This is a second attempt. I tried sending from Paris but I guess the Internet timed out before I pressed send and I wasn't smart enough to save as I went along. We're home now but I'm sure you're all wondering what happened those last 7 days. In a word, plenty. Here's Rome. By the way, this is the normal keyboard. I don't have to go searching all …
... hand over the left shoulder. Oops! We talked for awhile before trying to find our restaurant. Unfortunately, we were unable to do so, but made an agreement to come back for lunch the following day.
At this point, we were starving for dinner, so we stopped at the first place we saw that looked decent, a restaurant called Numbs. We each ordered Prosecco, and I ordered bruschetta. Since I had yet to have spaghetti carbonara in Italy, I knew I ...
... and seeing this ancient building getting closer and closer left me a little thunderstruck. The old floor of the Colosseum is gone and you can see the maze below where the exotic animals would be waiting to devour the gladiators. We even got to see the bones of a few animals that were excavated from below the Colosseum. We took another one of Monica's dinner recommendations and ate at a place called Piccolo Buco. I ordered a penne pasta with arrabbiata sauce and Tony ordered ...

The museum galleries are incredible, the Gallery of Maps, the Candelabra Gallery, the Tapestry Gallery, Statue Gallery, the Hall of Muses with the Belvedere Torso sculpture, a very important and influential piece again from the 1st century. So much to take in, makes you wonder ...

I went through this gate that was off limits and looked locked but upon further inspection i could see that it wasn't. I went through and over to the edge to snap a couple photos of the gorgeous view and as I approached, there was a seagull that started going crazy. It sounded like an alarm reminding ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
I stayed in this hotel last year of the same month. I could have ranked this hotel a 5 star but I decided not to because of some things that happened when I arrived.
I arrived Rome via Cathay Pacific Airways flight 293, which left Hong Kong at 1205 and arriving in Rome after 13 hours which gave you a real tiring experience. Eventually, I arrived Rome at 730 local time and by 900, I was already at the hotel. I didn't expect to be accommodated right away but I was expecting a little courtesy from the front desk. The front desk could be in bad mood during that time and was answering me rudely the whole time. So I left and had breakfast at the nearest opened restaurant which was a couple of blocks from the hotel. By 1000, I was back at the hotel and just waited patiently till an assistant approached us to be in our room by 1100.
Well, I stayed in this hotel again because of its location and its rooms. I wasn't disappointed with how the rooms was presented but some things are missing, like having only a pair of room slippers or maybe requesting an electric adaptor to charge my gadgets which I was able to borrow last year.
Anyway, it could have had a 5 star experience if not for the service flaws. Still recommended but hopefully will have a better courtesy from their staff.

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Hotel Canada Rome
This hotel should be a 4 star
Thanks to the previous reviews we stayed here for a total of 5 nights. We were super impressed. We stayed at 4 star hotels in Italy that weren't comparable. This should really be a four star hotel. The toiletries are to be seen, better than a Westin or W hotel's goodies! Don't let the Best Western name put you off, it's independently owned and operated and nothing like the usual Best Westerns in Canada!
A charming hotel...
Hotel Canada is a charming, lovely hotel. Rooms were spotless. Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Lots of toiletries in bathrooms. The daily breakfast buffet was plentiful, varied, and very good. Rooms were decorated old European style. We really felt like we were in Italy. We were a family of four and the room was quite comfortable size wise. About four blocks from the main bus and train station in Rome. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
We stayed at Hotel Canada because of the reviews on this site, and we were by no means disappointed. Hotel Canada is a very attractive hotel with courteous and helpful staff. Our room was fantastic and the breakfast with eggs, bacon, pastries, and fruit was the best we experienced at any of our hotels in Italy. It's within walking distance (4 or 5 blocks) from the Termini with luggage. If we were planning a return trip to Rome, we'd stay at Hotel Canada.
Previous reviews were spot on
Selected this hotel based on the previous reviews, having trawled thorugh dozens of the other hotels in the area. I was not disappointed, rooms were comfortable and well decorated, staff very friendly and relaxing in the bar was joy (prices 50% less than the local eateries).
Location is good with easy access to the centre, main rail station only 300mts away. Highly recommend this hotel.
Great rooms and service !
This has proven to be one of my favourite hotels worldwide. Initially, I found it when staying at another hotel nearby in which I was very disenchanted! I love the chance to travel to Rome and to stay at the Canada. The staff on reception treat me as if they know me and nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are quiet, spacious and beautifully appointed. A cappucino from room service came with a couple of lovely biscotti. Their breakfast is a good start to the day. Many good trattorias etc nearby; try Leoni d'Abbruzzo in the same street..
Thanks to the other guys reviews. Based on these I booked and thought it was great. Still lots of bathroom pressys. Very convenient and excellent value. We had a lovely room with painting decorating the ceiling. Furniture was complimentary to the room. Only criticism I can think of is the coffee was not brilliant in the morning!!!!
Hotel canada is excellent
we recently stayed at the hotel canada in rome and found it to be fantastic, located within easy walking distance of the termini. the rooms are comfortable and all the staff very helpful. we will stay there again next time we are in rome
Hotel excellent value for money. lovely room, pleasant staff.
Excellent location near to Rome Termini station
I had a five day holiday in Rome and stayed in Hotel Canada in July 2001. It has a great central location being only five minutes walking distance from Rome Termini station - this is on a direct line to the airport, so is very handy. The hotel is excellent, quiet, and staff are very pleasant. I looked out onto a busy street, and had a very nice room. The guy who has written the other review is right about the bathroom goodies! Breakfast is very nice, and you tend to also be in the dining room with Italian business people, as well as other European tourists. You are very close to the Rome metro - a stop is also at Termini, and it will take you all over Rome.
Can't go wrong here
I've stayed at the Hotel Canada twice. The rooms are very nice and well maintained, and some over look a small courtyard in the center. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is very tastey, especially the chocolate croissants.
It is by the train station, but I had no problems even though I was travellng alone.
You get lots of goodies in the bathroom, and frankly this hotel if located in the historical centre of Rome would cost up to twice as much.
