... We took about 1-2 hours to walk around the place, taking everything in and taking pictures. We got to walk around the bottom of it and also climb the stairs to take in the views from above.
After we left we decided we would tough out the rain again (as it was coming and going) and find the Trevi fountain. The map the hotel had given us was pretty helpful and so we walked steadily along the way for about 20 minutes. When ...
... Colosseum however, not so pretty. The queue begins way outside, close to the arch, then snakes its way past the gates into the internal structure where it continues for a further distance to the ticket counters. Thankfully, we had prepared for this event, and armed with a Roma Pass (entitles you to two entries into participating museums- the Colosseum, forums and palatine hill are combined as one- and free public transport for 3 days) we made a beeline to a special ...
With a rendezvous time of 1000 hours at the Pantheon apartments, and a 15 minute walk to get there, oddly we were being pressed to leave at 9am by Jenny, who was worried that we'd be late. We left by 9.10 and arrived at the Wintons at 9.27.
Moving on by foot we arrived at Spagna Station, home of the rats, by 1000 hrs. I bought 11 tickets and handed them to each person as they stepped off the escalator. Our metro for Termini Station arrived a minute later, with ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN Ambra Palace Hotel Rome
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.
