Reviewed 11 March 2014

Stayed for 4 nights in mid February. My party occupied 2 rooms at opposite ends of the same floor. Wifi was not working in both rooms despite repeated reports to the front desk. Wifi could only be accessed from the hotel lobby or rooftop restaurant. Except for one concierge staff, the rest of the front desk staff were indifferent and impersonal. The hotel ambience was old world Europe though it felt like the drapes and upholstery could use some vacuuming due to a moldy smell. Good location.

The hotel is well located within walking distance of all the major attractions of Rome. The service is okay and rooms are alright. The terrace restaurant has a beautiful view overlooking the ancient Roman Forum (and hence the hotel's name). The room which I had overlooking the street was quite small and extremely susceptible to the street noises. I was woken up by a street brawl at 2 am and found it difficult to sleep thereafter. Based on the size of my room, I do not recommend the hotel for families.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on higher floors and with room numbers X15 and above on each floor. It seems those ar...

Dear Sir,
We thank you for your comment. The hotel is situated in the very heart of Rome and the noises of a big city is inevitable. We have double glasses that are usually very effective but to avoid any kind of noise we can give internal rooms if the guest requires.
We inform that we do have family rooms that are 2 connecting rooms adapted to families.

We stayed here for 1 night only on our way home after a visit through Italy. It was a really wonderful hotel with tons of charm and a beautiful rooftop restaurant which is covered and heated in the winter. The views from the restaurant are unbelievable, overlooking the forum ruins. It is a 5 minute walk to the colliseum and a million fabulous restaurants so it was a perfect place to stay. The breakfast buffet was really good...the only one during our tour through Italy with bacon and scambled eggs!! We were given welcome drinks of prosecco our first night and our room was fantastic. We had a two room, 2 bathroom suite so we could let the kids have their own space and own tv. I only wish we could have stayed longer....we didn't have time to visit the gorgeous little bar on the first first floor that looked like it was straight out of a movie. Next time we will stay longer....and it is likely we could walk and see most things in Rome from this great spot!! Highly recommend!!!

Room Tip: If you need extra space, ask for rooms 218/219 which adjoin behind a single door and are connected b...

The hotel is comfortable and could not be located in a better place for most of the attractions in Rome. We booked a Superior Double and we were a little surprised at the size as it was a bit on the small side but as you don't spend much time in it we didn't mind too much. Bed was comfortable, over bath shower was ok, room was too hot so we turned off the heating.

The staff are excellent and could not do enough for you.

Be aware that they advertise parking but there is a charge!

Room Tip: Superior double was smaller than expected so I would go up a standard if you need room.

Dear Sir,
We are happy to read that you enjoyed the Hotel Forum.
Regarding the rooms, the hotel is a building of the 18th century and it was a convent and all the rooms have different size.
Our staff is always happy to help the guests for any request.
Hope to see you back!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Forum. Approximately a 30 minute taxi ride from the Airport located at the Roman Forum. The welcome from the reception staff was very friendly and we were escorted to our superior room on the 4th floor. Our room view overlooked the Roman Forum so we were very pleased with our room. All the main attractions are within walking distance, Colosseum is a 5-10 minute walk away, Pantheon a 15 minute walk, Trevi Fountain a 20 minute walk and the Spanish Steps approx 30 minutes. We even walked to the Vatican but we think we took the scenic look!!! Breakfast is on the rooftop restaurant with an excellent view over Rome. The choice of food was good with hot scrambled egg, bacon, cheese, cold meat, yoghurts, fresh fruit, cakes etc....The restaurant staff were always very friendly and helpful. Overall an excellent stay at this 4 star hotel and would recommend it to anyone who fancies a break in Rome.

I booked this hotel for a group of 7 couples, one of which was in a wheelchair, and we were all very happy with our stay at the Hotel Forum. The front desk took very good care of us, and gave us upgraded rooms where possible. It was lovely waking up to the view of the forum in the morning. I would highly recommend this hotel. Thank you for the great service!

We have stayed in many Rome hotels in the past but this one has to be my favourite. The decor is classic Italian and the bedrooms clean and comfortable.
Staff in the dining room were extremely helpful and the views were unbeatable.
It is in a perfect location near the Colosseum. Would definitely choose this hotel again.
