Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MHFH2013 Excellent In Every Way
My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay in the Intercontinental for three nights in mid August and it was a fabulous experience from start to finish. We were upgraded to a suite on the eighthfloor which had a panoramic view of Rome. As well as the opportunity of outdoor dining on our own roof terrace, we could watch Rome lighting up at night.
The suite itself was very well appointed with an extremely comfortable bed and wonderful air conditioning.
The staff were unerringly polite and punctual and we would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants an unforgettable experience in this city.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gustavoc My best experience in Rome
Being a Royal Ambassador means you get to visit many Intercontinental properties, every year. While several of them are recurrent business visits, such as Le Grand in Paris, the Festival City in Dubai or the Intercontinental in Singapore, the two consecutive visits to De La Ville in Rome where about pleasure, and what a pleasure it turned out to be!
We were so nicely surprised by the warm welcome on our first visit August the 9th and with the great view we enjoyed from the huge terrace of our suite number 839 at the last floor, that we were wondering what could happen in our next visit 5 days later. To our amaze and even greater surprise, we got the only other room available on that last floor the suite number 840, with an even bigger and nicer terrace, overlooking almost 360 degrees of Rome. On our previous visit we enjoyed the great service at the Emperor Terrace on the sixth floor, but this time we could not resist having dinner on our private terrace, which was perfectly set and served by the outstanding personnel from the room service, right as the sun set behind Saint Peter's Cathedral. This is definitely a hotel to visit over and again. My sincere thanks for all the attentions received.

We love Rome, stayed at the InterContinental for the first time. I must admit, we have never stayed anywhere that enjoyable and quiet in a city center. The location is great for sightseeing and shopping alike. The hotel offers a great service with always helpful and friendly employees. We also enjoyed the food. It was wonderful, we'll be back!!!

Outrageously expensive for very small rooms.
Tiny lobby, extremely small elevators.

Definitively not worth a visit.
There are many better hotels in Rome.

For the second time, we spent three days at this beautiful hotel. The location (close to the spanish steps) is perfect if you want to see the historical Rome. The hotel has a very nice atmosphere, the staff is very helpful and the food served, both for breakfast and at the terrace for dinner is great. Special thanks to the very helpful Concierge staff. We shall return.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Johnmike Terrible experience
The hotel needs major renovations; it is old, dirty, unkept, needs a significant paint job. The amenities are out of date, the internet never worked, the carpet in the room was filthy and the bathroom was dirty when I walked into the room - never well cleaned. The light fixtures in my room never worked properly either.
Most importantly, the staff at the hotel was the most rude group of professionals I have ever encountered in my many years of travel. Not only would I not recommend this hotel to anyone, I would tell everyone I know who is traveling to Rome, including anyone at my firm and travel agency (Amex), to avoid this hotel at all costs.
There are better hotels in Rome where professionalism, cleanliness and working services are their priority.

This Intercontinental Hotel location was suggested to us by a friend and also by our travel agent as the hotel with the best location to base oneself if touring Rome. We quickly learned, they were both 100% correct. We loved it and would definitely return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simon22 Great staff and great location
We spent two nights here for a long weekend to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday.
We arrived early for our rooms which were still being turned down and one room fro my son & daughter was still configured for a double.
Manuel on the check in desk swiftly obtained a nearby room and arranged for the beds to be twins.
We didnt eat at the hotel so cant comment on that but the location was excellent just by the Spanish Steps and we walked everywhere.
After a long day it was lovely to return to our rooms which were very comfortable and on one night a complimentary bottle of fizz which made for a lovely treat before heading out to evening.
We had a evening flight back to London but the excellent concierge desk looked after our luggage for the remainder of the day before heading for the airport.
Would have no problem recommending the hotel

