“Excellent but overpriced food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

This is my second time to stay at exedra boscolo rome, the first stay was in 2007. I like this hotel since it is wonderful in location, luxury, comfort, facilities and service. Me and my friend stayed in the panoramic room which was amaizing. Very spacious well equiped and with a luxurious decoration. The bathroom was very spacious as well, and with modern facilities. The only drawback is the overpriced food including the minibar items costs which was far more expensive than outside the hotel.
I do highly recommend staying in this hotel.

My fiance and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is very grand, vintage with touches of modern, clean and comfortable. It does bring you the luxury sty feeling. This goes for both the amenities and the rooms. Staff was very friendly but sometimes slow in responding to requests. Our room had a large patio and was very spacious.

Breakfast buffet was great with lots of options. We were very happy with the location as well.

We have spent two days at Boscolo Exedra Roma 7-9 March 2014 ,a spectacular five star hotel that puts its guests first in every way possible

Everything was fine and excellent , a wonderful hotel we have no complaints!

The hotel is a Marriott Autograph Collection which can be recommended without any doubt!

We have just had a 3 night stay at this beautiful hotel. The staff were very polite and helpful. Fantastic breakfast every day. The location is good to get to the main sights of rome as there is a metro stop right outside. Termini station is a 5 minute walk. The hotel is very impressive with a beautiful fountain outside. It is worth heading up to the roof terrace to see the view over rome and also head to the basement to see some excavated ruins underneath the hotel.

This hotel certainly has the wow factor.

The building is impressive and very beautiful, but the lack of charm and personality unfortunately makes the experience a bit cold and distant. The staffs at this hotel are polite but there is little warmth, and I got the feeling that they are just there to do their job, and not there to make you feel welcomed. I was for instance not provided any information about the hotel, e.g. the spa, work out area, the roof terrace and etc at arrival time.

I was travelling alone and while I sat down at the big lobby with a book I had to wait for 15 minutes before a waiter arrived at my table. I ordered a glass of wine, a regular Sauvignon Blanc and had to pay 18 Euros, in which included a small trey of aperitivos. I was very much looking forward to sit on the roof terrace but as I entered it was all closed! A concierge told me I could have a look but without any lights it didn’t appear very appealing. Why close the terrace just because the pool is out of function? After all, the Eternal City is all about the viewing!

On the positive side: the room was very beautiful and spacious. I was initially given a room towards one of the busy streets but I could not sleep and asked to be given another room. There was no problem with this and a portiere showed me to my new room immediately. It was beautiful and very calm. The cleaning people were friendly and the room was very tidy and clean. Mind that everything is very costly, e.g. 50 grams of chocolate costs about 12 Euros. (Mini bar).

Would I go back? I don`t think so. I paid 180 Euros per night and I would expect more; a feeling of being indulged and not having to ask for everything all the time. I mean; my arrival sums it up: when I arrived they asked me if I wanted my luggage to be carried to my room. This should not be a question! This should be standard procedure at such high standard!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, not facing the streets!

Visited the Exedra in August for a 50th Birthday treat.

Lovely building with lots of marble in a good location. Very helpful concierge service arranged several trips for us.

Didn't eat at the hotel but did use the bar on the roof at the swimming pool terrace which was a lovely spot to unwind at the end of each day.

There were several ice machines on our floor but for some reason none of them worked.

Would be happy to return or use this chain elsewhere.

The Boscolo Exedra is beautifully located on the Piazza della Repubblicca, close to the Termini railway station and within reasonable walking distance from the 'must-sees' in Rome (note that the entrance to the underground is just outside the hotel).The pictures shown on the website are a good representation of the 'grandeur' of the hotel.
The hotel is huge. The lobby is a fantastic area and the rooms are large (never seen such a high ceilings). The bathroom was well equipped, though not exceptionnally large in size for a five-star hotel.
I was there for a business conference and spent a couple of additional days for visiting the wonderful city of Rome.
My wife and I left however pretty disappointed, due to a couple of reasons I believe are not acceptable for a five-star hotel:
- returning from dinner on our last night, we were not able anymore to switch out the main lights of our room. Nothing to do with too many drinks, but the switch simply did not work anymore. We had to withdraw our card from the electricity switch to darken the room
- in addition, the airco turned suddenly into overdrive. The fan speeded up to top speed, got pretty noisy and spread nothing but hot current. No possibility to switch it off. It was too late to contact the front desk and our previous contacts with the receptionists were not particularly warm and helpful to convince ourselves to contact the reception during the night. (quite some other colleagues complained about the airco as well)
- the toiletbril did not fit the toilet and was broken

After all those minor points, I would like to point out that the two concierges, Valentina and Adam, were fabulous. They assisted us tremendously with excellent suggestions for restaurant reservations and helpful advice on what to visit in town.

If you go for a five-star hotel, you may expect top-notch facilities and service, something the hotel did not live up to in my opinion.
