La Lumiere is just steps from the Spanish Steps! What a great location! The room was very clean, and very comfortable. It had lots of charm but had modern fixtures to keep things comfortable. The elevator was adorable. The breakfast was good and the view from the breakfastroom was gorgeous.

This small hotel, located just a couple of blocks from the Spanish Steps, is a great place to stay in Rome. It's on a small street, so it's quiet. The staff was very helpful with directions, getting cabs, and quickly responding to requests for extra towels, etc. A special shout out to friendly Denise, who serves the breakfast & cleans... More

Location, location, location. My girlfriend and I basically walked everywhere from here. The only time we did not, was when we took a taxi to the Coliseum for the tour. Everywhere else we walked to, from the Vatican across the river, to the Spanish Steps right outside, to Trevi Fountain, to Cul De Sac Restaurant. We were here in early... More

This lovely 10 room hotel is a few minutes walk from Spagna metro station (Line A), just off the Via dei Condotti which is the Rome equivalent of Fifth Avenue. The staff are very helpful and welcoming, giving me advice on local facilities and shops, all the staff are excellent english speakers. I paid on arrival, but be aware of... More

This hotel considerably old, i mean really old, but I guess most of the hotels in Italy are. If you haven't been to Italy before, don't be surprise as it was completely different than any other Asia/Australia hotel you ever imagine, even the city hotel. Even the color of the room still on their era with bright red wall, with... More

Although this 10 room boutique hotel is in some need of updating, the location of the property makes it one not to miss. Located only steps away from Via Condotti and Via del Corso (shopping galore), this hotel is prime for visiting all the sites of Rome. Most major attractions (the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon, Villa Borghese, Vatican, Piazza Navona, Trevino... More

La Lumiere's location can't be beat if you are coming off the subway at Spagna and walking from there, since it's only a few minutes from there down a chic shopping street. The hotel's front desk and breakfast staff were very friendly. The room was small but elegantly appointed with antique wood floors, fabric wallpaper, etc. High quality electric shutters... More

La Lumiere is centrally located at via Condotti and Belsiana, three blocks from the Spanish Steps. The hotel is very well maintained, with a friendly desk staff and a location that can't be beat. The rooms aren't large, but adequate in size, with high frescoed ceilings, lovely moldings and fabric on the walls, all exuding a quiet, subdued elegance. The... More

We chose to stay here upon Hotel Contilia's recommendation, and boy were we glad that we did, as it's conveniently located close to the Spanish steps along the posh street of Via Condotti. The hotel is in the heart of Rome and the staff, especially Paola, was so bubbly and helpful to us as we spent our last night in... More

I visited Rome in June 2004. This little gem was a great price in a convent location. Very close to the Spanish Steps, shopping, cafés etc. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They have a great rooftop deck overlooking the area where they serve breakfast. Quaint with a European ambiance.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
