We'd never heard of this hotel before, but chose it based on location, reviews from Tripadvisor and pictures we saw. The room was indeed beautifully decorated and surprisingly spacious. The most comfortable bed I ever slept in, walk in closet, big bathroom, separate living room, terrace… Only complaint was the air conditioner, which was controlled by the reception. Even though...

We spent three nights at the first arts hotel in July. I was a little worried that it wasn't one of the many "known" five star hotels in rome. I usually exclusively book through Amex Platinum but I trusted the trip advisor reviews and am so glad that I did!!!! The location was excellent. 2 blocks from the piazza del... More

We stayed there this weekend and couldn't have been more thrilled with our stay! The staff was extremely helpful in everything we requested! Also it is convenient if you have a car because it has a parking right across at the cost of 35euros per day. We stayed in the Junior Suite and loved it. We had booked the Classic... More

If you have ever played the donkey and tail game, you could not stick a pin in a map more central. It's simply close to everything.

Stayed here as a part of a tour of Venice, Florence, and Rome Location Great location. Close to the major sites of Rome. The Piazza de Popolo was a 5 minute walk. Spanish steps, Hadrian's Temple, Trevi Fountain, etc were all within a 15 minute walk. The great part is that it's off on a side street, so it's very... More

This hotel is fairly new but they have a lot to fix to be a truly 5 star hotel. The positives were the room size and decor which were very nice. We had two rooms joined by another door making our rooms essentially into a suite. The rooftop restaurant was beautiful but we didn't eat there. The art work was... More

Starting with the positives: the room was quiet and the bed was comfy. The hotel was well located being close to the Spanish steps and shopping district. The negatives: tired decor with grubby carpets and marked walls. Dodgy breakfast with chocolate mousse as a present from the chef (?), kidney beans (?), instant coffee and toast to break your teeth... More
