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.

... that it was as deep as a nuclear bunker and you'd need at least a replacement clutch to enter. Mike lived with a number of Italians who happened to have lived in Rome once so we had ourselves an evening route all planned out to hit a bunch of the local joints. There is such a tempo and great atmosphere in Rome, wherever you go the city is alive.
We hit Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel as one should. Opting for a guided tour was the ...
... one of the Assistant Resident Directors, and she told us the reason people don't hail in Rome is because there are other cars that try to pass off as taxis, that aren't legal or safe. And normally at taxi stands there are taxis waiting in lines to get people. We just came at the wrong time on a Saturday night, which is why we needed to hail a taxi.)
Oh, and we also all download maps of Rome so we can navigate and not get lost, without needing wifi! ...
Due to our later than needed start to see the Vatican City, Sistene Chapel and Basillica St Pietro yesterday, we had decided last night to get away much earlier today after finding out a lot more information on line about best time to access these places. The boys bodies though resisted a number of entreaties, sheets pulled off and even a squirt of water to Dylan's face (his idea!) so we left half an hour after we had hoped (at 8.15) and again walked to the magnificent old ...
... was great but it didn't feel that fast. We arrived at the airport early, got our boarding passes but couldn't check our bags until 2 hours before departure. The flight left on time and we arrived in Rome, Fiumicino Aeroporto in an hour. We collected our bags and decided to take the express train to Rome rather than a taxi. This train runs every 30 minutes and is called the Leonardo ...
