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.

I had a lovely stay at Hotel Forum. It's a very charming hotel with a classic Italian feel. Front desk staff are friendly, my room was very clean and had a nice view overlooking part of the Forum and the street below. It was amazing to walk out of the hotel and see the forum! Monti is a wonderful neighborhood with plenty of good restaurants and shops. La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali, next door, is excellent along with Alle Carrete for pizza. The hotel breakfast was fine and the servers were very friendly, eating on the rooftop was so nice. The only negative was that I go to bed early and stayed on the 4th floor. I could hear the tables and chairs being moved around after dinner on the floor above. This was not a major problem and didn't last very long each night. Overall, an excellent stay in a perfect location!

“ Avoid the hotel - staff is inadequate
Jun 22 2021
The staff of the hotel is nowhere near the 4-star hotel. The reception is always not knowing what to do. They have all information for you on paper and they keep it really easy to be taken from...
The staff of the hotel is nowhere near the 4-star hotel. The reception is always not knowing what to do. They have all information for you on paper and they keep it really easy to be taken from anyone just passing the streets. Your personal info is not protected at all. The rooms where OK, but the cleanliness was poor. The hotel is on a perfect location and that's the only positive we found. The restaurant is super overpriced and the food quality was terrible. We had to go out to have a proper meal after we dined there.
The room was occupied with another guests just before our arrival, so there was no period of disinfection before we accommodated.
