“Lovely clean friendly hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and the hotel to be great. It's on a quite street, very safe just around the corner from the American ambassy.
There are lots of great places to eat within a 5 min walk.
The hotel itself is clean, the staff are extremely helpful.
If we were to visit Rome again this hotel will be on the top of my list.

Wonderful hotel, friendly staff. Rooms beautifully decorated with traditional Italian style. Only 15 minute walk from Historic Rome centre, or buses can be caught outside the hotel. The breakfast on the roof top was lovely and you could look over Rome! concierge was very helpful too. I would recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: Never had any problems with noise and nice and quiet (6th floor)

The location of the hotel is perfect, near Spanish steps. I cannot understand why they charge for Internet... Also the aircondition was making some strange noise (hope they fix it) rome was a great city

Me and my boyfriend just came back from our five day stay at the Romanico hotel. Let me start with the positive and that would be the hotel's location. It's really easy to get to any of the Rome's main sightseeing spots from the hotel - my tip would be to take a bus or walk. The hotel is walk-able distance to the Spanish Steps and the Fountain di Trevi. Also the Villa Borghese park is near the hotel and you get really nice views of the Piazza del Popolo and the rest of Rome from up there. If you take bus 116, that will get you by the river and you can walk from there to Vatican or Trastavere. Don't bother taking the tube if you are travelling from/to the Termini station, you are better off walking (15mins) or taking a bus.

Now to the negatives - the hotel lobby is really luxurious and we were expecting the same from our room but were really disappointed when we saw the room. It looked very cheap & tacky. It did the job but for the money they charge, I was expecting more. The room looked nothing like the one on the website.
Don't ask the hotel staff for any directions or restaurant recommendations, because they were wrong every time we asked them. For example, re transport. we asked them how to get to Trastavere and were told to get a taxi (40 euro return trip) or to take a bus (which was a wrong bus btw). Luckily my boyfriend noticed that it's a wrong bus and got us on the right one. We paid 6 euros all together for the bus tickets with a bit of a walk. The staff recommended us one restaurant (sorry can't remember the name but it was the one what specialises on sea food/fish) - the food was less than average and was really overpriced - it was the worst food we had during our 5 day stay in Rome. You get better value for money even if you eat in the sightseeing spots like Trastavere.

Overall, the hotel is OK but not worth the money they charge for their rooms. I'm sure you can find better value for money elsewhere. We won't be coming back.

Dear Guests,
Thank you for sharing your comments with others! Feedbacks are really important for us. They help us to improve our standards. Our hotel is located in one of the most important and fascinating area of the Eternal City and within a few minutes walk from the most important attractions as the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and so on . Regarding the rooms, our concept is: be Unique! Each room is different from the other, all unique in terms of space, color and furniture; They all decorated in Imperial Roman style and it couldn’t be otherwise.
Concerning the bus information, the actual roots that are listed on the web site are continually updated.
We normally recommend restaurants around the area and majority of our guests are extremely satisfied with our recommendations.
With the hope to have you again as guest in the near future, we would appreciate if you could contact us in advance in order to make sure your that time in Rome will be the best and unforgettable.
We send you our best wishes.

We recently stayed at the hotel for 4 nights in July and absolutely loved it. Great value for money, all staff were so helpful and friendly. We think the next time we stay in Italy we'd like to be closer to the piazzas for eating and drinking but for our first visit to the city it was a perfect location, we walked everywhere but there were bus stops just a few metres down the road, on one day it rained we did take the bus to the basillica and it was only 6 euros for an all day ticket with unlimited stops. You can get bus/metro tickets just across from hotel so it's really easy if you did want to. Also the hotel recommended a restaurant to us called il felini, it was just round the corner and the food and service there was absolutely amazing as well. Our room was lovely and cleaned everyday, the breakfast was nice, standard coffee/tea pastries, toast etc on the terrace. We would recommend this hotel to anybody. Thank you to all there, Cath and Luke.

I had to stay an additional night in Rome because of a passport snafu and was directed to the Romanico Palace Hotel. It is just a couple of blocks from the U.S. Embassy and Via Veneto, within 15 minutes of the Spanish Steps, so it was in a great location for me. I needed assistance to book an unexpectedly needed flight from Rome to Santorini, Greece, where I would catch back up with my cruise ship, so time was of the essence. The concierge, Julio, was awesome in helping me book my flight as well as assisting me with some other needs I had. He was just great. The hotel is very nice, the room and bathroom were quite large and nicely appointed, and they offer free WiFi. Additionally, they have a lobby bar with reasonably priced glasses of wine available. All in all, my experience at this hotel was great.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. It was in a central area and within walking distance to Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. We really liked our room, it was very romantic. Staff was very nice. Didn't particularly like the elevators but all the elevators in Italy are small like that. We didn't have breakfast there because we found a nice cafe a couple of doors down with fresh sandwiches and pastry that was cheaper.

Dear Guest,
Thank you a lot for taking the time to share your nice feedback on Tripadvisor and we are truly delighted to read only great comments about our hotel following your recent and short stay that you enjoyed pleasantly with us.
The adjective “Romantic” is the best you could use, creating that magical and poetic consonance with “Romanico” which is always a pleasant music to our ears.
Not only is our location one of the most affascinating and famous in Rome, but it also allows our lovely customers to get in a few minutes to the best attractions such as Spanish Steps, Piazza Barberini, Borghese Garden which is considered as a naturally refreshing area in our Eternal City.
The cafè close to the hotel is surely nice for a quick breakfast but if you really desire to start your day in a perfectt way , you can't help trying the fantastic breakfast on the seventh floor, choosing among a large variety of food and drinks and enjoying in the meantime one of the greatest view of Rome during its sweet awakening!

MILLE GRAZIE ANCORA!

Giulio & Noemi
