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.

... It's all new again after 50!!! ;-)
We then made our way over to the Forum and Palatine Hill, we got there at 4 it closes at 6:15- 6:30 so we thought we'd just have enough time if we didn't dawdle. Unfortunately it was too late to rent the audio guide! so we just had to read the signs and didn't get nearly the information that we could have, as it was we barely got through the entire place and I know if we had had the audio guide we never would have as ...
... and found a map and walked to our hotel which didn't take long thank goodness! Turns out it was also very close to the main rail station which turned out very handy when leaving. Went out and walked - and sort of got our bearings in this huge city. Found a good sized box, packed our formal gear and some things bought on the journey so far, found a post office and sent it home. Met at least a half a dozen other Aussies from the cruise doing the same thing! Only hope it gets ...
This is a church devoted to Saint Louis and associated with the French community in Rome. It is the most beautiful building inside, guilt and well chosen marble which is well lit by an open cupola and topped of by three very important and striking paintings by Caravaggio. A stroll through P Navona and to Campo di Fiori for juice of pomegranate and pizza on the street before ...
... Forum (with her newly acquired knowledge of Roman architecture!) and then return to the Augustus exhibition for a longer look around, while Michael fancied finding the chess players cafe we saw last year, so we agreed to meet at the cin cin bar later for pre dinner drinks. We each had a great time exploring our bits of Rome, but, as you will see from the photos, the real star of the day was Liam, who thoroughly explored the Forum, and even tried to climb the ...
... by lion"! There were gates, walls, churches, temples and a heap of administrative buildings.....pretty much covered off the political, religious and judicial stuff!
Two to three hours later we emerged, the sun was still our friend so we decided to walk all the way up the River Tiber to Vatican City....maybe the Pope would be out walking his dog! Of course you all know about Romulus and Remus, two little babies who drifted up the Tiber in ...
