“Wonderful way to start a trip!”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

Rome and the Hotel Splendide was the first stop on a riding tour of Italy and it was an incredible experience! Everything was just perfect from the location(right by the Borghese Gardens) to my elegant room. I had a small balcony and could have my morning coffee and look over the rooftops of Rome. The Hotel is elegant yet warm and friendly with a staff that was always helpful. The breakfast was on the rooftop which made starting the day an experience, again coffee looking over the views of Rome. I got to use the spa at the "sister"hotel and it was a delightful way to spend my last afternoon. It was only a quick taxi away but well worth the visit! Molto Grazie!

Our stay in Rome was made most enjoyable by the excellent service, the location and the comfort of the hotel.

From front desk, to house keeping, to the restaurant, the staff was welcoming and attentive.

The hotel is within minutes of the Spanish Steps and some of the best shopping in Rome. It is within comfortable walking distance to a number of attractions and very close to the Metro.

It is the comfort of the hotel that made it really special for us. The beds, along with the pillow menu made it a wonderful haven to return to after a long day of sight seeing. Our terrace was an ideal place from which to enjoy the beautiful view of the gardens, sip a glass of wine or just fall asleep in the comfortable outdoor furniture.

The Splendide Royal is a hotel to enjoy and remember.

My husband and I spent 4 days at the Spledide Royal before launching off on an Insight tour of Italy. (No, the Spledide Royal was not one of the Insight hotels; we wanted to stay in a 5 star hotel before we joined the tour. BUT the hotels that Insight used were very nice). The staff at the Splendide were very friendly and helpful. The room was beuatifual and the included breakfast was the best of all the breakfasts we had during out 2+ week stay in Italy. When we return to Rome, we will surely stay at the Splendide Royal again!

Me and my wife have spent weekend in this hotel. The hotel is very romantic but I believe it needs some renovation and also for the price it could have provided a bit better services. The gym is small and there is no swimming pool. Our bathroom was a bit smelly and jacuzzi did not work.

Dear Guest,
we apologize that your stay with us was not of your satisfaction regarding the room assigned. The jacuzzi bathtub are usually double checked before each new arrival, probably something wrong have to be registered in our procedures and we regret that this happened.
Regarding the renovation we inform that our property have been inaugurated recently in 2001 and every year important maintenance improvements are done in each rooms and bathrooms.
We have effectively a small fitness room on site however we have never advertised in our services a swimming pool inside our property, alternatively since September of last year the Splendide is offering to each of its guest the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary use of a very large SPA (including an indoor and outdoor pool) hosted in our sister property which is located only few minutes driving distance from our Hotel. This new service is clearly advertise and it is a pitty that you did not take advantage of it.
Thank you for the preference expressed. Best regards.

Is one of the pleasures to be found in this old-line hotel located around the corner from the Via Veneto. Although the hotel is within walking distance of the Spanish steps, the ambient temperature seems about 5 degrees cooler. Its location across the street from the Parco Borghese is a definite plus. The staff is well-trained and unfailingly polite. this is the second time I have stayed here and I will definitely be back.

This was our third visit to Rome and we stayed at the Hotel for our wedding anniversary. We had a Jr. Suite with a terrace and the room was just fantastic. The hotel is lovely with just an edge of age, in fact doesn't a little crack above a baseboard add just a bit of romantic charm!

The staff is extremely professional and at the ready to assist - whatever the need. The dinner at Mirabelle was truly an exceptional experience; the staff attentive but unobtrusive, the food exceptionally prepared and presented, Rome is cast before you in ever-changing hues as the sun sets...

This is a must stay hotel.

Room Tip: There are three Jr. Suites with terrace!!!
