Palazzo Montemartini5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I booked the grand deluxe and they upgraded me to a suite that had 1.5 bathrooms but I couldn't find the suite type online. It was comfortable and large for the area with lots of storage space. The bathroom was nice and the shower had a built in seat colored light and steam control which was awesome. The breakfast spread was great with lots and lots of options. The best parts I would say are the spa which offers amazing massages and the rooftop bar which was just gorgeous.
Great location close to Termini but very quite! Enjoyed every minute of our week staying in the Palazzo. The employees are friendly, fabulous, welcoming and convenient. They made our trip easy and enjoyable.
We decided to stay here due to the convenience to Roma Termini as we were coming from Florence and had a flight out of Rome the next day. The hotel amenities are wonderful. The spa, which with our rate, was included in our stay, was the perfect addition to a long day of walking. Between the saunas and pool, it was perfect! The rooms are spacious which is rare for Rome, and clean. They are modern and livable (nothing more or less than you need). The shower is large. The breakfast was absolutely amazing. We would definitely stay here again for the sole fact that it is a short 20 min walk to the historical sites, yet in a quiet area, and for the pool/spa and breakfast!
We traveled here with our 2 children, ages 9 and 11. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the train station, about a mile from the Colosseum. The lobby is spectacular; the rooms are rather modern, and spare, but very comfortable. We had two adjoining rooms for our family. Bathrooms were spacious; air conditioning worked like heaven. The breakfast is quite extensive. They were making pancakes and crepes, and there was a full selection of hot and cold foods. We had a drink on the rooftop bar, which is pricey, but offered a lovely view of the city at night. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel was a wonderful oasis to come back to for an afternoon break from touring in the heat. Despite its proximity to the train station, which can house people milling about all times of day and night, we always felt safe, and in fact the front gates to the hotel are locked overnight. The hotel does have a fitness center, spa and indoor pool which you can access for approx 20 Euros/day, but we did not use it. Overall a great stay; we recommend.
The hotel is modern and attractive and our deluxe room was quite spacious with a comfortable King size bed, huge bathroom with a separate bathtub, walk-in shower, and large sink countertop with double sinks. The shower was state of the art with multiple shower heads, rain shower and a hand held shower as well as color changing mood lighting and heated floors. Palazzo Montemartini is right across the street from the Termini train station in Rome so it is easy to use the train and subway system from the hotel. Our room included use of the spa which we used the last day of our stay and wished we had used more often. It had a waterfall wall behind the pool and spa tub with massaging jets. It also had a special salt room and specialized showers available for guests. It was a truly relaxing experience. The breakfast was amazing with a huge amount of choices including freshly prepared crepes, breads, pastries, eggs and breakfast meats, cold cuts, cheeses, yogurt, fruit, juices, cappuccinos, tea and coffee. We had an early flight so the front desk staff offered to have abreakfast box prepared on the last morning of our stay since we were supposed to have breakfast included in our package. This was the only disappointment of our stay, it included 3 large pieces of fruit with only a plastic knife to cut it, a cold grilled cheese sandwich, a bottle of orange carrot juice and a yogurt. We only ate the yogurt and got something else at the airport. With the lovely array of items on the breakfast buffet it would have been preferable to have a few pastries instead of the cheese sandwich, and some precut fruit or other easy to eat items in a to go box.
very nice hotel, clean and modern... very friendly staff... will stay there again, when we come back... the spa is very relaxing after a long sights walk on a hot day... the rooftop bar is small but nice... the view from the rooftop is "ok" because the buildings around are a bit higher... but that's not really the hotels fault.. the neighborhood is a typical train station area (like most cities in europe): bit rough but very authentic.. personally i prefer it that way.. an upscale/comfortable feeling inside the hotel and a real and authentic feeling outside... the only thing was: we had a steam chamber in our room but i think the ventilation isn't really made for that.. it smelled a bit funny the hour after using the steam chamber... but this couldn't disturb a wonderful stay at this hotel.. i can highly recommend it...
We just wrapped up a 3 night stay at Palazzo Montemartini, which we chose based solely on its proximity to Roma Termini station which is literally across the street. We had just spent a week and a half in Capri/Positano/Sorrento and were taking the Frecciarossa train up from Napoli so just wanted a quick nice hotel nearby. Palazzo Montemartini is certainly that. We initially had a "Grand De Luxe" and getting here from Termini was a snap, even in the amazing Rome heat. The building is beautiful and we were greeted by the helpful and friendly staff. We got up to our room, which was spacious, very high ceilings, not much of a view, but we didnt book this hotel for a view. Unfortunately, almost immediately, things started going very wrong. The hotel is a bit over styled and the bathroom doors were sliding glass, one of which came off the hinges almost immediately and almost crashed down on us. These are very heavy doors. So we called the front desk, they sent someone up, a very friendly guy who said we'd probably need to change rooms. In defens eof the hotel., they promtply changed our room to a purportedly better room, this one with a balcony, overlooking the side street. Unfortunately, in this room, the Air conditioning had not been turned on and the key cards they use are not exactly the highest technology (i.e. even when in the wall, it started going off) so at this point I was getting really frustrated, Eventually, it sort of worked out although the A/C in the room we were given took some time to get going. I will say, however, that the hotel staff were professional and assisted us with a new room without complaints, so this is not a low end hotel, it;s a very nice hotel with great staff. Also, the breakfast service was exceptional and included the best ricotta of our 2 weeks in Italy. Also exceptional coffee. And the bedding was very good as was the bath, which had a double sink. Although we had Spa access, we did not go there because children were not allowed. As far as location, if you are using Rome Termini, this hotel is excellent. For Rome sights, we paid no more than 20 Euros (from St. Peter's) and usually about 8-14 to get to the main sights. One day we also walked and got lost, which took about 20 minutes. We didn't mind the taxi fares as on one, the guy gave us an awesome tour of Rome, pointing out things we never would have known. All in, a very good hotel, but I will say that the hallways are painted black in the bulk of the hotel for some reason, which is very strange, gives it a dark feel. On the other side of the hotel, with the nicer suites, it's a classic Italian feel., A very good hotel, is it 5 stars, no, more like 3 1/2 to 4, but excellent service and price, in my view.
This is NOT a 5 star luxury hotel ..... More like a 3 star hotel . The bathroom had mould in it , the walls were cracked & damaged , the tiles were chipped & broken ( see photos ) . We were disgusted so we told one of their staff Frederico , but he wasn't very willing to help us and did nothing to please us . We had 6 nights here ! They do not provide complimentary bottled water ( most 5 star hotels do ) and if you want a poached egg or omelet with your buffet breakfast then that's extra !! The rooms are old and worn & our air conditioner was barely keeping up with the hot days. If you want near the train station then its good , but if you want the heart of Rome then its not close . Its about a 15-20 min walk to the centre of Rome ( like the Trevi Fountain ). Stay somewhere else !!
Absolutely fantastic holiday. Great hotel and excellent staff. Our favourite was the early evening visits to the rooftop terrace. Cocktails (which were amazing) friendly welcoming staff and just a great end to great days. Thank you. We will be back.
My friend and I stayed here due to a write up of the spa in a Wallpaper guide - well worth it! Together we have visited Rome over 10 times and the service here was phenomenal. The spa has projected images of ancient Rome through a wall of water and the rooms are spacious and generous. Many thanks for a memorable experience!
