Time Out says
Uniquely styled rooms above two in-demand eateries in the cool Monti neighborhood close to the Colosseum
With their bright jewel tone color schemes and custom-made furniture, it is hard to imagine that Roma Luxus’ 30 rooms were once a part of a convent. The flashy hotel doesn’t just keep the design in the bedroom, splashing modern art and installations throughout the common areas. The small hotel also has a private terrace and a pay-for-use spa with a Jacuzzi, sauna and Turkish bath. And while most hotel restaurants should be avoided at all costs, Roma Luxus shares real estate with not one but two amazing eateries (Madre and Yugo), both run by young Michelin-starred chefs.
Neighborhood: Up the street from the Colosseum, Monti has its own Roman flair with ivy-draped pedestrianized streets and a lively central piazza. The bohemian quarter also boasts cool vintage shops, a budding street food scene and popular cocktail bars.
Al Vino Al Vino: For wine by the glass and appetizers made by the owner’s mother
Trajan’s Market: For Roman ruins that aren’t overrun with crowds
Via del Boschetto: For browsing retro furniture shops and one-of-a-kind boutiques
Time Out tip: Noise from revelers can be an issue thanks to the popularity of the two popular restaurants below the hotel. For peaceful slumber, ask for a room on the south side of the building.
