Navona Garden Suites
Travel Blogs from Rome
Although the first day in Rome was everything I expected it to be, it seemed like a very long day that never seemed to end. This was because of the time difference compared to here in Italy and back in Michigan. After the airport, we found our bed and breakfasts and went out for lunch and low key exploring. Lunch was a margherita pizza, containing chunks of cheese ...
... br> The rest of today's entry will be brought to you by a guest author, Lauren, who wants to contribute, what with Rome being her favourite city.
Hi everyone, Lauren here. Michael has kindly allowed me to write a guest entry as it is our last day in my favourite city! Being my #1 place, I was worried Michael might not share/understand my enthusiasm for this city, but thankfully Rome has ...
... recommended a very popular pizzeria (Grottino - I think) where we ate our first authentic pizza and calzone washed down with red wine.
The next day Franco (the guy who rented us his spare room in his apartment) was very nice to lend us a guide book in Spanish. In the book we found out that the Vatican museum is free on the last Sunday of each month, and we just so happen to be there on that day! Being backpackers we woke up very early on Sunday in ...
... adored seeing the big cathedrals across Europe. They have held such wonderful, eye opening and just stand there staring in awe moments for me. The sheer enormity of this buildings, the beautiful artwork throughout, even the flooring in these places is gorgeous and St Paul's was not going to disappoint. It's hard to put it in to perspective but in one of the photo's you see some gold lettering up near the ceiling, these letters are 2 metres tall!!! This place even has mummified ...
... almost the entire time, it was something I had never really experienced before, that type of sociability on a long flight. I also managed to spill my beer allllllllll over myself. ALSO THEY GIVE YOU FREE BEER OR WINE ON INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS, IF YOU TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM THIS BLOG, IT SHOULD BE THIS! FREE ALCOHOL! Anywho, We mostly talked about how every woman in the world is crazy in their own way, and how every guy only wants one thing...It's hard to ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Navona Garden Suites Rome
Perfect location, lovely place
I´ve stayed at this family managed guest house for 3 days. It is located in the heart of the historic center, close to the major touristic attractions including Piazza Navonna, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza di Spagna, Piazza Venezia and Coleseo. This is the perfect place to stay in Rome. The Vatican is also at a reasonable walking distance (just 20 minutes) from there.
The wonderful owners speak English and are always pleased to give you many tips about good stores, restaurants and places to visit. For a fair price, this hotel offers a modern and very clean room including cable tv, conditionated air and a good shower.
If you are planning to checkin late (after 8pm), I recommend you to inform the owners before because they don´t stay there at night.
Ich war in diesem familienbetriebenen Gasthaus für 3 Tage. Es ist im Herzen des historischen Zentrums gelegen, nah an allen Touristenattraktionen wie Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Piazza di Spagna, Piazza Venezia, dem Kolosseum und dem Trevi-Brunnen. Der perfekte Ort zum Wohnen in Rom. Der Vatikan befindet sich ebenfalls in gut zu erlaufender Entfernung (nur 20 Minuten).
Wir haben gerade eine Woche in Rom im Navona Garden Suites zum Zwecke ausführlicher Familienfeier verbracht. Einige Familienmitglieder waren in der näheren Umgebung untergebracht und wir waren mit der Unterkunft sehr zufrieden. Das Zimmer war in jeder Hinsicht perfekt: komfortabel, geräumig, wunderschön eingerichtet. Die Lage war ideal: sämtliche Haupttouristenattraktionen waren leicht zu erlaufen und das Hotel liegt an einer interessanten Straße mit vielen Restaurants, Bars und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Auch unsere Gastgeber hätten sich kaum mehr Mühe geben können. Schon während der Buchung gab es angenehme Telefongespräche, man gab uns gute Tipps bezüglich des Taxi-Streiks, welcher am Tag unserer Ankunft herrschte, man begrüßte uns sehr herzlich und war bei jedem Schritt behilflich. Wir hatten einen fantastischen Aufenthalt in Rom und dieses Hotel hat dabei einen großen Beitrag geleistet.
Very happy time
We have just returned from a week in Rome, staying at Navona Garden Suites, for an extended family celebration. Various family members stayed in close proximity, we were best pleased with our accommodation. The room was perfect in every way; comfortable, spacious, wonderfully situated. The position was ideal for us, easy walking distance to many of the major sights, on an interesting street with many restaurants, bars and shops. Our hosts could not have looked after us better at every step, from early phone conversations, through the booking process, giving sound advice on how to cope with the taxi strike on our day of arrival, greeting us warmly and being helpful and friendly at turn. We had the best time in Rome and staying here made a huge contribution to the success of the trip
Just arrived home from a fantastic 5 days in central Rome, and have to give the Navona Garden Suites a rave review because the trip wouldn't have been the same without such great and 'right-in-the-heart-of-it' accomodation.
great property, great location and really nice owners. i would recommend this guest house to anyone who wants to be in the middle of things i.e. only steps away from all of Rome's most beautiful attractions. Brand new the suite we stayed in was better than most 4 star hotels I have every stayed in! the owners are an American chap from Colorado who operates a dental practice together with his Italian wife. He took time out on Saturday morning to give us a quick tour of Piazza Navona - charming and interesting chap! We are already booked again for next May!
Lovely Homely Accommodation
We booked into the Navona Garden Suites after finding their partner business the Navona Suites were full. We were surprised to find some completely new suites had been created in the tranquil central courtyard of the same building. The new rooms were light and comfortable and were decorated and furnished with care and attention. The peacefull little garden/courtyard is the perfect spot to enjoy breafast and some early sun. Located along a picturesque street next to Piazza Navona, i believe the location and accommodation to be unbeatable from my experience in the city.
Sehr schönes Hotel
Wer ein echtes Gefühl für diese Stadt entwickeln möchte, der muss einfach hierher kommen. Man fühlt sich wie ein Einheimischer mit dem gesamten Komfort von Zuhause. Die Zimmer sind wunderschön; komfortabel, preiswert, sauber, klimatisiert. Es ist für diesen Preis das beste Angebot und man ist nah dran an vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten in Rom. Meine Frau und ich waren schon viel unterwegs in Europa und wir wählen dieses Hotel an die Spitze. Einfach eine hervorragende Unterkunft. Beim nächsten Mal in Rom, kommen wir auf jeden Fall wieder her.
If you really want to get a feel for the city you have got to stay at this place. You feel like you are a native but with all the comforts of home. The rooms are great; comfortable, affordable, clean, well air conditioned. It's the best deal for a great price and it is close to many of the main attractions of Rome. My wife and I have stayed at a lot of places all throughout Europe and we rate this place at the top. Its a great lodging experience. When we go back to Rome we will stay there for sure.
We had a wonderful stay in the heart of Rome (Piazza Navona). We stayed two nights in the "Michealangelo" room which sleeps at least 7 (possibly more) and is a great place for a large group or family complete with 2 bathrooms, and a kitchen which is furnished even with food!
