GUIDE “CHARMING SMALL HOTEL”
This stylish little hotel in a quiet, cobbled lane just north of Piazza Navona is a real discovery. The newly painted façade offers a foretaste of the neat interior where the spacious area leads into a series of comfortable public rooms. Marble floors gleam and provide a suitable setting for some lovely antiques while chairs and sofas are upholstered in red velvet or smart red and beige, a colour scheme which is continued throughout the house. There are some fine antique mirrors (including a huge one on each landing), old lamps and attractive prints, all of which are offset by cool, cream walks.
The bedrooms (each with its own brass doorknocker) are arranged on five floors and reached by an elegant marble staircase with fin de siècle iron banister (or there’s a lift). None of them are very large (one or two are, in fact, quite small), but all are pretty and comfortable. Bedheads valances, curtains and bedcovers are all in co-ordinated read and beige; attractive but never fussy. Some rooms have great views over rooftops and terraces, excellent for an inside glimpse of Roman domestic life. Four - including a single – have a terraces equipped with tables and chairs.
“TELEGRAPH “ ( 2008)
An excellent centro storico choice is the DUE TORRI, a charming traditional hotel on a quiet lane. The higher your room, the better; fourth floor rooms have balconies, fifth floor roms have terraces.
“THE MAIL ON SUNDAY “ (articolo di DAVID NOBBS)
My wife and I stayed in the small three-star HOTEL DUE TORRI, on the corner of two tiny old streets between the Tiber and the Piazza Navona. It was friendly and quiet, had lots of good umbrellas and served breakfast till 11.It has once been a home for bishops and cardinals. Our room had a view over a narrow cobbled lane to a roof garden festooned with washing. What more could one want?
A hidden gem situated at the western end of Via dei Condotti, with 26 rooms decorated in claret and yellow. The furniture is all antique and rooms at the top have magnificent views. The best feature however is the proprietor the glamorous, attentive Cinzia, who goes out of her way to ensure that guest enjoy both her hotel and her city.
“THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE”
Tucked in a lane between the Piazza Navona and the Tiber, the Hotel Due Torri has 26 small but air-conditioned rooms. Those on the top floor are smaller still, sacrificing square footage to enchanting terraces built for two – an attractive bargain. Given the central location, this well-tended hotel is surprisingly quiet-. If only one could raise one’s elbows in the shower.
“THE NEW YORK TIMES” (november 1998)
Around the corner from the monkey tower on the Via dei Portoghesi, this 26 room hotel provides a good buffet breakfast, plenty of help with reservations and directions, and plain airconditioned rooms with well-stocked mini-bars and large bathrooms (including hair-dryer). Near the Piazza Navona and the Tiber.
From Tripadvisor, some reviews from our kind guests:
- "The hotel was on a nice quiet street. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, especially the owner. The breakfast area was large and appealing, and the breakfast itself was excellent".
- "Near the Pantheon and not far from the Trevi Fountain and of course shopping in some of the high end Italian brand name stores. Lovely dining room and living room and staff very helpful with directions and all arrangements."
- "Everyone was exceptionally helpful and worked very hard to ensure our stay was delightful, which it was. They gave us suggestions for dinner each night and helped us with directions when we ventured out for the day. Truly a great experience!!!".
- "Our room (101) was comfortable & roomier than expected (especially the bathroom), clean and comfortable with a nice armoire for our things. We had a nice breeze at night and the unobtrusive chatter of the residents across the way was pleasant as I guess I was trying to bottle the sounds of our surroundings to take home as souvenirs".
- "It's a small, very central hotel, where we could easily reack major sights without too much walking. Just near Piazza Navona, Piazza de Spagna, Pantheon, Fontana de Trevi, Basillica de San Pietro, Trastevere and many other places within walking distance, this is very nice".
- "Hotel Due Torri is a wonderful gem, tucked into a small sidestreet. We had the family room, with a small separate room for the teen agers. Breakfast was very good too, and there are a number of excellent family restaurants steps away (that are affordable too). We have stayed in more expensive Rome hotels before, but they didn't offer anything more than Due Torri".
"Perfect location, warm hospitality and great beds"

This little gem has all the components needed for a great stay, at superb value.
As others have mentioned before me, one can not think of a better location, Hotel Due Torri is really at the centroid of all the major sites of Rome: Vatican, Pantheon, Colosseum, Piazza Navona, Spanish steps; they are all 5-20 minutes walking distance from the hotel. No need for any other transportation other than your feet. You just venture out the door and you are already there, at the heart of it and this is a huge logistical benefit.
No less important is the hotel's warm, accommodating and helpful staff. From the moment we walked into the hotel we received a warm, personable welcome. The staff was always helpful, made great expert suggestions and bookings (on sights, restaurants and or anything we asked). All their suggestions were spot on and we really got the feeling they wanted to ensure our successful stay not only at the hotel, but in Rome. We had a feeling of genuine care and a warm greeting each time we returned from an excursion. Hotel staff does not get better than this.
Finally, the hotel itself is extremely comfortable. The rooms and lobby are charming and I was surprised at the level of comfort in such an old neighborhood. The beds are top notch, great sleep quality. The room was charming and large by European standards. The hotel is very quiet, small, located on a small side street, with modern quiet, effective A/C. Breakfast was tasty, with a variety of choices.
We had a great stay, I will come back here again and warmly recommend this place.

