Sina Bernini Bristol
Ranked #296 of 1,269 Hotels in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We only visited the restaurant of this opulent hotel as part of a cruise. Despite this we were treated well by the friendly and helpful staff who had very good English. From the rooftop restaurant we were served excellent Italian cuisine accompanied by local Tuscan wines. . Afterwards we went out onto the balcony to enjoy the fantastic views and take photographs.

I spent a week in Rome staying at the Bernini Bristol -yes the one out of the Dan Brown book Angels and Demons. I stayed in 2005 but this time it was even more magical. I absolutely loved it. I stayed in a superior room which was spacious, comfortable, well decorated with wooden floors and was very clean. Even the Italian duvet covers were rich. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and it has a superb concierge team and bar staff and doormen. Nothing was too much trouble. This hotel is excellent and good value for money. There was a good choice of food at breakfast and the restaurant on the top of the hotel is a must. The hotel is superbly located and the major sights are within a good walking distance - buy a map and have fun navigating and we took the 3 hours bus ride first. There are a number of excellent cafes and restaurants near the hotel all serving good food but the best one was the restaurant Veneto 11 Srl in the Via Vittorio Veneto but be careful because it only has a small entrance and we walked right passed it but went back. We will be going back to Rome and this hotel next year.

Room Tip: I booked a superior room but a friend had the standard room which was still good value for money.

Spend 3 nights and enjoyed our stay.
A more business oriented hotel than turist hotel, consequently we were not stampeded by large tourist groups.
Excellent restaurant on roof with a wonderful view.
Room appropriate in size and clean and well functioning.
The bearded doorman was very service minded and helpful - thank you.
Ideal location for walking to Spanisg Steps, Piazza Navona, Trevi fountain and Forum Roman and Via Veneto (La DolceVitae).
Metro station just outside hotel.
Arreviderci Roma (;-).

Room Tip: Look for rooms on 5-7 th floors

Clean, comfortable, pleasant hotel. Housekeeping was consistently good. Beds are comfortable.
Concierge services were great. Lots of assistance offered in navigating Rome. Tickets booked for us without a hassle. Airport taxi was arranged for a member of our party who had to leave extremely early in the morning with absolutely no fuss. Staff is just very pleasant and helpful.
The only drawback to this hotel is the breakfast. It was not included in our stay and the cost of room service was foolish. Luckily there are many very nice cafes in the neighborhood, so it didn't really impact our stay. It would be nice if there was at least coffee/ tea in the rooms.
The location absolutely cannot be beat.
Can't recommend it enough.

We stayed at the Bernini Bristol for 4 nights in November. Party of four adults and three children. Overall very happy with the hotel. The two bedroom suite was excellent and very comfortable. No tea/coffee facilities which I always find irksome. However, room service was always very prompt. The hotel has a very nice rooftop bar and restaurant which I would recommend for a drink but not the food. We ate there one night and found the reception unwelcoming and the service slow and impersonal. Their food is overrated and overpriced. Go for a drink and the view only. Apart from the restaurant the hotel staff are all welcoming and very professional. One word of warning, the wifi is paid for and expensive. We experienced constant problems trying to connect due to the security on our browsers blocking access to the internet. We gave up and relied instead on a mobile with a local 3G simcard (from mobile provider TIMS purchased at Fiumicino Airport for 20 Euros with I think 2gb of data) and used the mobile as a wifi hotspot.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with a family the two bedroom suites are excellent

This hotel was wonderful. The staff was great from the front desk, concierge, to the person who helped with the bags up to the room, to the wait staff in the bars and restaurant! Breakfast had a lot of options to choose from. Loved the Pressco for breakfast. Also enjoyed the pots of coffee they brought to the table so you did not have to wait for another cup. The roof top restaurant had breathtaking views. Was warm enough to eat outside on the terrace. We had our anniversary dinner there and they made us feel very special. We also enjoyed the bottle of red wine that was in the room for us when we checked in. This place was great and well worth the price.

Needs an immediate makeover
Still stick in 1956; in other words, the last time a hammer saw this place was before i was born.

On top of that (literally) being on the 7th floor under the 8th floor restaurant, I was awakened by some night owl table draggers at 2:30 in the morning! A half hour after i complained they resumed their chair and table dragging with a side of yelling.

Never again my dear girl at the reception desk. Never afain.
