In the centre of Rome, only 200 meters from the Teatro dell'Opera opera house
and the Repubblica metro station, an elegant nineteenth century building
houses The Britannia Hotel, a refined boutique hotel with a particularly
British atmosphere. The elegant Art Nouveau architecture of this building
commissioned by Prince Don Filippo Orsini in 1865 is combined with
sophisticated and charming spaces that set the scene for a warm welcome with
a very professional attitude.
The careful attention to detail and the exclusive atmosphere of the rooms furnished in genuinely British style combine to create the intimate and classy environment of The Britannia Hotel. The prime location in the heart of the Eternal City is complimented by the privacy of the 33 comfortable and welcoming rooms, some of them also enhanced by a discreet terrace filled with plants and attractive greenery. All of the rooms, which include the exclusive Open Suite, have comfortable beds with large mattresses, to ensure that guests will enjoy the rest and relaxation they deserve after a busy day's sightseeing in Rome.
These intimate and elegant chambers are equipped with top quality linen, private bathrooms with spacious showers or baths, satellite TV with LCD screens, a free high-speed Wi-Fi internet connection, a safe, an ironing board and a UV sun lamp. A kettle for making hot drinks is available, with a selection of tea and coffee, and we also offer guests a selection of free items in the mini-bar upon arrival.
