While we can’t guarantee Audrey Hepburn on this Roman holiday, we can promise modern minimalist design overlooking Rome’s historic streets. Old meets new to blockbuster effect here at the brand-new Rome Style Hotel, thanks to its cool interior design within walking distance of the Spanish Steps. Taking its name seriously, these new digs are as stylish as their fashion-house neighbors on Via Condotti.
Style also meets substance in the upstairs guestrooms here, where you can expect king-sized beds with hypoallergenic mattresses and well-stocked marble bathrooms – the perfect post-sightseeing retreat. Add to that a healthy buffet breakfast that caters to your every need, including gluten-free and lactose-free dietary requirements, and you have the recipe for a super-stylish Italian escape.
In keeping with the nearby fashion boutiques of Via Condotti, Rome Style Hotel lives up to its name, with cool, minimalist design in the modern guestrooms and elegant marble bathrooms. For a bit more space, opt for the Executive room over the Superior.
When in Rome… start your day with an American breakfast buffet (hey, it might not flow, but it’s a great kick-off for a day packed with sightseeing). Served daily from 7am, Rome Style Hotel packs its contemporary lounge area on the ground floor with organic and local produce for a healthy way to wake up. Gluten-free and lactose-free dishes also accommodate all tastes.
While inside, Rome Style Hotel is a mix of minimalist modern design, outside you’ll find Rome’s historic heart. Follow the tourists to the nearby Spanish Steps and Bernini’s Baroque Fontana della Barcaccia for plenty of Instagram opportunities, or head to Via Condotti to splash some cash in some of Italy’s most famous fashion houses.
How to Get There
I did not like this hotel. I booked a “triple” room where the photo showed an entirely different room than the one they gave me. They said that was a suite...but it was the photo next to the room I booked so explain to me how it is my fault? I asked for a refund to change hotels and the lady told me to talk to the agency I booked from. The agency, hotels.com talked to the hotel and they refused to do anything about it. Thankfully hotels.com were nice enough to see that it was them to blame and refunded some of my money. The lady at the reception was unfriendly and intimidating. They don’t even have a lobby so as I waited for my room I stayed in the breakfast area. Speaking of breakfast, which was included in my booking, she refused to let me eat when I came early on the day of the reservation and said I would have to pay, while the next day is included. I was fine with that even though her tone was rude. The room was available an hour earlier before check in but what was not nice was how she kept mentioning how nice she was for giving it to me an hour early! So when I checked out a few hours earlier from the check out time should I come and tell you, you should be thankful I checked out a few hours earlier? Come on, let the guest feel comfortable and welcomed. But yes if anyone books the triple room make sure before that you get the room you want because they apparently don’t match photos with the rooms they have!
We stayed with our family (2 adults and 2 kids; 14 and 11 yo) in a ‘quadruple suite’. The room has 2 comfortable double beds. It is tastefully decorated, but very dark. We could have done with one or two more lamps. Also, it should have triple or quadruple glazing. Our room was on the first floor and very noisy with noise coming from the street. Luckily we are good sleepers, but if you sleep light the room is not for you.
The mini bar is filled with water bottles and some soft drinks that can be used during the stay. There also is an Nespresso machine; very inconveniently put inside a cabinet so it is difficult to refill with water. Unfortunately there are only 4 coffee capsules to use and the capsules are not refilled on a daily basis. Same for the milk. I think in a 4 star hotel coffee, tea, milk and sugar should be refilled on a daily basis without the need to ask for it.
The main disappointment however is the bathroom: it is tiny! Not good for 2 people, let alone 4. There is a very small sink, with no space at all to put toiletries. The toilet and bidet are squeezed into a small bathroom with bath. Not even space for a proper toilet roll stand. The shower was very difficult to switch from ‘rain shower’ to ‘hand shower’.
Breakfast was included in the room rate. The breakfast room also is tiny, but we did not have to wait for seating. Breakfast choice is good, not too much. There is no lobby area in the hotel, but you can sit in the breakfast area to wait.
Stayed 3 nights in the standard room which was okay . Hotel has nice helpful staff and is well located . Things to be aware of are .... Breakfast area is small and the food counter is packed if 4 people are there waiting for the toaster which takes an eternity !
I wish hotels wouldn't say breakfast is included if they mean some things are charged as an extra . The standard room is very nice but very small and very dark ( our room had no lights in the ceiling at all ) and two people can't get ready very easily at the same time in the bathroom as there's not enough room and its the only place with a mirror and light .
One plus note was that our room had a bidet however you would need to remove one of your legs to use it as they had built it tight up against a buttress so it wasn't possible to sit facing it .
The other thing which was annoying was that the small coffee area with kettle didn't seem to be topped up each day and we had to keep asking for coffee and milk only to be told that we were allocated two milk sachets per room per day .... we were asking for two sachets per cup and not 2 litres .
The Hotel / Room was clean and tidy and the staff were all polite and helpful , It was the little things that let it down .
