On Via del Corso, Rome’s main shopping thoroughfare, Hotel Trecento is a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel with a killer location between the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. Behind a historic façade, futuristic details including glass seats, silver walls and mirrored beds (and ceilings) complement such bold classical features as ornate fireplaces and huge arched windows. The tradition-meets-technology theme extends to in-room gadgets, which include multicolor chromotherapy lights, customizable fragrance diffusors, 65- to 80-inch Smart TVs (hooked up to an Xbox) and Bose audio systems. In contrast, the bathrooms are quietly opulent, with marble fixtures, plush bathrobes and Vrai toiletries. For a grown-up getaway, opt for the Junior Suite, which comes with a chromotherapy massage bathtub. While there’s no restaurant, Italian breakfast is served daily and cocktails are mixed every evening.
In the Area
With a killer location on Via del Corso, Hotel Trecento makes a great base for exploring the Italian capital. The Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon are both within a five-minute stroll, while the magnificent Colosseum can be reached in 15 minutes. If you’re looking to explore farther afield, there are several bus stops within a block of the hotel that can get you to the Termini rail station and Vatican City. There’s plenty to see on hip Via del Corso; check out Schegge for handmade leather goods, stop for a gourmet sandwich at Erzinio, or stroll round the ancient walled courtyard garden of Palazzo Doria Pamphilj.
How to Get There
Hotel Trecento is located perfectly, the staff are amazing and our room is very modern (however so modern I find it sometimes difficult to understand putting the correct room lighting or temperature without needing the staff's assistance). Its a small boutique hotel so spaces are limited however I was still impressed with the hotel in general... I can't get over how close we are to everything amazing about Rome.
Customer service is top notch !!!
When in Rome, I will never hesitate to book a room with Hotel Trecento again and again.
My mum and I booked a short five night stay at Hotel Trecento back in September so that we could explore Rome whilst staying fairly central. The hotel itself is very central, located on the road right next to the Piazza Venezia. There is a lovely old-fashioned lift that takes you up to the second floor where the hotel is located (it's all on one floor), where you enter a brightly coloured, ultra-modern reception area.
Our room was fantastic, with chromatherapy lights in the bedroom and bathroom which were fairly easy to use (you are shown how to use these controls). There is a gigantic television on the wall, a huge bed and plenty of wardrobe space, although a few more hangers may have been handy. The bathroom has a waterfall shower and plenty of room to move around. The whole bedroom had a fabulously modern effect to it with lots of attention being put into the design and layout! The controller for the television and air conditioning is through an X-box, which is ok for me as I have used these devices before. You are shown how to adjust the temperature and access TV and Netflix, but if you are struggling, just ask one of the lovely members of staff!
We only had breakfast one of the mornings we were there as we had an early start, we were given a few things including yoghurt, croissants and maybe some fruit as well, but I don't think the breakfast was worth the money paid for it (I think this was between 8-11 euros). The staff at the hotel are constantly ready to help and are eager to please - always so friendly and welcoming, helping us navigate Rome and see the best places.
We were incredibly lucky in fact, as the hotel manager asked us if we wanted to switch rooms to their Junior Deluxe Suite as it was currently being trialled. This room was even more incredible, with a large round bed, large TV area with controls and your own entrance door and hallway. The bathroom was much bigger than the standard room, with a jacuzzi at one end (also has chromotherapy lights). We were asked to review the room so that improvements could be made, so here is what we thought. The room was absolutely stunning, with the chromotherapy lights and modern feel to the whole hotel is a fantastic twist in such a historic city. The bathroom was equally as amazing, however with having the jacuzzi tub there, there wasn't room for a shower which is something that would be nice to have the option of as the shower-head on the jacuzzi was a pain to use.
Considering that the Junior Deluxe Room was about £500 more than what we had paid for the standard room, we thought it was quite pricey as there are only a few upgraded features. We have both said that we would come back to this hotel in the future, but we would only be purchasing the standard room, as the Deluxe Suite would definitely suit more a couple (particularly fantastic for those on a honeymoon or celebrating an anniversary!!).
We did have a fantastic stay at Hotel Trecento and felt very welcomed there with a fantastic staff and cleaning team (the beds are always done SO neatly!). Would definitely recommend this hotel for a completely modern twist on such a beautifully old and historic city, and as it is centrally located, you shouldn't struggle to get to any of the main attractions!!
If you are looking for something a bit different and can think out of the box and into your x-box..then this unique boutique hotel is for you! We loved our 5 night stay at Hotel Trecento. Everything was wonderful: the location , the staff, the room and the young vibe and atmosphere. Our deluxe room was very spacious and had a view of Via del Corso and Piazza Venezia.. the lively center of Rome and a great base to every major attraction in Rome either by foot or public transportation. The young staff was very attentive to our every needs; a nice continental breakfast was delivered to our room every morning so it was great to have breakfast in bed! The decor is very modern and ecclesiastical with mode tone colors. Had a massive T.V. Screen and x-box control panel to navigate with. This was my fifth time in Rome and the Hotel Trecento was the best hotel to be at!
We stayed for 8 nights in this lovely, restful hotel. We were on the Via del Corso , Main Street in historic Rome. The staff were very attentive, friendly and assisted us any time we asked. The bed was the most comfortable, we slept so well. We would stay again if we travel back to Rome. We had a wonderful week. This is a relatively new, boutique hotel and we had our breakfast served to our room every morning.
The hotel is a walking distance (max 3 km) to all top sights and very centrally located and still pretty quiet. Obviously the owners had some kind of vision, which they have implemented using (a cloud based) service, where you use Xbox to control thing like changing lightning (different colors) and AC. When you wake up in the middle of the night and need to sign in through the Xbox controller, use at least 5-7 clicks to get access the temperature controls, you feel where technology is in wrong place. I wonder how many e.g. elderly people get this and would appreciate the simple good old on/off-temperature controls on the wall. But the main thing though for the stay: the rooms are good, clean and tidy, the staff incredibly friendly. Just having a simple user interface to the basic functions like lightning (there were some "touch plates" on the wall) and AC, and I would give 5/5. And to repeat - this is a great location!
