Granted, I would probably not have stayed here without my Hilton Honrs points, but what a dream stay! They greeted us graciously and with humor. The upgraded room included a view of Roma that was unbelievable. The room and bath was the ultimate in luxury. La Pergola, the three-star Michelin restaurant, was worth ever penny of the experience. I truly felt pampered and welcomed at this glorious property. I'm saving my HH points for the next visit. Wonderful!

Room Tip: The city view rooms are worth the extra dollars/points. The view is incredible and the balcony isa d...

This hotel is what we had expected. We were only staying in Rome for three days, but we wanted to indulge as we had our three younger children with us for a potentially once in a lifetime holiday. The Waldorf Cavalieri did not disappoint. The amenities were luxurious and the staff is impeccable. We ate in the lounge multiple times and the waitstaff knew us and our kids on site and were extremely gracious. The food prices were steep, buy hey, it's a Waldorf Astoria hotel.

We were worried about the convenience to the city center, as this hotel is off to the west a bit, but the shuttle runs all day and most of the night and private tours abound, making the location not a problem at all. And the view - my goodness the view. Must be one of the best in Rome - make sure to ask for the highest floor possible and don't skimp - get the Rome side for sure. You will not be disappointed.

We had Hilton Diamond status, so our breakfast buffet was free, but if you aren't getting a free meal, maybe opt for somewhere else locally - it was good, but not great.

An amazing European trip capped off by an amazing hotel stay.

Room Tip: Definitely choose the Rome view side, high floor. It costs a little more but is WELL worth it.

Being a Hilton Honours member I have stayed in a fair few Hilton establishments over the years. I can honestly say that this is the best by far. The pool is sublime, the staff charming and friendly, the rooms and Imperial lounge are amazing. We have had the best time in Rome and will definitely be returning to the beautiful Cavalieri. Thank you :)

Stayed here for 3 days for a business meeting, I had a room at the club floor facing the city.
The room was big, the bed comfortable and the balcony had a fantastic view over Rome. There was a big pool and a spa, but I did not try them. There was wine and snacks in the lounge, but I was not too impressed with that compared to my stays at hotels in Asia.
The staff were very polite and always helpful.
The hotel is not in the center of the city and You will need transortation by taxi or their shuttle bus. The magnificent view compensates for this in my opinion. Bars an restaurants in the hotel were excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the city. The other side is no good.

I recently visited the Hilton in Roma and it has an excellent reputation. I have previously eaten at the Pergola restaurant on the top floor which is a truly amazing experience. This time I had been invited for dinner by work colleagues who were visiting from another part of Italy and they were staying in the hotel for one night. The problems started when I asked reception for directions to the bar. They asked me to leave them a document for access to the hotel so I found my UK driving licence which is the new credit card type with photo. They would not accept this as a document but wanted a passport but I do not carry my passport in Roma!!!! The Duty Manager said sorry sir but you cannot come into the hotel. I therefore snuck past them and ate with my friends in the very expensive hotel restaurant (not the Pergola) where a very ordinary plate of pasta al pesto cost only 38 Euro!!!!
A rather sad experience. Every other Italian authority accepts the driving licence from the police and carabinieri down. But the Hilton no.

Dear Guest,

We would like to thank you for taking the time to submit a review, but we would like to clarify a few matters. Guests visiting the hotel to dine at our restaurants or meet friends at our bar are not required to register, but we ask our visitors to register if they decide to meet our clients in our hotel rooms for security purposes.

The valid ID's for registration are all passports, European ID cards and only Italian driver's license as established by the local authorities.

We hope your dining experience was an enjoyable one and look forward to welcoming you back on a future occasion.

Pros: Excellent staff, very friendly, responsive and helpful at almost every turn. Physical condition of the hotel is quite good. Hourly, complimentary shuttle into the heart of the City is comfortable and helpful. Complimentary water each day was very much appreciated. Views of Rome on a clear day are spectacular even from lower floors they are good if not great. Rooms were spacious and had a sitting area and nice nice size balcony. Being out of the heart of the City is a mixed bag. There is almost nothing immediately around the hotel, but it is a respite from the hustle and bustle and cab rides from most places were 15 euros (about 10 mins at night when traffic was lighter).

Cons: -Hotel services (internet, food & beverage, etc.) are very over priced and there are few options immediately around the hotel. We walked to a small neighborhood market area about 10 minutes away just to get a light breakfast and see the neighborhood (mostly residential). As for wi-fi, we had just stayed at a Hyatt in London and at least wi-fi in the lobby was complimentary so you could download a quick item or your emails and go for the day without additional charges, it would be good if this hotel adopted that model.
