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
The Hotel Majestic Roma is a perfect example of old world luxury with all of the modern conveniences of a 5-Star hotel. The large rooms have high ceilings, beautifully appointed marble bathrooms, huge king-sized beds and the hottest water, on demand, of any hotel we have ever visited. The staff are accommodating and the service is impeccable. Plus, their breakfast buffet is second to none. We highly recommend this hotel on the Via Veneto for your next visit to Rome.
We saw the outdoor terrace at the Hotel Majestic while looking for somewhere to have a drink after exploring Rome.
We were very impressed with the hotel location (on the legendary Via Veneto), history and facilities. Many celebrities have stayed there over time.
We had excellent and friendly service from the people there from the doorman to the bar and restaurant staff.
We recommend a visit (or stay) at the Hotel Majestic while in Rome.
We stayed a long weekend with an old car club and were royally treated. From Bruno helping me get the car parked to Faisal and all the concierge staff, we were thoroughly welcomed. Breakfast, dinner, bar - all the staff were on it, personal and helpful, frequent or not as required. The ambiance of the hotel is definitely 50s but totally clean and new. Only 3 suggestions. Free bottled water every day please, don't change the towels every day and a rear exit to make the walk to the car park easier. Parking Ludovici is close as the crow flies and the staff there were most helpful. This is Claridges style service.
Wether staying with a baby was a problem or any other cause,we got the worst possible room.
No toiletries,flooding water in the bathroom,no toilet paper.
However....the location is excellent,the building is beautiful and the people very kind.Service at Front Desk very poor
5 stars not deserved.
I was very happy to find that this hotel in the Center of Rome - it has a very comfortable rooms, spacious and with excellent beddings, very well equipped bathrooms and great an friendly stuff. Lovely breakfast , specially if taken on terrace . Near by are very many really good Restaurants and shops and you can walk to historical Center of Rome.
