On Rome’s bustling Via Boncompagni, the Rose Garden Palace has a rose-tinted façade and a prime location close to the Via Veneto, the Piazza di Spagna and the Trevi Fountain. Inside, the look is modern Italian, with marble columns in the lobby, parquet flooring and urns full of flowers. The 65 guestrooms are furnished with comfy couches and beds wrapped in handsome blue blankets and crisp white linens, and all feature marble bathrooms. The polished Junior Suites (376 square feet) feature herringbone hardwood flooring and wide work desks. The hotel’s standout amenity is the Il Roseto restaurant, especially its dining atrium, where you can take breakfast in the morning. There’s also an alfresco terrace set in a garden filled with roses and palm trees. Dine on spelt fusilli with eggplant ratatouille and juniper-infused ricotta, or try the marinated beef and truffle carpaccio. Start the day with a dip in the whirlpool or with a workout at the L’Oasi fitness center before heading out to explore the Eternal City.
In the Area
The Rose Garden Palace is centrally located near the Barberini and Spagna metro stops, and many of Rome’s star attractions are within walking distance, including the Trevi Fountain, the Caracalla Baths and the Roman Forum. Also close by are such museums as the Capitoline, the Ara Pacis and the Borghese Gallery. Of course, you can also window-shop on the Via Condotti and climb the Spanish Steps. And if you don’t mind a quick taxi ride across the river, visit Trastevere, and don’t miss the neighborhood’s stunning Santa Maria in Trastevere church.
How to Get There
We found the Rose Garden Palace to be a great value, with friendly people always willing to help. We we're' close to a taxi stand, a mile from the Spanish Steps, a mile from the Rome train terminal, and were able to walk to most of the destinations (Forum, Colosseum, Palintine Hill, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain...).
The walk is steep so it might not be for everyone! The only downside was the bar, after a long day of walking around Rome we wanted a glass of wine and some down time, service for the last three days we were there (Tue, Wed, Thur) was poor. The first four days the bar tender was very good - so it was a function of people.
We loved our room, comfortable bed, great housekeeping service, great size, clean and a great space to make our central point for exploring Rome.
I only spent one night at Rose Garden and the service was wonderful. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. The service and staff were very accommodating. I had dinner in the restaurant and it was excellent as well as breakfast the next morning. I would definitely stay here on my next trip to Rome and highly recommend it.
We arrived in Rome and stayed at the Rose Garden for three nights. Home base as we toured the city highlights. Great accommodations, breakfast and lounge and dinner menu.
Front desk service a little cold.
The Rose Garden Palace is clean and welcoming. The reception staff are helpful and the location is in a quiet neighbourhood but near to shops and restaurants. The Trevi fountain is about a Fifteen minute walk away and can also be easily reached by bus. The Hard Rock Cafe is about three minutes by foot. There is a taxi rank nearby and a bus stop right outside the hotel and buses run regularly The nearest metro is about ten minutes walk away. Buy a daily public transport card at
There is a small indoor pool, sauna and gym. There were a couple of issues with the pool area - no towels and a warning alarm sound which went on for ages withour any staff apparently serking to resolve this.
Breakfast was average but disappointing given it cost 15 euros per person. Bacon cold, scrambled egg rubbery, omelettes cost extra. Three cereal options, fresh fruit, pastries, toast, yoghurts, fruit juice, ham and cheese. However hot options were very limited and I would expect more from a four star hotel. I am unable to comment on lunch or dinner as I did not eat these in the hotel restaurant. The restaurant was closed one evening for a private function but we were not notified on check in or beforehand.
Overall a nice stay but I am not sure if I would return. Probably a good choice if the area is right for you but expect a hotel that is better than a three star but not quite four star quality
Very good play to stay, rest and visit Rome. Nice rooms (classical and designed), plaesant swimming pool, good breakfast. Bus very closed and near main monuments and shops. Overall a very good hotel indeed
