Travel Blogs from Rome
Another beautiful day in, you guess it, Roma.
Where to begin. Every day here feels like 10. I found a guided tour (free) starting at 10 am today, so this morning, after realizing I lost my phone whilst.. on a roma adventure last night.. was quite distraught. But I left it, because this stuff happens all the time to travelers. Passport is all I need (and perhaps money!). So that is life! THREE HOURS my friends, this walking tour was. We visited so much I can ...
... the train station this young kid came up to me and asked me something in Italian. I told him I only speak English and all the sudden he starts speaking fluent English. His name was Elijah and was from the states living over in Italy with his family who are missionaries. This kid was such a trip. He was 14 and basically entertained us for the next hour. He did all these crazy card tricks for us that I still can't figure out how he was able to do. ...
... was built in the late 15th century. It was pretty dark inside, maybe because of the cloudy day. There were signs that said you can request that lights be turned on in order to take pictures.
The best part of this church, though, is outside, off to the right (in the cloister). Bramante created the Tempietto, or little temple, in 1502. It is a perfect little miniature circular domed chapel, with columns ...
... was the best yet. I had a croissant with a fruit stuff inside and it was so good. I loved it! Now were on our way to Mount Vesuvius. We're gonna be able to walk around inside! 1:30 pm (Italy) 7:30 am (Italy) We just got done going into the volcano. It was amazing! We got to walk all the way around the outside of the crater and even go in. It was ...

If visiting then allow yourself plenty of time as huge place to wander ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residenza Cellini Rome
I have visited Italy several times, but I have to say that Residenza Cellini stands out in my mind as one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at. Donato, Gaetano and Goran were all so pleasant and willing to answer all of our questions about restaurants and how to get around town. They are very friendly and professional which was refreshing as I found that to be missing in a couple of other hotels during my stay in Italy. I would stay at Residenza Cellini again in a heartbeat. Our junior suite was spacious, clean and modern. The bathroom was large also, and I loved the jacuzzi tub which was great after a long day of walking in town. It's location is unbelievable. It's near the metro (3 minutes away), and we were able to walk with our luggage to the train station which is about 2 blocks away. Some 5 star hotels do not even match the ambience that Residenza Cellini offers. I advise anyone visiting Rome to stay at this hotel. You will love it as I did. A.
The best hotel in Rome!
Residenza Cellini (not "Hotel Cellini" as it's called here) in an incredible place! The staff is at your service 24 hours a day (tough to come by in Europe, at least from our experience), the rooms are clean and beautiful, the breakfast delicious. In response to the unfavorable review from the person whose feet were dirty after walking from the shower to the bedroom - he/she is not reviewing Residenza Cellini. Each of the six rooms has a private bathroom (and an immaculate one at ...
Rezidenza Cellini is a wonderful quiet retreat in the bustling heart of Rome. The room and bathroom are tastefully decorated and are well equipt with modern comforts. The staff is absolutely excellent and very accomodating. We had to change our reservation last minute due to a death in the family. I changed both the length if my stay and the number of guests. Some hotels would have taken advantage of the situation, but I was treated very kindly and was given a better price than I expected for changing the reservation last minute. Also, the staff helped my procure reliable and efficient transport to the airport. I highly recommend Rezidenza Cellini. Nice rooms and excellent service at the right price!
We spent 4 nights at Cellini. We experienced many luxurious hotels and it was the best hotel we stayed in our tour of Italy. It is a gorgeous and romantic small hotel with a great quiet location. We found there a very special atmosphere, refined classical music and fresh flowers in all the common areas. The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. We stayed in a lovely immaculate junior suite will all amenities and it was so comfortable that we could not ask for more. We can't wait to return to the Cellini. Mary Miami, FL USA
We loved this elegant, small hotel! The rooms are comfortable, the bathroom is spacious and very attractive, with hand painted ceramic tiles and jacuzzi. The staff was always helpful and courteous. We could not have asked for a nicer or more welcoming place to stay in Rome.
Elegant and Beautiful!
What an oasis of calm! Beautifully appointed rooms, a very central location and a great staff (Gaetano, Barbara and Donato) made our experience in Rome during the hottest week of the hottest June in Italy in over 100 years pleasant and memorable. Modern conveniences (air conditioning, cable) along with beautiful rooms made our stay so very special.
Residenza Cellini is a fantastic hotel - more like an exquisite bed and breakfast. It is well located with very large immaculately clean rooms and bathrooms with Jacuzzis - all at a very very reasonable rate. The hotel is run by 2 brothers Donato and Gaetano and their sister Barbara. They welcome you as one of the family when you stay. The night porter, Pietro is an absolute delight, truly a gem. The buffet breakfast is quite good with a selection of pastrys and yogurts, juices, and of course fresh brewed cafe to your specific order. The hotel is on one floor of a building and is very well decorated with fresh flowers daily. You could not ask for more. We truly felt at home here and for us this was a 5 star hotel with a 3 star price. It is located on a quiet street right around the corner form the Repubblica Metro stop. We booked online from their website at http://www.residenzacellini.it/eindex.htm We highly recommend Residenza Cellini if you are planning a trip to Rome.
Cellini is a hidden gem
My husband, daughter and I enjoyed a week's stay at Hotel Cellini in late July 2002. Very quiet. Beautiful rooms and very, very nice staff. Highly recommended. We would stay there again in a minute.
My husband & I spent a lovely week in Rome from November 29-December7, 2002.
Luxury and Space
The Residenza Cellini (Hotel Cellini on some listings) is a small place on the third floor of a building. The rooms are spacious, compared to most, and have large bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs. The staff is extremely helpful and gracious. It is a charming place, very convenient to all forms of public transportation and is a relative bargain for the quality.
