... br> David and Kath straight to the bar despite Leeds Bradford airport having a major revamp and trying to get them lost, but they found the bar and the now regular double vodka's appearing !
Well we are now sitting on the plane and "Houston we have a problem !!!"
Apparently we have a fuel mismatch on the paperwork our fuel per the gauge does not match the paperwork !!! Well let's see what happens - is this another Nice experience as per last year !
... paintings around. It wasn't even the only painting on the ceiling either, but one of a couple of dozen. All criticism aside, this room was still pretty spectacular, and if the rest of the museum wasn't as it is, it would have left more of an impact. It was just another room covered in paintings. It was from here, passing through another large gift shop that we found the cafeteria and sat down to eat lunch. Lunch was supplied by the market we had been to before coming to the ...
... arrives. It takes us to the road that runs along near the Piazza Navona where we hop off. It is only a short walk to the Piazza Navona where there are many people strolling around. This piazza is huge and shaped much like you would expect a track for racing chariots to be shaped. We walk among the crowds and check out the artists and performers. We also take some time to appreciate the fountains in the piazza and the beautiful buildings surrounding ...
... liked the walls showing scenes in Christ's life and the Last Judgement wall better. Everyone in the Last Judgement was incredibly buff, I must say.
After the museums (and going through the post office again on our way out) we went down to the piazza in front of St Peter's Basilica. There was a huge line to get in but it moved quite fast since it was just for security, so we are glad we did it. There was a picture of St Mary McKillop hanging outside, since her ...
Our first full day in Rome.....
We had our plan, ancient Rome today, Vatican tomorrow. Finish up any sites we miss on Tuesday prior to leaving for Florence that afternoon. Plans, plans, as always are subject to change. The first stop was the Tourist Info kiosk in the train station, two blocks from the room. Roma Passes, good for some free and discounted entries for sites (not Vatican) and all public transportation were twenty ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Gabriella Rome
Fantastic hotel for Rome on a budget !
For Rome on a budget you couldn't find a nicer hotel.
Just 5 mins walk from Termini (the main train station and metro station). And absolute maximum of 20/30 minute walk to the main attractions such as Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.
The room was clean, v.good air con (important in 30 degree heat) and serviced daily, the staff were very helpful and polite, all speaking english which is a fantastic bonus.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone, don't be put off by it being 2 stars, its much nicer than what I would expect a 2 star hotel to be.
Good thing in a small package
All the reviews I read before the trip were accurate. Hotel Gabriella was a nice base for our first night in Rome. The staff were friendly, and we were surprised by the quality of the room. Our room was quite small, but everything we wanted was packed inside. This was probably the only drawback.
Overall, it was an enjoyable night in a relatively quiet area, and I would recommend the hotel.
Nice place to stay
Hotel Gabriella was a nice place to stay. My husband and I unfortunately chose to go to Rome Good Friday to Easter Sunday, so everything was booked solid and way overpriced. We decided to stay at Hotel Gabriella due to the decent price. The room was very clean, but it was not excellent. But of course, this isn't rated as a four star hotel either. The staff was very friendly, especially the younger woman and gentleman who were working the front desk. They gave us great tips on places to eat and how to get around the city. The hotel is located a couple blocks from teh train station, which is convenient. My husband and I gave ourselves a good walk and decided to opt out on purchasing a subway ticket the first day. We were able to walk to the colosseum with a pretty good hike from the hotel. We also walked to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and all the other touristy spots all in the same day. The walk back to the hotel was a good hike, but definitely doable. Overall, our stay was very nice and I would recommend this place if you're needing a cheaper place to stay.
A Great little family run hotel!
Hotel Gabriella is nice little family run hotel in the hotel section near the train station, just a couple minute walk for the trains. With all the things you need close by, like restaurants, internet cafes, laundry mats, etc... The down side is this hotel is on a corner of a very busy street. The entrance isn't...so no worries about getting run over. But more the constant noise. Rome is getting more and more a 24hr city with cars, scooters, buses going at all hours of the day. If you stay here, at the very least get a room on the quieter side. It is a 30 min walk to the city center or the Spanish Steps. Never tried using the buses, well, never tied squeezing into those leaning tightly packed buses. So money was spent on Taxi cabs...which aren't bad. The most expensive one was 15 euros to the Vatican...and you can pack a few people into those cabs. And the shared cabs are even cheaper. Good luck on a cab when it rains! Also I stayed at another hotel on the same street on another trip and almost got robbed in the middle of the night a few years back. Those shutters are there for a reason. Room wise, they are clean. Ours did not have carpets...which was nice in one way...the place was really clean...but then you had to step on a cold floor...oh well...I can deal with it. For a two star we got a Bathtub!!!! Wow. Looking at the map...I guess the rooms alternate between showers and baths. Another thing I noticed....there is not much difference between two and four stars in Italy. The only distinguishing difference is when it was built or last remodeled. The size of the rooms don't very much...the only difference I can tell is the extra services that you'll never really use. I have stayed at dozens of hotels in Italy over the years. The entire hotel is clean and nice...which is surprising because the street, building, and stairwell to the 1st floor is not. The two daughters are wonderful, very friendly and helpful (and pretty too). The father takes pride in his place, and the one morning when our hot water heater broke (which really sucked!!!) they had a professional plumber there working on it within minutes!!! If you just need a basic place to stay...this place is great. If you must have something nice, there are better hotels in nicer sections of town...like the Anglo-American toward the Spanish steps or the ones on Palatine hill. But honestly I don't know why you need to spend more...save it for the operas and shops!!!
Do not stay at the Gabriella!!!!
Do not stay at the Hotel Gabriella. It is not located in a good part of Rome. The hotel gabriella is in like an apartment building with 3 other hotels located in the same building and you have to go upstairs to get to the hotel gabriella. Our room was small and was too pink. WE HAD A GREAT VIEW OUT THE WINDOW OF OUR ROOM, AN ALLEYWAY WITH A DUMPSTER THAT WAS FILLED WITH SMELLY TRASH!!!!WHAT A HOTEL!!!!!SPEND MORE MONEY AND STAY ELSEWHERE!!!!!
We booked a reservation at this hotel but when we arrived we were hustled quickly to another hotel, which turned out to be a DUMP! We missed our tour that night and Expedia won't do a DAMM THING! Sorry you don't get my vote.
