Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Castellino Palio Bianco Rome
Poor, never use this hotel
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!
Horrible bathrooms, the water was never warm. Staff doesn,t care about complaints.
Surreal, and not in a good way...
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.
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!
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
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.
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
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
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.
I´ve 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.

... the Trevi Fountain among other things. Fred and Craig were about the only 2 who climbed the Spanish steps as the heat of the day had exhausted all of us. They were given 10 minutes to climb up, down and look around. They said it was worth it as the view was great. The Trevi Fountain is being renovated at the time so it was not on and there was scaffolding covering it although not as much as there was a few weeks ago. ...
... wait worthwhile but I had conceded to the fact that I would once again be wandering a new city alone so wasn’t phased after losing them within the first 3 minutes. Even with half price student entry I wanted to make the visit equal to the wait. I think I was only there an hour longer than the others in the end but Justin kept me good company and we saw some interesting artefacts and some thought-provoking info was imparted on us. I quite enjoyed the contemporary ...
... art galore. I felt quite privileged to have seen a couple of Leonardo da Vinci's works and of course, the almighty Sistine Chapel. Michael Angelo's incredible ceiling work - wow. I have to say - and again I reiterate I am NOT religious in the slightest - I felt so peaceful in the Sistine Chapel, so much so that I didn't want to leave when the tour guide hurried us through. I even managed to get a sneaky pic, REBEL. Some guys on the same tour as me definitely ...
... a famous Italian sculptor.
As we exit Piazza Navona, we stop at every corner to check the street names as we navigate the maze that takes us towards the Pantheon. Rounding a corner into Piazza de Rotundo, a large pillared building appears...we have found the Pantheon, the Roman temple of all Gods! The Pantheon is one of the better maintained historical sites in Rome. It was originally built of wood around 25BC. The current structure was believed to have been built ...
We arose this morning, on what was to be the last day of sightseeing during our "Roman Holiday", to overcast skies and a chance of rain showers. But the girls were not to be denied! They made a brief sortie for a few groceries (to tide us over until we leave on Wednesday), returned to the apartment, and then decided we should go out for lunch. Much to the tour director's surprise, they also pronounced themselves game for an afternoon of exploration in ...
