The hotel is well located for the main tourist highlights; Trevi, Piazza Navona, Via del Corso etc. However, having stayed at a 3 star in the same hotel group previously, which was only slightly further removed from those attractions, I can't understand how this can be so much more expensive. I didn't rate the breakfast as highly as some of the other reviews either.

The only significant problem we had with the room was there were no non-smoking rooms available. Our room smelled of cigarettes for the first 2 days and gave me a terrible sinus headache. It was also a bit cramped but comfortable otherwise. Two of the four front desk persons were very nice and extremely helpful; the breakfast staff was extremely efficient. The location was great - we walked everywhere.

The location is great. My room was very noisy as it was across from the lounge at the hotel next door. The next morning when I told them the problem and asked for a room change they said they were completely booked and could not help me. They seemed to have booked memebers of travel group. In the morning it was diffuclt to find an available seat in the breakfast room.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Sistina. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was small and have twin beds, but worked fine for us. The location was excellent....very close to the Spanish Steps. Since this was our first visit to Italy, I am not sure how this compares to other hotels, but in my opinion, this hotel should be rated as a three star hotel, not four star. All in all , we really enjoyed our stay there. The breakfast buffet was very good. We will recommend this hotel to others because of the location and friendliness of the staff, however, I think you can probably find another hotel that would provide the same services, but less expensive.

This was a great hotel for the price. The desk personnel became our "best friends" within one day, and went out of their way to help us learn the language. The rooms weren't huge, but very comfortable. Great breakfast each morning. They were extremely helpful in making dinner reservations, taxis, etc. Location was perfect; within walking distance of the Spanish Steps. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Rome....Also don't miss dinner at the Tavernetta Sistina, just a few doors away. Claudio Pepi is a Hoot! You'll get extra portions if you tell him he looks and sounds like Pavoroti!

The best aspects of staying in this hotel were the very helpful staff, who gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants. Also, the included breakfast was one of the best we've encountered. The room was a bit noisy as it was located above a very busy street. This would be a plus for some and a minus for others. Compared to the other hotels we stayed at during this trip the price was a little high, so the value is not quite as high in comparison. But, I suppose we were paying for the convenient location - 10 minutes from the Spanish Steps.

This is at best a good two star hotel. I don't know where they come up with four stars. Hotel greeting was average. The room was spacious enough, however, the wallpaper was peeling near the AC, Faucet needed replacement,the small safe was not bolted down so anyone could walk out with it, AC worked but was very dirty, Smelled like smoke in the room, we asked for a non-smoking room, the window looked into a cluttered roftop,bedspread was too small for the bed, tv did not have one channel in English (I speak some Italian and got the idea of the dialog), the very cheap plastic cups broke in our hands when we tried to unwrap them, we had one dirty bath towel when we first got into the room, they had an extra phone in the bathroom for god knows what, they had a pant press but no iron, the full length mirror was partly usable since half of it was blocked off by an armory. The breakfast was good buffet style but the service to get coffee was poor. All in all there are better values in that part of Rome. We paid 174 Euros which was way out of line for the place.

The online photo probably showed the nicest and biggest room available. Ours was considerably smaller and not well decorated. It had a picture of the Mother Mary above the bed. It felt cramped. The hotel's best value is it's excellent location to transportation, landmarks, internet cafe, and restaurants. The rooms are small (we had a singe and a double.) The lift is very small (we had a wheelchair that wouldn't fit.) The hotel is in need of a good cleaning and touch-up painting. The carpets in the lobby and some public areas were dirty and stained. I felt the price was high considering the quality of the rooms. The breakfast buffet was adequate. The hotel staff was cordial but not overly friendly or helpful.

I would recommend Sistina Hotel to anyone who wants a great location, a good breakfast in the morning, a shower in their room, and friendly staff. The room was small - smaller than the 4 star rating would seem to indicate - but it was kept well with efficient maid service. The breakfast was very good for an inclusive breakfast. The best part was the location - within minutes of the Spanish steps and the Trevi fountain and within 30 minutes walk to the Vatican and Colliseum.

Although the Hotel had a bar we were unable to get drinks or coffee in the evening. The room needed a coat of paint,it looked very drab. The bed was the hardest mattress I have ever tried to sleep on. But for a short break not a bad location within walking distance of most of the main sites.

We enjoyed the hotel -- we knew it wasn't going to be a Ritz Carlton, but it was good enough to sleep in at night, the room was spacious. Our shower was a bit of a disaster, but that was our only complaint. The hotel was right near the Spanish Steps, and you could walk literally anywhere in the city, which is precisely why we chose the hotel. We were very happy overall!

