My wife and I just had an unusually good experience in staying at the Hotel Bernini Bristol in Rome. The hotel has an excellent location just a few blocks from the Spanish Steps, and it is next to a bank with ATM and a subway stop. It has a a tremendous view from the rooftop restaurant and lounge (where we had drinks) with St. Peter's Basilica visible, among other sights. The room was very comfortable and had all we wanted, including safe and good AC. Most impressive, the service was outstanding. The two concierges Max and Umberto were extremely knowledgeable and resourceful, in suggesting how we spend our limited time in Rome, to helping us obtain reservations on short notice to difficult-to-obtain attractions, and to recommending outstanding and memorable restaurants off the beated path, and only a few blocks away. we could not have been happier with this gem of an experience. In addition, the staff was extremely helpful when we arrived early morning, and gave us a very nice room before regular check-in time. We feel very fortunate that a friend recommended this hotel, and recommend it to anyone.

The Hotel Bernini-Bristol is located in of the best areas of Rome, within easy reach of all monuments and attractions.
Its staff exceeds my expectations every time, welcoming me warmly and making me feel at home!!
I highly recommend this hotel not only for its historic setting and excellent location, but especially for the professionalism and courtesy of its staff and their committment of making your stay a memorable one.

I decided to turn a stopover into an overnight stay and priced the airport Hilton. Their rate was so out of sinc with their rooms that I decided to stay in Rome. For the same price I was able to book a luxury hotel that a family member had enjoyed in the past. The Bristol Bernini has a great location, minutes from the Spanish Steps. The staff is welcoming and heard it was my birthday and offerred me an amazing upgrade. I am glad that I took pictures because the entire experience feels like a dream. Mr Fernando Pane, the front office manager, and his staff were gracious professionals who offerred the highest level of service from beginning to end. I can't wait to go back!

I had an excellent experience in my stay at The Bernini. The location is great. The staff was very helpful and professional. I would stay here any time I am in Rome. The view from the roof top restaurant is breath taking. Staying at The Bernini made for a great vacation.

Upon arrival I go to my room and bathroom and check if it's clean. First thing I noticed a spot of poo in the toilet.. 5 minutes later 2 housekeeping ladies knock and ask if it was all ok...I said, no the bathrooms is dirty, nobody ever came back to clean it... the room was non smoking and you could smell smoke all over. The remote control was oily. The room service is outrageously expensive. The breakfast was ok, but again too expensive. Staff in the reception and bar was rude, unpolite, non professional. I requested a wake up call that I never got. Internet should be free or of easy access, not at all! Too bad in such a great spot of Rome the hotel is such a dissapointment...

We stayed at the Hotel Bernini Bristol as part of a Luxury Link package. The deal included a 3 night stay with breakfast and one dinner at the hotel's rooftop restaurant. We were extremely satisfied with our stay. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and polite throughout our visit. The hotel is centrally located near the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and other attractions. Our room was clean and well-appointed with comfortable beds. The rooftop restaurant has one of the most beautiful views of Rome and was one of the highlights of our trip. The food and service were exceptional. Since the dinner was included as part of our package, we were able to enjoy a 5 star dining experience with no bill. The meal was tremendous, but would have been very expensive without the package deal. We will definitely return to the Bernini Bristol the next time we visit Rome.
