The 12 Best Hotels in Monti, Rome

Salotto Monti

Just ten minutes walk from the Colosseum and close to the Piazza Venezia, Monti is a hip neighbourhood with great cafes, boutiques, bars and restaurants. Once one of Rome’s poorest neighbourhoods, Monti has followed that familiar trajectory of first being popular with artists and musicians and then becoming as hip as its residents, and now its narrow, pastel-coloured streets are fairly expensive places to live. However, the best hotels in Monti don’t follow this rule and there are some excellent affordable options here too. Our hotel experts have scanned the length and breadth of the area to bring you a collection of their favourite options in Monti. Whether you are looking for a grand five-star, a chic boutique, a family-friendly stay or something for a special occasion — there is something to suit most tastes and budgets. So why not browse through our collection to start planning your next city break?
