Well of course...with all our great packing to do only carry-on, we were denied by Lufthansa. Have to mention...the 1st trip we took together to Central America we checked our bags and never saw them again...that is until we were checking in to go home. Happy to say, we arrived in Rome and so did our bags!
We got to our hotel late …
Yesterday, the Freeman family explored more info about Rome! We explored info including an underground stadium, mouth watering places to eat, and really old structures that were from year one (A.D.) After that tour, we ate at a really awesome restaurant that filled our stomachs! Then for dessert we (Me and Brendan) had some gelato (Italian Ice …
The first 24 hours in Rome was rather painless other than the fact I did not sleep on the plane ride from Boston to Madrid or Madrid to Rome. By the way, the Madrid Airport is lovely! Rome Cab was excellent in picking us up at the airport plus brining us back to the airport to pick up our rental car on Thursday. Our driver was sane and courteous. …
... a main road we had driven through just the day before on a bus. The whole street was shut down and people were roaming in and out of shops walking down the centre of the road and huddling around people playing drums and watching women on a hens party riding segways through the crowds. Our eyes lit up at the sight of the people and the shops. After a couple of stops into Lingerie, Clothes and Accessory shops I managed to purchase a part of my ...
... We visited the Rome train station and its many shopping options. We enjoyed a "pre dessert" of gelato and then had wine and Lasagne (their only menu item) at a local cafe. At that point we were all pretty tired so we went back to the hotel to catch up on our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fortyseven Hotel Rome
I stayed here for 4 nights in September for my first trip to Rome. Having no previous experience of the city I went on what information I could glean from the expedia website (and I have to say, got a great deal, too).
Superb Hotel in a wonderful position. I did lots of research before going to Rome and read that this Hotel was above average - well it certainly was. We stayed for 3 days 2 nights, the staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was a lovely continental breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, cereal and pastries. I chose a suite for our stay which was spacious, clean and with lovely views over the ruins, (my son enjoyed the remote control shutters and other gadgets!). You are only a 5 minute walk from the Rome Forum and Colesseum with all the other attractions within walking distance. I would recommend this Hotel and would definately use it again on my next visit to Rome.
I stayed at the Fortyseven for four nights in december. The inside of the hotel is designed and decorated in a very cool and modern way with lots fine art, clever designs and cool designer furniture. This makes a great contrast to the fact that once you step outside the door you also stepped into ancient Rome. Something you will also get a glimpse of from the delightful, good sized terrace that came with my standard room.
I spent four days at the Fortyseven Hotel in November, having conducted thorough research first. The hotel is new and clean, with modern furnishings. The breakfast is simple but adequate. Our room was very nice, with a beautiful bathroom. However I had two issues with the room. Firstly, our room was next to the noisy lift which kept me awake. Secondly, we were at the rear of the hotel, which was dark and certainly did not have any view, unless you are very interested in office blocks.
Myself and 2 girlfriends were in Rome for 3 nights at the begining of October for some food wine shopping and a bit of culture. We all loved Rome found something amazing around every corner.
We stayed at a new hotel near the colleseum
47 hotel, via petroselli, ------------------, opened in April very contemporary, extremly clean and well cared for, lift to all floors, huge bed, shower could have fitted 10 people in.
Rooms were lovely and big, we had the double deluxe loved the automatic window shutters,breakfasts were on the whole excellent with a good choice of food.
All in all we had a fantastic weekend the hotel was better than we could have possibly hoped for we would all love to return.
Fantastic Hotel with Excellent Service
We have just returned from a four day break at the Forty Seven. I carried out extensive research before choosing the hotel as we were taking our 11 month old son abroad for the first time. We found the location to be excellent and within easy walking distance of the main sites, this is taking into consideration the Italian pavements and a pushchair! Our room overlooked the Temple of Vesta and was large, modern and extremely clean. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpfull. They helped by constantly heating bottles and ensuring our son felt at home. My wife is a Sales Director of a Luxury Hotel chain in the UK and she considers the Forty Seven to be the best hotel we have stayed in abroad. We will definately return.
I'm quite shocked at the other entry for this hotel as I only have excellent things to say. I travel on worldwide business for 10 days per month and have very high expectations after staying in many luxury hotesl. This hotel met and exceeded our expectations. Our room was large, modern, clean, and had all the ammenties expected for a luxury hotel. And, we definitely paid the average low rate (I've heard lots of bad stories about Hotels so would never use them though). The service at reception, breakfast, dinner, etc. was excellent. Examples - when we checked in we were escorted to our room by one of the managers while another person took care of our bags; one evening, the waiter brought us complementary sandwiches for us to sample; when we requested an authentic but not too expensive Italian restaurant, the front desk clerk gave us an excellent recommendation with directions. The hotel's location is perfect. It's within walking distance to the Collesium and many other glorious sites. It's also very safe. For those of you on business, the front desk is excellent at locating a taxi that takes credit card and ensuring you get to your office in the suburbs without any hassles. I conducted extensive research in selecting the right hotel and this one proved to be an excellent choice. will definitely stay here again.
We booked via expedia. Hotel is new and has nice finishes. Our only complaint about our spacious room was the low water pressure in the shower. The staff was very friendly but not very effective. We asked for a restaurant recommendation and were directed to the most mediocre dinner we had in our whole 9 day italian visit. When we asked them to call a cab on our departure by train they called a cab for the airport (easily straightened out though.) When we tried to have laundry done they said leave it in the room for the maids. We bagged it and filled out the slip but it was just pushed into a corner. The next day was Sat and hotel couldn't get it done but the most useful staff help of the visit: a guy told us (somewhat embarassedly) about a local laundromat and they did it no problem and for 1/5th the price!
First, the only reason I'm giving 2 stars, not 1: it IS a new hotel with good decor and nice public spaces, and the breakfast was terrific. The problem was service and failure to get the kind of room we had booked in advance, and it was about the worst reception I've ever encountered. Short(ish) version: We booked a room for 3 on hotels.com, and paid in advance. We also requested a room with a view of the monuments, having picked the hotel for its location. When we arrived after being shown to a rather nice room, we were then moved to a small, dank, dark room overlooking a grafitti-scrawled wall. The manager on duty gave us a series of confusing explanations, which seemed to change by the minute, with the upshot being that he never got our hotels.com reservation, only my 'special' requests made later. First he offered to move us, then he said he couldnt. WHY WOULD THEY BRING US TO A ROOM, THEN SAY IT WASN'T AVAILABLE? I wasn't buying that. It was ridiculous, and no attempts to provide 'customer service' were made. When I got home the executive who I emailed explained (after apologizing) only that while we booked a deluxe room for 3 on hotels.com, the site didn't charge us for one. She said that was their (hotels.com's) mistake. So I'll be emailing them too, if nothing else to alert them that the hotel is putting this on them. Also she said my request for a smoking room was an issue, since the hotel only has one floor with smoking rooms (be warned, it's the 2nd floor...). THERE ARE LOTS OF OTHER CHOICES IN ROME, SO KEEP LOOKING! We were only here one night, but it was the last night of our big trip to Italy, and nearly ruined it.
