“good location, thats about it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2009

we stayed at hotel barocco at the end out a 3 week trip and while it was in a convenient location, probably would not be quick to recommend for the price. i had to use a few am ex points, and this was the best rated for the additional money i had to spend. if i had to actually pay the room rate without the points, it would be way overpriced.

if you at all are sensitive to noise, this is not the place for you. while i totally understand we are in a large city (which i love), beyond the traffic, there was what we dubbed "crazy guy" in the piazza yelling at cars and making all sorts of odd noises. we first were given a room with a side window (not facing piazza barberini, but a side street). i thought it would be ok as i wear earplugs anyway but after being in the room for an hour or so, we determined that there was no way we would be able to tolerate the noise and asked if there were any other rooms available. the gentlemen at the front desk was very accomodating and did find us an interior room, albeit with twin beds, but by then we didnt' care. the room was huge compared to the first one and was very quite but pretty dark. i don't think housekeeping was very happy with us about moving and didn't really hide the fact. other than the front desk, i didn't find anyone that worked their to be very friendly.

rooms could use an updating but the bathrooms were very nice. breakfast was good, plenty of the normal european fare. the hotel is very well located to any of the sites. just a quick stroll to spanish steps, pizza navona and trevi but we took a cab to st peters. we love rome, but for the posted rates, probably could find something a bit better.

The hotel is in a great location, and the staff in the lobby were very helpful. Room was very nice and clean, and we did not hear any street noise with the windows closed. You can walk to most sites. Taxis are expensive in Rome. We took the metro to the Vatican (1 euro each way), and the lobby staff sold us the tickets. There was a metro stop right in the Piazza Barberini. The staff also recommended an excellent restaurant that was very close the Trattoria Trittone. It was the best food we had in Italy. The breakfast included scrambled eggs,excellent pastries, and very good coffee.

The hotel is perfectly placed in a beautiful part of the city, within walking distance of most of the sights,. The room was great, clean and comfortable, bathroom with bath, shower and bidet. Breakfast was excellent, loads of choice and the staff were helpful and very friendly, we would definitely stay there again.

Planned to walk everywhere so needed a fairly central location. Barocca was ideal - within easy walking distance (even for pensioners like us) of all the major sites (and much more). The short distance to Trevi Fountain made for a lovely stroll each evening.
Everything about the hotel suited us - including the wide choice breakfast
Rome great - particularly the architectural gems around almost every corner when walking off the beaten track. One disappoinment - the overcharging by most restaurants. Always know the price before ordering - 10 euros for complimentary (?) bread is a little over the top!

Spent a week in Rome in late April - did all the tourist stuff from the Barocco as our base of operations. Every detail exceeded expectations. Staff was top-rate, professional and eager to serve. We upgraded from our base suite to balcony suite for twenty Euros/night - a great bargain, especially since we were "paying" for base room with American Express points. Good restaurants in vicinity and an excellent location just off Via Vittorio Veneto.

This hotel is comprised of two adjoining buildings - has been expanded and upgraded recently - cleanliness and staff attention to detail were more than could have hoped for.

This was my second time to Rome and I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel is in a great location and within walking distance to Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Via Veneto, Via Conditti, the metro. There are many great restaurants steps from the hotel. The hotel is tucked down a small side street right off of Piazza Barberini and is very quiet. The staff was fantastic and very helpful. Our room was very generous especially by European standards. The breakfast buffet was filled with eggs, bacon, meats, cheeses, yogurt, pastries, etc. Great value, great hotel, nothing bad to speak of.

This hotel was in a great location for a short break in Rome. It was easy to transfer from the airport by train and metro and then after that it was possible to walk to all the main attractions. The staff were all very friendly and our room on the 1st floor of the hotel was clean, spacious and very quiet. The selection at breakfast was very nice and the bar was a lovely place to sit for a quiet drink after a long day of sight seeing. The hotel does not have its own restaurant and the recommended restaurants were quite pricey, but there are plenty of good restaurants not far from the hotel - look out for Gusto Pizzeria which is located not far from the Spanish steps. This is not a luxury hotel, but it offers a great location and value for money.
