I throughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff is incredibly helpful and gracious. The breakfast and coffee are amazing. Those breakfasts were so substantial and delicious we skipped lunch most days! The hotel is walking distance from the central train station. However, I do not recommend taking your suitcases over cobblestones streets unless you're feeling particularly robust after... More

On our recent trip to Rome, we stayed at the Empire Palace hotel and enjoyed it quite a bit. Our first night, however, was a bit of a letdown, as we checked in late and the room we were given was clearly meant as a single. It was quite small and really only had space enough for one person. We... More

Stayed here for two nights before our Celebrity Cruise and couldn't of been happier. I'm from Miami and a bit picky with high standards. We were on our Honeymoon. The staff was amazing and spoke fluent English which was a HUGE plus. Rooms were pretty roomy and clean. Shower was a bit tight for my giant husband but for me... More

A very nice centrally located hotel. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are a bit on the small side but are very clean and well kept. The building is old but very charming with easy access

Overall I really loved this hotel. The staff was super accommodating and even let us check in at 9:30 because we got off a flight from the US early. Beautiful building and they have a fabulous courtyard which is part of their dining area. English speaking staff made things easy. Great location. We ate in restaurant and it was fabulous.... More

Empire Palace is a lovely small hotel, centrally located in Rome, Italy. The building is very old as is everything in Rome, however, it has been updated with all modern conveniences. The rooms are a little on the small size, but they are VERY clean and comfortable. The staff is wonderful, they speak English and are so helpful getting you... More

The Empire Palace Hotel is a lovely old-fashioned hotel with modern amenities. The housekeeping staff was just about ghostly - we never saw them but their tender ministrations were much appreciated. I love trying new kinds of toiletries and the Empire Palace provides a wonderful group in the musk family. (Normally, I never go near musk- I 'm a flowery... More
