Hotel Cilicia3.0 out of 5.0

The hotel was nice and clean, but somewhat dated. Our room was at the back and was quiet and comfy. Breakfast was adequate but beware the times when there's a trip load in as it rather resembles a rugby scrum! Only ate at the hotel 1 of the 4 evenings and although the price compared well with local eateries the food was not as good. Challenged the receptionist when we paid the city tax. We were charged €32 instead of €24. One euro per person per night per hotel star equals 24 not 32! Quick as a flash the retort, "Ah, but we're NEARLY a 4 star!! Well positioned for transport links.
Nothing special about it but room was fine and bed comfortable. Shower cubicle not huge but I'm 6 foot and it worked fine (once you'd waited a while for water to run hot!) Breakfast pretty standard continental (though without the scrambled eggs and bacon that most places seem to do). it was fine - lots of it and included rolls/bread/cheese/ham/yoghurt/cereal/fruit/croissants. I think it might have got a bit samey if we'd been staying more than 2 nights Staff were helpful apart from not being able to understand why either of us could access the internet the first evening, though it had magically appeared by later that night. 10 minute walk from Re di Roma metro, but only 2 minutes from the very useful 628 bus that goes to Plaza Venezzia and via Corso Also very handy for the Appian Way
I prepaid for the single room for four nights and it was my first experience in Rome. It was way far from metro station and i got so tired arriving there. Very helpful and nice staff. Small but very clean room. In a local area and quiet, good night sleep at nights. Breakfast was good. My room also had a balcony with a view to hotel garden, i loved it. definitely recommend this place
Basically staff were rude. At reception we were told about the tax, fine i knew about this, on check out we tried to pay on card and got told cash only, luckily we had some, the man was rude and blunt and should not be customer facing. It was not clean and i think i got bitten while i slept. The curtains were black, black with mould Brekfast was nice the first day, bored second day as exactly the same and third day surprise surprise same again. Basic breakfast food with 0 variations Our room faced the main road and on saturday a party was going on till far too late. I live under a flight path so im use to noise but i woke up every night due to the noise of mopeds or cars zooming up the road. Not impressed. Good 15 minutes from metro station so not convenient. Not the best at all.
Hotel Cilicia would definitely require to be freshened up! It has a very old fashioned style, which can be charming, but in this case it transmits a neglected aspect. The restaurant is opened during very reduced hours and the breakfast is very poor. The staff is correct but not necessarily friendly. In terms of location it is located on a main road that has a lot of traffic but that does not offer convenient ways of transportation to go to the center of Rome.
Hotel Cilicia is an average 3* hotel that could be better described as 2* with extras. Our room was a decent size, with a mini bar/fridge and built in wardrobes with additional storage and a good bathroom, although the shower was an experience and not in a good way, as it was small even for me at 5'6" with very little room to move, also for 4 mornings, the water was either just warm or even cold, not pleasant at all, and only after the forth day did the hotel confirm there was an issue with the boiler! It is within 1km walk of San Giovanni metro, that is just a few stops from the centre of Rome, we brought a 72hr ticket that was very reasonable, but also found the €1.50 tickets good for single trips. The breakfast was typical continental, that was the same each day, cheese, ham croissant and pastries, yogurts etc. coffee and juices, although only orange. It was OK but changing it up a little, or offering something hot would have made a big difference. The breakfast room was strangely set with mostly tables for 4 or more, and tables remained uncleared or reset for other guests. For 2 days I was attending a business conference for 2 days, and not having a car, I relied on booking taxis as the only sensible option, the staff unfortunately didn't quite grasp the need for urgency, yes traffic was bad on the main road, but as we found there was an underpass close to the hotel that would have made getting a taxi a lot quicker, we were even left to find a taxi one evening, but given poor directions that made it impossible to locate the taxi rank. We didn't use the bar, although it was quite sparsely stocked, and on the last evening after returning after a meal at the local pizza restaurant at around 8:30 to find it deserted of all staff and guests! There doesn't seem to be a good work ethic from front desk or breakfast staff, although our room was kept clean each day, so no issues there. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for the reasons above.
Cilicia Hotel Rome, is a lovely hotel just on the outskirts of the main city center, in fact its about a 15 minute bus ride away. The room was a decent size for a budget priced hotel and was clean and nicely decorated. The staff went the extra mile to make us more than welcome, and dining out on the hotel patio gave it that extra touch. In particular, I would really like to mention the hotel waiter, who gave us tips and suggestions for sightseeing on our final day in this fantastic city. My wife and I couldn't fault the hotel, and would most certainly stay there again if we ever manage to re-visit the city.
Small hotel about 1.5km from the nearest metro station, so a long way from Vatican city any tourist areas, metro is fast and efficient if you wish to risk it, I had two pickpockets try to steal my passport luckily I caught them.
Stayed here for four nights with my hubby - for my 50th birthday. Lovely hotel. Rooms were gorgeous. The only downside was the proximity to the main road but it wasn't a major problem. We ate there twice during our stay and the food was delish. All staff very very helpful, very accommadating. Special thank you to Gian Paolo (?sp) who went out of his way to make our stay a pleasant one. Reccommended some places to visit that we would not have known about otherwise.
Wouldn't stay here again if they paid me deffo not a nice place ... door frames hanging off shower cubicles too small to move about in breakfast wasn't fresh ants in the fruit juices no stock in the bar an absolute age from Rome !! Just don't book this hotel!!
