Shuttle service was promised to be on client request but as it turned out it is available only at 8 a.m. Some room facilities and services are definetly not four star quality. I do not recommend.

I found this hotel to be exactly as described by other guests....very well run and efficient whilst maintaining a feeling of welcome to everyone.

I would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Rome. I would certainly stay here again.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Ars Hotel

This was not a good choice

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel was too far away from the centrum, and the neighborhood was a bit dodgy if you know what I mean.

There was no hot water, the room was too smal (not like on the pictures), and it was a 3 star room - not 4 star room/hotel as promised on the web.

However, the people here was nice, the common areas was nice (but small). The building itself was okay, but it is located in a residental area too far away from any of the places you want to go.

We moved to a 3 star hotel nearby the Colosseum and was very happy with that change.

They must write their own reviews....

from A TripAdvisor Member
I am currently in the Ars Hotel as we speak. They must write their own reviews because so far everything has been pretty crappy. It is a 3 star at best. It took us forever to get here. As soon as we go into the airport everyone said Woah.. your staying that far??? We rode the subway to the main rome termini and then tried to get a bus going over here. No one was of help we tried for an hour. Finally we had to take a Taxi that cost us about 40 Euro, which we wasn't as bad as the 55 Euro someone else tried to offer us. We get to the hotel and it is pretty far away. They say its air conditioned... It is but it has a little bit of cold air trickling out. They say they have wireless internet, but there isn't any in my room - thankfully there is a plug-in for lan cable so that you do get free internet, which probably the only nice thing about this hotel. The room is pretty small, which isn't a big deal. The tv is pretty small and no dvd player - again not a big deal to us. The breakfast everyone raves about is some cereal and croissants and some buns. We had better breakfast when we were staying in Athens. Also at about 9am they started doing construction under our room - they started hammering away at god knows what (for the last hour). You can hear everything outside of the room - at about 930AM I heard a strange mans voice (probably the guy hammering) like he was right next to me (yup that woke me up). Also the water goes from hot to cold and you keep having to turn it warmer and warmer (like the hot water is running out). The shower is so small if you drop something depending on your size you may or may not be able to get it. Also the toilet seat in our room is not connected and when you sit on it moves around. They also make you leave your key at the door. They have what I think you would call room service although it does cost 4 Euro to even order something and the list is like 10 things. I'm just adding in the things that we've encountered so far good/bad or whatever. Alright its not all cracked up to what the reviews say it is - but its somewhere to lay your head at night - I would had spent less or the same closer to the center of Rome next time I come here.

What a cute HOtel

from ds103n
I stayed here on May 9-14th it was a great first visit to rome. The only problem I had with the hotel was finding it initially!! After that it was smooth sailing. The rooms were soo cute and the hotel was soooo well put together!! I've been reading these reviews for months b4 my trips and I was soo happy to have made this choice (the people arent lying when they give there reviews!!!)

delightful little hotel

from marykay
The ARS Hotel is a wonderful little hotel away from the busy city. After touring all day it was so nice to get back to the hotel and head for the roof top garden to enjoy a glass a wine! The hotel is located a short distance from the city and the bus service is very convenient. The people on the bus were helpful getting us off at the right stop..a lady even walked us to the front gate. The rooms were very clean, the staff very helpful. I will book it again when I return to Rome.

t mind a bus ride

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the ARS hotel for four nights, and had a great stay. The rooms and facilities have been accurately described in previous reviews. Staff is friendly indeed. Great capuccino in the mornings, nice lobby with free access to internet, wide-screen TV, local newspapers and comfortable couches. There is also a quiet terrace with a nice view over the area.

We bought a 3-day ticket (€11) valid in all buses and subways. We used to take bus 60 from the hotel to Piazza Venetia around 9 am, it took us 25-30 minutes. The 15 minutes claimed by others is a bit optimistic, although it might be possible late in the evening. The bus ride is unbelievable (sometimes the bus nearly fell apart due to all the shaking and bumping), but one gets used to it and it is quite funny actually.

To get to the hotel from Termini, bus 90 (Express) is the one to go for. After about 10 minutes, the bus follows Via Nomentana, a long road that heads northeast out of the center. After 20-30 minutes, get out at Piazza Sempione. This is the first stop after crossing a bridge over a small river.

Follow the signs "ARS Hotel" from Piazza Sempione. It is a few-minutes walk.

On our way back to Ciampino, we decided to use the hotel's shuttle. We shared it with another couple, cost: €15 per person. Very comfortable.

