The Inn At The Roman Forum
Ranked #14 of 1,269 Hotels in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We stayed for 2 night in late September. This is a hip and stylish boutique hotel well located for the sites of ancient Rome. The colliseum is a brisk 5 - 10 minute walk away and the Roman forum (as the name implies !) probably less. The local area is actually not as touristy as some and has a trendy edge to it with some art galleries and hip looking bars. The hotel is on a quiet side street with a feel of faded elegance. The room had a very modern fit out and was pretty spacious considering sizes are smaller generally in Rome. It was comfortable and well maintained. There is a lovely roofterrace with a lovely garden and enchanting views over the rooftops of Rome. Breakfast on the terrace was mega pleasant although the breakfast buffet itself was pretty average. The roof terrace becomes a bar in the evenings for a relaxing evening drink. The room service food is very average and you would be better off giving it a miss. We had a lovely and romantic stay here in a wonderful city.

Overall, this place is really sweet -- warm and helpful staff, very good breakfast, and a spacious, comfortable room. The location is perfect, essentially adjacent to the Roman Forum and the Coliseum. You don't come here to be doted on, but it has all the comforts of a 5-star hotel and everything else you need as a home base to see Rome.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to room 401 without even asking, and I'm not sure why -- but I'd certainly...

Just returned from a lovely short break to Rome. Hotel very authentic and traditional up a lovely small street. Very pretty, typically Italian. Breakfast is a hit. Great rooftop terrace area for breakfast and pre-evening drinks (also free buffet late afternoon if drinks purchased). Very comfy bed (deluxe room). We really enjoyed our stay and the staff were particularly freindly, helpful and accomodating (especially William who kept the drinks flowing and the lady at breakfast - sorry I don't have your name!) Hotel organised airport transfers for us and everything worked out a treat - we had booked a prepaid package which included breakfast and transfer so made the price good value. Great location for the Forum and Colleseum - lovely restaurant on the street round the corner (Fori Imperiali) and we also loved the Hotel Forum's rooftop American Bar (very nearby). We walked everywhere expect a couple of night taxis to further afield restaurants we had prebooked. Taxis fairly cheap. Top tip - definitely book trips for Colleseum and Vatican - jump the line - well worth as the lines were very long indeed!!

This hotel is really great. It is small and the hospitality is striking!
We stated in 2 different rooms during our stay and they both were stunishing in different ways!
At first we stayed in one of the suites on floor 3 with a jacuzzi and our own fire place. This room is magnificent and the big, big old windows has à wiev over the roof tops and a small car free street below.
Our second room was on the first floor and was even bigger then the first ones also with à beautiful fire place and since there is no traffic on the street very quiet. We had thought that the rooms would be more of a European standard rooms = small... But no this hotell has hughe rooms every one of them different. They are even more gourgeous than you see on the website.
The hotel has 4 floors and 1-4 rooms on every floor. The best thing about this hotel though is their private garden on the 4th floor and the roof terrace on the same floor.
In the garden you can sit in the shades in the afternoon sipping a glas of wine. On the roof terrace (were your wonderful breakfast also is served) you have a complimentary afternoon snack buffé. And there you can sit in the sun and soak in the amazing views of ancient Rome!
Since the hotel is a Boutique hotel in it's right sense you find your self chatting away with the other guests and you soon get the feeling of beeing among friends in someones private home.

I Can't say enough good things about this hotel and would never stay anywhere Else if going back to Rome (hopefully soon)

Don't forget to check out the antique cellar of the building. The entrance is right next to the reception.

The location is great if you want to check out the antique Rome. It is actually located right by/in Forum Romanum and Forum imperiali. As I understand it the cellar actually is belonging to forum imperiali. Colosseum is max 5 min walk.
For the rest of the city it's also walking distance, but bring good walking shoes.
We walked to the Vatikan it is a bit of walk though maybee an hour but you always find other interesting places on the way when doing so :)

Highly recomended and i hope to be back soon!

Set amidst cobbled streets and boutique clinics this hotel deserves it’s standing within Small Leading Hotels of the World.
An oasis rooftop garden catches the Italian sun in the afternoon and its 4th floor terracotta breakfast terrace gives a superb view of capital nationale and roman forum. It would be easy to never leave this hotel, but that would completely waste the incredible location where the architectural heart of Rome lies just steps from your door.
In addition, the hotel staff are both kind and professional, personalising the experience.

Thoroughly recommended

The room is not amazing but it looks great. My bed was a bit lumpy and lopsided. It was as if two big persons slept on it for a long time as it had a funny dip on bith sides.

The staff are so friendly and helpful. This is especially true of the Filipino staff, Ruby and the gentlemen who lugs the laundry around. The breakfast is simple but great with the lovely Italian lady cooking the scrambled eggs to perfection.

The location is ideal. It cost me €10 to get from hotel to places such as Spanish steps, villa borghese, via del corso, and termini. But I also was able to walk from the hotel to all the main attractions in Rome. These included the Trevino fountain, piazza popolo, the pantheon. But one dies get very tired after.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. It's in a fantastic, but discreet, location. You can walk there from Colloseum train station, but maybe get a taxi (10 euro) to take you the first time, as you'll be hard pressed finding the hotel.
Once there, you will be immersed in the history of the location, with Foum ruins almost at the front door.
We were lucky enough to be upgraded to one of the 2 top floor suites which share a private garden and rooftop terrace for breakfast.
We will definetely stay there again.

Room Tip: Maybe avoid the suite at the front of the hotel, as noise may be a factor.
