stayed at this hotel for around 5 days... grt hospitality... great staff... the breakfast was nothing to write home about - the standard buffet fare... but then we hardly ate at the hotel, when the cuisines of rome awaited us on the street-side cafes and pizza by the slices joints... the rooms were apacious and the location is grt considering its only 5 mins walking from termini... for an average double room it will cost you around 400 euros... but check their site for special offers...
this is a quote from the hotel's official site:
"In 1875, Maurizio Bettoja bought the ground floor of the building where Hotel Massimo D'Azeglio currently stands, which at the time housed a long-established restaurant. Maurizio Bettoja's son Angelo had a feeling that it would be an ideal location for a hotel. After hiring a manager and staff, he bought the rest of the building and transformed it into Hotel Massimo D'Azeglio.
Since then, the hotel has welcomed guests of all nationalities into a building that - in spite of its many renovations - has been able to hold onto its late nineteenth century atmosphere and style. The main façade has kept the same look as it had under King Umberto, while its interiors have undergone many changes. "
Unique Quality: met the current owner and he told us abt the how the hotel started... it was used as wine cellar & winery before it became a hotel... if you are a genuine wine lover coax and cajole the staff to show you th original cellar under the hotel - there were original bottles that were over a 100 yrs old... it was like walking into a period film-set... its a must if u r staying at the hotel... the cellar called "la cantina" can be hired for pvt dinners as well!!!
also the hotel is filled with antique art and statues that are not fakes but original ones... across the street from this hotel is a sister concern atlantico... on the wall there, is a huge leather world map dating back over 300 yrs... its brilliant...
the many guests have included the King of Serbia, the ace aviator Francesco Baracca, Benito Mussolini, General Diaz, Louis Armstrong, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Fausto Coppi and Mascagni, among others.
