... detector to get into a museum but this was literally a whole new country...pretty cool! We were one of the first groups in making our way through the museum looking through the Popes' various treasures and artifacts from as early as the time of antiquities. After the early world museum section we made our way over to the other side and headed to the crown jewel of them all....the Sistine Chapel. En route was a zig zag path of more museums and rooms that continued to ...
... flight I still managed to try 8 different ATM's before I finally was able to withdraw euro's and make it to Vatican City and Piazza Navona. The whole group of architecture students went to dinner with our professors from CUA and then we went out for a couple of drinks. It was a long but fun first day... tomorrow we are scheduled to tour the first 3/7 hills of Rome.
... where we were able to get new tickets for a train leaving in 20 minutes. We grabbed a quick burger at maccas and got on the train. This train was nice. We watched half a movie and then got off in Naples to get the next train to Sorrento. At first we couldn't find any train to Sorrento until we realised we head to go downstairs and get more of a metro train. We found the ticket booth, bought our tickets, and got to the platform with a few minutes to spare. Sorrento here we ...
... that was put on top of it. I can remember being in Savona; 'a train leaves for Zurich at 9pm and arrives the next day at 7am. Great! A bed for the night'.
Eating also had its moments. I know I irritated the waiter in Venice by occupying in jeans and tea-shirt the prime position in the restaurant overlooking the Grand Canal and ordering nothing but plain spaghetti and tap water while his more resourced clients had to sit elsewhere.
... for the better? Or are we just getting worse?
After the Colosseum we went to some ruins of the Roman Forum, later grabbing some spaghetti for lunch. We decided to head to a cool 4D show about the history of Rome, called Time Machine. It started raining and we ran to the Time Machine place. We had a few minutes before the show started and I grabbed a yummy hot chocolate out of a vending machine. The show was pretty cool! The seats we sat in moved around as we ...

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.
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.
