Hotel Cilicia3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is quite the worst hotel I have stayed in in Italy. The hotel is a little dated and it's starting to show - definitely needs some T.L.C. Lots of little niggles - peeling wallpaper/paint in places, ring-pulls missing off drawer/cupboard handles, couple of broken tiles in the bathroom. Breakfast was average, We had two serious problems - on arrival, the air con. in our room didn't work, and then in the room we were moved to the fridge wasn't working properly - to be fair, the guy on reception was very helpful and sorted both matters straightaway. Two days when we had been out all day, we came back and found that, when the room had been done, no milk or coffee had been left on the breakfast bar. And to cap it all, probably due to my inexperience at this time of year, we found the on-site restaurant was shut for August - a good walk was needed to find somewhere reasonable. All in all, I wouldn't recommend
Don’t usually write reviews but I am moved to do so by an absolute shambles of a breakfast..rubbish cereals, awful juice, rubbish bread I could go on but won’t....if breakfast is important to you....don’t do this As for the hotel ...v small shower facilities and pretty much ‘ it’s glory hath departed ‘ ..ok to stop at but not much more
Hi, this hotel is very dated. The staff speak minimum English so not good for help. The bar area is antiquated, they don’t have gin, wine just a fridge of beers and dusty looking spirits. We asked in advance of our holiday for a quiet room and my husband had been unwell with a suspected heart attack. They put us in the room above the patio area with a full blown function on the first night. Thank goodness only here for 3 days as it was a poor 3 star. Bed covered in hairs, wholes in the net curtains and broken glass and tiles etc.. could list endless faults. Good location and close to the airport but definitely wouldn’t return!!
In booking.com said it is 4*hotel. In reality it is a lie. This hotel is 3* and room small. We were three, but we got small room. We were just in beds, no chance to walk around room. Shower very thin and small. Just stand and don,’tmove. Not possible :) 11/2 km walk to next metro. ½ hour walk to Colosseum. Some restaurant and shop near cheaper than center rome. Breakfast cold and very basic. I will not book it again
This hotel is good if you’re on a budget and can’t afford to stay in the centre of Rome. It is close to transport to take you into the main attractions promptly. It was comfortable and friendly though the only drawback is the extremely small shower which is visible from the hotel website photos.
Ok first of all some of the reviews below are very misplaced. The walls are not paper thin, you can hear other conversations if they are being loud but hey, welcome to a room surrounded by other rooms! Also let's be honest, we are all here because we chose Rome hotels and selected "price low to high" this is not a 5* hotel and all of the grievances I have read are reflected in the price. Not Central - Reflected in the price. Cold Breakfast unless you pay extra - Reflected on the price. Small Room - Reflected in the price. The breakfast was just fine, nice pastries and cereal, also bread for toast and jams. As for being central, there is a magical thing called Google maps that shows you where everything is before you book. Technology eh? The MET is 20 minutes walk away and the Colusseum is 30 minutes walk away. None of the sights in Rome are near each other and the public transport is far better than Englands, €7 for a 24 hour pass and it gets you on Trains, buses, trams and Metro. If you want a hotel that is located where the locals live, the real Italian people living real Italian lives. This is the hotel for you, the Cafes and bars are for locals and the prices reflect this, 2 restaurants nearby, Managerié and Quattro 22 were amazing, GO TO THEM BOTH! This is a proper suburb where you can absorb the culture, meet real people, not tourist hunters and inflated prices. However if you want to surround yourself with the tourists and see all the amazing sights in Rome, 20 minutes walk connects you to everything, unless you want to ride the bus then its 2 minutes. The staff were amazing and could not help enough. If I come back to Rome, I would come here again no problem.
The walls are so thin, you can hear every word of peoples conversations in the next room. The hotel is about a 30 minute walk from the colosseum so not very central. The breakfast was standard European, cereals, fruit, pastries etc. You had to hand your room keys in every time you left the hotel which I did not like as when you came to pick them up, you ended up standing around waiting for someone to come back to reception to give them back to you. The wifi was slow and the rooms were old fashioned and needed attention. You also have to pay a small room fee per night staying at this hotel. Overall, I did not have a good experience.
During our stay air conditioning didn’t work, wi-fi is not high speed as advertised, it’s low speed. Apart from that everything was fine. Friendly staff, limited but tasty breakfast. Would be appropriated if the city tax information would be given in the beginning of our stay not at the end.
We stayed here and it was a fantastic hotel, it was clean, tidy and the room we were given was fantastic. Very spacious and although close to yhe Road very sound proof. Beds were comfy and bathroom was huge with all required amenities. Staff were friendly. We loved the area this hotel was In and it is a 10 minute walk to the metro station, 2 minutes to local shops. Although not central it is not too far out we walked to the colesseum in 30 minutes. Alot of good things to say about this hotel. Definately recommend and will 100% stay here again!
We’ve literally just left this hotel, firstly the Shower is ridiculously tiny, I am 5ft 3, and average build and I struggled! My 6ft 1 partner had no hope of showering comfortably! The bed was really hard, I didn’t mind this but my partner woke up aching. They need to put proper cups in the room, drinking tea from a polystyrene cup in a hotel room isn’t what you’d expect. The room (207) was ok, but the curtains were ripped. It just needs some love and attention. We only walked to and from into the town once, it’s a long walk but pleasant. The breakfast was nice and always had a good selection available. Definitely take comfy shoes and take time to plan your route around. Rome is beautiful, I’d love to return but would probably stay elsewhere.
