    Historical Traveler Reviews City Guest House Rome

    Great hotel value

    from

    I think that the City Guest House is a great value. The rooms are nice and bright, and the bathrooms modern. Our room had a nice balcony. The hotel also gives a credit for breakfast out of the vending machines. The only negative to this hotel is the location. Although the area it is in is fine, and there are a couple of great pastry shops nearby, the hotel is in more of a residential area. As others have mentioned, its about a 15 minute ride to Termini, and even farther to some of the other stops, such as the Vatican stop. But overall I gave the hotel four stars for its great value and nice rooms.

    Great value.

    from

    The hotel is a 15-20 ride on the Metro from the Termini but it was an excellent value.

    Very clean rooms and an excellent staff.

    There wasn't really a breakfast but since I don'y eat in the morning, I didn't care.

    They also provided 'net access.

    Great Rooms, helpful staff

    from

    We stayed at the City Guest House for 4 nights on our recent trip to Italy.

    We managed to get what was probably once a private apartment (room 301) which had a small kitchen, dining area, balcony and spacious bathroom and bedroom. Our friends had a standard room which was also spacious (minus the kitchen and dining area). The rooms looked to be recently refurbished in nice bright colours and were nice and clean.

    The receptionist spoke fantastic english and was really helpful. There was also a small grocery shop opposite the hotel where the shop assistants were friendly and helpful.

    Travel into the city was very convenient, with the metro stop about a 2 minute walk and the tube ride about 10 minutes.

    Nice Room, Nice Staff

    from

    The hotel was nice and clean. I got a single room with twin beds. The room was spacious and the bathroom was also spacious. The decor was modern and hotel environment was cheery.

    Breakfast, unfortunately, is not included.

    The office staff was very friendly and spoke English.They also offer luggage storage up to 11pm.

    And the hotel is located about 7km from the city center. The use of the metro is necessary to get to the hotel from the city center.

    The neighborhood was not one of the nicest, but the people were everyday, hard-working Romans who were going about with their daily lives as if their city wasn't a tourist attraction. The neighborhood was extremely friendly, and although many of them spoke limited English, they would work with you.

    I would recommend this hotel to people who don't mind being away from the city or mind being around Romans not working in the tourist industry.

    I would not recommend this hotel to travellers that want to reside in the heart of the city and don't want to venture into other areas.

    There's alocal shopping strip about two blocks away that's very cheap.

    In nomine Patris

    In Italy, state-run museums are closed on Mondays, and given that most of the museums you're likely to want to visit are national landmarks, tourist options tend to dwindle pretty severely on the first day of the week. In Rome, this means that we, along with about half of the city's tourist population, decided to spend the day at the Vatican, as it …

    After more than a year and a half of saving and planning and almost twenty-four hours of traveling, we flew into Rome on Sunday, October 21st. Well...technically we flew into Fiumicino and took a short train ride into Rome. But the point is that we arrived! Siamo arrivati!

    The Leonardo Express dumped us out into the sprawling Roma Termini …

    We saw a wedding guests arriving at St. Mark's Basillica (Basilica Cattedrale Patriarcale di San Marco). It has been nicknamed Chiesa d’Oro (Church of Gold), for its opulent designs of gold ground mosaics from the 11th century. This is where St. Mark wrote his gospels. We did not wait to see the wedding couple arrive. Next we went to Santi Apostoli (the Church of the Holy Apostles) were ...

    ... next week, as well as the Vatican Gardens, which are only accessible by guided tours.

    Shortly after returning to the apartment, while "Happy Hour" on the terrace was in full-swing, the owner paid us a surprise visit to see how we were faring. She is a very nice, sophisticated woman who seems genuinely concerned about our welfare, and has kindly offered many tips on how to enjoy our stay in Rome.

    I am exhausted yet so delighted to have spent a wonderful day at the Vatican. To be quite honest, I was not dying to go to the Vatican to see all the treasures the Church "collected" or "plundered" rather while almost half of the world population is struggling with poverty. I'm not sure if it was the new Pope Francis preaching tolerance, but I finally decided to go and discover what all the fuss was about, and it was simply amazing!
