Hotel Stendhal

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had 2 rooms for three nights in the suites building, rooms 410/411. Both rooms were newly renovated, great bathrooms and comfortable beds. My only complaint is that the small elevator was not always in service due to repairs. Our room was a corner room with a few windows in the bedroom, making it a little noisy during the morning rush down on the street. The highlight of our stay was before and after dinner, when we stopped by the small lobby bar and had some cocktails. We were served by Valerio, one of the nicest, most considerate people we met during our vacation. He was great to talk with, knew much about Rome and even stayed late, keeping the lounge open an extra hour or so. I will stop by and say hello to Valerio on my next trip to Rome, even if I am not staying at the Stendhal.

I booked this on Tablet and began to have concerns because it was so inexpensive. It was a perfect spot for our one night in Rome before flying home. The hotel has two locations around the corner from each other. We stayed in an apartment like place in a suite with two rooms. Very clean, super comfortable, great size, nice towels, great bathroom and hair dryer. The front desk staff were all so friendly and helpful. This is about 4 blocks from the spanish steps and super close to all the cool not to miss stuff. Strongly recommend staying here.

I travelled with my husband and 4 year old, and we were upgraded to a suite in the annex which was spacious and ultramodern. The Bathroom was huge with a full wall walk-in shower. The room looked onto the piazza barberini. Beautiful view but noisy with windows open. The temperature control works really well for those traveling in the summer time. It is within walking distance of the Trevi Fountain, pantheon, Piazza Navona, Spanish steps. We also walked to the coliseum and Vatican but these were a little bit farther away. Only possible criticism is The breakfast was adequate but nothing special. I would definitely stay here again.

The Stendhal exceeded our expectations. We received everything stated on the hotel information page and more. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. The staff made the stay outstanding from check-in to check-out. The location was excellent to many of the sites and attractions. Great restaurants in the area. I will be staying again and telling all family and friends this is the best choice when traveling to Rome.

Nice hotel in good, central location, between the Trevi fountain and Spanish steps. We were in Rome for 3 days and a central location was essential in order to cram everything in. Staff were helpful when we checked in, showing us which Metro stop to get off at for each attraction. (The Metro station is practically next door) Decor is nice. Small but clean, functional room and bathroom. Nice big, comfortable bed. Buffet breakfast, which was good standard but not enough choice of food if you are staying for anything longer than a few days. Overall happy with our stay and would consider visiting again.

After an uneasy conversation with our taxi transfer company it transpired that our original hotel had transferred us (due to room maintenance) to the "far superior" (our driver's words) 4 star Hotel Stendahl just around the corner. We had made our original choice based on its central location, and this definitely applies to the Stendahl. Most of the main tourist attractions are within a 15-25 minute walk and there is a useful Metro station a few yards away. The welcome at the Stendahl was warm, and the gentlemen on reception were very helpful and informative. Indeed one recommendation for dinner turned out to be a fantastic choice, so good we ate there every evening. The staff in the breakfast room are equally charming and helpful. Reading the official blurb you’d think that this 4 star hotel had been underrated, with its free WiFi, air conditioned rooms and (I read somewhere) soundproofing. What lets the hotel down is its lack of care and attention. The room (102) we were in was very small and quite stuffy at night. The air con doesn't seem to work and, whilst the windows are fully functioning, you cannot get any air into the room. This is because the room is on a main road and the noise and toxic pollution from the traffic is too much to cope with for more than a few minutes. The bed is adequate. But the noise and stuffy room was not conducive to a good night's sleep. The bathroom is awful. You can hear the water running and the toilet flushing in the adjacent room. There is a pungent, stake smell constantly, reminiscent of a blocked drain or unflushed toilet. The facilities themselves are outdated and in need of repair: the sink plug does not function properly and the state of disrepair is noticeable (as I tried to put the sink plug in the basin moved from its housing). The same bit of fluff was in the bidet the entire time we were at the hotel, is this a reflection of how poor the housekeeping is? But it's fine... there IS housekeeping. There was a definite whiff of furniture polish when we returned to our room on our final day, almost like it had been used as an air freshener. At 8:45PM on our last night someone was hoovering the room next to ours!!! I would not stay here again nor recommend it to anyone, its central location is its only saving grace.

Nice hotel in great location. Close to Trevi and Spanish steps. Very pleasant staff and wonderful breakfast. Booked a single room which was very small but nicely decorated. My only minor complaint was that the shower stall was very very small. Definitely recommend.

Although we booked this hotel with little prior knowledge, it worked well but slightly surprising. It is a fairly small hotel, no swimming pool or huge lounges. Instead it has a nice personal touch with attentive staff and an exclusive ambiance. When we checked in, we were informed a party of other guests had just turned up with additional people, more than had actually booked. The Stendhal staff arranged for us to stay at a nearby alternative hotel which was absolutely fine, it all adds to the experience. When we returned to Stendhal the following day, we were delighted when we were upgraded to a superior room. As other reviewers have said, the location is central and you can easily walk to other attractions in the city; the Vatican, Colosseum, Spanish Steps etc. and it is a pleasure to walk through the streets. We felt quite safe wandering around. In common with many other cities, there's no shortage of young men trying to sell you things in tourist areas. On rainy days everyone is trying to sell you an umbrella, on sunny days there are plenty of sunglasses on sale with plenty of "skip the line" offers. The hotel appears to be newly refurbished. The decor is tasteful and to a high standard, both in the public areas and bedrooms. Temperature control was perfect. Our room had a lovely bathroom with the most perfect shower. The bedroom itself was very stylish and included a TV, complementary mini bar, hairdryer and safe. All of the staff who we encountered were well spoken and very polite, with good levels of English (just as well as I can't speak Italian!). Each was keen to please us as guests. Everything we asked for was catered for - extra milk in the mini bar, a very generous breakfast and ordering a shuttle bus to the airport.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this hotel this week and we had a nice stay overall. Location: Excellent! It is walking distance to a lot of the major sites, good restaurants, cafes, stores, etc. Room: Great - The room was small but we knew that beforehand as well as the fact that majority of hotel rooms in Rome are small so we weren't too bothered with it. It was clean and nice. They lose about half a point for the bed as it was concave. There is a big dip in the middle. We were still able to sleep and since we doubted it was the only bed like that in the building we didn't complain, but I recommend they make a change and get new bed(s) so guests are very comfortable. Breakfast: Good - We paid for the breakfast to be included in our stay. It was a continental breakfast and about what you would expect, so we were pleased with it and the hours that they were available. Staff: Here is where it is mixed feelings. Overall the daytime staff was polite, nice and helpful. If you had a question or needed help with something, they would oblige. But don't expect any warm and fuzzies, or smiles. We weren't too bothered by that though, as I said everyone was polite. The nighttime staff (or should I say person, because it was just one individual) was a different story. It was the same guy all 3 nights. The best way to sum up his vibe and attitude is "I don't want to be here, I am miserable, and I don't give a damn about anyone." When we asked him a question he barely made eye contact and couldn't be bothered. He is basically phoning-it-in. I suggest they find him a job that does not involve customer service as he clearly is not a people person. It is a shame having him interface with hotel customers when he creates such a negative vibe. Hopefully they find him a better role with the hotel and he can find some happiness in his life.

Very nice boutique hotel with friendly attentive staff. Accomodation is very clean and stylish, our room was perfectly quiet, breakfast is very good. Close to numerous attractions which are within walking distance. Metro and bus services are very close by, it is the second time we have stayed here.
