All up I stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Invictus - 2 at the beginning of my trip and 1 at the end. Hotel was in a good location - 50 min walk to The Vatican. 15 mins to Spanish Steps. Huge plus was breakfast being served from early on which enabled me to get walking early in the day. Staff were extremely amenable - they even kept two pairs of shoes I left behind because they knew I was coming back!
Service was excellent from the moment we arrived until we left for the airport. I arrived from HK and my daughter from NY and although it was too early to check in, they did everything to make us feel welcome and arranged showers and massage in the Spa. The room was very roomy and the extra bed was a queen size bed...
Great location, upgrade one of our two rooms (adult room) to a big suite with kids room next door. Concierge always helpful and worked on multiple restaurant bookings for our stay as well as recommendations for both meals and tours.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Everything was great, the only thing that would prevent the hotel from being perfect would probably be the comfort of the bed.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and the staff were helpful and friendly.
Very good location, staff very nice but older style rooms are not 5 star, they're ok but looking tired. If I had payed much more than I did I would have been disappointed with the room. We were however given the option to upgrade to the lovely new rooms for €120 euros per night. The new rooms look much more like the 5 star the hotel is aiming for and better suit the foyer etc but the upgrade cost was a little steep for us.
Two blocks from the Via Veneto, near the Villa Borghese. Greeted by helpful, friendly staff on every occasion we needed assistance. We were upgraded (I hadn't stayed in Rome for over 30 years so there was no special relationship to merit the upgrade) to a room on the top floor with views overlooking the city. Should I return to Rome in the next dozen years, this is definitely where I will look to stay.
Made famous by 'La Dolce Vita' film in 1960, the Via Veneto is going through a glamorous renaissance. Bars, restaurants, chic hotels and boutiques all vie for attention in the street which coined the expression 'paparazzo' – the surname of the photojournalist in the film. Nearby, the Spanish Steps are the place for lovers' trysts, shopping, and honing the Italian art of 'dolce far niente' – idling and people-watching.
