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.

... When we arrived at the fountain it was pretty disappointing. The fountain is currently under construction so there was no water in it, scaffolding all around the base and large plastic walls surrounding the pool area. Even so there were people everywhere! We didn’t stay too long here then headed off to the Pantheon. This was awesome with the old Roman columns and the dome on top, which is still the largest concrete dome in the world. We walked inside ...
... us like, not them you know. We kept trying to catch their attention when they were quiet, like, for a few minutes by talking about whether G and I should get married in Venice like. But to no avail, they were so wrapped up in their own like really loud universe. It was like hilarious. Tomorrow I am attending the Papal Audience so need to set the alarm for like 6.30am. Not too happy about that on holiday you ...
... day’s blog, reading up on places I want to see, taking a nap (!), and then headed out again determined to find that supermarket!
It was open! Maybe it closes every afternoon or maybe it was closed because it was Sunday, I’m not sure. It’s a pretty large market. On the ground floor it’s more like a department store with clothes and purses, shoes and perfume. The grocery part is in the ...
... around the city. This is the life! Friday: last night we had a great time, we went to the Spanish Steps and had dinner in a nearby restaurant. Then we wandered around the streets and slowly made our way to the Trevi Fountain. We are both really sick of people trying to sell things to us or asking to take our photo (because they want money). On our way back from the Trevi fountain, we decided to get ourselves lost (by me directing us back to the hotel because we all know my sense ...
... left no side of history unturned for us. This has been the highlight so far. Day three saw us hit the Vatican. Again we joined a tour group since we all agreed that for the most part we wouldn't have a clue what we were looking at and even though you can never keep as much information in as the guide says, it's all very interesting at the time. The guide explained a few particular paintings of what was to come in the Sistine chapel which was an amazing ...
