I've stayed at Hotel Franklin Feel The Sound twice in a span of 5 years and it was great both times. A small hotel, it is close to the Vatican and a short walk to the subway stations. Clean and modern, wooden floors and an attentive staff. Nice breakfast in the morning. Will be back again.

The hotel has a very different concept where they have placed musical instruments in different parts of the hotel.....they have a big range of music cds at the lobby too....but the hotel rooms are very small.....below average breakfast....and the location is average too...the hotel is not worth the price.....there are many better options in rome at this price..

From the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out the staff could not have been any more help or friendlier.

Very nice hotel, clean rooms, good services. I have travelled with wife and nine years old daughter and it was very kindly to find every day some candies on the bed (especially for daughter). Good location of the hotel, 7-10 min walk to Vatican.

Took us a bit to find it, not a loud location compared to others. It was off the main road tucked away, with a quiet entrance. When we walked in, we could not find the lobby for the life of us. We had a suite on first floor, with walk out porch area. The host were very nice. It looked...

This hotel is in a weird location.... 20 minutes north from vatican. Nothing is close by. On the positive there are a few great locals only restaurants such as Bella Napoli (highly recommended!) around the corner. Breakfast is just bad. Bathrooms are just bad. Staff is nice though.

The hotel is in a residential neighborhood a ten minute walk from the Vatican area, so the nearby shops and restaurants are more authentic and less pricy than those in touristy areas. It has a fun music theme, and is nicely updated in the furnishings, electronics, thermostat, and fixtures. Upon arrival, the concierge said that the double room we had...
