Although its rates are a smidge higher than many of the other hotels packing the streets around the train station, the family-run Welrome Hotel offers a list of extra amenities and thoughtful service that keeps guests coming back.
The Welrome Hotel, a two-star sleeper located near Termini Station, benefits from its owner Mary’s matronly care. Since 2000, she’s been offering advice, information and friendly conversation to help her guests enjoy Rome.
Each of her seven rooms is named after a Roman monument and are outfitted in tiled floors, a table and chairs, cream walls and green bedspreads. The “Colosseum” room boasts a small balcony which overlooks an internal courtyard. All rooms are air conditioned (a bonus, as the area can be a little noisy at night and you’ll want to keep the windows closed). In addition, all have a TV, telephone, safe, tea kettle, and a mini-fridge.
The private bathrooms are a pretty good size for Rome, and are equipped with a shower, bidet, hairdryer and toiletries.
As we mentioned in our review of the Hotel Pensione Papa Germano (located just across the street from the Welrome), this neighborhood has its advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, it’s cheap and convenient to the train station. On the other, even if it’s safe, it can seem a bit shady, especially at night.
The hotel does not offer breakfast, but there are many cafés nearby.
As we note above, the Welrome does not offer online booking. To reserve a room, you’ll have to contact the hotel directly by email or telephone (see below). We recommend booking early, as the Welrome is small and well loved.

About the Welrome Hotel neighborhood
The largely residential area north of Stazione Centrale Termini is both convenient and affordable. Trains heading to Fumincino airport and across Italy depart from this massive station, the front of which is also a major bus and metro stop. Although not the most picturesque neighborhood in central Rome, lots of hotel competition can often mean good rates. The area is always crowded and sometimes a little seedy.
