My wife and I were originally going to stay at the Hilton Family Property Waldorf Astoria in Rome. We decided the week before to keep our reservation at the Hilton Garden Inn Rome Claridge instead and cancel the other. We saved a lot of money by doing this and received the same class of service from the front desk staff.
They make the properly what it is!!!
They set up airport transfers for us from FCO before we ever arrived in Rome. You can do this by simply sending and email to them. Our driver from the airport met us after clearing customs and was professional, on time and would not hesitate using them again. I would highly recommend using this car service when you arrive in Rome. It can be very overwhelming and the last thing you need to worry about is finding a ride or figuring out how to use the train. Spend the 55 Euros and use the transfer company to bring you directly to the hotel. Plus if your impatient like me, Its by far the fastest and simplest way to get to the hotel. Book it. You will thank me later.
Upon arriving at the hotel, which we were early for check in, they advised it would be 45 minutes until our room was ready. Which was still 4 hours early. After 45 minutes our room was ready. Imagine that. Impressive and way early!!! Thank you!
Room was very nice, bed was very comfortable, view not so great but who cares your not there for the views from the hotel room, breakfast was awesome in so many ways, bathroom was very nice and clean! Shower was hot. Front desk staff were younger and very helpful. They will answer any question you have and will help you get to where your going. Its either the #3 Tram going one way or the #19 tram the other way, or a short walk to the bus stop for number #52 which will take you to Bernini Metro Stop etc. Make sure you eat at Taverna Rossini around the corner. We ate there two nights which isn't something we typically do. Very nice food, service and they tolerate Americans.
Do yourself a favor and book this hotel. The last thing you need to worry about is lodging in Rome. I spent hours trying to figure out which and where to stay in Rome. If I would have read a review like this one it would have saved me a bunch of time and worry.
In closing, what you will find in Italy are people and businesses that are either tolerant of Americans and our very unique un-European style or not. The Hilton Garden Inn and Taverna Rossin Restaurant are two places that tolerate us Americans. Trust me on this, I spent an hour watching the front desk staff field questions from us Americans one morning. They are very patient and tolerant and speak English just fine.
Book the room and figure out what your going to do in Rome instead of wondering where you should stay. Again, you can thank me later.
If you want to find out a bout a hotel that surprisingly isn't tolerant of Americans in Italy, you can read my next review about the Hilton Molino Stucky in Venice. Yikes!
Enjoy your stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Rome Claridge. Gratzie! Arrivederci! Ciao!
