... to Capitolini Hill. It is one of the hills in Rome, seeped in the history of Romulus and Remus. There are some mighty sculptures there and beautiful architecture. It was built after Michelangelo's death but according to his design. We then headed off to the Vatican. St Peters leaves me speechless...simple, clean, elegant structures yet such pure beauty. It is simplistic in its majesty. We had booked into the Necropolis tour, so the ...
... have been preserved. Most were built to commemorate a victory or person. We walked around the area and sat for awhile to enjoy the scenery that is left. After that we made our way back to the area of our hotel. We stopped to grab some dinner and then visited one of our favorite places up the street for crepes and cappuccinos. We are now resting in our hotel room and repacking our bags. Tomorrow we are going to take a ...
... the world to by. (Or more likely watching the con artists go by). The Trevi is not just a fountain... It's a feature!! As brilliant as it is big, we could have sat for hours watching the water thundering down and tourists posing (not us). After some time, we threw in a coin, made a wish and said goodbye to the Trevi fountain before making our way back to the hostel.
An early night for the sick kid... Colosseum tomorrow! ...
Today was our big walking day in Rome. We took the local bus into Rome central with plans to walk and walk and walk (as Adam would say).
We hit all the highlights - and this city has more than it's fair share of highlights! Mostly they don't need commentary - so here's the list
- Mouth of Truth - which is a fun site - you stick your hand in what was old manhole cover and it's meant to bite it ...
... a visit if you ever come to Rome.
I made my way back to my hostel. I went for dinner with the guys from the hostel. I had Suppli' which are like meatballs but they are filled with rice, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. They are then coated with bread crumbs and deep fried. I know not so healthy but I only had one. Then I tried a Polpette Di Malanzana, an eggplant meatball ...

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
i was looking for the the coolest and best and i found itfinally rome has a 5 star hotel with a contemporary framei recommend it to all global nomads
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.
