Grand Hotel Plaza in Rome

We made a reservation at the Grand Hotel Plaza for this summer in Rome. They had a special summer rate that seemed to be a good value for a 4 star hotel.
However, I haven't read very much on this forum regarding the hotel. They currently had renovations done this past year, so I am hoping for the best.

Any feedback from anyone?

Don't know the property personally.

Location is quite central. Transport good. Location might be a bit noisy. If air conditioned you should be okay, and you may in addition want to request a 'back' room (or one off the street in any event.)

The hotel is very old and majestic. They have recently renovated the hotel, but I haven't heard anything regarding changes. I too have heard that they are offering special rates from their website.

Good afternoon, Iris
Stayed at the Grand Hotel Plaza on
Nov 3 thru 8 of last year. It was
the first time here as before used
the De La Ville which was at the top
of the Spanish Steps. Love the area
around the Plaza, no steps to walk up
and down. Many ristorantes in the
immediate are and one we have used since
1971, the Capriccosia, the area is unbeleivably busy on Saturday evenings,
but after 7pm mostly everyone gets lost
and things return to normal. The Plaza
is old probably built in the 1880's,
some rooms have been remodeled but service and accomodations and etc are
very satisifictory. Richard of La Grange Park, Il..

We are staying at the Plaza right now and were very pleased. Large ample rooms, especially quiet on the courtyard side. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet included and it is a feast! Convenient to so many places- 3 blks from Spanish Steps, a 30 minute walk to St. Peters, 15 minutes from the Trevi Fountain. Would stay here again. Try and get a room on courtyard side rather than facing steet. The neatest feature is that for about $5 U.S. a day they let you use their computers for Internet/email purposes so I can keep in contact with family back home. Have a wonderful time and ciao!
