Virtually hidden inside Rome's famous 'Spanish Steps', this small hotel doesn't tout big, due to the fact that it only has four bedrooms, ours being one. The centrality and location is boosted by the hotel having its own restaurant and adjacent wine bar with over 400 lables, making a glass or two of great wine, unavoidable. What we also loved...

Nice location but Internet pictures show images of the Hassler Hotel communal areas etc , so this is a clear case of false advertising. Hassler hotel is 200 meters away and up the Piazza Espagna which is not an easy climb. Breakfast is served on Hassler hotel.....so in my mind Il Palazzetto does not qualify as a hotel. I believe...

We have such fond recollections of our many wonderful stays at Il Palazzetto and have recently returned from yet another marvelous, memorable time spent at this home from home. Exclusively situated overlooking the Spanish Steps, this beautiful 16thcentury palazzo with its four bedrooms provides an elegant and comfortable atmosphere which gave us the sensation of being in a private residence....

You can't beat the location of the Il Palazzetto Hotel as the Spanish Steps are immediately outside your window. Whilst the location is next to one of the busiest spots in Rome, there is virtually no noise intrusion and of course the people watching is always excellent. The hotel is the essence of boutique with only a total four rooms,... More

The perfect spot in Rome to stay , in a magnificent location, with all the ammenities of the storied Hassler Hotel. The service is outstanding - a mixture of warmth and informative. Rooms lovely and a good size for an European hotel. Look forward to our return!

This boutique hotel is in a building near "the steps". It is a perfect location for people watching and near a metro as well as near taxis. There is outstanding shopping nearby and the area abounds with excellent restaurants. Plus you are minutes away from popping down to the Piazza de Popollo to view the Caravaggio in the church --...

I have been to the Palazzetto few times and I have to say it is my favourite place in Rome. The building is stunning and in the best location in Rome, only few rooms tastefully decorated and the view is stunning. The staff is absolutely fantastic, always kind and up to a nice chat. A special thanks to Daniela, Monica... More

A tiny boutique hotel, owner looking the Spanish Steps has only 4 special rooms. A beautiful breakfast is only a 5 minute walk away at the fabulous Hassler Hotel..,connected with It. The staff is helpful and polite, the breakfasts Devine, location first rate. I was spoiled.

With only a few rooms, this chic, upscale boutique is private and intimate with fabulous interiors and bedding. We visited in April before the air-conditioning had been turned on, so we left the window open at night to stay cool. Unfortunately, the noise from the party people cruising by late night kept me up until 2:00 am at which point... More

Enjoyed every moment. Small boutique hotel. Only three rooms. Stylish decorated. Guests can use the facilities of Hassler Hotel. Very friendly staff at the reception. Made you feel very much a welcome guest. Thanks. Excellent location to shop until you drop. Will certainly return.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
