My wife and I stayed here May 14th for 3 days, I can say that the staff were very helpful on our arrival showing where the main sites around Rome were located and the best form of travel. Our room was very clean and was the one I requested on booking. Breakfast facility was clean and had plenty of food. Metro was 30 second walk away and very cheap and easy to use. Vatican a short walk away as were plenty of restaurants. Colosseum is a must but check opening times first and beware, the queuing system falls flat as soon as the gates open it turns to every one for themselves. queue jump tickets are a good idea unless you want to stand in the sun for a while. This was an excellent trip and cheaper than expected for a city. also take advantage of the taxi service Ancient romance can arrange for hassle free transfers from the airport. Would Recommend to friends and would definately stay there again.
Ps the Cherry ice-cream from the parlor around the corner is the best!!!

My wife, I and older son (40) stayed there in early May. Good basic, clean room and great location and price for Rome. Close to Vatican (1 block) and Metro (2 blocks), plus major transit junction for trams, buses and taxis is on a nearby corner. Our room was on 6th (top) floor) of a condo/apt. The office area was on the 5th floor. Good solid elevator. Breakfast food OK but you are there to get out and see Rome. Got to St Peters Basilca at 7:15 AM on a Friday and walked right in! (through security screening these days)

We had a party of four-two rooms and we had nothing but the greatest service from all the staff. Close to everything at a great price.

Located right by the Vatican on a busy street. Rooms are simple but clean and quirky in an old mansion block. We shared an entrance and a small kitchenette with one other room. Breakfast ans snacks are available from there - you just help yourself. Staff are friendly and helpful. Surrounding area is nice and local - with some good friendly restaurants within 5-10 mins of your door. Great bargain for Rome where it's possible to pay through the nose for average accommodation. Parking as you might expect is a nightmare - we circled the block several times for a spot and gave up in the end. There's a proper car park about 5 mins from the hotel (PIazza dell'IUnita) which is pretty reasonable for the day - about €20.

Room Tip: Higher floor gets you a nice view of Roman rooftops and you're further away from traffic noise

Ancient Romance was a great experience. The staff was very helpful in making reservations for sites and was great in their assistance. The accomodations were excellent. The mattress could have been a little softer but the food was excellent and always available. They even made cappacino for me. Would definely stay there again. The location is excellent. Right at the Vatican walls.
