... River, which is pretty dirty, when I noticed another interesting area. I took a slight detor and found myself in the Jewish quarter which was originally the Jewish ghettos. It is certainly no ghetto now but it still is very Jewish from the restaurants to the artisans and the people. I absolutely loved it and I could happily spend days in this area alone. It is surrounded by trees and was very peaceful even though it backs onto Capital hill ...

I also passed the column of Marcus Aurelius, the same place that they were celebrating Fiaba Day last weekend. This time, Piazza Colonna was all roped off; they weren't letting anyone near the front of the Chamber of Deputies building, which did make it easy to take a good picture of the column! It was right about this time that my knock-off purse strap broke. Bummer—it didn’t even last through Rome. I think I might have ...

The cappuccino at Zero Caffe was heavenly - creamy, fragrantly rich and not too bitter. Why I can't get a cappuccino like this in Boston, I will never know....Must be the Italian cows.

The days entertainment was planned by 'editors' much like directors of a show with different set changes with trees, animals, birds, props and such. The underground area had a floor over the top with sand on it and the animals and sets would be lifted in from different spots for effect and drama with hoists. They even had designated people to walk around and spray perfume to mask the increasing stench of blood ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dei Consoli Rome
Terrific Staff with a location that cannot be beat
My first trip to Italy and thankfully the staff at Hotel Dei Consoli had many wonderful suggestions and scheduled trips to Naples, Pompei and Florence. The rooms are small, but nothing unusual for Europe.
Wow, where to start? My fiance and I ended our 16-day European excursion in Rome and stayed at this hotel. We were greeted by a friendly staff who quickly checked us in and took our bags to our room. Our concierge gave us helpful tips and advice on the area, including wonderful restaurants to visit. Our room was large and plush. The breakfast was nice, with a large assortment of pastries, desserts, as well as eggs, meats and cereals and yogurt. The location is close to the Vatican and St. Peter, but a healthy walk to Spanish Steps, Coliseum etc. So for me, who loves to walk, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The area is nice and safe. I would recommend this hotel, as well as stay here again upon to chance.
Great Location, Lovely Rooms!
We went to Rome for the first part of our honeymoon, and were very pleased with this hotel! The rooms are relatively small, it's true, but they are ellegantly decorated and very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are absolutely lovely as well, which is sometimes hard to find in Rome. It was about a 4 or 5 minute walk to the Vatican and St. Peter's Square, and 5 minutes in the other direction to the metro, which connects you to all major sites. Breakfast in the morning was superb... we looked forward to it every day! The staff was incredible too. And the rooms were soundproof, which was very nice. We would HIGHLY recommend this hotel, and would stay there again, definitely!
Over priced and small rooms
Hotel rooms are stiflingly small and it is massively over priced for what you get. Breakfast was scrambled egg, dry bread rolls, and chopped tomato every morning.
The hotel looks good but it is not value for money, it felt like a rip off.
My husband and I just returned after a two week stay in Rome and Florence. The Hotel Dei Consoli is an excellent hotel. The Vatican is just around the corner, and there's a Mero stop a few blocks away if you don't want to walk everywhere around Rome even though that's possible. The hotel had a great winter rate. We stayed in a standard room with a king size bed. Our room faced the street but the windows were great at soundproofing. I was able to reserve a nonsmoking room which was important to us and hard to do in Italy. The staff is very professional and was very helpful with anything we wanted. We were able to leave luggage at the hotel for a few days while we went to Florence.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Spent 2 nights at the Consoli and picked it mainly because of it's proximity to the Vatican (where I knew I would be spending at least 1 full day). It doesn't disappoint - it's VERY clean and the staff are really friendly and effecient. Stayed in standard room, which had a generous queen sized bed, fully stocked mini-bar and TV - although be advised that only CNN and News 24 are the English channels (but you don't go to Rome to watch TV do you??!).Breakfast is nicely set out and continental, but some may prefer the fully cooked selections that larger hotels provide. Walked to most places - Castel D'Angelo in 5 mins, 20 mins to Spanish steps, Vatican in 5 mins - I've stayed nearer the termini station in the past, and found walking around that area tiring as it's very hilly - this hotel is in a nice flat part of Rome.
Our stay Feb. 6 and 7,2004
Dear Hotel Dei Consoli:Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your hotel on February 6 and 7. It was such a comfort after a very long day and night of travelling from the US to get to your beautiful hotel. It is perfectly located, quiet, clean and lovely. The front desk gentlemen were most professional and helpful. The breakfast was the best we had the entire 10 days we were in Italy, especially the cappuccini!Thank you for all.Sincerely,Julie Lyon & Britton Jewett
Fantastic friendly hotel
Just spent the weekend in Rome and two nights in this charming, friendly hotel. Very conveniently located near to the Vatican. The room was lovely, very nicely decorated and the Jacuzzi bath was just what you needed after walking the streets of Rome. The breakfast selection was really good and again just what you needed before a long day of sight-seeing in this wonderful city. Would definately recommend to anyone to stay at this charming and very friendly hotel.
A great find
The Dei Consoli is in a teriffic location just steps from the Vatican Museums, St. Peter's and Castel Sant'Angelo. I was in a beautiful room -- not the largest, but more than adequate -- impeccably decorated, immaculate and inviting. Easy to get anywhere from here, without being caught in the madness of the much busier area nearer to the Spanish Steps, etc. The lobby consists of only a check-in desk behind which sat the most warm, friendly and knowledgable concierge I've met in a long time. Who needs a lobby with that kind of service!
Dei Consoli is a great 4 star hotel
This is a first rate hotel, with an extremely comfortable room and marbled bath with jacuzzi. It is a great choice if you plan to be spending alot of time at the Vatican . The staff is very helpful , though it is probably a better choice for couples than families as our room, while elegant and comfortable, was a bit too small for three people.
