Empire Palace Hotel in Rome, Italy
Rome's magnificent Empire Palace Hotel was built in the 1870s for a family of Italian nobles. Its beautifully restored ceiling frescoes of the heavens reflect a meticulous regard for the building's origins, while daring contemporary artwork in the lobby delivers this landmark into the 21st century. As for the guestrooms, their elegance is timeless. In the garden courtyard, cypress and magnolia trees surround a 16th-century fountain. During the summer months, diners at Aureliano can enjoy the restaurant's acclaimed Mediterranean cuisine in this romantic, outdoor space.
The hotel enjoys a prestigious location between the fashionable Via Veneto and the Piazza Barberini. Guests can easily stroll to the tranquil Borghese Gardens, the charming antique shops of Via Margutta and the vibrant Spanish Steps. Your stylish room also makes a delightful base for visiting some of the city's most noted sites, such as the Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica. When evening comes, café-hopping and nightclubbing should begin right at the hotel with a drink in The Blue Bar, in the stables of the old Venetian Palace.

Reviews for Empire Palace Hotel
Hotel is within walking distance from the Spanish Steps but it is an uphill home coming back. The front deck will point you to nearby shopping but unless you have unlimited disposable income I would go elsewhere. The rooms are a bit small but very clean. Bathrooms are comfortable size and the towels are huge. I do not recommend this location for limited mobility. Lots of steps even up to the elevator. I wish I had gotten their names but both bellman we dealt with were outstanding as was the very nice lady tending bar. Other than that don't expect a friendly face. Just the question of what number to dial for the front desk (which is 9 and not published anywhere in the room or on the phone) seemed to be beneath their station at the front desk. American Embassy is very near buy. Had a wonderful dinner up the street and around the corner at Ristorante La Pentolaccia. Reservations are recommended. Would have given more stars for the hotel if not for the front desk.

Stayed 2 nights at Empire Palace Hotel. We were warmly greeted upon arrival. The desk clerks were very helpful giving locations of interest and directions. It is in a more secluded area of Rome, but still had many wonderful restaurants and wine bars close by. We walked late at night with no concerns. The room was nice for 3 people. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and good. We did stop by the on-site bar/restaurant. A server asked us to move locations in the bar. After waiting 10+ minutes with no service, we left for a local restaurant with an excellent wine list. The location is very close to the American Embassy. Rome was experiencing unseasonably high temperatures, 99+ degrees. The air conditioning could have been cooler in our room.

This Hotel is located in an apparently classy neighbourhood with several ministryâ€™s around. It is close to the main train station and walking distance from many attractions. Breakfast is good but I would say it could be better. The rooms are comfortable but very small.

It was absolutely, worst hotel Iâ€™ve ever been , the hotel location is the only positive point and the rest was awful . I donâ€™t recommend to those who are travelling with an infant cause you will have big trouble with preparing the milk and other thing . As the hotel is too old , the roomâ€™s facilities also are not enough . No boiler in the room , no TV !! Old hair dryer , small bathroom , uncomfortable pillows and sofas . And the most important thing which made me too much upset , was the staffs impolite behavior , from a normal waiter or waitress to head of the HOTEL . The INTERNET SPEED also dead !!!! And if you gets disconnected every 1 minuets if you donâ€™t open a page . For fast web surfing you must pay 12 euros !!!! Donâ€™t GO there
This particular hotel was booked through a travel agent for a friend and I. We asked for twins beds in the room and were upgraded to separate rooms on the same floor when we arrived. It was a much better arrangement for us. The rooms were fine as singles - especially getting to use two bathrooms. The rooms were comfortable but on the small side. Great amenities - including free WiFi. The location is within walking distance of many of the sites in Rome - such as the Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain, and the Borghese Garden. The hotel has a breakfast room and a dining room. There is food offered for lunch and dinner after 7:30 pm. There is also a full bar area. Clean, well kept up, lovely furnishing. Other restaurant options are within a very short walking distance of the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely visit in the enteral city.
