There is free wifi in the lobby. Only down fall is its location. Located close to the metro, but its a... More

This hotel looks absolutely fantastic on the outside. They have also clearly spent a lot of time refurbishing the open areas of the hotel. The rooms are basic but adequate for a city break. I only had 2 complaints whilst staying, the breakfast was somewhat limited and as other people have mentioned, the beds need replacing. Both myself and my... More

The Church Palace hotel (or previously known as Domus Mariae Palazzo Carpegna) is an absolutely beautiful hotel! We spent 3 nights there and found it to be an amazing location with beautiful gardens, large rooms with high ceilings, beautiful decor and very easy to get to from the Metro. We also found a couple of lovely restaurants nearby (since the... More

We have recently spent three nights at the Church Palace hotel and after reading through the reviews were a little anxious as to what to expect. Firstly we were amazed with the gardens in front of the hotel and its quiet location. It was 10 minutes walk from the metro - cornelia, turning right at the mcdonalds on the corner,... More

Spent 3 nights here with my wife for our first trip to Rome. This is a beautiful building set amongst its own grounds and is accessed via a small tree lined private road, which feels very grande. The Cornelia Metro is a 2 minute walk so this is a very well situated hotel. The airport access is very good. The... More

I would highly recommend this hotel! We arrived very late at 1.30am and there was someone waiting to check us in. The room was a good size and clean. Bathroom also clean and well maintained. All the staff members were very pleasant. I would say this hotel is a very safe bet very close to the vatican and also not... More

Read a few mixed reviews about this hotel before I booked it, and having returned from our short stay the overall impression is excellent. Arrived mid afternoon in a taxi and the hotel is situated at the end of a long tree lined drive. The hotel itself is quite an imposing building, and inside with high ceilings. From the start... More

We stayed there about 3 weeks ago for 2 nights. First impression was how lovely. But when we enter our room the side table was dirty. I could hear everything that was happening in the next room. The walls were paper thin. The free wifi was in public areas only but the signal was weak.
