It's not quite central in Rome but the train station is not too far away. We walked back to the hotel at around 11 pm and did not feel unsafe (there's a 24 hour McDonald's around the corner). Rooms are very new, spacious and luxurious feeling. Good wifi coverage for free.

This is a grand hotel!!! The building is truly stunning, the decor inside beautiful. It is a palace!! Lovely clean room, and bathroom. Delicious breakfast in a huge eating room. Free wifi. Only thing that let it down was its location. It's far out of the city. The Metro is within walking distance however. Not a lot is close by.... More

The hotel has a beautiful entrance and lobby.Their private parking is excellent.Rooms are pretty small and the need to be more clean. The hotel doesn't have room service. The dinner room is amazing and the food is wonderful. The hotel is located pretty close to the majority of Roma's attractions as the Vatican's city and Plaza Venezia. The road to... More

My husband treated me to a lovely surprise Christmas in Rome for my 50th birthday and Rome did not disappoint! We stayed at The Church Palace Hotel on the 3rd floor for 3 nights arriving on Christmas Eve. This hotel is a good location for the Metro to get in and out of the city. A Metro ticket costs about...

The exterior and ground floors of this Hotel are lovely, charming and will lull you into a false sense of security. It's not until you reach the actual hotel rooms that you realize this is, in fact, not a palace. We stayed on the 4th floor. There were no outward facing windows, only a skylight that we could not figure... More

Functional hotel about 45 euro taxi ride from airport and 20 euro taxi to centre. Nice entrance and public areas and clean basic rooms. Food was ok. Good place for a business trip or conference but would prefer to be in the centre if on holiday.

Imposing exterior hides the dirty little rooms inside -mine overlooked the bins and was about as clean. My bathroom had nose pickings and a previous guest's foundation smeared across the tiles and lots of hair around the sink which wasn't mine!! Reported to Reception but nothing done until I requested cleaning materials to do it myself when a surly concierge... More

We stayed in the hotel 3 nights begining of October. Convenient to public transportation, near the metro station. The hotel itself is ok. Nice updated lobby but the rooms need work to justify the price. Staff eexcellent and very professional.

Spent 2 nights here before a cruise. Very impressive building and lovely interior. Rooms okay but in need of updating. Very nice and helpful staff. Only 4 stops on the metro to the centre of Rome. We ate in the hotel restaurant which was very atmospheric but the food was very average. Breakfast had lots of choice but far too... More

Finding a decent, affordable, hotel in Rome is generally a bit of a nightmare in my experiance!But The Chuch Palace is a good option! The location (on a main road and outside the city centre) is the ideal if you want to relax and the hotel is close to a metro station At first look,the hotel is pretty impressive! Lobby... More
