            For the most part the staff was as helpful and friendly as they could be given our issues below and the location was very close to the main train station which was important to us.

            What I did not like was that the hotel was not really air conditioned and I believe used a central system that was quite weak and did not cool down the room. So at night the temperature for me was quite unbearably warm. I noticed that in many hotels in italy the a/c did take a while to cool down the room but here it never really succeeded. For this reason I could not feel I could recommend this hotel as temp control and comfort is very important to me in warm and humid climates. Also the put out coffee in the room and made it seem complementary but turned out not to be (small issue but made it feel like they were nickel and diming you)

            Staff were very friendly. Spoke great English. Breakfast was really nice. Lovely fresh pastries.

            Rooms are vey dark. Views onto other rooms. Stayed twice and on second occasion room was rather cramped and bathroom old and shabby. Having to pay a couple of Euros for a tea bag and a tiny drop of milk for the tea. So petty. Include it in the price for goodness sake.

            We loved our stay at Hotel Rex, excellent location, close to Termini railway station. We walked to most of the tourist highlights, and found many extra highlights along the way. Breakfast satisfactory, great cappuccino. Room very comfortable, a little expensive for this quality hotel. Free Internet access. Front desk - excellent. I would stay again.

            1 lift didnt work, but this happens from time to time, no problem.

            Kindness of the staff, free wifi comfortable room

            Breakfast room and breakfast choice, the fact that the kettle kit is not included in the room price, it is not at all a matter of money since it is only 1.50 euro but it is written nowhere that it is not included and on the bag there is written "just for you" as on the biscuits, making guests think that it is for free. And I think that a 4 stars hotel can allow to offer a cup of tea to his guests... We were very happy with the hotel till when they asked for the kettle kit when we left us with really a bad taste of the hotel at the end of our staying... And this only to gain 1.50 euro...

            The personal approach and the little extras (PS2, DVDs, free WIFI) made it, especially for the kids, a very nice stay. Seeing The Gladiator on DVD in the room after a visit of the Colloseum, was a bonus!

            It's not a real four star Hotel, but the service and conditions were pretty good. I strongly recomend it.

            Friendly staff who spoke English. Great location, near the Termini and Metro. Comfortable rooms with plenty of space. Nice breakfast with plenty of choice and plenty to eat.

            Not on this stay, but I wonder if there is air conditioning as I expect the rooms could be stuffy in the summer months

            The personal touches like welcome notes in the room upon arrival. Staff were very helpful. Changing the day of the week in the lift carpets was a cool touch too. The room was of great quality and location was brilliant - being really close to Termini station.

            I like their location and kindness of the staff.

            The room is very small and facility is very basic, considering the 4 star hotel level, this one has been overrated.

            Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Overall it was excellent value for money for a break in the centre of Rome.

            The room was fabulous, very spacious, very clean, incredibly welcoming. We had everything we needed, and more. The staff were friendly, warm, helpful, pleasant, honest. We would stay again gladly. We have a 3 year old child, he loved staying there, very appropriate for families with children. Definitely a great hotel.
