We stayed in Rome from July 7-July 10. We had previously been in Venice and Florence.

We stayed at the Hotel Bernini Bristol following a Mediterranean cruise. We had payed a significant surcharge for a centrally located five star hotel. The room was excellent, clean, well equipped, very comfortable bed and a small terrace. Free Wifi was also very welcome as most hotels still seem to sting you for this as an extra. It was looking...

Beautifully appointed spaces and great location BUT concierge and doorman were rude. We experienced this ourselves and noticed it with others. Elevator was broken leaving only one elevator to serve entire hotel. Other staff were helpful. When weighing cost versus benefits, this hotel does NOT fill the bill. We had a miserable experience.

AN HOTEL IN LOVE WITH ARTLooking out from the windows of the Hotel Bernini Bristol what you see is an open-air museum. 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.
