Hotel Des Artistes reviews from guests that stayed in 2007:
"It was our first trip to Rome, and we were delighted to stay at your hotel. Everyone was very friendly and helpful with all of our questions and needs. I will recommend your hotel to any friends that are travelling to Rome. Since we threw coins in the Trevi Fountain, we are bound to return to Rome - and definitely to Hotel Des Artistes. All the best in the new year."

"Wonderful stay. Staff and accommodations were great. Lorenzo was very helpful in assisting us when we were pickpocketed on the subway. He went out of his way to assist us in cancelling our stolen credit cards and in locating an American Express office for replacement cards. Great staff - reception, breakfast staff, and housekeeping were all #1! We'll be back! Thanks."

"Yes, it's true what people say: The hotel is very clean and the rooms are quiet (no busy street outside). Perfect location close to Termini station, excellent if you're travelling with Ryan Air for example. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast better than most low budget hotels that only serve continental breakfast. We got yoghurt, muesli and even ham and cheese! Perfect for a Swede craving a "normal" breakfast. The terrace is super."
Liza Undemar, Örebro, Sweden, 2 November 2007
"I, my mother and my sister enjoyed our stay at your hotel. The room (triple beds) and its private bathroom were excellent and very clean. We also enjoyed the breakfast, the art in the hotel, and the garden on the roof. I would like to stay at your hotel again the next time I visit Roma. The hotel location near Stazione Termini was very safe and easy to walk to. We also liked the dinner at Trattoria Mamma Angela. Thank you very much."
TS, 31 October 2007

"Looking for affordable lodging in Rome? Consider Hotel Des Artistes and it's sister properties. The rooms are cosy and clean. The staff is helpful and efficient. The location is convenient to the train station and close to a metro stop. There are ATMs , a market, and a pharmacy nearby. The immediate area is dotted with good restaurants and bars. The restaurants the hotel recommends are great and give a discount to hotel guests. All in all, this is an excellent value in Rome, and I look forward to a return visit."
Rome, USA, 15 October 2007
"We had a wonderful experience with this hotel. We were very satisfied with everything - room decoration and cleanliness, staff, location and the relaxing roof terrace. We would highly recommend this hotel."
Kathleen, USA, 13 October 2007
"Hotel des Artistes was a wonderful place to stay in Rome. The service was flawlessly polite. We stayed both in the main section as well as the annex on our return and both were spotlessly clean, lots of trattorias around and very safe. For being so close to the train station, we feel that it is really a wonderful value. Our stay couldn't have been better!"
JW, USA, 13 October 2007
"The hotel was great value for money, and the location and proximity to restaurants and public transport made the stay enjoyable. Although close to a major road, the room was quiet day and night."
Ian & Christine Aspland, Australia, 10 October 2007
"Excellent value for money and well situated for all the sites. Easy process from booking to checking out. Nice clean rooms and security was good. Would definitely come back."
Louise, England, 6 October 2007
"After a stressful hour of wrong trains and excessive heat, we reached the hotel, where thankfully, the booking process was quick and efficient. The room and ensuite were clean and comfortable. The lift was tiny though and we had to take our luggage up in 2 trips as the reception was on the 5th floor. But this was part of the character of the hotel. Des Artistes is situated nicely for all the sights of La Bella Roma and the next trip we make to Rome we will definitely stay here. We can't fault the staff from the owner, whom we met at breakfast, to the chambermaids. Thank you Des Artistes for a memorable stay."
P & L. C. Peterborough, England, 4 October 2007
"Very comfortable, helpful staff, centrally located , value for money hotel - I've stayed at least 4 times in this hotel."
Sally Kay, UK, 3 October 2007
"I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as an excellent and reasonably priced base to explore Rome. The roof garden is a lovely place to enjoy a drink and reflect on the day's sightseeing. In addition there are numerous good quality restaurants nearby."
Jeanette, UK, 25 September 2007
"You went out of your way to purchase a bottle of champagne and have it on ice for when we arrived after midnight for my wife's 40th birthday. We both enjoyed our stay and loved relaxing on your roof terrace. We will definitely recommend your hotel to our friends an would gladly stay with you again. Many thanks."
Terry Goldspink, England, 25 September 2007
"I would thoroughly recommend Hotel des Artistes to anybody travelling to Rome. The rooms are tastefully furnished and the roof garden is very well maintained. The hotel offers excellent value for money and is very central for sight seeing in Rome."
JR, England, 22 September 2007
"Only 5 minutes walk from the Termini station and within walking distance of many attractions, this hotel is well situated for sight seeing. The room we were in was quite small, as was the private shower room, but it was beautifully clean and nicely furnished. Bed linen and towels were changed every day for crisp, clean ones. Our room was at the back of the hotel with not much of an outlook, but this meant that it was very quiet and private and together with the air conditioning led to a perfect night's sleep after a busy day. Take advantage of the discount vouchers available at reception for the local restaurant/bistro. The food was reasonably priced and good."
DW, England, 21 September 2007
"I enjoy staying at Des Artistes because of its friendly staff, good services and proximity to Termini. I've stayed there twice and would stay there again!"

