My stay at Hotel Barocco was a wonderful experience. The staff were charming and friendly, spoke English and put up with my inadequate Italian as well. The old world-style hotel is made almost entirely of gleaming travertine marble, has a small but incredibly efficient very modern elevator, and a beautiful breakfast room which was included in the price of my room. The breakfast was bountiful, fresh and elegant, and I had beautiful omelettes along with a choice of cheeses, olives, breads, yogurt, fruit, juices and lots of other wonderful things.
My bed was wonderfully comfortable. My queen room and its beautiful travertine and very modern bathroom were spotless every single day, and any request I made of the desk or staff was instantly attended to. On the night before I checked out, I had beautiful pastries waiting for me and a lovely hand-written note of thanks from the manager.
The location of the hotel is very good as well - Piazza di Spagna is easily reached by walking up the street, and there is great shopping and food nearby. Palazzo Barberini is literally up the street in another direction and is a beautiful villa with a stunning art and sculpture collection, and boasts a ballroom with a magnificently frescoed ceiling. The fountain in the piazza was actually undergoing restoration while I was there due to the ongoing fountain restoration projects going on in Rome.
I would definitely stay at Hotel Barocco again and I completely recommend it to anyone who appreciates an elegant, discreet and beautiful hotel. Belissima.
