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!

Make sure you book everything you want to do before you get here.
Woke up early(ish) so I could phone and try and book tickets on a walking tour of the Colosseum at night. As you can probably guess, there is no availability for when we're here so we'll have to "make do" with a tour during the day. I've also managed to book us in for two tours of the Forum. Lucky I have two ears :-D.
I was also hoping we could get into Gallerie Borghese. Strike two, so ...
... and observing the chapel and several tombs of influential Italians including Victor Emmanuel II and Rapheal. The dome structure was set amongst all of these modern buildings so it was definitely quite unique. It reminded me of Boston, just fast forward several generations. From there we headed to the iconic Trevi Fountain we had people literally all around it making it very difficult to enjoy. But I did get a chance to take pictures and toss my coin ...
... next four years at least, and our next reunion could not be until after that! It's very rare that you meet people who you can be yourself around. We got each others humor, and didn't have to fake anything. It's going to be tough knowing that we are going to be halfway around the world from each other, but I know sometime in the future we will get to see them again! I realize that our trip to Rome was not filled with as many tourist attractions as it ...
... the streets, marvelling at all the closed-up shops and the people spilling out of the busy restaurants. Funnily enough, just because everything was shut, I felt like I needed a bit of retail therapy (I’m difficult like that). Close to our apartment we saw a jewellery shop open. Joanna and I both found rings we adored, and bought them for each other as Christmas gifts.
We walked up the marble staircase into our ...
... because no photographs are allowed. We enjoyed a pleasant drive through the countryside to the outskirts of the Rome. We had an early afternoon flight the following day so decided to stay at an airport hotel rather than staying in Rome. So now it's time to say arrivederci to Rome and Europe as we head off to South ...
