Hotel Del Corso
Travel Blogs from Rome
We spent 2 nights in Rome. Chris & I arrived after Meg & Josh, and my luggage was lost for the first 24 hours we were there. Good thing we traveled with Meg & Josh because Meg had some jeans I could wear. Make sure to pack extra outfits in your carry on bag! We stayed at Hotel Del Corso. The room was smaller than we thought, but …
... me of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi. One other really cool aspect of the monastery was that St. Francis of Assis actually visited Subiaco a few years before he died. Since Saint Francis was a highly known figure in the Catholic world even during his lifetime, the abbot of Subiaco wanted a fresco portrait of St. Francis to be done during his visit. This fresco is the only depiction of St. Francis without the stigmata (since he would not receive it for another ...
... made couldn't be fixed. Michelangelo was a perfectionist and locked himself in the chapel for 5 years while he painted the ceiling, then much later in his life he painted the judgement fresco on front wall. The chapel is actually quite small, and because of the crowds (approx 25,0000 people visit the Vatican every day it is open) our time in there was very short. And there was no way that it was quiet. Other tour guides were not so respectful of the rules and ...
As we have seen Rome we had day on ship and thoroughly enjoyed!!! Sat by pool and read book and lots of swims. Meditteranean bar-b-q on Lido deck. I stayed in bathers all day. Best night thus far on ship. Lots of drinks with Di, Annie, Rod, Susan, Tim and Ellie. Bed at 1.30 and crashed I am sticking to my no bed before midnight ...
After an amazingly easy flight thanks to upgraded seats, we were feeling surprisingly decent. We took a cab to Trastavere where we found our flat on the Via Del Moro. It's absolutely perfect, but as we found out, very loud at night, as Via Del Moro gets jammed with people starting around 6pm and doesn't quiet down until bars close around 3am. We were thankful we ...

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.
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.