PR, Peterborough, England, 5 September 2007

The staff are very friendly and the hotel is very homely and welcoming. It is clean and bright, We would recommend this hotel as an ideal location for anyone who likes to do their own thing. It is not expensive at all and for the price gives an excellent service. Thank you Hotel Des Artistes."
AK, 29 August 2007
"The Hotel Des Artistes was a wonderful refuge of calm in the sometimes chaotic (especially when coming from travelling in small cities in ex-Yugoslavia) city of Roma. Our room was beautifully furnished, quiet, clean and well located in a convient yet safe area of Roma. Highly recommended to all based on the amazing value!"

A.J. Dix, England, 22 August 2007
"When I arrived I was hot and exhausted - your reception staff were extremely friendly and efficient, offering both my wife and myself drinks of iced water, which were very welcome. We were booked into our room very quickly and with the minimum of fuss. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will recommend the hotel to any of our friends visiting Rome. We will of course hope to be staying there again ourselves in the future."
R. Hill, Northern Ireland, 18 August 2007

Gilles Moreau, Canada, 18 July 2007
"We are a family of 5. Though a bit crowded, we were very appreciative of the opportunity to all stay in one room...this had been difficult to do in other European cities. Every aspect of this Hotel was very good to excellent. We look forward to staying there again on our next visit to Rome."
T Keyserling, Chapel Hill, NC, USA, 18 July 2007

W.L., USA, 12 July 2007
"This hotel was a great find. It is very close to the termini but is quiet and homey. The roof top garden is great for eating breakfast or relaxing after a long sight-seeing day. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and of our room each day. The bathroom is modern and nice. The elevator is small but works well. We would highly recommend this hotel and their staff and will return again!"
C Studer, Minnesota, USA, 6 July 2007
"Very nice place, staff was very helpful. Roof top was very nice and quiet place to get away from the city noise. Rooms were very clean and modern. Thanks for everything."
JMS, Owensboro KY USA, 4 July 2007
"My compliments to the manager. Yours is clearly a well-run operation. Clearly you are VERY busy during the high season, yet your staff is patient and accommodating. Thank you for the very good memories."
JEM, USA, 29 June 2007
"All of the staff members that assisted us during our stay were great! They didn't hesitate to offer suggestions, pick up the phone and call in reservations at restaurants and call cabs for us. Allowing a discount when paying in cash, was a great idea! I wish more hotels would do the same. Also, the room arrangements were convenient and inexpensive for three - we saved money sharing a room instead of having to book another room for my family. We felt save and secure in the hotel and it was most convenient to the train station. I would book a room here again - with no hesitation."
Leslie N., USA, 28 June 2007
"We enjoyed having a clean, quiet and friendly hotel during our visit in Rome. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The location is in a good area about 5 blocks from the train station, which made it easy to locate and catch trains, the metro, or the bus. If you compare the price to what you would get paying the same in an American hotel, you will find a much smaller room and older bath, with less amenities. However, knowing that there are differences with American hotels, you will be happy here in this price range. We would stay here again, and we will recommend it to any friends who come to Rome."
Athens, GA family, 21 June 2007
"A very advisable address. We enjoyed it, especially the silence in the room and my children loved the roof-garden."
Gila, Antonia & Pauline, Germany, 21 June 2007

PB, Austin Texas USA, 16 June 2007
"Hotel Des Artistes was fantastic! A splendid value with tremendous service. A refreshing change from the unfortunately too common "over promise, under perform" hotels. What they offer is what you get and then some! In addition, the friendly faces of the staff is a welcome change from tough looks of the city! Highly recommended!"
PK & LD & LT & DK, USA, 15 June 2007
"Great Hotel for the location and money. Great for families especially. Would recommend this hotel to any of my friends. Would stay there again on my next visit to Rome for sure."

JW, Australia, 7 May 2007

We were very impressed with the accommodations in the hotel and felt very safe with our 7 kids in the hostel rooms, just two floors below us. We booked eight beds so that their room would be exclusive to our group. It was a great place to stay, and we will certainly book there again. Staff was helpful and very friendly. Thank you."

Barb & Mike Kuplicki, Cedar Park, TX, USA, 27 April 2007
"We compliment you on the free internet which was a great help and which we did not find in more expensive hotels in Firenze or Venezia. We liked Des Artistes the best - mainly due to cleanliness, staff, breakfast (again the best of the the three) and the internet access for my son to contact his girlfriend. Well done - you combine a traditional ambience with a fresh approach."
S.M., UK, 4 April 2007
"We have stayed here three times and really like its convenience to the subway and train station. The roof garden is a pleasant place to relax after a day's sightseeing."

Although we got chance to sit on the terrace and have a drink in the sun we would like to return and enjoy the blue sky more later in the year. This a very good hotel for families who don't want to experience the usual corporate feel of many hotel chains."

JD, England, 17 February 2007
"Having read the comments on the website we thought we'd pay a little more than we'd planned and hope the place lived up to expectations, which it did.

Martha Fair, 11 January 2007
