When we arrived we were asked if we wanted to switch from the Via Nationale location to the Via Cavour location - and were happy to find that this was even a better location! It's very central and just a few minutes walking from the Colosseum and Forums, about a 10-15 minute walk to the Termini. The owner Roberto was...

Matisse Colesseum is perfectly placed to all the major sights as the name suggests! The Colesseum literally not even ten minutes walk away and every other point of interest a good 10-15 walk away from each other and for this reason alone it's worth it!! On arrival we were greeted by Roberto who showed us around and marked out the...

Matisse Coloseum is a really great place if you're looking for an hotel or bed & breakfast in the middle of Rome. It's not to luxurious but who needs that anyway when you're all day walking in the city. For instance: the Coloseum and the Forum are just around the corner. Roberto was really nice to us, we could even...

This was my 5th stay at Matisse. Why it plunges you into the atmosphere and flavour of Rome. The accommodation adds to the atmosphere clean, safe, and spacious, within walking distance to Rome’s great monuments like the Colosseum. You will find your self surrounded by Rome’s ancient history. You’re located in the centre of Rome and just a stones throw...

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.

Luminous guestrooms and spacious private bathrooms enable guests to revel in true comfort. Located in the epicenter of ancient Rome, guests are just steps away from the grandeur of the Colosseum, and the ruins of the Imperial and Roman forums. ... more   less

“We really enjoyed the room with the window overlooking the street - it may be a little noisier than other rooms but you can just close the window and it's fine.”

“28 is a good room but keep the bathroom window closed as it backs out onto the restarant below which can be noisy.”
