The hotel itself was not that bad, staff was helpful, location is good and we got upgraded at check in, which was nice. The air con was a bit of a mess but it was winter so we opened up the windows to get a bit of colder air. The real problem was what we found out the first morning.... More

The hotel is very close to the circus maximus, the forum and the colloseum. All of these attractions are within walking distance. We tended to plan our days excursions from the furthest point and then amble back towards the hotel, seeing the sights we had listed on the way. We used taxis which the hotel was able to get for...

we had a good stay in this trendy 4 star hotel in Rome, the location is perfect for visiting Rome all by walking. The hotel is face to face to the Palatine hill, at 5-10 minutes walking distance from forum romano , colosseo and Campidoglio.

Our room was large and very very clean. Check-in was easy and quick. The location is good- very central. You are just across the street from the Palatine Hill ruins complex. You are on the other side though, so it is about a 15-20 minute walk to the entrance. The Metro is also at least a 10 minute walk, but... More

Staying in Aventine

Neighborhood Profile
Aventine
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighborhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.
