A block from Piazza Navona, this Rome newcomer opened in October 2014 and provides a modern base from which to explore the city’s ancient attractions. In the 43 guestrooms you’ll find ebony flooring, burnt orange couches and stark white linens. Kick back in a thick terrycloth robe and take advantage of the fully stocked minibar and luxe bath products before heading to the roof terrace for a glass of wine. The bar, dotted with houndstooth-print chairs and chartreuse sofas, overlooks the Pantheon and the church of Sant’Ivo alla Sapienza, a baroque masterpiece. Plan your visit for pre-dinner drinks, when light appetizers and specialty cocktails are on offer.
In the Area
The hotel’s prime location puts you within walking distance of Rome’s seemingly endless sights, including the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. Fritter away hours people-watching in Piazza Navona — arguably Rome’s most famous square — before fortifying yourself at Lo Zozzone, a typically mobbed sandwich joint that fills its focaccia with a dizzying array of cured meats, veggies and cheeses. For a more glam day, ask the hotel staff to book a Ferrari tour through Tuscany or play Roman Holiday on a Vespa tour of the Eternal City.
How to Get There
Situated mid way between Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, this is a great hotel for your stay. The staff are friendly and very helpful and nothing is too much for them. The breakfast is good with plenty of choice. The rooms are well appointed and the hotel as a whole is lovely.
My only slight negative is that, due to the floors being black, one of my group who has a sight impairment did get caught out a couple of times on the ground floor where there are some steps between reception and the bar that they could not see due to a lack of definition between the steps. Once they had become aware of them it was fine.
The view from the rooftop terrace is lovely, a great place to sit and relax after a long day of walking
We were staying in Naples for the week and decided to drive to Rome for a night. This hotel is very nice, clean, comfortable, friendly and perfectly located within walking distance to all main attractions. We had a car the hotel does not have parking but parking is close by and the hotel called the garage and they come and get your car for you and return back next day. Parking was $45 Euro. If you don't want to walk a lot take a tour and get on one of the many hop on hop off buses. We got tickets from the hotel for one of the buses so we walked some than got on the bus to go somewhere else. If you just stay on the bus you can also see lots of attractions as they drive to other stops also headphones are included and they tell you about the attractions and area. We had a very full day and left the next afternoon which the hotel held our bags and the garage kept our car until 3pm which allowed us to enjoy Rome a little longer. Plenty of places to eat close by we had dinner right across the street which was very good.
Hotel is fabulously clean. A warm professional welcome from the staff each day. Breakfast had plenty of choice available. Location is excellent close to Piazza Navona and other monuments. Would recommend to others.
Our family stayed here in September for three nights booking three separate rooms. We have visited Rome many times before so we wanted a place that would provide surroundings conducive to taking a step back and enjoying the view. We were very happy with our choice at Palazzo Navona.
The location can’t be beat as you are a short walking distance to many major sites, and of course just walking the city center itself is an experience itself. Rooms were very comfortable and well thought out. The breakfast was very nice for the city although cannot be compared to some Agroturismos out in rural Italy, but the presentation was lovely and plentiful.
One of the biggest draws for us was rooftop terrace and it didn’t disappoint, and we especially enjoyed the happy hour aperitivos that they provide. It is amazingly beautiful and you can even see the duomo of the Pantheon. Also, the staff was VERY accommodating, friendly, and professional.
I do have to say that if you are going to rush around and sight see (which is understandable especially if it’s your first time in Rome) you might find a better value elsewhere because basically you’ll just need a comfortable place to sleep, but if you really want to slow down and just enjoy the moment Palazzo Navona has a lot to offer.
One night my wife was feeling sick and we decided to have dinner at the hotel. At the concierge I was informed that the food was made by an external restaurant, and I decided to go out to buy it myself. I bought 2 paninis and a half bottle of wine (for me), and ordered a glass from the front desk. To my surprise, they denied me, because the wine had been bought out, not in the hotel restaurant. And that I could use the plastic cup available in the room. In the middle of Italy, I had to drink wine in a plastic cup... Unforgivable!!!
