The Hotel Beldes is located in the center of Rome right next to the Lepanto Metro stop, between Piazza San Pietro and Piazza di Spagna, in the residential area only 500 meters from the great shopping district of Via Cola di Rienzo.
All the major attractions such as San Pietro and the Vatican Musuems with the Sistine Chapel, Piazza di Spagna and via dei Condotti, Trevi Fountain, the colusseum, the IL Foro Romano e la dolce vita di Via Veneto are all close by.
Hotel was clean, stylish and good value for money. Breakfast was what you'd expect from the price but was still perfectly acceptable. rooms were small but cosy and the same with the bathroom. The only problem with the hotel was the staff were not very friendly.Comment of W. Jack , United Kingdom the 2016-11-12
"Small hotel but a good one"
The entrance of the hotel is very narrow, but if you find it you will enjoy the hotel. The personal of the hotel is kindly. Rooms are clean and beautiful arranged. The breakfast is very consistent. The location is central, you can walk or go by bus to the most important sightseeing in the city.
"Good place to explore Rome from"
As a professor for a US university I've brought my students to this facility for the past 4 years. The location is excellent (10 minute walk to the Vatican), the management is very attentive and the rooftop cafe offers a nice place to have breakfast. There is a handy espresso bar next door, a mercato (grocery store) 5 minutes away, ATMs within a short walk and the Lepanto subway stop is less than a block away. You're in the Prati district of Rome which is a more residential, and authentic, Roman neighborhood. If you're looking for basic amenities, in a convenient location, with good service, this is a good choice.
I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. Firstly we booked through a tour company who told us it was a 4 star hotel - this it is definitely not. It is a 3 star hotel and looks and feels like a 3 star hotel. When we checked in at 4pm we were shown to our room which had not been made up yet - surely one of the basics is to check whether the room has actually been made up before taking your new guests through. As the room was not ready we were then shown to another room which was apparently a superior room (the first room being a standard). There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the superior room (but there were in the standard room). As it was quite warm we tried to put the aircon on but it did not switch on - on enquiry at reception we were told the aircon is only switched on in July as it is not hot enough in May to run the aircon - surely this would be the guests decision as to whether they require the aircon or not' I do agree with a previous reviewer that the pictures of this hotel and its rooms on the website definitely do not match up! No bar and no lounge area. The breakfast was also sold to us as a full breakfast (again by the tour company not the hotel) and it definitely is not a full breakfast - no hot meal available. There was very little fresh fruit available, every day the offering was tinned fruit. On the plus side the metro station is within easy walking distance as is the Vatican City. However, if you are in Rome to do all the other historical sites it would probably be better to stay over the Tiber river in a more central location. There are loads of restaurants around the hotel, we ate out about 4 times in the area and each one was fabulous.
"Good for a budget citytrip"
We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights, the price was very good and photo's looked great. The hotel is what you'd expect from a 3 star hotel. The location is very good and easy to reach by metro. It's at walking distance from Vatican and piazza del popolo. There are a lot of great restaurants and shops nearby. However, the rooms are not really what you see in the photo's of the hotel. Our room was in another building, so we had to walk to the main building for breakfast. The roof terrace at the main building is great and has a lovely view. The breakfast was ok, but around the corner are a lot of great places to eat a way better breakfast! The room we stayed in was clean, but also old and used. For the price this hotel was good, compared to others. It's a ok hotel for a small budget citytrip!
"Overbooked and broken Aircondition"
First night we arrived at 01.00, We were told there was a problem with our prebooked and prepaid room (5 months). The transfer taxi took us to another hotell with less standard for the first night. The day after we had to walk with our luggage for two blocks over old bumby sidewalks to get to our "real" hotel. First night our AC didnt work but they fixed it the second day. But it lasted 24 hours then it broke down again and it was to late in the evening to get it fixed for the last night. I will never stay there again.
