Hotel Cilicia3.0 out of 5.0

We had a lovely time here. The staff were very friendly and helped us with directions to the metro and to decent restaurants, It's not the middle of Rome so be prepared for a 15 minute wall to St Giovanni metro. The meals at the hotel deserve a mention too, especially when you have walked 12 miles around the city! There are some nice restaurants within 10 minutes but you have to know where they are,
Nice clean hotel with very friendly staff. The breakfast gave us an excellent start to the day with a selection of meats, cheeses, cereals and pastries. The room was spacious and the air con was a lifesaver as the temperatures were in the mid thirties during our stay. Our room faced the main road but the double glazing did a great job of blocking out the sound of the traffic. We enjoyed relaxing after a day's sightseeing with a beer or two in the hotel garden. Getting into central Rome, we used the Re de Roma metro station which is about fifteen minutes walk away. We also walked to the colosseum which took us about half an hour and was a very pleasant stroll. The area around the hotel always felt safe - yes there is a bit of graffiti about but no more than you'd see in any other European city. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. Being outside the city centre, these were much less expensive than eating near the tourist hotspots. There are loads of nice places on nearby Via Gallia and on the main road that the hotel is on. We had an excellent steak, four beers and bread at Leon Ristorante for 35 euros each. We arrived at 10pm on a Sunday night and grabbed a couple of pizzas and a bottle of wine at a place called Picnic near to the hotel. Great pizzas and only 22 euros for the whole meal.
Well booked this place for 3 nights from 16th to 19th June '17 during our Italy trip. Well this hotel is in no where when it comes to Roma city. The nearest metro station is St. Giovanni which is 2.2 Kms from the hotel and there is no alternate option other than to walk down there. Taxis are worthless as you cover a distance of 7 kms in almost 40 minutes so its even worse than Delhi traffic during peak seasons. Though there are lot of eating joints around the hotel but again its location is such that its neither close to any site like colosseum or any church nor it is close to Metro station. Leonardo Da Vinci Fiummiccinno Airport is 40 minutes drive on taxi. To talk about hotel, staff is really rude when it comes to hospitality as they don't know how to treat their guests. To ask them anything is an awful experience as they will tell you to come to reception for everything. Breakfast was very limited with coffee and juice vending machines. Theres no view to watch outside the hotel. Hotel Wifi is poor and there' s practically no connection to Wifi in almost every part of the hotel. No offence but i will not recommend anybody to stay in this property.
We had 4 days at Cilicia, we were a little worried due to some of the comments about where the hotel was. However it is the perfect location. It's a Lovely walk to the Metro which gets you to all the main attractions. Again we were a little worried about using the Metro but it is very easy to use! There is a little kiosk which sells day passes! We walked to the Colosseum, again a beautiful walk as you can call and have a drink as you pass several lovely bars and cafes. Located near the Hotel there are several great bars and lovely restaurants nearby! The local people where lovely to us. The staff at the hotel are very helpful too! It's not 5 star but it's clean and has lots of charm. Will deff return and recommend!
