Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Victoria Rome
While the Victoria has an excellent location, just minutes from the Spanish Steps, their staff was not welcoming nor particularly polite. The rooms were small but well appointed. The baths were great! And Rome was wonderful!
Our travel agent had suggested this hotel to us as an alternative to some of the more pricey options we were considering closer to the Spanish Steps, etc.
We were delightfully surprised! Our room was spacious (we had a larger room on the 4th floor with two large windows), comfortable bed and modernized bathroom. We were a bit out of the way in terms of being close to most attractions in Rome (minus the Borghese Gardens), but we are both young and in great shape, so we enjoyed the walks.
The staff was really friendly and helpful.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend the hotel to anyone considering a stay in Rome.
Lovely hotel in quiet corner
Have just returned from a short trip to Rome and stayed at the Hotel Victoria. We were a party of five and found this hotel to be excellent.
The public areas/dining room etc were traditional and very tastefully decorated and the staff could not have been more helpful. Both our rooms (althought different sizes) were full of character, clean and well equipped. Although not the most centrally located hotel in Rome I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone. Ate in the restaurant most nights (food very good) and found the daily set menu to be very good value.
Too far out of the way
Hotel is classified as a 4 Star hotel. Although, I requested a larger room, as recommended by a Trip Advisor reviewer, I was given a standard double. (Room 405 or 406 are bigger). The room was average in size and had all standard conveniences. Hotel reception staff are helpful. The reception areas are very nice as is the bar and restaurant, although the bar closed one night at 11.30pm.
Breakfast is served until 11am. but on our 2nd morning the hot breakfast was gone at 10.15am. The staff gave the impression that late risers are an inconvenience. The hotel is 10 mins from the nearest metro (Barberini) downhill and 20 mins walk to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Other attractions are further away. The restaurants in the immediate vacinity are expensive. Good dining at a reasonable cost (Trastavere or Ghetto) is a long way away. Hotel cost was €120 per night for a double was average and was organised through the Aer Lingus Hotel website. Through other WEB sites or with Hotel itself is a lot more expensive.
The hotel is located in an inconvenient part of the city and is of standard value for what you get. A more central location might be more suitable for tourists and sightseing visitors.
Room was terrible
The hotel is fine, a long walk from most of the sights, but quiet. Our room, however, was awful. The airconditioning consisted of a large portable machine, which was extremely noisy (so impossible to sleep with it on) and which only worked for an hour at a time (and then only slightly!). It was actually cooler in the corridor, when we emerged in the mornings after having had no sleep. The shower was also separate from the bathroom and was simply a converted cupboard! This was certainly not a four star hotel room. If you do decide to stay here, check on the room you will get.
Lovely hotel with top-notch staff
Two families traveled together and stayed at the Victoria. The rooms are all different, so you can have a large one or a small one -- they have quite a bit of personality.We found the staff to be wonderful. I lost an item at the airport and not only did the hotel staff persist in trying to locate it, but when they found it, they had it delivered to me. I was very impressed with this hotel. The restaurant serves excellent food and we found it to be quiet and convenient to everything: the underground, the Via Veneto and the Spanish Steps. I highly recommend it.
Nice out of the way Hotel
This is a nice, quiet hotel next to the old wall of Rome and near the Borgese Gardens, Borgese Museum and the faded glory of the Via Veneto.
A nice average sized room and bath was very clean and well provided.
There were very polite and helpful staff at the desk and in the breakfast room. A nice comfortable lobby and bar completed the public area. A typical continental breakfast was provided. Its a little out of the way for central Rome, but there is a well staffed taxi stand at the Via Venato two blocks from the hotel, at least one reasonable and good neighborhood restaurant within two blocks, and many vastly overpriced but excellent restaurants on the Via Venato. Harry's Bar and Restaurant on the Venato was expensive, but quirky and sophisticated with a friendly and interesting crowd.
A little bit off the main area of Via Venetto, but great hotel. Big rooms for Italy standards, especially the bathrooms. The bathrooms were big, all brand new, lots of ameneties in the rooms. Great air conditioning and hot water. Not all 4 star hotels in Italy we stayed at had as good of air conditioning and hot water.
Rooms are small but quiet, room amenities were above average for Rome
Enjoyed my stay
It was my first trip to Europe. The room was small but I guess that's the norm for Europe. The hotel was clean and nicely appointed. It was a great affordable hotel but not in the fancy caliber. Good location 15 minutes to Spanish Steps (esclator to Spanish Steps) and 10 minutes more to Trevi Fountain. Lots of restaurants/banks/shopping and HardRock close by.
Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet included was very good with lots of selections. Had dinner there two times and was good, had the special of the day with wine for $26 each. I spent a week there with a tour but the hotel helped book other city tours for us too. Questions just ask.

Two days of the most incredible weather, food, and history. We've been on four tours in two days- all walking tours. We've walked miles which alleviates our guilt of eating so much rich food.
From the Vatican to the Colosseum, the Catacombs to the artwork of Bernini and Raffaello, the history here is amazing. It's not the kind you care …
... No, they have others in the area..not if no hot water and no power I chimed in. Point taken. "Mam .we see you are with us for a long stay". I suggested they could put us in hotel...meaning until power fixed. They took heed particularly cos I think I mentioned the hot water issue not once but twice in the discussion. Two nights because that's all they had. That was fine by me..happy to go to apartment if there was electricity working. There was the offer with ...
... between this and Testaccio neighborhood, to go visit on one of the nights. This is basically a good 1/2 km from the "Policlinico" station, and is really close to the university. Bunch of bars/pubs spread out over a couple of streets. Well there's really 1 bar which had 100 + local student-types drinking away, but it's not a "social" atmosphere at all, and people just stick to themselves. Plus, no one speaks English. I would recommend Campe De Fiori over San ...
... taken on the steps surrounded by hundreds of gawking tourists. How romantic. On the way up the steps, Adam and I had a contest to see how many times we could photobomb people. Adam won, just. He did an awesome one, standing right behind someone with his finger up his nose to the knuckle. Top effort that one! We decided we'd try to get a hop-on-hop-off bus, but do you think we could find a stop? There were plenty going past or ...
... along the sides. He had no chance but kept on trying. There was an enormous build up of traffic, horns blaring and people getting out of their cars to yell at him. He eventually moved along the street a bit. I'm not sure what his intentions were from there, but he was there half an hour later still, with a bus load of passengers. It was amusing to watch, drawing a nice little crowd of onlookers. I am amazed at the parallel parking in the city. Cars pull into such tight little ...
