We just came back from Rome where we stayed 1 week in this marvelous boutique art hotel. Everything was well organised at the highest standarts. E-mail questions after booking were answered promptly and professionally, the airport pick-up and back were perfectly on time (although our flight was delayed). Arriving at the hotel, the receptionists stood up from their desks and... More

Just returned from Rome after a 3 night stay and the hotel is fantastic. The check in experience is great and was offered a complimentary drink on arrival. The staff are very welcoming and we were unexpectedly provided with an upgrade as well. The decor is very stylish and the hotel bed was so comfy that I struggled to get... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in April 2015. Even arriving late at night we were greeted and given a glass of Prosecco and the warmest of welcomes. Nothing was too much trouble - but actually we didn't really need to ask for anything as it was just perfect. The staff were impeccable but not intrusive at all. The hotel... More

It was a lovely hotel but the noise from enighbours baffled me. We could even hear what they were saying next door. Surely a five star hotel should have sound proof walls or at least something to not be able to listen to neighbors conversation? Other than that, it was OK.

We stayed for five days and enjoyed the stay. The room was on the top floor and was really nice and quiet. The staff was really helpful to organise anything from restaurants to tour guides. Only negative was maybe the breakfast. Choice of bread was minimal, fruits available were not very nice. Pineapple was hard not very sweet, oranges were... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
