The location was good and the hotel was convenient for sightseeing in Rome as it was only a 15 minute walk from the coloseum and Trevi fountain. We chose an economy room which I wouldn't recommend as the beds are far too small for two people.
Liked the location, the room, facilities, breakfast The air conditioning wasnt working properly.
location was a plus factor, surrounded by many cafes/restaurants, metro and bus station close by, although all major sites within walking distance the superior room i booked looked contemporary with nice furnishings, however on arrival we were allocated something completely different, when i complained i was informed there was more than one type of superior room, it was only when i refused to move from reception that the room i thought i had booked was allocated to us so beware you may end up at the front of the hotel overlooking a very busy/loud main road. Stated television with internarional channels, only one english one - BBC World News ! No tea/coffee making facilities in the room - unacceptable for the price we paid.
very central to rome attractions clean comfortable no bar or resturant
location was great!!! in the middle of via nationale, great shopping area, very close to the metro ( 5 mins walk). WIFI connection and for those who don't have laptops, there is a business room in the lobby. The hotel is infront of a great cafe that also has reasonable prices. No breakfest included... hotel staff should have more knowledge of places to go and recommend more specific places.
Excellent, modern and clean room, with a large bathroom Check-in and front counter staff were frequently distracted (on the phone, etc) and at times not particularly helpful
nothing many things
Location is good all room facilities was old. Awful service, unhelpful and somethimes rude. The room was very smal and uncorfotable. There is no air conditioner. Our windows look on yard. And every morning we woke because of someone`s talking loudly in the yard. We cant even see the sky, because of tightness of the yard. Absolutely awful breakfast. noone from the staff pay attention to you. The salad was spoiled, pineapples turn sour. I will never stop in this hotel. it may have 2 star, not 4!
The access to the sites in Rome. The quality of the superior room.
Excellent position, 10 min walk to Piazza Venezzia, 25 min walk to Trevi Fountain. Good area, beautiful architectural buildings There is room to improve the staff at the reception, and the staff at the restaurant.
Locations is great, hospitality was great, hotel atmosphere is excellent. Mix between classic and trendy. Breakfast.
We had some difficulties with our booking due to unclear communication with bookings.com but the hotel staff, in particular Claudio was fantastic and sorted it out for us very pleasantly and efficiently. He was also excellent with recommendations for sightseeing tours, restaurants etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fantastic hotel.Kind regards,Susan and Max.
best location that can be for family, center, but quiet. stayed with the kid and the room was upgraded to Delux triple for free. Very good terrace to have brcfst or lunch.
The location of the hotel is fabulous! I could walk to the Borgese Gardens, the Trevi Fountain, The Spanish Steps and the Colloseum! The shopping in the area was fantastic! I only eat fruit in the morning and I found the fruit salad skimpy, composed mainly of apples and swimming in a sea of orange juice from concentrate. Surely a 5 star hotel should have a wonderful fresh fruit salad, with melon, kiwi, pineapple and berries.
A lovely, elegant hotel located in a prime location! Excellent and very attentive service. Hotel staff made me feel very welcome and was extremely helpful in providing information about restaurants and things to see. I requested an early check-in and the hotel was able to acccomodate me. I would definitely stay there again. It was a little tricky trying to adjust the water temperature in the shower.
Friendly staff and good location Room service, mini-bar, etc were very expensive
everything was excellent, but the breakfast was poor
location near good restaurants and comfort no
Excellent service from all sectors ! Rooms are cleaned twice a day !
Couldn't ask for better location as a first time visitor. You can reach all the tourist spots on foot (that's what I did even though bus stops are only round the corner). Very good breakfast. Room size - so small that I couldn't find any space to put my 'closed' suitcase.
Hotel is centrally locaed; its public spaces are modern and our standard room, which appeared to have been recently renovated, had a nice old world charm with high ceilins and beautiful finishes.
Friendly, helpful staff. Clean & bright. Reasonably priced considering it is in the centre of Rome. We intend to return to the city & intend to stay at the Cosmopolita again.; The room was slightly small. The shower cubicle was very small.
location is wonderful, right in the city center very noisy on Sunday night with disco pub downstairs till midnight, room is very small and narrow, too expensive with such poor facility
location of the hotel is excellent for all main attractions and restaurants The hotel staff were unfriendly and a touch unhelpful, especially reception. Breakfast was a little disappointing too
Location was excellent - also had very good lunch, breakfast and coffee facilities
I would recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, fantastic location and very friendly staff.
the Place no view from the window
Very well located, confortable and good value for price. Room quite small, but acceptable for short accomodation.
