Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Texxxx Much nicer than I expected
The rooms are very large (huge compared to other hotels in Rome I have stayed in). Safe in the room, good door locks, and good furnishings, bath, etc. Food was ok, but the hotel caters to tours and cruise passengers, so the meals were aimed at people who wanted a good meal early but not the quality of the restaurant next door, which is a higher class restaurant. Only complaint with the restaurant was the manager and waiters were never the same, which hurt service. Hotel was a 10 euro cab ride from St Peter's and the bus to the metro stopped right in front. 1.50 euros got me bus and metro to town and good for 90 minutes. Walking was not good, as footpaths were very narrow/non-existent. But bus was fine and hotel grounds were lovely.
Although the location lacked access to local cafes and stores, I would definitely stay there again and continue riding the bus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by longhornhammy Great room and service in nice location
This is the second time I stayed at this particular hotel and found the service and accommodations to be even better than I remember from 5 years ago. The staff were very friendly and efficient and also willing to help with directions/questions. Our room was very large for European standards with nice, comfortable bedding. We selected this property knowing it was a little further out from the city center of Rome, but found easy access to everything we wanted to see via the public transportation system. Hotel even sells metro tickets and shuttle bus tickets making it easy to plan travel. I loved the quietness of the hotel after long days of sightseeing and the hustle/bustle of traffic in Rome center. We only ate one meal at the hotel which we found nicely prepared. All in all, a great stay for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roma-boy-r-dee! Typical Americans Travel to Roma
I did not want to go, but my wife laid down the law, so I went... my first time to Europe and the Crowne Plaza helped my with my anxieties with the big trip from Pittsburgh, PA. Front Desk was great, Bar Tender was exceptional. I am planning to go back. Always a concern with transportation, no problems, used the public bus, taxi, subway. Our advice to travelers for the first time, see the Vatican and St. Paul's first during the weekday; see the Forum first and then the Colosseum... always eat at the small restuarants for authentic Italian food. Also, don't be a dope and carry a large wallet, passport, etc. Use your smarts, pick-pockets are there, not as bad, don't be a target.

Liked everything about this hotel. Service at front desk and at breakfast and lunch was excellent. Laundry service was very reasonable, prompt and courteous. Bus stop was very convenient and taxi service was right outside the hotel front door. Plenty of secure parking spaces for our vehicle. Highly recommend this hotel and we will stay here on our next visit to Rome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Engineer1244 Very helpful staff. Great internet connection.
Very nice room with good view of well-kept grounds. Staff were very helpful. Room was great. Wonderful towels and great bedding. The light switching was somewhat confusing to us US visitors. But it seems to be different at all the hotels we stayed at. The breakfast was great and very convenient. Checkout was done expediously.

We stayed in the Crown Plaza for a first visit to Rome.
From the airport to check in to Hotel room took 45mins.
Brilliant, friendly, helpful staff would go out of their way to make our stay problem free.
Lovely room with a massive balcony.
Staff in the restaurant were friendly and efficient and the food was top quality with a good variety.
We were there in April and were a bit disappointed that the outdoor pool was closed.
Easy access to the city centre on shuttle bus, or public bus to the metro.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Family Visit to Rome and a great hotel to stay at
The hotel is on the outskirts of rome but the transport provided by the hotel and local bus and metro services make visitigng the centre of rome very easy
The hotel is excellent and the staff are very helpful and friendly. They gave us good info before our arrival on taking taxis and were also very helpful on directions in rome
The food in the hotel was very good. We arrived on the sunday and there was a special easter sunday brunch buffet which my family really enjoyed. The waiter service was very good and attentive
We really enjoyed the stay and would stay again

