About the location
Rome – the Eternal City – is often said to be the world’s greatest open-air museum, boasting hundreds of historic sights around every corner and in every square. There’s so much to see and do that you’d need a month to take it all in, but a week or less is enough to give you a taste of Italy’s incredible capital.
With more than 3,000 years under its belt, Rome has long been one of the world’s leading centres of culture. There are masterpieces like the Sistine Chapel,
numerous wine-fuelled feasts to partake in, and a raft of iconic sights, including the world’s largest amphitheatre – the Colosseum.
Best of all, the majority of Rome’s attractions are within walking distance of each other, so you’ll be able to soak up the Roman way of life as you walk to the Pantheon
or Trevi Fountain
. Maybe you’ll discover a hidden church with beautiful frescoes or a secret trattoria serving excellent wine from the Lazio
hills. (See our small-group food tour
.) That’s when the phrase ‘when in Rome’ really comes in handy...
The hotel is 50 minutes transfer from Fiumicino airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

We stayed here for 1 night at the end our trip to Italy. I really wish we had more time and will definitely return. The room was very beautifully decorated and we had a very nice view of a small piece of the Forum. After a ferry and train from Positano in late August, most important was very good air conditioning and a nice shower. We picked the hotel for a couple reasons. Nice views when we didn't have time for real sightseeing, a roof top lounge for cocktails at sunset, and a nice dinner onsite.
I travel a lot and what can distinguish a hotel for me is not just a seamless stay, but how they handle problems. We had picked the hotel largely because we wanted to watch the sunset from the rooftop lounge before our dinner at the hotel. We like the restaurant a lot, but honestly it is Rome so there are a lot of great restaurants with views. So it was the ability to do all of this at 1 place on our last night. Well, turned out that there was a birthday party with a bunch of 18 or so year olds scheduled. So when my husband went up to get our seats, they said there would be no room closer to sunset. I was very disappointing, because it wasn't looking like my vision of our last night was panning out. The gentleman at the front desk called up and made it happen. We sat in a little odd area with no view, but the view was a few steps away. They made it happen for us and we were extremely appreciative. The cocktails and service were fantastic.
We didn't have breakfast as we left for the airport around 6am. We very much enjoyed our dinner, which I reviewed separately.
