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
Hotel employees were nice, breakfast was good. Happy hour came with goodies! Their Air Condition was top notch. We really appreciate this since it was sweltering in August. The hotel proximity was close enough to walk to many places!
This hotel is situated near the train station for convenience and near colosseum, But a fair way from other main attractions. The area is very run down and not very safe at night. The hotel itself is nice a little run down in areas (carpets in hallways, decor in rooms) for a 4 star!? Breakfast was really good and great variety.( best breakfast we had in Italy) more like a 3 star. Staff very helpful and always happy to help
Booked Ariston Hotel for first time trip to Italy and was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were quite spacious and were well kept every day; towels were replaced each day as well as the drinks in the mini fridge and the room was very clean. As much as we enjoyed the ancient parts of Rome, the beautiful modern decor throughout the hotel was a breath of fresh air. The breakfast was delicious with many options for all taste preferences. On our day of departure we didn’t have time to stay for breakfast so they gave each of us a bag with food and drinks to go. The staff greeted us with warm welcoming smiles each day. They were all friendly and approachable and were quick to assist with any requests we had. The location was ideal as it is about a three minute walk from termini station which offers trains, busses, metro, and a taxi stand. Some attractions were close enough to walk to while others were a short metro ride away. Overall great stay with not a single bad thing to say about this hotel, I would for sure consider booking again if in Rome in the future.
Hotel Location was amazing, close to the train station. Breakfast was good. Only thing was the key card system. Key card if required to keep electricity in room working, we were only issued one keycard which meant that you had to turn off AC completely during the hot months when you are out and about. Also, if you have multiple people sharing one room, you need to come and go together. I like to run early in the morning...so with only one key card, I have to wake up someone to open door for me when I return. If I take the card with me when I run the room would be without power! Exercise room is not Air Conditioned and is basically useless in the summer months, It might as well be a sauna as it is located on the top floor. There seems to be a newer renovated portion and an unrenovated portion. This review is based on the renovated portion where we stayed. Room noise was also an issue as you can clearly hear other guest in the room next door.
The hotel is close to the station, convenience to other attractions. Nice and clean room, very good breakfast, lots of restaurants nearby, Chinease restaurant across the street is very good with reasonable price.
