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
The hotel is an IHG property and I'm in their top tier and it was just ok. It was centrally located for those who like to walk... 20 min to the Vatican and 30 to the colosseum. Didn't take the package with breakfast as it was available close by. The room was small even though I got upgraded. The one snag was the AC. Now Rome is hot during the summer and like a giant collective we were all one the one temperature setting - problem was it was hotter in my room than the corridor, that and infrequent room make ups resulted in an average rating, given the over €300/night price tag.
We stayed here for 5 nights and loved every moment. The location is perfect to walk to most of the sights of Rome. We stayed in the family suite which was decorated really nicely, was large and we had 2 bathrooms which was an extra bonus. The whole family enjoyed using the Turkish Baths at the end of a hot day walking around Rome.
The breakfast selection included everything you could think of, and the setting in the court yard was a great way to start the day. It was also great to sit on the rooftop bar at night and enjoy a drink taking in all the sights. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful meeting all our needs. We will definitely stay here again!
We arrived late in the evening and was warmly greeted, check in as always was fast an efficient, offered complimentary drinks in the roof top bar, we dropped our bags and headed up for a night cap.
The rooftop bar is a good addition to the other facilities, the staff were a little slow to serve and maybe a little surly, we put this down to being late.
The room was nice, slightly smaller than I imagined, the bathroom was small but equipped with all you would need with lots of complimentary products.
The room, bathroom and hotel was clean, very clean even.
The breakfast is an american style buffet, very well stocked with great wide and varied choice.
We didn't eat in the restaurant, we did find it strange that the ground floor bar was never open and even when guests were sitting on the ground floor watching Football on the TV or socializing we had to go to the 6th floor to get drinks, I think a bit of poor managements there.
The location is good, quite close to all the main attractions, short walk to the bus stop and some very good local restaurants/cafes.
Check out was simple, but we did find the Receptionist a little dismissive, maybe its an Italian thing !
All in all we would recommend.
This place is not cheap, but it is worth treating yourself. An easy walk from the Piazza Navona, St Peter's or the Castel Sant'Angelo, the location is amazing. Despite the central location the hotel is in a quiet back street so noise is not a problem at all. In fact, the highlight of the hotel is the amazing tranquility of its rooftop restaurant and bar. From here you can enjoy delicious meals or relax with a drink and watch the sun set across the rooftops of Rome. The service is stellar! I checked in before lunch and my room was not ready, but they asked me to take a seat, put the room cleaning on priority and called me over within less than 15 minutes to give me my key. The room itself was clean, stylish and comfortable. I would definitely return here next time I want to treat myself in Rome.
My wife and I just stayed there for our honeymoon, and we had an incredible experience! First, the hotel service was extremely helpful, and they provided a complimentary bottle of Champagne and an all-inclusive mini bar as part of our honeymoon celebration. Second, the hotel is in a great location...being walking distance from all of Rome's main attractions (i.e., Vatican City, Colosseum, Pantheon, Roman Forum, etc.), while also being close to great food and entertainment. Take advantage of the short walk to Trastavere, just across the bridge, where there are great food and drink spots for younger adults and/or couples.
