An elegant hotel near the Colosseum, with a welcome drink and breakfast served daily on the rooftop terrace
With its dreamy rooms bathed in natural light and a rooftop perfect for watching the sunset and soaking in the sights of historic Rome, Hotel Forum is a lovely hotel in the heart of the Eternal City. Adding further evidence to the claim that Italians do it better, the hotel packs a lot under its terrace, including style that mixes elegance and comfort and a menu brimming with Italian delicacies.
And if all roads lead to Rome, all roads from Hotel Forum lead to the ancient city's must-see attractions – especially the Colosseum and Roman Forum, located just a hop, skip and a jump away. But this destination isn't just about the ruins. If Renaissance architecture or the city's buzzing contemporary food scene are more your bag, you’ll find them just as easily, a short walk from this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence holder.
From the parquet flooring up, newly renovated Superior New Style rooms hold the perfect marriage of style and sophistication. Mahogany bureaus and statement headboards are bathed in natural light coming through the 18th-century style windows. And while the location may be historic, there are plenty of mod cons here too.
With a wealth of organic Italian produce at their disposal, the expert chefs create a breakfast buffet worthy of its rooftop setting. Sample some of the finest Italian cured meats and coffee while overlooking the Eternal City, or watch the sun set while enjoying the à la carte menu and extensive wine list. With the views the real star of the show, the décor is all about minimalist elegance – think crisp, white tablecloths and cast-iron furniture.
As its name suggests, Hotel Forum places you at Rome’s historic heart, just moments from the Imperial Forum and Colosseum. Renaissance Rome’s marble facades are also within walking distance, and Termini Central Station is a short underground or taxi journey away for international and local transfers.
