Fodor's Review

This lovely hotel near Termini (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. The bathrooms are unusually elegant for a 3-star hotel and even include towel warmers, handy

for cold winter nights. 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, for a extra discount when booking your room.
