“Cheap, basic, ideal for Rome”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I spent 4 days in Rome for my 21st birthday. First things first, this hotel is extremely basic. Very plain and simple rooms, no tv or fancy stuff, but as it is a religious house that's what we expected. And in all honesty if you're going to Rome to stay in a fancy hotel then you're going for the wrong reasons! We were barely at the hotel except to shower and sleep as a trip to a city with so much to offer should be!
The grounds are beautiful, there is a buzz entry system through a huge gate so the whole complex feels very safe. Reception is manned 24 hours and you leave your key when you exit the complex. Reception staff were very helpful and polite.
The location couldn't be more ideal, yes it's not in the centre but Cornelia metro station on line A is literally 4 minutes walk away which takes you directly into the centre of Rome. After a long day in a busy place it was nice to get away from it for the nights! The area felt safe even when we returned at 11.30pm one night.
In the short walk between the metro station and hotel there are numerous convenience stores, a McDonald's, pizzeria and ice cream shop. The fruit and veg sold is delicious and extremely cheap, we bought bananas etc to take out with us in the day.
Breakfast was included in our rate and is the same daily. It includes various cereals, pastries, bread rolls, cold meat selection, yoghurts and a very odd tasting scrambled egg (we still ate it) It is again basic but just what we needed, lots of carbs for energy when walking around! We found that if we ate a large breakfast we weren't hungry until lunchtime when we usually had a calzone from street sellers which cost around €4.

Overall if you're looking for a simple and cheap place to stay in Rome where you only really want a comfy bed and a place to wash then this is perfect. I have no faults with Casa La Salle as it is exactly what we expected a Religious place would be.

I stayed at the Casa La Salle in June for 3 nights. The hotel is not central so you have to get the metro to the centre and there isn't much choice of restaurants around the Hotel. Our room wasn't cleaned the whole time we was there. The hotel was like a ghost town, very quite! Rooms were dated also. Breakfast wasn't good at all, we only tired it once! I would not got back to Casa La Salle!

i have stayed at casa la salle for four nights - unfortunately. however, since i had four rooms in all this time i guess this will be a somewhat well-founded review. the first room that i got was a huge room that was very poorly furnitured given the size of the room and it looked very much like a hospital room of the 60's or so, including a lovely linoleum covered grey floor that had holes in the linoleum as big as my foot. it looked _nothing_ like the rooms on the photos. anyway, the most horrible thing was the bathroom. it turned out that i got the disabled room and the bathroom was huge too and looked like a surgery or a butchery. there were several drains in the floor and the handle of the tab was one of these huge ones that you can use with your elbows. the toilet was a terrible thing with a hole in the front between your legs so that someone else could wipe your butt. the shower was full with hair, the drain was blocked so that the water ran into the bedroom and the bathroom smelled like someone had vomitted quite extensively in there. brrrr. i went to complain and got another room, and another room, and another room. the story goes on as it started... smelly room, tiny tiny chamber, dirty room, water damage with mold on the ceiling, a double room with twin beds of different heights, dirty towels, got the same dirty towel the next day again (easy to see with stains on it...), holes in the towels, dirt between the sheets,... breakfast is available, yep, but what they offer is mostly empty / it takes ages until its being filled up unless the things that no one wants. you can get one kind of cake and croissants, which are both edible, as well as buns and bread that just tastes old and like paper. cheese is scarce good - maybe 10 slices and you can consider yourself lucky if you get one of them as everyone jumps at newly served cheese like flies. in fact its very entertaining but that is unfortunately not what you have paid for. the staff (one guy) in the breakfast room is not unfriendly but a bit weird - he told me several times not to bring food to the restaurant.... internet was down most of the time i have been in casa la salle. parking spaces are available but only about 20 and as far as i know casa la salle offers room for ~200 people. what is good about this place is that it seems to be quite safe for roman standards, it is surrounded by a big wall and gates that only open if you ring a bell and there is video surveillance. the wall and the gates make it a bit hard to get in once you arrive but its not impossible ;) generally the staff is friendly here and helped me to get a new room after one of them tried but didnt succeed in shitting me that all the rooms look exactly the same and like displayed online (believe me, they dont. i have seen four of them) or that not a single other room would be available. the price is alright for rome but you should be prepared for _very_ simple accommodation (which we were) that is far from having 3 stars as stated. one, if at all. the location is great though, about 5 mins by foot to the next metro station (cornelia) and from there its about 15 mins to vatican city. although the park around casa la salle is nicely manicured the surroundings outside of the walls is a bit rough and pretty dirty, not a nice area to walk along on your own at night. the police is present but so are criminals as i have seen a guy breaking into a car right next to the main street.
i booked this hotel because of the good recommendation rate here on trip advisor. my only explanation is that this place is often being booked by christian groups (which are everywhere in here, just like crucifixes and posters of virgin mary) and the like and people who expect an empty room for self-chastisement and are then positively surprised that there is an actual bed and a desk from the 50's. sorry for being ironic but this is how i managed to stay in this place for four nights.
and by the way: whatever you complain about, the standard answer is "this is a religious house".

Room Tip: make sure that you wont get the disabled room at least!!!

I stayed in this hotel for 3 night in 8th Aug 2013. first of all the location of hotel is near cornelia metro station. the staff was very nice and helpful. their English was good. and they answer all your request. the breakfast was good. the room was clean . but the only negative point about the room , there is no any refrigerator in the room. so you can not buy any fruit or drink. the air condition was working properly. There is bountiful church inside your hotel.

Casa La Salle is very clean, very comfortable. The WiFi works very well and is free. You never really hear anybody other guest whist inside your room perhaps the odd footstep or two. There is a good selection in the Bufffet Breakfast room, which itself was immaculately clean and tidy.. The grounds it sits in are well kept and all within a safe and secure boundary.. The complex is huge and even has it's own large church in the center, but I think as it is an ex monastery and still has connections with the church some may be put off....Please don't though as we were made to feel very welcome by all of the staff, our towels were renewed daily, our room was cleaned daily and the bed sheets also changed daily, a faultless service.. The air conditioning unit works well, especially if you leave it on all day with the window shutter down. We had no complaints about any aspects of our stay there.. You can get a taxi back from Rome for about 12 euros or the hotel is a five minute walk from the Metro Cornelia Line A.
The hotel was part of our holiday and it did not disappoint at all. many thanks to all at Casa La Salle.

Room Tip: The Hotel is set back on a main road but you do not hear it at all, so any room is fine.

Casa La Salle is great value for money and easy to get to from Rome's Metro line A. The area is on the western outskirts of Rome and last but one from the end of the Metro line A at Cornelia station. Being near the end of the line it meant that you always got a seat on the journey into Rome as it is the second stop. This is particularly helpful on the way back to Ciampino airport as it is around 40 minutes for this journey to Anagnina Metro station and a seat is preferable I can assure you. I felt that the area was very safe as i arrived late at night in the dark but was given directions by the locals who were all very friendly. The hotel is very clean with en suite bathroom with a decent shower. The breakfast is basic and the same every day but is included in the price. The staff were all very nice and helpful with any queries you had. the one thing that did confuse me about the accommodation was the entry system. I was not aware of how to gain entry to the complex initially but their is a gate that you just press the button and you gain entry or exit. Would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Rome great value for money and a quiet area with easy Metro access to the city
