Fodor's Review

Celio. There's much more to brag about than proximity to the Colosseum at this chic boutique hotel. Each of the small guest rooms is named after famous Italian painters such as Tiziano, Cellini, and Michelangelo and its decor represents the work of the artist—all are sumptuously frescoed and have French windows and elegant, marble-tiled bathrooms (some with Jacuzzis). The hotel is wonderfully situated on the romantic Celian Hill, just a stroll from the Santi Quattro

Coronati Church and the Villa Celimontana park. Other perks are the rooftop terrace where breakfast is served in warmer months and a fitness center.

Would never go back!

I would not recommend this hotel or ever go back to itthe management treated us very rudely. Although it is decorated nicely, the rooms are unbelievably small and too dark to read in, you cant even raise your arms in the shower, and worst of all, the attitude of the staff is haughty and condescending. They have put all their money into expensive décor and well-heeled brochures, but dont be fooled. The money would have been better spent on learning

good customer service and providing a decent continental breakfast. We asked where the thermostat was and were told that we didnt need one because the temperature is perfect all through the hotel. Later (it was so cold) we asked for a blanket and after first telling us we should have asked in the morning because he didnt know where to find them and that the bed covers were very expensive, he eventually brought a pillow to our door. There are no blankets on the beds--you have to use the "expensive" spread. When we questioned whether he understood what we were asking for, he became loud and rude and stated that he understood all the English he wanted to understand. All the other hotels we stayed in on this three week trip throughout Italy were pleasant and accommodatingbut not Hotel Celio. When they called a taxi for us, the fare was always 5 euros more than when we walked out the door and got our own. And the breakfast was only rolls and coffeeno cheese, no prosciutto, no fruit! We were never told about the Internet access, but noticed the Italien guests using it. The hotel is all show and very cold. A very unpleasant atmosphere.
