Rome hotels

I am looking for a 4 star hotel in the heart of the action. I have found what I think is a reasnable rate ar the Grand Hotel Plaza, but I do not find many comments posted on this hotel. Has anyone stayed there?

We stayed there last summer and really enjoyed it. Our room was lovely,very large w/a high ceiling & ornate mouldings. The furnishings were a bit worn, but the bathrooms were beautiful, very modern. Good location, 5 min walk from the Spanish Steps, 10-15 min walk to Piazza Navona. Via del Corso is a busy street, but noise was not a problem at all (although it could've just been the jet lag).I think it's a great deal when you get the discounted rate (I think it was 3 nights you had to stay?)

Also, I seem to remember a posting on this hotel a few months back, and all of the replies were quite positive. I would definitely stay there again.

Hi Tim - what was the rate you were quoted at this 4 star hotel? I've been quoted 300,000 lire at the Traiano, another 4 star (for 4 beds). Just want to compare to see if we can get the best rates!

I was quoted a price of 430000 ITL for a double. It looks like you received a much better quote than I. I have not booked yet. I have done some more research and found that prices vary widely depending on the location of the hotel in Rome. I was concentrating on the Spanish Steps area and have found it to be confiscatory with the rates that they are asking... Still looking
