My wife and I stayed here as part of a tour group from end of November to early December (3 nights). The rooms were very spacious and very comfortable. Hotel staff were very friendly. Breakfast selection was very good as well. Only comments for management are related to the furniture in the rooms (some parts looked a bit worn out and over used). Also, the rooms did not have a coffee maker or hot water kettle which is standard in most hotels. Otherwise, loved the experience here and would definitely recommend it. Biggest plus - the location - they are centrally positioned and across from the Roma Termini station.

Our children booked this hotel as a anniversary present for us and in total honesty we found the staff to be very helpful and were always on hand to assist us. Been near the Termini put this hotel in a very good location and enabled us to use local buses as a means of returning back to the hotel after excursions,thereby saving us a packet. Breakfast could not be faulted as there was a varied menu to suit all tastes, would we use it again! the answer has to be yes.

My wife and I have just returned from 3 nights at the Palazzo Montemartini and were delighted with the service, location and the room allocated. The condition of the hotel is outstanding and the level of service from the staff members we encountered was some of the best of the many years of our travels. We had a deluxe double room on the 4th floor which was large and spacious. The oddities with this room however were the large bath within the bedroom and the only light coming from a high window above the bed and a skylight above the bath. This did not distract us though as laying in bed either at night or in the morning and watching the sky was a very pleasant experience. Being opposite the Termini station the hotel is ideally placed for transport links to/from the airport or other destinations throughout Italy. With the centre of Rome being relatively small compared to some other cities around the world, the hotel enables explorers to walk from the hotel to any of the major historical sites within the city centre. We took advantage of this fact on both of the full days we were there.

Having read so many great reviews we booked for three nights. The first thing we'd say is that the hotel is well presented and all of the staff were excellent. We had booked a superior room and when shown it were very disappointed to be presented with a room with a small porthole sized window and two small skylight windows with blinds that permanently drawn. There were no seats, just two odd shaped bean bags which is not something that you look forward to coming back to after a day of walking around Rome. The room was probably the most uncomfortable one we've ever had and included a mattress on a wooden box. The hotel might be 5 star, the room furnishings though are certainly not. At breakfast I asked for an omelette and was told that it would be €15.00 as only scrambled eggs were included in the breakfast price. We've never, ever had to pay extra when using a hotel "egg station" and are still smarting now, several days later! Our summary of our stay would be everything was hellish expensive and minimalism appears to be the key to getting 5 stars. Don't accept a room on the top floor and make sure you read the mini bar menu before you consume anything at all - as once you have read it you'll do what we did and pop round the corner for beers, wine, snacks etc. Oh, I should say that the bathroom was a health and safety train wreck waiting to happen with slippery stone floors and sharp edges, plus a basin that you couldn't fill and a bath that remained stone cold even when full of hot water. As you can guess, when we return to Rome it will be to the Soffitel down the road.

This hotel is very good. It is designed modernly and the interior décor is very refined. It is located near by Termini station, so transportation is very convinient and there are lots of bus stops nearby. The breakfast is so good and staff is very kind and nice. Also, the smartphone is provided for free during my stay, so I can use the useful apps like google map by using the smartphone.

Superb location for a traveller coming to the Rome central train station, Termini – just across the street. The palace used to be a governmental/municipal building before having been recently converted into a very, very modern luxury hotel - expect no antiquities, nothing from any older periods. All key tourist attractions within half an hour's walk. Reception was fine, but the room offered was below the size booked and prepaid via booking.com. We were then offered another one of identical size, which nearly spoilt the birthday adventure my wife prepared for me, but fortunately the hotel manager was on site and understood the issue within a second. We were then given a truly lovely room well above the size booked and a free drink so that we could really start enjoying our being there. The room was truly extremely modern, simplistic and ingenious with the largest »minibar« I have ever seen – a proper 7-feet tall cupboard in shape of a huge white suitcase, offering beside the usual fridge a Nespresso machine and a separate wine vault (empty). A built in wardrobe appeared to be of a similar size, but turned out to be endlessly deep. Large flower-power era photos on the walls. Great bathroom, alas without a tub, but with yet another state-of-the-art item –a great shower / relaxation cabin. All the right small toiletries, but still – being allergic to liquid soaps, I missed a proper one. Cleaning unnoticeable (i.e. faultless). Accoustic insulation of the room could be better, especially concerning the internal walls. We tried twice the lovely restaurant, again extremely modern and open throughout the day. Unfortunately, we couldn't make it for the luxury dinner due to other plans, but also the short and essential daily menu is nice and properly prepared. Service kind and helpful, winelist short and with very high markups. As the first time guest you are given a voucher with 20% discount – best use it for a serious dinner there. The breakfast / conference hall is perhaps too extreme in its cold down-to-basic approach, reminded me of a college canteen. Staff again helpful as in all other places, choice of food good if not overwhelmingly wide – the hotel is not a huge one, so this is understandable. Be careful not to miss the hour – the door closes at 10.30 sharp and five minutes later you are kindly reminded that you are supposed to leave within the next five. Unfortunately, the spa area was in some maintenance process the first two days of our stay, then we were out of time. I am also not a fan of small pools. Reportedly, however, the spa is worth seeing and enjoying. One thing I could not understand within this ultramodern project in an historical building were the lifts. Four of them closely packed, but each working independently. Funny. During our visit most of guests were couples and families, yet I would strongly recommend it also to fellow business travellers. A five star hotel in central Rome can not come really cheap at any time of the year, but thereagain, that's what you expect.

we stayed a couple of days in this hotel. Location is freat with a lot of things to do and see at walking distance. Also the train station is close by (no sound of it...) and here you can also easily get taxis. Bars and restaurant als enough around the hotel. The hotel is very classic on the outside, but the rooms are very modern and spacious. Good bathroom with seperate bath and shower. The indoor pool is also great to relax, but keep in mind that they charge you extra for the sauna and so on. The bereakfast is Ok although not a lot of choice. All in all a good city hotel to stay and I can recommend it.

I enjoyed the convenience of this place being so centrally located - close to the Train Terminal as well as the buses and great line up of restaurants. The only problem I had was with their air-conditioning. Despite my request to have someone check out the settings(the thermostat was in Italian) instead of sending someone to set it right the desk clerk kept telling me - oh we had a power outage so it may not be working until the power is restored...come on I can see everything else working and my friend's a/c was working in the next room.

great location near railway station,very clean upscale large good rooms with clean big bathroom airconditioned and very helpful staff.conveneant walking distance to everything neccessary.a bit expensive but worth it.

We were only there for one night but it provided everything you could want. Reception was great and while the room was not ready when we first arrived (prior to the posted check in time) the had is go for a complimentary drink and by the time we were done the room was ready. The room was clean and the bed was perfect. The next morning we were leaving before the restaurant opened but they prepared a breakfast for us and had coffee waiting. A great location in the heart of Rome certainly helped as well. All in all a five star experience.
