Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Gea di Vulcano Rome
This is the second time I stay at Gea di Vulcano, and have always loved it. The rooms are clean and the staff pays a lot of attention to details. Plus, for me the most important factor is its location. It is within walking distance to the Quirinale, PLaza Barberini, Fontana di Trevi, Plaza Venecia and other interesting spots. I would recommend this little hotel in Rome.
Comfortable and welcoming
My husband, son, and I stayed at Hotel Gea in March 2005 and had a wonderful experience at the hotel. We had a triple room at a cost much cheaper than many other hotels in the city. The staff was very helpful, particularly Mr. Agron, the evening front desk clerk. Beds were comfortable, the room was spacious and clean, and the breakfasts were very good. The hotel is situated on Via Nazionale, a fairly busy street, but the rooms faced out on much quieter streets.
We definitely plan to stay at Hotel Gea the next time we are in Rome!
Great hotel & location at a great price!
Hotel Gea Di Vulcano is a relatively small hotel (about 20 rooms) located on the Via Nazionale, near Piazza Della Repubblica. We stayed there for a week in July 2004. The hotel is located at a walking distance from the Roma Termini train station, where the Leonardo Express train takes you from Fiumicino airport. The room was very clean, and furniture looked like new. The washroom was quite small, as the sink, shower and toilet took all the available space, but everthing was clean. Staff members were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Gea, it's a great value for the money!

... they cost too. It was about a 10 minute ride in the car, and cost about 6 euro, which is roughly 9 Australian dollars. Not too bad between the 3 of us! Line up for the Colosseum looked pretty big. The ticket was 12 euro and covered entrance, plus entrance to the Roman Forum, just across the road.
... just the right bus to bring us back, which included much confusion. In the end, we got back easy-peasy with a bus and tram, but again, it was one hour later!!! We relaxed and freshened up a bit, then went around the corner to Sette Ocho, to one of our least favorite places thus far. We all had pasta, except for Brady and his requisite Margarita pizza!!! We are now preparing for a very early morning to see, WE HOPE CLOSE UP, Papa ...
... of "cheap" offers and bartering for the best deal you could get. After a couple of interesting exchanges we finally settled on a fare and were whisked off in a van with a very "aggressive" driver who obviously knew exactly where he was going. The 25 minute trip to Rome was in the early evening. Dusk had set in making the various historic sites, as we passed them, seem somewhat imposing. As we whizzed past the Colosseum, I thought "wow, that is bigger than I ...
... the first of many experiences like this in Italy. With our Roma Passes in hand we felt almost invincible. Like we had been given the keys to the city, we could go wherever we wanted' whenever we wanted and not have to worry about tickets ! The rest of the day, was spent soaking up the Vatican, St Peter's Square and it's surrounds, including a visit to the Vatican museum. The Roma pass got us in straight away, much to the disgust of the millions of people who were lining up in the hot ...
... fairly well. It’s also the home, apparently, of 100’s of cats. I saw only 3, but it was during the mid-day heat so maybe they were all resting somewhere cool and out of sight!
I walked through Campo de Fiori and bought more tomatoes, an avocado, and a cucumber. I also stopped in a small grocery store for peanuts and cheese—ha! This entire walk was only about 3 miles but I was bone tired by the time I got ...
