The Church Palace
What We Love
- A relaxing stay in Rome, just outside the city center, with breakfast and a welcome drink Being located out of the hustle and bustle, next to the charming Villa Carpegna Park
- Having the Cordelia metro station right on the doorstep
- Sipping on an espresso or aperitif in the hotel’s dramatically Italian monochrome interiors
What To Know
- Only a quarter-mile from the nearest metro stop (on the A line), and 4 stops from St. Peter's Basilica
- Free WiFi and parking
The Church Palace does a stand-up job of blending traditional Renaissance elegance with snappy, modern Italian design. Monochrome zigzag wallpaper and sleek marble countertops sit alongside crumbling pillars and quaint, manicured gardens, in an impressive amalgamation where the old meets the new. The Villa Carpegna Park, located on the hotel’s doorstep, offers an idyll of calm where you can appreciate tinkling water features and twittering birds in a heritage setting. Situated a half-hour metro ride outside of Rome’s centre, The Church Palace allows guests to experience a peaceful, sleepy ambience as well as an easy route to the city’s most famous and visited sites.
As if it wasn’t serene enough, the hotel also has its own magnificent church, complete with naves and green marble colonnades. You can venture further to Vatican City in three metro stops, or go further into the centre to sample an incredible array of world-famous artworks and delectable cuisine. Return to the hotel in the evening to enjoy Roman gastronomy in the Nero Terrace Restaurant, or simply just to dally over a late-evening cocktail in the outdoor Square bar.
How to Get There
My wife and me were at the church palace for 4 days in june. The lobby of the hotel is very glamor with sculptures and pointing sur. The first 3 floors are clean. But our room was on the 4th floor and this was a choc compare to wath we saw before. The elevator was stopping at the 3rd floor and was most of the time disfonctionnal. In the room the wall were al stained and thirthy. The only window was on the roof and so thirthy. The air conditionned was very very nosy. We ask the personnal at the reception if we could upgrade our room to something better and they coldly answer no. But the hotel was almost empty at that time and they had a group 2 days later. So they didn’t want to ennoyed themself to satisfy their client.
So i just want you to know if you want to reserve to this Place be very carefull....
This hotel was solid. The grounds are very nicely maintained and the rooms were clean. The mattress wasn’t great but that’s Europe in general.
The neighborhood isn’t the best if you are a tourist but serviceable. Safe enough and easy transit.
Amazing hotel only thing it lacks is swimming pool. Seriously needs one. If it had one couldnt fault at all. Suites were amazing. Staff were polite. Would go back but might have to think more of the lines of hotel with pool.
This is an amazing hotel built in spacious beautiful gardens.On arriving the receptionist was very helpful.We were shown to our room said we had been upgraded but I would say it was basic but very clean the view was of the courtyard where deliveries were at all hours even at night. The walls must be quite thin as we could hear everything even a man snoring next door and an Italian lady that arrived at 1am woke us up with her loud chatting ,but don't let this put you off this is still a hotel worth staying at. The breakfast had something for everyone and plenty of it.We found all the staff very friendly except for one receptionist with short hair she really wasn't helpful at all which was dissapointing.Mr C was helpful even though he forgot to give us our voucher when we booked with him for the Vatican. Think you need facilities to make tea and coffee in the rooms. Would definately stay here again.
I have just returned from a short break to Rome with my wife. We booked the Church Palace quite late without doing too much research. We had previously stopped on the opposite side of Rome. As soon as you pull up to the the hotel the grounds and the facade are very impressive. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. The room was a first floor room with good facilities and an extremely large bed. Breakfast was excellent in the large dining room. Lots and lots of food to choose from. The bar area was very nice and comfortable with extremely friendly bar staff. The prices are not cheep but this is Rome afterall. There is a pleasant central open air area inside the hotel where you can relax with drinks. A large restaurant on site with beautiful outside dining area. Free internet calling from rooms with handy tourist guides.The hotel is located a few hundred meters from the metro and so ideal for jumping in an out of rome every day at cheep prices. I would highly recommend this hotel.
