Nice place in a good location, central to lots of attractions, not on a main road, so nice and quiet. Taxis are stupid expensive from the Termini Station, (30 Euros for a 5 minute ride). I suggest taking the metro to Barberini Station, a 3 minute walk to the hotel and a 3 Euro alternative for 2 people. DO NOT eat at the restaurant, worst pasta I have ever had and my wife hated her steak, 65 Euros. Better food at Barberini Piazza, 2 minutes away for 10 Euros.

Very professional and friendly staff. The hotel is very well located closed to metro as well as Trevi Fountain and Piazza di Spagna. The room was great except that there was barely no light coming from outside. This was due to the door opening on a small inner area that was (temporarily I guess) covered to protect from the sun. Air conditioning was. We found the roof top restaurant excellent.

The hotel staff were very polite and helpful. The bedroom was good and had the added facility of a private patio. Its a pity that the roof garden was closed (late October). Breakfast was adequate. The Rossini restaurant, next door, was an escape from the hustle and bustle of Rome, and is thoroughly recommended for its quality, service and value for money. The hotel is well located for visits to well known historical sites and monuments.

Everything about the hotel was lovely. Because of the euro rate of exchange it did seem a little expensive but that would have been the case wherever you stayed. The only downside was that the hotel had a lovely roof terrace for evening dining which was not used during the day - it would have been nice if guests could have used this as a "chill out" area during the day. That is my only criticism and would recommend to others.

Our room was not very spacious and the AC did not work well. It was May, and we had to open the window, which allowed the noise in. Rome is expensive and the location was excellent which explains the high room rate. Most of the staff was knowledgeable. One staff completely miscommunicated instructions to our adult children who arrived in the morning. As a result they left to go to the Vatican because the front desk staffer did not tell them we were in our room.It was our only day with them in Rome so we were very disappointed.

I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Rome - great location, excellent staff, and spacious room and (especially) bath, atleast by European standards. Also, the breakfast was much more substantial than most I have had at European hotels, including eggs and fresh toast. Again, one of the best European hotels I've ever stayed in.

The location of the hotel is great for exploring Rome on foot (not that I did). It is walking distance to most of the must see sights and I must say that choosing this hotel for my first trip to Rome was a good choice. The rooms are clean but not too big. It is off a main road so noise was not a problem. But do arrange for the hotel for airport pick up as it could be a little tricky to find if you take the bus or metro if you are not yet orientated to Rome. But take a taxi back to the airport on departure as its cheaper than the limo service. Don't expect all the frills of a 4-5 star hotel. Its a small and cosy hotel and I would definitely stay there again on my next trip. Overall a positive experience. Hope this is helpful.

This was our first trip to Rome and the hotel was located in a perfect spot. Easy to get to all of the area attractions, cafes, and other transportation. The concierge was wonderful and very friendly. We stayed in one of the suites which was very nice, and "Peter Pan" was playing at the theater and we could hear the music. The shows usually end around 11:30 or midnight. Also...no electrical outlets in the bedrom loft area in case you need one. Great experience overall and highly recommend it. Nicola was fabulous!

We stayed at the hotel on two different occasions, but within the same week, due to going on a two day tour in the middle of the week. The first time was for 3 days 8-11 Sept '07 and the second from 13-15 Sept '07. The first stay over had us upgraded to a suite, which was a brilliant surprise on our arrival to Rome, however one issue which comes to mind is that the airconditioner did not work hat well, as it did not reach the bedroom upstair which made it impossible to sleep. On the second stay we were given a smaller room, with a double bed, however the amenities were all found to be great, no problems from memory, it was all good. Our general experience of the hotel was that all visitors were greeted by the hotel staff with a professional approach, the hotel seemed to be managed well and all amenities in the hotel were in good order and were accessible. The hotel is situated centrally to all necessary transportation, shops, laundry, restaurants & banks. Overall we found our experience with the Hotel to be quite outstanding, apart from the general noise provided by the maintenance being carried out in the hotel during our stay, otherwise we have no regrets.

We stayed for three nights just this past August 11, 2007 and we certainly have a great time in Rome. Especially that the hotel Ottocento has a great location and the staff is beyond excellent! The bathroom is clean, and it is such new and modern. The room itself is spacious enough with a king-size bed. The food is great as well as the restaurant upstairs. Nevertheless, what we really like most aside from the room are the staff, very knowledgeable with friendly atmosphere especially to Nicko and Patricia. Surely, I will spread the word about this great hotel and certainly, I will stay again in Ottocento when I come back to Rome. Mary Ann and Viola, New York

Hotel was clean particularly our room & restaurant for breakfast. Staff were generally helpful, however there wasn't much tourist information in the hotel so we just went forth into Rome and found our own way (when we asked Reception staff one or two were a bit gruff but majority were helpful). Great location as we were able to walk to all major attractions & the hotel's immediate area was quite safe. Rome in general was extremely expensive for food and drink and this hotel was no exception to the rule! However overall we enjoyed it and would recommend to a friend.

