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.
"Little disappointed "
We stay there 4nights for our visit. Hotel is in a very good location in shopping district. They call them self 5stars luxury but to me I don't really feel that. Our room is not including breakfast and they charge 25euro person for breakfast. Not even a single bottle of water offer during our stay. For 4days they didn't clean our room well. The table near our bed is very dusty. Shampoo , bath gel no replacement . The empty open bottles is still there in the bathroom. They only make our bed and change towels. At check out they just inform us that for car parking is 65euro per night. Well if you looking hotel with good location this is good for you but for the comfort and stay is not that wow!
"The Concierge is A-mazing"
Great location, friendly staff. The star of this hotel is Ana, the head concierge, she is helpful beyond belief, genuinely wants to make sure everything you want done is done is in the best possible manner across all of Italy....not just Rome. Cannot say enough great things about Ana. She carries so much of the guest experience in this hotel. Look forward to coming back.

"Great location, great staff, rooms pretty darn good"
I must admit our hesitance to book the Grand Hotel Plaza after reading some lukewarm reviews. Our family that includes two teens, agree that we're glad we took a chance on this property because we truly enjoyed our stay. The location is absolutely 5 stars - the hotel is in short walking distance to the Villa Borghese, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and we even took a longer walk to the Vatican. The hotel is in close proximity to both the big name, high-fashion houses (think Gucci, Furla, Chanel) but we loved the local boutiques and restaurants that are plentiful on the side streets that surround the hotel. The hotel breakfast offers dozens of choices for almost any food preference. While the choices varied somewhat, each day's selections included grilled vegetables, fruits, pastries, and a variety of meats and cheeses. The main level common rooms feature a lovely original marble staircase, original frescoes and iron/crystal chandeliers that give that true Italian old-world feel. Free wifi, so you won't feel too old-world! I would rate the room accommodations 3+. We stayed in a double room that featured two large bedrooms, complete with impressive 14 foot ceilings and a marble bath. I would improve the room by adding softer mattresses and adding a larger shower/bath combo. The tub is narrow, so the showering space feels cramped. I would also suggest updating the hallways. Regardless of my improvement recommendations, our family would definitely choose to stay at the Grand Hotel Plaza again.
"Definitely not what I was expecting "
Torn between my rating, but to be fair I have given it a 3/5 instead of 2/5. On arrival, the hotel is grand and the reception staff are friendly enough although perhaps a bit snobby. We had a room for 2 adults, 2 children. The rooms were definitely not what we were expecting and a far cry from what we are used to. The rooms were very basic; just a bed with some storage space, with a sofa in the 'main' bedroom. The bathroom was very small. For a family of 4 it would have been nice to have a larger bathroom. The shower cubicle was very small and our youngest, who is not quite old enough to shower alone, did not approve. It would have been nice to have the option of a bath, especially after a long flight here. Overall, it was was the little things that let this hotel down. The Wi-Fi was poor, whilst this isn't the be all and end all, the children do enjoy their iPads in the evening and we're not able to use them. The television did not work. There were no tea/coffee facilities and ordering for room service was excessive. On one occasion we did order a pot of coffee and the pot is still in our room after 2 days, despite leaving it out. The cleaning staff are thorough but do not replenish toiletries. There was an odd smell in the lifts. We enjoyed are stay in Rome and hope to return but we won't be returning to this hotel. For such a beautiful building, the service let it down significantly. I wouldn't recommend staying here if you want a luxury 5* break, but the location is very good.
