"Roman holiday getaway."
This gem of a hotel is in the northern Roman suburb of Monte Sacro. Okay, it's not in the centre of this amazing city but there are good bus routes just two minutes walk from the hotel - you can be in the heart of Rome in 20 minutes, traffic permitting. Also a bus to the station if you're travelling elsewhere (which we did) and again 20 minutes. There's also the metro close by. I'd suggest buy a Roma pass. They are great value for travelling around and the 48 hours ones include at least 1 free museum and various concessions, depending which one you buy. The Ars is in a quiet side street with good restaurants near enough to walk if you want to stagger home after your day of sightseeing. It's a converted 1920's villa in a mostly residential area with just 48 rooms. Spotlessly clean with classy, well presented rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially when we asked about eating and transport. The breakfast pastries were amazing although there could have been more choice of fruit. We were only there for 2 nights but the towels were changed daily. Enjoyed our stay - I would definitely stay again.
OK the hotel is out of the centre but it was not a problem the bus stop is at the bottom of the road and it costs peanuts to use the public transport, the bus takes you straight to the centre. Hotel Ars is a real find, very chic, staff were excellent (compared to our hotel in Venice , Hotel Ars is first class) loved this hotel, very comfortable and great coffee!!!!!
"Decent room and decent hotel"
We recently stayed at the ARS hotel for a city break in Rome and even though the hotel was advertised as a 4 star hotel it didn't quite seem to live up to that. The hotel was neat and tidy enough, most of the '4 star' options were towards the back of the hotel and not made apparent until we headed for breakfast the next morning. The room was very basic and had a huge lack of usable electrical plug points, leaving us having to unplug the fridge and the lamp in order to use the electric. The wifi was also broken when we arrived and this was essential to our trip as we needed to plan getting around each day, although when we did ask about wifi the receptionist did give us a hotspot username and passcode so that we could use the wifi in the lobby whilst we waited to leave. Breakfast was average, there wasn't a lot of choice but it was acceptable to start the day. One massive snag that we encountered was that we weren't allowed to leave the hotel with our room key which made me quite wary from the beginning as I have never experienced this before in a hotel. The hotel is around 10 minutes from the local Metro station but in general is is quite a trek from any of the big land marks in Rome, which was quite disappointing. Overall the hotel was average, it seems to be a decent price for what you get but if I were to visit Rome again or if you visit for a sightseeing break, I would suggest staying more central in Rome.
"Really good place to stay when in Rome . . ."
located as it is down a quiet one-way street, far away from the hustle and bustle of Rome's city center. We have stayed here many times when we work in Italy and our sponsors often put us up at this hotel. The grounds are lovely, the rooms are nice--especially a few that have great views. There is a tiny, well-appointed bar and lounge area that connects the first and second buildings. Only downside for older travelers such as ourselves are the many steps and an elevator that sometimes is on the fritz. Still, breakfast is great, as well as staff. Laundromat is just down the street within easy walking distance (and the staff there are great too), several decent places to eat, and a wonderful grocery store where you can purchase great Italian wine for 4 euro a bottle as well as ready-made dinners--which we needed because at the end of the long work day all we could do is sit in our nice room and eat pizza or sandwiches with a good bottle of inexpensive but good red wine. I do wish the hotel would offer more food apart from breakfast.
"Friendly small hotel"
We spent two nights here and found it to be friendly and comfortable. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The only (slightly) negative factor is the distance from the main sights, however it is only 10 minutes from the nearest metro station.