The staff, facilities and atmosphere of the Ottocento were all excellent! An oasis of quiet and warm hospitality in the middle of a very energetic city. We were fortunate enough to have 2 nights in a very nicely decorated, top-floor room, with an attractive view of the neighbouring rooftop gardens. Great location for sightseeing and strolling - walked to several sights and only 2 blocks to the subway/Metro for the rest! The rooftop restaurant is worth a visit for the atmosphere, but the food is the one area that the Ottocento needs to bring up to their otherwise high standards. The Ottocento will be our first choice and recommendation for any future trips to Rome.

With regard to the "Quietness of Rooms": two of the three mornings we were there, there was a LOT of noise being made (construction of some sort - hammering and power tools) beginning at 0700! It was ridiculously early for that sort of activity. The hotel restaurant left a lot to be desired. Breakfast was good, but the dinner we had was not. There was one woman who worked in the restaurant at breakfast who was very unpleasant. She seemed miserable and she was not the kind of person you'd choose to start your day with. The rest of the staff was friendly and helpful, including the cleaning staff. There was one gentleman at the reception desk/concierge who was a bit too friendly. He talked too much and sang a lot of Barbara Streisand. At first it was kind of charming/quirky, but it got old fast. Overall, we did have a good experience at this hotel. It was clean & safe and conveiently located. I would go back and would recommend it to others (with a few caveats).

We stayed at Ottocento for 7 nights and were thoroughly impressed by the hotel, particularly the friendliness and professional demeanor of the staff. The hotel location is wonderful for walking around Rome-- about 5 minutes to the Spanish steps, 5 minutes to Trevi Fountain. The breakfast was very good (bread, croissants, meat, cheese, cereals, fruit, yogurt, pastries, fresh juices, etc.). Also, when staying at the hotel, be sure to visit the crypt of the church right up the street at the intersection of Via Veneto and Via dei Cappucini!

Ottocento was simply wonderful. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful, whether asking for directions, recommendations or a very late nite bottle of water, or just chatting, they were as pleasant as can be. The hotel itself was the perfect combination of a small, European feeling and the cleanliness an ammenities of a superior (more expensive) hotel. The rooftop restaurant, whether for drinks or dinner, is so romantic. The breakfasts were hearty and quite good. Via Capucini is a wonderful little street, although difficult to find the first time. Tucked in behind Piazza Barberini, it seems out of the way, but is convenient to everything. The only negative was that one night, the people below us were very loud and the sound could be heard through our window. I would recommend Ottocento everytime (although not for kids). We will definitely return. (Make sure you meet Patrizia and Paolo behind the desk. She is terrific and he's a joy.)

We had booked for two nights at Ottocento. We could not have our room for the first night and we were moved to Hotel Barocco, just few meters away. As we came back to Ottocento for the second night, we were upgraded to a junior suite. Barocco and Ottocento are two nice hotels in a perfect location. Rooms are small and cosy in both hotels. Ottocento rooms have nice jacuzzi bathtubs. Staff is more friendly at Ottocento and public areas are more attractive. I would go back to Ottocento!

We stayed in a triple room, a little small but we were only in our rooms to sleep so it didn't matter. The rooms were very clean and bathrooms were wonderful, especially the jacuzzi tub which was a wonderful way to relax after being on my feet all day in Rome. We were checking out very early in the morning (4:30 a.m.) and transportation arrangements from the hotel to the airport were all made for us with no problems, telephone messages were delivered promptly and although the breakfast was not available due to our very early departure, the person on duty at the front desk was nice enough to go to the bar and make us all a cappuccino before we left. Would definitely stay at this hotel again. You couldn't beat the price/quality and location factor for Rome.

Location is excellent and it's really quiet. Breakfast is served until 10.30 but by 10am each morning there was virtually nothing left so recommend that guests get up early! Prices in the bar were very steep (€6 for cappuccino!).

The property was nice and most of the staff was helpful. There appeared to be a tension between staff and management and it eemed to be management;s practice to cut corners over nickeles and dimes. eg, american type boiled ham and bland cheeses and porr breads at breakfast. One male staff member seemede more interested in directing us to businesses in which he appeared to be overly interested than in loo9king out for our interests.

