We were staying Arcadia Hotel in Rome for a week. And it turned out to be a good choice of the hotel. The transport system is good and very cheap (£1 per journey), so we didn't suffer from the hotel location. And savings were huge comparing with the hotels in city centre! Stuff is English-speaking, very friendly and helpful. The breakfast (cereals, bread, butter, cheese, cake + drinks) was only dissapointing thing. But advantage was a family-run pizzeria next to the hotel which was open till late and made a good cheap pizza :) Collapse

This hotel was the most basic hotel I have ever stayed in. There was no tea facilities, the breakfast was ham, croissants I cereal and bread. No toaster for toast. The television was only in Italian and broke they had to fix it. The microwave was dirty inside and we had to ask the boy to clean it. There was graffiti all around the walls outside. The only place to have dinner was outside above the hotel , which had broken windows and graffiti around. The lady on duty was nice and apologised said it was a problem in the area. In Rome it was dirty rubbish overflowing out of the bins. Graffiti all over the shop doorways. The saving grace was that I had my disabled brother, who is Down syndrome with me. We never had to pay to see the attractions, use the nude or wait in cues. They are disable friendly. I always wanted to see Italy, but was so disappointed with how dirty it was. I complained to teletextholidays but no answer. The hotel cost £575 for 5 days. If you go to Rome try to stay in Rome itself. We were a long way from Rome. We had to take a bus 2 metros sixteen stops then 3 to get there. Coming home we were packed like sardines and some one thought he would try his luck at robbing me and my brother, but I moved away quickly. There are soldiers with rifles and police with guns in the stations. On high alert. Been there done that never again. Italy clean your country up. Collapse

Almost an hour away by bus & Metro, and the bus comes only once every 40-60 minutes… The breakfast is nothing worth waiting for, and the place itself is dull. The only good thing is the excellent Pizza across the street. not recommended at all.

This hotel sounded great when I made the booking but when we arrived it was a different story. It's dull and in bad need of an overhaul. There are walls filled in and not re painted. The bathroom was filthy and the toilet wouldn't flush on the first night. The breakfast was terrible. Pre packaged toast. Cold stale croissants with icing on them and stale cereal. There is a fridge in the bedroom but was filthy. Wouldnt even put water in it. The hotel is approx 1 hour by bus and rail to the city centre. Well worth paying a little extra to stay closer and nicer. Collapse

The Arcadia is not the Ritz!! Having said that, Vivien & I found this the ideal ‘launch pad’ for exploring everything that Rome has to offer – and that’s a lot! The hotel rooms are basic but clean & functional. You will not find a kettle because of strict Italian Health & Safety rules. – This applies to most hotels. On the upside, there is a fridge, great for beers and a spot of home catering!! The reception staff are probable the best we’ve ever come across. Their English is great, they are really friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble – they even have a corkscrew handy, in case you buy a bottle of wine with a cork – and all of the bottles in the supermarket seemed to have a cork!! Breakfast is served from 7am until 10am and is the typical continental style. Possibly an additional option to cornflakes would be good. There is an excellent supermarket virtually underneath the hotel. Just go out of the reception entrance, turn right, go up the steps on your right, walk straight across to the steps down, turn left and there you are!! To get into the city is so easy, both of us being a right pair of ‘country bumkins’ and not having used any form of public transport for many years, thought this to be a tad daunting – How wrong we were!! – After just one day of ‘commuting’ we felt like seasoned Romans!!! A good idea is to buy a couple of ‘Metrobus’ tickets per person at the hotel reception. (one to get into the city and one to get back @ 1.5 Euros each) Each ticket will give you 100 minutes of travel. Just outside the hotel, catch the 506 bus ( Reception will give you the bus times) to the bus park at Anagnina. The buses run approximately every 40 minutes. You need to ‘validate’ your ticket on the bus. There is a yellow box on board into which you insert your ticket, this ‘stamps’ the time on it. At Anagnina, follow everyone else and walk the 200 metres or so to the Metro (tube) station, insert your ticket to open the gate and jump on!! Anagnina is at the start of the ‘red’ line, so you can only go in one direction! The first stop we made was at ‘Barbarini’ which took us to the Trevi Fountain. Again, the Arcadia staff will provide and explain a map of the area. Everything was going fine until, the Friday afternoon before we were due to fly back to Manchester, we received a text from Ryanair, telling us that, thanks to the Italian union which governs Air Traffic Control, our return flight was cancelled because they were having a strike!! In total, Ryanair had cancelled 109 flights that Saturday morning. Imagine the thousands of people who had had their holidays disrupted. TIP! – Make sure you have a mobile phone and that your airline has the number, otherwise you will know nothing about any problems, until you’ve checked out and arrived at the airport. In this case, an iPad also proved more than useful. However, despite all the hassle of finding a return flight home on webchat with Ryanair, an extra two nights at the Arcadia was no problem at all. Apparently, the Italian Unions are very good at striking, so it may be a good idea to allow a few extra days after you are due to return, and if you are on any medication, make sure you have a plentiful supply. If you fly with Ryanair, don’t expect there to be a ‘rescue package’!! – because there isn’t!!! The best that they could do was two days later to Stansted, instead of Manchester! Unfortunately, there do not seem to be many other airlines using Ciampino airport, so taking the option of a refund, was pretty much pointless!! The Arcadia staff were brilliant, allowing me to check in and print out new boarding passes on their PC & printer, not to mention finding and booking our train tickets from Stansted to Manchester. Visiting Rome is an amazing experience, and you could do a lot worse than using the ‘Arcadia’ as your ‘base’. Collapse

Rome is the most beautiful and amazing city I've ever visited, it's so full of history and amazing views, culture, museums, sculptures, buildings & nature! However sadly the same can't be said for the hotel! Here are some major negatives; 1) Outside looks HORRIBLE 2) Inside is SO basic & old & horrible, ZERO COMFORT 3) Hotel is so far from the city centre 4) It's one not so regular 20/30 minute bus ride to metro then another 15-45mins metro journey to certain parts of the centre 5) Tax is added onto your room at the end of the stay PER Person PER Night!! We went in for valentines 2014. All in all it works out more expensive booking this very bad hotel rather than booking a slightly more expensive hotel in the city centre! LOVE Rome and would definitely go back just would never ever go back to this hotel!! Collapse
