We stayed at the hotel last year,service and staff were great. We had a room over looking the Barberini fountain,room was not over large but very clean with a good sized bathroom. The breakfast at the hotel was great with plenty of choice. We are going to Rome again in April and have book the Barocco. Location is spot on.
Not what we expected

Warm bright foyer but very small room. All TV programmes inItalian. No heat in bathroom and when requested we were told-'Oh no theres no radiators working. We are servicing the system' (In December??)When questioned he then continued 'but you have plenty of heat in the bedroom.You can leave the door open !!!!'Breakfast was excellent and the staff cheerful.No drawers for clothes and only 5 hangers. When we got soaked through in a rainstorm I asked if we could put our coats somewhere to dry but this was refused. There was no heat in the bedroomas it is turned off during the day so we dried coats with the hairdrier. Not what we expected from a four star hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Barocco Hotel

Good Hotel, great location

from Tammy0927
Luckily, this was the first hotel we stayed in during our two week trip to Italy. If it were the last hotel of our trip, I definitely would have been disappointed. However, we weren't in the market to pay for a fantastic hotel in Rome since we figured (correctly) that we would spend little time in the hotel anyway. Overall, the location is awesome. We walked most places and there was a taxi station right next to the hotel for farther destinations. The staff was incredible nice and professional during our two night stay. The room was clean, but I definitely wasn't prepared for how tiny it was---especially the shower. Thank goodness, I'm not overweight. Otherwise, I don't know how you could possibly fit into the shower. We did have little ants in our room. After telling the front desk on our first day, we didn't notice any for the rest of our stay. This is a great hotel for tourists who are going to be out exploring Rome. For 149 Euros a night, I think we got a great deal.

Excellent value in the Heart of Rome

from jwimpole
We are well travelled and have been many times to Rome but this is the first time we use the Hotel Barocco and were most impressed. In particular we found the hotel to have three strong points: (1) the rooms - very comfortable, elegant and well presented upon arrival. We were placed in a jr suite overlooking the beautiful Piazza Barberini. (2) The breakfast is excellent with many home made cakes and just small touches which are unusual of a city hotel. (3) The receptionists are friendly, very helpful and professional. We generall felt pampered and very well looked after. We could not find a fault in this little boutique hotel in the heart of Rome. Bravo - to the management!! We will definitely return and hope this tip may be of help to other discerning travellers.

Cozy hotel in good location

from holjer
Me and my wife stayed at the Barocco for three nights between aug 18th and 21st. It was our first ever trip to Rome and we choose the hotel based on some good reviews that I had read. We were not dissappointed. August is the big holiday month for the Romanesi so in the streets you saw mostly tourists and about 50% of the smaller shops and restaurants were closed. Even so, there was plenty of good places to shop, eat etc. All the attractions and sights were open and available.
Arriving with the metro at Piazza Barberini we crossed the square and located the entrance on a small sidestreet. The hotel is in a good location, the nearest attraction is the Spanish Steps where you will walk in 5 minutes. You’ll be another 5-10 minutes from what we found to be “the center” of Rome, Campo de Fiori and Piazza Navona.
The lobby is rather small with a sitting area with couches and informational material. The reception staff were very polite, efficient and helpful when we asked for directions and advice on where to find an open market etc. The staff spoke very good english. One day when it was raining slightly, we found plenty of umbrellas for the guests to borrow. There is a small elevator that will only fit 2, maximum 3 adults. I suppose since the hotel in located in an old building there are some rather narrow and winding corridors in addition to some “semi-floors” that may pose a small problem to people with disabilities. The lobby and common areas were always very clean and tidy.
Our room, a double, was on the 4th floor. There was a small room where you entered with a luggage rack and a desk. The bedroom was not very large but nicely decorated and with a queen-size bed with good comfort. Housekeeping was very good. There was a closet with plenty of room for hanging clothes and a medium-sized safe with electronic code lock (no extra charge). There were to air-conditioning machines, one in the bedroom and one near the entrance. They were quite quiet and efficient and could be turned down at night not to make too much noise.
The bathroom was large and well lit (I find bad lighting is often a problem in hotel baths). There was a bathtub/jacuzzi with massage-jets in working condition that would fit 2 persons. There was also a shower cabinet with massage-function. The water pressure was good and there was plenty of hot water.
The breakfast was served on the ground floor. It was a buffet that I found better than most other hotel breakfast I’ve had in southern Europe. Waiters would take your order for coffe, tea or cappuchino (good!). When my wife wanted boiled egg (not in the buffet) it was not a problem. The buffet consisted of rolls, cold meats of good quality (nice ham), cheeses, spreads and jams, scrambled eggs and bacon (which didn’t look very crisp). There was also youghurts, muesli and cornflakes. There was a selection of croissants and fresh cakes/apple pie etc.
To summarize, we were very happy and content with our stay at the Barocco. Good location, clean and nicely decorated rooms, good staff, good breakfast. Good starting point for exploring Rome on foot or by bus/metro. You can tell that the hotel has been built in an old building which makes for narrow hallways and rooms with slightly unpractical lay-out.

