Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2013

As recommended by previous reviewers we asked for a superior room, now i think we might just have scraped in on the superior bit of the hotel. The room 306 was very nice the view was to the left , of an alley to the main road, and, then a building,and to the right we could see a bit of the Forum. We had air con, not firece but enough for the night time, When we were getting ready to go out we just opened the window for fresh air
All the staff were extremely helpful, Maria in the breakfast room was delightful. The maids, reception, bell boys everyone
Breakfast, there was a lot of choice,and if you wanted cooked it was available at a supplement

The WI FI was disasterous, I think we should have sat near the reception,i.e near the front door,

Views from the restaurant and roof top bar were exceptional

Would go back again if I ever return to Rome,but would ask for a room directely facing the Forum

All roads lead to Rome. Well, I say all roads lead to the Hotel Forum. Being directly across from the Forum with a breathtaking view and a gorgeous interior is only the beginning. As a bonus, even though you're centrally located, you're removed from the loud and busy streets so you feel like a real "locale". Though this is our second visit, we have never been underwhelmed with the Hotel Forum. After arriving from Germany at 8:30 a.m. -- about 4 hours before the actual check-in time, we were treated like true friends from the start. Breakfast was delicious (the dates are a must). Everyone who works there is truly kind and courteous, from the concierge desk to the breakfast waiters. One of the men who worked at the concierge spent 30 minutes calling countless restaurants and found us an amazing one in Trastevere. Fast forward many hours, about 8:30 p.m., we decided to stop at the rooftop bar, since they provided us with free drinks. You can't put a price on the view. Even in 48 hours, you can tell why this hotel predates "Roman Fever" time. Cinque stelle!

We've just spent eight nights here and have enjoyed staying at this hotel very much. The single biggest reason for staying at this hotel is its location - just across the road from the Roman Forum.

The room wasn't vast but was more than big enough for two of us. We'd booked an upgraded room with a Forum view and we got a good Forum view.

I could get the WIFI signal in the bedroom but only just. More often than not I found that I's to stand either by the room door or in the corridor to pick up the signal.

Breakfast is OK but not fantastic consisting of high carb and sugar pastries and limited amounts of sausages and cheese. The view from the room however is fantastic.

We never ate in the hotel restaurant but it seemed very overpriced (as was the minibar, hotel bars and extra breakfast items) however there is a restaurant next door, La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali, that is excellent - go early on in your stay because you'll want to go back (although you must book).

Room Tip: Go for an upgraded room

From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. All of the staff from reception to the restaurant were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our family suite, two seperate rooms with one double and two single beds, was very spacious and comfortable and was kept perfectly clean. Breakfast was very good with a good choice of rolls, croisants, meats, cheeses, pastries, yoghurt and fruit and the view across the Forum spectactular. Evening drinks in the roof top American Bar was most enjoyable. This was my second visit and I will definitely return again.

Had 2 nights in rome, the location of the hotel was simply fantastic. We had room 305 which overlooked the ruins, wow. Room was nice, only suggestions I would offer are it would be nice if the fridge had space to put something in, and to have option of aircon (fan great but could have used air con). Shutters were great in keeping out street noise, it was hard to tell what time it was. Both the restaurant and American bar on top were nice, get in early for a seat thou in bar. Breakfast plentiful. So many things to see within walking distance, would thoroughly recommend

This venue is really 30' seconds away from the Foro Romano, the very heart of historic Rome, and convenently located near the life-bursting Rione Monti, full of typical restaurants and trendy bars. The personnel is professional and kind and the rooms are the right size, furnished with taste and, of course, perfectly clean. The roof garden has an amazing view over the Fori Romani and is the place where the really abundant and not touristic breakfast is served.
As it often happens the dark side is the Internet Connectivity. Wi-Fi is free but simply non-functioning, despite the claims of the staff pretending everything was okay. Was there for business and no one of my colleagues managed to get something more than old modems speed from that. As this is a hotel with an excellent room for meetings the lack of proper Wi-Fi connectivity refrains me from giving a 5-star evaluation.
But for the rest is perfect.
