Hotel Giulio Cesare

... still intact. We also went to a church where there was a crypt made up of monk bones. It was seriously creepy. There are bones everywhere. The ceilings are covered in patterns made out of bones and there are whole skeletons there. No pictures there either unfortunately but that might be a good thing. Today was also the day of the best gelato ever. I had Nutella, Mars bar and Nesquik. It was beautiful. Tomorrow we have an overnight ferry to ...
... back then. The Colosseum is a beautiful building, even after all these years of damage. We learned that they are currently working on restoring the original white color of the stone of the Colosseum and it will take two years to finish. We then wandered around the Forum and saw what once was Ancient Rome.

Also turns out that system works pretty well if you don't mind getting a carbo-load at every lunch: while others were munching pizza and paninis I had nutella sandwich, chips, croissant, and a couple boiled eggs. It'll do. From St Peters we went to pretty much precisely the opposite spectrum of Christianity: the catacombs of St Domatilla. I specify which catacombs because there are over 65 separate catacomb complexes in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Giulio Cesare Rome
The hotel was everything we could have asked for and more. I went on a trip with my mum and had a twin room. The room was extremely impressive and absolutely spotless. The maids cleaned it twice daily too. The breakfast was very good, only complaint was that the food was sometimes not that hot. We found the location great. Although not central to Piazza Novona area (where many of the nice hotels and restaurants are) it was ideally located for the Vatican area and also the Metro. This meant we could hop on and off the tube to get to places rather than have to walk everywhere - saving our feet for seeing the sights. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Rome.
My wife and I were in Rome to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and chose the Hotel Giulio Cesare on the basis of this forum's (and a couple of others) recommendation. When we got in, we found our room a bit small and dark and asked if we could get something larger. The staff - first in the person of Pasqual - could not have been more accommodating. We were immediatley transferred to larger and brighter room and a "matrimonial" bed moved in (it was romance, after all!). They told us no charge for the upgrade, given the special occasion. The rest of our stay was equally pleasant with the staff helpful and gracious - restaurant reservations made for us, afternoon coffee in the very charming courtyard, an excellent breakfast each morning (included in the price). Location is also ideal - a block from the Tiber, two blocks from a Metro stop, 15 minutes walking to the Vatican, 25-30 minutes to just about anything else (and Rome is a walking city!). We couldn't have been happier with the hotel and will certainly make it our one of choice for future visits.
Euginio is a true professional, first class staff and wonderful experience
This is the place to stay when in Rome. Private but location to everywhere and everything is within a 2 / 3 block walking distance. I will only stay at this hotel whem I am in Rome. I din't want to leave.

Average hotel, magnificent breakfast
We visited Rome and stayed in Julio Cesare Hotel between 11/3/2004-14/3/2004. When we arrived, we were very disappointed when they gave us an extremely small room, very smelly, located in the second basement of a neighbouring building - unacceptable for a 4stars hotel. After our expostulation, they put us in a close one hotel, which it was acceptable. In the next morning, we moved again in a Julio Cesare acceptable room. Despite the fact that the room was also small, it was clean, with nice furniture and full equipped bathroom. The breakfast was really magnificent. The hotel is located in a quiet place and the rooms are sound-proof.
This is an excellent City Hotel, although a little off the beaten track in a quiet residential area. Very handy for the Vatican and the main sights but slightly inconvenient for late night returning....taxis necessary really. Room immaculately clean but rather small; fantastic breakfast and overall well above the standard normally found in city hotels. Not much night life around so a bit of an expedition for restaurants in the evening. A small trade off for such good quality!
Great hotel, well placed for all major sites in Rome, most within walking distance. Excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Clean and quiet rooms. Will stay here again.
Just had a wonderful 3 night stay here. It is the best hotel in any capital city we have stayed in. The honey at breakfast form the managers own bees is superb! Ideal area for getting to vatican and a short walk across the Tiber to see the sights. Around the corner from the Metro. The staff in the hotel are very friendly the room we had was cosy and spotless. Traffic noise may be a problem if you need the windows open but in summer the air con would cool you down and you are not really bothered by the traffic with the windows shut. The area has some good places where the locals eat, they are resonably priced and the food is good. We will definately stay here again
Great hotel on a quiet street! The accommodations were fine and the staff were very helpful. The continental breakfast was outstanding!! Somewhat expensive, however.
This Hotel is fantastic. i stayed here for a week in August 04. The Hotel itself was Beautiful, the staff were brilliant, especially Luigi the Bar Manager and Peter on Reception (couldn't do enough for us) and the food was excellent. The room was lovely, a little on the small side, but myself my Husband and our two children were in the one room so if their are only two of you, there would be plenty of room.
If you are travelling to Rome, i would highly recommend this Hotel.
Have stayed here many times. Eugenio is the GM and Luigi is at the bar.
Great breakfast included. Whole operation is excellent.
