Besides there's no elevator, everything was perfect.
Tiny hotel, nice rooms, good breakfast brought to your room according to a checklist.
Great location, 5 minutes from the metro and within 10 minutes walk from the Colesseo, Fontana di Trevi, etc.
Mauro, the receptionist was most kind and helpful.
He gave us tips to save us precious time and places that locals prefer to eat that made our short visit in Rome pleasurable.
We strongly recommend this hotel.
Ciao,

"The smallest hotel in Rome" is seven rooms in an unmarked building in a fantastic neighborhood in the city center. No elevator, reception is open for limited hours during the day -- but get past those minor inconveniences and you will find everything else to make for a comfortable, relaxing, stay in a fantastic city. Perfect dining and tourist recommendations from the staff. Simple but home-style breakfasts served in your room. Walking distance from the train station, to the Colosseum, to bars/restaurants and museums, etc. For the price (or even double the price) it would be difficult to find a better option than Hotel de Monti.

The hotel was within a walking distance from Termini train station, where we arrived with Leonardo Express from Fiumicino airport. Yes, there were no big signs in the hotel door, but since we had checked the address from google street view, it was easy to find the right pink house and the right brown door. There is no elevator, but we knew that already and that was no problem with us.

We had a streetside room with a nice view along Via dei Capocci. The view was like a scene in a movie, like a friend said after seeing a photo! There was no noice from the street after the window was closed. ;)

At first I was a bit worried about not having a fridge in the room, since couple of days before our trip I got medicine that needed to be kept in cool. But no worries! Everything possible was done for me and the stuff took care of my medicine and gave it to me whenever needed. I even got my medicine brought to me with breakfast, without even asking.

All in all we were very pleased for this hotel and its exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, they always made us smile. This hotel was one of the high spots in our Italian trip, and many times we thanked ourselves for choosing this hotel instead of some higher-stars-but-less-personality option.

All our love to you, Mauro & co.!

Room Tip: Room 37: windows to the street and nice view.

This hotel was a great find- on booking I was nervous due to the low star rating but don't be put off! As clearly stated on hotels site there is no lift due to the age of the building but Mauro was on hand to assist with our bags on arrival. He was helpful from the moment we arrived high listing on a map areas best for food and areas to avoid due to high tourist prices as well as tips to avoid queues when visiting the colosseum. Tips were all spot on and we were able to see far more in our short stay than had we not have got the tips.
Rooms were quite compact but comfortable and very clean. Internet was available free of charge in rooms. Breakfast was simple but delivered promptly at time of your choice.
For the location and price and of this hotel you could not ask for more.
Excellent staff, would recommend to others.

It is a very good hotel to stay near the bus stop. We got to stay in a room which was small but very neat and well-maintained. I had stayed in a number of hotels before but the customer service of Hotel de Monti is something to remember! Apart from being cordial and welcoming, the staff is very well-trained in hospitality, something which I really liked about this hotel. Room service was excellent and the breakfast was served at exactly the time promised. Great discipline!

Thank you!

Of course, one of the most important thing that we think has to be done, is hospitality, that inlcudes as well sharing with our guests all the little secrets in order to enjoy Rome at its best!

Please, remember also that we are a not a luxury Hotel and our rooms are at the third floor and there is no lift.

We look forward to meeting you again!

Nestled in one of Rome's best neighborhoods, this fourth floor walk-up hotel is a real gem. The rooms (only seven of them) are new, the service is first-rate, and the daily breakfast is simple and delicious. Compared to other hotels in the area, the value is tremendous. The trade-off is no on-site services after 8pm when the front-desk person departs.

We stayed at Hotel De Monti in April 2013. The place is centrally located an at a walking distance from almost all the local attractions - but so are most of the hotels in Rome. Most buildings are either restaurants, monuments or hotels - just kidding.
The check-in experience to begin could have been better. When they say Check in time is between 10-6 they really mean it. The charge post that is E 30 ( We tried to negotiate.)
The person who checked us in gave us just basic (sometimes incomplete) information about the hotel. I so wish it was Mauro - he is much more helpful.
The room was quite small, not much place to move around. The only thing that I liked about this hotel is it is super clean and hygienic.
The room was on the street side and quite noisy until very late night. You could hear the garbage van emptying the bins right to your bed. We complained to another guy who showed up the next morning, but he just smiled... :(
They needed us to settle the bill a day before, so we had to make a detour from our sight-seeing route, pay the bill and then go back... not to pleasant...
Breakfast is the same everyday and needs to be pre-ordered.
All and all a clean place to sleep in the city center. But it can be much more only if they decided.

Room Tip: Avoid street side rooms.

Hello and thank you for sharing your experience here.

But, please, let us clarify something:

- our location, lets you reach all the most important Roman monuments, within a maximum 25 minutes walking and it is not like this in most of the Hotels...we also are in the oldest and most characteristic part of Rome; here, is the place where Rome was built more than 2700 years ago, there is not any building brand new.

- about the check-in: it is written everywhere at what time is our check-in (1pm-6pm) and also that our reception officially opens at 1pm and closes at 8pm. It also written that late check-ins have a cost (30 euros) and you actually did not negotiate, WE did you the favor to let you pay half price as we called you (you did not advise us you were coming later) and it seemed you did not know our check-in was only until 6pm. We just thought it was appreciated as we letted you pay only 15 euros and we paid the rest.

- all our rooms are the same size, it just changes the dispostion of the room, all with double glassed windows and air conditioning, so with the windows closed and the air conditioning on, no noises from outside.

- You have been informed that the payment had to be done the day before check-out (10am), because reception is not open in the morning and we prefer our guests to pay at the very end of the service; why did you not tell us you were not able to come back, so we could set the payment at the check-in?

- our breakfat is brought in room every day and consists in all regional Roman local fresh products, there are absolutely no international/continental products and, reading the other reviews, it really seems you are the very first one that did not like it...

We anyway hope you will have the chance to come back, in order to explain better in which consists our service, which is not (sorry to say that) what you have wrote.

All the best!
