As the first Hotel on our travels, there was nothing to compare it to. So no expectations. Instructions to get to the Hotel from the Terminni Roma were easy to follow.
Location was excellent. As it was only a hop, skip, and jump to the local Metro A Line (underground rail system in Rome) station Bartelli. Travelling this line on our Roma Pass in the first few days made it easy to get around the different attractions we wanted to visit. It also rested our weary feet and backs. By the end of our 3 days in Rome, instead of catching the Metro, we walked to the attractions, all within a rough 2kms from the Hotel.
Hotel King's amenities provided all one needs to help aquatint oneself to Rome. A simple room to sleep in at the end of a long tiring days. To relax there was the King Bar Room (though the bar was never attended when we sat in the room), a beautiful roof top area with simple plants surrounding it, and another roof top area, covered, to have breakfast in. It's laundry facilities were expensive (Min 6 Euro per item), so we are waiting till we find a laundrymat to clean our clothes.
The front desk was staffed by an always courteous attendant. They took the time to listen and understand what we wanted, and always provided us with good instructions so we knew what to expect and what they expected of us.

We arrived back in Rome late Saturday evening after an eventful bus tour to Pompeii. 10pm and most of the pizzareas were closed. Despite vowing not to head to McDs on our trip, we headed there again. It's a place we can order in English (via the self serve kiosk), access free wifi and sit and rest. On our way we stopped by the Trevi Fountain to view in lights.
... probably why such a nice place is within our budget — the climb deters all the fat Americans. It's a studio with a balcony and the most wonderful view, from the Spanish Steps around to the dome of the Vatican in the distance, and in between a patchwork of terracotta roofs and plat-filled balconies. We sat out on the balcony to eat our slice of pizza dinner, and now we're trying to stave off sleep for as long as we can. Longing for bedtime but it's only 6:30 ...
... Getting some awesome snaps as we went, we did 2 laps of the city in our bus tour, just a crazy city with so much to see!
So this night we went back to the same Irish bar and started sinking Long Island ice teas like they were going out of fashion, these things have 5 shots each in them and we had 6 of these ****ers, 30 shots each in total and not including the drinks we had during the day.
We met these 2 really cool American chicks who we hung ...
... had a festive air about it, but I'm afraid we didn't get to buy any Christmas presents which is what we had been hoping for. One of the most impressive buildings in the area is the Pantheon, a building built around the birth of Christ which has been in continuous use ever since. It is amazingly well preserved and looked very dramatic lit up at night. Tomorrow we head to Pompeii and Herculaneum for the day. Our train leaves at 7.30am and we don't get back into Rome until ...
... so we decided to waste a few hours walking around here.
There was a lot going on in the park. You could rent segways, bikes, golf carts, some electric bike/cart hybrid...the prices actually looked reasonable. If it was just me and hubby, we may have tried a Segway, but with mom along, we just walked. The park is actually quite huge - I think we saw maybe 1/3 of it. Had no plans to see the Borghese Gallery. We did notice signs for a ...
