Editorial review:

If you want to stay near Rome’s Coliseum but not in a stuffy old fashioned hotel, this may be just your place. This is an extremely well executed designer hotel with a very pleasant earth toned décor marked by bright colorful accents in the artwork and the furniture. The sleeping rooms have a lot of natural light and are quite large. The staff is very attentive and there’s a small gym where you can work off your extra energy or that extra dessert.

Verified Reviews:

  • Pleasant bar area - Parking available at 25 euros per day - A bit pricey
  • Beautifully decorated rooms - Excellent breakfast - Free wi-fi around the hotel
  • High-class hotel - A couple of blocks from the colloseum - Big room - Modern value
  • Meeting rooms - Small fitness room - Tv in bathroom - Groove and jazz music are played in lobby
  • Good restaurants near our hotel - Bed was massive and comfy - Wonderful staff - No pool

        • Piazza's and fountains, churches and interesting architecture sums up Rome for me, very quiet road. Location also very good and hotel was clean. Staff were very attentive, the rooms were just right for we needed and the rooftop terrace was great for relaxing after a day seeing the sights. The breakfast was excellent and the facilities were modern and exceptional.

          Internet useless and expensive, slow food replenishment, more variety in menu.

        • The location was very good, and a little grocery store near by too we bought bottled water, juice and beer, a beautiful modern hotel ideally located within 300 mtrs of the Colosseum &. Reception staff were all friendly and the room was perfectly clean. Bar front office manager giuseppe went above, breakfast was exceptional and the gym had some free weights and a couple of treadmills.

          Overpriced for you get, customer service lacking and internet access not available except for outrageous $25/hour charge.

        • Location easy for walking, just 5 minutes walking from the Coliseum and Palatine Hill also very near to the Basilica San Clemente. The hotel was lovely and and the price, for Rome, was good. Lobby was very modern and staff were great, service was friendly and helpful.

          The area was very quiet and not at all touristy, internet was expensive.

        • Perfect location for the Colosseum and the underground is nearby and very handy. This hotel is amazing, the rates are competitive for the level of accomodation and the lobby has a pleasant bar. Less than a 5 minute walk to the colusseum, the staff are brilliant and the rooms are very clean and relatively quiet. Comfy terry robes made us feel pampered and breakfasts are delicious.

          Friendly and in a good position not too expensive for Rome, not worth the money. Excellent service, slow internet and high ceilings not helping. The pillows were hard, small and food was also overpriced.

          Other than the price for such a tiny room, we enjoyed our stay and internet service through TV was dreadfully slow.
