Fantastic. What we expect from a historical city. Very close to all you want to see in a three days trip. A modern style into an old and preserved building. I do recommend, mostly for young couples...

A Beautiful and comfortable place to stay in the centre of Rome. The decor is stylish and unique. By utilizing the space downstairs, breakfast should be considered as an option in the future. Totally recommend for leisure or business.

Absolutely lovely! I've been in relais orso a couple of days ago, it is a real stylish place. So cool!! The lounge area and the terrace... AMAZING Gorgeous view from the terrace and really 2 min walk from any attraction of the city center( it is located exactly in the old city center) The staff ladies at the reception are all nice and helpful, they are always available for anything! I definitely felt in love!♥️ Will come back again!!!

This hotel is a gem. Small, perfectly located and unique. There are not many rooms and only 2 common areas but they are cozy and chic. The terrace is a beautiful relaxing spot (it was open when we went there and really enjoyed it). The lobby seems recently renovated and has a cute and cozy corner to hang out. While they don't serve breakfast in the hotel, the management/staff did explain to us that they have been going through some changes and will be restoring the service soon. Will definitely be back.

I came here with my girlfriend for a long getaway weekend. The hotel was great, I really liked the design of the room - lots of character with exposed brick walls and a mod/min aesthetic. The location was perfect and that made a difference in our stay. I would recommend it to my friends.

We stayed at this hotel for few days in October 2017 and it was much better than we expected. The staff went above and beyond in helping us with reservations, tours and even helped us sorting out a dispute with the airline company. It is rare nowadays to find a hotel with such a caring and client-oriented environment. I definitely recommend Relais Orso.

Fantastic hotel in the center of Rome. We spent most of the time exploring the city but it was nice to chill on the rooftop at the end of the day. The rooftop seems recently renovated and looks very nice but it doesn't have a bar.

We arrived With a booking for two rooms. We were told they only had one room left and they had booked us one room at a cheaper hotel at a worse part of the city . Terrible service and very professional and I wonder how honest. We decided not to stay

I stayed here my last night in Rome and was very happy with my experience. I booked through Hotel Tonight and it was a very easy and efficient check in. The location is perfect being close to the river and walking distance so some of the best Piazzas in the city. I am American, so i felt the hotel was a bit tight but thats just how it is. The room looked brand new and was extremely clean. The bathroom was very big compared to other European hotels, awesome shower. The beds were two twins pushed together which again is common in Europe so it took some getting used to. In the morning i was able to check out very quickly and they even called a cab for me to get to the airport.

We booked our stay here back in feb based on it showing as four stars on multiple sites and the way it is represented online on their site. The elevator does not work!!!! It never does apparently. They just tell you it recently broke. It’s behind a giant curtain where they keep the luggage’s. The stairs are steep and narrow. Had to lug all the bags up to the “third floor” which is actually is the fifth floor. You go into the room and it’s tiny. Maybe 200-250sq ft max. The bath tup/shower it a foot from the bed. No closet only about a foot and a half around each side of the bed to walk. And the shower is completely open in the middle of the room with glass. Only one half mirrored panel. We had to hang towels over the glass to shower privately. It’s awkward. No counters in the bathroom. It’s terrible. Oh and there is zero water pressure!!! The water drizzled down. Horrible. Don’t get scammed like we did. We had booked three nights and left after the first. We booked an air bnd which is an amazing apt five min away for $60 less a night!!!!
