Was presented with this holiday by my children as a xmas present and was absolutely delighted when we arrived and saw it. The quality of the hotel could not be faulted and more than lived up to the description in their brochure that they had sent. Rooms very clean and chic, staff extremely friendly and helpful and delicious breakfasts served. Lots of major tourist attractions within walking distance. There are also good bus routes on your doorstep. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The 47 Hotel is superbly situated in central Rome and very convenient for all major tourist attractions by foot. The quality of the room was first class, the reception excellent and the breakfasts superb. The Hotel represented excellent value for money and I would recommend it to anyone.

We were delighted by our choice of the Fortyseven Hotel. Not only was it within easy walking distance to most major historical sights in Rome, but it was luxurious and had outstanding service as well. We would only recommend the best accommodations to our friends and we have recommended the Fortyseven Hotel to them.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Fortyseven Hotel

Perfect Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Perfect Location, Beautiful rooms, great service...was there over new years...will definitely stay here again when I get back to Rome.

Fabulous hotel in a great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed in this hotel over the easter weekend and couldn't fault it. The hotel is clean, modern and the staff are second to none. The rooms are generous in size as are the bathrooms. We stayed on the first floor which is nearest to traffic outside but had no problems sleeping primarily due to the electronic shutters which cut out a lot of noise. The breakfast area and the food is fantastic which is re-stocked regularly until it finishes at 10.30am. The staff were fantastic throughout our stay. They recommended restaurants for us within the different disctricts in Rome and also made the reservations for us. One restaurant in particular, Vinando's, was fabulous and would definately recommend it. One tip I would offer is to get the shuttle bus for €15 pp from the airport to the hotel as it cuts out the hassle with getting the train to Termi station and then haggling with taxi drivers to get to the hotel. We were quoted €30 to get to the hotel from Termi but after much hassle they decided to put on the meter which only cost €9 in the end.

Ultras Modern Luxury

from ROZZ
Well appointed, ultra modern Hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Room small
but stylish. We had two bathrooms in our room, that made it convenient
for us to get ready quicker in the mornings. Great complimentary Breakfast
you can customize to order. Nice lounge, and Bar area. Great location.
We would definately recommend this Hotel. We stayed there for 5 days
this March.

Special Forty Seven

from Anon
Lovely, modern, sleek, comfortable hotel next to the Forum and the Circus Maximus, on a road served by a lots of frequent busses going all over Rome. The rooms are very comfortable (we got a de-luxe one with a splendid vista of St Maria in Cosmedian an the two temples in the vicinity), and the shutters help keep the traffic noise at bay, so we slept very well. The bathroom is gorgeously appointed and the whole place has been refurbished on a very high standard and it's full of beautiful Italian modern prints and lytographs. Lots of youg staff, eager to please. Many good restaurants across the bridge, in Trastevere. All in all, very recommended.

Good, modern hotel

from bikiniamber
Stayed here for 4 nights recently. The hotel looks brand new, is very clean and nicely furnished. Staff are helpful and I have no major complaints. If I'm going to be very picky, I would make the following minor points:

1) sound proofing is not great - just hope you have quiet neighbours!
2) nice big shower - but water pressure is a bit low - spoiling what otherwise could be a great shower
3) location is relatively central (most sights are within walking distance) but there's not much in the way of bars/ restaurants in the immediate area of the hotel - although there's lots of restaurants across the bridge in Travestere

As I said, I'm being picky. Overall, this is a very good hotel and if you're looking for a pleasant, modern hotel in central Rome, you won't go far wrong with this choice.

Just what we wanted

from A TripAdvisor Member
Having had great difficulty deciding which hotel to book, based on price, location and pictures (from Expedia), we opted for the Forty Seven. As mentioned in previous reviews, the hotel is set opposite the Temple of Vesta and is near the Tiber, Boca de la Verita, Forum etc. Our room (which was pretty large) was set on the right side of the hotel and was very quiet. Only the occasional ambulance or police car could be heard. Our bathroom was small but modern and clean with a powerful shower above the bath. Breakfast was usual continental breakfast. The hotel has a private car which will take you back to the airport for 45 Euros if you don't wish to make the trip back to Termini to catch the coach. We would definitely stay here again.

Campo de Fiori is not far away and is a lovely place to sit and have a drink while watching the world go by. Just off the Campo is a restaurant called Baffetto 2. Mentioned in our guide book, we thought it would be very touristy. We got there about 10pm and the place was full of Italians - not tourists. Wine is extremely reasonable here at about 1 Euro for a quarter litre of house wine. Trastavere is also a nice area to visit for restaurants.

There are so many churches in Rome and, unlike some other Italian cities, the ones we visited did not charge for entry. If you have the time, St. Giovanni in Laterano is well worth a visit as it is Rome's principal Cathedral and the sheer scale of it inside is breathtaking. If you visit the Vatican Museum beware that it closes its gates at 12.20 at present. You don't actually have to leave the museum until after 2pm though. We made the mistake of visiting St. Peters first and then heading round to the Museum to find it closed.

Rome is a wonderful, noisy, bustling city and is well worth a visit. Our 4 nights were just not long enough to see all the sites. Make sure the soles on your shoes are thick as there is a lot of walking to be done.

Fantastic 47

from welshbabe6666
Just returned from a five night stay at this hotel, what an experience - a fantastic place. I had read lots of the reviews of the hotel on trip advisor and booked very cheaply through Expedia.

