On an alley that is used as a freeway, it's noisy and dangerous to walk the area. The room they put us in overlooked the street on the main floor and when we complained about the noise, that goes on ALL night, they would not move us. You will have to close the windows and turn the AC all the...

I absolutely loved staying here while I was in Rome. My boyfriend and I stayed here our first two nights in Rome and decided to stay here again when we were coming through Rome the second time. During our first visit they allowed us to move our stuff into our room early so we could shower and clean up after...

We stayed at the Hotel Grifo during our two week trip to Italy for the first time! We arrived and were immediately assigned a room but were moved without hesitation when we discovered our air conditioner was not working. We were very appreciative of the assistance as we were not used to the kind of humidity and heat! Our newly...

To get a truly wonderful experience of The Eternal City, try the Hotel Grifo. A short walking distance from the Cavour metro station, the small, multi-story Hotel is sandwiched between similarly-sized buildings. The Hotel is on a narrow street that bustles with commuters in the morning and with walkers in the evening. Our room was a couple of levels above...

We decided to stay at Hotel Grifo after reading excellent reveiews on TripAdvisor. They turned out to be true! The service was fantastic, perhaps the best at any hotel we've been to. The front desk staff were friendly, offered tips and suggestions, remembered our names and were generally always welcoming. The room was small (like any other in the city),...

Our family of 4 enjoyed the quad room with the terrace (shared terrace but we were the only ones using it). We got a "feel for Rome" as the hotel is not a North American style hotel. It is in a quite area but not far from anything. We had a problem with our A/C during our stay and it...

This hotel is located in a great spot. We were so close to the Coliseum! We had some troubles finding the hotel even with the directions I got from the hotel. Our room was very tiny and it wasn’t the cleanest room. Everything was very dated and the shower was soooo tiny! BUT I do recommend the hotel. 1) Great...

My husband, myself, our 18 year-old daughter and her best friend stayed at the Hotel Grifo for three nights in July 2011. It was a great hotel. Very clean and the staff was very helpful. It had a beautiful garden rooftop that was lovely. Would definitely stay there again!

Hotel Grifo was a nice, comfortable, clean & reasonably priced place to stay in Rome. The location is great, and 10 min walk to Colosseum. The hotel is on a quiet street in Rome, with several excellent restaurants within a two block radius. The showers are a little dinky as other people commented on, but after three weeks in Italy,...

We traveled for about 3 weeks in Europe as a family of 4 - we have 2 adult children so we needed space for 4 adults. Rome was our third stop, and we stayed there 5 days.

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
