Had great 3 night stay. Hotel is 15 min walk from train & bus station & close to colosseum & other sights. Very friendly & helpful staff. Single room was compact but had everything I needed. Comprehensive buffet breakfast was included. Would stay again.
We wanted a base that was near to the sights, and we were so lucky to have found this hotel. Only 10 minutes walk from the Colosseum (maybe a bit less depending on your speed and the heat!) and with lot's of eating places nearby on Via Urbana for the evening, we don't think we could have found a better hotel for the money. We were kindly allowed to check in early by Cristiana who was utterly charming and we made our way to our room via the lift. OK, they aren't the biggest rooms,but we didn't intend to be in the room that long. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean and the bed linen was good quality. Considering breakfast is included in the price, the choice was excellent, and you can order freshly cooked scrambled eggs, and a variety of coffees if you so wish. All the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble, you really were made to feel very welcome. When we go back to Rome(which we will do very soon!) we won't even look elsewhere for a hotel, we will book the Hotel Ivanhoe without hesitation.

The Ivanhoe hotel enjoys an excellent position in the centre of Rome, in the Monti district - one of the most …More
My husband and I have just returned from at lovely 4 night stay at the Eurostar International Palace. We went for a 1st wedding anniversary and it was a perfect base. It is very central and you are within walking distance of the Colisseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the Termini and Republicca train stations. We opted for an economy room and it was a little on the small size, but as to be expected with a cheaper room. Our window view was the other side of the building, however, this meant it was quiet with no traffic from the busy Via Naczionale. Hotel staff were lovely and offered advise on where to go and where to eat. The entrance has beautiful paintings to welcome you in. At least 4 lifts so getting to our room was quick. The bathroom was spacious with walk in shower and toiletries provided. Cleaner came everyday to make the bed and provide fresh towels.
The hotel has a restaurant and bar but we never used this as there are so many other places to eat nearby.
Overall a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
Nice hotel, well positioned and fantastic staff. I am a regular traveller and stay in many, many hotels world-wide. They are usually Hiltons, Marriott's, Westins etc., so you understand the quality of hotel I am used to. They really couldn't do enough for us at Rome Life and I thoroughly recommend this hotel for your Rome experience. The rooms were comfortable and spacious for a central based City hotel and the facilities were great. It is modern, so if you are expecting the old world experience forget it, however, for a good base this ticks all the boxes.
Just minutes away from the colosseum with real Roman charm ... we stayed in a loft apartment 5 mins walk away. It was a shame that we only spent one night yet it felt like we had been in Rome for many days. The apartment was far better than expected and had all amenities (although pen and paper would have been great, along with visiting suggestions, especially as not at the hotel itself). The area around the hotel was buzzing with places to eat and drink and not at all touristy - a bonus if you have spent the day following the crowds around the city.
Will definitely recommend and certainly return.
Cannot complain about anything. This was the 2nd hotel we stayed at in Rome on this trip and the last on the entire holiday & was the better of the 2 in Rome. The rooms were so clean & cozy, even though small, & the reception staff very obliging. It gets even better at breakfast with such a good selection & great coffee. Would probably look for this hotel again if I returned to Rome as we also enjoy staying in historic areas & good selection of restaurants nearby. The hotel offered to help book a taxi back to the airport but that was not necessary as a further benefit was the Metro station was close enough for us to pull our suitcases to & pick up a train all the way to FCO Airport (changeover to the Leonardo Express at Termini).
Grand Hotel Palatino is located within walking distance of almost everything. My wife and I are 76 years old and we were able to walk from the hotel to every site in which we were interested with the exception of St. Peter's and the Pantheon to which we took a bus (I do not recommend the open tour because it does not stop near enough to the sites and walking to them consumes too much time, but that is another story).
