          Would never stay here again.


          There are three positive things about this place, which stop me from giving it a rating of terrible.

          First, it has a good location. Second, it has better than average breakfast (for Italy) and third, it has a lovely and friendly staff. The hotel itself is greatly lacking. The worse problem is the noise. The rooms must have walls and ceilings of paper. You hear every walk, every word, every creak, all the time. Its incredibly hard to get any rest.

          The second problem is that it is not very clean. The carpets are old, worn and dirty, the bed comforter left much to be desired. The shower stall drain was plugged. I do not recommend this hotel. Go down the street on block and pay LESS to stay at the wonderful LIRICO

          Convenient And Surprising


          If you are looking for a quiet place to stay near the train station, give this place a try. We stayed at the hotel on May 28 and 29. The rooms are small and a bit austere but the showers are great and the air conditioning is excellent! The staff is multi-lingual and very helpful. When Katrina (I hope I've got your name right) found out that we were leaving at 5:30 AM, she packed a take away breakfast for us the night before - a very nice and unexpected gesture.

          The hotel is very convenient for touring the Colosseum and the Forum. The hotel also has a nice roof top garden area where you can have a drink and some snacks. We had a very nice late night bottle of wine there and enjoyed the early summer evening weather.

          The hotel is about 3 blocks from the train station and, at 150 euros per night, a good value in central Rome. Not a lot of "old world charm" in the building but a great staff and a pleasant and quiet place to sleep.

          Woke up to overcast and rain but Larry says the sun is shining in Rome. We might have walked to the train but not in the rain. Taxi took 10 E for a short distance and the train to Rome took 10 E for 2 hour trip. Trains seem cheap here.
          We arrived once again at Termini train station and walked about a mile to exit to mass confusion. Traffic and …

          Greetings from our last day in Rome!

          So we've done the Vatican, the Colosseum and the Forum now it was time to see the heart of Rome. When you look at the map everything looks spread out and far away but in reality nothing is really that far apart. It's just all curvy and busy so it feels farther apart. Yesterday Emery talked about us …

          Hi everyone!

          We arrived in Rome last night after another very warm train ride from Assisi. At this point in the trip we were all feeling hot and tired and had planned that we would grab something for dinner in Assisi before boarding the train. That way we wouldn't have to eat when we got to Rome, just shower and bed. Well.......we did do …

          ... No. 1 slow boat down the Grand Canal. The trip took about 40 minutes and, exactly on schedule, we arrived at the train station. Our timing was just right for a quick gelato and some nice time in the sun before taking our high-speed train to Rome.

          Four hours later, after a smooth ride chatting with Swedish, Australian, and American tourists, we took a quick taxi ride to our hotel. La Piccola Maison, almost ...
