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

I assumed going to art deco roomand therefore payed a bit more than average hotel prices in this area. But to my huge disappointment there was nothing art deco in my single room. Really basic and worn-out room. Photoes in the hotel's website are completely something else. Breakfast in outside terrace would have been nice withour the consruction work in... More

GREAT LOCATION: The Hotel Locarno is very conveniently located near the Plaza del Popolo. It is a great gateway to the Spanish Steps, Coliseum and its adjacent areas. It was also within walking distance to Vatican City and the Sistine chapel on the other side of the river. LOUNGE & BREAKFAST: the lounge and breakfast were both wonderful. The breakfast... More

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

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.
