“Wonderful service and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2009

We spent the last week in December at this charming hotel and were delighted with it. The location was excellent and we walked all over Rome or to the Republica Metro which was just a stone's throw away. It felt safe and the staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean and maintained that way all through our stay with thoughtful little touches.

We were charmed when the staff left an unexpected bottle of sparkling wine and some traditional panattoni to celebrate New Year's eve.

It is truly one of the best European hotels that we have stayed at and we recommend it to other travellers as well.

We stayed at the Hotel Artemide as an ‘escape’ from a very poor hotel. So we walked down ‘Via Nazionale’ and this hotel looked the nicest, it was a 4 star so yes you expect more. But I’m happy to say that it didn’t disappoint. The stay was great & the rooms very nice.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2009

I just finished a five night trip to Italy with my girlfriend. We started in Venice for two nights followed by three nights in Rome. I started looking for places to stay 2 months before our trip and after a long decision process decided on the Hotel Artemide based on plenty of favorable reviews, a pretty good rate, and photos that made the hotel look really nice. However, after a fantastic stay in Venice at the Hotel Bucintoro (see my review), coupled with high expectations I was a bit disappointed.

I booked directly through the website for their rate which didn't include breakfast but was essentially the same otherwise as a standard room rate. Breakfast cost 14 euros per person per day, so over a 3 day stay we saved nearly 80 Euros. Our rate was 108 Euro per night.

For starters, the location of the hotel is one of its best attributes. It is literally a 1-2 minute walk to the Republica Metro station and only about an 8 minute walk to Termini. This made it easy to quickly get to many of the city's sights. We could have walked to many places easily, but with temperatures being in the upper 40s felt we might as well use our 3 day unlimited use metro pass (which came with the Roma pass and I definitely recommend buying it).
Being on Via Nazionale was good for reasons mentioned above, but also there were quite a few restaurants nearby if you knew where to look. Gallina Bianca and Quadrifoglio were two that we went to based on Eyewitness Rome recommendations and we weren't disappointed. Both were within a 5-10 minute walk. However, as discussed next the street presented some problems.

Upon arrival we were given room 104. I had read in several reviews about the noise levels from the street being high, but decided I would see for myself how bad it was. Upon entering our room I noticed that street noise was very loud and I could easily hear traffic and pedestrian noise. Figuring it wouldn't be too bad at night I decided not to ask to switch rooms quite yet. This was a mistake as the first night resulted in constant tossing and turning and little quality sleep. There was just enough noise from the occasional cars to keep me awake. Also it seemed as if the windows were super thin and did not close properly. The next morning I asked if we could move to a room in the back of the hotel and was told by a helpful Alessandro at the front desk that this wasn't a problem. We packed our things and they moved us to room 107 on the back of the hotel. Upon returning in the afternoon to the new room the lack of noise was immediately clear! The room was extremely quiet which made the next two nights sleep better. Unfortuntely the room felt quite hot (the thermostat said 24-25 degrees). I had to frequently open the window to let cool air in but couldn't do so for too long due to seeing a mosquito or two enter at night. So for no noise I got a room that was much too warm.

Aside from that the room was nice although not as large as pictures led me to believe. But it was sufficient. The bathroom had good soaps and shampoo. The shower in our first room leaked tons of water onto the floor but this didn't really occur in the second room. My girlfriend like some previous reviewers noticed that the hair dryer was merely blowing cool air. The complimentary minibar was a nice benefit to grab a snack or drink from after a day of sightseeing.

As far as hotel ammenities go it was nice to get a free glass of sparkling wine at checkin from the bar. I glanced at the menu and was shocked to see such high drink prices though. Also while it was nice to receive 15 minutes free per day of internet access, after having essentially unlimited access at the hotel in Venice, it was annoying to feel rushed to check news and take care of travel logistics. You could pay 12 euro for unlimited use for your stay which is however a pretty good value. Also as others mentioned the only English channel was CNN, and while you're not there to watch TV after 5 days of nonstop sightseeing we wanted to relax one afternoon. There was a good deal for 24 hour access to movies and webtv though which we used.

As mentioned already the staff were very professional, helpful, and fluent in English. They also booked a private car to take us to the airport early in the morning on our final day which cost 40 euro and sure beat the hassle by metro/bus to Ciampino airport.

All in all, my opinion on Hotel Artemide is really mixed. Perhaps my opinions were skewed by the exceptional Venice hotel, but the issues such as street noise, a warm room, and the flooding shower marred my stay. However, the hotels superb location, the professional staff, and the overall niceness of the room made up for these problems. I'd like to think that we just had an unlucky experience and other rooms don't have such a problem with noise/heat as evident by the overwhelming positive reviews. If returning to Rome I'd probably be willing to give the hotel another try as it was quite hard to find a nice hotel at a reasonable price. Hope you found my review helpful and enjoy your trip in Rome as its truly a one of a kind city!

I booked this hotel after seeing it's quite high placing on the Trip Advisor rankings compared to the prices they charged. In other words quite good value for 16th place and lots of 5 out of 5's.
We paid extra for a Superior room and on arrival they upgraded us to a Junior Suite, this was just after lunchtime so it wasnt that a superior room wasn't available. This was very much appreciated as the size of the rooms for a capital city with it's seperate lobby was very spacious. The room was large, the mini bar well stocked for a couple of drinks before you go out and it's free. Breakfast was plentiful and large choice.
Hotel was well placed for the Metro and you can walk to a lot of the sites without even using the Metro. Staff were friendly and helpful by Italian standards as some other places we visited you were made to feel that they couldn't be bothered.
I have travelled to many hotels and would rate this as very good.
Well worth the upgade to Supieror rooms in the hope you may get a Suite.

Clean, efficient, sylish hotel.
Though the public rooms were smaller than I thought they would be from photographs, they are very tastefully decorated and furnished. Comfort and some style. The staff on reception, were always attentive and helpful. Someone there always able to speak in English, Bedrooms again were excellent. Clean,
spacious and tastefully decorated. The huge double bed was
incredibly comfortable and spacious!! We were on the first floor
and also had a small verandah, with table and chairs, though
the view, as one might expect in the centre of the city, was building 'locked'. Breakfast was fine, in a pleasant basement
dining area. Range of choice a bit limited, mainly breads and
cakes, with only bacon and scrambled egg offered as a hot dish.
The restaurant was the hotels only let-down. It lacked character
and ambience, indeed it seemed more like a basic street cafe.
The menu though middle priced, was by no means extensive, and for a vegetarian offered nothing at all.
The hotel is situated in a very convenient position. It took us about twenty minutes to complete a very pleasant walk down to the Colisseum, for instance.
We would definitly use this hotel again.

  • Liked — Spacious bedroom and bed. Very comfortable lounge and bar. Convenient for shopping and walking to historical sights.
  • Disliked — Restaurant lacked atmosphere, more like a basic street cafe. Menu didn't have much choice, with nothing at all for vegetarians.
