Delightful stay at Hotel Lancelot. They put on a wonderful New Year's Eve show: the meal lasted all evening - exquisite gourmet dishes - was punctuated by opera arias and belly-dancing, and ended with us all watching the fireworks over the Coliseum from the hotel terrace. We especially enjoyed the informal and very welcoming feel of this family-run place. The staff are friendly and very helpful - Michael the barman's ginger tea rescued us when we were going down with colds! We'd recommend it to anyone visiting Rome.

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Lancelot. The location was prefect, it is only a stones throw away from great restaurants, and about a 5-7 minute walk to the Colosseum. In our room, we actually could see the Colosseum from our window! The hotel was very nice and cozy. Their breakfast meal was very good with assortments of pastries, cereals, fruits and juices. There is a terrance on the 6th floor with wonderful views of the city available all the time. The manager Mrs. Kahn was so helpful in making our stay great. I sent multiple emails and changed our plans many of times and they showed great patience. Francisca at the front desk showed us how to get to places, called taxis for us, and printed out the train schedule for us, she was great. There was not much to complain about, only that the walls are paper thin and the beds are really firm, but that's usually everywhere. If you do stay here, a bunch of the taxi drivers didn't know the hotel by name, but just mention the street "Capo d'Africa" they will find it easily. I would stay here again.

Hotel Lancelot gave its guests a fantastic start to New Year.
A pre-dinner glass of champagne whilst we were entertained with music and song from a soprano, pianist, accordionist,jazz singer and guitarist. This was followed by a gourmet meal accompanied with Frascarti and Chianti. As midnight struck we were whisked to the hotel balcony terrace to watch a wonderful firework display and more champagne, then downstairs for partying and dancing.
The Khan family and their staff onced again made this visit a super experience.

We spent the 25th of December here. I was a little sad to not be spending the holidays at home, but the staff at the Lancelot made us feel incredibly welcome. We ended up eating Christmas dinner with them and then playing dice games afterward with the family. Anyways if going to Rome I highly recommend this hotel. Fantastic location, staff, and accommodations.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Colosseum

Spent 5 nights here in Nov. 2011. Location is great if you want to be near the Colessium and Roman Forum. If that's not your thing, there isn't much else nearby. Hotel is very clean and the front desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We had a terrace view of the collessium and the terrace was HUGH! It had plants and flowers in addition to a table and chairs. EXCELLENT! My only complaint is the bathroom...there are no shelves on which to store toiletries, which got annoying after a while. Buffet breakfast was nice, although the coffee should be better than it is.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace view of the colesseum. It is worth it!!!
