Thanks to the Hotel staff..!! Our stay was awesome at the place. Thanks Jasmine for the upgradation. Thanks for the complimentary bottle of wine. And we are sorry we didn't have it, being teetotalers. Breakfast awesome... Rooms awesome... View from room awesome... Residential area so very quiet... A little far from city centre but connectivity is fine. The nearest metro station is Batistini which is 4 to 5 stops away by bus. On our day of Rome visit, ATAC was on strike so had some difficulty in reaching the tourist spots. The place is highly recommended... Just go for it..
Just got back from a business trip to Rome. Stayed for five nights in this hotel. It is located to the very edge of the inner city circle, near the Pineto Park, great value for money and well deserved category and four stars, great for business stay or larger groups of tourists, because the hotel has own underground parking included in the price for cars and buses which is an outstanding opportunity for tourist visits and sightseeing in Italy in the sense of parking and leaving your own car and wandering around Rome with a local bus or metro and you do not have to look around and pay expensive city parking. Or if you are adventurous enough and fit for it, you will have a wonderful walk to the Vatican's which is 5km away, looking around, shops, little streets and nice rome buildings. For only 5 Euros, the hotel offers City meal bag (sandwich, sweets, water and fruit) just enough to overcome the hunger of your hiking and wandering and will keep you well nourished to the nearest city center fancy (or less fancy and cheaper:))) restaurants. The rooms are spacious, clean, with water heater, daily maintained, the room's complimenatry basket is full of all the necessities for such a stay, even if you forgot something at home (a sponge for cleaning shoes :)). A nice detail is the everydays "refuels" complementary tea and coffee bags, the room was on the sixth floor with a perfect view of the dome of St. Peter, the greenery of the park, a quiet and peaceful location for a peaceful sleep. The whole staff is commended, with a special emphasis on the people from the reception. The food is excellent and delicious, the breakfast is rich with a huge choice of bread, croissants, pies, salami and ham, hot dogs, eggs in all shapes, fruit salads and compotes, oat snowflakes, a small downside is that they didn.t offer cheese, cucumber and fresh tomatoes for breakfast . The restaurant at night also had a great selection of dishes and a menu with prices up to 25 euros to make a complete meal and a favor more than enough for one person, by their own choice and a combination of food. My compliment-they cooked with special attention .Thank you- Hotel Pineta,s stuff for your hospitality!!!
We have just come back from a 10 day stay at this hotel. Originally booked an economy room but got up-graded to a comfort room (509) as soon as we arrived which was nice. Great room, clean, tidy with a great view from the balcony of St. Peters dome in the distance. Cleaned and fresh towels every day. Shower nice. No kettle in room, but we always take our own anyway, so not a problem. Now, this is Italy, and as is the norm, nothing is cheap here!!!. Drinks in the bar (Beer and a gin and tonic - 13 Euro's. Food in the restaurant, not a great choice. If you want something different than pasta or pizza, your very limited for choice. Yet again, quite expensive. Reception staff are excellent and very helpful. This hotel is quite away from the sights and a 10 min bus ride from the Metro station in Cornelia. The bus stop from the hotel is a 5 min walk. The buses to get are at the very 1st stop. These are the 446 or the 980. These will take you to the Metro. GET BUS TICKETS FROM RECEPTION!!!. We just jumped on one expecting to pay onboard, no..they have machines on them for pre bought tickets.These can also be bought from Tabacchi shops. Most of the main sites to visit, Vatican etc are reachable from the nearest Metro stops. Get plenty of maps, the Metro/Bus one is really good for finding your way around. Eating out is yet again expensive and not very varied. Really struggled to find a restaurant that did meat or fish dishes. On the hole, lovely hotel, great place to visit.
