We stayed here for 3 nights in November. I wouldn’t recommend getting the shuttle bus from the airport as it took us nearly 2 hours to get to our hotel due to drop offs. By taxi it takes about 30 minutes and should cost no more than €30.
The rooms were nice and clean but very small - we had asked for a room with separate beds but may as well have had a double bed because the beds were pushed together due to the size of the room (I did manage to push them apart a little bit).
The walk in shower has no door, so it’s not very private, this wasn’t a huge issue for us though.
We only had breakfast in the hotel once as we had early trips booked and it doesn’t start til 8am. If you ask at reception, they will do you a breakfast in a bag to take away with you. I would recommend checking the bag before you leave, as one of our breakfasts consisted of 3 drinks and 1 yogurt with no spoon. Apart from that, the breakfast was fairly good.
The majority of staff were helpful. Please note that they will not pre-book taxis unless it’s to the airport. We tried to book a taxi the night before one of our trips as we weren’t yet familiar with the metro and one man on reception said they were unable to.
It’s a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro, which is handy. There are also a few shops nearby. I would recommend going to ‘ice dream factory’, which is within walking distance - they do the best gelato!
We didn’t find anywhere nearby to eat, so ended up using the metro every night - we found that everything was quite spaced out. We also didn’t get to use the roof top jacuzzi due to the weather as it’s not heated, so it wasn’t open.
Overall, it wasn’t a bad experience but it wasn’t great either.

We have also the double or twin standard or deluxe room ideal for two persons and under request can have the classic bathroom otherwise they can have a modern solution but always with the WC facilities separated with sliding glass doors.
I would like to add also some information that may help the readers during their stay in Best Western Cinemusic Hotel. Rome has two airports that are Fiumicino and Ciampino
The first one called also Leonardo Da Vinci and it is the main airport that is located about 30 kilometers from the hotel. From there you can take a train and stop to Roma Tuscolana station that is 300 meters from the hotel and the cost of the ticket is 8 € per person and it is going to take 40 minutes to arrive. Otherwise you can get a taxi that you can find in the airport or we can arrange a private service that a person is going to wait for you outside of the arrival exit, both services have a cost of around 50 € for a normal car.
From Ciampino instead you can take a bus that can take you till the main railway station of Rome that is Termini and from there take the metro and stop to Re di Roma Metro station or get the bus to Anagnina metro station and from there always with the red line of the metro reach the Re di Roma subway station.
Otherwise as you correctly mentioning the cost for the taxi is shouldn't be more than 30 €.
The taxis in Rome you can find them parked to the main railway stations, airport and main touristic attractions parked and ready to offer their services. In case you need to book a taxi for the railway stations or airports it can be booked in advance and we can do it for you for free. For all the other destinations unfortunately it can not be reserved the taxi service but with a simple call the taxi is going to arrive in a couple of minutes.
The breakfast time starts at 07:30 am and for those that they have booked early visits to the monuments of Rome we offer the breakfast box, that we can put a variety of products, in order to take it with them.
The Best Western Cinemusic Hotel is located to a safe district, close to Colosseum that is one of the most famous archeological attractions in Rome, that offers you a variety of local restaurant with the first one only 50 meters away from the Hotel, totally non touristic that can offer you the most authentic dishes from the Italian cuisine. And as it concerns the gelato around the hotel and not more than 300 meters you can find 2 of the most popular gelaterie of the zone that are “Petrini” and “Procopio”. In the same distance you can find a bar that is famous for the tiramisu and it is called “Pompi” or else you can taste the original the original cannoli siciliani to “La Cannoleria Siciliana”.
The jacuzzi is located on the roof of the building in an open space and you can have a relaxing hot hydro massage and some sun in totally relax. Unfortunately the tub is located on the roof garden in an open space and because of the weather conditions sometimes cannot be used.
I would like to thank for your reservation as well as for the time that you have dedicated for your feedback that can be used to improve the experience of the persons that are planning to visit the eternal city of Rome and stay in Best Western Cinemusic Hotel.
