Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Inveterate traveller He made our day.
It is really great in this era to have a staff member offer to walk the two blocks to the railroad station with us as we had heavy bags that we would have had great trouble getting up the steep ramp to the station and then down to the access tunnel and then up to the correct track. It was really appreciated. And to top it off, he refused to accept a gratuity.

Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Hotel,
in dem ich 4 Tage war. Mit Freunden haben wir unser Hotelzimmer auch mal gut ausgenutzt und fanden die Grundausstattung sehr ansprechend.
Services der Mitarbeiter in der Lobby war auch sehr gut! Nur wurde bedingt der Fußboden gereinigt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Txblonde826 Great Stay!
The room was very clean and have no complaints about the room itself. Being in control of our own AC was a treat in itself. The staff responded to our requests when children were playing late outside our patio door which was also a great plus since we had to be up extra early to catch our flight. The breakfast was ok. There could be more of a hint of what Americans eat and not focused solely on a European type of breakfast. There was plenty of options in breakfast rolls and breads but nothing protein related other than scrambled eggs that were either imitation or otherwise. That would be my only issue to that. The staff was a little noisey during breakfast, and the TV was loud but again, easy to resolve issues there. On another note, Gerardo was exceptional in the evenings. He ran his tail off trying to accommodate everyone and for that he deserves high praise. He fixed drinks, was very pleasant, placed food orders, and did it all with a smile. He really deserves great praise.I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean room and easy to access to all the sites.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ray_2014 Review for San Giovanni Rome
San Giovanni Rome is a good hotel once you figure out the local vincinity! There is a nearby pizza shop which sells great pizza (make sure to ask them to heat up the pizza!) and 2 metros nearby which is quite convenient for travellers. A tip for travellers staying in this hotel is that you might be allocated rooms are situated beside the train station which can make it hard to sleep. I would like to thank the hotel staff who changed the room for us, hence giving us peaceful nights in Rome. And thank you for not charging us extra.

The breakfast should always include boiled eggs and scrambled eggs (not soggy though). Eggs are everywhere and international. It should also include american food and some food from the incorporated from the country that it is located. I was consistently asked for my room number from staff while I was having breakfast and I stayed there 3 days and had the same staff members asking me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sectreas An enjoyable stay
We stayed only one night but wished we had more time to enjoy the hotel. The courtyard was great for an evening drink and conversation and was just as enjoyable in the morning when having breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chinwart Great Hotel and Good Service
The hotel is very clean and tidy with very comfortable beds. The room was also fitted with Air con which worked perfectly. Breakfast was very good with a lot of variety. All staff were polite and helpful except for one guy on the front desk that didn't look very happy and didn't reply to our good morning greeting, however he could have just been having a bad day and it of course didn't spoil anything! I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to visit Rome. Being just outside of central Rome isn't a problem. I am going to be posting a hotel review video on youtube soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maslenica Nice hotel
I stayed with my friend for two nights and if I ever go to Rome again I would stay here again. The rooms are clean, the bed is perfect… The breakfast was nice (the only thing I did not like were plastic glasses for juice) and the section with sweets and cakes was perfect!
Location is also good. Hotel is situated in quite neighborhood and 700 meters away is metro station Ponte Lungo (it takes 10 minutes to Termini, central train station).
Everything looked nice, clean, fresh, smelled good, staff was friendly (thanks to Simone) and I do not have anything bad to say about this hotel. Highly recommended!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lyn 2912 Great sevice and courteous replies from Roberto
We were travelling on a Groupon deal from USA and had stayed three nights in London and three nights in Paris. Now it was Rome's turn. Our Paris stay had been comfortable but not excellent so I decided to email ahead and emailed Roberto, staing my concerns. After a most courteous reply, Roberto went to extra trouble to make sure we were in a comfortable room. We enjoyed the bar and dining area and the wonderful breakfasts. The service given was always friendly and courteous.Thankyou Holiday Inn Express for making our stay in Rome a most comfortable and happy one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nick48 Hotel and Location
The standard of Hotel and services are excellent. If you wish to use the Internet the Reception Staff will assist you to connect to hotels system.
Although Hotel is located outside the main city centre the Metro is only 5 to 10 minutes walk and this links to all the main tourist attractions and the main Train and Bus Terminals.
Had an excellent stay and would recommend this Hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fbonfis Good hotel in Rome near to public transportations
For my recent trip to Rome I stayed at Holiday Inn Express Rome - San Giovanni .
It is very easily reachable from the trains station Tuscolana and the underground, both in a walking distance.
Good and clean rooms.
Very appreciated the people: Romina at the front desk and Roberta and Federica at the breakfast.
A nice, good, affordable restaurant is next to the hotel, "L'Isola" on the same street, I definitively recommend that as well (see the waiter Mr. Giuseppe).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ruthi Very happy!
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the start of May. On arrival, reception were very efficient re: checking in. There were no tea/coffee facilities in the room but after asking this was soon rectified. The hotel is only 5 mins walk from the train station and Metro.
The room was basic but clean and tidy with air con. It was also quiet. There were no problems with train noise or the nearby homeless shelter which we didn't even notice.
The breakfast was great, loads of choice and very welcome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ARC57 Nice convenient property
Hotel is a great value for the price. The staff was very courteous and recognized my Platinum status at check-in. Breakfast buffet in the morning is very nice with an ample selection of choices. Room was very clean and comfortable, but it was small. Complementary WiFi is a bit slow, but adequate. Hotel has a nice quaint atmosphere.
The hotel is close to both trains, metro, buses and a few nice restaurants, all within short walking distance.
I recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again on my next visit to Rome.

