“Location excellent, the rest average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

The NH Guistiano is in a very good location, breakfast was very good, service was ok but not great, the room was large and generally clean. The beds were extremely hard and very uncomfortable. Had to ask a couple of times for towels as they only gave two for the three for us and housekeeping didn’t come at all one day. It’s an ok hotel and its location makes up for some minor glitches.

This quaint hotel close to the Vatican, Piazza Popolo, Spanish Steps and Piazzo Navone is stellar.

Very clean with ample accommodations. I'll get the only negative out of the way. I arrived 3 days in advance of meeting family already in Europe and the concierge outside the hotel (ahem) was absolutely useless! Not sure if it was his designer suit or tired from working out prevented him from even lifting a finger as I struggled with one case and one carry on. I had to hoist it up one giant stair not knowing there ws an alternative, It was not a welcome affair as all he did was stand and check himself out in the mirror. He failed to even a welcome hello or to advise there was a ramp access! OMG-horrid arrival!!!

My room was not available and so offered to rest in lounge area, other jet lagged individuals were around sleeping sitting up! LOL

So, the rest is positive dining, appetizer bar (a bit ditzy servers but charming in the comedy). I was charged for three drinks when had one but later rectified at checkout when I reviewed my bill. Really need to stress they reduce the salt in the pasta but wow, the buffet breakfast is a stunning and tasty cornucopia. the dinner is hit and miss depending on how well your server listens to you. Berto walked off midway with a guest and then brought me his meal in the confusion; yet there were only 8 folks that night!
The Internet is a bit of an effort as one needs to pick up a new as code changes daily! When needed assitance in room, service was prompt and no tip expected.

They do push the upgrade but my room was fab; balcony, arm chairs and a very new bed. The breakfast is the best by far in all my years of visiting Italy mostly northern from Paris/Swiss boarders.

This is a great Roman holiday spot withing walking distance of many spots like the early morning trekk to the Vatican and back for a snooze and then a cafe for a latte or machiato to go shopping and then a gelato.

Highly recommended once the outside guy is addressed and trained up.

Room Tip: Some rooms were veiled and under construction and the balcony cannot be used. Make sure to ask about...

We reserved a 9-night stay here and asked for a "quiet" room upon arrival, preferrably facing the interior courtyard. Glad they suggested otherwise. The inside courtyard is NOT at all pretty: some metal a/c framework or something. Ugly. 9 days of looking at that would have driven me crazy. Instead, we upgraded for $20EU/night to a 6th floor 2-room suite with a balcony. View of ST. Peter's dome is beautifully lit up at night. It WAS quiet! Maybe we were lucky because we saw the opposite side of the hotel was undergoing renovations outside. Only drawback to this room was the SMALL bathroom - a few bumps and bruises to show for it.

Location was good for us. We walked over to Castel Sant' Angelo, but everywhere else we went, we just asked for a taxi. No problems with that and the average we paid for a ride was $12-15EU.

Breakfast is a large buffet, but exactly the same thing all 9 days which included the hot scrambled eggs and sausage/bacon, most likely for us Americans. Mimosas, juices, coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate, cereals, yogurts, fruits, rolls, all their luncheon meats and cheeses, pastries galore and of course nutella. You won't leave hungry.

Yes, the hotel is a modern style.

we arrived at this hotel and was offered the upgrade. We choose the upgrade and was not disappointed. We had a beautiful 2 room suite with views of st. peters basilica. The hotel was modern and very functional. After being to tired to walk the city one evening, we had a blast at the hotel bar. The room was large by european standards, with the 2 room suite being helpful. The hotel was central enough to walk to the vatican, piazza navona, the castle and the pantheon. The hotel was also in a great neighborhood where one could walk to a great dinner without the tourist feel. I thought the location is what made this hotel so nice. The fact that I felt we were in walking distance to most sites was very nice, but just on the outskirt of the madness of central rome. We met many locals at the restaurants that were helpful to us and offered us advice for our trip. The breakfast was good and satisfied us. I had a great stay here and would definitley recommend this to friends and family!

Room Tip: if offered the upgrade, especially if it's the balcony view on the 7th floor, take it!!

