“Perfect boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My husband and I were at the Inn for three nights, and it was a perfect way to start our trip. We were upgraded to a suite, which was beautiful, with a large bathroom and lovely seating area. The hotel is on a very secluded, small street, so even thought our room faced the street it was very quiet. And the location is great, near the Colosseum, but we never felt like we were in a touristy area. Silvia, the manager and concierge, was incredibly helpful both before our stay (making restaurant recommendations/reservations and arranging a private tour guide) and while we were there. Breakfast in the morning outside on the top floor was a both beautiful and delicious!

My mother, sister and I spent 3 days in the Garden Suite at the Inn. It was fabulous with a walk out garden and plenty of room for the 3 of us to share the suite. The location was perfect to enable us to walk to all the sites in Rome. The hotel staff was very friendly and willing to make whatever recommendations we needed to help us enjoy our stay in Rome,

We spent one night here at the end of a recent trip to Italy, and I only wish we could have stayed for longer. This is such a beautiful property! The rooms are amazing (we were in Room 204, which was huge, had a super comfortable bed and had really nice toiletries!!), the rooftop terrace where breakfast is served has breathtaking views of the city, and the service was excellent. The inn is in a fantastic location for exploring Rome, very close to the forum, the colosseum, and within easy walking distance of the Trevi fountain, Spanish steps and all the other must-see sights. The staff are really helpful,and they will arrange a car to pick you up at the airport or drop you off for a flat rate of 55 euro which is good value.
I cant wait to go back!!

We stayed at this hotel and chose it after reading so many good reviews. We arrived at night, it was raining. Silvia welcomed us and she said we were upgraded to the highest floor. The room was beautiful, decorated perfectly. It faced a small garden located on the same floor. Silvia recommended restaurants to go as we arrived late and did not know the area. Her recommendations were perfect. We appreciated it as we returned to those places every night during our stay.
The breakfast area was also beautiful, the service great. The ambience was very relaxing and inviting to stay there to relax in the afternoons, when they offered cocktails and snacks.
The hotel was located close to most touristic areas to visit in Rome.
I will definitely recommend this place if you visit Rome.
Note that the hotel is located on a small street and does not have a very visible sign on a rainy day.

My sister and I, along with two of our sons, stayed in Rooms 401 and 402 on the 4th floor for two nights in Rome. Even though we arrived in the early morning, one of our rooms was ready, so we were able to check in and freshen up before starting our day. Since we had the two rooms leading out to the garden, it was reserved for only us to use while there. The area was beautiful, quiet, and added so much more space to the already spacious rooms we had.
We actually ate our breakfast in the garden area, rather than the terrace. The breakfast each day was excellent, with everything from fresh fruit, pastries, cheese, and a variety of warm/cold dishes.
The staff was absolutely wonderful and the extra touches (fruit platter on our first night, etc.) was very special. Every employee we encountered had a smile on his/her face and was very attentive to the guests.
It's location is excellent, as it is extremely quiet and yet very close to numerous tourist sites, as well as the Roma Termini.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone. It was a wonderful way to start our vacation in Italy, and my 10 year old son loved his first time in Rome.

Room Tip: The 4th floor garden rooms are absolutely the best!!

This was our second stay at the Inn at Roman Forum.
Our Room 203 was fabulous, very quiet, facing the small courtyard.
The breakfast is served on the  4th floor  on a terrace with an  amazing view of the Roman Forum. Very high quality food, as you will find fresh Fruits, Salami, Muffins, Cheese and homemade omelets. There is also the possibility to have eggs on request scrambled, fried etc.
All Staff is really hard-working and professional, they are always very friendly.
I think it is a special place in Rome, for us will be the only choice for our next stay!
Thank you very much to Sylvia for making our stay unforgettable.
We will be back.
