... it was also swarming with polizia who were happy to help us get out bearings. We continued on to Piazza Colonna and headed down some classic narrow, cobblestoned streets on our way to our next big stop, the Fontana di Trevi (do I even need to translate this?!) Before I get to excited, just want to say that everywhere on this little walking tour, even if it was a small piazza or street and not some 'big name, must see' attraction was wonderful. I really loved the ...
... the Triumphal Arches (Arco di Tito and Arco di Settimio Severo, at either end of Via Sacra, the main road), some pillared buildings that are almost intact (temples, mostly), and various single or sets of pillars (more temples) and larger excavation sites (thought to be homes and shops, for example). The road/path isn't easy to walk on—it’s either large stones spaced fairly close to each other or smaller, sharper stones. I have to watch my feet a lot so I ...
Some of us had a good sleep in this morning but we still managed to get to the Colosseum at an early time where the wait was minimal and the crowds started off small. Our longest wait was to get the audio guide. I really enjoyed the colosseum and I think Tony persevered the growing crowds for me. We then walked down to the ...
... jump and NO back to Vinny Barbarini fermatta, and then the apartment. We had been reminiscing about the trip the whole way. We really want to come back. I suggested we come back for Lauri's 50th and bring the kids. We'll see. In the meantime I had to fight back Lauri's pleas to pack in the morning. We knew we couldn't do that. So we were up another hour or so packing and getting and cleaning up the apartment. Soon I was ready for bed as Lauri ...
... thinking it was the right one, including our tour manager) and when we got on we found more people from our tour. We were on the train for ages and the towns got smaller and smaller until we were in the middle of no where. Our tour manager then realised we were going the wrong way so we stopped in this country town to find the Taiwan boys from our tour looking lost there too. We went into the only shop there and asked where we were and how to get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at the Roman Forum Rome
Wenn Sie auf der Suche nach einem kleinen Luxushotel im Herzen Roms sind, das nur wenige Schritte vom Forum Romanum und dem Kolosseum entfernt liegt, dann haben Sie es gefunden. Es hat wirklich "Wow-Charakter". Teil des Hotels besteht aus Ruinen, die einem bei der Ankunft auch gezeigt werden. Wir hatten ein Standardzimmer, das zwar klein, aber dennoch sehr luxuriös eingerichtet war. Die Loungebereiche die Treppe hoch waren wunderschön und führten auf eine schöne Dachterrasse mit Blick aufs antike Rom. Die teureren Zimmer und Suiten sind zu einem wunderschönen Dachgarten raus. Das Frühstück war fabelhaft und wurde in der Lounge serviert. Wir bereuen nur, dass wir nicht länger als nur die eine Nacht geblieben sind. Wir kehren hoffentlich noch einmal zurück!
I absolutely cannot rave about this place enough. Everyone has a different idea of their favorite hotel, but for me, this is the best, hands down.
Having spent a week in Paris recently and been somewhat disapointed by the hotel (which was well reviewed on Trip Advisor) I was a little more realistic with my expectations here. However, this hotel is simply superb in pretty much every respect.
What a brilliant find. The hotel staff were most pleasant and helpful. The room was very well designed and didn't feel at all corporate. There was a very generous touch of offering snacks in the lounge upstairs between 5 and 8 pm. You could really relax in the lounge; there were a few books scattered around and the waiter always made sure you were ok without being obtrusive. There is a lovely patio area at the top of the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel. I actually preferred this side of town to stay in. The metros were both about 7 minutes walk away. Well placed for exploring Colosseum, Forum, the Baths of Caracella. It is up a small side street, the name of which does not appear on some maps.
We stayed at the Inn at the Roman Forum from Dec 30th 2006 to Jan 3rd 2007. We were on our honeymoon and this hotel helped create the romantic atmosphere we were looking for.
My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights, 19 - 22nd December and had a fantastic time. Our purpose in coming to Rome was to visit the sites relating to the Ancient city ie Forum, Capitoline and Palatine Hills, Colosseum, Circus Maximus, Pantheon and this hotel was in a great location for all of that. You could walk into the Forum within about 2 minutes, the Colosseum about 10 minutes, the Pantheon about 10 minutes. We walked everywhere. There were some excellent restaurants within 1o minutes walk and also the Colosseo metro stop. I simply can't fault it.
Great Location for Sightseeing
The staff are all very friendly, and the decor great. A free mini buffet was provided in the lounge between 5 and 8 pm. The room was beautifully furnished but unfortunately the corridor outside our door wasn't very sound proof - but have known other hotels that have been worse as it was only occassional - would have been perfect without it. Our room was a smaller one, but even so was plenty big enough for us. Room service for light meals etc.
Despite the critisism, would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as the staff made it so special. Showed us the "dig" going on in the rear of the building that they are so excited about!
Very handy for Coliseum, Forum etc and in a very quiet side street.
The lady in the reception was very helpful. She was by far the nicest person we met in all of Italy-I forgot her name but I know she was from Spain. The hotel was very clean and breakfasst was wonderful. the bell guy was extreemly sweet and kind too. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is fairly new.
We just returned from an Italy after staying two nights at the Inn at the Roman Forum. This small hotel is brand new (Jun 06) and just footsteps away from the ruins at the forum. We were greeted upon our arrival and given a welcome cocktail. The hotel staff from the front desk to the butlers were friendly, professional and attentive. We were taken to our room and we were suprised that the suite was so spacious and comfortable. We stayed in room 401 which is an executive double. This included a king size bed, plasma SAT TV ,Jacuzzi and a terrace leading into a roof top garden.
If you want a small luxury hotel in the heart of Rome,just afew steps from the Roman Forum and Coloseum then this is it.It certainly has the wow factor.Part of the Hotel property are the ruins themself which upon arrival you are shown through.Our bedroom which was standard was anything but and although small had been decorated in a style becoming of a luxury villa.The lounge areas upstairs were beautiful and opened onto a lovely rooftop courtyard with views out over ancient Rome.The more expensive rooms and suites open onto a beautiful rooftop garden.
The breakfast is fabulous and served in the lounge area.Our only regret is that we didn"t stay longer than our one night.Hopefully we will return some day!
