What We Love

  • Near the metro and the main train station, and an easy walk to top landmarks and some of Rome's best neighborhoods
  • Gigantic rooftop terrace, complete with blue mosaic-tiled swimming pool (open late spring to early fall), with smashing views, nightly cocktails and a seafood restaurant

What To Know

  • A city tax of approximately $4 per person, per night, will be collected by the hotel at checkout
  • This is one of Rome’s larger hotels, and on one of its more heavily trafficked piazzas, so if you’re after an out-of-the-way boutique hotel, it may not be for you
  • Breakfast is not included, and the hotel’s morning meal, while copious, costs an extra $45
  • The spa and gym are quite petite. Plans are in place for a major expansion

Overview

Grand neoclassical gem on the Piazza della Repubblica, with a gigantic rooftop terrace, restaurant and pool

The Look

Neoclassical grandeur. Housed in a dramatically curved 19th-century travertine edifice overlooking central Rome’s circular Piazza della Repubblica, the Exedra welcomes guests through its front arcade and a pair of revolving doors. Inside, a soaring cream-colored lobby showcases intricate plaster moldings and a white grand piano. Up the brass-doored elevators, the 238 guestrooms are classically decorated in warm shades of brown, cream and gold; some of them are in a 15th-century annex, where exposed wooden ceiling beams and a terra-cotta-tile roof suggest its history as a papal granary.

Bed and Bath

Heavily carved, darkly stained wooden doors mark the entry to each room. They open onto an ample closet area, with the bedroom beyond. A pair of chairs, a desk and a kingsize bed sit on plush café au lait–colored carpeting, the bed emerging from an embossed crocodile leather headboard. On the walls, thick striped wallpaper surrounds large windows; a huge mirror, heavily framed in ornate gold, seems to double the room’s size. The marble bathrooms feature twin sinks, separate showers and tubs, and Etro amenities. Deluxe and Superior Rooms are nearly identical in size, layout and amenities; the difference is the view. Deluxe Rooms overlook the Piazza della Repubblica, the adjacent Via Nazionale, or the Diocletian Baths; Superior Rooms peer over an internal courtyard.

Beyond

On the ground floor, a series of warmly lit, dark wood–paneled rooms and cozy alcoves house the lobby bar, Tazio restaurant and Champagnerie Tazio, which spills out into the hotel’s arcade, with tables and chairs overlooking the piazza. In the warmer months the rooftop pool, terrace bar and restaurant offer big city views, a sunset aperitivo scene, light bites and seafood-focused meals. There’s a small spa and fitness area on the fourth floor, and a black-and-white Italian cinema–themed breakfast room on the first. Even if you’re not in town for work, it’s worth taking yourself on a tour of the basement-level meeting room spaces, where a glass floor reveals some of the ruins of the baths of the Roman emperor Diocletian.

In the Area

The hotel’s position on the Piazza della Repubblica puts it within a five- to 10-minute walk of sights including the Diocletian Baths and the cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore, as well as the city’s main train station. In addition, it’s right on one of Rome’s two metro lines, which makes the Spanish Steps, Vatican, Colosseum and Forum all easy trips. Also nearby is the relatively untouristed but beautiful neighborhood of Monti, where many students, writers and other creative types live. Here, there’s a great local aperitivo scene in the area’s main square, the Piazza Madonna dei Monti, and at neighborhood wine bars Al Vino al Vino and Ai Tre Scalini; Taverna dei Fori Imperiali is a good restaurant to book for dinner nearby.

Great place to stay in Rome!

I stayed in Palazzo Naiadi from 14 Oct to 18 Oct 18 while on vacation with my wife. We were upgraded as my wife happens to be Platinum Elite Member of Marriott and stayed in Room No 220.
The hotel is very centrally located, very near to Roma Termini station, convenient to travel from Airport and also just next to metro station for local travel to places of interest.
The room was nicely decorated, though lacked in any kind of view, with all basic amenities provided for. The buffet breakfast was also very good both in terms of spread and quality.
The staff was also very receptive and the overall experience was very good.
I would certainly recommend this hotel if the price is not the criteria.

Lovely Stay - Great Location
Reviewed 6 days ago

This is absolutely superb hotel in a great location! We loved the ambience and the staff treated us so well - everyone from the front desk, to the valet at the front to the room service, went above and beyond to make our stay so much more special!
Part of the trip, we got an upgraded room which was super nice and comfy with high ceilings (the regular room was a tad small).
The rooftop pool and restaurant make great views.
Location: The hotel is <10min walk from Termini station which made transportation so easy. From the airport we opted the limo service by the hotel which was nice. Taxis are available anytime (valet will call them for you and they're there in 2 mins). It's also very central to most of the main attractions.
Food: The breakfast was good (was free with our Marriott status), even room service was good - there are also plenty of great food options within minutes walk of the hotel.
Overall loved it and this was a great base for our Roman Holiday.

Beautiful hotel in beautiful city
Reviewed 6 days ago

Myself and my 8 year old daughter stayed here for two nights in beginning of August. We got a great corner room which was impeccable as was the hotel itself, the staff as well. The breakfast was okay but could have some improvements. The pool and bar/ restaurant there was a disappointment. Very over priced for what the quality of service and food provided. The bar tenders/ waiters were very unhelpful and not very polite or enthusiastic, which was unlike the rest of the hotels staff. And spending over $15 per drink plus food that was below the mark.

The spa was great my daughter and I had facials (I had a hydro facial which was awesome) they put us in the same room and it was reasonably priced for the level of the hotel.

Enjoyed my stay a lot aside from rooftop pool experience.

Fantastic Hotel - Perfect Location!
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed here for five nights with our son during the October school holidays, the hotel is as you would expect for a Marriott hotel, with five star service and facilities. The location was perfect too, central to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Pantheon, all only 20 minutes walk from the hotel, albeit in different directions.
