    Great

    Very good room service, always clean after returning to the hotel. Air conditioning cools damn well, but just right in this heat.

    breakfast

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    - Breakfast is simple and sweet - expandable! Little choice . But nobody starves to death. . - little "life" around the hotel (business etc.). - Bar is missing at the hotel

  • 6.6
    Nice

    Rooms were nice and clean. Personnel really very nice

    I don't give so many points because the breakfast was really not good and not enough choice and directly in front of the hotel the garbage cans were not really good in summer.

    - nice, clean room. - friendly staff

    Perfect

    The hotel's great. There's nothing to complain about.

    The location of the hotel is ok. Metro is situated kilometers away. With this bus network one should have a lot of patience, so better use the metro.

    Great

    Caravel is an affordable hotel that is one bus ride away from major activities. The front desk staff was pleasant and professional. The rooms were clean and included breakfast was good with various fruit, pastries, beverages, and types of protein. The hotel restaurant served quality food that was affordable. There is a coffee shop next door that is not open during the weekend and a dinner restaurant a few doors away that serves great local food. The neighborhood is middle class and it was great to be around locals instead of tourists. I plan to stay here again.

    clean, comfortable rooms affordable breakfast included reasonably priced restaurant away from tourists - more of a local feel access to bus/public transit. friendly staff

    must travel 2 - 3 miles to major sites

  • 7.4
    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.

    Perfect

    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.

    Great

    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.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    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....

    Great

    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

  • 6.2

    Breakfast offered was not good. Due to renovation work going on, the way to stair was not clean

    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

  • 6.6
    Nice

    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
