Hotel in via Nazionale
Hotel Boutique Nazionale is located on a major boulevard of the Historical City Centre that perfectly embodies the Forbidden Dream that Rome has always been for everybody: A unique place that combines history, art, culture, food, hospitality and entertainment.
Thanks to its location, Hotel Boutique Nazionale is very well served by public transport (bus, tram and metro) and by private cars (taxi rank, rental services and shuttle bus). A convenient public car park open 24 hours a day, is in Via Napoli and allows you to park your car safely at a couple of blocks from the Hotel. One of the numerous PIT – Tourist Information Point, operated by the municipality of Rome, is located just opposite the Hotel, allowing easy access to all the information about monuments, events and public transport in the city.
The location of Hotel Boutique Nazionale also offers the opportunity of walking to many of the sights in Rome. This will make your stay even more comfortable: you can just take a walk and soak in the millennial history of Rome along Via dei Fori Imperiali, in the Colosseum and in Piazza Venezia with its more recently built Altare della Patria. You can go shopping in the elegant Via del Corso and stop by one of its many cafes. You can choose Michelangelo’s Renaissance in the nearby Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli or pay a homage to Bernini in the stunningly mystic Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore.
When the night falls, you can choose among the many restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues surrounding Hotel Boutique Nazionale, which dot Monti’s neighbourhood, or head to bustling Trastevere, the Jewish Ghetto and Campo dei Fiori with a short taxi or bus ride (You can catch line H at the stop NAZIONALE/PALAZZO DELLE ESPOSIZIONI, just opposite the Hotel. After midnight the night bus n8 operates on the same route all night long. When you return to the Hotel the stop is one block away from us going towards Piazza della Repubblica).
