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
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.
Had a quick night in Rome recently & chose to stay at the Rome Times Hotel again. Stayed in the annex 5-6 doors along the same street and again the room was great. Only issues was the lack of lighting in the ante room, made it hard to find things in our bags. Breakfast was again great, staff were excellent as well.
Really convenient location, just a walk down the hill into the centre of Rome and everything is within easy walking range.
Will stay again when next in Rome.
We stayed for four nights in late February having read the reviews on Trip Advisor and this was an excellent choice.
On arrival we were made welcome by the reception staff and provided with a local map, overview of hotel facilities, room facilities and shown to the lift. The room was on the third floor and was well appointed with stylish design, excellent bathroom with rain shower and toiletries as well as tea and coffee making facilities, TV, WiFi (approx 2mb) safety deposit box and mini bar fridge, which was free use on first night.
Breakfast contained a wide variety of options from fresh fruits, juices, yogurts, pastries, breads, cheeses, meats, pastries as well as scrambled egg, bacon etc. The dining room is small, stylish and the staff are very welcoming and attentive.
We used the hotel restaurant on two occasions for evening meals which were well presented and service was also polite and professional.
The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful throughout the visit, very professional.
An excellent location to explore all of the main central Rome attractions.
Would certainly go back to this hotel again.
Stayed at this hotel from the 11/2/19 for 3 nights and was not disappointed!! Room immaculate and a nice touch was the mini bar and the use of mobile if required although we didn’t, lovely friendly staff and choice of food at breakfast satisfactory nothing was too much for the staff! Only criticism and very very minor was that I’m only 5 feet tall and found hangers in wardrobe a bit high to reach but not really a problem if you’re with someone. Nice view of the opera house from our second floor room and although on busy road traffic didn’t disturb sleep. Hotel central for all sight seeing. Hope to return with family again! Thank you to all staff for making our stay such a pleasant experience!
A great hotel, really convenient to walk to all the sites in Rome, we even walked to the Vatican which was about 45 minutes away. Breakfast had a good selection of food. Room was nice and quiet, mini bar was free which was a nice addition. I would definitely recommend
