The staff were very friendly and helpfull and the breakfast was very good. The room we had (350) was very small and located just off the stairs and was very noisy when people would come up the stairs late at night when we were trying to sleep.It is very close to shopping and restaurants and the spanish steps and subway.

Hotel Forte is on the charming Via Margutta, just a stone's throw from the Spanish Steps and very convenient from the Piazza di Spagna Metro, which makes the transfer from Fiumicino by public transport very straightforward (4euros one way by bus, 1.50 euro each metro journey). Our room overlooked the street, but noise was not a problem. The bed was... More

The hotel was perfectly situated one block from the Spanish Steps and Metro. Lovely room and bath. Great rates for the area. Nice breakfast with hot and cold food. Only complaint is iffy wifi. The room was a tad small, but completely acceptable for the value.

A comfortable and friendly place in the heart of Rome. Loved the breakfasts - especially the espresso - from friendly attentive staff. The rooms were clean but the only negative is their size. Snug would be one way of describing them but the shower is simply tiny and not suitable for larger frames. Overall a good place to stay.

Room was much smaller than we thought, but the staff told us that it was one of the largest room. WI-fi is 5 euros per day and it doesn’t work in all places. Breakfast is basic and the room is very hot and small. Centrally located, can walk to everything.
