Fodor's Review

Valadier. In the heart of the centro, just steps away from the prominent Piazza del Popolo and a few minutes' walk from the Spanish Steps, is this luxury hotel—known for comfortable rooms with marble and travertine bathrooms and a superb location—that has captured the hearts of elite travelers over the years. Once a convent, later a house of ill repute, this palazzo has seen it all, though not a trace of either incarnation remains. As for decor, it's

traditional hotel luxe, with a lot of polished surfaces, mirrors, and shiny lights, so don't expect any time-burnished patina. However, the view from the rooftop terrace restaurant, complete with a panorama of domes and cupolas, is enchanting. There's also a swanky piano bar.

Valadier Sux

We arrived late (around 1am) because our flight was cancelled and we ended up staying in an airport for 14 hours, but that's another story. So needless to say, by the time we got to the hotel, the last thing we needed was a snooty attitude, which was in abundance. When we saw the room, I was appalled. My smallish pantry kitchen is bigger than this room. I went to take a shower and the shower didn't work. It took them 24 hours to fix that, and it still

didn't work. I have never felt so cramped in all my life... and put off by the staff. It was small, dirty, and oh-so-gaudy... we're talking mirrors on the ceiling. We checked out after two nights of listening to the bar crowd downstairs. Never again!!!!

When in Rome...

My wife and I stayed here the last day of our honeymoon. We've recommended it to all our friends and wish we'd stayed here sooner during our trip. We stayed in a Double Superior room and compared to the other places we stayed in Rome it was by far the best value for our $. Keep in mind that European hotels are not like American hotels and you'll be fine. If you're expecting a room the same size as your last business trip to the Marriott Courtyard

then you're out of luck unless you want the full suite. The room was clean and normal sized. Breakfast was very goodwith a wide selection. The staff was helpful and fluent in english. It reminded us of the W hotel in NYC.

No airconditioning in August

I agree with the last review but would add the A/C is almost non-existant. I fan would be a welcome asset. The rooms are small. Think small and divide by half and then you will be on target. The location is great and quiet but the room was dirty, small and hot. The breakfast restaurant staff thinly veiled there hatred of the guests. The Lacarno is a much better option.

Good Choice

First stop on our honeymoon and what a good choice. Helpful staff, excellent decor (loved the marble bathroom), room a bit small (but this is Rome) and lucky enough to get a rate of Euro 150 per room per night. Try the rooftop terrace for a 'special' meal, try the pizza/pasta restaurant downstairs for something easier on the wallet. Well located for walking to the main sights.

Modern Roman Style, Dark and Funky Atmosphere.

The room was a little small, but the bathroom was huge, and the service was excellent. The location is ideal, and since the Hotel is on a side street, there is no street noise. It reminded me of the W Hotel in New York, very cool atmosphere.
