The staff at the Hasssler could not have been more helpful. They went out of the way to make our stay a pleasant one. The hotel is very exclusive and yes many famous people stay there. The police out the front and the odd viewing of the said famous people reinforce this. It is thoroughly charming and very picturesque.
It is also not as super expensive as the best hotels of Paris, New York, Tokyo or London.
BUT you really need to choose your room. Lesson 1 - there are rooms that are renovated and rooms that are not! They quickly moved us to a better room from our un-renovated monster which was lovely of them because I was going to cry if I had to stay in room105. They also moved us to an even more modern room on the second day while we were out segwaying! Lesson 2 - don't ask for the view of the Spanish steps. The garden view rooms were all booked out for a reason. Rome is noisy ( we had a car alarm keep us awake for an hour one night) and the road at the top of the Spanish steps/ the base of the hotel is a very busy one, strangely. Go to the restaurant Imago to experience the view!
The standard of luxury hotels in Rome is not what I would expect in a major tourist destination. We have stayed in one other on a previous occasion and walking the streets as you do in this city, it becomes pretty clear that there is a certain rustic charm to all of the hotels. You have to accept that you are going to get character. So, what should you get from my review?
I really do believe that the Hassler is one of the best that Rome has to offer and the service was flawless, but make sure you ask for what you want. Is a modern bathroom important? Do you expect a renovated room? You can only ask. We did, and the staff were stunning in trying to accommodate our needs.
