Yes, it's a gay hotel - if that's not your thing, then you can go book a boring, tourist haven hotel near the Spanish steps or Trevi fountain. They are welcoming to all people though, which is great because it's so close to many must see sights in Rome. A two minute walk to the Colosseum, out front there's a... More

Nice interior design, perfectly clean, excellent personal receptionist service with good tips for Rome, breakfast available all day in the restaurant below, very central location with excellent side-street dining in front of the building with a historic view of the Colloseum just across the street, in the heart of gay Rome. I cannot think of a better choice in Rome

This hotel is amazing. Literally, everything about it is beautiful. My mum and I stayed in this hotel for a night when we visited Italy in August. We arrived on the 1st and stayed for 1 night before returning to Sorrento to finish our holiday. The hotel was so easy to find, if you find the colosseum (which you will),... More

So I booked this hotel as a complete surprise for our 5 year anniversary! My boyfriend didn't even know we were coming to Rome! I had emailed before arriving, advising it was a special time for us and could we check in any earlier as we landed at about 9 am. I had the most lovely helpful email come back... More

We chose this hotel due to it's proximity to the colosseum and it did not disappoint. We were there within a few minutes. Communication beforehand was easy and when we arrived a little early the room was ready for us already. We found it nice and clean. It was facing the back and not the street and even had a... More

This hotel has an excellent location next to the Colosseum. Rooms are nice but the services are limited. An excellent bang for your buck. The rooms are trendy and nice. Free Wifi. Two gay bars on the bottom floor with indoor/outdoor restaurants.

I'm afraid I cannot share the enthusiastic opinions of other traveler about this property. But let me first start with some clear positives: the location - still probably unlike most visitors I didn't chose this area because of the proximity of the Colosseum but it is just close to my friend's house whom I was visiting. But the location is... More

Great customer service. Modern room but unable to properly connect to the WIFI. A little loud in the late evening due to the bar downstairs but tolerable. The location was perfect for walking between the Vatican and back. Colosseum was next door and the view from the front of the hotel was quite beautiful in the spring. Thank you 2nd... More

Even though we are a same sex couple, we booked this 'gay friendly' hotel completely by accident through Expedia! The hotel was very good value for money and in an excellent location by the Colosseum. We had a lovely view from our window over the Gladiator barracks and the room was really modern, well decorated and had a huge bathroom.... More

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
