... able to get a sense of scale in the city, as well as see - at least from the outside - the major attractions, such as the Colosseum, Vatican City, and more. At the end of our tour, we came back to the hotel and took a much-needed 2-hour nap. It worked out well, because most Roman restaurants don't open for dinner until 7:00 pm. No early bird here! Refreshed by our nap, we consulted guidebooks and Trip Advisor for dinner ...

It was a quick walk through Termini to the bus stops out front, stopping at a tabac stand for a bus ticket. I found the stop to wait for Bus 40 to take me to Largo Argentina where the owner arranged to meet outside the building door to give me the keys to the studio. On the ride I realize that I recognize buildings and streets by sight and feel like ...

Waking early on Tuesday morning, we started the day with two lattes (each) from the bar on the street just below our apartment. Making our way through the Metro stations (peak hour seems to continue well past 10am, which I think is a reflection of the late opening hours of many retailers) we arrived at ...

But, the greater appeal for me was the much lauded ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. However, a 40 minute class on the paintings, with the use of a miniature billboard of the paintings, had to be endured. I felt so impatient, I just wanted to see the artwork!

When we arrived at the Colosseum, it was packed, it seemed that every tourist in Rome was there at the same time. In order to avoid the long queue, we were easily persuaded to join a guided tour of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill; for which there was to be a minimal queue. A word of advice make sure you know ...

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.
