Opulent hillside retreat overlooking the Eternal City, with a three-Michelin-starred restaurant and a palatial spa

The Lowdown

Atop Monte Mario, the hill that dominates the Eternal City, Rome Cavalieri is an opulent retreat that offers five-star service and views to match. Set within 15 acres of lush parkland, the hotel is tricked out with the kind of luxe trappings you’d expect from this Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts property, including one of Italy’s best restaurants, the three-Michelin-starred, La Pergola. Interiors are typically Italian, with acres of marble, chandeliers, elaborate wall paintings and a museum-quality art collection and all of the 345 spacious guestrooms feature balconies. Resort amenities include four swimming pools, five restaurants and bars, a palatial spa with a Turkish bath and two Davis Cup clay tennis courts.

In the Area

The hotel is a good 30-minute taxi ride (or free shuttle) to the city center for Rome’s classic sights including the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Pantheon. Stroll across the Tiber to Trastevere, arguably Rome’s loveliest pedestrian district; it’s home to the famed Porta Portese flea market, some the city’s best traditional thin crust pizza joints, and the hypermodern Glass Hostaria (try the chestnut tagliatelle). And don’t miss a peek at La Bocca della Verita (The Mouth of Truth), featured in the classic 1953 Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday.

Hotel is adequate
Reviewed 2 days ago

Rome, as city is wonderful. Hotel is adequate but be sure the room is good & front. Our room is far back of a combined branchs of korridors. And very noisy because of the night bar/disco at weekend. Room is always clean and tight, always have hot water on tub. It is a old building so that room has a classic decoration even the parquettes that we step has squeaks.

Hotel Manager is Dishonest

This will be our families last stay at the Rome Cavalieri. This hotel absolutely dislikes Americans using Hilton Points to stay at their hotel - we had this feeling last time we were here but this time it was made perfectly clear. We booked multiple rooms using 150,000 points per room per night and were told at check in, in no uncertain terms, that only one room got a 'free breakfast' and there was no "lounge" for Honors Members to use. Instead they have a 'club' that only certain types of rooms can use. We had stayed at this hotel a few years ago and they did have a Hilton Lounge located near the pool, away from the 'club' reserved only for their elite clientele. We were then told by the Manger that the website had the proper information and we were mistaken because the Hilton Lounge was removed "a few years ago". We checked website again, it clearly stated the Cavalieri did have a Honors lounge so we brought our computer back to the registration area where the Manager 'was no longer available'. The unlucky 2 women who were helping us were then honest enough to tell us that "this was a common complaint by Americans, the hotel had reported this error in Hilton website and they have been waiting for a correction". Apparently they have been waiting 'a few years' to provide the correct information to their most loyal customers - THE AMERICANS WHO FAITHFULLY STAY AT HILTONS. We are Diamond members with nearly 2 million points who were told "Hilton has changed their policies and only 1 room was allowed any Honors rewards at any Hilton property worldwide" - multiple times. The Manager knowingly lied to us and then refused to speak with us again when we returned with proof on their website that stated the hotel did have a Hilton Honors lounge . We are now at the Hilton Florence Metropole which welcomes Americans, provides a lounge for everyone to use, volunteered breakfast for all of us, and we received a small gift for each room "as a thank you for your loyalty". We will never stay at the Cavalieri again since it is clear they have different rules than any Hilton Property we have ever stayed at for the 'non-revenue' Americans who are there on vacation with their families. They simply believe Americans are not good enough to stay their hotel and don't want us to be there. There is a reason the 'elite hotel' is rated about 80th in Rome.

I have stayed at the Waldorf in the US and received exceptional service. I was hoping to receive that same service from
The Waldorf in Rome. This hotel fell short of providing exceptional customers service. The front reception fell short of delivering what I am accustom to.

In a peaceful setting on a hill with a unique view of the city and St. Peter resides the Cavalieri Hilton, a true luxury Hotel where you can enjoy an outstanding service, nicely decorated rooms, quiet and very clean, as well as outstanding food and a great indoor and outdoor pool and a spa.
They realy focus on what you as a guest needs:Service!

It’s exceptional. The staff are amazing and they care about the little things. It’s got an ancient glitz without being stuffy and while I was here on conference, I’d love to go back wth family. I love a boutique but think if you go to an old dame of a city like Rome then stay in an old fashioned hotel like here. You’ll truly feel like you’re in Rome.
