Rome - amazing! Colosseum - awesome.
We had a great 3 days in Rome including some nice dinners in the popular "squares". Two days of just walking and stumbling across one ruin after another and all just part of the city landscape. New building on one corner, 1900 year old ruin around the bend. Incredible. We wanted to spend more time here …
... a different road back, one that runs below the main road beside the river. It turned out to be that same road that I was walking on when I tripped and fell on my first full day in Trastevere. I can tell you, it was such a relief to be past that point and finally back to the apartment. I was so tired and sore. Later I routed it and I had walked just over 10 miles—the longest I had walked in years (and years and years). And I still have an unused bus ...
... the whole thing when we tried one more time to locate it and there it was round the corner from St. Peter's down a narrow st. Bloody map was wrong but we made it. With a commentary through head phones we were all blown away at how many old and truely incredible buildings there are in Rome. Absolutely loved it. Had dinner in cute wee restaurant and got serenaded by old sax player. Taxied home and 4 very weary travellers went straight to ...
The tour of the Scavi that my mom and I took was very interesting. It was completely underneath St Peter's Basilica, which was very fun. We got to see mausoleums (tombs for families) and coffins, with the corpses inside them having been removed a long time ago, of course. We saw ...
... saw Michelangelo's "Christ Carrying The Cross." As if that was not enough to experience in one evening, we walked along a narrow street before I realized that around the corner was the portico of The Pantheon. This, we saw, and photographed, from every angle. Abigail then led us onto the glorious Piazza Navona, filled with the works of Bernini, especially his grand "Four Rivers" fountain. Talk about sensory ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Doria Rome
I choose this hotel from recommendations on this web site. All reviews are accurate. Hotel very clean. Room was a fair size, tastefully decorated with air con, safe, mini bar and comfortable bed. Our room was at the back of the hotel, overlooking a courtyard therefore it was lovely and quiet at night. The bathroom, as previously reviewed, was small, particularly the shower. We are average size people and found it a squeeze! The concierge were knowledgable, polite and helpful. Breakfast was basic, although adequate and fresh. We enjoyed the roof terrace in the morning. The location of this hotel allows you to walk to all the main tourist attractions, apart from the Vatican. However we were aware that the adjacent neighbourhood could be dodgey and therefore we used cabs in the evening into the centre (5-7 euros). Aviod any parks close by as the one we walked through was full of homeless and drug abusers.
A great hotel nearby Terministation (5 minute walk). Also a great location. Wearing your walking shoes you can do everything by foot from the hotel ( except for the Vaticaan). Our room was very nice and clean, we had no problem with the shower by the way. The electronic save in the room was very handy and the minibar was very welcom at the end of a very hot day (so was the airco) :-) The staff was friendly and helpfull. And having breakfast on the roof of the hotel, looking out over Rome, what more can you ask for!
(if you are not used to traffic noise, perhaps you can bring earplugs, but the noise didnt realy bother us and we had a room on the first floor at the front..)
We can recommend this hotel en we would love to go back again!
We loved the Doria Hotel
Both me and my husband found the staff friendly and very helpful. Our room was comfortable and very clean - what more could anyone ask for. We found it easy to get about as the hotel was within walking distance of remarkable and wonderful sights - transport to all other sights were close at hand. The Metro is a very good way of visiting Rome, I do suggest you avoid the busy times (8.30am & 5pm) very busy, you feel like you are cattle being taken to market. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and always available. I could not find any fault in this hotel - small, friendly, clean and plenty of good restaurants nearby to enjoy your evening meal. I would difinitely return.
Iloved Hotel Doria
I stayed at Hotel Doria on my recent visit to Rome. I was pleasantly surprized to find the hotel to be very,very clean, centrally located, within walking distance to major attractions and very easy to find. I would highly recomend staying at this hotel.
We stayed at Doria in March, 2005 and we found the place lovely. The location is perfect and we could even see a part of Santa Maria Maggiore from our window. Right in front of the hotel, there's a bus stop you can use to get to the main bus station, Termini, which is 3 minutes walking distance, anyway. We couldn't find the location more convenient as we could easily travel everywhere by foot, bus or subway. (We got to the Colosseum by foot in like 5-10 minutes).The staff was very nice and ready to help us with any information we needed.
We stayed at the Doria in August 2004. The Hotel is in a nice part of Rome. You are on a busy street so having your windows open would be noisy. We cant say anything negative about the hotel, apart from the shower is a little small, but thats only a minor detail. The staff were pleasant, breakfast was nice. And we had air conditioning, which is a must! We would definatley go back to this hotel.
We were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival at the Doria. The hotel is exceptionally clean, comfortable and in a fabulous location near the Santa Maria. The owner is part of the staff and has a great interest in the success of his hotel.
The rooms were beautifully decorated. The windows had two sets of shutters and also curtains. We didn't hear any outside noise and slept well.
If there was anything we'd recommend needed improvement, it was the seating in the breakfast room. The breakfast room is on the 6th floor and it overlooks Rome (great view). However, the inside seating is a little cramped at times.
Overall, I'd recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a great price and exceptional quality!
