With an enviable spot on one of Rome’s chicest and most elegant streets, the Majestic is a fabulous base for exploring the city. It’s been the hotel of choice for A-listers since it opened in the 1880s, and that retained sense of old-world elegance continues to be a big part of its charm. Beyond its Carrara marble lobby with club chairs and mirrored walls is all manner of Victorian furniture, gilded mirrors, and vintage photos (many depicting the hotel’s famous guests). Spacious rooms have hardwood floors, lacquered white furniture, and a smattering of antiques; bathrooms are floor-to-ceiling white marble. Anyone ready to splurge should book the decadent Via Veneto suite, which has two bathrooms, a separate living room, and a terrace that features a six-person whirlpool and an actual gazebo.
In the Area
The Majestic is located on Rome’s fabulous Via Veneto, stuffed to the brim with chic boutiques and cafés. A guest could stroll along here calling buongiorno to store security guards all day, but, after a coffee at the historic Café Doney, it will eventually be time to move on. The Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain (legend says those that throw in a coin ensure a return trip to Rome) are each just ten minutes walk away. If it’s a sunny day, head to the Villa Borghese, a lush landscaped garden filled with lakes, museums, and centuries-old villas. For explorations further away, guests can hop on the metro at Barberini, two minutes from the hotel.
How to Get There
Should you have the pleasure of visiting The Eternal City for business or pleasure, make it an unforgettable visit and book into the Majestic Hotel.
Located in elegant Via Veneto and handy to delectable shopping and breathtaking attractions. To mention but a few, you are minutes’ walk away from Villa Borghese Gardens (600m); the Spanish steps (900m); Sistina theatre (250m); the famous Trevi Fountain immortalized by Federico Fellini in the movie “La Dolce Vita” with Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg (950m); 1.6km from the Pantheon, Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona; and 900m from Via del Corso 2km shopping strip.
The promise held within this hotel is obvious the moment you step inside the foyer. You are welcomed as befits a hotel in this category and ushered to your room. A junior suite is highly recommended to unwind and relax in spacious luxury, where you will want for nothing. We have had the good fortune of staying in many hotels of this 5 star standard (none of which ever disappointed) but the junior suite at this hotel is Majestic indeed! You will have to tear yourselves away to explore the magnificence that always was and always will be Rome.
Beds are the last word in comfort; airconditioning is perfect; bathroom is well appointed and again, everything works with clockwork perfection - not always the case even in the best hotels.
Refreshed and restored, head down to breakfast which is served in a magnificent room. The buffet is varied, abundant and everything is as it should be – this is indeed a fabulous start to your Roman day of work or play.
Staff are unfailingly professional, helpful, friendly and polite. We simply cannot fault anything about the Majestic and will certainly stay here the next time we have the pleasure of visiting Rome.
as we were going on a cruise trip so this hotel was booked by the seven seas company > the hotel is an old piece of art and the way it is built > they still have one old lift made of wood which unfortunately got broken just about we were checking in had to climb the 4 floors by stairs and our luggage came to our room an hour later.> the rooms though not very big were comfortable> for one night was not bad the breakfast in the morning the typical Italian but ok> the staff were very cooperative and courteous
Beautiful WOW factor hotel oozing with glamour and charm, stunning lounge area. Situated in a quiet location within easy walking distance to all the major attractions.
We upgraded to a superior room which was on the small side.
No tea/coffee facilities in the room, this became a real real issue especially when breakfast was 30 euros pp.
Under Italian H&S law, no iron in room
Had a fabulous birthday weekend but wouldn't go back
The hotel is in a good location and is pretty and clean, however the noise is equivalent to a drumline mixed with an organ coming and playing at the foot of your bed. No sound machine can drown out the noise. I called the front desk and they said the music would stop in 5 minutes, but it lasted another hour. So it was 1AM and music was still going. They did not have another room. Saturday night as I type this, it is happening again. I am checking out early due to a death in my family and wasn't offered any compensation for the final night. I will not be returning and if you enjoy sleep, I would not stay here.
Stayed for three nights in October.
This was a wonderful stay in an elegant hotel. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, and the hotel location was perfect for the Metro and walking to the sights.
Hope to return one day!
