“Well worth the money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

This Hotel is expensive "YES"..but worth every cent, if you are making your stay a special occasion in Rome, please consider the Minerva, it is an outstanding property, fantastic location, just around the corner from the Pantheon(we could see it clearly from our window).
The rooms are generous by European standard, all mod cons, great service, really lovely.
We had an error occur while checking in..and the manager could not be helpful enough..we received an upgrade for the trouble.
Please consider this hotel, you wont be sorry.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the upper floors,with a view of the square.

You CANNOT beat the location of this hotel. Everything is within walking distance. The deluxe rooms were large and very clean. The gym was a bit small. Had no problem with the internet connection-there was a fee. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is my second time here and would stay here again.

I`ve been to Gran Hotel de la Minerva last july with my husband and 2 children aged 9 and 11. The location is really great - a few steps away from the Pantheon, and a walking distance from a handful of Rome touristic sites. We stayed in 2 connecting rooms, fully refurbished, big bathrooms, good showers, scenic views from our windows over Piazza de la Minerva and Le elefantino. Continental breakfast is pricey, but there are many options right outside the hotel. The staff was helpfull when I needed, (but I speak italian), A good experience, overall.

Room Tip: For scenic views, ask the front rooms, but there can be some noise at night.

We have stayed at the Minerve hotel several times now, primarily due to its amazing location and its fun rooftop bar. This stay we were given a really nice room with interior ,quiet , balcony (#449) , king bed, good size room and nice marble bath. Beautiful bedding and nice bathroom supplies. Sadly, the rooftop bar we anticipated was closed for a party so we chose to eat at their dining tables. Pricey meal, not as good a value as the bar, nor was food noticeably sophisticated compared to all the good local restaurants. Skip the meal and wait for the sunset rooftop bar experience. Staff was pleasant, rooms clean, hallway rugs need updating, but overall, the ability to walk to the Pantheon with cappucinos on the square, and on to Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, and all the alleyways to Forum or Piazza di Spagna make it a treat.

Room Tip: We liked room 449 with interior balcony, quiet and several windows.

Dear guest,
Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoy our roof top bar, sometimes we have private parties on it but very seldom we close it totally for the other guest. It can happen two or three times a year. The prices at the bar and at the restaurant are different, due to several reasons, the menus are different and so is the service offered, a bit less formal at the bar than at the restaurant . But the food is prepared by the same staff so the quality is the same and so is the passion in cooking it. The “not too sophisticated” is a precise choice of our Chef , to let the natural flavours of high quality material come out of skilfully prepared plates.
Again thank you for letting us know your impression , we hope that you will have the opportunity to come back to us
Best regards

This would have to be the best hotel we have stayed in while travelling anywhere in Europe. Not only is it central (backs onto the Pantheon) but the interior decore and charm of this beautiful hotel are just outstanding. The room we had was magic. The desk staff, hotel staff and hosuekeeping staff were all polite and any problems we had (albeit not worth writing about) were resolved immediately. Our biggest disappointment was probably our last night there when we booked for dinner at their rooftop bar and restaurant. The food and drinks were great but the ambience was a bit hit and miss. The piano player was intermittent with the music but not an issue. Our main disappointment was with one of the waitresses. She was just rude. ignorant and had attitude like she did not want to be there. But that is a minor issue to whole experienc of staying in this grand hotel. If we are back in Rome this is the place we will be staying at again.

Room Tip: Book a Junior Suite. They come with an outdoor patio area and outdoor furniture. great in the aftern...

This hotel was not cheap, but it was well worth the approx $250+ we paid for each night. The location is perfect -- walkable to the coliseum, trevi fountain, spanish steps and piazza navona. If it wasn't so hot, we could have also walked to the Vatican. Our room was very large and comfortable -- our friends staying at different hotels couldnt' get over the size. The staff was very accommodating -- offering suggestions for meals and helping us book restaurant and train reservations. Would definitely stay here again. Be sure to go up to the roof one night for drinks -- we enjoyed a great sunset, amazing view and live music

Room Tip: ask for a room that looks out onto the Pantheon

We we in Rome October 3rd thru the 8th for our honeymoon.. Everyone that worked at the hotel
was extremely nice and helpful. They allowed us to check in 5 hours before normal check in.
The location was perfect for our trip. The rooms were nice and clean.The breakfast was included, otherwise would have been overpriced. Again, the level of customer service was excellent and when we go back to Rome we will certainly stay there again
