Travel Blogs from Rome
I know this blog has taken me a while to write, but there have been some issues connecting to the internet over here. Mainly, it cost 15 Euros per 24 hours at our hotel in Rome! That's like $25 or so with the current ****** exchange rate! So, yeah, we didn't do that every night. Then since we got here in London, the hotel's …
Rome is BUSTLING!
What a beautiful and interesting city. Everyone here is dressed to the nines. Also, everyone smokes. As they ride their scooters or drive their tiny cars. You can tell who the Americans are. We wear shorts and have our maps in our hands. The language barrier is a bit of a challenge, but Beau has …

... due to the overtly sandy consistency to the soil they sat upon. To counter this embarrassment, they thought it best to wedge stones under the left side, which worked for another few years before it began to over correct and fall to the right as we see it today. More tiers were added, Galileo thought it great fun to climb to the top and conduct experiments in gravity by repeatedly dropping items off the top for his students, and by 1980 it was leaning 5 metres ...
... I did get a slice of a kiwi torte which was delicious.
Today I got my first Italian test back and got an A wooohoo!! It was a lot easier than I thought it would be so I am glad I didn't waste my valuable time studying for it all of last week. This week I have a quiz in one of my Management classes and then I will be headed to Paris (Parigi) for the weekend! I am excited for my first trip out of the country and hope to have lots to report next week :)

Historical Traveler Reviews Ambasciatori Palace Hotel Rome
Rome in August is very hot, and empty of Romans; as a result, hotels there run a promotional rate for the month of August and part or all of July. Just make sure you get the right rate.
I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Ambasciatori Palace Hotel in Rome. While I usually don't follow up with my opinions on hotel stays, I feel compelled to share my opinion on this site since I relied on it heavily to decide where to stay. For context, I'm a 28 year-old single woman who travelled alone and usually likes very nice / almost luxurious accomodations.
Very good hotel. Great location.
The rooms were very nice, the bathrooms were spacious will all the amenities. The service was exceptional. Just too hot.
This establishments advertises itself as a 5 star hotel. We stayed there in December 2004, our room was 2 star at best. At a rate of about $450 a night, we felt this was an outrage.
Also, we had booked through their association, WSL hotels, and had received an email from them offering airport pick-up for 47 Euro. When we tried to order that service, we were told it would be 70 Euro. We protested, and they reduced the fare to 60 Euro, still a big mark-up from the offer in the email.
We stayed at this hotel 9/13/2004 - 9/16/2004. The location was great. We booked our room through hotels.com. Our room was a good size, but not very nice. The bathroom was huge, but old, with a broken toilet. On the other hand, another couple we were with had an absolutely gorgeous room, complete with a sitting area and full length windows that opened onto Via Veneto. Our room was supposed to include the buffet breakfast, however we were charged 40 Euros per day when we checked out. Unfortunately the hotel staff had kept our confirmation when we checked in, leaving us no proof that the breakfast was included in the rate. The breakfast was the worst ever, runny eggs, warm milk and stale breads. Had we known that we were being charged 40 Euros, we would not have eaten there. Except for the location, the hotel was absolutely terrible. No question in our mind - we won't stay there again.
Stayed at this hotel for three nights in July. Front desk staff were okay but not overly friendly. Location was good; we walked everywhere except St. Peter's/Vatican. Lobby was attractive but our rooms were sadly in need of refurbishing. We had connecting rooms which were quite large, however, they needed painting, walls were pretty bare. (I think there was one small picture.) Rug had big ripple across the room. One curtain was ripped. It was interesting that most hotels have hotel pens in the room and this one had a tiny pencil like you get at mini-golf. The bathrooms were good; our room actually had two bathrooms. Breakfast was good. There was a Hard Rock Cafe right next door if you felt the need for a burger (without a service or cover charge). Probably would try someplace different next time but it wasn't awful.
I stayed 5 days in the Roma Ambasciatori, and loved every moment of it. I had a single, and it was very nice and big. My room overlooked the front of the hotel, which was a pleasure. The bathroom was gigantic with peachy marble. Everything was very clean and well maintained.
Great location - Poor Room
After a great and tiring day of touring it was very dissapointing to come back to our hotel room in the afternoon. We booked a special rate through Amex and basically you get what you pay for. It was a corporate room and one of the worst appointed hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. It did not include breakfast so can't comment on that. The staff were okay, not the happiest of chappies but did their job in helping us with directions etc. The location is fabulous, a few steps away from the Metro station and Via Veneto is a lovely road to walk up and down. I would not stay here again.
Nice lobby / not so nice room
The lobby and other common areas of the hotel are beautiful but our room was quite a disappointment. The room was a nice large size and the bathroom well appointed. However, the decor of the room was not very impressive. There were no pictures on the walls and the matresses were from "ancient Rome." The walls in the room were so thin that I could hear our neighbors talking and could smell cigarette smoke from next door. On the other hand, the staff was extremely nice and helpful, giving us directions and arranging a ride back to the airport. The location was also excellent.
Great location, clean and neat
Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms. We would happily stay there again! We had 2 rooms for our family for 3 nights in June, 2004 and were quite happy with everything about the hotel. Breakfast was good also.
