The garden is not open during the day and the manager is mean. He tried to kick us out a day early. They did not order a taxi the morning we told them we needed one to the airport. Service lousy. Would not come back, you can do much better in the area.

We stayed in Rome for three nights. The Hotel Artorius was located roughly in the center of the area we were most interested in, within convenient walking distance from ancient Rome sights, but a bit of a slog to the Vatican Museum, etc. The staff was wonderful, especially Mimo. Do not walk to the Hotel from the Rome Termini via Cavour as we did... a slightly unpleasant course. Go via Via Nazionale if you choose to walk. The low rating on room noise was due construction upstairs during our visit. This seemed to start surprisingly early in the morning, but at other times the noise levels were fine.

Loved this hotel and triple room was very spacious for Europe. Quality room and had a courtyard which was wonderful. Bathroom very nice, walk in shower which was great. Staff very friendly and very helpful. Great location, nice restaurant on other side of road which we frequented a couple of times. Breakfast room was lovely and the man who worked there was very nice. Will definitely stay there when return to Rome. A lovely place to come back to from the chaos of Rome. The only negative was Rome has been taken over by cars since I was last there which was awhile ago and the government needs to clean up some of the monuments. The pollution makes them look dirty. Huge queues to go into st peters cathedral so missed doing that

Very nice small hotel with a convenient location. Although by walking some of the Rome Landmarks eg Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona etc are a bit far, but on the other hand via Nationale is a good area for shopping and Forum Roman, Collesium are very close. Rooms are clean and secure. Area is quite. Staff is friendly. And breakfast is very tasty and fresh. Good value for money.

Unless I am doing a lot of travelling even buisnesswise - i never stayed in such a wonderful Hotel - the given service by each and every employe was much more than expected,so friendly so helpful so polite we felt like visiting friends but always treated with respect. You are realy closed to a lot of the typical attractions - and comming home is like be in heaven. There might be so many other things which i should mentioned here - but were to start... the great breakfast - the nice "garden" the perfect bathroom - i really don't know. I just can recommand this was acctually the best Hotel i ever stayed. Many thanks for making our holiday such beautiful.

A beautiful little hotel.You felt you were in Tuscany.Our room and ensuite was very large and very lovely.The staff were excellent,helpfull and accommodating at all times. The buffet breakfast was fantastic,with the best coffee in italy.Location was very central and you could easily walk everywhere. A wonderful restaurant a couple of doors down called La Taverna dei Monti capped off our stay, with the best Lobster and wonderful service and reasonable prices.

If you're looking for a clean quality room in Rome for acceptable prices then this is it. I have stayed in many places in Rome for business reasons before at much higher prices. If you don't need wellness etc. but just a good quality room then this is probably the best I could recommend.

We loved our stay at the Artorius and found all the staff to be courteous, welcoming and extremely helpful. Good room with spotless bathroom and nice breakfast area. Central location - only a few minutes walk to the Colosseum in one direction and the Trevi Fountain in the other. Plenty of good restaurants around, including on the same street. Would definitely go back.

We were just spending one night here but we wish we could have stayed more. The staff was absolutely the best and the room, with its wonderful patio/balcony, was awesome. It is located within a 10-15 minute walk of everything (except the Vatican) and there is a wonderful restaurant less than 50 yards from the hotel. I highly recommend the Artorius.

This past summer, I stayed here for my last two nights in Italy (traveled around for 2 months). At that time, there were few hotels available for a reasonable price. This is pricey (for me, anyway) BUT worth it. The staff is fantastic. Breakfast is great. Rooms are great. And you're quite close to the Colliseum. Great hub. I very much enjoyed my stay here.

As a couple visiting Rome we found the Artorius to be a perfect base from which to explore the city. Situated on a delightful street, it is an easy walk to all the sights, and Cavour metro is on its doorstep. The room was comfy and spotless, breakfast was good and the staff unfailingly friendly and helpful. In our opinion you would have to be hard to please to find any faults with this hotel - we would certainly stay again.

We were a family of 3 (parents with 19 yo) staying in a triple room. Worked well, especially enjoyed having a balcony - useful for drying clothes we washed in the bathroom basin. Generous breakfast included in the price. Air conditioned, free cable internet connection and fabulous old lifts to transport cases to the first floor. Staff very helpful with directions and taxis. Artorius is very close to Piazza Venezia, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. We also enjoyed eating at Da Ricci pizza restaurant a few streets away from the hotel. Very happy to recommend this hotel.

