Hotel Contilia

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For years we stayed a another hotel in the same Esquillino neighborhood - once it changed ownership, we needed to find a new home in Rome. After a lot of research of the dozens of hotels close to the Roma Termini, we found Contilia and were happy we found it. Clean, great staff, 5 minute walk to Termini, surrounded by dozens of good restaurants, close to Rome attractions and Metro stations. Our new home in Rome!!

This is a well positioned hotel only 2 minutes walk from the Rome termini where there is access to buses,the metro and trains , you can also walk to the colosseum palatine hill and the trevi fountain within 20 minutes the rooms are basic and small but as we were out most of the time this was not an issue. the rooms were clean and well appointed and the staff friendly and helpful breakfast was ok but could improved with a few tomatoes , not too much to ask in Italy! also there is only one machine for coffee and hot water so there is a constant queue for a cup of tea . because the hotel is in the centre of Rome it can be a bit noisy late at night and early morning (although we were there for the six nations rugby so it could have been the thousands of Brits making all the noise ! ) but all in all a very pleasant stay. .

Hotel is economy class, it is the perfect to stay if you need just where to sleep. Breakfast is quite good, but nothing special. Rooms are small and not luxuries. It is good choise if you dont want to waist a lot of money for the hotel. The place is near the train station not very safe, but not far way from the popular Rome objects. The staff in the reception is very pleasant.

My fiancée and I stayed here for three days. The service is very good as well as the shower. The room wasn’t very big, but it was clean and really cozy. The ac wasn’t working properly and the room got to hot during the night. The breakfast was great, different options. Internet worked well and the localization of the hotel is great!

Was planning on staying there for 3 nights in december and have been booked for 3 months. Today they suddenly cancelled my booking! Had to replan and rebook everything. When i contacted customer service, their reply was that they are busy working and cannot contact me about their policy and that it wasn’t “his job”. I may add that it was in such a rude manner in which they responded with. I don’t recommend booking your holiday here!

Would not recommend this hotel for a comfortable stay. The location is good with metro and bus stop nearby but the hotel is average. No proper facilities and the staff is almost negligent.The food can be better as well. I would recommend not to go for it, if budget is not low.

This location was perfect due to its closeness to the termini (train station) and restaurants. My wife suffers from claustrophobia and although we reserve a room on a lower level they tried to guide us to to an adjoining building and "house" us on a fourth floor. We refused due to having to take an elevator to and from the hotel room. They then tried to "put us up" in a room with an extremely small window (nothing like what we saw on the web site). After refusing this room stating that this was not what we paid for (situation was starting to get stressful). A young Middle Eastern lady assisted us by "allocating" what we considered at this point the best option. It was a larger room on the second floor with a street view. Room was a higher priced room but we were told that we did not need to pay additional cost. We had just arrived from the US and had another reservation for the same hotel for a week later (after returning from Venice, Pisa and Florence) and returning home to the US from here. When we returned to the hotel a week later they were a lot more accommodating and pleasant. The room (on both stays) were clean, spacious (taking into consideration that this was Europe), the bathroom was clean, shower stall was very small and uncomfortable, towels were of a paper texture (like trying to dry your face and body with paper towels). Breakfast area was pleasantly large and accommodating. Plenty of food and drinks (hot coffee, tea, a variety of juices, fruit, danish, croissant, cereal, etc.). The staff was very helpful when we were checking out and needed transportation to get to the airport. Would return to this hotel during a future trip to Rome. However, would call the hotel to get reservation guarantees... Good hotel but not the best one in town!!!

We were greeted rudely from. The moment we check in by a Spanish young girl from Peru, telling us to leave passports and to come back in 30 min. While she would enter our information. In the system. Then they us to pay for the city tax... Which Is ok. We had planned to do a trip outside of Rome but had booked same hotel after the trip . Then the same girl told us that we didn't pay for the city tax , and started yelling at my husband in front of 2 guest who were sitting in the waiting area.. i told her that i was going to write a bad review of the hotel and she said I could do whatever I wanted that she didn't care....I ask to speak to a manager or her boss. She said he wasn't in . Our room had a bad bad smell like of a dead rat. The heating system had a loud noise it was nearly impossible to sleep the first night. Wich got fix the following night by the nice handyman . The location is great a few blocks from termini station . The food is basic like in every hotel. I wouldn't recommend this hotel , I suggest always reading the reviews.

Cannot fault the location as it is very close to station. However, the room needs an update. Breakfast spread was ok and croissant and pastries are cold. Bath towels are more like large tea towels. For the price we pay we deserve real towels.

This is a nice hotel, free Wi-Fi and a nice breakfast. But the best part is its close location to so many great sidewalk restaurants and the central train station. We liked it so well that we returned the night before we flew home. A short 30 minute train ride the next morning on the Leonardo and we were at the airport. It was perfect!
