When we first chose to book Carlito's way, we only expected our basic requirements to be met. However, the room which we were given simply blew us away. We were given a room on the 3rd floor but luckily the hotel has an elevator that made life much more comfortable. The room itself was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The... More

Very reasonable price and variable level of service and friendliness from the staff. You will be nickeled and dimed every chance they get at this hotel. But, it is clean and the bed is comfortable. It is located one block from the metro. My wife and I had a shared bathroom unit on the top floor. It was a small... More

My partner & I stayed here for one night (which we were gutted about once we'd seen the room!) and it was beautiful! We expected something small & dingey when we booked a 'hostel' & paid a more 'reasonable' price but were delighted when shown our HUGE room with a very large tv, & heaps of space to wander around....

Carlito's Way stands out as the nicest room I've stayed in ever. The standard double room in the hostel with shared bathroom sounds a little grim. In reality it is spacious, beautiful and with a reliable/cheery cleaning service. This is irrelevant to the extremely reasonable price. Though the reception is a small walk away, the service is quick and the... More

My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights here recently for a flying visit of Rome. Given the price we didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised. We had a private room with shared bathroom. The room was huge with super high ceilings, comfortable bed, safe, ceiling fan and even a big TV. The bathrooms were quite nice also with great... More

We stayed 7 nights at Rome and were so thankful that our room was amazing. The hotel does not have a single building (i.e. I think there are 3 different premises) and does not have its own reception wherein we had to go to its partner hotel (i.e. Hotel Des Artistes) to check in. We were given a room in... More

This place was an excellent stay considering the price. The person who served us while we checked in was helpful and nice. I was not expecting the room to be so large, comfortable, and clean. The bathroom was also clean, and we shared it with several other rooms. We got to check our bags for free for the day we... More

This place was very clean and friendly. The rooms were large with plenty of space for everyone staying. The staff was polite and attentive. Good price with a clean atmosphere, the only thing was the beds squeak A LOT! Otherwise, this place was worth the money!

We booked this place for approx EUR70 night back in September 2010 (not November 2011, but that was the earliest date trip advisor would allow me to select). It had a shared bathroom which wasnt an issue given we never even saw our neighbours. It was located down a side alley off the main street behind a number of big... More

We had a good room, though it could have been cleaner, however from what I could gather, we were lucky, some rooms were much worse. The bathroom window was simply a hole in the wall with no curtain, which was slightly off-putting, especially as the shower faced the "window". The staff were not overly helpful and there was no kitchen!... More
