Dating from 1800, this former palace turned public transport HQ is now a sleek five-star property with a handy address near the Termini station, and a 20-minute walk from the Colosseum. The interiors showcase original marble features and stucco columns, but the 82 guestrooms are ultramodern with cool white walls, chunky platform beds and striking artwork. Senses restaurant serves innovative Italian fare and overlooks Rome’s Servian Wall, which was built to protect the city in the sixth century BC. The lounge bar occupies a former ticket hall and features a huge alfresco terrace. Hit the spa (free for guests staying in the Grand Deluxe room, $24 per two hours for all other guests) to relax in the indoor heated pool, sauna or Turkish bath, or to indulge in a water therapy treatment inspired by the nearby Diocletian Thermal Baths.
In the Area
It’s a short walk to the Diocletian Thermal Baths and the cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore, as well as the city’s main train station, Termini. Also nearby is the relatively untouristed but beautiful neighborhood of Monti, where many students, writers and other creative types live. Here, there’s a great local aperitivo scene in the area’s main square, the Piazza Madonna dei Monti, and at neighborhood wine bars Al Vino al Vino and Ai Tre Scalini. Taverna dei Fori Imperiali is a good restaurant to book for dinner nearby. You’re also close to one of Rome’s two metro lines, which makes the Spanish Steps, Vatican, Colosseum and Forum all easy trips.
How to Get There
This hotel had a great location. We did have problems regarding our rooms we had to move a view times however the concerige team was not only efficient but kindly helped us make our experience of Rome a great one. Even upgraded us when was told we just got engaged which made our night just that lil more extra special. They couldn't do enough for us. All rooms was big and stunning had all the facilities you needed. All said we would like the give an extra big thank you to the reception for everything! We strongly recommend this hotel.
A well presented hotel, like someone wanted to make a five star hotel then cut corners on service and extras. There were crucial things missing like tea, coffee and milk. The hotel did give us a kettle when we asked but did not provide the tea or coffee. You were also expected to pay for drinking water from the mini bar at 5€ each, and I have stayed in B&Bs where this is provided as standard. The water from the tap is undrinkable and tastes like a swimming pool. There was some complimentary ready made fruit tea by reception but it was tasteless, tepid and not always there.
We ordered room service for breakfast (the only way of getting coffee before leaving the hotel). They give you a range of 30 minutes when the breakfast will arrive, and it arrived 10 minutes after this. As we had made reservations in central Rome this was quite stressful.
Oh and people throw glass bottles in the bins next to the hotel which might wake you up. To make it worse they kept us waiting 20 minutes to check out and didn’t ask if we could come back later or offer us something while we waited.
The positives include a very well appointed bathroom with a double outlet shower and stone bath. Good quality shower gel, lotion etc. The bed was very comfortable. Complementary Prosecco on arrival.
Overall I wished I had booked a lower rating hotel in a busier part of town, at least that way I wouldn’t have as far to walk to buy my own water and tea...
We’ve just returned home from a three night stay at this gorgeous hotel.
It’s a beautiful hotel. The room was clean and spacious with the added benefit of two TVs and two bathrooms. The beds are immaculate and so comfortable.
It’s close to a main road so there is a small amount of road noise but it’s not an amount that would disturb your sleep. The curtains are blackout so you get no light in the morning to wake you up unnecessarily.
The staff are warm; welcoming and helpful.
The location is fantastic. Most things are walking distance but if you don’t want to walk Termini bus and metro station is directly across the road and very easy to navigate. If I ever return to Rome this would be my go to hotel.
We visited here in April and selected the hotel for its location (very close to the central train station) and the familiarity with the Radisson brand.
The were made to feel very welcome and we were impressed with the rooms, which are modern, spacious and clean.
We didn't eat in the hotel, only being in Rome for a couple of days, but we did visit the bar a couple of times and it's a fantastic room complete with marble pillars and an impressive water feature.
The hotel is close to a number of good restaurant options, including one which offers a typical italian breakfast just across the road.
Glamorous location a stone's throw from Termini train station. Senses restaurant is very nice for a romantic dinner with its fountain, his chill out music and the cure for details that the place denotes. The staff is nice, extremely professional and quick. The food was good, we had veal cheek and sea carbonara. They served us different types of bread and grissini and a lil' entrée which were in the house. We spent 64€ which is not exactly cheap for two courses and 2 bottles of wate, but the place and the food were worth the cost. Higly recommended!