The staff were very welcoming, arranging our transport to and from the airport and making the whole experience so wonderful. We will certainly come back.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Artorius. The room was large and quiet, and we loved the patio. The bathroom was a little small by standards in the US, but it was very clean and modern. The staff was great and the Artorius did a great job with their breakfast offerings. We also loved the location; it was easy to walk to most sights but the hotel was not on a busy street. The early check-in (noon) is also a great feature if Rome is the first stop on your trip. The Hotel Artorius was probably the most expensive place we stayed in Italy, but Rome is an expensive place to stay and my wife and I both agree we would use the Artorius again.

We were 1 adult and 2 teens (15 and 17) in one spacious triple room. The hotel is located in the Historic district and is a 5 to 10 min walk to the nearest Metro or tourist site (Trevi Fountain). The street is quiet and the room was very quiet. There are many nice restaurants immediately nearby. The hotel comprises the first (ground) and second floor of a residential building. Security is strong with multiple keys and electronic chips required to access the rooms. The room was clean and spacious. It contained a flat screen tv and a minibar. I thought the room lighting could have been a bit brighter. Breakfast was excellent with coffee made to order, and an abundaance of pastries, cereals, fruits, yogurts, etc. (I don't remember what else there was, I sampled only a small percentage of what was available.) The staff is professional, friendly and good English is spoken. However, if you want to practice your italian they are very encouraging and patient. The overall ambiance is low key and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in staying in a bed and breakfast type place in Rome.

The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We were a little futher away from some of the popular sights than we had expected. The up side to this is that we were away from the tourist/ groups. The actual neighborhood the hotel was in was really nice--great litlle shops. We were able to use the public bus system easily. Breakfast was wonderful. The room was spacious and the bathroom was new and large. There was the smell of tobacco in the room. It is not a no-smoking hotel. As noted in other reviews--the street numbering is weird--large numbers on one side and small on the other. It was confusing to our taxi driver, but he figured it out! I would sty here again.

The location was very good for the historical centre, very close to a view of the Colosseum. The location in a back street was quiet, but there were many small restaurants and shops around. The room size was reasonable. The furnishings were traditional but fresh and smart. The bed was large and comfortable, although firm. There is a shortage of drawer space. The bathroom was very good, with a generous shower cubicle. The main problem for us in the room was the absence of tea/coffee making facilities. Also the maid was not generous with provision of soap, even removing some of our own we had started been forced to use instead (we eventually asked for some more). There is not a safety deposit box in the room, and it becomes a bother to keep taking valuables to the desk instead. However the hotel feels safe as it is a family-run establishment and it has a security door protecting the floor with the rooms. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hall and lift areas are small but very stylish. The breakfast room is somewhat makeshift in character but cheerful. The breakfasts are very good, but the selection is a little repetitive if you are staying more than a few nights, and also there are no American or English style cooked breakfast options. Overall it is a comfortable place to stay and feel at home in, and we would recommend it.

I stayed in this hotel with 2 friends of mine (ragazzi holiday)last October, and we were very satisfied, so when I went for a romantic holiday with my girl friend recently, the choice was not difficult.Artorius is a small, family run hotel in the Monti region in central Rome, walking distance from Termini, Colosseum & Forum. The hotel is situated in a quiet side street, and we feel very much at home in this hotel. Everything is nice about Artorius, the rooms, the bathrooms, the breakfast room and the staff. If you have special food requirements (gluten-free, no milk etc.) the staff is very helpful. While at Artorius, make sure to visit the bottigliera "Ai Tre Scalini" two minutes walk from the hotel.I will recommend Artorius to anyone, but of course, if you are looking for a 5 star business hotel with bar, restaurant, spa etc. you should look elsewhere. For anyone else, Artorius should fulfill your requirements 110 %! We'll be back - we have already booked room for our annual ragazzi holiday in October !

My wife an I stayed for 4 nights at the Artorius and found the hotel to be of good value but a little dearer than when we had booked it due to the performance of the Pound against the Euro. It is located on a quiet side street but is central to most places. We walked to all the main attractions and there are plenty of restraunts nearby to suit all pockets. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends of similar age as the hotel caters for older clientelle although there was one family with teenage children staying there at the same time as us. The staff were courtious and helpful and all we dealt with spoke good English. We can also recommend a very good resteraunt that is about 10 mins walk from the hotel a place called Santa Cristina. We were told about this place by the young lady in the hotel reception.

