Pincio
Ranked #546 of 1,269 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We stayed for 3 nights in the Hotel Pincio before our cruise in May. We travelled with a group of 13 friends and booked the hotel on the internet .
We chose the hotel for its position, which was fantastic, 5 minutes to the Spanish Steps and the Metro station, 10 minutes to the Trevi Fountain and 10 to 15 minutes to the Pantheon and close enough to walk to many other tourist attractions. There were many restaurants within a 10 - 15 minutes walk.
The room we had was on the 4th floor and we found it quite spacious with a modern bathroom and very comfortable bed. We could also use the hotel's wifi in our room which was a bonus.
We found the complimentary breakfast very good, although the breakfast room on the 6th floor is small, so filled up quickly.
Some of the trip advisor reviews we read were less than complimentary which concerned us a little, especially being such a big group, but we were all pleasantly surprised and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Room 402 very good

Pincio Via Capo le Case 50, 187 Rome, Italy Hotel amenities

I stayed at the Hotel Pincio in May 2013 for 4 nights with my two children during half term. It was there first trip to Rome and I wanted a centrally located hotel that could provide a triple room at reasonable rates. The hotel ticked all those boxes perfectly, its in a great location 5 minutes walk to the Spanish steps and a 10 minute walk to the trevi fountain.

The room, 403 was smart, clean and well decorated. The bathroom was a good sized with a large shower although the hot water wasn't that hot if you like a really high temperature. Breakfast is ample and you are well looked after by the staff. I would recommend you to ask the member of staff on duty to make you your coffee as the standard filter coffee on 'tap' is mediocre to say the least.

I would definitely go back to the hotel for future trips.

The Hotel Pincio is a small, quiet hotel minutes away from major attractions including Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and great shopping and restaurants. Clean, spacious rooms and helpful staff made this a pleasure. Each day got off to a great start with a nice continental breakfast.We highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel Pincio is a great location for walking to all of the major sites in Rome. Just minutes from the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, it was nice to walk out of the hotel and be able to see some of the sites. In addition, there was plenty of shopping and dining quite near. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the hotel was always clean and accommodating.

When staying at Pincio, you must check in and use the desk at the hotel across the street as the two are owned by the same company; however, this never posed a problem for us. While mildly inconvenient, once we were checked in we didn't have much of a reason to go to the lobby of the other hotel. The breakfast, which was included with the cost of the room, was good but not horribly filling.

The room itself was very nice and clean. It seemed to be newly remodeled, and all the typical accommodations were included. The modern look might not be typical of Rome, but it was comfortable and reminiscent of a room you would find in the US. Overall, our stay at Hotel Pincio was pleasant, and we would certainly return when in Rome in the future.

The hotel is in perfect location near to Spanish Steps and Fontana di Trevi. Nice clean and very good breakfast.
Avoid room in 6th floor due to breakfast preparation was too noise.
I think is a good choice if you find a rate near 90 euros.

Room Tip: Avoid room in 6th floor due to breakfast preparation was too noise and 1st floor.

I stayed at Hotel Pincio for 5 nights during a recent vacation. I had arranged a shuttle from the airport and the shuttle driver said, "Hotel Concordia?" I was confused, but then learned Hotel Pincio and Hotel Concordia (which is a across the street from Pincio) are owned by the same company and the lobby for both hotels is in Hotel Concordia's building. Hotel Pincio is remodeled and modern while Concordia is old and not a desirable place to stay. So be sure that you get Pincio if that's what you are reserving as other reviews indicate people sometimes show up and Pincio is full. That was not the case for us, though. Overall Hotel Pincio was a great location - only 5 minutes from the Spanish Steps and the metro stop in PIazza Spagna, only 5-7 minutes from Trevi Fountain, and only 10-15 minutes from the Pantheon. The staff was friendly and helpful enough in person. What did impress me was their response to an email I had sent before coming: I emailed their general address about arranging a shuttle and I had a response within 30 minutes. The breakfast was very good, with cappiccino and espresso upon request. The only negative I can say about the place is that the rooms in Pincio are advertised as having wifi, but when we arrived we were told the wifi was broken (I just don't think they have wifi set up in the rooms) and that we would have to come to the lobby at Hotel Concordia to use the internet. At first this was very upsetting as we had booked the room because of the advertised wifi capability, but it ended up not being such as bother as it was fun to interact with the staff.

Located very close to the Spanish steps, and 5 minutes from the Trevi fountain, the Pincio was a great base for our group, who spent a minimal amount of time in their rooms or the hotel!

Check-in was handled efficiently at the Concordia hotel straight across the road, as The Pincio has no lobby area (the Concordia also stored our luggage on the last day). Breakfast is served in the conservatory on the top floor of The Pincio; it is basic but covers essential needs - tea, coffee, pastries, cereals, meat, cheese, boiled eggs, bread, jams and some unidentified juices.

The rooms are functional, clean and most are big enough to accommodate an extra single bed, so can sleep 3. The ensuite bathrooms were well designed and clean, with complimentary toiletries and a full set of fresh towels left daily.

If wi-fi is important to you, this is not the hotel for you, as, although it is available, for free, it is situated in the lobby of the Concordia hotel opposite only and not in The Pincio at all.

The rooms at the back of the hotel are over the kitchens to a neighbouring restaurant which was a bit noisy sometimes.

We were a large party (15) and 2 of our group were moved to another sister hotel, situated about 200m up the hill, which was frustrating. Reading other reviews it does appear that the hotel has at least 3 properties and moves people about between them at will.

Overall very good value for money and a great base for visiting Rome; we walked everywhere from here, except when wearing heels!
