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.
Superior rooms are chic, with monochromatic décor and more than a passing nod to 1970s design. 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
Currently staying in the Pulitzer hotel right near the Marconi Metro station which means we are only 15mins from the hotel door step to the Termini or Colesseum.
It’s very modern and extremely clean, spotless in fact . We are in a Superior room and it is very large. It has to be as the bed is huge. The decor is spot on going with its modern image.
Off to breakfast shortly ...
Only little gripes . The sink is a large trough like thing but nothing at same level to put your bits and pieces. We have a shower over the bath which is absolutely fine but the bath is a little narrow making manoeuvring a bit awake are. Also as shower is on the side not end wall it needs angling straight down or it will hit the shower glass and cause a puddle! But you learn those things very quickly. Good number of nice fresh towels ... useful.... . Did have to ask reception for the bathrobes mentioned but they arrived before I got back to the room !!
Balcony is fine but it’s March and not perfect for a quiet drink in the afternoon or evening right now , but would do in height of summer . I also took a peak at the hot tub , it’s there but not my thing anyway😂
Off to breakfast expecting it to be up there with the rest of the hotel. Oh and staff very friendly .
When I come back to Rome, this is my first trip, I will come here as I stay with things that I know are good.
One down side but get that everywhere , unthoughtful young stayers who at 1am thought it was ok to have a loud conversation just outside our room and just let their doors shut or actually shut them hard themselves.. pleased to say not English 😊
I could not fault this hotel at all! We stayed over NYE and the rooftop had excellent views of the fireworks from all over the city.
As mentioned in most of the reviews on here, the hotel is a short walk to the Marconi station and in around 5 stops you can get to the Colosseum.
The staff are very friendly and so helpful, the dog is a brilliant mascot too.
We didn’t have any meals in the hotel, so I can’t really comment. There is a small convience store and a local cafe around a 2 minute walk from the hotel so we were able to have breakfast there and get a few snacks/drinks for the room.
I can’t way to stay here again!
Great location half way between the centre and the airport. The subway is close so it is easy to move around. Fiumicino airport is a mere 20 minutes drive away. Rooms are modern and spacious (not common in Rome). Break fast is good and good value for money. A special mention for the restaurant: top notch food to be tried ! The friendly dog walking around is the hotel mascotte ! Adds a touch of uniqueness to the place. Looking forward to swim in the pool in summer !
We stayed at the Pulitzer for 3 x nights, myself and partner with two children 16&12.
From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome and the hotel doggy Joe just made the hotel feel more homely.
The rooms were spotless and the beds very comfy.
Bathroom and shower great equipped with shampoo, conditioner,body wash and body lotion and soap.
Rooms are made up daily and plenty of soft white towels, tissues and a hairdryer.
The rooms were also very warm.
Breakfast was buffet ... all you can eat !
Abundance of cereals, fresh fruit, breads and toasts plus a cooked breakfast and cold eggs, hm and cheese plus fresh pastries and even s pancake machine which the kids loved.
Marconi metro 3-4 minute walk from hotel tickets to get into centre were €1.50 each.
Worth taking plenty of change as some of the ticket machines do not take larger notes.
We got a white taxi from airport €50 and hotel arranged taxi transfer back for €45 which was a much bigger vehicle and more comfortable.
The surrounding area is not good to walk around after 11ish which we found during the first night as a few hookers around doing their thing.
There a a few really good Roman eateries near to the hotel.
We had such a great experience at this hotel the staff were warm and friendly check out was at midday and we could leave our luggage in the store room as we had a late flight.
Thank you for a fab stay would highly recommend 😀👍🏻
Lovely warm welcome particularly from Joe the spaniel. However no Prosecco was offered on arrival which was a shame as this was stated as an offer on my booking. However the room was ready early so that was a bonus. Great room with a lovely terrace which was huge. Small room but with all necessary amenities. Immaculately clean and great slippers. Plenty of hanging space and lots of hot water. Unfortunately no English channels but access to You Tube meant that we could find something to watch after a long day sightseeing. Convenient location metro very close. Tickets €12.50 for 48 hours use which was perfect. Breakfast very good fresh and plentiful lots of choice. Great friendly staff although it would have been helpful if the football wasn’t constantly on the TV to get more details when I was asking for directions to the airport for our return home. The information we were given wasn’t helpful as we had to find an alternate route. We managed this on our own so it was fine.
Tip they have mobile charges which they rent out for free. Wish we had known on our visit.