This hotel is perfect! It's conveniently located to all major sites (i.e., Spanish Steps 4 blocks, Trevi Fountain 6 blocks). Also lot's of great restaurants within 1 block, convenient for dinner. Since public transport is not as available in Rome, as in other major cities, walking everywhere was a breeze from this hotel's location. However, the Metro is available 2 blocks away. The breakfast offered was varied and delicious! The staff were very helpful, courteous and kind. The room was on the small side, but comfortable -- I didn't go to Rome to spend time in my room anyway. It was exactly as expected. The description on Venere is accurate. The room was also quiet! This is not a luxury hotel, but definitely serves the purposes of a budget conscience traveler. I would absolutely go back and stay at Sistina!!

I had a different expectation of the hotel. I stayed there in 1981 and it has changed very much. It was nicer before and had more charm. Now it is just one of a "group".

A nice hotel overall, but nothing special. Rome is very expensive nowadays, so it's hard to get a good value. There was a large Madonna hanging over my bed, but the bathroom was cramped and the towel rack kept falling off. By asking for a room in the back I got to be in the center of Rome and still enjoy the quiet.

The only real complaint is that the airconditioners in both rooms (2 parties) did not operate correctly. One of them saturated the carpet with water and after 2 days it smelt terrible. It was our first hotel in Italy, but we later found that none of our hotels in Italy had satisfactory air conditioning. The Sistina is in walking distance of the Trevi fountain, Piazza Navona the Pantheon (gorgeous and free)and in the other direction, the spanish steps.If you go early while it's cool you beat the crowds. I would stay again for the position.

For a three day stay in Rome Hotel Sistina is well situated near the top of the Spanish Steps. The rooms, food and service is good at a reasonable price. The hotel is small in a narrow street (Via Sistina) and cosequently the views from the hotel are limited, especially if, like us, you are in a back room. So it would be advisable to check the situation of the room when booking as they could not relocate us to a front room. John and Moira Carr.

We were so disappointed when we saw the interior of Hotel Sistina. Upholstery so dirty, hallway so filthy, the door to our room is about to come off everytime we try and open it, the bathroom stinks (the toilet bowl with so many stains). In short this hotel is overrated-this is not a 4 or even a 3 star hotel. This is only a 1 star hotel. We were tempted to move out but just had to leave with it for 3 nights!!!!

The service and the welcoming was rather poor at this hotel. At least, after 2 days finally one employee at the reception eventually made an attempt to be friendly. Room was encouraging to go out as often as possible. Breakfast was not worth mentioning. But the location of the hotel is rather good, relatively close to the Spanish Steps. And Rome makes up for any unhappy hotel experience.

Overall stay was ok. The problem is that the Hotel Sistina is very far from being a 4 star hotel. Unfortunately the price was for a 4 star hotel, but the actual quality was in my opinion at the level of maximum 2 stars. What I also disliked was the great mismatch between the pictures provided in the Internet and the reality. If the pictures would have been realistic, I definitely wouldn't have stayed in this hotel.

I was very disappointed with the quality of service. Although we had requested a room with terrace on the 4th floor, we were surprised to find out we had to carry our luggage because the elevator was broken. Management did not offer to switch us to a lower room nor did they offer to give us a discount for the inconvenience. The rooms looked much smaller than the pictures in the website. The window, once opened to check out the view, would not close properly. And worst of all, the charge for a 5 minutes phone call, from the room, to a friend no more than two miles away was a complete rip off ($17 Euro). An all-around unpleasant experience.

We stayed at the hotel for five nights. Via Sistina has its fair share of motorcycle noise, but the windows have noise shutters on the inside, which shut out the noise. The street is very safe and never deserted. The hotel is very close to the top of the Spanish Steps and to Piazza Barberini. Since both of these piazzas have metro stations, the location offers easy access to almost anywhere in central Rome. The hotel is also very close to Via Veneto with its choice of nice restaurants and cafes. The photograph of the rooms online is a bit outdated, I think. The hotel seems to have two types of rooms (both at the same price, but completely different from each other): 1) The rooms that have a window out to Via Sistina on one side and another out to the side street 2) The rooms that face just the side street The rooms in the first category are much better decorated. The rooms in the second category are very small. Upon arrival, we were given one of the rooms in the first category and there was a hole in the wall. Our room was changed to one of the rooms in the first category after the first night. The terrace is nice, but it could be made better use of. It would be nice to have breakfast on the terrace. The breakfast room consists of an anteroom next to the bar which has a window and a connecting room which has no windows. The staff members were very courteous and helpful. It was like a small family hotel. The hotel is a little overpriced for a three-star hotel, probably due to its location.
