“Great value and location”
Reviewed 12 November 2009

The hotel is ideally located to all major attractions. It is a small hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is included with choices of pastries, rolls, yogurt and fresh fruit . The rooms are quite small but very clean. We were fortunate to get the larger room with two twin beds.
We enjoyed walking and seeing all the sights so close to our hotel. The longest walk was to the Vatican which took about 45 minutes.

The Hotel is allways overbooked so they move You to another hotel with back-yard standard. Never book this Hotel.

Stayed here for five nights; I was in room 103 which I think might be a staff room (very modern, fantastically powerful shower, hairdryer in room etc.), my friend was in the Caravaggio room (402 on the fourth floor) which was more hotel style as in the pictures. Rooms not huge but well air-conditioned & all you'll want to do is sleep when you hit the pillows anyway! The staff on the desk were lovely, not the best English but very good anyway, and the lovely lady who greeted us every morning with a cheery smile & a cappucino in the terrace breakfast room every morning! Even has a lift for the big bags. Brilliant location, right between Piazza Barberini and the Trevi fountain and about a 25 minute walk with bags to Termini station and similar to the colosseum. Would happily stay here again, I just wanted them to give me a job so I could stay!!

Stayed 4 nights at Fenice hotel. Location is fantastic, between Spanish Steps & Trevi Fountain. Rooms (2nd floor) is small but convenient. Clean and functional small bathroom. Our room was very quiet. Amenities are basic (no hairdryer, no kettle, no ironing board - none can be borrowed from reception). Good choice for a reasonible price.

We just got back a few weeks ago and absolutely adored this hotel! The rooms were incredibly clean, convenient and great bathrooms! The terrace breakfast room was a perfect start to each day! The only word of caution would be to make sure that you're booked for the right hotel. We arrived and were told they over-booked and would be taking us to The Stylish. We put up a small fight but after being told it was relatively the same location we accepted and went to the new place. The Stylish I would not recommend. The rooms were brand new and quite nice but I felt like I was in a Manhattan apartment (where we're from) and not an authentic Italian villa. The hotel was also a 15 minute walk from anything... this was incredibly annoying and we moved back to the La Fenice for the remaining two nights...

To sum it up, the location is amazing, the breakfast terrace wonderful and the staff a real charm. Just make sure you end up in the hotel you booked (and not one of the other affiliates).

Between the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, the location was great. The hotel was very clean, freshly painted and carpeted, with nice furnishings. It was quiet and had air conditioning. The room was only about 10X12 feet, a challenge to put your luggage down and still move around, but the bathroom was nicely done in marble and adequately sized. If you can get used to the small space (we did, as we're not in the room much), the hotel is a great value.
The "view" from the one small window was ugly, but the small breakfast room was pleasant and the buffet good. The staff is polite, but not equipped to give much sightseeing info or assistance like some hotels do. They can help you find things listed in your guidebook.

My son and I just came back from 5 night stay at La Fenice. We had the best time! The staff was great, especially the girl in the breakfast room, and the white haired gentleman on the graveyard shift at the desk. La Fenice is a great value for it's location. It is like others have said, so close to everything. And , if it's not close, the bus is. We never did use the metro but it is just 5 min walk as is a main taxi stand area. The only complaint I have is that the beds were a little hard. But, even with that, I would stay there again.
