Hotel Caprice is in the Via Veneto area, just a few steps away from that famous thoroughfare, but unlike the hotels there, it won't cause you to mortgage your house. It may not be one of the grand Veneto hotels, but it's cozy, clean, and well-maintained. The price includes a generous Continental breakfast (croissants with jam or Nutella, yogurt, fruit, cheese, salami & the typical Roman rossettone rolls). The Barberini metro stop is only a few blocks away, although you will be within decent walking distance of the shopping center of the city on Via del Corso, the Spanish Steps, and the Trevi Fountain. I've stayed in Rome several times but in terms of the important factors (price, location, safety), I've never done better. In fact, I'm done looking for a base in Rome - I'm booking the Caprice from now on.
Unique Quality: Since this is an older hotel that has been refurbished to modern standards, you won't find a grand lobby or a bank of elevators, so be patient. Ask about the rooms before you make your reservation as some of them are tiny, even by Italian standards. The plumbing can be a little sluggish too, but that's also common in Europe. However, they are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful and will be happy to direct you to the best local restaurants - there is no restaurant but there are plenty nearby, and if you take their advice and head down Via Liguria instead of Via Veneto, you'll find some great affordable places.
Directions: Right off Via Veneto
Nice room, but small bathroom and shower. Staff was very nice and accommodating and we absolutely loved the cappacino bar and breakfast in the morning. One interesting thing about this hotel which might be custom in Rome is you leave your key with the front desk when you leave. It was great because we never had to worry about losing the key. The hotel is located in Via Veneto a very nice/ritzy neighborhood and pretty central to everything. We walked most places and when it was too far to walk we took the Metro. I would definately stay here again.
The Hotel Caprice is located just a few steps from the Piazza di Spagna and literally one step from the CicaCica Boom Genteleman's Club! Nevertheless, we are from New York, so we were not astonished. After a long day of sightseeing it was interesting and amusing to see, the different clientele that frequented the CicaCica Boom Club!
Getting back to the hotel, we found the staff to be both friendly and informative. The location was great and the neighborhood was very safe.
Unfortunately, the hotel does not have irons so you might want to pack a small travel iron in your suitcase.
Enjoy your stay at the Hotel Caprice!
Unique Quality: Just 3 minutes from the Spanish Steps!
Directions: Spanish Steps Area
We are thinking about staying at Hotel Caprice in Rome. Any one have info on it? How far to train station? Do we need to take a cab to see sights or is the metro close? Thanks
The Hotel Caprice is on Via Liguria very near the Spanish Steps(La Scala .d'espagna). The nearest metro station is 'Spagna' which is two stops from the main station of Termini.
