... and all as befitting its Bishop, again the pictures will tell the story.
Across the street is the chapel of the Scala Santa, the stairway that Jesus climbed to be judged by Pilate, this is a long marble stair case, covered with wood for its protection, that the faithful climb on their knees. Virginia climbed the steps, I did not, my knees are not up to that any more, she has earned ...
... definitely be frequenting there often and plan to buy the limoncello and some spices next time! After leaving the market we had about 2 hours before a dorm meeting so we decided to continue walking past campo. We thought we were headed towards the Colosseo again but didn't bother to take out a map and instead just roamed the streets of Rome! The architecture is breathtaking around the city and we spent a lot of time taking pictures and enjoying the sunny ...
We have checked in our luggage; notably a very smooth process for those of us who did the online checkin. For those who didn't it was a longish queue. Hand luggage was weighed and tagged so glad joe put the heavy guidebooks in his suitcase. Sitting in the bar having enjoyed a farewell to Oz G&T. Ready to face customs ...
... the Trevi Fountain. OMG it is massive so stunning and pretty though. There was this random guy who was dressed up as the pope and jumped in and I have no idea what he was doing but he just started walking through the water and then Police went crazy. Then there was this random Nun and a transvestite who were all yelling something until they all got taken away by the Police. One of the weirdest things ever and it just had to be the 15 minutes we ...
I have arrived in Rome. The flight was long. I found it very hard to sleep on the plane. Nan said that I flipped around like a fish out of water. I just couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep. Today, both of Nan and I are lazy. The taxi ride to our hotel was crazy, interesting and exciting all at the same time. The crazy part was the driving. Our driver drove very fast swerving in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews San Jouan Guest House Rome
We stayed at the San Jouan during the first week in May of this year (2006). What a great experience we had. First the rooms are immaculate.. I cannot say enough about the hospitality extended to us by the staff at San Jouan. All of our needs were attended to thoroughly by both Nestor and Stephany who looked after us like we were family. Nestor and Stephany were extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions and always inquired to ensure we had anything we wanted or needed. We were close to everything and found walking from this location to be very easy and that were many great restaurants very close at hand... we would highly recommend anyone to stay here. You won't be disappointed by the location or the service. The staff happily assisted by making dinner reservations for us after providing restaurant suggestions tailored to our dining experience preferences and budget objectives.
The location is perfect! - next to Via Merulana very near San Giovanni and Colosseum really easy to get around, but tucked away on a quiet street.
Bello de verdad. Rome San Jouan Town House
Escribo para agradecerles por la atenciòn especial que brindan a todos sus hòspites. Yo fuì uno de ellos y me alegro de haber estado con ustedes, en esos tres dìas maravillosos, que me han hecho sentir como en casa. Conocer Roma y conocerlos a ustedes ha sido ìbello de verdad!!!
San Jouan guest house es practicamente un centro de bienestar
El hotel esta muy bien. Las habitaciones son muy amplias y estan muy limpias. Nos habían dicho que en roma los hoteles no eran muy buenos, pero la verdad es que con este hotel tuvimos suerte. Si se quiere ir un poco mas lejos, los medios de transporte (metropolitana y buses) estan a pocos metros del hotel. El servicio de recogida del aeropuerto funciona realmente bien y merece la pena, aunque la conducción por Roma resulte de infarto. Cerca del hotel encontraréis varios restaurantes muy buenos y nada caros, dejaros aconsejar por la recepción del hotel. Roma es una maravillosa elección y no defrauda.
Anche io ho saputo dell'hotel tramite amici, sono stata al San Jouan lo scorso week end ed ho trovato la struttura molto pulita e ben organizzata. Sono arrivata a piedi dalla Metro San Giovanni in 5 minuti. Le camere credo siano sei o cinque in tutta la struttura, la nostra (mia e del mio ragazzo n.d.r.) numero 5, sufficientemente grande, arredata con gusto (Etnico, indonesiano)e con un gran bel quadro alla parete. Ci ha accolto il Sig. Nestor, con grande cordialità ci ha dato le indicazioni per i bus, ristoranti ext. , perfetta la mappa di Roma che ci ha dato all'arrivo.
Just got back from 5 days in Rome, having booked the San Jouan Town House on the basis
El Hotel San Jouan es practicamente un centro de bienestar
Tuve ocasion de pernoctar 3 noches en la fiestas de fin ano ultimas y debo decir que la atencion es de primerisima calidad con precios razonables. Cuenta con habitaciones magnificas con aireacondicionado, tv, y telefono.
Una de las mayores ventajas que offrece su ubicacion es elhecho de su cercania a los lugares turisticos mas importantes. Esta a un paso de la basilica san Giovanni monumento historico romano. Igualmente desde el hotelse puede ir caminando hasta el coliseo e inclusive a plaza venecia, plaza Navona, plaza santa Maria Maggiore. Si se quiere ir un poco mas lejos, los medios de transporte (metropolitana y buses) estan a pocos metros del hotel.

Highly recommended , Great Location brilliant solution - San Jouan.
Nice idea choose a differnet kind of accomodation, instead the Hotels, we choose for this trip in Rome San Jouan Town House. We selected the accomodation based on Trip Advisor ratings and were not disappointed. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the room was new and absolutely clean. The position of the hotel was ideal, close to 'the sites'(Basilica, scala santa, pubs and restaurants, Coliseum, ext.) on a good bus route, near to the main station but far enough away for it not to be too busy. In the evening there was a selection of reasonably priced restaurants/cafes in the side streets at the rear of the hotel. (Try the pub Dum, just behind the San Jouan. Thanks to David and all the Staff
Sono tornato Lunedi da un fantastico Week end al San Jouan Guest House, sono stati 3 giorni magnifici, Ho scoperto l'Hotel tramite un caro amico che aveva soggiornato li' per capodanno. Il taxi ci ha direttamente portato al San Jouan per 50 euro da Ciampino (sono non piu' di 30 minuti) la camera era davvero come me le aveva descritte, molto confortevole e pulita. La toilette è spaziosa e la doccia comoda e ben arredata. Dopo le varie passeggiate culturali ad i Fori Imperiali ci siamo avventuarti sulla Via Appia dove abbiamo fatto (Io e mia moglie Marta) degli ottimi acquisti. La sala lettura dell' Hotel, nella chiostrina e' meravigliosa, con piante e musica di fondo. Davvero una soluzione fantastica per chi ha Voglia di essere in centro città (E' di fronte alla Basilica di San Giovanni e la Scala Santa e percorrendo Via Merulana, circa 400mt da Santa Maria Maggiore) avendo le stesse comodità di un Hotel 4 stelle ma con la quiete e la riservatezza di una piccola struttura. Ottima scelta !!!
Great Value, A dreamy escape
San Jouan: I found this Guest House a Great location to visit Rome as a Roman, not a classic Hotel, but a faboulous guest House in downtown. (Balinesians furniture an the Chiostro are ...faboulous)
I didn't found other info about this Guest house on the web, and I was sad about it ! A friend some weeks ago tell us about this new accomodation, Brilliant Suggestion! Thanks Chiara. Your English is good and we truly appreciated the warmth and attentiveness shown to us by you and your family. We'll be back!
