      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' 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 the Anglo-American toward the Spanish steps or the ones on Palatine hill. But honestly I don't know why you need to spend 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.

      ... that we meet later, or (c) there was a cheap bit of real estate next door to the original embassy?

      Well, we know that repair work is needed from time to time, but Fontana di Trevi was a mess.... scaffolding everywhere..... we thought about throwing a few coins in, but thought it most likely that the burly construction workers would likely throw them back at us! Undeterred, we stumbled across a fairly run down looking building (Di Ignazio di Loyola) and ...

      ... and he just down played it – said a few were fed to the lions… How Rome likes to forget its history which is not so glamorous. It started raining during the tour which put a bit of a dampener on things (get it).. Never mind, it was still an enjoyable day. We caught the subway home. The Rome metro is something else. We let the first 4 trains go. We weren’t game to get on because they are literally packed in like sardines in a ...

      Ciao Tutti!

      Final review is over and I am officially a 5th year architecture student! Since I shared my final drawing project, I figured I would keep up the trend and just show a little bit of my final studio project. La Casa delle Acque (the house of the waters) was programmed as a museum to highlight the various functions of water in Rome.

      For anyone that is curious, over the course of a semester ...

      ... B.C. (whoa!) but has gone through many different renovations, the most recent in 1870. Just in 2006 it started to be the place for couples to attach love padlocks (I saw this in Paris also and in Verona at Gulietta’s balcony, couples write their names on the lock and then toss the key in the river). I read online that in 2012 the locks were removed by the authorities because they were afraid the bridge would collapse from their weight—ha! Today ...

      ... that there used to be a statue of Nero as high as the colosseum!!! That was unbelievable!!!! He had some sort of ego that Nero dude. More heat more crowds and by this stage as much as I was loving it I was also hating it!! Me and heat don't have a great relationship so between the sweat and the swelling it's fair to say I was just looking and feeling disgusting. Ange and I took our pics and got the hell out of there. It's ok I'll read about it later ...
