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!
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.
The access to the sites in Rome. The quality of the superior room.
very central to rome attractions clean comfortable no bar or resturant
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.
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.
nothing many things
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
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.
Liked the location, the room, facilities, breakfast The air conditioning wasnt working properly.
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.
everything was excellent, but the breakfast was poor
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.
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.
Excellent service from all sectors ! Rooms are cleaned twice a day !
Locations is great, hospitality was great, hotel atmosphere is excellent. Mix between classic and trendy. Breakfast.
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.
Friendly staff and good location Room service, mini-bar, etc were very expensive
location near good restaurants and comfort no
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!
Wonderful staff with first rare service.
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.
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.
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 is in a convenient location. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly.
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.
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.
Good location, helpful staff ,beautiful hotel. Would stay there again. Very small room and lack of a business center with computers
The staff were extreemly helpful!
We enjoyed the comp. bottle of champagne to celebrate our aniversary.
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.
Eloquent, classy, clean and helpful!
i like Mr.Luca very helpful person the terrasa was closed ..if i need ice for example i have to pay service 5 euros
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.
The rooms, designs and the hotel staff. no nothing
Location Service and attitude. No internet working - wifi or hotel computers out of order
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....
The amazing 19th century builting. It's a trip in the past. Amazing. Service.
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 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 view. excelent deco. no ice machine
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 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.
Service was superb. Classic elegance and at the same time, very convenient. Access from the main Piazza and to the marina.
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.
location Altough it has been mainteined good, the building is very old.
location, view, comfort, services speed of in room house keyboard internet very slow
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.
Location Small room.
location, staff they cleaned our room just when we put "please make up our room" note; no russian TV channesl
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.
- The location. - The services. Nothing
Excellent location - so close to thre Pantheon and walking distance from main sights.
Everything at the hotel was superb.
the hotel was great. professional staff. excellent and convinient location n/a
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.
room service was very good The hotel need to have a waterpool,if it will be possible
the breakfast does not correspond to it's very high price
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 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.
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.
the fact that is at the centre of rome
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.........
The location Oldish
Located close to the Spanish Steps
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.)
small room very small bathroom not a 5 star room lucky to rate 3
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 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 hotel is luxurious and well run. I felt the excessive charge to use the internet was unecessary.
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
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.
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
they upgraded us to a suite too close to trevi fountain so there were too many people up and down the street; chose because breakfast was said to be so good-- we have had better.
1. location 2. room breakfast is to correspond to the price (quality and choice are very poor)
Closeness to city centre; still quiet and cosy Reception personnel a bit cold; other personnel very friendly
Excellent location for tourists. Front desk staff lacked smile, and not very helpful apart from the very basics.
Location was excellent and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Room was excellent - very clean and comfortable.
Location was great. Room size for Europe was very good. Had room with terrace which was nice. Will stay again in future and recommend highly to others.
Central location, clean rooms, well working aircon Staff at reception was too formal, no way to get a smile...Breakfast is out of wack for a 4* hotel, internet should be free and not at euros 20/hr...
extremely close to all points of interest in Rome city including all classical sites. Reasonably quiet, if that is at all possible in Rome. The restaurant was not appealing to us: the prices were quite high, the service was slow and it was right next to a major traffic artery as well as the to the foot pass leading to Fontana Trevi.
The hotel was in an excellent location. The memory foam beds were extremely comfortable. We especially enjoyed the private patio. The bathroom was not clean. There were dirty fingerprints on the wall and even a bloody one. Breakfast food was very good but the waitresses were very impatient with guests when the coffee machine was out of order.
Excellent room, bathroom and hotel Poor service, arrogant and unhelpful staff made interactions with reception unpleasant. "Attempts" were made to service the room after 2pm each day exactly when we returned to our room after spending the morning and early afternoon sightseeing. This poor timing of the proposed servicing of the room was obviously intentional so as to avoid servicing the room. No soaps where replaced during the 4 night stay. Initially laundry was not done even after making a special trip to reception to obtain forms and understanding of their proposed laundry procedure. Laundry was only completed after an argument with reception. The hotel stay was not good because although the hotel is great but management is very poor
Location was good, close to shops and attractions. Breakfast was plain but acceptable.
great location. some staff helpful. One man behind front desk was rude! I know standard check in is not until 3pm. He first tells me he'll get my room ready by 230 or so. OK, I sit and wait til 315PM, he has totally forgotten me after letting other folks in. then he disappears. Finally I ask and another manager lets me in my room and apologies.
The location is excellent, near the tube station and walking distance from little restaurants and shops, and one of the main attractions in Rome, the Fontena di Trevi The breakfast, despite being a buffet didn't have a great choice, there was no fresh coffee (in Italy come on..!!)...we did ask for a quadruple room and as we were 2 couples, one of us had to have 2 separate beds as they couldn't provide 2 double beds..which was a shame..and it was soo noisy at nights, shame about it!
I liked the location
Nice location on the Via Venito close to the Metro station. Lots of very good restaurants nearby and walking distance to the Spanish Steps. The service was wonderful and most of the front desk staff spoke English. Everyone was helpful and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The bathroom was very tight. The wifi worked well in the lobby, but our room was at the far end of the third floor hall and the signal was off and on.
The staff was incredibly helpful AND always so cheerful! The rooms were beautifully appointed. It's in a great location that's beautiful (especially at night) but not overrun with tourists. A little more info on the Metro & where/how to buy tickets would have been great.
very good location!the metro station nearby.shoping and historical area 10 minutes walking! the back room was very small but when we complained about that ,they change us to a front room(via venetto) who was very nice and much bigger!very bad coffe in breakfast.in Italy??
I liked that the hotel was in the center of Rome I think it was very expensive for what you get...
Welcoming staff. Good location. Real continental breakfast (acceptable variety of the food). Cleaning of the room can be done later. Sound isolation could be improved. Bad coffee served during the breakfast.
The location is perfect. Really nice breakfast. Nice spaces for chat with friends. Very kind and helpful staff. There was no control of heating/air-conditioning in every room.
We stay at the Imperiale every time we go to Rome...Always a pleasure!!
Literally not much. I think some part of our stay should be refunded. If not for the terrible event in the morning the for the misadvertisement of ammenities. We were late for our train had already paid for our room. I have stayed in four and five star hotels plenty. Not saying we didn't look young or scruffy but in no way we're we staying above our means. We tried to leave quickly in the morning they assumed we trashed the room they locked us inside the lobby, and threatened to call the police if we left before they checked. So I tried to explain they had my credit card and passport on file and I would give them my phone number if there were any issues my best friend who I was traveling with pleads with him in Italian and he starts yelling at my friend physically restraining him. It was disgusting behavior for a four star hotel. Also there was no gym which they advertised they had and essentially was the only reason we booked the hotel. This would never fly any where else I have stayed it was truly deplorable, but more then that I was just disappointed to have had search for a place that seemed nice and welcoming and comfortable, a break from the rest of our journey, and instead been sucked into a place with so little respect for its clientele. It's on a horribly touristy street filled with a couple bad restaurants a Hard Rock Cafe and a strip club. Although there is a fantastic wine shop around the corner with a very sweet owner.
