“A Haven after a long day sight-seeing.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Booked for 5 nights,as part of a British Airways city break. Had picked out the hotel after looking at previous reviews and was pleased to find it on the BA web-site.
Got the Leonardo Express train from Fiumicino Airport very easily at 14 Euros each. Arrived at Termini Station after about 30 minutes. Walked to hotel, by heading straight out the front of the Termini building and across coach station area, to the Repubblica building, then left into Via Nationale. The hotel was a few metres down on the left-hand side, very easy to find. It took about 15 minutes.
Had booked 2 comfort rooms for husband and me and 2 adult sons. Rooms were next to each other, as requested, on the first floor,103 and 104.
Modern rooms with plenty of storage and very comfy large beds. Air con, lighting, furniture, facilities, double glazing, in room safe were all excellent. No problems with noise inside or out, although you could open window if you wanted to hear the city noise. Free mini bar set us up with drinks each day and a few snacks to top us up.
Breakfast choice was good, (sausages were lovely) and although quite busy most days the longest we waited was about 10 minutes on one day only.
The rooftop restaurant can be reached by walking through the bar area which has formal and comfy seating. The restaurant itself has indoor and outdoor seating. Best to book if you want to have meal in restaurant outside as it's quite small and gets booked up. Menu is fine dining and the meals we had were delicious. My husband particularly liked the artisan ale they served in the bar.
There is a lounge area downstairs with complimentary self service coffee and we enjoyed a couple of evenings there watching the World Cup!!
Free Wi-fi was good and access to PC downstairs no problem.
A few negatives - more shelving would have been useful in the bathroom to put your own toiletries on - fresh milk in room for tea and coffee would have been nice as, there is already a fridge and the long life milk pots aren't very nice - web-site gives the impression there is a cafe, there isn't and when we asked, on our first night, having arrived quite late, if we could order bar snacks we were told there was restaurant food only - I didn't enjoy breathing in another guests cigar smoke one evening when sat in the bar area - It is a long way to go to get a drink from the bar, which is on the 7th floor with access by a lift in one part of the hotel - service in the restaurant could be a bit slow and on one occasion our order for drinks was forgotten - complimentary newspaper for English is only Financial times.
The location is excellent, about 20 mins from most things and shopping in Via Nationale is quite good, with a Spar across the road. We walked everywhere, including all the attractions - Colosseum (make sure you book, queuing is horrendous), Spanish steps (swarming with sellers selling cheap rubbish and trying to force roses into your hands), Trevi Fountain (don't bother covered in scaffolding), High St shopping in Via del Corso (very good), the Pantheon (amazing). We even walked to St Peter's which was probably about a 45 min walk and took advice and arrived there at about 4.30pm to avoid the queues. Entrance to Basilica is free although there was still a short security queue. There is a charge and long queues to go to the top of the dome and the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums.
A couple of local restaurants were outstanding, Berzitello Restorante, in via del Quattro Fontane, just a few minutes from the hotel. We found a lot of the staff in the local shops and restaurants tend to play hard to get and it's a mission to get them to crack a smile, the staff in this place were so friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. Similarly Est!Est!Est! in via Genova, a no frills place, but friendly and good food.
We had ice creams at the Gelato next to the hotel and at the artisan Gelato di San Crispino near Trevi Fountain, both were lovely.
We took the metro to Ostia Antica which is an ancient archeological site ( a bit like a small scale Pompeii). It took about half an hour to get there and was a nice trip away from the city's hustle and bustle. Nothing there for children though, but there are plenty of toilets and a cafe!
Check out and the return journey to the airport, back on the Leonardo Express were without incident, beware the youngsters at the termini who try to help you with tickets though, they are just after your money!
Can't wait to go back to the Artemide Hotel, a real haven after a long day sight-seeing.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough, thoughtful review of our hotel! You had so many positive details here that I’m sure many prospective guests will have all their questions answered.

We are pleased to hear that so many of the aspects of the hotel, from the modern design of the rooms, to the gentility and attentiveness of the staff, to the location and welcoming atmosphere, were able to give you a new home away from home!

Though you have only a few negative points, we would like to look into any problems that you may have had! The shelving in the bathroom: we are collecting feedback on the new rooms to put the finishing touches to them if necessary – more shelf space is a good idea! As the majority of our guests have not asked for fresh milk in the rooms, it is not provided, though if you had asked our staff, we would have been happy to provide some for a nice cup of tea or coffee! The café is the same place as our Rooftop Bar. It serves both alcoholic beverages and café standard fare, sorry if this was unclear. We are sorry that for some reason your drink order had been misplaced. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, as it will aid us in the upkeep of the standards of our rooftop wait staff. As for the position of the bar, if you happen to have a room on Via Nazionale, then you will just have to come down to the main hall and take the other elevator to the rooftop. This is not too much of a journey, we can assure you, and there is always the alternative of ordering from your room or from the lobby (meeting us halfway!). Snacks are available through room service from 7 in the morning till midnight, or should you come to the restaurant during dinner hours, you could order some hors d'oeuvres or a starter plate to munch on! Again, we are sorry to hear that all your options were not explained to you, a late night snack is a must and we are sorry if you were unable to find something satisfying.

