Great location, peacefull and close to Vaticano and main atractions around. Very confortable room with interesting decoration related to music. Great sound in the room and the bathroom. Generous and delicious breakfast either inside or, specially, outside in the garden. Very recommendable.
The sound system and tv are amazing as is the huge shower in room 105 and the glitter ball!!
Its on bus routes 23 and 70 which take you into the centre. Friends stayed more central though so it was slightly out of the way if you dont like walking.
Excellent location, a few minutes-walk to Vatican. Ask at the reception for a good restaurant nearby. Choose your CD from the very good selection available in the lobby and enjoy listening in your room!
We had a great experience. The mood of the place was relaxed, friendly, comfortable and hip. Not a major through street in front, so city traffic was quiet. Small number of rooms meant personal service. Great daily breakfast--breads, cereals, fruits, meats, coffee to order. Excellent restaurants two blocks walk from hotel in several directions. Staff was fantastic; friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, hard working. Would definitely stay there again.
No fitness facilities. Limited lounging/reading spaces, no coffee/beer bar on premises.
The hotel atmosphere
How far out of the centre the hotel is
The staff were very helpful and it was lovely falling asleep to music. The shower was great, water pressure was fantastic.
Like the design that even speaker in bathroom, enjoy music everywhere. Staff are friendly and helpful.
It's 15 minutes walk to the nearest metro station.
What a great place to stay , the staff were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful, nothing was to much trouble. The hotel and room were very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. I would certainly go back.
This was a great hotel, and so much fun! The music theme, with snare drum nightstands, blue light disco ball in the bathroom, in-room CD player and library, was lots of fun. The facilities were excellent overall as well, and the staff was outstanding...very helpful, friendly, and efficient! It's a bit out of the way, but in a very quiet area with restaurants and shops in the vicinity and about 6-7 blocks to the Metro. We would definitely stay here again on a visit to Rome.
Nice and quite with helpful, friendly staff. Garden patio connecting to the eating room was very nice and convenient. The breakfast was wonderful.
I had prebooked the room atleast 3 months in advance with a reduced rate but the hotel did not have the record from Booked.net that it was to be prepaid. My records which I showed them did have me prebooked. The hotel did reverse the extra charges but unfortunately when that happens on your credit card you loose on the exchange rate. Other than that the stay was wonderful.
The spa bath in the bathroom and the private patio.
The fact that they specifically call it the feel of sound hotel and u can't listen to the designer bang an olfsen sound system because they have it mounted on the wall and the noise travels straight through into the room next door.
Everything was very clean and tidy nothing to moan about. Staff were very friendly and rooms were lovely.
I stayed in this hotel with my partner due to the good value of the hotel. We were not expecting the hotel to be as nice as it was. The staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was delicious with plenty to choose from. The music theme was subtle and well done. Only a 8min walk from the Vatican so an excellent location. Excellent stay!
The only problem that people might have is that the walls were a bit thin so if you're staying, make sure you do not have a room beside the lift.
The hotel is extremely clean and the staff friendly and efficient. Clean sheets and towels each day were most welcome. Breakfast is very good for this style of hotel. This is our second visit to the Franklin.
Wish more coffee was served with breakfast or had tea/coffee facilities in the room.
The hotel had a really cool decor and the staff was really friendly and helpful. It was about a 15 minute walk from the vatican museum and it was very close to the bus and metro station.
The bed was moderately comfortable and pillows were pretty hard. Otherwise, it was great.
