“Slipping”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

I'm afraid since my last visit I really felt the exedra has lost it's focus! Obviously the location is still fabulous as are the bedrooms and the building. However,it just feels like there is a genuine lack of care and interest when it comes to the food and beverage service at the hotel. The restaurant that breakfast is served in is totally uninspiring,from the food to the ambience it's just not a pleasant experience.one new years eve we bought a round of drinks for four people waited nearly half an hour and charged nearly 50 euros!outrageous.
I will not be returning here,the arrogance of the hotel needs to be replaced by some understanding of their clients.there are a lot of excellent hotels in Rome so watch out.

I was rather disappointed, yes a great setting and a beautiful building. However, whilst i encountered examples of good and kind service, I found the rooms small, dark and poky. The restaurant menu was limited and my food lacked Italian imagination - ordering squid and prawns i had expected a melange of fresh vegetables or a warm salad ; instead the lt had been battered and deep fried removing all taste - yuck; anything but the Silver Spoon. The gym was poor too.

I visited the Boscolo Exedra in September 2013 for four nights with my wife. It was our fourth trip to Rome and we had always wanted to stay at the Exedra.

It is certainly not the cheapest hotel but, for the quality offered at the Exedra, one must expect to pay a higher premium.

It is centrally located on the historical Piazza della Repubblica and about a fifteen minute walk from the Termini Station Area. Opposite this hotel which was originally built as a palace is the historic church of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri. Central to the Piazza della Repubblica is the beautiful Fountain of Naiadi.

Exiting from the Piazza della Repubblica is the Via Nazionale which takes you toward many of Romes attractions. At the end of the Via Nazionale is Via dei Serpenti which leads to the Colosseum. Reaching the Colosseum by foot from the hotel takes about a half hour. The cost a taxi to the same destination is about ten Euros.

We did not take up the option of breakfast, but it was on offer 25 Euros each down from the basic price of 35 Euros. There are plenty of alternative places to eat and at much lower prices along the Via Nazionale and Via dei Serpenti where we just watched to world go buy.

We stayed in room 305 which overlooks the Piazza della Repubblica, the fountain and the church. If you like taking pictures then, this room is the perfect place to stay. Overlooking the Piazza, traffic noise can be high, but we found the sound insulation provided by the double glazed windows very effective.

Drinks at the hotel were expensive at about 12 Euros for half pint of lager. For beer drinkers, that is about £20 a pint!!! Welcome to the tourist prices in Rome! Red wine was similarly priced for a large glass.

All-in-all, we loved this hotel and will definitely return in the not-too-distant future.

Room Tip: Room 305 has a great view of the Piazza della Repubblica. The noise of traffic can be a little high...

I've been in Rome several times, sleeping in different hotels, but from now on this is going to be where I go. The service is excellent, the restaurant exquisite and the rooms are absolutely charming.

As the title says, the perfect place to sleep when visiting Rome, for business, or pleasure!

Room Tip: Ask for an exterior room to have a view to the Diocletian's Baths.

Really nice hotel right in the city centre. Very grand. Rooms was huge and spacious and I really enjoyed the extra bath amenities such as bath salts and foam bath. They layout for the rooms was a little confusing and I was always getting lost but it is a beautiful hotel. Reminded me of the classic Fairmont style.

Beds are firm if you like that type. I would stay again.

When we arrived in Rome we stayed at the Boscolo Exedra for 4 nights. The hotel is simply gorgeous. There is a very large fountain in front, and it is located in an historical building, the lobby is lavishly appointed with all of the wonderful architectural accents and marble you would hope to see. Our room was just as nice, with high ceilings, crown moulding and a balcony that overlooked the fountain and the other historical sites near by. The hotel is very conveniently located to the Termini, the main train station, the metro, as well as all of the main historical attractions in the Via Republicca area.

The restaurant was definitely a high point in our culinary experiences in Italy, as well was the breakfast buffet- which had a vast assortment of choices- all expertly prepared.

My favorite part of the experience was the service. Giuseppe, director of guest services, was especially helpful. He spent quite a bit of time reviewing our travel plans with us, and was very helpful in fine-tuning some of the areas we were not familiar with. As a result of his input, our trip went very smoothly. We were so impressed with our stay that we booked reservations at both the Boscolo Venezia for the Venice portion of our trip, and then again when we returned to Rome we stayed at the Exedra. Our visit the second time was just fantastic, and we will definitely stay there again when we go back, as well as look for the Boscolo Hotel name when we make future reservations in Europe.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room facing the front of the hotel.
