Fabulously welcoming staff, a beautiful room and a bar/terrace that was an oasis of 1920's cool. Easy walking distance to Spanish Steps etc. Wifi could do with a bit more signal but everything else was exceptional.

1. Desk clerk Angelica is one of the most unhelpful people I have ever encountered. What part hospitality does she not understand? Every request to upgrade our room (we were willing to pay more to get out of cave) was met with argument and insult. This is not just us being spoiled, our Italian colleague was treated with the same... More

Location is very good, the terrace is a very pleasant. The rooms are ok, a bit worn off, but for the price its ok, the bathroom is too small. All the main shopping streets are within 5-10 minutes of walking time. Overall a good experience

I am still at a loss. This hotel is a disaster. We booked three single rooms with air conditioning for two nights. Were informed after asking multiple times why the temp inside the rooms read 27 degrees Celsius and were told that there is a law in Rome that a/c cannot be turned on until June 2nd. NOT TRUE.

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

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

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.
