Best Western Hotel Rivoli
Ranked #527 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed June 28, 2012

The staff was fantastic, the rooms beautiful, and the location splendid. I am familiar with Rome, having lived there, and Parioli is one of the premier residential areas of the city so I was impressed that there was a hotel there and that the prices were as reasonable as they were. I have stayed near Fiumicino airport, out in a boutique hotel near Frascati and one near the Spanish Steps and this by far has been my favorite. Also, after having just been in hotels in Paris, it was lovely to be in a hotel where they still make beds properly (use top sheets rather than comforters). I did not have a car on this trip, but the parking rate offered by the hotel was reasonable for Rome - I hope to stay there on my next trip.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor have a wonderful, large terrace but you have to go up a short flight of stair...

This hotel is a lovely gem with very pleasant amenities, friendly desk clerks, and several major bus routes running nearby. The rooms are very elegantly decorated, and fairly large by European standards. The breakfast (included) is one of the better buffets I've seen, including hot food like eggs and bacon, as well as standard continental fare. The lift is small, but very functional and can easily fit one person with large luggage. (A couple will likely need to make two trips) Now, here's the BUT...The a/c was never able to cool the room below 78 degrees F, a bit uncomfortable for sleeping.

We arrived a bit early for our reservation but they were able to get us right into our room, which was wonderful after a long day of flying.
The room was nice, breakfast good, staff - very nice.

Room Tip: This is a bit aways from the city center. Once we learned the subway it worked well, but at least a...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel May 29th 2012 .We were attending the Compeed Gala in Rome to see Usain Bolt run and wanted a reasonably priced hotel close enough to the center of Rome which didn't cost an arm and a leg.

Check in was very quick .We were shown an economy twin room with a balcony which was very comfortable to sleep in and very quiet .It was a little hot at times but not oppressively so .The bathroom was very spacious and spotlessly clean. No tea coffee equipment , adequate storage and internet access .Most channels in Italian on TV.


Staff were excellent . We were treated extremely politely and staff always answered our questions about which trams which trains to take without ever making us feel like we were being a pest . We felt extremely comfortable in the hotel and would stay again.I must also say I contacted the reception staff ahead of my visit asking them to pre book tickets to the Borghese Gallery for me which they did !


I guess the biggest negative was the actual location of the hotel which required a lot of walking from the nearest tram ( tram 2 )...and uphill at that !!!!!! After developing blisters walking so much in Rome during the day I did dread walking up that hill at the end of a day. I am a fit 40 odd year old ! Having said that we did it for 4 nights so it is doable .

Secondly the breakfast was average. No fresh fruit juices only sweet drinks but there was lovely hot chocolate , ham , salami, bacon ,eggs , yogurts , jams, nutella , breads , and cereals .

My advice if you are trying to save money is to take the Terravision from the airport to Termini for 4 Euro and then a taxi to the hotel for 10 Euro.Always double chcek befiore you jump in a taxi at Termini however as prices can vary between 10 Euros and 28 Euros . I didn't check out the buses but understand there is one

Stayed at Hotel Rivoli for a short mid week break and was very impressed all round. Staff very friendly and helpful, Paolo was particularly helpful and even ordered food to our room for us late at night. Check in was quick, and the decor in the hotel is impressive. The room was big as was the bathroom with a cosy balcony. Everything was very clean and the room was serviced every day to a high standard. The hotel is about a 30 minute walk to the centre of Rome but this it is actually very pleasant to be set in a quieter area and the walk is very nice with some beautiful gardens nearby. Breakfast was very tasty with lots of variety - the English 90s music over breakfast was very amusing but it was very enjoyable.
Would definatley recommend a visit and would stay again without a doubt.

Hotel Pros:
- This is a good hotel - the room was really big for Europe, as was the bathroom. Shower was always hot.
- The room was kept to a very high standards when it came to cleanliness - no complaints in this area.
- The receptionists were always able to help us and point us in the right direction or recommend a bus (however, if they say it takes 20 mins, its more likely to be closer to 45 mins!)
- The breakfast offering is fairly substantial - a lot of different things to choose from and it definitely caters for everyone. 'Rush hour' seemed to be just after 8am, so if you don't like to eat in the hustle and bustle, then avoid this time. Food was constantly topped up on the buffet though, so no need to worry about losing out.

Hotel Cons:
- The hotel was VERY difficult to find - we got a taxi from the airport on our first day and I highly recommend this option as it was stress-free and got us right to the door.
- We struggled to find the right stop for the hotel when using the buses - the driver on the main bus they recommend (910) didn't even know the stop which hotel website says you should get off on, neither did he recognise the road name that the hotel had marked on our map as the closest bus stop.
- The road name for the hotel isn't on any maps (the road is, but not named) therefore always best to keep a map handy (especially for us, as we had to navigate home every night!)
- We did have to close our window in the early hours of the morning because there was a lot of noise on the street below - deliveries or rubbish collections (not the hotel's fault.)

All in all, a good hotel. Bus connections are plentiful too. The number 910 gets you to the Termini, the number 3 gets you to the Colosseum (takes a while though,) and the tram 19 gets you to the Vatican.
