Bed bugs and no air conditioning

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 7, 2011

DO NOT STAY HERE!
Bed bugs. The air conditioning does not work and the staff didn't care. Rude staff (I wasn't rude). Extremely small rooms. The hotel hasn't been updated in probably 50 years. Loud street noise in the room with windows closed

The hotel's rooftop bar is worth a visit, but you don't have to stay here to enjoy it. Good location with plenty of other hotels nearby.

Directions: Quarter mile from the Colosseum and Wedding Cake

Roof Garden Restaurant

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 9, 2008

They say that dinner at the Roof Garden is a rare delight as the sun sets over the Roman Forum. Well, just go for the view! Don't have dinner there. We did and regretted it. The waiters stood around chatting and neglected us. Mineral water was served warm and their response to my complaint was to stuff the bottle further into an ice bucket. The plates for the hot food were cold and almost everything was neglected. Clearly the view is the main attraction and the chef and staff can be idle without redress. However, they don't neglect the bill: which is for a top class restaurant. A place to avoid!

Perfect Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 6, 2006

This hotel is in a perfect location, as you walk out the front door, you overlook the Roman Forum. The staff was extremely helpful organizing taxi's and dinner reservations. The rooms were not huge, but were comfortable, and who spends time in their room when you are in Rome. I'm not sure what the normal price, but we got a deal through the internet, so it was a fantastic value for a perfect location.

Terrible sound proofing and unfriendly staff

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 23, 2005

I recently stayed 4 nights at Hotel Forum. Although its location is perfect and the view over the Roman Forum from the breakfast terrace is spectacular, there is a lot's of cons to this hotel.

1 - Room windows are not cutting the sound from the street and when on the coliseum side, not only do you constantly ear cars rolling on the fancy not so sound proofing square tiles that pave most of Rome streets, you also benefit from the Irish pub clientele that SIGN, TALK, SHOUT TILL 2 AM at night ... and this goes on ... 7 days a week. Fun, fun fun when you pay 150 Euro/night for a room listed as a 4 stars that looks no more than a 2 stars.

2 - Matresses are so unconfortable that I think they were originally used by Remus and Romulus ... time for hotel management to invest some money there . Fun, fun fun when you pay 150 Euro/night for a room listed as a 4 stars that looks no more than a 2 stars!

3 - Rooms and bedrooms are rather small and one need to be a yoga master to get on the toilet seat! Fun, fun fun when you pay 150 Euro/night for a room listed as a 4 stars that looks ....

4 - Front desk staff is extremely rude and unfriendly. Fun, fun fun when you pay 150 Euro/night for a room listed as a 4 stars that looks no more than a 2 stars. (Have I said that before).

5 - The best of the breakfast is the view. The food itself really is nothing special. Expected if in the end, your hotel only is a 2 stars. Too bad they claim they are a 4 stars!!!

More ... don't be fooled by the nice looking website ... it is not as nice when you get in your room!

Unique Quality: Location ... nothing more.
If you like Irish pubs ... I became aware that there is one across the street !!!!

Best View in Rome

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 13, 2004

This is a great hotel in the winter or August, when rates drop by nearly 50%. But the 300 euro price during high season for a double is tough to take. Still, they may have the best view of any hotel in Rome. There's nothing to compare with the view of the Forum and Palatine Hill gleaming with the early morning sun, while you drink your glass of fresh squeezed Sicilian orange juice in season (so red you'll think it's tomato juice!).

The top floor restaurant is also the breakfast room, and I can't think of any place I'd rather be in Rome in the morning. The caffe' latte is very good, as is the entire breakfast. (However, dinner at the restaurant is very expensive and probably not worth it, unless you're trying to impress someone with the view.)

The rooms are adequate size, the bathrooms new. If you can get one of the rooms overlooking the Imperial Forum, lucky you! You can always ask. Many rooms are furnished with antiques.

Unique Quality: The common rooms are lovely, and it has a cozy bar with comfy leather chairs where you can sip a prosecco before dinner out, while you plan your next day.

They cater to business people, so rates are often lower on the weekends.

Directions: Just off Via Cavour, one street from the Forums.

Forum Hotel - in the heart of Rome ca. 3 A.D.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 4, 2004

The Forum is a very good hotel with a wonderful roof deck - the perfect place for breakfast. The staff is very helpful (albeit at times a little stuffy due to their many business clientele). Try to get a room overlooking the forum and the ruins.

Directions: Located equidistant from the metro stops Colosseo and Cavour, very close to the Vittorio Emmanuel Monument (wedding cake).
