Dream of Italy Rome Review: FortySeven Hotel
Another Addition to Rome’s Hip Hotel Line-Up
Location is key to choosing a hotel in Rome. Those who like peace and quiet might choose to stay in one of the Vatican’s quiet neighborhoods or in the residential section of Pairoli, near Villa Borghese. Those who want to be close to the action might choose a hotel near the Spanish Steps or Piazza Navona. Those who want to be in the center of ancient Rome now have a new place to stay – the 4-star FortySeven Hotel is just across from between Circo Massimo and Teatro Marcello and a few minutes walk to the Forum and the Colosseum.
FortySeven Hotel also offers “the hip factor,” in terms of location and design. Just across a bridge from the trendy Trastevere, the hotel features 61 guest rooms and suites, each dedicated to a 20th century Italian artist such as Modigliani or Guccione. Rooms also feature Art Deco furniture, marble bathrooms and wireless Internet access. Although there’s no restaurant in the hotel, the rooftop bar offers stunning views of the Eternal City. The staff is friendly and eager-to-please. Rates range from 160 to 400 euros per night, including breakfast. Via Petroselli, 47; (39) 06 6787816
