Grand Hotel Hermitage
Ranked #1,147 of 1,273 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed April 19, 2013

The pros and cons of this hotel are-
Pros: Nice and safe residential area
Clean rooms
Reliable wi fi
Very nice piazza (de muse) very close where you can have a coffee
Cons
Out of date decoration
Small rooms that need re-decorating
Horrible location-only one bus reaches the hotel (number 360) and far away from the metro. Be prepared to pay something from 14 euros to 22 euros from spanish steps. Italian taxis are not reliable with the price.
Breakfast has a good variety of food but not very good quality-horrible coffee.
Staff not very willing to help.

I stayed for three nights at the Grand Hotel Hermitage. At the reception you feel it as a Grand Hotel. By the time you check in and reach your room, it is no longer Grand. Rooms are a bit small, the shower area very small. Not adequate plug facility to charge your batteries. Can plan and make it Grand and restore it's image.

I confess I was curious about this hotel after reading so many negative reviews here and decided to check it out by myself in the the first week of the year, normally dedicated to my master team fencing training at the nearby Club Scherma Roma. The hotel is in "Quartiere Parioli", a nice residential area in the North of the city. There's a bus stop a few meters away and a easy 15 min ride takes you directly to Termini (central) Station from where you can walk, take the metro everywhere or the train to the airport. Rooms are nice, breakfast above average, wi-fi works all around for free, there's a mini refrigerator available ... so, I found it quite all right and I would never find anything similar in the chaotic city center without paying a fortune. Okay, there are some negative aspects: no free parking in the area in case you need it, one or another member of the staff appeared not to be in a good mood and - most important for me - the walls really should be sound-proof because you can easily listen to every single word or sound your neighbors make ... I mean every ! In the end it's worth the price. For more take a look at the pictures, they have a lot to say.

Room Tip: I will have to walk to find a restaurant at night so bring some snacks to the hotel or pass by the m...

The willing of helping their customers is not very great. Sometimes it even feels like they try to work against you. We were also asked to pay in advanced . Splitting up the bill in two were to much work for them, so we had to come back later the same day to pay.

-no hot water 4 days out of 5
-in one of the two rooms I booked the air conditioning did not work so it was freezing
-the hotel isn't placed in the centre of Rome as it is mentioned on easytobook, it is placed at 6-7 km from the nearest attraction point
-the rooms weren't clean enough
-the dinning room was freezing
-all in all it really isn't a four star hotel

It's definately not your 4 star custom hotel,BUT it was a pleasant stay.We've spent 7 nights,had a wonderful room at the 6th floor with a HUGE terrace,air conditioning perfect,room and bathroom well furnished,wonderful view over Rome,best thing was the location in a residential area of Rome,distant from downtown but well connected via bus and city train.Has a sport facility and swimming pool in front.Breakfast was ok,staff were ok.

Room Tip: Definately 6th floor,the 2 rooms at right as you exit elevator.

I was unlucky to stay here for a week, dont know what i was thinking. Was an absolute disaster. Got to the hotel early and was told the room was not ready ended up sitting on the side for an hour. The staff are rude, and unhelpful. The breakfast is not worth it, basically a cold buffet from the day before.
After a whole day out of the hotel, i come back to find my room door open, staff were not helpful when this occurred and very rude, luckily nothing was missing. Ended up keeping all personal belongings with me, as the cleaners did not lock the doors at all.
It looks ok when you walk in but thats it the rooms are old, cleaners do not know what they are doing and staff are unacceptable. This is not a four star hotel more of a 1* barely even that.

DO NOT STAY HERE, ITS NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!

Room Tip: Dont bother
