RomanLife 2 cents: The Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy may not be as central as other areas of Rome, like the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain or Spanish Steps, however one should not underestimate the relax factor.

Review of Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy: it felt to us as if we were returning home...

view full Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy review » « hide review of Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy

I was concerned with some reviews about the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy which mentioned the location of the property being too far removed from certain Rome touristic sites. Agreed, the Lord Byron Hotel is not in the prime tourist center of Rome, but we found this to be an added benefit. It was away from the noise, congestion and general hectic pace of Central Rome. A nice retreat from the action of the central Rome and only a $7 cab ride from even the most removed Rome tourist venues e.g. The Vatican city and Castel Sant Angelo, which are in any case just across the river.

The hotel Staff were delightful and full of appropriate recommendations for Vatican Tours, day trips from Rome, local traditional restaurants, the best pizzerias, the newest "in places", etc. The Hotel lord Byron Rome Italy is wonderfully maintained in the art deco style (not for everyone) with beautiful common areas, it felt to us as if we were returning home after a long day/night on the town.

Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy

I have stayed in a number of hotels throughout Rome, and several in Italy. Many are charming and attempt to be unique, however few actually are memorable or unique, and even fewer rise to the level of truly outstanding. The Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy is in a class of its own.

Our first stay at the Lord Byron was several years ago and the result of a recommendation by a friend. The staff at this wonderful hotel received me as if I had only stayed there last week. They saw to my every need, and often went beyond what was expected of them, they made me feel as if I were staying with friends rather than with strangers in another country. My first visit was the beginning of a beautiful relationship I have been fortunate to enjoy for a number of years.

Every time I return to Rome, there is one factor that never needs to be considered, and that is which accommodation or hotel in Rome to choose. I am now friends with many of the staff, and each time I visit my days with them are even more memorable than before. The hotel Byron employees take pleasure in providing first-class, unsurpassed service to those of us fortunate to stay with them.

I would recommend the delightful hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy (in fact I recommended it all the time to friends and associates who have traveled to Rome) to anyone, without a moment's hesitation. It is one of the very finest lodgings in all of Italy!

-- Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy --

My experiences at the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy began about ten years ago with a short November stay in Rome. Since then I have recommended both the hotel and its dining to all who go to Rome Italy. My family and I have spent both vacation and business travel at the Lord Byron and have always found the service to be absolutely wonderful. We stay in no other hotel in Rome. The rooms are beautiful, spacious, and cleaned twice daily. The breakfast buffet in the main dining hall has an array of selections for all tastes. The staff also cook to order. The bar is likewise beautiful and the gentleman who is always there will find whatever you want even if they do not have it. This hotel is something truly out of the past. As a family we travel continuously and have stayed at many supposed luxury 5 star hotels throughout Italy. None compare to the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy.

-- Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy --

I have stayed at the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy twice for business and both times were perfect. The location is central enough, but also quiet, and on the "right" side of the Villa Borghese - in my opinion. If you like to run or walk in the morning, the Borghese park is perfect for that.

Each time we visited Lord Byron hotel, the room has been spacious, immaculate and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms are huge. The bed is large, very comfortable and they have total block out blinds for a very sound night's sleep (or afternoon nap). The staff have always been courteous, professional and very helpful - even when I've arrived quite late in the evening.

The Lord Byron's Breakfast is excellent. The internet connection is efficient - I even had some connection problems which were quickly resolved with a toll free phone call to the ISP. Overall, the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy is a great hotel to which I will keep returning.

Review of the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy: This was the highlight of our trip to Italy...

-- Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy --

We spent lots of time searching online for the "right" hotel for our first trip to Rome. We checked all the usual suspects but each time kept returning to reviews on the Lord Byron Hotel. We love small, special and unique hotels and this one fits the bill spot on! Ours was a suite on the top (6th) floor which had a separate sitting room, bedroom and wonderful large bathroom (Note: The elevator only goes until the 5th floor, a flight of stairs is required to reach the top/6th floor).

The Art Deco is professionally done and fully integrates in every aspect into the Lord Byron hotel's design as well as its furnishings and decorations.
Even though it was October in Rome, it was still quite warm and we appreciated the AC units in the bedroom and sitting room. In the cool mornings we could opened up the big windows to let in the air and take in the beautiful views of the parks and villas from all sides. The bed was very large and comfortable, even for someone well over 6'. The bathroom was all white marble with 2 sinks, a separate bathtub and shower which was in a separate room with a toilet/bidet. The water pressure in the shower was a little weak but the water was warm and the view from the shower over the rooftops outside was inspiring!

