Bottom Line

The 11-room Hotel Giuliana is a basic value property with a fantastic central location where many sights are less than a 15-minute walk away. Traditional, no-frills rooms have minibars, air-conditioning, and coffeemakers; some have jetted showers and flat-screen TVs. But room decor is dated with old tube TVs, and some rooms have loud exterior noise. The included breakfast receives good reviews and there are Italian beers and wines available 24/7 at the on-site bar. A lovely outdoor balcony has seating and plenty of greenery. Wi-Fi throughout has a daily fee, and there's no on-site parking.

Scene

A family-run hotel with a wonderful outdoor balcony but dated style

A friendly and helpful atmosphere emanates from this family-run hotel, which features a classic style. Free coffee and tea are provided in the lobby, which is covered in gray tile and furnished with a red couch for seating and a small white front desk. Traditional artwork and a tube-style TV hang on the walls. Pink and green lacy tablecloths adorn the tables in the small breakfast room, and the bar has a red front with glass shelving contain liquor bottles. Outside on the small, pretty balcony, there's a chair and table along with many potted plants and flowers. However, most of the decor is dated (although somewhat homey), and the common spaces, especially the breakfast area, are cramped.

Location

Marvelous central location with many top sights less than a 15-minute walk away

The Hotel Giuliana is in the historic district with the Rome Opera, Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, public transportation, restaurants, and shops all a five-minute walk away. Piazza della Repubblica, the Rome Termini Train Station, and Trevi Fountain are less than a 15-minute walk from the hotel, while the Colosseum, Villa Borghese, and Piazza Venezia are around a five-minute drive. The Pantheon and Spanish Steps are a 10-minute drive while the Ciampino Airport and Leonardo da Vinci International Airport are about a 30-minute drive away.

Rooms

Basic, no-frills rooms with minibars, coffeemakers, and dated decor; some have jetted showers

Rooms at the Hotel Guiliana are available in a variety of configurations, including Single through Triple Rooms, and all have a traditional style with light-tile floors, red floral bedspreads, and classic art on their white walls. Air-conditioning flows throughout, and there are minibars with drinks inside mid-tone wood furniture pieces. Coffeemakers sit on top of wood desks and some rooms have flat-screen TVs; other rooms have tube-style TVs. The bedspreads, curtains, and overall style are tired, however, and some rooms have loud exterior noise. Additionally, Single Rooms don’t have minibars. Tan countertops and red tile decorate the classic bathrooms, which feature hairdryers and Hotel Giuliana toiletries. Some have jetted showers while others have shower/tub combos. Note, there's a pesky fee for Wi-Fi. 

Features

Breakfast included plus 24/7 on-site bar; fee for Wi-Fi and no on-site parking

Breakfast is included in a charming, if cramped space, and has coffee, pastries, fruit, yogurt, breads, and cereal; it receives good reviews. There's no full restaurant, but a 24/7 bar has Italian beer and wine available while a small, pretty balcony full of potted plants gives another cozy spot to sit. The front desk offers concierge services. Wi-Fi in the common areas and in the rooms has a daily fee and there is no on-site parking or business center. Additionally, both airport and train station transportation have fees.
