Luxury Hotel

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: Very beautiful. Incredibly comfortable bed. Temperature of room was perfect. Large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. Very friendly staff. Terrific food.
Cons: Honestly, I cannot think of one thing!
Location: The hotel is near the Spanish steps yet in a quiet area. Close to many cafes/restaurants/shops.
We had a wonderfully relaxing hotel stay for 4 days. This hotel is beautifully well maintained and luxurious. Our room (522) was incredibly clean, the bed unbelievably comfortable with a large sized bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. The breakfast room was beautiful with a large variety of food to choose from. The hotel staff were so nice and helpful. We will return to the Hotel Splendide Royal!

Very unfriendly environment

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: The hotel itself it beautiful. The rooms are very nice and the lobby is nice. It is also very close to the Trevi fountain and the Spanish steps.
Cons: The attitudes of the employees need to be improved. There was a vast difference in how some of the guests were treated as opposed to others.
Location: Trevi fountain and Spanish steps are walking distance. The rest of the attractions are about a 10 euro taxi ride which is not bad at all.
We stayed at this hotel for the last leg of our honeymoon. They did provide us a complimentary room upgrade but that was where the niceness ended. Firstly, we did not having a working television. We called the first night and it wasn't until the third day that they came to fix it. The men spent about four hours in our room until we eventually kicked them out. There was no apology for this and I don't understand why something like this would not have been looked after ahead of someone staying in that room. Next most of the staff were very unfriendly. The morning buffet was fantastic but some of the staff in the restaurant area were extremely unfriendly. The main lady that leads you to your table would not even say goodbye to us when we left. We felt continuously judged and the environment was not very comfortable. We felt like we were being judged as low-class and as a result were treated that way.

Luxurious and comfortable

Posted Oct 13, 2014
A very comfortable hotel in a good location. Beds are possibly the best I've ever slept in. Room immaculately maintained. Only criticism is that some of the staff was stiff and only begrudgingly helpful.

nearly perfec

Posted Sep 25, 2014
Pros: Decor, service, comfort, food, location
Cons: AC system
Location: lots of things, near to good restaurants in via veneto and piazza barberini, 10 minutes walk to spanish steps and via del corso, and in front of park
Everything pleasing, location (in front of pines of Villa Borghese park, near to via veneto and spanish steps), confort, cleanliness, nice seating at mirabelle restaurant on the 7th floor, excellent breakfast, food and room service. A small minus was the AC, not working properly, as the internal control does not move, keeping the room at 24 degrees, not exactly pleasant given humidity in Rome. After 3 appeals, they sent someone who fixed it and reduced the temperature to 22 degrees on the last night.

Comfortable and Well-located

Posted Sep 10, 2014
A clean and comfortable oasis within easy striking walking distance of all points of interest and shopping that cluster around the Spanish Steps. Plenty of accessible public parking available nearby and easy to get to without violating any of Central Romes restricted traffic zones. This hotel will remain high on our list for future visits.

2 days stopover in Rome

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Fantastic traditional hotel in ideal area within steps of Spagna, Borghese gardens, Via Veneto. I had booked a suite with terrace and received a complimentary upgraded to a larger junior suite with huge terrace. The room was clean, traditional, and spacious. The staff was superb. The hotel is very private without a large lobby or sitting area on traditional European style. I had also used the spa and gym facilities at the sister Parco Principale for free which is an amazing serene spa oasis in the center of Rome.

Wonderful old style hotel, located in the Villa Borghese area.
