All is in the title. The rooms were disappointing to say the least. 2 star rating at best. Antiquated but not in the best sense. No water hot enough to have a shower and shave. Breakfast not really exciting, nor tasty which is a shame in Italy. Just go to the lounge bar which is fab. But go and sleep... More

This would be an ideal place to stay but not for families with small children nor older folk, more for the young and trendy. You do have to specify that you want a room in the hotel and not in the building next door as you wont be able to complaint to a manager when there as there is no... More

We traveled Italy using trains and mostly public transportation. This hotel is near the Flaminio Metro stop, and the Piazza del Popolo, which is the starting point of Rick Steve's "Dolce Vita Stroll". Our experience with the staff was very good, and the rooftop terrace is nice with a view of the trees in the Borghese gardens. The hotel is... More

I have stayed here 4 times. Twice on Business using the hotel as a location for a fashion shoot and twice for pleasure on my way through Italy. The first three times I stayed in what I believe is The Ambassadors Suite. A beautiful room, exquisitely styled with a wonderful balcony that you can watch life go by in its... More

Roof terrace great. Location great, but just a creepy place. Not sure if it was the incredibly rude staff checking in Italian with a colleague whether I was running away without paying (I understood every word) or just the overall bad karma. Breakfast was beyond dreary with plastic ham, miniscule cereal bowls and SO dark. Only good thing about this... More

A Neapolitan neighbor here in New York remembered it for the area, wonderful bar, atmosphere, rooftop views and more. She never stayed there. An experienced traveler, not as to Rome, I grabbed it for the hotel's atmosphere, history, public areas, city neighborhood and ensuing excellent English communication. I was well-prepared for a threadbare place with somewhat palatial features, but loaded... More

After spending a night at this hotel I understand why the ratings here on TripAdvisor are so evenly distributed across the 5 options. The experience largely depends in fact on the room that one is given. In my case the room, although smallish, was big enough for not feeling claustrophobic. I had the chance of having a glance at those... More

Nice. . . not thrilling but nice. Location is very good, the terrace is a very pleasant place to unwind in the evening. The rooms are what I did not find appealing: they are dated and the bathroom, though charming in its intent to conserve original materials, is tight and uncomfortable.

This was my second stay at the Locarno and I enjoyed it once again. This is a charming hotel with a few slightly rundown rooms -- but that was part of the old world charm.. I understand that renovations are under way. The staff at the hotel is as always wonderful and the breakfast is something to look forward to.... More

Totally loved staying here. The old, classic style of the hotel has you stepping into the past of Rome. The Double room I had was perfectly decorated with period wooden tables and dresser was just great. The hotel is ever so close to Piazza Del Popolo and thus all of Rome is in walking distance. I will stay here again.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
