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!

... The floor is slightly domed to allow water to run away easy as well as that there are several small holes along the outside of the floor so that water can run outside. It was amazing to see. The Pantheon was originally built in honour of all the Olympian Gods, it was called Pantheon because it is a Greek Name meaning "Of all the Gods".
Next was Trevi Fountain, this was a little disappointing as it was ...

For our last day, we wandered the streets and alleyways again and found the Capuchin Friary - thank you Cara McKenzie for the recommendation. This unassuming building ...
... welcoming. We have the best pizza we've had so far, Jonny had seafood and I had a rocket and tomato, fab!! Onwards through Rome, we see lots of old churches and monuments. We have a look in some shops and then reach the military museum which is a fabulous building. Outside there is tomb of an unknown soldier which is guarded 24 hours a day by 2 soldiers. We have a look inside the museum for half an hour, it's nice to get out of the heat! We come ...
Today we spent the better part of the day wandering around the Vatican! I'm pretty sure the Vatican museum people are onto us tourists...we just want to see the Sistine Chapel, but they insist on snaking you through this crazy maze that takes hours to push through until finally, they spill you into the Sistine! Finally!!! By that time, I've seen so much art that my head is spinning! It really was quite spectacular though! You ...
... for our flight to Rome was dangerously close and we were nowhere near being on it. Then poor Jeff was picked for a random search and had to open his bag and everything in it was given a good going over. Once the amiable Nord who was doing the checking was satisfied that Jeff wasn’t a character of suspicion he waved him on his way.
Next it was through immigration as we were entering the country from outside the EU. It was here that ...
