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 …
... head and looked at me as if to say, “Oh no.” He knew what my inquiries meant…GAME ON!! The girl rubbed me the wrong way from the start. Her voice was super annoying and her head started moving all over the place like a bobble head doll when she was trying to get others to buy into what she was saying. She asked what we were doing for the day, and I said we were starting in Vatican City followed by ancient Rome. My gut reaction about ...
... us there. We waited for about 45 mins eventually a young man came and took us found to the apartment. It was at the other end of the street beyond a little square. The lane looked a bit scruffy and when we entered the stairway was grubby and didn't look upto mu h. There is no lift and we are on the 3rd floor so Bhups and the man struggled up the stairs with our cases. The apartment is quite nice inside. There is one room with a kitchen, dining table and chairs and ...
... same hostel! As much as I loved Rome, I was happy to move on and come to Florence. It is a VERY busy city. I am already noticing some differences between Rome and Florence though. I didn't see any gypsies in Rome but in Florence, they are EVERYWHERE. I was eating a cannoli today and one of them came up to me and asked if she could have it. Like I would share an authentic Italian cannoli with anybody.... Not gonna happen. Everything in Rome is so old. ...
... but when you consider that this was 2000 years ago, and on the other side of the planet there were people still living in tribes, it just shows how intelligent these people were (well, they did have a lot of problems and their empire did eventually fall, but it had a good beginning).
We walked around the Coliseum once then made our way to the Vatican. Some of the group didn’t go into the Vatican, Jaimie included, but because I hadn’t seen it I decided to ...

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!
