Courtyard Rome Central Park4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We were concerned that this hotel was not in the city center. But we have been pleasantly surprised with the services they offer. They have a shuttle bus that drops off and picks up at the Vatican hourly until 9 pm. That gave us more options for getting into the city center. The metro is more than a walk away but the city bus stop is about three blocks away and can take you anywhere you need to go. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. If there is a flaw it would be their continental breakfast. It is mostly so so pastries and some juice for $8. It was just okay.
Excellent rooms, good breakfast, far from downtown. The metro station was closed for renovations but there is a courtesy van that will take you next to the Vatican. My recommendation is if you plan to go downtown make sure the station is open otherwise you will be paying for taxis if you are out longer than the courtesy van schedule.
smart, intuitive, insightful REALLY HELPFUL front desk staff. Their welcome and ongoing service make this Courtyard by Marriott location exceptional. Good breakfast, but not included in basic room rate
My stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Rome Central Park was amazing!!!! Samantha at the front desk is must keep employee. We had a great experience with the restaurant and the room with the view and balcony was the icing on top. The hotel offered a shuttle to outside of the Vatican and this was a great area to eat and shop as well. The hotel gave a recommendation to a nearby family owned restaurant, Taverna Sacchetti. The food was amazing and very personal. The hotel is perfect because it’s a Courtyard and they offered almost as much as a full service Marriott. I was very pleased with the service and what was offered. **I would say to cover the pastries up instead of leaving them open for bugs.** If you are looking for a great hotel in Rome, I would suggest the Courtyard Rome Central Park.
The reception staff are extremely helpful so are the waiting staff, the rooms are reasonable but tired, I haven't seen these old fashioned showers for many years, the TV was a little unreliable with only a few English channels. The big problem with this hotel is that it is a long way from the centre of Rome, they have a shuttle bus that runs every hour at 3E per person to the outer wall of the Vatican which is not central Rome. If you get a taxi from the centre you will pay around 15 to 18 Euros. I must also mention that although this hotel is not central Rome they charge food and bar prices as if they were, which I think is unfair. Please don't be fooled by the statement that you have a view of Saint Peters Dome, you do but believe me it is about 4 to 5 miles away.
Great team in this hotel. Since the arrival to the departure all associates exhibited a genuine sense of interest. I can't remember her name but she was exceptionally attentive at arrival and proactively gave us valuable information. Blond, blue eyes and was working evening time. Thank you! Location wise, it all depends on your plans.
My family and I visited during a heatwave in Italy. By 1:00 am the room was well over 80 degrees. Management did everything they could to lower temp but eventually moved us. The move was appreciated however we were told when we checked in that there were no more king beds. Miraculously there was a room available. Word of advice from my experience that 4 star reviews in Europe are 3 star in the states. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and made up for any inconvenience. This hotel would be a great low cost option when staying in Rome.
I had an early flight out of Rome so I spent one night here prior to my flight. It is a short distance from the airport, about 15-20 minutes. I was returning a car, and checked into the hotel first. There is a gas station about one mile down the hill from the hotel for filling up a rental car prior to returning it to the airport. The shuttle bus is convenient, costs 5 euro, and runs frequently. The hotel lobby is immense. The hotel staff is very friendly, speaks English well, and is attentive. The rooms are large with comfortable beds and large bathrooms. The outdoor pool is very large and I had dinner poolside at their pizza restaurant (delicious). You are not really close to anything, but if you are flying in or out of Rome and needs an excellent hotel nearby, this is a great choice.
We were there for a few days visiting Rome. The hotel is located 250 meters from Gemelli train station, which allows you to go to the tourists hot spots easily. A ticket into town costs 1 euro and if you want to connect to the metro another 1,5 euro. Easily done with trains running every 15 min. The hotel also has a shuttle running to Vatican every hour for 3 euros per person each way. We prefer the train system (cheaper and has more options). Sophia (employee from frontdesk) provided us good tips for visiting from and helped with tours info. There are a few dinning options around the hotel pretty affordable. Check trip advisor. I would come back to this hotel for sure if visiting Rome again!
I am really conflicted with this review. It is a great hotel with an attentive and friendly staff, but it is really not close to anything (even though it looks like it on the map). There is no close public transportation. There is a hotel shuttle for a small fee to the Vatican but that is 20 minutes. It's a 30 minute cab ride to the Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain, and I didn't have good luck with Uber. Even Uber Black would not pick up rides that far out. As nice as it was, it was just too inconvenient.
