Hotel Bettoja Massimo D'Azeglio Hotel 4 star
Via Cavour 18 Rome, Italy -
See the map
Amy Adejokun Section editor

This is an historic hotel, which doesn't seem to have changed since it opened in 1875. As this type of hotel is disappearing and the prices are very reasonable, we shall recommend the Massimo d'Azeglio to anyone who likes old-style holidays. Well located, in the heart of the city centre: so it is not the quietest of its category, but the interior and the restaurant are so quaint that they are definitely worth spending some time in.

    Location 9.54 /10

    On the via Cavour, a 2 minute walk from Termini station (and the underground station of the same name).
    Fiumicino airport is located 15 mi away; Ciampino airport is 10 mi away. Allow a 45 minute journey for Fiumicino and 30 minutes for Ciampino.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The Massimo d'Azeglio has 184 bedrooms. Good news for families with one child: if they are under 12, they can stay for free in their parents' room. A larger family? The hotel has around ten quadruple rooms. The average surface area of a double room is 172 to 215 sq ft. Request a superior standard room if you would like tea and coffee facilities. The view gives on to the via Cavour (rather noisy) or the inner courtyard (with close façades, but it is quiet). Although the furniture is not traditional, it nevertheless matches the rest of the hotel (red patterned upholstery, and a varnished wooden chair, desk and armchair, in the Art Deco style). The bathrooms have a bathtub (except for a few rooms which only have a shower), a hair-dryer and hospitality products (30ml) bearing the label of the hotel. The facilities include a flat screen TV, air-conditioning, a mini-bar and a telephone.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    A five-storey building on via Cavour, one of Rome's main roads, the Massimo d'Azeglio (dating from 1875) is very well located for exploring antique and modern Rome on foot. The down point is that it is exposed to the noise of the traffic: a lot during the week, but not so much at the weekend (fortunately). An old-style reception with a huge varnished wooden counter. The bar and the lounge areas are located in an elongated hall, decorated with moulded columns. There is Neo-Renaissance furniture, red velour armchairs and sofas, and matching lamp shades. The breakfast room is on the mezzanine floor (at the back of the reception). The restaurant is in a separate room, with patio doors opening on to the via Cavour. As in other old-style hotels, there are no other facilities. Nevertheless, the guests have free access to the gym of the Mediterraneo, a hotel which belongs to the same chain. You just need to cross over the street to get to the Mediterraneo.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    In the breakfast room, all you can see is your reflection in the mirrors placed on one of the walls. So there is no view of the outside, and no possibility to eat on the terrace in fine weather. The buffet offers hot dishes (scrambled eggs, bacon) and cold ones (yoghurts, jam tarts croissants, sliced bread). Coffee is self-service. For lunch and dinner, the meals take on a different aspect: if you like an 'olden days' atmosphere, try the £28 menu, a light price, when you think that the menu includes a starter or a pasta dish, a main course, a dessert and a coffee. Service is made with a trolley, like in the old times. The recipes are often Roman specialities (pasta alla matriciana, with bacon and creamy tomato sauce, pasta alla carbonara, with bacon also but the creamy sauce is flavoured with a raw egg yolk, and veal fillet served with ham and sage). If you are not hungry enough for all this, opt for the £22 option (main course, dessert and coffee). Come early if you wish to sit at one of the tables by the patio doors; or else towards the end of the service (around 2:00 pm and 9:30 pm).

    To know

    The Massimo d'Azeglio is part of the hotel chain Bettoja, like the Mediterraneo and the Atlantico, located on the same level as the via Cavour, on the other side of the street. The atmosphere is different in the 3 hotels. At the Massimo d'Azeglio, tradition and an old-style type of service is favoured (try the restaurant in order to have a good traditional meal, your dishes brought to the table and the meat carved in front of you).
    Accommodation tip
    As the soundproofing is not very good, those with sensitive ears should ask to be accommodated on the courtyard side and on the top floor, to keep the noise down to a minimum. If you like parquet and traditional furniture, request an "ancient" room. The comfort is identical to that of the other rooms, however, the parquet creeks and the armchairs are not adapted to rotund guests.

      Of the three hotels in the Bettoja chain situated on the Via Cavour, the Atlantico is the most modest, but not necessarily the cheapest. To be chosen when the other two hotels are full. If this is the case, you will be reassured by the breakfast buffet, served at the Mediterraneo, and you will be able to use the gym in the basement like the guests of the Massimo d'Azeglio.

    • UNA Hotel Roma UNA Hotel Roma UNA Hotel Roma

      • Value for money 7.21
      • Location 9.66

      Opened in 2009, UNA hotel still looks brand new, both inside and out. Modern, minimalist and strangely quirky in parts (the zebra print couch in the entrance hall should give you an idea of what is in store), almost all guests will tell you that UNA is very good value for money. This is a hotel completely at odds with the ancient city around it and provides an ultra-modern alternative to most of Rome's authentically crumbling hotels. Of exceptional note are its extremely polite and attentive staff and superb bar and restaurant.

      • Location 9.97

      Only a short walk from the central Termini train station, the Hotel Palladium Palace has lost much of its former splendour and seems to have fallen slightly into disrepair. Nevertheless, its positioning could not be more convenient and availability is always good. An imposing building, this hotel is basic but a perfect base if you're going to spend most of your time out roaming the streets of the capital. Its four stars is a little deceiving so be sure to expect something a little more simple and prices that are not really worth what you receive.