The common rooms/areas are all impeccable and the staff is professional, courteous and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was a welcome addition and more than adequate to start the day's sightseeing and tours of Rome's attractions!

The Parioli neighborhood where the hotel is located is beautiful and conveniently close to the Borghese gardens. It made for some relaxing walks, and if you're a dog lover, there's a dog park at the end of the gardens which was always full of fun in the evenings. The Hotel lord Byron Rome Italy is a bit of a hike from the main central Rome tourist areas, however, in our opinion, this is a benefit, since you are able to retreat to the quiet, tranquil beauty of the Lord Byron hotel in the evenings.

We walked a few times into the central touristic areas of Rome and especially enjoyed the scenery along the way. At other times we also took taxi's to Rome's tourist center and back. The distance by cab is very short and the fare was never more than 10 Euros, usually around 7 Euros. Bottom line - if you like to be in the thick of the action then you'll probably want to stay closer to the central Rome touristic areas. If you are looking for somewhere in Rome to relax in the evenings in a beautiful surrounding then the hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy is the place for you.

Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy

This was the highlight of our trip to Rome and Italy. From the first e-mail received from the hotel Reservations Manager, Melita, whose efficiency confirmed our beliefs in wanting to stay at The Lord Byron in the beautiful city of Rome. The hotel's resident manager, Marco, also kindly helped us with our flights and went out of his way to ensure our trip home was smooth.

We were made to feel so welcome, and they organized everything including our taxi's speedily and professionally. Rome taxi fare was cheap in comparison to Florence and the drivers are a wealth of information. Everything was reachable with ease and we enjoyed staying a little out of the center of Rome.

The Lord Byron Hotel is the cleanest hotel we have stayed in, the housekeepers deserve an award as it makes all the difference. Everything sparkles, looks pretty and smells fresh.It was surprising how dirty some of the 5-Star hotels in Rome and Italy are!

The Art Deco bedroom was delightful with large and airy linen and a superb mattress. The marble bathrooms are like hollywood standards with an array of toiletries. The dining room is picture perfect and the food was delicious. Everyone at this exclusive boutique 5 star hotel made us feel so welcome and the experience was unforgettable! The team at the hotel lord byron Rome Italy are a very special group and we are blessed to have met them.

My daughter and I spent four days in Rome at the end of a Mediterranean cruise. Our travel agent suggested the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy, thankfully, it was superb. It's location is in a gorgeous residential district, called Parioli, which is near Villa Borghese. From the moment we stepped out of our car until we left the service was exceptional. The hotel is quite small with 30 rooms, I believe, so the service is more stylized and personal. Everybody, from the porter to the concierge, remembered our names and went out of their way to make our first trip to Rome memorable. The decor is Art Deco, at its best. Our room was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated , all marble bathroom, with my favorite being the lovely quiet and private stone patio with beautiful surrounding landscape. The hotel restaurant was so nice that we ate most of our dinners there. There is a quiet formality the hotel lord Byron that sooths and relaxes.

Review of Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy: location is not in the center of the action, but then again it isn't that far out either...

view full Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy review » « hide review of Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy

In Rome I had checked into another hotel which, after one sleepless night and a multitude of other things wrong with the hotel I hastily reserved a room at Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy.

The location is not in the center of the action, but then again it isn't that far out either. It is next door to the Borghese park which has many touristic attractions of its own. The quickest way into Rome city Center it is an easy fifteen minute walk downhill to the Piazza del Popolo and then perhaps another five or seven minutes to the Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna). Of course return walk uphill might take you longer, but if you are not in any desperate hurry then this shouldn't present any obstacle in your staying here. Alternatively a taxi to/from the Spanish Steps will only cost around 6 or 7 Euros. A plus side of this particular location in Rome City is being able to eat in local non touristy Roman restaurants filled with mostly local diners.

