Historical Traveler Reviews Empire Palace Hotel Rome
Enjoyable stay at Empire Palace
We stayed at Empire Palace for 4 nights in late Sept. and it was one of our favorites. The hotel staff is extremely friendly. Our room was pretty small, but VERY clean (our shower was so small that a large person may have trouble fitting in there, and there was no tub). Location is good, although not as centrally located as some.
This hotel was in a residential area that was lovely to walk in. The staff was friendly, the breakfast bar was wonderful and relaxing and the rates were great for the level of comfort afforded. I would go back to this hotel before any other in Rome. It made our Son's marriage in Rome spectacular and memorable.
Great location, lovely boutique hotel
Stayed at the Hotel Empire Palace for three nights in August. Quiet, clean, lovely bedding and towels, spacious room for a mid-priced European hotel, and close to the Coliseum, the Spanish Steps, and the Trivoli Fountain. The breakfast was very good -- and the staff was very friendly AND helpful. I could not have been happier for the price.
We stayed at the Empire Palace for three nights in July 2004. Things started badly when we arrived and the doorman stood and watched as I tried to negotiate the double doors with a toddler in a stroller, however the young woman at reception was very helpful and friendly. The room was small but clean. I expected something a little more special based on what I had seen on the website. The location was good, it was a short walk to attractions like the Spanish steps and the Trevi fountain. Breakfast was fine, but again nothing out of the ordinary. We would not stay here again.
Small and quiet but nice
Small rooms, good breakfast, nice staff, quiet location 5 - 10 minutes walk to Tube stops. Very good and cheap lunch spots in the vicinity - eg. a cafe on the same block just walk around 180 degrees...full of locals having coffee in the front and sitting down to lunch at the back; tables outside too. The cheap italian restaurant across the road wasn't very good. Not such a great area for walking around at night.
A wonderful small hotel
Our travel agent recommended this hotel. Location was pretty central to most sightseeing. Hotel staff was very warm and helpful.Everyone was wonderful, but the doorman was was especially helpful. Rooms a little on the small side, but most everything is in Italy. The rooms were nicely appointed, the hotel very clean and the breakfast buffet was excellent. We stayed here for 4 day this May.
Good service at the Empire Palace
The Empire Palace Hotel is located just minutes from the Via Veneto area (a good place for shopping and dining). Not as centrally located as we would have liked, but the location was upscale. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Although the beds are a bit hard and the rooms smallish, the service was excellent! Did have an issue with the airconditioning--the hotel had not turned it on for the season--but, eventually, the problem was resolved. Also, in my opinion, the web site makes the hotel appear more stylish than it actually is. However, for this price point ($225-$250/night) it is probably one of the best in it's category. If you're looking for a good value, the Empire Palace is probably the place.
The first moment we arrived, I thought oh no, this is not going to be good, as the receptionist was busy talking to a friend on the phone. and continued to do so. She then proceeded to wipe her nose with her hand, eventually welcoming us !From that moment, everything improved, so much so that I wouldn't hesitate to strongly recommend this hotel to friends.Beautifully designed with small touches becoming of an intimate place (insisting we take an hotel umbrella as it was raining, a lovely tiramisu in our room to celebrate my wife's birthday)If and when we return to Rome, we will, without question, stay here again.
A wonderful way to experience Rome!
The Empire Palace Hotel is a class act from the moment you arrive at the door! The hotel itself is gorgeous; its staff incredibly friendly and helpful -- and the rooms are wonderfully decorated! The showers are a bit small, but all the furnishings are, as they say, "primo classe." The morning breakfast buffet is well-stocked and a delicious way to begin mornings in Rome. All in all, a great deal -- I first visited in May 2002 and am headed back there in a few weeks. I expect another great stay!
