Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Del Corso Rome
The best thing about the Hotel Del Corso is the location. It is right in the middle of a terrific shopping area and is walking distance to EVERYTHING in Rome. All the major sights are 15 minutes or less on foot. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They even put us up in a suite for our first night because for one of our 4 nights there they only had a smaller room available. The last 2 nights we had a room with a lovely balcony, perfect for people-watching. The breakfast was good and they served yummy cappuccino, but the best part was the roof garden where you get to sit and eat and soak up the sun. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and provided adequate space. I would definitely stay there again.
What a great experience!!!!! We would recommend this hotel to anyone! Great staff, nice clean rooms and LOCATION! You can't find a better one - literally just around the corner from the Spanish steps, Trevi fountain and everything else. Del Corso is also one of the main shopping streets... Breakfast on the roof was also great. We stayed there July 2-5, 2004 before moving on to Tuscany. We checked-in late and were told that for the first night we would get a small room, but for the next two, we would get one of the suites. We did not ask for this free upgrade, it was just offered to us! The next morning we went to walk around and when we came back the next night, the staff has moved all of our luggage into a suite with a balcony overlooking Del Corso st. The only bad experience was the loud family with what seemed like 50 children staying in the room next door!
Great location and friendly
Great location to see all the sites, all the personnel were very friendly and helpful. Gave some great dinning suggestions. Enjoyed the breakfast on the roof. Room had a full window over Via Del Corso nice people watching but very quiet. I do agree with another review the rooms were not very soundproof but it didn't cause us any problems.
Worst soundproofing in rome
soundproofing was terrible. if someone next door had gas, everyone heard it. Buffet breakfast was soso. Hotel was overpiced for what it gave. We also had ants in the bathroom and the rooms needed to be renovated desperately. Staff was okay and the location was super.
We loved this hotel
WE loved our stay here! We went in April 2003 during Holy Week. It was a very clean, hospitable hotel in an ideal location. It was 100 euros a night, a bit of a splurge however a good deal for the location and the type of hotel that it is. The breakfast was a little more than continental. Hte man at the front desk was not that helpful but not rude either. We would definitely stay there again one day.
Great location to see many sights in Rome. Front desk was very helpfull, making great suggestion on restaurants etc. Balcony room overlooking via del corso was great for people watching, good shopping in the immediate area. One suggestion to anyone traveling to Rome, take taxi's whenever you need to commute, subway is a bonanza for Albanian "GYPSY" theives and pickpockets.
Loved the Hotel Del Corso
My husband and I arrived in Rome at 6am after a long flight from Australia and were at the hotel by 8.30am and after checking in with reception, were shown to the breakfast room where one of their staff made us a cappucino and by 9am we were in our room, this was much appreciated as we didn't expect access to our room till 12 noon. We were delighted with our room which had a balcony looking out at Via Del Corso. Accommodation was perfect, service very cordial, breakfast was good and coffee superb. But for us the main thing was location, and it was more than ideal because the Via Del Corso is the absolute best place to stay in Rome and is within walking distance to all those beautiful piazzas and monuments. Highly recommend the Hotel Del Corso, we loved it, thanks to the staff who made our stay memorable. We will definitely stay there again next time we visit beautiful Rome.
Rude, Robbers, Rip off
I stayed here in April of 2003. Front desk run by an unfriendly man. His work area was small and he was alone trying to handle quite a few guests. The location was pretty good...a couple blocks from the Spanish Steps, however the maid robbed me of all of my money and travellers checks while I was in the shower the next morning. Unless there are chains on the door don't trust it. AND Reporting theft in Italy (esp. Rome) is a joke. Stay here at your own risk! by the way...the room was $100.00 a night.

... you really only get a view of the surrounding narrow streets.
Once we unpacked and changed in to Vatican appropriate attire (no shorts or skirts above the knee and no bare shoulders) we took the short subway ride over to Vatican City. Our plan was to get to the Vatican Museum by 12:30 because one it is free and two on Sunday that is the last entrance time. We walked in through the gates of St. Peter's square just as the noon bells were ringing, which ...
... settled and meeting with Bianca, we decided to go out for dinner. We went to this restaurant where the waiter looked like Ray Romano. I had a pizza with sausage, tomato sauce, mushrooms and parmesan cheese. Yum!!! A. Sandra, U. Chris and Jenna had spaghetti. So far, I have not had a bad meal on my trip and my fellow travellers said I have a knack for picking the good food on the menu. The flavours from the pizza were amazing. It will make your brain explode. It ...
... and she really just seemed to know everything about it. She showed us the entrances (there were many of them, allotted to different cross sections of the seating.) According to her, it was meant to seat about 50,000 people, but on some days would get up to even 70,000. The entire structure was designed with its exits so cleverly that it could be evacuated in 15 minutes at full capacity, in case there was an earthquake or an attack or something.

Landing in an Airbus A380 was an amazing experience. The flight from Dubai to Rome was a good flight. We actually flew up between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Iraq, then over Turkey and Greece. It took 30 minutes to get through Italian customs, and the dude did not even look at me after I gave him my passport. Our bus took us to our hotel, and we had a short time for a shower, and then it was off to the Church of the Jesu' ...
... beautiful. Breakfast is very different in Europe, Josh is loving the croissants with Nutella and of course cereal. I think they were in a bit of shock when they saw the breakfast buffet, we did try and explain to them what breakfast is like over here. But they are adjusting.
We were about a 15 min casual walk from the Vatican, so we were able to leave the car in the garage and walk, especially because the traffic is ...
