Reviewed 11 August 2012

What a cool place. Tucked away but in the middle of everything, quiet, loved the decor, loved the exclusive feel. Lots of neat art, room size and features as expected and the staff were very willing to go out of their way to accommodate our various requests. Nice selection of breakfast meats, particularly the red-pepper sopressata, which was paired off with a nice fontina, I think. I'd rather stay here than a mainstream hotel every day of the week. You will be thrilled.

Room Tip: We stayed at the end of the hall on the Orange Hall and it was quite fine. Of course, flipping the...

Location, ambience, comfy beds, great breakfast in a beautiful breakfast room. We have stayed here a number of times and have never been disappointed. We love the funky multi coloured floors and the clean white background in the lobby which shows up the art pieces. Staff are always pleasant, helpful and polite. The hotel is in Via Margutta which is a nice quiet street only a couple of minutes walk from the Spanish Steps. It is a well-priced and comfortable hotel.

Pros: Really cool art all around the hotel. Bed and pillow were super comfy. Breakfast spread was varied and delicious and the lobby where you eat it is architecturally inviting. Location near the Spanish Steps is ideal. The actual street the hotel is on is very cute and romantic. Room size is fine. Close to Spanga metro station. Tons of shopping in the area. Very quiet at night.

Cons: They only give you wifi for free for 30 mins. Then you have to pay. And wifi only works in the lobby.

The Hotel Art is certainly by the Spanish Steps, so location cannot be faulted. Also, it is in a very nice, quite side street, but ideally situated for a number of sites, so this was a big plus.
Also, it is certainly very arty, and if that is what you are looking for it is great.
The rooms are rather small (at least ours was, and it was supposed to be a "superior" but only just managed a king size bed and not much else).
Also, it does not have a gym. It has one (very old) treadmill, somewhat bizarrely placed right next to a couple of loungers for relaxing (next to someone sweating away on a treadmill?).
The matress was a but firm for my liking, and the choice of TV channels was very limited.
Breakfast was good, and the staff were helpful and efficient.
However, I cannot rate this hotel too highly, especially when we paid over 200 Euro per night.

Room Tip: I personally wouldn't bother with an upgrade.

Following on from other reviews I just want to clarify a few things. When I saw the hotel online it immediately appealed to me, but there were some negative comments. When I got there I was pleasantly surprised, the staff were extremely helpful, I found the room size to be fine, not as small as some reviews would have you believe and WIFI was free for 30min every day - you can pay for more if required. In short, fantastic location, great breakfast, clean, great staff. I definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is very well located close to the Spanish steps and the Place de Popolo. The breakfasts were delicious and the area is interesting. However the rooms are small and a good tip is to check your room first . I was given a yellow room and asked to change to a blue room which was much better! Service was up and down and sometimes not very friendly however the great location made up for this deficiency.

Room Tip: Avoid the yellow and check your room first as some are very small. After a large amount of cajoling...
