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.

I had an amazing time saying at this hotel.

The location is great and the room was very comfortable. I was within walking distance of all the attractions, I walked 10 minutes and was at the Coliseum. This hotel is also near many restaurants and the street is kind of quiet at night.The breakfast was delicious and convenient. The room came with water, drinks and snacks for free. The hotel provided a free cell phone to use with free calls,wifi and data, this was very useful and I used it everyday I stayed at this hotel.

The staff was beyond helpful. Anytime I asked a staff member for help they would immediately help me in the nicest and most polite way. I am so happy I stayed at this hotel is was the best hotel I stayed in on my Italy trip, I was actually sad I left because the other hotels I stayed at were not as good. I have told everyone how amazing this hotel is!

Great location and great hotel

Stayed here for 3 nights and can’t fault anything within the hotel. On arrival staff were friendly and took us to our room. Check in was straight forward. Room was lovely with huge king size bed, large wardrobe with safe and huge TV. Only downside to the TV was one or two English channels which were the news. Large rain shower and comfy bath. Little mini bar in the room which was restocked after the first day. Breakfast each morning had a great selection of hot and cold food. Nice little roof garden as well. Great location and only 10 minutes to the colosseum and the Trevi fountain. We walked everywhere on our trip. No air con this time of year but it was okay. Room cleaned each day. Great service, comfy room and great location.

Nice, but too hot room
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I stayed at this hotel with my husband Mid-March 2018. The location of the hotel is very good if you don't mind walking and the hotel itself was very nicely done. The room was small, but functional and stylish. The breakfast was very good and the hotel even brough me a "birthday cake" for my 40th birthday, which was a very nice surprise.
The only negative was that the room was really hot! We tried to adjust the aircon and were told that it works only for heating, not for cooling. The staff told us that the only way to cool the room was to open the large window, which was not ideal since you couldn't leave the window open for the night.
But despite the heat problem we were very happy with the hotel and our room.

Friendly Hotel

We stayed at Rome Life Hotel in February. It is only a 20 minute walk to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, and Spanish Steps. And only a short taxi ride to the Vatican (about 10 euro).
Upon check-in, the receptionist and bellhop were very welcoming. They gave us information regarding the famous sites, breakfast time, etc.
The room had a very comfortable bed and pillows. I slept very well, better than at other hotels. The bathroom was very clean (I am very picky about this). The refrigerator had some water, soda, and beer. However, it is not refilled. There is coffee that can be made, with to-go cups available.
The breakfast is from 7am-10am. There were many choices, such as bacon, scrambled eggs, frittata, cold meats, grilled vegetables, breads, cereals, yogurt, pastries, juices, etc. The waiter also offered us cappuccinos.
I did notice that every time my husband and I walked into or out of the front entrance, a person at the desk always greeted us with a smile. For this, I give this hotel 5 stars!!
I would recommend this hotel to friends and family staying in Rome. Thank you!
