... br> Back at the apartment I did some final cleaning and started to pack. I never found a bag to buy so I’m just going to use the worn-out backpack that the travel agency for the tour sent me. Mostly I just need to easily be able to handle everything on my own as I walk to catch the taxi, then into the Termini train station, onto and off the train, and possibly, from the Florence train station to the apartment.
I’m ready for ...
The flight from Bucharest was quick but the change in the air pressure when we landed clogged my ears and it was very unpleasant. The apt. we rented required the balance be paid in cash Euros. At the airport, we exchanged the currency we had collected from all the other countries we've visited for Euros. They would not exchange the Serbian dinar. He said it was too "salty." Not sure if that ...
... the Veggie Leggie burger, and the Barbeque Burger. We ate the nachos and were already stuffed, but then we were ready for the final kicker, the sandwiches.
The burgers came to the table and then we began to chow down. Dilyara started with her French fries and I began to eat my burger. Then, Dilyara took a bite of her burger. She immediately began to make yuk, and coughing sounds and spit out the bite she had just taken. She said it tasted like meat. So I took the patty ...
... a great time! My favorite thing to do was exploring and running around. After all the exploring we got a few postcards and then we went home. We had a great day! ~Ethan
Today was my favorite day--two thumbs up, no competition. Ostia Antica was an awesome end to the day. It was so much fun to peek around the brick and stone doorways and run around, trying ...
... our sunglasses here as this usually makes the sun come out. We walk about 3 miles to the Testaccio neighborhood of Rome. We get slightly off track along the way but are paralleling the mapped route so it doesn't cost us too much. Soon we see the pyramid which is the start of our tour of the day. The pyramid of Gaius Cestius was built in 12BC by a wealthy magistrate who like many of his peers of the day, liked Egyptian architecture. It took almost a year to build ...

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.
