About Relais de l'Opera

Housed in a renovated 19th century building, Relais de l'Opera is a boutique guest house offering sophisticated contemporary accommodation in the heart of Rome’s historic core

All the rooms have been carefully furnished and decorated to a high standard. They feature flat-screen TVs with Sky channels, free Wi-Fi, minibars, hairdryers and very welcome air conditioning.

Reception staff at Relais de l'Opera are available during limited hours and can offer basic concierge services, luggage storage and advise on tours. There is a lift in the building.

A comprehensive breakfast, including a range of hot items like bacon and eggs, is served every morning (fee applies). Restaurants in the neighbourhood serve a wide range of cuisines, from Italian to Chinese.

Guests wanting to make sure they return to the Eternal City should head to Trevi Fountain and throw in a coin but couples should go to the nearby Fountain of Lovers where legend has it that couples who drink its waters will remain faithful forever.

Positive Reviews

Good central location

The guest house is located in an area between Rome’s main Termini Station and the tourist sites near the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. Guests really felt this gave them the best of both worlds since they were close to practical transport amenities as well as the major attractions that had brought them to the city.

Very friendly staff

It was very rare to read a review that did not compliment the staff in some way. While they were often described as helpful and welcoming, what most seemed to impress guests was how friendly they were. It clearly helped to make guests feel at home.

Stylish and clean rooms

Guests were typically very happy with the rooms themselves, saying they were very stylish, well maintained in general and unfailingly clean.

Negative Reviews

Photos somewhat misleading

Guests were a little unhappy with the way the guest house represented itself online, saying that they implied that a grand looking building was the one where the guest house is based. Guests stated this was certainly not the case, and that it was actually in a fairly unattractive building that looked completely different.

Delicious varied breakfast

Guests were very pleased to be able to report that the breakfast served here was not simply a basic “pastry and hot drink” affair, but an extensive spread that included many popular hot items.

Some issues with water drainage

Although finding the rooms well maintained, guests complained that the water in their bathrooms didn't drain away fast enough. This was a particular problem when having a shower.
