Historical Traveler Reviews City Guest House Rome
Great hotel value
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.
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
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
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.

... before, we couldn’t resist walking around this magnificent structure. We had a really good day just walking around and enjoying each other’s company. It was hot so we each had an ice-cream for lunch. We walked past a Sedgeway tour group, Geoff asked, but fortunately they were booked out, Geoff would never get me on one of those things. He tried to trick me into believing he had booked it, but I didn’t believe him.

The pope spoke for 15 minutes in Italian and it was all over to the tolling of bells as he waved to the crowd and we waved back. He ended by wishing us a good lunch. We could also see him on big screens. We hadn't had breakfast yet.

... tour of the museum we were taken into the Sistine Chapel. It was actually smaller than I expected but Michelangelo's ceiling is incredible. Before we went in we were also told about his wall painting behind the alter, which he was requested to paint after completing the ceiling, (he was in his 60's by this time) he initially said no, but money talked to even him... In some ways I liked this even better, it actually has whole lot of nuances and double ...

The people that drive in Italy do not use there indicators when turning or changing lanes. They also don't care about how they ...
