hotel ottocento....Rome

Is anyone familiar with this hotel near Trevi Fountain? Found a great rate for this 4 star hotel on orbitz for June. Also, can one travel to Sorrento by bus or is it better to take the train to Naples and then go by train to Sorrento?

Hi krillrobin

Last summer, during the heatwave, we stayed at the Ottocento. We checked out at 3am on our first night. Our room was 83 degrees F. There was a thermometer in the room!! They said that there was nothing they could do about the AC.

It is a nice boutique hotel, great location, small rooms and nice marble bathrooms. If you don't care about AC, then stay there.

We had a few hotels in mind before we made the reservation. So we had the front desk call one of them and went there. The AC in that hotel was great. Good luck.

Thanks for the information. Where did you end up staying and were you pleased?

We ended up at the Hotel Mondial right off Via Nazionale. If you are looking for a boutique hotel, this is not it. It is however comfortable and centrally located about 4 blocks from Roma Termini.

If you do a search at the top of the sceen using Rome and Hotels, you'll come up with lots of good ideas. Have fun.

Hi Krillrobin: we just got back from a 6 night stay at the Ottocento and were generally pleased. However, the rooms are pretty small - barely enough room for a queen bed. It felt cramped for 2 people. The rooms and bathrooms are nicely decorated. Since we went in the winter, A/C wasn't a big concern for us but I could see how the rooms could get unbearable in the heat of summer. We had a room facing the street and our biggest complaint was that the windows were not soundproofed so you could hear everything on the street (including the drunk guy having a conversation with himself!). I think that a 4-star hotel in Italy means that it has a restaurant in it (just my own observation) - I think the Ottocento would be better classed as a 3-star. The location was good - we walked everywhere. It's close to the Spanish Steps and about 5 mins. from the Trevi fountain. We paid 140 euros per night which included breakfast and taxes.
