“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

The most outstanding thing about the hotel was the staff. Professional as well as warm and very helpful. They suggested good restaurants with serious critiques, helped us with several major travel problems, and were there when we needed them but were not hovering. The hotel itself is very lovely. The location is great for visiting Rome. And it offers a serious challenge to other hotels, offering what is one of the most delicious breakfasts we have ever experienced. It has become a very strong favorite of ours.

We stayed at a family suite at the Barocco, which had plenty of space and comfort for the two of us. While Piazza Barberini (which our room faced) is noisy, we thought this was bearable with the windows closed; and the metro station right there is a big plus. The main negative in this hotel were the curtains, almost sheer, which let in too much of the light from the piazza, to the point of interfering with our sleep. In our room, they also blocked the flow of air from the AC system. Bottom line: bring your shades, open the curtains, and enjoy a cool night's sleep in this hotel's very comfortable beds. Also, if you want more quiet, avoid rooms with a "city view", which means facing the noise of Piazza Barberini.

Excellent location, very good breakfast and friendly staff. A lot of the major attractions are within a walking distance and if you are taking any one of the city tour buses the stop is just across the street. Rooms are small but clean, quiet and nice and at your arrival you'll find a nice complementary plate of fruit. My only advise is to take a sleep mask with you because there is a lot of light entering into the rooms at night from the street lights, other than that I would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your contribution. I am just a little puzzled over the advice you give other guests.

Why carry a face mask when all you have to do is close the shutters. This is all you need in order to ensure complete darkness!

Hope you visit us again in the future.

Kind regards,

Franco Caruso

Beautiful room. Stayed in the terrace room with spa. Service is very friendly. Breakfast is very tasty! Nice array of meats, fruit, pastry, and hard cooked eggs. They have sky tv which allows one to watch shows in native tongue. Shower is interesting and lights up colors. I honestly struggled with how to work faucets, but nice once I figured it out. Bed is very comfy but small. Good excuse to snuggle hee hee !

This is an exceptionally friendly and comfortable hotel. Excellent breakfast and helpful staff on reception. It is a few steps from the metro station, and a very short walk to lots of the "sights". The only slight down was that our room had some noise from the street at night: but what do you expect so centrally? Also it would be brilliant to have coffee in the rooms. But we would certainly recommend the Barocco to friends.

Perfect location, comfortable bed, friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast. Hotel is centrally located within walking distance of all major attractions in Rome. The rooms are very quiet with few street noises. I will stay there again anytime I am in Rome.

The Borocco Hotel is abaolutely fantastic. My partner and I could not fault the cleanliness of the hotel, in its entirety. The breakfast choice was excellent, and the location faultless.

The staff were an absolute pleasure, and could not do enough to help us. Traditional 'old school' customer service. The staff are a real asset to this hotel.

Would highly recommend Borocco, to anyone. AMAZING.

Room Tip: The Deluxe Double is a compact room, but excellent value.
