Travel Blogs from Rome
We reached Milan in the noon. We then took a train from Milan Centrale to Roma Termini and reached in the evening. After checking into the hotel little quickly, we were impatient to get the first taste of history.
We took the map and left immediately to get a glimpse of the majestic Colosseum. We did have our own adventure …
Woke up at 7:30am to get to our 9:07am train. Got to the station, had an orange juice and a chat to people, then boarded our train. Arrived in Rome at around 1pm. Got to the hostel and put our bags away. Then went back into town for a 4pm free walking tour. We began the tour at the Spanish Steps (which are the widest steps in Europe, and connect Piazza Spagna to the church above it. There is one thing in this whole area that ...
... hostel at night. Hence we didn’t really get outside until midday and we went back to the Spanish steps area to a nice restaurant for some lunch. Got some good pasta again. We then walked the area around before heading back to the computer shop where I picked up my laptop, It was working finally! Woo. We had dinner early at a cheap place, it wasn’t much chop thou. Heading back we had some more beers on the terrace, before heading down at about 9 to the ...

When we got to Rome, we quickly went to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and Pantheon. Again, these places were just so fascintating ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
The staff were great and though the room was small, it was manageable for 5 days. We did find difficulty in placing our suitcases. But the room was clean and well maintained. The bath was equipped well and room heating was good too. It will be evident after 3 or 4 days of stay, that breakfast lacks variety, but there is nothing to complain when you have numerous options in Rome.
The hotel is centrally located - National stop - which has a bus stop and metro in a walking distance.
Overall, we were satisfied with our stay in this hotel.

Loved this Hotel
Stayed at the Britannia for 2 nights, and it was wonderful. We had one of the rooms with a terrace, and it was perfect. We were given a very warm welcome upon arrival. The staff spoke English really well, and were most helpful with tours etc. A great breakfast was included in the price. We were sorry we couldn't stay longer!
My family and I, along with our elderly Aunt & Uncle, stayed at this hotel from 21/02/2005 for four nights. The rooms we had were very good and nicely furnished and comfortable and the staff were helpful and pleasant. Every morning there was a good selection of either hot or cold food available for breakfast, which was a welcome start to each day. I feel I must give this hotel an excellent rating not only for the standards they employ but also due to an unexpected situation involving our elderly aunt, who had to be rushed to hospital after being taken suddenly ill. Once the hotel became aware of our Aunt's situation, their assistance was absolutely invaluable. Nothing was too much trouble and my family and I can never thank them enough for making what was an extremely worry time bareable. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough!
Just got back from Rome where I stayed at the Britannia. It was everything I had hoped it would be! Would definately stay there again! The Junior Suite was perfect for the three of us. The bathroom was very spacious. We enjoyed the breakfast which was included in the price of the room. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, assortment of juices, assortment of breakfast rolls, coffee, tea, and different types of fresh meats and cheeses. We did opt for room service since our room had a beautiful terrace. The cost was 2.07 euro per person and was well worth it. We did ask the front desk for recommendations for dinner. They made us reservations two nights at excellent restaurants. We did try the tour company they offer. Green Line Tour. Was not too thrilled with them. Decided to go ourselves and were much happier. Travelled mostly by taxi. Since there were three of us, it seemed the best way to get around. Never spent more than 10 euros to get anywhere. The Britannia is very well situated in the city. Plus it is off a side street, so we never were bothered with the noise from traffic. Would highly recommend!!!!
Stayed five nights in Feb 05. Great location,friendly staff,delicious breakfast -have recommended it to friends.
Just back from a three night stay at the Britannia and found it to be value for money, extremely friendly, clean and close ( within walking distance) to all the tourist attractions in Rome. I would thouroughly reccommend this hotel. We had already booked to stay at the Anglo Americana and after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor cancelled and rebooked at the Brittania - glad we did! Would stay there again!
Enjoy the Britannia
My wife and I spent four nights at the hotel in Nov 04. The night porter was welcoming and most helpful with info covering local restaurants. We were offered a suite, at a supplement, and enjoyed it for a reasonable rate.
Breakfast was first class.
Tours advice relevant
Location very convenient.
No criticism of accomodation.
Have already recommended hotel to friends.
Enjoy your visit....we did.
Above average, except...
We found this to be a very comfortable, clean hotel with super friendly and helpful staff that fulfilled our requirement of being reasonably priced (for Rome) and within easy walking distance of Roma Termini, on a quiet side street off Via Nazionale and close to the Opera. Breakfast was abundant. The bathroom was smallish with a rather narrow tub. Unfortunately, we experienced the water temeperature and pressure problems mentioned by some other reviewers. Thus, an OK rather than an above average rating.
Stayed here at the end of July 2004 for a week. Not having been to Rome before I was apprehensive when you see some of the properties in Italy. From the airport I arrived at the Termini Rail Station, only had a 10 minute walk to the hotel, which is always a bonus after travelling. Nicely decorated hotel, in & out. Very adequate room, fridge, tv,safe,shower,ac, nice bathroom, not a large room but big enough. Excellent buffet breakfast. Being near the station you are near the main bus station, metro, trams, only 20 mins walk to the Roman attractions and with what this city has to offer you are never going to be within 5 minutes reach of everything so well satisfied with the location
I just returned from Rome. One of the nights I stayed at the Hotel Britannia. I don't have any real complaints, other than for the money, you could do a lot better. The best thing I can say is that they had the best breakfast of the four hotels I stayed at in Italy. The service was decent, the room was clean if a little 'tired'. They are very well located, in that most of the major sights are within walking distance.
