“Best hotel in Roma”
Reviewed 12 April 2010

There isnt one thing we did NOT like about the Lancelot. The location, the hotel, the staff was outstanding. We actually cancelled our reservations on the other side of town to stay here again during our stay. If we ever get back to rome, we will be staying here.

This hotel is wonderful. It is beautifully decorated and furnished, impeccably clean and at the same time, feels very homely. The atmosphere is very welcoming, thanks to the wonderful owners and staff, who make sure that guests feel comfortable. The owners Mrs Khan and her daugther and two sons are very friendly and make it a priority to meet and greet as many guests as possible. Food is great too. Location: 2 minutes walk to the Colosseum (by the way, you can see the Colosseum from some of the rooms too!)

Hotel Lancelot was our perfect base for a week in Rome. The location is unbeatable : you can see the Colosseum and Nero’s Golden House from the hotel, magic St Clemente is literally around the corner, Trastavere and the Forum are easy walking distance – and local bus stops whisk you direct to the Vatican, St John Lateran and the rest of this extraordinary city.

Our rooms were great, with plenty of space and full facilities, and a very comfortable bed. The hotel has loads of space in stylish lounge and bar, all with antiques and a gentle whisper of classical music. The dining room’s round tables are shared with other guests, who added to the magic of our stay by providing interesting and erudite company. Breakfast is to a high continental standard, and the optional dinners provide a relief from sightseeing and memorable companionship : we opted to dine in every second night of our 6-night stay, a sensible pace. The bar supplied us with good tea, fine wine, Scrabble and books, and the rest – plus a shaded outside terrace. And the whole place is spotless, well-maintained and clearly loved.

But what really made Hotel Lancelot was the management and staff. Constantly helpful, great at organising and valuable advice (they got me by public transport to ipod Respighi on the Appian Way at dawn - a splendid experience), outstanding at going that extra mile with service – and interesting, too. You don’t often get the chance to talk Ethiopian history with a highly-educated barman from that extraordinary country, or discuss the politics of the Indian sub-continent with one of the owners, Mr Khan. And when we came to leave on Maundy Thursday, they arranged a Mercedes limo to Fiumicino at standard taxi prices

Thank you, Mr and Mrs Khan and your team. You made a good week in Rome into something special. TripAdvisor found you for us. Here’s hoping TripAdvisor brings you plenty more guests who appreciate one of the finest small hotels in Europe.

What a delightful, freindly and hospitable place! It is run by a dedicated family with flare and imagination. It is like staying at home away from home, the best compliment one can give a place. Thankyou Mrs Helen Khan a real credit to you and your family. On top of this it has location, location location! The Hotel Lancelot is in a quiet secluded street, Via Capo D' Africa, 5 minute walk to the Colleseum

I hesitate to write this review because I feel I'm letting too many people in on a wonderful secret. We visited this charming, well-situated hotel for a quick weekend in February. The Hotel Lancelot sits in a lovely neighborhood so is very quiet, but you are basically next door to the sites of Ancient Rome. The hotel rooms are spacious by any european standard and ours benefitted from the most magnificent views - not usual for a hotel in the centre of town. The bathrooms were well-equipped, pristine and more than comfortable. The staff, however, is what makes this hotel extra-special. They make you feel so extremely welcome. There is no question that we have (finally) found our Rome hotel.

perfect location in a neighborhood near colesium. Very helpful staff. Their largest room accomodated my family of four, not a luxurious room, but fine for the four of us.
