The Hotel Salotto Monti Rome is located just on the edge of the Eternal City’s trendiest district, Monti. Once upon a time a run-down inner-city urban area, this characteristic neighbourhood has gained popularity over the years at a phenomenal rate and is now one of the coolest in the city. Famous for its artisan boutiques, street food, ambient cobbled lanes and piazzas, it also encircles the ancient Roman quarter of Suburra, where Julius Caesar was born.
Centrally placed between the spine roads of Via Cavour and Via Nazionale, Monti is close to the Colosseum and Imperial Roman Forums, as well as Piazza Venezia, the National Opera House and Rome’s principal train station and public transport hub, Termini.
The cheapest option is the normal train to Ostiense followed by the metro three stops to Cavour - this will take upwards of an hour. Alternatively the Leonardo Express train gets you to Termini faster and then there’s only one stop on the metro. Taxis from the airport are not much faster than that but considerably more expensive.
Outside Arrivals at Rome’s budget-airline airport there are several coach services vying for the honour of transporting you to Roma Termini which should take less than an hour depending on traffic. Again taxis are an option but not really worth the difference in price. For the more adventurous, there’s also a local bus that goes to Anagnina metro.
A taxi from Termini is much more reasonable and shouldn’t take more than about ten minutes. Alternatively you can take the metro one stop to Cavour and walk from there. But what we’d really recommend is just walk from Termini itself unless you have tons of luggage. It takes about 15 minutes tops and gives you a chance to catch your first glimpses of the city, including the majestic fountain at Piazza della Repubblica.
