Reviewed 13 September 2010

I treated to my boyfriend to a trip to rome for his 30th and used trip advisor to select our hotel. I am glad we chose this hotel, it was centrally located whikst being down a quiet street. It was literally a stones throw away from the colessuem. The rooms where basic and grand at the same time and the matress was wonderfully firm. The hotel staff bought us a birthday bottle of proscetto which shows how this hotel goes for the personal touch. defo go there again

Staff was one of the highlights - very accommodating and their command of English helped ease us into our first couple of days in Italy. Reasonably close to Metro and major bus stops and a short walk from the Coliseum, although everything wihtin ancient Rome we found was an easy walk. Rooms were clean, tidy and comfortable. When we returned to Rome a day early we opted to stay at the Lancelot again. It was a great first experience for Rome and Italy.

The location of this hotel allows you to walk to the Collosseum and access the metro. In addition there are several small restaurants in the area. A small, delightful hotel tucked away on a small street. Excellent service during the booking on-line - friendly, helpful and responded very quickly. The breakfast included in cost of room was fine - basic, good options and convenient. We took a cab from the airport - arranged by the hotel for 50 Euro. Excellent service throughout our stay.

We read reviews and chose the Hotel Lancelot and I am so happy that we did! We were 2 families traveling together and we began our journey in Rome. Our kids were so happy to see each other that they were loud into the early hours and may have disturbed guests (which we apologized to the LAncelot staff for)! We loved the staff, rooms were clean, food was good, we were in a safe environment. Next time we visit, we will be quieter! Thanks to the Hotel LAncelot staff for patience w/us.

Hotel Lancelot, the wonderful Mrs. Khan, and her excellent staff come highly recommended from this Mom. We had a wonderful room with an enormous balcony just two blocks from the Colosseum. We needed a babysitter last minute and the hotel not only helped us with one, but provided service above & beyond what we could have hoped for. Everyone in the hotel knew my baby's name. The hotel was a true delight on every level - amazing friendly service, excellent location, great food, pleasant atmosphere. And we had an incredibly large balcony which was just heaven!

This hotel was great! The location was excellent, within a five minute walk to the Colosseum and the metro station! The staff was very helpful and accommodating to our needs, they had no problem recommending restaurants and calling to make reservations. They helped us out in getting our clothes dry-cleaned, they were able to get an express job done for us over the weekend so that we would have them back on the day of our departure.

The rooms were a nice size for being in the middle of Rome, and to the hotel's credit they had a properly functioning AC unit (very helpful in the middle of a heatwave!).

The dinners were a good value and the round table service was a fun way to meet new people. I feel that the breakfasts had left a little to be desired, the fruit was not very fresh, the selection food was limited. It was really the only issue I had with the hotel.

Hotel Lancelot was a great value and wonderful place to stay in the middle of Rome!

We stayed at the Lancelot after reading several positive reviews. The hotel staff are very helpful & courteous. Our triple room with corner terrace was nice but simply decorated, very quiet, comfortable, clean & had a lot of natural light from the large windows. The bathroom was small but functioned well. They had a universal plug which was nice for charging camera batteries, etc... We enjoyed the common areas & small library as well. The breakfast assortment and morning room was a perfect way to start our day. The hotel is very close to the Colosseum, cafes and markets. We bought a 2 day pass for the hop on/hop off bus to get to the other major sites easliy. We loved Rome's drinking fountains that we used to refill our water bottles.
