Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Valadier Rome
Beware the a/c
While I loved the piano bar area, the hotel itself had quite a few problems. We were there in September and had a VERY SMALL, VERY HOT room. I asked twice for someone to check the a/c for us and was told there was nothing wrong with it. The male desk clerk (front desk) was also a problem. I'm not sure if it was a cultural thing or what, but he was VERY surly with me. I asked for change to tip the bellman and he informed me they had no change. The same thing happened the next day when I asked for change to tip the waitress after breakfast. He was very polite to my husband, however. I would NOT stay there again.
great location, nice people had a nice time with the piano bar
We loved it
The rooms are not big, but very comfortable. The furniture are beautiful. The bathroom in marble is very practical. Very clean. We will definitely go back. Staff is very polite and nice. Perfect location in Rome.
Nice stay in rome
good location-small rooms but good service nice people
Won't return here
Won't stay here again. Doesn't deserve it's 4 stars. Rooms were decorated nicely but very small, felt like a cruise ship room. Air conditioner in first room didn't work, then switched room and second room didn't have hot water. When we complained they didn't seem to care.
Hotel was clean but Tight!!
Hotel was clean but very very small and hot! We had a double room which contained one bed with about a foot of walking space around the bed. We felt very clastrophic because everything was so tightly fitted. I read somewhere that this hotel was a convent once so imagine how small the rooms were. There was no escape from the smallness of this hotel. Even the terrace garden was like a coffin, because the room was 10 by 10 with a high fence. The bathroom was marble but the shower was the size of a closet. So the water always turned off when we washed our hair. The view was non existent. We had two windows that faced brick walls so we felt like we were in jail.
Booked A Double, Got A Single
Breakfast at the hotel was awesome! We didn't realize until we left that we have been given a small single room, despite paying for a double. We left for one night to take a side trip to Florence and had confirmed with the hotel that we were booked for 2 nights upon our return; however, just before we left for Florence, they told us if we didn't pay for the night we WEREN't staying, we wouldn't have a room upon our return. We felt very betrayed and taken advantage of.
great hotel, very friendly, had a great room (bed was a little hard!) great views, we had a full size fridge and a washer/dryer in our room!
wow! nice balcony also, we stayed in a double room. roof restuarant very good. also il brillo parlante restuarant next to it has AWESOME food (pizza is the best I ever had), try the chocolate cake, you wont be sorry!

... up the Roman Republic. In setting up this new Republic, measures were taken to ensure that Rome would never come under the rule of a Rex again. Instead, Rome would be ruled by two consuls and the Senate. Brutus and Collatinus were naturally elected to become the first consuls in 509 BCE, which is commonly acknowledged as the year in which the Republic began.
... of scaffolding (Erik you could have warned me geez), so had to soften the blow by buying some gelati to feel better. It's definitely hot in Rome, and it's the perfect way to cool down. We saw the Spanish steps, the pathetic excuse of a trevi fountain, the pantheon, a really cool palace that's massive, the imperial forum, and the ultimate ending of the colloseum. It was incredible to see. We had to be super alert for our tour guides sake because in Italy they only like ...

After the steps its off to the Trevi Fountain to take more photos and make a wish. We follow the Roma map we have been given by Olga and quite enjoy also taking pictures of the backstreets. So many interesting sights, colourful unique bikes propped up against rustic walls, cool street lighting, lovely flower beds outside of picturesque window frames. Did I mention that Italy is ...
... delight we were able to buy some sandwiches - it is amazing what you miss when you are away from home. Our sandwiches were very short lived however as a mother cat and her kittens immediately descended on us. We are truly hopeless animal tragics although she and her kittens looked in good condition, needless to say they got the "lions share" of our lunch.

All of the food was amazing and the atmosphere of the restaurant was nice. We then headed back to the apartment to pack up some of our things for the train ride tomorrow. Rome has been amazing and I will miss the amazing buildings and life of the city. Next ...
