Once home to Queen Margherita of Savoy, Baglioni Hotel Regina cuts a stately figure on the Via Veneto, the backdrop to Fellini’s 1960 classic La Dolce Vita. Soaring floor-to-ceiling marble gleams in the lobby, and gilded mirrors reflect the light from the hand-blown Murano chandeliers. Elsewhere, typically Italian flourishes throw down a playful gauntlet to architectural simplicity, with bold splashes of color, patterned wallpaper and a variety of textured fabrics.
Bed and Bath
While they might be individually styled, the 118 guest rooms and suites lean heavily toward rich furnishings. Pieces of Art Deco furniture, from side tables to lampshades, are offset by vibrantly brocaded bedspreads and silk wallpaper. Some of the Deluxe Rooms are blessed with a balcony overlooking the Via Veneto, others just a view. And the bathrooms are more clean cut than inspiring, offering a shower and tub combination and wall-to-wall marble.
Step across the threshold from the lobby to the Brunello Lounge and the vibe turns from classic to eclectic in seconds. Leopard-print stools and lanterns that cast a shower of light impart a nightclub ambience. The restaurant is decked out in muted tones, and the dishes are a modern interpretation of classic Mediterranean fare — think salmon tartare marinated in vodka and spices accompanied by a Sicilian orange salad. The food is full on, and the service is watchful and discreet. The spa features a Jacuzzi, a steam bath, a sauna and a fitness center, and the treatment packages are quirkily categorized by color.
How to Get There
One of the nicest Art Deco Rooms I ever stayed in. A luxury and by all means leading Hotel of the World. The staff could not be nicer, the breakfast room could not be prettier and the room and bath not be nicer. You get a bottle of wine, water, chocolates and a little book about Italian manners. Great place, we come back.
My experience of 4 nights here was underwhelming, and I feel the hotel has several opportunities for improvement. It is currently subpar for Leading Hotels and definitely not a 5-star hotel, but the good news is the problems seem easily fixable. I was on a 5th floor "double room" that was a bedroom area and an additional bed in the living area to accommodate my family of three.
First, the bathroom: The door couldn't open all the way, there was no ventilation, the shower head was faulty, and the old hinged glass divider and lack of curtain meant the shower flooded the floor every time. This would be an ideal start for updating the rooms.
Next, the breakfast was limited and just very subpar. That said, the staff and the room in which it was served were excellent.
There was an odd split between how I felt about the staff: The front desk and restaurant were truly lovely, however the concierge sent me to a wine bar that turned out to have been closed for a few months. The friend I had tried to meet there suggested a restaurant, but the concierge insisted they didn't take reservations, which was simply not true as my friend had a reservation that night. Being too late to book is perfectly acceptable, but no need to lie about it.
Also regarding staff, someone opened my door with another hotel guest at ~2AM my first night. I believe the guest was lost and they were trying to prove it wasn't his room?? This is simply not acceptable. On the other hand, since the guest above me seemed to be having a late night party 2 nights in a row, the staff responded immediately to investigate. Like many things at this hotel, there is great potential, but a bit of work needed, too!
Perhaps I owe the guest above me an apology, because after he checked out, the noise persisted--I assume this is structural, so maybe carpets are in order. I don't know, but the noise level was difficult, and I am a New Yorker.
Overall, the room was a great size and there were some great staff members, but the place is a bit dated and just wasn't anywhere near the quality of the similarly priced hotels I booked on this trip via LHW. I wish this property luck and success in the future!
We were there 2 nights and unfortunately rain dimished the appeal of being in Rome. The hotel rooms are very attractive and make you feel special. I do prefer a shower with easy access-hard to come by. The breakfast was good-as i look back. probably better than others on this trip. The staff was outstanding, especially both concierges and reception . For us the location could have been more central to shopping areas. i think it would have been more outstanding with sunshine. I do recommend, if a little off the beaten path.
We stayed 3 nights at the Baglioni. Our suit on the 7th floor was extremely comfortable and spacious - love the bathroom, walk in closet and the comfortable bed.
The location of the hotel was great as it is only a 5-10 minute walk from the Spanish steps or an easy taxi ride to the town centre if you feel lazy.
We enjoyed having a little rest at the SPA after a long day sightseeing.
Our stay did have a few hiccups during our stay. However the two duty managers we contacted resolved them beautifully and very professionally which made all the difference and for which they deserve kudos.
I would return
Everything - location, quality of accommodations, food, service - was fabulous! Well-situated on the luxurious Via Veneto, facing the US Embassy, this is a wonderful place to stay for business or pleasure. Every person on staff exudes hospitality! Rooms and bathrooms were nicely updated, while the common areas impress with old world Italian charm, all made stylishly comfortable with modern amenities. Breakfast buffet is awesome and bar in cozy and stylish. Major sites such as the Spanish Steps and Borghese Gardens are just blocks away, as are connections to transporation systems. Many restaurants and caffes are just a stone's throw from the door, the street remains classy and quiet. Highly recommended!
