“What a luxury and distinctive gem in the centre of it all”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We just spent 2 beautiful days at the INN at the Roman Forum.

The INN has only 12 rooms that are decorated in an eclectic combination of antique and modern furniture; ours was big and very functional and very clean.
The INN is not only 100 meters from the Forum, but it has it own share of ancient artifacts arranged trough out the premises.

We prefer to say that we were not close to the Roman Ruins, we were in the ruins.
The breakfast is served at the roof top patio looking at the ruins or inside the lobby/living room also at the top, same in the early evening with drinks and canapés served.

The whole INN is so comfortable that some times you think about staying in the facilities and escape the whole hoards of tourists outside.

With the location and design of the INN, you get the impression that you are getting into your own private apartment not a hotel.

All the employees at the lobby as well as the butlers were terrific.

What a luxury and distinctive gem in the centre of it all. Looking forwar to our next visit

We highly recommend the INN to everyone that likes luxury, location, service in a very intimate way

Room Tip: The whole INN is very nice

My husband and I returned yesterday from a 6 night stay at this hotel. After reading a couple of reviews, before we went, the one room we were hoping not to get was 103- guess which one we got?! And it was beautiful. It's really important to remember that the hotel is situated in a little cobbled side street amidst tightly packed typical buildings. If you want a hotel that has open space around it, then book one of the modern monstrosities that are visible on the train journey from the airport just outside Rome. This hotel is right next to the splendour that is the Roman Forum and a 10 minute slow stroll to the Colisseum. It's quite a small hotel and is definitely boutique in style and deserves every one of it's 5 stars. The staff are attentive and helpful but never intrusive. They helped make our stay comfortable and memorable. Room 103 is a deluxe room with a huge bed, a fireplace and tasteful, artistic decor including a wonderful oversized, orange lampshade over the bed. There is an extra desk area which offered space to dress and put suitcases without them being in the way in the bedroom area. The closet wasnt huge but was perfectly adequate. We felt the room was spacious annd luxurious. If I'm being a bit bit picky, I would agree that the bathroom sealant needed a bit of attention- it was slightly mouldy in places and the bath panel needed attention. However, I have no doubt that these things will be fixed. The jacuzzi was fantastic- it was very welcome after long days walking around Rome. Breakfast was served on the upper floor terrace area and was always plentiful and appetising. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would also jump at the chance to go back. Amazing.

My husband and I stayed for four nights during our recent trip to Rome. We had a beautiful and spacious room, well decorated and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly but discrete and non-intrusive, but with many recommendations for fabulous local eateries if asked. The rooftop views are lovely and I'll genuinely miss eating my breakfast looking over the Roman roof line.
The hotel is tucked away on an old cobble stoned lane and easily missed. Don't be deceived by the outside (this comment goes for ALL the places in this area) - by law they are not able to adjust the outside/add signage etc - therefore everywhere looks very 'ancient' - however, the inside is beautiful, clean and welcoming.
During the one occasion that we had a problem (the lights in the hallway of our room blew and blew the lights in the bathroom) - help was on hand in minutes and dealt with quickly.
Because it is tucked away, the hotel is quiet and comfortable but you are less than 5 mins walk from the Metro (which is fabulous, clean, easy to navigate and cheap) and metres away from fabulously authentic Roman restaurants. You are 10mins walk from the Colosseum, 20mins walk from the Termini station, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and 20mins Metro ride from the Vatican. We took ages deciding which hotel/area to stay in for our four day trip to Rome. We were absolutely not disappointed. A fabulous stay. Thank you so much.

I only stayed a night but wish I'd stayed longer. Gorgeous decor, very friendly and accommodating staff and a good location near the ruins. Don't let the back streets put you off...it's very easy to get to and from day and night. Love the free snacks with afternoon drinks (special thanks to the bar man who helped me choose the delicious cocktail), the roof top terrace, gardens and breathtakingly gorgeous room #402. I liked that during the online booking process I was given other options (eg tours) that I could book at the same time - so efficient if you're busy and not staying long. The staff are very efficient and made the logistics of my stay very very easy.

I never stay at a hotel twice but I'm coming back here when I visit Rome next.

This small hotel, tucked away in an old cobble stone lane a few steps from the Roman Forum, is extremely comfortable and clean and an excellent value. It is very conveniently located to all the major attractions as well as to the metro and the area is very safe. The morning breakfast buffet was incredible, there is an evening snack buffet available, wine and treats are left in guests' rooms to make the stay even more enjoyable, and the staff and service are impecable. Our thanks to everyone for making our stay a highly enjoyable one, especially we want to thank Giada, Ruby, and Valentina for all their terrific service, advice, and assistance. We also appreciated the free ride to the airport in a very comfortable Mercedes! We definitely plan on returning and highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

Thank you to all the positive reviewers of this lovely accommodation. Your comments were accurate and our faith in those comments were rewarded. My wife and I spent three nights of the European leg of our honeymoon in Rome, and stayed in the Inn's garden suite. It is a romantic room with a large and comfortable 4 post bed complete with hanging perimeter curtains. The decor is rich in color and welcoming. The room has direct internal access to a courtyard garden and private outdoor seating.
After a long and exciting day walking all over Rome, it was a pleasure coming back to the seclusion and peace of this hotel. The tranquility is particularly extraordinary given the 2 minutes walk to the Roman Forum, 5-8 minutes walk to the Coliseum, 10 minutes to the Pantheon, and no more than 15-20 minutes walk to the Trevi Fountain.
Hilda (the manager) and Gaida were warm and welcoming hosts who looked to our every need with efficiency and grace. And the staff were very well trained and experienced.
We have no hesitation recommending this small luxury hotel to our family and friends.

Room Tip: You will pay slightly more but we recommend a garden suite which gives you good space...also, the ra...

Small but very Nice hotel, rooms very luxury although small. Situate in the heart of the roman forum. Good selection for breakfast and staffs are very helpful. Easy to walk around. Also not far from the coliseum, has restaurants nearby. Very convenient. To get to taxi is a little complicate as it situated in a small road. But you reach roman forum only in 3 mins, under the hotel you can see a part of the roman forum.
