Close to the center but not to close, just enough! Very kind personnel. Confort ok. Eat good and quantity.To be adviced! Not noisy. Close to the subway, Trevi and Spain place. Decoration friendly style roman.
We stayed several days at Hotel Imperiale on the Via Veneto which turned out to be a wonderful decision not only for the convenient location to the Barberini Metro in which to tour the entire city, but more importantly the outstanding customer service and hospitality of front desk personnel Pierluigi and Giada. They both were professional and extremely helpful in obtaining event tickets and directions in general. They both truly excel in their professions with their kind personalities and warm smiles. Please consider the Hotel Imperiale, you will be pleasantly surprised!
The location is very good, and in spite of current construction on the Metro, it's still easy to get anywhere in the city from Barberini station located just down the hill from the hotel.Rooms were well-furnished, but ultimately a bit dated. That being said, I'd take a slightly dated room over a loud room any day. Being next to the stairwell I was expecting some noise problems but there really wasn't anything past 20:00 so I'm grateful for that.My one big complaint is that there just aren't enough power outlets in the rooms. While I understand how difficult it is to change old construction like this, in my (considerably large) room, there were two grounded European outlets and another Italian standard. I appreciated the USB outlet though, but since I tend to use my phone as an alarm, putting it across the room at the desk wasn't as useful as it could've been.
My wife booked this hotel for me as a birthday surprise and, from everything I had read, I really couldn't wait to get here. When we arrived - well, it absolutely lived up to our expectations. We were taken to our room swiftly and the bellboy didn't hang around for a tip. The room itself (512 - top floor with two balconies) was exquisite. You don't get to see a lot as there are massive trees in front of you but that really isn't a problem whatsoever.It was a huge room, lovely bathroom (with jacuzzi bath), loads of hanging and drawer space, coffee machine, mini bar (5 Euros for a can of Coke, for example - not cheap at all). The curtains were heavy and thick, plus there were shutters outside so make sure there was no sign of the sun waking you up early. It was also fairly quiet.We had a drink in the evening at the bar which could be charged to our room or paid for cash - we opted for the latter.Everything up to this point was perfect. But when it came to trying to sleep, there was a MAJOR problem. The mattress was SO hard, I've honestly never known anything like it. Neither of us slept properly at all. When we raised it with the guy on reception the following morning he told us that all the beds were like that, with Orthopedic mattresses. I can only assume this means that you will need Orthopedic surgery if you sleep on one for too long. We said we may, therefore, need to find somewhere else to stay (we weren't funny about it. We just needed to sleep) and there was a suggestion that we would have to pay for two nights. It was only 10am so I was damned if I was going to do that! He eventually agreed that, if we left by midday, we would only be charged the one night.At 11:30am we checked out. He was going to charge us 2 days of the Rome Tourist Tax (the tax is actually meant to be applied on a nightly basis, not a daily basis!) and also tried to charge us for the drinks we had at the bar the night before. At this point I was very much less than amused.Anyway, we left, and were most relieved to get to our new hotel, despite it's far more modest nature.For reference, the breakfast was ok. There was plenty of choice but I can't say either of us was over-enamored with any of it. However, I also accept that not everything will be to one's taste when away from home, so there's no real criticism there.The whole hotel is also spotless and we rarely didn't see someone cleaning glass doors, polishing metalwork etc. They clearly have a lot of pride in the place. We just felt a little like it was just tough if you couldn't sleep and that there were opportunistic attempts to rip us off when checking out, which was a real shame.
The hotel was at prime location. Via veneto is a great street to stay on.The hotel is in walking distant of all of Rome's icon. Restaurants were all very close and shopping was great.Some hotel service staff was better than others.Hotel had great wifi and amazing restaurants. It was quite good value for what we had. Early check in was nice.
