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.
"Beautiful, great location, but not a 5 star hotel"
The location of this hotel was perfect! We were able to walk almost everywhere, it really felt that we could have not stayed in a better location. The bedroom was very big and spacious, but very OLD - not classic. Wifi worked terribly, (we had to stand next to the bedroom entrance for it to work a bit). I think we were okay with the hotel because it was very handy to have it so close to most attractions and sightseeing spots, but def not worth the money and it does not deserve five stars.
"Grand Old Lady, Great Staff"
This is a five star hotel and a grand old thing even if her hallways are a bit tatty. I stayed there one week and loved it. Pros: Excellent staff, professional and devoted to providing personal attentive service. The common areas are grand, old and beautiful. The location is perfect-within walking distance of a zilliion good restaurants, luxury shopping, The Vatican and every iconic historical site and museum imaginable. The rooms are large and have great storage, the beds are really good and baths are modern and large. The roof top bar is great and view terrific. Cons: Not much, hallways tatty and need a redo.
"Great location and ambionse "
We flew in to Rome and stayed 3 nights at the Grand Central Plaza. This hotel is an attraction in its own right being built in the 1880s (I think - google it if you like) and still looking good while maintaining its heritage. The rooms have been modernised but retain the look and feel of the 1930's. Service at the reception, bar and restaurant we very good. However this is not the reason I posted this review... the location is just outstanding. You can walk to the Coliseum, the People's square, the Trevi Fountain Etc. There are lots is street restaurant and activities close by shopping is worth a look. Not cheap but well worth it
"Appalling - Run"
What a dump. Really is a 3 star hotel that is overpriced. Location is a saving factor but it's not sufficient. Breakfast was a disgrace, we had to make our own table, there was no food for extended periods, the staff attitude was famously Italian (didn't care), no plates or glasses (we got them ourselves) etc. Some rooms are large but they are terribly furnished. It's not a 5 star standard (I design hotels so know the requirements). They must have their star rating downgraded. Our room had a disgusting leek that dropped on your head while using he toilet. Obviously not fixed for many a year given the mould (see picture) My advice is to stay away and book some where else !
"Not a five star hotel"
The hotel is terrible, the rooms are old, wifi is terrible. Everything is dirty and smells terrible. Certainly not a five-star hotel. Not worth the money that we paid!!!! The hotel is terrible, the rooms are old, wifi is terrible. Everything is dirty and smells terrible hotel. Certainly not a five-star hotel. Not worth the money we paid. I would not recommend the hotel to anyone.
