The hotel is great for families. It is extremely clean, and the rooms are spacious and well equipped. The beds are big and comfortable. The bathrooms even have a converter already built into the wall.

The hotel has 2 pools, one inside with the spa, which is free except a massage. It has a large hot tub, steam room, and exercise facility. Youngers kids under 16 years can't go there, even with adults.

The large outdoor pool is also nice, but seats fill up very early each day, and people leave their belongings there to reserve their spot.

The hotel staff is VERY VERY nice, but most everyone in Rome is nice (SO much different from Paris!). Ask for Maryanna at reception if you are there in the morning. She is so sweet, nice, and just a warm, friendly person to talk with.

You can buy everything you need from reception desk, including bus tickets, tours, etc.

The location is great. You can take the hotel shuttle for 1 euro each way until 9pm, or take the local bus #98 or #881 which both go right into town and drop off right near the hotel. Buses cost 1.5 euros each way, but start at 6am and run til midnight a.

There is a supermarket for groceries within walking distance (left out of hotel, left at 1st light, walk about 2-3 blocks to first intersection/light, take right. Supermarket is on right about 3-4 blocks just before gas station. Takes Visa)

There are restaurants in the hotel that are good, but prices range from 10 to 20 euros per person. Not too bad, unless you have a large family. There is a ristaurante next to hotel (take right out hotel, immediately on right) that is reasonable (8-15 euros), but only open for dinner. They have take out pizza for 7.5 euros.

There are some VERY reasonable diners within walking distance (take left out hotel, left at first light, diners on your right). They have good burgers (3 euros without chips), and pasta dishes for 5euros.

I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Ciao!

Our family of four stayed here for four nights while in Rome. We had booked the hotel using points but I would stay here again even without the points. The building is old but you're in Rome not Chicago. The lobby was attractive and the rooms were clean and well equipped. The staff were professional, accessible and spoke very good English. We had some issues with our room safe and our air conditioning which were promptly dealt with. The concierge service was friendly and prompt in helping us make a dinner reservation, which we had to change more than once. We found the location great, as it was easy to get into the city center but got you away from it all after a day of sight seeing. There were several transportation options easily accessible from the hotel with the shuttle for 1E, public bus and taxi's readily available. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I stayed here recently (May) for a business meeting lasting 2-3 days. The hotel in general is OK to good, but showing signs of wear and tear in places. The staff were all friendly and helpful, so no issue there. The pool is also very nice as is the location, if you want to be in the quieter part of town. They do have a "shuttle bus" which can take you closer to he center which is helpful and good value.

My concerns, for the most part, are related to the business meeting aspects. We had meeting rooms just off the lobby, where the lights didn't work particularly well (strobing from time to time) and the noise from guests was frequently disruptive. From that perspective, I would not recommend its use.

One other final insight; be aware that this hotel is seemingly used by tour companies and cruise lines and at certain times of the day is overwhelmed by the number of guests cramped into the small lobby.

In summary, if you're not there on business and don't mind lots of people hanging out in the lobby at certain times then this could well be the place for you. For business meetings, probably not.

I have recently spent a week at this hotel to celebrate my 60th birthday with my twin sister and best friend who was also 60 in june. We combined the holiday with lots of sightseeing and chilling out by the pool! The staff are amazing and so helpful and made our stay very enjoyable.I would especially like to mention MARCO AND FABIO who were so friendly and helpful to us and are a credit to your hotel. Not. forgetting all the reception team who were extremely helpful advising us on trips, restaurants etc, especially Alessia who always went that extra mile. We all had an amazing time loved being at the Crowne Plaza and will be back one day!!! Also a mention for Dino (forgive me if the name is wrong) who entertained us playing the piano every night in the bar THANKYOU! We can't wait to return!!!!!

We came to rome to celebrate our 60th birthday all three of us in june this year 2012 and stayed at the crowne plaza st peters. Hello to everyone who work at this lovely hotel. We had a wonderful time. Marco you were amazing also Fabio so funny. Alessia,what can we say just truly a ray of sunshine,and so helpful. we are sorry to not mention you all by name but thank you all for your help while we stayed with you. Also must not forget Nino who played the piano with beautiful music. It is about 20 minutes away by bus or taxi but that is purely because of traffic, remember your in Rome. The plus is the pool because we stayed for 7 days it was lovely to chill out in between trips. Rome is amazing, also Florence a must visit.

City bus stops 1/2 block away; bus is free-just hop on and off as the Italians do! No need to use the hotel shuttle but it is available at 1E with a regular schedule. Hotel shuttle picked us up at FCO airport & brought us to the hotel for a nominal fee put on our hotel bill.
The hotel itself is very nice but they need a hospitality desk or concierge badly. Breakfast provided with room rate was adequate but not special. We used breakfast cold cuts and cheese on croissants to make lunch time sandwiches, along with a banana. Be sure to ask for American coffee!
Location is perfect as it is Trastevere section across the Tiber River from central Rome. It is quiet and easy to catch buses from there to downtown Rome, plazas, the Colisseum, monuments, etc. We used a taxi to go to the Vatican.
Rooms are large and very comfortable; a/c problem was fixed quickly.
I really do recommend this hotel and location if you are visiting Rome for all the above reasons!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the gardens and pool are lovely. Rooms facing entrance drive can hear noise from parti...
