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.

... each room - interesting!!
After the tour we wandered about ourselves for a bit before catching the return journey back to Rome. We met up with Andrew who said his day had been good - he wandered about the streets, took in some sights and saw several 'saldi' shops - initially thinking they were Italy's largest franchise! ...but quickly worked out it was Italian for 'sale' - gave us all a giggle!
We started out not so well in rome as we were staying at a B and B and they guy only checked people in before 7pm. Because we missed our 1st train we were cutting it close but our crazy taxi driver got us there just in time. Our host stelvio was lovely and talked a lot about all the things to do in rome. We went for our 1st dinner closeby which was pretty average in hindsight. We shared a pizza and had a carbonara and matriciana pasta. The next day ...
... decide not to look at the Egyptian items as we don't feel it is fair to the Egyptians- especially seeing there are two mummies in there which people are allowed to take photos of. I feel this is so disrespectful to the mummy who was originally buried in their home in egypt to be taken from there and be shown on display for thousands of people to point at and goo and gah at through a glass cabinet. Very sad! Through to the sisteenth chapel- so amazing! Over 300 individual paintings ...
It may be the continuous stream of people on the streets, the scent of freshly brewed coffee, or maybe even the archaeological sites of the fallen Roman Gods that attract people to the capital, but whatever it may be the bug certainly bit me.
On May 8, Ricco and myself embarked on our very first journey overseas together as a couple and it was one that saw us cover various parts of the north of Italy.

... able to get a peek into the hall leading to the Pope's private quarters, something rarely seen by the public. It was as elaborately decorated as the chapel. Our guide shared photos he had of the enclave that was sequestered in the chapel to elect the new pope, and pointed out the window through which the smoke is vented to announce election results.
