A design-led hotel near Rome's Termini station
The cosmopolitan city of Rome is as multifaceted as they come. Whether you're in town for art, architecture, history, fashion, or food, this city truly delivers. The extensive list of must-sees here is simply staggering—from the ancient ruins of the Roman Forum and the imposing Vatican City to frescoes that have changed the course of art history. And just as it wasn't built in a day, it can't be experienced in a day—so stay the night, or multiple nights, in a quiet, well-located hideaway like Hotel Ariston Rome. Near Termini station, with the Coliseum and Santa Maria Maggiore within walking distance, this property features an elegant stone façade; a sleek and contemporary lobby, complete with oversized photo prints and fresh flowers; and an equally polished staff. Refurbished guest rooms are more like upscale urban pads, with wood flooring, bright décor, even more artsy photos, and oversized mirrors that give the impression of extra space. Executive rooms feature en-suite bathrooms separated by glass walls, with pull-down blinds. Afternoon brings happy hour at the bar, with tasty Italian snacks, and you can work off any excess energy in the seventh-floor gym. Or, keep pounding the Roman pavement—the staff is happy to give you insider tips on some destinations off the beaten track, too.
