Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Steve39 Comfortable and reasonably priced.
We spent two days in Rome before starting a cruise, I was traveling with my wife and two daughters and this was one of the few Hotels that could accommodate us all in one room. The room was comfortable and although a little further from Rome city center than we wanted, it worked out fine with a Hotel shuttle or taxi's.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Ihawk Excellent choice for vacationing family
This hotel lives up to our expectation of a crowne plaza hotel in every way: room/bed cleanliness and comfort, facility conditions, staff helpfulness, etc. It's located just off city limit (hence no downtown noise) and 10-15 minute taxi ride from city center (taxi fare ~13 euro). Taxi is perhaps the only viable means of transportation on weekends (buses run every half hour and hotel shuttle runs every hour only to one specific location) - there is an on-property taxi stand usually with 2 or more waiting taxis. The hotel provides no-commission money exchange service. This is one of only few ihg hotels in Rome that offer rooms for 3 and it suited my family's vacation/tourism purpose perfectly.
Some minuses which didn't affect my family much: below average breakfast, outdoor pool unheated, hotel shuttle requires ticket purchase and it goes to basically just one location (which changes depending on whether morning or afternoon).
Overall we enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this facility.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Pettycash64 Very nice hotel
I've stayed in the Crowne Plaza St Peter's on maybe 7 or 8 occasions in the last two years, and it's a great hotel, very convenient to my client's offces. Very comfortable, good value for money, and the staff are always helpful and pleasant. The restaurant is good but not brilliant - but Rome has lots of excellent (and very expensive) restaurants so you have extensive choices if you choose to eat out. A highly recommended hotel.

Definitely use this hotel again very comfortable quiet rooms and lovely and clean. Breakfast was very good, lounge bar snacks good and the addition of the pianist playing in the background was excellent. The pool area very good with beach towels supplied and comfortable sunbeds. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and the courtesy bus very handy.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by PamNDale Very Comfortable and Relaxing hotel
We stayed at Crowne Plaza after finishing a two week cruise, so we were looking for a quiet, comfortable hotel where we could still get into the heart of Rome quickly. Crowne Plaza was perfect.
Efficient and friendly shuttle for $1.5 Euro
We found the staff to be overly helpful and friendly, even though they were very busy, they took time to answer all questions.
Extremely comfortable beds and pillows; clean bathrooms
Outdoor pool area, walking trails
Serene, clean indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and steam were a perfect ending to a long day of walking Rome.
The transfers were prompt, efficient and friendly
We ate at both restaurants and found the food to be delicious. The restaurant next door was wonderful as well.
We will definitely stay at Crowne Plaza on our next visit to Rome.

we were family of 4 on holidays to rome and had booked crown plaza in via aurelia thinking that being outside at the price we paid it would have good amenities and rooms would be comfortable. we booked a superior room along with free pay tv and other higher end package.
distance from centre is substantial and each time u need a taxi u pay 20 euros each way - so 40 euros addl - their bus is not always convenient as timing and place it drops are not always useful.
we were amazed that a deluxe room or superior room had the same size and same amenities - no difference. we asked if there was a mistake and the staff was as rude as they can get at the front desk. staff typical rude and arrogant at the front desk.
the free paytv we booked never worked and then when i complained for it they called us at 1 am in night to tell us that its not working. now someone help me are they crazy.
room i paid was for a quad family room and we ended up having 2 queen beds - we understand queen bed but a family quad superior room for which we paid should have had more space and comforts. atleast this was the case across all the hotels we stayed during our 18 days trip to italy travellig from venice to lake garda to cinque terre to saturnia to amalfi and then to rome.
all in all at the end of our trip crown plaza really put us off.
i would suggest one shoudl stay in centre of rome rather than this facility. definitely not worth the money.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by tenniselbow A great stay,
Warm welcome on arrival, smiling and helping staff, comfortable bed, nice view on 5th floor.
Exactly what can be expected from a Crowne Plaza.
Useful shuttle to city center.
Only caveat was the service at the bar, we waited more than 45 minutes, reminded the barman 3 times to finally get some warm appetizers with our drinks.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Eddie82 Spacious rooms and plenty of amenities
This hotel was just what we were looking for. Location was perfect in due to the fact that we drove there and did not want the headaches of dealing with Italy's ZTL zones. Staff was very attentive. The whirlpool spa and indoor pool were a great amenity and we put it to good use, although it would have been better if its operating hours went a little later in the evening. Room was very spacious and found it to be very comfortable. Breakfast selection was great in addition to the food. We also found dinner selection was great as well.

