Hotel Splendide Royal5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Great staff friendly and welcoming. Very good room but no view at all. Walkable to a number of tourist attractions and restaurants. In house restaurant is pretty good.
We got a spacious room with a nice view overlooking Villa Borghese. Everything from amenities to service is just great, on par with the 5 star rating. The hotel is a few blocks walk to Spanish Steps and other more crowded areas, in a quiet neighborhood, just the way we liked it. Note the hotel's 8th floor roof top won't open until next year (2014), but the view from the 7th floor restaurant balcony is to die for. We just had a few drinks there so no info on the food quality. Breakfast buffet, on the other hand, is superb. Only catch I can think of: no in-room Wi-Fi.
The Splendide chain of luxury lodging remains a top choice among Italian hotel chains; Splendide Royal certainly lives up to this reputation. Its location a few steps from the top of the vaulted Via Veneto neighborhood and in the shadow of the arbory of Villa Borghese is ideal for parties interested in this section of Rome. On one hand, Via Veneto is more sedate than the throngs of tourists making their stays in the vicinity of the Spannish Steps, while on the other hand, Via Veneto offers superior late-night dining and entertainment than many sections of Rome. The Splendide Royal is a good base to explore this section of Rome; ambitious walkers could easily use this location as a base to explore the major historical sights of Rome - those looking to save a few steps (and perhaps a few dollars of their lodging budget) would likely find greater comfort in another section of Rome.
