Today we went to the Vatican (again) and the Sistine Chapel. We had breakfast and then we dashed to the Basilica to see the Pope doing mass. We were only there for a little while and then we headed off to the Pantheon. It is a 2000 year old chapel and the old artist Raphael is buried in it. After that we aimed for the Sistene chapel and took a …
... had said it would be so I left my washing with a little man who said it would be all done in 1 hour, 11 euros thank you. I could have stayed and done it myself but I didn’t mind paying as it was so hot in that place and I would have spent that much to keep myself hydrated.
I then headed off to Rome Termini to make my train reservations to Santa Marghretia Ligure and then on to Milano and Zurich. Termini has no air-con and about ...
Went with fellow Jacksonvillians Margaret and Bob O'Grady on a drive to Ocone Winery today. Very nice drive, rural areas about 1.5 hours away from where we live. Brett being out on business was noble to make it. We had some excellent wine ...
Today was going to be a big day of exploring
the city and the plan was to get a bus to take us to the station,
catch a train into Rome, then metro to the Colosseum, explore this
area, head to the Vatican, do the tour, have a bit of free time, then
head back to the Campsite. That was the plan, but like yesterday,
Rome likes to change people's plans.
I woke up at 7am, got ready for the day, then I
took a bag of laundry up to the camp laundry place ...
... year-old churches fountains, and streets as a given. Yet, here you are walking the same streets where generations have passed. Of course, evidence of the Roman times and the church’s importance dominate the landscape, but contemporary life drives the city. We arrived at their huge rail terminal and were immediately boggled by the task of finding our B&B. In very broken Italian (we took lessons on the ship), we assaulted several citizens until we found ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bernini Bristol Rome
One of Rome's great hotels
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and we would recommend it to anyone. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and spoke English well. They gave excellent suggestions for places to eat and to visit. The breakfast was lavish. Our hotel room looked out onto the piazza and Bernini's beautiful fountain. Next door is an Internet cafe, and the Via Veneto begins on the other side. We probably wouldn't have spent as much ordinarily, but for a special occasion, it was worth it.
This place is a gem.
The perfect proposal...
absolutely fabulous...food,rooms,service,staff,views, 100% romantic, the perfect setting for our engagement. we will return asap !!
Nice location to stay with a friendly people!
Recently we stayed at this hotel, and I really like the location. It's not very far from any major place to see in Rome (ex: Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Via Condotti, Hard Rock Cafe....etc). The room is nice and clean, but of course you can't compare it to a 5 stars hotel in US.
The concierge people were very helpful. The complimentary breakfast were great and the server were very nice (again, just like any regular continental breaskfast, you can't expect like in major US 5 stars hotel in US). Overall I had a pleasant and nice stay in this hotel during my recent vacation.
Could have chosen much better hotel
great location. cramped room and closet. marble bathroom sufficient size. concierge not particularly helpful. next time, we'll stay at the westin excelsior.
An acceptable hotel in central Rome
My hubby and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in mid-July 2003. We were lunckily given a room on the 3rd Floor facing the fountain. The room is spacious but is really in need of repair. The hotel is in good location and you can walk for 10 minutes from shopping areas like Via del Corso. The breakfast is terrible and most are cold items. Don't trouble with the breakfast if that's not include in your room rate!
Anyway, the hotel is an acceptable hotel in Central Rome!
A great location
A well situated hotel with an impressive imposing ground floor.
We stayed in two rooms - the first was falling apart and dirty and after complaining we were moved to a junior suite.
This room too was in need of repair with a bathroom door that did not shut.
The hotel is rated 5 stars and neither room was of 5 star standard
The staff were however pleasant, accommodating and helpful
A graceful hotel that still retains hints and echos of what was probably a more glamourous and fashionable time (Think Sophia and Marcello). It is still wonderfully located, nicely maintained and appointed and graced with a service staff that was absolutely superb.
Do not miss the roof top restaurant at sunset or the excellent brakfast.
Blackouts were common, I did not feel comfortable in the dark: flood in room. Staff seemed unconcerned.
Indulgence if only for one night. Beautiful view from the Terrace on the top floor. Large suite, firm bed All marble bathrooms with jacuzzi, with everything you could wish for. Centrally located for all the shops. Staff 'your wish is their command'!
Next stop Bernini Milan!
Loved Bernini, over 10 return trips back here in 3 years
The Concierges are wonderful and knowledgeable, the rooms fantastic with fabric walls and great luxury and comfort, the health spa downstairs with the big whirlpool jacuzzi super, the location soo good with the Spanish Steps 10-15 minutes away and the same for other locations, I am not a big walker and I never take a taxi to any location in Rome, thanks to the central location. The Restaurant Olympus on top is truly as good or better than the best in SF, and more original, and the service always impeccable. The people there are wonderful and they try to please. Always. I have stayed at a few others, but never when they have room for me at the Bernini.
