The Tribune Hotel may be new, but its sleek and modern design is making it stand out from the crowd already, even in an upscale neighborhood packed with luxury properties. A member of the Tridente Collection of unique boutique hotels, these city digs exude warmth and style, from the chic guest rooms, with their black-marble floors and luxurious bathrooms, all the way up to the fabulous rooftop terrace, where you can take in panoramic views of the Eternal City.
Speaking of the romantic Italian capital, you’ll be perfectly placed to discover it from this cool city base in Rome’s historic heart. Here, you’re just steps from the Villa Borghese gardens and a stone’s throw from the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto, meaning many of the city’s must-see attractions are right at your fingertips. Addresses don’t come much better than this for exploring Rome.
The sleek guest rooms offer all the mod-cons you’d expect from a new hotel. Floors are made from polished black marble, while beds feature crisp white linens. Soothing grey furniture, including a desk and sofa, round out the neutral palette. Classic rooms measure 194 square feet, while Superior rooms are 237 square feet, and Executive rooms are larger still, at 269 square feet.
The hotel’s daily continental breakfast includes juices, coffee and pastries. In-room breakfast is also available. Later on, curl up with a nice glass of wine or a Campari at the exclusive Lounge Bar, or bring your own rations up to the rooftop terrace for a stunning sundowner. Otherwise, the neighborhood is filled with tempting restaurants, and many are lined up along Via Campania right outside the hotel.
The Tribune Hotel is conveniently located along Via Campania, a tree-lined street that looks out on the Aurelian Walls, which date back to the second century. Rome’s most gorgeous green space, Villa Borghese gardens, is a five-minute walk away, while the Spanish Steps (and nearby Metro station) are a pleasant 10-minute stroll. The area – Rome’s historic heart – is filled with upscale hotels and restaurants, and it’s just a short walk to the city’s best shopping.
How to Get There
Thankful that we were allowed early check in on request. We are a family of 3 with a child 12 yrs, the room allocated with an extra bed was super small, literally no space to walk once 3 suitcases were placed on the floor.
Housekeeping and coffee shop staff were friendly and helpful, front office lost out on potential for me to book another room night on my return from Florence, they never got back to me despite a couple of reminders. Stayed at Hotel Victoria then for which will give a separate review.
Only hotel I know which allows free consumption of mini bar for one time, includes 4 water and 3 soft beverages.
The interiors of the hotel lobby and room very dark and depressing, probably the trend and liked by a lot of people but this is a personal opinion. Free lime water available at lobby all the time is a good gesture.
Located about 20 minutes walk from all major attractions like Spanish steps, Trevi fountain and Via Del Corso for shopping.
San Marco is a good place to eat a minutes walk from the hotel.
When I go to Rome, the Tribune Hotel in on my itinerary for value, location, staff efficiency and friendliness, clean room and accessibility. Via Veneto is moments from your room. American Embassy just a short walk. Subways to anywhere another short walk. Thoroughly enjoyed our week in Rome and a lot of our satisfaction comes from Hotel Tribune.
This hotel is situated on the outskirts of Rome alongside the old wall. However it was a lesuirely stroll 10/15minutes down into the main city area and towards the sights.
The hotel is stylish and modern and looks very boutique in how its set out. The rooms are massive with a really comfy bed and ours had a massive double balcony which overlooked the old wall ruins and back into Rome.
The breakfast was good, however i wouldnt recommend the room service as the food wasnt that nice and it turned up cold.
A slight disapointment was that the rooftop bar isnt open all year round, so even though the weather was 24degrees, this remained shut for the duration of our stay.
Hotel staff were friendly and even helped find a safety pin for my partners dress one eveing.
Overall, it is slightly out of the way but we had a great stay here.
