My final stop in Rome was at the Lord Byron hotel, on the north side of the city. To get there, I walked through the Villa Borghese garden with my luggage, which was a bit of a challenge. There are easier routes, but either way, it’s a little over a kilometer walk to the nearest metro station.
The hotel has a nice exterior and walking in definitely makes you feel you’re at a luxury hotel.
Once I met with the reception and checked in, I headed up to my suite. I received a fairly large room with a living room, bedroom, two TVs, a large closet and grand bathroom. I loved the bathroom’s white marble on almost all of the surfaces.
I did have a view of the residential area behind the hotel.
The hotel was nice although it does lack a fitness center, spa, club lounge or a way to make coffee in the rooms. I was pleased to find the extensive daily breakfast in their Sapori del Lord Byron restaurant the next morning. They had lots of local Italian dishes as well as your typical Western breakfast options. Another feature to point out, is the quality of the coffee, it will never disappoint!
My stay at the Lord Byron hotel was a short one. I did have a chance to eat a dinner at their Sapori del Lord Byron restaurant which you’ll be able to read about in a separate article. This is the type of hotel that offers a luxury atmosphere with the more local feeling. If you’re looking for a local experience but still with luxury amenities, I can recommend to you the Lord Byron hotel in Rome.
