Travel Blogs from Rome
We have just returned after an amazing tour of the city, it's 2.40 in the arvo and we have about an hour to freshen up before we head off for another excursion and dinner. Today started with a tour of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. We really only scratched the surface of what's in the Vatican Museum but what we did see was inspiring, as was …
Yesterday we spent the day driving to Rome with a stopoff at a quaint town called Olievito for lunch. Was very good to see.
Arrived in Rome-very nice hotel-very big rooms-but very hot in Rome! Went on a walking tour and saw the Spanish Steps and the Trevi fountain etc. All very cool-but very crowded! Did the usual-toss a coin in the Trevi …
Today was probably the busiest day we've had on the tour so far! In the morning we met up with our local guide, Christina, to visit the Colosseum and Forum. Because of some complicated rules, Mihaela is not able to guide tours in Italy. It's apparently a two year certification process. The bus dropped us off just down the street from the Colosseum …
We got an early start and met our local guide for our last adventures in Rome- the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. I'm so excited! I've dreamed of seeing the ceiling and walls since I was a kid, and I can't believe we're about to be there in person!
We entered the Vatican Museum knowing that we would only see a sliver of what it had to …
Driving into Rome was a very strange experience for me. It's a very developed city kind of dirty and congested. More like a backwards New York than the ancient Rome that we'd envisioned. Cars are double parked EVERYWHERE! It's really unbelievable. Not what either of us expected!
We got to the hotel and got ourselves ready for our …

TravelPod Member ReviewsParco Tirreno Rome
Large room, a bit tired and knocked around, but clean and comfortable, however they charge €10 for the wifi and €10 for the pool which is crap.
Some of the others on the tour have had dodgy a/c and issues but we were OK.

Historical Traveler Reviews Parco Tirreno Rome
Great is you want to combine sight-seeing with relaxing
My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights in July and we will definately stay here next time we visit Rome.This hotel is perfect if you want to combine sight-seeing with relaxing around a pool after a busy day. It is located a few metro stops from the main sights, however this wasn't a problem as the metro station was close-by. The rooms were spacious and clean, staff were helpful and the food was good.
I stayed at the Parco Tirreno from 28th July to 4th August 2005 and really have to say that the hotel was great. The reception staff all speak perfect English and were at all times polite and helpful. The location is what will upset some people as there is a 5 minute walk to the Metro (Cornelia) and then a journey of 20 - 40mins (depending on time of day) into the City Centre. It's also worth remembering that the Metro closes at 23.30 weekdays (00.30 Saturdays), so, if you wish to avoid Taxi fares, you must return early every night. That said, taxis from City Centre (Colluseum area) were only 11 Euros.
Things started badly when the parking we saw advertised as free is not, and is charged at 10 euros a day. After reading the reviews on here, we paid the extra for a superior room and yes, it was nicely decorated, a good size, had a nice balcony and a lovely view. As others have said, there was a small kitchen with fridge - but all the cupboards were empty - not even a kettle or a mug, so it seemed a bit pointless really. The air conditioning worked well, and the room and bathroom had clearly been newly refitted. However, the finish around the bath was very poor, the shower head was loose and there was lots of mould around the grouting/bath seal. The walls were paper thin, we could hear everything going on in the bathroom next door. The double bed was also 2 single beds (VERY hard) with about a 6" gap between them, and a single large headboard behind them - no use for a romantic weekend! There was no visitor information pack in the room (e.g. info on pool, restaurant, breakfast, checkout times etc) and breakfast finished at 9.30 - way too early for us on holiday! The bar was supposed to open at 6pm but didn't open till 6.30 when we were there. It also shut at 11 which is a bit early if you have been out in Rome and have come back before the public transport finishes! Food in the restaurant was excellent, however, and reasonably priced.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel 20th - 27th July 2005 and found the reception staff very helpful and they spoke perfect English. The room was always clean and fresh towels provided - also the air conditioning worked a treat - perfect for that week as the weather was hot. We had one evening meal at the hotel on the first night (it was at the waiter service rather than the self service and was good) but for the remainder we ate out at several of the restaurants which were within walking distance of the hotel and were excellent value. The metro which took us to all the main tourist attractions was within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel pool was large but quite often local swimmers used it to train - it was sectioned off into lanes which meant that maybe two lanes were occupied by trainers and the rest left to the holidaymakers.
Outside and reception fine but not a four star. Room very old fashioned, decor grotty beds uncomfortable. Tiny shower. Very disappointed.
It was okay
Good points - the grounds are lovely, the rooms are huge, there is a kitchen, there are many, many closets (7 for the rooms).
Bad points - one stand alone air conditioner for 2 rooms is not sufficient. We put the mattesses from the bedroom into the living room in order to sleep. The furniture is mismatched and is not complete, i.e. we had a table but no chairs, the next room had chairs but no table. The cleaniness is okay but the whole thing looked a bit shoddy. We had a cot with no sheets, etc.
The price is exceptional and I guess that makes it a deal.
Well worth a visit
Had a really good time, staff were very helpful and polite. Most spoke excellent english. Food was delicious and very reasonable. Would definitely make a return trip. Rooms were a bit basic, but were spotlessly clean. Metro less than 10 mins walk from hotel. Used the hotel limo for our return trip to the airport - first class service there too!
Good accommodation suitable for families
Stayed here August 2003 and returning again in a few months time.
Easy hotel to drive to, as it is just off the main ring road motorway, one road, Via Aurelia, so easy to find. Rooms have a separate air-con double bedroom and a double sofabed. Kitchen area also and balcony. Use of swimming pool, next to the hotel with a snackbar. Approx. 6 minute walk to metro taking you directly into the centre in just several stops. Good especially for families as it is very hard to find a hotel with a swimming pool in Rome and one that can actually accommodate you all in same room.
As long as you do not mind catching the metro to sights, this hotel offers very good value for money. Friendly reception and good buffet breakfast!
Great deal and has a kitchen!!!
We love this hotel! Convenient to the metro, has a kitchen, free parking, and easy on and off the freeway. We stay here whenever we are in Rome.
A garden spot in Rome
Just returned from a 9 night stay this past October.The property was undergoing extensive renovation with nets on the front of the exterior.Not very attractive when arriving from an overseas flight however this presented no problem durnong our stay.Location was out a bit in an residential area but with the metro a few blocks away this resent no problem.The hotel is in a lovely setting with gardens and quite in the evening.The rooms were fine although I would insist on a bath room with both tub bath and shower as the single rooms had a very small hand held shower.The bottom line if you do not mind being out it is a good value for the dollar and the staff was fine and spoke excellent English.
