Travel Blogs from Rome
We arrived in Rome on Tuesday afternoon after a quite long road trip from Bari. The distance we covered is 453,9 kilomatres. The road trip, however, wasn't tiring (considering the distance) and that's because of the good quality of the Autostrada, which is probably the most relaxing road I've ever been to. We made two stops and grabbed the chance …
What a day we had today. Left early as we had a lot to do and see. Started with a visit to the Vatican, Sisteen Chapel and St Peters Church all of which were spectacular. The Sisteen Chapel was smaller than I expected. The artwork is unbelievable. The amount of people there was the most amount we have seen and it was very hot.

We have all heard that saying so I muttered it to the kids. "When in Rome...." Travis replied with one of his boyisms.... "Dad, we don't have to do as they do because they all smoke cigarettes. Does that mean we have to smoke cigarettes? NO." The boy has a point there. I stayed away from the "What happens in Vegas..." mantra. Speaking of not ...

Next we walk through a series of hallways while Elaine points out that this building was never designed to be a museum but rather these rooms were the private residences and working areas of popes and cardinals. We see Roman and Greek statues and mosaics on the walls.

As my mom and I are discussing it I suddenly look down when I hear a splash and notice her cappuccino spill EVERYWHERE right in front of her feet in front of everyone. Even the gypsies gave her a dirty look. So I point this out to her and immediately we cannot stop laughing. Dani is at the other side cracking up saying you guys are a mess. Yes...I do agree with her. So I push my mom away and tell her ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBarcelo Aran Park Rome
The hotel was very nice and clean, which is an important aspect. The restaurant on the seventh floor had an exceptional view of the area around the hotel and the food was of very good quality. The only problem that I had was that it was easy to get lost on your way to the elevator.

Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Aran Park Rome
Great hotel but not for tourists
OK, so others have explained in some depth that this is not a tourist hotel. So lets get that out of the way and concentrate on the quality of the hotel for business customers.
The hotel is convenient for the EUR district of Rome, which is a short taxi journey away. The check-in was smooth and curteous needing only a passport and no credit card swiping.
The room was on the large side with balcony (looking out on nothing in particular). There was a shower and bath in a very clean bathroom.
The bar area was on the strangely characterless side and is best described as "functional", although the spicy nibbles provided were surprisingly tasty!
The restaurant was on the 7th floor and we didn't use it apart from breakfast.
The only small problem came at check-out when I was presented with a bill that should already have been paid. A colleague was to have done this, but I got to the reception before they had a chance to do so. My problem, not the hotels - but even though I explained that it would be resolved within 5 minutes as my colleague was just arriving, I received a rather frosty response and was told in no certain terms to "sort it out".
I will be re-visiting this area on business in the new year and will ask that I be booked into this hotel again.
Una mala ubicación, un buen hotel
Aunque cuando me alojé aquí hacía poco que el hotel había abierto, el servicio fue extremadamente bueno y cada habitación tenía su propio balcón. El principal fallo de este hotel es su ubicación, dado que es imposible alojarse en este lugar sin tener que alquilar un coche o dejarse una fortuna en taxis.
Un hotel muy bueno
Un hotel muy bueno. Su ubicación es muy tranquila, las habitaciones son espaciosas y está muy cerca de la zona euro en Roma. El personal es muy agradable y muy profesional. El efecto artístico del vestíbulo y el de la entrada del hotel es increíble. Me alojé durante 3 noches en un viaje de negocios y es un lugar muy cómodo, el único problema es el acceso a Internet en las habitaciones...
Sehr gutes Hotel
Ein sehr gutes Hotel, ruhige Lage, geräumige Zimmer, und sehr nahe am EU Bezirk in Rom gelegen. Freundliches und professionelles Personal, großartige Kunst in der Lobby and am Hoteleingang ... War hier drei Tage lang auf einer Geschäftsreise und fand es sehr bequem, das einzige Problem war das Internet im Zimmer ...
Schlechte Lage, nettes Hotel
Obwohl das Hotel gerade erst eröffnet hatte, als ich da war, war der Service extrem gut und jedes Zimmer hatte seinen eigenen Balkon.
Der einzige Nachteil des Hotels ist die Lage, es ist unmöglich, hier ohne einen Mietwagen zu bleiben oder Unsummen für Taxen auszugeben.
Nice hotel, horrible location
First I would like to say that this hotel was not our "selected" hotel but a selection from Golden Tulip Mecenate Palace in Rome. It seems that Mecenate Palace overbooked or made a scheduling error that required us to stay here for the first day of our trip.
Honestly, the hotel itself is very nice and the room was not too bad. We just needed a place to hold our stuff and it fit that mold.
Unfortunately, the staff didn't seem very helpful when we first showed up. We soon discovered it was because Mecenate Palace booked us for the WRONG day. It was clear things were not getting off to a good start.
Getting to this hotel was a pain in the butt (to say the least). We took the Metro to Laurentina station and followed the directions from Aran Park's website. After searching and asking numerous rude people at the station, we finally located the bus stop about a mile from the Metro stop. Then we waited.. and waited.. until the 762 bus showed up. The bus driver wouldn't help us but luckily a couple of tourists realized we were looking for the hotel and told us where to get off the bus.
So, after getting off the bus we had to drag our luggage up hill for another half mile to get to the hotel (luckily there were signs).
Anyhow, let me just sum it up by saying that this hotel would probably be more highly rated if it weren't in the middle of nowhere. The food was also overpriced and not very good. In a pinch, this hotel will serve the purpose.. but I wouldn't go unless forced.
Bad Location, Nice hotel
Although this hotel was newly opened when i stayed here, the service was extremely good and each bedroom had its own balcony.
The main detractor of this hotel was it's location, it's impossible to stay here without a hire care or paying a fortune in taxi's.
Very good hotel
A very good hotel,
Quiet location, spacious rooms, and very close to the EUR zone in Rome
Friendly and professional staff, and great art affect in the lobby and at the entrance of the hotel...
Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip, and find it very convenient, the only problem is internet in the rooms....
Simply shining hotel... terrible location, rooms and beds are terrible...