We stayed in a junior suite, lots of high gloss, high quality veneered furniture in art deco style. There were also red velvety carpets, and a couple of paintings to enhance the them. In addition there were two terraces, one large with a few pots containing mature orange trees, and a most delightful place to relax in the evening. The bathroom was half timbered, like a deck from a yacht and the remainder was decorated with large marble tiles. If I had to be very picky, then the bathroom should've had twin sinks and perhaps a separate shower. This art deco theme was also extended to the rest of the Lord byron hotel where once again objects/paintings from a different era added to the eclectic feel. Overall the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy gave one the impression of being on a yacht from the 30s.

The restaurant, which has a good reputation, was unfortunately closed during my stay so we only enjoyed breakfast at the hotel. There was the usual selection of four or so fruit juices. The orange juice was not "freshly squeezed" as per the label on the jug (this seems to be a common err at the Italian hotels where I stayed on my trip). Some scrambled eggs, bacon, cereals, fresh fruit, tinned fruit, yogurt, pastries, cheeses, etc. The selection was not expansive, but I would describe it as adequate. Compared to another hotel in Naples, the breakfast was vastly inferior. I would have preferred higher quality pastries instead of the warm croissants and danish pastries, and also local Italian cheeses instead of the Dutch stuff.

The hotel service throughout my four night stay was superb. The concierges and reception staff were extremely patient, professional and helpful. The room service was beyond professional, they even layed out and folded night clothes (which had been left on a chair) with the turndown service!

Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy

We were searching for a city hotel that was quiet and decided upon the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy. We were aware that it was a reasonable walk across a park to all the Rome hotspots and attractions - due to the extremely hot days we decided to take Rome taxis.

We reserved a suite at the lord Byron,of which there are only two with balconies. It's advertised that they look over the 'beautiful gardens',, however it's a road first, then high buildings and you only get a glimpse of gardens. The suite was fine but not such good value for money, even in a city hotel, but it was fairly spacious and the staff were very nice.

The dining room was in the basement and therefore lacked ambience. We enjoyed a cocktail in the bar before going out for dinner one evening, but we had to whisper as there was the barman a piano player and us. The front desk staff were very helpful. A highlight for us was being taken by the hotel car to the beautiful Tivoli gardens. Rome was a packed hot crowded nightmare. With queues and angenerally speaking an utter rip off wherever you went.

We asked the hotel for a dinner recommendation one night, so they sent us to a restaurant in the centre of Rome. When we arrived there were at least 4 other couples from the hotel. It was really nice but we ended up paying around £200 for the two of us: one starter, two main courses and one pud (we were starving when we left, portion control gone mad).
To summarise, the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy is a quiet and nice hotel away from the noise and crowds of Rome but it is a drag every time you want to go sightseeing in Central Rome

-- Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy --

The Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy is a nice luxury hotel in a green section of Rome far from the crowds. The staff were very friendly and the room was comfortable and stylish. The breakfast buffet was good but the coffee was not hot. Cappucinos were included, although they were a little weak.

I was a little disapponted with the hotels recommendation for a Rome restaurant. I asked the concierge to recommend a glamorous hot restaurant in Rome, and he sent us to a local Italian family restaurant, where, to my consternation, there were other guests of the restaurant who came with their strollers and babies. Obviously the concierge sends everyone to the same Rome restaurant no matter what you ask for, and probably getting a kickback.

Some things to keep in mind if you are thinking of staying at the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy: The hotel is not near the Spanish steps and the other tourists sites of Rome. It is a long walk and most people take a taxi. You might also find it a little trick getting a taxi to take you back to the hotel, and after a long day of sightseeing in Rome you will most likely not feel like walking back. Also, for a luxury hotel there is no fitness center. There are only 2 English language channels on TV and no pay per view movies. There are no DVD players or Ipod docks either, so bring a book. Over all, the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy is a very nice quiet small luxury hotel far from the hubub of Rome. If that is what you seek, then this is a good choice.

-- Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy --

The Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy is a delight. My husband and I are frequent travellers to Rome and fell in love with this exquisite boutique hotel from the first moment we arrived. It's new fresh welcoming and perfect for a relaxing pleasurable stay in the Rome city. The location at the edge of the Borghese Gardens is great and enabled us to benefit from a quiet, quality night’s rest (not always possible at many other top hotels in Rome). The hotel restaurant offers an outrageous selection of top Italian cuisine with honest prices. Our only regret was to have discovered this top Italian restaurant on our second last night. We will not make the same mistake our next time in Rome and Italy

Review of Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy: I absolutely loved this hotel ...

