My wife and I recently celebrated our honeymoon (as well as our first trip overseas) in Rome on 29 Feb-5 Mar and picked this hotel based upon the many positive reviews it received. I can happily say that Hotel Artemide lived up to the hype and helped give us a wonderful time in Italy. From the moment we checked in when we were greeted by the gracious Valentina to the moment we checked out with the friendly Alessandro, we were treated with class and warmth. The hotel manager even sent us a bottle of merlot and mixed nuts as a honeymoon gift! The hotel itself is an older (like most facilities in Rome) but well maintained building and we did not experience any technical issues. Our suite #402 was splendid and had a balcony overlooking Via Nazionale and, although it overlooks a busy street, we did not experience any issues regarding noise because we are heavy sleepers and generally not bothered by noise (that's what living in a city does to you!). The room had many amenities including sweets, mini-fridge with complimentary water/beer/soda, and plenty of space. We also did not feel unsafe in the hotel nor surrounding areas. The neighborhood is very urban yet safe. There is also actually a McDonalds down the street for anyone who truly craves American food but there is also a mini-grocery store across the street as well. The nicest restaurant that is closest to the hotel is Doverali, which is also across the street next to the grocery store. The food there is good and the service is pleasant. However there are plenty of trattorias and less fancy ristorantes with good food nearby too. Via Nazionale is a major street so there are also shops and sights nearby as well as a major museum that had a Guggenheim exhibit while we were there. If you stay at Artemide, you are literally no more than a 15-20 min walk from many sights such as Trevi Fountain, Via Veneto, and the Colosseum so the location is good. The only thing that is somewhat far away was the Vatican, but you can take a taxi there for about 10 Euros if you don't feel like taking the 45 min walk. We did not use the Metrorail in Rome and hired a car to pick us up at the airport when we arrived to take us to the hotel (it was an excellent limo service with prices comparable to a taxi). When we were leaving to go home, we tried taking the Metrorail to Fiumicino Airport from Termini Station however we found it to be very confusing and not user-friendly so we just grabbed a taxi instead from Termini. If you do decide to use the Metrorail, the hotel is about 3-4 city blocks away, which isn't too bad but just be prepared to not get lost because it can be confusing if you are unfamiliar with the area. Also the only thing we feel we missed out on was the Terrace Restaurant/Bar on the roof of the hotel. I had read many great reviews of it but the hotel was currently refurbishing and remodeling it so it was closed unfortunately. Overall the Hotel Artemide is a jewel in Rome and I highly recommend it!
