“Fantastic view!”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

Enjoy every minute at the hotel.. This is the only hotel having front door facing the great Colosseum.

You should have dinner at the 2nd floor (rooftop) restaurant, it's like you can eat and touch the Colosseum at the same time. For food, try the ice-cream and tiramisu cake, it's brilliant!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with window facing to Colosseum

Amazing location, best hotel room we've ever stayed in. Colosseum right in front of our room. Some nice features and a big bathroom. Friendly staff, and very unique rooftop restaurant overlooking te colosseum. The one and only downfall is on the nights we stayed Fri, Sat, Sun it was very very LOUD in the cafe, come restaurant, come bar downstairs until 2am. It may however be different the rest of the week. Minor things like poor lighting and broken shower fittings also need to be fixed. But overall fantastic, just stay out till late!

Brilliant , we loved this hotel as its location was amazing best in town where we could open up the windows in the mornings and view the Colosseum .The cafe downstairs was great for meals and we never heard any noise. We were well looked after and the staff let us store bags until rooms ready. Breakfast was a little basic but ok.

Room Tip: Get the rooms with the views, double glazed , great bathrooms.

The hotel is literally across the road from the Colosseum. We had a great view!

Catia, the hotel manager, is a wonderful host and deserves accolades many times over. She made us feel welcome and was always helpful in recommending or giving directions to attractions.

The Hop On Hop Off bus stop and metro station are only five minutes away, and key tourist sites are all within walking distance.

Our room (for 3 pax) was clean, comfortable, and surprisingly larger than expected. The toilet was very big. Breakfast was a lovely Italian continental spread of Italian meats (salami, prosciutto), cheese, cornetto (croissant), fruits, coffee or tea, juice etc. One serve per person.

The hotel might get a little noisy at night as it is right above a cafe, but the windows keep out the sounds quite adequately. No complaints.

For the location and price, this hotel is an unbeatable deal.

You can see the Colosseum from your bed. We parked our car on the side street and that is where it stayed to whole time in Rome. The turist bus stop is only a two block walk and about the same for the regular bus system. We arrived at 7 am. They stored our luggage behind the counter until our room was ready. There is no elevators, only stairs 3 flights total. I thought the restaurant was a little pricey. The place is a little noisy due to it's central location . I would really recomend this place for a Rome stay.

We stayed one night at Hotel Royal House before catching our cruise the following day. We received a confirmation email from the manager a few days before our arrival which was a kind gesture and a good first impression. The hotel has an unbeatable location just steps away from the Colosseum. We stayed in a triple room which consisted of a queen bed, a pull out couch and a very large bathroom with all the necessities. One thing to note is that I did not see an elevator and were forced to carry large suitcases up to the second floor which was not a problem for us, however if you need the assistance, you may want to ask if there is one available prior to reserving here. There is a wonderful outdoor area on the second floor that overlooks the Colosseum that I would recommend for an evening drink or snack so you do not need to leave the premises. Our room was located on the street side of the hotel (not overlooking the Colosseum) and I was not able to sleep until the bar closed below which is the only downfall of my stay here. Otherwise, I would recommend!

We just returned from our trip to Rome with our 3 children. After reading some reviews on trip advisor we decided to book this hotel. We booked a room with 2 double beds. The room was a very good size and even had a sofa where one of the kids could sleep on.
The location was great and the breakfast too. The possibility to have lunch or dinner on the roof terrace with a view direct to the colosseum was awesome.
Be aware that the area is quite lively with a lot of noise during the evening/night. The rooms are above a bar/restaurant and especially saturday night, there was a lot of noise.
