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
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!
I am so sorry we spent too much money on this luxury hotel. The staff is snooty and condescending. It's obvious that they cater to a wealthy foreign clientele. Our room came with a 12oz bottle of water for us to share. The drains in the bathtub and sink were nonfunctional. I asked for the light to be replaced above the bathroom sink and it never was.
I asked, upon arrival, for our breakfasts to be omitted since we would be seeing the sights and not available to partake. I was told, "It's not our fault that you will not be here for breakfast." Not the service one would expect from a Five Star Hotel!
The Majestic is a very elegant hotel. Top notch staff, eager to help. The breakfast buffet was very nice, you can eat on the terrace or dining room. The terrace was very charming. Our room was spacious, with a very comfortable king bed and linens. Bathroom was a nice size too with a tub/shower combo. Large towels! Loved the location, close to Spanish Steps and great restaurants.
