The First Luxury Art Hotel
Ranked #28 of 1,272 Hotels in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This is an amazing hotel, perfectly situated between The Vatican and the Colosseum, around the corner from the Piazza del popolo and the Via del Corso. It is quaintly tucked on a side street, a fabulous market on the corner where you can purchase wine, cheese, sweets, etc. One block from the Tiber river, you will never be lost and navigation to any site is a breeze. The breakfast was delightful, hot entrees, cold meats, cheeses, fruits, fresh baking, quality yogurt (no cheap plastic containers!) and prosecco. There was also an option for eggs to order, which we declined already having too many options. We arranged for airport pick up through the hotel, and while more expensive than a taxi it was direct in all ways, a necessary luxury after a long trip. The driver graciously offered cold water, Italian candies and a narrative of the ancient city while enroute. The welcome at the hotel by Giuseppe was warm and efficient, and included invaluable recommendations to local restaurants off the tourist path for afforable and excellent Roman cuisine. When our plans fell through for a cooking class, staff at the hotel arranged private classes for the next day which included pick up and drop off at the hotel. Our suite was spotless, a comfy haven with dreamy mattresses and pillows. Our room had two French doors onto a quiet patio which allowed us to sleep blissfully with the doors open to the fresh air. Our only complaint was the lack of adequate lighting for make-up application in the dark bathroom, perhaps a lighted make up mirror? The roof top deck is spectacular to say the least, and is featured on Luxury Link as one of the top 9 hotel decks in the world, rightfully so. We were greedily happy that the roof bar was closed (off season), we often had the multi-tiered beauty to ourselves!

We arrived after our all night flight. The room was not quite ready. The manager offered us a glass of prosecco was very refreshing. We were recommended a place for lunch. More on that later. We were taken to our room where we settled in. Everyone out of their way to accommodate us.

Room Tip: A jacuzzi suite with a patio is the room to select.

Rome is one of the most beautiful historical cities in the world. When you visit Rome, you would like to stay near these historical monuments.
I visited Rome in March, it was one of my honeymoon destinations, so I was looking for a hotel that has a romantic nature, quiet and comfortable. So i had chose this hotel after I read about it in many web sites.
The hotel was amazing, its located in a quiet and beautiful place close to all the historical monuments and near the shopping area, also there are a lot of restaurants close to the hotel.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful especially the shift leader Mrs. Meriam ,she was very cooperative.
The hotel has a special character you won’t find it in other hotels, which is the beautiful paintings spread across the hotel.
Really i enjoyed stay in this hotel.

Great location and splendid hotel, the highlight being the views from the roof terrace which are spectacular. On arrival we enjoyed a glass of prosecco which was a lovely touch. The continental breakfast was very comprehensive and we particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon.

We spent five days at this hotel celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.Our flight ( courtesy of Monarch ! ) was four hours late so the warm welcome and glass of Prosecco was particularly appreciated.We had a junior suite which had everything you could wish for with a fantastically comfortable bed.Only negatives were that the roof top restaurant was not open so dining restricred to the michelin starred restaurant which as you would expect tended to provide brilliantly presented and cooked but expensive small quantity dishes.When we dined there ( just the once ! ) they surprisingly ran out of one of the very limited first courses by 8.30 when it was only half full.At the time of year we stayed (April )they did not switch on the air conditioning which meant we opened the windows only to be awakened early in the morning by noises from the street mainly being deliveries to the hotel or refuse collection.
That said the staff at all levels were brilliant and helped us find some great places to eat !

Room Tip: The junior suites are worth the extra ! If the air conditioning is not switched on and you want to...

We got in after a long flight to find the concierge named Meriam who helped is tremendously to find our way around the city and to find the best restaurants. I would definitely go back. In addition to the service, the restaurant was exquisite. Definitely the best experience I could have asked for.

This hotel is located very close to Piazza Popolo and we picked the hotel based on the location. The check in was very quick and very pleasant. We booked two rooms and the rooms were clean and spacious with comfortable beds. The staff made us feel very welcome. We went to Rome to celebrate my daughter's birthday. On her birthday, the hotel staff came to our room with a birthday cake and surprised us. The hotel has a lot of unique paintings displayed all over. The drinks, food and service were excellent at the restaurant/ bar.
