Good restaurants nearby to eat, would recommend Pizzare which is 2 minutes walk down the road. All main attractions are central and walkable from here... More

A very nice location with grate view from the bar in the roof across Rime, but you will pay for the view! On the whole though it was worth it. Our friends staying at the hotel said the rooms are very nice as well. The art is amazing and it seems a stylish boutique hotel.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
