I just came back from Rome and was staying at Hotel Centrale with my mom. The hotel was very cosy and welcoming. The personnel were very friendly and helpful. When our tour agency offered Hotel Centrale to us I started checking the reviews. Most people were saying that the rooms are very small and there are problems with the AC and were complaining of the breakfast. Well the rooms are not enormous but not that small not to be able to move or whatever. The room service was very fast.
I don't know what people are expecting of hotel breakfasts, as for me and my mom the breakfast was very good: at least 2 types of cakes, tasty bread (especially the bread with green olives), a variety of croissants, filtered coffee, coffee from the coffee machine, also one could order fresh espresso or cappuccino, cheese, ham, yogurts, marmelades, etc. In a word classic hotel breakfast.
As for the AC, we didn't have any problems with it. As we had caught cold (not in the hotel :)) we asked Anna to turn of the AC and she did, so we didn't have any issue about that.
The staff were very helpful, all of them!!! I asked Anna's name at the last moment when we were leaving and unfortunately I dont know the names of the others, but they were all very helpful and talk english easily which is very important in Italy. Anna and her colleague helped us very much with directions and metro and gave us an extra map with metro stations. The man who was at the night shift helped us when we needed hot water at night to drink medicine.
The location of the hotel is fantastic: Via del Corso, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza di Spagna and all the places that the tourists need are very close and we could easily walk even to Colosseum.
I definitely offer this hotel to those who need a clean and welcoming hotel at the heart of Rome.
Wanna thank the hotel personnel for the warm and welcoming attitude :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is situated in a pedestrian area near Spanish Steps and Popolo Squares, which is extremely quiet and just few meters far from the big Villa Borghese parking. What makes the hotel unique among the others in the capital city is the building fascination; it is in fact a beautiful 1700 palace. Moreover, the hotel is one of the few that, being located in the centre of Rome, can offer advantage our rates. ... more less
