Historical Traveler Reviews Hiberia Hotel Rome
Recent Renovation - The Only Good Thing
Very small (however it is a usual thing in average European hotels), but completely renovated with very nice decoration. Very clean. Not enough & of a bad quality usual bath "things" (take your own shampoo & shower gel!) No pen & paper for notes. Air-conditioned, but not enough during hot days.
BREAKFAST: Very poor. Uncomfortable smocky breakfast room.
Very close to Piazza Venezia (from some hotel windows one can see Altar Della Patria) and very beginning of an endless via del Corso. 20 min. by foot or EUR 7 by taxi from shopping district (via Condotti, via del Babuino). That is rather far, especially when you are full of shopping items. If you are in Rome for shopping, choose inexpensive hotels right in the shopping district: Hotel Siena, Hotel San Silvestro, Hotel Tritone, Hotel Croce di Malta. Or if you want to live near Piazza Venezia, choose Hotel Bolivar which is right near Hiberia (check it's feedback).
HOTEL MANAGEMENT & RECEPTION:
Rude and lying. We met two very unpleasant situations.
Just returned from 2 nights in this hotel. One front desk man was very rude and not very helpful. The only good thing is the location. Small baths, water leaked all over the floor. No view but quiet, nice buffet breakfast. No help with the luggage. Look elsewhere there are a lot nicer hotels in the area.
Hiberia is Great
Hiberia is the perfect spot for your trip to Che Bella Roma! We arrived at Hiberia 11-21-03 for a 5 day stay. No problema! Everyone was very helpful, we had a great continental breakfast every morning with plenty for everyone. Walk out the front door and to the left is the Quirnale Palace and to your right you are just 3 blks. from Piazza Venezia and many historic Roman sights. You are smack in between 2 of the greatest shopping areas in Rome, Via Nazionale & the Via Del Corso. I found the hotel quite comfortable and very clean. In my opinion I would defintely stay again at Hotel Hiberia. They set up a wonderful tour for us to the Tivoli area and we were picked up right at the front door. Just be aware that Rome traffic can be very noisy no matter where you stay!
Hats off to Danilo!
My wife and I spent 5 days in Rome at the Hotel Hiberia. We were finishing our honeymoon in Rome. I must say we were extremely disappointed with this hotel. The staff was rude and unwilling to accomodate us. We had no help with our luggage the day we left for the airport. Our room smelt as if there was a sewage leak in our room and our floor. The room was incredibly small and there was no bath tub.
There was a decent minibar and a nice bathroom. The only good things about this hotel are that its right across the street from a great snack bar and a currency exchange office. Also walking distance is the Colisseum, Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps. The Vatican is a short bus ride away. The location of the hotel is excellent but the hotel itself is horrible. Anyone who considers this hotel...please find another one in the vicinity....it has to be better.
We spent 3 days at the Hiberia in May 2003. The hotel is extremely quiet, tastefully appointed and located in a very historic section of Rome. We hardly ever saw anyone else, the breakfast was very satisfying, the staff was professional. Also, there is a wonderful and friendly snackbar/cafe across the street called Quirinale. We would absolutely stay there again.

We are in Rome and all is fabulous. The flights all went well, Emirates were sensational. George and Zoe enjoyed all the inflight entertainment and the food! We caught a black Mercedes mini van taxi with 3 others from the airport and arrived at our little hotel just after 3pm. We worked out we had been on the go for about 32 hours. We freshened up …
... It took us 45 minutes to walk in but thankfully it wasn’t too hot yet and some of the path was shaded. In the city we split up and Steve and I wandered through the markets and down the streets. We met back up with the others at a cool little embroidery place that you could choose items and have a name put on them while you waited. After this we found some quick lunch then decided to catch a taxi back to the hotel as it was 11:20 and we needed to be back at ...
... On the second floor there were paintings by Titian, Van Dyke, Reni and Rubens. Some of the religious ones weren't to our taste, but excellent in their own right. A tunnel with exhibits of marble tablets with inscriptions from graves, monuments and declaring new laws lined it, links the next building where there were some show stopper marble statues and busts. After lunch we walked to the Pantheon, a striking 2000 ...
... have had at least 2 gelato every day, and we've managed to have a few as well. Finn's favourite is lemone, Caleb's a fan of fragola and Emma loves cioccolato.
The Colosseum was a hit with the kids, they were all impressed and we only had to queue for 30 minutes to get in despite the guy selling 'fast track' tickets for 3 times the amount of the gate price telling us we'd be in line for up to 3 hours.
The food and service we've received at most restaurants has ...
... were allowed. I took a few. After this we checked out the St Peters Church. This place was bloody amazing. I've never seen such an epic building in my whole life. Just huge and beautiful with killer statues and artwork throughout. Just have to see it to appreciate it. We checked out St. Peter's Square after this and got some nice selfies hah. A nice little feed and headed back to the hotel for a siesta! We headed out looking for a nice meal and came across ...