I absolutely loved the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy, and will certainly stay here again. It's charming hotel with incredibly helpful staff who have some great recommendations and are incredibly energetic and patient. The hotel itself is on the other side of the Rome Borghese gardens, which I preferred as I could sleep well at night - very peaceful and quiet.
My room was charming comfortable and with a beautiful stylish marble bathroom. Everything was incredibly clean cared for and very charming. I would highly recommend the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy, and would stay there again in a heartbeat! also the restaraunt was wonderful with delicious food and charming waitors!

-- Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy --

I was impressed by the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy. We were collected from Fiumicino Airport by the hotel Mercedes and very comfortably delivered to the hotel (worth every penny). Upon arrival we were smartly upgraded to a deluxe Double, which was very welcomed as the classic doubles seem a little on the small side. The hotel's best feature is the high level of service, all of the staff are exceedingly helpful courteous and go out of their way to help. The rooms were cleaned regularly and sheets and towels were changed daily.

My only complaint would be that the art décor and some of the furnishings could be described as a little tacky. For a 5 Star luxury hotel, one might expect a higher level of luxury. The wall to wall carpeting is not to everyone’s tasteand the televisions looked as though they dated back to the nineties. Lacking were more creature comforts such as a DVD/HiFi player, etc.

However, despite my utterings, we had an incredibly romantic weekend and it may be a cliché (and also the hotel's motto), but the hotel really did feel like a home where one is welcomed like friends as you enter. Location wise though, it is a little far from Rome touristic centre, but we did welcome walking off the gastronomic excesses by strolling through the beautiful Villa Borghese park. All in all, a most enjoyable stay at the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy

-- Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy --

We were supposed to stay at the new sister hotel of Lord Byron but problems with the hotel's opening meant we were re-booked into the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy. The Lord Byron is a beautiful quiet little hotel with really nice attentive staff and a great restaurant. This is not for those who like the hustle and bustle of Rome city center or extensive leisure facilities, but it is rather a super escape from the hectic pace of Rome. It's location is very close to the beautiful Villa Borghese park and museum and only a little bit of a walk to the main tourist traps of Rome.

The stroll is about 20 minutes plus minus to the Vatican, Rome town Centre, Roman Forums, Trevi fountain etc. The hotel is on top of a steep hill and therefore may not be suitable for those with mobility problems. Taxis are easy though and the hotel also has an hourly (10am until 6pm) shuttle bus.

-- Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy --

So far I am very impressed with the level of service I have received from the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy, and I have not even checked in yet! My trip to Rome is reserved for the first week of June 2008. I have to thank the Front Desk Manager and the Concierge Manager at the Lord Byron for going above and beyond to accommodate my requests. I had some difficulties trying to change a reservation I made for a Fine Hotel and Resort reservation in Italy. Melita and Laura have gone way beyond my expectations, they are so kind and sincere in their effort to help. I am looking forward to my holidaying in Rome and particularly my stay at the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy.

We have cherished memories from the Hotel Lord Byron Rome Italy

On our first trip to Rome and Italy, we were initially faced by a number of challenges that many travelers sometimes remember with more detail than the actual sights and history of their Italian trip. The Concierge Staff at the Lord Byron Hotel displayed such gracious sincere and professional assistance to us in solving our dilemnas that I will remember my stay at the Lord Byron Hotel with a warmth that will inevitably bring me back again and again.

We were provided with prompt kind and generous assistance, demonstrating a concern that went way beyond the concept of "luxury." One can purchase luxury, as we did in other hotels on this trip through Italy, but not that quality of service. For that, one needs a special type of person. Thank you Andrea, Claudia, and Marco at the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy for providing us with such a sweet memory.

-- Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy --

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy in November 2008. We booked the whole trip ourselves by first researching hotel and other reviews on the internet. Our first stop was in Rome, and the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy was our first hotel. Everything about the Lord Byron was fantastic.

From the time I called from the States to the time we left on the train to Florence the service was excellent. It may be a little off the beaten path from downtown Rome, but this hotel is worth it. After a long day of siteseeing and shopping in Rome it was a pleasure to be back at this little gem of a hotel.

One night my husband and I went down to the cosy bar of the hotel and a group of very attractive Roman women were assembled. One of the ladies got up and started acting out a type of play to her friends, we were not able to understand, but you couldn't take your eyes off of her. It turns out she was reciting Dante to her friends!

