Some would call the Hotel Selene an ideal base for surfing the capital of Italy thanks to the very advantageous location. Being a 3-star property, the Hotel Selene is very comfortable and offers many modern comforts and high quality services at competitive rates.

The Hotel Selene is located not far from the Via del Viminale and opposite the Teatro dell Opera. The hotel is near to the Termini Station, so the connection to the public transport is never a problem for the guests.

Either staying for the vacation or on a business trip you will always find your destination being not far away from your hotel which is extremely important while having limited amount of time. Less than a 20-minute walk will easily get you to the Coliseum and the Roman Forum. Other sights not far as well are the antique Presidential Palace, Government Treasury and the Quirinale.

The room interiors are bright and spacious, with elegant classical furniture. Marble bathrooms with tub and shower are cozy and will make you feel at home right away.

While saving money have an enjoyable stay at the hospitable Hotel Selene.

      Fantastic decor in rooms - truly Tuscan style! Breakfast was great.

      Morning hotel staff were friendly and helpful. They helped me find places on a map and helped me navigate the bus system. The hotel is located 2-3 minute walk to a main train stop and bus stop; which made getting to/from places easier. Although the Opera is close by, it was closed and under construction.

      More expensive for what I expected. The pictures on the website are deceiving and the hotel does not look like anything you see on the website. My bed and pillows were hard as a board. I thought at time that sleeping on the floor would be more comfortable. The hotel appears to be down a bad street, but many cafes and hotels are located on the same street with many people.

      The thing I have liked best is the location: near Roma Termini, Opera, park and many little restaurants with tables on the sidewalks. The breakfasts were good and the information given by the staff has always been appreciable.

      The only thing I have disliked is the cleanliness of the floor of the bathroom.

      Good location. Staff seemed friendly.

      Room had brown curtains, brown bed cover, everything seemed to be in brown. Made the room appear dark. I had a double room and it was too small for one person. I didn't like Hotel Serene very much. I wouldn't go back.

      The staff was great (all of them), the breakfast was good! I read the reviews about the breakfast before going and so it was a nice surprise, I guess they have made an effort.

      This hotel was close to the termini train station and to some sites. The breakfast was a nice inclusion in the price with a good selection of food.

      I think the confusion about the advertised wi fi inclusion in the price was disappointing to find out it wasn't really included based on the way the room was booked. We had to pay extra. Not necessarily about the price but the need to communicate with family members hassel free would have been nice. There was a problem with the connection as well.

      location an easy walk from train station, and walking distance to trevi fountain and the colosseum, nice area with plenty of option for dining out on any budget.

      lift not working at times, apparently it is a regular occurrance.
