Excellent location, lovely hotel, wonderful people
Posted Sep 29, 2014
We stayed at Relais Group Palace hotel for 4 nights. We scored! Amazing location in the middle of a Roman neighborhood and devoid of some of the flocks of tourists in Rome. There are at least 50 restaurants within a 15 minute walk - we had excellent food every night. This hotel is 7 minutes to Vatican on foot, and maybe 8 minutes to Piaza di Fiori and its daily fresh market. The hotel itself is very small (7 rooms), quiet, and wonderfully historic - so a pleasant and intimate place to stay. From the circular elevator which accommodates just 3 people, to the wood shuttered windows, wooden ceilings, marble bathrooms....all just lovely. This hotel would suit those who want to experience Rome, not those looking for a chain hotel and all the American comforts. We particularly appreciated Bashir who served as doorman, concierge, breakfast maker, housekeeper, and man-who-makes-your-stay-perfect, and Madame (also an owner) at the front desk, who was fluent in English and Italian, and so helpful in providing us with sites, directions, and always a smile.
Thank you Relais Group Palace for an excellent stay in Rome.