Our stay at ottocento was wonderful. The staff was warm and gracious. As I have said the room was very clean and I loved the jacuzzi tub after walking all over Rome. I would highly recomend this hotel for good food and fair pricing. Janet Lee

The staff at the reception desk were wonderful! After we check-in, the first thing they did was took out a city map and circle all the sight-seeing places for us. We thought it was really fantastic without us asking them! They were very helpful and always had a smile each time we left and came back to the hotel. They made us felt very welcome and we had a wonderful time in Rome. Hotel location was great too! Will certainly recommend hotel to anyone who wants to feel at home in a foreign city.

myself and my wife stayed at Albergo Ottocento for our 10th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The hotel staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. They had organised champagne for us at my request for our arrival, chilled a very special bottle for us, organised travel to and from the airport etc. The location was excellent, 5 minutes from the Spanish Steps - excellent for a city like Rome that is best seen on foot. Roof terrace while not having great views was nice. The room was upgraded for us - it was nice, clean and exactly what we needed. The desk staff were great. The only slightly negative comment is that we thought the restaurant was mediocre and a little overpriced. Small quibble really considering there are so many good restaurants within 5 minutes walk. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Last week my wife and I spend three nights in the Ottocento to celebrate our first anniversary. The staff were very attentive and couldn't have been more helpful. We stayed in both the suite and standard double rooms. Both of which had high standards of decoration from real wood floors to solid marble washhand basins and spa baths. The main difference being the suite was it is split over two floors. We didn't partake in the restaurant or roof garden, as we wanted to go further afield in the evenings. However, for your first evening meal if you are too tired to do more walking. I would suggest going out of the Hotel doors turning left toward the main road and on that road either the Hotel Alex street bistro or Ciao Bella restaurant inside (watching the chef cook fresh pizzas) I would return to Rome and my first choice hotel would be Ottocento. It is only 200 meters from the Spanish steps with the furthest attraction (St. Peter’s Square and the Coliseum) being some 35 min walk away in opposing directions. Just a small tip – Visit the Sistine chapel on the Sunday midday, as the queues are thinner and move faster as the entry is free. This is the same for the Coliseum, which you can visit in the morning. I would then suggest visiting St. Peter’s Basilica in the early evening (4.30) as the queues are shorter and the temperature lower. Take the queue for the Dome (shorter) then catch the lift at the front of the Vatican roof back down into the Basilica. This route guarantees you’ve beaten the queues and also you get to admire the mosaics on the roof of the Vatican roof. Paris used to be my favourite city but now it has to be Rome. Throw a coin in the Trevi fountains and make your return a certainty (well if you believe the legend) lol

Great location near the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps on a charming side street. Our room had stylish, modern decor and a very spacious, well-appointed bathroom. We were pleased with how quiet it was. Breakfast was good...lots of delicious, strong coffee, juices, cereals, eggs, and a selection of breads. The desk personnel were friendly and helpful. I'll definitely return (I threw my coin in the Trevi, right?).

We felt very welcome in the hotel and they offered great service with a spacious room. Our room (501) had a nice patio as well with a table outside, which was nice for the afternoons. The location was very close to one metro stop, which was convenient to reach far away sites. You could walk to several sites easily as well. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay and recommend the hotel.

An excellent choice in central Rome. Very good value for the price based on my observation of other web offerings. My downgrade of cleanliness was only the result of some minor mold staining of shower stall tiles. Otherwise the room was quite tidy but small - not unusual for European city hotels in this quality catagory and that is reflected in the price. Good breakfast buffet. Friendly staff.

The Hotel staff was very helpful and the breakfast buffet was the best we had during our entire trip in Italy. The location of the Hotel is convenient to the Spanish Steps and the shopping in that part of the city. We had a group of 4 couples and needed a spot not too far from the Termini train station for ease in making the other legs of our travel. We had been in Rome before and had done all the sightseeing we had wanted to do. The Ottocento was located close to our favorite restaurant Alla Rampa in Piazza Mignanelli and we wanted to eat there our last night in Italy.

This hotel is very well situated in relation to all the major attractions and is in a very nice area. My overall stay was pretty good. Just a few words of advice: do not take the recommendations for restaurants that are given to you by Nicola, I believe that he gets a comission for sending people to certain restaurants and I got sick in one of them. Do not book any tours that are offered via the hotel, they are a waste of money.

