Great location 5 minutes from ColiseumPosted Jan 6, 2018
Fantastic location in the heart of Rome , so great for sightseeing. Hotel was very well presented and although rooms were small were ideal for nature of stay - great choice for weekend break. Staff were very friendly and happy to provide tips on restaurants etc. Highly recommend

Nice compact hotel in a good locationPosted Dec 28, 2017
Pros: Location, everything worked, staff and cleanness.
Cons: Customers could carry their key cards with them (not a big issue).
Location: Railway station, Colosseum, shopping streets, and restaurant in walking distance, and Vatican and the main park also a longer walking distance.
As a whole everything worked in this hotel well. The rooms are small, but bathrooms are good size and in good condition. The breakfast is nice and enough. The staff was very polite and helpful. The location is also good, walking distance from the main railway station and the famous places to see as well as the main shopping streets. There are also many places to eat nearby. The wifi was also fast.

Close locationPosted Dec 27, 2017
We booked a room with a queen bed, instead we received two singles that were squished together covered by one sheets The air conditioning was also broken and the staff never sent anyone to help us fix it. We had to open the window, and it rained all night. One plus side is it's close to the colosseum, but overall the staff did not help us out with any restaurant suggestions or attractions. Please be aware that the hotel changes an extra 26 euro for city tax, which apparently is not charged when you book.

Dear nicole, we are sorry but our profile clearly talks about "double bed" and it is customary in hotels to offer both rooms with one double bed and rooms with single beds pushed together: comfort is undimished. We are sorry for the misunderstanding with the Staff, they are available 24 hours per day and assist much, starting from the check-in and many reviews testify. An important word has to said about the extra charge for the city tax: it is clearly defined "due on the spot, not included in the room rate": it is money any allocations in Rome charge on behalf of the City Administraion, so you do not need to be aware of the Hotel but to read well the "terms and conditions" given in all booking portals including Expedia of course. Regards,

When in Rome.......Posted Dec 20, 2017
I stayed at hotel Duca d’alba with my wife on 12 december for two nights. The hotel was in a great location in walking distance of the colleseum, pantheon and the Trevi Fountain. Shops in walking distance and in a suburb area with great restaurants all around. The hotel staff were really amazing and full of helpful information about the area, they spoke good English which was a bonus given my complete lack of Italian. The hotel was good looking from the outside which stands out against the others in the area, staff waiting to take your bags to your room. Third floor room with a lift to get their, quiet and really nice bathroom with a shower. All very very clean and modern. Can’t rate this hotel high enough and is on my list to stay at again when I visit Rome in the near future.

A real gem of a hotel.Posted Dec 17, 2017
Pros: The friendliness of the staff, and fittings/cleanliness of the rooms.
Cons: We went in December and guidance on the relationship between aircon and heating could have been included in the room guide.
Location: A massive range of food, drink and shopping nearby. Most of Rome tourist attractions up to 15 minutes walk away.
Stayed with my wife for a wedding anniversary city break in Rome. Trusting the other recommendations, I took the plunge. I was not disappointed, and neither will you be. Location The Duca d'Alba is 5 minutes walk from the Coliseum, Forum and Victor Emmanuel II monument in one direction, and San Maria Maggiore in the other. There is a metro station 2 minutes walk away and most attractions (Vatican aside) can be reached, on foot, within minutes. There is a range of restaurants, shops and cafes nearby. Room Some other reviewers have said that the rooms are small; they're certainly not massive, but having stayed in similar hotels across Europe they are not unusually cramped. What they are is immaculate, well maintained and secure. The Annex, where we stayed, has two secure points before the room doors. The décor is smart, and a neat blend of modern (bedding, lighting etc) and traditional (wooden beamed ceilings). Staff To me the hotel's key asset from Angelo, the wonderfully welcoming manager, down to the cleaning staff. They really "went the extra mile" and knew more than the tourist information points! Every question/request was met by the team with kindness. Conclusion A star hotel - if this is where you/want need to be in Rome, the go for it, if what you're after is somewhere clean and smart to rest you head between seeing the sights. If you want to stay endlessly in your room, then this is probably not for you. But, it's Rome - why would you?

A nice, quiet hotel, close to the Colosseum and the Fori Imperiali. Helpful staff and concierge. Afternoon tea availability in breakfast room made up for the lack of it in the room. Would stay again and recommend.

Excellent location, lovely staffPosted Dec 5, 2017
Pros: Staff, location
Cons: PossiBly breakfast. Slightly more option would be nice but saying that it is in keeping with the smaller hotel.
Location: Excellent. Lots of food, history souvenir shops, and we came across the funkiest late night indoor market
I would 100% stay at this hotel again and would recommend to a friend. The colosseum is down the end of the road,yet the hotel is on the cutest cobbled back street. The streets surrounding are full of little food delights and buzzing cafes/restaurants. The staff couldn’t do enough for us, every single on we met was so lovely and great with our baby. Was really made to feel comfortable and like we could ask for anything. Very helpful with heating baby bottles late at night and lending us a plug adapter free of charge.
