The hotel was perfect. The location was just right for walking around the historical areas of Rome. The rooms were clean and recently remodeled. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. My wife and I booked through Delta Vacations. Everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend Sina Bernini Bristol.
We booked a Signature Superior room (27 sq. m.) recently renovated, for two nights on October 2022. Room number, for reference, was 208. I always try to book recently renovated hotels because that is when a property will be at its best. The Sina Bernini Bristol has been fully renovated on its common areas, with an interesting combination / clash of modern art / style which can be a bit too much. If you are traveling to Rome looking for a classic setting, this might not be the place for you. The room was quite expensive because it was the weekend of the Rome Film Festival: 600 EUR per night. For this, we expected a 5 star experience. I have to say that the room renovation was nice but cosmetic on many aspects: there was no door on the wardrobe, just a curtain, which made it look cheap. There was just one robe in the bathroom, which was perhaps the weakest point of the room (and sadly, the one a guest notices the most, at least speaking for myself). The bathtub was pre-renovation and there were no supporting bars, so getting in and out was tricky. It was clear that the renovation was not in-depth and some finishing details (painting, etc) were not of the highest quality. I would say the renovation is more visible in the common areas than in the particular room we were in. The windows were very good sound-wise, in that they would keep Rome street noises out, except for the garbage truck which felt like a plane was landing, but to be fair that is part of any urban night experience and Rome is no exception. I would say the most disappointing thing outside of the bathroom was the breakfast area and buffet. It was set up in a very grand salon, but tables were too close to one another, and it felt like the last hours of a wedding. The breakfast buffet was poor in terms of quality: dry prosciutto, a very poor cheese selection, freshly cut fruit was scarce and eggs and bacon were just average. Almost no choice of jam which is such an easy thing to cover. A breakfast buffet with warm plates and a nice selection is quite an easy box to tick, but this one was lacking. Price was 35 EUR if not booked with the room, so I would recommend to have breakfast outside. Service was a bit chaotic and the personnel in charge of replenishing the buffet seemed just bothered to be there. There was one very busy and exhausted, but still helpful waiter, who took on the mission of keeping things together, bless him. I have recently stayed at a hotel in Frankfurt, where the breakfast buffet is much more satisfactory, and it is not a 5 star property. For the price and the luxury experience touted on their website, this was not worth the cost. Location-wise, this is a fantastic choice: near Piazza Spagna, but far enough not to have hordes of visitors beneath your windows at night, and an easy 10-15 minute walk to any tourist spot you want to visit. Also, a convenient light metro stop right in front. So, would I recommend it ? If room prices were around 300-400 EUR, I think it would be a better reflection of what the property has to offer. Location-wise, again, it is great. Best of luck to the hotel and hopefully they can take onboard some of these comments to improve on the breakfast buffet quality.
I have stayed in this hotel three times during my vacation on October 2022, my first stay was for four nights in a superior room and I have raised my below comments to the hotel as follows: Comparing the price of each night with the quality and the atmosphere of the room it doesn’t seem that this hotel is a 5 stars hotel! The wifi is terrible inhere! Also, and as I know, they should provide each room with complementary water everyday when they do the cleaning but for us we had to ask for that! which in my opinion is not acceptable as I have mentioned before we paid for a high price during our stay! At the end I will not repeat my stay here in this hotel nor recommend it to anyone I know! What really surprised me is the immediate action taken by the front office manager mr. Marco as he tried his best to solve the issues immediately, on top of that he complimented us with an upgrade during our second and third stay. Overall the location of this hotel is great and if you need to feel the sense of a 5 stars hotel you have to stay in a deluxe room type not a superior. One last thing a very special heartfelt thanks to the most genuine doorman I’ve ever met Mr. Marco (yes everyone there named Marco! I don’t know why) he was so polite and lovely and helped me with great recommendations for restaurants and coffeeshops he really was the highlight of our stay 💖