Rated 1,0 out of 5,0 by cnhnoel RUDE Staff!! So so stay, never again
The ONLY reason I booked this hotel was for the free shuttle to St. Peters (it's acutally 1.5 euro ea/each way# and because the staff could communicate in english. For that I give the hotel 4 stars.
My overall rating however was from my experience with over 12 staff members - VERY rude. They are understaffed so the front desk rushes you though everything. They have their own shuttle so dont talk to you about public transportation. They have sloppy instructions to the tourist spots and what really tipped me off was that I told them what flight/airport I was on and they put me on their shuttle #14 euro# to take me to the WRONG AIRPORT! I was flying Ryan Air too so I had a very small window for error to get to the other airport #45 min away) and an expensive cab ride. Had they slowed down to LISTEN to me say where I was going vs just hearing "airport" that would not have happened.
Also, my husband forgot his flip flops so they wouldnt let him in the pool. I said, "he is litterally goign to walk into the water, he can carry his street shoes in" they said "no, you can BUY flip flops from the spa"
no food is included in the cost, you do get 2 waters (natural and sparkling) a day.
I had to get a toothbrush/paste (which they had for free) but the paste was all dried up.
Internet is an expense...well 30min for free, but you have to log your room number with the 30 minute code and there is no alert at 30 mintues so you can easilly go over.
They do have a printer for boarding passes.
They let me pay for my daily shuttle in cash but not my airport shuttle (mixed messages)
Piano in the lobby at night is nice.
Beds and Pillows are not comfortable.
Booking notes (anniversary) was never aknowledged.
No one was helpful pre-stay on how to get to the hotel from the airport. We figured that out through trip reviews.
I pre paid for the room but was charged 6 euro a day for local tax upon my stay.
Also note: we thought we were locked out of our safe at one point too, nice to know they can hack in but provided little trust in locking up our things after that.
In closing, I accomplished what i wanted (shuttle and english) but HATED my experience. I would have told them when I checked out but they never asked. The staff was just so flippent and rude. I would never recommend this place to a friend. Way over priced for what you get and i can do without the rude staff.

Two people stand out:
Roberto for his patience and helpful suggestions.
Alissa for her assistance with my Priority club card info.
Thanks to you both.
The restaurant has good service but the quality of the food did not compare with the restaurant next door. However, the wait next door to get a check was difficult for most people. We were in no hurry, so OK for us. Some of the other patrons were upset with having to wait for their check.

This was my first trip to Rome and opted to stay at the Crown Plaza as I've always had good luck with this brand. This hotel did not disappoint. Great facility & very nice staff. The breakfast was well worth the upgrade price and their shuttle offerings...while a bit confusing at first were excellent ways to get to & from the airport and downtown. From downtown a cab will cost you about 10 Euro...the shuttle if you can plan a little is 1.50 Euro each person. I was here just prior to my birthday but they even helped me celebrate with a bottle of sparkly. I would stay here every time.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by fahdms Poor hotel in a good location
Seeing as this is a Crowne Plaza the hotel is very dated and the rooms/bathrooms are in severe need of a refurbishment. Bearing that in mind this hotel is too expensive.
My Priority Club status was not recognised and the receptionist tried to package the services I had paid for as a complimentary offer from the hotel (bigger room and Wi-Fi).
The shuttle service to central Rome is very useful and the concierge was very helpful. The free parking facilities are useful for those driving.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Alanb777 Ok
I booked on the Internet using my points. Normally as a platinum priority card holder I get an automatic room upgrade. This did not happen and I did not want to make a fuss so I said nothing. The person who booked me in did not offer me the other normal perk for the status ie free Internet but gave it to me when I asked.
The continental breakfast at most hotels includes fruit and yogurt and bread plus some cold meat. I was surprised that these were excluded from the options. Service was friendly.
Bath room plug was broken so we could not empty the bath on the first night but was repaired the following day on our request.

Great 5 star hotel away from the hustle of the city. The hotel has great amenities and a wonderful breakfast buffet. The pool was a welcomed treat, just had some cloudy weather that didn't allow for good usage. The hotel has a shuttle which is beneficial, but we took the metro everywhere. It was only a 15 min walk away down a busy road, but it worked fine.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by BMOC OUTSTANDING LOCATION, BUT
The food service was outstanding as was the room and housekeeping. The front desk which is most times the best was questionable. I speak many languages but not Italian and only one fellow spoke English well which is fine but this point really messed up my transfer from Hotel to airport on the last day. Yes I got there on time but I had to pay twice for the same services. Also the extra charges were not exactly correct but I did not say anything about it. Just nickel and dime stuff like an extra 6 Euro. But missing the flight would be a big deal. Still it is not the fault of the Hotel if these indendent companies don'r perform well. The regular Hotel shuttal was excellent and I got there on time for the flight. So all in all it is a wonderful Hotel and a great location really liked the lobby bar and the breakfast staff. When I come to Roma again I will stay here.

Lovely hotel, could do with some refurbishment or re-decoration in places. Comfortable bed, generous room facilities with restocking of products e.g shower gel, soap, towels etc daily.
Hotel food needs to be radically improved. Very expensive and not very delicious, we had to eat out every evening.
Spa and indoor swimming pool and fitness centre a plus, shame the hotel does not admit under 16s in the pool. My 11 year old daughter unhappy not able to use swimming pool and outdoor pool was unavailable during the month of April when we visited.

