    Best Location for walking Rome - 2014


    We started our tour of Rome on foot here. We dropped off our bags in the early morning and went walking to the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and spent time in the church at the top of the Spanish Steps.

    Unique Quality: Our room had a huge window which opened up to the city below.

    A very good hotel!


    My stay was wonderful. I arrived a little early then the usual check in time. But that was no problem at all. They just found a room for me. I ordered a single room but my room was BIG with two beds. It was lovely and I will definetly go there again.

    Unique Quality: Nice decor and friendly staff. Very good service.

Grand Hotel Palatino Review

by TripAdvisor Member traveliwill

We stayed 6 nights at the Palatino in Rome - 11-20-04 to 11-27-04. Location, Location, Location. The hotel is 1 block from the Metro, a few steps to the bus stop, and a few blocks walking distance to many major attractions. Our room was spacious by European standards, the bathroom was clean and well supplied with towels and paper products, the beds and pillows were confortable, and the staff was pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast at the hotel was plentiful and of an acceptable quality and variety. We found the Palatino to be confortable and would stay there again. It IS NOT a luxury hotel. It IS a comfortable one.

Great location... rowdy crowds

by A TripAdvisor Member

If you're looking for a hotel with a prime location, the Grand Hotel Palatino is not bad. I was there for 4 nights in January and found it a very good location to walk to the Coliseum which is a 10 minute walk, the Termini station (10 minute walk), the Trevi fountain (10 minute walk) and the Spanish steps (15 minute walk). The one thing I didn't like about the hotel is it's so big that many tours choose to stay in this hotel, so you get a lot of rowdy crowds. Like the others said, the breakfast does get boring, but it's free continental, so why not.

Great location, friendly staff, recommended hotel.

We stayed 4 nights at the Palatino, just before Christmas 2004. I would recommend the hotel, especially if you search around the Internet for deals. We paid 119 euros per night for a room for 3 people. This included a breakfast buffet which generally comprised of scrambled eggs, sausages, assorted cereals, fruits, yoghurts, croissants, bread rolls, juices, coffee, milk, etc. and was certainly a very sufficient meal to give you a good start to the day, especially as the exchange rate makes eating out rather costly right now. The metro station is one block away and you buy tickets at the tabacchi by the station or at the bar one block in the other direction from the hotel. We discovered by accident that kids 10 and under are not required to purchase tickets. The main station (Termini) is a couple of miles from the hotel so if you arrive there with luggage you will need a taxi. (The hotel will send a car to pick you up at the airport for around 50 Euros). The Colliseum is a leisurely 10 minute walk from the hotel and, even with a 10-year old in tow we were able to walk to the Roman Forum and Trevi Fountain pretty easily. We took the metro to Vatican City and arrived to discover that the Pope appears every Sunday at noon and blesses the crowd in the piazza of St. Peter's - a wonderful surprise. I was very pleased with the accommodations and food at the Palatino and Roberto at the front desk is exceptionally helpful. The room was clean, comfortable, and included a safe and a mini bar (we just removed the bottles and used it as a fridge!). Rome was wonderful and the Grand Hotel Palatino was the icing on the cake.

Great location

Great location. Walking distance to many sites. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast buffet, which was included, was very good. Maids were very noisy cleaning rooms and hallways around 7am.

The Palatino - A Wonderful Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed two nights at the Palatino on the 5&6 November 2004 - and it wasn't long enough. Nice room, wonderful buffet breakfast but even more important were the friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is within walking distance of most of the ancient sites and there are bars and cafes a plenty. We will certainly return to the Palatino.

Overall the hotel was a good value for Rome and in a convenient location. It ia a 5 minute walk if that to the Coliseum. Breakfest is included and it was a decent breakfest buffet (cereal, eggs, rolls, coffee, bacon). The hotel also has a restaurant and a bar. The hotel staff was very pleasant and the rooms were adequate. It is an adequate hotel if you don't want to break the bank to stay in Rome.

The only negatives we encountered were as follows: 1) The bathtub/shower was very tiny in terms of width. It felt like my feet were almost too big to stand in the tub in order to shower. 2) The hotel room was extremely hot. We visited over Thanksgiving and had the heat turned off but the room was extremely hot. We had to sleep with the window wide open and it was still almost unbearable. I am typically a person who is always cold. My husband couldn't stand it. Our room was on the 6th floor but since we had to keep the window wide open it was very noisy at night. 3) Our room had an electronic safe but it didn't work. We asked the front desk if it could be fixed but the problem was never addressed.

Excellent location...

by TripAdvisor Member Desirees

As the other reviewers put it, the location cannot be beat. The coloseum is only a block away, the Palazzo Venezia is literally round the block and the hotel itself is good. Dont expect plush settings, this is a standard hotel, however with larger than average (at least by European standards) rooms and good sized bathrooms. There were lots of towels available, the room had an inbuilt safe, a mini bar, comfortable beds with an ample supply of pillows. I loved the bath products they supplied, especially the shampoo. There is a pretty good restaurant right next door called the Cafe Borgia, ideal for the first dinner in Rome after you are tired from a long trip. If you take the stairs leading down on your right once you come out of the hotel, you will come across a bunch of cafes. We found the cheapest place to buy water or other stuff you might need is to go to this grocery store which is a few feet away to the left of the hotel on the other side of the street. Best rate for changing money is the changing place that advertises no fees for changing, take a right as you come out of the hotel and walk past the chinese restaurant and little way down.
We were there for four days, the buffet breakfast was good but after the second day it got very monotonous with absolutely no variations. The concierge was very knowledgeable, they fixed a cab for us for 45 Euros to take us to the airport on our way back. This was a good hotel and we will stay there again due to the location.

Wonderful stay at the Palatino

by A TripAdvisor Member

We just spent Christmas and New Year at the Paltino. A total of 10 days. Really, the hotel is excellent. It is well located near the Fiori, the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. The Restaurant Spighe has excellent food, although more pricey than nearby trattorias. Christmas Eve and New Year dinner were delicious. The rooms are comfortable and have all the amenities including internet in the TV.
I recommend a trattoria behind the hotel called Ragno d'Oro. they have wondeful Spagetti alle Vongole and Papardele al Salmome.
