About Hotel King

Located in the tourist heart of the city, close to Piazza Barberini, Hotel King is an established three-star property offering comfortable accommodation and a lovely covered terrace.

The 72 rooms have a classic hotel feel to them and feature satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, personal safes, luxury bedding, and air conditioning to keep everything nice and cool.

The rooftop solarium is the star feature, but some guests may prefer to curl up with a good book in the reading room. Reception staff can offer basic concierge services.

Rates include a continental breakfast and the onsite bar serves a mean cocktail, but there are plenty more places to drink and eat in the neighbourhood. The nearby Gregory’s Jazz Club is a great spot for soulful tunes and good whiskey.

The Spanish Steps are just 500 metres from Hotel King. Dan Brown fans, and all those interested in its incredible collections, shouldn’t miss a trip to the Vatican Museums, two miles to the west.

Positive Reviews

Walk to attractions

While this hotel is not within walking distance of literally everywhere, guests did say that it was so central that they could walk to almost all the sights they had on their “to-see” list. Often mentioned, were the famous Spanish Steps, which are just a couple of minutes’ walk away.

Friendly and helpful staff

Guests generally had only good things to say about the hotel’s staff, describing them as friendly and only too willing to help if approached with a query or concern.

Rooms were clean

Guests reported that their rooms were adequately cleaned before being released for check-in and that the housekeeping staff did a good job of keeping everything neat, tidy and clean for the duration of their stay.

Negative Reviews

Photos are misleading

A very common theme in the reviews was that guests felt they were misled by the marketing photos on the Internet. They reported that their room was nothing like in the pictures, with the main issue being that, although clean, their room seemed poorly maintained and a lot shabbier in appearance.

Problems with the in-room safes

Guests were unhappy with what was available to keep their valuables safe. For a start, they reported that the hotel wanted more money to allow them to use the in-room safe, something they found unacceptable. Secondly, the safes themselves were said to be flimsy and didn't inspire confidence that their valuables would, in fact, be safe.

Bars may be closed

The hotel advertises that it has two bars on-site. Guests, even those travelling in high season, reported that these would often be closed, with no way for them to order a drink and enjoy it in a social setting.
