Hotel Rome Pisana4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Preface: Stayed here for the last 3 days of an Amalfi Coast to Rome package bought off Groupon with my girlfriend. Check-In/Front Desk: A Check-in was super easy and quick. We needed to drop off our bags and run to our pre-booked night Coliseum tour and they were super accommodating by holding our bags for us (before we even officially checked in) and calling a taxi (which showed up in 5 minutes, and got us to the Coliseum just in time). We eventually checked in around 2am with no issues. Room: B+ Nice sized room, with a firm bed. And side couch. Solid AC. Good Wi-Fi. Small TV, safe, mini fridge. No great views to be had from this hotel (busy-ish road on one side, parking lot and apartment buildings on the other). No balconies/terraces. No pool. The bathroom was fine. The room has the 3 pronged (L-Type) outlets (which also accept the 2 pronged ones). Definitely a few scuff marks on the walls. Location: B- Probably the biggest negative to this hotel is its distance from Rome (took us 20-30 minutes each time, which cost around 30 Euros by taxi), but that is likely why we got such a good deal. The hotel is probably 15 minutes from Trastevere, which is an awesome place to walk around at night and eat gelato, enjoy a beer outside. Nothing much to do in the neighborhood around the hotel. Restaurant/Bars: B- I can’t complain about the free breakfast buffet offered each morning. It was always decent enough to get us going for the day (muffins, coffee/OJ, eggs, meat, fruit). But there is only 1 bar, and it’s right off the lobby, so it can get extremely crowded, and the food/service suffers because of it. We had one of the worst pizzas ever here during a busy rush (soccer game). We did not go to the restaurant as there was a private event the one night we might have. Pool: N/A Elevator: B+ I read a lot of complaints about the tiny, inefficient elevators (aka “lifts”), but we never had any trouble with them, and we were on the 6th floor. I do see how they would be trouble if you tried to use them the same time a large tour came through. Better than stairs. Check-Out: A Very quick and simple. Settle your “extras” bill before leaving (especially if foreign traveler), as international credit card transactions often fail or require a PIN code. Recommended excursions: 1) Collisuem/Forum 2) Vatican City Museums (Cistine Chapel, Map Room) 3) Trastevere (Bir & Fud for great beer and amazing pizza, Gelateria Regusto for amazing gelato) 4) Spanish step, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon Random recommendations for the traveler: 1) Plan to take a taxi to Rome every day, or get a bus (right outside the hotel) to town. 2) All staff seems to speak excellent English, but I found making an attempt at some Italian seemed polite. 3) Settle your room bill before you leave, there can be issues with them putting it on your foreign card. Recommendations for hotel management: 1) Maybe offer shuttles to Rome. 2) 24-hour room service. Even if just sandwich, chips and soft drinks, wine. 3) A pool would nice. Possibly an unreasonable request. 4) Update the signage and all internet reviews to mention that this is no longer a Holiday Inn 5) Hire more bartenders/servers for busy times at the bar. Conclusion: 4 stars because it wasn’t pricey, and I felt I got what I paid for, but nothing extra. Cheers!
I, of course, researched this hotel before we arrived and the pictures online make it look great but that's not the case. The room, especially the carpet, just seemed dirty. The staff is not the friendliest and the hotel is not close to the city at all, nor is it in the best part of town. There is no area, other than right outside of the front doors, to sit outside and enjoy a drink or just hang out. Disappointed because it's just not what we expected at all.
Unforgettable experience. Too far from the city centre. Advertised as Holiday Inn but different name when we got there. Carpets looks dirty, walls have scratches everywhere, bath tubs looks horrible, dust on lamp shades and furniture. A big mistake to check in there. Don't be fool by the pictures on the web site.
Horrible experience. The first night we were there, we ate in the restaurant on the 1st floor. My fiance ordered the squid and I ordered the chicken. Both dishes were ok, but not spectacular. Waiter seemed to be overworked as service was very slow (not his fault). That evening, my fiance came down with a violent case of food poisoning. We are sure it was the squid, as it was the only dish that day that I had not also eaten. In terms of the room itself - very small, and our A/C was broken. When we finally made it out of our room the next day, we asked them to repair it while we were gone. We came back to find it was not fixed. We asked again for them to fix it and ultimately had to change rooms. Oh, and the elevator was broken. Rooms seemed to be in need of touching up & some repair. Will not be staying here again. It was conveniently located however, as there is a bus stop across the street that brings you into central Rome.
I stayed one night during my Europe Trip, decent stay., comfortable beds, friendly staff., good wifi. Bus stop just opposite the hotel., easy commute to city center and sightseeing but little far. They do have shuttle service at cost of 2€. All good and I do recommend this Hotel for day or 2 stay.
Great breakfast was included. Location kind of far from city center but bus comes every 20 min or so. The area seems a bit sketchy at night but we never encountered a problem. Helpful staff at front desk.
Trip fantastic hotel not all that was expected but better than previous reviews had expressed. The breakfast was very good with a wide choice. The staff did their very best in what was obviously a change over period regarding hotel ownership it was not a Holiday Inn as we had booked.
Just back from a trip with my Wife for her birthday. Hotel lobby is spacious and modern. On check in we were upgraded to a superior room which was again was nice modern and spacious. Hotel staff were friendly and polite. We were late arriving - 10.00pm but there bar food available - pizza, burgers, sandwiches. Bar closed at 11pm. Only downside is location as its about 20-30 mins by bus into Rome depending on traffic. The hotel provides an 8 seater shuttle service 1st come 1st served to near the Vatican for €2 each way but there is a public bus across the road running every 20 mins. €1.50 each way. Beats a €30 taxi...
We were part of a coach tour, clearly a deal had been made with the hotel to keep prices to a minimum, and bottom line - you get what you pay for! There is only two smal lifts and the queues for these two lifts early evening at check in time were horrendous with people shoving and pushing with their luggage and often a half hour wait for the lift. We had a breakfast slot of 06.30 sharp and a dinner slot of 18.30 sharp. There was no time for a shower and change when we arrived back after a day sightseeing in the city which was horrible. Our room was small with no draw space or place to store our cases. The room was clean and the shower was good with constant hot water - always a plus! Now to the food - oh dear. Poor selection for breakfast with no fresh fruit, just tinned peach halves. Dinner on a couple of evenings was almost inedible and one evening it was totally inedible, really really unpleasant. There was no choice you ate what you were served or went without. Sadly the whole experience at this hotel was pretty poor. The dining area was so bare and noisy it was impossible to hear yourself speak. Maybe as we were on a coach tour this was not representative of the hotel as a whole, hard to say. Certainly not a hotel I would want to return to. Also it was a long way outside the city necessitating a half an hour drive in heavy traffic every morning and evening.
Hotel is cozy. Room is basic with no kettle or toiletries.Need to bring it along if you require a kettle for your tea or coffee. Need to supply your own beverage too in the room.Room was stuffy and needed to open the window for ventilation although it was cold outside. Need to get a 2 pin power adapter. Breakfast was basic with eggs and hotdogs and loads of bread.
