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 have just returned from a lovely two night stay at Hotel Forum. Staff could not have been more welcoming, even in these tense COVID times. Service was excellent, restaurant suggestions were great. And, the place looked better than ever - on this occasion I spent more time than ever in the foyer which is a beautifully designed and furnished space - all dark woods, Murano lamps and Persian carpets. Definitely my favorite Rome hotel. And, thank you Hotel Forum for allowing us bring our little dog!

We visited Rome last year from 31st March to 3rd April. We stayed at the Hotel Forum. When we booked in reception we were greeted with opulent elegance. Decorations were ornate, velvet, sumptuous. The reception staff were somewhat aloof and did not seem to want to engage in conversation but the hotel was great. The lift was small and would struggle to carry many people, we often had to wait for the next one. The views across the forum were amazing. We enjoyed a fabulous buffet breakfast, in the rooftop restaurant, watching sparrows hopping in under the canopy, overlooking panoramic views whilst enjoying fruit, pastries and coffee. The cooked breakfast option was limited but we were in Italy and wanted to enjoy the full experience. The waitresses at breakfast were lovely. We did not eat there in the evening as it was somewhat expensive and wanted to try local restaurants within walking distance. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable and we would definitely recommend and return.
