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.

... back to sleep until about 9.30. So much for getting to the Vatican early. By 10.45 we were at nearby Spagna underground - at the Spanish steps - and three stops later at Ottaviano, the Vatican stop. It's Sunday and we didn't expect the train to be packed but it was and more passengers came on at the first two stops and none got off. Everyone got off at the Vatican stop and Craig commented if that's been happening every 3 minutes for the last couple of hours then there must be a ...
... to Rome just to see this if nothing else...I marvel at how it was built & the history behind it.
Then onto Pantheon & Trevi Fountain the day was getting very hot & the crowds getting thick.The buildings in their grandeur seem to absorb all the noise with so many tourists it seemed very quiet. Maybe we were all silenced in awe! And now we are enjoying some Italian wine in the cool of the ...
... serve the rapidly expanding food and commercial traffic of a city bursting with over one million residents like Rome; the overland transfer took too long and was too costly in human and financial resources. Beginning with Augustus, almost every Roman Emperor for the next two hundred years invested effort to reshape Ostia as Rome's major commercial port, and a strategic defensive bulwark for the Eternal City also. ...
... drive along the Amalfi coast to reach our hotel. Very narrow winding streets. The bus stopped at an observation point to take pictures and we all had a glass of Lemoncello, a sweet lemon liqueur which is a specialty of the area. This is lemon country! Tomorrow we see Pompeii and Naples before we board our overnight ferry to Sicily. Glass of wine in the gardens is calling! ...
Arriving in Rome was easy. Safely navigating to the Hostel (one step from St Peter) was not. I use the word safely here. I quickly realised that a timid driver here is lost. I used the physical presence and booming exhaust note to bully other drivers to let me take my way.
When I arrived at the Hostel, my host informed me that his own bike (a Kawasaki) was lifted from just outside. Oh dear I thought to myself. I looked at all the bikes around and noticed that even ...
