    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caprice Rome

    Great Location

    from

    An good little Hotel with nice helpful staaff. Once you get pass the Cicacica Boom Club (which we never noticed) the location was excellent - we were within walking distance to everything we whated to see - The spanish steps - Roman Forum - Colssium - Circus Maxium - De Triva - Excellent restaurants - close to the subway. We would definitly return.

    ONLY PROBLEM - EVERYONE IN ROME SMOKES -AND MAKES BREATHING AND LIFE MISERABLE FOR THOSE OF US WHO WISH TO ENJOY LIFE.

    Comfortable Stay

    from

    My husband and I recently stayed at the Caprice (22/23 December 2003).

    We considered we got what we paid for. It was reasonably central and we found a couple of local pizzerias which were very good to eat at.

    Reception staff not particularly helpful, but then we have no Italian speaking abilities other than gracia and ciao! Our room was adequate, clean, but very small bathroom. Bonus of a free breakfast was unexpected. Loved Rome, would probably stay at Caprice again because of its location.

    We should have known ...

    from

    Because we stayed at the Caprice for 11 nights and asked to see some available rooms on check-in, we were given a room with a balcony and a good-sized bath. The balcony, however, housed the air-conditioning unit for the floor, and make a horrendous noise when it rained. Breakfasts are great -- HOWEVER ... one morning someone came up to us in the breakfast room and asked us if she could buy a cup of coffee or if it was only for guests. While we were trying to be helpful to her, her accomplice was stealing my shoulderbag -- from the breakfast room! We thought the hotel staff could have been more helpful/sympathetic/apologetic, and when we asked if they were going to change the lock to the room (the key was in my bag), they simply shrugged their shoulders, and said the thieves would never get beyond the front desk. It was a painful and costly lesson; we still love Rome, can hardly wait to go back, but not to the Caprice.

    Old hotel, next to topless club

    from

    Service-wise, the front desk person was very helpful in phoning one of the museum to change our reservation, without him, we would have miss it. They were friendly overall. But the hotel itself is old, the rooms are not consistently good. Our rooms look like old dormitory-style accomodation, the drawers, closets look so old, I was afraid to put things in there. Likewise, bathroom needs some work too (not getting my money's worth of $120/night). However, we saw housekeeper cleaning the room next to ours, that room look much nicer. A note of caution, the hotel is next to a topless club. But it was relatively safe to get back to hotel after mid-night, my friends & I went back in early AM a few nights after day trip to nearby cities. If this hotel commits to renovations, I would recommend this place.

    I Agree - Avoid!

    from

    I stayed there a couple of years back and the elevator can only acommodate 2 people at a time (?) and was broken a lot (luckily we were only 2 flights up). The 1st room we got was (literally) 7x10 feet with TWO twin beds & an armoire. I made a stink about it and they gave us a MUCH bigger room on the same floor. With the exception of Bruno (who was just a beautiful human being), everyone else on the desk staff was horrible. My friend and I were expecting the hotel to be near the Spanish Steps, but the hill it's on is treacherous. If you're thinking of bringing your family, forget it. The Caprice is RIGHT NEXT to a strip joint. You're better off staying at La Docle Vita B&B (that's where I stayed the last timne I went). It costs less and is 1/2 a block from the train, about 1-1/2 blocks from Trevi fountain and about 3-4 blocks from the Spanish Steps.

    Small rooms and smelly elevator

    from

    This old hotel needs to be avoided at all cost. It is located near Via Venetto which is long over its glory days of the 60s. It will take you an hour to get to the main sites in Rome. The hotel staff has very little information to share with the guests and generally unfriendly. The elevator has a terrible odor. We had to hold our noses each time we got into the elevator!!!! The rooms are small and the carpets dirty. Someos the plaster work on the walls are falling off. The bathrooms are fairly new but very small. A standing room shower with a sink is all you are going to get. No place but the ground to put your personal stuff.

    When in Rome

    ... br> Afterwards we also visited the Roman forum and Palatine Hill, the Circo Maximo (where they were already setting up for NYE) and Cestius Pyramid (which is being renovated).

    One thing we noticed in Rome is the rudeness of people (not necessarily locals). An ambulance was trying to get through a pedestrian light, but because the man was green, the crowd kept crossing, even in front of the ...

    There's no place like Rome

    ... but it was very different to be inside a car. I am still asking myself the question "what do Italians think indicators are for?" because they most definitely do not use them… ever!! And apparently it is OK to overtake people in the middle of the city while a car is coming in the opposite direction! What the hell? So needless to say, it was not a relaxing ride!! But alas, we made it and we could again enjoy the company of our teenage German school group.

It was a beautiful day and we thought we best not waste it. We left to go buy some much needed toilet paper before we were in serious trouble. What should have been an hour errand turned into a walking tour of Rome. Dina somehow managed to get us to visit all of ...

They certainly knew how to build to last! After, I grabbed a pizza at the Termini bus...it was delicious (6.5€). From the Termini, I took a hop on hop off bus tour...18€. It was good ...

The time passes quickly when we start talking with a couple behind us from Scotland. They explain the best time to visit the UK is in the month of June and first couple weeks of July. Two main reasons are that English schools are still in session. They only close in the month of August. The ...
