Pros: We were assigned to a room without drawers (can you believe it?) and after talking to reception they were very accommodating and changed us to a bigger room. The hotel has a great decor and it is exceptionally clean and smell fresh. The bathrooms are bigger than enough, but a litter darker than we like. The service at the... More

We have a preference for boutique hotels, so we have a good range of experiences to benchmark the "first art hotel" - it is one of the best we have stayed in. We would definitely recommend it and we will definitely stay there again when we return to Rome in the future.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
