Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Tiberio Rome
A wonderful place to stay
We stayed at the Grand Tiberio during August 2004. The breakfast buffet was very nice. It included scrambled eggs, various meats and cheeses as well as rolls and coffee cakes. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. It is located about 2 miles from the Vatacan and St Peter's. The Metro is located right behind the hotel so it was pretty easy to get around town on the subway.
Not too bad..
I stayed at the Tibiero for a week while on business in Rome and it was adequate for my purposes. It is close to a bus line that runs down the hill to St. Marks Plaza and a metro stop. The walk is a little far, but fine if you plan on only making the roundtrip once a day. However, if you're looking to head back to the hotel before dinner, then go downtown again or something, the walk will get tiresome. Also, expect to pay 5-10 Euros in addition to your fare for a taxi to come pick you up!
Security in the hotel was a slight concern. I was able to open my door, as well as a colleague's with my key card; a driver's license or credit card seemed to do the trick, too.
Staff was mostly friendly. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was not good, but then again, who goes to Rome to eat in a hotel restaurant? Breakfast was perfectly acceptable. Room was clean, although a slight ant problem in the bathroom. And, I think they put plastic under the sheets, so a little warm at night.
All things considered, I would be disappointed if I expected this to be a luxury hotel, and fine if I expected a mid-range accommodation; probably a little pricey to be a budget hotel.
Stayed at the Grand Hotel Tiberio the 1st May 2004 for few days. As a travel professional I have stayed in many hotels all over the world and the only thing that I want to say about this Hotel is "...just perfect!"The room was beautiful and comfortable. The bed were fine, quite area and very cool atmosphere. Staff is very accommodating, friendly and efficient. Wireless connection, not so easy to find in Italy.Highly reccomended.
"A place too far"
My wife and I recently stayed at the Grand Hotel Tiberio for four nights as part of a package booked with Trafalga Tours. We were concerned given the mixed trip advisor reviews, but found the hotel more than satisfactory for the amount we paid. The room and bath were small and modestly furnished, but the hotel lobby was very pleasant and the neighborhood was friendly and interesting. The cold breakfest buffet was also more than satisfactory. The only negative was the Hotel's distance from the main tourist attractions. Altough the Hotel is located right next to a train line that connects with the subway system, the trip into downtown Rome took more than an hour and with the exception of the Colessem, the subway sations are a good hike from most of the must see attractions. If I ever visit Rome again I think I will save some wear and tear on my feet and spend the extra money to stay at a hotel in the heart of the city.
We had a great stay in this property. We had a lovely room on the 5th Floor with a nice view on the city.
Prior our arrival I was a little bit worried..but as soon as we walked in this Hotel we felt like at home....

Bed mites, Thumbs down to Triberio
This hotel was awful We were in a tour group and had a room facing the air-condtioning unit in the back facing a wall. Our bidette was not operating. Shower only sprinkled water. Some of our fellow vacationers experienced some sort of bed mites. This hotel is far from everything.
Breakfast buffet was really pitiful. Cold eggs if you can call them that. No clock-radio. Wake-up calls never came. Luckily we were in a group and started calling fellow travelers to see what was up. Don't go to this hotel if you can help it.
We were concerned after having read the two reviews above; the greeting and care we received more than compensated for our resultant worries.The room was great, and the welcome warm and helpful. The hotel is one of the nicest I have stayed in in Europe ( and that's saying something!).Have no fear; conatct the manager before you arrive with your concerns, and all will be well; it was for us!Fran and Mary
We had a very similar experience to the reviewer above. After arriving at 11pm We were told the hotel had been flooded. This was clearly a lie as the hotel lobby was full of guests as normal. They were very unhelpful and tried to move us to another hotel of significantly lesser quality. After arguing fo over an hour we made our own arrangements.
Avoid this hotel if you want to maintain your blood pressure at a sensible level
Grand Tiberio - lost our reservation
We arrived in Rome to find the hotel had LOST our reservation and confiamtion number. No attempt was made to find a room in this hotel.
They were basically unapologetic and shuffled us off to a lesser hotel ($189 vs $90 night). We had valid confirmation numbers and I had also pre-contacted the hotel days before to verify. Their "who cares" attitude irked us after a 18 hour flight.. The hotel had a nice lobby, but was in a "questionable" area of town.

At the Vatican City I walked through the Vatican Museums and saw St Peter's Basilica, which allows me to understand the role that religion plays in modern Italian culture.
... the Colosseum. We walked home via Piazza Navona and had dinner at one of the restaurants in the square. This was the first time we were asked how many for dinner - the answer is always three, us and the guy trying to get us to eat at the restaurant. Jillian had veal scallopini and a Prosecco. I had spinach and ricotta ravioli and a caprioska. We both had the very rich chocolate truffle gelato for ...
Woke up early with a headache. Saw about 50 hot air balloons taking off through our hotel window. Took some painkillers and went back to bed. Woke up later, Alice was feeling better. We went down to breakfast then packed our bags. We spent the later morning trawling through the souvenir shops, buying a few little pressies for people back home. Met up with the group at Fat Boys for ...

Rome was crowded. There were lots of tour groups and middle-aged Americans. But there's a reason everyone's here. So much to see!

Had 2 very packed days in Rome, walking for 6 hours or more straight.
First day was spent visiting the Palintine Hill and the Coloseum! Well worth my 12euro for the combined ticket. Saw many other buildings along the way that made for great photos too.
The dorm room was mixed and had a great group of boys and girls, we stayed up late having a good laugh. Next morning I forced myself up early to do ...
