“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

I don't have one bad thing to say about this hotel. The price was great considering the location (walking distance to Colosseum, Forum, Palatine Hill), and the service was outstanding. The staff helped us arrange transportation and made dinner reservations for us every night. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. We had two couples in our 30s traveling and we stayed in two different hotels in Rome within two weeks. The other hotel (Hotel Memphis) was more expensive and more modern, but we agreed that Hotel Lancelot was the better stay. I would definitely stay here again and recommend the hotel to anybody.

We returned a few days ago from a trip to Rome and Sicily and we stayed at Hotel Lancelot for our Rome visit. We could not have picked a better place to stay.

The hotel is comfortable, very clean and conveniently located. It is a good 5-10 minute walk to the Metro station, but the metro system in Rome is limited to where it can take you. Buses are better suited to getting you to where you really need to go and this is close to many of the stops.

The staff is gracious, knowledgeable and very helpful. And they all speak English which is a big help when you are trying to get important information.

The breakfasts are terrific and there is a cozy lounge to relax in during the evening (with bar) as well as comfortable sitting areas.

They offer a fixed prix dinner (a bargain by Rome standards) which we did not try, but heard very nice comments.

We would not hesitate to return to Hotel Lancelot or recommend to friends

This hotel is exactly what I imagined when I booked it for one night (wish I could have afforded to stay here for all four nights in Rome): simple, classic architecture; great view from a small terrace on the third floor; friendly family owners; cozy bar/library area on the first floor; beautiful furnishings; and only four blocks from the Colosseum on a quiet street. If it's in your budget, I highly recommend this hotel.

Really a good value for an in-city, centrally located boutique hotel in Rome. The location is excellent and close to so much.......the Colosseum, the Palatine, Trastevere, the Vatican, etc.
Friendly, helpful staff, bountiful breakfast and the hotel itself is European stylish. Not inexpensive, but easily worth it due to the location, breakfast inclusion and the service and staff.

Our only complaint was that we had two double beds (had requested a queen). Overall, we would recommend this hotel to any of our friends and acquaintances looking to visit Rome.

Room Tip: Rooms facing west are quieter.

This hotel really is just a stones throw from the Colosseum. The location is fantastic and the hotel staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had a nearly 8 month old baby with us for our long weekend and Rome and this hotel was perfect for us. The rooms have a bath, although we ended up showering with our baby. Lancelot provide a travel cot all made up and go out of their way to be of assistance.
The rooms are nice, basic but cleaned every day and comfortable. The air con is only on for the summer months which was a shame as we were there in October and it was still very hot for us coming from Ireland :) But with the window open it was fine.
There are loads of great trattorias close to the hotel and the breakfast is a good selection, there is a highchair for babies as well.
Cost was around €600 for 3 nights stay, expensive enough but for the location we thought it was good value. Would recommend to all.

Room Tip: You can get a room with a balcony, which would have been nice in the warm evenings - we didn't h...

The location is perfect close to the Collosseum and to the other attractions of Rome. The room was clean and functional with a great view. Also the restaurant was very nice with good service. The staff very helpful speaks a good English and the wifi service is excellent. I think this is one of the best place to stay in Rome.

My wife and stayed at Hotel Lancelot for 5 days in October. We love the hotel and of course Rome, and we will be back.

The hotel staff are friendly, helpful and completely fluent in English. The location is perfect and is among the closest hotels to the Roman Forum and Colosseum.

The self served breakfast served at the hotel was great. A good selection of meat including smoked salmon and various cured meats. Also some fantastic jams including an incredible Orange marmalade (best I've ever had) and some of the freshest nuts I've ever had. There was a wide array of cereals, breads, and croissants. The fresh squeezed apple juice from green apples was unique and very good.

Now, this is not a cheap place to stay. We paid 195 Euros per night. I think it's worth the money though given the typical high costs for hotels in this area. Being so close to all the sights and being able to walk everywhere justifies some the added expense. There are cheaper places, but you would need to either take a bus or taxi to get to where you really want to be in Rome. If you can afford it, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Be sure to visit the terrace on the 6th floor. Its a great spot to drink some wine in the early evening.
