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.

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.

Great location, high quality property

We were in Rome for a few days following a cruise and wanted something very nice and convenient to area sites. This place was perfect! Just steps from the Spanish Steps and a 15-minute walk to the Trevi Fountain, it was a great neighborhood and almost everything was top-notch. The only 'complaint' was the cost (but in defense, Rome in general is absurdly expensive), and the price of drinks in the lobby (20 Euros or about $27 U.S. dollars for a mixed after-dinner drink!).

Great Stay!

Stayed here for four nights over Thanksgiving. The staff is super friendly, speaks excellent english and will take care of your every need. The location is fabulous and centrally located to shopping, food and sights. The food is overpriced and the restaurant is small but why would you just stay in your hotel and eat when you're in Rome?! Get out and experience the city with plenty of other places to eat and enjoy. I joined Intercontinental's priority rewards program before I left for the trip and I got a free room upgrade when I arrived!

Amazing!!!

Our overall trip to Rome was fantastic, but the stay at the Intercontinental de la Ville Roma was incredible! The room was amazing with an adorable private courtyard attached and the staff was unbelievably helpful. Ernesto at the concierge desk single handedly made our trip memorable. From dinner reservations, to tour guides to car services, he made sure every day we were there that we were set up right!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
