“Great location close to almost everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

I have used Trip Advisor several times when travelling to Europe and all times have not been disappointed in the results. My first trip to Italy was not an exception. The reviews of the River Palace were dead on accurate. I looked for a good location as my wife and I were planning to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The River Palace is located within a short 2 minute walk to one of the oldest churches in Rome - Piazza del Popolo, in one of Rome's most vibrant piazzas.
Just off of the Piazza del Popolo is Villa Boghese a large landscape garden in the naturalistic English manner in Rome, containing a number of buildings, museums (see Galleria Borghese) and attractions. It is the second largest public park in Rome.
Also close are the Spanish Steps and believe it or not - The Vatican! Well it was a good walk but what the heck - my wife and I like the exercise. The hotel staff was very helpful in advice for the tours we desired most - The Coliseum, St. Peter's Basilica and St. Peter's Tomb. Our room was a bit small but luxurious!
I would go back to the River Palace in a heartbeat!

The River Palace is a lovely hotel. It's in a great location close to bars, restaurants and transport links but also within easy walking distance of the main attractions. The staff are very friendly and the hotel has a relaxed informal feel about it, whilst at the same time offering very high standards of service. The bedrooms and communal areas are well maintained and immaculately clean. If I had one minor criticism is has to be the size of our room, although I think we were a bit unlucky as other rooms on the same floor appeared to be bigger. We had a deluxe room but it was still fairly small and had a rather quirky layout with stairs down to the bathroom. It was very well equipped though and had a large comfy bed and lots of little extras. As other reviewers have said 'happy hour' is a perfect start to the evening and not to be missed. Breakfast choice is also very good and the buffet is constantly replenished. Overall the River Palace was a great choice in one of our favourite cities and we will definitely be back for another visit.

Hotel River Palace ++++

+Great location, 1min to Via Del Corso, where Piazza Del Popolo is.
+Nice and clean room.
+Air condition, personal lock case, fridgerator, tv.
+2 toilets, maybe one is for the kids.
+Breakfast.

-Small room and bathroom, but clean.

+/- We stayed at the top floor (8th) so we didnt heard any sound from the street, but its barely any traffic outside the hotel.
The elevator take you to the first floor and the rest you have to take another elevator to take you up.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the River Palace, and am so glad I did. The reviews I had read previous to me booking, were dead on. The only negative at all, was the size of the standard rooms. We were upgraded so the room we had was above average size for Rome standards.
They're very tiny, but lovely. Then again, how much time do you spend in your room while in Rome??
I can't say enough about the staff and the service we received - it was exceptional. Besides being on a cruise ship, there aren't that many hotels I've been to in the past the offered the same service. The hotel rooms are relatively small (as are most in Rome), but very lovely, with a very cozy decor. It's not cheap, but hotels which are dumps, sell for very little less.
The breakfast was called continental but this was the best by far I have ever had. Good variety and great service again.
The location of the hotel is perfect!!! You step out of the front door, hang a right and just walk. You're in the main area of Rome, all the shopping is right there and you can reach the Spanish Steps. Great to just hang out. The variety of the restaurants nearby is great. Will definitely go back here in the future. Also, you're a 2 minute walk to the underground metro....sooo easy to use and will take you anywhere...we were at the Vatican in less than 20 minutes, including a short walk.
