Aurelius Art Gallery Hotel
Ranked #75 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 February 2014

We stayed at the Hotel Aurelius for a total of four nights before and after a Mediterranean cruise. We booked the hotel based on the reviews and, as with the others who booked for the same reason, the reviews proved true and we greatly appreciated all those who shared their experience at Hotel Aurelius. They really do things well when it comes to hospitality and nice accommodations.

The hotel is situated on the edge (I do mean edge - only a narrow sidewalk between) of a very busy street in the heart of Rome. Being from the suburbs of Indiana, this was very "city" and not the quiet streets I am used to. That was the only down-side to what we would have preferred. But, we got used to the busy-ness and the noise from outside the hotel did not spill into the hotel lobby or our room. We had no trouble manuevering to our destinations - even with a walker that my friend had to use. The narrow sidewalks to go down the street were sometimes a challenge but not impossible. We were leery of the area at first but after getting used to the city, felt much more safe there than in the more crowded areas of the city that were closer to the tourists sights. The pick-pocket crime rate in Rome is very high and you have to be on guard at all times. So, I was very glad to be in an area away from streets with lots of crowds.

We had one of the rooms on the top floor with the balcony. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate for us to enjoy the balcony as it was rainy and chilly most of our time there. It would have been a nice place to sit and relax as it was set up with a table and two chairs under a cloth gazebo. Our room was clean and updated and the bathroom and shower were beautifully tiled and very spacious for a European hotel. I've been to Europe several times and stayed in many places and most have very tiny bathrooms and bedrooms but that was not the case here. While not a big open space, we had no problems moving around. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet and clean. With the rainy weather, we didn't go out much at night and took advantage of the hotel lobby playing cards and dining on McDonald's food a couple of nights (sometimes the familiar food of McDonald's - only a block away - is just a comfort after dining in a foreign country for over a week).

I can't say enough about the hotel staff that went out of their way to serve us in many ways while we were there. They helped with taxi's, trains, sight-seeing, places to eat and directions. At one point during a storm, the phones and internet were not working and Francesca (think that was her name - sorry) let me use her personal cell phone to make a local call to the airport. She looked up numbers for us and helped us in many ways. John Franco was so kind and helpful in answering so many questions for us and in directing us to all kinds of places; and Renatta was very helpful with our reservations. The staff makes this really nice hotel a great place to stay.

I can't forget to mention the waiter who held off breaking down the breakfast buffet until 11:00 our first day there after we got held up at the airport. The buffet was excellent with lots of delicious choices for breakfast. The only thing I really missed was having a fresh pot of coffee instead of the machine that dispensed very strong coffee, cappuccino, hot water and hot chocolate. Every time I used it, there was a frothy residue on top of the coffee like a cappuccino and extremely strong. With the pre-measured liquid that comes from the machine, it makes it difficult to add hot water without over-filling the cup. Honestly though, I'm one who has to have lots of cream and sugar in my coffee to hide the real taste so you can take this comment with a grain of salt. I ended up just drinking hot chocolate instead so I survived.

Thank you John Franco, Francesca and Renatta for making our stay so pleasant. You made us feel very at home in a foreign country. We wish the very best to you all and to Hotel Aurelius. Blessings and thank you!

Dear Cindy,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a testimonial on Tripadvisor regarding your stay at our Hotel Aurelius.

As I've said before we consider our Hotel Aurelius as a big house where we like to entertain guests / friends who come from all over the world.
And that is why you see us so full attention to you: because it is the same thing that we would do for our friends at home ...

Of course we know that if we had a hotel in the center of Rome probably would become even more appreciated for its location but, in that case, we would become a much more expensive hotel ...

Really thank you for the friendship shown towards our hotel.

Thank you.

My husband and I stayed here over valentines weekend. The staff were very friendly anh helpfulm they recommended some great places to eat. They even arranged a birthday cake and a bottle of presseco to be sent to our room on my husband's birthday. The hotel 2 mins from a metro stop and so travelling around rome was easy. It is 3 stops from Vatican City. The hotel has a small jazzuci and sauna which can be booked and therefore you can have private use which is great. We would definitely go back.