Great hotel

from pennyN
We spent two nights at Hotel Barocco at the end of July. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were great. The only trick is actually finding it. If you are looking at Barberini's statue in the piazza, the hotel is in line with the statue's right arm, down a tiny street. It is very centrally located - a 5 minute walk to the Spanish steps and to the Trevi fountain, and a short cab ride to the Vatican.

Very nice boutique hotel

from YankeeFanatic
A wonderful alternative to the much more expensive luxury hotels in Rome. The service is excellent and very personal. The rooms are clean, well-furnished and without cigarette odor. The a/c was worked very well. The location is great...within walking distance of most major sites and on a beautiful piazza. Even those looking for luxury will not be disappointed here.

Brilliant Barocco

from NickandHarriet
We stayed 3 nights at the Barocco - in the adjoining residence, not the main hotel. Delightful is an understatement. When we go back to Rome, we won't even bother to look for alternative accommodations. Barocco is the only place to consider. Rooms were superb and very well tended. Very nice breakfast in delightful surroundings. Exquisite furnishings, paintings and decor. Even daily flowers and fruit plates. Bathroom service twice daily. The details have all been thought of for the choosy and easily-disappointed traveler like myself. Very helpful staff - all of them. Superb location - moments from everything in the old City, as well as a few meters from the Metro, taxi rank, restaurants, convenience stores and so on and so on. If you can pay the asking price, you won't be disappointed.

The best hotel in Rome!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Hotel Baracco (****), by Piazzia Barberini, during our trip to Rome - 5 days, 4 nights (during the Pope's funeral). Great staff, nice people! Offered great tips on sites to see, restaurants, etc. Have a wonderful jacquzi tub in rooms - which is wonderful after a day of site seeing. Located a few blocks from spanish steps and trevi fountain, and around the corner from Via Veneto avenue. Great location to all. Highly recommend to all. - SL


from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Barocco for Easter weekend and I really did not want to leave!! The positioning of the hotel is such that you are not more than 5 minutes walk to most sites. It is deceving from the outside but the service was outstanding from booking restaurants, transfers to airport and directions the hotel staff were impecable! The rooms were something else we had a classic double roome which consisted of a balcony over looking the fountain outside and a jacuzzi bath, mini bar and everything else you would expect. I will certainly be visiting again!!!!!!!

Very pleased with the Barocco

from errant
Thanks to Trip Advisor, we decided to stay at the Hotel Barocco for five nights in March. What a great decision! We stayed in #49 which was large enough for two adults and a child. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Balcony looking over Plaza Barbarini. A wall of windows were thick enough to keep out busy traffic noise. Great bathroom -- shower with multiple jets; jacuzzi. Good toiletries including toothbrushes and toothpaste. Robes for two of us. The buffet breakfast was bountiful and had a great variety of food -- scrambled eggs, Italian bacon, a variety of cold cuts and cheeses, cakes, croissants, yogurts, cereals and the best blood orange juice I've ever had. The staff was discreet and relatively helpful -- just don't rely on them for dinner recommendations -- they'll steer you to tourist traps.

Five minutes from Trevi (fast walk) and close to the Spanish Steps. Right on the Metro line. We'd definitely stay there again!

High standards of service from professional and friendly staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
Three of us have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Hotel Barocco. It was excellent in every respect - small, elegant, stylish yet understated. Having requested 3 single rooms we were pleasantly surprised on arrival to find that we had very thoughtfully been upgraded to a large single, a twin and a double room. The rooms were located next to one another on the same floor, giving us more or less exclusive use of the floor. All staff were warm without being obtrusive. The English speaking receptionists were incredibly friendly and helpful. They called taxis for us, reserved restaurants, and arranged for a car to take us to the airport. The buffet breakfast was delicious, generous and beautifully presented. Rooms were immaculately clean and housekeeping was excellent. The location is superb. All the major sites and shopping streets are within easy walking distance. For weary legs, the 110 open top bus can be caught round the corner on Via Vanetto and there is a taxi rank and metro station in the Piazza Barberina. We dined in some of the excellent Tuscan restaurants just off the Piazza - all within easy walking distance. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are already planning our return visit to the Hotel Barocco!

Top Local Tips for Rome

cheap eating cheak out the side alleys and back streets the food is still the same standerd as the more expensive ones maybe even better to be honest we tryed a few from the higher to the lower and we found the latter better

Best Local restaurants - Rampa If staying anywhere near the Spanish steps area you must eat at Alla Rampa restaurant. This is about 100 metres from the bottom of the Spanish Steps. At the bottom as you (go down) turn left. The first square you come to on your left is where the Rampa is located. Tucked away in the top left hand corner (not the restaurant next to it which is called the Leonardo). It's a huge restaurant with outdoor seating and is always busy. We've never booked but always get in even if you need to wait for 5 minutes. Have eaten in about 10 recommeded places in Rome and I leep going back to the Rampa. The food is absolutely brilliant and costs no more than any other place. Go there or you'll miss out!

Taxi from Ciampino Be very careful about the price of the official taxi from Ciampino to Rome. The guide books suggest that a set price of 30-40 Euros is in operation but this isn't always the case. Some will try to fleece you. Agree the price before you load your bags and set off.
