Hotel Eurostars Roma Aeterna is located to the east of ancient Rome, in the neighbourhood Pigneto, which is now one of the city's most active industrial and business centres. The hotel is close to the main places of interest: the basilica of Saint John Lateran, Porta Maggiore, the basilica of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem, the central University campus, La Sapienza.
"Travelers from the USA"
Nice clean hotel..very poor checkin service from Natasha who was very rude had to ask for the manager to intervene, Emmanuel the customer service manager was superb and caring..rooms smaller than advertised no more than 140 sq ft Transportation difficult to tourist attractions..
"Nice hotel, area let's it down"
We have recently returned from our stay in Rome. We had been upgraded to a suite, which was lovely and spacious, however there were a few issues with the room...the toilet wasn't always flushing, the jacuzzi bath did not work and we didn't have the bathrobes we were supposed to get as part of romantic package. The hotel is very clean and tidy itself and breakfast was great (so great we watched a number of people filling their bags full of food ready for the day ahead....why people do this is beyond me, smelling eggs, hot salad that's been carried around half the day...cheapskates) Although out of town a bit it is accessible by a number of buses and tram line right next to the hotel. The area itself isn't the best, we went to the street at the side with the bars and cafes a couple of times, the first time during the day there was a group of grown adults congregated and drinking right beside the cafes and the second time there was a group of undesirable definite drunks who had words with someone and a bottle was thrown that smashed right beside us. They are also drinking first thing in the morning too! The hotel does recommend a local restaurant Il Tempio de Minerva, which was great and sends a free shuttle to come pick you up. Overall, a lovely hotel that I would stay at again...if it was in a different location.
"Great hotel in a little shady location"
Located beside the train tracks, this hotel does not exactly inspire confidence from the outside, but from the inside it is pretty darn nice. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are ginormous with an absolutely fabulous bath/hot tub. Very relaxing indeed. The main train station is a short bus ride away. It is a little far away from most attractions though with the bus service it doesn't seem like a huge deal. We paid for the breakfast and it was filling and had a very good variety. Overall, I highly recommend.
Our stay in Eurostars was very comfortable. The rooms were kitted out with everything we could need and were finished very well. Staff were very friendly and hospitable. The hotel is a walk (20/30 mins) from the centre but we enjoy a walk and were looking for somewhere a tad quieter. There is a lively road (at night) next to the hotel with lots of restaurants and bars which we had amazing pasta in everynight. The noise of the street was not a bother even though our room was very near it.
"Fantastic City break in Rome"
Recently returned home from a great 4 day city break in Rome, staying at the Eurostar's Roma Aeterna. We arrived around 17.00 after a early afternoon flight from Leeds Bradford. The Hotel is easy to reach from Termini central station where we you will most likely be dropped off at if you take the Leonardo express train from Airport to Rome centre, as we did. To reach the hotel from Termini we took the Tram no.14 (You can also use Tram no.5)from outside Termini station to a stop called 'Prenestino' from here the hotel was a short 4min walk. The tram ride from Termini was only 7/8mins. Alternatively, You can take bus 50 or 105 from Termini to a bus stop called 'Ponte Casilino' which is right outside the hotel. I advise you look at google maps to familiarise yourself with the walking routes from the tram/bus stops for reaching the hotel before you travel. from the bus stop the hotel is just across the rail bridge so fairly easy but from the tram stop having an idea of what direction to walk in will help. Upon arriving at the Hotel, we where greeted by a really kind receptionist who spoke good English. He swiftly checked in and issued us with Key card to us Room. We where also offered a welcome drink which was kind. Our Room was on floor 1, It was a Standard twin room with Jacuzzi bath, shower and complimentary toiletries . Also had a TV and FREE to use safe in our room to store us valuables in. The beds where Excellent and comfortable. Our room was also serviced daily by maids who did a fantastic job and would always say 'hello' if they saw you in corridors. On our first night we did find the room a little warm at night and air conditioning didn't appear to work. So we had to sleep with window open which in fairness did the job, but having the Air conditioning working would of been better. saying that we slept very well every night and the beds where very comfortable. Breakfast was Fantastic, was served in the breakfast room on ground floor. It was a Continental buffet breakfast, great quality food and had Coffee machines and juices for drinks. The hotel is very contemporary, clean and modern, it appeared popular with business travellers and tourists. The hotels location is outside the centre of Rome but overall easy enough to reach because as mentioned it's well connected by buses and trams. Technically you could actually walk from the hotel to Termini station in around 20mins so it's by no means miles outside the centre of Rome. The Hotels reception team where great they gave us a map and helped with navigating around the city. The Hotel also offers Free Wi-Fi which we found worked really well, Wi-Fi could be picked up all over hotel including the rooms. They is a fantastic pedestrianized promenade behind the hotel with lots of bars and restaurants to grab a drink or some food at. We would pop down there every night for some drinks. All very well priced too as it was a bit outside the centre of Rome. Some useful info. They is an ATM machine just across the road from the hotel if you need any Euros. Most mornings we would catch bus 50 or 105 from outside the hotel to access the centre of Rome. The bus stop is just on other side of road. All bus stops in Rome have bus information and routing on them to give you an idea of what bus to take to get where etc. When we arrived at Termini on our first day we purchased a 72hour travel card from the ticket machines which was very useful as it means you can Travel on bus, Metro and Trams unlimited amount of times for the selected length of time on ticket. You can also buy travel cards for shorter amounts of time such as 24 and 48hours. Remember you only need to validate day and multiple day travel cards once. To validate your tickets on Trams and buses look for the validating machines on board. Validating machines put a time and date stamp on your ticket. They are no validating machines on metro train's as the ticket barriers at the entrance to all metro stations will automatically validate and stamp them for you on first use. Additionally, Rome is a very walkable city and most places can be reached on foot. Although public transport does have its use's. Use the Leonardo express to get them airport to centre as it's quickest way to get to and from airport but again remember to validate rail ticket Cost is 14euro per person per way. They is coaches from Termini to Airport which although are cheaper they are likely to get caught up in traffic and do take longer. I would certainly return to this hotel in the future.
