Recent guest reviews

Came here end of June bought my mother to Rome for a holiday. Decided to stay here again as we my sister and I have stayed here before. The room we had was lovely and clean and even had a balcony where we could sit. The breakfast here is lovely as well. I would have liked a bit more variety but on the whole it was fine. Well cooked, well laid out. Everything was always lovely and fresh. The staff were very helpful. They helped us make reservations at the restaurants, gave us maps, advised us on what was best to do in regards to planning the day. The also recommended some restaurants to us which were lovely. The hotel itself was very clean and I love the quirky decor. It's in a decent location a two min walk from the metro station. I would recommend this hotel because the hotel is central but not at the same time. It's in a lovely place. The hotel itself is in a great location. It's very clean and tidy. The staff are very helpful pleasant and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is the best.

We booked this hotel due to price and location. We wanted to be close to most things (or at least the subway/metro), but didn't want to pay the crazy prices of some hotels in the more touristy areas. To be honest, the hotel is fine for a solo traveler or someone with little to no luggage. Our room was the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in - I knew it would be small, but I think it was a surprise how claustrophobic I felt in it once we arrived. Check-in was smooth and we were able to walk to a nearby restaurant for dinner after a long travel day. The room itself was clean, but storage space is non-existant. We had 2 large suitcases and 2 large backpacks (for camera equipment) so we had to stack our suitcases on the one stand the room had and get all our items out the night before. There is no storage space or counter in the bathroom. There is a tiny little shelf to hold a few items or one small toiletry bag. The shower drain didn't drain properly, so after a 5-10 minute shower, the water was filling up the bottom. Due to this, the shower always smelled like stale/standing water. The towel rack (which is in the shower and looks like it should heat towels) was rusted in some areas. Bed was a little on the hard side and pillows weren't very comfortable. AC was decent, but could have run colder. The hotel isn't close to much, you do have to walk about 7 minutes (or more depending on how fast you walk) to the closest area for restaurants/gelato/groceries. It's about the same walk to get to the metro/subway station which we took a few times.

The hotel was clean and nice, but average, a bit like a Premier Inn. The staff made it for us, especially Dimitrius who couldn't have been more helpful recommending restaurants and sight seeing advice.

We stayed here for 4 nights prior to picking up a cruise in Civitaveccia. We had upgraded to a deluxe room after reading other reviewers comments on the size of the standard rooms and were pleased with the deluxe room with balcony .The room wasn't as spacious as we would have liked and there wasn't t a great deal of storage space however the private balcony made up for this and we spent many pleasant evenings with a bottle of wine out there.Staff were lovely,nothing too much trouble.Metro 5 minutes away some great restaurants close by so ideal place to stay .

Fell at Best Western Cinamusic, in Roma Italy, was taken to hospital, severe sprain, advised to stay off my leg for 2 weeks, ruined my vacation. Called corporate in the states, after several calls to them, they advised me, they will not compensate me in anyway for out of pocket expenses. I must say the manager at the hotel did offer me a cup of coffee when he helped me off the floor as he saw me fall. Big of him. Shame on you, Best Western Hotel & Resort, will not recommend your Hotel to anyone. That is not the way to run a company. This is not the way to make money, but from what I read from all the other complaints I'm not surprised of this outcome. You lost another customer.

Our family (myself, partner 39 and 43 young adult sons in 20's) enjoyed staying in this hotel. First holiday in Rome and staying here made it just perfect. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The decor is so appealing bright and modern, but not minimilast. Breakfast (served with a smile every time) is so good with lots to choose from, great coffee and you can eat inside or out. Lovely rooftop area to sunbathe on loungers. Located 5 mins from train station and subway so you can get around to see the sights. After a day sightseeing the hotel is a relaxed place to come back to. No restaurant service in evening but no problem as you tend to stay out into evening or night, or if setting off early come back to freshen up then back out into the city on the subway. If we go back to Rome this will be our 1st choice of hotel. Finally the guy who checked us in (sorry I didn't catch his name was bit dazed from an early start) told us a lot of really helpful information with an accompanying map. An all round winner!

