Historical Traveller Reviews of Sofitel Roma Hotel
Overall Good Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
In regard to tours, I recommend that some attractions are better to see it yourself and just rent one of those museums hearing devices. Although the group tours were more convenient and the guides were nice and insightful, going to some of the attractions (Vacatican and Coliseum, I think are better to do it on your own and cost effective). If you have group party another good option would be to hire a private car with driver to take you to all the sites.
Great servicefrom Sammyc
Elegant Hotelfrom phillie64
Classy hotel overlooking Villa Borghasefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Sofitel Roma given the relative price range is a good choice.
There is excellent foot and metro access to Roman interests. The room is large by European standards and impeccably clean. Beautiful bathroom.
Can't see staying at the Hassler at those prices above a bunch of drunks on the Spanish Steps. Anyway, for reaching the Spanish Steps Area it's an easy walk, including a route throuugh Spagna Station if it's raining.
Breakfast room is classy but no fresh fruit.
Some of the staff are extremely friendly and helpfull, something you cannot say for a lot of Italian/European hotels. Friendliness seems to go up with the price of the hotel but then the stufiness can kick in. Sofitel Roma has a good balance. A very nice if somewhat pricey stay. But if you want to stay in a Rome hotel with such amenities, etc. it comprises good value.
Excellent for Solo Travelers - Safe location, Beautiful and Close to attractionsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
They also have tons of umbrellas for you if it rains. If you need anything ironed, there is someone available to do it for you for a fee ($6 a shirt), but they will not let you borrow an iron for personal use, which is really my only disappointment. Breakfast was simple: fruits, cheeses, meat, yogurt, cereals, pastries, eggs and juice, but it was quite satisfying.
Again, this is a perfect hotel and I would choose it over any 5 star down the road.
Star qualityfrom kevin079
the decor and service was second to none .The staff were very friendly and more than helpful,we would all highly reccomend this hotel to all.
clean with very good servicefrom TwoHavlesofCoconuts
The room was small and the bed old (typical for Europe), but the room was clean.
The breakfast was not very good. The fair was typical European, sausages, cheeses, breads, watery scrambled eggs, cereals and sad looking fruit. If it were not included in the package I would not have had it their.
I found the hotel to be equivelant to a low to mid-range 4-star hotel in the U.S.
A big advantage is that the hotel is on a quite street. Rome is so loud that is was a nice escape. It is about a 10 minute walk to the Spanish steps/shopping and about a 30min walk to the Coliseum. It's a longer hike to the Vatican (too far for most people to walk).
A Beautiful Place to Stayfrom Claudia_from_Chicago
Excellent Locationfrom Hed79
Not only was it much closer to most of Rome's attractions, but the rooms were decorated lavishly and the service was great.
No complaints whatsoever!
A small piece of paradise in Romefrom melita1
Rooms are spotlessly clean and staff cannot do enough do be of assistance.
Hard to believe that this hotel hasn't received the five stars it more than deserves.
A tip: Take the hotel lift to the 7th floor and you get a breathtaking view of Rome (especially at night) from the hotel roof terrace.
Top Local Tips for Rome
Eating in Rome We ate in a different restaurant each night and although the food was good and the service adequateI would not recommend Rome as a great city for dining.
Vatican Go to the Vatican on a Sunday morning around 11.30 am and wait to see the Pope at noon. A very special experience.
Hot summer months I would not recommend going to Italy in June, July or August if you're planning on doing a lot of sightseeing because the heat is almost unbearable. If you're plan is to see a little, walk a little, shop a little, stay inside and be pampered than any time during the year should be fine. WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!!!!! Lots of uneven pavement and cobblestones so forget about looking totally cute and go for comfort.