Limited bar/food facilities. Not a hotel for relaxing in. Only good as a base due to the limited services and lack of fitness facilities (even though advertised as being within very close proximity) Overall very disappointing

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by psyairii Great for a hotel in Europe except...
The walls were pretty thin. We didn't have neighbors until the last 2 nights and they were very loud until 2 in the morning. Otherwise breakfast was great...they had drink machines, eggs(watery), bacon, tons of breads, yogurt, cereal and apples. It was better than a continental breakfast in the states, where they usually just serve donuts and coffee. O yes and there was a weird sewage smell in the lounge/ check-in area. Otherwise it was a great place to stay, near the trains (that can take you directly to the airport for 8 euros) and the metro, which can take you directly into the heart of Rome for touristy things. O and you get free wifi if you are a IHG member or sign up there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cww20811ss cold reception and something bad.
When i check in, anything is all right.
I get the platinum member benefit. The free wifi pass and welcome drink ticket.
After a while, i feel a unusual noise. And i get the contiunly noise come from bathroom.But i really tired so i am not to finger out.
And the wifi very weakly in the room.
The welcome drink i ask the front desk and wait for 20 to 30 mins.
I feel staff service is diffent between Italian and other county(or Asia people).
The most important thing is below
When i leave the hotel. I see the receipt that show my county is CN.
I'm Taiwanese with Taiwan's passport. The county should be TW.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quark711 A nice room. Platinum status recognized.
The staff was attentive and helped when our pathetic attempts to speak Italian faltered. Our rooms were two of the handful that had balconies, which was great! (Recognition of my platinum status, perhaps?) The rooms were spacious by European standards, and nicely furnished.
The location is only two blocks from the Metro, so getting to major sights was a breeze. The neighborhood was OK with a good selection of shops on a main street about two blocks south.
The only negative we experienced was the first night when a lounge employee indifferently turned up the volume on the TV that was right next to our table of four without asking whether we minded. (We were the only ones there.) As a result we, and the entire lobby area, got to share his joy of listening to commentary about Italian soccer. When he left the area we turned it down, but 10 minutes later he came by a second time and turned it back up, this time with more "attitude". That was the last expenditure we made in the hotel for the duration of our three night stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rol30 Nice hotel although a bit far from main attractions.
Hotel is new, rooms are big and comfortable. It is just a bit warm so i kept the balcony door open, which is a bit noisy due to train passing by. But not a big discomfort as they stop running by midnight. Breakfast is free and quality of food is acceptable. Location is a bit far from the main attractions but there is metro nearby. There is not much in the neighborhood, so better have dinner first before heading back to the hotel.

First visit to Rome together with my love one and stay 5 nights in this hotel. Location of the hotel is good as metro and train station are in a walking distance. The staff service during my stay is good. The room comfort is why I choose IHG group hotels as usual.
Will stay here again during my next trip to Rome