I have already completed the questionnaire at the hotel which I handed in at the front desk before leaving. Service at the hotel was excellent as were the amenities. We loved the evenings in the bar which offered a variety of nibbles and appetizers with drinks and the wonderful paino playing of Nino Soprano. The standard of food in the restaurant however was not what we had come to expect from a Crowne Plaza Hotel and as Gold Members, we have stayed in many hotels all over the world - this year for example in Russia, Los Angeles, New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong. These points have already been raised with the hotel.

Rated 1,0 out of 5,0 Poor location and unclean rooms.
We had connecting rooms with sleeper sofas for my husband, myself and our 3 children. The mattresses and pillows were stained. The couch mattress was as thin as a sleeping bag and there were no extra sheets, blankets or pillows in either room. The rooms were not clean. There was actually vomit on the wall! I wouldn't let my kids walk barefoot on the carpeting after seeing that.
The decor is tired and dated. We sat in the lobby for 90 minutes before checking in trying to find a different hotel. As it was Easter weekend, nothing was available...not even the Holiday Inn Express (which at least was conveniently located). This hotel calls itself the St. Peter's area, however it is close to nothing. They offer only 4 shuttle buses daily, only in the afternoon, into Rome. We spent a fortune in cab fare to get back and forth.
Staying at this hotel put a damper on the end of a wonderful vacation.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by VacationCrazy Crowne Plaza - Rome
LOVED this hotel! The staff were so attentive and the place very clean! There was only one issue that we had. We went to the indoor swimming pool because the outdoor pool was closed. My two daughters used the steps (10 and 13) and beat us down to the spa. They were told they could not swim but when we (two adults) got down there the woman said that they needed to be 16 and needed flip flops or the white slippers found in the room. So, one of us went to the room to get the slippers while I sat in the waiting room with the girls. When we got our slippers and began to go to the pool she stopped the girls. I asked what the problem was. She said that they had to be 16 years old to go into the pool. I again said but we are adults and will supervise them. She then said no they can not swim at all! It was not a communication issue as she spoke perfect english! I understand that it was part of the spa area and I guess they did not want kids running and screaming, but tell us that before we sit there for over a half hour waiting to go in! So, NO POOL except outside which wasnot open!
Restaurant was very good, service terrific and the bus to the Vatican was reasonable. However, their times were strange. The bus went to the Vatican in the morning. They then only went to the center of Rome in the afternoon. So if you took the 9 am bus, you needed to take the bus back before noon or you had to take the metro. The hotel was very far from everything but accessible via bus and train! Loved the people!
BTW, my son turned 16 and got a great bottle of wine from them in his room! The adults drank it the next night!!!

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Timzi Good Location & Great Staff
The hotel is well located & not too far away from the Vatican & the centre of Rome. The layout of the hotel is good although the rooms facing the main entrance / main road can get a bit noisy if the balcony door is kept open, the need to keep the balcony door open was due to the reason that the A/C was not available during our stay as the hotel mentioned it was still considered as winter season. It would be recommended that the A/C facility be provided to the guests who require it as it used to get pretty warm within the room epecially at night. The staff were very helpful & accomodating & the breakfast was good. Over all it was a very plesant stay & we would certainly recommend this hotel for fellow visitors to Rome. Hope to be back soon.

Rated 1,0 out of 5,0 by jamo Glad I only stayed 5 nights!!
The hotel was very loud: The walls are so thin that one can here every word that is spoken in the room next door or on the hallway. Also there is a school right next to the hotel so one gets to enjoy a loud school bell every hour combined with the noise of yelling children. This goes on until late afternoon. Since the air-conditioning wasn’t working in our room we had to sleep with open windows. So taking the morning hours to recover from a long night of listing to the TV in the room next door was absolutely impossible. When I saw a flyer advertising the good sleeping conditions in the hotel I thought somebody was making a very sarcastic joke with us.
The hotel itself needs a renovation: the wooden furniture on the balcony looks like it has never been painted within the last 10 years, the tiles on the balcony had irremovable stains and the curtains seemed yellowed.
There were many little details that gave the impression of a needless service: The lit of the water boiler in the room was broken, even though this was obvious to see it was never replaced. For tea in the room there were only cheap plastic spoon that melted when one poured water in the cup. There were only two little milk packages per day for two persons so that we only got to enjoy one coffee in the morning after a long night with few hours of sleep.
The food in the restaurants was totally overpriced in relation to the quality that was offered: Best Example: The breakfast buffet for 18 EUR! A ridiculously small choice and variety was offered. The service personnel is so slow that one has to look for cutleries and drinks oneself. I was having breakfast for 1,5 hours and the waiter didn’t even come to our table once even though only a few quests were in the breakfast restaurant that morning. I even had to clean up the dirty dishes myself to have enough space on the table. For that kind of money I would expect a lot more!
I felt that my time at the Crown Plaza was anything else but relaxing, I felt extremely stressed and over charged. The only time I was really satisfied there is when I got to check out and go home!
