With a fresh and innovative approach to hospitality, the iRooms group of guesthouses in Rome has been showered with accolades, included being a Condé Nast Johansens award finalist and TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice winner. Offering a cool and funky design concept, iRooms Pantheon & Navona – so called due to it being just steps away from these iconic attractions – serves up hip modernity by way of complete contrast to the ancient wonders all around. Hiding behind the deceptively traditional stone facade is a futuristic world, full of mood lighting and high tech features.
The names of the rooms – iTube, iWild, iCube, iZen and, moving up a notch or two, iMovie and iSpa – show that this place is a fully paid-up, forward-looking member of the 21st century, literally putting the latest technology at your fingertips. All have iPads to change the room’s lighting colours, some have their very own Jacuzzi, others 3D TVs and some 360-degree cinema walls. Cool is the name of the game is more ways than one, as all rooms are efficiently air-conditioned – a must in the height of the summer.
How to Get There
Was kindly given this trip as a present for 4 nights to Rome, staying at Irooms Pantheon & Navona... googled before and wasn't really sure what to expect! WOW - we were kindly given the "Ilove" room and this included mood lighting, floating bed, little luxuries, Netflix, Jacuzzi plus more!!!! Everything we needed for a city trip - great location, super breakfast in your room to start your day, walking distance to everything in Rome and the staff just offer the best level of service. So helpful :-).
Amazing room! Lovely few days away in Rome. The staff are so helpful, wonderful breakfast every morning we had breakfast in bed and at a time that suited us. The hotel location was spot on to walk to all the tourist spots. We even walked to the metro to catch the train back to the airport. Would recommended definately thank you I rooms!
After booking this hotel through Secret Escapes, which I have previously had such good results from having booked through them 6 - 7 times, I was expecting good things. The reviews were good and despite my original reservations around "themed" rooms, I had high hopes. Let me say that according to some of the reviews, this is for a "certain age group" which I believe I fall into at age 30.The positives were:The location - everything is literally within walking distance and we hardly used any public transport as everything is close by.The shower - it was huge!The main reason for 2 stars rather than 1 is due to the location.The negatives were:The room was quite tired and basic; a lot smaller than we expected.The bathroom was not fully clean when we arrived; the toothbrush pot was filled with dirty water. Whilst this was changed on request, it's not something I expect from a "4 star" hotel.The towels; whilst we were given towels on our first two nights, on the third they had obviously run out of towels and we got four bath mats to dry ourselves with rather than the proper bath towels! As it was our last night/morning I didn't bother to say anything but this is not what I would expect from a "4 star" hotel.The breakfast is basic and consists of toasted but cold by the time they arrive sandwiches and sweet treats. Breakfast in the rooms was something I was particularly looking forward to as you normally have to pay a much higher premium for this, however the quality and selection was poor.The facilities; I am not sure how they class themselves as a 4 star hotel as the amenities are not there in my opinion in comparison to the many other 4 star hotels I have stayed in in the past.All in all, I would not stay in an iRooms again. Disappointing is an understatement.
We enjoyed our 5 night break in Rome. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast in our room each day was a great way to start each day. The location is perfect for all the main attractions in Rome and we walked everywhere easily. Would definitely stay here again😋.
When my partner described the hotel she'd booked for our trip to Rome I had my doubts. Themed rooms? Quirky features? Truthfully. I needn't have worried.
What we got in the Wild Room was a wonderfully comfortable bed, TV with Netflix, lay down shower and fluorescent stars across the roof and walls to make a truly unique stay enjoyable.
With it located in a very convenient place between the Pantheon and the Colosseum, and within walking distance of every major Rome sight this was a superb base for a holiday to see the best Rome has to offer.
A small tip - we walked right past the hotel a couple of times first looking for it. It can be found behind a green door next to an electric bike/segway rental store. The buzzers on the wall have IRooms on it giving it away.
