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.
Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €6 per person, per night is payable directly to the hotel.
How to Get There
Was told this was a 4 star hotel but I would classify it as a 2.9 .. too many steps and boring breakfast was suppose to be full American breakfast but was small and not much variety. clean small rooms ours was in the basement and could hear them setting up kitchen in the early morning like 5am for 7am meal.. beds were small and uncomfortable. Rooms were clean. Staff not very friendly and hard to get information out of them.
My husband and I spent our 9 day honeymoon in the ARS Hotel. The staff couldn't do enough to help and the breakfast was lovely. They taught us a little more Italian and were always smiling and happy to help regardless of the time. Situated around 20 minutes from the centre of Rome, the Metro and busses are easy to catch and give you the freedom of the city. We paid for evening meals and received a 16 Euro voucher er person for 3 local restaurants which do not disappoint. Would definitely stay here again. Such a quiet and clean hotel. Perfect for privacy and relaxation.
My husband and I stayers at the ARS Hotel for 3 nights. We definitely enjoyed our stay here: the staff was very friendly, breakfast included everything you need (bread, cereals, eggs and bacon, cheese and ham, yoghurt, pastries). We didn’t quite understand how some people in other reviews can complain about the fact that there is not enough choice: what do you require? A full luxury buffet? For the price you pay per night at this hotel, it is a very fair offer you get. We also don’t understand the complaints about the location: there is a bus stop at 5 minutes walking that takes you to the center in 20 minutes. There is also a metro station at 10 minutes walking distance, also 20 minutes to the center. The only thing that bothered us a little bit were the people in the room next to/across from us: they made a lot of noise and you can here everything, but this is something the staff can’t do anything about and if you put in earpluggs, that problem is solved :) Other remark: the beds are very hard, so we didn’t sleep very well. In summary: fair price for a nice hotel. We’d rate this between 3 and 4 stars.
Really nice hotel with friendly and welcoming staff. Situated about 20 mins from the centre of Rome but easily accessed by either Metro or bus - both about 5 min walk from hotel.
Nice comfortable rooms and ours had a balcony which was great to sit out on and relax.
Nice varied contintental breakfast was a bonus and a good start to to the day. Some nice restaurants and bars just a short walk from the hotel as well.
We didn't arrive until about 9 pm but the staff still directed us to a restaurant where we could get an evening meal.
Would definietly recommend
The Hotel is just a short bus or metro ride from the centre of Rome. The staff were very helpful and arriving before midday took our bags to place in our room when ready and advised us on where we could get a good lunchtime salad. They provided a map of the local area and wrote on bus and metro routes and the best footpath routes to take. The breakfast was ok with plenty of variety but we have found that breakfast is not an Italian speciality so don't get too excited and contains lots of sweet elements. Even croissants are coated in sugar syrup.
