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!

... We stuck it out longer than some others but just could not go through a further 1hr 15min of absolute boredom. Roy made the comment of the day with saying "Uh-oh TraciBProserpine won't be leaving this a good review" referring to our Trip Advisor username.
We spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the Foro Traiano and having a fun time pretending we were roman gladiators battling our way through the city ending back outside the Colosseum on sunset to ...
... of Italy. Most of the ruins I had been keen on seeing were all in Roma and down South and now it was time to head North into Tuscany where all the foodie dreams are made of. Welcome to the center of the world in terms of biscotti, panforte and wine. So the little introduction of relaxation back in Roma was welcomed. I actually roomed with a couple of lovely South Korean girls who gave me an injection of ann-young ha-seyos (if I was missing it at all) and a little banter about bibimbahp ...
... activities. No stone has been left un-turned and I am so thankful for that! I am not complaining by all means, but I have just given up on the idea of true rest. I go to bed late and wake up early. I have walked more in the past couple weeks than I think I ever have and my brain is always being bombarded with information and ideas. I am a sponge, just trying to soak it all in the best I can. I ...
Travel day :- nothing much happened, just a long bus journey! Arrived at Camping Roma at 6pm, had dinner at camp site followed by drinks outside Kristina's (fellow traveler on Busabout) cabin with Ocean, Rinata (both guides), Daviday (driver) and ...
... was pretty easy for me to do. I was still dealing with my foot injury from Portugal and could not wear shoes. The temperature was probably 30 degrees and I was wearing sandals. My feet have definitely been warmer. I actually saw a few people point down towards my feet as they passed by us with puzzled looks on their faces. I could imagine the conversations in the car. "Did you see that poor homeless man trying to hitchhike? He doesn't have shoes ...
