“Great terrace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

We have stayed there twice now. It has a great location and a fabulous terrace for drinks. @ 20 euros a drink its quite pricey
Rooms are very small but was comfortable in the July heat. We are headed back in July 2013 but will be looking elsewhere this time. To pay for wi-fi today isnt acceptable anymore

Stayed July 2012, traveled with family

My husband and I have lodged in the InterContinental de la Ville on two different occasions. The location is fabulous, just by the Spanish Steps. We were there in November 2012. The service was outstanding with many helpful suggestions by both the reception and the concierge. Our lodging included breakfast, which was good, offering many selections, including champagne. We were in an upgraded room with a garden view, lovely. The building has quite a romantic history!

The Intercontinental de la Ville is superbly located right next to the Spanish steps and it's a cozy, well managed IC. As a Royal Ambassador I've been upgraded to a Suite on the last floor (8th) and what a view we've got over the city of room. True that this is an historical old building that could benefit from some refurbishment and it might well be true that non-suite rooms are not of a standard of a suite but who cares for that when you've some great attentive staff, a superb location and a top service? Congratulations to the team and keep up with the excellent work.

Room Tip: If you can afford go for a suite with a city view, preferably on one of the top floors. The terraces...

I have never stayed in a smaller room in my life, worst view, no a/c and so expensive. Good location, close to many attractions. The breakfast is included and was very good. I will never consider this hotel again, not even for a one night stay. We had two big suitcases as we were going on a cruise and there was no space in the room where we could open them.

This week I had the pleasure to stay for a couple of days in Rome and since a friend of mine had recommended this hotel I decided to stay there. What a good decision. When you come to the hotel, you might be a bit surprised in the beginning since the hotel is in a quite small side street, but once you enter the hotel you will be positively surprised about almost everything.

- the hotel itself: Very efficient staff. Quite friendly and attentive to your needs. I checked in within 5 minutes after arrival and they really catered for my wishes
- the rooms: What a great room. Really quiet, quite big and incredibly high ceiling. I do not know how old this hotel is, but they just dont make them like that anymore. The ceiling in my room was at least 4 meters high. I know, it does not give you more space, still it is a nice feeling when you wake up an look at the ceiling and you dont get the feeling to be boxed in, like in some of the newer hotels.
- the breakfast: The first morning I was a bit miffed about the service there. I ordered a hot chocolate and the waiter (who did not know I spoke italian) walked away muttering something about me first ordering a coffee and now wanting a hot chocolate. I had the same waiter the following day and he nicely guided me to my table and immediately said with a smile in his face "Will you be wanting hot chocolate again, sir", so my feelings about the service were completely changed now. Oh, and the chocolate is to die for: You get two silver cans, one with chocolate, one with milk, and you will be needing the milk to dilute the chocolate since it is so rich and creamy and calorie-free :). The breakfast itself is served in one of the most beautiful rooms I have seen for a long time and the selection is just amazing, everything you want to eat and some things you havent seen for ages - roasted apples for breakfast, just great
- the location. Simply amazing. It is situated at the top of the spanish stairs, so you have a great view over the city from there and it is just 5 minutes from a great jogging area.

So overall I can only recommend this hotel and I will certainly come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the garden. They are very quiet. And dont forget to order a hot chocolate...

Not sure how can they name an 2 star hotel in 5 star category. I stayed here for three nights and one of the worst hotel i have every stayed. The rooms are very small, the room is 50 % bigger than their bathroom. If you going with your family or girlfriend , please avoid this place. Might be an ok one if you are travelling alone. The fun part was they upgraded me to luxury room and asked me to stay in 3rd floor, if the luxury room is worst not sure about the ordinary one.

Room Tip: Avoid 3rd and 6th floor rooms if possible

We had heard wonderful things about this property and to our amazement it held true and beyond our expectations. Elegant yet not intimidating - wonderful staff and well appointed rooms and very nice amenities. Location had us close to shopping, fine dinning, attractions. The lobby lounge had a wonderful cabaret singer every night. Wonderful breakfast area with a vast assortment of fruits, pastries, eggs, cheeses, meats. Concierge handles all of our tour arrangements and were extremely helpful
