Dear Guest,
We thank you for having chosen Hotel Locarno in Rome and we are very glad to hear you did enjoy your recent stay with us!
Rooms on the 4th floor are all superior rooms and very comfortable but next time you’ll be back at Locarno, take the chance to try one of our rooms on the 7th floor which are as well very spacious and quiet or book the top floor room in our dependence with a lovely terrace overlooking the roofs of Rome!
Please do not hesitate to contact me directly in order to help you in choosing the room that better fits your desires.
I hope to personally meet you here in Rome meanwhile I send you my personal best regards,
Claudia Giuliani

Friendly staff, although be aware that not all of the are English-speaking. Brush up on your ability to order drinks and ask for assistance in getting around Rome. While I had no trouble ordering a mojito at the bar, my mother, who was seated on the outdoor patio, was told that the bartender did not know how to make one. Rooms are typical European with small bathrooms, tiny showers, firm beds and not much else.

This has potential to be a great hotel as it has so many old world character features. We stayed here on a Friday evening which was busy, popular and noisy. The room was really good and comfortable but on the ground floor you could hear the Friday evening bar nightlife. The outside patio allows smoking which quickly infiltrated the ground floor.
We will definitely give it another go and ask for a room further away from the main saloon.
Staff were efficient, although friendliness was not high on the priority list.
We would have also liked to have been served breakfast on the rooftop. By the time we had our breakfast - 9.00 am there was not much selection left. Suggestion - eat early.

Room Tip: Rooms on ground floor noisy. Eat Breakfast earlier for full selection in busy periods.

Dear Annie & Charles,
Thank you for your review and for choosing Hotel Locarno for your stay in Rome last June 5th. The room you had is located in a very nice corner of the hotel as you agreed and we are sorry if the buzz in the evening may have caused disturb to you..that buzz is one of the reasons that make the Hotel Locarno a very cosy and requested hotel. We also know that smoking can be a problem for who does not smoke but as you may know smoking outside cannot be limited in Italy by the owner of the hotel therefore especially in summer time when the patio is very busy with in-house Guests and people from outside we always suggest to non-smokers to request rooms at the Dependance or on the opposite side of the bar. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly for your next stay with us, it will be my pleasure to help you in choosing the room that would be most comfortable for you.
My best regards,
Claudia Giuliani

I stayed here several years ago, and wanted to return because it was a great location, the room was clean, safe, and comfortable. I was hoping to ask for the same room - it had a great view.

Turns out they've done renovations and that room doesn't exist anymore! Also, all their single rooms in the Anahi (an annex across the small street from the main hotel) are now on the ground floor. I explained that I'd feel safer not being on the ground floor, and they upgraded me to a double room without question.

The room was once again very clean, the bathroom was really nice, great TV, free wifi. There is a nice roof deck on top of the main hotel. Everyone there was very friendly, and breakfast in the dining room was very good.

They provide a car service to and from the airport which is slightly cheaper than a taxi, and also more convenient.

All in all a great stay. I'd return yet again.

Hotel is located near Piazza del Popolo and within walking distance of Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Vatican and Flaminio Metro station. Free breakfast is great, with a variety of sliced meats, eggs, juices and prosecco. Your choice of espresso, cappuccino or Cafe Americano. Hotel staff all speak English and are very friendly and available to help. I needed to print a reservation I made online, and Vanessa was able to assist me. Hotel has old-world charm, and bar is lively and packed at night. Rooms are decent size, and are clean. One downside was our bed, which was very hard, but overall a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Rooms across the street from main hotel are quieter.

The Hotel Locarno is a classic Italian style hotel with lots of character. It's location is excellent for sightseeing, restaurants and shops. The staff were friendly and helpful. However, with all its charm and original fittings, it is a bit run down and if improved would be so much better. We got upgraded at extra cost but it made a big difference as we were a family. However, the showers were awful and not what you would expect from a 4 star with a 4 star price. The beds were hard and not very comfortable, the TV/DVD old and dated. The roof top had an amazing view but not sure used as no facilities for beverages. With no double glazing it can be quite noisy at night. The breakfast was excellent and all the staff very friendly. Overall we had a lovely stay, but with improvements it would be an extra special hotel.
