“Good stay”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Inn from October 11-13, 2011, in an executive room on the first floor (what I would call the second floor). The hotel and room were very nice, clean and well maintained and we really enjoyed the roof terrace, garden and archaeological site on the main floor. Breakfast was also good. The staff, particularly Hildur, was very friendly and efficient. Location was excellent. My husband was impressed with the two phase toilet flushing--very efficient and not seen here in the States! My only (minor) issues were the poor lighting in the room, which made it difficult to read, and the need for more than one trashcan in the room.

It's our first trip to Rome, and we chose to stay at the hotel since it's close to the Colosseum, and the Forum. We had to say the staffs were joyful and helpful. The place was quiet, and it's at dead-end street. We had one of the larger room on the third floor, it's spacious but it's lack of useful things like a working table, or a chaise like other 4star hotels. The light decoration was not practical, dark. We were not able to watch TV unless we had to lay down on the foundation bed.
Nevertheless, we enjoyed the staffs, who took care breakfast and snacks on the fourth floor. They were cheerful, helpful, and dependable.
In short, we recommend this hotel base on its location, and staff service. The hotel value and its rooms could be improved so it could earn 4 star rating.

Everything in Rome is expensive and whilst this hotel is no exception it is very good value for money too.
From the moment of booking this hotel I was not disappointed with personalised e mails confirming my reservation and acknowledging personal requests for room selection.
On arrival( yes its a bit tricky to find, but 20 mins walk from Termini station ) we were welcomed with a fruit juice drink whilst allowing us to wander the hotel's own ruins whilst awaiting check in completion. We were then informed of our upgrade to executive room( amazing, with one of the biggest beds ever laid eyes on let alone laid in) and were led to the room.This hotel only has 13 rooms but I have to say our room was elegantly decorated with plush furnishings, with all the usual and to be expected personal little luxuries. Robes slippers and mini bar.... and good old English breakfast tea together with a plethora of flavoured teas!
The room was set on the second floor at the front of the hotel and was very quiet indeed. The roof terrace was beautifully laid out, even in Autumn October. There was a complementary buffet each afternoon with the purchase of a drink and I ahve to say the cost again was reasonable.
There is free wifi in hotel lobby useful for pre booking tickets and skipping long queues for teh Vatican and the most friendly and helpful staff members from start to finish.
The hotel is set just 10 minute walk to Colusseum, Forum and Palatine and about 15 to Trevi. It really is ideally located whilst being set peacefully away from hustle and bustle.
If you dont need meeting rooms, conference facilities, gymn, sauna or pool...this really is the hotel for you. You wont be disappointed and personally in my top 10 favorites across Europe.

Room Tip: E mail ahead and make your request direct to hotel even if booking through other websites.

One of the most unique places I've stayed in Europe. A hotel with its own ruin is pretty hard to come by. The rooms each have a unique, but extremely well-designed decor and are very spacious for such an urban location. Speaking of location, it's about a 2 block walk to the Colosseum and half that to the Forum. Also, the rooftop lounge, patio and garden area are a nice oasis that gives an open-air feeling rare in a city like Rome.

Alll this is great, but the service at the hotel was truly top notch. I would expect this to be the case during the stay, but I was really surprised at the service after my stay: I left some belongings in my room, and they were promptly mailed to me free of charge (overseas, I might add) and with a very helpful attitude on top. Can;t wait to stay at the Inn again!

We have recently come back from Rome. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary.
We stayed at the Inn at the roman forum. We have read a few negative comments relating to the staff being rude etc. Please let me put this straight.We had a bit of a booking incident where we turned up to find they had no idea who we were (blame thomas cook for that one)
The girls on reception were fantastic they sat with us on the phone trying to call England to find out where the bookings were for hours getting the we value your call speech from the Thomas cook customer service line.But eventually we got it sorted out all thanks to the staff, we did lose our choice of our rooms but the one we got was small but really nice.The best thing about this hotel is the location.We were litrally 2 mins walk from the forum and we had seen 4 of the big sites in about 2 hours.I would recoment this hotel to others going to rome.While you are there also check out their sister hotel inn at the Spanish steps, which is a 10 second walk to the spanish steps and is located in the high end shopping area which we took full advantage of.

Room Tip: Make sure Thomas cook don't mess up your booking

What a delight, hidden away in a location second to none. Quiet, elegant and attentive to guests' needs. Easy walking distance to some of Rome's greatest sights (The Collosseum, Forum and more) as well as to the "untouristed" local scene. An added bonus is an actual Roman structure on site. A little gem.

Room Tip: ask for a garden room