Stayed here with my Partner on the 18th Aug 2017 for 5 days and couldn't have asked for any better! Hotel 4* - The hotel was perfect for what we required and it was very clean,the rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels also even though we didn't ask them to be changed they were anyway which was great! The hotel was B&B but we just went RO as we were out early so bought breakfast along our travels. We did eat breakfast 1 morning at the cost of €5 which was just like back home although you could go up as often as you like with plenty of selection on offer. Roof top balcony - They have a roof top balcony which was again perfect if you just was a day chilling together,there is a jaquzzi there which you get 1 free token each after that there's a charge to use it but the 2 tokens were great for us as we were out most of the time sight seeing,not sure how much it was for the tokens as we didn't purchase any,there is also a bathroom/shower on the balcony and spa but that was closed due to the hot weather. Reception - we were greeted on arrival by Sebastiano who was very kind and helpful showing us and marking out on the map where we needed to go and what bus/tube we needed to catch to visit all the attractions. He also gave us 1 free jacuzzi token as it was our 1st anniversary together,I emailed the hotel before we left to arranged a bunch of flowers and chilled wine as a surprise to my partner for the day to the year that we met and they were delivered perfectly as asked. The afternoon receptionist Alessandro was also very helpful when needed. Area - The area around looks quite poor in places with a lot of graffiti on the buildings but don't let that put you off,both myself and partner walked around during the day and night and felt very safe there we had no cause for concern. Transport - We booked this hotel as it was about 3min walk to the tube station and bus stop. When we arrived we were told that there was work going on in the metro until the 3rd Sept we looked at each other and laughed (Typical) but again Sebastiano marked out on the map the route we needed to go to visit the attractions etc. With that we decided to take a walk up to the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain to see how long it would take and to our surprise it was only a 30min walk to them from the hotel so we done that every day which allowed us to take in the culture of Rome along the way. We also done the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain during the night and decided to catch the bus back so we could familiar ourselves with the stops for when we go to the Vatican it was very straight forward. We bought a 24hr bus pass for €12 each that allows you to travel in bus/metro and tram. If you have used the tube in London then you'll be fine although it's very straight forward and easy to use. Now that we know the area we would catch the metro straight from the Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and buy a 5 day pass or whatever would be required instead of booking transfers So to sum it all up we would most definitely book this hotel again if visiting Rome. Everything was perfect for what we required and we would both highly recommend this hotel to others visiting Rome in the future.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Best Western Cinemusic Hotel for fiance's birthday/ 1 year anniversary. Be prepared for loads of walking! When we arrived we thought it was a terrible part of town (graffiti on every available surface) but apparently that's the norm around Rome, the area was actually fine and safe to walk in the evening. We had to walk around 15-20 mins to St John Lateran building to change Omnia vouchers for the actual tickets and the bus stop for the bus is around the corner from there. (Tip: the ordinary local bus number 81 will take you to the colosseum also) . We found it hard to get somewhere gorgeous to eat and drink in the evening - there's are loads of tiny restaurants around the hotel but if you want mood lighting and a lovely restaurant/ bar we found one on the last night - gutted we didn't find it before. The restaurant/ bar is called Tira e Molla , about 5-10min walk from hotel. Gorgeous. Hotel was very clean , staff don't speak much English - Dometri was fabuolous. The best bit of this hotel was the sun terrace (we stayed in a deluxe double with terrace) rooms are very small , but that's normal in Rome, and the hot tub on the roof terrace was fab after a hard walking day to chill out. Breakfast was fine. BEST TIP: when you go through arrivals at airport- don't take a taxi where they approach you as soon as you're through arrivals it will Cost you around 120 euros! The usual fair for a nice car is 50 euros and a standard one around 35- so ask hotel on way back to book you a 50 euro one. Eating and drinking out can be expensive - and if you're a smoker finding somewhere open to buy them is a mission- so take some with you as you can't buy them at the departing EU airport to take with you (not allowed)!overall the sight seeing was fabulous- Rome is a must see but accommodation and scenery around Rome was a little disappointing for us - but then its city centre - roll on a beach hol next!

Me and my partner stayed here for 4 nights for our first trip to Rome. The hotel is located in a quiet area with lots of local restaurants near by, however when we visited most were shut i love you to being on their holidays. There is a bus stop within a 10 minute walk from the hotel which connects you to Termini where you can then get access to most tourist attractions via bus or metro. The Hotel was incredibly clean, staff were very helpful and friendly and spoke good English so communication wasn't an issue. We stayed in a double deluxe room with a terrace which was great, room was a decent size, very comfortable beds and well equipped. We even used the jacuzzi on our last night which topped off our stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Rome but recommend upgrading to the deluxe room! Thanks for making our stay incredible!

Stayed here for four nights on a family break. The hotel is lovely, well designed, impeccably clean and well run. Our triple room was small but well designed and had a wonderful large outdoor terrace with furniture which was great. Nice touches like toothbrush & toothpaste in the bathroom, slippers and a nicely stocked mini bar. Breakfast had a great selection of items and the staff were friendly. Reception team went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay, talking us through maps, where to go and the best way to get to everything. When I wasn't able to book Vatican tickets from my phone they did this for me. I would highly recommend this hotel.
