Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Hotel Rome
What a location! After a tour filled with hotels on the "outskirts" of all the good attractions and cities, it was great to go to a hotel where you could walk to everything and anything. I am a walker, so this was great (more gelato!) If you are not a big walker, the metro is sooo close by and sooo easy to use - very basic. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. I am a single girl who stayed a few extra days at the end of a tour, and I felt totally comfortable walking back alone from Trevi Fountain at 11:00 pm. There is everything close -- restaurants, internet, whatever. The people at the hotel helped with anything I needed. The negatives of this hotel are that the traffic can be loud at night. I had to close my windows b/c of it. Also, I had a very small shower (common in Europe), so if you are a larger person and are worried about this, it may be a problem (or you can request a larger shower?) This hotel was very, very reasonably priced, and I found the best price on venere -- definitely worth it!
Embassy Hotel in Rome two thumbs up
Based on the positive reviews I read about the Embassy hotel, I booked it and would definitely agree this is a very good hotel. It is within walking distance of the termini and major sites. We arrived from the U.S. early (11 am Rome time) and our rooms were ready which was great! The rooms are sparsely decorated but very clean. Typical for Europe. The bathrooms were new and clean. Be aware they are very small. The showers would not accomodate a large person. The young man at the front desk was very helpful and friendly.
The breakfast is on the third floor. Our room was right next to the kitchen and it was very noisey very early in the morning. I would not recommend this room or the 3rd floor for anyone who is sensetive to noise. I would go back to and recommend this hotel. The restaurant across the street was given high ratings in the reviews we read. However, we did not like it. The waiters were rather rude, the service was terrible and the food was average. We never got our bill even after asking for it. Convenient but be careful.
Basic but very convenient
I have just returned from a wonderful holiday to Rome. I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, and was very happy with the location. The room is very basic. Bathrooms were small, and breakfast was just continental. From the hotel you can walk to all the great locations of Rome, or take the Metro. The station is just 5 minutes walk from the Hotel.
Basic hotel, good for low budget travels
Stayed in embassy for 3 nights with my girlfriend. The location of this hotel is good, most of the attractions were within walking distances. The staff were friendly too. Not too bad for an average hotel for the price i paid (120euro/night during jun). Now for the down side, the room was very spacious but quite dusty. The shower room was small and the sliding door for the shower cubicle couldn't shut properly (was repaired the next day after reporting the incident to the management). Would only recomend if you're on a budget trip.
Three thumbs up
We stayed there 4 days. The hotel is located in a nice area, near Termini station, and by Via Vittorio Veneto. 15 minutes pleasant walk to the city centre. The rooms are nice and clean, the price (120 euros per night) below average and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is plain but good. Air conditioning worked well, and a safe is in the room. Check out the restaurant on the other side of the street - da Giovanni - outstanding!
Better than basic
This hotel is in a great location, its five minutes from via veneto, ten minutes walking from termini station and ten minutes walking to spanish steps. the staff are brilliant, friendly and very helpful. Our room was very clean and quite large for a central hotel. Via antonio salandra was quite noisy and we were'nt too keen on the continental breakfast but that is our only moan! There is a great family run restaurant directly opposite. Book direct through the hotel for the cheapest rates, we got a great deal on their website. We wouldn't hestitate to recommend this hotel.
Basic but convenient
My wife and I stayed at the Embassy from May 22 to May 26, 2004, on a daily rate of 135 Euros. The hotel is situated about 10 walking minutes from the main train station and about 20-25 walking minutes from the Spanish Steps and pedestrian zone. It occupies 3 stories of an old appartment building, what at first seems rather unusual. Rooms are rather outdated, in need of some lift-up, but everything was functional: minibar, hair-drier, in-room safe, and air-conditioner (though I guess not every room has air conditioner). Reception is always open, and there is a reasonable restaurant just in front (Da Giovani). Good value for a unpretentious short stay in Rome.

... a picture on wikipedia because the article states that the staircase is generally closed to the public. It was really cool to climb the staircase and enjoy the views. From there, we saw the Vatican from behind the scenes a bit. We could see the Papal tennis court, and the Swiss Guard living area, where they and their families live, complete with green areas, small yards, and playgrounds for the children. The only population growth in the Vatican is due to Swiss Guards ...

Goodbye, land of pizza and pasta, friendliness and history. Goodbye to friends and family and some great memories. We got to the Rome airport with plenty of time to spare.

... The sign said you could drive it in the park or in the city, and after finding places in the park that merged with real traffic I think it's safe to say no, you shouldn't. This thing maxes out at 10 mph with the petal to the floor! Nate was driving it like he stole it and we had a good time going all around the park. There's a zoo in there that I'd like to see but we didn't have time with the golf cart and didn't feel like walking all the way back there. We walked back to the ...
