This artist Joan Miro inspired 48 room hotel is tucked away in the tranquil and elegant residential area of Monte Sacro, a mere 20 minutes from the whole of Rome (by bus number 36 from the nearby bus station). The hotel also has a shuttle service that can take you to the city center and Fiumicino and Ciampino airports. Guests unwind after a busy day of city sightseeing at the Ars’ fitness center and Turkish bath, watch the sun set from the Ars’ garden terrace, curl up in the Ars’ reading lounge in front of the LCD TV, or meander through the charming public gardens and small shops of Monte Sacre. Rooms are luminous and modern, nicely equipped, and immaculately maintained. Breakfast is included and guests may order in pizza from the excellent neighborhood pizzeria. Free internet!
