What a great find! We booked this hotel as it looked like the location would be convenient to explore Rome, and we were not disappointed. It is situated just off the Piazza Rotunda, by the Pantheon, and is easy walking distance to all of Rome's historic attractions. Although it doesn't look like a regular hotel, it is in a lovely historic building, set over 3 floors. All the staff we met were really friendly and helpful. Our room was a good size and overlooked a small courtyard garden. It was exceptionally clean and well equipped. After booking we received an email from the hotel detailing airport transfers and tours - we decided to book the transfer, which was 50€ for 2 people, only 2€ more than a regular taxi, and we were met in the arrivals hall by the driver, which was so convenient and saved a lot of time trying to make our way out of the airport to find a taxi or other transport to the city centre.

I made a reservation 3 months ahead of my scheduled date. 5 days before my arrival hotel charged my credit card. 2 days before my arrival hotel cancelled my reservation stating that they could not charge my card because it was invalid. So, 2 days before my arrival I have my card charged and no room, as they said they are completely booked now. Stay away from this place, they are the worst kind of hotel establishement you can get, They got no respect for customers, typicall topurist trap.

This is a very quirky "hotel". The location is absolutely perfect. Two minutes away from the Pantheon and the restaurants on the square. The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. Rooms and areas are very clean. Francesca in the breakfast room is a sweetheart and keeps everything for breakfast beautifully stocked and the area clean. Plenty of food to choose from so you don't go away hungry.The gentlemen at Reception are very helpful and kind. However, we were at first put in the room under the breakfast room (Room 216, I believe) and were woken at 6 am by chairs being dragged across the breakfast room above us, feet pounding, etc. We asked to be moved and were duly given another room on the 3rd floor of the newer section. This room was a lot smaller but was immaculately clean as well. Newer furnishings and bathroom too. The beds were rock hard which made it difficult to sleep. We didn't want to move again so we stayed there. Be careful of the water in the showers. One minute boiling hot and the next super cold but hey, that's an old building for you. Not a big deal. Just be careful, particularly if you have children. Another note is that there is very minimal furniture, even in the bigger rooms. Bed(s), night stands and that's about it. No chairs to sit on, no table or desk to put things on, etc. Also, although there is air conditioning in each room it is not turned on until June so...... However, if you like quirky and want the perfect location for a visit to Rome then you will be fine.

Located behind the Pantheon and Piazza Rotunda, the small hotel is housed in a very old building. Layout is unusual and rooms are just OK. Lots of steps with a 4x4 elevator for luggage and those who are not in shape. Outside entry looks like the rear entrance as check-in is up two flights. King size bed in the room just below the breakfast area filled the room with slanted ceilings and a large "dresser." Heavy old drapes covered the glass doors that opened onto a small balcony with a view of the courtyard below. It rained so we were unable to use it. The mattress was thin and not very comfy. The bathroom was updated with a newer shower and toilet (w/bidet) and had a small skylight and was clean. Breakfast on the top floor included sliced meats and cheese, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee and tea w/ croissants, dry cereal and several breads. It was adequate. The staff was friendly and helpful but English wasn't the best. Friends with us have visited Rome many times and said they probably wouldn't return to this hotel. The location is definitely the draw, however there are several in the area (six with Pantheon in the name) that are likely more expensive.

We booked a tripple room but get double with additional bed. You should agree - it's not the same. Additional bed always is smaller and less comfortable. There hasn't a tee making facilities in the room. Bathroom smells like a basement and I have not idea - why. Room itself was dark, window was very small. Heating did not work, in any case - we did not know how to turn it on - panel was old and signs on it unvisible. Breakfast room is quite small, be ready to wait for a free table. And finaly - be ready for restless nights. You will hear everything - TV on your neighbors' room, crying baby (who cry all night around) etc. But anyway - all minuses was compensated by the perfect location. Perfect location, friendly staff, for Italy - good breakfast. Roof terrace was perfect place where to sit after a long day and take a glass of vine.

This location was perfect. It was behind the Pantheon and an easy walk to every major museum and monument in Rome. There was a nice terrace to relax in the afternoon with a bottle of wine. That's the best thing I have to say about it. In every other aspect, it was lacking. The hotel is charmingly nestled into an old building. Such buildings always come with certain issues, which are to be expected - imperfect plumbing, electric, and amenities. However, this hotel didn't really seem to address these issues with much diligence. The halls were loud. The marble and tile floors and plaster made the sound of tourists returning late and talking seem very loud. The bath grout wasn't as clean as you would hope. The beds were uncomfortably thin and springy. The bedding was inadequate for the temperature (one thin bedspread, one thin extra blanket in the closet). The breakfast was terrible. We opted to go elsewhere and eat every day. When we asked for a recommendation for food on our first night, we were sent to a horrifyingly bad trattoria with whom the hotel had a referral arrangement of sorts. It's not a good hotel. But I might stay here again, given its location. I would recommend it to a traveler who does not care about amenities or comforts, but places a high value on accessibility to sightseeing. The price was fair, but not great, considering the availability of cheaper rooms throughout the city.

