Sina Bernini Bristol5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is located within walking distance to many local sites of interest... like the Trevi Fountains, the Spanish Steps, etc. There are numerous restaurants close by the hotel that excel in quality of food and service. The room was large with a spacious bathroom that included all of the amenities, especially fast Wi-Fi. The staff were very friendly and eager to serve one's needs.
The rooms and views were amazing; the view of St. Peter's Basilica was spectacular. The bathroom was bigger than most hotel rooms in Europe; mine had a tub and shower so I took a bubble bath one night to recover from my 30,000+ steps taken each day playing tourist. The only complaint I had was the penthouse restaurant/bar. The first night, I tried to have drinks out on the rooftop, and was told they only had food service out there. The second night, I planned on having dinner on the balcony, but they said they had no service. The weather was good, so it should have been open.
We stayed at the Bernini Bristol as part of a cruise package. We are quite experienced Rome travelers, but had never stayed here before...and will not do so again. The entire place has a tired feeling about it. The rooms need refreshing, and need updating to reflect the needs of modern travelers (better lighting, better electronic outlets, etc), and the place seems to have become a place for busloads of tourists (of which, on this occasion, we were part of.) On the good side, the breakfast buffet was well done, and on the downside, the bar service (in the lobby and on the roof) was slow, desultory and uninterested in the customer. There are SO many better hotels in Rome....why sta here unless, as we were, it was part of your cruise and you needed to be there for the transfer to Civitavecchia?
Lovely hotel in a good location within walking distance to most sites. We were upgraded to a great room with an outdoor patio. There was an MIA convention that took over most of the hotel and their signs and banners were annoyingly everywhere. They even rented the entire upstairs restaurant one evening as we were told we were not welcome to even take pictures of the sunset. Breakfast buffet was unspectacular and understaffed. Concierge recommended a local restaurant that was just ok and had a $12 cover and overpriced dishes.
Located at the top to Via del Tritone, the rooftop dining room has a commanding view of the city and the dome of St. Peter's to the southwest. The rooms are generous in size and the staff generous in spirit. To start the day the Bristol Barberini sets an elegant, generous buffet breakfast that we very much enjoyed. For art lovers, the Palazzo Barberini is only a few steps away, food lovers can explore the many restaurants along the via side streets and shoppers can stroll to the neighborhood round the Spanish Steps for the finest shops. All-in-all an excellent experience, highly recommended.
This hotel is VERY expensive and definitely NOT worth the cost. The rooms are QUITE small and the bed felt like it was a stuffed straw mattress that was SO flat and low. Definitely NOT what we expected. The location is great and easy to walk to places from the hotel. The complimentary breakfasts were good (not great). We had dinner in the rooftop restaurant one night and the view is terrific and the food was ok but they push the specials on you. Dinner for 2 with only one person drinking wine was over $300 USD. We felt quite ripped off.
for 300euro+/night, I would defi not want to stay here again. the Hotel location is excellent, however the room is very disappointing. I feel it is like a 2 start hostel inside. compare to any 5 star hotel I stayed in Rome, this one is so far the worst one, and not match its luxury hotel name. except hotel location, there is really no highlight!
The hotel is in a good location but we were disappointed. Upon arrival the room smelled of smoke, there was leftover food in the refrigerator from the prior guests, and the toilet did not flush. After (3) attempts of repair they finally replaced all the parts.. Truly an inconvenience The spa is old and needs an overhaul . After a day of walking we were disappointed that the jacuzzi was out of order. On a positive note, The breakfast buffet was abundant and delicious For the price I would not recommend this hotel
I have the say the location was fantastic. Walking distance to The Spanish Steps and The Trevi Fountain. The room was sparsely furnished with ugly disheveled curtains and ugly furniture. The breakfast buffet was not up to par for a 5 star hotel. Sat ourselves and had some scrambled eggs. The bacon and pastries were good. The coffee was very very weak and the bussers never walked around and asked if you wanted a refill. They just bussed the tables. Sterile unwelcoming environment. The orange juice not fresh squeezed and was a concentrate watered down. As well as the pineapple juice. I just expected a lot more and was happy I did not waste my money in their restaurant for dinner. Dante the concierge was friendly.
It was disappointing, no service on the rooftop, which was one reason to stay here and a bithday party with DJ and very loud music. I will stay there never again. There are many better 5* hotels in Rome.
