Hotel Pincio

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Really nice location 200 meters from Piazza di Spagna and lots of shopping opportunities. Breakfast is ok and the service is good. If you stay here, you are really just paying for the good location, ok breakfast and a clean room. Nothing more, nothing less.

We stayed for 4 1/2 days and we are very pleased with our experience at hotel Pincio. From the moment we check-in until we check out we had nothing but good experiences. Pros: FRIENDLY staff from the front desk to everyone we encountered nothing but pleasant faces and amazing hospitality. Our room VERY CLEAN!!!! the cleaning person did an excellent job. Great breakfast in the morning: croissant, cappuccino, hot chocolate milk, bruschetta are few of my favorites. Also great view while having breakfast in the morning. Location was perfect!!!! If you want to stay in a hotel around Spanish steps and Trevi fountain this is the place; its a 3 star hotel however the staff's are 5 star rated.

Mold in shower, bathroom door broken, bad smell in bedroom, very limited offerings on breakfast buffet. Top floor is nice with breakfast room that has beautiful view of Rome rooftops. However it is so small that not everyone can find seating and have to stand and wait in the already cramped area. Breakfast lady was not very nice and complained about most things. Lucky for me I had read in previous reviews that checkin is at another hotel opposite Pincio. And although reviews have criticized the complete lack of sign or any kind of info at the Pincio door, the management have not done anything regarding this. As there is no reception or staff at Pincio you will not meet anyone during your stay. Location is great but there are numerous other hotels in the area that has to be better, try any of those instead.

If you want a reasonably priced, small hotel in the centre of Rome (2 minute walk from Piazza di Spagna) with comfortable beds, clean rooms, modern bathrooms and a decent breakfast before you go out to do your sight seeing then Hotel Pincio is a good one to choose. The only negative was the first room they put me in had a foul smell of drains but after telling the staff at reception they sent the porter to try to resolve the issue by pouring some chemical down the shower plug hole and opening the window. I said I'm going out for a few hours and if it still smells when I return I want another room. I got back and the room still smelled bad and to be fair to them the reception staff arranged a different room for me straight away and everything else after that was good.

Stayed here in a party of 8 for the rugby, check is at the hotel over the road but you are not told of this in advance nor is there any signage on the door. We arrived early ad 2 of our 4 rooms were ready so were able to leave bags in the rooms while we went out exploring. We had room 102 on first floor by the lift but no noise from it at night, was clean with only a shower and a hair dryer that only worked for 1 minute at a time, took several attempts to dry hair in mornings. Air con wouldn't switch off so had to have window open, good job it was Feb and not too hot. Brekkie is served on roof top terrace and the spiral staircase up there was a bit taunting for someone who suffers dizzy spells, had to use the lift in the end. Usual continental style of fruits, yoghurts, breads etc. Was able to leave bags in hotel opposite on check out while we made the most of our time in Rome

Arrived at hotel by airport shuttle welcomed by the gentlemen at reception gave us our key card and he explained everything we needed to. Know room was clean towels exchanged everyday and even arrangements for us to go to the airport on Thursday was organised for us to go home had a lovely time and all the staffwe met were very welcoming Hope to go back one day

The stay was very average and there were many small annoyances that kept adding up: 1) they gave us one key. We requested another one which they gave but that deactivated the first key. We kept going to the reception 5 times and every time only one key would work. Eventually we gave up. 2) the phone in our room didn't work so we couldn't call the reception. 3) we had no hot water in our room. It took them a couple of hours to get someone to come to look at it. When he came he switched the taps and left. After that we realized that we no longer had cold water. So we gave up after that.

This hotel was our last stop on our close to 3 week long European trip. Our hotels had all been fairly nice. Then the Pincio came along. Our arrival started out bad, being that we stood outside the Pincio in the heat, waiting to be let in, only to find reception was across the street. (A simple sign would have been great) After getting situated we headed up to our room. It was small, but adequate, we'd stayed in smaller rooms on our trip. Sadly, we soon came to discover size was the least of our issues. The phone and hair dryer didn't work at all. The air conditioner was a joke. Our sheets were covered in stains. When we arrived our fridge was hot and took nearly a day to reach a temperature cooler than our room itself, not to mention it was moldy. The major problem was in the bathroom. Not only was the shower door broken so water spilled out onto the floor every time we turned it on, the bathroom REEKED of mold and was dirty. We walked over to the reception desk on the first night to tell them about our issues. They sent someone over with us to check the room out, he told us he'd come back the next day to fix everything, except for the moldy fridge which he wiped clean that night. Of course they never came back. If this is a four star hotel in Rome, I'd hate to see what a 3 or 2 star hotel looks like.

We booked two rooms and stayed mid June of 2017. Several positives about the hotel. Wonderful location if you want to be near the Spanish Steps and Northern portion of the city. One room was great and we enjoyed the roof-top continental breakfast. However, our second room had a distinct and revolting odor which seemed to be coming from the shower. We could also hear water dripping in the wall of the bathroom. Complained to management staff every day of our stay and their only response was to over-spray the room with air freshener. They were not willing to move us to another room and told us the problem was fixed, when in truth, it was not. I would not stay here again.

We stayed over last weekend leaving Tuesday morning. This is a small hotel with everything in it you could need. The beds are really comfortable. We traveled as 3 adults and the 3rd bed was a proper bed, not a pull out camp bed. The air conditioning in the rooms is excellent and it was always lovely to walk in from the hot streets and feel the lovely cool hotel straight away. The shower is great and our room was very quiet. Breakfast is on the top floor is continental and is very calm and efficient. Importantly for us, it was easily within walking distance of the hop on off off buses and also Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. We were very happy with our stay.
