Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This spotlessly clean B&B and has a great location close to the Termini train station, but it is quiet. Also on that block among other businesses are a laundry/Internet combination, a fine and affordable Indian restaurant and a place with a Pizza Rustica sign, which has wonderful barbecued chicken and tasty meat pies. Around a corner and toward the Termini is a large enough supermarket with a good selection of cheese, sandwich meats and wine.

There is a place two blocks down that sells great whole wheat buns for sandwiches. In the very unlikely event that a person did not like Maryelen‘s, without looking hard I counted 7 hotels on our block alone.

We enjoyed chatting with other travelers then and the place lends itself to a sociable feeling. We had a fridge in our room, but it is cleverly camouflaged as part of the table. So, we only became aware of it when I asked to use the B&B fridge for sandwich meats. There is also an emergency cord in the bath room to pull, but we only found out what it was by pulling on it and having Maryelen show up. She could have told us more when she showed us the room, but she is a very warm, friendly and helpful person.

We are just back from a trip to Rome and Florence. MaryElen B&B was the first hotel we stayed in. We booked through venere.com. It is very close to the Termini (under a 5 minute walk, with suitcases), and Loredana had emailed great directions to us before we left the US. It's proximity to the Termini station meant we didn't have to use taxis at all during our stay in Rome -- there is a Metro stop at the Termini (one Euro per trip), as well as the airport express (9.50 Euros one way), and trains all around Italy. The food wasn't bad at the Termini cafe either! I was a little concerned about the Termini area, but we felt quite safe at all times of the day and night when walking around. There are three locked doors to enter before you reach your room too. The room fridge was great, and there is a supermarket very close by. Loredana gave us a map and showed us the major sites when we arrived. Breakfast was "euro-style": rolls, cake, corn flakes, toast, juice and fantastic coffee. Big room, small bathroom. Our courtyard facing room was lovely. Very hospitable and helpful folks. Compared to our other accomodations, good to average value for money.

This family B & B is in a very quiet street a short walk from the terminal. You will be greeted by Loredana your host, she will make you feel very welcome and will offer you good advice on where to go and how best to get there. she directed us to the supermarket which is the cheapest place for food and presents such as local wine and confectionery.these goodies are much cheaper than anywere in the city and the airport.

You will find your room to be very clean and functional, Loredana has provided everything you need including a 'hairdryer'. Breakfast is basic but you will be offered as many slices of toast as you can eat and your coffee will be refilled when ever you wish.

There are many restaurants, a 5 min walk away the best being the' L' Angolo di Napoli ' which is situated on Via Agostino Depretis. You can eat a three course meal here for as little as 15 Euros per head. The food is what you would expect to be eating in the capital city of Italy. Do order the Tiramasu as it is the best I have ever eaten!!

We will be staying again as this B & B was so comfortable and in such a good location. The best asset this B & B has to offer is Loredana she is a gem.

This was my worst stay ever and I have been traveling a long time. Cleanliness was lacking. I did not have hot water when I needed it. The toilet seat seemed to be falling off. When leaving the room, you are directed to a large metal door which needs a special key to exit. I was told to use the elevator on the way up, but not the way down?
I do not remember a smoke detector. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room, but it smelled like smoke. I had to leave a day early due to a Covid like virus and they would not work on a day refund. All in all, it was a terrible stay.

I had reserved two nights at Hotel Maryelen for the beginning and end of my son and daughter-in-law's honeymoon, reason being it was close to Termini train station. I had told the reservationist that they would be arriving very late (around midnight) on June 26. I paid up front, and when the couple arrived they were told the hotel was over-booked and that they would have to stay at the proprietor's "brothers" hotel down the street! It was horrible--no amenities, just a double bed---all this for $111.00! When contacted the next day by my son, I cancelled the reservation for the next weekend--only to be charged 83 euro for the cancellation. I am now disputing said charge with my cc company.

We had a reservation for 3 nights in early January. Arrived in Rome by train around 10:30 pm, and showed up at the hotel around 10:45/11:00 pm. Were hoping to check in quick and go to bed as we were traveling with 2 babies.

Turned out, our reservation was nowhere to be found, despite me having it with me in my hand. They made a few phone calls, and 4 people showed up talking in Italian trying to find a "solution".

Long story short, they would "graciously" have a room or us and solve our problem for 1 night. The next day we would have to find another place to stay for our other 2 nights. So we get stuck in this B&B room next door the size smaller than you can imagine.

We were required to pay the hotel charge in cash, cause apparently they don't take credit cards. So had we stayed for the full 3 days they would want 300 or so Euro's in cash. In my opinion they are a bunch of con artists and I bet they pocket the cash to avoid paying taxes and such.

Anyway, worst place of our entire trip. Best thing about this hotel was the checkout in the morning.

Find another place to stay. There are a million hotels in Rome, so I am sure you can do better than this dump.

If you're looking at a 1 star property near Termini Station, chances are you're looking for a bargain. The nightly rate on this property may look reasonable for Rome, but it is not a bargain. I was pressed for time when I booked this hotel found out too late that there are loads of nicer hotels in this area offering comparable or better rates.

