“Superb Staff!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I liked this hotel! The entourage is luxurious & baroque (yes, I am aware it is faux, but who cares) and the staff is absolutely brilliant. They did everything they could to make our stay as pleasant as possible. A+.

We were a bit unlucky with the room: only Italian channels on the tv (whereas the channels-menu stays they also have BBC and CNN), the jet streams in the bathtub did not work and somehow on the second day we found our door unlockable (you could open it from the outside), but still, you don't hear me complaining.

The hotel was a bit farther away from Piazza Barberini than we anticipated on, but we did find some nice places around the hotel. There is a lovely and affordable Irish pub a just 150 meters from the hotel (we found the bar pretty expensive), and some nice restaurants, too.

Stayed at this hotel for a two night city break.

The plus points:

Hotel is central and within easy walking distance of the via veneto.

The staff are helpful and speak good English.

The rooms are clean and big enough for a couple of nights.

The breakfast is a selection of cold buffet and was fine for what we needed.

The style of the hotel is kind of 'faux roman' with everything painted to look old. It kind of amused us more than anything !!!

The downside:

We had asked for rooms near to our friends. We had the 2 nd floor with a small balcony and they had the 4th floor with a view of a brick wall and some pipe work ! So request a balcony if u want one!

Our toilet kept constantly blocking and always left a drain smell in the room !

The bar does not stock everything on display. Some of them are empty bottles or boxes....

Nice hotel and fine for a city break.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony if u want one. some rooms have an internal view.

This was my third trip to Italy, so I've had a few experiences with other hotels there. I must say, this hotel was amazing. It was on he northeast side of the city, about a 10 minute walk to Trevi Fountain.

First, location. Location was great because it was off the beaten path from the hustle and bustle of touristy attractions. It was a quiet area with tons of good restaurants around it. It was about a 5 minute walk to the Capuchin Crypt and the Barberini square (which is also where the metro is).
It was about 2 blocks from the Borghese gardens which are just absolutely lovely, so overall, if you want to be in a quiet area where you can relax after a long day, this hotel is perfect.

Our room:
We upgraded to the Luxury Suite while we were there and let me tell you, it was worth every single penny. It was the corner suite that had an outside jacuzzi and overlooked the city. We even had the pleasure of seeing fireworks from out balcony, which was magnificent. The room was gorgeous and had all the amenities I needed. The only thing I found was disappointing was the wifi access from the room. My life revolves around having the internet and having internet access, so that was the only negative thing I have to say.
Other than that, the bathroom was spotless, the shower had jet massagers, and the actual room was perfect for the two of us.

The hotel:
The staff were so incredibly helpful while we were there! Everyone was so nice and so willing to help us out with whatever we needed. The hotel had a bar where we could sit and enjoy wine or even a mixed drink and just relax. Once again, let me say the staff were great!

Overall:
Everything about this hotel is spot on. It is unique, gorgous, and the staff are so great! The rooms, although not as big as American rooms, are still great. Who needs a big room anyways when you're just sleeping and relaxing there!

The only thing I would wish to change is the wifi. There is wifi access but it is kind of quirky and doesn't work as well as I would have wished. If the wifi would have been better, this hotel would have had 5 stars from me.

Overall, I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Upgrade to luxury suite for the best view and romance

I recently had a short holiday in Rome with my mum and my sister. We'd not been on holiday together for a while and booked our trip via lastminute.com and stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. It was our first time in Rome.

This hotel was absolutely perfect for us.

Location: It was located within reasonable walking distance of all the main tourist attractions in the city and plenty of good restaurants within a short walking distance. The view from the restaurant at the top of the hotel offered a fantastic view across the city

Ambience: The decor was a comfortable mixture of sumptuousness and modernity. The hotel was well decorated and maintained well throughout the building. Our room, containing two double beds, was spacious, uncluttered light and airy whilst also offering a decorative interior design and artistic detail to make the room seem a bit special unlike the traditional, predictable bland hotel interiors that you see so often. The room was very clean, all of the electrical goods worked as did all the plumbing which was well maintained.

The staff: The staff were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. Giulio Fantozzi was very helpful when we were organising a day trip to a neighboring village in the area. He recommended Bracciano, along with details as to how to get there, which was an excellent day out.

The food: We only had breakfast at the hotel but the food that we did have offered a good variety of continental breakfast foods. It set us up for the day ahead nicely. The coffee was lovely.

I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Stayed for 4 nights for our first trip to Rome. Really enjoyed it. This hotel is spotless, welcoming and accommodating. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful, without exception. They were brilliant at helping us find the best ways to get about the city, with the Metro station being minutes away. Would stay here again when we visit Rome.
