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.

Amazing Location & Views of Rome

Staying at this hotel during our Roman Holiday made our trip extra special. The staff arranged all our tours and gave great inside tips for where to eat and explore. The food was delicious. The location could not get any better, right at the top of the Spanish Steps in the center of the city of Rome. We can't wait to return.

Absolute Best Ever! ! !

Got food poisoning from local bar and ended up in hospital. During ER visit someone stayed with us to help with the language barrier. Manager [...] visited us everyday and helped with arrangements for extra few days stay. Everyone in the hotel were extremely helpful and professional. Unsurpassed service i have ever experienced. Excellent location as well right at the top of the Spanish Steps. Dont bother going to another hotel. This is the place to be in Rome...Thanks again to [...] and the staff of the De La Ville.

A Professional and Friendly Staff

The InterContinental De L Ville Roma made my first time experience in Rome a very memorable one. The hotel is conveniently located next to the Spanish Steps, which is located in the center of downtown Rome. This provided great access to restaurants, shopping areas and the metro station. All of Rome?s attractions are with in walking distance from the hotel. As for being a solo travel, I can say that I was made to feel very comfortable and safe at the InterContinental. The concierges? expertise helped with my transfers from Rome to Naples and back, providing a no hassle and safe travel experience for me. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler.

Great Location

The InterContinental Rome was a very nice hotel. The room was comfortable and clean and we especially liked the bathroom and the balcony. The location of the hotel was perfect it was within walking distance of every major attraction (Although you do have to climb the Spanish Steps a lot-- which could be a problem for some travelers). The only drawback of the hotel was that the food they served was not worth the price. Also the choices for food/bars right around the hotel were limited.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

To see the true character of Rome visit the Trastevere on the west bank. It is not really that far and it has the best night life and food. It is also resonably priced and items like water and soda are about half the price of what they are near the hotel.

Perfect location to explore Rome

The location at the top of the Spanish Steps is a great place to begin exploring in any direction. The street that it is located on Via Sistani is a great boutique area with a nice cappichino bar steps away. The best shopping street is a block away and the walk to Ancient Rome is a pleasant stroll seven blocks away. The conceierge staff was particularly helpful with dining reservations and touring suggestions. Our room overlooked a beautiful courtyard with fountains and the rooftop bar had a jaw-dropping view of Rome.
