Travel Blogs from Rome
... heated up in the car!!!! When we got to the termini station we decided to get on a hop on off bus but had to wait over 30 minutes, got off at the Vatican but then had to get taxi so we would be on time for the tour.WE MADE IT! Sue and Shane stayed on the bus. The tour was fabulous, a lot of WOW moments but exhausted after doing it. Weather very hot and humid. Staying at the cardinal apartments again ...
Day 4 - Rome (Papal Audience and Vatican Museum Tour)
Following breakfast, we will prepare for today, which we will have in
our minds for many years to come. We will make our way to St. Peter’s
Square and visit of the Vatican
Museums, containing a group of the most impressive edifices with
hundreds of galleries filled with art treasures. See awe-inspiring
relics, and works of art donated throughout centuries ...
... us, as we sat there we watched a man with a monkey, he was really cute but naughty he was carrying on because he wanted coke cola. When the others turned up we drove for a while and stopped at a roadside fruit and nut stall on the side of the road, it was a lovely spot because we were looking at a lake. I had a young man offer me an almond as I took his photo, you have to be careful to make sure it's OK for a photo to be taken, you have to ask if it's ...
... up outside that seemed to go on for miles of people waiting to buy their tickets and even tour groups to get in, so we were really happy we spent the extra $$ for a "skip the line" tour! We made our way through the vatican museum to the Sistine Chapel. It was really neat seeing Michelangelo's famous paintings on the ceiling in person (that took him 9 years to complete). After that we headed into St. Peter's Basilica. It is huge! Way bigger than any of the other churches we had ...
... a room in the central area so I can walk to everything, but it's so very expensive! And it looks like I'd get a lot of joy out of many days there, but with the cost it's hard to decide. I know that if I worry too much about money I might miss things I'll regret, or not take full advantage of my time in Europe - perhaps I'll have a clearer idea after my time in Rome, since I'll know what three nights in a place feels like. Just for the record: hostels in Queenstown are seriously ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BelleSuite Rome
Fantastic, central and chic
This hotel had fantastically, helpful and friendly front desk staff. The rooms were new, modern and lovely. The hotel location was very good, especially for the trevi, steps, theatre. It was also close to the metro. Breakfast is served at a local cafe, and we found the people friendly and the food authentic. We had a wonderful honeymoon here and would not hesitate to return to the Belle suite. All our thanks to Bruno and Alessandro.
My g/f and I stayed here on our way through Rome to Florence. It has a great location and the staff were very helpful and courteous. We recieved an early wake-up call complete with incredible cappucino and croissants. We tried to get back in for a night before leaving, but they were booked up, but managed to find us an average place on the other side of the Termini. A nice touch. However, the neighbourhood on the other side of the Termini had a completely different character than the one the Belle Suites is located in. A few more "unsavoury types".
My boyfriend and I have been to Rome many times and we can both agree that this was the best hotel - quite, clean and freshly decorated. The staff are really nice and the location is great. If you're going to Rome, stay at the BelleSuite. You won't be disappointed.
Brilliant Bellesuite Boutique style! My boyfriend and I (29 and 36 years old) were probably the first guests in the suite and we were so lucky to find this place coming all the way from Western Australia. All we needed for spending the days travelling/exploring Rome was to come back to a room that's quiet, clean, modern and chic. Located in the centre of Rome next to Piazza della Repubblica (one of the most beautiful squares in Rome) and close to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Via Veneto. Bellesuite Rome is a great location to enjoy the historical attractions of the eternal city. We found it an excellent location and the owner Allesandro extremely welcoming, friendly, helpful and interested whether we were enjoying our stay. We started the day feeling like a local as the breakfast is served in a very popular cafe accross the road with a big selection of pattisserie's and our favourite was the sicilian pattisserie - delicious! If you are looking for a quiet, modern, clean room, great location and value for money and a fantastic owner/concierge...then you have found your bed in Rome!
Come for the price..stay for the service!
Having returned from our honeymoon in March we agreed that the Bellesuite Rome provided the best quality/value out of a number of illustrious boutique hotels we stayed in including L'Hotel in Paris, Ca Pisani in Venice and Millers Residence in London. It certainly surpassed our expectations in terms of price, location, quality and genuine friendliness. Rooms and public areas are cool, clean and calm; an oasis in an otherwise frantic city. Breakfast each morning in the charming cafe around the corner was more than adequate and Alessandro provides a level of attention and service only found in the best establishments. We will certainly be back!
Love the Bellesuite
This town house apartment is a delight. We stayed 26 Apr - 30 Apr 2005.
Smart, clean and comfortable. A stones throw away from the metro (Vatican, spanish steps, Trevi Fountainc)and the no 64 bus for Piazza Novouna, Pantheon, the market in Piazza Di Campo Dei Fiori and the Vatican). A 20 minute walk to the Ancient area.
Allessandro is briiliant, very helpful and knowledgable.
What a great find!!
The newly renovated BelleSuite Rome is a gem of a hotel which I feel rivals the much heralded Residenza Cellini which is on the same floor. Staff is helpful and pleasant... particularly Alessandro who can never seem to do enough for the guests. The rooms are spotless and decorated with a boutique hotel feel... modern without cold starkness and very, very comfortable. I am reluctant to say much more as the hotel is small and I definitely will be staying here the next time I visit Rome so I want to make sure there is availability for me!!!
we stayed few days ( december 2004) at Bellesuite and the staff , the hotel was excellent!!!
The room very clean, moderrn, very equipped LCD TV, DVD MOVIES
INTERNET. People very kind, Alessandro and Bruno help us for everything: restaurants, tours and outside trip.
We will definetly come back....
