Reviewed 12 July 2014

We stayed at Hotel Cassia for 3 nights. The hotel was very lovely- clean, spacious, comfortable, with very friendly staff. We loved the hotel itself and it was GREAT value for the price..truly a good, fair price for the room. However, it was just too far from the historic center of Rome. We had to take a bus, then a train, then a metro just to get to the sights of Rome. It's a great hotel for families on a budget who don't mind a few extra steps of transportation every day. However, we will not stay here again simply due to the location - it's worth the extra money for us just to be a bit closer to the sights.
TIP #1: If arriving by train, plan to arrive in the daytime. It was a bit difficult to navigate the train station at night, as it is not well-lit and there are few signs.
TIP #2: There is an excellent pizza restaurant about 900 meters past the hotel. Very good prices and great food - we went there twice during our stay.

The hotel is waaay out there from the center of Rome in a working class suburb. The accomodations were adequate, breakfast was adequate to good. Staff was attentive and helpful. Internet was not working properly during our stay.
Warm water started flowing after 3 minutes. Not hot enough for my preference, bjt adequate.

Like most places this ones has it’s ups and downs. The big up that raises it to a 4 is the staff. They are knowledgeable about the area and will help you get into Rome on the train. Their information was accurate and their knowledge of English sufficient to the task. We felt at home there because of the friendly and professional staff.
I would agree with the other reviews about a few disadvantages. The location, the driveway are a downside. But the rooms are large by European standards and the housekeeping impeccable.
The good memories of our stay will bring us back.

Lovely hotel but too far out. The Hotel location is such that trips to Rome centre have to be made once per day, We would have liked to return to the hotel after say a mornings sightseeing and then go back to Rome for the evening, but this would have wasted far too much time. If we ever come again to Rome we will stay nearer the centre. Directions to the hotel from the train station are a little vague, we ended up having a very long walk just because we exited the station by the bus / car park exit. You need to take the opposite exit and then you only have a short walk to the road where you can catch the number 201 bus. This bus does not go into the train station. There is a very nice Pizza place just to the right when exiting the hotel, it serves other dishes as well as pizzas. The hotel is very clean and breakfast is good.

This hotel has its own problem while I was staying. First of all, there was no hot water, It was not hot enough to take a shower. Just warm and cold again. I was literally crying while I was taking a shower! And night time, the room was so cold. I couldn't sleep well. and the worst part of this hotel is really really too far away from center of roma. About 20 minutes walking to get the TRAIN station for 30 mimutes to transfer city METRO!! I lose so much time on tranporting! U will lose about 1 hour to get the Termini station. There is no way going back to hotel chill out ONCE U are out to see sightseeing. Good things about the hotel was nice and helpful staff, and the Breakfast.

I had a nice stay at this hotel, the staff was truly amazing!! Except for the location (which isn't exactly near the center, but thanks to the good connection with busses and the train, that was not a big issue), everything about hotel Cassia was great! :)

Quiet location, nice and clean rooms and very friendly and helpul staff, the train from the nearest train station La Storta takes you right into the city center (St. Pietro) in 25-30 minutes. Very nice for family break.
