Great location, great view, great hospitality. Buon Natale! Great family owned and run hotel. Great location to Rome's historical sights and restaurants. If you are in Rome for the palatine, forum and coliseum, this is your place. Go for the 6th floor rooms. Worth the money for the views.

A very welcoming family run hotel. I arrived at midnight exhausted, to be greeted by the owner, Mrs Khan with a smile! The location is excellent right next to the Coliseum and walking distance from the city center. The staff were always willing to advise on how best to plan your day and any trips.

Family of 4 shared a spacious room with a double size bed and two single beds. We could see the Colosseum from our room and were able to walk everywhere we went. The breakfast was excellent and the staff was warm and helpful. We would stay here again!

This was a great choice - family run and near the main sights and close to transportation. Rooms are good size- baths a bit small but worked out fine. A wonderful view from the roof deck of the coliseum lit at night. The biggest surprise was the meals - they were fabulous and really reasonable. We all started meeting in... More

Over 20 years ago as I started consulting for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, my client there (Jeff) suggested that I stay at the Lancelot. Thus I came to know the hotel, the lovely family that put up with my coming and going to distant lands -- always returning to the "home away from home." The... More

Now this hotel was rather good. We were welcomed by a young woman. She was very pleasant, then the three of us were about to step into the lift until we noticed it was tiny! only two people could fit in, so one of us had to go up the stairs with the cases. The rooms were pretty basic, even... 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.
