Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Rome-Pisana
All in all ok
We stayed 1 week at the Pisana Palace. The hotel caters mainly for groups-didn't really bother us as we got a good price-Euro 50,00 double B/B. The rooms are very small, even by european standards.It is within ease of access to Rome by bus( bus stop across the street) and is only Euro 0,77.Breakfast was excellent.Staff at reception: some were not very helpful when we need to change money or for information about the city. On departure when we handed in our key nobody said goodbye or thanks for staying.All in all, the hotel was ok but not exciting.

... Abbey is built into the mountain so sometimes the rocks intrude into the rooms, but do not stop the decorating of the surfaces with frescoes. The frescoes were created over the centuries. Some have no known artist while others have such illustrious names as Lorenzetti, the teacher of Giotto and working slightly earlier than Cimabue. Brother Maurus proudly showed me a fresco showing Francis of Assisi who visited the monastery before the stigmata. As a consequence the image ...
... with all modes of transport from on foot to buses sharing the space in the narrowest of streets. Although still early in the tourist season, the tourist hotspots are already jammed packed with people jostling for the best views, making it challenging to get good photos - yay for delete options on cameras to get rid of all those unwanted tourist headshots.
... Once the body was placed on the shelf it was sealed in with a piece of engraved marble. We spent about an hour underground and saw only a very small fraction of this remarkable site.
Our driver took us back into town to tour the Basilica of San Clemente which is a 12th century medieval church built on top of an earlier 4th century pagan church which was built on top of a 1st century Roman house. It is not uncommon in Italy to ...
