Travel Blogs from Rome
First things first, we booked our trip using www.europeandestinations.com. I really liked this website because it let us customize everything without having to book everything separately. We entered the day we wanted to leave, how many nights we wanted to stay in each city, and how we wanted to get from city to city (train vs car vs plane). It let …
... on the move and the traffic was building up to a peak hour crescendo. Beeping horns, blazing sirens, cars screeching off from traffic lights - the noise in sharp contrast to the serene quietness from which we had just come.
We walked from our lovely little local area along cobblestone streets and through little piazzas all with trattoria around the perimeter and some with a church - often not ornate outside but gobsmackingly ornate inside - ...
Rose and shone to an early breakfast again delivered to the room. Wot, no ass's milk! A quick stroll across town to our pre-booked entry to the Galleria Borghese (Google will fill you in!). My research claimed this place is a "must" while in Rome. It's certainly in a quiet and smart area of town. Pleasant park land, even with a 'play area for dogs'. Scoopers obligatory? There was no "skipping the line" here. Just the one line and it was ...
... freedom to choose our own seats when we boarded the flight. This was the "well" thought out process to save more costs when checking in passengers. This process worked out great for us as we grabbed a window seat up near the front, but equally, not so great for a mother who was running late with three screaming kids who all had to be separated in the aircraft individually.
The plane ride felt like it was almost over before it began and unless you were sitting next to one ...

Historical Traveler Reviews ARS Hotel Rome
Stayed in Hotel Ars for three nights in February 2005.
The hotel is excellent. Very clean and modern. The rooms are a good size and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
The bus trip into the City Centre is fine - the buses are frequent and the bus stops well signposted - it takes 15-20 mins. It is nice to head out of the City to a quiet hotel after a hard day of sightseeing in the busy city centre.
I will use the hotel again and recommend it to others.
We stayed at the ars hotel in sept 2003. We had a double standard room which was lovely, very modern and clean. Being out of town was not a problem at all with such reliable buses. My only advice would be not to get a taxi from termini as being tourists we were ripped off! the buses are frequent and only take approx 20mins to get to the hotel. The all inclusive breakfast was basic but was fine to keep us going for the whole day! We found the hotel staff very pleasant. We would definately stay here again. Do agree the shower is very small!!!!
We stayed at the ARS Hotel for 3 nights and were glad to be away from downtown Rome, which I experienced as loud and overcrowded. The ARS hotel is situated in a side street of private villas and looks really charming. Although you just have to walk down the street for two minutes to reach the next supermarket and bus stations on a busy crossing, it is absolutely quiet as soon as you close the windows. To the city center, you have to take the bus (90 express, goes to main station) or the 60 (goes to sights like Colloseum). It's a 25 min. ride for 1 Euro (valid 75 minutes) (tickets for 3 days: 11 Euro) - the only minus: buses are regularly overcrowded and the ride deos not feel really good for your back - a true adventure!
Nice, quiet and secluded
Ars Hotel is about 3 miles from the city centre, you need to take the 90 Express bus from the Centre of the Colosseum district and take 30 minutes, and a great deal cheaper than Roman taxis! The hotel is really tucked away on a back street and there's not much to do nearby, although the restaurant recommended by the very friendly English speaking staff is superb, which is round the corner. This hotel is modern, clean, extremely quiet and good for couples, try and request a room with the large windows though, we only had two skylights. Well worth going up a star rating in Rome.
This Hotel was orginally a house, and whilst it has been superbly updated and modernised, it is nonetheless a small hotel, situated outside historic Rome city Centre. Bus services from Hotel to city centre are excellent, but travelling time is 20+ minutes from Hotel to Termini Train Station. This may not suit all!. The hotel boasts a gym, with sauna and steam room but this is not technically true. There is a tiny room allocated for 4 pieces of gym equipment, and there is NO sauna or Steam room, but a steam shower is available. However, the staff are superb and go out of their way to make your stay as fantastic as possible. If you don't mind the buses, it's lovely, but if you do want to be close to city centre, then go elsewhere!
Extremely good value
Hotel Ars, despite its rather unfortunate name, is a great place to stay in Rome. It has recently been refurbished to an extremely high standard and in a modern but comfortable style. The reception staff were extremely helpful and recommended a lovely local restaurant for us to visit. This was full of locals and was not on the tourist trail at all. The centre of Rome is a bus ride away but this passes the end of the road. We booked online and got a very good deal for our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to other guests.
