    Lady at the front desk was very nice and friendly. Overall stay was okay but we didn’t like the fact that our package included breakfast, however we were told at the front desk, that breakfast wasn’t served except tea or coffee. Sheets and bed fix weren’t changed everyday, not sure if it was policy. Otherwise place was fine, location was practical, metro line nearby, 10mins to some nice place in Rome for site seeing. Improvement needed, but I would recommend the place for short stay 3 days or less.

    Nice clean and convenient

    We stayed 4 nights at Magic guest house and it was a pleasant experience. The check-in process was really quick and hassle free, where, owner and her wife were very friendly, supportive and welcoming. Even they arranged us an early check-in though we couldn't be there early due to some sudden changes in the travel plan. The lady was very helpful and provided us with a brief explanation and a map of the tourist attractions in the Rome city as well. The location was very convenient and next to the Vittorio Emanuele subway station, where, walking distance to the Roma Termini railway station and most of the tourist attraction. There are many restaurants and grocery shops nearby. The room was small yet nice and cosy and super clean with an attached private bathroom and all the necessary amenities. They cleaned the room and replaced towels and other amenities daily. In room air conditioner, heater and hot water worked perfectly. However there was no breakfast or cooking facility. But there were a microwave oven, coffee maker, electric kettles and dine-in facility so you can bring some food, make them hot and enjoy while tasting a coffee or a tea always. Tea and coffee were provided free of charge with self service along with some cookies that you can taste any time. The overall stay was really nice and pleasant. It was a great value for money and can be recommended without any hesitation.

    Magic Door

    It would be good to clarify that there is no traditional hotel sign out front. There is not always someone at the registration desk. Very convenient neighborhood to train, sights in central Rome. Great coffeeshop/bar on the corner.

    Magic Door Rome is centrally located near Rome Termini. Check in and check out was convenient. The staff was accommodating and friendly, they let us leave our luggage, so we could explore the Colosseum, which was 15-20 mins walk. The room was very spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. We highly recommend this place when in Rome.

    Nice stay

    At first the area was a bit shocking with lots of homeless and dark areas. The guesthouse however is great, clean, modern and small but nicely done bathroom. We requested an iron and it was done, amenities are left on daily basis and room cleaned daily too. Only a contra, the WiFi signal is not so rich. Metro station everywhere and nice places to have breakfast but be careful since service on table is double price than taking the coffee yourself from the bar!

    The hotel is centrally located but kind of difficult to find because there is no big sign. Room is decorated nicely and AC works great - however, if you are a medium sized person and bigger, you will have trouble with a tiny shower area (claustrophobic) and the elevator in the building. The lobby could’ve smelt a bit fresher too but instead there were days where the garbage was sitting there. Metro station is a few convenient steps away!
