I chose to stay here for the location and it is absolutely true that the restaurant views etc are fine. However, I had only one night here and was travelling alone on business, so they stuck me in a room the size of a matchbox immediately behind the elevator shaft. When I asked about other rooms, they said "Of course we have bigger rooms, but you're only here for one night"!!!

I'm happy to be convinced otherwise...I'm sure the other rooms are marvellous. The score would have been higher on any other count.

We had a room overlooking the ancient Roman Forum and Trajan's private villa. Excellent location, fabulous cuisine and professional and courteous staff I will definitely return.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Forum Hotel

Good Hotel!

from PradaP
Hotel Forum

This hotel was comfortable, luxurious and clean, and they had amazing Christmas decorations! The glass-covered roof top restaurant was a bonus, with great views over Rome. The rooms were well equipped and nicely furnished, although some sort of alarm started going off one night right outside the room.

Perfect location - great hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just back from 5 days in Rome where we stayed at the Forum. First thing to say is that I doubt if there is a better located hotel in the whole of Rome - you are 250 yards from the Colleseum, 150 yards from the main shopping street which takes you to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps, and not far from a wide range of restaurants. The hotel itself is beautifully presented with an instant luxury feel in the lobby - leather seats, wood panelling etc. Staff were friendly and helpful on arrival and throughout our four night stay. They were always willing to give advice on where to go, what time of day to go, where to avoid and how to get there. Our room was first class - first floor, on the corner of the hotel overlooking the ruins of the forum. Yes there is car noise but not a lot and if you want to avoid this - don't go to Rome!! The room had a luxury feel to it and was a good size and cleaned daily. The restaurant was brilliant - there was a wide range of fresh fruit and cereals for breakfast with some hot food as well. We only ate there for dinner once and it wasn't cheap, but the food and the service were brilliant.

Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this hotel - when we go back to Rome, we will be staying here.

A 2.5 Star Hotel in a 4 Star Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just returned from staying in this hotel during the first week in March. The great point about this hotel is its location. It is set off to the east, across the street and overlooking the Roman Forum. From its location, we had a five minute walk south to the Colosseum (and metro stop for traveling to Piazza di Spagna or Vatican) or north to the Piazza del Campidoglio. The Pantheon or Piazza Navona were an easy 15 minute walk further north.

This is an older hotel but not ancient. The rooms were small but not uncomfortable and the bathrooms were clean but small also; the room sizes being typical of most European hotels. The beds and furniture were old, some being borderline antiques. It turned cool every night (45 degrees) and we had a bit of experimenting before we were able to control the heat in the room. Housekeeping did a good job of cleaning the rooms each day and providing fresh towels. The lobby has character with antique furniture amid ancient relecs from the Forum. There are two small elevators to help you get up and down the six floors. The hotel staff spoke English and was very helpful. Ali, who ran the bar in the lobby, provided excellent service. Traffic around the hotel is heavy at all times and the street noise at night bothered some in our party who stayed in rooms facing the street.

The best part of the hotel is the restaurant on the roof. We went there every morning for continental breakfast overlooking a wonderful view of the Forum. We ate supper there one night. The food was OK, not great, by Roman standards (which means it was pretty darn good to us foreigners!), but expensive. If you want to eat economically, there are plenty of pizzarias and cafes a block over on the Via Cavour. Our favorite local restaurant was up the ally 100 meters from the hotel called La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali. The owner, Alessio, his son Aldo and daughter Claudia provided us with such great service and good food that we ate there several times.

All in all, you are paying for the view and location (what a location!), but I believe that it is worth it and would stay there again.

Good Hotel - Great location!

from CodgerChris
Visted with my wife 4 nights beginning March 2005. At first, (Saturday) given a back room (not strictly part of the main building, but attached, not a problem nor disappointment) - well appointed but a little dark and opening out on to an enclosed courtyard. We requested a change to a front room, 4th floor, overlooking the Forum which was available for the remaining 2-4 days. Room excellent - bright and sunny for much of the day - but very noisy through the night. The hotel's excellent location is spoilt by the fact that it is at a busy road junction. Traffic lights require vehicles to stop and start which appears to continue throughout the night. However, this isn't really a grumble, and I suppose you can't have it all ways. If you want a quiet room request one at the rear. The whole hotel is very well appointed, all rooms well furnished, and the staff helpful in every way. Continental breakfast was included and provides a good selection - I believe for most tastes. This hotel is to be recommended, but beware - research your booking method/source as tariffs may differ vastly. (Expedia appeared to offer the best rates)

Authentic Roman Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Hotel Forum and despite the very changeable weather we had a marvellous time. This hotel is not for you if you like large modern rooms, health spas, pools or gyms. However, if you want a taste of a traditional Roman hotel with great views, helpful multi-lingual staff and in a safe central location, then the Forum is hard to beat. The public areas and guest rooms are lit and furnished to provide an 'olde worlde' ambience. The furniture is mostly in an antique style and fits perfectly with the style of the hotel. Our room was on the 2nd floor and did not have the greatest view but it was clean, relatively large (by European standards), very clean and well furnished with a comfortable bed and a fab chandelier. The bathroom was large and fitted out in marble. The views from the restaurant (also the breakfast room) are magnificent. There are two lifts (elevators to some!) both are ancient but make for an interresting ride and fit perfectly with the age and style of the building. I just loved this place, it had so much character and would make a great film set! Modern hotels have their place but really do not give you the true flavour of a city - the Forum certainly does that in abundance.

