Central location. Desk staff is friendly enough, but breakfast staff could use some training in customer care. Good breakfast, however breakfast staff's behavior is somewhat abrupt, with much clattering/noise of dishes, silverware, etc. Hard to get breakfast staff's attention for requests.

The hotel looks much better on internet then in real. Reception staff is moody, but not rude. Rooms are very tiny and sober. Be careful not to hit your toes or fall from the small stairs opening your door. Breakfast is okay. Location is very good though. That makes up for the rooms.

this hotel was in the perfect ovation and the staff was very friendly. The rooms are quite small but you don't need anything big when your out traveling all day. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and definitely try S. Anna because their food is amazing! When we return to Rome we will most definitely stay here again!

Great staff and perfect location, location, location in the heart of Rome. Massimo, Eugenio and other staff were very helpful in all regards. Very close to what we wanted to see, Campo de Fiori, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Largo Argentina, etc. Decent breakfast, also close to several restaurants we wanted to visit. We wish our three days could've been three months.... More

The hotel is very well situated, the reception staff could be more friendly and polite. After cleaning the room my earrings disappeared from the bedtable. The staff replied - never saw. I was on business trip and left the earrings there to wear in the evening. UNfortunately the maid decided they fit her better. Robbers clean the rooms at this... More

As countless others have pointed out in other reviews, the Hotel Smeraldo and its annex (Dipendenza) are located in an absolutely wonderful area of historic central Rome, within very easy walking distance of many significant tourist sites, including the very atmospheric Campo dei Fiori. The properties are extremely clean, with very modern bathrooms, air conditioning and flat screen TVs. Rooms... More

The rooms were adequately sized, but they were a little warm. My roommate and I kept our window open (in January!). The beds were a little uncomfortable, but after spending all day exploring the Eternal City, I didn't really care all that much. Small, cramped bathrooms. Bedroom and bathroom always seemed clean. Wonderful location: right next to the Camp di... More

Well there is free wifi and free continental breakfast with cafe americano, hot tea, juices, milk, pastries that are to die for, cereals and yogurts. The rooms are tiny and so are the bathrooms as other reviewers have said. I excepted tiny but this is the bare minimum in size. The AC was loud but since it is fall now... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Smeraldo for 2 nights. It was an excellent location, we were able to walk to many of the sights we wanted to see, the Vatican City is a little far, though. the hotel was clean and the breakfast was good. The long haired night guy was a little grouchy.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
