Expert review of Hotel Modigliani

This good-value three-star in a quiet but central location is a real charmer.

Can I just say that this is my favourite mid-range hotel in Rome? It may not be to everyone’s taste, as a touch of eccentric quirkiness is part of its charm – but the welcome is warm, the secret back garden is a lovely summer refuge, the position is both secluded and close to the action – and if I could block-book room 602 for a few years, I’d move in here tomorrow. Belonging to a retired TV executive and his musician wife, and decorated with reproductions of works by the Italian modern painter who gives the place its name, the Modigliani is one of those hotels that inspires fierce loyalty and has a large proportion of return guests. It’s also good value for money, especially in the low season.

Location: 

On a quiet lane full of villagey shops just off busy Piazza Barberini, the hotel is an oasis of calm amidst a network of busy streets. Barberini metro station is just down the road, while Via Veneto, the Spanish Steps (Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti), the Trevi Fountain and the fashion shopping district are all a short walk away.

Bedrooms: 

There are 23 in all, plus two apartments that are ideal for families – the one that opens onto the garden courtyard is a delight. Rooms are clean and comfortably decorated in a fairly traditional style, enlivened by the Modigliani copies and by a series of framed artworks created by guests themselves. All have recently renewed orthopaedic mattresses. Rooms in the ‘02’ column (302, 402 etc) have little balconies, and the top one, 602 – sold as the ‘Little Honeymoon’ room – has an amazing view over the rooftops of Rome.

Public areas: 

There’s a comfy lounge downstairs from the lobby, but the best communal space is the little plant-edged courtyard garden out back.

Eating and drinking: 

Recently renovated, the downstairs breakfast room doubles as a daytime café with street entrance. The breakfast buffet is continental in style, but with frills – like some delicious homemade crostatas (jam tarts).

Service: 

The desk staff provide a level of concierge service and advice that is more like a five-star than a three star.
