We recently spent three nights at the Lancelot with our two young adult kids. We squished into their family sized room -- one large bed and two twins. We arrived early from the train from Florence and the hotel was very gracious about having our room ready for us, which we really appreciated. In an expensive city like Rome, it was nice to have the option of staying all together. The room had good wi-fi and a lovely little terrace facing the colluseum.
I loved the vibe of the lobby, lounging areas, bar and dining room -- very gracious, comfortable and inviting without being stuffy. The staff was extremely gracious and friendly, and the breakfast was delicious -- wide array of choices. The location tucked away by the colloseum worked well for us -- Rome is of course huge and sprawling, so check out a map and consider the location when you plan your own trip.
Only criticism I would mention is the bedding: the second "twin" bed in this room is really two small for a teen -- it's more of a child's cot -- a true twin would be better and our daughter (who is not tall!!!) felt pretty squished. The pillows at the hotel were oddly lumpy and hard -- a simple fix I think travelers would appreciate. Hooks in the bathroom would be a great addition, especially when you have 4 people sharing this room. We left for the airport early on Easter Sunday as Italy changed clocks for daylight's savings time. The gentleman at the front desk Easter morning apparently forgot our wake up call, but we used an i-pad as a backup so all worked out okay -- can't really fault hotel as I think between the holiday and time change there was understandable confusion. We would definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family!

Room Tip: There is one very small elevator and this is a tall building. If you don't mind stairs, you will be able to skip the elevator if you are in a rush, but choose your floor accordingly.

We arrived in Rome at about 7:30 a.m. after a long international flight. My bedraggled family of five was tired and hungry. We were graciously greeted, our luggage was swiftly stowed and we were welcomed into the breakfast room for the most generous breakfast of our entire stay in Italy. We continued to receive this same gracious service for our three day stay.

Our rooms were immaculate and comfortable and the staff was exceptionally accommodating~offering to make reservations, help us book day trips, etc. Breakfast is generous indeed, even our teenage son was satisfied after the plentiful spread!

We traveled with three older teens and the breakfast offered was a great savings.

The location is excellent if you're interested in the historic sights and we were able to catch the bus easily for sights farther away.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it really is superb.

Room Tip: Our kids had a courtyard room that was quieter than our street view room, but we felt our room was sunnier. Both rooms were quite nice.

We stayed at the Hotel Lancelot for two nights. The hotel is located on a one way street in a quiet neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We could not have been treated any better by the fantastic staff. Arriving in the morning after a long, tiring flight, we were offered their buffet breakfast while they checked to see if our room was ready. After a delicious breakfast, we (three adults) were immediately shown to our room which was a large, comfortable, corner room with a wrap around balcony. The balcony had a small table and two chairs. After a long day of sightseeing, we relaxed on the balcony and observed life in this residual neighborhood: people walking their dogs, kids going to school, etc, We felt very safe in this neighborhood which had a variety of restaurants, shops, ATMs,and the Colosseum a couple of blocks away. There is also a small terrace on the 6th floor that anyone can use and view the Colosseum and St. Peter's dome which are especially beautiful at night.
Every morning there is a plentiful breakfast buffet with a wide variety of items to eat and drink. Each evening a 3 course meal is served with red and white wine. The dinner menu is posted in the morning and you just need to tell them that you are dining with them that evening. We ate at the hotel the first evening and it was so delicious and reasonably priced (25 euros) that we decided to dine there again the second evening. We also enjoyed eating at the round tables and meeting other travelers with who we shared our adventures. The second evening Mr. Khan joined our table and we thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Italy.
The most impressive part of our stay at this hotel was the outstanding, helpful, friendly staff. You truly felt welcomed. Every staff member spoke English and was always polite, attentive, and cheerful. They helped us call cabs, recommended sites to visit and how to get there, and gave directions to banks, restaurants, and shops. If you don't speak the language, it is really important to have a wonderful, friendly staff such as this one to help you. I can't praise them highly enough! We loved the Hotel Lancelot and will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Request a corner room with a balcony or a room on the 6th floor with a terrace.

Spent 5 nights here in the past week as a group of friends. Owner and staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Bathrooms are compact and the shower would be a problem for very large persons.
Breakfast is hearty as described in the hotel literature and we enjoyed 2 dinners at the hotel which comprised good food with complementary wine and good company.
Hotel is in a good location 5 to 10 minutes walk from the Colosseum. Don't miss the church of S. Clemente which a 5 minutes away. This is a beautiful medieval church with the remains of a 4th century church below and a pre-Christian temple and Roman house below that.
Would definitely stay here again.

I've just stayed at this hotel on a business trip, I couldn't fault it in any way - at the end of the road is the colosseum and nearby are some lovely restaurants which are very reasonable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were very clean and had everything we needed! There is a nice area to relax too with sofas, and good choice at breakfast :) I would love to return to Rome and would definitely stay at this hotel again :)
