Ancient wonders and Renaissance masterpieces greet you at every turn in the Eternal City, a capital few can match for majesty and romance. You could spend a lifetime trawling its fascinating catacombs, churches and museums, or simply while away the afternoons in sunlit piazzas with a gelato or carafe of local wine.
Smooth Hotel Rome Termini is a cool new addition to Rome’s hotel scene, boasting ultra-sleek, modern and cream-hued rooms within a 19th-century building. Each morning you can tuck into a delicious buffet breakfast of sweet and savory delicacies and pick up local tips from the helpful concierge at the 24-hour front desk.
The city is your oyster thanks to the hotel’s great location. A 15-minute stroll will see you gazing at the golden interiors of the Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels and the Martyrs, relaxing in the beautiful Villa Borghese gardens or surveying mosaics at the Baths of Diocletian. Terme Diocleziano station is also close by, meaning everything else this incredible city has to offer is just a short metro ride away.
Among sleek mirrors and angular, minimalist furniture, the contemporary, soundproofed rooms feature flashes of color from Rothko art prints. Choose between the 170-square-foot Classic room or the 215-square-foot Superior room, both featuring comfy king-sized beds and private bathrooms with rainfall showers.

A buffet breakfast is served each morning, allowing you to fuel up on Italian coffee, cakes and other goodies before hitting the sights. When it comes to lazy lunches and romantic dinners, Rome has endless options for all tastes; enjoy homemade pasta in the cozy neighborhood trattorias, gourmet cuisine at the international fine-dining restaurants or antipasti and aperitivi in the bustling bars.
The hotel is centrally located, with the Villa Borghese gardens and Roma Termini Railway Station both easily within reach. Luckily, many of Rome’s must-sees are within walking distance, including the 16th-century gatehouse of Porta Pia and the Spanish Steps. On the way to these sublime sights, you’re likely to stumble upon dazzling piazzas or baroque fountains – not to mention a plethora of bars and cafés. Other world-famous spots, such as the Vatican or Pantheon, are a short bus or Metro ride away.
How to Get There
Booked through Secret Escapes we got a great deal on our stay at Smooth. We were greeted with welcome drinks, free use of a Samsung smart phone and breakfast included.
Our room was clean, modern and bright. It was slightly on the small side but as we were only in Rome for 3 nights this was manageable. My only criticism of the room was the lack of storage for our large suitcase, meaning we had to walk over it to reach the bathroom.
Food at breakfast was a simple European buffet but with lots of options to keep us full for the morning. There wasn't much to eat for gluten free individuals but if you like fruit and yoghurt you'll be fine.
The staff on reception were friendly and superb at helping us navigate our way through the city. From restaurant recommendations to tips on taking the metro, they were able to answer all of our questions.
Overall, I'd recommend this hotel for a short city break but for longer stays you may want to book somewhere a little more luxurious, or just get a bigger room.
Picked this hotel based on the price and the reviews. Was not disappointed. The hotel was convenient for the train station from the airport. It was in a quiet location about 30 mins walk from all the sights. The hotel itself was just as all the reviews had said, great staff, smart well appointed rooms, buffet breakfast which I thought was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would stay here again.
The service was great. The staff helped us a lot with getting around in Rome and confirming our tours. Great breakfast with lots of choices. Clean hotel and modern. The Free cellphone you get to take during your stay is awesome!!
Stayed one night pre cruise and really enjoyed. Cool, clean, comfortable room. Friendly staff at reception and serving drinks on terrace. Great location for central areas and walkable to Coliseum and Trevi Fountain. Good breakfast too. Would definitely stay again.
The hotel is a short walk from Termini, which is handy, but its quite a long walk to the main tourist attractions. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are clean and well-equipped and the breakfast was good.
