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.

Disappointed
Reviewed 3 days ago

We stayed in the Rome Life Hotel for the first 4 nights of our 10 day holiday and we were very dissatisfied for a number of reasons. Firstly we were outside the Housekeeping storage room so were constantly woken up by the noise. We only had our room made up twice in the four days, the first time they made the bed but didn’t change the dirty sheets. The second time we came back after being drenched in the rain we unfortunately had on our trip to find that Housekeeping had not replaced the towels. I called them to ask for towels, waited half an hour, still no towels, I had to ask Housekeeping myself for towels when I heard them go into their storage room, I was still dripping wet at this point! The floor of our room was so dirty my feet were black! We ordered room service and the food we received was cold. The breakfast however was delicious and the staff were friendly and professional. We will not be staying here again nor will I recommend it to anyone.

Excellent location at a great price

This hotel is convenient to many of the top sites in Rome but is located on a side street reducing any problem with noise and traffic. The people working here were uniformly helpful and friendly and I would not hesitate yo go back. There are also several good restaurants of various types within easy walking distance.

Solid choice for visiting Rome

Rome Life Hotel is a great choice for visiting the typical spots in Rome. So what do you get here? Excellent service, modern decor, clean comfortable (but small) rooms, simple but nice breakfast, fantastic value, and a 10-15 minute walk to Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, etc. Look....if you're visiting Rome, you're gonna walk. My Fitbit reported that we walked 19,000 steps our first day. Make it easier on yourself and stay close to what you want to see. And the price is very nice! We would stay here again, and hope to someday.

Perfect location

Spent two nights here with a friend. A lovely hotel in a central position to reach all the best attractions in Rome. The hotel is beautifully presented and has the bonus of a roof top bar. There was a great choice of food for breakfast. Especially want to mention the staff who were all so friendly and helpful. Will be recommending Rome Life to everyone

Great compact hotel- good location- worth it at 250 euro/night, but not more.

The hotel is by Mood Hotels Group & they certainly know how to set the mood! Great decor /interiors but rest everything is stripped down to basics - though good quality but basic.

Breakfast buffet is very very simple, better off not taking it and ordering a la carte. Eggs to order should be part of even the most basic buffet. Nice location though rome is spread out, so location is relative to what one wants to do.

Happy Staff, happy hotel - very compact rooms, but beautifully designed. Access to breakfast area is via a convention area, a bit odd, but more distracting for the convention attendees! Free minibar - first round!

My suggestions.

Stuff they cannot do anything about
- basin counter could’ve been bigger
- improve lighting in rooms- very difficult to do makeup!

Stuff they can do something about
- add more luggage racks, the portable ones , so ur lovely furniture isn’t ruined by suitcases.
- add eggs to order in breakfast buffet
- improve the cappuccino.
- add an international socket for international appliances in every room. Atleast one!
