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.

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.

... guide, Frederika. We started off by touring the Vatican Museum. It was amazing to see all the artwork and history contained there. After going through the museum, we were off to the Sistine Chapel. Words cannot describe how breathtaking Michealangelo's ceiling is. Pictures do not do justice to the ceiling. It is one place that everyone has to experience in their lifetime. We continued working our way through the Vatican and entered Saint ...
... we had forgotten. So we had a plan to buy a cheap kettle somewhere in Rome whilst sightseeing. Plan for today was Trevi Fountain, Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica. We walked to the Trevi Fountain less than 1 km. Now when MDW's brother and sister in law were in Rome in July, the Trevi Fountain was dry and under maintenance. Well nothing had changed. It is probably magnificent when fully operational but not today. Not throwing one coin into the ...
... for the strawberry harvest in and around Nemi, related celebrations last until the end of June. If you want to get there for the main event Sagra delle Fragola' [Strawberry Festival] do so for the first Sunday of June. On that day local girls in traditional costume offer free punnets to the crowd.

We figured Rome could do with more in the way of underground train service, our research later showed that they were trying hard to do this with the building of a 3rd underground line, problem is that every time they dig a hole they find more ruins and everything stops while they check it out.
We had a great day and spent good time at the Colleseo and Roman Forum, absolutely bigger than I ever imagined. We followed this with visits to both ...
If you go there you should be careful of people who are dressed as Gladiators around the Colosseum because when I took a picture with one of them they asked me to pay too much.
