We were dropped off at Idea Hotel Cinecitta on May 16 after being abruptly told by Hotel Koru upon our arrival and check-in that they were closed (see my review of this hotel experience). I’ll just get to the point with this hotel which we stayed in for one night before checking out the next day.
The Good – 1) Most of the desk attendants are fluent in English and helpful. 2) The have spare Iphone and other chargers if you forget to bring a converter. 3) They offer very hot water and there is good water pressure.
The Bad – 1) The location is horrible for tourists. It’s about 30 minutes from the city center so you’ll need to take a short bus trip (walking across a busy highway) and then take the metro to get to the heart of the city to see any of the famous sites. If you take a taxi, it will cost about 35 € one-way and the traffic can get congested. Don’t count on walking to any nearby restaurants unless you’ve been looking forward to going to McDonald’s. 2) Don’t be fooled by the hotel description unless they’re describing some high-end deluxe room we didn’t see and were not offered the option for upgrading to. Our room was tiny with small beds similar to bunk room styled beds (We had 2 beds, if you’re American think of 2 twin beds but smaller pushed together). There were no formal bedspreads or blankets and no these were not Duvet covers but more like thicker sheets that you lay under. 3) The bathroom we had was the older Italian style where the shower is simply a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor and a showerhead mounted on the ceiling (no enclosure). As a result, you must carefully watch your step as the water splashes everywhere and is all over the floor after you shower and the smooth tile floors are dangerously slippery. They don’t have irons because they’re considered dangerous but they have these type of showers- good grief! 4) Don’t count on free wi-fi or good tv reception (I think we got 3 channels) in your room but downstairs has a big tv that blasts MTV and public wifi is available. 5) No pool, gym, or other amenities. This hotel is as basic as you can get. We didn’t try the breakfast buffet.
