This hotel is on hilly side street. It is 10 minute walk to Metro (underground) and then 15 minutes into central Rome. Rooms are very basic but clean. The hotel is not suitable for anyone with limited mobility.
"Nice enough hotel but too far out of city centre for us."
We spent a few nights here and generally had a pleasant stay. Ladies on reception friendly and helpful with maps and information. We arranged our own transfers which were door to door and are advised as the hotel can be hard to find, especially in the dark. Our room was fine (on the small side and not really 'superior' as described) and in the main building (good). The bathroom was small and the shower was very small. The saving grace was our small balcony overlooking the garden which was a plus point. The hotel and rooms are clean but one day our room was not cleaned until later when we had to ask them to do it. Breakfast was fine but they could run out of things and the coffee machine broke down one morning. It could get a bit hectic when lots of people came at once. There is a roof garden but bottles and glasses not cleared away when we sat there and there was a broken umbrella. We did not use the fitness equipment. The safe is too small to leave anything much larger than your passports but we carried these at all times anyway. We used both the bus and the metro to get to major sights in the city. The bus was horrific (think sardines) at most busy times and travelling in and out of the city everyday was time consuming and exhausting. We ate locally in the evenings - two good restaurants and one bad. The location of the hotel is fairly quiet but just down the road (Monte Sacro area) is busy and more noisy and not particularly attractive. Lots of sirens going off during our visit. The hotel is pleasant enough but not really a four star as we know it (in spite of having a trouser press!) It is a mistake to stay too far from the main attractions especially when time is limited so would not return for that reason. Don't forget the quite high city tax at the end of your stay - and they also charge for the bottles of water in your fridge.
"Charming hotel in the suberbs of Rome"
This was our first visit to Rome and stayed at the Ars Hotel for 4 nights. and found it charming, modern, clean and the staff were very helpful. The staff went over and above to help u, booking taxis and making sure we were not over charged. The room was spotless, with tea and coffee facilities but smaller than most places we have stayed in. My only grumble which is small, is that the hotel is housed in 2 buildings and we were a party of 4 and had 1 room in the main building and the other 2 in the second. There were a lot of steps involved in the buildings, so those less able may struggle. This hotel is situated around 15/20 minutes from Rome but the access was easy. There were plenty of buses 5 minutes away and the metro about a 10 minute walk. Just beware that getting to the Metro there are 99 steep steps to go down, or up if you are returning. We found plenty of reasonable priced restaurants and bars all within walking distance. We loved the location, we felt that the meals and drinks in the surrounding area were reasonably priced. Also finally the hotel beer prices were the cheapest we paid in Rome and the terrace was a lovely placed to relax and have a few drinks after a long day sightseeing.
Lovely hotel, staff very helpful and the choice of food at breakfast was very nice. Only down side of my trip was the hotel was a little further out of Rome centre than I thought, but it didn't spoil our trip as the bus stops were near by. Would definitely use this hotel again. Had a fantastic time in Rome plenty to see.
"Lovely hotel, quite far from centre"
Modern, clean hotel. Helpful staff. Bus stop is easy to find, we struggled with the metro a bit - probably tiredness! It is about 10-15 mins on the bus from the city but easy and cheap transport. Quiet location - would stay again.
