We were so lucky to have booked this lovely hotel. We were on the 4th floor with the most beautiful view of Palatine Hill and with the added bonus of a small balcony we could not have asked for anything better. The air conditioning was very welcome too. We had a double sofa bed in one room a lovely living... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay with 3 friends. On arrival at the hotel, the transfer bus was not able to drive us to the door but it was a very short walk down to the hotel. The entrance was lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a bedroom with a double bed, a living... More

We had a two bedroom apartment for 5 (2 adults and 3 children 14,12 & 10). Apartment was spacious enough for our family for Roman standard. My youngest had to sleep on the two seater couch as the double sofabed was not big enough for two kids (one of them kicked in sleep). Everything else about this Palazzo al Velabro... More

This hotel was located very close to the Coliseum and Palatine Hill (Roman ruins). It s slight trek to central Rome where you will find more restaurants, so if you are not inclined for a 15 min walk into the restaurant area then you might find this inconvenient. However, you will be close to many attractions and it is nice... More

This hotel was a disappointment. The hotel lacked any charm and even the renovated rooms were not well done., the doors stuck and there were paint spots splattered on the bathroom tile. One of the few hotels we stayed at that charged for wifi. Though close to the ancient sites, you are pretty far away from any access point. I... More

This hotel is just behind the forum and the Capitole hill which makes it perfect to visit the city by foot. It's also close to the metro. People there were very kind and professional. The room was nice and very large, although when we go back we'll definitely go for one of the rooms with a balcony because they have... More

The Palazzo Al Velabro, where I have been staying on and off for the past 12 years has one of the best locations in Rome for walking, and is tremendously quiet (in a sometimes noisy city). The suites are large, comfortable and feature everything any traveler could ask for. That said, they are running down, with scuffed walls etc. Further,... More

I'll start by saying, the staff is amazing and breakfast was fantastic. It was kind of hard for us to find since we were self - navigating and took the subway from the train station. It was probably a 10 minute walk from the subway station and the building had a very small metal sign so we almost passed it... More

We stayed in the two bedroom appartment for five nights over Easter. Lovely hotel with good facilities in an excellent location for central Rome and ancient Rome. Breakfasts were great. Staff very obliging and helpful . Some minor refurbishment and updating required eg around lifts. Appartments should really have kettles in but then we didnt ask Dont reserve a taxi... More

Thank you again the staff at Palazzo al Velabro for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The spacious apartment right beside the weekend market was beautiful. An incredible view of the Palatine hill was stunning. We always feel at home at the Velabro !
