We recently stayed for 3 nights for our wedding anniversary and could not have been happier. Great location, easy to walk to most places but just far enough away to be quieter. Amazing design and style. We had a junior suite which was a great space, nice sitting area, really comfy bed. Nice bar and restaurant (we didn't eat dinner... More

We knew I had booked the right hotel in Rome when we entered the lobby. The friendliest and beautiful staff ever welcomed us.

Just a superb hotel - customer service was first class; be it restaurant recommendations or bookings, allowing us to borrow their hotel umbrellas to offering us a complimentary drink on arrival. Attention to detail superb and everyone very friendly. Bedroom very comfortable indeed and very easy to walk to everything from the hotel. Would definitely revisit.

A beautiful few days and generally very impressed. The situation down a small street just 100 yards or so from Popolo is good so access to all areas is no problem. With via del Corso about the same distance the area is buzzing til late evening. For the more discriminating via del Babuino is just little further. Stayed in a... More

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.
