    Service in this hotel was satisfactory, the facilities were fairly good and the location - just a few blocks from the coliseum - was quite good. We were on a fully paid tour so were not required to buy anything except Internet time and refreshments from the bar. I thought it was on the pricey side - use of the hotel net access was 5 euros for 30 minutes - but am prepared to accept the is the way it is in Rome.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Palatino Grand Hotel Rome

    Perfect location


    Perfectly located between the Station and the Colloseo, and right next to a Metro stop. Friendly and helpful staff, very nice breakfast, characterless but functional room with good view of Rome's skyline.

    A very enjoyable weekend.

    Very Central


    Have just got back from 3 nights at the Grand Palatino Hotel. First thing to point out is it is very central, which is what we were looking for, and the staff are very friendly, we had a wonderful time. I will point out that all our rooms were on the 7th floor, and there was some sort of problem with the air conditioning/water which was causing a noise in the 3 rooms facing the back of the hotel (even numbers) ours on the front wasn't affected, by the way, they did know about this, so beware. We asked for rooms with good views, thinking the website photos looked fantastic, not sure where these photos were taken but ours didn't look anything like these!! After initial disappointment, we looked on the bright side and got out to look at the sights, of which there are many.

    Don't even think about driving in Rome, everywhere is of easy walking distance, although flat shoes will be needed, the romans have a special way of treating pedestrians, and if you want to stay alive, I suggest you keep off the roads and if you do have to cross, get eye contact with the driver and keep your wits about you, and then RUN !!

    Great location


    Hotel was in a great location at a good rate. Just a few minutes from the Colosseum and the metro station. The staff was so helpful and pleasant to deal with. There is a wonderful little restaurant right behind the hotel that the hotel recommended-definitely worth a try.

    Ask for a room at the back of the hotel for a more quiet stay.

    Great find in great location


    What a pleasant surprise. Only surprising because the rate was so reasonable. A clean, well-maintained hotel with a courteous and helpful staff who had simple, friendly answers to all our questions. The room was decent-sized as European hotel rooms go, with a more than adequate bathroom. I would advise only that you request a room in the back of the building, off the noisy Via Cavour...not an enormous issue, but it stays busy down there until quite late. The breakfast was excellent, served in a light, airy dining room...everything from scrambled eggs and meats to cold and hot cereals, fresh fruit, great blood orange juice...easy to enjoy a light morning bite or a major breakfast, if that's what you're after. Most of all, the location is stupendous -- particularly for Ancient Rome sights. The Colosseum is a 5-minute walk, the Forum even closer...Piazza Venezia and the Victor Emmanuele Memorial are 10 mins. I thought I'd regret not staying in the Piazza Navona or Campo Di Fiori area, but this was far more ideal. Go enjoy! Ciao!

    Great Place for Honeymoon


    Stayed in theis great hotel the first week of March, what a great place. The rooms were all great sized it was a little loud on the street side but there were shutters that did a good tick of helping out. The staff was great, the waitress in the bar and the piano man played what you wanted. Great location, just about around the cornor from sights and a great place to eat about 100m up on the right, Robin Hood's. We would stay here again!!

    Loved it.


    We were there January 2004. There is nothing I can say bad about this hotel except that it is on a busy street that is somewhat noisy from 9 am to 1 am. I didn't mind it. The rooms were nicer than most 4 star American hotels I stayed at. They were large, clean and cozy. The bathrooms were a good size as well. Front desk spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The breakfast was good too. I might also add that we were on the 5th floor and had to keep the window open at night because the room heated up quite a bit even with it being 30 degrees outside. It does have air conditioning, so I am sure in the summer it stays pleasant.

    Would go there again


    My husband and I stayed here in late Sept., 2003 and loved it. The room and bath were good-sized, clean, well-appointed. What put this hotel above average for us were: location, a GREAT concierge and the smooth way they helped everyone through the Italian blackout they made sure a breakfast was served (it had to be cold, of course)- but somehow the generator made coffee, a real blessing. They handled all the chaos that day with aplomb and service to their customers. Only negative: their restaurant is overpriced.

    Little jewel of a hotel


    Visited December 2003, This is a very well maintained hotel in a convenient location near the major historical attractions. Our room was small, but beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the food and service in the restaurant. The staff was unfailingly courteous and helpfull. The only downside was a large tour group that monopilized the lobby and clogged the elevators.

    Uninspiring, but great location


    We stayed here in May 2003. A U.S.A. tour group was there during our stay & they seemed contented enough.It's a big anonymous hotel with 8 floors. 4-star but would be a 3-star anywhere except Italy. Rooms are a good size, with air-conditioning and comfortable beds. Although on a main road, the soundproofing is pretty decent. Our room was a nice haven from the chaos of Rome!It's in a really good location on Via Cavour, half a mile from the train station, only 5 mins walk from the Colosseum in one direction, and the Forum in the other. Spanish Steps, Trevi, Piazza Navona are all about a mile away (easily walkable - by us Europeans anyway!) , and only the Vatican area is a bit of a hike. The hotel is close enough to sights that you can return for a siesta/break before venturing back out into Rome. There is a Metro stop 100 yards away.There are a few atmospheric eating places just on the sidestreet behind the hotel.The standard room rate is about 280 Euros, but we got a "Laterooms" booking for 150 Euros, which is pretty good for central Rome. As it's so big, I'd expect it to do discounts.Unless you're keen on the Vatican, this location is hard to beat. (The Duca D'Alba hotel is on the street just behind). Beforehand we had a slight worry it was too close to the train station (usually seedy), but this was unfounded, the area is fine and perfectly safe at night. Just don't expect style, elegance and charm - the rest of Rome should provide that!

    Our visit day in Rome was quite interesting. We arrived at our hotel at about 3pm after taking a taxi from the airport. We then decided to take a stroll around Rome after freshing up. Strolled right down our street and discovered the colosseum to the left, amazing as ever. Then continued to walk down towards the Spanish steps. Weather was pretty …

We planned a pasta primavera for dinner to take advantage of the bounty of summer vegetables, wandering around to see what struck us.