So, if you don't mind spending some time in public transportation, I would definately reccommend the ARS hotel. It'll be hard to find the same quality for that price in the centre of Rome (we got the double room for €90 per night via Travelprice).

good priced hotel

from zoeyd123
We stayed at the Ars Hotel at the end of April for two nights and found it to be a very clean and comfortable hotel. The staff were friendly and the breakfast buffet was fine. For the price this is a really good hotel and only 20 minutes away from Rome city centre on the bus. I would certainly return to this hotel again.

we loved the arshotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
we stayed at the ars hotel in rome for 4 nights in March 2005. This Hotel has been extended and newly renovated to a very high standard. The rooms and facilities are excellent and were cleaned and towels changed daily. The public reception and lounge were very welcoming and had free internet access. The breakfast room was spotless and all staff wore gloves when handling food which was plentyful and of good quality. the reception staff were all very helpful as regards to use of transport in to Rome ( 15 to 20 minutes from the corner on either the number 60 or 90 bus cost 1 euro ) and told us of good restraunts to eat in at night. I can recommend this hotel even though it is not in the centre of Rome it is good value for money.

A good place near central Rome

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at ars hotel in March 2005. The hotel is clean, tidy and modern in decor. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable and continue the hotel theme. The bathrooms are a little small. Breakfast is ok, the usual selection of cold meats, pastries and fruit etc. The staff are good. They speak good english and will help with recomendations and reservations at restaurants, taxis and other general information. The hotel is not centrally located, but buses and taxis are reasonable in cost and time( a taxi cost approx 15 euros). It is possible to walk, but not a recommendation. Travelpasses costing 4 euros work for buses and metro and get you to all the sites. I would stay again. For the money it was above average. Shop around for prices, it can be a bargain.

Excellent hotel and fantastic staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
The ARS hotel was in an ideal location away from the city. It is in a very quiet residential part of the neighbourhood so if you are looking for nightlife then it will be a case of busing it back into central Rome.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was far bigger than I expected. The shower is a little snug but fine and plenty of hot water.

The absolute bonus of this hotel was the staff. They are friendly, welcoming and everybody from the reception to the breakfast caterers could not do enough for us. They were exceptional. The buffet breakfast was the ideal start for the day and the coffee - to die for.

The buses were frequent, number 90 the best route, but avoid rush hour (approx 7pm) when your 15 minute journey can take up to 45+ minutes and is very crowded and a bit too warm for comfort.

Rome is a fantastic city and this hotel made the trip all the more memorable. Book it now - you won't regret it.

The only unfortunate part of our whole experience was my meeting with a pick pocket which is entirely unconnected to this review but if I could only offer one person advice, a description of the offender, where and how it happened to prevent it from reoccuring then please feel free to email me.


from MjrMilnee
My boyfriend and I just returned from our trip after staying at the ARS for 5 nights, and it was WONDERFUL!!! My only complaint is that the hotel is very difficult to find. My advice: take a taxi your first time there, especially if you have large bags. If you take public transportation, take the 90 express bus north almost to the end of the line. After you pass over a small river, wait for the bus to turn and look for the stop by the Blockbuster on the left hand side of the street. Via Monte Altissimo is the little alley to the left of the Blockbuster and the hotel is about halfway up the street on the right. Other then that, the stay was fantastic!!! My boyfriend and I got so lost and were trudging around in the rain when we found the back entrance. The conceirge actually met us at the door and carried both of our muddy, wet bags to the desk AND to our room! The room was lovely; very clean and a great size. (I posted a picture of it) The shower is perfect for one person, but can definatly fit two :) Comfortable bed, too. Breakfast was great (the best orange juice I've ever had!) and the staff was all very friendly and extremly helpful and polite. I will absolutely recommend this hotel to friends and will stay here again. Expedia gives the cheapest rates. We got a $270/night room for less then $100/night.

Here's some tips for anyone going to Rome soon: 1)As soon as you get there, buy the Roma Guide with a map of the bus, train, and metro routes. I couldn't have lived without this!!! Also keep at least two other really, really good maps on hand. 2)Don't take buses during rush hour if you're uncomfortable standing very close to strangers. 3)Eat at the Grotte del Teatro di Pompeo. The waiters are the nicest you'll find and the food is no less then amazing!! (and cheap) 4)Stay away from touristy places that offer lasagna or spaghetti with tomato sauce as a main course. The food is bland and boring.

Thanks to everyone at Tripadvisor for their reviews! You all helped make my stay even better then what I imagined!

Top Local Tips for Rome

The Roman Soldiers at the Coloseum Watch out for the Roman Soldiers at the Coloseum who ask if they can take a photo for you - they'll ask for money from you to get your camera back.

Springtime in Rome I went at the end of March, and although there were occasional showers, I came back with a tan and an unworn jacket !

Roma Pass Get a 3 day pass from the IT tourist authority for Euro 20 and ride the buses and subways at will. It also gets you into the 1st attraction (with us, Coloseo) free and the 2nd at 1/2 price, but most importantly, in the group tour line. No long wait.
