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.

... work on St. Peter's basilica and the colonnaded piazza leading up to St. Peter's. Like many of his contemporaries, Bernini took inspiration from the classical world and its myths. A masterpiece of his works is his depiction of Apollo and Daphne. He captures the scene in which Apollo catches Daphne as she transforms into a laurel tree before his very eyes. The myth also tells us that he forever loved laurel trees which was the reason why the laurel wreaths had such a significance ...
Our driver came promptly at 5:45 this morning to whisk as away to the Rome Airport. We spent our last Euros on a few final souvenirs, then said ciao to Roma! The flight to London included views of the French Riviera and Paris. The London layover had its fun moments: eating Fish 'n Chips for lunch while watching ET (without volume-- the kids were fixed on it; we need to watch it at home with them!) and buying a few British souvenirs. We sat and watched planes take off and land for ...

After the steps its off to the Trevi Fountain to take more photos and make a wish. We follow the Roma map we have been given by Olga and quite enjoy also taking pictures of the backstreets. So many interesting sights, colourful unique bikes propped up against rustic walls, cool street lighting, lovely flower beds outside of picturesque window frames. Did I mention that Italy is ...
... phone calls to our fossil selling agent in Erfoud, Mohamed was finally on the right track. We would not have blamed him in the least if he become fed up with the exercise as after all, it was all for our private purchase. But he was amazingly good natured about it all and spent no end of trouble in finding the place.
I sat in the car waiting outside the FedEx office while Mohamed and Alan organised the freight. Over an hour later ...
... headed in to see the Sistern Chapel. On our way there we saw so many artwork and paintings and tapestries. I really liked the tapestries because they were quite detailed. The art work on the ceilings looked 3D but were painted. I was very impressed by this and quite surprised. When we finally got the chapel you weren't allowed to take pictures and weren't allowed to talk either. It was nice and kept looking around because I understood why each picture was ...
