... to see the Ponte Sisto (a bridge). We walked passed many impressive buildings on the way and found it hard to know what we were looking at. We eventually got the hang of the guidebook and began to discover what we were seeing. We walked past the entrance to the Roman Forum and Capitol Hill before making our way down to the river. The bridge was lovely and river was very green and running fast. Ro took photos and we wandered slowly over the bridge and to the Campo dei Fiori markets. A ...
... human weakness into perspective. The pain I felt was so temporary and wouldn't affect my life at all. Jesus had the burden of the world's pain on his shoulders. It was a really powerful moment because it really put into perspective what exactly Jesus did for us, something that I struggle comprehending every day.
Later that afternoon we went to San Anselmo and met the priest that did our mass the previous day who talked about life as a Benedictine monk. On that hill ...

The tour also included the Palatine Hill, which is the birthplace of Rome, and was the home of every Roman Emperor. I enjoyed this part of Rome greatly. It was one of the few beautiful spots I saw during my stay. We toured the area where the Emperors’ grand palaces used to stand, and some ruins remain to this day. Interestingly, the word “palace” actually originates from Palatine where they were located. The ...

Friday 26 April 2013: Got up and went to Rome, apparently it wasn't built in a day. On my first day I was pretty tired from staying up so late, so I wandered around for a bit, but then went back early and went to bed. Very uneventful. I made a nice friend who had just finished the Camino in Spain and another nice girl from Cork in Ireland. Saturday 27 ...

Refreshed and with some new friends, we boarded the bus for our last stop--the Vatican. We drove past the old walls, and I mean OLD!-right up to the Square. There was a bit of ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Castellino Palio Bianco Rome
Poor, never use this hotel
The best thing about this hotel is location - it is extremely central, however that is the only positive thing I have to say about it. I was coming back from a wedding and I tried for several hours to get into the hotel - the receptionist had fallen asleep! Furthermore, there was a hole in the roof and my TV did not work. Will never use this hotel again. AVOID.
The worst bathroom ever!
Horrible bathrooms, the water was never warm. Staff doesn,t care about complaints.
Surreal, and not in a good way...
I was warned before booking for Rome that a location within the city centre automatically adds a star to Rome hotels. I didn't believe it then. I do now.
This is a two star hotel - don't let anyone tell you any different. The decor of "Modern Art" is dreadful - like the owner's nephew has decided that he is a pop artist and was given free reign to decorate - particularily bad was the "mannequin perched on a toilet" sculpture on the second floor. The breakfast was extremely inedible, the bathrooms suspect and the small rooms very dusty. (Beware if you have allergies/asthma!) If you are looking for a fairly strange, cheap, rough around the edges, two star hotel with a fantastic location this is the place.
I won't see you there.
Tiny rooms, rabbit warren, dark! Trades on its excellent position alone I am sure. My shower leaked all over the bathroom floor and the fridge didn't work. The reception staff just shrugged it off. I don't think the three stars are earned at all. At least I had french doors, alas they opened onto a corridor!
This hotel has a great location. A bit on the small side, however, but very comfortable bed and room! Bathroom was definitely on the small side, but everything worked, and really nice staff. I'd definitely go back again,
Great Central Hotel
I loved this hotel, it was right beside the main tourist sites, so central. The modern art lining the walls gives it a very modern edge.
This is a good quality, clean budget hotel.
This hotel was booked and paid for, sight unseen, on the internet, a salutary example of the inherent dangers of this course. Only the price was attractive (for Rome) - 67 euros per night The route to the bedroom was a rabbit warren, the room was barely large enough to contain the double bed, the bathroom was correspondingly miniscule, but the worst feature was the minute window which could not be opened, and in any case was barred from the outside. In the event of fire, escape would have been impossible. On request we were shown another room which appeared, if possible, to be even worse than the first. Staff were sullen, but we imagine that the hotel would be as unpleasant to work in as to stay in. It has taught us not to be seduced by attraction of budget charges without being able to make an on-the-spot assessment
Excellent Location and lovely hotel
Hotel Castellino is a very cosy small hotel, just off Piazza Venezia. The rooms were small, but very well decorated. The atmosphere was lovely, with modern art everywhere.
Perfectly located for discovering Rome
If you are looking for the perfect location for a city break in Rome...here it is! The room are basic but comfortable even if the bathroom is very small but functional for the 20 minutes you spend in it a day, after all you are here to discover the city (and yes there is warm water)..The staff is very friendly and helpful. At your doorstep you have all the ancient Rome site from the Coliseum to the Forum and all the beautiful piazza where you can seat on the terrace enjoying your meal.This hotel is a standard 3*, nothing luxurious but well maintained and clean. The definite advantage is its central location and I will not hesitate to go back there if I am going to Rome again.
I´ve gone through a horrible experience in this hotel. Despite the good location and the appropriate rooms, the bathrooms are old and claustrofobic. Much less than we can expect of a three star hotel...
I had a voucher for five nights. During four nighs I had no warm water!!! The staff was unpolite and inefficient. I've tried to complain wuth the manager, but he was never there. I've even made a call to the travel operator in Brazil, and the problem was not solved so far. In my return, the operator returned 50% of my money, and promised to the hotel.
