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
Hotel rooms were great always very clean. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Hotel had a doggo which made our stay more homely. Hotel staff assisted in booking taxis, trips and tours. Only down side to hotel is it’s location as it is roughly 25 euros each time in a taxi to centre of Rome. Hotel is not a walkable distance from main city attractions.
Stayed at Hotel Pulitzer Roma for 6 nights and had a fabulous time! Right from when we entered the hotel we were warmly welcomed by staff at reception who then directed us to our room. Our room was spotless and the perfect size for us with a little terrace as well! Beds were comfortable, we weren’t disturbed by any noise and the rooms were cleaned well daily! There’s a small shop and cafe just down the road from the hotel and it’s very close to the metro stop Marconi which took about 15 minutes to get into the centre of Rome! Overall excellent value for money and would definitely stay again.
I stayed with my family for 5 nights , we had two rooms 217 and 402 , these are triple rooms , our check was in was good and quick . Rooms are good size and have all amenities, they are cleaned daily and well kept . Hotel is very close to Marconi metro station , 5 stops to colosseum and 7 stops to termini. We used it extensively every day . We travelled to Florence and Naples and it was very convenient.
We had issues with AC in room 217 was not working well , they finally fixed it last night and worked well . Breakfast is decent and staff is friendly. We unfortunately missed most days as we had early trains from termini , breakfast does not start until 7 , I would suggest offering earlier breakfast or offer some take out options like some other hotels provide. Front desk staff not very friendly, when you walk in back to hotel after long day , they do not smile or make eye contact, even though it is a very small hotel and small reception area and elevator right next to reception.
I am still giving it 5 stars for the value this hotel provides and would stay here again if I am back in Rome .
I booked a premium room and my goodness it was worth it. Room 502 has to be the best of all rooms with extensive balcony next door to the zacuzzi on the fifth floor. Had room service and dined in. Cannot complain. Hot meals at breakfast though were cold. That was a shame. Perfectly situated for a quick route into the sites via the metro. Reception staff superb and so so helpful. Thank you for a wonderful weekend break.
Stayed at the hotel Pulitzer for 3 night stay whilst visiting Rome, the hotel it’s self is nice but I wouldn’t say the hotel is of 4* standard, the hotel is situated in a run down area of Rome not the best place to stay as there is nothing within walking distance the only plus is the metro station is close by.
The majority of staff at the hotel were unfriendly and unhelpful, the buffet breakfast was of poor standard, being cold greasy and uncooked if you require fried eggs with your breakfast there is an additional charge of 2-5 euros the continental breakfast choice wasn’t at its best I would recommend that you have breakfast else were, we tried the restaurant in the evening the food was ok but expensive and the menu is very basic, drinks very expensive, you are best off being more central to Rome itself as we were advised not to go out in the evening around this area, beware of the taxis they are charging 45 euros for a fifteen minute journey to the airport! The stay in Rome was nice but we would not recommend the hotel Pulitzer as your base.
