    Great Hotel - Wonderful Experience Overall

    by (3 reviews) Pueblo West , United States Flag of United States

    This is a five star hotel and were it not for our Hilton Honor Points, we would not have been able to afford it. The room was excellently appointed and had a view of the Garden, but we had access to the upper floor overlooking the city of Roma.

    Breakfast was included in our package and the buffet style breakfast had every imaginable food available. The service at the tables was efficient and friendly.

    Although the hotel is outside the city center, this really didn't present any major difficulties as the hotel provides a shuttle Barberini Plaza which is fairly centrally located to other major transportation hubs.

    All in all, this was a delightful hotel, well appointed. It definitely lived up to our expectations for a 'Waldorf' facility.

    Quiet location on top of a mountain on the outskirts of Rome. Hourly complimentary shuttle provided by the hotel. Good service, and far from the maddening crowd...

    Great Stopover in Rome for a Family

    Reviewed Jun 21, 2012
    by (1 review) , United States Flag of United States

    This is a wonderful hotel if you are traveling with kids and looking for some luxury and great service.

    Rooms - The rooms are large, so it was easy to fit a rollaway bed and there was plenty of space for our belongings. We ordered up an extra fridge so we could chill water and beverages without touching the minibar. The balconies are huge and very private. We were on the third floor, so we didn't have the panoramic Rome view. Even so, the balcony was a very nice place to hang out.

    Location and facilities - We used the shuttle to and from Piazza Barberini on both of our sightseeing days in Rome. It was always on time, easy to find and very comfortable. Rome was extremely hot during our stay (mid June) so we enjoyed being able to head back to the hotel for a swim after a day of touring Rome.

    Food - The breakfast buffet was fantastic - lots of options. The Colosseo Club for HHonors members also worked really well for us. We enjoyed snacks and drinks each night. Since both the Club and breakfast buffet are free to Gold HHonors members, it was great value.

    Food at the hotel is very expensive - we didn't eat at any of the restaurants. We weren't looking for a bigger meal an any of the nights were we at the hotel and we didn't find the idea of a 30 euro hamburger appealing. A local piazza is a 10 minute walk away. We ate at the sicilian restaurant one night (ask the concierge for directions) and had some very good pasta dishes. It's also easy to grab dinner or some takeaway food in Rome before you catch the shuttle back.

    We stayed on points, so the value for us was exceptional. But even if I had paid for the room, I think it would have been good value for us compared to some of the other hotels I looked at in Rome

    Historical Traveler Reviews Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts

    Treated like royalty

    from

    My son and I stayed here over Christmas 2003 using points and it was fabulous. The hotel treated us like honored guests every second. We were whisked into a special check-in room and put on the club level.

    The room was fabulous. Fantastic view of Rome and the Vatican. Huge room with wonderful comfy chairs. Every day the staff brought us a wonderful little gift including a bottle of champagne. The staff was professional and hard-working (and as my son noticed, the girls were stunningly beautiful!). My only complaint was the food in the restaurants. It was ridiculously over-priced and not very good quality.

    Everything else was wonderful though. Even though this hotel is off the beaten path, the location on the hill and the size of the rooms and the view make it worthwhile. I'm now a loyal Hilton customer!

    The Cavalieri Hilton is Outstanding

    from

    The hotel and the staff at the Cavalieri Hilton were Wonderful. I and my family stayed at the Cavalieri for three nights at the beginning of the trip and then returned for three more nights at the end of our trip. We arrived at the Cavalieri on March 5th around 9:00 a.m. Check in is not to later in the afternoon, but the staff had our room ready and we were escorted for a tour of the hotels Executive floor and of our suite. Rachael, the lady who gave us a tour was extremely helpful and available for any questions or needs we may have had throughout our stay. For those guests who have access to the executive floor it and its staff are great! Every morning we took breakfast here. There is a European breakfast available until 11 A.M. After touring Rome's sites we enjoyed afternoon snacks and drinks here and then before dinner hors devours were served. It is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the view of Rome! We stayed in a corner suite for the first 3 nights and it was outstanding! Great views of Rome, two balconies and plenty of room. The rooms were decorated very nicely, had a very large bathroom with large tub and separate shower. The living room was very large with a sitting area and balcony. We then left Rome for Venice and Florence and Returned for the remaining three nights. This time we had a deluxe plus room with access again to the executive floor. Though this room was not as large as the suite it was much larger than any standard hotel room.

    The room was set up like a mini suite with a large bathroom, sleeping area and a sitting area before the balcony. This room was decorated in the same formal style of the suite and was also very comfortable. The hotel as great grounds that should be explored. Also the hotel provides a shuttle to a and from the city center. For those familiar with Rome it drops passengers off at the Bristol in Bernini Square. It was a very efficient system. Overall the hotel and staff our outstanding and we really enjoyed our stay.

    Breathtaking

    from

    Lavish decor, breath taking million dollar view, heavenly comfort, treatment fit for royalty, exquisite food, friendly, helpful, and well trained staff. We arrived at 9AM exhausted after a long flight and 7 hour time difference. Check in wasn't until 2 PM and they were fully booked. However the staff treated us like royalty and told us they could get us into our room within 45 minutes. We were immediately escourted to the Executive Lounge while we waited which later served as home base for our luxurious week there. A lush Euro style breakfast was always available until 11 AM. Food, bottled water, juice, coffee and more was constantly available. We are Hilton members and stayed all week on the executive level with a view of Rome and St. Peter's for free. Our bed complete with pressed pure linen sheets, feather filled duvet and shams adorned the upscale mattress nearly identical to ours at home. They actually provide a pillow and soap menu. The turn down service was laced with sounds of Italian opera and indirect lighting further setting the mood with Rome at night hovering over our veranda.

