We recently were in Rome for a week and stayed at the Hotel Artemide and it was fantastic! We got to the hotel the morning of our arrival and expected to have to store our luggage but both of our rooms were available and we got checked right in and were able to get settled. The rooms are small (but this is expected in Europe) but are very clean and beautifully designed. Their beds and pillows are heavenly and so comfortable after walking around the city all day. The in room mini-bar was also included and stocked daily with water, soda, juice, and local beer which was really nice. You could grab some water or juice to take with you in the morning and then relax with a cold one when you returned. The snacks they leave are also pretty good.
Our rates included breakfast each day which did not disappoint. Their buffet included anything you could want from pastries to eggs to various meats and cheeses - ask for bruschetta and you won't be disappointed. We had one of our favorite meals in their roof top restaurant. Make sure you make reservations if you want to eat dinner there. I had no issues during my stay however my parents had a problem with the temperature in their room one night. They called and were told someone would be up to check it but no one came. The next morning they let the front desk know and they sent someone right up. They then also delivered a huge fruit tray to their room with a hand written apology for the oversight.
The front desk staff was always friendly and very helpful. They were always happy to answer our questions - and we had a lot. They can provide some great tips about getting around the city and things to see. They also helped us make train reservations to go to Florence for a day. We made arrangements for a car to the airport to head home and they offered to back us breakfast bags since we would be leaving before breakfast. These bags were packed full of fruit, yogurt, breads, cheese, and water and much more than we expected.
The hotel is located in a pretty central location and all major sites (except the Vatican) are about a 20 minute walk. It is in a busy area with lots of shops and restaurants which could be a little noisy outside but it is very quite in the hotel. You cannot hear anything through the walls or even any other room doors opening and closing. It is that quiet. The closest subway station is Republica which is literally a 5 minute walk on the same street. Termini Station is another 10 minute walk past that but we found it was easier to take the train from Republica to Termini rather than walk the whole way.
All of the employees were great but some staff members that really stood out with their superb service were Frederica from the front desk, Sali and Maurizio in the Ambrosia restaurant, and Salvatore from the breakfast room. Seriously these guys are the best!
Overall I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel. We booked it for our trip based on the other reviews on Trip Advisor and are so glad we did. They have earned their high rating. Please just do yourself a favor and just stay there.
