Travel Blogs from Rome
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 …
... and commanding presence it possesses. Entrance into the building is free and one can roll back the years as they step into a museum filled with different generations of armed weapons and arsenals.
From the tireless hub of the street life, a quiet place of tranquility and natural vegetation lies in the middle of the impressive city, Villa Borghese.
That evening Ricco and I again decided to stay away from the ...

We threw a coin into the Trevi Fountain - which aparently means you will return to Rome one day. Yay! ;-) Our guide then walked us to That's Amore - the restaurant where we had our cooking lesson. There ...

I have already done a lot of walking but now the two of us set out on a walking marathon (although we did not intend to do this). We walk to Piazza Del Popolo (to find my meeting spot for my photography lesson), then in the opposite direction to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele and then a detour over to see the Trevi Fountain before heading back ...

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.
