Nice Hotel NOT NEAR Villa D'EstePosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
There is much to lead one to think that staying here is a short walk to the Villa. It is many KM away. Nevertheless, the staff was terrific and the restaurant served us a very nice dinner -- once we found it. I would suggest more information on where it is and how to get there.

Best location and value! A gem to find!Posted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is a gem. Location is superb, It is 5 to 15 minute walk to most attractions. Hotel staff speaks fluent english and has been super helpful with suggestions and information from dinner to attractions to see and how to get there, making it an easy stay. The hotel is located in a 500 year old building on the same square as the Pantheon with an amazing view onto the square below. Breakfast is served in the courtyard on the first floor, and is of the highest quality!

Good Hotel for OvernightPosted May 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
My cousin and I stayed here overnight before a day trip to Tivoli and Hadrian's Villa. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived late, so we did not have dinner at the hotel. Breakfast was great with lots of options for fruit, breads, meat & cheese, and pastries. The surrounding area isn't all that exciting, but we had a car so there was no need to walk anywhere local. Parking was easy in their lot. I can certainly see this as more of a 'business hotel' than a memorable place to stay.

Excellent accommodation around 10kms from TivoliPosted Jun 7, 2012
Hotel was very large and caters mainly for large conferences as well as others. Reception staff rather off-hand but waiter in restaurant for dinner excellent. The location of the hotel though is quite a distance from the main tourist attractions of Tivoli and you would need a car to get there. Nothing much around the hotel of tourist value and generally shabby and uncared for. Rooms were lovely though and it was very good value for an overnight stay.

Duca d'EstePosted Oct 14, 2011 on Hotels.com
What a delight. Convenient to Villa Adriana and fairly near to Tivoli, the hotel was easy to find and had good parking. This was a genuine 4-star experience. In Rome, we had just come from Hotel Giada which claimed 3-stars but weren't even remotely close to the Hotel Duca d'Este. Breakfast was good and service was impeccable. Unfortunately NOT convenient for those exploring Rome.

Our hotel smelled of intense odor of the sulfur from the baths for several hour. My husband had problems sleeping because of this odor, The hotel location made it the only place to eat and although the food was not bad it had no real taste.

Grand hotel Duca E'Este - Worst hotel EVER.Posted May 24, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel has got to be the worst hotel I've ever been to. The carpets were disintegrating and in the corners there were MASSIVE dust bunnies. The bed sheets were stained, and the wall paper was black in areas and hanging off the walls. The bathroom was so filthy and looked like it had never been cleaned as there were dried soap suds over the shower. It was so bad we had to walk out even though we had already paid. The pictures they use to advertise are either very old or very well photo shopped. Trust me when I say do not stay at this hotel, even just for hygiene reasons.
