Dating from 1800, this former palace turned public transport HQ is now a sleek five-star property with a handy address near the Termini station, and a 20-minute walk from the Colosseum. The interiors showcase original marble features and stucco columns, but the 82 guestrooms are ultramodern with cool white walls, chunky platform beds and striking artwork. Senses restaurant serves innovative Italian fare and overlooks Rome’s Servian Wall, which was built to protect the city in the sixth century BC. The lounge bar occupies a former ticket hall and features a huge alfresco terrace. Hit the spa (free for guests staying in the Grand Deluxe room, $24 per two hours for all other guests) to relax in the indoor heated pool, sauna or Turkish bath, or to indulge in a water therapy treatment inspired by the nearby Diocletian Thermal Baths.
In the Area
It’s a short walk to the Diocletian Thermal Baths and the cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore, as well as the city’s main train station, Termini. Also nearby is the relatively untouristed but beautiful neighborhood of Monti, where many students, writers and other creative types live. Here, there’s a great local aperitivo scene in the area’s main square, the Piazza Madonna dei Monti, and at neighborhood wine bars Al Vino al Vino and Ai Tre Scalini. Taverna dei Fori Imperiali is a good restaurant to book for dinner nearby. You’re also close to one of Rome’s two metro lines, which makes the Spanish Steps, Vatican, Colosseum and Forum all easy trips.
How to Get There
Fantastic hotel, couldn't recommend more highly. Service exceptional and consistent across all staff we met, lovely rooms, fantastic concierge(arranged tickets for Serie A game at very short notice, tickets were ready 2 hours after we enquired). Fantastic lounge/restaurant area, again service exceptional. Breakfast great. Lovely spa area. Only minor minor gripe was shower in room not hot enough, but never raised this with the staff to give them a chance to fix so probably unfair!
Spa super, breakfast super, good services, the room was premium collection, little decorated, it seemed naked to the eyes, a bit of more colour it needs, but confortable. I will sure come back again. Thank you!
Really bad hotel to stay. If there is a problem in your room, nobody try to find a solution...I requested to change my room the day that I arrived and they proposed to take a shower on the SPA at the hotel....as the others rooms are busy.....NEVER AGAIN in this hotel.....
