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.

... English and Italian and straight away asked if I needed any help.
I replied we just need to find which platform our train is leaving from, he took my tickets and straight away informed us we were at the wrong station....."not Roma Termini, the other suburban station in the next suburb. No problem"' he said, he glances at his watch and said "follow me. No time for taxi you will never make it, we take the suburban train line....follow ...
Here's the truth. My intended exploration on Rome was not inspired by history, art, politics or architecture – it was inspired by the movies. All of those great Hollywood Roman movies enjoy visiting the great Roman monuments, but only two monuments have ever stood out for me – they are the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. Lucky for us the cruise offered an excursion that visited both and then completed at the Piazza Navona - ...
... a mid morning snack of pizza bianco or pizza Rosso, bianco is just plain flatbread, Rosso has tomato sauce on. These are either eaten plain or with a little filling like a pizza sandwich - we tried a mortadella. We then went on into the Jewish quarter where persuading the bakery to sell you anything is nearly as difficult as in London where they change the pronunciation of challah daily like a Yiddish password. Their specialty was a baked ricotta cheese cake. We then ...
... scourging pillar, these were the thorns which pierced Jesus' head, the nail which pinned him on the Cross, literally the blood of Jesus Christ stained on the marble and the pillar on which he was stripped and scourged. These are no longer just stories I hear about in the Bible; Jesus' life and Passion are lived out right before my eyes. This is something you cannot deny. The same applies to the Saints. No longer are these just people I hear about, but I see ...
... out to be disappointingly vacant and empty, a sharp contrast to the reported shena****ns of the Circo in Ancient Rome. Lunch was on the menu, so we stopped off within hailing distance (get it?) of the Colosseum at a small pizzeria for a 4 formaggi with a salata mista. Very appetising it was too. Round the back of the Colosseum, up through the Parco Traiano towards the disappointing Giardino Piazza Vittorio, and back to the hotel/hostel to pick up our bag.I could write ...
