Hotel Sistina

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to all major attractions. Room is a bit ourdated and breakfast was terrible! Staff is great and very accomodating. Would recommend for location but not for quality.

Great location, room too small but very clean bathroom was very clean the bed was to small gave me a tween size bed I almost fell down two times, very helpful and friendly staff.

Perfect location for walking and exploring room. Very clean, friendly staff, efficient taxi service, low cost. Highly recommended for stays in Rome.

This was a great experience. The location was perfect, we walked to all the important sights and enjoyed the strolls along the picturesque streets of Rome. The staff were truly polite and made us feel welcome. This is truly the place to stay, especially a great value. Would not hesitate to stay again.

The hotel is outdated but clean. The staff members were friendly and great help. The best part of the hotel was its location. The spanish steps are only a couple of minutes away and a metro station is located just around the corner. Simply put: I would recommend the hotel for booking.

Great location near metro, bus stops, reataurants, and shops. Felt very safe in this neighborhood. Large room, traditional decor in this well kept and charming old building. Elevator small but helpful for traveler with limited mobility. Bed mattress hard. WiFi not reliable in room, better in common areas. Lots of tall windows for fresh air and natural light; when closed they blocked street noise and early morning sun well. Lovely roof top terrace! Breakfast was fair. "Americano café" wasn't good, cappucino was tasty but I had to ask for it, it wasn't offered. "Fresh" fruit was dry, out of season. Canned peaches - not good! Overall, we enjoyed our stay in June 2014.

the Hotel is nearby two metro stations and local buses are also nearby. Ideal for sightseeing. there are also many restaurants near the hotel, all are worth a visit.

Exellent location: very close to mostl tourist attractions, 5 min away from the subway, 2 subway stops from Termini. Our room was large, quiet, beds were comfortable. The shower head was broken and never fixed in 3 days, the electrical kettle was not working ( we were given another one upon our request), towels were mixing once, bur were provided quickly, mini bar/refrigerator was not working. Quaility of food offered at breakfast is very poor, but one can get full. Overall I recomend the place for staying for those who do not pay much attentio to detaild, as the location is really good.

This hotel was a fantastic stay for the weekend. It is in a central location, easy to walk or metro everywhere. The staff was superb and the breakfast and room cleanliness were top notch. I will come back to Rome and stay only here.

We were pleasantly surprised with the experience here at Sistina. The morning included breakfast started our day right.

Got to the door. Relatively old-fashioned & small. Walked up to clerk to check in. Very friendly & spoke very good English. (Other clerks encountered there were the same; very good.) Room was larger than typical "old European hotel room". Bed was just fine. Small TV with only Italian-speaking stations. Bathroom was decent-sized & modern. Had room for both our toiletries cases. IMPORTANT: You control your own AC. On this trip at numerous other "fancy" hotels, management turns the AC off because "it's not the hot season yet". We were uncomfortably hot in their rooms. This 1 was perfect. Located in good sightseeing, eating & shopping area of Rome. A 4 minute walk to subway station. Near a bus route.

This was our fourth or fifth stay at Hotel Sistina but our first in several years. Location is excellent: turn right to the top of the Spanish Steps; turn left and choose a backstreet short cut to Via Veneto or stroll past Piazza Barberini to VV. The location is well suited for retuning to the room to rest or use the WC. They have upgraded their (still small) elevator. Rooms are good size and bathroom is larger than most.One complaint: only English TV channel is CNN that I don't watch in the States. They would do much better with Sky News or BBC. Their inclusive breakfast is above average with an attractive and efficient woman overseeing the breakfast experience. No other meals are served but bars and restaurants are plentiful nearby. Our reservation was confirmed immediately upon arrival. Check in took about one minute after surrendering passports. The concierge: made our dinner reservation at Giarrosto Toscano; recommended and provided a Mercedes sedan and driver to FCO airport for 46 Euro total.Overall, our stay was as enjoyable and pleasant as in years past. [...] We probably won't return to Rome for awhile but Sistina will still be our first choice when we do.

Small hotel in a great location, very close to Spanish Steps and great shopping! Staff was super friendly and accomodating. It is on a busy street so it was a bit noisy with the windows open - but pretty quiet with them closed. And it was a bit too warm to close them. We visited in the Spring. We kept them open all day while we were out so it wasn't too bad at night with them closed. AC wasn't turned on yet, hopefully that would resolve the problem in the summer. Room was a bit small and the beds a bit uncomfortable, but you can't beat the location.

We went to Rome on vacation early September and stayed at the Hotel Sistina. Bad points: porter service was not offered at check-in to help with the bags, small rooms, run-down appearance, rooftop terrace w/o umbrellas. Good points: good location, airconditioned rooms, nice bathroom, good breakfast, rooftop terrace. Helpful staff- but you have to ask. We would categorize this as a no frills, lower budget hotel based on city location and rate it at a 2 star level, definitely not a 4 star. Maybe we're a little unrealistic about what to expect for the money but we did expect more. Recommended with the caveat that you not expect too much.
