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
The Rose Garden Palace is literally across the street from the American Embassy, which made us feel very safe. There is a convenient cab stand one block away, right where it intersected Via Veneto, making plenty of shopping within easy walking distance. We were also able to walk to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain once we got to know our way around that part of town.
Our room was a nice size, with room for a chair/ottoman, and a small desk. The bed had both firm mattress and pillows, which I like. The one sore spot was the bathroom. The bidet took up too much space and forced the toilet to be awkwardly close to the sink. Also, for some reason there was no soap dish, so we had to leave the bar of soap right on the counter, where it would adhere as it dried. The best thing about the bathroom was the superb water pressure.
Service was uniformly polite and efficient. The front desk staff helped us make change, confirmed restaurant reservations, provided directions and answered all of our questions. The breakfast buffet was not overwhelmingly diverse, but always fresh and well-stocked. I also appreciated the free Wi-Fi.
As we left the hotel to head home, both my wife and I agreed that we would happily stay at the Rose Garden Palace again, the next time we come to Rome.
I stayed here as part of a tour while in Rome. My room was a decent size for a single person. The bathroom was a tight squeeze, however, even for just one person. The breakfast was good, but nothing spectacular; dinner, however, was excellent. A quick walk to the Spanish Steps and other sites. Hotel staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants and quickly calling taxis when needed.
This was our third stay at the hotel in 5 years. The location is great, the staff are pleasant and very helpful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is very nice and complete.
We love returning to this peaceful oasis in bustling Rome.
The service was very good. Breakfast delicious. Good location. I don't give 5 stars, because I requested two separately beds, and they don't have independent beds, so I had to sleep with someone from the office very close.
We found this hotel by chance after a disasterous start to our holiday elsewhere. It was fabulous, immaculately clean, well located and very friendly in an unpretenscious way. My only negative was that breakfast wasnt included in the price which was quite high. That said they upgraded us to a delux suite with adjoining room for the children. We would definitely return.
