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.

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 …
... the island to see the intriguing Blue Grotto which was spectacular. The guide told me that the cave is said to have sunk further into the sea since prehistoric times blocking out most natural light. The rays entering from an underwater cavity combine with the trickle of light from the caves only entranceway, giving the water its magical vivid-blue effect! This day would be an ...

El oratorio San Silvestro. Talk about a hidden gem!!!! Where is David when you need him? (our guide to the sistine chapel) We just loved the frescoes here although we did not understand them well and had to google them when we got back to our BB. They are poorly lit but I have since read, sometimes the nuns are singing in the chapel and they light them up! Wow! Now we have to go back!!
... to the hotel, eventually.
Could not resist a beautiful handmade, handpainted leather handbag in the window of a shop in the Via della Quattro Fontane. Did I mention that it may have a touch of purple on it?
Tomorrow, we are off to see the Castel Sant Angelo and to do some more meandering before we catch the overnight train to ...
