Beautiful small hotel on a quite chic area of Rome

Posted Jul 9, 2017
Everything was very satisfactory: the location, the room with a very comfortable bed, mattress and pillows, air conditioning, great shower, delicious breakfast in a lovely ambiance and fantastic staff. You need to buy the one, two or seven day unlimited bus and metro pass at the giornal kiosk next to Piazza Muse. Bus 360 with a stop in front of the hotel or Piazza Muse takes you to Termini Train Station and the Metro saving you a lot of money on taxis. Trams 19 and 3 - a seven-minute walk from the hotel-- take you to a lot of important sites. If you are a good walker you can cross the park of Villa Borghesse in approx. 25 minutes and find yourself at the Pincho above the Spanish steps. If you prefer taxi the reception staff woll call it for you and the cost will be between 10 and 20 Euros depending on your destination and time of the day. There are two pizza places -one behind the hotel with delivery service if you wish and one towards piazza Ungheria -with good pizza al taglio and other Italian simple but tasty food. Perfect places if you are tired or do not feel to spend lots of money. There are many good restaurants on Parioli street ranging from reasonable to high prices if you choose to stay in the neighborhood. The ice cream/gelato at the bar behind the hotel is excellent. Kudos to the staff of the hotel, particularly Eleonora and Giulia, who are very nice and helpful. Great stay!

Lovely hotel in a quiet Rome suburb

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Unlikely you'll get somewhere this nice in the very centre for the price. And it was quite nice being slightly out of the centre. Easy enough getting the bus / taxis in and out. And only a 45 min walk to the centre through the pleasant Borgese gardens (and you can stop off for a 20 min lounge on the boating lake). Fairly small hotel, but lovely and quiet, v.tastefully decorated with nice grounds - and in a nice neighbourhood. Plenty of nice, non-touristy restaurants in walking distance - Ambasciata di Abruzzo was fantastic.

Great stay at a nice hotel.

Posted May 21, 2017
Pros: Private garden; fresh breakfast; good location.
Located at a quiet residential neighborhood. Good restaurants were walking distance. The staff were friendly. The nice gal that checked us in gave us a room with a private garden; that's a plus. Breakfast from 7:30-10:30 am had fresh everything. The only negative was the being charged $8 for a cup of cappuccino when restaurants only charged $2-4. Nevertheless, it was a nice experience for us in this hotel.

Compact and Neat Hotel

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: Clean, quiet and good communication.
Cons: Pillows? Mine were a little thin but 3 did the trick.
Location: Muse is nearby and a short walk (0.5m) to a good street of restaurants, as directed by the hotel staff. Easy bus to Rome centre which takes 20mins
Not the nearest to the sights but the staff are excellent and the transport links are good with a bus stop very nearby. Hotel room was very clean and a very good size.

Fabulous hotel

Posted Apr 18, 2017
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable beds and bedding . Great buffet breakfast
We loved this hotel. We found the rooms to be very clean and elegant . The beds were so comfortable and we both slept really well. The staff are wonderful and so helpful. Hotel Duse is in a residential area which makes for a calm and relaxing atmosphere after the hustle and bustle of Rome. We enjoyed the walk after breakfast through the park which took us down to the Spanish steps. Although you can catch the bus if you prefer . I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. We will definitely be returning.

A beautiful oasis of quiet

Posted Mar 28, 2017 on Hotels
This little jewel in the northern part of the city provides a quiet oasis before heading out to sight see. There is no metro stop, but there are buses. The rooms is charming, and comfortable. Breakfast is really lovely and they have especially good coffee. The staff were helpful and absolutely wonderful.

Small quiet hotel with lovely staff! It's a bit away from the centre but there is bus 360 just around the corner going every 10-20 minutes to Roma Termini (15-20 min ride) and you can buy bus tickets at the reception.

Great hotel for visiting Rome

Posted Feb 22, 2017
Excellent hotel about 40 mins walk from centre of Rome. Staff are execellent and very helpful when working out itineries or where to eat at night, even arranging private transfers. Just email the hotel and they will make the necessary arrangements prior to your arrival.
