... you enter it's a different story! The detail, the carvings, the inlaid wood, the frescoes, and the gold! It's incredible. And this was just a neighborhood church. As we were going in the Vatican tour later in the day we had to have a "garden variety" Italian church to compare St Peter's Basilica to. After departing our neighborhood church we set out to walk to San Pietro in Vincoli church - another recommendation to visit because of the sculpture inside of Michelangelo's Moses. We ...
... de Trevi and followed a tradition by tossing a coin over our shoulder into the fountain. We saw the Basilica of St. John, the oldest church in Rome, inaugurated in 318 AD. We saw a 3500 year old Egyptian obelisk, brought to Rome (one of 13 they brought to Rome from Egypt), then they added a cross to the top of each of them.
"Thank you very much" in Italian - Molte grazie
... it was really amazing to see. There was this man saying shush every few seconds but it is pretty hard to keep that many people in one room quiet. A bit like school really. We stayed there looking at the paintings for about half an hour before heading into St Peters Basilica.
The detail and the sculptures in the Basilica were amazing and we even saw some God rays of light in some of the windows and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Rome
For some time i've been watching the building and development of the Es Hotel. I can remember saying to myself that when it's all completed I would like to take my family and stay there. So when I got the opportunity this summer to mix a little business and pleasure I had no hesitation in booking my family and myself into The Es Hotel. My wife's only concern was that she is unable to speak any Italian, but I told her this wouldn't be a problem. Upon our arrival the first thing that hits you is the stunning reception area. They were having a bit of trouble with the computers, but this elegant lady came across and gave the young man a hand. To the surprise of my wife, Sara she spoke excellent English. (We later learned that her name was Teresa) and she quickly got us booked into our room. The following day I had several meeting to attend and was a little apprehensive about leaving Sara and the children alone all day, especially because I left her to deal with a slight problem with the room. My meetings ran for longer than expected and when I finally arrived back at the hotel I was expecting a frosty reception from my wife, but to my delight she was very pleased to see me and excited to tell me about her day. First she went down to reception to sort out the problem with the room. The girl on reception, Teresa recognised her from the day before and came across to see what see could do. When Sara explained the problem, Teresa was very professional and delt with the problem without any fuss. She then recommended places of interest and things for Sara and our children to do. (They had a great day) We are both very grateful to Teresa and the rest of the staff for making our trip so enjoyable. I found it disappointing to read some of the other reviews, we had no problems with any saff what so ever, they were all very nice and pleasent. We will certainly be returning we want to check out some more of the excellent restaurants recommended by Teresa.
If you're planning a trip to Rome and want to stay somewhere a little different, this is the place for you. Conveniently located close to the main railway station (don't worry, it's not noisy), the ES Hotel is Italian Chic at its best.
Windows over Rome
Finally, Rome is daring something different. i was there over easter and i was highly impressed. it offers what it promises - itīs cool, itīs different, itīs daring and itīs beautiful. have recommended it to a few friends, who have been and who have indulged and loved it. try it, itīs worth it.
Fantastic service and surprising

Es Hotel in Rome bad experience
My comment is consistent with what I have read i.e. it is just 5 star hotel meeting the criteria of rating in term of facility and nothing more!The reception service is appalling, especially the tan lady with the long curly hairs. On the first day, the hotel aircondition was out of order and nobody mentioned anything. Upon checking out, same issue on mini-bar where we were charged for drinks that we have not taken.A request at concierge for airline arrangement reply was "sorry - we don't have the number of the airline!". The chamber maid even opened our bedroom twice despite having a "do not disturb" sign on the door when we were in the room. May be good to put your expectation at 3 stars rating to avoid any disappointment. Then again, why bother to pay 5 star price?!
I have to agree with the reports about staff attitude at this hotel. Many (but not all ) of the reception staff were rude and sullen - i don't think they know the meaning of service with a smile!They managed to loose our key twice and totally ignored us plenty of times, prefering to answer the phone than deal with guests waiting! One receptionist told a bell boy to find a DVD for us because she was too tired and couldn't be bothered (my boyfriend speaks Italian) Having said that, our room was very nice - we were impressed with the remote control blind and the deep bath! The pool is the major benefit of this hotel and the roof top bar sells fab cocktails and sandwiches!
To start with, this hotel does look fab - take pics, your friends and family will be very impressed. If it is rated as a 5 star hotel for Style, then that would be accurate. In terms of International 5 * Service standards though, do not be fooled. It can be good, but very patchy. Read the reviews previous to this and read about the dark, curly haired female receptionist. I had two encounters with her - her contempt for the questions I asked and her general attitude were breathtakingly bad.
Together with my wife and mother i recently took a trip to Rome,
Great modern hotel along the lines of Ian Schrager's Phillipe Starck designed hotels. The rooms tend to be small and box-like and the rooms across the courtyard stare straight in, but these are preferable to the rooms facing the train lines which can be noisy. There is a great pool on the roof... a must in summer in Rome. Despite thedesigner hotel, the service is appalling. It took about an hour to get as drink during lunch at the poolside restaurant, not to mention the very slow kitchen.
