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.

I note, as compared to the arancini I have made myself with tutelage from Valentina Harris They are massive. Cricket ball sized. I've been aiming at golf ball. The rice is more defined. I should cook it less perhaps. Saffron is used in the Sicilian. I think they roll them in coarse polenta not bread crumbs. This wine is very ...
... and gateway entrance to Campo dei Fiori. I wander through the Jewish Ghetto area and around the Porto d'Octavia from ancient Rome.
When it's time for the meeting of the tour, I make my way to Piazza Mattei where the fountain of the turtles is located. We start in a lovely wine restaurant. Bruno is our tour guide for this food and wine walking tour. We are to visit 6 places to taste a variety of dishes and wines from many different regions ...
... not torches. The arena floor was wood so that would be a fire hazard.
On the arena floor were several trapdoors. The entire floor was covered with sand so no one knew which area the gladiator or animal would arrive from. The top of the arena also was decorated like a stage, for example one may be a building and the spectators could see a lion hiding and where the gladiator was. Other scenes could be a forest or something. The sand also served ...
... a result we were unable to reach our hotel. After a few expleatives and a whole lot of hand-waving by our tour guide, we were then politely lead to a booked taxi, only to arrive at our hotel at 11pm. We were tired and hungry, and not very impressed by our shoebox sized room in an old hotel in the heart of what is meant to be the very fashionable district of Rome. No problemo - a scary stroll down the road at midnight and a pizza later, we headed back and collapsed into ...
... br> We were now ready to go to Rome from the Fumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) airport. We had read on the official Rome tourism site that taxis into anywhere in downtown Rome were a €40 flat rate. Just in front of the official kiosk for Rome taxis, we were approached by a man offering a taxi ride for us, and when Al asked how much, the man gave him a card showing it would be €75! Another close call with the scammers! So we went to the official taxi counter, and the ...
