Historical Traveler Reviews Lirico Hotel Rome
A perfect spot!
We picked this hotel based on the reviews from Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. This is a great little hotel that is about 5 minutes from the termini train station. The hotel is extremely clean and has a wonderful help staff that spoke very good english. The breakfast room was very quaint and served a wonderful breakfast every morning. Our room faced on to the Opera house across the street, a perfect view. The decor was the best we had been at in Italy. Fabric covered walls with big drapes and perfectly accented furniture. The Lirico web site does this hotel justice. We got the best deal through the web site when we scheduled the room. We are real walkers, and the time it took us to get to most of the attractions was a little longer than those mentioned in the other reviews, but still close. It took us about 20 minutes to walk to Trevi Fountain and about 45 to walk to the Vatican. This hotel is definitly not for the disabled or the elderly, although most of Italy is not. As other reviewers have stated, there is a long stairway that leads to the hotels lobby on the second floor - no elevator. Otherwise this is a great spot. On a side note, even though it looks cheesy with its neon lights, the little pizzeria at the end of the via delle Viminale (a 20 second walk from the hotel) is great and served a great pizza for only 5 euros. Another side note, we stumbled upon what looked like a great restaurant over by the piazza di spania called Restarante 34. This place was packed and looked to have amazing food. We had reservations for the night before we left but were unable to make it. Definitely give it a try.
We based our choice of the Hotel Lirico on the reviews from the trip advisor site and we were not disappointed. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and the room was well decorated, clean and comfortable. Rates were very competitive.
A word of warning. The hotel is a short distance from the Stazione Termini - a taxi should cost you no more than 10 euros. We were met by an unscrupulous taxi driver who took us a circuitous route and then charged us 25 euros. If you ever find yourself in this situation, you should take the number of the taxi and ask for a receipt. We did neither! We will know next time!
Anyway, you can be sure that the staff at this hotel will take care of you. Leave it up to them to sort out your taxis etc. Enjoy your stay in this most central location and feel safe and secure from the minute you arrive at reception! This was a good choice of hotel.
Excellent location, 5 minutes walk from Termini rail station. The hotel is on the first floor at the end of Via Viminale (parallel to Via Cavour). The hotel is 5 minutes walk from Maria Maggiore and 8-10 minutes from the Colleseum/Forum, 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel to Trevi and another few minutes to the Spanish steps. The reception is small but cosy, the room was medium size but in perfect condition and very nicely decorated. The bathroom was small but in perfect condition, with bath/shower and bidet. Air conditioning also. Small bearkfast room with nice continental breakfast. There is a handy small cafe/bistro beside the hotel and a small supermarket a few steps away in the next building(in the basement). The hotel room wasn't cheap but was well worth it. We read the other reviews before we booked it and concur with the them. We would recommend this hotel to our friends if visiting Rome.
Very good budget hotel
We stayed at the hotel between 2nd and 5th Feb 2004. Prior to arrival requested info on transfers from airport to hotel. E mail received within 24 Hours arranging taxi and giving train alternatives. On arrival we were given a map of the city and details of tours available.
Staff very good. English speaking and always willing to help. Hotel NOT suitable for people with mobility problems due to access up several steep stairs. Rooms immaculate but basic. Air conditioning. No tea or coffee making facilities but 24 hr bar offering this service at 1.5 euro a pot. Breakfast, continental, plentiful and good. en suite shower in each room regularly serviced with toileteries and towels. Safe deposit box available. Both free to view and pay TV available, (if you have time to watch it!). Mattresses very firm. WITHIN EASY WALKING DISTANCE OF ALL ATTRACTIONS FOR ANYONE WITH AVERAGE FITNESS. Trevi fountain and spanish steps within 20 - 30 min walk. Coloseum 30 min, Vatican, St Peters basilica,and sistine chapel 45 min. Good public transport if you choose. Bus/Metro/Taxi. Good restaurants in locality..
(Try ALLESSIO, 300 Metres away. Out of hotel turn left towards Piazza Cinquecento and past opera house. Restaurant is on right hand side just at the junction of 2 roads). Have a nice time, (it's impossible not to in ROMA), Ciao
A Very good hotel, totaly refurbished. Good location , welcoming staff.
Good breakfast in a nice breakfast room. Room nicely decorated with very good bed. Recommended
Nice hotel - convenient location
We stayed in February 2003. The hotel was very clean, the staff was friendly and always at the desk, and the breakfast was better than most at hotels. The room was slightly smaller than the standard American hotel room, average for Italy. It's only a few blocks from the main train station (and right next to the opera hall), so we were able to walk there with our luggage. It's also easy to walk to any of the sites in the Colosseum area, or back to the train station for the subway.
Because of its proximity to the train station, there are many hotels and restaurants in the area. There is an ATM and wine/liquor shop down the street, and some nice restaurants because of the opera. I don't think that the hotel is handicapped accessible, as there are two flights of steps to the hotel in the building and a small flight of steps to the small elevator. Rome in February is cold enough to require a jacket, but not enough to make you uncomfortable, as we ate most of our lunches outdoors.
Very nice - recommended
Nicely-decorated, clean, but small rooms. En-suite full bath with hair dryer and towel warmer.
You have to climb one flight of stairs on entering the hotel, then there is a tiny elevator up to the rooms.
Friendly, English-speaking staff. Beverages, wine, beer, some liquors available 24 hours - just ask at the desk. Breakfast is included, but its not great. Just have some coffee or capuccino and a croissant to get going, and get some real food elsewhere. Skip the "orange juice", which is really orange Kool-Aid.
Very convenient location within walking distance of Stazione Termini. We walked pretty much everywhere from this hotel. Lots of restaurants/shops nearby.
Overall, would recommend.

... that worn tiled roads with marble ridges and some rain and you are in for a treat. On and off ramps are no longer than 10 meters, so they just cut in. 50 % of the drivers are on the phone or texting and some have a child on their lap! The mind boggles.
Riding in Vietnam is a very easy task compared to here.
Anyway- enough of that. I love staying in hostels as there are always nice people to talk to and at times if you have the same destination you can ...
... marveling at Roman engineering before heading to Buffato for pizza! This place was amazing pizza, very authentic and busy! Excellent choice for dinner near the Pantheon! We headed to the Trevi fountain only to find that the fountain, like much of Italy, was currently being restored. It was covered in scaffolding, but we still got to throw our coins in a little spot of water. So we'll be coming back again! Then we headed home to relax and figure out the next days attractions! - ...
... something that I mention and do a little homework on the subject matter - so of like being here. Naturally I do wish that to be the case. After this little expedition I will be take select groups to all parts so time to just do - remember one is a long time dead. Wander to the metro and pop up next to Piazza di Spagna, that is the Spanish Steps to me an' me ol mates. We had just a small taste of tourist sights in Roma, it can be brutal with many others on ...
... of cats - they are actually in Largo di Torre Argentina, a seriously old part of the Roman empire. Besides seeing all these cats sunning themselves and looking very much at home, I noticed a sign about not feeding them and it had pictures of cats with names who had consequently been killed seeking more food from the people who had crossed the road.
A little further up, in the corner of the square I discovered a welcome sign.... of course down ...
... the cat sanctuary), pantheon, and trevi fountain. The area sacra is the remains of a temple that were uncovered by a building project a while back. It is below ground level, so it is fenced off. This prevents people from getting in, but not cats. As an area that they can enter and exit freely without being messed with, it seems to have become a cat sanctuary. There were a TON of cats down there. I alone saw at least 10-12, and that is without any ...
