birthday in the Vatican,
Arriving at a decent hour we checked in to our sweet B&B near Termini, and headed straight to the Colosseum. two hours of searching for a working atm later we were ready to actually go into the Colosseum, but where's the entrance you say. Lets check the map, 1 1/2hrs later search for Dan and him me, we met in the …
... we rounded a corner, went down a flight of stairs then turned at another corner, and we were at St. Peter's Basilica. The church was massive. We spent 15 minutes inside. Before we left, we saw some of the Swiss Guard. We left the Vatican City and went for lunch. A hour and a half later, I met up with the rest of the group. One of the teachers was asking if we wanted to go to the soccer. I said yes, but it was still in discussion as ...
... the sun. Rome is pretty chaotic. The traffic is awful and is not helped by all the tourist buses trying to negotiate the narrow streets. There are tourists everywhere. It is impossible to take a photo without a crowd of tourists in it. The Sistine Chapel is so busy you have to wonder what will happen if tourism increases. They already have to close it when it reaches its ...
... a Foxhole in Italy
I hope when this is over
I hope I'll be around
I hope I won't be left here
Underneath the ground
I hope I'll keep on going
I hope I'll see it through
I hope that I'll be coming home
I hope that I'll see you
I hope they keep on missing
I hope my luck holds out
I hope that I can take it
And keep a sweating em out
I hope I'll keep ...
... we took it easy, our legs still sore from all the walking the day before. We decided to just go to the cat sanctuary. There used to be cats all over Rome; Momma said 20 years ago when she went to Rome the cats were protected and they were EVERYWHERE! But some people just don't like cats, and today there is only one cat sanctuary in Rome which we went to. The cats lived in a fenced off area of ruins, and we could not go in there but we did go into a small room that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Maryelen Rome
Loredana runs a very clean and efficient BnB. Some aspects are a bit minimal such as the very small bathroom in our room and there being no lounge area. While she is a very gracious host, breakfast is limited to corn flakes or plastic wrapped croissants with your cafe.
Loved the Maryellen B&B
My husband & I enjoyed our stay at the Maryellen. The room was nice, modern, & very clean, while in keeping with the charm of a Roman neighborhood. Although the street is a bit littered (as is the majority of old Rome)it was a good location for public transport.,& walking distance to many sights.It was a pleasure to know the very kind & helpful innkeepers and we felt like one of the family.
I can't begin to tell you all the things I loved about this place. Loredana was by far the highlight! From the moment I booked the room, she was super helpful & friendly, and that continued throughout our stay.
This family B & B is in a very quiet street a short walk from the terminal. You will be greeted by Loredana your host, she will make you feel very welcome and will offer you good advice on where to go and how best to get there. she directed us to the supermarket which is the cheapest place for food and presents such as local wine and confectionery.these goodies are much cheaper than anywere in the city and the airport.
A nice b&b in a very convenient location..near the termini
Loredana is friendly and helpful
Rooms are good bathrooms are small but clean
The only negative is the air conditioning which they keep at a standard temp and we felt warm in the room [ on venere they advertise individually controlled a/c which is not the case] it was very hot in june and better a/c would have helped a lot
Loredanas husband very helpful..he helped us find the car park and took us there
Can recommend if ure not bothered about the A/C
We are just back from a trip to Rome and Florence. MaryElen B&B was the first hotel we stayed in. We booked through venere.com. It is very close to the Termini (under a 5 minute walk, with suitcases), and Loredana had emailed great directions to us before we left the US. It's proximity to the Termini station meant we didn't have to use taxis at all during our stay in Rome -- there is a Metro stop at the Termini (one Euro per trip), as well as the airport express (9.50 Euros one way), and trains all around Italy. The food wasn't bad at the Termini cafe either! I was a little concerned about the Termini area, but we felt quite safe at all times of the day and night when walking around. There are three locked doors to enter before you reach your room too. The room fridge was great, and there is a supermarket very close by. Loredana gave us a map and showed us the major sites when we arrived. Breakfast was "euro-style": rolls, cake, corn flakes, toast, juice and fantastic coffee. Big room, small bathroom. Our courtyard facing room was lovely. Very hospitable and helpful folks. Compared to our other accomodations, good to average value for money.
This spotlessly clean B&B and has a great location close to the Termini train station, but it is quiet. Also on that block among other businesses are a laundry/Internet combination, a fine and affordable Indian restaurant and a place with a Pizza Rustica sign, which has wonderful barbecued chicken and tasty meat pies. Around a corner and toward the Termini is a large enough supermarket with a good selection of cheese, sandwich meats and wine.
