Relais Pierret Piazza di Spagna

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2008

This hotel is located one building to the left of the Spanish Steps just over a Furla purse store. The location is ideal. The rooms are small, but feel more spacious because the ceilings are sky high. The bathroom is nicely done and there is plenty of airconditioning. The hotel has charm, fabulous staff who are happy to provide suggestions, arrange tours and answer all your questions. The hotel staff arranged guided tours of the Vatican and the Colleseum for us and the addtional cost was well worth it. Boris Regner was our guide and he was terrific (incredibly knowledgeable, speaks fluent English and a pleasure to spend time with). With the guide (a cost of 170 euros for three hours) we gained easy access to the venues (no waiting in line) and learned as much or as little as we wanted.

The hotel staff has a little handbook of suggested restaurants to visit. Their breakfast suggestions are not good. As the saying goes, when in Rome... eat a pastry and have at cappucino at a neighbourhood coffee place. American Breakfasts are terrible and we quickly learned not worth the money. We ate at a place called Veccia Roma for dinner. It was delicious. There are lots of little places not far from the hotel that are yummy. Go for dinner around 8:30 p.m. If you see Italians eating there that's a good sign.

The hotel is a Relais property and is known as Internationale Domus. I'm used to 5 star properties and while this didn't have all the modern touches of the Savoy in Florence, it was exactly what I wanted. Tons of charm, very clean and the BEST LOCATION in Rome. I would definitely stay there again.

I booked a superior room at the Relais Pierret for 1 night to visit Rome with my 5 year old daughter this July.

On arrival, we were slightly disappointed to find we'd been 'upgraded' to a suite in the Internazionale Domus, which is located above the Relais Pierret in the same building. I felt the standard of furnishings wasn't as good as that in the Relais Pierret, especially in the common parts. However, I have to admit that this was more than made up for by the amazing view from our window. The Spanish Steps were beautiful when empty in the morning - I've never seen them like that before. I had been concerned about soundproofing on the Steps' side of the building, as I was travelling with a young child, but noise from outside was not a concern at all - the double glazing was very effective.

The only slight problem was noise from other guests returning to their apartments in the evenings - the management really need to encourage people to be considerate when they are in the shared areas of the property, as the wooden floors and high ceilings ensure that other guests will be disturbed by noise. Otherwise, I found reception staff incredibly helpful and the car they organised for me on the final day was fabulous - really a 5 star way to see Rome!

My husbant and I selected this hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed!
Immediatelly after our booking via internet, I received an email from the hotel asking us if we would like to be picked up from the airport...always answer yes to this (I will explain later)!!!!!
Upon our arrival at the hotel the consierge was very kind and helpfull providing us with a map and a list of the best places to eat around Rome.
The hotel is in the heart of Rome, right next to the Spanish Steps, however the rooms are very quiet. The bed was enormous, the pillows soft and fluffy and the bed linen clean and of very good quality. The bathroom was big and spotless, there was always hot water and clean towels. Althoug the hotel does not provide breakfast there are many places around piazza di Spagna where you can eat something, the hotel recomends some of them.
We stayed at the hotel just for one night, however the day of our departure the kept our luggage and allowed us to freshen up in the bathroom before our departure. Excactly at the time agreed our driver was at the hotel to pick us up.
I would recommend to anyone staying in the center of Rome to arrange with the hotel to be picked up from the airport. We decided to take the train not because of the cost but because we thought it would be faster. It was a huge mistake!!! We ended up standing the whole trip fro the airport to termini station packed with other standing travellers some of them not so fond of cleanliness! At the station we got a taxi and from the 1st minute we understood that the Taxi driver would rip us off. For a 10 min drive he demanded 25 Euros and when we gave him a 20 and a 5 euro bills he switched them for two 5 euro bills and pretended that we owe him more!!!!! Old trick !!!
Trust the hotel stuff when they recommend Osteria de la Marguta...AMAZING!!! Try the tortelini with tartufo!

