Great location and charming rooms. The courtyard was lovely to sit and have cocktails. The lemon tree were stunning! The linens were 5 star along with the staff. Expensive--yes, worth it--yes!! I did not have any meals there so I cannot comment of the food. Our room have double doors that opened overlooking the courtyard.

The location is perfect. You will find yourself near all the main tourist attractions. The hotel structure is great. People are friendly all the time and do their best to make you feel good.
When it comes to breakfast, it is just ok. For a U$ 50.00 breakfast you would expect at least eggs. The room where breakfast is served is amazing. Heavy silverware, the finest linens, but ... they don't even have a toast ... no bread selection ... no hot meals ...
The room is outdated. We were without hot water for 1 1 /2 day.
Overall it is a good place. But, it is overpriced. You can have a better experience for less money.

We stayed in connecting Deluxe double rooms, with 2 children. The hotel is in a great location, beautifully decorated and has calm and relaxed feel to it, which after spending the day sight seeing is just what is required. The staff are amazing and went out of their way to make our stay as memorable as possible. A special thanks must go to the concierge team, who were brilliant at arranging restaurant bookings and prepaid tickets for the Colosseum etc. We only had breakfast in the hotel, which was lovely. The rooms were large, well laid out, housekeeping were excellent with a good turndown service in the evening. Amazingly for a hotel so centrally located the rooms were very quiet. The only downside and the reason it doesn't get an outstanding rating was the bed in one of the rooms was very very hard, we did request a mattress topper, but I don't think they had one, luckily the other room had a slightly softer bed so the children had the harder bed! Also there is no free wifi in the rooms, which I found odd. If we visit Rome again we'll definitely stay at Hotel de Russie again.

I don't know what's write her other than if and when I go back to Rome, I will only stay at the Russie. It is a great hotel. Very charming courtyard, 5 star rooms, top notch service, great food and scene, and yes it is priced that way, in my opinion well worth it.

Being at the Hotel De Russie is being at an oasis of tranquility in the hectic Eternal City. We have stayed here many times and it is our repeat choice hotel in Rome. We return because the service is good, the rooms spacious and well designed and the garden a delight. The Russie is in a great location and all the great sights are within walking distance. It is simple yet elegant and has stood the test of time for us. It is expensive but so is everything else in this hotel category without the gardens. When in Rome the Russie is a tranquil retreat that is perfect for business or pleasure.

Hotel de Russie has a lot of reasons to be stunning, but above all there is one, which is extremely is hard to find. I stayed there in mid-Jan for two nights with my 5yo daughter. Here is what I think makes it very very special:

Rome is a very lively and vibrant city. It is a fantastic place but it can be tiring after long days. Hotel de Russie is such a contrast to Rome's energy. The moment you enter the hotel, everything calms down. It is like an oasis. The secret garden is out of this world. There is no excess, no show-offs, just pure natural calm tones everywhere and very comfortable environments. It starts from the terracotta exterior with blue windows and goes to pastel colored room interiors. It makes me feel like I own a residence in Rome. This contrast has a huge impact in my mood, it slows me down when I come back to the hotel from Rome's vibrant streets. The only other city hotel in which I felt this massive mood swing is the Four Seasons in Florence.

It is simply top-class, the reason I gave it 5 stars is because there is no six-stars in TripAdvisor's rating scala.

Enjoy it is my advice :)

Lovely low key rooms and public spaces exude traditional elegance. Very good breakfast buffet in a large bright room. Excellent service. While a bit of a splurge, I think the value is there.
Very good central location near the Piazza del Popolo. There is a beautiful courtyard which I'm sure would be great for dining in the warmer months. Bring a swimsuit if you want to use the hydra pool in the spa area.

Room Tip: We were facing an inner courtyard so it was very quiet.
