Amy Adejokun Section editor

A little balcony in Rome, a room with garden view... These attributes make the Ateneo Garden Palace a charming hotel. For 12 lodgings, definitely: namely a quarter of the hotel's capacity. However, the rest of the rooms (without balcony or garden view) are still attractive, due to their Liberty-style decoration (Italian Art nouveau), and the peaceful neighbourhood. Evidently, you are not close to the Forum here. A 10-minute journey on the metro will take you to ancient Rome.

    Location 6.05 /10

    On the Via dei Salentini, a small street opening onto the Via Tiburtina, on a level with the gateway of the same name. The nearest metro stop is at the Termini station (10-minute walk).
    Fiumicino airport is located 16 mi away and that of Ciampino is 9 mi away. Allow for a 45 min journey to Fiumicino, and 30 min to Ciampino.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Renovated in 2006, the Ateneo has 55 rooms, divided into the categories of "standard" and "junior suite". Of its rooms, 12 of them have a small terrace (on the ground floor), or a balcony (on higher floors) with a view of the patio. These should be your first choice. If not, the rooms have a view of the Via dei Salentini (that is not bad either) or of the sides of the building (view of the quiet semi-historical neighbourhood). As for their surface area, the junior suites are just big enough to hold an extra bed, meaning they are quite big for a city hotel (25 m²). Another thing to remember, and to be chosen over the standard rooms, which are less spacious. In terms of fittings, the furniture is of Art nouveau inspiration. The rooms have a bathroom with a bathtub (with the exception of 5 of these, with a shower), and a hair dryer. The junior suites also have a small basket of welcome products (22ml). Other features: television, air conditioning, a mini-bar, telephone and a safe.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The Ateneo Palace is a 3-storey building that resembles an ancient patrician residence. Its facade is painted yellow, with wooden shutters, and doors looking onto a corridor with Liberty decoration (Italian Art nouveau). With no exaggeration: pastel green on the walls, complementary red and green armchairs and sofas, and framed landscape and still life paintings that are decorative, without being too eye-catching. Very colourful and centre of interest in every season: the patio is an extension of the reception. You can have your breakfast here when the weather is nice (April to October). For the rest of the year, it is always possible to just spend some time here (for a cigerette break, mainly), but without parasols, or a bar service. Unless you really want to have a drink here. From April to October, however, the al frescobar is located on the panoramic terrace on the top floor. View of the area, which is calm with composite architecture. Worth trying.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Breakfast service at the hotel only. This is arranged in the form of a buffet, in a room in the basement (so, no view of the outside: as the openings are covered with opaque class and framed with curtains). Fortunately, it is possible to eat on the patio on the same level as the reception (be careful of your plate on the stairs) when the weather is nice. The dishes available are nice, but there aren't many to choose from: cereals, slices of salami and cheese, fresh fruit, croissants, bread rolls. Healthy appetites will go for seconds... In the daytime in summer (season stretching from April to October), the roof terrace opens as an al fresco bar. To be tried - having a drink on the panoramic terrace is one of the great Roman pleasures! For any other food, you can try the restaurant serving Tuscan cuisine opposite the hotel. Well-known (in the neighbourhood), with reasonable prices. However, you should also go to the Trastevere trattorias (on the other bank of the Tiber): good dinners and atmosphere guaranteed!

    To know

    There is an ancient Roman monument located just outside the hotel: the Porta Tiburtina, one of the gateways built into the Aurelien wall, a belt of fortifications 11 mi long which surrounded Rome in the 3rd Century. The road that runs through the Porta Tiburtina used to link Rome to the town of Tibur, 22 mi from there. Nowadays, Tibur is called Tivoli.
    Accommodation Advice
    Ask for one of the 12 rooms with a small terrace or balcony overlooking the patio. It has a calm view including flowerbeds, rather as if you had rented a private villa on the outskirts of Rome.

      Of the three hotels in the Bettoja chain situated on the Via Cavour, the Atlantico is the most modest, but not necessarily the cheapest. To be chosen when the other two hotels are full. If this is the case, you will be reassured by the breakfast buffet, served at the Mediterraneo, and you will be able to use the gym in the basement like the guests of the Massimo d'Azeglio.

      • Location 7.39

      Belonging to the same group as the Yes Hotel, and located in the same area, the Hotel Des Artistes is for customers passing through and who need a simple hotel near to the Termini train station. Families and groups of friends will find a place to stay here in the triple and quadruple rooms. However, you do not need to be sensitive to noise, as the hotel is badly soundproofed, and often noisy (due to customers' arrivals and departures).

      A very simple hotel, not far from Termini station, with the advantage of having been renovated recently. To be chosen when the announced prices correspond to those of the low season. The Marco Polo stands out only because of its bedrooms, which are very well taken care of. There is no original feature. What a shame there was no terrace on the roof, or no stylish decoration - that some other hotels in the same category also offer their guests.

      This is an historic hotel, which doesn't seem to have changed since it opened in 1875. As this type of hotel is disappearing and the prices are very reasonable, we shall recommend the Massimo d'Azeglio to anyone who likes old-style holidays. Well located, in the heart of the city centre: so it is not the quietest of its category, but the interior and the restaurant are so quaint that they are definitely worth spending some time in.

