“An excellent hotel for work or holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

This is a fairly simple place, but with rare qualities. Family run. A very warm welcome, excellent breakfast and clean room, extremely close to the Vatican where I had to work for a few days. Nice area with good restaurants, too. I will go back and recommend it to every kind of traveler.

Room Tip: There is a special room on top floor for couples on a romance holiday - my room was on the 1st floor...

The hotel is just 1 minute walk to Vantican musuem, next to metro and bus stops, the staff is very helpful, my stay (7 days) at this hotel was amaing! If you book rooms from the official website of the hotel www.hearthhotel.com, you can get more discount than the booking.com.

I was in Rome over the holidays and everything was booked up and quite expensive. I ended up staying here over New Year's Eve and a few days around that time. The owner, Guido, is just wonderful. Really, I cannot imagine that a guest request would be too much effort for him at all. Enrico worked the desk also, and he was lovely, also speaking great English. They both took the time to go over the map, show me where public transport stops were, restaurants, and you could feel they genuinely care care about their guests. Both speak excellent English and are very focused on guests' needs and comfort.

The family recently began running the hotel. It is a converted monastery and there is a simplicity to the building and the rooms which is very peaceful. I think that they will be adding a little art to the place which will enhance the rooms.

The bed was very comfortable. I was in a room facing the Vatican walls, and the double paned windows were a godsend. ;-) I had a second floor room the first day and changed to a quieter third floor room facing the Vatican, which was quieter with a better view.

Breakfast was a nice, ample, simple affair with attentive service.

Although this is not the location that I prefer while staying in Rome as I don't have an interest in the Vatican and its surrounding area, the service is excellent, you can get buses and the metro at Ottaviano nearby, so I will return to Hearth tomorrow for my final night in Rome. They said that nearby is an express airport bus so that works perfectly for me.

This hotel definitely ranks very high customer care and I hope the hotel is a great success.

My mom and I had a lovely experience staying at the Hearth Hotel during our visit to Rome. The room was comfortable, clean and larger than I expected though simply furnished. The shower is quite tiny but we got used to it after a while. At first I was nervous that the location of the hotel was too far from the centre of the city but in the end we really enjoyed experiencing Rome in an area that was not very touristic. The neighborhood was safe and the location just walking distance from the metro, shops and many great restaurants. Guido and the rest of the staff really made our stay special - always friendly, accommodating and suggested many great places to visit. If you are planning a visit to Rome I highly recommend booking this hotel!

The location is ideal-- near Vatican city but also a short walk to the underground. I loved being in a real neighborhood (Prati) and experiencing the daily Roman life. The staff was very friendly and helpful... very willing to give advice and suggestions. This new family run hotel is extremely clean and well kept. The rooms were modern, sleek with very clean simple lines.
Highly recommend!

Nice and moderately priced Hotel with clean rooms, free Wi-Fi and pleasant, helpful staffs. The hotel was centrally located and it was therefore easy enough to access most of the City’s tourist attractions. I stayed here for almost a week, during which the air-condition in my room stopped working. It took the staff a while to fix it but they did make an honest effort, which is something I appreciate. The Hearth Hotel is just across the street from the Vatican Museum. The Ottaviano metro is within walking distance, in case one needs to travel across the city. I particularly loved the Roof top breakfast arrangement though it gets surprisingly noisy during the later part of the day. Had a good experience here and would definitely come back some day , probably on a longer vacation.
