The quality of a hotel is not just about amenities or location. For me, one of the greatest attributes of a hotel are the staff. The Splendid has lovely rooms and an excellent restaurant with stunning views which I also highly recommend. But I write this review with an aim to commend Jonathan, the hotel’s senior concierge. He is exceptional. In the many months between my booking and our visit I had many questions and needed a lot of information. All this takes time. He was always prompt in responding, answered every question, resolved every issue. Pleasant and polite as could be. If you want a beautiful hotel with a fantastic location, gorgeous restaurant and spectacular service, The Splendid Royal is the place to be.
My wife and I stayed for 11 nights in October 2020 and we can honestly say that this was our best ever experience in a hotel. The staff were absolutely wonderful and treated us like royalty. The hotel is amazing, the restaurant on the top floor with views of Vatican City serves top quality food and wines, the staff were lovely. The location is excellent, just a 5 minute walk to Spanish Steps and tube, 20 minutes to the Trevi Fountain, however the hotel is in a quiet location. Our room, with a superb bed and spacious bathroom with a bath provided a luxurious haven after a busy day of sight seeing. We recommend 30min day trips by rail to Ostia and Trevi. What a truly "splendide" stay... Grazie mille !!
Highly recommend this hotel. Very friendly and efficient staff offering excellent service throughout, from serving staff at breakfast to concierge and porter. Lovely room, and stunning terrace with excellent views. Breakfast was excellent. WiFi allowed me to videoconference reliably. And great location, in easy walking distance of the Spanish Steps, Pincio, and the park around Villa Medici. Spotlessly clean, and we felt very covid-safe throughout.
From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been better at this hotel. Very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The room on the third floor was massive and very nicely decorated and we had a great view over the park. The hotel is in a great location just 5 mins from the Spanish steps. The breakfast is one of the best I have ever had at a 5 star hotel. Firstly the view from the restaurant is breathtaking and sitting there eating your breakfast outside overlooking the whole of Rome was amazing. Secondly the service was outstanding. Thirdly the food was delicious. I will definitely return to this hotel the next time I am back in Rome
As a main entrance point in and out of Italy, for me, staying in Rome is a balance of finding somewhere relaxing enough for me to unwind and get over my jet lag, as well as finding a traditional fit that really gets me excited to explore the history and beauty of this city. Hotel Splendide Royal ticks all these boxes! A 5 star hotel that was once a 19th Century palace, the property is classically styled in Rococo or late baroque. This is classic Rome inspired by the red, blue and yellow colourings of the Vatican Guard, with generous sized rooms elegantly furnished with plush fabrics, French furniture and marble bathrooms. The rooms are always clean and well maintained, as well as being spacious and luxurious, as you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Two of the great features of the hotel are the breakfast room and restaurant on the 6th and 7th floors, which both have stunning views from the outdoor patio overlooking the spectacular Borghese Gardens and across Rome – one of the best you can get. The 7th floor Mirabelle Restaurant also has a private dining room housed in its cellar – a must do if you are with a group! The staff here are also very helpful, with nothing being too much of a problem for them. They really do go above and beyond to make you feel at home and also have some great restaurant recommendations. It’s an easy walking distance to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Villa Borghese, Via Veneto (about 10min to each) and a reasonable distance from all the other Rome attractions and the central train station. You will have to use the train if you want to go to other attractions further out such as the Colosseum, Vatican and Trastevere. Another quick tip on it’s great location… with Rome being extremely hot in the summer, this property is a nice escape as its proximity to the park and the large shaded trees gives you a nice escape from the blazing sun! If you’re looking for a value for money 5 star property in a beautiful traditional style, then Hotel Splendide Royal is perfect for you!…
