Hotel Majestic Roma in Rome, Italy
The first of the luxurious hotels on the Via Veneto, the Hotel Majestic Roma has since 1889 enjoyed a prestigious setting in the heart of Rome. This lovely and historic hotel, housed in a villa designed by the leading architect of the time, is ideally located just around the corner from the gardens of Villa Borghese, the stylish Via Condotti and the vibrant Spanish Steps. Here you'll be treated to the same classic elegance enjoyed by such celebrities as Nicole, Madonna, Springsteen, and Pavarotti.
Start your day at the Trinitŕ dei Monti, which offers stunning views of the city and Volterra's famous fresco of Christ descending the cross. The antiquities lure with visits to the Coliseum and the catacombs, while St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel awe with their impressive architecture and art. See the nearby Castle Sant'Angelo, a fortress used by the popes since the sixth century, then finish in the charming town of Trastevere with a stroll about its picturesque plaza.

Reviews for Hotel Majestic Roma
Great location - easy walking distance to Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. On a fairly busy street. Because we were there in November there was no air conditioning to use. We were told to open the windows for fresh air, which was fine, but not at night when we were sleeping. Without the windows open the room tended to be a little too warm, even in November. Also, when we arrived it was fairly chaotic - there was a large group departing for the cruise ship, and a large group coming in from the cruise ship. The foyer was packed with bags everywhere, and no one was able to get into their room. It worked out fine and things calmed down, but they really needed to have more staff on hand for that period of time. Breakfast was great - lots of good food choices and the atmosphere was lovely. The staff at the desk were polite and reserved. Everyone did their job, but very few actually smiled and we never felt completely welcomed, although that is certainly not a requirement for a hotel stay. I would like to recommend this hotel, but must admit I have nothing else to compare it with in Rome. Not sure I would return here - but we didn't find anything horrible either. I give this place a 6 out of 10.
Our first stay at the Majestic Roma was several years ago and the experience was completely outstanding. We were in room 19 (large with plenty of storage space and a spacious and beautiful bath) and it may still be wonderful. But our room during this stay, 321 (very small, less than 18" of clothes rod, only one tiny chair and almost no space for luggage) was slightly different. The hotel staff are all friendly and very accommodating. The buffet breakfast is far more than continental. It is first class. The bar and the outside terrace lounge and the inside quiet lounge is five star as well. But some little things like burned out lightbulbs in the room, no more wash cloths in the bath, the famous Jacuzzi tubs gone, the nice touch of an iron and ironing board on arrival are gone as well - although our first two hotels in Italy on this trip had none of these little deficiencies. The carpet in our room had burns and stains all over it and the headboard was just leaning against the wall - not attached to anything. The hotel's location is the best and there are any number of wonderful restaurants in the area. We had planned a night in the hotel's restaurant and were told no tables were available. We presumed we had simply been too late (36 hours before our desired table time) but from the lounge on the evening in question (a Friday) we saw the restaurant was not even going to open. Would we come a third time to the hotel? The gym is top notch (too bad they can't get the TVs to work and the public areas still have that era of Via Veneto's best so we might, but I would do more checking on the kind of room went with our reservation and be sure I packed my own iron and wash cloths.

You cannot go wrong staying here. Wonderful location. We walked to the Spanish Steps and to the Trevi Fountain very easily all within a couple hours. So much more we could have easily walked to. Make sure you check out the elevator - right out of the movies. And the pictures on the halls where the rooms are. worth seeing

And based on that rating, the Majestic isnâ€™t absolutely awful. But when compared with its neighbor, the Hotel Splendide, it come up woefully short. My first room was breathtakingly bad... a stifling hovel smack dab in the midst of major renovation, and I mean with a power drill, no less. Oh and with a charming view of utility connections. Well, once the little blonde Americana got her Cleveland-bred nerve on, I got â€śupgradedâ€ť to a slightly better room overlooking the Via Veneto, without construction, but equally without style or charm. A bitty undistinguished room with a small outdated bathroom, complete with 1970â€™s-style teeny, narrow youth hostel shower and hand-held shower head (I know; been there, done that). No special amenities or room appointments whatsoever. You get an OK bed, standard bedding and pillows and 2 punishing posture- correcting chairs and a flea market table. For the area, itâ€™s inexcusable. If I hadnâ€™t been part of a tour, I would have marched my cherry red you know what over to the truly exceptional 5+ Star Splendide and indulged in their comfort and style. The staff and the breakfast on offer are reasonably OK, but the hotelâ€™s common areas are virtually non-existent â€” no actual lobby and an institutional room or two serving as restaurant/bar In short, when in Rome, this is NOT an excellence to revel in. The location has several options far better than this.

The Majestic is well situated on the Via Veneto, which is very well situated. The room was well appointed, though on the small side, which is the same for most hotels in this part of Rome. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom okay. The breakfast was very good - try to get an inclusive deal. But dinner looked very expensive, so we ate out (we were there for only one night, en route to a cruise). There are several restaurants nearby. Many don't open for dinner until 7.30 or 8 pm. We looked around for half an hour, and found two which we liked the look of. We asked the concierge for a recommendation, and suggested these two, but he turned his nose up when we mentioned them! We decided to go for La Scala which we liked the look of - it opened at 7 pm (we were tired after a long journey, so wanted to eat early. It was excellent, and only five minutes walk away. If we were to visit Rome again, we'd choose the Majestic.
