Quiet location, not so kind receptionists.Spacious hotel room, bathroom fair, quite a lot of scale on taps. Bed of average quality, pillow too poor.
Hotel bar is closed at 24h00.
NH breakfast is very good. Pitty that most plates were NOT clean.

NH hotels are supposedly business hotels and that's how it seemed to be. The rooms were comfortable but nothing fancy. They were quite average. But it is clean and comfortable so no issues there. The best part is the staff that they have. They go out of their way to help the guests which was delightful as my experience in Europe has almost always been otherwise. The hotel is very close to the Vatican. Since it is in a residential area... the walks around the hotel were very quiet with very few tourists around. All in all a good stay here and would recommend it !

Went with my mother, stayed for a week. The breakfast was good, the staff was helpfull. We managed to walk to many attractions including the spanish steps, the panthenon, the trevi fountain, the vatican.
We ate sandwhichs the first day we arrived and neither of us could eat more than a few bites, I guess our palates are not made for such strange flavours. They didn't make us pay for the food, but the waiter was rude to us every time we saw him afterwards. Mum wanted a diet coke from the bar and it cost us 5euro for the can. I went down the street a couple of blocks and bought a case of coke and water for almost the same price. There is no point in using the expensive items in the minibar either when you are so close to the supermarket.

There were tour groups arriving different times and different days, and we were unable to eat at the hotel restaurant as it was closed to the regular patrons of the hotel in order to service them. This seemed odd to us as we paid alot of money to stay for the week, and they were only there for the night. The restaurant didn't actually open for business until 7pm, and my mother didn't see anything she would have actually wanted to eat on the menu anyway. Plus all the food on the menu was really expensive.
One of the pilots that was at the hotel the day my mum freaked out on the staff for not letting her into the dining room because of the tour groups suggesteda great little place to eat called the grotto just a few blocks away. There is also a nice gilatto place less than a block away, and a great little walk in eatery around the corner that served delicious slices of pizza, and meats etc..

Okay, the room. When I first walked in I thought - - - Porno room!!!!! One giant mirror taking up the far wall, where you have a view of the entire room, and exactly opposite was the giant padded wall ---I want to call it a chair rail???? directly over the head of the bed and running from wall to wall. Red and overpadded, what was the function of this item??? To prevent severe trauma to the head in the event of intense mattress use???? Okay, the room was small, but when you are there long enough it grows on you and becomes cosy. If you are tired and had a busy day of walking, it is the perfect place to be. People always complain when things are not as "good" as the things in their own country, but you shouldn't really compare a place like canada (where I'm from) to a place like Rome.

All the staff was more than wonderful to me (with the exception above), and went out of their way to do whatever they could for me. They would even leave the desk to come outside and talk to me if they saw me out there, and asked me to spend time with them on quiet nights. When you are nice to people, and show them you actually appreciate the things they do for you, theyeturn all those positive feelings to you. Even the waiter warmed up to me after he saw me laughing with the other staff. Remember that the people working in a hotel see many people in a week, and the majority of them are not treated well, and usually only hear complaints for things thay are not responsible for. This would frustrate anyone I know, and may not make them seem that friendly. The italian people really are good people, you have to give them a chance to show you.

Would I stay here again? YES!!! Did I love it all? NO. But the pros outweigh the cons. The location can't be beat, the staff was really nice, there are tons of places to eat and shop, the metro is around the corner, it is in a much quieter and cleaner part of Rome, you feel safe walking around at night, you are not that far from the airport, and when the flight crew keeps you up at night with their layover parties,the staff is great at getting them to settle down so you can sleep.

The only thing I really was annoyed with was when I put the do not disturb sign on the door and I came back from breakfast to find my room cleaned, but I let that go. The next day I had the sign on the door again, and thought maybe they didn't notice yesterday. I was woken up by the maid standing beside my bed with the door open, asking to clean my room, then appologizing for waking me up. I say annoyed but it was more like really pissed off. I couldn't fiqure out why they gave me the sign to use if it was actually of no use at all. The other thing was the yellow stain on the sheets when I first arrived. Was this sheet changed and washed, or was this stain from the last patron of this room? I didn't notice it the first night we were there, but after a 9hour flight I don't think I would have cared that much anyway (I can't sleep on planes). then a few days later when I found the empty cigarette package under the bed, I decided the maid hadn't actually cleaned much of the room except for the toilet, shower, making the bed, refilling the bathroom stock. I tend to be a little bit of a germifobe, so I took sheets from the cleaning cart,and new towels, and "borrowed" the cleaner to wipe down toilet and door handles, sink taps and faucets etc - - -but could not bring myself to use or touch anything to do with the beday.

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor facing back door of the hotel restaurant, decent room, good a/c, g...

This hotel was the first hotel that I stayed in on a European vacation. I was hesitant about it since I had heard that European hotels were small, air conditioning was not as cool, etc. I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The lobby area was very nice and they provided a great breakfast. It was located in a more residential area, so not a lot of tourists were around. It will still well within walking distance to major sites though. The room was decent as well, although the bed felt like it was on the floor. The only issue we had was that we couldnt check in until 5:00 after flying the entire night before and walking around Rome all day. Apprently the cleaning staff went on strike earlier in the day so they were behind on getting rooms ready. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Rome.

We stayed at the Leonardo da Vinci for three nights prior to going on a cruise. We were impressed with the hotel. The rooms, although small were nicely furnished and had lovely bathroom goodies.
The breakfast buffet was fabulous - a really healthy way to start the day!
My only gripe would be the lack of coffee. None in rooms and charges in bar for drinks were costly.
Nevertheless, we loved the fact that the hotel was so near the sights in Rome. We walked in each morning, returned late afternoon and then wandered out for dinner later. Definitely worth a visit - but take a travel kettle!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

The location of the hotel is very good. Close to the metro and the Vatican.
Breakfast was good, but more vegetables would have even been better.
Air condition was very useful in the room.

Technical equipment was not perfect: coffee machine did not work properly, we did not have TV chanels in the room, and the elevators lived their own lifes. :)

Staff was not customer-friendly enough: it took 25 minutes to check in and 3 different person dealt with us.

Overall opinion: NH Leonardo da Vinci is an average hotel with a great location. If You do not have **** expectations You will enjoy it!

Good hotel with good services. Close to Lepanto Metro, but also within walking distance of the historic sights in the center of town, which made this a good launch point for walking days and also day trips via the train.

Wifi in the lobby was unreliable and guests were lined up at the front desk to get it fixed. Each individual was being connected with the customer service line to get through the issues- made it a long, slow process.