      To make sure of a pleasant stay, impress your other half with a setting that lacks neither gilding nor history, and to discover ancient (or Renaissance) Rome within walking distance of your hotel, reserve a room at the Exedra. This is a luxury hotel but it is not flashy, with attentive and discreet service. It is like living in a palace and, from June to September, you really can get a feel of the "dolce vita", with the open-air swimming-pool on the roof.

      A central hotel, situated a stone's throw away from Termini station (ideal for train journeys to the airport), Yes opened recently and has all the necessary comforts for modern day demands. Therefore the rooms are well soundproofed, they offer a small basket of hospitality products in the bathrooms (rare in mid range hotels) and the decoration is modern. To be recommended for accommodation without spending too much.

      This is the right choice if you're looking for a good place to stay at a lower price. Its location is both its plus point (next to Termini station) and its drawback (the hotel overlooks a very busy street). It is handy if you are arriving late, plan to leave early, or are staying on a tight budget. The rooms are simple but comfortable, and have undergone recent improvements.

      • Location 8.68

      Located in the centre of Rome, La Griffe will allow you to visit the city's main ancient sites (Coliseum, the Forum, Palatine Hill) on foot, without having to use the buses or the underground. An advantage for ancient history enthusiasts, but note that the design of the hotel is very Roman, and very contemporary. If you think that glossy black and red belong in a night-club rather than in a hotel, you should pick another hotel. Neo-Baroque enthusiasts will like it, as well as the curious ones among you who would like to test the effects of "chromotherapy".

      A very simple hotel, not far from Termini station, with the advantage of having been renovated recently. To be chosen when the announced prices correspond to those of the low season. The Marco Polo stands out only because of its bedrooms, which are very well taken care of. There is no original feature. What a shame there was no terrace on the roof, or no stylish decoration - that some other hotels in the same category also offer their guests.

      • Location 5.67

      The Hotel de Russie is one of the grand hotels in Rome with a garden. A privilege that is all the more remarkable because this garden, which backs on to the Monte Pincio (the hill leading to the Villa Borghese Park from the Piazza del Popolo), gives the impression of being in the very heart of the countryside. Perfect for getting away from the commotion and noise of Rome (which begins at the hotel door) whilst remaining just a few minutes by foot from Piazza di Spagna and the elegant shops in the area.

      Take the winding roads through the gardens of the Villa Borghese (one of Rome's most historic villas and gardens) and you will emerge into the peaceful neighbourhood of Parioli, distinctly different from Rome's usual bustling centre. Here, flanked by large private residences, the Aldrovandi Palace hotel offers its guests an exclusive place to rest their heads. As a Leading Hotel of the World, the hotel is used to welcoming guests who expect only the very best - attentive staff, gourmet food and comfort. And this is exactly what it delivers, with elegance, style and a two-Michelin-star restaurant to boot.

      • Value for money 7.29
      • Location 7.44

      It may be on the list of Rome's hotels but the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is quite different from your ordinary hotel experience. It cannot be confined to any kind of category, nor can it be given any stars. It is simply in a class above the rest - an aristocratic home away from home if you will. Still owned by Count Trivelli and his wife, the Villa was converted from the Count's private residence and still retains its original furniture. You must be looking for the very best in luxury accommodation (with a budget to match) to appreciate the magnificence of this 20th century property, its beautiful rooms and gardens. Rest assured though, that you will receive only the best in exclusive service and ultimate privacy. If official photos tend to exaggerate the elegance of the hotels they picture, then those of Spalletti Trivelli don't do it justice. You must be sat in the grand drawing room with a hot drink or snuggled up in the library with a book in order to really see the restored beauty of one of Rome's most exclusive addresses.

      The Regina Baglioni is one of the historical landmarks of the Via Veneto. Wander down as if to have a drink at Harry's bar (located on the same avenue): for a chic yet traditional atmosphere. Take in the luxury of early 20th Century palaces, the traditional service and the refinement of the decor. It is best suited to couples celebrating a special occasion (birthday or other celebration) to fully appreciate the hotel.

      For true boutique style, class and impeccable service, the Lord Byron is our top choice of places to stay in Rome. There is a reason that this hotel has such a loyal returning clientele and it is simply because the service is outstanding. From the moment you walk up the steps to the reception, a relaxed atmosphere washes over you. It may be out of the immediate vicinity of Rome's biggest attractions, but it is all the better for it. After a long day of absorbing the endless roman culture, it is true heaven to come back to a hotel that really feels like home.

      A pretty, well located hotel with a limited number of rooms: for those who want to experience the chic side of Rome, take a stroll through Villa Borghese park or do some shopping on the Via Veneto or in the Piazza di Spagna area. This rococo-inspired hotel is beyond reproach, if you can afford to stay in a suite and take lunch and dinner in the gourmet restaurant with no budget restrictions.

      • Location 6.02

      An upmarket hotel, well located for exploring the Piazza Navona and the Trastevere district on foot, the St George is recommended for a week-end away from it all... This will give you the opportunity to try the spa (maybe a treatment or two and a dip in the hydrotherapy bath), sample the restaurant menu and hang out in the wine bar. Ideally you would stay here when the panoramic terrace is open (between April and October). In practice, though, if the rates offer a better deal in January, don't hesitate to stay at the St George: the decor in the hotel (all beige, grey-green and glossy brown) makes it feel more like winter than summer anyway.
