Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cortina Rome
Great stay -- perfect location!
The staff at Hotel Cortina were extremely helpful and polite. Signore Angelo Milana was especially friendly and sincere. The rooms are clean and the bathroom a pleasant surprise for European standards. The breakfast buffet was more than expected both in quality and quantity. The location was an easy walk to most of the sites in Rome and also to the metro. It is an exceptional value.
Nice little Hotel
Hotel Cortina was a perfect location for us. It was clean and the staff were very warm and helpfull. Rooms are nice with a remarkable nice bathroom.
We would recommend it and when we return we will rebook this hotel again.

Incredible City, Nice Hotel
My wife and I had our first trip to Rome January 2005. We are pleased that we stayed at Hotel Cortina. Our room was an adequate size; it was tastefully decorated and the bed was confortable. The bathroom was nice and very clean. We also appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The location of this Hotel is excellent within walking distance to Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Venice Square, Roman Forum and more. We will return to the beautifull and incredible Rome, and plan to stay again at Hotel Cortina.
Excellent place to stay
We stayed at the Cortina in December and found it to be perfectly charming. The staff were very attentive and informative. The location is excellent in that is within walking distance of a lot of sites of interest but it is also very quiet. The room was very well furnished. Breakfast was pretty standard for a Continental Hotel it was not the hearty English Breakfast that you might expect in the UK but still consistent. i would definitely recommend a stay at the Cortina.
Location, Service & Value
Third time in Rome and first at the Cortina Hotel which was recommend by friends. Very convinient location in the central Via Nazionale. We had a Room overlooking courtyard and it was very quiet. Rooms are spacious and very clean, our bathroom was brand new, bright and very clean. Nice breakfast, excellent service that make us feel like at home. I'll came back and will recommend to our friends.
We traveled in March/2004 to Rome via train from Paris. We welcomed the Cortina and it's simplicity and found the hotel to be well worth the moderate pricing. I cannot complain about finding the hotel because like a genius I misplaced the address and my taxi driver was a gem and he made a few calls to locate the hotel. Granted we paid him 50Euro to take us around the block from the train station, but it was worth it because we would have wasted time trying to find it on our own. It's not like our cellphones worked in Europe.
The elevator is a bit antiquated and small, but if you are patient and ride up in pairs then everything is perfect. The staff is gracious and the rooms were just like the picture. The bathroom was very modern and extremely clean. We had a view of the street, and our space was better than our LeMeridien Montparnasse quad room in Paris (sucky hotel, nice staff). At the Cortina we split into pairs and both rooms were spacious and very clean. I loved the hardwood flooring and the bed was quite comfortable. The TV had CNN, and we arrived a day before the Madrid bombing.
The staff was very helpful. They made sure to put our postcards in the mail, and also helped me understand the postal system when I emailed for assistance once I returned to the States.
I would recommend it and would stay again if I return to Rome.
I am returning to Europe in December and I base my experience at the Cortina on how I choose my lodgings when researching locations.
We found Hotel Cortina to be very different to the previous review. Staff were very friendly and courteous, there is a bloody big sign on the footpath out front clearly showing Hotel Cortina (1st Floor).
Rooms although not huge were all we needed with all the necessary convienences (plenty of hot water, well stocked mini bar fridge, bed (2 singles pushed together...ok.), Air Conditioning). We stayed there when we 1st arrived in Rome for 3 nights. We had a room overlooking the back laneway. Great view of the old church next door. Breakfasts are plentyful (coffee is great). There were renovations going on, but we didn't hear a thing. We spent 3 weeks touring around Italy and re-booked Cortina on our return to Rome to fly out. This time we had a room overlooking the Busy (noisy Via Nazionale). HOWEVER, with great soundproofing glass, we could could hardly hear a thing from the Street...AMAZING!
Again, staff were great (they even rang our airline for us to confirm our flights as our Italian wasn't great!). Overall, a great hotel, great location (close to train station and a walk to all monuments), friendly helpful staff. We thought it was spot on.
We didn't stay the second night...
We had selected the Hotel Cortina from the information provided on thier web site. The actual hotel seems to be something quite different. It does not say on the web site the hotel is on the second floor of a building with little or nos ignage so you can find it. The room we were provided with in no way resembles the pictures on the site, in that it was difficult to walk around the bed it was so small. There was no natural light, our window faced out onto a walkway covered in a tarp. There was no air conditioning, no well stocked fridge, no safety deposit box and in the morning there was no hot water. The last straw was being charged between 25 and 50 Euro's per night for car parking, or as the manager suggested to us in a very off handed manner, "well park it in the street.
This experience has certainly highlighted the fact that you do NOT trust pictures or descriptions on web sites. All together a very disappointing experience.

All of the food was amazing and the atmosphere of the restaurant was nice. We then headed back to the apartment to pack up some of our things for the train ride tomorrow. Rome has been amazing and I will miss the amazing buildings and life of the city. Next ...
... We stepped out of the Chapel, through an entranceway, and out onto a balcony below the Pope’s window, overlooking St. Peter’s Square. Rows and rows of seating were set up for the twice weekly Papal views, and mass. It must be such a sight, and experience to stand there with thousands of others attending mass with the Pope.

There were so many statues and sculptures of absolutely everything, and we walked past a room full of animal statues which looked cool. Then it started to change a bit as the artifacts turned more Christian style, and then we were walking through rooms with roof to floor sized massive ...
