Located at the top of the Spanish Steps, the InterContinental De La Ville Roma is housed within a landmark 17th century building, framed by imposing pillars and huge, balconied windows. A sustainable hotel and part of the Green Engage program, the hotel offers stunning with views stretching all the way to the Vatican. Spin through the revolving doors and you'll be welcomed by impeccably-dressed staff, marble and glossy-wood decor, and a full set of business services - including a private limo, should you need it. Take a seat in the garden courtyard of La Piazzetta restaurant (open in the spring) and taste flavors from every corner of Italy, or make time for a romantic dinner at the Emperor?s Terrace.

Hints and tips
When it's time for a cocktail, try an ice and olive martini, the signature drink at I Due Murano.

History buffs: Queen Maria Casimira of Poland lived here in the 1700s, when she was procuress of a monastery that probably stood on the hotel's former grounds.

Perfect for sightseeing

This hotel is located in an older part of Rome that is within walking distance of the Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain. We arrived early in the morning and our room was ready for us within just a few minutes. Check-in and check-out was quick. The room was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. All of the staff was able to communicate in English. Since our Italian was limited to a few phrases, we were very thankful for this. Also, the concierge made several phone calls for us to verify tours and pickup times of activities. The food is expensive (as in all hotels), but in Rome, it's expensive everywhere. So you really won't save much by eating outside of the hotel. They are also willing to prepare food that was not on the menu. One night we had grilled steak, baked potato, and veggies (a welcome change after so much pasta). It's a beautiful Hotel in a great location.

Short stay in Rome

Used as a central location for walking and visiting museums. Perfect location at the top of the spanish steos but still on a quiet street, We walked almost everywhere in Rome from there.

Expensive, but worth every Euro!

We wanted the Center of Rome. This was it. This place is expensive but with what you pay for the location you make up by not taking taxi's. You can really walk to everything.

Great hotel

Great hotel, friendly staff, great location but room too warm with window closed and too noisy when open. No ventilation since too late for a/c and too early for heat. Very good location, close to all major sights and subway. Would stay here again but would request room off street.

Rome Honeymoon trip

It was great the staff was very helpful. The first room wasn't too big, nor the bathtub, but once we chaged into the suite then it was great. The view was totally outstanding.

Intercontinental De La Ville ROMA Fantas

Excellent location. Check-in and check-out went without a hitch. Concierge service was fantastico. Our rooms had a small balcony, with floor-length windows that opened. Location was exceptional, although if you cannot climb a lot of steps, the location at the top of the Spanish Steps might be a problem. However, that was offset by the proximity to several great restaurants and great shopping. We were able to walk just about everywhere within the historic district comfortably. The hotel, the vacation, and the outstanding Orbitz service were everything we expected.

Don't be afraid of the language barrier just about anywhere within the historic district of Rome. We had no problem reading menus or signs, and almost all of the locals we interacted with knew at least some English, and were very friendly and helpful.
