The Duke Hotel is a peaceful, four-star boutique retreat in Rome. The hotel's classically-styled interior is cool and inviting, with high ceilings, wooden floors and stained-glass skylights. Complimentary breakfasts and first-class service from multilingual staff make for a comfortable stay at the Duke. Climb inside the complimentary Mercedes Benz shuttle for a ride to Piazza del Popolo, a historic square in Rome's city center, before returning to dine on seasonal Italian dishes served with creative flair in the on-site restaurant I Duchi.

Neighborhood
The Duke Hotel is just a few minutes' walk from the gorgeous Villa Borghese Park. Stroll through these lovely, landscaped gardens and enjoy the art collection in the Villa Borghese itself, which includes works by Titian, Raphael and Caravaggio. Enjoy the history in which Villa Borghese is steeped - constructed at the beginning of the 17th century for Cardinal Scipione Caffarelli Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V. The famous Spanish Steps lead off the gardens, and Rome's Zoo is also here, easily reached on foot.
Hints and tips
A complimentary shuttle service leaves from the hotel every half hour or so, but bear in mind that it only seats seven. At busy times, it's advisable to pre-book the shuttle to secure your preferred traveling time.

Spoil yourself with an in-room massage to rejuvenate after a day spent strolling Rome's cobbled streets.

A great hotel stay

The Duke Hotel is truly a 4 star hotel. The staff was very helpful, we don't speak Italian and it did not seem to matter-their english is great. The hotel offers a breakfast that is wonderful and truly 4 star. They offer a shuttle to the city center, which is quite a walk (about 1 and a half miles) We walked it but if you want to take advantage of the shuttle, you need to reserve at the front desk as it only seats 7. The hotel is quite as it is set in a residential area. There is a grocery store a 10 minute walk from the hotel. All in all I would recommend this hotel to friends and family!!

Overall it was great.

My only complaint is the bed was hard as a rock. I don't know if all rooms are that way (I didn't ask to switch rooms) but the room I stayed in had a board for a mattress. The location was not the best either. On the upside though, they had free shuttle rides to City Center that made the location acceptable. The location sits on top of a hill in a residential area so there aren't any restaurants or attractions anywhere close. The staff was GREAT and the room was beautiful. I would stay here again, for sure!

Great place to stay

Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable. Balcony was an add-on we didn't expect. Quiet restful place was fun to come to at the end of a busy day walking and sight seeing. Breakfast was the same every day but artfully presented, tasty and plentiful. Took the courtesy van into the city center every day. Even though they give you a schedule for the van, you need to make reservations ahead of time for both way travel otherwise there may not be enough room for you on the 7 sitter van.

nice hotel

Great hotel unfortunately on 1st night, informed that reservation was cancelled, hotel error. Alternative hotel provided for 1st night and offered complimentary 3 course meal. Collected from tempory hotel and stayed for the next 3 nights. Good breakfast and pleasant staff. Perhaps an error on the reservation by the hotel but another couple had the same problem.

Peaceful get-away after a busy day's sightseeing

A delightful hotel away from the hustle and bustle. The desk staff were very able and willing to deal with problems. Under Location we have put "needs that something special" - well, it has it, a free shuttle service every half hour down to where the action starts. We only ate in the hotel the evening of our arrival and two of four of us didn't enjoy the experience but the breakfasts were fantastic, even bacon and scrambled egg at no extra cost. We got an exceptionally good deal at this hotel and would rate it very highly as excellent value for money.

Rome Vacation

If this hotel is considered to be a four star hotel, then Econo Lodge and Best Western are luxury resorts. The only thing we are happy about that the hotel didn't have bed bugs. I would not recommend to stay in this hotel if you are expecting a four star experience. And if you stay, then be prepared that after 12 hours of travelling you will be greeted with the news that they don't have any rooms available( even if you already paid for it and requested late check-in), but they will be happy to take you to the different hotel for that night and give you an upgrade the next day which includes cracked bathroom flloor tiles, mold above the toilet and the fancy radio system in the bathroom that doesn't work. Also be prepared that your room will not be cleaned every day. For some reason staff there goes to your room, moves a piles of dirty towels from one corner of the room to another and then chooses to hang "privacy please" on your door without cleaning it. Furthermore, be prepared that 5 minutes there is at least half an hour, and you have to call a couple times before they bring you fresh towels. Two pros this hotel has: Mercedes shuttle that they use to take guests to the center city and employee Luigi who is the only one friendly face there. Also, if you decide to have a breakfast there, be prepared than everything will not be out until 7.30, and the employees would cus you out if you come in at 7( since that's the time breakfast suppose to start). Hotel is located well outside of the city center. Make sure to schedule all your entertaintments around there free shuttle time, otherwise you have to take a taxi, as taking a bus is not a desireable option, unless you enjoy a scary ride by urban bus and then a 10-15 minutes fast uphill looking over your shoulder walk. If you are looking for better option, then check out The River Chateau Hotel. This is the hotel they provided for us the first night and we wish we could stay there for the whole week.

4days in Rome

The room was clean over all but I had to ask for air freshener a few times. The internet in the business center didn't work or in my room bad connection. The hotel was a residential type area away from the main areas and the shuttle was not always available at the time you need it considering it could only seat 8. Over all the stay was good staff was helpful.

welcome ....

we booked the hotel with late arrival and paid before . receptionist , only one available at 19.00 . He told there was no booking for us , and all rooms where full . Offered an other 4* hotel but we refused . We did not move and made a scene where other guest could be served at that same time . We booked a a room with 2 beds and wrote also an email to their own email address nothing received , he said . There was no manager . We where there 30 minutes and said to other guest you and we paid and we want a room like the others . Then he called a manager but he was out and not at home he called again and then there was a room available with one bed . We accepted it and once in the room we split the beds ourselves made up our beds and fall good a sleep . Next morning apologises from another recepcionist . breakfast very good , much more than only coffee and bread . You could other even cappuccino without extra charge ! Car service to Piazza del Popolo , just call them and tell them your time ! Very friendly drivers . Rooms NOT to small , only for tv you get 5 Italian canals and the rest you have to pay , as far we understood . I recommend this hotel , sure .

Not bad for a First Trip to Rome

The Hotel was nice. It was a little older, but well kept and clean. The staff was friendly. There is a tax that is implemented by a new law that charged like $5 a night per person in every hotel in Rome, so expect to pay more when you leave. The Website is nicer than the hotel itself, so don't expect a palace. One thing that was very helpful was the free shuttle to Piazza di Popolo that took avg. 15 minutes to get there (Call concierge at least 30 minutes prior to leaving).

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

From Piazza di Popolo the Spanish steps are about 12-15 minutes walking distance and the the Metro is easy to hop on. Buses are free in Rome, so if you are good at Navigating it's really helpful. The Metro is 1 Euro 50 cents for 100 minutes. It takes you basically directly to many popular sites such as the Circus Maximus, Collesum, the Roman Forums, ect. One last thing, From FCO airport they DO NOT have a free ride, which it states. They have a free ride from a different airport. They charge a $65 flat rate to the hotel and $65 back to the airport. It may seem expensive, but it's worth it. From my lack of experience in traveling I got into a black car that didn't say taxi and pay 75 euros once I got to the hotel from the scamming taxi driver. Just get the reliable ride from the Duke and reserve someone to pick you up. p.s. Italian drivers are crazy!! If it's your first time in Rome, don't drive, just walk and have public transportation.