This is a long overdue review! We stayed at Artorius in March 2008 -- and would go back in a minute!! We were traveling with our three sons, and had two rooms. When we arrived at the hotel, the street was undergoing a major reconstruction. I thought we were doomed -- not sure how they did it, but those windows kept out every bit of outside noise. My husband is a light sleeper, so this was impressive. Alessandro made the boys hot cocoa every morning, and sprinkled a changing design onto the top surface -- which delighted the boys to no end. As we were staying there during St. Joseph's day, I was eager to pick up some special pastries (made only during that time of year). Alessandro's mother insisted on walking us to the bakery, about 20 mins away, because it was the best. As other reviewers have noted, nothing is too much trouble for this wonderful family who runs this terrific hotel. They were happy to speak English, but also very tolerant of my so-so Italian. Truly a gem of a place!

Location is central. 10 minute walk to the Forum and Colloseum. We returned to Rome for a 10th wedding anniversary celebration with a six year old. Rome is not the most child friendly destination in terms of attractions though kids are welcome everywhere, treated well, and are free into most attractions. I'd recomend Explora, the children's museum in Rome. There's only so many historical sights a 6 year old can take.

The friendly and efficient manner in which we were booked into the hotel set the scene for what was a very pleasurable and relaxing stay. Whilst the road that the hotel sits on is not the most salubrious in the city, the entrance is grand and the security aspect second to none. Everything is controlled by keyring and the security doors substantial. The staff were all warm and friendly and the guys that looked after you at breakfast were very efficient and accomodating. All our meagre requests were accomplished with a smile. Well done guys. Housekeeping was unobtrusive but thorough and always had a smile and a greeting when we met them. Beds are slightly on the hard side but after 'traipsing' around Rome all day I found no problem in sleeping. During our stay we certainly had no problem with noise from other guests. Whilst this hotel is not the cheapest in Rome, and only has a total of 10 bedrooms, it does make you feel special and important and so if you can afford it I would strongly recommend you pay a vist. So how would I sum up this hotel :- A surprising jewel of comfort at a price that won't break the bank.

all of what others have raved about turned out to be true, but the real jewel in the crown is the service, particularly the son, maurizio. he was amazing. (we had to leave for airport at 6:00 am, and maurizio and his father had the entire breakfast spread out for us before we left, even though we told them not to bother.) you will feel like you're staying with family. ====== the only reason i gave services a 9 was because the site says they have laundry facilities, but they don't. and the 8 for spaciousness of rooms was for the bedroom, which was smallish and did not have a chest of drawers for clothes, but the bathroom was large and new. these are very minor points. we would definitely go back anytime we visited rome.

We started our European adventure here for 3 nights. Wonderful, helpful staff. Extremely clean, almost new looking room. Hotel hard to find as taxi driver couldn't get through to drop us off. We had to walk uphill dragging our luggage. We could have taken the Metro for 2E, compared to 12E for the taxi from the Termini. Hotel is very close to Cavour Metro stop. We ended up taking the Metro back to the Termini to catch the train to Civitavecchia. Double room is lovely, although virtually no drawer space. Bathroom is tiled and shower was great. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! We were within walking distance to almost all attractions, except the Vatican. Must have walked 20 miles in 3 days. Breakfast was delightful. The best croissants ever. Also there was breakfast smoothies as well as American coffee, cappacino and expresso. Various cereals, toast, and breakfast pastries of different kinds. Also for the Europeans, there were cold cuts and cheese. We would definitely go back and stay at the Artorius in the future. Thanks to all the staff at Artorius.

What a little gem of a hotel. We usually book through Venere and this is undoubtedly one of the very best hotels that we have come across through theri website. Nothing to fault and the highest praise for the helpfulness of the staff who went out of their way to help us track down the owner of a local shop.

The hotel was fine. Sometimes they didn't give us new towels but just hung the used ones back up, or didn't give us more soap etc., but if we asked, they gave us fresh towels or what we needed. The staff were very nice and helpful. The location was really good: walking distance to a lot, and not far from the subway. What was really special about this hotel was our room had a large balcony with chairs and a table with an umbrella.

Hotel Artorius provided an excellent base for our five day stay in Rome. The hotel is very close to the main ancient Roman sites but is in a quiet backstreet with attractive boutiques and small restaurants close by. There is a very attractive courtyard area where breakfast is served but no other public areas. Our room was spotlessly clean and well-serviced during our stay though we did miss having more of view. We would certainly recommend Hotel Artorius for a stay in Rome.

A little difficult to find. When you come up our of the metro - you have to walk a block or two before it says "leoninaa". Then continue walking for 3 blocks (even though the hotel says 1) it is quite a ways. But, you are so close to the coliseum, and to other city centre sites - what a gem!

