We just spent three nights at the River Palace hotel near Piazza del Popolo. We have stayed at quite a few hotels in Rome over the years and the River Palace undoubtedly has excellent staff, always helpful and friendly. The ground floor reception and lounge is impressive as is the decoration throughout all the hotel. Reception staff are excellent. Bar is Ok ( Italian hotels generally not too good in this area). Breakfast room and service very nice with a good choice only marred by the awful juices on offer . Bedrooms/bathrooms are very small but ornately furnished, note that baths are ridiculously small and virtually unusable. Achilles heel of the hotel is the lift system; ok to first floor but then you have to exit and take a max four person (two person with luggage) up the rest of the eight floors. Queues and waits can be lengthy at times and quite frustrating.
Position of hotel is good as the magnificent churches in the Piazza are merely yards away and the Metro stop is close by as is the 117 bus.
Overall, good hotel hindered by rooms and lift system, bailed out by excellent staff and fine hotel decoration.
