Hotel Beverly Hills Rome
Travel Blogs from Rome
This morning we left Venice and travelled south to Rome arriving in the evening. We had an evening tour of Roma and the Vatican City, we hope you enjoy our photos.
Off to an early start (again) had to get to the Vatican before all the big line ups....hmmm! Arrived at the wall at 8.30am and already there were hundreds lining up and down the street. It looked a bit like Thanksgiving weekend at Disneyland. Thankfully we were part of a tour and we got preferential line treatment. There were the usual security bag …
Long drive from Venice to Rome (0730 – 1530). Drive into Rome and see the seedy end of town with prostitutes offering their wares on the roadsides as we entered Rome. Not sure how anyone would get their services since the traffic moves so fast and so erratically. The tour guide explained that watching traffic in Rome is also a tour highlight …
After breakfast today we were taken straight to the Vatican City. By 8.30am we were in the Vatican museum. We did not have to join the line to enter and we were joined by a local guide who did the narrating. She was able to take us to special places behind the public places that other people did not go to, like the grand spiral staircase which was …
So this morning we boarded our private boat after breakfast and made our way back to the coach for the long drive down to Rome. Tom and I are currently trying to avoid having our head colds develop into bronchitis so we slept most of the way through Tuscany and beyond. The farmhouses were very nice, but the landscape is not as neat as Belgium and …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Beverly Hills Rome
The Hotel beverly Hills is great if you plan on spending alot of time around Rome. It is in an ok location and the rooms are neat and spacious. Not the classiest or nicest hotel I've been to but it was great for a quick trip to Rome!
First off....this hotel couldnt get any worse. Not only was it far but the service couldnt get any worse. I book this hotel way ahead of time and after i arrive in rome and take the cab there...they claim to have no rooms available and made up some stupid excuse that there was none available. Meanwhile there were people waiting in the lobby probably waiting to be checked in. The service was bad, I hate to mention any names but Francesco or whatever had some type of attitude at the front desk and tried to blow me off and then sent me to jolly hotel for the night and claimed i could return anytime. So i had to drag my luggage out of their tiny lobby and hop into a cab and relocate. What a pain...dont ever book this hotel. Bad service and lack of courtesy. I'd rather stay at the Termini station with the bums than ever have to stay there. Better off at the Jolly hotel at Via Veneto.
This was a nice hotel in a fun neighborhood. A grocery store is a few blocks away, shopping too as well as a good bar and pizzeria within the block. The cab rides to other parts of Rome were about 10 euro.
Can't be bettered
I agree with all of the above who loved it - in August it is a beatiful walk through the villa borghese to the centre, and once you are there, everything is within walking distance anyway. We loved I Butteri restaurant on Via Regina Margherita, although we wouldn't recommend it for vegitarians! There is even a chinese restaurant next door, which is great if you don't want to walk any more when you get back. Breakfast sets you up for the rest of the day, and once you ahve bought a small bottle of water, you can get refills all over the city from the water fountains - and water never tasted better than when it came cold and sweet from those fountains!
A comfortable hotel with good facilities. The Beverly Hills is a little way from the centre of things, but for a few euros we made good use of tram routes 3 and 19 which travel to the Vatican and Colosseum passing just a few yards from the hotel. A walk through the neighbouring Villa Borghese park is a pleasant way of reaching the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto etc.
Go somewhere else
This hotel is, at most, a three star - even by European standards. The room was noisy and smelly. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
This was our first trip to Italy. Our experience with the Grand Hotel Beverly Hills was less than desirable. It was a nightmare. We paid for our Hotels in full, prior to our trip. Rome was our first destination.
A pleasant experience
We stayed here for three nights in late August and were delighted with this hotel. the staff were very helpful in every respect. It is located right on the bus line so there were no major problems getting to the sights. I would stay here again without any second thoughts.
The title of this review sums up the attitude of the wonderful staff at the GBH. - everything we wanted was - No Problem! This was very much a last minute trip and we had little choice of hotels available. We would have chosen a more central location - but when we arrived were delighted with our Hotel. Our flight out was a nightmare due to the good old French Traffic Control Staff at Paris CDG. When we eventually arrived reception staff at GHB were so concerned for us. We were just glad to be there and in Rome. Our whole stay in Rome was a dream come true and whenever we returned to the Hotel the lovely people who work there made us feel we were returning to our little haven. Rooms are well appointed, nice big bed for 2, shower & bath (not always the case in Italy). Barman was so friendly, like being in your local pub.
This was our first trip to Europe and we enjoyed our stay at this small, quaint hotel. It was in a lovely neighborhood, away from the tourist areas (a short taxi ride away) and made us feel like we were returning home after a long day of sight-seeing. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly since we spoke no Italian. Our room was very clean and was well taken care of everyday. We will definitely go back again.
