Hey Babs how was the flight to Rome? Having fun?! Mayn im so jealous babs. I can't wait to see you! Ok so I just got home hanging out with J and another DJ, Dominic at the hookah lounge down the street from Tea House. Well I came up with an idea of selling our drinks to the hookah bar with a wholesale price and that …
So today started off at 9am when we got on a bus and headed to the Vatican City to see St. Peter's Basilica. Wow. I don’t even know how to describe the depth and emotion of its beauty. I’ve never been in the presence of something so powerful. It’s flat out incredible. We walked through the bottom of the basilica where the tombs of …
We went to orientation, listened to safety tips, what to expect, what to do, what not to do, where to check out, what's around, etc. and then were fed authentic Italian food. Although scrumptious at the time, it's now 1am and Amanda and i are hungry! We even snuck our Clif & Marathon bars but that didn't satiate our hunger, so we're gonna sleep …
Today we were very eager for breakfast. Amanda and I found very quickly that our dinner full of exquisite tastes simply didn't satisfy our hunger for the rest of the evening. At 1am we were pulling out our Clif bars and Marathon bars as we sat on the bed and excitedly relived our day. So as breakfast came, it was just like dinner the night before, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Della Torre Argentina Rome
The location of this hotel could not be better. Half way between the Colosseum and St Peters. I walked everywhere. A popular bus stop is right in front of the hotel if you don't want to walk.
My family and I have stayed at many hotels in Rome over the last 20 years, and just got back from a week at the hotel della torre argentina. The hotel was great for its location, room (we have the quad suite for 4 at the back of the hotel with a terrace), service and breakfast. The desk staff was helpful but not overly friendly (which was fine). It is on the super busy Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, so it probably is best to ask for a room at the back. We definitely would stay there again!
Great hotel, great city!
My wife and I stayed here recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was spacious and clean, the breakfast was well attended and the location cannot be beat. You are minutes from the Pantheon, Piazza Navonna and Campo Del Fiori.
The patio on top was beautiful for watching the sunset and enjoying a bottle of wine.
Another favorite was visiting the cats in the ruins right next to the hotel, they actually run a shelter there to keep the strays fed and out of the streets.
We will definitely consider staying there again on our next trip back!
Stayed at the Argentina in November 2004 and found it to be a good business style hotel. The location is really excellent -- 5 minute walk from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. Room was nicely decorated and the marble bath was WONDERFUL! Breakfast was nice. There is no concierge, but the front desk staff spoke good English and were helpfulexcept that they did not take telephone messages from our callers. I had not been to Rome in more than 30 years so I am not really up on hotel prices. This hotel was about $200 per night at a special rate arranged for us by another hotel that had cancelled our reservation at the last minute. Normally, the Argentina is quite bit more expensive. It seemed very pricey for being a simple business hotel, but it was very clean, nicely decorated, and very safe. Depending on the price, I'd stay again.
When in Rome
Spacious and tastly furnished rooms, very good breakfast, excellent location on Piazza Argentina archeo-site and within walking distance from Campo de Fiori and major monuments. Excellent stay for business.
What a Wonderful Hotel
I cannot say enough about this hotel. It's quaint and small and the location couldn't be better. You can walk to the Pantheon, the Piazza Navona and the Trevi Fountain, and the Coliseum/Roman Forum are a short taxi ride away.
The best part of this hotel is the 2 rooms on the top floor that have private balconies that overlook the city of Rome. It's the perfect setting for a late night 'wine and cheese' fest.
Breakfast is included and the staff is very helpful.
Looking forward to visiting the Della Torre again in the near future.
