Oyster Hotel Review
A historic hotel with impressive common spaces but bland rooms
The hotel is housed in a historic neoclassical building and many of the public spaces maintain their original style; frescoes, gilded moldings, pillars, and vaulted ceilings abound in the lobby. The spacious breakfast room and tiny bar corner have a more modern aesthetic, though guests should note that the opening hours are limited for both.
Halfway between Termini Station and Trevi Fountain
The Eurostars International Palace is very centrally located between Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza Venezia, on a street bustling with shops, cafes and restaurants. It’s just blocks from Termini train station and within walking distance of several tourist sights -- specifically, it's a five-minute walk to the Rome Opera House and a 15-minute walk to the Trevi Fountain.
Bigger and more contemporary Superior Rooms are worth the upgrade.
Room decor varies drastically between room types: Standard Rooms are cramped and dated with tiny bathrooms (the small shower stall is a major drawback). Superior Rooms have much more space and are more modern in style, but the decor is still bland. Picture brown bedding, wood floors, and bare white walls. Though the hotel is on a busy block, the double-pane glass windows block out almost all of the street noise. Some rooms face an unappealing internal courtyard.
A small bar and a free airport shuttle
The Eurostars International Palace lacks spa treatments and a fitness center, as do many hotels in Rome -- even those advertised as four stars. The hotel’s restaurant serves above-average fare (especially the breakfast, which is included in some rates) and the small bar area is modern, but both have limited hours of operation. The free shuttle provided to and from the airport is a notable plus, as is the fast, free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
