We stayed early April, with wisteria blooming and silky breezes blowing down lovely via Margutta. Hard to believe you are 5 minutes from the hordes on the Spanish Steps. This hotel is a treat if you are looking for a sleek, modern retreat after the Baroque excesses of Rome. Ferdinando was our fantastic concierge, who recommended and made reservations at... More

A beautifully designed hotel in a historic building, featuring some fascinating artwork. We loved the reception desk 'pods' and the distinctive colour schemes for each floor. Great location, in quiet historic cobbled backstreet, but very close to major attractions, and many restaurants, museums and art galleries. Staff very helpful, all speak perfect English. Amazing breakfasts, good coffee. Rooms tastefully decorated... More

The location of the hotel is central & ideal for exploring Rome. The rooms are a nice size, reasonably well laid out & sufficiently large. The shower is poor. Too low, not adjustable & with a silly shower head. Simply changing the shower head & fittings would fix this! The rooms have highly polished wooden floors which they then lay... More

I stayed here for a work trip. I thought the location was absolutely perfect - near the Spanish Steps and Metro station for easy access around all of Rome. The area felt classy and safer than other parts of Rome. I wasnt a massive fan of the modern bright decor (namely the garish corridors) but my room was clean and... More

Spent a nice couple of days at the hotel. The breakfast was phenomenal! Absolutely phenomenal! Great shopping all around although the stores are very high end. Each floor was a different colour and the kids found that very interesting. Very clean place. You have to pay for TV channels. Lots of show pieces and sculptures all around the hotel so... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend in Rome this January and he picked Hotel Art for us. I love the entrance with the stone and lights. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. We were on the green floor (I imagine each floor has a different color theme) and our room was very nice and clean. There is... More

We recently stayed two nights at the Hotel Art as we had seen it on a previous visit and thought it was different from the typical Rome hotel. It was different, much to our chagrin, but we found that out too late. The Positives: The hotel is conveniently located near the Spagna Metro stop and, of course, the Spanish Steps... More

Dear Guest, We are very sorry for your unpleasant experience at our hotel. About all we are sorry to read that staff of reception was unkind and unhelpful. Normally we receive very good comments from our clients and we really don't know why it happened but for sure we have already advised and reproached our staff . About taxi unfortunately... More

Hotel Art by the Spanish steps is a nice choice for a centric hotel in the centre of Rome. We enjoyed a lot our stay at this hotel. The cool style of hotel, the smart design of colours of floors, the minimalist details made our stay more comfortable. When we go out from hotel, the art was on the air... More

If you just want a base and don't plan to spend long in the hotel, this hotel is fine but the staff (particularly the reception) are all very sullen and unhelpful. In fact, I'd go as far as to say incompetent as they failed to recommend more than one restaurant and forgot to order our cab to the station. The... More

I just returned from a 4 night stay at Hotel Art. Everything was perfect...the room was a comfortable size and the staff was able to bring up a rollaway bed for my daughter who is studying in Rome this semester. The sheets were linen! Everything was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in... More
