The cosmopolitan city of Rome is as multifaceted as they come. Whether you’re in town for art, architecture, history, fashion or food, this city truly delivers. The extensive list of must-sees here is simply staggering – from the ancient ruins of the Roman Forum and the imposing Vatican City to frescoes that have changed the course of art history. With a storied past that stretches back beyond the Roman Empire, Rome definitely deserves to be on any traveler’s wish list.
Grand Hotel Plaza is situated in the heart of the Eternal City, rubbing shoulders with designer boutiques from famous fashion houses such as Bulgari and Louis Vuitton. The interiors here are elegant throughout, and you can enjoy them while sipping cocktails to live music, dining on the open-air terrace or resting within the privacy of your chic guest room. The hotel also offers some of the city’s finest dining, so you’ll be able to enjoy the most exquisite Italian cuisine without even leaving the property.
Rooms here are tastefully furnished and come with all the comforts and conveniences you’d expect from a five-star. Superior rooms measure 323 square feet, while upgrading to a Deluxe room will provide you with an extra 100 square feet to stretch out in. Both room types offer views of the tranquil inner gardens.
In addition to 24-hour room service, the hotel offers à la carte Mediterranean cuisine, in both Mascagni and Sorelle Fontana restaurants, which are open for lunch and dinner.

You’re in good company here, as world-renowned designer stores also call this neighborhood home, including Bulgari, Tiffany and Louis Vuitton.
How to Get There
On the face of it a lovely hotel position 10/10 the roof top bar absolutely lovely . The room was far from lovely on the plus it looked over the street which was great for people watching, all the furniture was a miss match of pieces they had found from somewhere the king bed was two singles pushed together no shower just a hand held shower whilst you sat in the bath , no ironing board but when I rang reception they said they could iron a few things for me as they had a no iron policy then tried to charge me , for the price the only reason to stay in this hotel is for the position , after traveling through Europe for five weeks this was the most unimpressive hotels we stayed at , Rome was lovely sorry for the bad review.
I have recently stayed at the wonderful Grand Hotel Plaza. I was lucky to be a guest at this charming historical property, every little detail tells a story. I had a smile on my face during the entire stay.
Rooms are spacious, light, full of character, classic, but cozy, hard wood floors, persian carpets, perfect bathroom (special thanks for ETRO bathrobe and slippers, my favourite coulor), king size bed, warm lightning...everything you need and more.
Location: perfect, just in the middle of everything, in the heart of the Eternal city, few steps away from all the sights, shopping, restaurants.
Staff: friendly, helpful, kind and attentive.
Breakfast: one of a kind, breakfast room is a piece of art itself + you get delicious food, including Italian spcialities.
Will definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it to everyone, who wants true Italian experience at a hotel with history and soul.
I'm a travel expert, working for a big tour operator, I inspect lots of hotels on a regular basis, Grand Hotel Plaza is now on my priority list.
My daughter and I stayed at the Grand for 5 days. The big plus was the location - it is amazing. It really is easy to get anywhere in Rome - if you walk and use the Metro.
The hotel is 'grand' - beautiful architecture - woods and marble. It does not have the very high end tech stuff but it is an old hotel with character and charm. It is clean.
The staff work incredibly hard and are attentive albeit slightly over run with the demands of a very busy hotel.
The roof top terrace is a must for a long drink between 7-9pm - the backdrop is gorgeous whilst you watch the sun sinking to the west. We had dinner just the once.
We were very happy with the hotel which was a great landing base for all our trips and excursions. If you are desperate for an outside pool to complement you can go to the piscine delle rose at metro b (EUR Palasport) which takes 25mins.
Whilst the hotel decor and common areas were very glamorous and absolutely beautiful, the standard rooms at the hotel don't have much to offer.
Breakfast was good, with a wide variety of options, but expensive.
The hotel location was superb for those wanting a very central place, as it is around the corner from the Spanish Steps and in the heart of the shopping strip. A great location for first time visitors to this beautiful city.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and staff were very helpful. On our first day we arrived early and they arranged for an early check in despite the last minute notice.
Looking at other review, this hotel clearly divides opinion.
Let’s start with the positives. The location is terrific, just 10 minutes walk away from the Spanish Steps. It is hard not to be impressed by the grandeur of the ground floor, including the restaurant where I am enjoying a pretty decent breakfast. Finally, I have been impressed by the service.
They were probably a little short staffed on reception when I arrived yesterday evening and the wait was slightly annoying but I could not help but be impressed by the young man behind the counter. He managed to politely juggle a Japanese guest with apparently ridiculous demands for the contents of a breakfast box, an American demanding that wine glasses be brought to his room (it was hard to resist suggesting that a trip to the bar would likely provide what he wanted in a fraction of the time) and the telephone. Willing and cheery staff in the restaurant this morning.
The negatives? Well, it is the quality of the rooms that will stop me returning before this hotel has been refurbished. My room was a very decent size but the decor, furniture and fittings were well past their best. The lighting arrangements and beside the bed switches were once modern but no longer worked and I navigated the gloom of my bedroom using the light in the hall area and my phone torch. The shower worked perfectly well but the rusty rack for the shampoo etc was indicative of the overall situation.
The bed/air conditioning combo did not allow for a restful night.
