“Enjoyed our stay!”
Reviewed 24 March 2008

We stayed in Hotel Cressy for 5 days and 4 nights. The location is easy to find. The hotel is clean and tidy. If you are looking for an affordable hotel, i think the hotel is your best option because it's not too far from termini, have a nearby restaurants and internet cafes everything is nearby. Great location, really! Staff wise, they are very friendly, special mention to Roberto, thank you very much for suggesting places where to go and giving us directions.

If i'll ever go back to Rome again, i'll definitely go back to the Cressy. Maraming salamat sa'yo Roberto. Sa muli nating pagkikita (i'll see you again soon) hehehe. ---the 3 girls from England/Philippines (March 2008)

Like most people we left things late to book accommodation.

I was a little apprehensive, but i had no need for concern. The most important thing was the location and being so close to termini station took the stress out of the arrival process, with just a short walk from the station. From there the hostel is a good walk, train or bus ride through to the main tourist areas, yet central between the colosseum and the old city. The area is very safe and a good selection of interesting cuisine close by.

The rooms were clean, the bathrooms are quite new and well maintained. We stayed in a dorm to start, then moved to a twin which was quite spacious.

The staff very friendly, it almost felt like you were staying with friends. Highly recommended!

As other reviews have said, this is basic accomodation for the budget traveller.

Pros:-

1. cheap

2. clean

3. convenient for bus and train station

4. security - 3 locked doors between you and outside (room, property entrance, main street entrance)


Cons:-

1. location is not great
- there are a number of dodgy looking characters around, although we never felt threatened.
- lack of good restaurants in area
- not really in the heart of Rome

2. our room rate was not so cheap that a few extras would have gone amiss - TV, shampoo, 2 reading lights instead of 1...

3. no AC - would make this hotel probably a bit uncomfortable in July and August, although we did have a fan.

  • Liked — Clean and secure
  • Disliked — Perhaps a bit too basic

We've arrived around 8:00am and got the keys immediately which was good.
We had a double room with a private bathroom
The room was very simple, as espected from a 1-star hotel, but there were a few disappointing features:
The room was dark and the light was very dim;
There was nowhere to hang the towel in the shower;
The towels were not changed at all during our stay.
All in all it was okay for a budget traveller but no more than that.

We arrived at Cressy at 1:30 am due to flight times and we found Roberto waiting to show us to our room and to give us advice about sightseeing, pizzerias and pickpockets - very helpful! (I had emailed and called in advance to inform them of our arrival time because it was so late).

The hotel occupies the fifth floor of a fairly grotty looking building. However, we were pleasantly surprised when the door to Cressy opened to reveal a fresh and clean reception area. There is a lift but you have to make sure that you shut both sets of doors or the lift won't move. We only had one day where somebody had left one door open so we had to walk down rather than use the lift.

We paid for our stay upon arrival (we could have paid afterwards if we'd liked) in cash (no choice about that).

We were a group of three friends who stayed in a room with a private bathroom. I would advise people travelling in groups to pay a bit extra for a private bathroom so that they could be up and out before the heat made it uncomfortable to go walking.

Our room was larger than expected, clean and behind 3 locked doors (door to building, door to Cressy and then room door). This fully met all of our requirements as the purpose of our holiday was to explore Rome, see the sights and then sleep in a hotel room that was safe and relatively quiet. The only noise we had was the traffic. We slept with the window open on the first night but the traffic noise was horrific so we resorted to closing the window and having the fan on.

Location is fantastic! We walked everywhere apart from to the Vatican (we walked back from there) and saw all the sights we wanted to in the 5 days we were in Rome.

We would definitely stay there again if we return to Rome.

  • Liked — Location.
  • Disliked — Having to pay in cash.
  • Tips/Secrets — If walking around Rome in the Summer plan to be at you destination befor 11am (when it gets hot).
