My husband and I have recently returned from a 4 night/5 day stay at the Majestic, Rome. We thoroughly recommend it.
Firstly, the location of the hotel is very good. We prefer to walk and used no public transport except a taxi to and from the airport. It took approximately 40 minutes from the hotel to the Vatican, 30 minutes to the Colosseum, 6 minutes to the Spanish Steps, 12 minutes to the Trevi Fountain. Obviously being winter the temperatures were suitable for brisk walking and we would probably have been a bit slower in high summer.
The hotel itself is charming; think 5 star service rather than slick and high-tech. It's very comfortable, very smart and very well maintained. The staff were all so nice.The staff at breakfast were the best of all. They were efficient and noticed when you needed something almost instantly. Nothing was too much trouble. They were very, very good at their jobs. The food was also, of course, of the first order; an international style selection of everything you can imagine for breakfast.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The decor was in good order. Our room was a standard double and perfectly large enough. The bed linen was changed daily. Everything in the room worked. There was a room safe, as you'd expect. The hair dryer was attached to the bathroom wall which I do not like at all because I have long hair and have an uncomfortable time drying it. There was no kettle/ tea tray, again as usual.
Would I stay here again? Yes, without hesitation.
Room tip: I would ask for a room away from the Via Veneto, which had far more traffic on it than I had expected. Light sleepers might be disturbed by the road noise.
Taxi tip: the journey to Rome from the airport is set at 40 Euro by the Rome council. We confirmed this with the driver as we got into the taxi at the airport and had no problem upon arrival at the hotel. When it came to leave the hotel telephoned a taxi for us, we did not double check the fair and we soon noticed the driver had put his meter on instead. As we were on the way home we could nbot be bothered to argue, but paid the 75 Euros instead. We could have avoided this by talking to the driver before getting into the car.
