We stayed for 10 nights in August & could not have asked for a better honeymoon hotel. Ideally located, clean, beautiful, classy and with staff who could not have been more helpful.

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights in the deluxe room with our own little balcony. The room was beautiful and the balcony was a great little touch.

In fact the splendid Piazza Barberini square with the Triton fountain is right in front of the hotel, and the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, Via Veneto and many of Rome’s most exciting shopping streets are all just around the corner.And when you step inside the hotel the link with art continues with the precious 18th-century tapestries and period furnishings. A DELIGHTFUL DILEMMAClassic or modern? At the Hotel Bernini Bristol you can choose the style you prefer from the range of rooms with classical décor or those which a distinctive modern touch. All 127 rooms and suites, some of which have balconies, have some of the best views over the Eternal City. Like the Presidential Suite, which has a huge terrace with a Jacuzzi, a Turkish Bath and a private fitness area, and truly breathtaking views over Rome. ROME AT YOUR FEET The Hotel Bernini Bristol’s Presidential Suite is a comfortable and luxurious oasis overlooking the city. The view, which takes in the Quirinale Palace which is the residence of the Italian President, and St Peter’s, is quite spectacular from the 70-square-meter terrace which has a Jacuzzi and a solarium. The suite is in contemporary style and has a bedroom, a separate living room, a bathroom, and, for fitness buffs, a private gym and Turkish Bath. It also has cutting-edge hi-tech such as wifi both inside the suite and on the terrace, plasma TVs, a DVD payer, fax and cordless telephone. ROME FROM TOP TO TOEIf you would like to see Rome from top to toe then the Bernini Bristol’s terrace is the place! And while you are up there why not enjoy the great food and those spectacular views from the L’Olimpo Roof Garden.
