About SHG Hotel Portamaggiore

Large hotel with rooftop garden with easy access to Rome

Transit to city center
This 3-star hotel puts you outside of the city center but within walking distance of multiple transit stations. Jumping on the train will get you to Rome's major attractions, including the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps, in less than 20 minutes.

Colosseum convenience
From SHG Hotel Portamaggiore, you can take a leisurely walk to the Colosseum, around 2.2 km away, or jump on a local bus if you want to get there faster.

Eating and drinking
There are 2 restaurants and 2 bars on site, with 1 bar set in the rooftop garden, open in spring and summer. Guests give the thumbs-up to the breakfast buffet. In the lobby, you're find free WiFi and a gift shop.

Antiques and mod cons
The hotel's 215 spacious guestrooms combine antique furnishings and classical styling with modern features, like satellite TV, free WiFi, coffeemakers, and minibars. Air conditioning is much appreciated in Rome's hot summer months, and free toiletries are a nice touch.

SHG Hotel Portamaggiore
Hotel needs upgrade
The hotel is old and needs some upgrade. We had a leak in our bathroom which meant that the floor was always wet and bathroom was smelly. Shower is just a curtain and is so small it is awkward too shower.

Very basic hotel but convenient
The rooms are very small and not an accurate reflection of what's on the website pictures. Breakfast was very good and the location was great as its right opposite the tram station. AMAZING little Italian restaurant downstairs which makes the most devine food!

victoria, gb3 night trip
SHG Hotel Portamaggiore
There were six of us in three rooms. One room had mildew and a terrible odor in the bathroom. Staff was not helpful. We asked for a taxi they said 5 minutes, after 20 we went back and it had been canceled and no one told us. The terrace was pretty, but the bar did not have many things on the menu even after a couple days of asking (Bloody Mary mix) and Lemoncello, which is second most popular drink in Italy. The drinks and we did order were terrible and came out one by one. So by time the last person got their drink the others were finished. Also there were groups of teenagers running up and down hall and when told they did not send anyone for a long time. Terrible hotel, the only positive was it was near metro. The closest decent restaurant s we’re more than 1/2 mile away. Also, the towels were like thin dish towels. Not even cotton

good clean rooms, too small shower. good breakfast
The Hotel Porta Maggiore was good in all aspects as we marked. The area it is located it a bit far from the main attractions but probably that the reason for its very good price/performance.
