This hotel was a great location for us. It's in the trastavere area and as a result is a five minute walk from great restaurants with a great atmosphere which are much cheaper than the centre of Rome. The hotel as other reviews say is a little dated in terms of colours and style, but saying that it's clean and... More

This was our second stay at this Hotel (4 days from 31st May 2014), having stayed here about 4 years ago. We returned here because we really liked the Hotel and location. Just far enough outside the centre of Rome for a bit of peace and quiet after a hectic day at the fabulous sites. Plus it is also walkable... More

Stayed here 1 night May2014. Booked online very easily and received clear confirmation, with payment being taken at check out, rather than in advance which is unusual now. And better. Anyway, the hotel location is really great on top of the Gianicolo Hill and walkable to the Vatican, through public parks, etc. It's a very scenic spot right next to... More

Four friends, in Tivoli, on our way to Rome. We didn't know where we would stay. We stopped at the tourist information office and inquired. The agent was more than gracious; he was truly concerned and helpful. He phoned around, and finally came up with the Grand Hotel del Gianicolo, with a great view of St. Peter's and the Vatican....

The location of this hotel was perfect for our group of 8 (4 couples) to visit The Vatican & St. Peter`s Square, as well as taking public transit to The Colosseum and other historical sites. The hotel itself was nice, but as is typical with some older European hotels, walls are paper thin and you can hear everything. Most rooms... More

Hotel del Gianicolo was good for a hotel away from the busyness of Rome. Still a 10-15 minute walk from most bars and restaurants in the Trastevere district. Greetings at the hotel were great with a bell boy taking our luggage up to our room, only issue was we walked into an occupied room. Thankfully, 5-10 minutes later, we had... More

A brusque greeting at reception on arrival where passports were demanded and room key was despatched without hint of interest suggested evenings may not be the hotel's receptionist's best time. Such things as directions to our room, breakfast location and times, access to wifi, public transport information, were all absent from the introduction to the hotel. But, after a hard... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast was basic, included in the cost, but very good quality. I wouldn't eat dinner at the hotel. Maybe the chef was on leave the night we ate in but the quality was poor. A swimming pool is a feature which we didn't use because it was winter but unique in Rome in summer... More

A mixed offering here, really nice setting, decent sized rooms, good breakfast and great pool but the decor of the place is somewhat overwhelming. A deep dirty green dominates the hallways and the finishings are well in need of an upgrade. Still we really enjoyed our stay and after an intense period of sight seeing specifically searched for a pool... More

Staying in Monteverde

Neighborhood Profile
Monteverde
Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is Rome’s popular "getaway" neighborhood, coveted for its greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa Pamphili, is the area's centerpiece with affordable prices and peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far enough away from the center to feel like you’re on a Roman holiday and close enough to feel the lure of Rome's chaos. Though its downside is the lack of scheduled public transport, this family-oriented area is literally a well-deserved walk in the park.
