Thank you for the wonderful review you wrote for Hotel Forte. Just as you wrote what distinguishes our hotel from all the other hotels in Rome is the extraordinary location, attention to detail and furnishing our amazing staff, thanks to the expertise acquired over the years is able to satisfy all demands of our guests.

I hope that when you return to the eternal city will still be our guest, we will be honored to offer you our services again.

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.

Room Tip: ask for a room far from reception desk and breakfast room

Dear guest

Thank you very much for the review you wrote about Hotel Forte . Our location is special and all our guests fall in love with Margutta , dubbed Street Artists' was chosen because over the centuries as home to all the artists who wanted to stay in the Eternal City in fact still twice a year In Via Margutta there is a wonderful exhibitions called " the hundred painters Margutta " , you can read more details in our official website. Unfortunately, as you've written some of our rooms are not very large, but all are meticulous in detail and all are decorated in a very warm and welcoming. Our wifi is not free because we have created a very high-speed internet which of course costs more than a conventional network. But I hope you'll come back soon and visit us, we will try to give you an even better service .

We loved this charming little hotel for our 2 night stay. Very close to the Metro which is right near the Spanish Steps. Also within walking distance to many of Rome's attractions. The staff were friendly and welcoming.

We would stay there again.

Dear Guest

Thank you very much for the wonderful review you wrote about HOTEL FORTE. The staff of Hotel Forte was selected primarily based on their ability to engage with our guests a relationship of friendship and trust, and we are so happy that you have you got on well with all of us. The location of Hotel Forte is really beautiful, in the heart of Rome, but in a small side street very quiet and romantic, I invite you to go look at the position of Margutta on the detailed map in our official website. Our wifi is not free because we have tried to create for our guests a high-speed network that obviously has much higher costs compared to a conventional wifi network, however I thank you for the suggestion. I hope to have you again as our guest.

We stayed at Hotel Forte for 4 nights and we loved it. The staff was wonderful to my parents - my mother was recovering for a broken hip. Close to everything and very good breakfast - especially the cappuccinos. Will surely be back and will recommend it to friends and family.

Stayed there for 3 nights in mid-Nov. Location is excellent. Close to Spanish Steps, Spagna metro stop and shopping district. We walked to Trevi Fountain in one early morning. Took us 15 minutes only. We also walked around at night and felt pretty safe. We noticed that there were policemen on-duty around the Spanish Steps area all the time. It's good for tourists. Definitely will stay there again if we visit Rome again.

Room Tip: We asked for a room away from the breakfast area. It's pretty quite. Our room has a nice view on...

Stayed at the hotel beginning of December. It's in a beautiful quiet little street and five minutes to the Spanish Steps. Room was lovely and spotlessly clean as well as the bathroom with a really good shower. It was my birthday while we were there and the hotel surprised me with a bottle of wine and some snacks which I found very touching and much appreciated. Very friendly staff and plenty of choice for breakfast. Would stay again and would recommend to anyone.