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Olygal Could be better
Details make a difference! The first night we had no face cloths and none were available when we requested them. The second day they were not provided until we requested them.
There was some deferred maintenance which showed a lack of attention to detail.
The reception desk did not have change for five euro notes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pete&Repeat Nice room; several problems
Overall, our stay was good. However, we didn't know how to operate the lights (the card station was a new experience); the phone did not work without jiggling the receiver buttons, therefore we did not get our wake-up calls (we reported this to the front desk); the Ethernet cable jack had been pushed into the wall and therefore, did not work; the drain plug knob in the bathtub was not tight and therefore couldn't be closed (I tightened the set screw just enough to get it to work); the cooler/fan did not cool the room (apparently the A/C we not on "yet") so the room was stuffy. If you opened the door, it was warm/humid outside plus there was no screen to keep bugs out. Had to join the IHG Rewards Club in order to get a WiFi password. This was a bit presumptuous when it should have been provided to guests as a courtesy.
The breakfasts were good with plenty of variety. Lounge was comfortable.
Other than that, it was OK.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by verdims It is OK
I stayed for 5 nights for convention Holiday. The hotel is quite dated but clean and well maintained.
Room size is good and well equipped but lacking of English channel. Bed is comfortable and up to Crowne Plaza's standard. Internet connection is payable but I am getting it for free as IHG member, the speed is quite decent.
Bathroom looks dated, made of green marbles from the 80's.
Location is quite far from the city center. Taxi ride to Vatican city will cost around 12 euro in the morning and to Spanish Step around eur 16-19 (with 3 eur night surcharge)
The hotel is providing shuttle service (1.5 eur) payable but the stop is not actually in the middle of the center, still requires good 15-20 mins walk to Trevi Fountain and the surroundings.
I used the spa facility, nice jacuzzi and steam room.
Lunch at Papillon restaurant is not so bad and have decent value (around 11-15 eur) per person for primi.
Will I stay there again? Maybe for business but for vacation, I prefer to stay somewhere central to save taxi cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DRBB We Would Love to Come Back !
We enjoyed our stay here. The desk staff was very helpful with the Metro/bus and hotel shuttle information. Great selection at breakfast buffet. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed Nino Soprano who played every night at the piano bar. The food and drinks were very good at the bar. After a very long day of sightseeing, the music really helped us unwind. The spa was clean and we really enjoyed the sauna after a long day which also helped us unwind. The bed was very comfortable, but what we found odd was that there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom. Lastly, our hotel bill was correct and the check out was fast and easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vvaa Excellent breakfast and attentive staff
We really enjoyed our stay at The Crowne Plaza St. Peter's. It was conveniently located next to public transportation and the buffet breakfast was excellent.
Perfect for a family getaway as there is no need to have dinner outside the hotel. The staff was warm and welcoming.
There is room for improvement in the hotel furnishings, as it seems a bit outdated, but other than that, our stay was very enjoyable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by xxhawaiixgirlxx Not as nice as I thought it would be
The rooms were not clean seeing that we had ant everywhere in the bathrooms. Then our balcony door would not lock making it likely for someone to break in and steal stuff from us. We had a bad experience in Rome and I feel like even the hotel let us down. Internet was spotty and was not reliable. The staff tried their best, some staff was really reliable and trustworthy, some were just nice to you in front of your face and then once you walked away they would roll their eyes.
We were not happy with this hotel. We would have rather paid more and stayed somewhere else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thetruthbetold2014 Good value, let down by some weak elements
Great value for family visit to rome, scheduled coach service to vatican in morning and along the Tiber in the afternoon was good, but a little limited, but it is easy enough to get public bus and metro into the historic centre.
Outdoor pool closed as expected in April, despite 20+degree weather, indoor pool is not free for guests, you have to buy slippers at 4euro per person. This should be made clear on website.
Breakfast excellent in all regards especially at package rate.
Dinner awful however, pictures on menu look gourmet, but what is delivered is nothing like the graphics. The dining room was also terrible. The staff were good however and removed the charge for the worst food. The bar is fairly good but a little too close to the lobby and a little small, however the piano did add atmosphere. Dinner problem was resolved as there is a very good restaurant just outside the front gates where we ate for the second and third night,
Air con in room did not work, mattress was very soft, room was otherwise ok.

We really did experience comfortable beds and great service during a four night break in Rome. The shuttle bus was very useful and it was a treat to come back to the Wellness suite after a day's sightseeing. All the staff were helpful, friendly and professional, the food was good and the piano player the perfect accompaniment to a drink in the lounge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pickyfromSYorkshire thanks for a great stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay on the Wellness package and were upgraded to a superior room as a platinum member. Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to assist us and make our stay a pleasurable experience. Use of the spa pool each day was very relaxing after a busy morning sightseeing. The bed was deliciously comfortable and we slept really well. Breakfast was excellent!
Our only reservation about the rooms was the inability to cool the room to a low temperature (the ac fan seemed to only work at a setting of 21 C which is too hot for us) so we had the balcony door open each evening. This was fine at this time of the year but I would not wish to be there when it was really hot in the summer.
