Bottom Line

This 152-room hotel -- part of the Royal Group, with several properties around Italy -- is located in an elegant building near the Trevi Fountain. Built in the early 1900s as a hotel for diplomats visiting nearby embassies, this property is known for providing more generous space than the competition -- but it's certainly not the luxury property it advertises itself as. While the marble, stuccowork, and columns are all restored and elegant, rooms are basic and show some light wear and tear. Rooms facing Via Veneto may experience some street noise, but rear-facing rooms have less desirable views. Breakfast is free and the on-site restaurant has a nice terrace overlooking Via Veneto. The American Bar, featuring live piano in the evenings, is a lovely place for pre-dinner cocktails.
