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 the Stendhal for 4 nights this month and were very pleased with our choice. The Stendhal is a very comfortable, stylish hotel in central Rome and easy walking distance to many of the main attractions. Also some great restaurants are nearby. The staff are extremely helpful and professional and a special mention for Valerio their wonderful barman. He is a mine of information and a great pourer of cocktails.Being a boutique hotel it is a good size and although the rooms are a bit snug they are very well appointed and stylish.
Everything was EXCELLENT, the staff was super in all aspects. Breakfast was terrific with lots of great choices. I give your establishment a five star plus rating and would recommend your hotel to anybody.
Well located hotel which serves a nice buffet breakfast but is very small and next to a noisy road. Also dissapoinyed that they do not offer tea/coffee facilities within the rooms. However the staff are pleasant and the local amenities good.
Great experience, incredible staff. Hope to return there often. Location is ideal - not far from the Spanish Steps and adjacent to Via Veneto. Close to restaurants and shopping, walking distance to the Pantheon.
We booked two rooms for our family but when arriving they had us staying in two different buildings.
The manager made arrangements to provide rooms in the same building and upgraded us for waiting for the second room to come available.
Nice hotel just wish they had the fruit they show in the pictures for breakfast and bacon, ham or cooked meat would be nice instead of cold cuts for breakfast.
