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

A nice room and very accommodating staff. Walter at reception was very helpful. This hotel is in a very quiet side of Ancient Rome. The Arc di Giani is next door which makes explaining it's location to taxi drivers easy. Kitchenette a bonus when travelling with children. Bathroom was clean and user friendly. Our bed was a king size and... More

When I first walked into my room, I was shocked, we had a separate living area with a kitchenette, a huge double bedroom and a large bathroom. The rooms were basic but the sheer size, for the price, was brilliant. This would be great for group or family holidays as the sofa in the living room pulled out to make... More

The location is perfect for visiting the sites and Trastevere is a short walk away. The Hotel is in a quiet area so no noisy traffic. The Colosseum is very close. Our apartment was huge compared to other hotels we visited and the bathroom was big and modern. If you are driving there yourself,the entrance is difficult to find,you have... More

Brief 3 day visit to Rome to tour the sites. Beautiful weather and a perfectly positioned hotel - we walked everywhere. The Colosseum is just around the corner and the restaurant area Trastavere is just over the bridge. We had a 4 person apartment for the three of us with free Wifi and a buffet breakfast included.

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.
