There are many good reasons to stay here. The staff is just wonderful, willing to help with anything they can. The location is excellent for exploring the main attractions of the city. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable, with great air conditioning (and we were there during a major heat wave.) They provide free WiFi, as well as a cell phone to use to find your way around the city, with free international calls. The breakfast was good, with lots of options. There was an electric kettle and Nescafé packets in the room, as well as a mini bar that contained complimentary still and sparkling water, soft drinks, juice, a package of chips, and some biscotti. The mini bar is not restocked after the initial supply, but what a generous and welcome feature. A couple of things to mention: The bathroom sink is a little splashy and the shower is in an open area, so keep that in mind, depending on the amount of privacy you need. On the positive side, although the shower has one of those half doors that usually means water on the floor, it was the least splashy of any I have ever used and it had a very nice rain shower head. Another very minor thing is that the English language television option was primarily CNN. (Please, no! I’m on vacation.) A few tips: Across the street from the hotel is the very good Grotto (or Grottino) d’Abruzzo. We went there for our first and last meals in Rome, and we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food and very kind service. The Vatican is one of the few major attractions that is further from the hotel. The hotel called us a taxi and it was easy enough to find another taxi to come back. The cost was 13 euro going and 11 euro on the return. I mention this because the driver of an official-looking taxi told us it would be “28 euro for two” to return but fortunately having just done this route, we knew better and found a different driver. By the way, if you are going to the Vatican during high tourist season, we highly recommend one of the skip-the-line tours. We pre-booked The Roman Guy, but the hotel also has tour companies they work with. You may still be body-to-body with other visitors but it does help you navigate and understand the incredible sights you will see there. Finally, I would just like to say that we found Rome to be an amazing city, and, for the most part, full of warm and friendly people. Have fun!

This was a decent place to stay while we toured Rome. We had a tiny room for the two of us. The bathroom bothered me a little bit because of the poor placement of the sink faucet which caused water to spray out all over the counter when we washed our hands. Also, the shower showed a little bit of mold. The front desk was very helpful with any questions we had. They even helped us call a restaurant in Amalfi to help us change a reservation time. There were common areas to lounge in if we did not want to be in a room. We found a television there tuned to CNN during our stay.

Location: Is a great location for visiting the major tourist spots - with the Colosseum, Trevi, Spanish steps, etc just a 15-20min walk in various directions. Also the Roma Termini station is just a 10min walk. Is on a quieter street in the Monti neighborhood which means no disturbance from any street noise. Property/Room: Clean all through. Rooms are a decent size with all the usual amenities. First minibar fill was included in the rate when I stayed. A few minor quirks in the bathroom - sink is such that it always creates a mess around, the half door shower as always is not a good design (but none of these really caused any major issue). Staff: polite and very helpful be it with providing restaurant recommendations/reservations, directions, etc Breakfast: a good spread including cheeses, cold cuts, scrambled egg, breads and more. WiFi coverage was good all through the hotel. They do also offer to use the gym in their sister hotel a 2min walk away - that has one multipurpose machine and a treadmill so not really much for even a basic workout but then I doubt many are looking for a gym while here for a couple days.

We stayed in the penthouse (which was weirdly on the first floor) and the room was gorgeous! Plenty of room for my family of 4 to walk around and relax in. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had plenty of space for a few of us the get ready at the same time. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of space available. The front desk staff and the gentleman who worked the valet was wonderful and helpful. I would 100% stay here again! Thank you!

We stayed here for 1 night prior to a cruise. The room was ready when we arrived early at 1300 which was nice. It was like half a floor underground with not much of a view, but hat didn't really matter as you don't go to Rome to stay in your room. Furnishings were modern and the bed comfortable. Shower room was large with excellent water pressure. My only complaint ( which I told the desk on checkout ) was that there was no shelf in the shower to put ones soap and shampoo. Who designs these things? A nice touch was the free mini bar for the first day. Breakfast was quite elegant and a good choice. Location is a side street within reasonable walking distance to the major sites. Friendly and efficion reception staff. Would definitely stay again.

Truly a hidden gem in Rome! Traveled to Rome last week with our 2 teenagers and enjoyed a fantastic stay at Rome Life Hotel! The room was large, beautifully appointed with modern amenities, very comfortable beds, gorgeous bathroom, AMAZING customer service, and a stellar location! We walked everywhere! The hotel was able to check us in early upon our arrival and held our baggage for us after we checked out so we could enjoy another full day of sightseeing. There is a small rooftop bar which is lovely for an evening drink, however there is no view to speak of. Nonetheless a fantastic way to end our evenings in Rome! Will definitely return to the hotel and highly recommend to others!

This hotel is in a very nice neighbourhood in Rome and only a short walk from the main attractions. We loved the area and the daily breakfast was very good. Staff was very friendly and make great recommendations. La Carbonara was probably my favourite restaurant in all our travels in Italy and to this day I think of how great it was (recommended by the front desk staff). It gets very busy so if you want to give it a try, make reservations! Room was very clean, modern and was the perfect size. We did book a night bus tour through the front desk and I would say skip it. I had booked all our other activities prior to travelling and wanted to have an evening activity. However, the tour was not worth the money and was very odd. Cannot fault the hotel for that, but just avoid it.

state at this hotel for 6days was fantastic and staff always helpful and friendly would recommend and will be back.Thanks to...When we arrived they took us to a room with 2 single beds,so i recomende to all

Hotel is well situated on a quietish side street but within walking distance to all the sights- Colosseum 15 minutes, Pantheon 25, Spanish Steps 25. Our junior suite was at the rear. No great view but no street noise at all either. Room was large and comfortable with a big bed, 2 TVs, separate seating area with sofabed and desk. Modern and stylish decor. Breakfast plentiful with lots of variety including hot options. Cappuchino excellent. Staff were friendly and efficient. We were very pleased with Rome Life hotel. Top marks in all categories with some nice extra touches- an actual bath in the bathroom and a fridge full of complimentary drinks and snacks on arrival.

Lovely modern hotel in a great location, the staff were very friendly. When we arrived they took us to a room with 2 single beds, which they quickly changed us to a double when they realised we were a couple. 2nd night in the hairdryer blew up which we rang reception and they were happy to change straight away. Breakfast was great and the hotel was always clean Would highly recommend
