    Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental de la Ville Rome

    Great location and friendly staff- but pricey

    from

    Stayed here in April 2004. At 349 euro per room per night, one has to be severe so it's fair to say the size of the room was not up to the price. It was clean and nicely decorated but the en-suite bathroom was fitted out rather cheaply for the hotel category and there were none of the special touches you'd expect. That said, there were some good points. Best was the barman- a real character! We had a nightcap in the bar every night and couldn't understand why hardly anyone else ever did. Drinks just a bit ex pensive but not too bad for the hotel category- just avoid single malt whiskies. We unwittingly paid 25 euro for a glass of Lagavulin- outrageous!- the whole bottle wouldn't be 50 euro, even in Italy! The concierge was wonderfully helpful- we gave him a couple of restaurant names every morning and by the time we returned each evening we'd have a booking. He was also great at arranging bus tours and advance bookings for attractions that require them. Location was great and safe with lots of restaurants in the area. So over all, very enjoyable hotel, with friendly staff, if you're happy to pay the price!

    A magical honeymoon

    from

    A great hotel and staff near the Spainish Steps. We were treated like "movie stars" when we arrived in early May on our honeymoon. The room was recently redone and had a great patio overlooking the interior courtyard. The buffet breakfast could not be better with a wide selection of fruit, meats, juice, yogert....We are looking forward to our return visit to the Intercontinental De La Ville! It should be rated 5 stars.

    Good value for money

    from

    Just returned from two stays at the de la Ville. Nothing but positive things to say. Old-fashioned services delivered with great personal attention in an extremely comfortable setting. Sheets changed every day. Recommend sixth floor front rooms with terrace views over Rome and the Spanish Steps or, if absolute quiet preferred, then the rooms facing the interior courtyard and back garden. Splendid breakfast in large airy dining room or outside in courtyard well worth it. Many staff have worked there for years and demonstrate their loyalty to the hotel through their attentiveness.

    Not worth it - nothing special

    from

    I booked this room through expedia for our last night in Rome over the holidays. I chose the Intercontinental because I trusted their brand. I was disappointed. The hotel offers nothing out of the ordinary. The rooms were very small, even for Europe and especially for the price.

    There was no view and no amenenties. The staff was very arrogant and treated me and my teen-aged son like we were interloping backpackers.

    The concierge wrote down the street name for our restaurant but not the address and so we and the cab driver had to drive up and down looking for it (a fabulous vietnamese restaurant - probably the only one in Rome - we were tired of pasta). This was after fantastic experiences at the Hilton Calvalieri in Rome and the Hilton Sorrento (on frequent guest points -- we were treated like royalty). I will think twice about staying at an Intercontinental again. In general, they seem like they are on the decline and don't offer anything special.

    A Magical Weekend in Rome

    from

    From the moment we walked in the door it seemed that every staff member knew our name. Service was incredible and we were pampered for 3 days. We were given our choice of newspapers and asked for the NY Times. We were so surprised to receive a full photocopy of the NY Times, not the international edition but the NYC edition. Champagne, fruit and mineral water were waiting for us in our room. Our room was beautiful and elegant, but small, and the bathroom, which was almost the same size as the room, was elegant. We had robes, slippers, a scale, great dryer, make up mirror, etc. Nothing was missing.Our 7th floor room had a 30 foot terrace with dining table and chairs and lounge chairs, overlooked all of Rome. I wanted to move our bed onto the terrace to not miss a moment of this incredible view. The location of the hotel is wonderful, at the top of the Spanish Steps, within walking distance to everywhere..great restaurants, shopping, trevi fountain, piazza navona, etc. We didn't want to leave. Everything about this hotel is 5 star elegance.

    High marks for the InterContinental!

    from

    Outstanding staff, service and hotel. My wife and I were extremely impressed as we arrived in Rome to find our reservation at another Rome hotel was not honored and we literally showed on the door step of the Inter-Continental desperately seeking a room for two nights. The staff was excellent. They mmediately gave us a status of their rooms and explained very clearly that getting a room anywhere in Rome on the eve of Mother Teresa's beatification might be difficult but they would do their best. Within 30 minutes they provided a room at the standard rate. A real vacation saver. Highest marks!

    Very nice, but is it worth the big bucks?

    from

    Difficult not to give this hotel the top rating: terrific location, helpful staff, nice room (though small - it is Rome), etc. But is it worth a few hundred more a night than other comparable hotels? I don't think so. And what happened to the rooftop terrace bar? They've got a nice one with a great view, but it was locked up during our stay with no signs of opening soon.

    Nice Hotel

    from

    Not a spectacular hotel, but a very good one; room and bath very clean and comfortable. Great location 200 feet from the top of the Spanish Steps; right next door to the Hassler. Breakfast in the morning was good. Staff very good. Provided me a computer to check e-mail, etc. I'm staying there again.

    Not worth it...

    from

    Stayed at the Intercontinental near the Spanish Steps in May 2001. Location was pretty good but thats about it. The rooms were old and extremely small for the rate and I was robbed by the maid. I was gone for 5 minutes to get some coffee before checking out of the hotel and was robbed of my wallet and camera. I know its the maid because they watch you leave the room at all times in the hallway. The hotel staff basically treated me like a doofus. The lobby and checkin area was terribly run down and I will never stay there again.

    Taking advantage of our great location today I got up early, grabbed my camera and headed to the Spanish Steps. How great it is to see this city as she wakes up. Of course there are always people on the steps but not so many at this time of day. Before going down all those steps I walk around the pathway from my hotel and enjoy the view over the …

    It was an early start today and a big job to get our suitcases down the stairs (no elevators here), and to get ready for our cab to the train station. Being just after the end of the month my phone card had run out so Susan had to run around the corner to our salon to ask Guiseppe to order a cab for us. He was so gracious and willing to help, what …

    ... sorry girls, you'll have to go back and look for other options. And yes, our luggage was somewhere out there too, and we could only hope it will catch the same plane as we do (when or if that happens). That was the point where we were told about 'the main' client service desk, where we finally got the food and tickets - through Brussels this time. It's Belgium where we started to get good news first time during the day - first, ...

    ... around me. Fat chance in Italy!

    The following day wasn’t quite as arduous, but was equally interesting, and as a bonus it enabled me to tick another country off the list without even leaving the city. When you visit the tiny country known as Vatican City there are really only two things you want to do: See St Peter’s Basilica and visit the Vatican Museums.

    ... throw of this hotel, so they need to beef up their service. Anyway, there is an antique elevator, surrounded by a cage, that lets off right at our room....it's pretty cool....the guy didn't tell us about it, either...we discovered it on our own....anyway, you have to open first the wooden door of the elevator and then the cage door to get out...and if you don't close all of the doors (they don't close automatically), the elevator is stuck on your floor until someone ...
