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
Great location, friendly and helpful staff. There was a nice continental breakfast included with our room rate. We were within walking distance to the Colosseum which was nice to go back & visit at night. I would definitely stay here again.
The toilet in our room never flushed properly. The problem was reported, but never able to be fixed during our 2 day stay. We were told that some rooms have this issue and nobody cared. Customer service as poor as their plumbing.
This hotel experience was our first in a 6 week European holiday and stayed one of our favourites!! The rooms were well equipped, clean and had all the ammenities you could want. It was great walking distance to ALL the Rome attractions. The breakfast was also delicious. The staff were helpful and friendly.
