Palazzo Montemartini, Rome, Italy
The Palazzo Montemartini has a great location very near Rome's main train station, Termini - ideal for access to other parts of Rome, elsewhere in Italy, and the airport. Originally built in 1881 as a residence, it retains some elegance and combines 19th-century art nouveau architecture with contemporary minimalist design. There's a decent restaurant and bar, a rooftop bar, impressive underground spa and a small fitness room. The 82 bedrooms range from the quite compact to sprawling suites.
Your expert reviewer
The hotel is just by Rome's main train station, Termini, meaning it's a great location for shuttle buses or trains to Fiumicino and Ciampino airports, taking around 30-45 minutes.
Nearby, you'll find the Palazzo Massimo, ancient Baths of Diocletian, and Michelangelo's Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli.
By plane: flights to Rome Leonardo da Vinci from London (2 hours 25 minutes) or Manchester (2 hours 40 minutes). The hotel is a 45-minute drive from the airport. Paid parking available nearby. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
Families, friends and business people wanting a modern, comfortable hotel with good transport connections will enjoy staying here. Despite being in such a busy part of the city, the atmosphere at the hotel - set back from the street - is serene.
Service & Facilities
The little library area to the side of the lobby (essentially a lounge area with a wall of bookshelves, and a medium-sized selection of books and magazines) looks pretty swish.

- Free Wi-Fi
Room 322 is very spacious and billed as a Junior Suite. The room is on three levels, with the shower room (with a hammam/steam room) leading off from the lounge and bed areas. The spaciousness and white décor are certainly uplifting.

Food & Drink
There's a good and rather extensive wine list. Even the cheapest white by the glass - a local Castore Bellone - at €15 is very pleasant indeed. The risotto with pecorino, pepper, lemon and raw red prawn is very tasty.
