My husband,daughter and I stayed at the Hotel San Carlo in February and loved it. The rooms were comfortable, staff helpful, and location charming. I highly recommend this hotel. It was one of the nicest we stayed in on our trip to Italy.

Have just returned from a long weekend with a group of friends. Previous to our visit the hotel staff booked the taxi from airport and made bookings for dinner in nearby restaurants. They also advised us that the Rome marathon was taking place that weekend and all tours in the city were cancelled which helped us plan our time more... More

We arrived at the Hotel San Carlo late on a Thursday evening. We had a rental car and had to park 5 blocks away in a public garage. The staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Because of the rapid fall in the euro just prior to our trip we pay US$149/night or the rough equivalent. You would... More

I have stayed at San Carlo four times - with friends, with my partner and also by myself on various holidays to Rome from 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2011. I have always stayed here, as there are a myriad of rooms to choose from. With my two friends, we got a large three bed bedroom with an ensuite and a... More

We stayed here a week in February 2015 and it was great. The room was quiet, breakfast perfect, and the location can not be beat. A few blocks from the Spanish Steps and the Metro stop at Spanga (sp?). Staff was very helpful as well. We thought the beds were a notch above and comfy. In room frig, air con... More

We were on a couples vacation and very glad to choose the small and nice hotel with an excellent service, very good location and perfect breakfast. If you will visit Rome for a short term, and want to enjoy the beauty of city by foot San Carlo Hotel will be an excellent choice to stay. It is very close to... More

We visited Rome via air from Paris (buckle up for an exciting taxi ride from the airport to Rome city center! be sure you only take an approved taxi from the stand). Upon arriving at Hotel San Carlo we were immediately in love. The staff greeted us with open arms (literally) and the bell hop whisked away our luggage with... More

I cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Rome. Everything is just "the best" - staff, location, staff, cleanliness, staff, breakfast, staff and price. As you saw, I mentioned staff a lot. They are the best. Alberto, the manager will do anything to ensure you have a perfect stay. Victoria and Rosanna are also wonderful, as are the rest of the... More

Overwhelmingly wonderful! Wife and I stayed 5 nights. Very clean. Super friendly staff - all of them. One of the most complete and delicious breakfasts served in a delightful fourth floor terrace. Close to the Spanish Stairs Piazza area, excellent food, gelato, bus, subway, visitors bureau, shopping and museums nearby and within easy walks distance. We definitely recommend this hotel,...

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
