- What's Included
We spent seven nights at this hotel and found it an excellent base for sightseeing and transport options. A ten minute walk in one direction and you reach the Spanish steps and a ten minute walk downhill and you reach the Trevi Fountain. At the top of the Via Venetto on which the hotel is situated is the expanse of the Villa Borghese Park. If you enjoy walking, the Partheon and the Piazza Navona are within easy distance. Metro station is on the doorstop and access to tour buses all around. Taxis are reasonable and the hotel staff have companies who respond quickly.The hotel is bright and modern when you enter and the reception staff are very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast selection was good and wide ranging and the coffee was excellent. There is a hotel restaurant housed in a covered and air conditioned glass gazebo outside. We did not sample it on this visit as we wanted to wander further afield but it seemed popular and the menu on display looked good.As a flight/hotel package travellers, our room was a standard double. Bedroom was on the small side which I believe is fairly normal in hotels in the city centre. The bathroom was particularly small but had all the necessary requirements. The room was clean and well looked after although a refresh of décor would be an improvement.All staff were friendly, helpful and polite and always seemed to have a smile and a welcome.There only seemed to be one lift which was limited for the number of rooms.
Hotel Imperiale is beautifully decorated and in a beautiful tree lined street. Fantastic location to explore all the sites on foot. Breakfast is good and staff friendly and helpful. Next time I will get a room with a terrace to enjoy the view.
Hotel should be 3* rather than 4. Breakfast options could be better. On 1st morning only thing available was scrambled egg. I saw another guest with bacon etc when i asked they said no. I was down at 8.30 so was not as though we were late. Had better breakfast at other hotels. BE AWARE other reviewers claim to have got 'free' upgrade to balcony room. I got charged 120 euro. Supposed to be 'superior' but nothing superior about it. Robe and slippers maybe but defo not worth 120 euro. Also if you are lucky enough to get a coffee machine, every time you want a pod for the machine you have to go to reception. Charged 5 euro for one small glass bottle of coke. A bit pricey, but maybe thats just rome, a lot of places too expensive to eat, look around. Air conditioning and fridge not that great.
This hotel is in a brilliant location to explore Rome. It is only a few yards away from one of the main metro stations and is within easy walking distance to many tourist attractions (10-20 mins walk). The staff are friendly and helpful and everyone always greeted you, whether reception staff, those on breakfast duty, cleaners etc. The room was clean and tidy. The bathroom was spotless but would benefit from some updating. However, overall the room was more than adequate to use as a base for exploration. One nice inclusion was a USB port next to the plug socket which you could use to charge phones etc. The rooms are air conditioned which was a godsend as it was 37/38 degrees when we were there!!The breakfast was ok... Standard Continental fare (pastries, ham, cheese etc) as well as toast, eggs, sausage, cereals etc. Tip: they will happily give you a cappuccino at breakfast, but there is no machine there, you have to ask. Otherwise, standard coffee, tea, fruit juices etc.Some tips for Rome: - if your hotel is near a metro station, don't bother with a taxi from the airport.... It's cheaper to go by train and really easy - there's a train from the airport direct to Termini, a kind of hub station. This links to the two major train routes. It's 14 euro each for the train to Termini, then you get a ticket to your station. It's worth getting a 3 day metro ticket at €7 if you plan on using it. The trains are very easy to use - a much smaller system than the London Underground. A taxi from the airport is €48. If there's a few of you, you can get a shuttle bus/large taxi at €35.- the 'skip the queue' tickets for the Vatican are expensive, but WELL worth the money. We went first thing in the morning and the queue was already right round the block! Pay the extra and go in. The guides are good too. There is an expectation that shoulders and knees are covered when you go in, be warned. You can just wear a shawl over your shoulders though. A lot of the churches expect this, but it is not always enforced (but I'd err on the side of caution to be on the safe side).- alcohol is not cheap. We found a great little cafe/bar just by the hotel - 3 large beers and two nice glasses of wine (and 2 bowls of free crisps!) for €20! Owner was lovely. It's called Cafe Lembo - go up the marble stairs to the left of the hotel, turn left down the cobble street, turn right and it's a few shops up opposite. They did pastries and sandwiches too which looked good.- eat around the Spanish steps, it's cheaper than around the hotel and the food was good.- lastly, you MUST go over the road and look at the bone chapel, Santa Maria della Concezione - it has to be seen to be believed!!!Overall, I would recommend the hotel, it's location is superb and the staff are friendly. We would happily stay there if we make a return visit.
This hotel is in a great location for all Romes 'must see' sights. We walked to all of them from here with out too much effort .... even in the recent heatwave!Double room and bathroom with air con, spotless and very comfortable.Staff are knowledgeable, friendly and super efficient. We had great advice regarding good eateries and hassle free shopping. All in all a great place to stay!
