I came to Rome on business and was booked by my travel agency to stay at another nearby hotel. When my schedule changed and I had to come to Rome a day early, the company hotel wasn’t available that additional first night. I booked into Hotel Lancelot last minute because it was only a block from where I would have... More

This was our home away from home, while in Rome for the week as a couple (although we saw several families). This gem is the perfect place to begin your days in Rome, and wind down for a pre-arranged dinner at the hotel. There are several restaurants nearby for additional dining choices. A breakfast buffet was included. It was a... More

This was the perfect place to stay for a mini break in Rome. The small, charming and very attractive hotel nestling behind the Colisseum was the perfect location and the staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. We booked a room on the 6th floor with a small terrace which had the most stunning views of the Rome skyline... More

Two of us stayed in this hotel in October 2014 before our cruise. The rooms were small and the toilet was very average. The breakfast buffet was nice and the reception staff was courteous.We would have loved if the room had a bigger cupboard and also wish for an elevator.

This hotel is a good place for staying and relaxing. The receptionists are so helpful and kindly. They gave me some useful advices before I came to their hotel and during the time I stayed there. If I go back to Rome, I will choose this hotel again.

I stayed at Hotel Lancelot like so many others because I was attending an FAO conference. It's within easy walking distance to the FAO building and many other sites you must see while in Rome, including the Colosseum. My room was small but had everything I needed including a desk. Although the restaurant was closed, there's lots of nearby eateries... More

This hotel was picked because it was close to the FAO where my husband was working that week. The room was clean and quiet and the free WIFI worked well. The television was clear but small and there was not one English station available. Usually we can access British CNN in Europe. We were told that the stations available varied... More

Staying in Monti

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.
