We had a wonderful honeymoon stay at the Hotel Pineta Palace. The staff was warm, welcoming, and very helpful. The room was spacious, well appointed, and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The restaurant was very good and we enjoyed our meals there. Major tourist sites are easily accessible using public transportation that is a short walk away. We will definitely return here on our next visit.
The hotel is excellent in its appearance and the staff are very helpful rooms are very clean and well presented they are having the older rooms updated I see that some reviews are saying it is too far away from the centre of Rome all you have to do is google earth it’s location and then decide if it’s for you we decided it was situated away from the centre and facted in taxi costs journey times during busy parts of the day make the cost higher €30 was the highest we paid for a party of four which I do not think is an expensive trip remember the hotel staff know it’s not central to all the attractions do your homework first and enjoy your visit
Hotel was lovely and the rooms were very nice and clean and beds were comfortable. Had their pizza at the bar one evening and it was very good. It is a ways to see anything in Rome. We had to walk a good 1/2 mile to get to a bus stop and travel about 20 minutes to get to any sight seeing attractions in Rome. Even though the Hotel is in a residential area there was nothing around it....no grocery, pharmacy, park...nothing. I think Great Adventures gets pleasure in putting people so far away from attractions they spend half the day traveling to get to see what they traveled to Italy for!
This was not a four star Hotel or we did not get a four star room. we were stuck on the top floor with a broken heater. The whole trip was ruined by this which added to our horrible experience . The hotel appeared friendly at first but were most unhelpful when things were not as clear cut as we thought. The hotel was in the middle of no where and not in central Rome. Very Bad
The hotel accommodation was arranged by the tour group. Two nights. The room is clean and decor is modern style. There was a balcony looking into the street. A small frig and a very small safe. The bed is slightly hard but not a big issue. There was not a single English language TV station. It would be nice to watch the news at the end of the day. Breakfast buffet was OK. We had an early flight and had to leave before the restaurant was open for breakfast. They had snack bags for us to take along. Location is a little far from Rome city center. We took a taxi back from the Spanish Steps area and it was 22 Euros. Overall, we were please with the hotel.
On arrival the reception were very helpful and friendly. We had booked a package so only had a standard room. The room was a decent size with a balcony to the front which overlooked several flats. The room was a little tired but very clean, it also had a small fridge that was a bonus. there were no tea or coffee making facilities so we had taken our own kettle! The main downside that we found was that none of the walls or floors are soundproofed so you can hear next door quite clearly and people moving around upstairs. Breakfast was included, this was a buffet style with plenty to choose from and of reasonable quality. You could eat as much or little as you wanted. We found all the staff in the hotel very helpful and friendly. If you have a car, there is an underground carpark which is a little tight in places but it is free and secure.
Our tour group stayed here, we arrived a day early into Rome so stayed an additional night. I made a mistake with the booking date, they fixed it for me but not before telling me I'd made a mistake about 15-20 times at the counter. "You made a mistake!". Yes, I made a mistake. "Your mistake!" Yes, my mistake. "It's a mistake you have made!" Yes, it's a mistake I have made. "Your mistake!". Yes, my mistake. "You made a mistake!". Yes, I made a mistake. "A mistake!". Yes, a mistake. "Your mistake!". Yes, my mistake. And on. And on. And on. It was late and we were exhausted, otherwise we would have simply walked out and gone elsewhere. It was like an Italian Fawlty Towers. The room, a Junior Suite, was spacious and clean. The decor is very dated. If you're into retro kitsch, this is the hotel for you, stay in and soak it up, it's the real McCoy! Balcony was spacious and had a lovely view in one direction, the other direction was just old suburban apartments. Location was very inconvenient. A 10-15min walk to the bus stop. Buses unreliable, one day I waited 15mins, one day I waited 40mins. Then it's a long trip through he suburbs into the city. Nothing really to visit nearby. You're either at the hotel or you're in the city. Breakfast wasn't very nice - tinned fruit, lots of sweet pastries and biscuits, overcooked eggs one day, runny egg goo the next day, sliced cold meats and cheese. They did bring me a little basket of gluten-free bread on request (but could not toast it). Coffee was great (little espresso machines to make your own) and tea selection fine. HIGHLIGHT: The breakfast staff. They were so lovely! Every morning they were cheerful and pleasant and so helpful. Definitely the most positive asset of this establishment is their breakfast staff team. Check-out was pandemonium in the lifts! The elevators are tiny and hundreds of people are trying to exit at once but they won't fit in the lifts with their luggage. There were whole families hogging lifts, grabbing luggage, going back up, coming back down... we were waiting for ages just to get up to our room during check-out time. It was a bit crazy, lots of urgent yelling/screaming in between floors when people couldn't get on, aaaaaargh! We moved after 3 days to Lilium Hotel in the city and it was absolutely lovely, excellent location, great value, 24/7 reception staff, walking distance to everywhere, much much better. Unfortunately, I would not recommend staying at Hotel Pineta Palace. It is definitely just for cheap tour groups, with a tour bus you get on in the morning and get dropped off from in the evening and the helplessness of the cheap tour company having booked all your accommodation for you. Don't go there.
My husband and I stayed 7 nights at this hotel and totally loved it. The hotel rooms were clean, breakfast was good and the staff, I have to commend them; very helpful, friendly and polite. They sold the bus tickets for us at the reception and provided us with a map to tour the city. The bus stop is about 7 minutes walk from the hotel, bus 49 takes you straight to the Vatican where you can see the museum and St Peter's Basilica. Bus 446 takes you to Cornelia where you can catch the metro to termini station if you want to travel to places like Florence, Milan etc. We really enjoyed our stay in Rome and we will be back again next year. Definitely staying at this hotel again.
We stayed 3 nights in one of their suites and I can highly recommend it! What an amazing view 7th floor room 706 we booked direct / which meant free minibar and there were no arguments! Room fab 😍wonderful views not far from bus stop to metro- staff friendly and helpful breakfast ok, great value for money 💰
Rooms were nice and clean, staff was very friendly. Free underground parking was a ;plus. We didn't want to drive in Rome, so we found the public transportation good.... You can take a nearby bus straight to the Vatican (about 15-20 minutes), or take a nearby bus to the Metro (for the Colosseum, etc.) You can even walk further straight to a metro. It's in a good neighborhood. Here's a restaurant tip.... Shardana. Small family place, very nice. A moderate walk (1/2 mile?).
