Welcome to Althea Inn

Testaccio, perhaps the most authentic nighbourhood in Rome, was the emperors’ port, where olive oil, wine, grain and other foodstuffs were shipped accross the Mediterranean sea and up the river from all over the Roman Empire.
In this unique area, next to Monte Testaccio, an artificial ancient hill made of millions of amphorae, Althea Inn offers a warm and discrete hospitality.

Rooms are decorated in calming shades with a mix of contemporary and classical design, some provided with an enchanting private terrace where to take breakfast or just sip a drink and unwind after getting back from town. A cosy place with an impeccable service will make your stay a pleasant and memorable one.

The Coliseum, which is the very centre of the historic centre, Circus Maximus, the Imperial Forum, Piazza Venezia and some of the most celebrated turist attractions are set within walking distance or just two subway stops from Althea Inn but to be a traveler, and not just a tourist, you need to explore the more authentic parts of the city and mingle with the locals because some of your most enjoyable moments might be spent in laidback neighborhoods like Testaccio.

  • Truly outstanding...The Althea Inn is not only our favorite of many places we have stayed in Rome, it's the best value.

  • Althea Inn is a special find in Rome. The surprisingly spacious flower-festooned balcony is a treat, but the rest of the facilities are excellent too...

  • Arriving back from a day's sightseeing it felt like a home away from home.

  • Our room was immaculate and peaceful, with the terrace being a perfect place for a late night glass of prosecco under the stars.
