Reviews - Hiberia Hotel

Disappointing staff.

When I booked this short break I was really looking forward to it as it was the first time myself and hubby had been away without the children. Rome itself was a lovely place and we would go back again but not to the same hotel. This hotel was rated as a 3 star, in my opinion there was no way that it was a 3 star hotel. The staff were unhelpful and unapproachable. The breakfast choice was limited and not nice at all. Plus in the write ups it says there is sky but the only English channel was CNN. The best thing about this hotel was the location.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hiberia Hotel

Viva la Hiberia!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My bf and I had a hard time deciding where to stay when we opted to take a last minute trip to Rome this past spring. We kept hearing that we should stay in the city center, but looking at all of the maps of the area proved more confusing than we realized. We first stayed at a Holiday Inn, and we were dropped off on the side of a busy and remote highway by their bus service, and left to climb a steep hill to a shady looking and run down hotel, with no city, nothing, in sight for miles around. The room had no hot water, no heat, and a bathroom that i could barely turn around in, with a shower that was actually a corner with a glass door in front of it. We cancelled our stay and opted for a Holiday Inn Express, at the location closest to the city center. It was clean and modern and way more accomodating with a great breakfast, but still, it was a long bus ride away to the city center, and we were anxious to find a more central location. At a cafe, a friendly (everyone was so friendly in this city, and we fell in love with it! And if you aren't fluent in Italian, never fear, your high school spanish will help tremendously!!) waiter pointed us in the direction of Hotel Hiberia, and told us that is was a nice place. Was it ever! It is a five minute walk to everything important, which will save you on bus fare and taxi fare, and strolling through the cobblestone streets behind the hotel is one of my fondest memories. The room had beautiful marble floors, a jacuzzi, and a decent view of some stately looking palm trees and a few nice buildings. (I'll post my pics). Breakfast was also decent, they use a little place next door to set up bagels, cereal, and juices for you, and the entire stay was a nice experience. Clean, spacious, romantic, with an old wrought iron elevator that I want to sell on the Antique Road Show or have in my dream house one day. Remember, the heart of Rome is where you want to be, and staying anywhere else is just not worth your time.

Nice Hotel, but the Air Conditioning Is Insufficient

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Hiberia is in a good location near the Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia, and has a small but nice lobby and bar area and inexpensive Internet access. Breakfasts were also pleasant. However, the air conditioning we had in two adjacent rooms was entirely inadequate to cope with the late June heat in Rome. At 3:00 a.m. one night, the temperature in one of our rooms with the air conditioning on was 86 degrees. The staff tried to remedy this by providing floor fans, but they were inadequate. This would be a nice hotel to stay in at other times of the year, but not summer unless the air conditioning problem is remedied.

Poor quality

from A TripAdvisor Member
The air conditioning was only working in the reception. The rooms were small and uncomfortable. I recommend to keep away from this expensive and abusive "albergo"

The only pro is its location in the centre. If you do not mind to sweat all day long while in the room, this is your place.

Excellent experience in Rome

from A TripAdvisor Member
We visit Rome every year since we love it. In all our previous visits we stayed at the Hotel Fontana but had a terrible experience last August so we decided to change this time. We found an excellent hotel in the same area which is far better and worth value.
We stayed at the Hiberia for 7 nights in May and really enjoyed our stay.
The hotel is situated close to the house of the President and is about half a mile away from all of the main sights like Trevi fountain, Spanish Step and the Coliseum. We found it easy enough to walk around the City but of course this might not suit everyone - however there are buses, trams and cabs as alternatives. One of the charms of the hotel is that it is not a modern hotel in the centre of the city but in an area that has not been overdeveloped and has plenty of small restaurants, shops and cafes nearby. The bedroom was very large comparing to most of the other hotels in Rome. It was well equipped and we spent most of the waking hours either in the city or in the hall where we had a drink or relaxed in the late afternoon. The breakfast was fine, reasonable choice and good quality. We found everyone helpful and pleasant. After many evenings of searching the web and constantly returning to the Hotel website, from the moment we passed through the entrance we understood we had made the perfect choice. It was a delight for my husband and I to spend 7 nights at The Hiberia during the beginning of May. In previous visits to Roma we had always stayed in hotels but this time we wanted something renewed and comfortable yet still within walking distance of the sights and we found it all at the Hiberia. The fact that Hotel Hiberia is a converted old building was a clue that the rooms would be small like most hotel rooms in cities such as Roma are. We stayed in Room 426 which was very large, clean and well kept with a very nice modern bathroom.
All of the staff at Hiberia was more than willing to help with our arrangements and to make our stay in Rome exceptional. Beginning with the emails for reservations and arranging a driver to pick us up at the airport through to our final farewell we were always confident that the entire staff had our best interests in mind. The help we received in scheduling the "best" tours was greatly appreciated as were the various recommendations for restaurants.
We want to thank all of the Staff as well as the Proprietors of Hotel Hiberia for making our stay in Rome so wonderful and please know that we look forward to a return visit to Rome and will definitely choose Hotel Hiberia. Thank you and Best Regards to you and yours, Anne and Todd

Strange experience

from RegTravel
We wanted to stay at the Hiberia following the good reviews here.
However, they quoted E235 per room per night which was
too expensive for us.
They said that if we just turned up that they would
find us somewhere else
[another hotel in the area (3 or 4 stars, max 1km)].
However, when we arrived they only offered us a place 4km away
which we declined. We then were allowed to leave our luggage
with them whilst we walked around the neighborhood looking
for somewhere else. Not a satisfactory experience.

