Today I went on a tour of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel. I had my favorite tour guide :) The Vatican Museum is one of those things where you could come so many times and never see enough. My tour guide actually told us that if we looked at each thing in the museum for 1 minute it would take us 12 years to get through the entire museum. After going through, I believe ...
Once we had left and were heading over the entrance bridge, Dan spotted my friend Monique. She was travelling to Rome, Poland and England with her family and we planned on catching up with them in London. Of all of the bridges in all of Rome, she wandered across the one we were on!
We found a great piazza with a street market happening. Here we stopped for lunch of filled panini rolls, fresh strawberries and banana. We headed home earlier than usual ...
... that has four layers all built on top of each other during separate times. The basement was first built thousands of years ago and then when that was considered obsolete, people jaut built over top of it. Therefore each of the layers gets older as you go down. We all met cup afterwards at the Spanish Steps. The square was built in 1629. There really wasn't too much to see at the Spanish Steps so headed to Pantheon. ...
... into the metal railing so that it left decent scratches along half of the bus, left chunks of metal from the railing wedged into the side of the bus, dented the air vents, and ripped off the indicator light. Not good first impressions that's for sure... Martin has never scared us with his driving. :) We arrived safely in Rome (obviously, because we had Martin) at about 1pm, and did a coach tour of the city. We got a rough ...
The tour marathon resumes today with a visit to Vatican City, more specifically to the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica. We must rise early to arrive at our 7:55am meeting point. We catch a cross town bus that gets us in the neighborhood of Vatican City and then a tram which gets us closer. We manage to arrive at 7:55 on the button - a miracle in itself!
The Pope sends his regrets that he ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Baltic Rome
What A Dump!!
Too hot in summer (no AC), hard to find, and noisy. Would never stay there again. We only stayed one night and it was not a good deal even though it was a free night (I would never pay to stay there) thru our travel planner for our first night. We moved the next day to a decent, clean hotel and were happy to leave the Baltic.
I came to this hotel in february 2002, The hotel is right and notning special to point out.
For the price (I paid 60 euros for a double room), I think it's correct and not to far from the middle of the city.
Good for the money
My boyfriend and I went to Rome in March 2005. We arrived very late on the night of our check in, only to find out that we were not given the room we had booked 2 months earlier. We booked a double, and ended up with a closet with 2 cots in it! After complaining, we were told the hotel was full that night, but they would move us the next day. Luckily, they did and we ended up with the room we originally booked for the rest of the week. The double room was perfectly fine and a nice size. Plenty of room to move around. The shower was extremely small, and was difficult to move in, and was actually just a partitioned off section of the bathroom itself. Breakfast was minimal, just croissants and rolls. Overall a nice place though, very charming building and close to everything, and much less expensive than other hotels in the area.
Safe and clean but no toilet!
Its a clean and safe hotel with good secuity but be prepared to walk up 4 flights of stairs since you're not allowed to use the lift with luggage. And remember to ask if you can get a room with a toilet/wc as we were shocked to discover our room didn't have one. The hotel is in a safe location and round the corner are good selection of resturants to choose from.
Was not impressed!
Proximity to the main train station is good. The hotel is divided among two buildings so it is a bit confusing. The rooms are small and the shower stall in the room was flimsy at best. The walls are not very soundproof so if you have noisy neighbors or guest talking in the halls, you hear everything. I would not stay there again even though the price was good.
Good value, friendly staff
We arrived at the Hotel Baltic near midnight after our train was delayed, only to find that the hotel covers 2 buildings and we were in the other one! Never mind, we paid 100EUR for a twin room, which had very comfy beds, minibar and a small but clean bathroom with shower.
I was worried about being on such a main road, but the windows are double-glazed, and there are strong shutters to keep all the noise out.
The area is OK, a bit of a hike to the central touristy parts but a pleasant walk. This is obviously a residential area, which we were grateful for after seeinf the concentration of hotels elsewhere, with some amazing delis and cafes around.
