Just moments from the Spanish Steps and the Piazza del Popolo (metro) and some of the most upscale shopping you will ever see. The staff were warm and wonderful, the breakfast was adequate, the rooms were small, clean and charming. We had the triple that had 2 floors. Via Marguatta was such a wonderful street to stay on quiet but so close everything. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Typical small European rooms

We've been to Rome a few times and it's difficult to find a hotel in a nice location for a reasonable price. Hotel Forte is exactly this.
We stayed with our 7 year old daughter for 4 nights in a triple room at the end of April.
The location is fantastic - right near the expensive shops in Rome and the Spanish Steps. Ideal for getting around Rome. The hotel is down a small "arty" street and is just beautiful.
The room we stayed in was a nice size - an L shaped room with a bed in the bottom of the L for my daughter to sleep in. The view from the room wasn't great but from talking to other guests you can have a nice view of the street, which is very noisy or a bad view of a courtyard, but these rooms are quieter.
Breakfast was great - plenty of choice and the lady was very lovely.
The staff on reception were very helpful and even let me practice my Italian on them and didn't insist on speaking English with me (very patient).
The only negative I can say is that when we visited Rome the weather was hot for us and the room was too hot. When asked why the air conditioning wasn't working we were told that they don't switch it on until May. This made the room VERY uncomfortable to sleep in.
Other than that - a lovely find in Rome.

Stayed: April 2014

Dear Guest

Thank you very much for the time you have spent to write this wonderful review of Hotel Forte. as you wrote the Hotel fort is one of the most romantic and quiet streets of Rome, Margutta, which is nicknamed the road deglia artists because it still is chosen by the artists who stay in the Eternal City. In addition, twice a year, Margutta hosts a world-famous exhibition, A Hundred Painters Margutta, and then at that time the road becomes a museum open sky, for more details visit our official website. we hope to see you soon, we will be happy to accommodate you again.

My family and I stayed 4 nights in Rome at the Hotel Forte and I can definitely agree with the other reviews that the location is just fantastic. So easy to get around in the city from this central location - very close to the Metro station.

We received excellent service from all of the hotel staff - from dinner reservations to directions to various locations around the city. They were overall eager to make our stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. Highly recommend Hotel Forte for the value and location.

Room Tip: One of the rooms was a 2-story room with the beds on one floor and the bath downstairs. Might want to be sure stairs aren't an issue.

The hotel does not serve food other than an average breakfast and has no real facilities which probably explains the 3 star rating. That said, it is clean and full of character, located in a pretty street beside the Spanish Steps. In any case, in a city with so much to see you will not spend much time in your hotel and this could not be in a better position. There are great places to eat nearby (recommend Ciampino at the top of the Spanish Steps and Antico Anetoca a few streets away from the hotel for a more laid back drink and good rustic cooking) and it is a short walk from Piazza del Poppelo and the Borghese Park which is a great place to spend an afternoon with a bottle of prosecco and picnic.

Dear Guest

Thank you very much for the wonderful review you wrote about Hotel Forte. Our location is really beautiful and the hotel Forte has been decorated and furnished to reflect the artistic soul of Via Margutta , one of the most fascinating and romantic streets of Rome. as you will have noticed the colors chosen for the decor of the public areas and guest rooms of the Hotel Forte are the Pompeian red and yellow gold, and were chosen to recall the colors of Imperial Rome , you can find a photo gallery in our detailed Official website . All our staff is composed of people who like to stay in contact with others, and this obviously reflects positively on their way to work and on the relationships that often have with our guests. I hope that the next time you return to the Eternal City you will choose us again, we will be happy to accommodate you again.

As has been noted by most other reviewers, it's really hard to beat the location here...essentially a block from the Spanish Steps and Spagna metro station. I don't really understand the appeal of the Spanish Steps themselves (it's a staircase in front of a church), but the value for the city center location was magnificent. Essentially we walked to anything we wanted and when we got tired we took the metro back to the hotel. The only site we didn't walk to was the Vatican. I believe the Vatican would have only been about a 30 minute walk...not unbearable, especially if you were stopping at Castel Sant'Angelo along the way (plus the metro station itself is several blocks from the Vatican). Hotel Forte itself is located on Via Margutta which is a very pretty street itself, and is located off the main stretch...which means that it's fairly quiet most of the time without the traffic (vehicle traffic or tourist foot traffic) of the main thoroughfares. Via Margutta is host to several very nice art galleries and makes for some nice window shopping. However, as in the rest of Rome, it seems difficult to identify what the hours are associated with any of the businesses (sometimes it feels like business hours are "whenever they feel like working").

The complimentary breakfast was a very nice amenity in a city where everything seems to be outrageously priced. Breakfast typically included a selection of eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, pastries, cereal and fruit...none of which were outstanding, but it did a solid job of holding you over until lunch.

The staff was always friendly, greeting you on the way out and welcoming you on your way back in. They provided several suggestions for dining and sightseeing. We felt like our room was spacious in terms of European rooms. That said, we were traveling with our son, and were fortunate enough to be able to book a room that had a niche with a second bed, so that may have given us some extra space in the room. The bathroom was your typical European efficiency-type bathroom...pretty small but adequate.

Dear Guest

First of all thank you for the time you devoted to write this wonderful review Hotel Forte and I'm really happy that you enjoyed it with us. Hotel Forte, just as you wrote, it enjoys an incredible location in the heart of Rome, but in a small pedestrian street dotted with many art galleries and art shows, in fact, precisely because of its artistic spirit Via Margutta is nicknamed the "street artists", for more information, please visit our official Web site. I hope you'll come back soon and visit us, we will be happy to accommodate you again.
