Travel Blogs from Rome
Only 90 mins after leaving Florence we were in Rome!! Took us a little while to find our Hotel but was in good walking distance so all good. As per usual we dumped our bags and headed straight out. We thought we'd get the HoHo bus, the stop was just outside the Hotel, so we could orientate ourselves, and were blown away by the city and everything …
... was no problem boarding. Landed at Toronto Pearson, still had ample time to eat lunch-fresh spring egg roll with mini Pho Tofu soup. It was time to board the AC flight to Rome. Watched 2 movies, this time we had complimentary earphones. Note that blankets and earphones are now for sale. We were served a full dinner with wine to boot! and a slice of lemon loaf for breakfast.
Arrived in Rome on ...
... I could hear incredibly loud music damaging my eardrums. Inside were two thousand sardines dancing to a bald DJ with a beret, sweating and no doubt celebrating the fact that soon they would be masters of this great country. Annasilvia and Olympia drew me in to the throng and soon enough I was at the front moshing and dancing with everyone else. I bumped into all sorts of crazy looking people, including but not limited to a pipe smoking gentleman in tweed, who had a ...
... sites of Roma. Our next stop was Vatican City.
Vatican City is a landlocked, independent city-state that consists an enclave wall within the city of Rome. It has a population of approximately 840 people and is the World's smallest country (both for its population and land size).
We lined up around the Vatican City wall for around 1.5hours. We were told numerous times that where we were situated in the line we'd be lining up for 3 to 4 hours and they were trying ...
... before we headed out to see the sights. We opened our windows to feel the hustle & bustle of Roma. All of a sudden it got very dark and the thunder started booming. The skies opened up! The city walk was going to wait. Luckily, JR asked us to pick up some cards when we were in Florence (too many YouTube videos of card tricks, and don't kid yourself, he is getting his share of pranks videos as well). Since there is only 1 or 2 channels of English (sometimes, it ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAccademia Hotel Rome
a great location, just around the corner from Trevi Fountain, 5 minute walk to Spanish Steps and easy walk to Roma Termini. The rooms were reasonable without being outstanding, bed was quite hard though!

Historical Traveler Reviews Accademia Hotel Rome
We just returned from a 4-night stay at the Hotel Accademia in Rome. We had two rooms for our family and both were nice and clean. The staff was excellent, accommodating us in every way. As everyone else says, the location is perfect -- right around the corner from the Trevi Fountain. We really liked this hotel and would stay there again.
La Dolce Vita at the Accademia
We stayed at the Accademia in February 2004 and loved every minute of it. This small, personable hotel was around the corner from the Trevi Fountain -- what more could you ask for? You could re-live La Dolce Vita every night (minus the dancing in the fountain). Breakfast was great, the hotel staff was very accomodating (booked tickets for us, sent out clothing for dry cleaning, always called a taxi for us) and from here we could walk to almost every sight in Rome. And the best part of it all was having San Crispino gelato around the corner in a tucked away side street. We will return to Rome, and to the Accademia.
Saved the day!
After leaving an awful hotel in Rome, I was so relieved that Hotel Accademia had an available room for us. The location was great, right near Trevi Fountain, near bus line, near McDonald's (for 16 yrs. old sake), Internet right next door at cheap rate. The staff was helpful, the room was a nice size and the breakfast was good. I certainly would go there again.
Superb location, wonderful staff.
Just back from Rome. The Accademia surely made our stay even more enjoyable. Perfect location, very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, great breakfast buffet. Rooms vary a bit in size, and some of the bathrooms are a bit small. However, this is a hotel we would love to come back to!
My husband and I vacationed in Rome March 2004. We stayed at the Accademia Hotel and had a great time. The place was clean, the people friendly and the location primo! Breakfast was outstanding! We would highly recommend it.
Best location in Rome
Can't beat the location--two steps from ther Trevi Fountain and two steps amy from the Corso, where buses can take you anywhere you wish in the city.
Breakfast is another plus--not just a croissant and coffee!!