EXACTLY what we were looking for !! A quaint hotel, right in the heart of the city, living amongst the local people, in a safe area. We were travelling with our 15 years old daughter and our triple room was very spacious (by Europe's standards) and very clean. The staff was so courteous and ready to help anyway they could. We loved the breakfast area, which was outside in the back court, very private. Alexander's cappucinos and hot chocolate were a treat every morning. Lots of variety of food, tasty coissant, bread and pate. Also many good restaurants in the area. Location was excellent for sightseeing. Down the street, the Coliseum, only a 10 minute walk. We walked everywhere, to the Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, we even walked back from the Vatican (of course with many stops along the way). I would absolutely recommend the Artorius if you want to live an Italian/Roman experience, the way we did. It's a family owned hotel and they care and they take pride in their place, as they should. Don't miss the opportuntiny to see for yourself. If you're looking for the Hilton/Sheraton or big chain services, that is not the place for you or stay home.

We stayed at Hotel Artorius for 3 days prior to a cruise. It is a small, quiet, clean hotel with excellent service. The rooms were a good size and the bathrooms were all marble and very nice. Their breakfast buffet was plentiful and filling. The location was on a quiet side street near the Forum area, an easy walk to the Forum/Colisseum area. Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

This was an excellent simple hotel with a comfortable room, air conditioning and a very nice bathroom. We used the 64 bus from the Termini which I recommend and also used the same bus to the Vatican and Pantheon area. The Coloseum is an easy 5-10 walk. The room is much nicer in person than it looks on the website and the hotel service and cappacino's were excellent. The rooms are small but this is typical of a European city as is with NYC. I highly recommend this hotel and found it to be walking distance or easy bus ride to most of our destinations. The staff were generous and gracious. I highly recommend this hotel and think it is a very good value.

My husband, 6 y.o. daughter and I stayed 4 nights in this lovely hotel. Booked on Venere: All reservations in place on arrival. Though early, shown to room for a power nap before our Presto Tours (also highly recommended) adventure. The rooms are on a corridor accessible only w/a chip-key. The rooms are 1 flight (or lift) up from street. We'd a nice triple room with balcony w/ umbrella-shaded table. There's a little noise (air conditioner?) outside that occasionally pops on, but not overly annoying and undetectable inside the room. Room decor simple, but refined: No art, but roomy & with high ceilings. No chest of drawers, but ample+ space for suitcases. Bathroom of lovely travertine w/a shower w/fine pressure, hot water & plenty of light: Abundant surface area on sink for toiletries. Hotel is tucked on a peaceful street. Numbers on buildings confusing. Cab driver passed the doorway. To avoid this, look at numbers on the LEFT side of the street when arriving--Commit to memory the front of the building at the hotel's website. Hotel Artorius is across from supermarket where one can buy wine, water and snacks, for the room’s minibar. No room safe, but the family that runs the hotel was able to stow items in the vault at the desk. Breakfast in cheery courtyard was bountiful & tasty. Alessandro was friendly & helpful. Delicious capuccino and hot chocolate each day. Staff sweet and courteous. The woman who tidies the rooms deserves award for excellence! Sparklingly clean! The night man at desk didn't speak English (Italy, after all!), but eager to help, calling another to translate. Parrot at entry was pretty! Many restaurants nearby offered fine fare (though we didn't care for Jubilate: The food wasn't very good, yet was pricey). Within walking of all major sights, but a relaxing & quiet setting. Artorius is also only 5 minutes from the Colosseum on foot. Bus (hang on to wallet!) 2 blocks from hotel goes everywhere. Would return!

After making a last-minute reservation at Artorius, I really wasn't expecting the hotel to be so great. The staff is amazing, very helpful and friendly. The location is also great. As a 19 year-old female travelling alone I was a little worried about safety. The hotel is located on a really calm and safe street, with some nice restaurants nearby and so close to the Coliseum and other historical sites. My room was pretty good too, very comfortable, clean and spaceous - and so was the bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and on a really charming area, it felt like an italian movie set. I highly recommend this hotel and I'm definitely staying there again!

A GREAT BOUTIQUE HOTEL!!! This hotel is pristine,more than centrally located, charming, and a TRUE BARGAIN. The owners, a young couple, take enormouse pride in their abode and it shows in every aspect of your stay. Breakfast is wonderful and served outside in the hotel's inner courtyard under grape vines...if it rains there is an enclosed area in the same courtyard. The hotel is extremely security conscious and you will never need to have any fears. The Place is Gorgeous & refined mixing antique furnishings with the most moder in plumbing and electronics. A REAL GEM....BOOK EARLY for this is one of the greatest deals in all of Italy.