"Perfect place to access all of Rome's sites"

My family and I just returned from a 5 day stay. We went with my brother's family and my Mom. My brother has stayed here on several occasions and always lauded the location and people who worked there. I/we weren't disappointed!
One of the nice things about the Due Torri is that it isn't located on one of Rome's bustling streets. It really is tucked away. That adds a little 'privacy' and quiet to its location. We rarely heard any outside noise at night or in the morning. Yet, when you exit the hotel and walk a short block or 2 in either direction, you're on your way to any of Rome's attractions that you want! Because of this, if you need to recharge your batteries, it is easy to get back, relax for an hour or so and then head back out without needing a cab. In fact, I'd say that other than possibly the Coliseum (which we walked back from), EVERYTHING is within a 20-25 minute walk.
The rooms had all that we needed. Nicely air conditioned, appointed and clean. Your room rate also comes with breakfast. There's an extremely abundant selection of pastries, cereals, juices, toast and coffees. The attendant will make made to order espresso drinks (cappuccinos, etc.). It was so bountiful, we were often good to go until dinner!
The staff is wonderful! There hasn't been a lot of turnover in the staff which is nice. As I mentioned, my brother has been there on several occasions and they welcomed him back like family! They happily helped with every request.
I think the Due Torri is one of the best overall values in Rome and would highly recommend you considering it for your next vacation to this beautiful city!

Good location. A great place from which to venture to and from your destinations in Rome. As others have mentioned, what is special about this place is the quiet - street noise is minimal here and the accommodations are comfortable. Staff is capable and helpful.
Room Tip: Choose the family room if you want a traditional single mattress queen bed.
"Ideal location, charming"
4 of 5 starsReviewed 17 July 2013
Lots of charm, wonderful location, good breakfast, very helpful and accommodating staff, and all for reasonable rates (for Rome, that is). The rooms were small on the top floor, but had a terrace that was a bonus. The location is truly ideal, as we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. I can definitely recommend this hotel, though next time I would ask for a bigger room than the rooms on the 7th floor.
Room Tip: Ask for a larger room.

The location of this hotel can't be beat. We stayed here a week and only once had to take a taxi - as we could walk everywhere because of this hotel's ideal central location. The staff was very friendly and information. If you're traveling with small kids, we can't recommend highly enough - we stayed in a small suite that had a very comfortable room for me and my wife, with a separate adjoining room with two small beds where our young children could sleep. The hotel is on a side street, so while it might be hard for a taxi to drop you directly at the door step, it makes for a very quiet stay - it's not on a thru-street.

"Will stay again in this small quaint friendly well located hotel."

Loved the room on the 5th floor with the balcony. Room had everything you need including a window in the bathroom and large shower. It was my husband's birthday and they gave him a gift!! The driver from the airport they set up was superb. As was the driver to our car rental. We arrived at 3 am and they were ready and waiting for us. Terrific location, close to Piazza Navona and lots of things to see and do and great restaurants.
Room Tip: get a room with a balcony
"Surprisingly comfortable large rooms walking distance from the heart of Rome."
5 of 5 starsReviewed 4 July 2013
Stayed here with my young son years ago. Remains one of my favorite places in my memory and would definitely stay again. Located close enough to most of the major sites and good restaurants that we walked most everywhere. My family came into town days later for a wedding. My grandfather was begging me to switch locations with him as he was not happy with the hotel he had booked near the Vatican which was much more expensive with tiny little rooms and coffin like elevators. The rooms here are spacious, comfortable, and a very good value. Thank you for a memorable stay.

"Nice little hotel in a good location"
5 of 5 starsReviewed 3 July 2013
We stayed here for 2 nights for a quick stopover in Rome. The hotel is near the Piazza Navona but a bit hard for the taxis to find (they may drop you off a block away). Within walking distance of many attractions. Staff is very friendly and helpful (they speak English) and will recommend excellent restaurants. Be sure to go to Ristorante la Campana which is right around the corner. Rooms are small. Very quiet. Excellent breakfast. Wifi in the lobby with a laptop available also
Room Tip: Some rooms have a small balcony which is quite nice for an aperitif or breakfast

We stayed 3 nights in mid-June. It is a great location. It was our first trip to Rome, and the staff was very helpful showing us on the map where things were and suggesting places to eat. Breakfast was good, plenty to chose from. The room was a little on the small side, but very charming. We would stay there again, and for sure suggest this hotel to others traveling to Rome.
