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.

Travel Blogs from Rome
From Romulus was born a long line of kings who ruled from the founding of the city throughout the period of the Roman Monarchy. These were still the days of myth and many deeds were attributed to these kings that may or may not have actually been done by them. Regardless, it is clear that power and corruption of the monarchy began to build up tension amongst ...
... sights were within 15 - 30 minute walk...great!! Friday morning and Mary was still running a temperature, so again I let her sleep but made sure she took her medicine before I left. I walked to the Colosseum which took 15 minutes, as I made my way down the stairs by the roadside I just thought 'wow' !! What a magnificent sight it is. It actually gave me goosebumps. As it was not quite 8:30am there wasn't many people there waiting, which was great so I went in straight away, ...
... words can describe them. The Sistine Chapel was also amazing but I had wished that it was a little more relaxed and spiritual instead of workers yelling at everyone to put their phones away and to move to the side. Still incredible nonetheless. After wards we had some lunch at a place near the Vatican which was not the best. We didn't know that there was a thick style of pizza and a thin style and we ordered and got the thick style when we wanted thin. It wasn't amazing but I still ...
Naples...what a ****** place. Jokes on me. It was not beautiful and it was not what we thought it would be. We went to Herculaneum which was cool-it was interesting to see what the city would be like back in the day if it hasn't been destroyed by mount Vesuvius eruption. I liked it enough but it wasn't worth the day trip to Naples that's for sure...but that's alright. We forfeited our reservation to Rome on the high speed air conditioned train ...
... the Colosseum was excellent though and even the not-so-good food we ate at a café close to there was worth it for the view.
My favorite thing about the café by the Colosseum was seeing Skip’s reluctance and then embarrassment at having to show our waiter her “pretty eyes” by taking off her sunglasses to get the check before we left hahahaha. Skip’s got some pretty ...
