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.

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.

Stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting Rome. A nice hotel, some way from the city centre, so used the Metro to reach it. Very clean hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. A bit of a walk from the nearest Metro, so probably unsuitable for some people. However, still an enjoyable stay.
