“Perfect Hotel Right at The Pantheon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

A classy, clean and helpful hotel in the very heart of Rome. My sister and I shared a 3rd floor room looking out on The Pantheon. The staff was gracious, very helpful, and many with a pleasant sense of humor. The continental breakfast was yummy in the mornings, and starting in April, the 7th floor rooftop terrace offers a great view to sip a glass of wine and recover from a day's activity. My favorite hotel during my trip to Italy!

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise, ask for a room on the 3rd floor or higher given the hotel is on a bus...

Picked this hotel from the reviews on Tripadvisor and I was not disappointed. We had the Junior Suite/Appartment. As said in other reviews, this room doesn't look over the Piazza della Rotonda, but that didn't matter, it was very quiet and had everything that we needed and was certainly big enough for three adults.

The staff were so helpful, the location was amazing, I will return and maybe even treat myself to the Senior Suite.

Stayed three nights April 3, 2013 to April 6, 2013. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating, including room changes at the last minute as our family group numbers changed. Rooms were nicely decorated and very up to date, although small (as expected). Location is amazing. Front rooms have gorgeous direct view of the Pantheon.

Stayed in the stunning Albergo del Senato last weekend for 3 nights. I booked the Hotel on the strength of the reviews on Tripadvisor and also the location. I was a bit dubious that the Hotel was rated as 3* as for a similar price, there were plenty of 5* hotels available.
The front of the building is understated with no big signs to advertise its existence. After a very warm welcome at check in, we went up to our room. I had ordered a bottle of Prosecco on arrival - this was chilling on ice in our room on the 4th floor. We opened the shutters to reveal the most stunning view I have ever had in a City Centre hotel anywhere. Our room overlooked the Pantheon and the Piazza della Rotonda. The room gets the sun in the afternoon and evening and so with the windows open you get to enjoy the sun, the atmosphere in the Piazza and watch the world go by but with the windows closed at night, you can not hear a thing. The room was very well appointed with a mini bar and all sorts of goodies in the bathroom. The room wasn't huge, but then we didn't spend a huge amount of time inside with all that culture on the doorstep! There was more than enough storage for all our clothes.
The continental breakfast was excellent with a good range of cold meats, breads, fruit, cereals and pastries. The service was super efficient.
In the 3 days, we walked everywhere. The main sights - Coloseum, Vatican, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and Spanish Steps are all within about a 15 to 20 minute walk (if you can read a map!). No need for public transport at all. Although, on our last day, we did take the Metro to the Basilica Sao Paulo (well worth a visit).
I know people have mentioned the Front Desk and Housekeeping Staff in their reviews - but they deserve a mention. The service is exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble - from giving restaurant recommendations and booking tables to booking airport transfers to moving and storing luggage on check-out day.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel. Not the cheapest, but then when in Rome...

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room overlooking the Piazza and the Pantheon.

We've been there 5 times. Very friendly and helpful staff. Immaculate facilities. Unbeatable location steps from the Pantheon. Roof top bar a must with terrific view of Pantheon and surrounding area. Great restrauants nearby. Its not cheap but the quality is worth it.

We recently stayed at Albergo del Senato for 3 nights while in Roma. As so many have indicated, the location--in the shadow of the Pantheon--is quite good. You are just a 5 minute walk to Piazza Navona and all that has to offer. But go past Piazza Navona, up into the little neighborhood streets and there are some lovely restaurants there - a real neighborhood feel. The hotel was very clean - our room, as well as the common areas. The staff that we encountered were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was substantial and varied and served buffet-style in the lovely dining room which was adjacent to the lobby. There is a great roof-top garden with wonderful views of the area and serves as a good spot to enjoy the sun, the stars, a glass of wine, or a morning cup of coffee. Our room was cleaned and the bathroom kept sparking every day we were there. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at Albergo del Senato. When considering what type/location of room you would like, keep the noise level in mind. We were there in early April so we did not require air-conditioning. It was great to be able to have our window open for fresh air, but the open window also let in the noises, chatter, and motor scooters down below...and this went on until the wee hours of the morning. Our room did not overlook the square in front of our hotel - our room was on the side of the hotel, yet the noise did filter over there. The location of Albergo del Senato is very convenient to walking to so many destinations - the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona - all of these are just an easy 5-10 minute walk. We also walked to the Jewish Ghetto (very moving location), as well as Trastevere which is a lovely little neighborhood located in Roma, just across the river. To sum it up - we were quite pleased with our experience at Albergo del Senato and recommend it without hesitation.

Room Tip: Consider whether you can sleep through the noise below.

This is simply one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in; not overly luxurious but everything perfectly judged. The staff (we mostly saw Luciano and Alessandra) are very friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Our room (on the third floor) was large, clean, had a very comfortable bed and a great bathroom, and of course a wonderful view of the Pantheon. The piazza is very lively but the double glazing cuts all the noise. Breakfast, in the elegant breakfast room, was delicious and the service was excellent. We are quite hard to please but we did not have a single complaint. The location is perfect and you can easily walk to all the major sights from the hotel. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Rome and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Do book a room with a view of the Pantheon. The rooms on the first floor have smaller windows.