Great hotel centrally located to shops,restaurants and more importantly a lot of historical sites of Rome..Spanish steps, Vatican, Piazza Navona, Castello degli angeli and much more. Michelin star restaurants are almost on the doorstep. Hop on hop off bus station very close by and if that's a bother, we found taxis quite reasonable. Hotel is modern,clean, and staff very helpful. Small suites are quite spacious and comfortable. Had room service and the meal was very good and still hot when it got to the room. Breakfast was also very good. Would recommend this hotel for convenience and value.

Room Tip: Choose small suite.

I stay here quite a bit for work as it is an "approved" hotel. Each time I'm not impressed.

Pros:
- Good location
- Decent food
- I think the manager means well, as when I've complained I get a response... but nothing changes.
- Rooms are large; windows open

Cons:
- Staff are often rude, unhelpful and don't speak good English
- I have waited for 10 minutes while 4 people were behind the desk, but 3 refused to help me
- Have had housekeeping not clean my room and have had amenities not replaced
- The restaurant is a disaster at breakfast. No one ever cleans the tables. The last thing I want to see at 7am is a room full of dirty tables and half-eaten food. Additionally, there often aren't glasses or enough food out.
- Fitness center is laughable and doesn't open until 7am (not good if you have an 8:30am meeting)
- Internet is sporadic
- Pillows and bed are not comfortable at all

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not near the construction and that is away from the street noise.

We chose this hotel for it's reviews and location. We wanted to have a nice spacious room that's close to most attractions.

BEWARE: for those traveling before August, this hotel is going through renovations and it's not going to pleasant if you get a room facing the scaffolding.

Check-In:
We arrived early around noon and were told our room wasn't ready yet and we should walk around and come back at 3pm. We were offered an upgrade to a junior for 27EU a night but declined since we will be staying a week and 27 a night adds up to over $250 extra. What puzzles me was that the flight crew on our flight arrived after us and got their rooms within mins. We walked around and came back at 3pm to have them say our room was not ready still. We booked a superior room and was told there wasn't any available at that time and upgraded us for free to a deluxe room.

Room:
The minute you walk in, you can feel the stuffiness and dryness in the room. We turn to our window to find out they had given us a room facing the construction. The scaffolding is literally same level as the floors, so if you leave your balcony open, they can just hop over. Rooms were very clean and spacious. They didn't have a room with a king bed so they gave us a room with 2 twin beds pushed together. They were pretty much your average rolling twin beds. They didn't lock on down so the first night we find the beds moving from the wall if you lean on the headboard. Mini bar is not free and I wasn't sure if it will be free for the upgraded suites so always ask because they charge 5EU per soda/water. Walls and floors are THIN. We can hear everything from the top floors. While we were resting from jet lag, we can hear the guest above us walking around in her heels and moving her chair as everything is wood panels and no carpeting. Flooring and walls are the biggest complaint as they do not block out any sound when furnitures are moved.

Bathroom:
Bathroom was very spacious and clean. Only complaint is the shower door or lack of. It's just a panel and water will get on the floor. The room was prepared for one so you will only get one toothbrush and towel. Good thing is we found an extra set in the closet and we bought our own toothbrush so that didn't matter as much.

Hotel:
The restaurant had probably one the nicest service in the entire hotel. Everyone at breakfast was friendly and food was always restock. We went down to breakfast at different hours and never saw any food not being there from the previous days. The bar is literally empty all the time. You will see people sitting there time to time but no one will be there to service you. It was the saddest bar I've ever seen. Wifi speed is around 15kb so expect it to be 3 times faster than dial-up. We got free wifi, but for people who doesn't have it included, it is around 5-6EU for 24hrs.

Location:
This is actually a really nice location. It is less than 10min from the Vatican, 15-30 min before you hit the central area like the spanish steps and trevi fountain, 4 blocks away from the nearest metro, and 2 blocks from one of their shopping districts.

I was told during checkout that renovations will be ongoing for at least another few months. They hope to finish by August but it's not always the case. Workers start early around 8-9 and some days they just chisel away at your walls outside. We woken up to hear the most annoying sound ever with rocks falling onto our balcony every 5 secs.

Room Tip: Call beforehand or let them know during check-in to not get a room facing renovations.
