... the easiest place to navigate through a crowd. I kept getting stuck in the middle of group tours. Got to smell a lot of people.
Anyway the museum is beautiful and a must see. I elbowed my way (not really) over to the Sistine Chapel. No photos allowed sorry! It's actually really dark in there too. Kinda hard to appreciate all the details and ...
... This fountain was built in 1762 to take full advantage of the abundance of water brought into the city by its aqueducts. We never bought water in Rome. We filled our water bottles from these same fountains that is fed by these aqueducts. We make our way to the Forum and Palentine Hill when we realize we have lost the ticket to get in. Probably fell out when pulling out the map.....oh well, "no problem"! It has been a wonderful day in the neighborhood of ...
Rome has been our best stop so far- what an absolutely beautiful city the Romans built. Our hotel was right by the train and bus terminal so finding our way around actually ended up being pretty simple. Of course the moment we got in I grabbed some pizza from a street vendor and walked around the city to get adjusted. After being in Greece, directions in Italy really were a breeze. On the first full day in Rome we made our way to ...
... find one (after not seeing a supermarket ALL day!). My fiance thought this was really amusing, but I didn't as my toes on my right foot and my right leg were really hurting, alongside my chesty cough I didn't feel too good!
We headed back to the hostel, rested for a while before heading back out to the restaurant we ate at last night. We had the lovely wine again, accompanied by prawn and mushroom spaghetti for me and veal for my fiance. ...
... of course. Had to keep it Italian, though I didn’t really rate Italian food in Rome, its better back here in NZ.
Surprisingly, at the end of Rome mum was ready to escape. She by then understood and agreed with my hate of Rome, but as I said you have to go there once in your life, maybe not peak season. The millions of people and the heat are definitely a deterring factor for me, especially if I ever ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caprice Rome
An good little Hotel with nice helpful staaff. Once you get pass the Cicacica Boom Club (which we never noticed) the location was excellent - we were within walking distance to everything we whated to see - The spanish steps - Roman Forum - Colssium - Circus Maxium - De Triva - Excellent restaurants - close to the subway. We would definitly return.
ONLY PROBLEM - EVERYONE IN ROME SMOKES -AND MAKES BREATHING AND LIFE MISERABLE FOR THOSE OF US WHO WISH TO ENJOY LIFE.
My husband and I recently stayed at the Caprice (22/23 December 2003).
We considered we got what we paid for. It was reasonably central and we found a couple of local pizzerias which were very good to eat at.
Reception staff not particularly helpful, but then we have no Italian speaking abilities other than gracia and ciao! Our room was adequate, clean, but very small bathroom. Bonus of a free breakfast was unexpected. Loved Rome, would probably stay at Caprice again because of its location.
Because we stayed at the Caprice for 11 nights and asked to see some available rooms on check-in, we were given a room with a balcony and a good-sized bath. The balcony, however, housed the air-conditioning unit for the floor, and make a horrendous noise when it rained. Breakfasts are great -- HOWEVER ... one morning someone came up to us in the breakfast room and asked us if she could buy a cup of coffee or if it was only for guests. While we were trying to be helpful to her, her accomplice was stealing my shoulderbag -- from the breakfast room! We thought the hotel staff could have been more helpful/sympathetic/apologetic, and when we asked if they were going to change the lock to the room (the key was in my bag), they simply shrugged their shoulders, and said the thieves would never get beyond the front desk. It was a painful and costly lesson; we still love Rome, can hardly wait to go back, but not to the Caprice.
Service-wise, the front desk person was very helpful in phoning one of the museum to change our reservation, without him, we would have miss it. They were friendly overall. But the hotel itself is old, the rooms are not consistently good. Our rooms look like old dormitory-style accomodation, the drawers, closets look so old, I was afraid to put things in there. Likewise, bathroom needs some work too (not getting my money's worth of $120/night). However, we saw housekeeper cleaning the room next to ours, that room look much nicer. A note of caution, the hotel is next to a topless club. But it was relatively safe to get back to hotel after mid-night, my friends & I went back in early AM a few nights after day trip to nearby cities. If this hotel commits to renovations, I would recommend this place.
A wonderful stay and comfortable surroundings
we stayed at the caprice near the spanish steps the hotel was lovely ans max was a wonderful receptionist very helpfull
I stayed there a couple of years back and the elevator can only acommodate 2 people at a time (?) and was broken a lot (luckily we were only 2 flights up). The 1st room we got was (literally) 7x10 feet with TWO twin beds & an armoire. I made a stink about it and they gave us a MUCH bigger room on the same floor. With the exception of Bruno (who was just a beautiful human being), everyone else on the desk staff was horrible. My friend and I were expecting the hotel to be near the Spanish Steps, but the hill it's on is treacherous. If you're thinking of bringing your family, forget it. The Caprice is RIGHT NEXT to a strip joint. You're better off staying at La Docle Vita B&B (that's where I stayed the last timne I went). It costs less and is 1/2 a block from the train, about 1-1/2 blocks from Trevi fountain and about 3-4 blocks from the Spanish Steps.
Small rooms and smelly elevator
This old hotel needs to be avoided at all cost. It is located near Via Venetto which is long over its glory days of the 60s. It will take you an hour to get to the main sites in Rome. The hotel staff has very little information to share with the guests and generally unfriendly. The elevator has a terrible odor. We had to hold our noses each time we got into the elevator!!!! The rooms are small and the carpets dirty. Someos the plaster work on the walls are falling off. The bathrooms are fairly new but very small. A standing room shower with a sink is all you are going to get. No place but the ground to put your personal stuff.
