Angelsserra stayed here on Nov 3, 2011 during their trip titled: Vacanze Romane.
Another day, another country. Although, if you don't need your passport to get in, does it really count? Neither of us can confess to being particularly big fans of the Pope, so it wasn't a prolonged visit, or one of any real significance. We couldn't even hack queuing up to go inside St Peters so stayed outside in the square under the sunshine …
Let's talk about Italy for a second. When you come down through the alps, it's very lush, green, and beautiful. Then you go through the Tuscany region and it's hills and olive trees (a little dryer). When we hit Rome, it was pretty dry and dusty (constant excavations going on). Naples must be Italian for 'ass' because it was the dryest/hottest of …
... these roads! I think they are probably the most insane people of the lot. Anyway we managed to make it to Capri and had another look around. At this stage I started to feel very average and I was pretty keen to start making our way back down to the port. We took another bus and somehow made it down to the bottom with no accidents! Amazing.
We had lunch at the restaurant on the beach, and I forced down a few pieces of pizza before I gave up. Emma and Lucy decided ...
... to see. Because of this, I am only highlighting a small amount of what we covered. We started out in the Pinecone Courtyard a large, expansive courtyard named for the enormous bronze pinecone, which is representative of eternal life. Also within the courtyard and in juxtaposition to its ancient surroundings is a giant, fractured globe created by Italian artist, Arnaldo Pomodoro, and given as a gift to Pope John Paul II. The sphere ...

Buena relación calidad-precio. El personal muy amable y las habitaciones limpias y espaciosas. El desayuno normalito, pero muy rico. La única nota negativa es la ubicación, ya que la zona en la que se encuentra es un poco fea y puede parecer peligrosa. Aunque eso sí, se encuentra al lado de la estación Termini de trenes. Hay que decir que no tuvimos ningun problema de seguridad por la zona. Lo recomiendo, cubrió perfectamente con nuestras espectativas, ya que fuimos a disfrutar de la ciudad, no del hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Ambra Palace Hotel Rome
I've stayed in hammocks in rain forests and five star hotels on four continents and this is the WORST hotel I've ever stayed in. The week before arriving here, I spent 3 days in Rome in a less posh, but much better hotel in the Spanish Steps area. After returning from a week in Tuscany, six friends and I arrived at the Golden Tulip Ambra by the Termini station.
We stayed at this hotel for one night in August 2003. We'd stayed in three 4 * Italian hotels during our trip by that stage - our previous hotel in Rome had a superb location but average facilities. Ambra Palace is the other way round - the service and facilities are fantastic, but the location is very poor. It doesn't seem unsafe, but the people 'loitering' in the street outside the hotel can appear daunting (I wouldn't be happy walking back there as a lone female at night).
Won't stay ther again
The carpet in the room was terrible, more like the underlay. Breakfast was great. The neighborhood was poor. I would not stay there again.
Stayed two nights at this hotel in June 2003 for 129 Euros per night.
Not in a good area
It has all the amenities of a four star hotel, as it is functional and modern, but the street it's on seems very unsafe and it is extremely dirty. You will see trash everywhere and, as it lies right behind Termini Station, many beggars roam the area. Make sure to take a taxi wherever you go, especially after six p.m.
Good service, rooms, and food
Everything was excellent. The lower price reflects that the hotel is in a neighborhood of migrant Pakistanis. If you like Indian/Pakistani food and don't mind a little run-down, it is perfect. P.S., The Pakistani returant next door is affordable and the food is excellent.
