The cosmopolitan city of Rome is as multifaceted as they come. Whether you’re in town for art, architecture, history, fashion, or food, this city truly delivers. The extensive list of must-sees here is simply staggering—from the ancient ruins of the Roman Forum and the imposing Vatican City to frescoes that have changed the course of art history. And just as it wasn’t built in a day, it can’t be experienced in a day—so stay the night, or multiple nights, in a quiet, well-located hideaway like Hotel Ariston Rome. Near Termini station, with the Coliseum and Santa Maria Maggiore within walking distance, this property features an elegant stone façade; a sleek and contemporary lobby, complete with oversized photo prints and fresh flowers; and an equally polished staff. Refurbished guest rooms are more like upscale urban pads, with wood flooring, bright décor, even more artsy photos, and oversized mirrors that give the impression of extra space. Executive rooms feature en-suite bathrooms separated by glass walls, with pull-down blinds. Afternoon brings happy hour at the bar, with tasty Italian snacks, and you can work off any excess energy in the seventh-floor gym. Or, keep pounding the Roman pavement—the staff is happy to give you insider tips on some destinations off the beaten track, too.
In the Area
Hotel Ariston sits close to Termini station, with A and B metro stops around 300 feet away. Many main attractions can be reached on foot or by short bus ride, such as the Baths of Diocletian and Villa Borghese’s park, home to the famous Galleria Borghese, which is packed with masterpieces. Also accessible are Via Veneto, Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Spagna, Via Frattina and Via Condotti, with its high-end fashion boutiques; the Coliseum is a 15-minute walk. Lesser-known local surprises include Giardino degli Aranci and the spectacular Baroque church of Sant’Ignazio.
How to Get There
We stayed here for 3 nights.
Good - hotel is clean and modern, happy hour is a good time with okay bites to eat. Breakfast was very good. Service was professional and helpful. Very close to train terminal
Bad - neighbourhood - this is we’re I gave one point off. The street has garbage on it, if this place was 2 blocks over it would be ideal
Upon arrival we were advised that our room was unavailable and relocated to another hotel at their expense how ever this altered our initial experience and continued through out our stay. We were able to walk to main tourist sites. Room was adequate however bathroom needs improvement. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was sufficient.
Amazing hotel, great location to all of the tourist attractions. Great travel links all around the city. Couldn't fault breakfast, great choice for all your needs. Rooms clean and tidy staff always helpful
