Tucked in between the Arch of Janus and Basilica di San Giorgio in Velabro, this beautiful hotel is easy to miss. Near Foro Romano, the Colosseum and Trastevere. Very comfortable suites with kitchenette, and balcony overlooking lovely gardens. The floor-to-ceiling glass french doors to the balcony added to a luxurious feel. Friendly and helpful staff, and free wifi. Would love... More

Excellent location and excellent place to stay in Rome. Look at Google maps street view to get an idea of the area. You will be very close to many of the attractions of old Rome. The Colliseum is walking distance and so is pretty much everything... Except you might want to bus to the Vatican.

Great location, wonderful staff, lovely 1 bedroom apartment with balcony. I ended up here for a month. Close to the heart of Rome with many attractions closeby. Easy walk to the city. There is within a 5 minute walk 3 local bars and a restaurant, all serve food. On Saturday and Sunday the Farmers Market is at the top of... More

Perfect location right next to the 4th-century Arch of Janus-- convenient both for seeing Rome's sites, and also for meetings at the UN FAO which is just a short walk away. Rooms were very clean and spacious, and the bathrooms were modern, with very good showers. The only thing that was less than good was the fact that housekeeping did... More

I've stated with my family for 4 days. Personnel at the hotel is very friendly, they helped us with all of our requirements. The location is excellent! Walking distance from many attractions. The room we got had everything working, but required some painting. Also the carpets on the corridors needs to be replaced. Nevertheless, is a very good choice.

This apartment has good sized bedroom and a decent living room with kitchenette. Check in was no problem however we did not have anyone to provide orientation to this apartment. That is the reason for 4 stars also the lack of paper towels or kitchen towel (had no clue how to wipe the kitchen mess after we cooked and ate,... More

The hotel is beautiful, quiet, and conveniently located, with friendly staff, decent exercise equipment, and a good breakfast. The 1-bedroom suite we stayed in was large and comfortable, with a small kitchen, nice bathroom, big towels, and a balcony with a table for two. Decently equipped kitchen, though no microwave. A few small minuses: Though they have a hot water... More

We stayed for 13 days in a 2-room ensemble with a small kitchen, a sofa-bed and a king size bed. The staff was always attentive. The location is very central -- a short walk from Trastevere and the good restaurants of the Ghetto, and a 2 bus stops from Piazza Venezia. Nice and big bath towels too! Breakfast was included...

This hotel was right next to the forum so central to all the tourist attractions! And the price was so good considering how central it was, you'd pay double in any other hotel in the same area! The apartment was pretty big, could happily live there if it was a flat! The service was fantastic, we were rescued from our... 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.
