Hotel Priscilla3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We recently stayed at the Hotel Priscilla for two days while visiting Rome. This was the last leg of our Italian vacation and we were exhausted from exploring Venice and Florence for five days. While the hotel's antiquated decor fit with the feel of Rome, the lack of updates and amenities made it far from the oasis we desperately needed. It seems that there were people who actually reside in the building, as well. The room itself was small and sparse with only one accessible electrical outlet. The shower did not drain well which made water pool ankle deep - not ideal under any circumstances, but certainly not desirable in a noticeable old hotel bathroom. Hotel staff, while not unpleasant, weren't particularly welcoming or helpful. When asked about tour recommendations, the hurried answer was useless. Location-wise, the hotel is a good 20 minute walk to many of the sites - Colosseum, Vatican City, Parthenon. Having a knowledge of the local mass transit would be helpful for navigation.
The hotel is clean and small and noisy. It is on the first floor on a busy street, so the street noise is very noticeable. Also, it is very small, the lobby is very close to the rooms, so you can hear people talking at the front desk. They also charged 5 Euro to access the wifi internet connection. I think this is unreasonable. I stayed in other hotels in Italy, and other places where the wifi connection was included as part of the service... like electricity.
