Hotel Forum Review

A longtime favorite, this converted 18th-century convent has a truly unique setting on one side of the Fori Imperiali with a cinematic view of ancient Rome across the avenue (remember, you can also drink all this in at the rooftop bar/restaurant), while the hotel itself is comfortable though considerably less exciting: the decor is traditional in the extreme, with the requisite gold wall sconces, walnut paneling, red-velvet armchairs, and Asian carpets painting the run-of-the-mill hotel lobby picture. Upstairs, the guest rooms are similarly low-key, although pleasant; suites offer velvety fabrics and some antiques. Bathrooms have been restyled using antique tiles. Little on the restaurant menu can compete with the view from this rooftop restaurant—if you get the view (many tables are not ringside, so to speak).
