Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. The Manager was most helpful on our arrival and gave us a map and all the information we needed as to what buses to get and also recommended good resturants near the hotel. Good, plentiful breakfasts on offer. The bedroom we had was a good size with a comfortable bed. The en-suite was just right too. Hotel just a minutes walk from a handy bus stop to take you into the centre (at most a ten minute ride). Most enjoyable stay.
Reasonable 3 star hotel

Reasonably well located, well priced and clean hotel, although staff were quite unhelpful and unfriendly. It is a reasonable standard 3 star hotel pretending to be a 4 star hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Santa Costanza Hotel

Great hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My partner and I went to Rome on 20th - 25th March 2005 (during Holy Week). The weather was fantastic and sunny. The hotel is located in a good area that is not far from the City centre and is easily accessed via Metro and bus. The Express 60 bus stops just around the corner of the hotel and can be caught at the city centre opposite the Deutche Bank . The metro stops down the road from the hotel and involves a 7-8 minute walk to the hotel, crossing a busy main road.

Breakfast consisted of fruit juice, croissants, bread, cheese, ham, friut, yoghurt, cereals, tea and coffee. You can ask to have a capuccino if you want. Breakfast was served between 7-10am everyday. The staff were extremely friendly and the rooms were kept very clean as they were cleaned everyday. My partner and I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. There was noise from the main road as its a pretty busy one and I had to use ear plugs to get to sleep, but I'm a light sleeper. My partner didn't need to use them though. We were in room 109 which was small but very nice.

When we caught the flight back we caught a coach from Via Marsalla (Terravision coach) which is at Termini.

We had a fantastic time. I hope you do too :O)

A good choice for a good price

from metalliam
First impression of the hotel was not what I expected, there is some graffiti on a wall nearby, but I wasn't to know that most of Rome is like that. Once inside, any doubts I may of had on that dreary, rainy day were evaporated. Very cool interior, presentable staff.

It was February when I went, and the Air Con was turned off. This was a problem, as the room was really too warm, and the door opened to reveal some kind of wooden gate so you can't get out on to the balcony. I asked at the desk as to how to get some cool in the room, and the guy basically laughed off my concern, saying it was Winter, of course no Air Con. So, for those who struggle to sleep in heat, something to consider.

I would say the staff are slightly abrupt, i'd agree with another user who said something like along the lines of feeling like a hassle with any request. It could just be the way the Romans are in general. To be honest, you're not coming to Rome to spend all your time in a hotel, so the staff don't matter so much. The hotel is clean, the breakfast included is quite good really, i'm not much of a breakfast person but it was good to start you off. Everything's very clean.

The location is the reason it's one of the cheaper hotels, but it's still not that bad. I'm used to staying in hotels slightly out of the centre of wherever i'm going and saving sometimes 2/3rds of the cost of a centre hotel to a comparable standard. The Metro line is 10 minutes walk down the road, and a week long pass costs something like 12 Euros. This can also be used on buses, but I prefer using Metro to buses. Also near the hotel is a supermarket, handy for getting things like milk (your room has a fridge) and rolls, to save on the expensive tourist food vans. The food in the Bologna area (the nearest subway station) is cheap, because that's where Italians eat. They don't speak English, so try learning how to say "one large slice of pizza please" and i'd guarantee they smile. Top pizza at a low price.

There's a Chinese restaurant across the street, I wasn't too impressed with it. The food is great, but the service was bad. Our main courses were brought out at different times, kinda bad when you're trying to have a romantic meal...I guess there's always takeaway, but again, you're probably not going to Italy to eat Chinese food.

Definitely get the train in to Rome, and after that, take the Subway to Bologna, if you think you can handle it. The Taxi's are quite expensive, 30 Euros plus just to get from Termini to the hotel. When you're new to the place, it's difficult to try and drag luggage whilst looking for a hotel.

Overall, i'd stay there again if I ever went back to Rome. The week I stayed there would probably be enough, though. Maybe in warmer weather.

Another tip...DO take the tours of the Vatican and the Colosseum, i'd imagine it'd be pretty boring without them.

Great Value and comfortable

from Tats
We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend at the beginning of February 2005. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the rooms were nicely decorated. There was a nice buffet breakfast. The male receptionist was a little surly but warmed up after a couple of days. Though the hotel is a little way out of the main tourist centre it is well serviced by the frequent local buses stopping just outside and the metro which is only 10 mins walk from the hotel. It can get a little difficult to get tickets for the buses in the evening so plan ahead. We would certainly stay there again.

Very much enjoyed

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent 3 nights at the hotel. Found the staff friendly & helpful. The hotel is kept very clean & tidy. Bedrooms are more than adequate & clean. Easy access to the sites, either by foot or bus. Breakfast continental & enjoyable.

I will be returning to this hotel the next time I am in Rome.

