We stayed at Hotel Barocco twice during an extended stay in Italy and wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.
It was the location that first attracted us to this boutique hotel. It nestles just off Piazza Barbarini, a stones throw from the bustle of Via Veneto, 5 minutes walk from the Spanish Steps and ten minutes saunter from the Trevi Fountain.
On our first stay our room looked out over the piazza and the constant theatre of life that makes up this bustling place. We had arrived by car with our two small dogs and a mountain of luggage. We were tired, hot and my wife was in need of a doctor.
The lovely staff on the front desk sorted everything with style and efficiency. The luggage was whisked upstairs, the car was parked, we were checked in and a doctor was called. What a great welcome to Rome.
On our second visit about 2 months later we were remembered and as “regular clients” were upgraded to a room that had it’s own terrace and felt more like an apartment than a room.
A special mention goes to the young barman who we kept up late one night – time got away from us as we spent the night chatting – us of our travels and our home, and him of the goings on in Italy at the time. Between us I think we solved most of the world’s problems that night.
From memory the hotel is listed as 4 star. I would rate it higher because despite the high standard of service, the immaculate rooms and the excellent breakfast, there is a genuine friendliness from all the staff that is worth a star in its’ own right.
