This hotel had the best breakfast. Fresh fruit, all types of milks, nuts and juices. Too bad it was the day we were leaving and I didn't want to eat too much. Room needed a paint job, it was pretty banged up.

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Leonardo da Vinci Rome
Very comfortable hotel
If you are seeking romance, look elsewhere. This is a business hotel and fairly businesslike. However, if you want a reasonably priced, well-located hotel with decent sized rooms (not always what you get in European cities), heat and A/C, a great tub for soaking, and lots of hot water this will work well. It's location is a 10-20 minute walk from most of the major tourist sites and the action of the central area, but it's also on the edge of a residential neighborhood so you have a flavor of what it's like to live in Rome. In-room safes existed, but did not work. Breakfast was plentiful and hearty (ham, cheese, eggs, sausage) in addition to rolls and pastries), though not inspired.
If you hit the timing right there are free copies of the IHT. Staff were fine, but not set up to suggest activities, make your dinner reservations, etc. so bring your guidebook -- Rome is not hard to deal with.
Jolly at the Jolly!
The Jolly Hotel, Leonardo was centrally located in Rome. The room was clean, decor was modern and the breakfast buffet (hot/cold) was excellent. For the price you can not go wrong! Great way to see Rome, with out spending the big $$ on hotels on Via Veneto.
Check out Trastevere, for the great night life!
Not bad at all!!
I just got back from a trip to Rome on 3/16/04 and I stayed at this Jolly hotel. This place was not bad at all. It was not as big as I thought and the rooms are not as big as in the US but they are not small. One thin they don't have is an iron make sure you bring one. They have this device that press clothing but for the life of me in the 7 nights I was there I couldn't get it to work and it is very slow for it to warm up so make sure you bring an iron. The staff will help you and they are very friendly. Very few are not so friendly but helpful. One advice, Do not go on a site seeing tour on a bus in Rome, they suck, If you must, do not go on the tour they recommend if you want to go on a tour bus. Go with the Greenline tours. I do recommend to take a tour bus of the city if you are real tired of walking or if it is your first day in and you are not ready to explore on your own. The hotel is in a residential neighborhood and it is a nice area. You are not going to be near all the major tourist areas but I think that was better. We got to walk around Rome in areas that not many tourists don't go to and see how Italians live. You can honestly just about walk everywhere from this location. If you go to Rome you better be ready to walk and walk and walk. The hotel is close to some of the Major shopping areas on Via Del Corso witch is a major shopping area and with places to eat. You must go to a place called Pizza Ria. On Via Di Ripetta. They have the best pizza and dessert it is also near this hotel. This hotel offers a breakfast bar and it is full breakfast and was real good. Have fun in Rome and make sure to catch a soccer match it was real fun!
Clean, quiet, and central
On the strength of reviews on this site, and location, we booked in during February for a week's visit to Rome. The hotel staff was helpful with all our requests, our room excellent, the breakfasts perfect for touristing around the city, and the location ideal to access all parts of the city we were interested in. I would not hesitate in booking into the same hotel again. A good value for the price, especialy the out of season rate via expedia.
Very good find!
We booked this hotel in December, 2003, largely based on the reviews here. It was clean, hospitable, quiet, convenient, and a good value -- an excellent find!
Great Hotel. Big Room, clean and quiet. Staff was very helpful with directions, phones etc. Internet was available which was a big help.
You think you are in a faraway location when you arrive, but as you get your footing you realize you are in the middle of everything. You can walk everywhere from there. Received a great package with expedia and would definately stay there again and again.
We just stayed here the first week of June 03. The service was great.The rooms were large and very clean. I appreciated the large comfortable beds in a quiet hotel. Would definetely stay there again the location was great, we walked to all the sites. And the price was a good deal for Rome.
Clean, quiet and modern
We stayed at the hotel for a week during Easter 2003. The hotel is on the west bank fo Tiber but close to the river. About five minutes walk east to Piazza di Popolo, about 10 minutes west to the Vatican and 10-15 minutes south to Piazza Navone. In other words a surprisingly good location. The hotel is in a new building, reasonably large rooms, everything clean and in good working order, decent breakfast in a sunlit room facing the street. Quiet during the night and a decent neightbourhood, I think. Good and polite service in several languages.

This morning I asked the helper lady what her name is & found out it is Luciana, what a beautiful name. I was going to miss her, she took such good care of me & was always smiling.
I had to multi-task this morning; eat, shower, get dressed & finish packing. Check out was 10:30am, which was perfect because I wanted to walk to …
This is our last day of Italy! Following the Tiber Valley to reach Orvieto, perched high atop a volcanic rock. Here we tasted pastries at a local pasticceria and browsed through the many shops in the lanes off Piazza del Duomo. We also visited the San Brizio Chapel. Returned to Rome in the late afternoon and had our farewell dinner :-( It was at …
... metro system down but remember that close to 80,000 people were all going to make their way to St. Peter’s Square that morning. The ride to Termini went without a hitch. The walk to the luggage check was quite a distance. It was not quick, but it worked out and lightened our load considerably. Now back to the Metro to ride back to the Ottaviano stop. This time the subways were much more crowded and everyone was headed to the same stop. So each time ...
... wares." Summoned up our experience in Rome...tasteless. We must have driven for seven hours that evening in an effort to get away from Roma, eventually stopping at a truck rest station where we watched the Netherlands versus Argentina. I showed my protest by not drinking the Italian beer and choosing to drink a Danish brew. Very proud of the way the two of us handled this situation. From here on in, it's Australian olive oil and pasta for me. It's called the boot of Europe, we saw it more as the ...

We headed for the train station after snapping a million photos of ancient Rome. My tour group thanked me for our guided tour and sent emails to their kids at home about their fun time in Rome with a young couple who could be their kids. Our train was late getting ...
