    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Gabriella Rome

    Fantastic hotel for Rome on a budget !

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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!!!!

    from

    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!!!!!

    Trickery

    from

    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.

    The next place we saw was the Pantheon, which is a temple that was dedicated to the ancient roman gods. We then went to the Piazza Navona and explored some more churches. The church of Saint Agnes had classical music playing and sitting on a bench looking around and listening to the music was pure beauty overload. It was unreal. The church is named after Saint Agnes, a 12 year old martyr who swore her loytalty to Christ (she said she ...

    ... what happened next. But first – a stop at a McDonald’s for a bathroom break. It was the busiest (and strangest) McDonald’s I had ever seen. More creative parking in their lot – they actually had a guy in the parking lot helping people to find spots. He pointed one out to me that would have inconvenienced about 4 other people if I didn’t come out in time, but fortunately, someone was pulling out at the same time I pulled in, and I quickly snagged that ...

    ... come in handy.

    I then went to the Coliseum, photos do not do this structure justice, I was awestruck, the weather was not going to stop me investigating. I went straight up to the second level to look from the top and it was astounding, I had to ask a couple of people to take photos of me as I was not going to miss this opportunity. I asked a couple of people in different locations because one of the photographers was not so great.

    ... just coming up and the sky was starting to clear up. The square was full of chairs and guide rails, but not too many people. Today was Joelle's last day in Rome before she left to go back home to Aquinas. So we told her wherever you want to go we will follow. We walked towards St. Peters Basilica and went through security. Walking in to the Basilica was like nothing I have ever seen before. This church is the church of all churches. There was not an inch that was ...
