Overview

Contemporary 45-room boutique with a killer location between the Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum

The Lowdown

Within a 10-minute stroll of both the Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum, this chic 45-room boutique is perfectly placed for an authentic Roman holiday. The building may date from 1900, but inside, the public spaces are modern and minimalist and bring together statement pieces (checkered footstools, contemporary armchairs) with softly curved doorways and eggplant feature walls. The grown-up guestrooms feature plump pillows atop hypoallergenic beds, and the mosaic-tiled bathrooms come with square rainfall showers or tubs. The Suites are suitably romantic with chaise longues, fluffy rugs on wood-effect porcelain floors and freestanding marble bathtubs. Breakfast is served daily, and the lounge bar offers drinks and snacks. Enjoy the Italian tradition of aperitivo and pair a zesty Aperol Spritz with free appetizers between 6 and 9 p.m.

In the Area

Rome’s best bits are on the doorstep: You can stroll to the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum within 15 minutes. If you’re looking to explore farther afield, Rome’s main Termini rail station is also within walking distance, for Italian and international rail connections. No trip to the Eternal City would be complete without visiting the Vatican, home to the awe-inspiring Sistine Chapel; getting there is easy thanks to the nearby metro station, Repubblica. If you’re looking for authentic Italian food, head to Rome’s ancient Centro Storico, where you’ll find pizzerias and gelaterias, plus plenty of quaint boutiques and art galleries.

Hotel is well situated on a quietish side street but within walking distance to all the sights- Colosseum 15 minutes, Pantheon 25, Spanish Steps 25. Our junior suite was at the rear. No great view but no street noise at all either. Room was large and comfortable with a big bed, 2 TVs, separate seating area with sofabed and desk. Modern and stylish decor. Breakfast plentiful with lots of variety including hot options. Cappuchino excellent. Staff were friendly and efficient. We were very pleased with Rome Life hotel. Top marks in all categories with some nice extra touches- an actual bath in the bathroom and a fridge full of complimentary drinks and snacks on arrival.

Great!

Lovely modern hotel in a great location, the staff were very friendly.
When we arrived they took us to a room with 2 single beds, which they quickly changed us to a double when they realised we were a couple.
2nd night in the hairdryer blew up which we rang reception and they were happy to change straight away.
Breakfast was great and the hotel was always clean
Would highly recommend

It was our first time at the Rome life hotel and won’t be our last! I visited here with my husband and 2 daughters and could not have found a better hotel! The location was excellent, staff friendly and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We were only there for 3 days but they were cleaned and towels replaced every day. My only criticism would be there wasn’t enough choice at breakfast but that is all apart from that a very enjoyable stay and we are missing it already!

Very nice

Very polite and friendly staff. Breakfast was great too. Some stairs to get to the lifts making it difficult if you have a buggy. Comfortable clean rooms. Great location. The only think I wasn't happy about was that the gym was in a neighbouring hotel. Yes, it is close, but I don't really want to walk through two front lobbies all gross after my runs etc. Yes, you could shower there, but that means bringing a whole lot of stuff with you.
Would still stay again.
