The Duke Hotel lies in the safe, quite and exclusive Parioli in the Villa Borghese area, 2 km from Via Veneto and 2,5 km from Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps).
Lovely hotel, professional staff, the room was well equipped and the breakfast was good. Also, the hotel`s free shuttle to the Piazza del Popolo is very usefull; it saves you valuable time, especially if you`re planning on visiting a lot!
"Loved it from start to finish! "
I was happy and I felt welcome from first setting foot inside the Duke hotel. The staff were attentive, polite and service minded. The shuttle to Via Di Palazzo was a great service but my wife and myself went to explore on our own the second day and took the train from Euclide station. We both loved I Duce, the restaurant inside the hotel that we had a second dinner there on our last evening in Rome. From one chef to another I loved all the food we had there. My wife was equally pleased with everything. A huge thank you from room 226 to the head chef and his/her brigade working in the kitchen. I will happily recommend your hotel to anyone thinking of visiting Rome. Keep going strong all the staff at the Duke hotel. Be proud of your hard work there because people do notice that you take pride in your work!
We use this Hotel as a base when in Rome for work and have used the conference rooms, bedrooms, the Polo Lounge and the restaurant. The Hotel has a family friendly feeling, is cozy and welcoming. Location is perfect. The bus service to the centre fantastic. Parking available. The food in the restaurant delicious and best of all everyone, and I mean everyone, could not be more charming, helpful and available to help in any way possible. We go once a month and it is always perfect.
"Lovely hotel with friendly staff"
We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Staff were very friendly and gave us lots of help and recommendations for travel and sightseeing. The shuttle bus was very useful and it allowed us to explore the city in the evening and try new restaurants for dinner.
"City Break Base in Rome - Away From the Hustle and Bustle"
After searching for hours looking for the right hotel to use as our base for exploring Rome I finally found The Duke Hotel. I had read so much about noisy city centre hotels and I knew that we were looking for somewhere quiet to rest up from all that walking. The Duke was ideal, situated in a generally quiet residential district and relatively modern in its design with a traditional flavour throughout. To get there we took the Leonardo Express from Fiumicino Airport to the Termini which cost EU14. From there we took a taxi right outside the station which got us to the hotel in about 15 minutes costing about EU12. We received a warm welcome and were given a full explanation of everything at check in. The room was on the 2nd floor using a very snug lift. We'd booked a classic double room which was spacious enough for the two of us. There was plenty of storage space, flat screen TV, desk and a firm and large bed. The bathroom was a reasonable size and bathrobes and slippers were available, as well as toiletries and the main mirror was heated in the centre, so no steaming up.There is no tea and coffee making facilities in the room but there was a small minibar fridge and a room safe was available in the wardrobe. Breakfast was a broad offering with some cooked food, plenty of cereals, fruit, toast, cheese, meats and cakes. There was quite a few business travellers using the hotel as well as tourists. There isn't a bar as such, however there is a sitting room with a table loaded with bottles of alcohol. If you ring the bell a waiter will come and take your drink order. We didn't use the hotel for any other meals. We made excellent use of the free minibus which takes you to Flaminio, next to Piazza Del Popolo. This trip only takes about 10 minutes and is easy enough to book through Reception. You can always use a taxi of course but we found the minibus very convenient. Just bear in mind that it can only take 6 passengers and if you don't book you probably won't get on. We made good use of the room's smartphone which you can take out and about with you. Just don't lose it or break it as it could cost you over EU300. The maps were useful for finding your way around and we called back to the UK for free too. You can also call free to the USA, Canada, Australia etc which is very useful. There are also some useful speed dial options to call the hotel Reception or minibus booking desk too. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable.
