5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I stayed at the Hotel De Monti for 4 nights in June of 2013. I was absolutely pleased with everything. The staff is very friendly. The location is great and I loved the neighborhood with plenty of nice restaurants. It was very nice to have coffee and a light breakfast delivered right to your room--a great start to our day. When and if I ever have the chance to return to Rome, I will definitely come back to Hotel De Monti. Loved it.

Wow, what a wonderful review!!!! Thank you very much!!!

Let us though remind everyone that we are still at the third floor of an ancient building not provided with a lift and that our Hotel has no sign outside. Our website is the best solution in order to have the specific directions about how to reach us!

Ciao guys!!!! Till the next time!!!

Upon arriving in Rome my luggage was lost and due to a strike we were unable to file a report before leaving the airport. It was a miserable five hours spent at the airport before leaving. Upon arriving at Hotel de Monti we found a friendly staff member who warmly welcomed us and offered to call about my luggage. He spent a lot of time helping me with my issue which was eventually resolved. He offered great advice about dining out, helped us get out of the city when it was time to move on and checked in later about my luggage. It was the best service I've ever received at a hotel and should I find myself in Rome again I will certainly return to hotel de monti.

My husband and I stayed here on our first stop of our honeymoon. Agree with other sentiments here...Mauro and his staff were friendly and accommodating, breakfast to our room was perfect, hotel is in a great central location. Other than the already mentioned lack of elevator/lift up 3 flights of stairs, nothing to complain about in a city where your time is best spent out, seeing the sights.

Hi there and thank you very much for posting this review!!

You basically said everything about us in few words!!!! But let us remind that our Hotel could be hard to find if it is the first time in Rome, so our website can be the best solution for directions.

Please, when in Rome again come back here, we need such happy people!!!!

This place cost me 130 euro a night. Based on the price and the Tripadvisor ranking (10 out of 1260 hotels in Rome!) I expected something really good. I were seriously disappointed. The place is in a run down old building, on the third floor (4th if you count the North American way), without an elevator. The room was newly renovated and the staff was friendly and helpful, so it would not be fair to call the place terrible. But I still cannot justify that the place cost that much. And I cannot explain how it came to be rated 10th in Rome. We have been to five other hotels in this trip that we chose based on Tripadvisor rankings. In all cases, the ranking made at least some sense. In this case, it really did not.

Dear guest,

we first of all would like to thank you for posting this review, sharing your experience in our Hotel.

We hope that anyone is reading, will understand that we are not a luxury Hotel, nor a resort and fortunately, we wrote EVERYWHERE our characteristics (3rd floor without elevator, very ancient building, no sign outside). Though, we still have people using TripAdvisor, that does not know all these things...

What lets us be so proud of our job, is mostly the fact that we understand the difference between being treacted as a tourist, or being treacted as a normal person enjoying the most beautiful city in the world. When we explain the map of Rome in our reception (and we do that to every single guest) you will get the way how to skip the big monuments lines, avoid the touristic traps, even how to walk, what to avoid, how, where and when to eat good (that it seems to be a joke, but in Rome is very easy to fall in a bad service quality/pricing and if you do not live in Rome, who better than us could recognize that???)....this is our focus. Otherwise, we were famous for the luxury service of our rooms, that we would still like to remind that are bigger than the Roman standard, all have private bathroom with shower, A/C, telephone, TV, hairdryer, double glassed windows, comfy beds and a private safe....

About the price...July is one of the highest season in Rome....otherwise there would not exist a low and a high season....

We anyway hope you could come back a day, in order to let us show you how we really mean to enjoy Rome.

Best regards.

We stayed here after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Having said that you need to read the reviews, not just accept the great position of the hotel in the rankings.

The hotel is great for what it is. But it is what it is! Read the reviews!

The room is three stories up (stairs only). The stairs can get tiring at the end of a long day walking. The rooms are basic but very clean (the cleanest we experienced in Rome). Not a problem if you are ok physically.

There aren’t any real hotel amenities (its small) but a basic breakfast is provided.

Another great thing is the dry cleaners near by on Va Cavour that charged $7 for a bag full of washing.

The great monuments around the city are in walking distance (if you are of a normal healthy condition) . If we came back to Rome we would definitely stay here again.

Take notice of the Hotel door photo as that will help when tying to find the hotel.

Thank you so much, especially for posting the photos of our door, we are sure they will be very very helpful for the other guests!!! Also, we remind everyone that on our website there all the specific directions about how to reach us.

It is true, we always repeat (and we will never be tired enough to repeat it) that we are NOT a luxury 5 stars Hotel, but we are so proud of the job we do, especially when (you are the proof!!) we arrive to our guests' satisfaction! Our service of course includes the room and all it may concern, but we really think that if a person travels to Rome is to enjoy the City and we never leave a single guest of ours, without our directions to enjoy the Eternal City at the best!!!

Next time in Rome, we will be more than glad to surprising you again!!!

Rooms were clean and adequate, tje staff were very friendly and went out of their way to give us tourist information. Its also an easy walk from termini train station (10-15 mins) and the metro (less than 10 mins). As some of the tripadvisor reviews indicate there are no stairs so if you have big bags you may need some help getting them up to the 4th floor. We had no problem with hand luggage though.
only other thing was there is no kitchen/canteen so breakfast is served in your room at a time of your choosing- we didn't mind this at all!

All in all highly recommended.

Thank you very much for the review!!

Our location is one of our strenght, because within 30 minutes walking, you can reach even the furthest highlights in Rome! Also, our district (Monti) is one of the best in order to taste the real italian and roman cuisine or just for a relaxing glass of wine in our characteristic wineries!

The rooms are at the third floor of an ancient building not provided with a lift, so we do not suggest outr Hotel to all those people that cannot afford too much steps...but in case you can, enjoy our "homemade" service with the explanation of the City through our map!!!

We look forward to meeting you again!!

Picked based on Tripadvisor, like all other hotels on this trip. The TA ranking is very high (10 out of 1263), so I expected something very ice. Was a little disappointed. The place has been recently renovated and is clean. Good location for Colosseo/Forum. Nice staff. But the building is old and decaying, has a dirty staircase and no elevator (3rd floor). Breakfast in room (no common breakfast room), quality/quantity just OK. The room is relatively small. Bathroom very small, with a quirky foldable door which it took us a while to master. Nowhere to hang towels. Tiny shower. Nevertheless, all is clean and renovated, so it was not a hardship situation... Just found the extravagantly high TA rating quite inappropriate.

Room Tip: Ask for a photo of the room. Ours did not look like the photos on Tripadvisor.

Hello and thank you for sharing your experience in our Hotel.

Fortunately, we repeat in every part of the web concerning us, that we are at the third floor of an ANCIENT BUILDING NOT PROVIDED WITH A LIFT, so our guests know that, BEFORE to reserve, without coming here with bad surprises.

Our rooms are all 17 meters squared and for the Roman/Historical centre standard, are even bigger. Anyone is reading, be ready to these sizes whene in a Roman Hotel situated in the historical centre.

Unfortuntately, we do not live the rooms and we cannot know if something is wrong or not. Of course there is a house keeping and when she notices something we immediately fix it up. Most of our guests, kindly let us know the problems sometimes could happen in the room and in that case, we solve it in less than 10 minutes when possible. It is very important for us that when something is wrong, the person that sleeps in the room lets us know that, otherwise you do not give us a chance to resolve a problem that, we repeat, it is quite normal that it could happen.

All in all, thank you very much and we wish you all the best.
