Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Castellino Palio Bianco Rome

Poor, never use this hotel

from

The best thing about this hotel is location - it is extremely central, however that is the only positive thing I have to say about it. I was coming back from a wedding and I tried for several hours to get into the hotel - the receptionist had fallen asleep! Furthermore, there was a hole in the roof and my TV did not work. Will never use this hotel again. AVOID.

The worst bathroom ever!

from

Horrible bathrooms, the water was never warm. Staff doesn,t care about complaints.

Surreal, and not in a good way...

from

I was warned before booking for Rome that a location within the city centre automatically adds a star to Rome hotels. I didn't believe it then. I do now.

This is a two star hotel - don't let anyone tell you any different. The decor of "Modern Art" is dreadful - like the owner's nephew has decided that he is a pop artist and was given free reign to decorate - particularily bad was the "mannequin perched on a toilet" sculpture on the second floor. The breakfast was extremely inedible, the bathrooms suspect and the small rooms very dusty. (Beware if you have allergies/asthma!) If you are looking for a fairly strange, cheap, rough around the edges, two star hotel with a fantastic location this is the place.

I won't see you there.

Never Again

from

Tiny rooms, rabbit warren, dark! Trades on its excellent position alone I am sure. My shower leaked all over the bathroom floor and the fridge didn't work. The reception staff just shrugged it off. I don't think the three stars are earned at all. At least I had french doors, alas they opened onto a corridor!

Great Location

from

This hotel has a great location. A bit on the small side, however, but very comfortable bed and room! Bathroom was definitely on the small side, but everything worked, and really nice staff. I'd definitely go back again,

Great Central Hotel

from

I loved this hotel, it was right beside the main tourist sites, so central. The modern art lining the walls gives it a very modern edge.

This is a good quality, clean budget hotel.

Claustrophobes, Beware!

from

This hotel was booked and paid for, sight unseen, on the internet, a salutary example of the inherent dangers of this course. Only the price was attractive (for Rome) - 67 euros per night The route to the bedroom was a rabbit warren, the room was barely large enough to contain the double bed, the bathroom was correspondingly miniscule, but the worst feature was the minute window which could not be opened, and in any case was barred from the outside. In the event of fire, escape would have been impossible. On request we were shown another room which appeared, if possible, to be even worse than the first. Staff were sullen, but we imagine that the hotel would be as unpleasant to work in as to stay in. It has taught us not to be seduced by attraction of budget charges without being able to make an on-the-spot assessment

Excellent Location and lovely hotel

from

Hotel Castellino is a very cosy small hotel, just off Piazza Venezia. The rooms were small, but very well decorated. The atmosphere was lovely, with modern art everywhere.

Perfectly located for discovering Rome

from

If you are looking for the perfect location for a city break in Rome...here it is! The room are basic but comfortable even if the bathroom is very small but functional for the 20 minutes you spend in it a day, after all you are here to discover the city (and yes there is warm water)..The staff is very friendly and helpful. At your doorstep you have all the ancient Rome site from the Coliseum to the Forum and all the beautiful piazza where you can seat on the terrace enjoying your meal.This hotel is a standard 3*, nothing luxurious but well maintained and clean. The definite advantage is its central location and I will not hesitate to go back there if I am going to Rome again.

Horrible experience

from

Ive gone through a horrible experience in this hotel. Despite the good location and the appropriate rooms, the bathrooms are old and claustrofobic. Much less than we can expect of a three star hotel...

I had a voucher for five nights. During four nighs I had no warm water!!! The staff was unpolite and inefficient. I've tried to complain wuth the manager, but he was never there. I've even made a call to the travel operator in Brazil, and the problem was not solved so far. In my return, the operator returned 50% of my money, and promised to the hotel.

We zijn er! Na 1000 km in 12 uur gereden te hebben (we waren niet alleen op de weg) zijn we toe aan eten en koffie. Het weer is prachtig, en vanaf ons balkon in hotel Castellino zien we in de verte de bergen liggen met sneeuw op de toppen. De bergen die onze 30 mannen vanaf morgen gaan beklimmen... Weltrusten!

... use the metro upon getting there. Michaela left us great directions, but we couldn't fun the bus that she told us to take to the metro stop. After asking several people, none of which spoke God English nor knew exactly where the bus stop was, we hopped on a bus on the street that said it was headed to Conca D'Oro, the metro stop close by. Once we got there, we were all set. Knowing how to read a metro map comes really handy in Europe, because almost everyone here uses ...

Rome: the last days

... preparation, I found myself in Sacre Speco, the cave or grotto where Benedict lived for some years. The Abbey has been built around it over the centuries. It is small. A white marble statue of Mary has been placed in it. This statue has one silver foot. This is because pilgrims touch the foot of the statue out of deference and this means the marble wears away. The same problem happened to the statue of St Peter in the Vatican. Now Peter has no foot! Secondly, a marble ...

This is still open and when it rains water falls onto the floor and is designed to drain away. Arrived next at the Piazza Navona. This is a long skinny rectangle with three fountains and follows the shape of a 1st Century AD stadium used for athletics and chariot racing. The ...
