"The best customer service ever"

SaritS452, Tel Aviv, Israel 16/04/2022

So, although I was afraid the hotel is not in the center and you need taxi or bus each time you want to go out, I have to say that I feel at home. Yes. The breakfast is fresh and good. I recommend it!

"Best Western ARS. A nice little getaway."

Daniel12322, London, United Kingdom 10/04/2022

My rating for this hotel is actually 3.5. The hotel is advertised as a 4* which is fair but I'd say not quite there. We had room 108 which was located on the ground floor down two small flights of stairs. The room was lovely for what we needed, but a little on the basic side. A bit more furniture would have been nice (drawers to store things etc), the air con didn't work, which wasn't too bad this time of year, but in the summer air con that pumps out hot air wouldn't have been ideal and the mini fridge didn't cool, just stayed at room temp. There was a bit of damp on the bathroom wall too which is to be expected based on the size of the bathroom, but generally the bathroom was near spotless. I would've liked some liquid had soap too as I find the bar soap to be very drying to use (personal opinion as I suffer from dry skin on my hands). The staff were lovely and very attentive from the moment we walked in, to the moment we checked and the housekeeping lady was no different. The reception staff also allowed us to leave the keys for the day while we visited the city as they do not use card keys, and the chains are like mini paperweights. We had breakfast included too within the cost, which again was very basic, just standard continental, but had everything you need to start the day. Overall the room was very clean, staff were great and the stay was nice. The hotel was also a short walk from Conca d'Oro metro station, which made getting around so much easier, but a decent pair of walking shoes is a must as the area is very hilly (so much so we opted for lime scooters to get us up most days). If you're looking for a nice little hotel for a few days away, I would definitely recommend, the area looked like it had a couple of nice local bars too and there is a small supermarket outside the metro station which is handy for picking up a few Italian snacks for the day ahead.

"Nice Hotel on the outskirts"

User 25/02/2022

The hotel has good sanitising measures in place. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. Nice bar and communal areas. Had to book a timeslot for breakfast as has only a small restaurant but a decent continental breakfast provided. Close to reasonably priced minimarkets/bakeries/bistros/pharmacies. Close to metro/bus stop into centre of Rome. Bit noisy at night with traffic. Bins overflowing and smelly on the streets outside which was a shame.

"Nice enough but better out there! "

amydB4544DK, Braughing, United Kingdom 05/11/2021

Hotel staff lovely and sorted us out quickly when the holiday company cancelled our hotel and return transfer. However it was warm (for a brit) but we couldnt work the air con so we had to open windows which meant lots of midges or fleas or something came in. We were ground floor right next to a hedge so no view (room 107). We all got bitten, my 7 year old especially bad. Breakfast was amazing, best bit really. No English TV channels or subtitles which is a pain when you have a young child . The area around the hotel is pleasant but dirty, rubbish overflowing and quite smelly. Hotel was a walk to train but you can get a 3 day pass for the metro for €18 per adult. Steps down were hard work, avoid if not able.

"On the outskirts "

samanthaf237, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 27/02/2020

We stayed here for a week. The hotel itself is basic and in desperate need of an overhaul. I tried to run a bath but the water came out of the shower head and bath tap simultaneously and the water didn't stay in the bath. I reported it and the maintenance man tried to glue a bit rubber on the plug, but came off once I tried to run another bath. The plug in the sink constantly jammed closed. The windows didn't seal well so was very cold and noisy. There was only one English TV channel (which was News) so not great for a lengthy stay. The staff however are extremely happy and accommodating. This hotel is near the bus stops and the metro line for transport in and out of the city but it's a good 25 minutes on the bus. If your looking for a cheap hotel, you have to take into account the time and money spend going back and forth. However the local coffee shops and eateries etc and amazing as they're not used to tourist so you can experience the real Italy at real prices. Perfect for me and my husband but not so great for many others. Remember to add in tourist tax (€6 per person per night) then an additional €60 for a taxi back to Ciampino Airport.

"Clean hotel but too far away"

classyscotgal, scotland 24/02/2020

Hotel ok, staff lovely, however was too far away for us from the centre of Rome. When we took into consideration what our friends paid to be more central in rome was really the same as we paid for taxis to get home later in the evening. Breakfast was fine and room very clean. Very difficult to find hotel and area not attractive with a lot of bins in street.