The hotel rooms are gorgeous, the staff is helpful without intruding, and the food was fantastic. There is so much more that I can say about the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy, all of which would be positive. We have also stayed at their sister hotel, the Regency in Forence, which is on par with the Lord Byron, also a gem.

-- Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy --

I stayed at the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy back in October 2007 with a friend of mine for four evenings. It exceeded our expectations every way. The rooms were immaculately clean and comfortable. Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted by name and told that we would be upgraded to a Junior suite. This was a blessing seeing as how the standard room sizes in Rome can be on the smaller side. The room was very large and had a balcony overlooking the front of the property with a large marble tiled bathroom. The front desk staff and the concierge were all very helpful to point out local restaurants and sights to see in Rome. Breakfast was included in our booking so we made an effort to get downstairs each morning. There were many fresh pastries, fruits, breads, etc. and the serving staff were professional and courteous.

The only caveat I have for the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy is the location. It is not in the city center of Rome but in a suburb near Villa Borghese. It cost a little extra in time and money to take taxis to and from the major Rome sights, and the walk into the center of Rome is brisk, no shorter than 30 minutes, and we are active twenty-somethings. Also, be sure to leave plenty of time available for the taxi queue down the street from the hotel, we almost missed our tour of the Vatican Scavi waiting for a cab with other tourists for 30 minutes.

-- Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy --

This was our 4th trip to Rome and was a romantic weekend getaway for my husband and I. We were very happy with the look and feel of the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy and the service was excellent. Our hotel room was a good size, certainly large by Rome standards with elegant decor, a big tub and large fluffy towels. Our beds were also turned down every evening with complimentary slippers placed next to the bed - a nice touch.

We both enjoyed the Lord Byron's hotel bar very much, but were slightly disappointed with the Sapori restaurant. The service was excellent, appetizers were fabulous, wine and deserts to die for, but both of our entrees were disappointing, considering the prices and glowing recommendations. One other small, nit-picky thing: we paid extra to have a private vehicle pick us up and drop us off at the Fiumicino train station (45 Euros each way versus 10 Euros for a taxi). We were picked up in a Mercedes but our trip back was in a minivan (we were told there were no sedans available), It would have been nicer to just get a cab. This wasn't really the fault of the Lord Byron hotel but the hotel called the company for us and it's a little thing to be aware of if you request this service.

The Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy is a little way from central Rome, but since we had previously done a big sightseeing trip of Rome this was perfect for us. The hotel is a short, easy walk to most of the museums in the Borghese gardens but a bit extra to the main Rome tourist sites. It's not difficult getting into central Rome with the hotel's complimentary shuttle (a 5 minute ride) which drops you off a block from Via Venetto or 3 to 4 blocks from the Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna). Be aware though, the last shuttle bus to the hotel leaves at 6:15pm. Taxis into Rome city center are not that expensive, we had dinner one night near the Piazza Navona and we paid about 10 Euros each way, including tip.

All in all the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy was a lovely experience and I would stay here again for a relaxing, romantic getaway.

-- Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy --

Stayed at the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy for a week during March 2006. The Brochure / internet site said All rooms have queen or twinbeds. Room 307 had a pretty small bed, much smaller than 6' bed I have at home. However, the room shares the largest balcony above the main entrance.

The complimentary shuttle bus service to Rome center was never mentioned or offered to us throughtout our stay, and the 15 minute walk to Rome centre is for people of Olympic stature. You start from the top of one hill, travel through two valley's and over two further hills, before descending into the north end of Rome city centre. Walking through Villa Borghese grounds though is not recommended after dusk. One evening it took us 50 minutes to walk the eastern perimeter of the Borghese Gardens to the Spanish Steps.

The internet site claims that you might have a Rome city view or Villa Borghese view. However, looking south west from the front door you view a solid wall of the Belgium Embassy. Looking south east you view an apartment block and looking north east you view beautiful old very expensive villas and then north west is another block of apartments. These are minor but important inaccuracies in their hotel literature that need correcting.

The look and feel of the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy is very good, but not excellent due to little things mentioned above. No matter was too small for the excellent staff, especially from Monday to Thursday. Also be aware that Italian businessmen at breakfast enjoy talk loudly on their mobile phones. Overall the Lord Byron Hotel Rome Italy should rate 5 stars, but I would give 3.5 stars due to the matters already mentioned.
