The staffs are nice, do not speak English well other then front desk. This is tourist part of city, show have staffs that can assist guest that understand English, it is not easy to communicate doing breakfast, when ask for expresso or more foods. Lack of communication, the room wasn’t as well kept, again the staffs don’t understand much at all. It’s nice but could be better.

Dear Guest, I am sorry for the difficulties of communication you encountered about communication at the breakfast. I do not know exactly dates and duration of your stay, on the lst weeks we have someone of the breakfast staff was in vacation, and some of the persons workng at the breakfast to replace them does not speak English fluently. But that was a particular circumstance, for a limited time and dates. However, every day there is some who speaks English even at the breakfast and if you had expressed your riqurement, I am sure they could satisfy you. As you can see, checking other reviews, yours has been a situation really unusual. Regarding the room, we work continuosly with the best attention to keep our rooms in the best condtions, both for cleaness and for mantainace. If you had informed our Concierge, we could fix easily solve the problem. We will pay even more attention to avoid similar situations in the future. Thanks for your comment, kind regards

Average hotel / Great Service

Pros: Breakfast. Staff.
Location: Near the subway.
The hotel was average however the staff was excellent. The concierge was very helpful as was the desk staff. The breakfast was great. The hotel is older and the area is somewhat questionable but we come from a rural area. Nice terrace on the top floor. The a/c was so so.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your appreciation regarding our staff and our breakfast. Regarding your comment about the hotel itself, I wish to underline that the hotel is in good conditions, and I wonder if you asked our staff about the A/C. Probably it was a minor malfunction, easy solvable. Regarding the area, just yesterday I walked across the center of Rome, and I found that the area around the hotel, for many aspects, is better than many others. In many areas there are too many souvenirs, ice-cream, fast-food open, no any shop for resident, no any handcraft laboratory. Esquilino, that is the name of the ancient district where the Hotel Napoleon is located, still keep its indentity, with good quality of restaurants, shops, and habitants. The evidences? getting back to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, approximately at 6:00 p.m., I saw people who carried the dog for a walk ( residents!) , walking along via dello Statuto, two of the most famous patisseries of Rome, (Regoli and Amore), Roscioli, in via Buonarroti, the best bakery of Rome .... and what about restaurants? difficult naming all of them, all offering the best cookery with honest prices, no traps for tourist! That is Rome, maybe with many defects, but still alive and authentic. I would be happy to have a chance of showing better what I have described above, if you would jìkindly give us another chance. with muy kindest regards

Nice hotel

Pros: Location - quality of service and amenities. TVs in every room, a beautiful lounge area, great breakfasts.
Cons: Some rooms had showers that splashed all over the bathroom - must be an Italian thing because I've seen it many times in other hotels as well.
Location: Close to the subway - Termini Station is one stop away and from there you can catch subways on the A & B lines or trains and buses to wherever.
Friendly staff. Close (30 feet) from subway stop. Owner had a wine and cheese-tasting event free of charge twice in the week we were there.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your nice review. Regarding the shower, I do not have any report of malfunction of any shower, but maybe there is an explication. In Italy, but also in other European countries, hotels have an high numer of bathrooms with bathtub. Because preferences of many Guests , like you, nowadays are for shower, many hotels have installed glass on the bathtub to make possible to use bathtub like a shower. If you had requested a room with shower, we had been happy to satisfy you.We look forward to your next stay, of course, in a room with shower, With my kindest regards

Best of the best hotel!!

Pros: It is hard to select one over the other as the hotel is excellent overall.
Location: One stop from Rome's main train station with front doors of the hotel at the exit of the train station-restaurants, park, church across street
The entire staff of the hotel are among the best ambassadors that Rome would want- friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. I felt welcome and treated as a family. This was a birthday related trip and it was the best decision. One the day of my birthday, I was greeted with Happy Birthday and upon my return after my day tour there was a bouquet of fresh flowers in my room. The airline lost my luggage for two days and when delivered it was placed in my room. They are caring and understanding. Hotel is conveniently located at the exit of the train station and one stop away from Rome's main train station. It is within walking location of many attractions, restaurants, park, etc. The hotel is very clean with very beautiful décor.

Really nice hotel, and great price!

Pros: I really liked the large selection at breakfast, the lounge rooms and the friendly and helpful staff.
Location: The colosseum is a 10 min walk, 10 min to Termini station, metro right in front of hotel.
We loved staying at the Napoleon Hotel! We stayed for 3 nights. Its not in the most interesting part of town, but its right in front of the metro, which was super convenient for getting around, and in a quiet neighborhood, which was nice at night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a nice size, with a mini fridge, big windows and a tv. Breakfast had a lot of options and was my favorite part about staying here. We really also enjoyed the lounge rooms which made it comfortable when waiting for family. And the decor was a good mixture of modern with the antiques that you'd expect when you visit Rome. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Lovely Hotel Centrally Located in Rome

Pros: We liked the ambiance and old world charm.
Cons: The rooms are a bit small but true to European size and style.
My husband and I loved our two nights at the Napoleon Hotel in May 2017. The staff is welcoming and accommodating; the decor is beautifully artistic, quaint and charming; the seating areas throughout the hotel are inviting and comfortable; the breakfast is enormous with all kinds of choices, and the location is safe and provides good walking conditions with shops and facilities nearby. We also met some amiable other fellow travelers who enriched our experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and hope to stay there again. It was a great place to relax after a ten-day cruise and land tour throughout Italy.
