We were very pleased with the location, price and the staff (very helpful). However, the rooms are below grade. As a result the room was very damp and musty smelling. The sheets never felt dry. We had mold on the walls in some places. The shower door did not close properly, resulting in water on the bathroom floor. Our feet...

Dear Guest we are sorry but perhaps you did not understand that our rooms were in the past ancient authentic Roman Cisterns.Our property is a unique and very special place. The floor of the rooms is made of original bricks of 2000 years ago and 'this is the reason why if you go barefoot you get dirty, but not because...

I booked this Rifugio degli Artisti. and when asked by email,I estimated the time of arrival to the hotel. After a 10hours flight to Rome which was late, a long queuing up for non EU resident for passport control, and a shuttle which was late, I got out of the airport much later than expected. It was still 9pm in...

Dear Customer, we are sorry for your experience.Unfortunately your behavior has been very incorrect because of this review.Before check-in we have sent many mails to you asking for your check-in time but no one has ever answered. On your reservation it is written that our latest check-in is at 6:30 pm but if the customer tells us an other check-in...

After an early morning train from Sorrento to Naples & another from Naples to Rome, we were exhausted as we arrived. We dragged our suitcases through cobblestone streets as the temps began to soar into the 80's... But Nico made our stay great from the minute he threw open the door with a warm, "Ciao!" He bounded around, happily showing...

Pros: Great location, smack in the middle of everything Great staff able to help with pretty much everything Nice pricing (we paid Euro 120/night for Room Nr. 2) for this location Cons: The rooms are in the basement which means you have no idea what the weather is like The TV was about 14 inch, smaller than on my computer......

Hi, we went there for 4 days for my fiancé 30's birthday as a surprise trip and we had the perfect stay. Booked directly with the property (Domenico) and the host was so charming and helpful. The guesthouse is located in the center and all major attractions are nearby. He knows how to treat well his guests. Well recommended!

The good: Nice and very charming B&B in the heart of Rome close to Piazza del Popolo and easy to reach by public transportation (just a five minute walk from Flaminio subway station). We stayed there in July when it was incredibly hot outside so we were thankful that the rooms are located in the basement and thus pleasantly cool....

As the headline suggests, these beds are the best I have slept in when staying at hotels in Rome. Its location is also superb in the old artists quarter (as the name of the hotel indicates) between the river, Via del Corso and Piazza del Popolo. The rooms (as well as the reception area) are cosy and tastefully decorated with...

Everything was perfect. Host was very kind and helpful, keeping our luggages before check in and after check out. The room was very comfortable with a great artistic vibe (many sculptures and beautiful paintings). Close to all the main attractions. Don't miss it and we will for sure come back.

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.
