... our first maître d'hôtel, a well-dressed, personable fellow who seated us under the awning of the outside terrace. The meals were excellent, with Dee ordering grilled chicken that was cooked to perfection, while Lucy and I each had a simple plate of spaghetti cooked in olive oil, lemon juice, cheese, and served with coarse-grained pepper sprinkled on top.
Our tanks topped-off, we walked to the eastern side of the piazza, where a ...

By then the sun had set and the little streets of Trastevere were bathed in the warm orange glow of her street lamps. Mario had suggested a trattorias nearby called Augusto's and it was here that we decided to dine for the night. Augusto's is a small family owned establishment. It is cozy and well known for her affordable and very tasty food. By the time it got to 8pm (her opening time for the evening service), there was a queue outside her ...

As I had a big lunch, dinner tonight shall be my favorite: wine, cheese, crackers, apples and grapes while I finish up packing. Tomorrow morning at 8 my car service will be picking me up for the trip to the airport and back to those whom I hope have been missing me. I did stop at Trevi, coins over the shoulder; I shall return.

Other stops included a trip into the Coliseum, the famed Piazza Navona, we had a stroll up the Spanish Steps, and I got to throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain (this also upset Joe as he likes to remind me a Euro coin is actually worth about $1.30 usd, so this was quite a "high priced" activity... his heart rate should return to normal with a day or two ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Concordia Rome
It's a lovely hotel in the heart of Rome, small but very clean and cosy.
I spent a romantic wedding anniversary with my husband and found the hotel to be a perfect stay for my type recurrence.
I reccomend the hotel Concordia to any couple for a romantic stay in Rome.
My wife and I totally enjoyed the 5 day stay at this family-run,gem of a hotel.I have since,read all the reviews,and fully agree. with the comments.This place is clean,welcoming and fantastically located.The rooms are brightly decorated and contain all that is needed for a comfortable stay in a bustling and noisy city,which is Rome.We found the staff to be always at hand for assistance and good advise.We got to know other clients staying at the hotel.They were full of praise for their stay at the Concordia.I got the impression as though a big emphasis is put on the client,as one would do to someone visiting ones home.This is thanks to the style and grace with which its owner,Mr Roberto,treats his guests,and expects his staff to do likewise.The Hotel Concordia is a small gem in the heart of Rome !!!
We toured Italy in mid-October for three weeks and stayed at the Concordia for 5 days. It proved to be the best deal amongst the 5 hotels we stayed at. The rooms are simple, pretty and extremely clean. The staff is wonderful and takes an almost personal interest in making sure your stay in Rome goes well. The service is exeptional. The owner, Mr Roberto, runs the show with charisma and entertaining conversation. He is full of good knowledge and tips for his guests. They gave us a safe in the room at no extra charge. I must thank Mr Roberto for his hospitality and hope to return there soon.
I have recently returned from a one week stay in Rome. It was my first time to the Eternal City. Thanks to this hotel, amongst other things, my vacation proved to be one to remember. The hotel was a perfect base for sightseeing, shopping, eating out and getting a feel of this unique city. We were made to feel at home by the concierge and the staff. They provided us with information on places to visit during our stay and tips on restaurants. The hotel itself is extremely clean and the rooms proved to be very restful and relaxing after a day of hard walking. On the front desk the guys are good humoured and always helpful. The breakfast proved to be of a good standard. After throwing my coin in the Trevi Fountain I hope to return to this wonderful city and I won t be worried about having to find a hotel to stay at. The Hotel Concordia is high on my list!
Great hotel in a great location
My wife and I have just come back from a 6 day trip to Rome and were delighted to have stayed at the Hotel Concordia.This place really is good.We paid 150 euro a night for a pretty room,extremely clean and nicely furbished.The great thing is that the rooms are relatively quiet considering its very centrally located.The breakfast offered a good choice, in clean and cheerful surroundings.The staff is english speaking and always willing to recommend a restaurant, where you won t get ripped off.I got to know the owner Mr Roberto,who has been in the trade for 40 years.He treats his guests with warmth and old style hospitality.He speaks English and German fluently.This is a great hotel, in a great location.in a great city.When I return to Rome the Concordia is the place for me!
The Hotel Concordia is a great place.Its the second time I ve been and I can t praise this place enough.The staff is very attentive and very friendly.The hotel is very clean well organised and its rooftop terrace is awesome, with a view of St Peters.The rooms are comfortable brightly decorated and clean with parquet.Its owner Mr Roberto is very talkative and goes out of his way to make his guests feel at home.This place is great.
I recently returned from a 4 day, 3 night stay (Oct 15-18, 2004) at Hotel Concordia which I found by consulting TripAdvisor. Although at the time, there was only one review posted, it was a very positive review; I got very short notice about a business trip in the area (2 weeks in advance) and my personal side trip to Rome was one that I had to put together quickly. Although this hotel is not listed in any of the major guide books, I believe that through word of mouth, it will be constantly sold out in the future, so book it now!
I am a Roman living in New York for work reasons,I spent one week at the Hotel Concordia after leaving a bed and breakfast advised by my american collegue and discovered this wonderful hotel in the heart of Rome.It is very clean very friendly and hospitable.The rooms are quiet and have satellite tv and have parquet.The staff are very informative.I recommend this little jewel in the heart of Rome
After staying at the (awful) Palio Bianco, we switched to the Concordia, in the same convenient neighborhood near the Spanish Steps. What a relief! The rooms were simple, but clean, quiet, and had satellite TV. The bathroom actually had shower doors, so the floors weren't soaking wet after a shower. It was a very comfortable place to crash after walking the city.
This hotel is great. The location is near the spanish steps and is walking distance to everything. More importantly, it is resonably priced and very clean. The rooms are cute, well decorated, and have a new and clean feel. The staff was very nice and helpful. They let us store luggage there and had it in the room when we returned. They also set up a taxi for us to the airport at 3am. I would highly recommend this place to anybody.
