More to the sun in a bit, but first let me finish off the night last night.....
We left the hotel around 7:30pm and travelled to the town of Ariccia, which is about 15 miles southwest of Rome. We were joining some of Paul's Italian relatives at a restaurant that specialized in porchetta, which is roasted pork. We met with Paul's fathers cousins, their children and their children. There was not alot of English spoken, but we were ...
... the stalls were majority clean and well presented...most had fixed prices and wouldn't even barter. After this, we wondered to the Egyptian Spice Market and the New Mosque (built in the 1600’s but still known as the NEW mosque!). Mum severely doubted my navigation skills many times, but I’m a pro at this and I think I have her almost convinced to trust me; plus I have almost broken her in to wrestle the European streets on her own...almost. We caught a tram ...
... our bags over this morning. We were only in our room for one night. I had asked the guy who was at the reception desk this morning if we had to move. He said we were in the same room tonight, so we left our bags in the room. The sisters had to move us over to the Secret Garden hotel. It is another one of their properties. They took us over and we got ready for dinner. The new room was much better than last night’s room.
... day because they haven’t looked after it the way they should have really so its looking a bit run down... Well let them off.. it is about 3000 years old or something like that!! And it survived a massive fire so it’s not done too bad really!! After the Collosseum we headed to the Palatino which is just across the way... These are the Ruins of a Ancient Rome, some of it is amazing, and you just wonder how on earth they managed ...
... grow skyward with their roots planted several metres from the ground at the top of the ancient columns.
We hadn't eaten anything since we were in Basel and it was getting close to dinner time when we left the Palatine, so we decided to find some food. Wolfi's colleague had recommended a pizza place to try in the area and Wolfi was determined to find it. Tired, sore feet, drained of energy and with no food for several hours, I wanted to go to the first restaurant we passed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barberini Hotel Rome
Great location and great service. Beautiful view from the bar at the top terraze. Stayed there last July when the heat wave was at full force, and it was nice to stay at a hotel where you could cool off as soon as you came in. Good rate by italian standards.
Location enabled us to have good access to Via Veneto. My luggage didn't make it on arrival to Rome, and the desk person was very helpful with phone calls and communication with Air France. We just went out to see the sights, and he took and made calls on my behalf. He was very helpful. The hotel is quite expensive, but nice for a first night.
Made for a Nice Stay
In general, I have to say thumbs up to the Barberini hotel. The staff, in general, was friendly and efficient. The room was small, but well decorated and large enough to be functional for 2. As mentioned previously, the breakfast was held in the basement, but you could go to the roof for drinks in the evening or to just enjoy to nice view of Rome at sunset. The air conditioning was functional, but as Ive found in a number of other European hotels, would not cool much below 23 C (software limited I think). Manageable, but a bit warm if you are used to sleeping in a cool room.The location was decent. It was close to the Barberini subway stop, within close walking distance to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, and reasonably close to the Pantheon and ruins. In all honesty, Id probably look for something a bit more central to those locations if I returned, but I think it would be difficult for the price and quality of the room.
Terrific and a pretty good value
Nice hotel in a perfect location and a quiet rooftop bar with a view.
We got a decent rate (by Rome standards) of about 250 euros a night, and I can't imagine the more expensive hotels being much better. Room was small, but aren't they all? Our room faced the street on the 2nd floor and was as quiet as could be. Impressive.
Exceptional service, lovely hotel
Staff was very friendly especially the breakfast crew which started our 3 days on a good note. Shower was a bit small but everything was relatively new-marble bathroom. Couldn't ask for a better location!
Clean But Small Rooms
We arrived at the hotel at 11PM and were surprised that there was only one receptionist who couldn't help us with our bags (NO PORTER). Our room was very clean and the bathroom was nice, but the room was extremely SMALL. Although the location is not far from the city center, it is far from ideal.
My family and I recently stayed at the Hotel Barberini. We spent several days there and it was the best of all the 4 star hotels we stayed in Italy. The hotel was very clean with modern updated facilities and a very friendly helpful staff. It's location was great, with an easy walk to the subway and all of the major important sites. I am a particular about where I stay and I have no problems recommending this hotel.
The Barberini is a nice clean hotel smack in the middle of everything.
We walked everywhere, even to St Peter's, but that was a bit far.
Colloseum, Trevi, Pantheon, all easy walking distance. Also next to Barberini underground station. Shops very close by, with lots of restaurants just round the corner. The hotel offers good accomodation for a modest price. recommended. (No I don't have shares in them!) Enjoy..............................
Hot, hot, hot
Just came back and wanted issue immediate WARNING! If you are planning a trip here in the summer, don't go to Hotel Barberini! Little to no air-conditioning with false promises. Beds are like concrete. The hotel looks beautiful with moldings, beautiful fabrics, etc. but you can't sleep under these conditions. Rooms tiny! bathrooms good size. Location could be better. Even though Piazza Barberini is central, no one hangs out there. You're better off staying closer to Piazza Navonna or Spanish Steps. Everytime our family had to walk home it was up hill.
Because the manage knew the air would not get better and told us it would I wouldn't trust this hotel at anytime of the year .
Nice Location, Nice Place
Very nice hotel smack dab in the center of rome. Really great location to be close to everything. Spanish Steps 10 min. walkColuseum 20 min walkVia Vento 5 min. walkTrevi Fountain 8 min. walkVatacan 20 min. walkRooms were average size, bathrooms were large by Italy standards and modern. Bed was comfortable. The hotel is not on a main street, but there is a little street noise though, shut the windows and the noise all goes away. Walls between the rooms are soundproof. Breakfast was real nice, assortment of meats, cheeses, cereals, breads & pasteries. For extra $$$ you can order off the menu. We felt no need too. The front desk was super helpful, always had maps available, directions, recommedations. Very Friendly staff. I would stay here again in a heartbeat