"Comfortable, out of centre hotel with great breakfast"

User 11/02/2020

Worth the No 90 bus trip from termini, or use metro nearby, to get a seat!, but with a walk up / down some vertiginous steps! - attentive staff, quiet rooms, great choice of items at breakfast with late fining time- will be back

"Short break"

Katie B, United Kingdom 05/02/2020

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a short break to Italy. The hotel is ideally located a 20 minute bus ride from the centre of Rome. Very friendly and helpful staff, who gave excellent information regarding cost of bus/tram/metro tickets and where to buy them, together with recommendations of local restaurants. Continental buffet breakfast was well presented with good selection. Whilst the hotel is located a distance from the central city tickets for can be purchased for 12.50euros which last 48 hours and cover all methods of public transport.

"Ars Hotel"

Allen S, Lymm, United Kingdom 21/11/2019

Stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting Rome. A nice hotel, some way from the city centre, so used the Metro to reach it. Very clean hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. A bit of a walk from the nearest Metro, so probably unsuitable for some people. However, still an enjoyable stay.

"Lovely Base for seeing Rome"

Deborah T, Grimsby, United Kingdom 09/11/2019

Good little hotel, 6-7 km from historical sites of Rome, easily accessible via bus/ metro, pay £12 Euros for 48 hr travel pass which is valid for all public transport. Compact rooms with shower, safe, tea & coffee making facilities. Lovely continental breakfast, self service plenty of choice. Very friendly and helpful reception staff, very clean throughout.

"Short break"

Ronnie B, Birmingham, United Kingdom 14/10/2019

We stayed at this Hotel for a couple of nights. Great hotel, lovely food, extremely clean, fantastic staff, especially Andrea, couldn't do enough for us, so polite. Tea making in room and hair dryer/ shampoo etc. Train station 10-15 mins wLk or €6. Trains/ trams amazing and reasonable.

"Nice Hotel"

paul s, Winchester, United Kingdom 09/10/2019

The Hotel has very good size rooms , ours had a very large bathroom which was a plus. The breakfast was good, the only fault was the distance from Rome itself,but the buses were very frequent and cheap to use so this was not realy an issue, overall very good.

"Lovely little hotel"

Carole B, Southampton, United Kingdom 09/10/2019

I loved this charming little hotel. Bit of a bus journey into Rome, but an interesting route. Spotlessly clean hotel, very helpful staff and lovely rooms- we stayed in the building at the back and it was light and quiet. There is a roof terrace - though we tried to be quiet because of the neighbours! Plus point was the scrambled egg, sausage and toast available alongside the continental breakfast at no extra cost. Would recommend this hotel.

"lovely little hotel"

User 06/10/2019

my cousin and i loved this hotel. it is spotless and well kept. the staff are amazing and extremely helpful and all spoke good english ( i have no italian). breakfast was very good and included scrambled eggs and bacon and the usual continental buffet, nothing was left to run out and the coffee was excellent. it is a 10 minute walk to the metro which is incredibly easy to use. cost is 18 euros for a 3 day unlimited pass. its a bit of a climb from the metro back to the hotel but there is a taxi rank next to the metro and costs around 6 euros. the hotel does not do evening meals but there is a good little restaurant less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel. i intend to return to rome to see everything that i missed and i fully intend to return to the ARS hotel. many thanks.

"Nice hotel, good amenities."

James A, Appley Bridge, United Kingdom 24/09/2019

Arrived very stressed as we were unable to find hotel, it's not easy to find, get a taxi. Receptionist Andrea, he was brilliant from the moment we arrived. Our room had an extra flight of stairs not accessed by the lift, we are both in our 70s, bare this in mind if you are elderly. We were offered another room, but as the original room was so nice, it had a balcony, we decided not to swap. Hotel is very clean, breakfast typical continental. This hotel is on a hill, if you are disabled or have difficulty walking this could be a problem. Thanks again Andrea for all your help.

