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.

... which you could drink and refill your water bottles from.We had some funny experiences in Rome, including an encounter with one of the Pope's Swiss guards that I had. Everyone was crowded around the Swiss guards in their strange uniforms taking photos of them when I was mucking around and made a silly comment. I accidentally grabbed one of the guards attention and he came over to me, I ordered him to capture ...
... Best pizza we’ve ever had in Italy.
As we finished, some folks walked by with the tiniest dogs we’d ever seen, in Italy or anywhere else for that matter. Their owner said they had just arrived on a flight from Finland. Because the dogs were so small, they were allowed to fly in the main cabin with the human passengers. They were friendly, but still a bit freaked out from all the activities of the day.

... in 1508 AD. Michelangelo was only 33 at the time, and he had just finished painting the Battle of Cascina in 1504. He was given free reign over the design and content of the painting. He decided to depict the Fall of Man from the book of Genesis. The Ceiling took him four years. Michelangelo pushed the project to be more extensive than the original commission, which was to paint the 12 disciples on ...
... given a short sword, called a gladius. Oh, and that famous scene in The Gladiator, the one where the emperor decides to let Maximus live by giving a thumbs-up? That's not how it worked. The people came to see blood. It's what they wanted. The thumb system is actually the reverse. The emperor would give a thumbs-up when the gladiator was put to death. A thumbs-down meant they could live, and everyone would actually have booed, and not cheered like they did in the movie. A ...
... s Basilica. This too is an awe inspiring place and full of amazing architecture, sculpture and paintings. We were allowed to take photos in here so we all went a little snappy happy. After we left we checked out some of the Swiss Guard and then headed for lunch and a much needed rest.
Back to coach we went and headed into the main areas of Rome. The coach dropped us off and we began our walking tour of the city. We took in ...