Excellent location and breakfast. The room.was pretty small but.nice
The staff was friendly and helpfull. The central location is superior. The old world charm and beauty of the public areas, marble, frescoes and stained glass harks back to what the lap of luxury was like at the turn of the century when this hotel was no doubt reserved for the top upper class of society. Because the hotel is over 100 years old she shows her age and has not been kept up to the standards of a Five Star Hotel. She is a bit run down and in the rooms it appears that the money needed to maintain the standerd to which it claims is lacking. The glamour of what may once have been the best hotel in Rome has long since past. She is a grand old lady who is in need of some tender loving care.
Absolutely NOTHING to like or enjoy here at all. This is by far the worst hotel I've stayed in more than 25 cities in my latest trip to Italy. When you consider this is somehow rated a 5 star star hotel (???) it is the worst value for money in the history of hotels. It is literally a 2 star hotel and a bad one - it's a hell hole and a huge tourist trap. They gave me a room with no AC and no hot water! I repeat, NO HOT WATER. On top of it all, even if I had gotten a proper room with hot water, hotel is old anyways and facilities extremely old and dirty, filthy rooms. Wifi does not work nor does 4g/3g signal. Internet access is only possible outside of the hotel. Breakfast is one of the worst I've seen in Italy (or anywhere). They did not deliver what a two star hotel would have. That's all late in the evening after a tiring trip for me and my girlfriend. After hours of discussion and no solution offered whatsoever, I was finally able to talk to the hotel manager. The manager is this French guy who barely speaks some broken English and couldn't care less. All he could say is that things didn't go as planned with maintenance and that it wasn't his fault. Out of the few things he mumbled, he may have offered a drink at the bar or something along those lines, to make up for NO HOT WATER, NO AC, NO WIFI, dirty room, lousy breakfast, and the worst service I've ever seen in a hotel or hostel or any type of housing establishment in the world. The discussion went on for 3 days and no solution was offered at all. This is by far the worst experience I've had in Italy and the worst I've ever had in any hotel anywhere (I've traveled 50+ countries). The cherry on top was the itchy feeling in the end of my stay due to what could have been bed bugs. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place at all costs. Avoid yourself A LOT of stress and a living nightmare and stay as far away from this place as possible.
The hotel is very beautiful. looks like one of the attractions in rome. The room (regular) was very big, alot of space. The location of the hotel is perfect The breakfast was OK, not worth 25 Euro tho. The table by the bed had stuff glued on it and the lamp swich was sticky, but except of it the room's cleaning was fine.
Location, The luxury of the 19th century and a kind of new roman decadence... It's a political matter.....but nice ! rooms , poor of confort, decoration,bathroom, all thonks that imbeliveble for a 5star hotel..!!!! even a international plug for eletrical shave in te bathroom....
Location Did not have Room booked had to pay 200 euros per nite extra for a room available. no heat, room cold .Bkft 1st day bad, got sick spent day in bed diarrhea. Great hotel at one time in need of repairs and renovation. No 5 Star. Restaurant filthy ,shower broke, electrical wires in open in room. Lived and visited Europe every year since 1961. Been to Rome 20 times worst experience.Have pic tires to compare to hotels website, big difference.Front desk not friendly or helpful
The amazing 19th century builting. It's a trip in the past. Amazing. Service.
the view. excelent deco. no ice machine
Location Service and attitude. No internet working - wifi or hotel computers out of order
i like Mr.Luca very helpful person the terrasa was closed ..if i need ice for example i have to pay service 5 euros
Location was unbeatable. Staff was not very helpful. Room was comfortable but nothing fancy by any means. The pillows were hard as a rock and no Wi-Fi that I could access..
The rooms, designs and the hotel staff. no nothing
The hotel was what I expected, and suited all my requirements The terrace restaurant and bar on the roof of the hotel is a huge disappointmnet. As a woman travelling alone I was made to feel distinctly unwelcome. Moreover, the food was not what one would expect at the price.
location, staff they cleaned our room just when we put "please make up our room" note; no russian TV channesl
location Altough it has been mainteined good, the building is very old.
Location, Roof Terrace Room was poor, not refurbished, Bidet did not work (water pressure low), dark, looking to the inner side. We booked a room directly at Hotel Minerva in December 2009 and got a much better, larger room for the same price. Obviously booking.com is getting the low-cost left-overs.
location, view, comfort, services speed of in room house keyboard internet very slow
Location Small room.
- The location. - The services. Nothing
The roof restaraunt and bar were great. The room was small and the bed matress was very hard and uncomfortable. The rooms were too modern--when you go to Europe you want to stay where the rooms are old fashion and full of past times.
Excellent location - so close to thre Pantheon and walking distance from main sights.
