“Superb location, rooms getting tired.”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Just checked out after 3 nights at the Forum Hotel in Rome.

Superb location for exiting the forum, circus and the colosseum etc. can't fault that.

Stayed in room 218/219 as a family and it's getting tired. Sunken lumpy mattresses and very squeaky wooden bed frames (even just moving a leg!). Rooms big and bathrooms big but grouting looking black and old shower curtains a bit mingy for 400 euro a night.

Breakfast service good and happy but limited choice. Eggs in fat or water was a surcharge - 4 Stars? No!.

Roof top bar one special place but only open from 5pm - Mojitos to die for! Don't expect lunchtime coffee up there from the restaurant - restaurant service only in the restaurant.

The location of the hotel is really marvellous and unique!
We are really sorry that you didn't enjoy the rooms and if we would have been advised we would have changed the rooms.
The american buffet breakfast served in the Roof Garden is included of eggs and water and there is no extra charge.
The breakfast service begins at 7.00am and ends at 11.00am; after that there is the preparation of the restaurant for the lunch.

We booked this hotel because of its central location. All the sights were within an easy walking distance. The free wifi was most welcome as it meant that I was able to book cars and trips from the comfort of our room.
We never tried the hotel restaurant as it seemed somewhat overpriced at what would have amounted to about £100 per couple each evening. There are two very good local restaurants, recommended by the hotel staff within a stone's throw.

Room Tip: Room 201 has a good view of the Forum

We stayed here with some friends while we did the Rome Marathon. The staff are a real asset to this hotel. The location is fantastic, right on the Forum and 2 minutes from the Coliseum. The rooms are small but perfectly good. There is WiFi in the rooms too. Would stay here again

We stayed for 5 nights courtesy of a Groupon deal at £360 in breakfast. Staff and service was very friendly and obliging, we followed restaurant recommendations and these were very good indeed. This was the ideal type of hotel for us as we do not like being waited on hand and foot which usually comes with the feeling of being watched all the time, the service was polite and reserved but they were always there to help when needed.
Value for us was exceptional but we were looking for a good deal, which this was, for us the full room rate would have been beyond our budget but this does not mean it would not be good value.
Despite being at the front of the hotel the windows were extremely effective in keeping noise out. We did have the window open most nights and there was quite a lot of noise but this is what I was expecting with a city centre hotel, if you wish tranquillity then you stay 10miles out.
Room was spotless albeit they are "city size rooms but again exactly what I was expecting for a city hotel squeezed into a medieval convent. Decor throughout was very traditional and kept to a very high standard. Things like travel adaptors were available free from reception.
Our daily breakfast in the rooftop restaurant was high quality with a very good choice of hot and cold, the pastries were to die for. The hotel location is second to none and we will long remember sipping coffee whilst looking out directly onto the Forum and Panatine Hill. We did not have dinner in the restaurant as the price was easily 3 times that of other restaurants in the locality and we actually prefer walking out to sample the local Trattorias of which there are many.
The hotel was not bristling with additional features but for us this was certainly not what we were looking for and I suspect most others would be the same in that after an exhausting day sightseeing a good shower and a comfy bed would be highest on the list.
A great break, we really could not have hoped for better. Thank you Hotel Forum, we will undoubtedly struggle to find better.

Room Tip: If you are fussy speak to the hotel directly, they are most obliging and will try their best I am su...

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...
