The Best Western ARS Hotel is a remarkable example of a building designed in the immediate recovery of the early Twentieth Century. The restoration works have involved the use of a villa in the district of Rome called "Montesacro- Garden City", for the realization of a receptive hotel "ARS" The challenging work has allowed us to enhance the original architectural and environmental characteristics. The current building is the result of several layers, which was originally built in the early twenties. The villa has a building complex which is completed with other buildings in the urban area, surrounded by a unique garden. The main building is composed of a ground floor, three upper levels and an attic. In addition, the layout of the volumes is enhanced by small balconies that characterize the different floors. Access to hotel you can either from the main entrance in Via Monte Altissimo that behind the complex in viale Carnaro.

Lovely clean hotel even though located away from the main attractions but easily reached via the metro 10 mins walk away. However, our stay was made so much better by the excellent and most helpful service especially from Antonio and Claudio who went out their way with all the queries we had. Always helpful and at the same time very polite and courteous. Made us feel at home - most grateful.

It's was a shocking experience aircon was broken in scorching heat and the staff refused to do anything for us. We simply didn't sleep because of this the food was good awafal and after being told we didn't have to check out at the usual time of 11am as a result. Ten minutes after this time we had one of the staff ringing our room demanding we get out. My girlfriend must have explained herself three times before I roused from my half sleep to shout at the rude staff member who finally got the memo before charging us overstay fees. Disgraceful hotel.

So, although I was afraid the hotel is not in the center and you need taxi or bus each time you want to go out, I have to say that I feel at home. Yes. The breakfast is fresh and good. I recommend it!

My rating for this hotel is actually 3.5. The hotel is advertised as a 4* which is fair but I’d say not quite there. We had room 108 which was located on the ground floor down two small flights of stairs. The room was lovely for what we needed, but a little on the basic side. A bit more furniture would have been nice (drawers to store things etc), the air con didn’t work, which wasn’t too bad this time of year, but in the summer air con that pumps out hot air wouldn’t have been ideal and the mini fridge didn’t cool, just stayed at room temp. There was a bit of damp on the bathroom wall too which is to be expected based on the size of the bathroom, but generally the bathroom was near spotless. I would’ve liked some liquid had soap too as I find the bar soap to be very drying to use (personal opinion as I suffer from dry skin on my hands). The staff were lovely and very attentive from the moment we walked in, to the moment we checked and the housekeeping lady was no different. The reception staff also allowed us to leave the keys for the day while we visited the city as they do not use card keys, and the chains are like mini paperweights. We had breakfast included too within the cost, which again was very basic, just standard continental, but had everything you need to start the day. Overall the room was very clean, staff were great and the stay was nice. The hotel was also a short walk from Conca d’Oro metro station, which made getting around so much easier, but a decent pair of walking shoes is a must as the area is very hilly (so much so we opted for lime scooters to get us up most days). If you’re looking for a nice little hotel for a few days away, I would definitely recommend, the area looked like it had a couple of nice local bars too and there is a small supermarket outside the metro station which is handy for picking up a few Italian snacks for the day ahead.

The hotel has good sanitising measures in place. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. Nice bar and communal areas. Had to book a timeslot for breakfast as has only a small restaurant but a decent continental breakfast provided. Close to reasonably priced minimarkets/bakeries/bistros/pharmacies. Close to metro/bus stop into centre of Rome. Bit noisy at night with traffic. Bins overflowing and smelly on the streets outside which was a shame.

Hotel staff lovely and sorted us out quickly when the holiday company cancelled our hotel and return transfer. However it was warm (for a brit) but we couldnt work the air con so we had to open windows which meant lots of midges or fleas or something came in. We were ground floor right next to a hedge so no view (room 107). We all got bitten, my 7 year old especially bad. Breakfast was amazing, best bit really. No English TV channels or subtitles which is a pain when you have a young child . The area around the hotel is pleasant but dirty, rubbish overflowing and quite smelly. Hotel was a walk to train but you can get a 3 day pass for the metro for €18 per adult. Steps down were hard work, avoid if not able.

We stayed here for a week. The hotel itself is basic and in desperate need of an overhaul. I tried to run a bath but the water came out of the shower head and bath tap simultaneously and the water didn’t stay in the bath. I reported it and the maintenance man tried to glue a bit rubber on the plug, but came off once I tried to run another bath. The plug in the sink constantly jammed closed. The windows didn’t seal well so was very cold and noisy. There was only one English TV channel (which was News) so not great for a lengthy stay. The staff however are extremely happy and accommodating. This hotel is near the bus stops and the metro line for transport in and out of the city but it’s a good 25 minutes on the bus. If your looking for a cheap hotel, you have to take into account the time and money spend going back and forth. However the local coffee shops and eateries etc and amazing as they’re not used to tourist so you can experience the real Italy at real prices. Perfect for me and my husband but not so great for many others. Remember to add in tourist tax (€6 per person per night) then an additional €60 for a taxi back to Ciampino Airport.

Hotel ok, staff lovely, however was too far away for us from the centre of Rome. When we took into consideration what our friends paid to be more central in rome was really the same as we paid for taxis to get home later in the evening. Breakfast was fine and room very clean. Very difficult to find hotel and area not attractive with a lot of bins in street.

Worth the No 90 bus trip from termini, or use metro nearby, to get a seat!, but with a walk up / down some vertiginous steps! - attentive staff, quiet rooms, great choice of items at breakfast with late fining time- will be back

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a short break to Italy. The hotel is ideally located a 20 minute bus ride from the centre of Rome. Very friendly and helpful staff, who gave excellent information regarding cost of bus/tram/metro tickets and where to buy them, together with recommendations of local restaurants. Continental buffet breakfast was well presented with good selection. Whilst the hotel is located a distance from the central city tickets for can be purchased for 12.50euros which last 48 hours and cover all methods of public transport.
