“Wonderful Hotel in a perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

Having just spent 4 nights here, I can say that the staff are warm, polite, friendly and speak good English. On arrival we were given a map and the staff member circled our location and where all the 'sites' were.
5minutes walk to the Colleseum, Imperial Forum, 20 minutes walk to the Trevi Fountain (ish
Excellent good priced restuarants and cafes nearby, 50 Euros instead of the 90 you will pay up near the main tourist sites.
My top tip is to go to the Palentine, spend 12 Euros and get a joint ticket for here, the Forum and the Collesum. It allows you to go straight into the Collesum (when you see the lines at the ticket office you will be glad you did this!)
The ticket is valid for 24hrs so you dont have to do it all in one go.
The roof terrace for breakfast and evening drinks is relaxing and has a great view of the top of the Colleseum.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would certainly stay here again should I return to Rome

Room Tip: the private terraces are nice but as you spend most the day out in the city, unless you wish to spen...

Wonderful location within walking distance of Colosseum, Forum etc as well as public transport (Metro and buses) but in side street so quiet. Comfortable, clean rooms, not huge but more spacious than some European city hotels we've stayed in.
Breakfast was excellent - plenty of choice, good quality food and coffee, friendly service.
Reception/concierge staff were particularly helpful and polite.
We didn't try the roof top restaurant but used the other restaurants and bars around the hotel of which there are plenty.
There is a small air conditioned gym in the basement which my husband appreciated.
I would happily recommend this hotel.

I do stay in a lot of hotels for work so I can get picky, do the fact I rate this hotel so highly speaks for itself!
The Italians are stylish and this hotel fits the bill, it's also in a great location just 5 mins walk from the Colosseum.
Rooms are great, high ceilings, clean and good aircon.
Food is excellent, breakfast is good a d pasta in the evening is superb.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Needless to say if / when I go back to Rome I will be staying here.
Enjoy

A beautiful modern hotel, in a perfect location near the colesseum surrounded by lots of lovely restaurants and bars, and we did try quite a few of them. The staff are friendly and efficient, and the rooms beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We especially loved the roof top breakfast terrace where we could have breakfast with views of the Colesseum, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious, with an excellent choice of different foods. Waiters were very friendly and efficient, and the roof top is also an excellent place to have a night cap like we did, and have a lovely coffee and see the Colesseum lit up at night. Would definitely go back again.

Lovely modern, stylish hotel within 500m from the Colosseum. All the staff were very polite & courteous, and always willing to help at anytime. We arrived early before the check in time but our room was ready for us. We booked direct with the hotel and received a 4 night long stay deal with breakfast, free wifi and complimentary welcome drinks included. Breakfast was buffet style which could be taken on the roof terrace. Our room was a superior double, with excellent air conditioning which was appreciated when returning after a day walking around a very hot Rome. This hotel was excellent and would highly recommend it. This trip was to celebrate our silver wedding and the hotel & staff made it very special. We are already planning our next stay.

Beautiful, modern hotel. Roof-top breakfast terrace. Friendly staff who all speak English. Within wallking distance to the Colesseum, Forum and the Metro station. We arrived early and they found us a room right away which was appreciated as we were jet-lagged from our 8 hour flight. We would definitely stay there again!

Our family group of 7 stayed for 5 nights in July. Once again we were all impressed with the hotel staff, from front desk to the lovely roof top bar to the breakfast room with view of the Colosseum, to the cleaning staff. All were friendly, courteous and professional. Massimo Piselli, the front office manager was very helpful in helping us. The location, close to the Colosseum is convenient and the hotel is fabulous. We certainly would recommend this hotel.
