  • Close to Piazza della Repubblica, Termini train station, and the Opera
  • Classically decorated rooms with mini-fridges and air-conditioning 
  • Free breakfast buffet including ham, cheese, and pastries
  • Bar serving coffee and cocktails
  • Small pets allowed
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Guests complain about bathrooms being less than clean
  • Wi-Fi is inconsistent and limited to one device 
  • Some rooms have old, tube-style TVs
  • No gym or on-site parking

Bottom Line

The best thing about Giglio Dell’ Opera is its convenient location near the Piazza della Repubblica and the Termini train station. The homey mid-range hotel has 61 rooms with classic charm, but some rooms have tube-style TVs, iffy Wi-Fi, and bathrooms that could use more attention to cleanliness. There’s no full restaurant on-site, but there’s a bar and a parlor where guests can enjoy a coffee or cocktail. Breakfast is free but has limited options. Guests may want to consider Hotel Camelia, a mid-range hotel that's near Termini train station and, while somewhat pricer, has fresher rooms.

Scene

Homey, mid-range hotel with large parlor done in classic decor 

Giglio Dell’ Opera resides in a beautiful building built in 1897. Standing five stories tall, the pale-peach structure has classically arched windows, wrought-iron window bars, and ornate carvings. Inside the glass doors, red ropes flank the marble steps covered in red carpeting, which guests must walk up to reach the reception area, an open room with a rounded wooden front desk, an elegant chandelier, polished wooden floors, and a few antique pieces of furniture. The breakfast buffet is served in a simply decorated room with terra-cotta tile floors and small round tables with white and blue tablecloths. Guests can order a cappuccino or cocktail from the small bar and enjoy it while seated on a bar stool or relax in the parlor with wooden floors, floor-length green curtains, tapestry rugs, and a collection of furnishings including green-and-red fabric chairs, a leather settee, and low coffee tables. The framed artwork in the parlor and throughout the hallways is a nice visual touch. Guests are mainly tourist couples, along with some families, who want a convenient location and a basic place to stay. 

Location

In Rome's historic center, close to the Termini station and Piazza della Repubblica

The hotel is located in the busy historic center of Rome with plenty of restaurants, shops, and cafes within walking distance. The Roma Termini train station, Opera house, and Piazza della Repubblica are within a five-minute walk, and Santa Maria Maggiore Square, where sightseeing buses stop, is within a 10-minute walk. The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps are all within a 20-minute walk or 15-minute metro ride from the hotel. Ciampino Airport is a 30-minute drive, and Leonardo da Vinci Airport is around 35 minutes by car. 

Rooms

Simple rooms with classic decor

Rooms at Giglio Dell’ Opera have classic decor including wooden floors, candelabra chandeliers, and floor-length curtains. Gilded-framed classical art and mirrors are nice, decorative touches. Wooden bureaus afford space for hanging up clothes, while wooden desks hold old, tube-style TVs or more modern flat-screen TVs. Rooms also have safes, mini-fridges (minibars on request), and free Wi-Fi -- though the Wi-Fi is shaky and limited to one device. Some rooms have more space and sofas. Bathrooms are dated and done in clay-colored and cream tile; they have bidets and small, stand-up showers, and guests complain that bathrooms are in need of better cleaning. There are no tea/coffee facilities.
