Hotel Review

“Less than a 5 minute walk from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon hidden away on the second floor of a 17th-century palazzo Relais Rione Ponte is dedicated to art; this little gem always has a permanent exhibition of original modern art featuring local artists as well as the latest artists to arrive on the international scene.

Intimate and authentic this owner-run boutique hotel in Rome is the best place to stay if you're looking for charm, style and affordability. Most of the 9 en-suite rooms overlook iconic squares including Piazza di Tor Sanguigna and Piazza delle Cinque Lune and feature hypoallergenic pillows, comfy mattresses, Bose speakers and NUXE bath and body products are just some of the luxuries in the rooms. We love that towels and bedlinen are changed daily.

There's no restaurant here and breakfast is a continental affair but surrounded by cafés, restaurants and shops you'll find Relais Rione Ponte in one of the liveliest areas of the historic centre of Rome with plenty to see and do within easy walking distance. ”
