Reviewed 24 March 2014

We stayed here for our first wedding anniversary. The hotel is small, but beautifully decorated with antiques & Art Deco pieces. The staff were friendly, helpful and made our stay extra special. For a hotel of this quality it's very reasonably priced and the food is excellent.

The hotel is behind Vila Borgese, it is set back from the centre of Rome by the park.

It is around a 15 min walk through the park from the Spanish steps, meaning it's possible to walk to most of the sites though I found it a bus or taxi occasionally were needed. Alternatively the tram 19 or tram 3 stop near by at the modern art gallery. Most taxi drivers seemed to know the hotel without much explanation.

Around the hotel, there are a few bars/restaurants, though the area is a little sleepy compared to other parts of Rome.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review. We feel we have been the right hotel on your first wedding anniversary. We work on romance as one of our top values. For your future plans, please know the Hotel Lord Byron has added new bicycles for guest use to explore the area and easily move within the city center.
Thank you and kind regards.

Such a great hotel, the staff are so helpful and friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. The shared areas of the hotel are beautifully furnished and immaculately clean.The location in a leafy suburb is so quiet yet only 10 minutes by taxi to the centre of town. You wont regret staying here.

It’s a pleasure to stay at the Lord Byron, a hotel that exudes an atmosphere of peace and calm. Public rooms are exquisitely furnished, bedrooms are comfortable.
The Lord Byron enjoys a quiet location in a residential area only a short stroll from the outstanding National Gallery of Modern Art (19th & 20th Century), the Etruscan Museum and the delightful Borghese Gardens. The Borghese Gallery, Spanish Steps, Via Veneto and good restaurants are also within walking distance, although you are likely to take a taxi back up the hill to the hotel.
The hotel is, however, not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. There are thirteen steps up to the entrance and steps inside to the restaurant and bar. Otherwise this hotel makes a good base for a pleasant stay in Rome.

The people who work at this hotel are fantastic. They happily made an array of recommendations and reservations for us, as well as corrected several different minor problems that we had in the room. That's a quality that many hotels cannot boast, the ability to address issues head-on and rectify any complaints. My parents' complaint was in regards to their bathroom. With no hesitation, the manager moved them to a different room, found them a plastic bathmat, and made sure the new bathroom was perfect. Such a quick, concerned response is the hallmark of a great hotel.

Additionally, the property is in excellent condition -- no nicks or scratches on the walls or furniture; it's like a little Art Deco museum. You feel like you're in a little refuge, all your own. If you want to sleep, then this is the place for you because the storm shades lock into position to blot out all light, and there is zero noise because you're so far removed from the hustle and bustle of Rome. -- and that's something that might bother some travelers, but we were ready to unwind. That's where Lord Byron shines; it's a shining, quiet place to return after a long day of touring and walking.

My only complaint with the hotel is its weak breakfast, but Mediterranean countries don't really pride themselves on their breakfasts. In Spain, it's much the same -- drink a coffee, eat a piece of toast or pastry, and wait for the real food at midday. I just need to keep that in mind and avoid falling into hotel breakfast traps, even if they're included in the room rate!

We wanted a romantic and relaxing break in Rome over the New Year, we found The Lord Byron through trip advisor and thought we would give it a go. I'm so pleased we did, the hotel itself is superbly decorated, in a style that Hercule Poirot would approve of, the rooms are of a high quality with everything you need, very comfortable, quiet and well furnished. The public rooms are in a similar style, the whole essence of the place exudes relaxation.

The staff are utterly superb, nothing seemed too much trouble - especially their patience with my stuttering attempt at Italian.

All in all a lovely break and should we return to Rome, this is where we will stay again.

The hotel belong to the network Small Leading Hotel of the world and, for this reason, maintains an high quality standard. It is more a boutique hotel and it is situated in a small building in Parioli area. It offers rooms, junior suites and suite. The location is quite nice for who prefer to avoid Rome chaos nevertheless remaining at only 10 minutes walking to Rome center (Piazza del Popolo square) through amazing Villa Borghese gardens. The personnel are helpful and always available to find best solution. The taxi station is only 2 minutes walking from hotel. Breakfast is always included but do not expect huge range of choices. Just a classical international breakfast buffet. Nevertheless the food quality is really high. There I ate one of best scrambled eggs of my entire life.
The prices (even if I cannot say that they are cheap) are quite in line for the Rome's standards for same quality hotel. The final point is: if you want to feel a true Roman experience (with chaos, people around, horns and traffic) it will be better to choice a different hotel straight in the city center; instead if you want a nice place to rest and stay without renounce to all the Roman opportunity this hotel can be a good option.

The Lord Byron is a small, elegant hotel located in a beautiful part of Rome near the Borghese Gardens. The vibe is sophisticated but welcoming. The hotel caters to the well travelled and the continental flare is evident in every way.......from the breakfast in the dining room to cocktails in the loveliest, most intimate bar in Rome. And the two bartenders are fabulous! The rooms are lovely and well decorated, and the staff is very attentive.
