Stayed here for 4 nights in March. On arriving at hotel we had a warm greeting from the reception and were promptly checked in. They spoke perfect English and were really helpful in pointing out where there were good restaurants and sights to see.

We upgraded to a superior room and although the room was small it was perfectly formed. We stayed on 5th floor which involved getting 2 lifts, the second being very small.

The room was furnished nicely, was very clean and had minibar, sky TV and a safe.

The bathroom disappointed me as it was very small and the bath/shower combo didn't really work as there was no seal on the bottom of the shower screen. Do if you wanted a shower you had a very wet floor. This meant having to have baths every day and the bath wasn't exactly big.

The room although street facing was very quiet and our floor only had 6-7 rooms on it so there wasn't any noise from other guests.

We loved the hotel bar. It is very cute and happy hour is between 6-10. 1/2 priced drinks (excluding champagne) making cocktails €5 and beers €2.50. They also have a big range of nibbles: crisps, sandwiches, pastries etc. if you have had a late lunch this would certainly fill you up.

I was really pleased to find the hotel offers free wifi throughout the hotel but they also have 2 computers for guests to use. They were kind enough to print off our boarding passes for our flights too.

Breakfast is lovely also. Loads available including cereals, fruit, yoghurt, breads, muffins, pastries, juice, ham, cheese, salmon, and much more. They also have hot food but I didn't find it very hot and the eggs are done on the well done side shall we say.

We had a great stay and would certainly stay again.

Restaurant tip; if you are looking for a nicer than average meal then try Life. It's about a 15 minute walk. Fantastic food and great service. Just google it.

This lovely hotel made our first visit to Rome a wonderful experience. It is set in an amazing location within easy reach of all the main sites of Rome .For people who enjoy fashion and food this area is the place to be,simply breathtaking but the hotel does not rely on this to be sucessful, this hotel delivers all that you wish for in an excellent hotel with pride. The rooms are small but were spotless and contained all that you need and more, amazing staff delivering finishing touches like choclates on your bed at night with a weather forecast for the next day , excellent choice of breakfast meeting all dietary needs, a generous happy hour of snacks and drinks, and free internet. We will return worth our 100% rating

Wonderful hotel that will make you feel like a millionaire! Turn down service with chocolates, beautiful rooms and bathroom, close to shopping and restaurants...and marble everywhere! Wish we would have stayed in this hotel before our cruise too--it was fabulous!

Amazing location, amazing staff, amazing value. Generous happy hour (s) drinks, free snacks, huge breakfast choices, chocolates on pillow each night, walking distance to all sights, metro literally 200 metres from hotel if not. Staff will help with anything. Free wifi in rooms. Really would recommend this to anyone.

My wife and I have just returned from the River Palace Hotel in Rome on our first ever visit to the Eternal city. We couldn't have chosen better. From the minute we arrived the staff couldn't do enough to help. We were made very welcome and had our cases taken to our rooms. The location was superb, 10 minutes walk to the Spanish Steps and 10 minutes more to the Trevi Fountain. It was also only a 30 minute stroll down the river banks to the Vatican. The Hotel itself was spotless and the happy hour bar complete with free nibbles was an added bonus after a busy day taking in the sights. Our bed was made ready on an night with free chocolates and a weather forecast for the following day. The Italians know how to look after their guests, everyone was so friendly. The whole visit was worthy of 100% rating. We will return

Three nights in Rome surpassed expectations - hotel very nice, were asked if we wanted to upgrade to suite for €30 a night, this offered good value as we were in the top floor suite which has a large terrace - beautiful view to Pincio, over the whole town and to St Peter, all that would be needed is warm spring/summer weather but we were lucky as we had 100% sunshine over New Year. Good breakfast area.

Room Tip: Top floor suite is five star - esp in warmer weather

My wife and spent a week in Feb 2012 at the River Palace. It was our first visit to Rome the staff at the hotel was awesome. The location was great we walked to all the sites from the hotel and there is transportation right out front of the hotel. The morning breakfast was good and the rooms were very clean. When I make it back to Rome I will be staying at the river palace. Chris and Heather Jenkins