WE WERE IN ROME MAY 2013 AND STAYED AT DE LA VILLE ROMA.
WE ALWAYS HAD EXCELLENT SERVICE. GREAT RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE AS WELL AS DIRECTIONS TO SIGHTS WERE ACCURATE. TAXIS WERE AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES. THE ROOMS ARE EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE AND CLEAN. WE WERE TREATED KINDLY AND STAFF WAS HELPFUL. GREAT LOCATION AT THE TOP OF THE SPANISH STEPS!
PRIORITY CLUB MEMBERS ARE TREATED ESPECIALLY WELL.
WE WOULD CERTAINLY RETURN THERE FOR FUTURE STAYS IN ROME.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 24601 Magnificent Hotel, Staff, and Location
As with all IHG properties and InterContinental in particular, the staff as always was just magnificent. The courtesy and proactive helpfulness of the staff is reason enough to stay here. The location, literally a few feet from the top of the Spanish Steps and the surrounding area, is another. The roof top restaurant, with its excellent food and drink, is staffed by absolutely top notch, friendly, knowledgable - I hesitate to call them wait staff as they are much much more. The restaurant view is incredible and the staff bent over backwards (manually and repeatedly) to ensure we were happy. My thanks again all. I stayed with Reward Night points and so won't comment on the value other than to say my room price had no impact on the friendly service that I and my quests received. Everyone involved really took care of us. I have to recommend this hotel as a gateway to Rome.

Back at the De La Ville to celebrate our first anniversary of wedding. We have booked the rom two month before the stay and were a bit desappointed by the room we get ).
But this De La Ville is still our favorite in Roma.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amelia06 Overrated
This was going to be the highlight of our trip to Italy but the hotel did not live up to their reputation. We stayed by the Spanish Steps during our previous trips to Rome and this was a dream of mine to stay here but unfortunately it was a disappointment. Rooms are very compact but clean. In room wi-fi was 23.00 euros a day which seems to be the norm lately. Concierge gave us a price of 48.00 euros to the airport but ended up paying 65.00 euros - doorman put us in a cab that did not have the price indicated which we didn't notice until we had to pay. Staff is not overly helpful or friendly.
All in all, I think the hotel is overrated and would not recommend it. This was not the way we wanted to end our Italy trip.

We celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at this location. We felt warmly welcomed. The hotel and staff met our expectations and they went above and beyond to provide the most accommodating and memorable experience. Their attention to detail is truly outstanding. The hotel is beautiful, clean and possesses an understated elegance. The prime location made this a perfect choice. We most definitely recommend this particular hotel for any stay in Rome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chrisim The best in Italy, not just Rome
This is the best hotel experience we had in the country. The staff was the best: friendly, helpful, tried to defend us from unscrupulous cabbies. Most staff speak English well. All of them were always cheerful. They changed our money, went to train station for us, etch. They offer services no one else does. Besides all that, the place is beautiful!,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobD53 Fantastic stay
The staff went out of the way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The staff was friendly and made our stay feel like we were regulars even though it was our first visit. We were impressed with the cleanliness and fantastic location,walking distance to several tourist sights throughout Rome. Cab service and metro and bus service also convienant to this hotel.we had read several reviews before we went and we were blown away on the outstanding hospitatality that we received. On a scale of 1-10 it was a 12. I stayed in over 200 hotels in 2012 and 85 in 2013 and this stay was the by far the best. Thank you for a wonderful visit to Rome your staff made our vacation feel like we were your guests not just another customer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pkarp Nice Hotel, good customer service / friendly helpful staff
Having seen some of the previous reviews, we stayed at this hotel with some trepidation. Being Platinum Ambassadors, we got upgraded to a Junior Suite (as it was available). I must say that this made a BIG difference to our experience as the original room we were given was quite pokey. Very, very comfortable bed. Bathroom was clean.
Everyone talks about the location of the hotel - I actually found the location less than favourable as it is a little distant from all the sites we wanted to visit. Having said that, Rome is not huge, so its not a big problem.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
A surprisingly small number of TV Channels available for free - most of the decent TV and all of the movies required an extra 20 Euros....a bit disappointing.
Gym is small (2 x running machines, 1 x Rower and 1 bike(?) only).
Didn't eat in the restaurant, but the 6th floor bar and restaurant offers some great views.
Overall, a nice, comfortable hotel and good staff made it a very pleasant stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AnaR84 Not the price you pay
The hotel is too expensive for what they offer. The per night rate is too high for them not to offer things such as TV channels. You have to pay for the TV channels which is outrageous. If your are paying 300+ euros a night you should be getting more. Its just about location as it is located in the heart of Rome just 2 min walk from the Spanish steps.
The concierge though, was wonderful. Wonderful service from them. Helpful at all times.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SirIvanHoe1121 Consistency is key
My wife and I stayed for 4 full days and we enjoyed very much staying in this hotel. I am an Intercon Ambassador and there are things that I expect from staying in any Intercon. Though the room sizes are relatively small - we were upgraded to a suite and this would've been a standard room in the Middle East or in some European Intercon hotels like the London Park Lane - , what you would expect of an Intercon are all available. The bathroom and amenities were great - am very happy that they did not spare expenses on this one - you had many towels, a heating rack, the tub was large enough, and you had everything you needed. The bed was standard Intercon - good pillows and blankets. The TV system was also standard, with local and international channels, shows and films on demand for a fee, and your guest account. We had a lovely terrace overlooking the city. We also loved the free bottle of wine. Breakfast was excellent but expensive! The De La Ville eating areas are very lovely though. We loved the staff - all accommodating and helpful. The concierge introduced us to La Rosetta, which is now one of our favorite restaurants - we'll definitely visit it again. The location is perfect, just 1 minute to the Spanish Steps! I understand why guests would comment about room sizes, but apparently, this is a 17th century building. I would say that larger rooms would be better of course. The suite could be improved in terms of the sitting area, just make it more "suite" standard. Also the AC needs some fixing, we were lucky that the weather was generally cool and we kept the terrace door slightly open to let the cool air come in. When you get into the hotel, you'd think that it was really tiny, but they make the most out of the building. Perhaps they could redesign the lobby to make it newer and roomier. We would definitely stay here again - the service standards are consistent with what you'd expect from an Intercon and this matters a great deal to us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DV13 I would stay again
We stayed from April 10-13. Nice hotel, very centrally located (you can walk to most tourist attractions). The infrastructure is OK, not great, but OK. The rooms are expensive, maybe too high, but the service makes up for it. Of particular mention was the weekday bell captain. Very friendly, without being stuffy, extremely helpful with cabs, directions, and suggestions. He alone made the stay worthwhile.
They let us check in at 9:00 in the morning which was much appreciated after an overnight trip from the US.
The rooftop bar / restauarant opened the week we were there. It was cold at night, but was nice. The view is overrated (neighboring buildings block many views), but once again, the service was great.
Overall, the hotel staff made our trip very enjoyable and we appreciate it.

We were very fortunate to stay in the De La Ville Roma hotel in March 2013. Terrific location. Excellent breakfasts with terrific wait staff, especially Ciro. Also all of the concierge staff were attentive, eager and very knowledgeable. I would unequivocally suggest this property strongly to friends/colleagues (as we have already done).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Willfam Couldn't ask for More
This is my first and probably only review, so that may say something. We got to the hotel at 8am and we were allowed to check extra early, which was great since we were coming off a 20 hour travel day. The Ambassador status paid off and we got upgraded to a suite that was wonderful and they even upgraded my in-laws since I booked their room for them.
The building is old, but it had such great character that was needed for a vacation in Rome. And if I wanted a modern feel I would have booked at the Crown Plaza outside of the city center. The rooms were comfortable and the location couldn't be beat. We walked almost to every location and took the metro around also.
The staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. We got recommendations and directions to everything we did. The only thing that bothered me was the outrageous charge for WiFi. Other than that, I wouldn’t think twice about staying there again. It will be my first choice in Rome when I go back.
