Hotel Lord Byron is a wonderful hotel in Rome. We had a four night stay there in March and thoroughly enjoyed our time.
Location - in the Parioli district, just north of the Borghese Gardens. You’re not in the thick of the hustle & bustle of the city, but we loved that about it. It’s a 15 min walk to the Spanish steps through the gardens, which in itself is beautiful. It was really easy to get a taxi for trips a bit further afield or when we were feeling lazy!
Room - we had a superior room overlooking the front courtyard of the hotel. The art deco style is evident throughout the hotel and maintained in the rooms - it was like being on a Gatsby set, we loved it. The bed was incredibly comfy and of a good size. The bathroom was marble throughout and felt very indulgent.
Breakfast - the breakfast was one of the best things about the hotel. It was of a continental style, with plenty of buffet options to choose from, but the kitchen would also make things like omelettes/eggs Benedict etc to order if you so wished. It was also a real treat to have silver cutlery and china crockery for every meal! The breakfast is taken downstairs in another sumptuous dining room - it’s on basement level but does not feel dark or dingy, like you sometimes experience in smaller hotels. The coffee was incredible too!
Service - the hotel staff are impeccably attentive. From our initial greeting to check out, all of the staff made us feel very welcome. They speak excellent English too!
