Marinaalekseeva stayed here on May 29, 2010 during their trip titled: Rome.
After spending the longest day of my life in Beauvais, I finally made it to Roma. The flight on Ryanair was interesting. It was remeniscent of a bad bus trip with overcrowded conditions and stinky people. Ciampino airport is slightly outside of Rome and it was a 50 euro cab fare ot meet my love at Piazza Navone, the most romantic piazza in all of …
... under the columns of the church, we walked back up the hill, to we're we are staying to pick up our cases and catch a taxi to the station, to catch the train to Naples and to meet up with lizzy and Di, I just have time to do sum food shopping down stairs in the station before hopping on the train. The trains are wonderful, we have nothing like them in Australia, the seats are soft, comfortable, leather and the train travel at 300 k's per hour. ...

The trip to pizza de popolo to find a Segway tour was not so successful. I did find individual rentals with no guide or group but the place had a different web address from the one recommended that was no where in sight. Too bad I did not have a friend or two with me as I may have tried it then anyway without the guide.

... Roma Pass at the train station, which is a great value. For only 30 Euros you get two sights free and you can skip the line, plus free transit for three days. Next, we took a bus to our hotel, which is close to the Pantheon and the Campo de' Fiori. While Rome has a metro system, it doesn't connect to a lot of key places, so we're forced to take the chaotic bus more than we'd like. We checked in, grabbed a quick bite and hit the ground running.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Forum Rome
We booked this hotel in Rome train station and Wow what a pleasent supprise!! The one we had been staying in was out of town, but this one, well you could not wish for a better placed hotel.
Very close to the coluseum and the large monument around 5 mins walk(slow) to each.
Ofering nice rooms and stunning views from the resteraunt.
Brill stay here!!!
Hotel Forum excels in many ways, and it is probably the best hotel we've ever been too. Nevertheless, we almost would have missed it because of several bad reviews on this website. Being back home, I'm still impressed very much with this place and I want to tell my version of the story. I've organized my review in several sections so that you can quickly check whatever is important to you.
Great location for your stay in Rome!
I agree with other reviews that the Hotel Forum is a perfect location for a stay in Rome. We stayed here for four nights in June and were delighted with our choice. The hotel is a bit pricey, but the location is worth the extra few dollars - we were able to walk to most popular destinations from here. The highlight was waking in the morning to a wonderful view of the old Forum and Palatine Hill, and Colliseum. The Hotel is a short walk from the Colliseum Metro, the Piazza Venezia bus terminal, a 15 minute walk from the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, and Piazza Navonna. Staff was accomodating, but not overly warm. I would stay here again, but would avoid eating in the restaurant which is over priced.
This hotel is PERFECT for sightseeing in Rome! It was only about a 5-6 euro cab ride from the train station and was very central to all the major sights. The Colosseum is only a 3-5 minute walk from the hotel and the Roman Forum is literally steps away from the front door! The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were exellent. The rooftop terrace offers a beautiful view of the forum and was a nice place to eat breakfast, enjoy the morning, and get ready for a busy day of sightseeing. Also, most organized Vatican tours pick you up at the hotel's front door which was very convenient. I would definitely recommend a stay at the Forum Hotel.
Best location in Rome
March 2004 We can not say enough about the great location. The Hotel is charming in an old world sort of way. Lots of antiques and dark wood.
Our room had a charming patio with a small table and chairs. The rooftop restaurant was lovely with great views of the Forum. (This was the only hotel we stayed in where bacon and scrambled eggs were included in the breakfast buffet.) The Colosseum was only one block away from the hotel, and the subway stop we used was just across the street. Also there were lots of inexpensive restaurants in the neighborhood with good food. The only complaint was with the staff at the front desk. They were not helpful or friendly. Fortunately we are seasoned travelors and used to making our own plans so it didnt matter.
We stayed at the Forum in August 2003. It is superbly located and the views from the rooftop restaurant and bar are spectacular. However the hotel itself is average. Our room was large enough but in need of redecoration. There was no information in the room on hotel facilities.
We really like this hotel. IT enjoys the best location in Rome, directly across the street from the Forum, and a few hundred yards from the Colisseum. The rooms are typically small, but are modern and well maintained. The rooftop restaurant offers good food and a spectacular view at night. The staff is attentive and helpful--we'll definitely stay there again!
I stayed at the Forum in August 2003 during the heat waive. The first room they gave us was small, dark and had one small double bed in it.
If you are planning on seeing sights of Rome, this hotel is the perfect location. You are literally 20 feet from the forum, about 200 yards from the coliseum and easy walk to all of the other major sites in Rome. The morning rooftop hot breakfast (included in the price of the room) offers views of the coliseum and the forum. It offers a combination of features that make it perfect. It is close to where you want to be, but it sits back far enough that it is quiet. The rooms are typical Italian hotel rooms, kind of on the small side, but still nice. If you are on vacation, you won't be spending much time in the room anyway. We didn't see any other hotels in the area that offered everything that this hotel had to offer especially when you consider the reasonable price (about $110 a night) When we go back to Rome, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