Service was superb. Classic elegance and at the same time, very convenient. Access from the main Piazza and to the marina.
The location was why we chose this hotel. We were a twenty minute hoof to St. Peter's one way, and five minutes to the Coliseum the other way. It was a great home base from which to explore the eternal city. We were also surprised when they upgraded our room at check in. Room size was outstanding for an older hotel. We've stayed in many dozens of old hotels throughout Europe, so we are not surprised when some parts of the experience are a little ragged. It had been unusually warm. I figured the building's environmental systems had been switched over to heat for the winter, so our room was uncomfortably warm. After a shower, the tub took a long time to drain fully. The minibar was restocked before our second night. Even though we took nothing from it, we were charged for items used by previous guests. Lastly, we did not get turn-down service on our last night. But these kinds of missed details are typical for Europe, and did not bother us.
Wonderful staff with first rare service.
The staff was amazing. They all knew our names from the moment we checked in and made us feel very welcome and at home. The concierge provided excellent recommendations for food which was always spectacular and reasonably priced. The Palm Court bar is an Art Deco fantasy. Our BEST stay in Rome, and we have been many times. We will only stay at the Hassler in the future!
Location, friendliness of staff, The rooms at the 5Th floor were unproper of a 5 star hotel, the price is over to high
Location Un renovated rooms, wifi doesn't work well and they make you pay for it, we had to change rooms. This hotel needs to be renovated. This is really not a small leading hotel or a 5 stars hotel as marketed
Convenient possition. Room in need of decoration for standard of hotel.
All ok excpt the air condition. Air condition was bad not cooling enough.
Location was excellent. On a quiet road so not noisy. Staff were not very friendly. Restaurant suggestions were not great and no irons to borrow which surprised us for a 5 star.
the location is perfect to see all the sights. it's very central to the Spanish steps and with in walking distance to the rest of the city it wasn't as upscale as we thought it was going to be, and for the price breakfast should have been included
The location is great. The room was comfortable enough. The hotel lounge was cozy. No wireless connection, despite the hotel staff is persuaded there is one. Ethernet connection + movies overpriced. Multimedia defficiency for a 5 star hotel.
The location is excellent for a good short holiday in Rome. Central. We did not like the first room were put in: room 379: tacky and filthy carpet and aged cranky bathroom.
location II was upgraded from Junior Suit to a Executive suit which had a nice bedroom and a larger then a corridor made up to a living room.You had to watch the TV from a distance of perhaps 2 meters.There was another room with a table in the middle with 4 chairs nothing else which was useless.very small lifts.
Staff was very helpful, location is close to nice places such as Spanish steps and via veneto. Price is a bit over-rated in comparison with what the hotel can offer
The hotel was lovely and on a quiet street, by Rome standards. The staff were great. I had erroriously booked a single and didn't realize until we checked in. They quickly fixed my error and we weren't charged any extra rate. They were friendly and so helpful. I needed a couple of "C" batteries after frying an appliance. They went out of their way to find me one and left it in the room while we went to dinner. The included breakfast was absolutely fabulous and we had dinner at the hotel restaurant and it was also very good. Our room was very spacious, comparable to very nice US hotels and the bathroom was huge and very clean. The housekeeping staff did a great job daily. All and all, it was great to come "home" after a long day of sight-seeing and relax. We would most certainly stay at Sofitel Rome again.
We enjoyed the comp. bottle of champagne to celebrate our aniversary.
Eloquent, classy, clean and helpful!
Good location, helpful staff ,beautiful hotel. Would stay there again. Very small room and lack of a business center with computers
The hotel is in a convenient location. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly.
The staff were extreemly helpful!
I'm usually pretty critical of hotels but the staff at this one was great, from the doormen and valets to the front desk and concierge. Good job by all of them. Also, the internet was wired, fast and reliable, usually hard to find at most hotels, so key to my happiness there. The rest was standard fare, rooms were good, room service food ok but expensive, nice bar on the roof, etc. The only thing I didn't like was standard european convention of a "king" bed not being a king mattress but really being 2 small twin beds pushed together. It leads to many sore backs in the morning, or falling into the gap in the center.
Efficiency of staff and service. Breakfast could have had more fresh fruit--v limited selection of fresh fruit. Would have liked a sofa area in the room.
The entire staff was superb. They were professional, helpful, friendly and hospitable. We arrived early in the morning and they made a room available for us to use until our other room was ready. Breakfast was included in our room rate. The breakfast selections were outstanding. It did not have an exercise facility and the rooms did not have an iron and ironing board.
The staff were excellent - pleasant and helpful at all times. The roof top restaurant was disappointing. The quality and presentation of food was reasonable but not to the standard expected for the prices charged; a limited menu.
