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.

My darling wife, master planner of our trip, decreed that for our time in Rome we should spend a couple of days down in the ancient part of the city, then move uptown for a few days. A stroke of genius - especially given that she selected the Palazzo al Velabro. Our suite was generous in size, immaculately clean, and... More

I highly recommend this hotel for its location. It is so close to many important sites and it an easy stroll to Trastevere. If you decide to stay, be sure to insist on a renovated room and bath. We, unfortunately, weren't aware of this having received a very favorable recommendation from friends. Our room was worn and shabby. The bathroom... More

Ideal location away from hustle and bustle but easy walking distance to major sights and bars/restaurants. Beautiful view from balcony of ancient monuments/ruins. Welcoming, helpful staff, nothing too much trouble and always smiling. Rooms clean, spacious and comfortable. All in working order. Breakfast basic but did the job. Great ambience at nearby bar, again , really friendly. Loved it!

Easy to find. Reception area very smart and modern. We (2 adults 2 children) were assigned a room without a view of the forum and one yet to be modernised. With only 1 day and night to explore Rome this was a real disappointment. But I should have requested a better room at the time of booking so my own... More

WE visited Rome for the first time with our two children aged 10 and 8 during October half term. The Velabro was just perfect - a great location menaing we could walk everywhere, with views from our rooms to Roman antiquities - perfect! We had a 1 bedroom family apartment - it was a great size with separate living room/diner... More

Here is the good and the bad in a nutshell: The GOOD: In general the location is fantastic if you are there for sightseeing. It is a short 15 minute walk to the subway, Colusieum, and Roman ruins of the Forum. History is all around you. Also just a 5 minute walk to cross the river into a bonanza of... More

For someone who spent A LOT of time perusing hotels in Europe looking for well priced, good sized rooms, I was happy to find Palazzo al Velabro. We spent two nights in the hotel/apartment whilst we were visiting the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, Circus Maximus, Isola Tiberina, Trastavere district, Altar of the Fatherland and so on. For these locations,... More

We stayed here for 6 nights recently and found it was a perfect base for exploring Rome. We had a one bedroom room and while it was a little run down (worn carpets, shower over the bath, walls looking a bit dirty where peoples bags have bumped them ext) we had nothing to complain about. We enjoyed having a little... More

Staying in Aventine

Neighborhood Profile
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.
