The front desk is incredible, no matter what time of day or who you speak to they are all outstanding. My wife arrived later than I and the taxi driver was trying to take advantage, she asked the front desk for help (don't remember her name) and she jumped in and straitened everything out. The rooms were really nice, the location (2 blocks from the Colosseum) is great.

Excellent hotel. The staff were always friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home right from the start. Rooms were spotless and we had a great view of the Colosseum from our balcony. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. It's located in a quiet residential area about 5 minutes walk from the Colosseum. Lots of nice wine bars and restaurants in the immediate area - hotel staff gave us some great recommendations. We didn't feel unduly concerned about staying there during the Coronavirus outbreak as the hotel clearly had very high hygiene standards, displayed relevant infection prevention information and had hand sanitiser available. Overall a wonderful, family run hotel that we will stay at during future visits to Rome, and will be highly recommending to family and friends. The hotel's biggest asset is their staff, they are a credit to hotel.

Lovely small hotel with very friendly staff. Located in a quiet street near the Colosseum and San Clemente. It was a perfect base for exploring Historic Rome. The breakfast was exceptionally good too.

During our time in Rome we stayed in the Hotel Lancelot. In addition to being a Rick Steves pick for best hotels, it was also available through Priceline which allowed us to book a package deal including airfare and hotel. The rooms were immaculate and beautifully appointed. The staff was gracious, helpful, and offered wonderful recommendations on local restaurants and points of interest. Breakfast Breakfast was offered as part of the accommodations and provided many wonderful options including hot hard boiled eggs in the shell. This might sound like a weird insight to point out, but there was no question as to the freshness and I found them particularly enjoyable. Other items included a variety of croissants, fruit, cereals, pastries, deli meats, cheeses, and juices, all fresh and well displayed. Coffee and tea’s were also available. Location It is located in a residential area of Rome a few blocks from the Colosseum. The area contains many excellent restaurants within walking distance that are less touristy and cater to a more local clientele. Don’t be afraid to venture away from the restaurant’s geared to the English speaking tourist. These typically have pictures of food posted outside the storefront and employees outside trying to pull you into the shop. When traveling, I like to follow the advice St Ambrose gave St Augustine in the 4th century AD. When in Rome, do as the Romans do. We have applied this philosophy to all of our travels and found the road less traveled by, has made all the difference. Do take the time to learn the pleasantries in the native language of the place you are visiting. Although many speak English, it is polite to initiate a conversation in their native language. Apply the golden rule as you travel, and you may find a whole new world will open to you. Arrivederci, Benedizioni -Peter #HotelLancelot #VisitingRome
