    Very good

    The hotel is good value for the location and cost. Anything closer to the attractions is much more. One bus takes you downtown. The cleanning staff is very thorough and good. The buffet breakfast is decent.

    It is however a noisy place and the walls are paper thin.

    The breakfast was great and the rooms brand new recently renovated. 20 minutes walk from Colosseo. free sat tv and in room valuables safe box. Great restaurant in the same block and easy access by bus or underground. The Staff were good and willing to help. Would hope to stay there again soon.

    Superb

    Had slept very well despite the ongoing refurbishment (which was made known to me at the time of booking). Could only notice works being carried out wheb at reception. Rooms were spotless & comfortable. Bathroom was spacious and hot water was constant. The only slight problem was the basin plug kept dropping to the bottom meaning that after washing, you would end up with a pool of water still left in the basin, however, this was fixed when brought to their attention. Breakfast was simple & continental but with plenty of choice in terms of food & drink. Staff were helpful & knowledgeable of the local area. Location was good also as quite a few of the tourist sites were a short bus ride away. Free 30 minute use of Internet was useful also. All in all, we enjoyed our stay at the Caravel hotel & would not hesitate in recommending it to family & friends.

    Superb

    Loved the new decore of the rooms; we went whilst it was still under construction but the new rooms were amazing and the location was superb..

    Because we went when it was user construction the wifi and wired Internet was not available in the rooms...there was only a shared computer that had access to Internet. Also, the buffet breakfast did not have much variety of items to choose from so it got boring pretty quickly....

    Superb

    The hotel is being renovated now but this makes no discomfort for the clients. The room was excellent as well as the bathroom! The breakfast was included into the price,.

    The metro is 1500 meters from the hotel around 15-20 minutes of walk

    Fabulous

    The Hotel Caravel offers the good facilities and the comfort of 3-star in Rome, just a 10 minute walk from Garbatelle Metro Station. Rooms are with air conditioning, TV, and a mini fridge. Clean hotel but with old furniture.

    TV is without satellite channels

    Good

    the hotel's location is good and easy to access the city centre by buses. The staff was good in general but one staff was not.

    The worst thing of the hotel is Internet, we must pay EUR 2.5/ hour and Internet was going Very Slowly, sometimes it crashed... the worst thing I ever met

    Very good

    Very clean room, well supplied with towels every day, very helpful personnel, nice and plentiful breakfast. No problems with utilities or any other in general.

    The hotel was undergoing renovations at the time we stayed, but only in the middle of the day when we were out in the city so there was no problem.

    15 min. from metro by foot or 5 by bus. 3 or 4 metro stations from the Colisseum.

    I asked for non-smoking room, but it was a smoking and the smell was not good.The breakfast is really poor.
