I liked the hotel. It was good choice considering the outlandish costs of a 5 star hotel in Rome. I definitely liked the location. It's close to the action of the Spanish Steps, the Via Veneto and Borghese Park, yet it's slightly off the beaten path, away from the maddening crowd. Admittedly the concierge's service and advice was outstanding throughout our stay (5-nights). We had reserved a 1-bedroom suite. The atmosphere was 17th century charming, and it had all the right small conveniences, (shower curtain instead of those outdated half windows that create a flooded mess). My only real complaint about the hotel was that the suite was quite small and cramped. There seemed to be more space on the balcony than in the living room, which had only 2 wing chairs from which to sit. Initially I questioned the hotel about this, wondering if they had perhaps given me a junior suite, but was told a junior suite has only 1 large room. Okay. It is what it is. We also had drinks at their roof top bar/ resturaunt which was luxurious, super expensive, but worth the effort. Rome in general is a VERY expensive city and this hotel offers high quality luxury accomodations at a more reasonable price. The Splendide is hardly cheap, but the costs for the same suite at other hotels along the Via Venetto would have been considerably more. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Adding a suite with the balcony makes all the difference.

thank you very much for your review, it is important and precious to us that you took the time to express your point of view.
Our suites with terrace are some of the largest rooms in the hotel and our biggest terraces, considering the average space in the downtown area of Rome we would say that our suites are larger than the most of the other hotels and are glad that you enjoyed the terrace during your stay with us.
Thank you very much for your kind comments and we are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, we are looking forward to welcoming you again to the Eternal City for your next visit!
