Atop Monte Mario, the hill that dominates the Eternal City, Rome Cavalieri is an opulent retreat that offers five-star service and views to match. Set within 15 acres of lush parkland, the hotel is tricked out with the kind of luxe trappings you’d expect from this Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts property, including one of Italy’s best restaurants, the three-Michelin-starred, La Pergola. Interiors are typically Italian, with acres of marble, chandeliers, elaborate wall paintings and a museum-quality art collection and all of the 345 spacious guestrooms feature balconies. Resort amenities include four swimming pools, five restaurants and bars, a palatial spa with a Turkish bath and two Davis Cup clay tennis courts.
In the Area
The hotel is a good 30-minute taxi ride (or free shuttle) to the city center for Rome’s classic sights including the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Pantheon. Stroll across the Tiber to Trastevere, arguably Rome’s loveliest pedestrian district; it’s home to the famed Porta Portese flea market, some the city’s best traditional thin crust pizza joints, and the hypermodern Glass Hostaria (try the chestnut tagliatelle). And don’t miss a peek at La Bocca della Verita (The Mouth of Truth), featured in the classic 1953 Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday.
How to Get There
Thoughly enjoyed our night at the Waldorf in Rome. We d been to Florence for a couple of nights and then hopped on the train to Rome...met up with friends and family for the afternoon/evening and to stay at the Waldorf was a fantastic end to an enjoyable day. Breakfast the following morning on the terrace in the warm September sun was delightful. Not the prettiest hotel from the outside (1960s) but gorgeous opulent interior. Fine artwork. We re not dressy people but every member of Staff we encountered treated us as if we were VIPs in a friendly, courteous manner. Would love to visit again.
The Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria is a first rate hotel/resort. While there in very hot August it was so nice to come back to the vary large pool area and cool off. The hotel has beautiful large rooms with great views of Rome on the back side of the hotel.
The morning breakfast buffet is one of the most extensive we have experienced with many selections. Eating outside in the garden by the pool is a plus as well. One of the best aspect of the hotel is the very good Concierge Desk which gave us so much help with airport pickup, dinning suggestions and especially arranging private tours. Anna was the best concierge person I have ever worked with at any hotel we have been to in the world. We had two stays at this hotel while on our trip to Italy and we would certainly return again. Great job!!
Wow. What a palace of a hotel. Amazed by the artwork inside, top class room, top class service. Breakfast was very good, lots of choices. Excellent pool area and plenty of sun beds. Courtesy Bus service to Rome centre most useful. Be aware that costs for drink and food match the class of hotel. But what a wonderful experience!