We stayed at the Artorius after coming off of a 5 star 10 day Med cruise. Upon ariving we were welcomed by the staff and helped with our luggage. We stayed in Suite 102 which was a nice size with a very large bathroom. We had a window that faced the back of the property over the courtyard and was very quiet. The stained glass window which is on the website was in our bathroom. Our friends were in Suite 106 which faced the front street, was a little noisier during the early morning hours and had a smaller bathroom but was still very nice. Suite 101 which is also in the back of the property had a small balcony which overlooked the courtyard. The entire hotel is immaculate and that was very important to us. We didn't need luxurious ammenities but this hotel was just beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was fine and the cappacino was very good as I had read. We really enjoyed sitting in the courtyard at night with a bottle of wine just relaxing after a long day of walking around Rome. The hotel is well located and we were able to walk to everything. I would stay at the Artorius again when I return to Rome and would recommend it highly to anyone.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Artorius. Our host, Alessandro, spoke good English and was very accommodating, as was the rest of the staff. Our room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spotless and had a roomy shower with a wonderful shower head. The only issue we had was not the fault of management: a guest in a room adjacent to ours came home late one night, turned the TV up loud, then apparently fell asleep because it remained on and loud for the rest of the night. We had to turn our fan on to drown out the sound. When we commented on it the next morning to Alessandro he took it seriously and the problem didn't happen again. The hotel has a wonderful outdoor breakfast area that we found very charmng. The Artorius is located just a few minutes' walk from the Metro, the bus and the Coliseum. We would definitely stay there again.

Artorius is an excellent choice for a close-in walk to location for all the ancient sites, except the Vatican - #64 bus at top of the street. The rate is good within the very high Rome prices (we paid E180/$270 per night). Cleanliness of rooms and public areas is outstanding in this small quiet family run hotel. Breakfast was very good with excellent service. The only (and important) negative was the A/C which was broken for most of the seven days of our stay in May. It was a central system, meaning all rooms got no A/C when it failed. Luckily we only needed the A/C a few of the seven days we stayed, but it was something we chose for and paid for but never received for more than a day or two. No discount was offered to reflect this however. Although an excellent choice, we would strongly recommend that if you are thinking of staying in May through Sept (high temps) that you confirm with the hotel that the system is working and, that if it fails you will receive a discount.

I want to sing the praises of the Artorius staff. We found them to be warm and friendly as well as competent and helpful. Honestly they provided us the with best service, beyond any expectations. Knowing it was a special trip for us, they provided us with fabulous welcome treats in our room. Each day we were treated with the utmost hospitality at breakfast. We were provided with thoughtful answers to our questions. Finally, on our last day, the staff arranged a taxi to take us to Termini, and when we realized that we had looked at the time wrong and had to be at the station practically immediately, they quickly arranged a new taxi and expedited getting us out. Marisimo (I hope I spelled that right)and the nice woman who ultimately saw us out: Thank you! We made it! And we were so sorry to leave you under such circumstances. We had a wonderful stay with you all and hope to send friends your way. May I also mention that the hotel was lovely, our room large, towels nice, and breakfast good and filling. We (a couple, 40 and 41) walked everywhere from the hotel. The Colosseum is close by. We definitely recommend Hotel Artorius.

I think Artorius is an excellent hotel. I just loved the personal service, kindness and gentleness of the staff. The rooms were spotless and I felt very secure in this hotel. If I gave any category less than a 10 it is because I do not know the expectations of other guests. Our room and neighborhood was very quiet. It was a relief to stay here after a long day of sightseeing in the crowds of people TIPS: We always seemed to head downhill towards the Coliseum or the Blue Line Metro stop on Via Cavour. On the last day we discovered the uphill perpendicular, primary street with all the wonderful shopping! April 25th is Liberation Day (WWII) and May 1st is another National Holiday. A lot of Europeans plan holidays during this time. Please remember that many (if not most of the museums in all Italian cities) are closed on May 1st. We made the most of our day by visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the beautiful churches. We were able to look at the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill but could not get into these sights. A wonderful church I recommend is the Gesu. I would recommend the Coliseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill approximately 1/2 mile from Artorius. The 64 bus (and many others) are near the hotel, too as is the blue line metro stop.

After reading great reviews of Hotel Artorius, I decided to book them for our Rome stay. While at first it seems a little strange to be on a narrow back street, it turned out to be a great location and a very nice hotel. We were a 10 minute walk from the Collesium and had numerous restaurants within a short walk. Half the fun was wandering up and down all the little streets not knowing what we'd find along the way, including some of the best fettucine alfredo ever!! The staff was very accomodating, especially the morning we had a tour booked at the Vatican, and accidentally overslept. They got us a taxi quickly, and we made it perfectly on time. The breakfast area out back was very cozy and peaceful - nice way to start the day. I would definitely consider Hotel Artorius if we are fortunate enough to return.
