Fabulous little boutique hotel in the heart of old Rome. Directly across the street from the Palentine hill and one block down from the Forum with a gorgeous view of it just at the end of the street. Great little restaurant in the hotel but also just down the alley at InRoma restaurant. Great base for exploring all Rome has...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 March 2017

This gem tucked away in a quiet corner of Rome. The hotel had a lovely tranquil ambience with friendly helpful staff. It is situated right by the Circus Massimo, Colosseum and right by the Palentino with easy access to public transport.

A nice hotel down a narrow street. Our room overlooked some Roman ruins (see photo). The room was smallish but comfortable and clean. The shower was a mystery and took a while to master with an annoying sliding door. Had I been 10 kg heavier I probably wouldn't have fitted between the shower wall and glass. (Don't ask!) Food in...

This hotel is ideally situated for exploring Rome and its wonderful monuments. The hotel staff are very helpful and cannot do enough to make you stay comfortable and enjoyable. It must also be said it is wonderful to return to this tranquil area to gather your energy for the next day of exploration.

4 star place, room can be better especially the bed. Too hard and not long enough. We had a family room. That is only negative things. Positive: location is excellent, center of the city, but quite. Garden in the hotel is unique! Cappuccino excellent. Breakfast good, but lunch or dinner much better. The best thing was the chef Lily and...

Well what a fantastic trip in a lovely hotel. The staff are all extremely helpful & friendly. My boyfriend had flown to Rome earlier in the week, which meant I was travelling alone. I arrived at the hotel about 2 hours prior to check in and was going to be on my own for a few hours, thankfully the receptionist...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a quiet area and very good location, about 20 min walk to The Colosseum. The room could need some paint here and there, but overall a nice room.

Nice location close to coliseum. Friendly helpful staff. Room is ok but has two problems. The TV in bedroom has fuzzy picture on all the channels so did not use and secondly the air conditioning did not work at all. Luckily we can open the windows and had to suffer the noise outside which was road traffic. The free wifi...

Staying in Aventine

Neighbourhood Profile
Aventine
Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is Rome’s oasis. A neighbourhood made up of a patchwork of ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of surprises like the clever little keyhole at the Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.
