In a traditional Roman townhouse just off the Via Nazionale, a 15-minute walk from the Colosseum, Rome Times is a contemporary crash pad with a killer city center location. The clean-cut white and gray interiors showcase the building’s original arches, and bespoke furniture crafted specially for the hotel dots the public spaces. The lobby-level lounge bar serves classic cocktails and drinks paired with Italian snacks and canapés between 6 and 9 p.m. Or head up to the rooftop bar for sundowners and skyline views. The guestrooms feature kingsize beds topped with hypoallergenic mattresses, and the contemporary furnishings, muted tones and ambient lighting create a calm vibe. The marble bathrooms are stocked with his-and-hers toiletries and come with either a tub or a shower. Gym bunnies can hit the petite fitness center, but for a cultural workout, Rome’s major sights are on the doorstep: the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps are a 10-minute walk away.
In the Area
Rome’s best bits are within easy reach. 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 rail station, Termini, 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.
How to Get There
We booked this hotel after reading reviews from other people but especially a family with a 9 year old boy. This was our family situation too. It was a perfect choice. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the main sites. It is clean, the room was comfortable and a good size. The service was great and the food at breakfast and lunch tasty. We enjoyed the cocktails made for us by the barman. The staff on reception ordered a taxi for us, which arrived promptly and were helpful. I would recommend this hotel for people who want to walk around the city. It is near restaurants which serve great food at reasonable prices.
Hotel in excellent location near too all the sights .hotel ok we were put in the annexe very dark room size of room ok but bathroom was dirty I cleaned the wall and the dirt came of easy not been given a good clean for a long time we did get clean towels every day and the bed was fine .breakfast was ok and staff friendly .we went up to the roof terrace as weather was warm it was all closed and very shabby looking we thought hotel was expensive and definitely not a 4 star
We stayed for four nights in the Rome Times Hotel and enjoyed every moment of it. The room was small but perfect and had everything we needed. The location was fabulous and we walked everywhere we went except to the Vatican (we took a bus which was easy enough!)
Breakfast had good variety and staff were very attentive! Any problems were resolved quickly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone that happens to be in Rome for a few days.
