This review is long overdue. My husband and I took our honeymoon a year and a half after getting married. Rome was our final stop in Italy and we absolutely cannot say enough about this hotel. We were there in November 2011. The decor is grand, beautiful deco-chic in the lobby, bar and little library. Then the rooms are kind of elegant 60s and 70s. Think Jacqui O. An odd mixture but it works. It is situated a little distance from Rome's main hustle-bustle, but the central attractions are easily accessible via walking or a cab (the Lord Byron will get you a taxi in 10 seconds). We usually walked to and from our excursions to work off the sublime food we were eating. It is a few miles to Roma central. The way into Rome is downhill, the way back is uphill so wear comfortable (but fashionable-you are in Rome!) shoes and get your cardio on. The Lord Byron is right near the Villa Borghese which is a must-see. The villa is a fabulous museum and then stroll through the gardens down into the wonderful chaos of the Spanish steps, Via Veneto, Trevi, all of it. The staff at the Lord Byron are absolutely incredible. They make this place magical and special. Every single person was so lovely, so helpful, so warm, so friendly. We cannot rave enough about the service. We found staying here an incredibly good value, they even upgraded our room. Breakfast was included in our price. The coffee was good, the fruit fresh. We kept breakfast light so we could indulge later in the day in Rome's out of control delicious food. Choose the Lord Byron, they will not disappoint.
