Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Rome Aurelia Hotel
I stayed at this hotel in May of 2002, and I found it to be very clean with a very hospitable staff. No complaints!
I stayed here with my three children April 2004 and we were generally happy with everything. When you have children you don't necessarily want a 100% Roman experience; I looked for a hotel with a 'British' feel hoping the kids would like the food. It turned out to be more 'businessy' than the name 'Holiday Inn' suggests and we felt somewhat underdressed when casual. Apart from no courtesy tea service in the (lovely) bedrooms I have no other complaints. The tea services were supplied on request but were not topped up every day. The restaurant served nice food, sea food especially, and the shuttle bus service took us to the main sites via a request stop at Vatican so one of your reviewers had the wrong impression about this. We were very happy with the location thanks to this free bus service. Shame the pool was out of use though, especially as we had good weather. You could do worse than this hotel which I think is good value for money. Learn some Italian though as not all the staff speak English.
NOt very central to the sights
I just spent 3 nights at this hotel at the end of Feb 2004. The previous users did a very good job in describing this hotel. The rooms are clean and our room had a balcony view. However the shuttles are few and far between. Has a good hotel bar if you just want to hang out although the prices of the drinks are expensive. If you like getting away at the end of a long day touring Rome, then this is the place for you.
The Mickey D Hotel
No, this is not an airport hotel, nor a downtown hotel, nor a suburban hotel. This is a stop for tour groups along the freeway. Have the $14 breakfast. Wait for one of the free airport van, leaving every 4 hours.
View the physical plant and the top of the McDonalds from your room............
Stayed at this hotel at the end of Sept. for three nights. Did not like the location at all if you plan on seeing the sights like most tourists. The closest Metro stop was a bus ride away and the hotel is at the top of a hill so when you are tired at the end of the day it is a pain to climb. We ended up taking taxis from the metro stop ( 10 euros at night b/c of evening rate). They say they have a shuttle but it only goes to the Vatican and not often enough to take bake at the end of the day. Room was clean and breakfast was okay. Had internet access. Overall, I would reccommend spending more and staying in the centre of Rome to get have a great Roman experience.
Clean hotel, friendly staff
Clean, modern rooms. The rooms are small, though it offers a very "American" environment. If you're new to Rome and the hotel's location away from most of the sights isn't an issue, this is a safe bet.
Otherwise, there are better alternatives for a true Roman holiday...
Holiday Inn Surprise
Situated in West Rome, convenient only for airport transportation, this hotel is nevertheless very clean and modern, with some luxury touches.
A higher rating would have been given except for the presentation of the worst meal of our trip in the dining room. The breakfast, conversely, was one of the best. Due to the isolated location, only the nearby Jolly hotel might offer better dining posssibilities. Small bar.
Internet access only for laptop or palm pilot owners.Geared for business commuters.

... been through those low points. I set out on Contiki because I wanted to get my feet on the ground before travelling on my own. I've achieved exactly that. I feel far more confident walking around Rome, sussing out hostels, ordering food and managing the metro now that I've had my hand held the first few times. I feel good about going out on my own, even if I miss everyone. Having so much packed into the tour as well as a fair amount of free time ...
... sidewalks and crazy drivers! We thought Marseille drivers were bad but Rome is worse! We thought we were going to be run over more than once and quickly learnt to go out of our way to cross at pedestrian lights – they don’t seem to respect zebra crossings in Rome!
We had a good find though which cheered us up – a restaurant next door to our apartment block where we had an excellent meal! It’s ...
We woke up at 5:30 a.m. to a concert of howling crows and what we think was a cat fight or the crows attacked the cat. Sounded like we were in a jungle! LOL. A rainy jungle. We were supposed to leave for the Vatican at 6:15 a.m. for an audience with the Pope. You have to get there early in order to get a good seat and they suggest you get there no later than 7:00. He doesn't come ...
... line! Well I only had to wait from very close to the entrance since I was able to skip ahead of the others who were waiting in line so they woudn't have to wait in line. The clerk took me on a date walking around the city at night. We ate fruit from the carts and had kabob of course, since they are healthy. We saw the collessum lit up at night, among other things. It was very nice for walking. I went to visit a catacomb the next morning ...
... evolved over the centuries into its' present form with one single purpose in mind_________to keep me in a perpetual state of nervous frustration. The verb tenses,
the untold number of strange prepositions and the haphazard pronunciation rules keep even the most educated Italian improvising every time they open their mouths to speak. All of this came to a head that one fine day when I entered a ...
