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.

Another hot day of 37deg, we were collected from our hotel at 7.30am morning tour and (skip the line) Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel ( where the Pope lives).
On the way we were pointed out by our Guide the Ancient Aurelian Walls which once surrounded the City and built by Romans in 271AD to keep all the Barbarians out. There is only 7 miles of the 12 miles of wall left. They are gigantic, 11ft thick and 8meters ...
... and shapes. We went right through the opening of the lovers arches. You Re supposed to kiss your partner for good luck when you go under. Oh well missed out on that one. We came back to the original landing spot and headed for the highest part of the island via a cable car, tram like vehicle called The Funicular, just like the song. We didn't go back to Sorrento, we boarded a different boat and met the coach at Naples. Only a drive through ...
... heavy bags we would have been able to enjoy the warm Mediterranean air. We had authentic Italian pizza, which was delicious (I had eggplant Parmesan... Yum!) even though most of us didn't even know what we ordered, and delicious gelato. The architecture of Rome is beautiful. I was amazed at the older buildings, the ones that have been around for centuries, and surprised to find authentic roman architecture in the modern buildings. There was truly ...
... it to Rome by around 4 - handy, given that's when is said we'd get to the apartment. On arrival, we were again meet by a lack of signage, but that adds to the adventure. The address was right, so let's ring the contact numbers. These went to voice mail, so we could just be patient. Soon enough we meet David, who let us in.
I'll have to commend the photographer of the apartment, as the pictures may paint it better than it is in ...
... is awesome. I'm not sure about the class yet but stay tuned. Thursday I have that class and I also have my other Sociology class. Its Rome, Modern City. It's an on site class, so I will be going to lots of places around room and studying the city. Only problem is it at 9am to noon :( like holy ****! Oh and also my midterm and final are both 5 questions and each worth 40% of my class. So ten questions determine 80% of my grade -___- awesome. It sounds really interesting but ...