"Daily Mail rip off"

Warren G, London, United Kingdom 17/08/2019

My wife and I booked a 7 day trip to Italy through the Daily Mail. Our stay in Rome was 3 nights at the Ars Hotel. It's like staying in Croydon to visit London. The area is run down with overflowing bins every 50 metres and broken beer bottles littering the streets. First the plus. The staff are charming and helpful and speak excellent English. Now the downside. The hotel is a 15 minute hike from the Metro and it's impossible to find first time around and nit so easy second time around in the dark. Going round and round with suitcases in the heat of the day was challenging. We were able to rescue two bemused guests whom we encountered quite by chance outside a nearby kiosk. They were using Google maps and still couldn't find it. We showed them the way. The room was tiny and the lift erratic. The power cut out on our first and only night although it seemed to be a tripped fuse We escaped to a more centrally located guest house with larger more comfortable rooms. We lost our money but our current accommodation is cheaper. The description of the situation of this hotel was very deceptive. Thank you Broadway Travel. Let's hope for better luck at the Diana Park hotel in Florence. We'll let you all know!

"Great hotel"

User 07/08/2019

This hotel is lovely and clean and the staff are very welcoming and friendly the breakfast which was included was also very nice with a nice choice of food, it's location is good as it is a five to ten minute walk to the metro

"Not a four star!"

808aseela, Ramallah, Palestinian Territories 04/08/2019

It's supposed to be a 4 stars hotel but it doesn't have the services of a four stars! It's good, clean, polite reception staff. The elevator is so slow and sometimes not working which is some kind of difficult with a baby stroller! It's far from everything in Rome, but near to a metro station.

"Flawless stay"

gabnemes, Budapest, Hungary 22/06/2019

Kind Hotel crew, clean room, good service, we were fully satisfied with the Hotel at all aspects. We also loved the location, which is around 30 minutes from city centre by public transport depending on what you plan to visit. Due to the location we have been pulled out from the busy city at the end of the day, what made our stay even more pleasant. And Rome is beautiful, my favourite capital after my Hungarian capital,Budapest. :) I strongly recommend this Hotel to stay at.

"Fantastic hotel if visiting Rome and you dont want to be in city centre"

User 08/06/2019

This hotel us everything you want. A short bus or train ride into the centre of Rome. Clean and comfortable which is what we wanted on our short trip. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day. Staff very accommodating and pleasant. Will stay again when we revisit Rome

"Great hotel in a quiet area!"

CRM352, Devon, United Kingdom 03/06/2019

My wife and I stayed at the ARS Hotel for two nights; I have to say it was very nice and although not central was easy to get around. The room was very clean and tidy but we did have a sloping ceiling in the bathroom and if you are over 6ft tall this will be a challenge! The bedroom was to the side of the hotel and was nice and quiet so no problem sleeping. The reception staff was very helpful and friendly and recommended a local restaurant Casa Claudia on our first night giving us a card for a welcome drink. The breakfast was lovely and again the staff was welcoming and helpful. The bus stop is just at the end of the main road or a 10 minute walk to the Metro underground which was easy to use. Reception staff will be more than happy to give you a map with directions so just ask. I would definitely recommend this Hotel.


Donna T, Exeter, United Kingdom 07/05/2019

Although a 30 minute bus ride from the centre of Rome this was a lovely hotel. in a quiet street about 5 minutes from the bus stop. Receptionists were friendly, the room was clean. the bed was comfortable what more could you ask for. restaurants close by. we used Casa Claudia twice a recommendation of one of the receptionist. great food.

"Trip to Rome"

Thereasa O, London, United Kingdom 24/04/2019

Stayed here over first week of Easter holidays. Is a small hotel up a small hill .nice quiet location only about 5/10 min walk from bus stops which take you to centre of Rome . They have just become part of best Western hotels . Room was a bit on small size and the shower but for time we were in the room it was fine . Bed was very comfortable . We stayed in room 211 which was nice had a little balcony . Breakfast was ok .staff were very helpful and friendly .they gave us a map and drew circles around main attractions they gave us directions of how to get to centre of Rome and some nice places to eat . Would recommend this hotel

"Nice hotel in a quiet neighborhood"

VictorNov, Toronto, Canada 14/04/2019

Nice, clean and fair priced. The room is spacious and comfortable. Not centrally located but didn't matter to me as this wasn't a holiday trip. The place is very quiet surrounded by a garden. Breakfast wasn't anything to brag about but overall I'd stay here again.