We stayed here for 3 nights, and it was all that you needed.Its clean, beds comfy, there's a bar, which we used, restaurant we didn't get to use, breakfast was just the ticket, not only continental, but bacon and egg too.Whilst we were there we had a thunder storm, the bathroom developed a leek and they moved us with no problem. I believe the views are from the 5 th floor , so you could ask. Taxi range from 13-20 euro ,we got a taxi from piazza Cavour it was 13 euros.You can get the 49 bus from the second bus stop down the road, it takes you to the last stop, piazza Cavour, tickets from reception, you put them in the machine on the bus, when you get to the piazza there's a statue, when you stand at the back to the right walk down this way across the bridge and you can pick up the hop on hop off bus, to the left Trevi fountain, steps etc,but getting back to the hotel, just right, staff lovely, and nearly all friendly, but we all have off days. We went sight seeing on my birthday all day, when we came back there's was a bottle of prosecco on ice waiting for me with a note happy birthday, it made my day, how thoughtful and kind was that from the staff.When your going home there's scales down stairs for weighing cases, one euro.Would we go back, yes, we go for seeing the beautiful things to see, we arnt at the hotel all day, so just what you need, if you want more then pay more, but what a waste when you have all you need at this hotel.
This hotel was booked for a friend and I by Bargain Late Holidays, this hotel is far from Rome city centre. We were given an economy room, the bed and pillow felt like cardboard and we found it very difficult to sleep. Thr breakfast was mainly cold ham and cheese witch sweet pastry.
Nice hotel halfway between the GRA beltway and the city centre. It is close to the Via Salaria a North of the Olympic village. So not a good location if you are in Rome as a tourist. The common areas and restaurant are nice enough but the halls and rooms show quite a bit wear and tear. Rooms have balconies but nothing much to see from the balcony, the hotel is in a suburban area wich is technically still Rome but ti will take you a while on a weekday to make it to the tourist attractions of Rome.
Lovely hotel and staff In the suburbs of Rome but with excellent service to the centre and transfer to the airport Room with balcony over looking the city .The Vatican very prominent both day and night Complementary bottle of Prosseco and nibbles sent to room with card to wish my daughter a happy birthday Would definately visit again
The hotel is situated a bit of a way the town centre of Rome, but is a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport with a fixed rate tariff price which is good. Also there are local buses into the Vatican which were fine although you had to wait a while for these only on Friday though the other week days they were more regular. The front desk staff were professional and welcoming and quite helpful. They gave us a map and we could purchase bus tickets from the reception which was very handy at €1.49 per one way ticket. The room was clean and tidy, quite basic but with everything you require really for a short stay. The bed was very firm and did hurt my back over a couple of the nights but using two pillows helped. Also the leaflet they provide in the room is out of date, there is no shuttle bus and no fitness room so ignore that. The shower leaked but was hot and powerful which was great and the water easily mopped up. The maid tidied away the wet towels from this leak which was good as the floor didn't stay wet for long. The breakfast was a standard continental selection with processed meat, bread and cheeses, some fruit and a few basic various cereals, and pastries on offer, the croissants were very nice. The restaurant manager was a bit grumpy and wouldn't let us walk out of the restaurant in the evening, we just wanted a short cut but he wouldn't allow it. We were also charged for something we didn't know what it was on the last night although we did order a bottle of mineral water so perhaps it was that, but €8 for water seemed a bit too steep!! The deal we got was a last minute one and reasonable in price so overall we had a good stay there, with everything we required for an Italian city break. Simple, not fussy, cheap and cheerful with no frills. Also worth mentioning the bar was good serving some lovely cocktails! However If you want to be closer to the sights you'll need to spend more to stay closer to them in the centre.
From the moment we walked in we were treated with respect and dignity. The staff take ownership and help is always at hand whether it was to do with how to get to the colloseum or a room change to surprise my wife for her birthday with a room with a view. Marco, Jan Franco and all the other staff in the bar and restaurant were all superb. The breakfast was amazing as was the restaurant cuisine. The only downside was the walls being a little thin so the noisy neighbours kept us awake and I think rooms should have an iron and ironing board as well as coffee, tea and water available as most hotels in the UK do offer this. However, the overall experience of the hotel was simply amazing. I would highly recommend it and definitely go again. Thank you to all the staff for making our visit a memorable one for all the right reasons. A fine example of Italian hospitality :)
The hotel was clean comfortable and friendly although i would not say it was worth 4 stars. The breakfast was adequate to fill up for the day. The main issue is the distance from the sights of Rome the hotel is. It took us a minimum of 45 minutes to get to town in the morning abd after 9 anywhere up to 2 and half hours - with buses often just not turning up even though they are timetabled too. Around the hotel there is little and you can't buy any drinks or snacks. Was fine to sleep in but would not stay here again.
