Historical Traveller Reviews of The Duke Hotel

Best Hotel of Vacation

from skirunr
I would go back to Rome again just to stay at the Duke Hotel. Family of four stayed the end of May 2005, with two nice large rooms. The staff alone made our stay worth while and they spoke excellent english. Their guidance and recomondations coupled with the free shuttle bus made traveling in Rome easy. We took a day trip to Assisi (highly recomended), the staff downloaded the train schedule for us, gave me a hotel business card looked me in the eye and told me in case we had any probelms on the road to call them (our Italian was limited). You get more than what you pay for at the Duke. The English National Rugby Team and New Zeland National Soccer team have stayed thier and left signed memorabilia in gratitude to the Duke. By the second day most of the bellman and front dest knew us by sight and warmly greeted us by name. Do not be afraid to tip the staff in reward for their excellent service.

Fab service

from ogradya
Service: The front desk staff at the Duke are amongst the best I have ever come across -helpful, friendly and accomodating at all times. In fact, I'm quite tempted to poach some of them for my own clients who run hotels.

Location: One of the plus points of this hotel is its location in the quiet residential district of Parioli. However, the main drawback to this hotel is its location in the quiet residential district of Parioli. If this is your first trip to Rome or you want to be "in the thick of it", the Duke is not for you. But if you are happy with a short taxi / shuttle bus ride into town, then go for it. Being out of the centre of town also means you can eat where the locals eat and experience more than just the tourist trappings of central Rome.

Rooms: Again, very good (we had a superior double with balcony) and kept in excellent condition. The housekeeping staff were excellent.

Overall, whilst the location can be a slight problem if you're only in town for a few days and need to tick all the sights off your list, this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at.

We miss Rome and the Duke Hotel!!!

from UKTraveler555
We stayed at the Duke from April 22 - 25 2005 and had a lovely time. The staff were friendly and helpful in arranging taxis and in general questions about getting around. Fabrizio the barman was our perfect introduction to Italy just after we arrived at the hotel. After many, many drinks and Fabrizio's delicious snacks from the bar, we ventured into Parioli for an evening meal. We found the shuttle bus very helpful as it lets you off three minutes' walk to the Spanish Steps. Book the evening before or you might have to get a taxi (to the Termini £9, unless there is a subway strike which will cost £30). Our room was immaculate and the balcony was gorgeous. We especially loved the Baci chocolates every evening! We will definitely return to Rome one day and more than likely stay at the Duke.

Excellent Service

from Parched
My wife and four children stayed at the Duke Hotel in Rome for three nights, April 15-17th. The hotel is in a quiet residential neighborhood, ideal for a peaceful night's sleep after hectic days exploring Rome. The service is Excellent; Flavio, Marco, Danielle & Luigi were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They helped arrange taxi service, recommended restaurants and helped us attend a soccer match in the Olympic Stadium. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The breakfast buffet was nice. I will stay at the Duke Hotel again. My family and I stayed at five different four/five star hotels during our Italian holiday, and the Duke Hotel's service was the best. Thanks Duke Hotel!

lacks atmosphere!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the duke for 5 nights. A well maintained hotel with friendly, courteous staff but no atmosphere! The polo lounge was mostly empty each night and although there was piano music, it was very uninviting! The lack of a proper bar ( there is a table in a corner with drinks) doesn't help either. We also had a problem with ants which the hotel put down to us having a balcony! Make the lounge smaller and more inviting and I would go back again!

This was our first trip to rome and all I can say is it was wonderful. The Duke hotel was a real haven of tranquility and the rooms were large and comfortable - the bathroom was all marble and mirrors complete with slippers and fluffy bathrobes!!We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a main easter holiday but this hotel never felt busy or full and the staff went out of their way to help. I have read several comments about the shuttle bus and I have to say we had no problems. We booked each evening for the next days bus - out to rome am and a pick up pm. It arrived promptly every time and even waited for booked guests who turned up 10 mins late. If you want to be in the middle of rome then this is not the place for you to stay but if you like to have some peace after a long hot busy day then it is perfect. Breakfast is also good with fresh squeezed juice in any flavour you can think of and beautiful omlettes all made to order. we will be coming back to this hotel without a doubt.

Disappointed!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
After reviewing this site & recommendations from our Travel Agent we were very excited to experience the Duke Hotel. When we arrived the hotel room given to us was small.
The next morning our bathroom was invested with ants. we complained on our way out to sightsee & was informed we would be moved on our return.

That afternoon on our return the ants were still present, but we were relocated to a even smaller room with no balconey or even a closet. In other words we were downgraded due to the ant problem.

Please note the front desk staff was very nice and apologized, but they couldn't change the room that was assigned to us. All visitors should be aware the Duke is not near any tourist areas & completely in a residental area. If you use the shuttle make sure you have the Front Desk mark your reservation in the book. We arranged to be picked up at their drop off /pickup location in Rome , but had to wait 45 minutes after the scheduled pick up since the front desk person did't mark it in the schedule and we had to make several cell phone calls.
If your the type of person that likes to walk around from your hotel to shop, dine or sightsee don't stay at this hotel due to their remote location.
The food service, bellmen, and the rest of the staff are very nice. Unfortunately, I never heard from any Management staff to apologize on our insect problem.

If you are looking for a 4 * hotel in Rome, you cannot do better than Duke

from rali
Loved the hotel, the room, the cappuccino at breakfast, the only problem was that two nights in a row we waited for the shuttle to take us back to the hotel and it didn't show up. The first night was our fault because we did not reserve it (didn't know we have to) but the second night we did make a reservation and they claimed it was not in the book. So as long as you know to take a taxi back and not rely on the shuttle, you would love this hotel.

The best

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just returned from a four night stay at The Duke Hotel. It is the best hotel that we have ever stayed at. All the hotel staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast first class with a choice to suit all tastes.
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the hotel and champagne and fruit were delivered to our room on arrival.
The city of Rome can be reached by a courtesy shuttle bus, but much nicer is the lovely walk through the park that adjoins the Villa Borghese and which takes about twenty minutes.
We had a very special time on our first visit to Rome, made even more so by the accomodation and the attention to detail of all the staff.

A wonderful hotel

from MNtravels
My husband and spent a week at the Duke and it is the best hotel we have stayed at in Europe. Americans are used to a very different standard in hotels and this hotel met all of our expectations. I would compare the service to any of the luxury hotels chains in the U.S. In fact, the service was better than hotels where we paid 5x the price. The front desk set up dinner reservations for us every night and they did not dissapoint. When we were checking out we heard another couple thanking the desk clerks for the champagne they had sent up as a surprise after they found out the couple was celebrating a birthday.

The fact that the hotel is a bit outside of the center of Rome actually made it more enjoyable. It was quiet and after very exhausting days of touring the city, we were able to go back to the room and recover so we could do it all again the next day.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Make use of the Metro! Buy a three-day Metro ticket and use the life out of it - it is certainly a cost-effective way to get around the city, and beyond.

Barberini Square Across the street from the metro is an almost hidden shop selling 100 % Top quality silk ties and upper end cashmere/silk scarves for 10 euros !!!. Same street has amazing linen shop recommended in Gourmet magazine. To die for ! Be sure to visit the tie shop !

Walking To see Rome you have to walk. Come fit and bring a very comfortable pair of shoes.
