My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Splendide Royal over 5 nights for a romantic getaway in Rome. The experience overall was absolutely perfect. The hotel offers an effective balance between traditional Italian hospitality and world-class luxury standards.
Arranging our stay here within only a month of travel was very easy and organized. We booked transfers from the Fiumicino airport, an evening at their Mirabelle restaurant (see my other review), breakfasts and a Junior Suite effortlessly, during an otherwise busy period.
As if this would suggest their fantastic service, upon arrival at the hotel, the reception assisted with every arrangement and double-checked reservations. Since they were available, I was even shown around the hotel suites upon request, which are truly phenomenal. After settling into our room, the concierge offered a knowledgable service on attractions and dining in Rome, booking us a table at a few restaurants during our spend including Ad Hoc (see my other review).
The view from our room (situated next to the Presidential Suite) was exceptional, looking over the entirety of Rome across the Villa Borghese and Vatican City in the distance. We had a small veranda to sit and relax whilst basking in the Italian heat wave at this time, yet the air conditioning in the room was superb keeping our nights' sleep at a more comfortable temperature.
Another wonderful surprise was that Hotel Splendide Royal is connected with the top-end Parco dei Principi in Rome, where we had access to their 7* Prince Spa. We've never experienced anything quite like it; the spa was an incredible relief from the hot weather at the end of an eventful day.
It's difficult to sum-up just how fantastic our visit to Rome and stay at the Hotel Splendide Royal was. Everything seemed to fit together harmoniously, so much so that we in fact extended our initial 3 nights' stay to 5. Needless to say, the hotel reception even rearranged flights and transfers to suit.
The overall atmosphere in this hotel is not pretentious, and truly satisfies your desire for a luxurious Roman experience.
