      Historical Traveler Reviews Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & SPA Rome

      A Slice of Paradise in Rome

      from

      We just returned from the Grand Hotel Parco Dei Principi and loved it! This hotel is definatley 5 star, and I feel that it is often overlooked. The rooms are huge, with beautiful views of the Borghese gardens. We stayed in a suite that was very comfortable. The hotel has a large a beautiful pool, as well as lush gardens and fruit trees, that are kept clean and sparkling. The pool was the perfect place to cool off in after a long day of site-seeing. Although the hotel is not directly in the city center, it is actually part of what makes it so charming. However, it is close enough that we could walk everywhere, and only had to take a taxi once. We walked from the Spanish Steps back to our hotel in about 20 minutes, and that was with detours along the way. The dining is superb. Breakfast is great with various cheeses, meats, eggs, sweet rolls, etc. The hotel's restaurant is delicious, but very expensive. The Italians are known for taking a long time to eat; probably spending about three hours to eat a meal, which I respect. But on the night we chose to eat at the hotel's restaurant, the service was very slow, and it took about 30 minutes for us to get our check. Regardless, I love the Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi. This hotel deserves much more recommendation for what it's worth!

      Nice Hotel

      from

      This is a very nice hotel located in the embassy area of Rome, next to the Villa Borghese park. The rooms are large enough, very clean, and our view of the Vatican across the park was fabulous. It was quieter than the city center, but still was within walking distance of most of the major sites if you are fit. Taxis are readily available if you prefer. The staff were all very nice, and helpful even if they did not all speak English. Don't let the modern facade fool you--the interior is actually quite charming. The hotel restaurant was very good the one dinner we ate there. The bar was overpriced for its quality. We traveled with another couple, but there were many families staying there. We would definitely stay there again.

      Beautiful hotel near the park

      from

      I stayed here for two nights. I could not complain about a thing. The bathrooms were clean and updated. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. I was dreading european hotels, but this one was a surprise. Well worth the money. It is a little far from downtown, but an easy cab ride away. It's a beautiful walk around the park if you decide to walk to downtown Rome. Close to several museums and the zoo.

      Loved Parco Dei Principi

      from

      I traveled to Rome with my elderly mother and stayed at Parco Dei Principi. The decor was beautiful, the room was immaculate and the staff was wonderful and the food was impecable. It is located in a quite section of the city, yet it is convienient to everything. Loved it!!!

      Excellent hotel

      from

      The Parco di Principi is an excellent hotel. We stayed in late March 2004. Building works were going on in front of the hotel, but did not disturb us. The hotel is about 20 minutes' walk from the centre of Rome, through the Borghese park, which always felt safe during the day. The rooms were a little smaller than we expected for a 5 star hotel. I would recommend asking for a room facing the Vatican and with a balcony (not all have one). Food in the hotel restaurant was excellent.

      A good hotel but events took a turn for the worse...

      from

      My friends and I checked in to the hotel to celebrate a 24th birthday of one of my old schoolfriends who had recently moved to Rome. We were all very impressed with the hotel, had a sixth floor room and were all looking forward to a great couple of days in Rome.

      Unfortunately things took a turn for the worse early on Saturday morning, after we had been out and enjoyed a lovely evening, with a much documented fire, being on the sixth floor we lost everything and managed to help others by letting them onto our fortunate huge balcony. Three people tragically lost their lives, smoke engulfed the entire building. It marred a trip which we were all looking forward to and shocked some friends of mine.

      The hotel is a grand hotel and I hope that it manages to get back on its feet again. Would recommend this place, we were moved to the Sheraton which incidentally is also a fabulous place.

      Amenities are about the only nice thing here

      from

      I have been all over Europe, and I have stayed in many luxury hotels both here and abroad. The Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi is one of the worst. First, the location is bad. It's so far away from any of the city's main attractions, that you have to walk at least a few miles to get to anything worth seeing. Second, the lobby is so overdone and abnormally large that you feel as if you've walked onto an empty movie set about to begin filming some cheesy 1970's wannabe-wealthy film.

      Third, the staff is rude and inattentive to the point where you feel as if you're inconveniencing them every time you ask for something.

      Fourth, the rooms are gaudy and uncomfortable. The only thing going for this hotel is the swimming pool. But while I was there, they had a major construction project going on right next door. When you weren't ignoring the jackhammers rattling away, you were watching the crane to make sure it didn't tip over on you. There are over 700 hotels in Rome.

      Any other one will do.

      We Loved it

      from

      I had not been to Rome, Italy in 30 years and my wife had never been to Europe. People were telling my wife not to wear her good jewelry and not carry a pocketbook or fanny pack. She was scared before we even left home.Rome was great. We stayed at the Parco Dei Principi Hotel just north of Villa Borghese. The hotel was great, the staff was excellent and friendly.While we did not venture too far from the hotel at night, we walked all over Rome during the day. I did not want to take taxi's because I wanted to see and live the experience, so we walked; from the hotel to the coloseum and everywhere in between. We had a fabulous time and did not hear about, see or have anything bad happen. Of course, no matter where you go, you need to be aware of your surroundings.We are going back in 18 months with our children as their graduation presents.

      Super Elegant

      from

      I stayed at this hotel in 2001 on my first trip to Rome. It was the most elegant hotel I have ever stayed in. The overall atmosphere of the hotel made me feel like royalty. The location of the hotel is great too. It backs up to a beautiful park & is within a 5-10 minutes walk from almost everything. Definitely recommended!!!

      Delightful

      from

      My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Parco Dei Principi in January 2002 on our first trip to Italy. The room and the view from our balcony were wonderful, the breakfast buffet was very good, and the concierge service was excellent. The concierge set us up with a tour, recommended a terrific restaurant, and even helped us find a laundry.

      ... where St Peter was killed and buried, outside of the city of Rome. Also the spot where Nero built a Circus. We walked through lots of tiny streets, and it was really quiet...apparently not much traffic on a Sunday. Passed near the Piazza Navona on our way to the Pantheon. It was built by Emperor Augustus 2000 years ago and was a temple, then a church. It is still used for services. It has no electricity, the only light coming from the door and the 27 foot ...

The fountain was caged all around and all the water had been drained, however, people were still throwing coins for good luck into the empty pool at the base. One lady attempting to throw her coin over the fence managed to score it directly into the man's face standing in front of her. He was not happy. On the other hand, Amy was very happy at such an occurrence. It was a shame the fountain was not ...

      ... I only ate half of mine I was that full of carbs today! We got back to the hotel, had a slight rest before heading back on the metro towards the colosseum. We always seem to meet interesting characters on the metro. Tonight was a man and young girl drinking a bottle of wine from their plastic cups. They weren't exactly what you'd call high class.. And when a seat became available.. They sat right next to Pete!! Lovely! We made it to the colosseum and walked straight in - no queue! ...

      ... risotto was served on platters and there was enough for twice as many people! It was so creamy and had so much flavor I was glad that it tasted so good because I was a little unsure if the Gorgonzola cheese. After we finished that plate we were given new plates and utensils for the meat to be served, like I said you never eat pasta and meat at the same time! The meatballs.....Wow! I could have eaten a million of them, they were so moist and flavorful it was fantastic. ...

      Tues: Glad to be leaving the big city, we arrived Venice by way of train. Took a water taxi to the main canal then made our way on foot 1/2 mile or so looking for the hotel. Wow, what a navigation nightmare! No streets, therefore no street signs - just little alleys and bridges. After settling in to the small but adequate room, we were anxious for our first walk about. Found a nice little watering hole and tried the most popular local ...
