“On a whim...”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I came across a groupon deal that included a bottle of wine and breakfast for 3 nights at this hotel. We purchased it and made our reservations within a couple days. This was a really great decision since Rome was pretty quiet in January. The hotel staff was very friendly and helped us find our way to the metro (which is a 20 min walk at a casual pace, if you are in a hurry, it takes about 15 mins (we timed it)) and told us which buses to take into town (the 360 from the train station in the direction of Zama to the hotel, 2nd stop from the end of the line)

The road the hotel is on is a little noisy, but if you are doing as much walking and site seeing as we did, it won't matter because you will be asleep as soon as you climb into bed. The room was really clean and the bathroom was spotless. We found that the shower was a bit small. I'm an average size person and I found it to be a bit tight.

Breakfast was very tasty and there were several options of pastries, toast with many types of jam, ham and cheese, cereal with plain yogurt and a selection of juice and teas. The espresso and cappuccino were delicious.

We would stay here again when we go back.

We were relocated to hotel Cilicia from another hotel, so we can't really comment in value since we paid for somewhere else. However, our stay here was delightful. All the staff were wonderfully polite and helpful. We loved the location, which, being slightly out of "tourist central", gave us a charming insight into Rome where real people live. That said, it's not too far out: a pleasant 30 minute walk to the Colosseum. All in all, we thoroughly recommend it.

My husband and I found a deal on Groupon with this hotel and decided to spend three days in Rome. the hotel has a 3 star rating so we weren't holding our breath, especially after reading reviews that the staff were a bit rude. But when we got there, the staff were very polite and accommodating, the room was quick big, the bathroom was very nice, and the hotel is located in a quiet part of Rome, not too close to the center, just far out enough to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to public transportation and the tourist sites.
the room had a small television with many cable channels, a comfortable bed. my husband and i observe kosher strictly so when we brought our own food for dinner, the staff had no problem heating it up for us. not every place is willing to do this.
if i have to be very spoiled and picky my main problems were as follows (and if this is the worst i found, that makes this a really great hotel):
1. internet: the reception gives you a 12 hr. username and id (or as many as you need for the duration of your stay) but the internet signal in the room is not very strong. not strong enough to download a video online or to video-skype.
2. the shower: it was so small i couldn't close the doors or i wouldn't have had room to move around in it.
3. this last one is really looking for a bad needle in a haystack of really good: the sheets and towels had some holes in the them, and the fitted sheet on the bed wasn't fitted, so it pulled off a bit easily. but everything was clean.
to sum up: i would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a very pleasant stay in rome but not be too close to the busy center!

This hotel was real delight, we couldn't believe our luck, first visit to Rome, a journey into the unknown. We chose this hotel 'blind' and boy what a find. First impression was that we had actually checked into the wrong hotel! The parking facilities were great, right in front of the hotel, lovely gardens where you could take breakfast, and what a superb breakfast it was. The bedroom was clean and spacious with a spotlessly clean bathroom. There was a small problem with the wi-fi in the bedroom but there was a guest's computer in the hotel lounge. The staff were extremely friendly. The location was also great, a short walk to the bus stop (10 minutes to the city center) and a slightly longer walk to the underground railway. So all in all this is a great hotel to stay in. I thoroughly recommend it

Room Tip: There is little traffic noise so it's never a problem, but for those who do have trouble sleepin...

We stayed at the Cilicia Hotel for 3 nights and everything was ok. The receptionist that works in the night shift was speaking pretty good english and he was nice... When we left the two ladies were... not very polite, but probably we've been to so many hotels that now we expect people to be friendly and to say at least "hello" and "goodbye" when you enter/leave a hotel. The room was clean, facing the street...much noise, but after you walk a lot of hours in Rome and try to visit everything that you can... when you get back to the hotel... you have such a deep sleep that you don't care about the sound :)) The breakfast... for a lady, it's enough food...but for a man... it's bad. Slices of cheese and ham (one type), some pastries, cereals with yogurt, coffee, they say orange juice...but...:), fruits. No eggs or omelette or something warm... And the girls from the restaurant don't even say "hello"... and not even a word if they see you are looking for something and you can not find it... 1 km distance from the Metro station... about 20 minutes. When you come from the Metro, the first sign to the Hotel says "500 m", the second one...after walking 4-5 minutes says 600 m :)) and after other 4-5 minutes...another one says 600 m :))) it's funny :)) Anyway, on a scale from 1 to 10... i would say a 6 .. :)
