“Comfortable base from which to explore Rome”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights in May when on our first trip to Rome. The hotel is located near Via Veneto, a lovely affluent area in which to be situated, with nice restaurants nearby. It is in walking distance of the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain and is also well located for the Metro and generally getting around. Given its fabulous location the price makes this hotel a good find. It certainly wasn't the nicest hotel we've stayed in (the decor needs updating and the walls are paper thin!) but the room was functional and there were some nice little touches (i.e. slippers, bathrobes etc). The buffet breakfast was adequate (but not a huge amount of choice) and the staff helpful and pleasant.

If you are traveling alone or with your significant other you should stay at the Ludovisi Palace. If you are traveling with a group of 36 or more people, you need to stay here. Just completed a cruise that departed from Rome with a large group from Hawaii. 37 people all wanted to check-in at ~9:30 am after 24 hours in the air. The Ludovisi Palace was exceptional in welcoming and accommodating most with rooms immediately or very soon afterwards. The rooms are small based on US standards but have all the expected amenities in the room. Daily breakfast (Included for our group) was bountiful and delicious. (Loved the Nespresso coffee machine!) On the day of departure, those same smiles were present on the staff when 37 people all needed to check-out at once. (Hopefully those smiles were for our stay, not our departure...) I give the Ludovisi my highest recommendation.

Room Tip: The Hotel has an open, but unattractive courtyard providing air to the inner rooms. Ask for a room...

On March 9,2013 I was one in a group of thirteen New Jersey City University students and two professors who had the pleasure of staying at this hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted with warmth and friendliness . The entrance was adorned with huge potted plants that welcomed you into the lobby. The staff from the desk clerk to room service were very efficient .They went beyond the call duty to ensure that the needs of the group were met. Each morning we were welcomed to the smell of a complimentary breakfast-another plus, which included an assortment of fresh breads and pastry, eggs , fruit , meat and a variety of hot and cold beverages. I am not a coffee drinker, however, i quickly developed a taste for the cappuccino. I loved the window shutters that added character to the rooms.The rooms were small compared to hotel rooms in the US. This was not a problem because the service was great.

Room Tip: The laundry service is very expensive,about ten euros for a tee shirt.

Stay here and no where else. This is 5 minutes from the spanish steps. all other hotels which are near the spanish steps are very very expensive. this is a famous well located hotel with great facilities. the street in which this hotel is located is named after the hotel and the area of this hotel is very very porsche. Rome is a expensive city to find accommodation near the spanish steps. Staying anywhere else is not a good idea as commuting can be problematic. Great staff helpful people and very very well located.

Any hotel is just bricks and mortar,etc. but what makes it special are the people inside. This 50+ room hotel in the Via Veneto region of Rome has the very best staff I have ever met. Happy,courteous,helpful,knowledgeable are just a few of the adjectives that spring to mind. If you are North American then the rooms are European in size, but apart from sleeping and washing I don't do much else in the bedroom ( my wife censored the next part). Breakfast area is compact but there is sufficient supplies of varied foods,dishes,etc to satisfy. It is the general knowledge,help and expertise of the concierges that has given us one of the best holidays of our lives. Plenty of restaurants in the locality but do ask the concierge for recommendations.

Nice hotel, not far from good shopping and tourist sites. Very small room but it served it's purpose. Bathroom was nice but also compact. Big classic old Italian windows that you could open and watch the street below. No English channels on TV but we weren't there for that. Great breakfast buffet. No restaurant but there was a great pizza take out across the street and an awesome Italian family restaurant around the corner with sidewalk tables that all the locals went to...not a meal to be rushed!

We (couple, no kids) booked this hotel after a friend recommended it. Small, simple, quaint, great service, very clean rooms! Overall a very well maintained hotel.

They do a good job at keeping it very traditional with actual room keys (no magnetic cards), which you drop off at the front desk for safe keeping while you're out of the hotel. Andrea at the front desk is quite the character and was very helpful and pleasant.

Breakfast was very good, scrambled eggs, cheeses, meats, breads, jams, nutella, fresh fruit, juice machine and great coffee/espresso machine.

Within 5 minutes walking distance from the Spanish Steps. Great restaurants and shopping within 10 minutes of the hotel.

I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends and family.
