“Terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

It is always a shame that we have to make a review through Trip Adviser because it is becoming increasingly obvious that they are allowing too many negative reviews without checking that the reviewers could be biased/morons/fake and just plain wrong and nasty. Hopefully Trip Adviser can can get back to what they should be,,, which are reviews we can all trust.

Rant over.

Inn at the Forum.
Sixth time in Rome for us Aussies and we thought we were experts. Wrong... we were stupidly caught by the crooked taxi scam. Make sure you check that the magnetic poster on the side of the taxi has a proper taxi number!! A lot of these b...a..srds just use a texter to forge a number. Cost us 18 euros instead of the 12 euros it should have been.

He dropped us at the end of via Ibernesi. It is only a couple of hundred metres long but I still missed the hotel because the numbers on one side go from high to low so you assume the other side will do the same. Wrong.... they go from low to high so that the hotel (number 30) is opposite number 2..... and it's all cobbles.... so your suitcases are going to get a beating.

Asked why they don't have a sign outside we were told that they aren't allowed to. C'mon guys... you're Italian.... how about putting a couple of plants in boxes outside? Or a light... or even just a wee arrow?

There are only nine rooms.

How wonderful is that?

We paid a bit extra and got a superior or Executive or Deluxe. I honestly don't know but the room was terrific and I can't imagine that any of the lesser rooms would be bad.

Yes the rooms are a bit over the top with the style but how good is that if you were stuck in a wee small 4 metre by 4 metre room costing 300 euros?

We tend to stay in 4 and 5 star hotels and complain if the hotels aren't up to standard. We are happy to pay up to 350 euros a night as long as the hotels are worth it.

Was the Inn at the Forum worth it? You bet it was. I (think it was 220 euros for one night and 177 for the other). The breakfast was excellent and made to order as far as eggs were concerned. PS the fried and poached eggs were brilliant.... don't order scrambled eggs.... ruddy awful. The wonderful Russian? waitress was lovely and was so enthusiastic about "everything" that we didn't have the heart to mention the scrambled eggs! I eventually put the leftovers into a paper bag and dumped them in the bog!

The hotel is quite literally 150 metres from a walkway which goes straight to a major part of the Forum and yes... the Forum is actually part of the building and naturally they are very proud of that.

The Wedding Cake is 8 minutes' walk away and you can see it from the quite wonderful breakfast/lounge area. I still don't understand how the hotel seems to be in a tranquil garden setting but in the middle of Rome.... that's Italy for you.

Walking distance to wherever you want to be including a major high rated trip adviser restaurant which is only 200 metres away. The rats were of course fully booked and told us that we should have booked the day before. Well snooks to you... we found another restaurant 800 metres away equally as good..... well... it wasn't but it wasn't touristy and the pizza was excellent.

Could you find a better hotel in Rome?

Possibly; but this is a 4 star hotel which is as good as any classy hotel in Rome without the pretension and the price.....

.... and yes Americans ... they have bellpeople dressed in waistcoats if that is what turns you on.

Brilliant.

PS Unfortunately; and I don't know why but I cannot find any pictures of the room. Take it as read but it was one of the best in our 7 week holiday and that includes some of the best hotels in Europe.

Room Tip: They actually have separate wifi on each floor so you get decent strength.

This was a lovely hotel, situated in the perfect location. Walking distance from everything, but also nice to take a taxi back after a long day. The terrace was beautiful, and the top view was the best part of the hotel. Perfect to eat breakfast overlooking Rome.

The only downside was the lack of wifi in the room, and the one receptionist who never smiled and seemed annoyed. Otherwise, this was a great experience!

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building have wifi, if that is important.

We stayed for 4 nights at the hotel and it was amazing.
The location is perfect (just don't try to reach it by car) you can easily reach places on foot or by subway.
Our room was incredible, the breakfast was flawless and the rooftop was lovely. I am sure I will stay there again!

We are a family of four adults and didn't want to stay in 2 standard hotel rooms. I was delighted to find this lovely apartment which is run by the hotel but is located just across the alley. I was surprised to find it so large. We had full kitchen, laundry, courtyard and a beautiful patio complete with upstairs view of the city. The breakfast was lovely and they serve a complimentary afternoon tea. We used the car service from the airport and couldn't be more pleased. Everything was as expected or better. Thank you for a lovely stay.

You are at the roman forum. Not nearby.
The hotel is a jewel. Perfect.
The staff takes every thing you wish a an order.
The terrace overlooking Piazza Venezia is incredible!.
The garden on top of the city an oasis.
What more can you expect. The breakfast is complete and if they don t have what you want you will get it next day.

Room Tip: If you can afford it ask for rooms at the top.

Great location in a very cool neighborhood (Monti, near the Roman Forum), beautiful room, romantic breakfast on the terrace, fresh tasty food and the most friendly and attentive staff. Absolutely perfect!
Take a taxi from the airport or from the train station, because the hotel is located in a small alley, and it could be tricky to find it.

We started our trip to Italy with a 3 night stay in this gem of a hotel. You are served a welcome drink while you check in and your bags are taken up to your room. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and quick to help out with any of our needs. Breakfast in the morning was excellent and we really enjoyed the terrace space as it was a peaceful start to the day. It was also a nice area to enjoy a drink and free appies in the afternoons.

The location of the hotel is ideal for hitting all the main attractions of Rome. We were able to walk to all the highlights with the exception of the Vatican City which was a 15 euro cab ride away.

If you are looking for a good location, great service and value for money this is your hotel. We would happily stay here again.
