    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Ritz Rome

    A great holiday

    from

    One month ago, I had a great holiday in Italy. Although I was not so much keen in this country, my partner and I had a last minute decision on where to go! I would never believe that Italy would fascinated me so much, we've seen almost all the destinations of the country.

    Stayed in Rome, Florence and Venice, Italy is a beautiful country, clean, with friendly people, nice food, great nightlife. Ritz hotel in Rome, was more than excellent! I will definately visit again Italy, it's an ideal destination for romance and tourism.

    Loved it!

    from

    When we arrived we were suprised to see that the same amount that got us a closet-sized room in other cities got us a suite at the Grand Ritz. Although it was far from major sites we were able to get taxis that were set price (less than 30 to and from the airport). Besides that, travel was easy since the subway was only a few steps away. I would definitely return!!!

    Great value for money

    from

    Stayed in July 2003, no complaints at all, first time in Rome and the staff were helpful. Rooms and facilities were excellent

    Location is quite a way out from the main sights but once you get your head around the metro system it is quite easy, quick and cheap to get around. The nearest metro station is just around the corner and takes minutes to get to the nearest sights, reception gave me a map of the city with all the sights and metro stations marked on it.

    The station for the hotel is on a minor line, from central Rome get to Flaminio station then get on metro for Euclide. You will emerge in to Piazza Euclide, turn right past a newstand and restaurant right again and the hotel is there. Do not take a cab its a rip.

    They hate children

    from

    We did find our stay pleasant and the hotel is suitably located near the train station for easy access to the city and a fantastic hot plate restaraunt called the Piazza Eclude opposite, this made our stay more bearable because the staff were rude, unhelpful and frightened the kids by yelling at them when they saw them on their own. The breakfast was a joke as they offered limited selection for children. I loved Rome but our stay here almost ruined it!

    Warning! Do not stay here!

    from

    In our two weeks in Italy this was our worst experience -- in fact in thirty years of traveling this is one of the worst ever. Our room on the seventh floor (the elevator only goes to the sixth and it is a long haul to the seventh) was tiny. It had neither a desk, nor a chair, nor a bedside lamp. There were foul fumes coming from somewhere (the basement said the desk clerk -- we have no control over this -- go outside and get some fresh air, she suggested). No one could tell us how to use the internet service (just push buttons until you see internet said the desk clerk). But the worst was the bed -- a lumpy marshmallow -- and a two by two foot structural pillar in the middle of the room. I am a travel writer by profession and would not have given this place one star, much less four. Warning: it is not located near THE train station; it is located near a subway station. It is a 20 euro ride from the train station to this hotel. Spend those 20 euros on a decent hotel. We booked and prepaid for two nights and left after one.

    Great Hotel, bad location

    from

    The Grand Hotel Ritz, was an absolutely beautiful hotel. The staff was extremely curtious, and very helpful. Food in the hotel was very good, and well priced. The hotel is not near any sites, but the metro stop (which the metro is not the easiest thing to use) and the bus stop are right by the hotel. If you want to know how to get to the sites, the hotel staff will help you. The room was very clean, every day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Don't do it!

    from

    Room too small, air system maintained only 1 temp., bad location for sight seeing. Train provided easy access but stops running too early, even before you are done with dinner. Taxi from train station too expensive and sub/train takes 30+ minutes. Suggest staying within the area made up by Piazza di Spagna, Colosseum, and Vatican for the best time and easiest access to all of the sights.

    4 stars?????

    from

    we wondered where the other 2 stars came from. the room was small and looked like something from the 'grand ol opry'. The 'hair dryer' was from the 70's (i took pictures) at least and blew cool air that smelled the same as the subway air. The plugs were old and did not accomodate a personal european hairdryer. The new installed plug found under the sink, did not work. The room refridgerator did not work, was hot, and the contents were old. The air control in the room would not function properly and would not cut off, it blew constant air at 26 celcius, and got very warm. The room was not cleaned until after 4pm one day, when I had to go to the desk to ask for some one to clean the room. There were no maps in the hotel or other information about Italy. They had one or two flyers advertising events back in november. The hotels in italy we previously stayed in, provided all sorts of information. The breakfast was very average, and typical of any hotel breakfast. nothing spectacular that would warrant 4 stars. The door knob to the room did not shut because it was broken, 2 places in the bathroom, the tile had gaping cracks in it. It smelled old and musty in general, due to the fabric on the walls probably. It was in an ok place as far as the train is concerned..that was the best part. The milk and juice were watered down at breakfast to make 'more' i suppose. The list goes on, Im not sure I would recommend this hotel as far as service and 4 stars..but for access to the train..it was a good place.

    Loved Grand Hotel Ritz

    from

    We were attending a conference and discovered that the conference hotel had no air conditioning, July in Rome. At the last moment, we found the Grand Hotel Ritz on the Internet. What a relief! For a very, very reasonable price we got a lovely room with cold air conditioning, a helpful staff, crisp sheets and towels, a nice breakfast. Bus service is available to the center and it's a walk to the magnificent Villa Borghese and the zoo.

At one point the waiter apologized to me for our corner table and said that it had been the owner who seated us and "he is 84 years old and does not know he should never put a lady in the corner. He should just stay at home and stop causing problems". I thought of a few other employees I know who might relate to this comment!! Lucky for them... ...

    ... there would be Crystal Cruise porters waiting for us at the airport to help us with our luggage and get us to the right place in the airport!

    Even with that last little bit of pampering it was quickly back to reality, fighting the crowd, battling the heat, and paying for our food!

    ... the Forum, Palatine and Colosseum. We walked round the Roman Forum and the Palatine first, and enjoyed reading about what the old city looked like, and imagining Asterix and Obelix's Rome. The structures that were remaining were truly incredible, especially the arch that the Arc de Triomphe is modelled off, and Caesar's old house, where a lot of the wall decorations and paintings are still intact. Again, we were awed by the size of the Palatine especially, and just ...

    ... were few people there. We just wandered around for a few hours and even got lost trying to leave. Forgot to turn left at the fork in the road I guess?

    I have almost lost my voice and it is very frustrating, I think David and the boys are OK with it though. Go on everyone, make a few jokes about Jen being unable to speak! Anyway, one last night in noisey, messy Rome- going to miss Italy.
