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.

This was the perfect hotel for our short stay! The room was clean, quite and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and the location was centrally located. We found it very easy to walk to several locations and I felt like a local popping into the coffee shops in the area. I would stay here again.

We had a 3 night stay here, first trip to Rome. Lovely hotel, about 15 mins walk from the train station. Upon arrival we were greeted by Francesco, who was so helpful and took time to talk to us during our stay and gave us some great tips for places to visit. Nothing is too much trouble! We ate in the Blue Bar the first evening. Food was gorgeous and such a relaxing atmosphere. Beautiful vaulted ceilings. Bedrooms are a lovely size, minibar, tv etc and wonderful comfortable bed. Slept extremely well. Everything you need and room service. Free use of safe in bedroom. Breakfast is plentiful and there is a good choice. Central for attractions and so much to see, we're planning a return trip. If eating out, watch out for high prices. Try the little pizzerias in the streets that are very reasonably priced. You can't get a lovely meal with drinks for 25-40 euros for 2 of you. Don't go for the main restaurants as you'll pay 100-150 euros for 2! Rome is beautiful and would stay at this hotel again without a doubt.

This hotel offer great service to their guests. We arrived early but they already have a room for us with basket of fruits and a champagne which for me is extra points on their service as they dont brag it to their guest. Breakfast were superb! Although for first timer in Rome it will be hard to find the hotel, still with google map you will be able to find it. Near to bus stop in going to the train stations and metro. Will definitely book again to this hotel when going back to Rome.

I along with my wife visited Rome for 3 nights. We had a great time at Empire Palace Hotel with its infrastructure, its staff and proximity to the attractions/Termini. We covered most of the attractions by walking.
