One of the best locations for a Hotel is to be close to the City Centre, but still not in a busy nor noisy area, and it should be easily accessible. nh Collection Hotel Cinquecento Rome combines all this, to an affordable rate. Once I arrived at Roma Termini Train Station, from Naples/Napoli, I did not have to look for a Taxi or use the Metro with all my luggage. No, I only had to walk a few metres to the main entrance of my Hotel, NH Collection Roma Palazzo Cinquecento. You know, location is everything!
The building of the 5 Star Hotel nh Collection Cinquecento Rome is an institution with a long history. Built in the 15th century the Roman Palazzo once housed the offices of the Italian railway company, Ferrovie dello Stato, before it became a Hotel. What amazes me, but also makes me jealous a bit, is that there used to be an underground path that connected the Hotel with Roma Termini Train Station. How it would be amazing if this one still existed! Just some Years ago, in 2015, they discovered ancient remains of the Mura Serviane/ Servian Wall dating back to the 4th century BC in the Garden of the Hotel. The Location of this Luxury Hotel is definitely precious.
No matter how hectic or hot your Day in Rome might have been, once you step into the Lobby Area with all the neutral and sleek colours and interior pieces, also thanks to the air conditioning, you feel calmer and immediately a bit more relaxed. Check-In went super fast, you should consider a membership of the nh Hotel Group Reward Program if you’re planning on staying in other Hotels of the nh Group anytime soon. Read here more about the advantages and how to join. But also without the staff will treat you super nicely and their English is just perfect! If you arrive early, or just want/need to deposit your luggage prior moving into your Room, you can just leave your luggage at the reception desk and they will take care of it until you arrive back. That’s also what I did, to enjoy beautiful and sunny Rome.
From my personal room, I could not only watch the sunset, with its deep orange sun disappearing between buildings and trees, but also watch the bustle of Piazza dei Cinquecento. The forecourt of Termini train station not only connects the traveller with the station and the city, it also serves as an access to the metro and the departure point for the “Hop On Hop Off” buses. Thanks to the soundproofed windows I have rarely heard anything from outside, but if necessary they can open a gap only. In addition to a large queen bed, the equipment of my “premium room” included a work desk with coffee machine and water cooker for free use during the stay, two armchairs, a minibar and air conditioning as well as a TV with Sky TV. In the bathroom bathrobe and slippers were waiting, as well as NH collection care products and of course a shower and also a bidet. Wireless internet is available free of charge throughout the building, and access is identical for all guests. The 22 m² room offered enough space to spread out and relax. The fitness studio can be used free of charge and for a more beautiful view, there is a roof terrace.
A restaurant in the hotel offers local and international specialities almost round the clock. The breakfast is offered in the morning as a buffet, with a rich selection of desserts/pastries as usual for Italy (luckily it’s an all-you-can-eat buffet, you just have to try all the different croissants!), but also egg dishes on request or fruit/yoghurt/cheese and sausage. If the weather is warm, you can enjoy the first meal of the day on the terrace, right next to the remains of the Servian Wall. Or later lunch or dinner. I already wrote about my dinner in the hotel restaurant of the nh Collection “Palazzo Cinquecento” in Rome. Half-board includes breakfast and lunch or dinner.
I absolutely enjoyed my stay at “Palazzo Cinquecento” by NH Collection Hotels in Rome. The location is very convenient, the staff was so friendly and everything was luxurious but discreet. I can absolutely recommend the 5 Star Hotel!
