“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This was a very nice hotel, we paid the 15 euro upgrade to stay in a newly renovated room which was very nice. We really liked the full n fluffy pillows n comfortable bed! The only negative was our room was near the service room n lift so was noisey. Both the upstairs & lobby patio were very nice & the music on the lobby patio was good. It would have been nice to have the upstairs patio open/available any night to enjoy sitting outside & have a glass of wine. (ie. the upstairs patio was only open the night the hotel sponsored a BBQ, although very good food, it was a pricey BBQ).
We were 15-20 min walk from the Vatican and numerous other attractions which was great! And there were a number of close restaurants n pubs within walking distance. The staff was very pleasant and helpful!

quiet immediate area w/ local restaurants, but mostly able to walk to most major sites (15-40 min, spanish steps, trevi fountain, , pantheon, piazza narvona.) taxi to colosseum and vatican worth it. nice included breakfast, nice personnel. E48 from main terminal, would walk a few blocks for a taxi if no luggage. Our rooms were ready upon 9 am arrival. Check out the excellent flutist Rosaino Fuga on the deck. recommend for a city hotel. did not eat there except for breakfast but a casual drink before going out was ridiculously expensive. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the deck as opposed to the street. (inside hallway).

My wife and I are just back from a five night stay at the Visconti Palace Hotel, situated close to the Vatican. It was our second time of staying and undoubtedly there will be a third and more. Our room was clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The breakfast was second to none and catered for just about every taste. We found the staff friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. For instance, after inquiring about tickets for the Museo Borghese a member of the hotel staff immediately made a reservation for us. The hotel is in easy walking distance to many of Rome's attractions as well as to Lepanto station on the metro. My wife and I really can't fault this hotel and, as I say, our recent stay was the second of what I am sure will be many visits. Simply excellent!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the premier rooms on the 5th and 6th floors.

We stayed here for a few nights prior to leaving on a cruise. The room hotel is well-located, within an easy walk to the Vatican. There is choice of many good restaurants and shopping all close by. We enjoyed a very good albeit somewhat expensive dinner in the rooftop terrace restaurant. Breakfasts were excellent! However, two major aspects detracted from the enjoyment of our stay - our room was quite small and more important, it was extremely noisy in our room. The sounds from the hallway and from adjacent rooms were much louder than they should be.

Fantastic stay at this hotel, location is ideal for the Vatican Museum and the Castel Sant'Angelo.
Also not far from this hotel is the main square where you can jump on the no 87 bus and go straight to the Colosseum or Coliseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre and the Trevi Fountain. The ticket is an all day ticket for 6 euros and you just use the ticket machine in the main square which is easy to use and can alter settings to English.
The hotel had really friendly staff and a great selection at breakfast in a really comfortable and bright setting, you can also sit and have drinks on the roof top listening to background music whilst you chat and also an outside reception area where you can sit and enjoy drinks. The rooms were really comfortable.
All in all a great hotel to base yourself when visiting Rome.

This hotel was like going back in time to the 80s

Not only is the decor dated and cheap (nothing like the PR photos), the whole experience reminded me of the complacency hotels used to have, right down to getting cleaners to hoover the corridor while customers are trying to sleep

The format is like any low-end American chain. The beds, linen, carpet and furnishings are cheap and uncomfortable, the TV at least 10 years old, remote batteries don't work, bathroom tatty, toiletries cheap, shower goes hot and cold, etc.

Breakfast was well stocked in the generic buffet style, but quality poor (trough of rubbery scrambled eggs, stewed coffee, etc. you know the drill)

2 things in the room make it worse than the average low-end American chain. Poor wifi. (and they want to charge you for 1mb speed), and then: no ironing board - either in the room or available from house-keeping - something I haven't encountered in 25 years of business travelling. Even Ibis or something as woeful would have an ironing room. Not here though. Here they will press your shirts for you for 5 Eur each (...but not after 5pm, when it would be useful). This says all you need to know about the attitude towards customers.

I guess it's suitable for coach trip tourists, but I won't be back

My wife and I have just returned from a short stay at this hotel. Our room was on the fifth floor and was excellent. Clean, comfortable bed, good bathroom. We could not fault it; we were both very pleased with it.
We had breakfast included on our trip and again were pleased with the selection; lots of variety and a good quality. Particular mention to Stefano in the dining room who welcomed us each morning at breakfast and was always polite enough to encourage me with my poor Italian so thank you to him. We found all the staff very professional, polite and helpful.

As far as location, it is just off the Piazza Cavour a nice quite piazza in comparison to lots of others, which was perfect. Saying that there are lots of places to eat. Restaurants, trattorias, estorias, cafes and Gelaterias. An easy walk to the Vatican, Piazza Popola, Spanish Steps etc.
I would stay here again should I visit Rome.
Transfer tip
You can get the Siti bus from Fumincial airport directly to the Piazza Cavour (stance 3) which is a good cost saving way to go. Just be aware it can seem like a bit of a free for all as there seems to be no real system of boarding; and lets just say that some people do not grasp the system of queuing and waiting their turn.
