Historical Traveler Reviews Astoria Garden Rome
Good hotel, TERRIBLE location
The hotel is lovely - nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable with a decent breakfast. But the location is dreadful, and extremely scary at night (and I'm from Brooklyn, so clearly I do not scare easily to sketchy nighttime activites). Pay a bit more and stay in a better location, like near the Spanish Steps.
We stayed at the Astoria Garden Hotel in December 2003 and found it to be a great little hotel. We used their shuttle service from the airport for EURO 55.00 (for 4 people) which saved us a lot of aggravation. The hotel is located between two metro stops which made getting around very easy. There were also lots of good, inexpensive restauransts in the area. The showers were wonderful and the staff was very helpful.
Great Place to Stay
After two tiny showers in London and Paris, getting the showers here seemed huge! Very clean, spacious, and the staff is extremely friendly.
The hotel is a short walk from Termini, which gets you where ever you want to go. Breakfast was acceptable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Rome.
The Astoria Garden Hotel is Fantastic
The Astoria Garden Hotel was fantastic. The rooms were large, well decorated and clean. It was nice to be able to relax in the garden after a day's sight seeing. The staff made us feel very welcome and were very friendly.
Excellent hotel that perfectly balances class with value.Within comfortable walking distance of the famous sights and areas (10mins), this hotel benefits from being slightly away from the traffic and other tourists. That is not to say that this hotel is remote its a turning away from the main train/bus/metro terminal and so you can get anywhere very quickly.The hotel is bright and airy, and really has that touch of class that makes a holiday in Rome special. The rooms are simple, but of high quality and have the two essentials a good bed and a great shower! Staff are always friendly and courteous, going out of their way to make your stay comfortable.Truly a wonderful hotel that I would eagerly recommend to anyone.

... and there was a fair bit of information provided in this regard. One sign that caught our interest depicted the order of events of a session from the gladiator era. In the morning the executions would occur. So people who had been sentenced to death for one reason or another would be lifted into the arena via the cages that emerged from the pit below arena floor level wearing no clothes and brandishing no weapons.

... could spend a week in this museum alone. And the best was yet to come. The Sistine Chapel is just crazy beautiful and you have to just sit down and look and look. You could sit there all day to see all of it because there is just so much detail and so much going on and the colours are so beautiful. They were very strict in there and you can't take pictures but I managed to sneak a couple. We were sad when the museum closed and we had to leave. When ...
... the minibus trip into Rome, with Deb pointing out various sights as we travelled along. It's so exciting, coming into a famous city that you have never visited before. It's about 33km from the airport to our Hotel Madrid, near the Spanish Steps.
At this late hour, the Hotel was warm and we were welcomed by a real character who mans the reception at night. Deb and I were fascinated by him. He is very efficient and loud, and his accent is cute! The lift is ...

... a travel agent (one I did't use) wanted us to tour Europe by bus. Cameo factory over. Lunch and Pompeii is next. We see Vesuvius and have been told about the eruption 79AD 24th August. Same day we are here. Now that is exciting. Two o'clock and we still haven't seen Pompeii. We've been shuffled off the bus again and cattle guided to our restaurant. Padlocked into a hall with a bus load of tourists. A waiter who will not sway from the ...
