A nice, friendly, clean and central hotel in Rome with a fantastic terrace view close to the colosseum. The breakfast exceeds what can be anticipated in Italy. Nice restaurants and wine bars in the neighborhood!

My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights in early November 2016. It is a very convenient hotel to the coliseum and other sites. The staff is very attentive and friendly.

A small and beautifully furnished hotel with decent sized rooms, comfortable beds, good desk space, nice choice for breakfast (only the coffee was not what you expect in Italy but reminded me more of a hotel in the USA). The common spaces are quiet and beautifully furnished and decorated. The stone floor is a matter of taste and not that... More

The hotel has a perfect location in a quiet street near Colosseum. The atmosphere is unique and very friendly. The room was nice and clean with a cosy balcony. Comfortable bed. Breakfast and dinner were delicious. The hotel is highly recommended in all aspects.

This is one of the most charming and delightful hotels we've ever stayed in while in Rome.

We stayed in the 6th floor suite. It's a very nice room with a separate sitting area. Terrace has a very nice view of Colosseum. They also serve a nice dinner where you can visit with other guests. The main floor has a large common seating area.

We loved our stay at hotel Lancelot in late September. The staff were all courteous, the food was great, and our room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. I will definitely stay there again, if I get lucky enough to return to Rome. Location is great for touring!

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
