London meets Rome at The Britannia Hotel, a British-inspired boutique hotel housed in a 19th-century Art Nouveau building in the heart of the Eternal City. Style-lovers and Anglophiles have a lot to drool over here; this 33-room, four-star property taps into the glamorous side of Rome, with elaborate décor, parquet flooring, lavish fabrics paired with oversized beds, intricate headboards and refined drapes.
The substance is every bit as tempting as the style. Thoughtful extras include perks like tea and coffee facilities and even filled minibars on arrival. You can linger over delicious buffet-style breakfasts – or order straight to your room if you don’t feel like getting out of bed – or visit the lounge bar, an elegant spot for Italian aperitifs and expertly mixed cocktails. And when the city beckons, your location, a five-minute stroll from Teatro dell’Opera, puts you just 15 minutes from the iconic Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain.
Elaborate décor, parquet flooring, lavish fabrics and oversized beds, dressed in luxe linens and fancy headboards, characterize the 33 individually designed rooms and suites. Expect filled minibars on arrival, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and marble bathrooms with his-and-hers toiletries. All rooms are similar in design, but vary in room layout and size. Superior rooms offer slightly more space than the Classic rooms.
Set on Via Napoli, just 650 feet from Teatro dell’Opera, the hotel couldn’t be more central. You’ll be just a five-minute stroll from the National Roman Museum, Baths of Diocletian and Palazzo delle Esposizioni, and only 15 minutes from Le Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. Don’t leave without marveling at the gladiatorial arena that is the Colosseum, checking out the city’s silhouette from Janiculum Hill at dawn, visiting St. Peter’s Basilica to see Bernini’s bronze baldacchino and admiring the Sistine Chapel’s frescoes by Michelangelo in Vatican City. Further city thrills include browsing the stalls at Campo dei Fiori Market, having your tarot cards read in Piazza Navona and shopping on Via Condotti, Nazionale, Via del Governo Vecchio and Via Cola di Rienzo.
How to Get There
The room was clean and comfortable. We simply love the bed. The bathroom is nice and very well appointed. The service was outstanding. Very friendly and helpful staff. We would definitely stay here again.
Booked the Britannia based on reviews and was not disappointed. Everything from breakfast to staff helpfulness was at or above expectation. Room was well proportioned, better than others we have stayed in in the past.
Location very convenient and parking right next door was great for us travelling by car.. Walk to all the key attractions.
A nice touch ws the free mobile phone included in the room. We might need more time to fully master and exploit it, but it was very helpful for we Aussies with no local phone and prohibitive roaming costs.
Would definitely stay there again when next in Rome.
The room was amazing, spacious despite us getting the 'Cosy room'. Staff were friendly and always on hand to help. Plenty at breakfast to try. Though not sure why the hotel (and places around) are set on 'American Breakfasts'...we all know British breakfasts are where it is at :P
Also in each room, you are provided a phone to take out with you. Free calls and data! Never had that before.
The hotel is in a great location for getting to the tourist attractions and for shopping and restaurants. The staff is INCREDIBLE...they cannot do enough for you and went out of their way to help us with delayed luggage by Alitalia and their delivery agent. Rooms are very comfortable, breakfast buffet and cook-to-order menu were great. There us a very small elevator...maybe 2 passenger. HIGHLY recommend this hotel.
Very nice hotel with very nice staff
We had a large, quiet room with a very large and clean bathroom (with an great shower!) Loved the touch of providing a smart phone to utilise maps and attractions in the area
The hotel has a very nice breakfast and parking is available just a couple of doors down.
Very happy with our stay here and would definitely stay again
