Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bernini Bristol Rome
One of Rome's great hotels
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and we would recommend it to anyone. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and spoke English well. They gave excellent suggestions for places to eat and to visit. The breakfast was lavish. Our hotel room looked out onto the piazza and Bernini's beautiful fountain. Next door is an Internet cafe, and the Via Veneto begins on the other side. We probably wouldn't have spent as much ordinarily, but for a special occasion, it was worth it.
This place is a gem.
The perfect proposal...
absolutely fabulous...food,rooms,service,staff,views, 100% romantic, the perfect setting for our engagement. we will return asap !!
Nice location to stay with a friendly people!
Recently we stayed at this hotel, and I really like the location. It's not very far from any major place to see in Rome (ex: Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Via Condotti, Hard Rock Cafe....etc). The room is nice and clean, but of course you can't compare it to a 5 stars hotel in US.
The concierge people were very helpful. The complimentary breakfast were great and the server were very nice (again, just like any regular continental breaskfast, you can't expect like in major US 5 stars hotel in US). Overall I had a pleasant and nice stay in this hotel during my recent vacation.
Could have chosen much better hotel
great location. cramped room and closet. marble bathroom sufficient size. concierge not particularly helpful. next time, we'll stay at the westin excelsior.
An acceptable hotel in central Rome
My hubby and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in mid-July 2003. We were lunckily given a room on the 3rd Floor facing the fountain. The room is spacious but is really in need of repair. The hotel is in good location and you can walk for 10 minutes from shopping areas like Via del Corso. The breakfast is terrible and most are cold items. Don't trouble with the breakfast if that's not include in your room rate!
Anyway, the hotel is an acceptable hotel in Central Rome!
A great location
A well situated hotel with an impressive imposing ground floor.
We stayed in two rooms - the first was falling apart and dirty and after complaining we were moved to a junior suite.
This room too was in need of repair with a bathroom door that did not shut.
The hotel is rated 5 stars and neither room was of 5 star standard
The staff were however pleasant, accommodating and helpful
A graceful hotel that still retains hints and echos of what was probably a more glamourous and fashionable time (Think Sophia and Marcello). It is still wonderfully located, nicely maintained and appointed and graced with a service staff that was absolutely superb.
Do not miss the roof top restaurant at sunset or the excellent brakfast.
Blackouts were common, I did not feel comfortable in the dark: flood in room. Staff seemed unconcerned.
Indulgence if only for one night. Beautiful view from the Terrace on the top floor. Large suite, firm bed All marble bathrooms with jacuzzi, with everything you could wish for. Centrally located for all the shops. Staff 'your wish is their command'!
Next stop Bernini Milan!
Loved Bernini, over 10 return trips back here in 3 years
The Concierges are wonderful and knowledgeable, the rooms fantastic with fabric walls and great luxury and comfort, the health spa downstairs with the big whirlpool jacuzzi super, the location soo good with the Spanish Steps 10-15 minutes away and the same for other locations, I am not a big walker and I never take a taxi to any location in Rome, thanks to the central location. The Restaurant Olympus on top is truly as good or better than the best in SF, and more original, and the service always impeccable. The people there are wonderful and they try to please. Always. I have stayed at a few others, but never when they have room for me at the Bernini.

... could tell immediately that my parents had not exaggerated about how gorgeous this place is - standard buildings look like works of art, incredible architecture at every turn - and it's CLEAN. No burnt out dumpsters lining the streets, rubbish strewn everywhere. Rome makes Naples look like a **** hole, not going to lie. You know that naughty family member everyone has, the cousin that ****** up somewhere or brother who got into trouble and is now kind of ...
... the tour guide so it was really good. We also learned quite a bit about Romes history since our tour guide is currently doing his masters in the subject, so that was an added bonus! We then died, exhausted and full we had a nap and woke up at like 8pm so headed out for, wait for it, more food. Delicious pizza and suppli which is fried risotto balls. So much food in one day. On our last day in Rome we decided to head to some more sights, we went back and had another ...
... they have public fountains of all sorts around the city whee you can fill your water bottle or wash down your face. The water is clean and pure here...hmmmmm. We started our day by enjoying a light breakfast, cappuccino and croissants. I have no complaints. Then we headed to the colosseum. My dad was looking forward to this day, because he is a huge history buff. We took a tram to Piazza Pilasso, which quickly became our base to get home each ...
... but I must say that I prefer American pizza with lots of cheese.
The Colosseum Tour was amazing. We had a small group of only about 6 people and they took us to the underground, the third tier for an incredible view, and out onto the Colosseum floor! We were followed around by a lady who unlocked the gate at each section. They only let one tour group in at a time, so it was like we had the place ...
... or the Colosseum as part of their final year studies...I bet they're jealous of the Deakin Geelong architecture students who have the choice of Skilled Stadium or Smorgy's Pier :) We booked a tour through Walks of Italy for the Colosseum and whilst I forget how much we paid for it, it was worth it however much it was. We got "skip-the-line" access (that phrase is annoying becoming part of our everyday vocabulary, and it's like one of those silver-plated team emblems ...
