Olala, Italia !

... It was great and we all loved it. Especially the kids who quickly hang out with all the other youth and had some great nights. So far these were the most worrying moments of our world trip. Our 13 year old daughter party-ing with Italian Boys :->.

Where we were staying is not quiet the Amalfi Coast so we did a day trip there. It has a beautiful coastline with lots of little villages. Since 1974 no one has been allowed to build anything new and that way it has preserved ...

... mushroom meal, but was not sure how the ham and peas made their way in my plate? I found a supermarket nearby and when I mean this place is a tourist trap and you constantly need to be on your guard, the cashier there tried to give me back 12 cents change instead of 12 euros and then put a closed sign and tried to run for his “break”. No matter the situation, when I get angry, Italian is the first language that comes out of my mouth. It happens ...

... d been traveling for almost 24 hours and I could barely keep my eyes open. I can never sleep sitting up on a plane but I actually did during the last flight from Copenhagen to Rome! This also turned out to be in economy, even though Cheapoair.com (ha!) listed it as Business class as well. But it was a short flight (just over 2 hours) and since I slept, it wasn’t bad. I managed at the Rome airport to walk all the way from the ...

With all the complaining I did about the tiny xroom..... We finally had good AC.... Breakfast at the hotel (kinda gross) and took a cab to the Trevi Fountain took a few pictures, threw coins in the fountain for luck and headed on for the Heart of Rome Walk stopping at Santa Maria a very ornate church....past the Italian Parliament Building and a detour for what Rick Steve's says is the best gelato in Rome, Giolitti's it was ...

Rome 2 - Walk through the city

A travel blog entry by jdp643

Today I walked most of the city. I left from my hostel near the train station and walked to Plaza Barberini, up Vittorio Veneto past five star hotels and glass enclosed restaurants, to Piazza della Trinita dei Monti. In the Piaza there were mostly caricature artists, each one having at least one drawing of Brad Pitt on display.

From here I walked up the hill to Villa Borghese, a very large park in central Rome with sweeping views of the city from its western ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caprice Rome

    Great Location

    from

    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.

    Comfortable Stay

    from

    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.

    We should have known ...

    from

    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.

    Old hotel, next to topless club

    from

    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.

    Wonderful stay

    we stayed at the caprice near the spanish steps the hotel was lovely ans max was a wonderful receptionist very helpfull

    I Agree - Avoid!

    from

    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

    from

    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.
