Just across the river from Castel Sant'Angelo, Suite Art Navona rises in Rome's historic centre, in one of the streets surrounding Piazza Navona.
St. Peter's Square and the Pantheon are just 15 minutes and 5 away on foot, respectively.
"Good location, comfortable rooms"
Stayed here for one night. This is a very unconventional hotel, they effectively own a few floors in a larger block of apartments, so the reception is on the 1st floor and the rooms are dotted around the rest of the building amongst people's own apartments and other hotels. There is only one lift and it's barely big enough for two people and it's quite old and rickety so getting around from street level, to reception, to your room is not exactly relaxing. Reception were very friendly and helpful, and they agreed to hold our bags on the day we checked out. The room was big enough and perfectly functional, if a little 'industrial' in its decor. The bathroom was small and quite sparse. Lighting was on the dim side and the air conditioning wasn't the best so it was quite stuffy in the room. The location is excellent, right around the corner from the Piazza Navona, and 10-15 minute walk from the Vatican. Overall I would stay here again for one night but no longer. Not relaxing enough.
"Wonderful location good clean accommodation"
Spent 3 nights at this hotel. Brilliant room , large bed huge tv spacious bathroom. Cleaned everyday and fresh towels. Location one of the bed in Rome as close to Vatican. Piazza Navona 2 minute walk away. So easy just to pop back to the room as central to all the main attractions. Highly recommended.
"Great location, bijoux rooms"
Nice rooms. Small as expected for European city centres although when we returned after a fortnight we got a bigger room with a leather armchair. All nicely appointed and classy. Brilliant location for the Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Castel Sant Angelo and some nearby backstreets crammed with restaurants and cafes. Taxi rank outside also for convenience. Reception service was great too.
"Not as expected"
These rooms look great on the Internet. The beds are hard, the pillows are awful and the lighting in the room isn't very good. Room 101 was noisy as it faced a taxi rank that operated most of the night. You are paying for the excellent location - very close but not in Navona Piazza.
"Okay room, wonderful staff, fantastic location"
My boyfriend and I chose this hotel for our three-day trip to Rome, based primarily on its location. It literally is right across the street from Piazza Navona, and the river and Vatican are a 10-15 minute walk in the opposite direction. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, so we were able to go out often for wine, small plates, and even full meals. The hotel is in such a great central location, and we were able to walk to virtually all major sights within 20-30 minutes. Villa Borghese, the Colosseum, Vatican, Spanish Steps, you name it! The hotel itself is a little tricky to find. It is located in what seems to be a residential building, and you need to buzz the front desk to be let in. We literally walked around the block with our suitcases trying to find the entrance, because it is very inconspicuous. Once we got up to the lobby (there are stairs and also a lift), the staff was wonderful. Very friendly and polite, asking questions about our hometowns and sharing stories about their own travels. Throughout our stay, the staff were helpful and took care of whatever issues we had. They also arranged for a car to pick us up on our departure date, meaning we didn't have to wait outside for a taxi and potentially get ripped off by an illegal taxi operator. If you are planning to take a taxi from the airport, I recommend calling the hotel and arranging a private car in advance. It costs only 5 Euros more than the regular flat-rate cabs, and is much more convenient. We weren't super-impressed by the room itself. It was comfortable, had working AC, and a large bathroom, but it was very plain. Not a huge deal, to be honest, but based on the lovely photos on this site, I expected something a bit nicer. We had a simple white-sheeted bed, a long table, a dressing rack, and a couple of end tables, but nothing that we couldn't have found at a much cheaper place. We just were not fans of the room, but the good news is, we didn't spend too much time inside. The only thing that really bothered me was that we did not receive a key or key card to access the building. We asked about it and were told that they do not hand keys out to hotel guests. Every single time we returned to the hotel, whether to grab a jacket or stay for the night, we had to buzz the front desk and ask to be let in. After doing this a few times, we started to feel like pests, and it kind of detracted from the whole notion of "romance in Rome." I don't understand why we could not use temporary keys or RFID cards to access the building. I think there is room for improvement at this hotel. While I don't think I would stay here again, I will say that it made an excellent home base for our first trip to Rome. I appreciate the friendly staff, who made us feel welcome in an entirely foreign city. If a simple room is all you need, this might be the place for you, but if design is important to you, either book one of the more expensive rooms, or find another hotel.
