Expert review of Albergo Del Senato

You get more than just a great location at this elegant centro storico three-star.

Views don’t come much more romantically Roman than this. From the front-facing windows of this historic centro storico hotel you look onto the weathered dome and huge granite columns of the Pantheon, and the bustling streetlife of the café-lined piazza that fronts it. Inside, the décor is reassuringly classic, but with an attention to detail that really impresses. It would be easy to rest on one’s laurels in a setting like this, but the Del Senato makes that extra effort with its professional multilingual reception staff, generous breakfast buffet and free WiFi. And I love the flower-decked rooftop terrace: it feels like you could reach across and touch the Pantheon from here.

Location: 

In the picturesque heart of Rome, the Del Senato stands just to the side of Rome’s most intact ancient temple, the Pantheon, overlooking a pretty square lined with pavement cafés.

Bedrooms: 

The 57 pristine rooms are elegantly old-fashioned with their polished parquet floors, silk brocade wall-coverings and antique writing desks. For the best views, book a superior double – or splash out on one of the top-floor Penthouse Suites, each of which has a small terrace overlooking the piazza.

Public areas: 

Suffused with antique grace, the Del Senato’s lounge, bar and breakfast room feel like something out of Room With a View: perfect letter-writing or (if you must) postcard-writing venues for present-day Grand Tourists.

Eating and drinking: 

A filling buffet breakfast is served in the elegant downstairs breakfast room. In summer, guests can order drinks on the roof terrace – one of the best in Rome, and believe me, I’ve seen plenty.

Service: 

Friendly and helpful even at the busiest times.