    We enjoyed the quiet provided by being a little outside of the city.

    The hotel has a shuttle that will take you near the Spanish Steps every hour. We both loved it so much we'd go back tomorrow.

    Rome Cavalieri is Fabulous!!!!

    from

    In October, 2003 my husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the Rome Cavalieri-Hilton and it was fantastic. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The service was outstanding, including a personal welcome by Eve Santiglia, Director of Sales and Marketing. We had a corner suite with fabulous views of Rome - we hated to leave.

    Everything about this hotel was wonderful!!

    Loved the Cavalieri Hilton!

    from

    I stayed in the Cavalieri Hilton in Rome October 2001, when I saw that Frommers listed it as having the Best View. Attempts to get accommodations in one of Frommers Most Moderately Priced, Best Location, etc., proved to be impossible because there no vacancies.

    But, after staying at the Cavalieri Hilton, I realised that this was the best turn of events. Located about 15 minutes from the centre of things, the hotel provides a shuttle bus throughout the day. While this might be annoying to some, we liked that it drove through some residential areas, up a hill to areas we might never have explored on our own. When we checked in, we were immediately upgraded to a large suite, without asking. (Perhaps the fact that we had told them in our e-mails that were were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary hight have had something to do with it.) Waiting for us in our room was a lovely bowl of fruit and some wine, with a lovely note. We got an amazing rate of 271 Euros including the most spectacular buffet breakfast I've ever eaten -- a steal in comparison to similar 5-star accommodations in Rome. We had heard that its restaurant, La Pergola, had a one-star Michelin rating, and we tried to book 3 days in advance.

    Nothing was available! We begged, reminded them of our anniversary, and they agreed to give us a table at 7:30 PM, VERY early by Roman standards. We opened the restaurant. It was very pricey, but remains among the best meals I have ever eaten. We ordered the Chef's special, which allowed us to sample 7 different items, crowned by 7 different desserts, pralines, and a cake that they sent 'gratis' in honour of our wedding anniversary. Would be go back? In a second! We just booked a room this October. Unfortunately, they could not match the rate. We're paying almost 100 Euros more, but that's comparable to other Roman 5-star hotels. We can't wait to go back!

    Fantastic Hotel

    from

    This has to be the best Hilton I have ever stayed in. It is certainly 5* delux. the rooms are large and comfortable, great choice of pillows!! and have spectacular views of the city. The spa facilities are superb, and worth paying the 30 euros to use. I organise conferences and have stayed in hotels all over the world, and this is certainly a great hotel. Pay the extra to use the club floor, it has a large lounge with superb views, and nice to relax in after a days business or pleasure. Looking forwward to going back.

    Executive level comfort

    my wife and i stayed 7 glorious days at this property. it is a superior hotel inevery aspect. the excutive lounge over looking rome is very special. and the staff is very highly trained the rooms are perfect as is the pool area. we dined outside on the roof top restaurant--a four hour pleasure trip. next in rome we will agains select this property

    Beautiful Resort in Rome: 5 Star

    from

    We stayed her May/June 2003. We travel extensively, and are use to the Ritz Carlton as a standard. I am an Hilton HHonors Diamond member, and have stayed at many Hiltons. This is clearly the best Hilton I have ever stayed at. The Property is more of a Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons type of standard. Hotel is a true resort, right in Rome. Rooms are beautiful. Restaurants are excellent. Book well in advance if you want to get into La Pergola (rooftop restaurant). Gym is very good. I suggest Executive Floors if you can get them; the club is good. Free for the 20 minute ride to/from downtown is a nice touch.After going to the Danieli in Venice & Villa Medici in Florence, The Rome Cavilieri Hilton was our favorite. We will return.

    Enjoyed the Cavalieri

    from

    Great hotel

    Worth paying the extra to get a room with a view of the city- get a room on a high floor for the best view- note that floor 3 is the first floor

    Rooms are spacious

    Location outside the city may not suit everyone, but advantage is that it is very quite at night

    Complimentary shuttle bus to and from the town centre is helpful.

    Breakfast was good, but expensive EUR40 if not included in your room rate

    The hotel is expensive, a 50cl bottle of mineral water in the minibar in the room EUR9...

    It's the best

    from

    As the Rome Cavalieri Hilton is awarded with the 5 star diamond award we had great expectations on this Hotel. And it is true they deserve this price. It is a really luxury hotel. With a great vieuw towards the city centre. A refined art collection and a beautiful surrounding. This hotel is worth staying in. The staff is really friendly and de decorations of the hotel are really refined.

    Stay here and you stay in a dream

    Another hot sunny day in Rome, perfect for sightseeing this beautiful city. Impressive European style is my first thought as we bus it to town from our hotel on the hill. We had to find the start point of our organised tour so made our way to the "wedding cake" a beautiful grand monument in white marble that gets little credit in the guide books …
