We loved everything about our 6 night stay at Relais Maddalena. The location in the heart of 'old' Rome is OUTSTANDING with close proximity to many wonderful landmarks like the Pantheon. Our room was extremely well appointed, comfortable and the view over the piazza, was magical. Francesco, the owner, was very helpful and friendly and gave us many tips for... More

I stayed 10 nights end of May, first week of June at the Relais Maddalena. It is a charming hotel, beautifully and interestingly decorated My room overlooked the Piazza Maddalena and the Pantheon about a block away and I enjoyed watching all the activity in the evenings. Everything quieted down by 11:00pm, but it wasn't really loud and I could... More

Perfect location - one block from the Pantheon and walking distance to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. Front desk was very helpful - and arranged our car to the airport the next morning. Should be told to get into the hotel - you need to buzz at the odd green door. Fortunately, people were leaving when we were arriving.... More

Awful experience so please stay elsewhere! My family are here in Rome on 7th August so its hot. The aircon unit in our bedroom is almost totally ineffective yet makes lots of noise such that after returning to our room in the evening, even after one hour the temperature was still over 28 degrees and so impossible to sleep. The... More

Dear Guest, we read your review and believe that its content is for most part libelous and untruthful. This is unacceptable. We are certainly not an "hotel from Hell" like you write and confirm you once again that the air conditioning worked just fine all day and night except for the small period of time after you got back from...

Was very worried when we arrived at a huge green door and after pressing the door bell entered a very unimpressive hallway with no indication of hotel reception. One flight of stairs later we met Selena in a very pretty reception area. This was one of our best stays ever in a hotel. Tastefully, spaciously decorated modern rooms in a... More

We stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon and this place is the perfect charming Italian boutique hotel as everyone raves about on Hotels.com and TripAdvisor. Shortly after my reservation, the hotel emailed to see if there was anything more we needed, including a car from the airport. We mentioned it was our honeymoon, so they offered a... More

My wife and I recently spent 4 magnificent nights in this small, boutique hotel located just 100 metres from the Pantheon. Our Deluxe room was large, well appointed and included a modern bathroom. We had a.nice view of the small square (Piazza della Maddelena) below and a glimpse of the Pantheon. The little piazza was lively late in the afternoon... More

This was our second trip to Rome but the first with our 13 and 10 year old sons. We chose the Relais based on what we had read on Tripadvisor and were definitely not disappointed. From the moment we got there, Francesco welcomed us, got us set up in our room and spent time sharing his insight as to what... More

We stayed at the Relais Maddalena in mid June. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place. We were able to walk almost everywhere! The rooms are modest but functional with completely renovated bathrooms. The breakfasts included a wide variety of meats and cheeses. The views of the square below from the breakfast room were breathtaking. Both managers were awesome... More

If you love small, unique, boutique hotels that are centrally located, this hotel is for you. I'll start with what I liked about this hotel. First, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Before I arrived, they emailed me to see if I wanted to reserve a driver for pick-up at the airport. When you get off your plane exhausted... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relais Maddalena stands right in the middle of everything! This cozy 6 room guest house is the ideal couch for those who love to get to Rome on a weekend for a romantic getaway or a quick tour of the historical centre. We are just 300 feet away from the Pantheon and the location is really convenient if you like to enjoy the beauty of monumental Rome without using the car or public transportation: everything is at hand and can be reached with an easy walk. The rooms are all elegant and functional; you will find hand made upholstery and fine antiques, king size beds and sound proof windows, plus all the comfort of modern technology: air conditioning/heating, minibar, satellite and cable TV, internet connection, safebox and more! Many rooms have a lovely view outside on piazza della Maddalena and on piazza Rondanini, two among the neatest small piazzas of central Rome.We clean the rooms every day and change the linen every 2 days, and towels every time is needed. All our rooms have private bathrooms, which are spacious and comfortable. The staff is helpful and will do nearly anything to make your stay in Rome the most enjoyable. Ciao!. ... more   less
