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 had a large, modern, clean, quiet room, The hotel is near to the sights & the staff were pleasant & helpful. It's a good value hotel with a lovely breakfast - a good variety of delicious food. We were in the building along the road from the main hotel, but no complaints. We asked for a high room, which we were given.
Lovely hotel with a great location! We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed it immensely. On the first night of your stay they offer a free mini bar which is very generous. Hotel was close to lots of the major sites. Right across the road from a small supermarket with more pizzerias places surrounding the area. Couldn't hear any noise off the streets which was very good. Nice bar area down stairs, the have chain hotels close by that allowed us to use a very nice roof top terrace with amazing views.Nice sized room for a hotel in a city and well decorated. My partner and I found that the air conditioning didn't cool down the room very well and the room was very warm. The cleaners started very early at about 8;30am and were very loud, waking us and made us feel we had to get up early and go out. Other than that the hotel was very welcoming and comfortable. We felt very safe here as we needed our key card to get into the hotel . Would definitely come back and recommend.
Stayed for 4 nights in a superior room, while the hotel is modern the service is good old fashioned customer service , they can't do enough for you to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The location is perfect for all the main sites which are all within easy walking distance. The hotel provides a mobile
phone for you to use for free calls and to navigate around Rome with easy to use maps/directions. This is a great location to stay in Rome and has lots of little touches to enhance your stay such as a free mini buffet between 17.30 - 20.30 when you have a drink in the bar. One tip I would recomend is that you opt for a private transfer from the airport rather than book a shuttle bus as the wait for this can be very long. In summary this is a great hotel with lovely staff and comfortable rooms close to all the sites with plenty of places to eat close at hand.
Stayed here for a weekend in Rome, good location, 15 minute walk to colosseum, also to Trevi fountain, probably longest distance from a sight was Vatican. Staff are very helpful, watched on numerous times whilst they helped customers with luggage wheeling it out to their transfers or taking it to their room. Rooms were smart, fridge with stocked goods for one time only, then you pay if you want it refilled. Plenty of storage. Literally only downside was our shower was ever so slightly mouldey, all down the sides of the shower and glass and up the window and the curtain had a very mouldey bottom edge. On the first day I noticed you could smell mould when having a shower. Other than that it is a lovely hotel. Did not eat here, drinks are a little pricey and bar service is sloooooow, wouldn’t recommend grabbing a drink if in a rush.
The hotel is perfectly situated for all the sightseeing you need to do. The staff are excellent, and extremely accommodating, from when you first check in, right to when you check out. The breakfast was lovely, and there was plenty of it, from the fresh coffee, to the hot buffet and also continental buffet as well, and it was help yourself to as much as you like.
The hotel also provides you with a smart phone so you don't need to use your roaming data, another excellent part of the service. Although, you don't really need it as the hotel is central for everything, and the sights are within a good walking distance.
The rooms are serviced on a daily basis as well, with clean fresh towels and linen. And all the staff are very polite.
I think the only thing that could possibly enhance the stay, would be to add a roof top bar, as the views from the roof are something else, but while sitting up there could do with a nice cold beer and/or cocktail :-)
Will be looking forward to a return visit in the near future.
