Local from Rome, Italy

Franklin hotel is in a great position, located in "Prati" area, a few steps from Castel Sant' Angelo and the important Città del Vaticano. "Ottaviano" is the nearest train stop. If you love music is the perfect place to your stay. In fact the hotel is totally inspired by music. In the hall there are a lots of CD that you can take and listen in you room with Bang and Olufsen audio system. Rooms design is really cool, the bedside tables are drums and the light in the bathroom is a discoball. So really nice rooms but also really clean, comfortable and well insulated. Bathrooms have a jacuzzi. Breakfast is included in the price as the wifi connection. Then you can find an inner garden, a parking with a special deal for all guests and a free bike service. Staff is kind, helpful and always available. This hotel is definately innovative and different from the others.

Kindness and cordiality. An experience to try. The theme of music is crucial and creates a nice atmosphere. The receptionist has a tie with the piano keys! It makes me smile. If you like music this hotel is for you and you will love it. The breakfast is decent and they bring it in the room for free if you want. Everything perfect, service, cleanliness, bedroom, bathroom with tub, excellent background music, satellite television. The location is very good too: 10 minutes walk to vatican and to Ottaviano metro station. What more to ask for a really fair price? The only flaw is the entrance, a bit small and hard to find at first sight. Anyway I totally reccomend it.

This hotel is a hidden gem in Rome. It's decked out in a music theme ,and you'll notice this immediately when you enter the lobby and see the staff wearing their piano roll ties! My favorite thing about this hotel is that it is not right smack in the middle of all the tourism, and it is in a nice neighborhood in Rome. There's a convenient bus stop nearby to take you to some of Rome's star attractions and St. Peter's and the Vatican are easily within walking distance. The rooms are comfortable and clean, although the single room is on the small side but ideal for a person on their own or a couple (they do have larger rooms). There's a small restaurant where they serve breakfast in the morning that is comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly, multilingual and always ready to help out with getting around the city and for things to do.

Stayed at this hotel 18months ago, Superb, clean very modern, chic, hip, within walking distance of major sights, very little parking though but we caught the hop-on/off bus booked through Viator. Very reasonably priced for this standard of Hotel.

Non sono tra i grandi amanti della compagnia Best Western, ma che dire, qui al Franklin feel the sound, non ne hanno sbagliata una. Hotel comodo, per via della posizione, si trova infatti nel rione Prati. Le stanze hanno una buona dimensione, ne troppo piccole ne troppo grandi, bagni puliti e confortevoli. La sera rimangono silenziose, grazie anche a degli infissi nuovi. Personale accogliente, ottimi il servizio in camera. Adatto particolarmente per chi viaggi per lavoro, ma anche per le famiglie con bambini.