Lastly, in the rooms we have a list of complimentary newspapers that we deliver every morning to the room when chosen. The list includes among others, the Financial Times, USA Today, the International Herald Tribune, and the Wall Street Journal. We are sorry this was not brought to your attention, but you could have also enjoyed any in the main floor lounge area.

Again we are sorry that most of these problems could have been resolved if they had been brought to our attention, but as it is it seems that your stay was very much to your satisfaction!

Thank you for the advice and compliments and we look forward to having you with us again soon! Ciao!

What an amazing experience in the honeymoon suite room 501. Words can not express how beautiful and special this room is with its air conditioned living area and outside terrace with private hot tub, it is incredibly romantic. If your looking for an over the top experience with romance and charm, book room 501. Second honeymoons can be even better than the first. The hotel treated us like royalty from the moment we arrived, with a delicious breakfast buffet as well. Our first meal in Rome was at the roof top restaurant which serves elegant meals with flawless service. It turned out to be our favorite meal in Rome. Front desk was always helpful with meal suggestions, as well as directions. Hotel Artemide made our time in Rome very special indeed.

Room Tip: Room 501 is breathtaking!

Based on recommendations on Trip Advisor, my husband and I booked 3 nights at the Artemide Hotel for our first trip to Rome. The hotel was wonderful. Very comfortable, delicious breakfasts, and extra comfy beds. (We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite for no extra charge.) The hotel was very clean, the amenities were excellent, including a wonderful roof top restaurant. The staff at the hotel was very helpful. The location was downtown, walkable to lots of locations, but we ended up taking taxis frequently because of the heat, and also because of the amount of walking and stair climbing we did at each destination. It was an A+ experience, and I'd recommend the hotel to anyone.

We have just spent 5 nights at the Hotel Artemide in Rome and had a very pleasant experience.

Prior to our arrival the hotel answered all emailed questions promptly and efficiently.

When we arrived we found the hotel (which is in a pretty building on the busy Via Nationale) to be beautifully and modernly renovated with very friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately we don't speak any Italian but this wasn't a problem as all the staff we encountered spoke English very well.

The location is good with most of the major sights a relatively short walk away. There is also a nearby Metro station (Republica) which can take you to St Peters on the other side of the Tiber.

The hotel is quite boutique (perhaps 50 odd rooms) so you weren't assailed by tour group hordes nor ever waiting long for the lift.

The room was obviously newly renovated and throughout our stay spotlessly cleaned daily. The free minibar in the room was great. The hotel even swapped their regular "full strength" soft drinks selection to diet drinks for us when we requested. The air conditioning worked well which was a relief after hot days out and about in Rome in July.

The business centre with printer was useful as was free wifi in the rooms. The lounge area was pleasant and comfortable and became a guest focal and meeting point for the two World Cup semi finals.

Breakfast was also included in our room rate and was a good selection of healthy foods. The selection was the same daily however every day a "special treat" was prepared by the chef and offered around the room by a waiter; Tiramasu, Profiteroles etc Yum.

On our final day we had a late flight out of Rome so the hotel gave us a complimentary later checkout (1pm) then still allowed us to use the lounge/business centre as required until our taxi to the airport. They even offered us showers at a co owned hotel several streets away (but were unable at this premises as it was fully booked this night)

There is also a rooftop terrace where you can use your welcome drinks vouchers.

We didn't try the spa or gym downstairs.

The only minor negative could find was the rooms were a bit small but feel this is probably common for Rome Hotels in old buildings.

Overall a hotel experience which we couldn't fault.

My children and I spent two weeks in Europe. I planned and booked all of our travel, hotel and excursions. The room was large and comfortable for the three of us --including a tall teen. The daily complimentary snacks were helpful and the breakfast served downstairs was just enough. We arrived early on a Sunday and immediately went sightseeing! The hotel is tucked into a shopping district, but there are also nice and reasonably priced restaurants tucked on the side streets. As a single mom traveling with two children I felt safe and the service staff remembered us and gave great suggestions! I've sent other family and friends there too! The elevator was small but fun! Hotel is perfect for walks to the Colosseum and the fountain. I was actually there May 2013, but I am just now having a moment to catch up on my reviews!

Room Tip: I used booking.com and got a great rate!
