Great boutique hotel near Spanish Steps. A little off the beaten path. Charming.

Our room was spacious and the amenities are nicer than most hotels in Europe. It is a fabulous location near the Spanish steps.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Eden Rome
Excellent hotel - though very expensive. Dinner there was also very good (again very expensive though).
Nice, but expensive...
Stayed at the Eden over Thanksgiving 2004. Staff upgraded room as we were celebrating our anniversary. Small, but nice accomodations. Lovely bathrooms. Good location...within walking distance of Borghese Gallery, Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain, Via Veneto, etc. Watch restaurant charges...paid 99 euros for very average continental breakfast. Would stay again if reduced rates were available. Very pleasant stay overall.
"Fabulous" is definitely the right word to describe this small and charming hotel.
We spent 5 days there (10th-14th november) and really enjoyed the place. We had a dinner at La Terrazza restaurant with a wonderful panoramic view of the holy city and the food was excellent. We also enjoyed a gorgeous room service dinner. Prices were amazingly reasonable, we were charged 183€ for the dinner in the restaurant and 143€ for the room service.
The staff were friendly and the concierge was very helpful and attentive to your every desire. Our Deluxe room was comfortable and fully furnished but a little bit cramped - well, it's european standard. The hotel is ideally located near the Plaza di Spagna and the shopping districts.
We definitely recommend this hotel for those who are looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay and like to be pampered. Le Meridien Eden truly deserves its 5-Star luxury hotel's reputation.
Worth the raves!
This hotel is definitely worth the raves it receives! My husband and I have just returned from an absolutely fantastic stay at the Hotel Eden Rome. It surpassed all expectations from the minute we walked in to the minute we got in the cab to (sadly) leave. This hotel has the highest quality of everything - bed linens, towels, amenities, water pressure, breakfast etc, etc, etc. You will not be disappointed!
Quiet Oasis Close to Crowds at Spanish Steps
If you are looking to experience Roma in a more residential and plush location away from the tourist sites, yet close enough within walking distance of the Spanish Steps, then stay here. Concierge, doormen, front desk staff and housekeeping helped make for a wonderful holiday with very little to complain -- 5 Stars are well deserved. Most other hotels in this category in the center of Roma do not have the quiet location away from major streets - it is ideally situated and offers impeccable service: genuine smiles abound upon entering the property. Plush robes, slippers, extra hand towels, foot towels, mini-bar, many choices! Don't forget to dine atop the hotel's signature restaurant Terrazza Della Eden with their infamous views! Threw our coins into Trevi so, we shall return and will certainly stay at Hotel Eden.
5 star hotel
Indeed it is a Le Meridien 5 star hotel. Friendly staff, clean wih a nice decor. Our room was small with a medium size marble bathroom, equipped with luxurious toiletries including a bath rope, facing an interior courtyard. The location was not the best, in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the Spanish Steps & the Via Veneto. The buffet breakfast served in the restaurant in the top floor included in our fare was superb, with a nice view. But for more than $500.00 a night, next time in Rome I'll stay in another hotel.
Friendly hotel in a potentially unfriendly city
The Hotel Eden was a fantastic place to stay after the hustle and bustle and sights of Rome. I loved the comfort of coming back to the people of the Hotel Eden after dealing with the rudeness I often encountered during my sight-seeing throughout the day. The concierge was especially friendly and helpful and did everything from book a guide or restaurant to mailing postcards back to the States. If you're looking for a comfortable room as well, this is your place! I didn't sleep in a more soft and comfortable bed that the Eden during my entire trip to Italy. Enjoy!!
Highlight of our honeymoon
We spent the last night of our honeymoon here, and loved the pampering touches. The staff was eager & helpful, and we arrived to a welcoming basket in our room with a complimentary bottle of champagne, chocolates, etc. Charming! Dinner at La Terraza was terrific, with a great panoramic view of the city. Simply perfect accommodations (but at a substantial price, of course).
2nd Wedding Anniversary here for 3 days. Perefct, great staff, excellent manner, attention, detial care and service. Great terrace for lunch and breakfast, super views of the City and walking distance to the top of the Spanish Steps, othe rthan the Russie hard to beat this class act. We would return to this hotel wiothout thinking....it is a credit to the team that run it.Gary Wigglesworth
Home Away From Home
I recently stayed at this hotel on my own for four days. It's expensive but it's definitely worth it (especially considering most hotels in Rome are expensive anyway) if you want to feel really at home in Rome.
This hotel is small enough to feel cozy, but it is definitely a world-class elegant hotel in every sense -- and it has a great location too (just off the Via Veneto and near to the Spanish Steps so you are close enough to everything but away from tourist traffic). From the second day onwards, everyone in the hotel knew me and treated me like an honoured guest in their master's grand palazzo. No wish was too trivial, no need went unnoticed. This is a hotel trained not to say no to anything reasonable and without questions -- so I had hot sandwiches at breakfast in place of the usual continental fare, half portions of pasta at midnight, and even a chance to say hello to the hotel's world-famous chef!
The Terrazza restaurant of the hotel, too, is probably Rome's best -- so make sure to have dinner here if you can. If not, the concierge has great suggestions on where to eat. I took my Roman friends to several of his recommendations and we were all very happy.
This would definitely be one's home away from home in Rome -- and this comment comes from someone who travels to Italy frequently for the love of it, and who has stayed in most of the best hotels in Rome.

Surprised by a visit from hotel housekeeping - a nice bottle of Spumante and a red rose to celebrate my birthday. Entertained ourselves watching some italian word game show on Rai Uno by which time we were ready to clear our heads of fizz to find food. Short walk downhill, then up again to Spanish steps. Down the steps to find Berninis galleon …
... there was a square that had a ton of people trying to sell the same stuff. It was a lot like Barcelona in that way. They were selling shlock, like my father would call it. The square had two very well preserved fountains that had very interesting statues in them. It was a neat square because of the number of street-performers that wanted money. Some were acrobats, some were musicians, and some were doing stupid things like throwing down a rubber toy that ...
Today is the day when the pope customarily delivers a brief greeting and blessing to those gathered in St. Peter's Square, so we made our way to the square, which was already bursting at the seams as we arrived shortly before noon. The square itself is roughly 6-acres in size, and was designed to hold upwards of 300,000 people, but on special occasions the crowds often spill over into the surrounding streets.
We jockeyed for a decent viewing site below ...
... up at the ceilings. Many of the naked male sculptures throughout the Vatican, have a delicately placed fig leaf. None of these fig leaves were originally part of the works. One of the Popes, many years ago, felt it was not chaste enough for the times, so he ordered that they all have a little modesty leaf sculpted and placed upon their privates. Any sculptures that remained nude and rude had been brought to the Vatican after this time. We also had ...
... while in town, figuring we would end up spending half a day alone there, ogling the art and statuary. In particular, I regret that we were unable to see Bernini's masterpieces, "The Rape of Proserpina" & "David," as well as the incredible works of Caravaggio, Rubens, Raphael, and Titian. Alas...I guess we had to leave something for next time!
With a pocket map in hand, we plotted out a course through the Centro Storico, the historic city ...
