  • Free parking in private lot in front of hotel
  • Within a 15-minute drive or taxi ride from Ciampino Airport

Cons

  • Far from city center, and no convenient public transportation

  • No on-site restaurant

Bottom Line

Located in a suburb south of the city center, mid-range Hotel Artis is not convenient for tourists wanting to explore the sights of Rome, but is ideal for anybody visiting the University of Rome Tor Vergata, or business travelers in need of meeting and presentation space, as it is within a 15-minute drive of Ciampino Airport. Although it’s outside of town, the hotel is clean and modern,and a good value with free Wi-Fi, parking on-site, and breakfast included.

Scene

Shiny and modern inside and out

Situated in a large glass building with its own parking lot in an area surrounded by apartment buildings, Hotel Artis has a sparse but interesting decor in the lobby, including intricate wooden sculptures and a Monet-style colorful paint job on the front desk. The breakfast room is situated in the basement, and with a few modern paintings on the wall and a number of two-seat tables, manages to be bright and cheery in spite of no natural light.The meeting rooms are simple with minimal presentation equipment.  

Location

Near university, far from everything else

In Rome's Don Bosco neighborhood south of the city center, the hotel is surrounded by apartment buildings. There's a grocery store next door, and the University of Rome Tor Vergata is about a 10-minute walk away. To get to the city center via public transportation, guests need to walk to the No. 558 bus stop on Via Romanisti, about five minutes away, and take the bus to the Giaquinto stop, and then walk to the metro station Subaugusta -- from there it's about a 20-minute ride to town. All told, it’s about a 45-minute journey. La Villetta, one of Rome’s best restaurants, is within a 10-minute walk of the hotel, and Ciampino Airport is about 15 minutes away by car or taxi.

Rooms

Clean and new but lacking personality

Each of the Artis’ 70 rooms is clean and modern, equipped with free Wi-Fi and a small LCD flat-screen TV, safe, air-conditioning, mini-bar, hairdryer, and an immaculate bathroom with bidet and enclosed shower. Each room has a token piece of artwork on the wall -- interesting but not enough to make the rooms feel warm. Though clean and functional, the Standard rooms and the slightly larger Comfort rooms (which come with slippers and face cream), with their sheer curtains, black leather headboards, modern desks, chairs and lamps, have little personality. Most rooms overlook the parking lot.

Features

Free parking, breakfast, and Wi-Fi

The hotel is far from the city center, so it offers free private parking for those with cars.  A continental breakfast of yogurt, breads, cheeses, meats, coffee, tea and juice is included in the price of a room, and there's free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Three meeting rooms are convenient for business guests. Small pets are permitted at no charge, but all guests are required to pay a small, daily tourist fee.