Spent four nights here with my husband and another couple, we all enjoyed it and thought it great value for money. It has a marvellous central location with the Pantheon and amazing restaurants literally yards away. Also next door is a wonderful church-nothing from the outside but really worth a look-we nearly didn't bother! The hotel,as mentioned in other reviews has a very peculiar layout,which for us added to its quirky,historical feel, however it is not for anyone unfit or who likes everything pristine! On the plus side the staff were super, the rooms immaculate, bathrooms swish and modern and hot water abundant. The roof garden was an unexpected jewel and the breakfast ,though not cooked, was varied,tasty and as much as you can eat! On a more negative note there was no where in our room to put a case and no dressing table or indeed no surface on any description! And our friends room though more spacious and better appointed than ours opened straight off reception which was very noisy all night so I would suggest specifying you don't want that room at any price-unless you are a very heavy sleeper!

We stayed at Pantheon for 4 nights 14th-18th February. The hotel is in an ideal location- around the corner from The Pantheon and opposite a beautiful church. Infact you could see the Pantheon roof from our 4th floor window. The triple room we stayed in was very quirky with a average bedroom and a corridor leading down to a huge dressing room (which could have been a second bedroom) and a tiny but attractive bathroom with an awesome shower. The hotel building is shared with Guiseppe Garabaldi's relatives so reception and breakfast room are on different floors. Beds are comfortable but only have one pillow- reception provided additional ones after asking twice. Breakfast was a large selection of pastries, bread, meats, cereals and cheeses. The coffee machine was excellent according to my husband. The hotel is an historic building and very traditional in style. The roof terrace was beautiful and worth taking a drink up there to enjoy. The hotel arranged private transfers to Ciampino airport for 50euros each way and although expensive worth it after we encountered a taxi strike during our stay. When on the plane some people were booking 8 euro coach transfers from airport to Rome Termini, however Termini is 40 mins walk from central Rome. Other taxis are 30 euros each way but you have to make way to taxi rank and hope they are not striking!! We would definately stay at the Pantheon Inn again for its location comfort and quirkiness. Thanks Jo

Just spent 5 nights at this fabulous hotel with my husband and two children under 12. It was wonderful! Behind the green door the hotel is on a traditional Rome stone staircase with a courtyard at the bottom. Local residents also have apartments on the stair (hence the bins but very tidy). Our room was on the 4th floor with a lot of steps but there is a small lift which we just used for our bags. I'd booked a quadruple room and we were delighted to be given a suite with a double ensuite room for the adults and our children sharing a large room with two double sofa beds. All the mattresses were comfortable, the room was clean and well serviced, and there was even a small balcony overlooking the courtyard. The bathroom had an excellent shower and a separate room with double basins which was practical for 4 sharing. The staff were all very friendly, polite and helpful especially the hard working lady who prepared the ample breakfast every morning. The location was perfect, a short stroll to eat out in the evenings at a wide choice of restaurants and easy to walk to all the sites. This is an exceptional hotel and if you want to feel like you are in Rome rather than in a chain hotel that could be anywhere then it is just for you. Thanks to all at the Pantheon Inn.

The Pantheon Inn is a 300 year old building with an interesting history, so by staying there you live in history, which is what we wanted. It's layout is most probably different to other hotels since there are also sections that private residents live in, or so I understand. It is not a flash, modern hotel, but it is clean and the room that we had was large and airy. Admittedly we were in the room next to reception and the main entry door, however we slept well without disturbance as the staff who are in attendance 24/7 made sure people did not make loud conversation when coming in late. The staff were excellent, helping with directions and any requests. They can not be faulted. Breakfast was included and there was plenty to choose from. Best of all is the great location, 1 minute from the Pantheon, most probably less than 15 minutes from the Spanish steps and also close to the Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona. Basically, everything we wanted to see was within walking distance from the hotel. We would have liked tea and coffee making facilities in our room, they do have a coffee machine in the reception area where you can buy coffee, but I wasn't able to get a cup of tea. The hot water for the shower took a long time to come through and the bathroom was small, but everything was spotlessly clean. Overall our stay was very pleasant.
