“Hotel Splendide was Just That”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was our first hotel on a two week vacation with four more stops and hotels to stay at. It is small boutique hotel and lovely. The room was grande and luxurious. The bathroom also was very nice . We ate in the hotel restaurant on the top and the view was amazing and breathtaking.But it was VERY expensive.
Breakfast was probably the best of our whole trip.We returned on the last day of our trip to leave from Rome aiport. There was a mistake and they did not have us booked. We were three couples! Not only were they appologetic but they put us in their sister hotel. When we arrived they were expecting us and we were given suites!

We traveled with two couples and spent 5 nights at this hotel on our first visit to Rome. The hotel is very upscale with an opulent 'Romanesque' décor and spacious rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful with directions and reservations. The rooftop restaurant offers 'fine' dining with decent views looking west towards the Vatican. The complimentary breakfast was also quite nice offering westerly views of the Roman skyline. The hotel is reasonably close to the Spanish Steps and Spagna Metro stop and just down the road from Villa Borghese Gardens. But if not using the Metro, anticipate long walks to the Forum and Vatican.

I chose this hotel to go away with my girlfriend to propose and it definitely added to the memories we have.

The rooms were opulent and the rooftop breakfast room and restaurant offers fantastic views across the park.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up over looking the park if possible

My husband and I spent three nights at this hotel and we will return. The staff was wonderful. The hotel immaculate. The rooms are exquisite. Breakfast in the morning was the best. We highly recommend this hotel. Well worth what we paid.

We spent 11 days at Hotel Splendide Royal. This was an excellent choice from a location, service, food and hospitality perspective. All of the staff were friendly, resourceful, helpful and very pleasant to deal with. They made the celebration of our 40th Anniversary a memorable one. Mirabelle was an absolute delight, great food, wine, service, coupled with a fantastic view of Rome.
The daily breakfast ritual was also a delight, particularly the variety of fresh fruit, cheese, etc. The service provided by Gina and Antoine was impeccable and memorable.
The entire experience was a delight and when next in Rome, we'll be sure to return.

Room Tip: Our first 10 nights were on the street side overlooking the Gardens as was the 11th, except 1 floor...

My husband and I spent 3 nights here for our 10 year anniversary. We could not have been more pleased. We stayed in a standard room which was beautiful and immaculate. The bathroom was a great size. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were nice and quiet. The location was perfect. Very easy to get around, walking distance to the Spanish Steps. We were seconds away from delicious restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was generous. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We spent 3 night there in mid September and I am very happy with our experience. The hotel itself is nicely appointed, the front-desk staff is fast and very helpful. We had a non-smoking superior room with free breackfast at a very good price as we made early booking. The room had a bed room ( may be a bit small) and an antechamber with a desk, chairs and a wardrobe. The bathroom was sizable and spotless.
The breakfast was very good served on the 6th floor with breathtaking views over Rome. I beleive, the breakfast was plenty for all tastes. Perhaps, my only complain would be that coffee ( americano or capucchino) was a bit too weak to my taste.
The location is convenient with close proximity to all major attractions with less than 10 min. away from the top of Spanish steps.
