view web site ›'s insider take:

A foliage-draped door on a pedestrian alley reminiscent of a Tuscan village opens into one of Rome's most attractive new designer-boutique offerings. The Forum's 12 bedrooms have cascading brocades around four-poster beds, and marble cladding in bathrooms supplied with luxurious toiletries. You'll eat breakfast on a fourth-floor terrace with a heart-stopping view across the Roman Forum. Behind the terrace, two gorgeous rooms back onto a little high-walled garden; book them together as a suite to have your own private hideaway. A recently excavated cryptoporticus in the cellar gives the place an exclusive, ancient feel. The Forum location is the latest addition to a stable of hotels that includes the Inn at the Spanish Steps on chic Via Condotti and its four-room ultraluxe annex, View at the Spanish Steps.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

A daringly renovated seventeenth-century building constructed over the ancient part of Rome (on the ground floor is a fascinating vaulted passageway to Trajan's Market), the Inn at the Roman Forum shows off a striking decor of walls covered in silk moiré, heavy bronze drapes, parquet floors, and sculptures and paintings of ancient aristocrats. The 12 rooms are outfitted with four-poster beds swathed in shimmering organza, fiery-orange satin pillows strewn on silk bedspreads, and oversized shaded lamps suspended from coffered wood ceilings. There's a rooftop breakfast/cocktail terrace, and the fourth floor's three intimate public rooms are the heart of the hotel. The only downside is that, as with many boutique hotels, the entire staff seem to consist of the front desk person and a rarely seen factotum.
