Historical Traveller Reviews of Marriott Grand Hotel Flora
Loved the Grand Florafrom matthewtor
Wonderful servicefrom JAX
First Class Hotel and Service - great Concierge (Max)from pwrshift
They have a switch in each room to plug north american electrics in - we took a travel water boiler so we could have coffee!! TV is a problem - the only English channels are CNN, BBC and some sports...next time I'd take my portable DVD player and a bunch of movies to watch in off touring time.
Location was fun, with restaurants everywhere you turn including Harry's Bar across the street, and a great breakfast place a 3 minute walk left from Flora's front door...we had great pasta there too at lunch one afternoon. An Argentinian boulevard dining room across the street was great food - the entrecote sirloin a real treat. Andrea restaurant around the corner 5 minutes walk had great food - the osso bucco was best ever! Shopping in the area is expensive -- you can buy for less at home. Dining isn't cheap either, but the food is outstanding everywhere. The Westin is 2 short blocks down the road too and they have a great dining room. Hotel picked me up at the airport for 75euros - you could probably do better than that if you take a chance, but the charge goes on your hotel bill and you get points for it.
Concierge arranged a city private limo tour with a driver called Roberto (Palazzi ph. 333-2276501) and in 4 hours (123 euros - more points) he took us everywhere and had passes to get his Mercedes (and us) into everyplace including past police barricades at the Vatican where only people were allowed - amazing. Also took us to the top of a hill to have the greatest overlook of the Ancient City. We covered a lot of distance in just 4 hours and it was a great investment in getting oriented to a new city - Roberto spoke pretty good English too! firstname.lastname@example.org
We went to Sorrento after this for a few days and got an Amalfi driver to pick us up at the Flora in Rome and drive us there for 400 euros, then a 4 hour Amalfi coast tour one day for 200 euros, and a couple of days later he drove us to Florence for 500 euros -- surprisingly it wasn't that much more than trains, city taxis fares so you might consider it too - not having to lug bags around train stations was a real treat! Hey, you only live once right? For this venture, be sure to ask ony for Salvatore Lucibello as your driver personally at DriveAmalfi Ph. 335-5293647 or email@example.com
All in all, we had a great Italian holiday and to start it off on the right foot the Marriott Grand Hotel Flora was the best.
A Gemfrom jackiNorthEngland
Excellent but priceyfrom epluribusunum
Check in went smooth and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, they were quick enough to find us a transport to the Vatican and then to the airport allowing all five of us to ride the same vehicle (keep in mind that it ain't easy to run a hotel when is fully booked in a period when the death of the Pope had catalyzed 4 milions plus pilgrims in Rome, but they did a great job pleasing everybody and working under a great pressure). The property looks fresh and new, our room was well-appointed and comfortable; my only complains are about air conditioning's efficiency and the noise coming from via Veneto (one of Rome's busiest streets); staying on the 4th floor wasn’t enough because the room wasn't properly insulated from the outside noise, if you foresee a longer stay try to ask for a quite room.
This hotel is a bit pricey but as in other metropolis if you want a decent, clean and safe stay you must pay for it (and in the case of Rome you must pay a lot).
two couples loved it!from bondnstk
The staff was the most helpful I have found at any hotel. The rooms were very nice and clean and the decoration very tasteful. The size of the room was on the smaller size but so are most urban hotels.
Had a Fantastic Stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Overall, our stay was great, we asked the kitchen staff a couple of times to refill the baby's milk, no problem. The second night we went up to the resturant on the 7th floor overlooking the city and had romantic 5 course meal including wine and champagne for Valentines day, complete with chocolate and flowers. The wait staff was really laid back, they were fine with us bringing up our sleeping baby in stroller, they were really cool about it, or just wanted our money! :) Room and bathroom were perfect, windows opened on second floor overlooking Via Venata...
Ask them where to go to Mass, we did nearby on Sunday evening after we arrived, the "everday" churches are absolutely beautiful in Italy. Would definately stay again if in Rome... those were the best two nights of our trip, it went downhill from there... just read my review on the Jolly Hotel Villenova in Bologna.... :(
Beautiful, elegant Loved it.from A TripAdvisor Member
Nice Hotelfrom Expat_Ozi
As mentioned in past reviews, breakfast is pricey (E24pp) but you have to expect to pay that in a good hotel. I used the hotel car from the airport which was a mercedes for E75 but I think that's a little steep (considering our next hotel - The Intercontinental - charged us E49 from the hotel to the airport).
IMO, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone - the location is great right at the top of the Via Veneto so it's about a 10 minute walk to the nearest Metro station and has some great cafe's and restaurants right out front.
Top Local Tips for Rome
Use the Metro and buy a 1 day pass or weekly pass By purchasing the one day or weekly pass for the metro you can get close to most sights and you don't have to validate you ticket as much as a 75 minute tickets because the tickets cover you for more time.
Sight Seeing and Shopping We spent a few extra dollars for a personal tour guide and definitely believe that this is the way to go. We booked her for one day and had the opportunity to not only see the main attractions of Rome (i.e. Colosseum, Forum, Vatican) but also the small nooks and crannies that were off the beaten path. Also, go to Rome with some extra money to spend on designer clothes and leather if that sort of thing excites you.
Train from the Airport to downtown railroad station (Termini) From the airport, there is excellent non-stop train service every half hour to the Termini in the heart of Rome for 11 Euros (approx $14) each way. It takes about 35 minutes, avoiding a costly taxi and traffic jams. It is a wonderful service if you don't have too much baggage, as from the airport arrivals area one must descend and ascend several escalators to reach the station. Furthermore, the train platform is not "high level", meaning one must lift suitcases into the train.
