Unique atmosphere but rooms dated

Aug 22nd, 2020

Great location, unique very peaceful atmosphere with a beautiful bar and restaurant - food is great and service very good. We had a junior suite which had a nice size but the rooms start being dated and renovation is required now in this hotel class. Very small gym. All employees were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the De Russie in July, about one month after the hotel had re-opened after the lockdown. Not many rooms seemed to be booked, so that the atmosphere was very quiet and special. The staff was genuinely friendly and attentive, and we just love the beautiful bar in the courtyard, where many locals had an aperitivo before heading to dinner. To our delight, we discovered that the hotel now has two "official" hotel cats - just a detail, but one that makes the hotel even more likeable. Many thanks to the friendly and motivated De Russie team for making our stay so very special. We will be happy to return next year. One general remark on the "Covid" situation: Many of our friends expressed their surprise when we told them we would travel to Rome this summer. But in our view, now is the perfect time - we have never seen the city so empty, and we have never enjoyed our visits to the Vatican Museums, the Forum, the Colosseum and the Galleria Borghese, just to name some of the top sights, so much. Everything is empty, there was not even a line at the entrance to the Vatican Museums, and in every restaurant, shop or bar, the service is great. Social distancing was strictly observed, and temperature scanners are used virtually everywhere - we felt safe during our entire stay (actually, safer than here in Germany). We would definitely travel to Rome - and stay at the De Russie - again if we had to decide again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Recently opened from COVID lockdown and refurbished we stayed her over a weekend. It was simply fantastic in every way. Whilst a grand and luxurious hotel It is also intimate and cosy. The staff are some of the most hospitable and professional of any hotel I have stayed at anywhere in the world. The terrace restaurant was excellent and the outdoor bar a lovely place to sit and while away an evening. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it also for dinner and drinks even if you are not a resident. Great location also. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Unique hotel

Jul 16th, 2020

I spent a night here with my girlfriend. I would go as far as saying that this is one of the best hotels in the world. First of all the position, between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza di Spagna, just a few steps from the most beauitful spots in Rome. Second of all the hotel, while being an historic one, (designed in the early XIX century), is incredibly well kept, which unfortunately is not common for historic hotels in Italy. The interiors and the rooms are beautiful and spacious, luxurious without being baroque, but fresh and luminous. The inside garden, le Jardin de Russie, is a perfect spot for having a drink or a breakfast. Unfortunately we couldn't try the Spa as it was closed do to the Covid. The service was very attentive, with a friendly touch that is very hard to find in other luxury hotels and that made this a unique experience. Looking forward to come back. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Very disappointing

Feb 27th, 2020

This hotel should be an absolute joy to stay in but sadly for me, it was not. Perfect position and a beautiful classic building with a gorgeous garden but it ends there. Starting at $1,000 AUD per night, this hotel is very expensive to stay and rather than receiving a warm welcome most staff are snobby and aloof. A stark contrast to other hotels I have stayed at in Italy where I always feel welcomed. Doormen feel more like beggars waiting for tips as you arrive and depart, shuffle you sideways in or out the door when VIP’s arrive at the hotel and never greeted me with a smile as I returned from a walk. Breakfast was so poor I preferred a coffee and pastry at the local cafe even though I had included breakfast. Toilet didn’t flush and was not repaired the entire day I was out even though I reported it broken in morning. I needed to leave the room when the repairmen come yet I could not sit in the lounge as VIPs were requiring it. The cleaning women on my floor however were absolutely lovely. The negative experiences led me to feel unwelcome and I believe this hotel may be perfect for those needing to impress others with where they book in Rome, but for a private guest like myself looking for a wonderful holiday experience, I would suggest choosing elsewhere.
