Only in Rome for three nights bit wary when we saw the front of the hotel but ok inside and male receptionist very friendly and helpful. Breakfast usual Continental type fine as we were off sightseeing and stopping for coffee breaks etc . Only downside single beds probably 2ft 6in every time I turned over thought I might fall out! Solved by pushing beds together and my daughter sleeping on bed/settee in lounge room. Excellent hotel in walking distance of all favourite sightseeing spots, we walked to the Vatican in 20 minutes for example
the room is big, the bathroom clean. the staff is friendly and helpful with directions. it's in the centre of everything you have to see in Rome, where using public transport or take a taxi is a challenge (it usually takes too long to catch one) you have to add the night tax (7euros per room) to the price of the room
We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. The emailed check in instructions were confusing. It made it seem like you had to check in elsewhere. That is only true if you are arriving at a very unusual time. Otherwise just ring the bell and you will be buzzed in. This hotel I'd perfectly located. You can easily walk everywhere. The room was lean and as described. There isa light breakfast included
We stayed 2 days in Rome on our way to Tuscany. The palazzo was just as I remembered from our first visit there over 5 years ago. Very comfortable, clean and in a perfect location for visiting the wonderful sights of Rome. Most of the attractions are well within easy walking distance.
Located on a small alley, the hotel is identified by a small and discreet sign. The location is great with easy walking distance to many of the sites we wanted to see, including the Vatican. There is a taxi stand very nearby, too. The bed was comfortable, the room charming. I often find there is not enough room for personal items in hotel bathrooms and here there is a small bureau with pullout baskets to put everything in. At night there is some street noise, but not enough to be disturbing. The included breakfast is good. However, the staff is here for limited hours. The handle on the bathroom door was broken and it took three days to fix. The air conditioner didn't work at all well and then started dripping onto my suitcase and the floor. The lighting is too dim. The management seems friendly, but disorganized and not terribly caring about running the place. This could be a nice little inn, but I wouldn't stay here again.
Seems it has also happened to other travellers. They said that our room had some technical problems so they couldn't receive us. They still had more rooms available, but they didn't want to upgrade us. They offered a room in another hotel instead, but it was far in Vatican City. We lost all our afternoon (we were already traveling) trying to find something well located and nice for the same price. Obviously not easy at the last minute.
We arrived in Italy on Monday as part of a week long trip to different cities - starting with Milan. We received an email at 2pm re-confirming our booking, ensuring us all was fine and they looked forward to welcoming us on the Friday. Two hours later, we received another email saying the hotel had been over booked and our reservation had been cancelled, but payment had been taken. We were already in the country and now had no where to stay in Rome and were due to fly there in 3 days time, not only that but our money had been taken. An alternative apartment was offered but it was much further out from the area we had chosen, the standard of the apartment was no where near what we had booked and it seemed suspicious as there was only one review and one picture of it on TripAdvisor. As two young girls in our early 20's we had spent a long time carefully choosing a hotel with lots of positive reviews and that was in a safe location for us. We were devastated but also so worried as we thought we wouldn't be able to find another hotel in time, leaving us stranded. Luckily my mum who was home in the UK managed to ring hotels.com who we had made the booking through. After three hours on the phone they managed to find us an available room in the same area for the duration of our stay and they covered the additional charges as the hotel was more expensive. Thanks to my mum doing this and hotels.com being helpful and managing to do this, our holiday was saved. But it was horrible to go through, took up a lot of time and stress. We spent our first day and night in Milan panicking and unable to relax and enjoy ourselves because of this and were worried about what we were going to get hotel-wise when we got to Rome as of course, it was a gamble. Thankfully it all turned out ok due to this, but because of this - I would definitely NOT recommend Palazzo Olivia. We were incredibly disappointed and distressed by their poor organisation. I would however recommend the hotel that we stayed in in the end, Hotel Locanda Cairoli.
What a perfect place to stay while visiting Rome. The hotel is central so we could walk to all of the sights we wanted to see (vatican, forum and colosseum, trevi fountain, jewish ghetto, Piazza Garibaldi). And you are just 2 blocks from Piazza Navona (plaza with 3 fountains) so you always have good places to eat. The rooms were very comfortable and unique and the staff was courteous. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Rome.
This hotel is unassuming and is located on a small alley street. It looks like an entrance to someone's home. It has apartments inside. My apartment was clean and cute. Separate small kitchen/living area from the bedroom. I felt like a local. When you walk out, you are less than five minutes to Piazza Navona on one side of a main street, Vittorio Emanuele and Campo di Fiori on the other side of the street. It took 20 minutes to walk to the Vatican/St. Peters and about the same to colosseum in the opposite direction. The apartment has a cute little breakfast room with a nice selection for breakfast. This also becomes a restaurant at night. The price is very reasonable for what you get. This is now my favorite place to stay in Rome. Great location, helpful and friendly staff and affordable.
We spend great four days in Palazzo Olivia. A big apartment that was very clean, had comfy beds, was very spacious even with a walk-in wardrobe, came well-equipped kitchen and bathroom. The location is unbeatable close to Piazza Navona and Campo di Fiori - still a quiet street. If you consider booking do not go for the Economy Room as this does not have a window. Other apartments are great. Breakfast was good too.
