Fodor's Review

This lovely hotel near Termini station (really in Castro Pretorio rather than Repubblica) is a perfect example of a family establishment: the three Riccioni brothers put their hearts and souls into running the place, while their parents oversee housekeeping and maintenance. The hotel is decorated with 20th-century paintings, mahogany furniture, and handsome fabrics in the guest rooms, which are small and functional, but work well for travelers who don't plan on spending all day in their rooms. Des Artistes hasn't forgotten its roots, though: there's also a "hostel" floor with 11 simpler rooms for travelers on a budget. Become a fan of the hotel on Facebook or pay in cash, and you'll receive an extra discount when booking your room.
