Historical Traveler Reviews Amalia Hotel Rome
Really pleased with hotel
The amalia is a very good budget hotel, the rooms are clean and tidy if a bit on the small side, but then again you ain't going to Rome to spend time in your hotel room.
The breakfast was good in a nice room overlooking the main street.
Hotel staff very polite and helpful , even at 01.00 when we arrived.
About 10 minutes walk from St Peters and less to the museum.
Would recommend to anyone visiting Rome.
I recently stayed at Amalia Hotel for a few nights, and found it great for the price. It is low season at the moment, and the furnishings and room made it better than its 3 star standard. The bathroom was clean- except the towels; a few of them had stains. The hotel receptionist was great in helping us with transport queries, tourist attractions, and restaurant recommendations. Amalia was good- there is even a very cute receptionist!
I'll be back
very good palce in a very good location--paid 130Euro over Christmas--very clean comfortable room--across street from a great internet, VoIP shop--next door to great coffee place--recomended if this is your price
Hotel amalia-your best bet for rome accomodations
three of us spent two weeks in italy, december 2004. the employees at the hotel were incredibly helpful in solving all travel problems, confirming future reservations, making tour reservations, recommending places to eat, giving directions to locations. of note was "rebecca", in the front office. the housekeeping staff kept everything tip-top. the breakfast was presented in a most delicious manner. there was plenty of variety to choose from. the location of the hotel was withing walking distance to st. peter's sq., as well as several other landmarks. this is a hotel i recommend, and i will return to any time i am in rome.
Good budget hotel
This was a great place to stay, clean, quiet, central and with helpful staff who spoke good english.
Its right opposite the Metro and we travelled direct to Anagnina metro stop to catch a Contrel bus (stand no 1) to ciampino airport. The bus and metro fare was 2 euro.
Although there is no comunal area or lounge, the breakfast room was well stocked and easy to use. Stayed in January 05 and was really happy with it.
At the rear of the hotel is great little family restaurant 'Da Vito e Dina' ( via degli Scipioni 50) and there are plenty of others within walking distance as well as shops and stalls. You couldnt stay much close to the vatican Museum and St peters, and its still just a walk to the other atractions, the metro makes it all very easy.
Fan bloody tastic
We stayed in the Amalia over Christmas 2004 and found it to be magic. Our room was spacious, clean, warm (it was winter) and quiet. The bathroom was similar. The staff were terrific and let us use the left luggage room without hesitation.
The location is fantastic. St Peter's Square is 100m in one direction, the Vatican Museums 100m in another and a metro station 100m in the other. We enjoyed getting the metro in and then walking back to the hotel.
There also a plethera of good restaurants within walkin distance. We booked the hotel as part of package from the UK (ie not direct with the hotel) and it cost for the two of us the equivalent of £30 per night.
Quite frankly you'd be mad to go anywhere else.
Very Pretty Rooms, Pleasant Stay
This hotel must have been changed since the other reviews I read here. I found the rooms spacious, absolutely beautiful, and a pleasure to stay in.
My family of 5 booked 2 rooms. My husband and I stayed in the 2-room suite, and it was lovely. My kids stayed in a triple, which was also more than enough room. The prices were extremely reasonable -- Euro 165 for the suite, Euro 145 for the triple.
Breakfast was included and adequate.
Walking distance to St. Peter's and the Vatican (a few blocks).
Overall, a great value!
Unpleasant Hotel Amalia
just returned from a two week trip through out Italy during the heat wave. Hotel Amalia near the Vatican was one of the worst hotels we stayed at for the price ( about 200 euros for a triple) First we were told that because we didn't book a room with air conditioning, we would have none. When I insisted we needed one or we would leave, they put us in a drearily decorated noisy room with an air conditioner that made a loud sound every time it's fan went on. I complained and told them we couldn't stay more than one night. To their credit they were then able to put us in 4 star Hotel dei Consoli at a reduced rate for the next night ( that hotel was wonderful) but we were told at least three different reasons for the hotel's air conditoning problem, including that the fault was Italy's energy deal with France.
Average hotel near the Vatican
I was disappointed in the staff at the hotel. One female front desk employee was almost hostile and not in the least bit helpful. The rest of the staff was good. The room was in the back so street noise was not a problem but no view. The bathroom was modern but the shower leaked onto the floor. The breakfast was good. The rooms were beautifully decorated but very very small. This hotel is very close to the Vatican and the metro. The plus and minuses were about even but I will not stay at this hotel again.

Leisurely rise today as no queuing requirements anticipated today. We have been to the south & west of the city so far, so today we venture north/east to view the remaining 'tick box' sights. Set off about 10 firstly to Piazza Chigi, then onto Mausoleo Augusto. We then walk a short distance along the river until we divert back into a massive square Piazza del Popolo, which has too massive churches ...
... s Square to hear the Pope speak. I left my hostel at about 9, decided to take the metro rather than the bus, bought my ticket, and started trying to make my way to the train. Which is exactly what 3,000 other people decided to do. Metros arrive every 3 to 5 minutes, usually, and it's generally pretty easy to get on one. Not in Rome on a holiday weekend that is also a First Sunday! I don't think I've ever been in such a crowd! It took me over an hour just to get on ...
... staircases, to reach the top, where an incredible view is waiting for all climbers. After we reached the bottom, finally, we made our way over to the Pantheon, a building that was built to worship the ancient Roman Gods, but when Christianity saved it from being knocked down, was converted into a Christian Church Santa Maria ad Martyres. Over the years the virtually unaltered, preservation the Christians promised was ...
... that the Pope was giving an address. So we had a face to face with the Pope. Well we did see him in the distance. Then off along the river to see some of the other site. We made our way to the Spanish Steps & it was covered with hundreds of people. Then down to the Trivi fountain. That was a disappointment it was surrounded by scaffold & no water. It never looks as good the second time. It ...
... 2 stupid tourists. But he was right. Asked someone else and very much to our surprise she was coming! So we grabbed a spot along the line and waited her arrival. She just drove by in a car but we still saw her! About half of her face though cause she's so little but nonetheless we saw the queen! We then walked around Vatican City and attempted to find gardens but we had no idea and then just kind of passed it along and sat in the sun some ...
