My husband and I treated our granddaughter to a trip to Rome, an experience she wanted and we were happy to accompany her. We booked four nights at the Hotel Barocco in Piazza Barberini in Rome. I was so pleased with this Hotel because our first booking, many years ago, at a hotel in Rome was not a good one.

The Hotel is clean and inviting. The concierge service was friendly, helpful and accommodating and very professionally handled. Our room was large, clean, nicely kept with a large bathroom and a huge whirlpool tub. The linens were plentiful, beds crisp, clean and comfortable and a turn-down service was also provided.

A lovely breakfast room with small tables, flowers on each table, tablecloths and linen napkins greeted us each morning. There was an assortment of breakfast offerings, buffet style, as well as a menu of omelets, French Toast, etc. The room was cozy, the food was very good, and the selections varied each morning.

The Hotel has a great location that made it easy to walk and see the sights.

The only minor negatives I had were that the shower stall was extremely small; no instructions were provided for the whirlpool tub and we couldn't start it because the remote had not been provided. Two reading lights next to the bed had been burned out and were not replaced.

I would highly recommend this Hotel. We had a wonderful experience and would return. The negatives were minor ones and no reason not to consider this location. We also so appreciated the concierge staff who provided answers to all our questions, made dinner reservations, called drivers and cabs for us all done in a professional manner. We would return and maybe the next time our granddaughter can take us!!

I am writing this review for the skeptical American traveler such as myself…

My first recommendation is for you to read thru the other reviews from Americans on this Hotel. It is unheard of that a European Hotel has this many great reviews written by other Americans! Those who travel a lot thru Europe understand that when you see a European 5-Star rating that usually equates to a 2-3 rating back home. The Barocco Hotel in US standards would be a high 3.5 to a low 4 Star Overall (in my opinion)

Also understand that Rome is a big city and as in New York, Boston or DC. Hotel rooms in these city centers usually have smaller size rooms than if you would get a room out in the ‘burbs somewhere!

The Hotel Baracco is very good from a US service standpoint. They are very accommodating and will help with directions, restaurant choices and arranging for transportation. They can arrange a car service (late model Mercedes or Alpha Romeo sedan) to/from FCO airport (at the time we were there $55 Euro each way) or to/from the Cruise Terminal in Civitavecchia (130 Euros). Our Cruise line wanted to charge us 539 Euros for a similar service.

There is almost always someone at the front desk that speaks English and they are always very accommodating! So the service is exceptional based on what you normally receive in Europe.

The Hotel is centrally located in Rome and is a 3 minute walk to the Spanish Steps and about the same to Trevi Fountain. It is in the Embassy area and we have always felt very safe. It is located off of the Piazza Barberini. The Main subway line is there and if you are used to using the subway it is a cheap way to travel the city @1.50 euro each way... 3 stops to the coliseum and 6 stops and a short walk to the Vatican. Otherwise it is about a 6 minute Cab ride each… approx. 12 euros …

It is a busy area and just as if you were staying in NYC, if you are a light sleeper you may not want a room right off of the street. At the time of booking let them know this. They are very accommodating and will do whatever it takes to make your stay a pleasant one. The pre-trip communication that we had with them was outstanding. Fabrizio Alegi took care of all the Car transfers for us and room requests via email, before we even left the states. His follow up was outstanding!

The first time we stayed at the Hotel Barocco (2011) we stayed in room 43, which has a gorgeous terrace and outdoor tub overlooking the Piazza and the fountain. The room was average. The Terrace made for an outstanding overall experience.
This last time we stayed in room 42. It was a similar size room with a much smaller but cute little balcony. It was quaint but not as outstanding as the experience of room 43.

Both times we had the Breakfast including, which is outstanding. Fresh bakery, fruit, meats and made to order eggs and other items. If this is not included in your room rate, you must negotiate it in, it is worth it!

We will stay at the Hotel Barocco again on our next trip to Italy as it is an outstanding home base for us when we are in Rome!

Room Tip: Room 43 Terrace with Tub that Overlooks Piazza and Fountain

Stayed 2 nights (our first two of 13 in Italy) at the Barocco and were very pleased. The rooms were clean and the location was fantastic. The staff was extremely helpful in every way and that made the hotel. A/C was typical European - average, but it was a great stay. Fruit in the rooms and a good breakfast.

Lovely boutique hotel in the heart of Rome! The staff was very helpful and friendly in this tucked away gem. We stayed 5 nights in Rome in June 2014. We could walk most places in 5-10 minutes due to the central location. Our rooms were small but of high quality. The special touches we received throughout our stay is what makes Barocco so special.......flowers and fruit upon arrival.......chocolates on departure....... We stayed here over the Westin due to the breakfast and free wi-fi. The breakfast was great but the wi-fi was horrible. If you need to get online for work beware of the wi-fi.......the only disappointment for our family work/vacation.

Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, lovely rooms.
We were celebrating a family event, and the staff helped us with transport and various other arrangements - all professionally and faultlessly delivered, plus complimentary Prosecco and lovely touches such as fruit in the rooms, and little boxes of Hotel Barocco sweets upon collection from our cruise to the hotel. My own room was upgraded to a suite with beautiful terrace overlooking the Piazza Barberini - divine.
Point for improvement: the wifi was not really useable/strong enough for email, but that could be down to the particular room location

Great hotel stayed 5 nights . From the reception desk to the breakfast it was all great. Our room was next to the entry door to the hall so Id recommend not getting that room if you want to sleep in, but the room itself was great. Service was excellent and the people were all helpful in recommending dinner or sights. Very friendly staff. After we checked in we went for our first walk in Rome and upon our return was a bottle of champagne and a note congratulating us and thanking us for choosing them for our honeymoon. That was very cool.

Room Tip: stay at opposite end from entry door to hallway.

Great location. Excellent staff helpful finding top restaurants. Large, clean quiet room. Breakfast was excellent--more choices than anyone could want- very good quality food. I can highly recommend this hotel over higher priced ones because of its location and non-snooty staff.

Room Tip: choose an "inside" room for quiet at night.