The interior decor was very attractive. It is convenient although located in an unattractive piazza. Excellent air conditioning which is important in August. The hotel could have included a continental breakfast in the room rate.
the fact that is at the centre of rome
The hotel is near from everything and the food is very nice. Booking.com has many comments about bad service employees ... I think only three people have this bad reputation ... one of these is an old man and another is a very young woman working for breakfast...they are very angry. Another employee is a young man working at the terrace restaurant and thinks he is the most ... all other employees are very careful and helpful.
great placement to go anywhere in Rome. bar + resto at top floor is amazing view!! a bit old style hotel and it was written that there is a gym + spa, but they are very old and small....
the hotel was great. professional staff. excellent and convinient location n/a
the breakfast does not correspond to it's very high price
room service was very good The hotel need to have a waterpool,if it will be possible
The location is good and from the roof terrace you have a nice city view. We had room 212, located next to a service room where at 05:00 in the morning sound of voices and TV came thru the adjoining door.
Everything at the hotel was superb.
small room very small bathroom not a 5 star room lucky to rate 3
the best was the location, this is out of question, amazinf spot, but for the price thge hoytel was just ok, and the service just ok as well there is nothing really bad but to my advice trhe people working there do not know thar tjere is alot of unemployement now in Europe.........
hotel staff,cleanliness,posision in Rome The price was very hi for the offer.I accepted trough booking.com because of transcripcion and pictures, witch vere unapropriate. This is second time the same thing with booking.com reservation.First time hapened with Hotel Starhotels Splendid in Milan!! You should do something.
The location Oldish
The most important thing about this hotel is its location. It is located exactly on the Spanish Steps I thought the rooms were small and were overpriced.
I loved everything about the hotel. The rooms were great and the beds were sooo comfortable. We had been in Italy for a couple weeks and it was the best place we stayed at!!
Excellent staff--especially the duty managers and concierge staff. While our room was very comfortable, it was a tad smallish (appeared to be built for a single bed yet had a king wedged into it.)
It is a pleasant hotel over all , the roof top cocktail bar and the breakfast areas are in keeping and enjoyable ares of the hotel , but there are areas within the hotel starting to need a little attention . This hotel is rated 5 star and I expect it to perform to it ratings , it fell short of its ratings ,compering with many other 5 star hotel I have stated in , hence to the value.
best location and service.
Located close to the Spanish Steps
Hotel is stylish and clean and there's an old world grandeur about it which I liked. Bed was very comfortable and restaurant area on second floor was very pretty. I enjoyed my stay overall. Room and bathroom assigned to us were just slightly too small I think. But otherwise it was fine. We discovered that there is a lift that takes you up and down the Spanish Steps too late. The hotel staff did not tell us about it which I found odd. Although the hotel is central, psychologically, the thought of all those steps is a little offputting - it's not the sort of hotel you feel you can just nip back up to in a minute. I think the hotel should at least inform you about the lift on your arrival.
The hotel was very clean and furnished beautifully. The location is great. It is massively over-priced. The bedrooms are relatively small for the cost (I had to move furniture everytime I wished to go onto the balcony or dry my hair in front of a mirror) and although the view from the restaurant is stunning, the service wasn't anything special given the extortionate prices - in fact we expected much better.
Comfortable hotel, super view of the city from the roof top bar No Sky sports channels on the TV. Cost of drinks in the bar
hotel is not comparable with other 5 star hotels in Rome. . the hallways need a paint job hotel is not comparable with other 5 star hotels in Rome. . the hallways need a paint job
The location for the Eden is wonderful - close enough to the sites, while in a quiter luxurious neighborhood in Rome near the Villa Borghese Gardens. The public rooms are beautiful and service impeccible. our rooms were nicely appointed however did not have good views. The rooms have no carpets, bare wooden floors and there is no outlet in the bathrooms for hairdryer use. When I called the concierge to inquire how one could use the hairdryer in the bathroom I was informed that you must use the hairdryer at the desk in the bedroom. There is only one outlet there and so I had to unplug a lamp to plug in the hairdryer that is supplied by the hotel (clearly a woman was not present when designing these rooms and bathrooms!). Otherwise, an elegant spot in Rome and it was a very good value!!
The staff at the Eden are excellent, especially the very helpful and knowledgeable concierge. The rooms are pleasant, clean and well-maintained and the view from the restaurant is gorgeous. The hotel is located at the top of the Spanish Steps, which means you either have to like to walk, or you're taking cabs everywhere. The upside is that it's very quiet.
The hotel is luxurious and well run. I felt the excessive charge to use the internet was unecessary.
