Via Margutta is magical, with enchanting atmospheres and a special charm all its own. As one of the most beautiful streets in Rome, it attracts artists, literati and movie directors. This street used to be lined with warehouses and stables located behind the palazzos of Via del Babuino. These later became artisan shops, painters studios and antique stores (celebrated in the curious Fontana degli Artisti), thus creating the special ambiance that prevails today and welcomes visitors to Via Margutta.

What's more, every year, during the month of October there is the traditional Mostra dei Cento Pittori (Exhibition of One hundred Painters), an art show featuring Italian and international artists involving the whole street making for a very colorful festival. Many other typically Roman and international fairs take place in Via Margutta which attract VIP from the entertainment and fashion world and contribute in creating an exclusive and truly special environment. Through the Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti (Spanish Steps) you can get to Villa Borghese Park, the gorgeous Rome city park with buildings, gardens, small lakes, the famous Galoppatoio that hosts horse races in Piazza di Siena, and Galleria Borghese, an extraordinary collection of masterpieces by great artists (Bernini, Caravaggio, Rubens, Titian, Canova, etc.).Roman Holiday, other movies, songs and people of Via Margutta.The house of Gregory Peck where Audrey Hepburn takes refuge in the unforgettable movie Roman Holiday can be admired at Via Margutta no. 33, and mysterious 13 was the backdrop for Il segno del Comando, the cult television series from the '70s. Director Federico Fellini also lived here and loved to take walks with Giulietta Masina. "… Love, look how beautiful the sky looks over via Margutta tonight…", this is a verse from a song called Via Margutta by Roman singer songwriter Luca Barbarossa… Less

We found this to be an ideal location between Piazza Popolo and Piazza Espagna. The staff was always willing to help and the breakfast was quite good. The rooms are on the small side and the bathrooms even smaller. Be sure to find the right converter if you have any device to

The Hotel Forte is located in a quite side street just off the Piazza di Spagna, in a great spot to tour Rome’s attractions.
The entrance to the hotel is like entering a 1920s style apartment block with austere stone steps and an old cage lift (I was like a child in this wonderf

We liked the Hotel Forte, it was on a lovely quiet street close to many restaurants and not too far from the main tourist attractions. Our room was small but adequate. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good-we did get tired of the same options after 5 day

Absolutely loved our stay here. The location in Via Mugatta could not be better for exploring this magical city. It was spotlessly clean! Our first impression was that the room was very dark, but of course in the summer this would be good! As our week went on we learned to love o

Hi, Is there anywhere nearby that has a pool of any sort that we can use while we are there? Thank you
I don't know. You might want to check the Us-based hotel chains that are in Rome. They are more likely to have that kind of amenity.

Hi what sort of breakfast does the hotel serve? Thanks.
Great coffees, pastries, cereals, eggs, bacon, cold cuts, breads, yogurts, all that you need for a robust start to a great day sightseeing in Rome. One night, we went to the grocery store, bought cold cuts etc. And went back to the breakfast room and ate.

Yes, they are very accommodating and will certainly do something for you for that special occasion. They are fantastic at the front desk! Just go ask......I loved it there and will return again. When we were there, they did something special for a 50 th Birthday.

"Hotel on first floor use the lift only 2 in at a time due to weight"
"Choose Rm. 138, had a spare single bed, more spacious."
"Rooms overlooking the Street are very noisy, and some are small if there is two of you with all your luggage."
"Rooms with an outside view are good"
