Bottom Line

The Parco Dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa is located in the Parioli district near the beautiful Villa Borghese park (but far from most tourist sights). The grand, opulent lobby has plush seating, chandeliers, and lovely artwork. Rooms are traditional in style with crisp white bedding and updated amenities. Marble bathrooms are finished with crown molding and jetted shower/tub combos. Many rooms also include a private terrace with great views of the Villa Borghese park. Hotel features include an outdoor courtyard garden with big heated pool and the Prince Spa, complete with indoor pool and steam room. There are many restaurants and cafes within a 10-minute walk, but the on-site restaurant and Bar La Pomme are also convenient dining and drink choices.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Close to Villa Borghese park and Bioparco (zoo) in the Parioli district

Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa is located in the quiet and residential Parioli district, outside the city center. It is very near the beautiful Villa Borghese park and Bioparco (zoo).

Parioli is one of Rome's wealthiest residential neighborhoods, located to the north of the bustling, tourist-crowded city center. It's an area that trades in packed tour buses and ancient ruins for small groups of well-heeled visitors to Rome and elegant residences. Sure, there's the drawback of being farther from Rome's monuments, but it also puts you closer to some of Rome's best dining and nightlife. Many people consider staying here during their second or third visits to Rome, after they've gotten the Colosseum tours out of their systems. Just be prepared to take plenty of taxis or stay in the area: Rome's public transportation system is notoriously inadequate.