Hotel Ottocento was a welcome oasis in the midst of a Roman heatwave this summer. The A/C was extremely effective, the bathroom was luxurious for the price paid, and the staff were very professional. My wife and I also had a memorable but positive dining experience at the rooftop terrace with a young waiter who spoke surprisingly little English. The food there, however, was excellent. The only negative aspect is that the hotel is a bit far from the main roads, but that helps keep its cost below that of other Via Veneto properties. The subway is conveniently close by.

Very clean hotel by American standards. Staff is professional and helpful. Rooms are very quiet. Bathrooms are very spacious, clean, well apointed, and well stocked. My only significant complaint is that my room air conditioner was not cold enough. The other two hotels I stayed at in Florence and Venice had much colder room air conditioning. I had to open the room windows and I woke up many times a night due to the heat. The lobby had very cold air conditioning but my room did not. I had no control over room air conditioner temperature. Hotel is located in a very convenient location close to metro, taxi stand, Green Line Tours bus stop, and a 5 to 10 minute walk to the spanish steps. Breakfast was good with scrabled eggs and very good warm rolls. One brown haired coffee server in the breakfast room is sweet and helpful and the blonde server has the personality of a zombie - but thats ok.

We booked two rooms for four nights at Ottocento for my wife and two daughters. The rooms were adjacent as we requested and we had a very nice corner room on the fourth floor where we were able to use the rooftop patio as if it were our own. The service was wonderful, the location excellent, and the value, relatively speaking, was very good. We read a lot of reviews prior to booking that talked about the size of the rooms being very small. Compared to American rooms they are small but are very typical of European rooms. We found them to be more than adequate. If you are going to sit around in your hotel room, why bother going on vacation? We visited two other hotels that were much more expensive in Florence and in Venice but the breakfast at the Ottocento was by far the best. My only complaint is the air conditioning in both rooms was not adequate to handle the summer heat in Rome. We could not enjoy our wonderful view from the corner room because we had to keep the shutters closed and the bathroom door closed to keep out any heat caused by sunlight. This kept the rooms bearable but something needs to be done to upgrade the air conditioning.

We had a excellent time at the Hotel Ottocento and we will return again. Staff was excellent very informative, their english was good which helps visitors when they do not speak Italian. The only disappointing thing was when we arrived there was a lot of rubbish bins outside on the otherside of the street which could be a bit off putting when you first arrived. I understand the streets are quite narrow maybe they could be placed at the back of hotels if there is space, but apart from that there is nothing I could complain about. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

This "hotel" is in the heart of the shopping area and just a couple of blocks away from the Spanish Steps and the surrounding shopping areas. Our first hint of trouble came when we boarded the elevator - no more than two normally healty people can fit into this eleveator. We had a junior suite booked for the first night and a suite for the subsequent nights. The junior suite was very small in comparison to American hotel room - in fact smaller than a typical regular room in the USA (yes, we are spoilt!).But the clincher came when they moved us into the "suite" the next day. If you sat on the couch and extended your legs, you would hit the TV which was up against the other side of the room. The living room was probably no more than 6' wide and the bed was upstairs. So, if you wanted to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, you would have to go down the stairs, half alseep, make your way through the suez canal (living room) and then get to the bathroom. I had visions of my wife tumbling down the stairs to get to the bathroom. We decided to leave the hotel and go to the Hilton. They charged us for an additional night even though we left before 2 pm and did not use the "suite". Oh well, we learned. On a more positive note, they have a restaurant downstairs, nextdoor, maybe operated by someone else, that serves very good food in the evenings for dinner and at a good price compared to other restaurants. Would I stay there again? - NO. Would I recommend it to people not fussy about room size? - YES. They have good people working there and the place was very clean. Great location. My suggestion would be for them to knock down the walls between a couple of rooms and make larger suites - and charge more, but give more space!

The Ottocento was a small boutique style hotel with little curbside appeal on a small side street, but was very nice inside and in a very upscale neighborhood convenient to sightseeing. I was surprised at how small the rooms were, but I think that's a function of being in Rome. The room was clean and the bathroom was really nice and looked recently renovated. Breakfast in the morning was nicely laid out and the service was friendly. Almost all the employees at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, but one night we asked for some restaurant recommendations and the front desk would only recommend the hotel's restaurant. I found this quite irritating because we wanted to explore a different part of the city. Also - I asked for an iron to press my skirt that I wanted to wear out that evening. The response from the front desk was that I had to use their overpriced "pressing service" which would not be available until the next morning. Other than those encounters, I was happy with the hotel.
