Then once I left the shop at 2:30 pm I went back to my hotel and got everything ready and sign out of the hotel at 4:00 pm then got a taxi to the airport and I arrived at the airport at 4:30. so I decide to just get all the security stuff out of the way and do that first so I could just sit down and relax and have a bit to eat at the Briciole was just a nice little coffee shop in the ...
Ahhhhhh, what a day! It's Easter Sunday and my temporary family took me on a day trip to Rome, where they gave me a "quick" 5hr walking tour off the city!
It really blew me away... Everywhere you turn there is just amazing remnants of ancient and more "recent" history. I will try and get more pics uploaded soon on Facebook but I've included some of the highlights.
Firstly we saw the Piazza di Spagna which was ...
... It is a nice arch, but today the scaffolding covers it and it just takes the gloss off the arch, but you still see enough to get a feel of the grandeur of it. We walk past the arch and walk to the other side of the Colosseum and then enter, skip past the huge line that has formed and enter the arena. Although there are no special entry points on the tour, Thomas still has enough information to keep us intrigued about the Colosseum, even though I have ...
... as before mentioned) which is really interesting. Still not sure how I feel about it. It's a Franciscan order still today, but those ancients that have died have their bones on display as artwork. We walked by skulls, femurs, and fibulas. It's one of those times that makes me question what death is like and if our rituals of burying the dead are "right" versus this Capuchin culture. In a way, it's comforting to think that after these monks ...
... gay theme for the holiday, our hotel was situated between a bar and a clothing store, both were called 'coming out'. So each day we left out hotel and wandered into the middle of some very enthusiastic, colourfully dressed men, it was funny to watch j squirm when they tried to get him to go into the bar. They called me 'Sheila', I guess they think we really say that in Australia. Our hotel itself, 'the imperial rooms' were 50meters from the Colosseum! ...

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
