“Very nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Hotel is modern and very nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We'd upgraded to larger sized room, which was very generous in size. Breakfast was very good. Very nice restaurant in hotel with open air views (and hotel gives various discounts making it attractive price-wise as well). Location is somewhat remote by ancient ruins.

Tips: (1) While it's in the ancient area, it's about a 25 min walk to the Colosseum. (2) We took two "small group" tours thru Dark Rome - an Ancient Rome tour which included the lower level of the Colosseum and a tour of the Bourghese Palace and Gardens. Both were excellent and we highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Rooms are affordable clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was included. Friendly and helpful staff. Just a few minutes walk from main attractions. Plus roof terrace bar.

Enjoy your stay!

Like many people on this my husband and I spent a lot of time researching hotels within Rome for our stay. We decided upon Fortyseven Hotel as it was close to where we were getting married (Campidioglio) - did I mention we were getting married while there?! :) I am so glad we chose this hotel as not only was it a great location (within walking distance to all the main sights) but also the staff made our time there all the more special. On arrival we received a complimentary bottle of bubbly as they were aware we were getting married. The rooms are a great size, very clean, fantastic showers, excellent WiFi facilities and the comfiest bed I have slept in, in any hotel. A special thank you goes to Elina who could not have been more helpful and is a real asset to the hotel. She helped with any request we had from wedding questions, to places she recommends locally. We would also like to say thank you to the manager - Adrienne who personally takes time to speak to her guests and for the lovely email we received from her when we returned home. We cannot wait to return to the 'Eternal City' - and when we do, we will be sure to stay at the Fortyseven Hotel again.

A very well presented modern hotel close to many attractions. The staff, service and rooms could not be faulted. The view from the roof bar was stunning and the waiter service excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Having just come back from a few days in Rome stopping at the Forty Seven Preferred Boutique Hotel I just want to tell everyone how great the hotel is.
We arrived early - before booking in time - yet our room was made available. We had a late flight back and were allowed a couple of extra hours in our room at no extra cost which was really appreciated. The staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they had lots of good advice or what to do and where to go.

Room Tip: The lower floor is a little noisy but we both liked the city sound and were that tired it made no di...

My fiancée and I stayed at this boutique hotel in November 2012 and were very pleasantly surprised with our stay there. The staff gave first-rate service and were genuinely helpful; the rooms were well furnished and clean (if a bit dark and not a great view); the steam room is underused and a real treasure after a long day trekking; breakfast is plentiful (though not varied); Wi-Fi is a bonus; located close to the Coliseum and 30 mins walk to Vatican City; and the rooftop restaurant is cosy and a hidden gem (though a little pricey). We even got a 20% discount for a meal then a further 20% on our last night; not to mention a free bottle of prosecco on the first night for our celebration. The hotel was not too busy (though it was out of season) and there was a mix of nationalities and business types.
Given the location and service, we'd definitely come back again!

I'm surprised by all the great reviews of this hotel and would say this is definitely not a luxury hotel as my travel agent said it was. I'll start with the positive- Great Location. The hotel is within walking distance to all the tourist sites and many great restaurants. If location is your number one priority this is your hotel. However, for me a great hotel is part of the travel experience. Second, the woman at the desk that usually helped us gave us good restaurant recommendations. Third, it was clean.
As for the negative, we were not satisfied with the service. The wifi was not working in our room at all. Wifi was very important to us while traveling to say in touch with family at home, research reviews and general info while traveling. We had better wifi in the middle of no where in Tuscany than we did in the center of Rome at this hotel. When we asked to switch rooms they said the only other option was a suite for an additional 50 euros a night (We were there for three nights). We were extremely disappointed and not about to spend an additional several hundred dollars for THEIR problem. They sent someone up to the room to look at the problem. He left and never returned. We never heard anything back and the problem was never solved. Second, attention to detail. My husband and I both at major colds when we arrived....empty tissue box in bathroom and broken trash can. Next, a major inconvenience is you have to go to the "ironing room" downstairs to iron. The rooms do not have their own irons as most hotels. Decor-our room was boring as is the front of the hotel. Again, there are positives and negative, but next time in Rome I would choose something else.

danypre, Sales Manager at Fortyseven Hotel Rome, responded to this review, November 12, 2012
Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review on Hotel Fortyseven, posted on Tripadvisor on November 6, 2012.
Your compliments regarding the great location, and the high-standard of cleanliness were greatly appreciated.
‘As for the negative’ comments are concerned, we would like to give some light on them.
1. Our wifi system is on a complimentary basis and problems on the net are not under our control as you can imagine. This kind disturbance can happen anywhere, anytime and the Hotel itself can have a problem too when this occurs.
2. The additional charge of 50,00 euro for a room change for three nights
does not equal ‘several hundred dollars’, but $190.00.
3. Thank you for the information regarding the trash can. It has been replaced with a better working one.
4. The ‘major inconvenience’ of going to our complimentary ‘ironing room’, should not be considered an inconvenience. Hotel Fortyseven offers our complimentary ironing room service so that our Guests can have at their disposal, a professional iron, spray starch and it is open 24-hours a day, video-monitored in order to insure our Guest’s safety. Ironing in one’s room is not only dangerous for children and the elderly in particular, but all the Guests who are staying at the Hotel. Fortyseven’s anti-fire protection system can be set-off by the ironing steam vapors alone and therefore interfere with the Hotel’s system at large. Safety for our Guests within the Hotel structure is our first concern at all times.
5. Lastly, as far as our décor is concerned, everyone has their own personal tastes that need to be respected, but Hotel Fortyseven is a period piece of modern architecture. No changes can be made on the exterior of the building so as not to ‘disturb’ the original design.
The personally designed furniture, as well as the art deco pieces within the Hotel have been designed and chosen to better blend with the building exterior.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to better describe our property and for having chosen Hotel Fortyseven.
