An elegant hotel near the Colosseum, with a welcome drink and breakfast served daily on the rooftop terrace

The Lowdown

With its dreamy rooms bathed in natural light and a rooftop perfect for watching the sunset and soaking in the sights of historic Rome, Hotel Forum is a lovely hotel in the heart of the Eternal City. Adding further evidence to the claim that Italians do it better, the hotel packs a lot under its terrace, including style that mixes elegance and comfort and a menu brimming with Italian delicacies.
And if all roads lead to Rome, all roads from Hotel Forum lead to the ancient city’s must-see attractions – especially the Colosseum and Roman Forum, located just a hop, skip and a jump away. But this destination isn’t just about the ruins. If Renaissance architecture or the city’s buzzing contemporary food scene are more your bag, you’ll find them just as easily, a short walk from this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence holder.


From the parquet flooring up, newly renovated Superior New Style rooms hold the perfect marriage of style and sophistication. Mahogany bureaus and statement headboards are bathed in natural light coming through the 18th-century style windows. And while the location may be historic, there are plenty of mod cons here too.


With a wealth of organic Italian produce at their disposal, the expert chefs create a breakfast buffet worthy of its rooftop setting. Sample some of the finest Italian cured meats and coffee while overlooking the Eternal City, or watch the sun set while enjoying the à la carte menu and extensive wine list. With the views the real star of the show, the décor is all about minimalist elegance – think crisp, white tablecloths and cast-iron furniture.


As its name suggests, Hotel Forum places you at Rome’s historic heart, just moments from the Imperial Forum and Colosseum. Renaissance Rome’s marble facades are also within walking distance, and Termini Central Station is a short underground or taxi journey away for international and local transfers.

How to Get There

Hotel Forum
Via Tor de' Conti, 25
Rome, 00184 Italy


Worst hotel ever!

STAY Away from this place! It is not worth the price. Staff is rude and racist . The room we were given was dirty and the bed sheets had stains on it. The worst part is the rude attitude of the hotel management and staff, just saying sorry does not solve the problem.

Prime Location but be careful which room you get

Second time we stayed here - first time was much better when we had a double room overlooking the Forum.

The location is great: 2 mins walk to Forum and 8 minutes to Colosseum and lots of restaurants within walking distance

However - be very careful about what rooms you book: This time we took a Family room (two adjoining bedrooms with bathrooms). Mistake: it was located down in the bowels of the building with no view - and accessed by taking lift to second floor, walking down corridor then taking another lift down to the first floor. No view, looks out onto another building, dark and no effective air conditioning

The breakfast is served in a roof top restaurant which has wonderful views over the Forum

They did have parking at €40 per day

Wedding Reception

We love this place! We organised our wedding reception, and our accommodation in the Jnior Suite at Hotel Forum more than a year ago for September 2019, and we had a wonderful time! The staff here are all lovely, and the decor of the hotel is just beautiful! The hotel is situated walking distance to all the attractions, with many bars and restaurants and bars close by. The rooms have lovely bathrooms, and beautiful parquet floors. The beds are very comfortable, and the views overlook the forum. The hotel also offers a laundry service, and there is also a pressing service available for suits and dresses. The rooftop restaurant is absolutely splendid, with panoramic views over the forum to Piazza Vanezzia, and the American Bar above the restaurant which offers even more panoramic views, which is where we had our wedding reception. We loved it so much that we came back to stay at the end of our honeymoon. I really cannot say enough about how lovely the Hotel Forum is! We will definitely be back again. Grazie ragazzi!