I must say I agreed with the reviews I had read. The hotel is in an excellent position and close to all the sights. We arrived late on a Saturday night and were taken to our room on the fourth floor (room 410) which had, as requested, good views and queen size bed - we booked a double deluxe room. The room was extremely clean and larger than we expected, as it's a corner room. Breakfast was OK, but of limited choice.

All the staff at reception were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They booked a restaurant for us on the first night called Vinando, which was a five minute walk from the hotel, with a great atmosphere and full of Romans, not tourists.

On our first day in Rome, the receptionist who was from Barcelona - gave us a great tourist's guide on what to see and where to go on foot; where to get the best views of the city, etc. On the Sunday all the main roads were closed to traffic, so you could walk down the middle of the road infront of the Colosseum (I think this was an experiment). Everywhere is so close it was amazing.

Do the 110 bus tour it shows you just how close all the sights are. Best places to eat are just over the bridge infront of the hotel in Travestere. Don't miss the Vatican museum (mornings only) and St Peter's, they are just jaw droppingly fantastic to see. We preferred the ceiling of the map room to that of the Sistine Chapel

The only problem I had was sleeping. (I have to say I am an extremely light sleeper, my boyfriend had no problem sleeping and didn't even notice the traffic). The hotel has a six lane cobbled road outside and the Italians seem to drive 24 hours a day; but earplugs soon sorted this. The electric shutters on the windows make the room pitch black which I loved.

Make sure if using a taxi, that they put the meter on. We got into one at Termini (where you get off the Terravision buses from the airport), who wouldn't put the meter on and when we insisted he switched it on, he threw us out; probably because he'd estimated the journey would be 25 euros, which was over three times the metered charge on a taxi that the hotel then arranged for us.

If you go to Rome, stay at the 47 hotel, it's in a great spot for sightseeing, infact the hotel is surrounded by ancient sights.

Gorgeous, new, modern hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Superb modern hotel. Located in relatively quiet neigborhood btw. the Capital and the Tiber. My g/f and I stayed in mid-January. We had the staff book our train tix from Rome to Venice - they succeeded in getting our fare at a discount rate. The breakfast spread, served from 7 to 10:30 was fresh and bountiful, a superb way to start each day. The room was a good size w/a super-comfortable king sized bed and a modern bathroom w/a specacular "rainfall" shower. We were situated on the fourth floor w/views of the Tiber and the Temple of Vesta. The hotel is close to several v. good restaurants, many of them in the old Jewish ghetto. We had a first rate experience and would return to Rome and Hotel 47 in an instant.

Great hotel, wonderful location

from TripAway7
We spent the 2004/2005 New Year weekend at the Fortyseven based on reviews on this site. We were not disappointed. The location is great - right in the middle of the ancient city beside the Forum, within easy walking distance of the restaurants in Trastevere, yet the surrounding area is quiet. All the sights are within walking distance (even the Vatican, the furthest away and about a 30 min walk). The staff at reception were very friendly, pointing out all the locations for the New Years celebrations as soon as we arrived, and offered to reserve restaurants. The rooms are not particularly large, but they are nicely furnished (lots of wood). The bathrooms are good - powerful shower, though in ours you had to climb into a bath which might be difficult for some. The rooms have electric window shutters - probably nice when it is hot and sunny but not so important in January! The breakfast was great. There is a roof terrace and an internal space that would be nice to eat in when the weather is warmer. We will definitely return.

Good Location, Friendly staff, Clean

from worldlytraveler
I stayed here from 12/26-1/2 for my 2 year anniversary through New Years..We stayed in room 504-one of 2 Suites they have at the Hotel. Room was Clean, excellent. Nice Terrace, which we wish the weather was 75 F or better so we could have used it more....Staff is helpful on directions, Taxi's, reservations...Front Desk Girl Enrica, helped us so much on New Years eve to find a place to spend time at...She must have called 4-6 places for us from 150 Euros pp, tp 1000 Euro's per person. We ended up at Les Etoiles Restuarant(Rooftop) 250 euro's pp, and it was Great! Right across from Vatican, and we had a view of all of Rome at the top at Midnight and saw of all the Fireworks...It was AWESOME! When our pay Tv did not work, they came right away to fix...Hotel is walking distance to colloseum, trastevere, forum, circus maximus, and a whole bunch of others...I can tell you a lot of things to do from sightseeing, restaurants, etc if anyone needs any help they can email me amish@msearchllc.com

I will go back when weather gets nice to this hotel, and enjoy the terrace.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Pompei - Villa Borghese Grand place. You feel like you stepped back in time, but the way they have preserved the remains of the people of pompei is disappointing. Worth the visit from Rome.Villa Borghese is a wonderful little museum.. they can be a bit snooty and the lines are long. You also have to book in advance, but once in, some of the statues and the art is amazing.

How to select restaurants Buy the Gambero Rosso or the L'Espresso Restaurant guide for Italy and or Rome. They usually give much better local reviews for all the eating places plus their top picks are not necessarily the most expensive places.

Restaurants Be very careful about dining - this is one area where we were caught out in Rome. My tip would be to check out how busy the restaurant is as it is worth waiting for a good one. We were hasty to eat one evening and went to an empty restaurant rather than wait for one we knew was good. We had a cold, undercooked dreadful meal for which we were charged a ridiculous price.
