Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caprice Rome
An good little Hotel with nice helpful staaff. Once you get pass the Cicacica Boom Club (which we never noticed) the location was excellent - we were within walking distance to everything we whated to see - The spanish steps - Roman Forum - Colssium - Circus Maxium - De Triva - Excellent restaurants - close to the subway. We would definitly return.
ONLY PROBLEM - EVERYONE IN ROME SMOKES -AND MAKES BREATHING AND LIFE MISERABLE FOR THOSE OF US WHO WISH TO ENJOY LIFE.
My husband and I recently stayed at the Caprice (22/23 December 2003).
We considered we got what we paid for. It was reasonably central and we found a couple of local pizzerias which were very good to eat at.
Reception staff not particularly helpful, but then we have no Italian speaking abilities other than gracia and ciao! Our room was adequate, clean, but very small bathroom. Bonus of a free breakfast was unexpected. Loved Rome, would probably stay at Caprice again because of its location.
We should have known ...
Because we stayed at the Caprice for 11 nights and asked to see some available rooms on check-in, we were given a room with a balcony and a good-sized bath. The balcony, however, housed the air-conditioning unit for the floor, and make a horrendous noise when it rained. Breakfasts are great -- HOWEVER ... one morning someone came up to us in the breakfast room and asked us if she could buy a cup of coffee or if it was only for guests. While we were trying to be helpful to her, her accomplice was stealing my shoulderbag -- from the breakfast room! We thought the hotel staff could have been more helpful/sympathetic/apologetic, and when we asked if they were going to change the lock to the room (the key was in my bag), they simply shrugged their shoulders, and said the thieves would never get beyond the front desk. It was a painful and costly lesson; we still love Rome, can hardly wait to go back, but not to the Caprice.
Old hotel, next to topless club
Service-wise, the front desk person was very helpful in phoning one of the museum to change our reservation, without him, we would have miss it. They were friendly overall. But the hotel itself is old, the rooms are not consistently good. Our rooms look like old dormitory-style accomodation, the drawers, closets look so old, I was afraid to put things in there. Likewise, bathroom needs some work too (not getting my money's worth of $120/night). However, we saw housekeeper cleaning the room next to ours, that room look much nicer. A note of caution, the hotel is next to a topless club. But it was relatively safe to get back to hotel after mid-night, my friends & I went back in early AM a few nights after day trip to nearby cities. If this hotel commits to renovations, I would recommend this place.
A wonderful stay and comfortable surroundings
we stayed at the caprice near the spanish steps the hotel was lovely ans max was a wonderful receptionist very helpfull
I Agree - Avoid!
I stayed there a couple of years back and the elevator can only acommodate 2 people at a time (?) and was broken a lot (luckily we were only 2 flights up). The 1st room we got was (literally) 7x10 feet with TWO twin beds & an armoire. I made a stink about it and they gave us a MUCH bigger room on the same floor. With the exception of Bruno (who was just a beautiful human being), everyone else on the desk staff was horrible. My friend and I were expecting the hotel to be near the Spanish Steps, but the hill it's on is treacherous. If you're thinking of bringing your family, forget it. The Caprice is RIGHT NEXT to a strip joint. You're better off staying at La Docle Vita B&B (that's where I stayed the last timne I went). It costs less and is 1/2 a block from the train, about 1-1/2 blocks from Trevi fountain and about 3-4 blocks from the Spanish Steps.
Small rooms and smelly elevator
This old hotel needs to be avoided at all cost. It is located near Via Venetto which is long over its glory days of the 60s. It will take you an hour to get to the main sites in Rome. The hotel staff has very little information to share with the guests and generally unfriendly. The elevator has a terrible odor. We had to hold our noses each time we got into the elevator!!!! The rooms are small and the carpets dirty. Someos the plaster work on the walls are falling off. The bathrooms are fairly new but very small. A standing room shower with a sink is all you are going to get. No place but the ground to put your personal stuff.

... 1400 names of those whose bodies were never identified. The setting is immaculately kept, with crosses for Christians and markers topped with the Star of David for Jews, and a chapel and memorial wall at the top of the hill. A solemn but thoughtful stop. We arrived in Rome shortly after noon, where John deposited us in a plaza and left to park the bus several miles away. Rome is full of churches, and some of the ruins are ruins because they were ...
We started our day by enjoying one last buffet breakfast of tasty pastries, cheeses, fruits, and meats. We'll definitely be getting back into some hardcore gym routine when we get back. Need to work off all these cheese chins. With the hotel kindly holding our bags for us we ventured across to the smallest internationally recognised independent state in the world, Vatican City. Having now booked online we were able to skip the three and a half hour line and ...

Accommodation is nice, an 1800s building with a cute wooden pulley elevator in Via Nicolo. The owner Lucia showed us through. Very nice. Shower extremely tight, I have to shuffle round like I am on a spit and if I drop the soap, it's all over red rover! We have a nice terrace with a view of St Peters and the local bus 64 goes everywhere ...
... go up again, to the cuppola, where the steps got narrower and hotter and then it got slower and more crowded. In one area the walls are slanted because of the shape of the dome, so it messes with your brain and makes you feel like you might fall. I didn't tell the kids, but the small space and the heat started to bother me and I could feel a little claustrophobia setting in. I have to say that I have had claustrophobia in some of ...
