We spent 10 very comfortable nights here. The location can't be beat. We loved the proximity to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. And, the major bus stop of Largo Argentina is just 5 minutes away. Staff are very personable and are fairly comfortable speaking and understanding English. They were always able to assist us: making restaurant reservations, calling... More

Going to Italy in August is probably not the best idea. In fact, it's probably the worst. Italy doesn't really operate in August. Everyone goes away and leaves you to it. Which is fine, because excluding a minor incident with a schizophrenic Segway at Villa Borghese, nothing bad happened and we didn't require any non-existant emergency treatment in a hospital... More

This hotel is in a great location for exploring. Easy to find from Spanish steps. Doesn't have any sign except for on door so look carefully. The staff was helpful and rooms very clean. A little small but you are not often in it. Breakfast was lovely on roof terrace. Would definitely recommend. There are some negative comments on this... More

We stayed at the Relais Orso for 3 nights Sept 2014. The hotel is small, very charming and well located for exploring central Rome. The rooms are small but comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay aside from 2 'water related' issues. On the night we arrived we discovered the bath plug was inoperable and the tub would not drain.... More

I took my boyfriend for his birthday to Relais Orso and as we paid a high price I expected it to be high quality. Unfortunately the negatives out weighed the positives and have left us with a poor view of this hotel. When we went in June the roof bar was also closed and a lot of the areas are... More

Great location in Rome but nothing else appeared as advertised. The roof bar with promised great views was never open. We paid for a room with two beds and got one. (The RO blames American Express for bad information. AE blames RO. Neither has done anything to compensate us.) I fell at the bottom of the dimly lighted stairs into... More

Visited here in the winter- location is perfect for seeing all of the highlights in Rome! Rooms were modern and clean. Shower in the room was exposed to bedroom, but ok for couples. Staff was fantastic. This really is a fantastic place, the location near piazza navona is amazing!

The location of this hotel is excellent. Close to Piazza Navona, it was the perfect base from which to explore Rome. The front desk staff were very friendly and gave good advice. Our room, a junior suite, was very comfortable, clean and quiet.

We had three very comfortable nights at Relais Orso in July 2014. We had a nice room with jacuzzi. Small but equipped with everything we needed. Nice design, very clean, good wifi. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We received a list with excellent restaurant and bar recommendations. The location close to the Piazza Navona is great. Breakfast was good.... More

We had an excellent one night stay at Relais Orso. Upon entering our room we were blown away by the smart design. Our room was small, but efficient, the shower was essentially in the main room and there was a separate bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and a true king bed (a rarity in Europe). The wall decor was... More
