We spent four nights at this hotel and it was wonderful. The location is great ( very busy area although hotel on quiet street) and we found the room lovely, clean, quiet and the staff extremely warm and courteous. The breakfast on the rooftop each morning was terrific. The bathroom is a bit tight but beautiful. We were traveling with... More

This place has some of the best staff I have ever encountered in any hotel (and I've stayed in The Peninsula in Tokyo, various Ritz-Carltons, and a smattering for Four Seasons). Dante is a gem and I hope the owners understand what they have in them. The rest of the staff is first-rate too. The double rooms were sizable. The... More

WE spent 3 days at the Hotel San Carlo in May. The rooms were spacious, the staff helpful, the breakfast expansive and situated on a pretty covered outdoor balcony. The location is excellent with very little street noise, metro (which we didn't use) close by, and easy walking distance to many sights.This is a tourist area and the restaurant prices... More

Hotel San Carlo is a wonderful hotel close to the Spanish Steps and close to the Metro. The staff was exceptional from the desk clerk, bellman and chambermaid. The rooftop breakfast area was beautifully decorated with white tablecloths and flowers galore. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms updated. If you get a chance to stay here you will love...

Hotel San Carlo exceeded all our expectations! It had a lovely atmosphere, friendly and personal. It's location is perfect for sightseeing in Rome. A three minute walk from The Spanish Steps, and hence easy walking distance from all the sights! It's also very near the metro. Spanga station is about a three minute walk away. There are lots of lovely... More

I visited Rome for the first time and loved the location of Hotel San Carlo. 2 mins from Spanish Steps, Metro and loads of street cafes, this is what I dreamt Rome to be. Cobblestone Street leads to small foyer. Helpful reception and lovely porter helped cart my massive bag up to my room. Small room but adequate, comfy double... More

We have stayed at this hotel many, many times and it is always terrific. What makes it so nice is there is always the same staff to greet you and make sure everything is just right. Manager, Alberto, Victoria, Rosanna and Dante - who zips around like a teenager (he is not!!) are all so wonderful. The staff could not... More

Great stay at the San Carlo!. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great location near the Spanish Steps- close to shopping, dining, metro and sights. Continental buffet breakfast was more than adequate and the coffee was delightfully served by Dante. Rooms were a typical European size, spotlessly clean, and a few had terraces. Streets surrounding the hotel are very busy during... More

I can only agree to what others have said. nice rooms, quiet but central location, very friendly staff pointing you to restaurants frequented by locals and steering you away from tourist traps. I would always come back

First let me say I've debated writing a review about Hotel San Carlo at all. This is one of the little secrets in Roma that travel agent and tour guides use. If too many people find out then we're likely to not find availability. We've stayed there twice. Once in the annex (room for about 50 euro less) once in... More
