    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.

    Day 37 Rome

    A travel blog entry by cherylpaul on Jun 15, 2014

    Up at 6 this morning as we needed to be at the colosseum at 8.15. We left with plenty of time to spare so this enabled the boys to do some of their photography before the tour started. Unfortunately both the Colosseum & Constantino's Arch have major scaffolding over parts of them, which is quite disappointing and not good for photos, but the boys "still soldiered on" We met our guide and took off with a nice sized group of 13. We discussed the arch first, & were ...

    ... back the time we lost earlier. There was a guard at the entrance that did not look like he was in the mood for any foul play. I told the group to wait and then blend in with the next tour group that was allowed access through the secret passageway. We spotted a group of Japanese tourists (probably not the best group to try to blend with) and filed in line pushing our way through the port of entry. I heard the guard yelling something behind us, but we ...

    Roman Holiday

    ... gloves. We found some wonderful basil infused olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh mozzarella and salsa tartufata (a mushroom, truffle & olive spread) and had the most amazing meals at home. The boy can cook!

    On our first venture out, we wandered about getting the lay of the land. I saw a boatload of priests and nuns - apparently they don't get to take holidays. I saw a 2014 calendar of hot priests (pictures included) and I'm still not ...

    Train to Rome

    A travel blog entry by bkrj on Jul 01, 2013

    Circumvesuviana train to Naples. Nearly missed our stop as at first we thought it was the last stop inNaples. Then I saw the garibaldi stop and thought that the stop. Good job as we would ha e gone too far. Asked a lady to confirm and she said she was going to the main train station in Naples and we could follow her. So got off at Garibaldi and followed her up to the Naples statzione centrale. The station wasn't anywhere nea as bad as I had thought. Firstly ...

    The Carbohydrate Tour

    ... way to the main drag for the evening where 10€ would get you a glass, a glass holder satchel thing, and 3 drink vouchers you could redeem at the stalls. It was like Mordy Fest but with some class, lots of wine stalls, some good food and even a couple of beer stalls for Dan.
    Wanted to work off a few kJs from our carbohydrate fest of the previous week and a half so bought hiking permits for the National Park and went for a walk along the coastal paths linking the ...
