Italy’s glamorous capitalis simply unbeatable when it comes to ancient architecture, sophisticated boutiques, mind-blowing cuisine and urbane café culture. Tucked away in its modern EUR district (Rome’s financial hub), south of the city center, Hotel Pulitzer makes for a quiet and convenient base for exploring the Eternal City’s sensational cultural fabric. There’s a metro station just steps from the hotel, so you can easily experience this captivating city in all its glory, from the mighty Colosseum to the majestic Sistine Chapel.
Back at your boutique home base, you’ll be living an Italian designer’s dream. This sleek, four-star hotel boasts sharp, urban-chic styling and cool 70s-inspired décor – a stylish combination that helped Hotel Pulitzer scoop a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. The property packs a lot into its petite package; in addition to its 83 rooms, there’s an elegant restaurant, a roof-terrace spa area and a ground-floor fitness area, all coming together to create a place where you can live out all your Hepburn fantasies, with a touch of Italiano flair.

Plush furnishings, dark parquet flooring and stylish modern artooze cool sophistication, while the en-suite bathrooms feature a modern flip on 1920s New York styling, with miniature black-and-white ceramic tiling and spacious walk-in showers.
The elegant Paparazzi Restaurant is perfect for a relaxing lunchtime antipasto, a romantic candlelit meal or a refreshing aperitif. Lounging in postmodern glitz, you can expect traditional Italian cuisine of the highest order. The Garden Bar roof terrace, extending out from the restaurant, allows for al-fresco dining and cocktails.
The fifth-floor surprise is a panoramic terrace complete with a Jacuzzi (March-November; weather permitting) and a solarium. Here, you can take in stunning city vistas and enjoy a tranquil moment away from the tourist trail. And don’t worry about missing your workout routine – the ground-floor gym has plenty of cutting-edge equipment.
Hotel Pulitzer lies to the south of the city center, in Rome’s main business area. Among the neighborhood’s austere marble and limestone architecture, you’ll find the imposing Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana. Of course, a short metro ride into Rome’s cosmopolitan center brings you to all the iconic showstoppers: the Colosseum, Pantheon, Sistine Chapel, Trevi Fountain and much, much more.
How to Get There
Stayed three nights mid July for a conference. Everything really nice. Great air conditioning, very nice room with beautiful bathroom. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice lounge and bar.
Not a good neighborhood. Would not walk alone at night. Many prostitutes out on the street.
although the neighborhood seems a bit shady, it is still only 4 min walking to the metro and within 10 min you are at the Colosseum. This probably makes the price affordable.
Welcomed by very friendly staff in an air conditioned and spotless lobby.
The room was clean, tidy and well designed (as is the rest of the hotel). The hotel includes a bar and Jacuzzi on the roof.
The breakfast had some options for glutenfree and was overall plentiful. (THEY HAVE A PANCAKE MACHINE)
The price reasonable and would go again when getting a good deal
My boyfriend had booked this hotel for my birthday for 3 nights. As soon as we arrived the service was excellent. The lady at the reception was welcoming and bright. We got shown to our room which was ground 0, and had full access to the terrace. The room was lovely and clean and the air con was incredible in the 34 degree heat. We had lovely stay and was always greeted at reception regardless if we was leaving or coming back.
The hotel itself is in the Marconi area which is a 10 minute metro ride from the Colosseum.
The walk to the metro is a small 5 minute walk and the area isn’t the nicest we have seen in Rome, but friendly. I did read a trip advisor review about seeing ‘ladies of the night’, we did see one, whom was at the opposite side of the road and didn’t seem to bother anyone. You will get that in any major City, especially a Capital.
Room Service was delicious and the room is stocked with a mini fridge, fresh towels, toiletries and even a mini beauty kit (cotton pad, nail file etc). I would definitely return as it is a quiet location, a lovely atmosphere, amazing staff and a beautiful hotel. I just wish we had a longer stay! Thank-you Hotel Pulitzer.
Stayed here for a day whilst connecting to Florence. The reception, quality of the rooms and cleanliness was impeccable. I think we had a suite room and loved the balcony and bed. Breakfast was devine. The metro is about 2mins down the road so it’s super convenient and there’s a little grocery near the hotel that is affordable for drinks, wine, etc. if you don’t want to pay the hotel prices which are still affordable. Also suggest you take their tour brochures as we found tours much more expensive at other places when we returned to Rome. Wish we had more time here but you definitely won’t go wrong.
8 days is enough time to gauge an accurate review. The room was a slightly larger deluxe room and it was very clean and it was large enough for a couple. No street noise. The room size in the center of Rome would be $1000 AUD + to get something of an equivalent size and quality.
Bar and breakfast area are good, we got breakfast included and it was very nice. The atmosphere is relaxed with friendly helpful staff. The most important staff member is called Joe Cocker and he makes an effort to welcome you each day.
The location is on a the b metro line Marconi station is 200 meters from the hotel it takes 12 min to reach termini and the wait time is 4 mins. Metro 7 day pass was 24 euro. Cost 22 euro to reach the Vatican by taxi.
Good Hotel and with it being only 12 mins away from the centre of Rome its great. If you want to return to the hotel late at night just take a taxi to the door.