My fiance & I stayed here for 3 nights 11- 14 February 2012, booked it based on great reviews on tripadvisor, we was not disappointed, arrived late afternoon & was greeted by Renata who was very welcoming & explained where the local places to eat were & explained the metro system to us so we could see the sights in the following days even supplied us with a little hand drawn map to explain where they were..
Our room had everything we needed but we could of done with some milk in the room for the coffee but when we asked reception they were only to happy to supply some, the whole hotel was spotless! The bathroom was so shiny i was very impressed.
Wifi & phone lines were hit & miss in the time we were there because of the rain they'd had in previous days affecting the service which was a bit annoying at times, but this was no fault of the hotels at all & they still gave out the codes for us to try it.
Breakfast had everything you could want to set you up for the day ahead, from bacon & eggs, fruit to cakes & a selection of hot & cold drinks too & you was greeted by the chef who kept everything topped up & clean.
The Metro is a stones throw away right on the corner of the street you can be at most major sights in about 10 mins, after a long day sightseeing we headed to local restaurant Ferro & Gisha we went the 3 nights we were there, wanted to try other places in the area but was too impressed with the food, service & atmosphere, that we stuck with what we knew as we wouldn't be disappointed.
We enjoyed our trip, can't fault anything at all, even the traffic was a talking point, taking your life in your hands every time you stepped outside was certainly interesting! Be careful.

A big thank you to all the staff at the Aurelius for helping make our short trip perfect, especially Renata for her maps & info, the Chef for the delicious breakfast, Gian-Franco for his smiley happy face whatever time day or night & the cleaners who do a fantastic job keeping the hotel spotless, we'd defiantly stay there again.

It was my first time in Rome and i found a nice deal at this hotel for 4 nights. At the check in Gianfranco was kind and efficient. He provided me with information and helped me out with whatever i needed. There was a problem with the wifi because of the previous rains and he helped me get access at the internet store next door. The room was clean and nice, i reserved a superior room which isn't big but very comfortable with a big balcony. This area is not a touristic area which also has advantages. the Metro is 5 minutes away and there's also a supermarket 2 minutes away. The spa was nice, we had a free access and it was a nice way to end the day. The breakfast was great and very convenient.
The service was exellent, which made this stay wonderful. Both Gianfranco and Renata at the reception and the cook were kind, friendly and always had a positive attitude and a smile.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, definitely worth the money.

Stayed three nights at the Aurelius in January 2014. I booked this hotel based on the trip advisor reviews, as they all seemed to be fantastic. I was definitely not let down, what a great hotel this is.

We arrived and were greeted by a friendly and helpful receptionist who assisted us in checking in, we came back down and she recommended a nice little restaurant about 300 yards away for a quick meal as we arrived pretty late. The room was nice, a huge balcony overlooking the local area with a very stylish bathroom. Some wallpapering was coming away in places in the bedroom, but a very minor issue that didn't affect our stay whatsoever.

Breakfast was brilliant for such a small hotel, a wide selection that we both enjoyed. Again, the receptionist on duty was more than happy to recommend places to go and to see, and provided us with a map of all of the local attractions. She was even kind enough to print off a map and directions to the zoo for us, and translated the webpage of information to us.

The location was very good, a 5 minute walk from a metro station. The metro ran to all the local attractions and sights, so despite not being right in the city centre, it takes less than 5 minutes walk and a small ride on the metro to get anywhere.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody.

Dear Guest,

really thank you very much for the kind words addressed to our Hotel Aurelius. And thanks again for having desired to share them with all the Tripadvisor's Members.
In this way, the effort that we put into our daily work get a great satisfaction.
You are right when you say that, although not in the historical center, Aurelius has a good location because with a short metro ride will get you everywhere ... I would then add two other reasons: the first is related to the rates that far from the center are cheaper. The second is that near our hotel, not being strictly tourist area, you can find good and inviting restaurants.

Thank you again.

Stayed four nights at this excellent hotel. Although on the outskirts of city it is easy to take the metro or bus into the centre. We asked for a room at the back which was pretty quiet. The best recommendation however has to be for the staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, definitely the best in any hotel we have stayed in.Special thanks to Renata who gave us ideas on which local restaurants to try, you are a really credit to the hotel and we will certainly remember our stay for a positive reasons.Thank you very much.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back (4 or 5)

Dear Banu,

I thank you for wanting to share your thoughts on Tripadvisor about our Hotel Aurelius.
Even with your testimony we can improve our service increasingly putting more and more attention to detail in order to become even more competitive with the hotels in the center of Rome (seeing from the perspective of tariff, in fact, we are already much more convenient).
Thanks again and hope to see you again in Rome.