Thank you Santa Costanza.

good for heavy sleepers

from uranium
We recently stayed at this hotel for five nights. The double room was good, comfortable and very clean. The housekeeping was excellent. The central heating was very noisy as was the plumbing, we could hear toilets being flushed and showers running. Fortunately, we are heavy sleepers so once asleep it did'nt affect us. The breakfasts were minimal and if down after 9am were unlikely to get much choice because as foods 'ran out' they were not replaced. The location is good, buses and metro very near. The chinese restaurant across the road is definetly to be recommeded, the food is excellent as is the friendly service. We 'lost' our camera to a thief on a very crowded metro train so our advice is to avoid getting on crowded trains and if not possible to ensure all valuables are well out of reach of other people. The local police were very friendly, supportive and helpful when we reported this incident.

So So

from shazza_h
I stayed at the Hotel Santa Costanza in May 2004. I found the staff at the front desk to be helpful, but I often felt like I was bothering them with my questions. They did make some good recommendations for meals (however the Chinese restaurant others have suggested was not recommended!). My room was very very small with poor lighting with only a single bed. There was barely enough room for my suitcases! However it was cleaned every day and the bathroom was also clean. The best thing about this hotel was the awesome free breakfast. Excellent selection. Probably would not stay here again as others who I have spoken to found better accommodation closer to town.

Our wedding party stayed in Hotel Santa Costanza!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Myself and my new 'husband' have just returned from our honeymoon - we were married in Rome on October 15th and took 40 people with us and we all stayed at the Santa Costanza Hotel. I spent literally hours of research on the web studying hotel reviews and prices and locations and we definately made the right choice to stay with this great hotel. For a large group, the price was reasonable, the rooms were lovely, the breakfast was nice but beyond all of that, the staff were fantastic! I have been e mailing the hotel for the last 4 months and on every occasion received a response to my replies promptly. They helped me with everything from transport for the big day, to finding me a great local hairdresser and this was all before we arrived in Rome! The manager Carlos and 2 other staff Manuel and 'little Carlos' did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. They put gifts in all the guest rooms for me and we were delighted to find a large basket of fruit and a bottle of bubbly in our room on the night of the wedding. They gave good advice on local banks and spent time calling around restaurants for reservations for us. All the other reviews tell you about the location but we didn't find it a problem, mainly we got taxi's to town and that cost about 6 euros. Granted, staying in the centre is closer to the sights but we were looking at all aspects on behalf of lots of friends and family getting the right hotel. The people local to the hotel were all so nice too, there is a pharmacy next door and the pharmacist was very pleasant and helpful. If you are thinking of staying here, I really can recommend it highly. The staff's attitude and helpfulness here really helped our wedding run smoothly. We had a mixed group of all different ages and everyone was pleased with the hotel. Well done Santa Costanza!

Pros and Cons

from beachglasslover
I spent one week at end of September at Santa Costanza. I was traveling alone and the single room I had was teeny tiny. I did realize there were differences however when I returned after a stay in Venice for a one night stay before my return to the USA there was a problem and I was sent to a "sister" hotel (Grand Hotel Fleming) and the room was hugh compared to the room at Santa Costanza. Pluses: the rooms were very clean, the linen was changed daily, the breakfast was substantial, the location was close to buses. Cons: the rooms are very noisy-I could hear people coming in and out of their rooms, the staff did seem distracted, they answered questions but did not elaborate, when asked where to get b us passes the were not specific about where-I did find the tobacco shop at the corner but because I wandered around looking for it.

There is a Chinese restautant across the street to the right which has a English menu and the food was fine, there is also a supermarket a little further down the street where you can get drinks, chocolates to take home much more reasonably that the minibar or stores. There are also places to eat down the right to the corner and turn left, well within walking distance.

one could do better, but not bad

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a week. Overall this hotel is okay but not much better. We asked for a terrace and a king size bed, and got it, but the rooms are tiny, the only "closet" is above the bed to the side. The rooms are clean though. The bathrooms are small and the hot water is limited unless you take showers in the middle of the afternoon or at 3 a.m. The service was mixed, we wouldn't exactly call it warm and friendly. The walls are paper thin. The hotel is about a 10 to 15 minute ride to the center of rome. there really isn't much around the hotel in the way of bars, restaurants. You can take buses anywhere around the city. The breakfasts are quite minimal and on the lame side.

Okay, if they have the time...

from Lisa1001
We have recently arrived back from five days in Rome staying at the Hotel Santa Costanza. Although we liked the hotel it’s self, the customer service from the staff was a bit of a let down. We either felt that we where bothering them with our questions or that they where far to busy to help us. When asking for a nearby restaurant on our first night we where given some vague directions and left to it. And trying to organise a late check out was a no-no. We didn’t find the restaurant by the way.
But apart from this it is a lovely hotel in a nice quiet area of the city and the buses are an excellent way for getting around and we can’t recommend the Chinese restaurant across from the hotel enough, for value and friendliness. We can’t wait to go back to Rome but I think we will be trying somewhere else next time.
