Resort La Rocchetta3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Aside from my mother having her wallet stolen on the train trying to get there, the hotel is just right out too far from the historic city of Rome and not in the nicest of areas in terms of whole area (the neighborhood is cute but gated up- makes you wonder why, with all the immigration the crime rate has sky-rocketed, sadly). With a car or a lot of money to pay for private transportation, this is a very nice property. The grounds are quiet and quite lovely, the breakfast is just right and the staff is nice. The rooms are clean, and roomy but not much more to say about them. The bathroom ammenities are very "budget-friendly"= cheap. The beds are ok. The bathroom is ok. The decor has room for improvement. Would I recommend this hotel? ONLY and I mean ONLY if (as mentioned before) you have your own private mode of transportation, whether it be a hired car/taxi/uber/mytaxi/charter/shuttle, or car rental. DO NOT bother without it! Plus, for what you would spend in transportation (private) you can find a nice place near historic Rome- if not in it. And what you would spend in travel time to get to and from the resort to the city (especially considering, due to the location, you would have to cut your sightseeing time early to allot for the time wasted in transportation and security- you do not want to get back to the hotel too late) it does not sum up- after all you did spend and invest a lot to get there (Rome) and see as much as possible. Why waste your time travelling? Even the view is dismal... talk about outskirts!!! Plus the city tax that you have to pay is at a higher rate than in the city. We ended up checking out a day early and staying at a hotel in the city, across from the Colosseum, lol... (Sadly that wasn't the best choice either, but better than this one, for us, for sure).
We stayed for two nights during our road trip in Italy. The perfect place it you're travelling by car. They have a yard where you can keep your car safe behind locked gates and take the train or bus to the city (10 minute walk to the station). Facilities were good, staff excellent and friendly. Helped us a lot with good advices on where to go and what to do. Near the hotel there's nothing much to see. It's located in a quiet suburb. A few small restaurants nearby.
The hotel is very nice and clean, the breakfast is okay nothing special. Problem is the distance from the city center, but there is a train that is located 10 minutes from the hotel. The staff is very friendly and welcoming.
In a residential neighborhood but close to restaurants. We like to stay here because of the convenience to airport. Svena makes the stay very hospitable. Very helpful and friendly. Good breakfast also cocktails in the garden in the evening before going to dinner.
The hotel is in the outskirts of the suburb Rome, in a small city called La Guistiniana. No clear why the address is in Rome. It is far from Rome. There is a train that runs from La Guistiniana to San Pietro train station, which is close to Vatican. A one way ticket costs 1 Euro if you buy it from an automat that rarely works. The alternative is to buy a ticket from the newspaper stand where the price is 1.50 Euro. The location is not the best one if your trip is focused on Rome sightseeing. The hotel is nice and clean, but is surrounded by residential apartment buildings, where you can hear a noise from children playing outside. I wonder why is called "resort", since there aren't any resort amenities. A breakfast is included, but nothing special. The price per night was affordable, but there is a city tax that the receptionist collects by check out, which is 8 Euro per night. The hotel has a free parking, which is a plus. I do not suggest driving throughout Rome. We used the train that takes you for about 30 min to Vatican. From the hotel to the train station is about 10 minutes walk. To get the train from San Petro train station to La Guistiniana is also challenging for foreigners, because the information is in Italian. There are different trains that stop at La Guistiniana, but is hard to find out. Sometimes there is no staff at the train station to help you. Luckily, some passengers were willing to help. Be sure to have Euro coins and small Euro bills to buy a ticket. The ticket automat works slowly and sometimes its software gets frozen by using credit cards. My conclusion is, this is a nice hotel if your trip is not Rome.
This place is amazing. Staff incredible excellent value for money. Bit of a distance into Rome but public transit is available. Can't say enough about our staff. Awesome time enjoyed our stay so much!
I've been in Rome several times on many hotels, but this is definitely the first time I found one not overpriced. Rooms are great, the place is beautiful (on a very quiet residential area), staff was very gently and the breakfast was nice. It is a bit far from the city center (around 15km), but if you arrived by car like me you can easily park on the entrance of the Villa Borguese park, which costs 2 Euro for the whole day and it's five minutes away from Piazza del Popolo. Wifi failed a few times for around one hour, but I would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel just for a night since we were visiting relatives in the area. The hotel is very nice. Our room was on the ground floor not very big but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was quite big and very clean with a shower and a blow-dryer. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were very thin. There was just an extra pillow. Since it is a double room I would put at least two. When we asked for an extra one we were told that they were fully booked and didn't have any spare pillows. I would recommend keeping some extra ones. The breakfast was good not with a huge variety but decent. Some cakes and croissants (which I tried and were good) and some cheese and cold cuts, cereal, toast, yoghurt and a cappuccino/coffee machine. The only downside of it was the timing, it ends too soon at 9.30! I would at least put longer hours at weekends. Reaching the hotel was quite easy by car and it is close to public transport which could easly take you to Rome. Overall it was a pleasant stay in a very quiet area very close to Rome for a decent price. If you are looking for a relaxing sleep away from the bustling capital this would be a good choice.
I had a really enjoyable 5-night stay here, while visiting Rome on business and working nearby. We enjoyed a warm and friendly welcome, nice continental breakfasts and a spacious room. The location is really tucked away in a quiet suburb but it's easy walking distance to the train station as well as local shops and restaurants. (I highly recommend Antica Osteria Pietro for evening meals, 10 minutes walk away on the main road!) Thank you for looking after us!
I took my daughter to Italy as a graduation gift and this place was very nice! The staff were friendly and well spoken in many languages! The breakfast was wonderful and a short walk away is the train station!
