Positive Reviews

Great position if arriving by train

The hotel is situated extremely close to Termini Station. Since most of the guests were travelling on something of a budget, this location was ideal. It meant that they had no expensive taxi, or complicated public transport route, to deal with when arriving in Rome. Also, the location is well within walking distance of most of Rome's central attractions.

Air conditioning worked well

Considering the many faults guests seemed to find with Planet Hotel, they were simply relived that the air conditioning actually worked as it should, and they didn't need to endure a sweltering night.

Good price

It would not be true to say most guests considered Planet good value. However, many did say that the room-rate they received was exceptionally low, and this hotel may suit guests who are just looking for a place to crash for as little money as possible.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast was awful

While most guests do not seem to have breakfast included in their room-rate, the one's who did had nothing at all good to say about it. It was described as insufficient, something like the proverbial “coffee and croissant” …without the coffee.

Chronic overbooking

An incredible number of guests mentioned booking at Planet Rome, but on arrival being told either that the hotel never received their booking, or given some unlikely reason why they have no room available, before being sent to another hotel. To put it bluntly, guests believe these are all lies, and they simply chronically overbook.

Wi-Fi costs extra

Guests mentioned that Wi-Fi was not free, and that the daily charge was a little steep. Clearly, most did not appreciate having to pay for Wi-Fi, reasoning that since connectivity was such a feature of life nowadays that it should have been included in the room-rate.
