Set on the historic Via Giulia, once home to artists like Raphael, this 64-room hotel is a study in Italian design, from the stylish black-and-white framed architectural photographs to the white leather banquettes and exposed stone walls. Within strolling distance of some of Rome’s most iconic sights — the Piazza Navona, St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican — this home away from home lures sightseers back after a long day out with blandishments like a well-stocked library, wine bar and cigar lounge. The piece de resistance? The rooftop bar, where you can sit with cocktail in hand while watching the sun set over the Eternal City.
In the Area
What’s not in the area? Get your bearings in the impressively long Piazza Navona, where you can admire Bernini’s handiwork in his ornate fountains, then head to the city’s most famous gusher, the fabulously Baroque Trevi Fountain, where you can take your best shot with the rest of the world’s tourists. You’ll need to refuel after that, so head around the corner to the legendary Al Moro for sublime antipasti and pasta before heading to one of this ancient metropolis’s newest gems, the Zaha Hadid-designed MAXXI Museum, a must-see journey through the 21st-century art world.
How to Get There
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while touring Rome and visiting family. Firts let me say I loved this hotel and would stay there again but I do want to also give some feedback.
- Location - great neighborhood, walkable to the river, plaza navona (close) and a good but quick walk to other key places you want to be. It is a lovely real neighborhood of Rome with a handful of smaller boutique hotels, nice homes, a school, shops, etc. Super cozy lovely area.
- Hotel rooftop - great bar and views
- Cosy room, comfortable bed
- Nice, extensive breakfast spread
- Nice staff, good service
- outlets near bed
- small reading lights
- The bathroom layout was weird and slightly annoying - the toilet in our room was set up side by side with a bidet. Minimally the bidet and toilet should be reversed. Better yet bidet eliminated to give more space. The toilet is set up in such a way that your knees are under the sink when you sit and I'm average height. The shower is cramped and like old hotels in Europe, is a big step up to get in/out with no grab bars (I'm not old or disabled in any way I found it awkward. Garbage was cramped behind the toilet and no real counter space. In a nut shell - they should tear out this existing bathroom and better use the square feet/meters in a better layout. They have the space they need to use it way better. I've seen some smaller city hotels use cubbies, drawers or hooks to make up for counterspace in a positive way
- No outlet in the bathroom - had to dry my hair at the desk while squinting to see in mirror in bathroom
- No place to really put items near the bed. Land line phone behind headboard was awkward. May be a little flip down shelf for phone/glasses/watch at night?
We stayed here for 2 nights late Sept after an extended Europe trip and thought it was perfect. We like to walk and found this was the perfect location for us. Room and facilities were very clean. Room at night was quiet. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were even surprised by a thoughtful gift from the General Manager who had learned we were celebrating a big anniversary. We won't hesitate to stay here next time in Rome.
This is my favourite hotel in Rome. It's very modern, stylish, elegant but unpretentious, in a converted 16th century palazzo by Donato Bramante, and in a street lined with palazzos of that era. Via Giulia is just off the very busy tourist precincts, but just a few minutes walk from the main sites. The hotel's website will tell you all you need to know about it and the location, so I won't go on about that ... and it's accurate. All rooms a beautiful, spotless, and modern, and I've never heard noise from adjoining rooms nor plumbing. The courtgarden for breakfast is quiet, and so very, very perfect. The roofterrace for dinner is superb too: church bells ring, and the sun sets with St Peter's dome as a backdrop. And the staff are, without exception, wonderfully friendly and accommodating.
I go here every time I'm in Rome, which is almost every year. I find that, particularly in the hot months, Rome is cooler closer to the Tiber than being around the Corso area, or up higher above the Spanish Steps. Can't wait to be back there, it's that good.
