The only reason I didn't give this 1 star is because the price and location were good. It's only a 5-10 min walk to termini, the main train station in Rome. The price was only 25 euros/night. Aside from these things, everything else was terrible. I should definitely have stayed elsewhere. I arrived at 1 in the morning, due to... More

Cressy was 5-7 minutes walk to Termini - centre underground station so it was very easy to travel: from/to airport and around the City. There is a bus (maybe 492) in front of the hotel took around 15 minutes from there to Trevi Fontana/ Spanish steps. Others attraction such as Colloseum, etc.. We used metro from Termini. The hotel owner... More

Ok firstly, its not a hotel, it is a hostel... But besides from that, for a basic stay it is fine. We stayed there 4 nights in a double room and everything was clean and tidy. We had no disturbance from other guests or indeed outside. The bathrooms were as clean as people left them, the only thing, the shower... More

After a worried 30 minutes trying to work out where the hotel was (Roma streets are tricky), we arrived and buzzed in to the Cressy hotel on the 5th floor. ( the hotel is on the same road as the Termini station, look for the small sign on building) The room had no TV but fine as we don't speak... More

The lady working there provided us... More

I stayed in Cressy hotel for two nights, room was fair but quite cold, the bathroom had this old used soap-bars standing next to the shower which make me think that was not as clean as it looked. Staff is really nice. The best thing about this hotel is its centric location near the train stations and with shops and... More

I stayed here early July this year for 4 nights from my travelling up and down Italy. Overall I enjoyed my stay, not many complaints, just your average hostel. Location is ideal as it is less then a 5 min walk from Roma Termini, the main central train station. What I really liked about this hostel was that you could... More

This hotel has a good location, near Termini station and walking distance to all the attractions. The rooms themselves were average. Freezing cold and the heating did not work. The shower flooded and went cold after 2 mins and the water sprayed everywhere! The toilet let off a foul smell after it was flushed also. Some staff were helpful, others... More
