Fodor's Review

When it comes to million-dollar views, this exclusive hotel atop the Spanish steps has the best seats in the house, so it’s no surprise that generations of fans, many rich and famous (Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Gwenyth Paltrow, and the Beckhams included), are willing to pay top dollar to stay here. While the exterior is relatively bland, the hotel—first opened in the late-1800s and run by a fifth-generation hotelier—hits you with elegance, history, and refined service

as soon as you enter. Guest rooms are among Rome’s most lavishly (and sometimes whimsically) decorated. One penthouse claims the largest terrace in town (and a €5,000-a-night price tag), while the other goes one better with two terraces (€15,000 per night). More standard rooms at the back will spare you and your wallet the VIP prices. The Michelin-starred rooftop restaurant, Imàgo, is world famous for its view, if not for its food, while the Palm Court, which becomes the hotel bar in summer, overflows with flowers; the iconic "hidden" Hassler Bar, tucked off the lobby, is just made for illicit meetings. There's also a small spa and salon on-site.

Great place - especially if you smoke

Great room, good service. But the otherwise excellent bar seems to have a special exemption from the Italian non-smoking law. The smoke wafts into the restaurant yet the bar manager says it is beyond his power to stop. I complained in writing to the manager but received no reply. A very poor show.

Living on it's reputation

We've dined in the rooftop restaurant in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s - always a treat. Not any more. Menu and service no longer up to par; prices ridiculous for what is provided. It appears that management is cutting back to maintain margins.

Don't dress down, they will ask to see your key

A beautiful hotel. Room was small but quality throughout. The bathroom was heaven. Service was excellent. The only complaint was the renovations in the suite next to our room. To their credit, they did hold off on the noise until about 11:30 one morning as they realized we were not awake. (The front desk warned us about the renovations and told us to call to be moved if it was a problem.) There was a lovely common balcony on our floor. It gave a spectacular

view of Roma. As we entered the lobby after a day of site seeing (in our casual American clothing) we were asked if we needed help, Do you have your room key?" twice. Not an issue for us, but may be insulting to others. Take your nice clothes and wear a jacket and tie after 7 pm. It is a tough walk up the 140 Spanish Steps to the hotel after a large meal and bottle of chianti, but well worth it for the sites! Enjoy the Hassler!
