... entry tickets. But most pitiful of all, the overacting beggars. There were several old women (all dressed by Charles Dickens) hunched over and leaning on wobbling walking sticks wailing away with cups in hand. One old man decided it was necessary to lie crumpled up on the footpath banging his walking stick on a metal manhole cover while wailing for money. All this together with the endless souvenir shops selling Pope calendars and all kinds of Vatican memorabilia ...

... of our time in the Vatican was to get to see the Sistine Chapel. This might sound slightly heretic, but I was rather underwhelmed by this! Probably my impression had something to do with the thousand other people squashed into the room at the same time. The chapel did not really feel like a chapel at all, it is a large cube shaped room with paintings on all four walls as well as the ceiling, it felt more like part of an amazing art museum than a church. Nonetheless, ...

We parked on the sidewalk in front of the embassy....only way you can sort of tell is the flag....not a nice area it seems....but got in....and had to turn off phones and check everything into lockers. Then they let us up. Good thing no one was there.....the gal I talked to was at the window all excited we made it....seems they had a bet running we were lost. She was soooooo ...

One guy 'reluctantly' agreed to sell me a scarf for 5 euros after some hard bargaining on my part but when I gave him the money he complained saying he wouldn't make a profit and he wanted 12 euros instead. I said, well you agreed on 5 euros I'm not giving you any more. He tried again, but I walked off. Luckily he had given me the scarf before I paid him, otherwise I think I would have lost out!! One other seller ran after me when I refused ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Archimede Rome
A very nice hotel, with friendly staff and clean rooms (if a little small). A bit surprising that the entrance lobby is huge, with marble floors and a massive seating area, but you can't even get a cup of coffee and there is no restaurant or bar. The rooms are spotless with very nice bathroom, but as someone said before, only Italian tv channels (not even the ubiquitous CNN!) Breakfast is plentiful. Staff were very nice and helpful (especially when about a half hour after we had checked out I came staggering back in with a major nosebleed!! They ran for some ice and made sure I was comfortable. They couldn't have been more helpful!)The hotel position is fantastic, about 20 mins walk to the Colosseum, but right on top of the station with access to both underground lines and bus routes. The area is OK as well (didn't see any ladies of the night or other unsavory characters!). I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel, and would definitely stay there again.
very small but clean room with good (twin)beds. Fresh towels every day. Friendly staff. Ideal location.
Very nice hotel although rooms are basic,no tea facilities, badly located plugs - only one we could use was beside the door!. Excellent location for metro or buses (opposite termini)but downside of this being didn't feel safe venturing too far at night. Basic information from staff at hotel best to go to tourist office - just round the corner.You can walk to most of the attractions from the hotel but you will need to get the bus to the Vatican.
Good Location for busses and Taxis, Hotel should be 2 star. Smallest Bedroom I ever stayed in but it was clean. No english channells on TV so no News in English, make sure you do not stay toolong in this Hotel. No Bar, Terrible
Breakfast. do Not expect to get any Help from Reception staff, they do not understand engish. really if you can avoid going to Rome do.
Nos encanto la ubicacion para ser la primera vez que estabamos en Roma... a 2 cuadras de Termini asi es que nunca podras perderte. Lo negativo es que pedimos una habitacion para dos personas de luna de miel y al llegar el cuarto tenia 2 camas, pegadas. No es precisamente lo ideal para quien va de luna de miel... tenia bañera pero sin cortina ni puerta, asi es que despues de una ducha el baño entero terminaba mojado. Pedimos que nos cambiaran a una habitacion con 1 cama y nos dijeron que tenian otra pero la cama era mas pequeña que las dos juntas, decidimos cambiar. Efectivamente la cama era mas pequeña y tambien el cuarto y el baño, ya no tenia bañera, sino, ducha pero con puerta. Ahi nos quedamos, apenas cabian las maletas y nosotros, pero estuvo mejor. La television solo con canales en italiano si teniamos suerte de que se viera algo.
Above average hotel. Location was excellent- within walking distance of all major attractions and v. near Termini if you want to use metro, bus or taxi. Rooms were clean and adequately furnished. The shower was positioned over the bath and there wasn't a screen but this didn't prove to be too problematic. Fresh, clean towels everyday. Lifts to all floors.Reception staff were very friendly and even helped to improve our limited Italian!! Breakfast was cold buffet and you could have as much as you wanted.Recommended.
We have just spent a week at this hotel with another couple, both booked double rooms but both got twin beds pushed together, found myself falling down the crack between the beds a couple of times!! They were comfy enough though-nice and firm.
I booked a non-smoking twin room for myself and a friend, but we were given a double bedroom that smelled of smoke. The receptionist tried to convince me that it was two single beds that could be split and that it was a non-smoking room. As I could see it was a double bed base that could not be separated into two, even though it had twin mattresses, I was annoyed to be treated like an idiot. There were also ash trays in the room, which seemed illogical if it was non-smoking. I was told in a po-faced manner that we would have to wait an hour and were eventually given a family room with a smaller child's bed and two proper twin beds! It also smelled OK and we were very happy with it. After this everything was fine. The location is perfect, the rooms are well soundproofed, and the breakfast buffet was OK (but where was the hot buffet mentioned in a previous review?). The mini bar was reasonable, but we were most disappointed to have a black and white TV with no satellite channels and a channel changer that didn't work. Nevertheless, I would stay there again because it is excellent value for money. I would hope, however, that next time I am given what I have booked.
Was ok but.....
Rooms very very small and the hotel smells of cigarette smoke (maybe it was just my room 119) - receptiona area is lovely and the staff are great.
Breakfast was good and the location is excellent.
The breakfast area is old and in need of paint but it was ok - i would stay here again defin. given the location and the price.
Excellent hotel.. The staff were wonderful, the bedrooms were clean spacious and sound proofed. The free soft drinks from the mini bar also made a pleasant change. The hotel is central to all tourist spots so I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The buffet breakfast with hot and cold choices could not have been better. We arrived at this hotel with no reservation as our previous hotel was full on arrival and managed to negotiate a discount. The staff spent a lot of effort ensuring we could stay for the remaining 3 days. As a final plus the hotel allows free internet access and use of a printer which was a lovely inexpensive way of keeping in touch with home.
