A seasoned clientele makes this their home away from home when in Rome for diplomatic duties or a getaway with the kids. Just up the street from the Colosseum and a few blocks from lovely Villa Celimontana park (a boon for families), the Lancelot has spare, antique décor, 62 bright and immaculate rooms, and a wonderful lived-in feel. Even the standard doubles are exceptionally spacious; the triples and suites are great for longer stays; and the entire property has Wi-Fi. The lobby is a series of comfortable lounges that feel like someone’s home, and invite guest interaction. The Lancelot’s warm staff is just as diverse and multilingual, and their collective experience as international citizens of Rome is an invaluable resource for those staying here.
