The staff were friendly and the rooms although a bit dated were still very clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is spot on.
Only thing was they did not have an iron. We had to go to the local laundrette.
Great value for money in a pleasing but basic hotel room. Standard European breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean and tidy. The location is excellent, three minute walk to the Colosseum and Metro, great selection of restaurants within a minute's walk.

Gloria was the best host we've ever met and the room was in perfect condition. The place is new so all the facilities in the room are new. She even provided Nespresso machines in every room, as well as a couple of canned drinks in the mini-fridge. Shower was amazing with the overhead shower and although breakfast was simple (bread&jam,coffee,tea, cakes), it was nice of Gloria to provide breakfast as it filled us up to start the day!
Gloria was extremely helpful throughout our stay and she was a huge reason why we loved the Rome trip so much. Would definitely recommend staying in Lanza 111 as it is surprisingly close to the Colosseum (maybe a 7-10min walk), and from the Colosseum it is fairly easy to access places such as the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon etc by foot.
P.S. The small pizzeria opposite the hotel makes pretty good pizzas. We tried the truffle and cheese pizza and they made it fresh on the spot for us!
We stayed at Hotel de Monti for 6 nights during our first visit to Rome. It felt like we were staying in an apartment (hotel occupies the 3rd floor of a building in the Monti neighbourhood, no elevator) but we had a lovely breakfast served each morning (menu choices are typical local fare which you select the day before) and had our room tidied up and fresh towels provided daily. Mauro, our wonderful host, was very helpful to provide sightseeing tips which helped us to plan our itinerary, miss crowds and take shortcuts. He was also very helpful in accommodating our special requests!
The heart of Ancient Rome, all roads led to the Forum. Visitors flock here to walk the streets where Julius Caesar once trod when this was the centre of commercial, political and judicial life. Nearby, the Colosseum, described by Lord Byron as 'the gladiators' bloody circus', is the world's most famous amphitheatre and the most impressive of all Rome's buildings and ruins.