      This is the right choice if you're looking for a good place to stay at a lower price. Its location is both its plus point (next to Termini station) and its drawback (the hotel overlooks a very busy street). It is handy if you are arriving late, plan to leave early, or are staying on a tight budget. The rooms are simple but comfortable, and have undergone recent improvements.

      Only a short walk from the central Termini train station, the Hotel Palladium Palace has lost much of its former splendour and seems to have fallen slightly into disrepair. Nevertheless, its positioning could not be more convenient and availability is always good. An imposing building, this hotel is basic but a perfect base if you're going to spend most of your time out roaming the streets of the capital. Its four stars is a little deceiving so be sure to expect something a little more simple and prices that are not really worth what you receive.

      A central hotel, situated a stone's throw away from Termini station (ideal for train journeys to the airport), Yes opened recently and has all the necessary comforts for modern day demands. Therefore the rooms are well soundproofed, they offer a small basket of hospitality products in the bathrooms (rare in mid range hotels) and the decoration is modern. To be recommended for accommodation without spending too much.

      Opened in 2009, UNA hotel still looks brand new, both inside and out. Modern, minimalist and strangely quirky in parts (the zebra print couch in the entrance hall should give you an idea of what is in store), almost all guests will tell you that UNA is very good value for money. This is a hotel completely at odds with the ancient city around it and provides an ultra-modern alternative to most of Rome's authentically crumbling hotels. Of exceptional note are its extremely polite and attentive staff and superb bar and restaurant.

      • Location 5.67

      The Hotel de Russie is one of the grand hotels in Rome with a garden. A privilege that is all the more remarkable because this garden, which backs on to the Monte Pincio (the hill leading to the Villa Borghese Park from the Piazza del Popolo), gives the impression of being in the very heart of the countryside. Perfect for getting away from the commotion and noise of Rome (which begins at the hotel door) whilst remaining just a few minutes by foot from Piazza di Spagna and the elegant shops in the area.

      Take the winding roads through the gardens of the Villa Borghese (one of Rome's most historic villas and gardens) and you will emerge into the peaceful neighbourhood of Parioli, distinctly different from Rome's usual bustling centre. Here, flanked by large private residences, the Aldrovandi Palace hotel offers its guests an exclusive place to rest their heads. As a Leading Hotel of the World, the hotel is used to welcoming guests who expect only the very best - attentive staff, gourmet food and comfort. And this is exactly what it delivers, with elegance, style and a two-Michelin-star restaurant to boot.

      • Location 7.44

      It may be on the list of Rome's hotels but the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is quite different from your ordinary hotel experience. It cannot be confined to any kind of category, nor can it be given any stars. It is simply in a class above the rest - an aristocratic home away from home if you will. Still owned by Count Trivelli and his wife, the Villa was converted from the Count's private residence and still retains its original furniture. You must be looking for the very best in luxury accommodation (with a budget to match) to appreciate the magnificence of this 20th century property, its beautiful rooms and gardens. Rest assured though, that you will receive only the best in exclusive service and ultimate privacy. If official photos tend to exaggerate the elegance of the hotels they picture, then those of Spalletti Trivelli don't do it justice. You must be sat in the grand drawing room with a hot drink or snuggled up in the library with a book in order to really see the restored beauty of one of Rome's most exclusive addresses.

      The Regina Baglioni is one of the historical landmarks of the Via Veneto. Wander down as if to have a drink at Harry's bar (located on the same avenue): for a chic yet traditional atmosphere. Take in the luxury of early 20th Century palaces, the traditional service and the refinement of the decor. It is best suited to couples celebrating a special occasion (birthday or other celebration) to fully appreciate the hotel.

      To make sure of a pleasant stay, impress your other half with a setting that lacks neither gilding nor history, and to discover ancient (or Renaissance) Rome within walking distance of your hotel, reserve a room at the Exedra. This is a luxury hotel but it is not flashy, with attentive and discreet service. It is like living in a palace and, from June to September, you really can get a feel of the "dolce vita", with the open-air swimming-pool on the roof.

      For true boutique style, class and impeccable service, the Lord Byron is our top choice of places to stay in Rome. There is a reason that this hotel has such a loyal returning clientele and it is simply because the service is outstanding. From the moment you walk up the steps to the reception, a relaxed atmosphere washes over you. It may be out of the immediate vicinity of Rome's biggest attractions, but it is all the better for it. After a long day of absorbing the endless roman culture, it is true heaven to come back to a hotel that really feels like home.

      The Palazzo Manfredi is the lucky owner of one of the most enchanting views that Rome has to offer. Situated next to the crumbling, magnificent Colosseum, this hotel will set your mouth in a constant 'O', and not just over the view. It may not look like much from the outside, with its plain white washed walls and crumbling Roman shutters, but the understated luxury that awaits you inside is of a completely different world. The tiny hotel has only 15 rooms, making it personal, private and a wonderful place to take a few days relaxation.
