Bernini Bristol Hotel
- What's Included
The hotel is located within walking distance to many local sites of interest... like the Trevi Fountains, the Spanish Steps, etc. There are numerous restaurants close by the hotel that excel in quality of food and service. The room was large with a spacious bathroom that included all of the amenities, especially fast Wi-Fi. The staff were very friendly and eager to serve one's needs.
The rooms and views were amazing; the view of St. Peter's Basilica was spectacular. The bathroom was bigger than most hotel rooms in Europe; mine had a tub and shower so I took a bubble bath one night to recover from my 30,000+ steps taken each day playing tourist. The only complaint I had was the penthouse restaurant/bar. The first night, I tried to have drinks out on the rooftop, and was told they only had food service out there. The second night, I planned on having dinner on the balcony, but they said they had no service. The weather was good, so it should have been open.
We stayed at the Bernini Bristol as part of a cruise package. We are quite experienced Rome travelers, but had never stayed here before...and will not do so again. The entire place has a tired feeling about it. The rooms need refreshing, and need updating to reflect the needs of modern travelers (better lighting, better electronic outlets, etc), and the place seems to have become a place for busloads of tourists (of which, on this occasion, we were part of.) On the good side, the breakfast buffet was well done, and on the downside, the bar service (in the lobby and on the roof) was slow, desultory and uninterested in the customer. There are SO many better hotels in Rome....why sta here unless, as we were, it was part of your cruise and you needed to be there for the transfer to Civitavecchia?
Lovely hotel in a good location within walking distance to most sites. We were upgraded to a great room with an outdoor patio. There was an MIA convention that took over most of the hotel and their signs and banners were annoyingly everywhere. They even rented the entire upstairs restaurant one evening as we were told we were not welcome to even take pictures of the sunset. Breakfast buffet was unspectacular and understaffed. Concierge recommended a local restaurant that was just ok and had a $12 cover and overpriced dishes.
Located at the top to Via del Tritone, the rooftop dining room has a commanding view of the city and the dome of St. Peter's to the southwest. The rooms are generous in size and the staff generous in spirit. To start the day the Bristol Barberini sets an elegant, generous buffet breakfast that we very much enjoyed. For art lovers, the Palazzo Barberini is only a few steps away, food lovers can explore the many restaurants along the via side streets and shoppers can stroll to the neighborhood round the Spanish Steps for the finest shops. All-in-all an excellent experience, highly recommended.
