Rome--- lodging

Post by Roby » Thu Mar 22, 2007 12:02 am

Hello my friends,

I am looking for lodging in Rome. I would prefer not to be in the touristy section of the town. I am looking for a place that is in a reasonable price range between the train station and the metro. Clean, friendly, etc. 2 stars / 3 stars

I would appreciate any recommendations. Do any of our Roman members have any suggestions? Thank you.

We always stay at the San Carlo.
It's on Via delle Carozze.
Ask for the annex, top two floors.
We've stayed in ~10 Roman hotels, and we always go back here.
The Portoghese is also good, but often booked.

Fax (+39) - 06.80.85.749


E-mail: info@hoteldellemuse.com
hmuse@flashnet.it

Hotel delle Muse is located in the elegant, quiet, residential area of Rome known as Parioli.

St. Moritz Hotel
51 Via Nazionale
Rome 00184 Italy

The Hotel St.Moritz is a 3-star accommodation located in the centre of Rome in a beautiful building dating back to the 19th century

Price range 65 Euros to 250 Euros all year around

How To Arrive at the hotel

By Plane: From the Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) airport there is a train every 30 minutes to the Railway Station " Termini ", or a taxi service.
By Train: From Termini railway station to the hotel you have less than 1 km, therefore you can reach the hotel on foot. If you prefer you can take a bus (number 64 or 170).
By Metro: The nearest Metro Station is "Repubblica", less than 300 metres far away from us.

Hotel Italia
Via Venezia, 18
Roma, 00184
Tel.+39 06-482-8355
Fax +39 06-745-550

http://www.hotelitaliaroma.com/

It is situated in the heart of historic Rome. Near the Spanish Steps, Fountain of Trevi, Termini station and the Colosseum. It located 3 blocks from Termini station.
Price Range 50 Euros to 200 Euros

I personally have stayed at the Hotel St. Moritz and Hotel Italia. I haven't stayed at the Hotel St. Moritz in many years. I like the location of the Hotel Italia and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I have stayed there several times. The hotel is not fancy, but I really enjoyed staying there.

***Some words of advice: Read reviews on the hotels, B&B's etc, where you are thinking of staying.

***The 110 Bus--This is a good way to get an overview of the city, but don't expect a full blown tour...the attractions are highlighted using a prerecorded message in several different languages (they provide headphones). I would only recommend this bus if you're nervous about getting around the city on your own. I would suggest using this tour on the first day you arrive so you can get an overview of the city and try to get your bearings. You can buy the tickets at Termini station. The cost is about 13 euros for a hop on/hop off tour or 8 euors for a non stop tour.

***It is well worth it. I rode the 110 Bus to get around the city when the distances to walk were too far. It is cheaper than a cab/taxi ride. You can get on and off all day.
Timetable
April-September: 9:00-20:00
October-March: 10:00-18:00

Hi Tim,

You say that you have stayed in about 10 hotels in Rome. Could you recommend any that are not in the tourist part of Rome between the train station and the metro? I am working with a budget.
Thank you,
Roby

Rome Hotels

Post by timLA » Thu Mar 22, 2007 9:08 pm

We've always stayed in the central area because it's so convenient.

North of the Vatican is a good place to start - Metro stops and all.
I've heard good things about the Santa Anna in Borgo Pio.
Anything around Cola di Rienzo will be nice and convenient.

Don't go near the Termini.

Up by the Policlinico might be a good place too.
There's a Metro stop.

The area around San Giovanni in Laterano is not bad, Metro and the 81 Bus (which goes EVERYWHERE in the world!)

An of course, Trastevere...so you'll have a lot of choices.
Let me know if you find something and I can perhaps describe the area...

B&B

Post by timLA » Fri Mar 23, 2007 4:33 am

I've looked at them all from your list (excellent by the way) and in my opinion, the best of the bunch is the BBFandF - they have two locations north of the Vatican - great area. Metro nearby...fantastic market north of the Vatican...not touristy...good bus stops and a 15 min walk to St. Peter.

When are you going?

Edit: Here's a nice link with other reviews:

Hi

Roby,
I am really glad to hear that you are coming to Rome :D
What I can suggest you is to first check this site where I usually make reservations for my trips.: http://www.booking.com/
Then, once you have chosen the most suitable lodgings, post here the link to their page in order to let me check their location and tell you if they are in a quiet area and are easily accessible.
I would personally avoid the Termini station area, because I usually avoid it myself, expecially when it comes dark :shock:
Per ora ti saluto e fammi sapere.

Scaredprincess,

Thanks for the information. I would appreciate any help you can give me. I will let you know more as soon as we decide when we will be coming . We had plans to come this past spring, but things changed. We hope to come in Dec. but everything has not been worked out yet. Thanks again.
