Review Summary



  • Gritty location far from most major sights
  • Dated decor including old bedspreads
  • Some complaints of cancellations without warning
  • No amenities

Bottom Line

The Hotel Marco Polo is a standard budget traveler's hotel near the Termini train station. Rooms are simple and basic with dated furniture and worn bedspreads, while bathrooms are clean and modern (though some are more impressive than others). Room amenities include small flat-screen TVs, minibars, and a safe. Triple rooms are on offer and might be convenient for groups or families. A small, antique elevator is used to reach the hotel and can only accommodate two or three people at a time. Some guests have complained about cancellations of reservations without warning.

Near the Termini train station in Repubblica

Map of Hotel Marco Polo

Hotel Marco Polo is located in the Repubblica neighborhood near the Termini train station, which has a reputation for graffiti and loiterers. Repubblica is often not the Rome that people expect upon arriving -- it's not very picturesque and the roads here are paved instead of cobblestone. But in the last couple of decades the area has been improving. It is home to several centuries-old structures, such as the ruins of the Baths of Diocletian (ancient public baths dating back to 298 AD), the adjacent Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, and the Michelangelo-designed Santa Maria Degli Angeli.
