Insider Tip
  • The immediate area is rich in tiny art galleries exhibiting the work of young local artists; at least three venues are within two blocks of the hotel. On via dei SS. Quattro behind the hotel are a number of family-run trattoria - many apparently untouched by the commercial demands of the area - as well as an old-fashioned chocolatier and an antiquarian bookstore.
Hotel Overview
  • Blocks from Colosseum
    Housed in an early 19th-century building in the heart of Imperial Rome, this hotel is two blocks from the Colosseum.
  • Modern style
    65 rooms are decorated in classic contemporary style, with warm tones of ochre, sand, and saffron; all have minibars.
  • Rooftop terrace
    After perusing the hotel's unique collection of contemporary artwork, relax with an apéritif on the rooftop terrace, above the bustle of Rome traffic.
What to Expect:
  • Dating from the early 20th century, this white-brick building fringed with palm trees stands opposite the fourth-century SS. Quattro Coronati Church. A wall of black roses by Italian artist Paolo Canevari makes a dramatic statement inside, while colorful art displayed in the rest of the marble lobby complements the lilacs and blues of the lounge area. The hotel hosts mainly businesspeople during the week and vacationers on weekends.
Amenity Highlights:
  • The glass-topped, black-marble Centrum Bar serves light meals, snacks, and cocktails, as well as 31 brands of whiskey and four brands of Cuban cigars. Drinks and a light, a la carte menu are also served on the two roof-top terraces, open year-round. One offers views of the Colosseum; the other, lined with lemon trees, olive trees, and rambling roses, overlooks the SS. Quattro Coronati Church.
