In the exclusive world of luxury Roman hospitality the Grand Hotel Plaza enjoys one of the best city centre locations in Rome. Situated in the historical centre of Rome only a few short metres from world famous Roman squares such Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps), Piazza della Rotonda (The Pantheon) and Piazza del Popolo. The Plaza Hotel is also the ideal departure point for sightseeing with many of Rome's major historical sites only a few minutes walk away. Enjoy memorable walks to the nearby Trevi Fountain (7 minutes), Pantheon (7 minutes) and the Spanish Steps (3 minutes). Alternatively why not enjoy a romantic walk through the Villa Borghese park and gardens (10 minutes) which is open all year round and is ideal for an early morning jog.
As soon as you pass through the swing doors of the Grand Hotel Plaza you will be spellbound by the sheer variety of shops that line both sides of the pedestrianised Via del Corso probably the most popular shopping street in Rome. Take the first left upon exiting the hotel and you are in the world famous luxurious boutique shopping street Via dei Condotti which contains the flagship store for every major Italian designer label including Gucci, Armani, Prada, Versace and Dolce and Gabbana.
"location is everything!!"
Spent a few days this past December with my two teenage daughter, so location is everything to me. Grand Old Hotel, the Lounge is even more breathtaking than in the photos!! All the staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms are fine, nice size, with comfy beds and kept very clean. That having been said, the rooms are nothing spectacular for what you are paying, and lacks little details like a coffee maker. TV was also not great. Would have been nice to have something small to welcome us, like a small fruit basket, etc. But again, when you only have a few days to visit an amazing city like Rome, it comes down to the location!! Piazza de Spagna is a 5 minute walk, Trevi Fountain 15min, plus many other Piazzas and the most amazing shopping district is all around you!! You don't have to waste time on trains, and buses, etc. The Colosseum was about 30minutes away, so we popped into a taxi for that, as well as the Vatican. Lots of little shops/cafes to have a lovely cappuccino in the morning, as well as Pastries. The hotel had an amazing breakfast, but it was a bit too pricey for us.
Yes! It's perfect for families! We stayed in a double connecting room. On entry there was a bathroom and one bedroom to the right and one to the left - perfect for 2. Adults and 2 children. You can't beat the location of this hotel . It is right on the shopping strip with taxis across the road and great places to eat. Casually browse around to the Spanish steps. The hotel wall tapestries are divine and the hotel is quiet and all class. I really loved this hotel and would stay here everytime- it's beautiful 💜
"Mix of old world Italian charm & golden age of hollywood"
My husband & I just returned from our wonderful honeymoon in Rome. Last week, we stayed at this hotel which was not lacking in historic beauty & elegance. It felt like stepping back in time, you could easily see some well known director doing a film on location here. The concierge was pleasant, helpful & multilingual and on first sight it's a lovely hotel & location is good. You can literally walk a few steps, look down the street next to the hotel & see the Spanish Steps sitting at the end. I mulled over stayed here due to reviews on here that complained about street noise keeping them awake. I'm glad we took a chance & booked because we did NOT experience this at all. maybe it was because of the time of year & not being peak tourist season...although it was a lot of tourists there even still. Or maybe the staff just put us in a quiet part of the hotel. Our room was on the 3rd fl. facing a courtyard.. I did roam on the top floor for some pictures of the terrace & still did not hear any street noise moving through the hotel. We opted not to pay for breakfast here because we wanted to eat at our leisure & try different places , plus we couldn't see eating 25 euro in breakfast every morning. Our room was clean, comfortable and charming, but simple. The bathroom looked like it was not long renovated & was very nice but still keeping in tune with the style of the hotel. The rest of the room could use a little more effort in providing the same ambience & maybe update the closets. . Although you don't really see a closet, it tells a story about the half-hearted effort of updating the room. The bed was comfortable & firm & the tv only had 2 English news channels. We travel a lot so we are used to this & brought our laptop to watch Netflix. The tv remote was universal so there was no using a fire stick or hooking up the laptop to tv...couldn't change the input setting. The only real complaint was when my husband requested ice from the bar each night (no ice machines on floors). They expeditiously delivered it to our room & of course my husband tipped generously. However, on our 3rd night the same lady brought down the ice & reluctantly informed my husband that a different manager was on duty for the bar & wanted her to inform him that it would be a 5 euro charge for the ice. He refused to pay it & wasn't going to take the ice but the lady still left it with him & didn't push the issue. Other than this ridiculous incident we had no other issues & I wouldn't fault the entire staff/hotel for one idiot. I loved this hotel & would definitely want to stay again but in one of the newly renovated rooms that's shown on their website. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Rome.
This is not your usual hotel. It is an old converted theatre. The faded opulence is definitely a bit threadbare. But it has a great charm about it. The location is perfect as well being situated right in the middle of just about anything. Personally I loved it and will be going back. But don't be fooled by the 5*L bracket. It would be that if a vast amount of money was spent on it. But the rooms are generous, and the setting I think lovely. But it is old fashioned, quirky and bit lacking. Except it must be said for the staff hwo were to a man and women wonderful
"5 Star "L" Hotel.......2 Star Weekend"
I believed that the "L" was for luxury, but I could find it in the Grand Hotel Plaza. When we arrived, the reception area, main lounge and staff were excellent, but it was all down hill from there.... We went to our rooms, on floor 5, via the two lifts, both of which had a distinct smell of sewers through out the weekend....have the staff all lost their sense of smell' The bedrooms were tiny, with barely room to get around the bed, and furnishings that had seen much better days. The missing "luxuries" included...no air-con, no "turn down" service, no complimentary water, no dressing gowns, no iron......and no adaptors when requested!!!! The bathroom was "tired" to say the least, with shower facilities that would embarrass a 2-3 star hotel......a bath with a very short "shower curtain" which constantly allowed water spill onto the floor! The bar staff were pleasant and helpful, until 12pm when they closed and turned off most of the lights in the main seating area.... Breakfast was fine, but it was over seen by Mr Grumpy who made Basil Fawlty look helpful.... You may think that I am very harsh, but these are the views of our party of 8, who go to Rome regularly. We shall go back to the St. Regis. PS. I have reviewed quite a number of hotels and all have been complimentary to date.
