      Individual guest reviews

      • Best of all, the bus was about 1 block away, as was the tram and the little shops along Via Porta Maggiore was good for picking up snacks. The hotel was extremely clean and our greeting upon entering the lobby was great. The staff were friendly and giovanni and the owner Carols were very pleasant and helpful. Beds were comfortable and the continental breakfast was decent.

        Location is out of no and away from all the attraction sites, the front room was inconstruction for I assume is a tiny elevator.

      • Near the train station, the Colliseum just a short distance away and good tram, bus, and metro service. The Donatello' was lovely, the price was great too and fantastic staff were exceedingly helpful. The bed was comfy and breakfast was fine.

        Bad location, worst Hotel Ive ever stayed at.

      • The location is not bad and the hotel is close to the bus stop and metro and was comfortable. The staff is amazing here, the room you eat in is lovely and the complementary breakfast is kind of bleh.

        No washcloths, just a small towel for shower, not a good choice and encouraged conversation in our limited Italian.

      • The location is very good, Rome is lovely and as for the staff, I'd say depends on you are lucky enough to have at the front desk. Rooms are very clean, for us, Americans, its weird to use a sheet to dry off and breakfast is a big let down. The owner is friendly.

        Worst area possible and the Hotel Donatello was picked for us by a friend as is fairly cheap, central. Internet is not free here.

      • Great view from window and near bus. Lovely little new hotel and good price. Just across the road, staff were helpful and bathroom was also clean and nice.

        Not the best location, most of our taxi fares were less than ten Euros and breakfast was really poor.
