“Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We finished our week's cruise from Rome with a night in the Hotel Abruzzi. As we were only going to be there for such a short time, I booked a room in the annexe thinking that I wouldn't be worried about a view. We were upgraded when we arrived at the hotel and had a fantastic room over looking the square and its fountain, with a view of the Pantheon - and it was brilliant. As some of the other writers have said, the room was slightly small but by no means tiny - and to be honest, was probably bigger than I would have expected from a city centre location hotel. The bathroom was quite roomy with a variety of different toiletries and we also had a kettle and tea and coffee in the room which was a plus.

In the morning we were given a voucher to have breakfast in a restaurant just across the square and it was nice to sit in the sun and watch Rome wake up.

All in all we really enjoyed our short stay at the Abruzzi - the location was fantastic and it was easy to walk to the major landmarks and should we return to Rome, I would definitely book this hotel again.

As a first time traveler to Rome I thought to get something a little central and this hotel did not disappoint

Pros: Lots of places to eat nearby, large piazza next door, views of Pantheon. Staff were fantastic. Beautiful 500 / 600 year old building overlooking Pantheon.

Cons: Expensive slow(ish) internet. Room with 2 bed was a little smallish but not too bad. The rooms had only Italian power outlets and so you need to bring your own adapter (or borrow a hotel one). It could be a little hard to find and yes you need to drag your luggage up one flight of stairs as the lift does not go to ground level. The lift is TINY. One person and 2 cases would fill it!

On a personal note.. We wanted to take any of the MANY hop on - off buses that Rome offers. They all seem to take the same routes and same places to stop, but finding a stop near was TOUGH. We ended up walking to the Trevi fountain (10 min walk) where all the buses stop and so it was easy to grab one here.

Would I stay here again? Probably not. but only as it did not not suit me for the buses and the cost/availability of internet access.

If in the area and you want some free Wi Fi simply ask one of the local restaurants and most provide it. Sit, check the password and order a drink etc.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 1st floor so you do not have to drag your luggage around

In our way to Amalfi Coast we stopped inRome for only a night and could not being a better option as staying at Hotel Abruzzi. Excellent location at The Pantheon with the view of The Pantheon as well. As a family of 4 we had a 2 bedrooms apartment that was very confortable. It is all a bit petit, but very well organized, clean and tasteful. A wonderful surprise was to have breakfast at the Piazza, offer by the Hotel.

Ok, for a start, lets get this out of the way - it's opposite the Pantheon!! Ok, now to the hotel itself. Our room was small, but very clean and well equipped, and everyday our clutter was tidied by some excellent maid who we never saw!! Plenty of towels, tea and coffee, and lots of bathroom goodies, such as soap, shampoo, etc.
The reception is small, but is open 24/7, so is very handy for any late/early departures/arrivals. Everywhere is well maintained.
The only reason for not giving this hotel the full 5*, is that the reception staff changed so much that you couldn't get to know them, and some were more helpful than others.
The location is, obviously, what drew us here. It is so central, everywhere is within walking distance and the Pantheon is right there on the square. The noise from the Piazza goes on well into the night, but the windows on our room are fantastic, you open the windows and hear everything, close them and there is silence!! Amazing!!
The breakfast is at a small restaurant on the Piazza, and is plentiful and reasonably good. Cake for breakfast is my recomendation!! There is also bacon and eggs and cereal, fruit, yoghurt, etc. Coffee on tap.
Our stay in Rome was manic, no relaxing holiday was this, but it certainly was incredible!! You certainly need more than one visit to see all Rome has to offer!!

We are today checking our from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Albergo Abruzzi. This hotel has been a perfect base for our first visit to Rome. Rooms are small but well equipped. Very comfortable firm beds, very clean bathrooms, and incredible views.

I would highly reccomend this hotel and would plan on staying here again when we are lucky enough to return to Rome.

I chose this hotel because of its location, and if you book in advance you get a very good room rate, we stayed in March. The rooms were spacious and you must book a Parthenon view, the only downside to the rooms are the small bathrooms but i would not hesitate to book anywhere else when i come back to Rome. The staff were lovely and very helpful and the rooms were very clean, and it was one of the comfiest and biggest beds we have stayed in. Listening to the musicians playing in the square by the fountain outside the rooms was bliss and really put you in the mood, and the breakfast was fantastic and much nicer than the one we had when staying at a more expensive hotel in Rome! with fantastic pain a chocalat. The square had such atmosphere and the bars around the square were a fantastic place to enjoy a nice bottle of wine, with lots of excellent restaurants close by. Public transport is easy with buses near by, and you are very close to walk to the main sites, the spanish steps, the trevi fountain and the Colliseum etc. If you go when it's international womens' day you get free entrance to the sites, and free flowers when we went for a drink to one of the swanky hotels close by which was a nice touch! Can't wait to return.

I had a wonderful stay in the hotel. From the moment I first arrived, the quality of the service was outstanding. The location was magnificent, overlooking the Pantheon, and the view from my hotel room had a good view of the monument and surrounding streets. The room was comfortable and well-appointed with a firm bed and comfortable linen, and the bathroom was both clean and well fitted with new amenities including bidet. I was able to open or close a set of shutters to have privacy and fresh air over the square, or close the double glazed windows and thick curtains which cancelled out all noise from outside. The location was very convenient, being in the centre of Rome, with a taxi rank on the opposite side of the square, for quick trips to other parts of the city. Breakfast was served on the opposite side of the square, in a café. The buffet had a wide variety of food including some delicious pastries and cakes, as well as fruit, cereal, breads, eggs, and a selection of cheese, bacon and meats. I was very satisfied with the quality of the food. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, thanks to the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, particularly Antonio. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as one of the best of many I have stayed in Europe.
