... Shelly museum next to it!
I was disturbed by the Pope Summer palace, constructed by using the Colosseum's outer curtain wall as a quarry.
The Pantheon is awesome in the literal meaning. I am in awe of that 1900 year old engineering marvel. It is such a vast space, and has had so many ceremonial uses over the years. And it's still standing despite the greed and scorn of emperors and Popes.
The Romans really knew ...
... Climbed up the Palatine Hill to see the remains of where the Emperors of Rome had their palace. Based on the remains we saw these boys must have known how to live as what we saw was immense. Stuck our head over the walls and looked at the Circus Maximus. Walked down through the Roman Forum on the way home. Lots more old Roman buildings and other temples and walked under the Arch of Titus on the way home. Popped into the bar just around the corner to rest ...

Afterwards, we headed back home to prepare for round two of the day. Going to Vatican City requires following a specific dress code. No knees or shoulders can show and they will certainly send you away if you don't meet both requirements. When we arrived at St. Peter's Square there was a huge line, and the sun was ...

The afternoon was beginning to get cold so I finally decided on one and had a salad, pizza and glass of wine in the warmth of a little place that seemed to have some locals eating in it. I finished in time to make it out to meet Paul at the train station.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Forum Roma 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.
