We only had a drink in this perfect terrace bar overlooking the mayhem of the Spanish Steps. Impeccable service - an abolute delight!

This is a fantastic little gem of a place, nestled right on the spanish steps, we had room 4 on the fourth floor, with amazing views out onto the steps, and access to the outside terrace, which we had all to ourselves...... i have to be honest i felt a teeny bit smug as i sat on my balcony, sipping a glass of fizz, with people on the steps looking up and wondering ' how did she get there?! hehe! pure class. the location is bang on the money, the rooms are very luxurious, the bonus of a kettle and tea/coffee was very welcome, the bathroom is huge compared to other hotels, and i loved it! the staff very friendly and helpful, everything was top dollar, even the price, worth every penny. The breakfast over at the Hassler was v good, and I liked that I got to use the Hassler, but stayed at the younger and more hip baby sister on the steps - as it was less pretentious and 'old'(no offence Hassler, just personal taste :) . if i get to return to have another Roman holiday - i will most definitely stay here again. I loved it and it made my trip to this beautiful city even more magical.

Room Tip: Ask for room 4 - it's at the top and it's the best!

We loved Il Palazzetta. Right on the Spanish Steps. Wonderful assistance by the desk personnel, especially Daniella. And the amenities of the Hassler without the cost of staying in the Hassler. We loved our room (#4), thoroughly enjoyed breakfast at the Hassler. I used their fitness room, and we used their bikes (could use some new bikes, or at least some good repair!).
We also recommend using Context Travel for city walks. Their docents are great. We left Rome feeling like we had really experienced it. Here are some things we recommend doing:
Eating:
Best Gelato: Crispina
Best Coffee: Saint Eustachio
Best Roman Trattoria: Gino's
Great Roman dinner: Al Moro
Must see: the Burghese Museum, reservations required.
Great walk: The Ghetto (Richard Steve's book is good for this)

Room Tip: Only 4 rooms. Am sure all are great, but #4 is right at the top.

I have travelled around the world and have been fortunate enough to stay in some of the finest hotels ... and I would rank this among them. It is small, it is quiet, the staff is discrete and pleasant, it is central, clean... in short, quite perfect. Not inexpensive, but by Roman (and Hassler) standards, not breaking the bank either. Thanks very much for a quick, perfect layover.

We stayed in Il Palazzetto #4, which is on the 4th floor with easy access to the rooftop balcony overlooking the Spanish Steps. Ask for room #4 if you stay here! There are only 3 other rooms in the hotel (Il Palazzetto is an offshoot of Hassler Hotel across the street), and we were the only ones staying there in late February. All three desk attendants at Il Palazzetto were friendly and helpful with reservations/directions, etc. The breakfast buffet at the Hassler Hotel was excellent, and although our reservation suggested continental breakfast, they had no problem with us participating in the full breakfast each day. We highly recommend Il Palazzetto!

Room Tip: Il Palazzetto #4, only room on top floor.

We stayed 5 nights in room 2 overlooking the Spanish Steps. Our room was very clean and serviced twice a day so we always had warm, dry towels. The staff were excellent, especially Daniella on reception, and couldn't do enough to help us. Breakfast, included in the room rate, was at the nearby Hassler hotel and you had a couple of minutes walk outside to get there which is not a problem even in the rain in February. If you like a hotel with lots of amenities, food and drink, then this hotel is not for you.
If however you enjoy exclusivity, personal service, location and value inteh centre of Rome, book here.

Room Tip: Three if the four rooms overlook the Spanish Steps, so request this

Four nights in room 2 in late October. Quick although somewhat formal check in at hotel Hassler, but very welcoming host at Il Palazzetto and fantastic location for first time visitor to Rome. Great thing about this place for us was it was super quiet even though the Spanish Steps are mere meters away, also the feeling of being in a small boutique apartment rather than a big hotel chain. Expensive but excellent breakfast in a terrific room setting in Hassler. Eye wateringly expensive to book a guide through the Hotel, but a good way to skip the queues and make the most of your investment to get there in the first place.
