“Only one word to describe this hotel- WOW!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

My husband and I were in the middle of our honeymoon when we came to Rome. I have been to Rome several times, but usually stay near the Spanish Steps. I feel so glad to have found this hotel. It is located in the Cielo area which is next to the Colliseum. It is the BEST area to have as a home base. Everything is within 10-15 minutes to walk to.

But forget the location... the hotel itself is simply gorgeous! It is 5 star through and through. The rooms are modern and the bathrooms are top notch, all newly renovated. The staff was absolutely full class and service... they did everything for us, from booking dinners, to getting our train tickets, to obtaining a simm card for me to contact our next hotel. I could go on and on, it really was one of the nicest experiences I have had in a long time. In particular, Bruno Papaleo, the GM was entirely attentive to every need that we had. In terms of what your honeymoon should be, this was the perfect picture.

The best part of the hotel is the rooftop. It literally overlooks the Colliseum and has the best views in all of Rome. Even if you don't stay here, at least go to the restaurant. it's called the Aroma and is, by NYC standards, top of the line. You have breakfast every morning here as well. I have recommended this hotel to anyone who is even thinking of going to Italy. It is a must. Absolutely fabulous hotel.

This Hotel is a 5-star by European standards, and I was prepared for a small room. Our room was definitely 5-star quality by American standards, as well. The Staff was attentive and always professional and courteous. The breakfast upstairs was always delicious with fresh fruit. I sprained my ankle during our visit and the kitchen staff was helpful in keeping my icepack at the ready (and always cold) and fresh ice delivered upon request.

We also left our summer hats behind as we had no room to pack them returning to the U.S.; the Hotel emailed asking if we would like them shipped home.

We will stay here, when we return to Rome. No hesitation. Our compliments to Giacamo, Paul and all the wonderful Staff for a great stay.

This hotel has the best location out of any hotel in Rome. The colosseum is right across the street. All points of interest are within a 15 minute walk. The staff are very friendly and help you with anything you need. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. Excellent stay.

Only spent a couple of nights at Palazzo Manfredi, but was made to feel like royalty! Reception staff were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Our room was ready upon check-in after 3, as we planned our departure from Florence mid-day to enjoy a leisure scenic 2-hr train ride to Rome. A very short taxi ride (15€) from train to Manfredi was easy, (don't mind if taxi drops you off in the middle of the street, on metro tracks in front of hotel, it probably saves at least 5€ off taxi fare, as navigating one way streets can seem to take much longer for door front drop off). We were hosted to an afternoon Proseco & light snack in their lounge looking at the impressive view of the Colloseum before we went to our room. The room was very big, nicely decorated, well appointed bathroom with vintage bathtub & vanity. There was only a short glass partition that separated the tub/shower from the bidet, which made showering a bit challenging, hard not to flood the floor. A lovely champagne and fruit basket arrived shortly after we got in the room, as we were celebrating a special anniversary/birthday. Although Our room didn't face the colosseum, the windows opened and there was a large park across the street. Street noise was not am issue as the double paned glass and blackout drapes kept noise & light out completely! We read great reviews on & had tried to prebook our reservations at their signature Restaurant Aroma, for the first night, but they were already full. Got a good recommendation for a casual trattoria within short walk around the corner, and had a traditional Tuscan pasta dinner. There was quite a few eateries to choose from, but decided in the second one recommended by hotel. Quaint shops, gelateria, and a small convenience store to pick up snacks & beverages all found within walking close to hotel. We did enjoy a fabulous dinner at Aroma's the next night, good service, tasty menu AND That view of the Colloseum at night is quite amazing!!! Attire requested was elegant/resort, the hotel provided valet service to press our evening wear, left on the bed in the morning, and back in time for dinner early evening. When we returned from dinner, there were turn down "truffles" at our bedside, which was a nice touch and classy way to end a wonderful evening. Our only regret is that we did not reserve Colloseum ticket for touring there the next day, the hotel offered, but needs to know night before, as they get VIP tickets (no line) very early in the a.m before they're sold out. We had Rome passes for the hop on and off, which is a great way to see all the "must see's" in a short time, where you can choose to get off and walk, or stay on, there are two routes to choose from 60 or 90 minutes. It rained lightly on our sightseeing day, which made it still a nice way to enjoy Rome undercover. We LOVED Hotel Palazzo Manfredi, and would not hesitate to return, again the hotel, staff and location makes it all worth the $$$$First class all the way!

First night in Rome for our honeymoon! We were greeted at the hotel with free champagne in the roof top restaurant. The colosseum is so close you can almost touch it. The hotel arranged for a bed of rose petals in the shape of a heart on the bed. The room was exceptional with an awesome bathroom. Although the price was relatively high, the location next to the colloseum was worth it. Dinner at the restaraunt will run about 150-200 euro, but also worth the price (at least once). I would definitely stay here again.

We were in Rome for just a couple of days to "decompress" before continuing our travels in Italy. This hotel was the perfect choice -- small, unique and elegant without spending a fortune. The staff, especially the front office manager, Giacomo, couldn't have been more helpful. He made arrangements for us at a nearby spa, and for a wonderful tour guide. When the staff found a blouse that I had left behind, I was contacted and the blouse was sent to me at our next venue. The views of the Coliseum are spectacular, and offer an interesting contrast to the hotel's contemporary, high tech touches. We will definitely be back.

Yes to all of this: great location; fantastic room (suite with view on the Colloseum); great service; perfect location; Great dinner in the restaurant. So, all the good things you read are right.

Could have been (a bit) better: the breakfast; the cleanliness of stairs; the hotel is along a busy road which makes it a bit noisy in the morning

But all by all: a very nice hotel to stay and would advise to stay there when you are in Rome
