Travel Blogs from Rome
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 …
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 …
... wonderful works of art and while we were in there, there was a very large down pour of rain, which blank out part of the city, by the time we left it was alright. We crossed the river to the Concord and walked through the gardens to the Palace Royal and the Louvre which was amazing, and when we walked the Concord we could see the Eiffel Tower and down the des Champ-Eiysees to the Arc ...
... bought a cameo charm for my bracelet, and it was actually made by the husband of the owner, who has since passed away. She had a story and she was a delightful little old lady who just wanted a chat. In the midst of all the shops and the Spanish steps, there was a very upmarket maccas, amazing, they just appear everywhere in Europe.
We decided to get some ice cream and just veg for a while, even through it was extremely crowded. The gelati was probably ...
... pee! Loz & Gidge found us - SO great to see them - and we headed to the apartment to meet the owner and get the keys. Gian Paolo provided the most warm and friendly welcome. He was clearly very proud of his immaculately presented abode and his personal presentation was rather pleasing too (as Kaila observed). We settled in, reconnected to the www, dressed for dinner and met Loz & Gidge back downstairs. It was lovely to all be dining together at the local pizzeria ...

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.
