We booked our honeymoon last minute so the hotels we wanted were all full. Though not my first choice for a romantic hotel, staying at Smooth Hotel Rome Termini was a smart decision and exceeded my standard expectations.
First they surprised us with a lovely welcome letter, extra towel swans, and complimentary bottle of delicious cuvée in the mini fridge. Second, the lodgings are brand spanking new, and the location is walkable to Termini Station and two really good gelaterias: La Romana and Come Il Latte. The area is not picturesque, but I felt safe given the British and Jordan embassy across and next door.
The front desk is available 24/7. The rooms are spacious by European standards. Bathrooms include a bidet.
Amenities include free breakfast buffet (7-10:30am), a mini fridge, a safe, umbrellas in case it rains, all in one citrus shampoo/soap/body wash. We were also able to borrow a US plug/converter from the front desk for €10.
I would recommend the hotel to travelers looking for modern furnishings at an affordable rate. Service throughout our stay was also stellar.
Only minor suggestions would be an additional peg in the bathroom to hang a 2nd towel or toiletry bag, and some English TV channels. More
