We booked this Hotel through Secret Escapes so we were lucky to get a great price on it. Upon arrival it can seem a bit uninviting as there are no clear directions on where to go to check in!! but we found the reception on the second floor where Alessias? I think, gave us a warm welcome and showed us... More

Fantastically located little piece of heaven in the eternal city of Rome! Easy access to all major tourist attractions and the service we received from the team at the hotel, particularly Rebol was superb! We will definately be back and will recomend to all our friends as an excellent place to stay.

This hotel was a little gem. Yes the entrance is a bit stranger, but the building is beautiful and right on the river. The room was SO clean and big and had very high ceilings which I loved. It was also super quiet and very modern. It was sort of like having an apartment experience, while still having the convenience... More

I am having a lovely time at this hotel. The executive suite we are staying in is beautifully decorated, It is well maintained and very clean. Breakfast is very good. I have to say that the Wi-Fi connection is fast enough and steady. Having lived in Rome for many years, problems with broadband connection would tend to be beyond the... More

We stayed at Lux on the River for 3 nights and had a great trip to Rome in general. Overall the hotel experience was pretty decent although they fall just short in my opinion of being able to call themselves Luxury on the River. I should make it clear, to get the best out of this accommodation, it should not... More

I wouldn't recommend staying at Luxury on the River. We chose it as our main criteria was that we needed internet access (my husband needed a connection to be able to work). We also opted for a 'junior suite' so that we'd have more space. The day we checked in, the wifi connection was unusable. And the 'junior suite' was... More

Had a lovely three day break. Accomodation clean and as described, staff very helpful and friendly. Allowed us to leave luggage on last day and supplied us with umbrella due to heavy rain. Breakfast ideal. Good location about ten minutes walk from Lepanto metro. Fifteen minute walk from Vatican and twenty minutes Trevi fountain. At back of hotel nice authentic... More

The hotel is nice inside an old building in front of the river. It is closed to piazza di spagna and other important monuments. Rooms are nice but they could be better! Breakfast is good, not a wide range of choice but it is enough! Nice to go!

We were looking for a place to stay near the centre of Rome to celebrate our honeymoon. Because of our flight schedule we would arrive after 19.00 pm. This wasn't a problem they said. Some miscommunication made us wait on the sidewalk in front of a closed door for almost 1 hour. The room was too small (especially the bathroom)... More

We had a small but very lovely hotel room with a loft and balcony, straight out of a modern home magazine! Great service; thumbs up to Alessio, Cecille, Rodel and the lady duty manager (?) on 9June2014. Reasonably close to The Vatican, Rome Termini and Metro stations. Will definitely recommend to everybody. Ciao...
