            It is conveniently located.

            Rooms are small. My first one was a closet with a cot!

          • Group of friends

            Despite recieving a confrimation of our booking, they did not know we were coming and the check in procedure took a very long time as the desk clerk made calls and found us a room. He was quite rude. This also happened to the freinds we were meeting who had a separate booking.

            everything. I think they must put attention more for cleaness

            Arriving very early in roma from the airport (around 7am) we were very grateful that hotel staff let us check in early (as check in time was around 12 or 2pm).. So we could freshen up and explore rome. Breakfast is complimentary and nice.. We had our breakfast on the rooftop every morning. The hotel is convenient for all sites to walk to... Next to the river, if you follow it... You can't get lost finding the hotel in rome. And the hotel is near piazza nuovo.

            The showers... Not sure why.. But it gets cold later in the day. So if you want a good shower... Have it first thing in the morning before breakfast.

            The room we had was large for European standards and breakfast on the rooftop is an outstanding way to start your day in Rome. We have stayed at 2 of the Leonardi hotels in Rome and their consistent quality will ensure we return!

            The location is excellent, the breakfast and the view are also exquisite. The staff was very helpful.

            The electricity plugs are insufficient and a bit old. It can be a bit noisy, if your room faces the main street.

            The location is excellnt, barely 100 yards to the north end of Piazza Navona. In spite of the busy area and constant traffic, our rooms were quiet---the only sound we heard were sea gulls one morning. The front desk staff was superb; they were exceptionally and unfailingly helpful, cooperative, and pleasant. They arranged transfer to the airport, made a restaurant reservation, and patiently answered any questions we had. I will be visitng Rome again in October and will be staying in Hotel Genio again. I have no reservations (no pun intended) about staying here again.

            The Location was good, as was the views from the roof terrace. Plenty of towels and soaps shower gels. There is a left luggage room, (no very secure) though. Plenty of retaurants in the area nice little coffee shop next door run by a Podge and Rodge type couple of old fellas.. Good bus services. Mini bar not overly expensive for hotels.

            It was very noisy from the outside traffic / people, it was also very noisey from the inside, we could hear conversations from other rooms while in your own room and while walking past doors, the next door room could be heard in the toilet and shower. The chamber maid just walked in without checking if we were there. We requested a nice room with a balcony or view, got neither. There is free wifi but very slow, enough to check flights etc. a lot of black damp spots in the bathroom very hard to get shower temperature right too hot / too cold. There is a left luggage room, (unsecure) Do not hire a car, nowhere to park. A/c there but not working, room hot even without radiators on.