I'm a well-traveled American living in Europe, so I know I know what to expect as the norm in the US, Caribbean, Asia, and throughout Europe and I adjust my expectations accordingly.

This isn't even a B&B really, just some haphazard blocks of rooms in what looks like an old tenement building, There are 2-3 other "hotels" in this building. They lock the front door at midnight because the owner's husband sleeps on a sofa in reception, then you have to enter through a sketchy looking courtyard.

In the one star category, I expect a small, clean, no-frills room with clean linens and a hot shower, and Hotel Maryelen failed at the most basic level. We arrived to hair stuck to the shower walls, hair on the bathroom floor, and a pile of dust in the corner. 2 showers/day x 4 days = 8 lukewarm showers!!! The towels felt line-dried, which didn't inspire confidence from a sanitary standpoint, especially since we were supplied 2 towels for the room and one of them clearly had blood spots that they had tried unsuccessfully tried to bleach out. Perhaps they should've found a replacement and used that one to mop the floor.

I watched a documentary on San Quentin once and I'm pretty sure their breakfast was better than what Hotel Maryelen provided. If the owners are this lazy about breakfast, they should drop the room price a few Euros and save themselves the embarrassment. Their "orange juice" was nothing more than watered down Kool-Aid. The breakfast spread itself was a crime against food... prepackaged cookies and croissants, stale bread and mass-produced cakes, tomatoes on soggy bread, dry salad with no dressings, yogurt with anemic looking fruit, and my favorite, those rubbery pre-wrapped imitation American "cheese" slices! This is Italy!!! How hard would it be to step up the game and go with real cheese and actual pastries?

We were booked for a few days in Tuscany and upon seeing our Rome accommodations, wanted to see if we could extend our Tuscany stay by a night and cut Rome a day short. When I asked Loredana, the owner on Monday if it was possible to cancel Friday so we could have an extra day in Tuscany, she initially said that she'd love to help me, but that it wasn't possible because it would be impossible for her to rebook the Friday night alone without a Saturday. So I said, "ok, then what if I cancel Saturday, too?" Then her tune rapidly changed into a lecture about how it would cause her more work and it was too short notice. She took out her booking list and went on and on about how it would cost her money, blah, blah, blah. Then she said that she would cancel Friday, but it was only when I pressed her, directly asking if I would not be charged for Friday that she said it would depend on whether or not she could resell the room. Totally shady! A simple "I'm sorry, that's not possible" would've sufficed and irritated me a lot less.

When the glorious moment arrived that I was finally able to checkout, I must've entered my PIN code wrong because my card was declined. I asked if I could try again but Loredana thrust the decline slip at me and pointed furiously at the Italian equivilent of "declined". I asked if she could run it again and she refused, tried another card, but the magnetic strip wouldn't work, and she refused to enter it manually, so, surprise...we had to pay cash. How convenient for the hotel!

In the plus category, there is free wi-fi in reception, this hotel is a very short walk from Termini station, and we were able to walk to all major sights within a reasonable amount of time.

Still, though, Hotel Maryelen was the biggest mistake of our trip, even factoring in the night we drank too much wine and paid for it the next morning, the night we ate at the tourist trap down the street, and the 100 Euros or so in taxi rides due to Terravision screwing up our transportation to the airport, and me misreading the departure station for our bus to Siena.

Do not book this hotel! Invest in a Lonely Planet guide and work your way through their list of inexpensive hotels until you find one that suits. You'll do much better that way. Had Amazon sent me the book I'd ordered and I'd not lost 2 weeks planning time in the exchange process, I'd have had a much better hotel.

Me and my husband stayed in this family run hotel in April 2013.
We were given a very warm welcome by the whole family, and our stay was very pleasant. The room was quite spacious and very clean .
It's close proximity to the Termini was a bonus and there were a lot of restaurants in the vicinity to choose from.
The lady/ owner was such a warm and inviting person, she made us feel right at home !!
Have pleasant memories of Rome and of our stay in this hotel.

Close to trains, bus and Metro but on a quiet side street. Staff were excellent in this family run hotel/B&B . We had been booked in a B&B around the corner that was dirty, noisy and overpriced and found this gem. Very reasonably priced - clean and well run. They helped with reservations for the Vatican Museum and recommended restaurants nearby. Excellent WiFi in the room as well!

Awful, awful stay at Hotel Maryelen. My fiancee and I loved everything about our visit to Italy except our stay at Hotel Maryelen. The people--the owner, Loredana, especially--are very nice and sweet. But that is not enough to enjoy a stay at a hotel.

The problems seems to pile on and on:

(1) The bed was terribly stiff and uncomfortable.
(2) Our shower was broken for 2/4 nights... we had to tell them for two days unti they replaced our showerhead. By "broken," I mean water came out of the neck such that we had to shower under the sprinkling of it, rather than a normal shower with sufficient water pressure coming through the head.
(3) The floor was so dirty, my poor fiancee has dirt CRUSTED on the soles of her feet, and had to re-rince them after she showered.
(4) THe breakfast was AWFUL. How awful? We opted to pay for breakfast during one of our stays b/c we just didn't want theirs.
(5) The internet ONLY WORKS IN THE LOBBY... BY DESIGN!

There are better--much better--hotels in Rome, even in this price range. Save yourself.
