For style-hunters seeking a characterful stay in the Eternal City, this classy little three-storey villa with an elegant interior garden is a spot-on pick. Set in the peaceful Monte Sacro neighbourhood, it has everything you’d want from a Rome pad: a super-central setting, carefully-curated interiors, and a high level of service.
Once you’ve gorged on ancient art and architecture in the Italian capital, head back here to enjoy a quick sweat session in the little gym or a pampering treatment in your room. Alternatively, spend your time in the Internet Café Lounge & Library – a laid-back spot that’s perfect for web browsing, book-borrowing, listening to music, and sinking a few bottles of Italian beer.

How to Get There
We stayed at the ARS hotel for 2 nights - easy for access to public transport and therefore perfect for seeing the sights. The hotel is very pretty and modern. Yes the room was small but you don’t go to Rome to stay in your room! I thought breakfast was excellent and the hotel was very good value for money. Andrea was very hospitable and informative and excellent at his job. We would definitely return.
This hotel was booked as part of a trip for us as a present. I looked at the reviews and wasn't sure as there were a few critisms. Well, I should never have worried. It was a lovely hotel in a quiet residential area and lovely to be surrounded by typical Italian properties. Yes, there's bins but these are for the apartments in the narrow streets (no driveways so only place for them the go) and yes, there's a little graffiti around but really not much for a city and this is really a safe area, we walked about at night and never ever did I see anything to worry about at all. It is in a desirable area of Rome and it's literally a five minute walk down to the Metro station which takes you directly into the centre of Rome and everything you need to see. So quick and easy. I wouldn't bother messing about with buses. Just get a ticket from a machine or at the ticket office (English speaking) which you can then use easily during your stay. The Metro is just 2 lines in Rome and very simple. The line the hotel is on drops you straight outside the Colesseum if that's where you choose to go! The hotel recommended an evening eaterie called Casa Claudia which was a little walk away from the hotel, across some busier roads and past some work units. But I was so glad we went. A really beautiful restaurant, free Prosecco on arrival and free soup starter. Authentic, fresh Italian food without central Rome prices. This was really seeing Rome as locals. The best of both worlds on this trip. The taxi fare to/ from airport was 60 Euros as we landed late/went early but you could use the Metro or bus. But if you use the Metro there is a little hilly road to go up which you may struggle with with your luggage. The hotel can organise your taxi back to the airport, they need to know the morning before your day of departure. We went here in February but I would imagine the hotel room we stayed in would be lovely and cool in the summer. Breakfast was plentiful, I'm not sure why there would be complaints on this site. The hotel was really clean, our room was tided and cleaned to a really high standard. If you want an authentic trip to Rome, this is a lovely little place to stay.
Recently stayed at the hotel which is quite difficult to find in a residential area. The hotel is pleasant with quite relaxed staff. The continental style breakfast was average, although an obvious lack of fruit and the toaster was completely useless for our entire stay.
The biggest disappointment was the size of the room. Although relatively cheap, so wouldn't stay there again.
24 hour reception, modern rooms, clean. Buffet breakfast was adequate but coffee was good! Lay out of the hallways and stairways is a bit odd but really cannot sat anything bad about it, bed was comfy and room reasonable price with decent bathroom.
Walk to metro is approx 7/8 mins and easy to get to centre of Rome via metro, wifi seemed good.
After getting off the metro and gradually finding our way to the hotel (past the overflowing rubbish bins, broken glass and graffiti ridden walls) we found our lovely hotel. It really is a beautiful little place, the staff were super friendly and helpful, even the breakfast and cleaning staff who only knew a few words of English tried their best to assist if needed. The rooms was comfortable and clean with lovely toiletries and good towels. Breakfast, although a small setting, had plenty of choice to suit everyone’s needs. I don’t agree with the complaints about breakfast to be honest although the location of the hotel is odd but the transport connections around are brilliant (and cheap!)
