A lovely hotel, Close by the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Colesseum. All within walking distance. Very trendy hotel, clean, nice breakfast. Only downside was our room was a little on the tiny side, could have been a bit bigger so didn't feel claustrophobic. It was only a two night stay so wasn't too bad, but any longer and I...

On a positive note, the staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and welcoming both on arrival and during the duration of the stay. Whilst I can appreciate that little time was spent in the room due to various appointments and seeing the city, the time spent in the room was extremely underwhelming. Firstly, the rooms are EXTREMELY small. I...

Arrived on Monday 27th, a grand entrance to the hotel, looks great, reception staff service was what you expect from a 4*. But...... that's about it. Although the hotel is a supposed to be a charm from the past, with its older decor, you don't expect things to be hanging off the wall, and damaged interior. The room also does...

Had a 4 night stay at the hotel, impressive building tastefully decorated. Bedrooms small but very acceptable for the time spent there. The beds are so comfortable with fabulous crisp white bedding which was changed every day as were the towels, bathroom compact with a selection of toiletries. The bar manager Moumo was an asset to the hotel, was very...

We were totally pleased with our stay at the Empire Palace Hotel. This hotel was provided for us as part of a package deal. It was however an upgrade from the hotel in their standard package. The hotel is located in a very nice part of Northern Rome. The area has a mixture of commercial and residential properties. It is...

I arrived in the evening and although the hotel is close to the Termini train station I had arranged a car to take me from the airport to the hotel. The hotel is located in a quiet area, although close to transportation and walking distance to a number of attraction and I felt safe walking at all times. I had...

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighbourhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 20:00.
