Clean room and well kept. The staff was very helpful with getting around info.
Hot water took way too long to warm up and the area wasn't all that great.
Staff provided superb excellent and they spoke English very well. I asked lot of questions and all of them were willing to answers all questions. Thank you very much. I recommend other readers to select this hotel if you do not mind walking around 10 minutes. My father and I had no problem walking that long.
value for money, friendly and available staff
The staff was excellent. They are very helpful and friendly. The location was a bit far from the city center but it's near a station so you could go to any tourist attractions easily. Highly recommend it for everyone.
The hotel was clean, bright and welcoming. All the staff were really helpful and very willing to spend time explaining how to do whatever we were trying to do. All spoke English to a very high degree and could not have been friendlier. The room was clean, comfortable and warm and the breakfast provided everything one could want at the start of the day. There were a choice of restaurants in the area and an excellent pizzeria on the way to the Metro.
The hotel was about a 10 minute walk to the nearest Metro station which was only a problem if you were in a hurry, or the weather was awful (which it was while we were there!) Otherwise it was a pleasant walk. The only negative on our stay was the shower in our room. It took 5 minutes for hot water to reach us on the 3rd floor, by which time the shower tray was full and overflowing, so you had to turn off the showere and wait for the water to drain slowly away. Then hope to get hot water before the tray filled up again! But we got quite good at the process!
It was easy to get to and from the Metro. We spend the whole day out sightseeing, so other than a breakfast and a clean room, that is all we require.
Good three star hotel. Good rooms, nice batthroom, simple but fine breakfast. Very friendly staff. 5-7 minutes walking from metro where you can go to ancient Rome. Some parties all around Garbatello district at weekends if you like.
Can be noisy in certain rooms.
Excelent staff - the best I have had in Italy
Unfortunatelly there were problems with hot watter. The breakfest is very poor.
I had a lot of problem with air conditioning, always the power shutoff so we find with out light and air conditioning. Better chose another hotel.
The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room was good. They changed the towels and cleaned the room every day. If I have to choose to go to Rome again I will definitely choose hotel Derby. Good price, good location, nicest - good people :)
During the night it was a little bit noisy. I guess the street in front the hotel connects two neighborhoods or something like that, but it's not a big problem.
Problems with wi-fi.
breakfast is poor. wifi internet is not stable.
friendly staff comfortable room everything is good
a little bit far from the metro ,but it's OK, considering the price
Apart from a few problems (lack of Internet access the first few days, sometimes lack of soap) generally good value. Quiet and comfortable, and the staff were helpful and friendly.
The location and price.
The decoration, style.
