I stayed here on my own for one night and two nights as part of a tour. Staff were wonderful. Very helpful and assisting in changing rooms to begin the tour. On the outside the hotel is really nice. A tree lined street leading to the hotel and the lobby and bar areas are very nice. It really looks nice.... More

This hotel looks grand from the outside, and even the public areas are nice, but the rooms are small, shabby and incredibly noisy. The corridors echo so people coming back late wake you up and the walls are wafer thin. I would definitely not recommend this hotel.

We had 4 nights at The Church Palace and all I can say is wow! Pictures do not do it justice, it is beautiful. Was rather quiet during our stay, which meant hotel always peaceful, lots of choice at breakfast etc, which suited us fine. Staff were very friendly, especially concierge Sayoh, who was more than happy to help organise... More

It is a few years since I stayed in Hotel Domus Mariae Carpegna, now following major refurbishment renamed Church Palace. It is still an impressive old building with grand public areas, large corridors, reflecting it's history as a seminary. The refurbishments have enhanced the public areas, with some bold decor and striking lighting. It is comfortable and spacious, and well... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as a part of a tour. The hotel itself was stunning! The rooms were big. There was a wide variety of cakes available for breakfast and amazing scrambled eggs! The location is quite a distance from the city centre but it was only a couple of train stops away. It was about a 10min... More

Not quite central to everything but within easy access to public transport. We had 10 people in our group so it wasn't easy to get into a lot of places for food or coffee as there weren't very many places big enough to accommodate us! Good choice for breakfast in a nice big dining room. Comfortable beds and nice rooms

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
