    This was a wonderful small hotel in a perfect part of Rome. We were within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The staff was amazing and so helpful. The breakfast was the best or only real breakfast that we had in the month we have been in Italy. The rooms were small but very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lancelot Rome

    Great base for our tour of rome


    Nothing spectacular, but solidly predictable.

    Great for the kids and close enough to everything. No hassles, which is a great way to start and end every day!

    All around great


    My husband and I stayed at the Lancelot in June 2003 and were very pleased with this hotel. It was wonderfully clean and quiet and the staff was extremely helpful. The hotel is in a nice neighborhood, less than five minutes walk from the Colosseum. It is a bit farther to get to sites like the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, and the Trevi Fountain, but it's still walkable if you're up for a moderate hike. Of the five places we stayed throughout Italy and in the south of France, this one tops the list -- highly recommended!

    Gorgeous friendly hotel!


    We spent 4 days of our honeymoon at Hotel Lancelot and can honestly say that we loved every minute of it. Rome itself of course is magnificent and wonderful but we were just as in awed by the hotel! The honeymoon suite was inexpensive and absolutely gorgeous with a large sitting room and large bedroom, lovely bathroom, tiled floors and period furniture.

    (The whole hotel was decorated beautifully with marble stair case and fabulous furniture!) The balcony was perfect for relaxing whilst watching the sun go down over the Coliseum and St Peters. The picture on the website almost doesn't do it justice! The staff at the hotel were friendly and relaxed and always smiling even when we asked for drinks after hours so we had no reservations about asking them for help with taxis etc and advice. The food was excellent and everyone staying at the Lancelot seemed to be having a great time, we spoke to quite a few people who had gone back to the hotel year after year. We would recommend it to anyone of any age and will definitely stay at the hotel the next time we are in Rome!

    Wonderful Family run hotel


    My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Lancelot for our 1st anniv. We stayed Dec.29 2002-Jan.15 2003. and it was wonderful. The staff were very nice and helped when ever needed. They throw a wonderful and intimate new years eve party with home made food and it was delicious.

    The location was very nice. You can almost touch the collosuem from your room. The rooms weren't very large that's just the european way but they were very nice. I have recommended this hotel to numerous friends and they have all loved it. All round a great and peaceful hotel.

    The atmosphere was such fun.


    Fab place, great staff,lots of fun,comfortable rooms,terrific conversation at dinner time,good help and advice from staff. A good time was had by all. We are trying to book our third visit and pray they have room for us all. If not we will go to Florence!

    The Best Kept Secret in Rome


    Believe the previous reviews. They say it all. I spoke with other guests during my stay and many of them were repeaters. I told them I was going to write a review and they told me not to. We want to keep it a secret - so don't read this.

    Quiet hotel near Coliseum


    We recently spent 5 days at Hotel Lancelot (end of May 2003). We found it very comfortable and quiet. The staff all spoke English and were very friendly and helpful. The price was reasonable and an excellent buffet breakfast was provided. Most of the other guests seemed to be English.The location was excellent - on a quiet side street just a few blocks from the Colisseum and a 5 minute walk from nearest Metro station - although we found that we were able to walk to most of hte things we wanted to see. Rome is a very walkable city.

    Small clean hotel in a central location


    We loved this hotel. It is simple, clean and nice and the staff is very helpful, warm and friendly. get the rooms that open out on the balcony because those are the most beautiful. we could see the colosseum from our bedroom window and could walk up to it in 5 minutes. the breakfast they give is very generous and the people go out of their way to accomodate their guests and make them feel at home. I recommend it highly to anyone going to Rome!!!

    Hotel Lancelot... a gem in Rome


    We booked 2 nights in late Sept '02, but liked the hotel so much that we stayed an extra day. I did quite a bit of research on Rome hotels and picked Hotel Lancelot even though I was worried it would be far from the sights. We actually enjoyed the location in the low key area and a couple blocks to the Coliseum and Roman Forum. We walked to almost all the other points of interest in town (ranging 15 to 40 minute walks) and took a convenient bus to the Vatican (under $1 per person). The staff at the Lancelot all speak English and were very welcoming. We were surprised at the pleasant buzz of activity in the lobby at night, but our room was very quiet--one of my big requirements. Rooms were clean and comfortable and, at $140, affordable for this expensive town. I would definitely stay here again.

    Great value, wonderful hotel


    We stayed at the Lancelot July, 2002 and dearly loved it. It was the best value I can imagine finding in Italy!! We had a triple room and it was very large, with hardwood floors, antique furniture, large windows with beautiful wispy white curtains. The room was very light, but also had sound proofing for the windows, which made it quiet as well as dark when you need it. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food for breakfast was typical Italy fare: dried cereals, fresh fruit, pastries. No eggs or other american fare. We never dined in the dining room so I can't say anything about that.

    The neighborhood was our favorite for staying--extremely close to most of the antiquities, but quiet. It offered a lot of little restaurants--stay away from the restaurants too close to the Colosseum. Too expensive and touristy, not as good.

    In all, we were so surprised by the value for the money (especially in Europe) it sent us scrambling to our computers the second we got home looking for other travel deals to Rome!

We also met a lot of other Americans and took a crazy taxi can ride with them through the streets of Rome to ...

    ... me the boat I was put on. And I have to pause and feel grateful. Someday, after I'm dead I'm going to see something bigger. The answer to the boats will be big and shinny and I'll stand at the railing and peek over at the big truth that makes this all work. "Wow" I'll say to no one in particular. "I'll say..." someone from Bangladesh will respond. After a pause she'll continue, "That really was a good seat." "Yeah, it ...

We saw the belvedere torso which had a great impact upon Michelangelo's work as well as hundreds of other statues, tapestries and paintings, including the map gallery. After some time we finally made it to the Raphael Rooms and gazed upon the famous 'School of Athens'. In this painting he paid homage to the great ...
