“A very nice Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We stayed in the Beau Site Residenza for three nights in June this year (2013). We were a little apprehensive at first because the lack of a reception on the ground floor but Fabrizio gave us a warm welcome and immediately put us at ease. Our room was a good size and was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. The hotel is very well located, very close to the Spanish steps and also not far at all from the Trevi fountain. We also walked back from a trip to the Colosseum although it did take around 30 minutes. The hotel is also situated in an expensive area where most of the hotels are a great deal more expensive so I would say that all things considered it is really good value for money. At breakfast time on the second day, we also met Linda who was a very pleasant and charming young lady who was also very helpful and friendly. The only slightly negative thing was that the Continental breakfast was not particularly inspiring and could be improved but even so, I would not hesitate to recommend Beau Site for a sightseeing trip to Rome. Simon & Mila.

Room Tip: Ask for the best available room.

We stayed 4 nights in June 2013. Linda & Fabrizio were extremely welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a deluxe room (although paid for standard, thanks!). The room & bathroom were SPOTLESS! Bed was really comfy and all necessities provided. We had a bath which was heaven after a long day sightseeing. The mini bar prices were extremely reasonable. Breakfast was reasonable and there was the option to order some hot food if needed. The hotel is 5 minutes from the top of the Spanish Steps. The sightseeing buses stop just across the road and we walked to the colloseum one night. The location was perfect for us. We had a wonderful stay at the Beau Site and would thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a very comfortable, clean, friendly and boutique stay in Rome!

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at the Beau Site. Linda and Fabrizio were wonderful hosts. They were welcoming, respectful and responsive to our needs. The room was charming. What it lacked in size it made up in charm. It was bright, clean and comfortable. What I found remarkable was how conveniently located it was. We were a five minute walk to great restaurant, the Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain and the metro. I was concerned that we were to far from the places we wanted to see, but Fabrizio explained how to use the Metro and it was a breeze.

It is clear that Linda and Fabrizio are pouring themselves into this small boutique hotel, and for this our experience in Rome was made that much better.

Thank you both,

Mark and Len

I recommend this hotel, we had a great stay, Fabrizio and Linda (the owners) were very friendly and helpful. The new hotel suites were very comfortable and private. We felt like we had our own apartment in a very quiet and luxurious area in Rome! Thank u guys for everything, you made our first trip to Italy easier.

Very friendly, great (small) rooms, fantastic location.
Safe and secure.
Could do with a less 'cautious' approach to replenishing toileteries and breakfast. All false economy really. Real fruit juice and fruit salad as opposed to 'juice drink' and tinned fruits would be an improvement, as would help yourself coffee. Fresh fruit was avaialble and croissants were reasonable.
Good overall, breakfast could easily be massively improved.

Room Tip: Some are a bit close too reception and you can here the phone, door bell, and rustling of paper.

Dear Guest,

Thanks for reviewing our Hotel.

However, I don’t think I understand what you mean by “false economy”.
As we give so much to our guests in terms of service, I find this expression very inappropriate and disrespectful of our staff’s hard work.
Our housekeeperchange dirty toiletries every day if: toileters are dirty, if she find toileters on the floor or unless our guests clearly ask, or, in any case, every two days. If the toileters are clean and just umid, she don’t change it but she set it up to make it dry.
Coffee is served anytime by who’s taking care of breakfast, and we have also fresh fruit on our buffet. I would call it “unlimited service”, instead of “false economy”.
“Economy” might be the service provided by a simple B&B. We are a Boutique Hotel, so it’s different.

Thank you

My husband and I and two other couples spent several nights at Beau Site in April before catching a cruise that left from Rome. Beau Site was a charming place to stay, quite convenient to most of the touristy places we wanted to visit and we couldn't have asked for a nicer staff in Linda, Fabrizio and Paulo. The first two days we were there they even made up nice little breakfast bags for us since we needed to be out the door so early in the morning for our tours that breakfast was not ready to be served. However when we got the "real" breakfast finally we realized that we had missed an even nicer experience--the breakfast was lovely!! We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone we knew who was visiting Rome

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A unique place, where the guest is the center of everything, welcomed and pampered from the initial smile to the last goodbye, which always leaves a taste of sweet nostalgia to everyone.This is the daily experience at Beau Site, luxurious Boutique Hotel in Via Ludovisi, an elegant street in the heart of Rome, just a few steps away from the magnificent Villa Borghese, that links Via Veneto, birthplace of La Dolce Vita, to Via Sistina, from which guests will reach in a few minutes the most attractive architectural, historical and artistic sights, such as the stairway of Trinità dei Monti, Piazza di Spagna, Fontana di Trevi, Via del Corso and Piazza Navona. The beautiful building where our Antica Residenza is located was built by the famous family of Roman architects Busiri Vici and came originally with the idea of a private home; then, the tranquility, sophistication and exclusivity of the location suggested the restructuring of a portion of the building, in order to create a jewel of hospitality that could ensure class, privacy and relaxation.The elegant décor, the style of the impeccable service and the comfort of each of the environments create a charming atmoshpere that makes pleasurable and memorable even the shortest stay.The Beau Site is a residence which is historical, but still Hi-Tech: the free WiFi and the iPad, available to our customers, are just some of the small details that contribute to create a balanced union of style and efficiency.In the morning, in the Bow Window room (unique in its genre) the continental breakfast is served on a buffet full of sweet and salted meals, always fresh and accompanied by the best Italian coffee and typical products.A special selection of drinks was made by a Sommelier especially for guests of Beau Site, even the most demanding ones. All is provided by a special service in the Bow Window dining room, or in total discretion in your bedroom.Among the various services offered: LCD satellite TV, free WiFi access, free AirPrint, check-in online for flights, online "jump-the-line" bookings for the Vatican Museums, Colosseum, Borghese Gallery etc., send/receive fax, transfer to/from airports, city guides, bookings for tours, open top bus, personal shopper, car rental.Who’s choosing our Boutique Hotel Beau Site knows what he will find, but never expects what being in this unique place really means, until he discovers by himself, being pleasantly surprised. ... more   less