Me and my friend (both 21) stayed here for our trip to Rome at the beginning of June. The staff were friendly throughout the stay and the hotel was nice and clean. Our room was on the small size however it was fine as we were only in it to sleep and get ready. The room had a kettle and coffee/tea supply, a mini fridge, a safe and a tv - however I couldn't find any English channels. There was also only a shower in our en-suite and the window had been plastered up from the outside which was odd!? However overall it was nice and it made do for our 4 night stay as we were hardly in the room. The hotel itself is quite far out from Rome city centre, however the hotel does have good access to transport. The reception staff are lovely and happy to order you a taxi, which to the colosseum was about 10-13€ depending on the time of day and which way the taxi driver took you (taxi is on a meter). About 500meters from the hotel there is a bus station where you can pay for a ticket and just hop on and off the buses as you please (as long as it's still valid obviously), one of the buses (673) will take you just up the road from the colosseum. There is also the metro which is approximately 1000meters from the hotel, again you can buy a ticket, we bought one which lasted 72hrs so it covered the majority of our stay for 18€ each. I'm pretty sure this can also be used on the buses as well! The metro was great as it could take you right to the Spanish steps or close to the Vatican City, you could also switch onto another train at termini to get right outside the colosseum and once the ticket was purchased you can use it as many times as you please during the day. Breakfast at the hotel was basic, their was croissants, fruit, toast/bread, cereal and yogurts. This could be improved however for us it was enough. So overall I'd rate the hotel 4* as it was a pleasant stay. *other tips on Rome: Wear comfortable shoes!!! Watch your bag for thieves Don't take roses off the men who walk the streets, even when they say it's free they will then ask you for money or snatch the rose back off you. It's expensive to eat/drink around the main tourist sights (I.e, 10€ for dessert, 8-13€ for a cocktail and mains were about 10-14€ some even higher) I personally found it better doing tours around the sights which are about 60€ for a 3hr tour, expensive but worthwhile- as long as you don't mind the Italian accent and can understand them well. The colosseum looks beautiful at night when it's lit up and there is a lovely restaurant at the top of the stairs/hill with a little terrace where you can enjoy the view over dinner! Otherwise Rome is a lovely place to visit and I'd recommend this hotel to people who are on short visits to Rome, who don't mind walking to get the bus or train and will hardly be in the room. :)
We stayed recently for three days. This hotel is a lovely hotel and our room was great. We had a lovely room with a bath but it didn't have a stopper for it but we solved the problem by stuffing it with a sock!! I preferred the shower but my husband liked the bath. We also had a small balcony which looked over into a courtyard. The staff were very good. We asked for ice for our room when we came back every night and they were very obliging as we liked to have a drink in our room and relax as too shattered after all the sightseeing. My only complaint is it is too far out. We found the nearest Metro station third street on the right De Roma but its quite a wee walk. Graffiti seems to be everywhere so quite daunting to walk along the street at night and very dark so we just got by on carry out pizzas etc at night. Had a good time but too far out.
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights as a conclusion to our silver wedding Anniversary year. On first impression the interior hotel had a olde worlde but in a modern exterior looking block building. Reception very welcoming and helpful and polite on our arrival. The room was neat tidy clean, bed very firm but neither of us slept too well. Bathroom nice but shower so small that if you dropped the soap you would have to turn the water off open door retrieve soap close door turn water back on!!. Breakfast- well very basic only hot items to have is brown or white toast. The rest consists of cheese meats sweet items buns cakes etc. Cereals fresh fruit yoghurt. Tea coffee machine juice machine- all self service. Breakfast staff non talkative. No welcome. As both my wife and I work in hotels we were a little disappointed. Very busy main road by the hotel!!!. As for touring -- it's a good 30-35 minute walk to the coliseum then rome itself beyond that!!! Plenty good walking shoes needed. Don't get me wrong hotel was nice and we had a pleasant stay - but feel it could have been better.
This was an good stay. Beds comfortable and spacious. Room was lovely with nice antechamber with couch and small balcony facing south. Bathroom was large and very clean with good shower cubicle and marble deep sink. Shower had good pressure, but unfortunately at peak times the water temp was just barely lukewarm. We were lucky however and the as the weather was warm even in march, this was tolerable. Breakfast was good with a wide variety of fruits yoghurts cereals and pastry / breads and range of Juices and hot drinks. Lovely courtyard to eat out in better weather.
hotel was on a very busy road. this did not worry us from the point of view of noise disturbance. Our room was good size and comfortable, good size bathroom. a bit dated but overall good and very clean, with fresh white linen. We did not like blankets and throw(cover) as one cannot image it can be laundered each visit, whereas duvet covers can. good breakfast choices. very pleasant and friendly staff.
We had really nice time in Italy and the accommodation is a really important part of the holiday. The hotel was really clean, in central location approximately 10 minutes or less walk to the nearest tube station, It was nicely furbished, friendly staff. The breakfast was really good it had many healthy choices. Free wifi was also helpful to stay in touch with family and friends. I would recommend this hotel. We had pleasant stay.
