Hotel Caravaggio

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rooms are small but very nicely decorated and very clean. Generous amenties and breakfast had a lot of choices served by very accomodating staff. Execellent value for price in an excellent location.

Nice hotel, looks rough from the outside but once you get inside it's very nice. Staff was friendly and helpful and it was easy to get to the main tourist attractions, most were within walking distance the only taxi we needed was to Vatican and it was a 10 minute drive. Would definitely stay there again if I ever go back.

The location was very well/centrally located to all of the sightseeing. The WiFi worked only in the lobby and was a 4/10 at it's best. The free breakfast was perfect and the room was cleaned well. Elevator cost is 0.10 cents (Euro) per use.

It was a good stay in this hotel because the hotel's facilities were good and the staff was so kind. On the other hand the hotel is situated so close to the city centre (Colosseo, Traianus Forum, Fontana Trevi and so on..) and the public transport is also excellent near the hotel. Furthermore there are many good restaurantes, bars and shops in the area.

The hotel is located in a great part of rome (easy walking distance to most main sights). As with most 3 star places in Italy, it is a relatively basic room, but has the important stuff. Can be a bit loud at times, but overall a good stay.

location is central to most tourist activities, Italian style hotel, friendly staff.

We were mostly pleased with our hotel stay at the Caravaggio Hotel in Rome. From Termini, the hotel is only a few short blocks away, definitely walking distance if your bags have wheels. The hotel staff were professional and pleasant. We had a room overlooking the street and the size while on the small side was not cramped for the two of us. I have stayed in 5-star hotels that had smaller rooms. The WiFi was free which I was to learn was a rarity in Italy, so appreciate even more now! The rooms were very clean. The continental breakfast, including homemade cappuccino was included, which was nice to start the day off with juice and coffee and bread, cheese, ham, cereals, etc... We did start training in advance of our trip, but will say that for us, in our mid-50s, everything in Rome was within walking distance. The hotel is also very close to the Metro stop just two short blocks away, the metro is very safe and easy to use and will get you easily to most of Rome's major attractions. The only disappointments with the hotel were the inadequacy of the air conditioning in our room for the heat of the season, it was in the 90-100 degree range each day we were there. The staff did try to accommodate us to clean the A/C filter, and brought us a fan that made it very comfortable. They offered to move us to another room, but we were very satisfied with the room otherwise. The shower that others complain of, was more than adequate with good water pressure and adequate supply of hot water. No tubs. Elevator, quaint, but functional, and often we chose to use the stairs, but only out of personal preference. I would most likely stay at Caravggio again, because of convenience and price!

Being within blocks of the train station and the coliseum was a benefit for us. Otherwise it is a fairly unremarkable hotel. It was the cleanest hotel we stayed in while in Italy but if this is what passes for 3 stars in Italy I would hate to see what a one star hotel looks like.

The room was attractive and large by European standards, but the queen size bed was hard and uncomfortable. Our room didn't receive daily cleaning service (only there 2 days and didn't report it to the front desk until checkout because we got in late). Helpful staff, happy hour snacks, good breakfast, and excellent location still make for a good place to stay.

Pros: -Short walk to most major sites. -Supermarket located within a 5 min stroll Cons: -Really old building. The elevator attests to that.

Clean room. Well maintained. Boutique style. Everything you need is in 5 min walking distance. The staff is professional, but can be taken as unfriendly. This is the culture. You gotta love the 18th century elevator....lol! It works great, but looks like it should be part of a museum.

Enjoyed our stay here. Staff were professional but for the most part, unfriendly. Breakfasts were good and breakfast staff were very friendly and the service was great (capacinos were excellent). Room was clean and within walking distance to many attractions. Short walk to underground for vatican, etc.

I did not like this hotel. It is not close to any of the sites and my room was unpleasant. No internet access in the room and cell phone or 3G network is not available in the room either.

Location was ideal... 10 min walk to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, ext ext.... Less than a 3 min walk from the U and bus stops. Staff was great, pointing out great "local places" to eat instead of the expensive garbage around the main attractions. Continental breakfast was wonderful, coffee made to order, fresh croissants, bread, cereal cheeses, quite enough to tide you over until a late lunch. The rooms were perfect in my opinion. Bigger than some I have stayed in. Not huge but enough room for you to sleep, shower and get dressed comfortably. Oh, and a happy hour every night, wine and light finger foods. Would most definitely stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed every minute. Greeting us after a long flight the staff was delightful. He showed us to the beautiful filigree elevator door. Our luggage and the 3 of us filled the elevator, so he ran up the stairs to show us to our room. Breakfast was quite plentiful served in a lovely room. We loved the hotel and Rome.

The hotel was good. We travelled in October and the location is very convenient, close to Termini rail station and also to center of Rome and old ruins. The rooms are small but we expected it, so overall it was a good experience.

Hotel was very authentic, clean, great location. Close walking distance to the Pantheon, the fountain, the ruins. Nice Breakfast. Friendly staff.

Better than expected, professional staff, convenient location but good for young couples and singles.

This is a good 3 star hotel close to the train station if you want to take the train to Pisa or any were else. Good free Continental breakfast. Staff speaks English. The Wifi is iffy though

Hotel Caravaggio is very well located--close to major busses and the Metro. All of Rome was easily accessed. The room was clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. This is not a luxury hotel but it provided the necessities for a pleasant stay. My wife, son (over 18), and I thought that we would be happy to return to the hotel.
