Ways to get towards the Crowne Plaza Rome St

How to get to the Crowne Plaza Rome St. Peters, a look at the facilities, and what it is prefer to stay there.

The Crowne Plaza Rome St. Peter's is really a luxury hotel located in a basic a part of Rome, away from the center and around 3 kilometers in the Vatican. It boasts an outdoor pool, a spa, a pool bar, a restaurant, oyster bar and over 300 rooms which 11 are suites.

It is every bit appropriate like a business conference venue as it is a family holiday hotel, and also the staff are polite, helpful and knowledgeable. English skills vary, but they are generally high, and other languages will also be spoken with varying levels of proficiency.

The Location and becoming back and forth from The Crowne Plaza Rome St. Peter's Hotel

While your accommodation is on vacation, it's also connected using a regular, if infrequent, bus route, and is a 15-20 minute walk in the Corneila Metro (tube/underground/subway) station, that is well served. However, it's unlikely to worry most visitors, as the Crowne Plaza boasts it's own bus service into town.

For a small cost (1 Euro per person, each way, upon reservation), public transit takes around 15-20 minutes towards the Vatican, and about 30 minutes to Rome city center itself. The stop is just away from center, along with a short walk will require visitors over the Garibaldi Bridge and into the city.

The Hotel is also a short taxi ride from both Rome airports, and has its own taxi rank, so visitors are never lacking transport options.

The rooms are well-appointed, en-suite, with ac, that is mandatory if visiting in the summertime. All rooms have a minibar and safe, lcd TV (predominately Italian, French, and German channels) with WebTV and also the usual pay-per-view options.

    Eating and Drinking at the Hotel

    The restaurant comes with an outdoor and indoor section, but it's better to reserve a table outside in summer as it is quite popular. There's an a la carte as well as a buffet option.

    Italian menus can be a bit different – pasta isn't considered a main dish, for example – therefore the buffet option enables you to take a little bit of everything and try the neighborhood delicacies.

    (And people with a penchant for sparkling wine should try the Prosecco, which matches very well using the choice of meats on the buffet!)

    There are also two bars – a swimming pool bar, which also serves food, and also the main bar next to the restaurant. Bear in mind, though, that the pool bar cost less than the main bar (by about 20%) but closes at 18h00.

    Breakfast is in the Winter Garden Restaurant, and both a continental buffet and (slightly more expensive) full American style buffet can be found.

    The Pool and Spa

    The outdoor pool is open all day long, and it is perfect for a dip following a hot day's sightseeing. The spa is a superb inclusion, and it has an inside pool, but is out of bounds for kids under the age of 16, which is a shame, but understandable.

    All in all, it’s a comfortable hotel, with good facilities, including use of PCs with Internet and printers (so checking in for the return plane is really a snip), and well situated. Recommended for families, and people who enjoy being just a little out of town to enjoy a bit of tranquility following a day within the city of Rome.
