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.

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!
... Walking around in there, I couldn't help wondering how much wealth was tied up in the innumerable paintings, sculptures and stretches gold plating in there. It was opulence on a scale I'd never seen before. There was almost too much to take in.
After our visit, we strolled out onto St. Peter's Square and took in the view - it was quite pleasant standing out there in the sunshine. Eventually, however, we decided to have lunch at a nearby restaurant and leave the Vatican. ...
... the block. The portions were kind of small and so we went to a bakery next door and had a chocolate filled pastry - I wasn't complaining. We went back to the room, planned our next day in Rome, and got a good nights sleep for the next (long) day!
This morning we got up early in order to make sure we left enough time to figure out how to get to the Spanish steps, which was where our free guided tour started. We left at 8:30am and figured out ...
... realise how special it is. The age of the place along is mind boggling, and that it's stood up to everything nature and humans could throw at it is a nod to Roman engineering. Piazza Navona was next with it's amazing fountains. Then we were back on the bus and headed towards Vatican City. It really is like travelling to other world, not just another country. The whole place is geared towards tourists and pilgrims alike - they have a bus park was ...
ROME Our final morning with Topdeck! - We had breakfast and Ash gave the 4 of us a friendship bracelet each which was so sweet. We then got our bags and went to the bus stop to wait for the bus into town. The first one didn't stop so we waited at the bus stop in the pouring rain with our bags for about 45 mins which sucked but it was cool to nab an extra half an hour with everyone! - Eventually we got the bus and then the metro and as everybody ...