Wonderful find

from letsgofly
We recently found this hotel and booked in immediately for 5 nights, it was fantastic. The staff were very helpful and pleasant especially Ali at the bar, the restaurant on the top floor has wonderful views over the Forum, we felt safe and enjoyed going back to this hotel each evening. We would recommend this hotel to anyone and the next time we visit Rome we will not hesitate to stay there again.

Room with a view!

from Irish_Rover
How great is it to wake up in the morning, throw open the shutters, and be looking at the forum?

On our second visit to (and first Christmas in) Rome, we stayed at the Hotel Forum because of its location and because of the reviews at TripAdvisor. We were completely satisfied with our choice.

Our room was on the second floor (first floor to European readers) and it overlooked the digs in front of the hotel. It was a relatively large bedroom area with a small color TV and an antique desk. There was a separate entrance foyer/closet area and a bath with a tub and shower head. Everything was very clean and we had maid service twice a day.

The multilingual hotel staff is very accommodating and helpful. The public rooms are spacious and comfortable. The dining room is on the top floor of the hotel and half of it is open air when the weather permits. Breakfast was a delight every morning as we were able to look out over the Via dei Fori Imperiali (Street of the Imperial "Forums") and see incredible history amidst modern traffic jams.

We walk wherever we go in old Rome and our most distant destinations (the Vatican, Castel SantAngelo, and the Piazza de Popolo) are about 40 minutes away.

We will return again to Rome and we will stay again at the Hotel Forum.

Would do it again

from A TripAdvisor Member
Well dont normally do this but found this site so helpful thought to return the favor...We stayed at this hotel 11/28 - 12/3 and found that the hotel was really quite a nice surprise having never been to Rome and alittle intimadated in having to pick a hotel so far away. We had no compliants with the room (larger then expected); the room was always very clean; the bathroom was a good size and water pressure/temp just fine; continental breakfast was included and there were eggs, bacon, cheese, fruit, yogurt, ceral, breads, etc, a large selection and the view was amazing seeing both the Colosseum and Roman Forum. We had a room overlooking the Forum and it was great to start the day off with that view; the Concierge while not bubbly friendly were helpful with both questions, making reservations for us, recommending resturants and sending up extra pillows and towels when asked. They even made arrangements for our cab trip back to the airport.
The best recommendation they made was for a little resturant 50 yards away from the hotel called the Taverena (?) Imperial Forum, run by a father & son (son's name is Aldo) and the food was consistently terrific and the price was good (65-80 euros for 2 pastas/meat dish, dessert and bottle wine). We went there 4 out of the 6 nights we were there! We never would have seen the place if it wasnt for the hotel.
The location to all of the sites is also a perk, we walked everywhere in Rome from this hotel as apparently everyone else who stayed here too.
So go enjoy Rome and have as much fun as we did!

Quite pleased

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Hotel Forum for 4 nights and found it a pretty good value. Fantastic location.. Right on top of Forum Romano, and about a 5-iron from the Colisseum. The lobby area-- and entire ground floor-- were fairly sumptuous. Rooms were average-sized and clean, with good maid service. Fantastic views if you're able to get one of the few rooms facing the Forum. Desk staff and concierges were ok, though more perfunctory than warm and-- as first-time visitors to the city-- we didn't feel that they particularly encouraged inquiries about what to do/ where to eat, etc.. Never ate at the hotel restaurant on the top floor, as it was prohibitively expensive, but the menu certainly looked good and the view is exceptional. Overall, we'd stay there again if we got a decent rate, but we'd probably price other places first.

Loved the Forum hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We loved this hotel. It has the best location with the view of the old city, great access to transportation, perfect staff, great size rooms, very clean, and the best part is the breakfast on the top floor restaurant, which is one of the finest restaurants in Rome. Highly recommend and will come back again

Top Local Tips for Rome

FAST FURIOUS TRAFFIC Take care crossing roads. The traffic is very heavy and crossings are ignored by most moped and car drivers. Drivers do generally stop, but not until the last second!

Eating Out Get some good recommendations for dining from someone who's been there. Most of the restaurants we ate in were in the tourist section - not very good - especially for the money!

Metro, don't be taken aback by the appearance Take the Metro. The cars on the B line may look awful, and they are, but it is safe and a great way to get around for cheap.
