if we wanted to stay. I think this is appalling considering we didn’t even use the facilities the prior day. I will never book a Radisson Blu again. No wonder the reviews on here are so bad, I should have listened to them and kept well away.
This hotel is a good value for your money if you are willing to ignore a couple of small items. Firstly, this hotel is bang across the main train station - this means a lot of noise if you get a room facing the station. If you get a courtyard facing room, this problem goes away. This hotel, like many hotels in Rome is built on top of excavated Roman ruins. But they have taken immense care to preserve these ruins and you can actually see the ruins as soon as you enter the main lobby. The staff is extremely helpful (since they turned over management) and very friendly. There are multiple elevators, albeit tiny (barely holding 4 people - 2 with luggage), but they are fast. The breakfast spread is amazing and you can either choose the hot option (with everything) or the cold option (continental). Amazing breakfast views on the terrace and floor to ceiling windows.
The rooms are standard European size (smallish) with the Tub located right behind the bed (found that weird). One of the biggest issues we had was with the Air Conditioning. The room that we were in barely had a functionally running AC. despite temperatures being 75F and above, we were not sure that the AC worked or it was super weak. We even told the front desk and they said it was working - NOPE. Because of this, the room felt super warm and muggy.
Other than that, the check in and check out experience was effortless and because the hotel is connected to the train station, this is a good hotel to hop on the train.
I recently stayed at the Radisson Blu in Rome for a three week business trip. This was my third time visiting Italy and second time to Rome. I do not suggest staying at this hotel for such a long duration. The rooms are small and the closet consists of a metal bar with hangers next to the bathroom. This is not ideal for a business traveler. I have spent time at hotels with excellent customer service but I did not experience it at the Radisson. For example, I arrived at the hotel several hours before check-in. I knew I was early but gave my phone number to the front desk and asked them to contact me when my room was available. I spent a few hours outside the hotel and then came back to wait in the lobby until they contacted me. After waiting a while I decided to see the status of my room and found out the room had been available for quite some time. I was never contacted and I would have enjoyed being able to refresh in my room instead of hanging out in the lobby. Usually when spending 3 weeks at a hotel for business, I receive great customer service but never felt like anyone was going out of their way to provide appropriate (not even excellent) customer service. Also, the hotel is located near the train station and is a bit dodgy. I didn't feel it was dangerous but also didn't feel super safe walking around at night.
If you need a place close to the Termini train terminal in Rome, this is your destination. Great staff and facilities. Fun, resort-like pool. Close to all destinations by taxi or train. Just ask the front desk to call your taxi.
