A peaceful haven
at a stone’s throw
from the Colosseum


The Hotel Lancelot is a charming and friendly three star Hotel at a short stroll from the
Colosseum and Roman Forum. Appreciated by those visitors who prefer a warm welcome and attentive personal services.

Snugly tucked away in the quiet and green Celio residential neighbourhood, the Lancelot is the ideal location for both the tourist and the business traveller that seek a Hotel with personality and atmosphere, where the Staff greets you with a smile and is dedicated to ensuring that you enjoy your stay in Rome.

Many important historical and religious sites are within easy walking distance and plenty of cafés, wine bars and trattorie that give the neighbourhood a lively and authentic “local” feel.

Our Staff will gladly offer insider tips for interesting itineraries, directions and suggestions to help you experience Rome at its best.


“The family-run Hotel Lancelot is just blocks from the Colosseum—but a world away from the throngs of tourists and traffic that surround it. It’s a delightful throwback to a more genteel era of travel, when the pace was slower, the hospitality warmer and “connection” meant newly forged friendships rather than Wi-Fi.”
