What We Love
- The location, an easy walk to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, with the rest of the city’s historic center easily reached on foot or by metro (a stop sits less than 500 feet away)
- The lovely lobby lounge, library and bar rooms, where a simple but tasty free breakfast buffet and evening canapés are served daily
What To Know
- A city tax of $7 per person, per night will be collected by the hotel at checkout
- There’s no gym, spa or restaurant, but you’ve come to Rome to eat and drink, not to work out and dine without leaving your digs
- Set on one of Rome’s busier streets. Doubled-pane windows keep rooms relatively quiet, but you can request a room on an upper floor
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
A modern/classic mashup. Cream-colored marble floors and moldings define the hotel’s public spaces, from the small reception alcove to a trio of cozy rooms all lined with wood paneling and painted a soothing light aqua. These rooms house a Deco-ish bar, café tables for breakfast and a few small upholstered loveseats, as well as book-and-knick-knack-filled shelves. Paintings and drawings of Roman scenes and Italianate images dot the walls.
Bed and Bath
The 30 petite guestrooms feature walls upholstered in robin’s egg–blue and beige-gold fabric, and ivory-painted wood wainscoting. The pale color palette is offset by cherry-stained wooden headboards, writing desks and cabinets. Rooms each have one or two windows (front facing rooms overlook Barberini Square), their own AC and heating controls and plenty of plugs. Bathrooms recall the cream-colored stone used in the lobby, and all have an alcove tub-and-shower combo, single sink, toilet and bidet. As the name suggests, Double Superior Rooms are a bit larger and have larger baths than the entry-level Double Rooms.
The breakfast buffet, served on tables with tablecloths and flowers in the ground-floor rooms off the lobby, proves a filling feast of pastries, cheeses, salume, cereals, yogurt and eggs, scrambled or hard-boiled. Coffee and espresso are made to order. Throughout the day the hotel replenishes the bar with snacks (chips and nuts, mostly) and in the evenings it opens for drinks and light canapés, during aperitivo, the Italian cocktail hour.
How to Get There
We stayed at this hotel for 10 nights. When we got there the main hotel had not changed from heat to air conditioning and the room we were given was very warm. Suraj was wonderful and moved us to the annex building which did have air conditioning. The room was perfect and very quiet. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The Piazza Barberini was an excellent location as I had to take the metro to the convention center for half of this time and it is centrally located for all of the tourist venues. The perfect location from which to tour this beautiful city. We would definitely stay here again. We highly recommend the Hotel Stendahl!!
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It's in a great location with a bus station outside the door and you are a 10 minute walk to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. On arrival we were told the air conditioning was out of service and our room was located on the 1st floor overlooking the street. We had a window which we could open and anticipated a noisy night sleep due to our rooms location however it wasn't too bad. The room was quite spacious while the bathroom although a little small provided all the services. The bed was firm and along with the pillows comfortable. The breakfast room is quaint and while not providing an extensive breakfast option is more than suitable. All staff were pleasant and friendly and our time at the hotel was good.
The Stendhal it's centrally located just 10-15min walk to the Trevi fountain, Spanish Steps, and all the central attractions. It is right in the middle of Piazza Barberini with plenty of transportation choices,Taxis,Metro and Rome Hop on Hop off Bus. The rooms were spacious, clean and well decorated. The staff was friendly and the included breakfast was a nice touch.
My wife and I stayed in an apartment recently for 11 days.Hotel Stendhal is an excellent property in a very safe area and close to the Spanish Steps and other main sites of Rome.
The apartments are separate from the main hotel, literally just around the corner.Not an issue.Although situated on the Piazza Barberini it is extremely quiet and close to transport,Taxis,Metro and Rome Hop on Hop off Bus.
The rooms are well appointed and very clean, serviced daily.
The staff are excellent and give freely of their time to assist your stay plus local dining spots and what to visit.
There is a food service for light dinners in the Breakfast area.Excellent service from Valerio,who advised us where to eat and those special sites in Rome.
Summary Highly recommend to stay at this Hotel/Apartments.
I loved staying in Stendhal. The location is perfect, the staff is so nice, the rooms were super clean , beautiful upgraded shower. Great breakfast was included. Everything was walking distance, we didn’t use any public transportation. We were upgraded and stayed at the new section , we will definitely go back!