We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon in May 2008. What a great place! The staff was absolutely charming and helpful and the room was terrific. We've booked many rooms on the internet, and this was one of the few hotels in Europe where the picture on the website was the actual room we stayed in. What a nice surprise. The room was spacious, immaculate, and very well appointed. The bathroom was first class, and the soaking tub was a nice feature for our sore feet after the end of a long day of sightseeing in Rome. As far as location, it was perfectly situated within walking distance of all major sites and even though it was right next to the Spanish Steps, the rooms were soundproofed so well that we never heard the crowds that would congregate there in the evenings. We will absolutely stay here again when we return to Rome and want to say a special thank you to Alex for his great recommendations and for ensuring that we had an excellent time! What a beautiful city! Ciao!

We went to Rome and Stayed at the Relais pierret for my 30th birthday and we had a wonderful time.As most of the other reviews say,the front of house staff were extremly helpful,they recommend restaurants and show you on the map where the supermarket is etc.Also we arrived about 2hours early,but they got our room ready and we were in within 15 mins.
The location is execellent right next to the spanish steps a really pretty location.
The room was lovely and clean with nice little touches like slippers and water and juice in the fridge.
The only negative i have is that it is quite noisey in the morning because all the rooms and reception are all on the same floor.
Rome itself was beautiful, but really really HOT.As everything in rome was extremly expensive fill up when ever you can at the water fountins.My top tip would be pre book the collseum on line,it is a little more expensive,but you bypass all the queues,which is a must in the stifling heat!and take plently of money!!!

As far as location goes it's absolutely perfect. Actually next to the Spanish Steps and in the heart of the expensive shopping district, you can walk to nearly all the attractions in Rome from this amazing location. As for the hotel itself... the rooms were lovely and quite spacious for a European hotel, even including the bathroom. The beds were large and oh so comfortable, the airconditioning worked a treat on the hotest of days and the front of house staff were superb, both helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Don't worry that there is no breakfast included in this hotel - you are right in the thick of things so try a new cafe' every day and get a good tast of what Rome has to offer.

We just returned two days ago from a 14 day trip through Italy. Our first stop was Roma with a stay at both the Relais Pierret and their sister hotel Internazional Domus. The building housing both apartment sets are located at 20 Piazza di Spagna which i would consider the 'heart' of the city. The hotel building is directly adjoing the Spanish Steps and is an easy walk to Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and many restaurants. The cab fare to the Vatican, Colesseum, and Borghese Gallery was between 6 and 8 Euros. I could not envirsion a better overall location

Overall I give this hotel very high marks and enjoyed the help provide by Giuliana and staff at the hotel. Since we were five (2 adults and 3 children - ages 9 to 15) we were faced with the typical travel dilema of how to configure sleeping arrangements where most rooms are set up for a double or two doubles.

The first day we stayed. in two separate rooms on the first floor of the building just down from the reception area. Both rooms were comfortable and sized to European standards (small). One issue was this was our first day of travel and the room directly next to the elevator got a little noisy early in the morning but then again with the time change we were sleeping a bit later than we should.

We moved to the Botticeli apartment for day two and three on the third floor of the Internationale Domus. The room was very comfortable and had a balcony overlooking the Spanish Steps which was very very nice. I would give this hotel a very strong positive reccomendation.

couple of other points:

1) Despite the busy streets outside there is no street noise in the rooms. With the AC on you feel very comfortable and it's easy to sleep.

2) the only noise we heard was internal room to room especially in the Botticelli apartment. The front sitting room with a pull out double bed shares a wall with the next apartment. The people staying next door had two small children. Theywere incredbily loud early in the morning and ran around starting at 8 in the morning. Shouting the whole works. This probably could have been managed if the room was occupied by less rude guests.

3) when you walk into the hotel there is nothing for you on the ground floor. Don't be fooled. take the elevator (very small little dumbwaiter, but very functional) to the first floor.

The hotel was fairly priced but expensive like everything in Rome. If your concerned and think maybe you should go with a safe bet and pay the outrageous charges of the Hotel Hassler up the steps, don't.

This is an excellent place to stay, very charming, great location and nice people working there. I would return without hesitation.
