“5 star hotel, fabulous location”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I returned to the Grand Hotel de la Minerve after a 3 or 4 year hiatus. Stay here for the location and enjoy the wonderful staff and beautiful rooms. Ask for a grand deluxe room with a view of the piazza. These rooms are the size of most suites. The hotel has a new management team which has improved everything since our last stay. We will come back next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a grand deluxe room with a view of the piazza.

A stone's throw from the Pantheon - it's very central to everything. A Good daily breakfast was included. The rooftop bar was a wonderful place for our family to gather at sunset - fantastic views of the Pantheon and delish drinks. The staff was very professional & cordial. We Will definitely stay here again.

What I'm about to say is well-documented but worth repeating: The Grand Hotel de la Minerve has an outstanding location in the heart of Rome close to all of the major tourist sites and in walking distance to countless restaurants. The hotel service was terrific -- they upgraded us two levels from a junior room to a king-bed suite during our two-day August stay -- but no breakfast is provided at the hotel. The price was a bit high, as are the prices of the rooftop drinks, but don't let that stop you -- this is a great place. We were shocked at how quiet the hotel is as well -- we slept so well both nights! The rooftop garden at sunset is unmatched and a MUST SEE for anyone who wants to unwind and take in the soft breezes and amazing views of Rome.

Room Tip: "Higher floors might be quieter"

My wife and I stayed for holiday in Rome for 6 days in June 2013 at this 5 star hotel located centre of the city. For your information and reference, please share my message sent to the hotel (booking executive), expressing our thanks and satisfactory stay.

Dear Ms. Barbara Di Stefano,

I had just wanted to thank you for the warm welcome and kind hospitality during our stay in June (20-25) at the Grand Hotel De La Minerve, Rome.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the stay at your hotel.
The room facing Minerva Square that you kindly arranged was wonderful: spacious, clean and well-maintained and with a nice view of Minerva Square indeed helped our stay so pleasant and comfortable.
We enjoyed the delicious buffet breakfast and evening cocktails at the Roof Garden Bar as well.
We also want to thank your hotel staff who were all very kind and hospitable: hotel concierge Luigi was very helpful in assisting the restaurant reservations - he seems very well connected/networked with nice restaurants nearby the hotel, e.g. Clemente.

My wife and I both found the stay very conformable and pleasant.
We look forward to returning back to Rome and staying again at the Grand Hotel De La Minerve, Rome.

Thank you.

The Yabe's, Tokyo, Japan

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Minerva Square.

For a group of 12 this was excellent and the staff was very helpful in arranging such a large group. The location and the view from the roof are amazing. Having lived in Italy for 30 years I found this to be one of the best luxury hotels in the city.

I must say before I got to the hotel I was nervous reading some of the reviews on here, upon arrival however all of this was forgotten the hotel is amazing. You are within walking distance of all the main attractions and we were lucky enough to have the pantheon within view from our hotel room.
We even had a bottle of champagne and strawberries complimentary for a birthday surprise.
The roof top terrace is lovely with some great views and if you have a meal you won't regret it ours was delicious.
Lovely local places to eat as well.
Def returning

Room Tip: We had a suite over looking the square very clean

This is a lovely hotel with excellent service! The hotel is situated next to The Pantheon and in the middle of much excitement, which includes cafes, restaurants, small shops and historical sites. It is within walking distance to The Trevi Fountain and The Forum. The concierge is very conscientious and goes out of their way to make guests feel comfortable. In fact, champagne, candy and chocolates was provided because it was my birthday! If you stay at this "Grand" Hotel you won't be sorry.

Room Tip: We had a lovely suite so there was plenty of room.
