Historical Traveler Reviews Duke Hotel Rome
We stayed at the Duke Dec. 31 to Jan. 7. The staff, the polo lounge and the room were all 5 star. I cannot believe how lucky we were that we chose this hotel. Every other positive comment in the other reviews is absolutely correct. If we return to rome, we would not consider any other hotel.
An oasis of calm in a wonderfully frenetic city!
We have just returned from a great 4 night stay at the Duke Hotel, which we cannot recommend highly enough. We would certainly stay here again.
All the staff were friendly and helpful, whether on Reception, in the restaurant, Polo Lounge or driving the Mercedes shuttle into town. Everyone made us feel very welcome.
Our room was very comfortable, with a King size bed and a well appointed bathroom. The slippers and thick bathrobes were very welcome. It also benefited from a substantial terrace complete with a table and 2 chairs, as well as several planters with small lemon and olive trees full of fruit. We enjoyed sitting out on it after a full day in Rome!
The area is very quiet and relaxing, yet you are only a 10 minute shuttle ride from the Spanish Steps. We took the shuttle every morning, and easily got a taxi back at night.
Breakfast was very substantial with something to suit everyone!
This a an absolutely wonderful, first class hotel, even by American standards! Large, well appointed rooms with huge marble bathrooms (we had a double sink vanity and a bidet), generous towels & washcloths, queen size beds with great mattresses and bedding, prompt, friendly service and a very nice breakfast buffet is included. Off the beaten path, in a quiet neighborhood, but they offer a free shuttle or you can just have them call a taxi to go downtown when you please. We easily walked back from the Borghese gardens one day. The entire hotel is elegant and the staff speak very good English and are most helpful - they advised us about trains and made the reservations, ditto restaurants. Only problem was that one staff member advised too little time to go to the airport for our flight home! Luckily, we used our own judgement and slipped under the wire. (You must check in one full hour ahead, and traffic to the airport can be murder).
Small and secluded
we stayed here during August 2004 . The staff are attentive and genuinely happy to help . The restaurant is limited but perfectly adequate and the breakfast buffet is generously stocked .
After hot days with Rome's teeming tourists it was great to return to a secluded and quiet hotel . We would stay there again , no doubt .
My wife and I just came back from a five day stay at the Duke Hotel in Rome and I must say that we are absolutelly delighted by the services and the infrustructure that this hotel provides. The staff at the hotel was extremely accomodating, professional and helpfull, the breakfast was excellent (great selection of meats, cereals, juices, omeletes etc + one of the best cappuccino in Rome, and the atmosphere was very serene nad relaxing. The room was spotlessly clean and decorated with taste. The mirrors in the bathroom were sprayed with anti fog coating that way after taking a shower you dont have to wait for them to de-fog. There were also bathrobes and slippers. Every morning there was a copy of the Herald Tribune waiting for me at my door. The hotel is located in one of the most prestigious districts in Rome and even though it was somewhat far from the Center (10 minute ride) it was not a problem at all because the hotel provides rides (Mercedes Shuttle Bus) to and from the center of the city every hour or so. We loved this hotel and we will stay here again for our next visit to Rome.
The Parioli section of Rome, while mildly inconvenient with regard to the more centrally located hotels in Rome, is quiet and a welcome after the confusion that an international city such as New York, London, Paris or Rome is capable of. The "gestione" makes one feel relaxed beyond belief ( great hight's rest) after a tough day touring or at business. We went with our 2 children and had a joined room with a balcony. They were more than gracious with them and when my 22 year old son showed up in a taxi at 3 AM with no money, the desk quickly paid the driver and just put it on our bill. This is old world stuff and difficult to find today. Don't be suprised if you see some of the current entertaining stars there as this is the place they stay (and the management never lets anyone know- tha is how professional they are). They have a shuttle bus that leaves you right behind the Spanish steps.
I just returned from four nights at the Duke hotel, and can not say enough great things about this hotel. The room was lovely, the staff was as nice and attentive, and the shuttle to the city center was quite convenient. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
My husband & I just returned from 6 days at the Duke Hotel ( 2/22-2/28/04). It truly lived up to its 4 star rating! Everyone, in every capacity, was pleasant & happy to help us. They all wanted us to like Rome & to have a good time. Our room was lovely: cream walls, deep green & deep yellow draperies and bed coverings. We had a large marble bathroom with an enormous tub. Maids checked on the room several times a day & replaced wet towels, etc. We were lucky enough to have a large terrace, complete with lemon trees. Quite an addition to our room! Nowhere have we had a selection for breakfast that we had at The Duke. Every kind of cereal, juices, breads, croissants, muffins & breads, eggs and bacon, cheeses, fresh fruits, coffees and teas. I may have left out some items , too. We especially enjoyed sitting on the over-stuffed sofas after dinner and looking through the large art books on some of the sights we had seen during the day. Often the piano was being played and drinks or tea was being served. Although the hotel is not in the bustling center of Rome, we used the free shuttle service which placed us a block away from the Via Veneto and near the Metro. The selection of times to be dropped off and picked up gave us lots of leeway when we made our daily plans. Even at four in the morning, when we had to leave to get our plane home, the staff was cheerful and caring. This palce was a pure pleasure.
Excellence in Rome
superb hotel in a quiet neighbourhood, but not too far away from the city center, very attentive staff, very good italian food in the restaurant, lounge is "very british", i would definitely stay there again.
A Lovely Home in Rome
This is a wonderful hotel with lovely rooms, an attentive staff, and a great breakfast on offer. It has the light, airy spacious feeling so lacking at many Rome hotels, which are usually on the dark and heavy side. It is also very elegant and at the same time complete with modern amenities such as Internet access, etc.
This hotel is in the high-end residential district of Parolia, which is a boon and a bane. It is quiet and gives you the feeling that you are living in Rome rather than being a tourist in it, and it's great for morning and evening strolls. However, the hotel is rather far from the general tourist and business areas although it has a free shuttle to the center of town several times a day.
I would certainly stay here each time I am in Rome as it is like being in a lovely home away from home. At current prices, it also offers exceptional value for Rome.

... Italy. A fair bit of memorabilia inside all pertaining to the Italian forces over the past hundred plus years, as well as a tomb to the unknown soldier. We then walked to the Colosseum so as to get some pics of areas we could see without actually entering there, or going in to the Forum areas. Spent quite some time ...

After a pretty continual sit down in the shade between short sweaty walks we went to St Peter's Basilica and I wasn't allowed in as I was wearing a sleeveless top and shorts! I stayed outside in what Sam deemed the 'slut line' (great) while Sam went in, and I talked to a 70 yr old Danish man who had given his wife his tshirt so she could go in after! He was very sweet, told me all about his travels ...
What do an ancient sea port outside of Rome, a 250 car Lamborghini parade and Saint Peters Basilica have in common with the best ice cream in Rome? They all happened on Thursday. The trip to Ostia Antica was planned and the others just happened on our way back to the apartment. I had read reviews of a very little ice cream place near the Vatican and it was 4pm and time for a snack. I do better with frequent feeding. Found it, stood in a long line, chose, and ...
