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.

... we feast. A charming young man lured us in via mum and we enjojyed a selection of pizza, pasta, beer and vino. Unfortunately in my excitement I forgot to order the salami pizza which everyone was most excited for, how awkward. We are staying a ten minute walk from the Colosseum & our hop on hop off bus stop. Did I mention it is 40 degrees and us winter Adelaidians are slowly reducing into sweat piles, Alex Mac style? Due to the heat and our exhaustion we ...

Back on the road again and we pass the town of Orvieta which is the home of the Swiss Guards of the Vatican. Antonella tells us that this is considered a very prestigious position and a high honor. The guards must be 30 years old, unmarried and have an impeccable military record. We’re back in Rome and are staying at the Sheraton near the airport for our last night. There is a ...

We arrived at the penultimate station and for some reason the train just stopped there after passengers had got on and off. Maybe it was only one minutes but it felt like five. Finally Tibertino and the race was on again. Our angel took some keeping up with but I put my head down (and I had a smaller suitcase now). ...

... our stay. We then headed off on a walk to the nearest restaurant around 7.30pm to eat. We found a cute little place and got a pasta each. Delicious. After tea, we wandered a bit more but then headed back to the room to sleep. It had been a long day! We woke up quite late on Tuesday (around midday) so got ourselves showered and ready and headed off to the Colosseum. Bradden grabbed a roll along the way and we shared a drink. The weather said it was around the early 20s so ...
