This was our first trip to Rome and indeed first stay at the Locarno. We had wanted to stay there for a while, our aspirations to do so were fanned by a picture we had seen of one of the Locarno bikes in the street. It is difficult to put into words how this place makes you feel, how the... More

I have stayed all over Italy and numerous hotels in Rome, and this hotel is by far the worst. From the rude front desk staff, pitiful service in the restaurant/lounge, to the small, hot, cramped rooms this is an overpriced hotel to avoid. Unless you consider watching the ceiling leak as you eat dinner, charm is not something this hotel... More

The Hotel Locarno has helped me realize a daydream: to temporarily transport myself from Los Angeles to the eternal city, Rome. I've enjoyed two wonderful weeks in Rome, in a comfy economy room, at a luxury hotel near the Piazza Popolo. The sumptuous, complimentary breakfasts were available when needed, although most often I preferred to be among the people at... More

Only had breakfast in this hotel which was continental style but nice choice of bread cereals fruit and unlimited coffee of your choice, staff were very friendly and efficient, we made the mistake of having a small coca cola and small beer from the bar which came to 18 Euro's so did not repeat order! (But it is a four... More

Superbly located just behind the magic scenographic square of Piazza del Popolo and the shopping "trident" leading to Via Condotti and Spanish steps. With its unique early 1900 ambience and decor, the Hotel Locarno has been always one of the most discrete and best kept secrete of downtown Rome. Currently under a major restoration, is worth a stay or, at... More

Great Hotel. Loved my room being the Ambassadors suite. Staff were very helpful and polite although on my last visit (being the fifth in total) they seemed a bit off…which may have just been that day or, as I fear, a change in ownership.

Got a really good price on their Ventian Suite and was it worth it! Beautiful Art Nouveau decor in a building adjacent to the main hotel. Wonderfully quiet just off the Piazza de Poppolo. Our room had a marble bathroom to die for, and beautiful ceilings. The living room was huge, with beautiful touches. Of the hotel itself, the service... More

This traditional Art Deco style hotel is smack bang in the middle of where you want to be - Via del Corso, Condotti, Spanish Steps and piazza di popolo with a 5 minute walk. All very convenient for tram, trains etc. It's not a modern hotel but the rooms are clean, breakfast is included and free wifi access. Hotel staff... More

This was our third stay at the Locarno. They arranged a taxi to pick us up at the airport (50 Euros). It was worth it, as the hotel is about a 30 minute drive. We were disappointed with our first room. Our lovely concierge, Barbara, arranged for us to view several rooms in the other building. We were thrilled with... More

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.
