When we were done we headed around the corner and found Dr. Connell and waited for the rest of the group to come. It started to rain so we headed under the palisade for protection. Everyone made it before it started to downpour except Kat. We were all wondering where she ...
Slept in till 10 then out washing on. I got brekky from the shop while my washing was going and made friends with some ppl in the laundry. One girl is new on busabout. She wanted to come into the Vatican with me but I was super vague with times cus I didn't want her being my shadow! I left about 2 and got some gelato from a shop which was really good. Banana yummy.

That evening we had a horrific thunderstorm, good news was that it cooled down for the night, no need for the noisy air conditioner and slept like a baby.
What a wonderful day seeped in history and grandeur. 95%25 of people in Rome live in apartments. No building high rise as no building can not stand taller than St Peter. These cobbled stone walkways with smart cars lined up the nose to rear on both sides. You take your own life in your own ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fiume Hotel Rome
We stayed at the Fiume last week 18 Sept. Good hotel but bar prices were high. But could not fault service or facilities. Room was very nice with 'real furniture', not made of melamine.
Brilliant little hotel
Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in August and we loved it! It was close to the sights, and even though the public transport was brilliant you could have a nice 20 minute walk to the Termi station! We used the Castero Petrio metro alot and found it quite easy to get you around!
The colosem and Trevi fountians are a definate must - but be aware of the sellers trying to give all the ladies roses!!!!
Hotel staff very helpful at giving information and the breakfast was def above what we were expecting, sets you up for the day!!!
All in all, if your not bothered about a luxury hotel but want a nice pleasent hotel - the Hotel Fiume is an excellent choice!
Out of the bustling city
Well presented small hotel located in the Lazio region of Rome. As a base for daily escapades into the city it was brilliant, Metro (underground) approximately 500 metres. Breakfast was of the continental style, plenty of choice and well presented. Hotel reception staff were courteous and helpful. Good shopping, brilliant restaurants (Il Piccolo) and local market all nearby.
Nice budget hotel - real value for Rome
It is a very nice and well run hotel close to main rome's attractions - rooms have all amenities and breakfast was very good . The very elegant and true roman area is one of rome's best with great shops , retaurants and beautiful public gardens (try restaurant "BEEF" in Via Basento) and it is not a place with lots of tourists . The front desk folks were very nice and helpful . Highly recommended if on a 100 euros budget line for a DBL in the centre of Rome !
Nice hotel, not so good location
We stayed at the Hotel Fiume for 3 nights in February 2005.
The hotel itself is very good value, staff friendly, rooms clean and tidy and a good selection of food for breakfast. We encountered a bit of trouble with the toilet plumbing but that was not really a major issue.
The hotel is a bit out of the way of the main areas and with it raining for most of our visit, we ended up paying for taxis from Piazza Barbarini though on a good day didnt mind walking so much.
Really nice Hotel
I have recently stayed at Hotel Fiume in February 2005, I was a bit apprehensive as to where to stay as there is soooo many to choose and reading travellers reviews it made it even harder..
Hotel Fiume was slightly out of the main centre but it is approx 20 mins on foot from Termini (slow walk). I found it to be in an okay location, nice 'local' restaurant around the corner, staff were great, room was a fair size and nice and clean. Breakfast is buffet and the breakfast man was really friendly, always replenishing the food even with only 10-15mins before breakfast ended. Would have no hesitation in recommending it and would definately stay at the Hotel Fiume again.
Not bad for the money......
Stayed at the Fiume Hotel in March 2004 for 4 nights. It is a fairly nice hotel although a little bit tired and in need of modernisation. The staff were very nice and the breakfast was decent. The hotel is located in a fairly quiet area of the city which is good, but it is still only about a 20 minute walk to the central sights. Also, there are a lot of decent restaurants just around the corner as well as some good shops. For anyone who likes cats, visit the Cat Sanctuary at Argentina Square, which in itself has several remains of temples, and was apparently the site where Julius Caesar was stabbed!
Our stay in Rome
We have just returned from a visit to Rome and stayed at the Hotel Fiume which we thoroughly ejoyed. The hotel is situated a few hundred yards from the Piazza Fiume, where there are plenty of good pizzerias and trattorias nearby. Buses to all the major sights leave from the Piazza Pia which is next to Piazza Fiume. The hotel is spotlessly clean, staff are very helpful and friendly. There is a lounge and small bar which is opened until midnight. There is a good variety of food for breakfast. Would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Rome.
