... My new favorite is coconut and pistachio.
I had chose the St. Domitilla Catacombs out of the thousand that are in Rome because they are the largest, but really out of the city by a good bit. This was good because it wasn't crowded at all. The catacombs that we missed out on in Paris had a 2-3 hour wait!!! We really didn't know what to expect at the catacombs, but it was exactly what you see on tv....but very ...
... tomorrow night. John is hanging out for the food in Singapore. We arrived back at the apartment and booked a tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel for Wednesday. Then time for bed. Tuesday 15 October - breakfast over we made our way out of the Trastavere area where we are staying and headed in the direction of the Collosseum. When we arrived we were encouraged by a "sales" agent at the Collosseum to take a guided tour rather than going through ourselves. We had ...
... to display some sort of permit for parking. Just as we were about to free the children from their seats, I advised James of my observation. After his own recon, he agreed that we were very likely in a permit only area… So, we jumped back into the Matchett bus and five hundred point turned our way out of there. Obviously, we achieved in getting a photo of the Steps, even if it was from inside the car as we were driving towards them…
I was so ready to ...
... At least in Paris some high school French returned so we were able to decipher signs, menus etc. Here it's like they speak another language. Bahhahah.
We made it to our hotel fairly easily. it is within a few blocks of The Termini Station just as indicated on the maps. Wahoo, so far the travel plans are working well. Suspicious sister had to knock on my head so our luck didn't change. She ...
... mentioned it while she was there. next minute I had a knock on the door and it was a bellboy with some fresh towels. I took him through to the dirty one so he could take it. He had a look around and I soon noticed that the floor was quite dirty as well. He obviously came to the conclusion that the room was clean so we was on to reception to find us another room. Finally Bec came back and we packed our bags and headed with him to the 5th floor. Well turned out to be a good ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Daphne Inn Trevi Rome
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely fantastic stay at the Daphne B&B.
My three sisters, myself and my mother stayed at Daphne B&B in Rome for three night in September. I can honestly say that it was unanimously the best accomadation we stayed in during our trip to Europe. From the very minute we arrived we were spoiled by the wonderful personal service we got from Heather at Daphne B&B. She walked us to Spanish Steps stopping to take pictures of all of us on the steps and then proceeded to take us to the nearby American Express to exchange money and then left us at a wonderful pizzaria she recommended for lunch. Upon our return she then sat down with us and familiarized us with local maps and lots of advice on how to get around in Rome. We were supplied with cell phones to stay in contact with not only each other but also with Alessandro & Elyssa (owners) and Heather in case we had any problems, needed information, or reservations etc during our stay. We did on occasion contact them for tour information and Alassandro kindly made wonderful dinner reservations as well as walking us personally to the taxi, loading us in and giving directions to the driver as non of us spoke Italian. Daphne is located in a great section of Rome, close to Trevi Fountain, and easy access to subway and taxi services. Our bus tour of Rome picked us up right at Daphne and dropped us after. How much more convenient is that??? The B&B itself was extremely clean with comfortable beds, lovely white comforters and a beautiful sitting room where we relaxed comfortably after the long days of site seeing. I would highly recommend Daphne B&B to anyone traveling to Rome. On a scale of 1-10 it is definately a 10 for a B&B.
Fantastic stay in Rome
We stayed at the Hotel Daphne last weekend (9th-13th October 2003) & would recommend it to anyone. OK, it's not a five star hotel, but it doesn't claim to be. It's a small, family-run B&B, it's clean, has spacious bedrooms with air-conditioning (well ours was) & is all you could ask for, right in the centre of Rome. What sets it apart from other B&Bs is the service you receive. The staff willingly give up their time to advise you on what to see, how to avoid the crowds, where to find restaurants serving real Italian food & even where to buy the best grappa. They will gladly make reservations for restaurants & galleries & host a wine & cheese tasting session once a week. Hopefully we will return to Rome one day & would not consider staying anywhere else.
I have stayed at the Daphne 2 times this year and I am looking forward to returning to Rome soon and staying at the Daphne. The service was incredible and very friendly. The rooms at the main hotel building were quiet, clean and decorated beautifully. The location is wonderful with 1 euro pizza right next door that is gourmet quality. We did once stay for 2 nights at the alternative location which is a short walk away.
I don't think some of the reviewers stayed at the same Daphne B&B where we stayed! The B&B was just lovely! The decor was modern, but simple.
I liked it (Stayed 6-2003)
I found the Daphne B&B to be clean and safe, and the owners were extremely nice and easy to deal with. They really went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed Rome - he sat with us for 45 minutes to give us a Rome sight-seeing itinerary. They speak excellent English (One of the co-owners is American), and give excellent restaurant recommendations.
They even gave us a cell phone to use while we were in the city! This was very convenient - calls to the US were only $.40 a minute. I would definitely stay here again.
Daphne is OK and unlike the other reviews posted here we weren't moved to another room. My problem is with the breakfast.
No Security at Daphne
We stayed at Daphne last month for 4 nights. My initial impression was positive. After 2 nights we came back to find the owner telling us she moved us to another room. We weren't exactly thrilled at having our things moved by someone else, plus, the room they moved us to was significantly smaller and right next to the bathroom that all the rooms shared. Then she told us we didn't need new room keys because the keys were the same for the 2 rooms. NICE SECURITY!We didn't like the idea of the person in another room having access to my room. Plus, how did she know we wouldn't go in our original room?! If you want security Daphne is not the place to stay.
Im posting to let everyone know about my stay Daphne B&B in Rome. I stayed there with a friend of mine and the customer service was the worst thing I have ever experienced. We arrived at the train station in Rome & one of the men selling rooms offered his place, Daphne Bed & Breakfast private bath for $80 a night right in the center of the city. We arrived at Daphne & the place was very nice and clean. We paid for our three nights upfront, as they requested, and had a good nights sleep. The next morning we left the room to go sightseeing. We returned to find our bags packed and the owner waiting for us. He told us they had an overbooking & he had to find us another place. What I found amazing is that he didnt feel he did anything wrong. They packed our bags and we werent allowed back in the room. Since we were two men traveling, they couldnt tell what belonged to whom so we spent over an hour sorting out articles from our bags. Everything was just jammed in the bags, no folding, no care. Not to mention the fact we were worried that something might be lost. Plus, Daphne refused to give us our money back for the 2 nights we didnt stay. He told us he already gave the money to other bed & breakfast owner. We stood there arguing with the owner for over a half hour. The owner of Daphne felt that since he found us another place to stay we should not be bothered. Outrageous! We later realized Daphne had simply found someone else to pay more money than we did for the room. After leaving Daphne we called the owners and again we argued. They finally offered to give us $40 back. Can you imagine coming back to your hotel room & finding someone had gone through all of your things? Your bags were packed by you did not even know? Is it too much to assume that once you pay for a hotel room that you are entitled to use the room?! I have stayed in hostels and was never treated that way we were at Daphne. I will be returning to Rome but I will never stay at Daphne ever again. Be careful t take your money but if they can get more money from someone else you will be on the curb.