Great Hotel and Location

from judge
Have just come back from a short break in Rome - Stayed at the Hiberia after reading the reviews here - cant agree more. Great location, friendly staff - rooms are not huge but well furbished. Breakfast OK. If you want to be central to all sights you cant go wrong - we walked to the Trevi in 5 minutes, Forum likewise and it took us 20 mins to the Vatican. Would definitely stay again.

Great Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just got back from rome yesterday, and found this hotel absolutly wonderful. I can not imagine anyone having bad reviews about this hotel, unless they do not do alot of european traveling. Staff was extremly great!!! Friendly and oh so helpful!!! Location is absolutly perfect! Highly recommend to anyone!

Excellent Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
After hours of researching a hotel for a four night stay in Rome, I decided on Hotel Hiberia based on feedback on this website and the Venere.com website. The hotel surpassed my expectations after reading the reviews of others. My boyfriend and I stayed in a double room on the second floor. The room was very comfortable and much larger than I had imagined after reading the reviews. The bathroom was very clean and had a jacuzzi shower. The bed was pretty firm and was two twins pushed together to make a double, but I have heard that that is common in Europe. The staff was very friendly and I had no trouble checking out. The breakfast was decent, the pastries were the best part. The hotel is in an excellent location for sightseeing on foot. Victoria Emmanuelle is literally 2 minutes away, the Pantheon/Trevi Fountain is probably about 10 minutes away, Spanish Steps about 15 and the Colusseum about 10 minutes away. I walked to the Vatican and it took me about 25 minutes to a half hour, but it is a really nice walk, especially if you want to enjoy the sights along the way.

A word of caution if you book through the Venere website. Make sure you create a username and password before you enter your credit card information to reserve a hotel. I was originally going to stay at the Hotel Pomezia in Campo dei Fiori, however it required a 48 hour confirmation so I entered my credit card information and waited. But I never heard from the hotel. So I tried to contact Venere. customer service and they never contacted me back either. Finally I searched the internet for the phone number of Hotel Pomezia to find out the status of my reservation but I could not find it. I booked Hotel Hiberia instead and when I got to Rome I walked to Hotel Pomezia and explained the situation. Sure enough, they had a reservation for me. I am very thankful that I took the time to walk over and straighten it out because I would have been charged if I had not. Also, after seeing Hotel Pomezia, Hotel Hiberia is a million times better (and it was cheaper!)

I would definitely stay at Hotel Hiberia again.

Great Location in Rome

from Ariesgirl65
I went for a long weekend holiday (4 full days & nights) with my sister in mid. Jan. 2005 and I stayed at this hotel. I found this hotel from a website that advertises hotel in Rome and this hotel was considered to be 3-star. The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to all main sights in Rome, especially the Trevi Fountain, Colloseum, Spanish Steps, and the main shopping area of Rome. I paid Euro 90 per night for a twin bedroom. The room is OK and clean. The staffs are warm and friendly. Buffet breakfast was adequate. There are many good restaurants around there and the coffee snack bars are great. Only 90 cents for cappuchino if you stand by the bar. The hotel is easily reachable by Express Bus #40 from Termini Station, just stop at Via Nationale. You can even take this bus #40 to the Vatican City and you can buy the bus ticket from the receptionist. Overall, I had a great holiday. I will highly recommend this hotel for those who wants a budget holiday. I will definitely stay in this hotel next time.

The perfect place to stay!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family took a trip to Rome for one week in October. Our stay at the Hotel Hiberia couldn't have been better. The location is spectacular. The hotel is a walk able distance from all the famous monuments and shopping areas. The rooms were very clean. The staff were all very kind and knowledgeable, in particular Giuseppe in the morning. He was very helpful to us. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the beautiful city of Roma!

Top Local Tips for Rome

getting to pompeii from rome if going by train from rome to pompeii only buy ticket as far as naples and then buy separate ticket at naples to pompeii getting off at station near site. we bought tickets straight thru from rome (changing at naples) not realising that the naples to pompeii ticket we had bought was for the train that goes to the other pompeii stationin the town that is about 20 mins walking distance from the pompeii site itself.

Rush hour buses Avoid them - well, you don't have to actively avoid them, as they're too full to get on.

To and from Campino airport If you arrive on a budget flight you will probably fly into Campino Airport. My tip is to book the Terravision coach for your trip into Rome but book a taxi on the way back. It's a bit like organised chaos with lots of people and lots of baggage, waiting around at the coach pick up points near the main train station, which equals plenty of opportunities for pickpockets etc.
