“Fantastic location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

We were upgraded to a junior suite when the hotel was told that were celebrating our wedding anniversary.
Nice size suite.
Main downside: the bed - two singles joined together. My side seemed to be on wheels and would move from under me if i was sitting in bed. The bed moved away from the headboard and my pillows kept falling down. Did inform the hotel reception but nothing changed. Far from ideal. Didnt try food as it was v v expensive and there are so many other options nearby to try.

We stayed for 3 nights 11/16 - 11/19/2011. Because it was our 25th anniversary we were upgraded to room 105. Great view of the piazza and the fountain. However, because we were on the 1st floor it was a bit noisy, especially on Friday night. The room was very large and extremely clean. Breakfast was fantastic with a large selection. The location if fantastic. We were just minutes from everything. The only time we needed a taxi was to the Colosseo and the Vatican. We will definitely stay at this location on our next visit to Rome.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel offer an excellent view but can be a bit noisy.

Went to Rome for a 4 days weekend. We had room 211, non-smoking room. Room was a good size, the bathroom was spotless, only missing a curtain to prevent the water from sprinkling all over the place while showering...
Breakfast was great with a buffet, fresh fruit, cakes, croissants, breads, yoghurt, eggs, etc..
Service at the reception was very friendly and helpful at all times.
The location is perfect walking distance from all majors attractions and shopping areas. We walked all over the city, our feet were dead after four days, but what a wonderful weekend!

If you're lucky you'll get a room looking at the Bernini Fountain. The best part of this hotel is that it's within walking distance of the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps. There are lots of restaurants close, but don't get caught in one of the many tourist restaurants. Make sure you get some pizza.

Be prepared, the rooms are small, the refrigerator stands by itself with the tv on top, but you're in Rome.

We stayed for 3 nights while seeing all the great art and history of Rome. We found the Bernini Bristol to have a great location, but so-so elsewhere and staffing in the bar and Terrace restaurant was hard to find, inattentive and not interested on serving their clientele. Very disappointing. The staff at the concierge desk and hotel desk were fine and provided us very satisfactory service.

I chose this hotel as the tail end of our wedding anniversary trip to Italy. The hotel is located within short walking distance to everywhere and is right in front of Metro station and a taxi stand. I did extensive research to find the best deal available before booking, and this time "I Prefer" perks with Amex worked the best. We enjoyed 4 nights in a Deluxe Room overlooking Piazza Barberini. Despite the fact that the hotel is right in front of a busy traffic circle, our room was very quiet. Be sure to include the wonderful breakfast buffet. Unfortunately, there was mold started to grow on the wall right above the door inside the bathroom in which triggered my allergies. Other than that, our stay at Bernini Bristol was wonderful. We highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a great hotel experience in Rome.

Room Tip: Try a room overlooking the Piazza Barbelini.

The Bristol Hotel is a perfectly acceptable tourist hotel, being ideally situated for the 'must-see' sights.

The staff were friendly and the lobby is comfortable. The roof top bar and restuarant have great views and are very comfortable. However, the room was 'ok' at best, and certainly not one would expect from a 5-star restaurant. In fact, it was a bit tired (wardrobes didn't shut properly and the plug sockets were fragile and precarious).

However, the rate was reasonable and provided a better guide as to what to expect.
