Travel Blogs from Rome
Hey everyone! Ashley and I have to be awake and ready to begin the flugfest home at 3:30 AM tomorrow and we have dinner at 6:30 tonight, so we're going to wrap this puppy up now.
Today was fairly uneventful. Ash and I treked to and from the Colosseum again, took and couple wrong turns and got the stink eye from our waiter for not eating …
Ash and I are splitting this post since we have two days to talk about instead of just one, so you're stuck with me again for a bit here. ;)
Yesterday morning was another early one for Ash and I. We rolled out of bed in Florence at 7 AM and hit the road to Rome an hour later. It was a shame to see Florence go, but the road …
... I liked it so much that I snuck a picture). Afterwards we got to roam around Assisi and get food. Assisi is gorgeous. It's the Italy you picture with the stone buildings with flowers and vines. So far, out of all the places in Italy we have been, this is where I would buy a house.
September 28th: I got to sleep in today! Corinne and I went over to the other side of the Tiber River to eat and do homework. The waiter was very insistent that we learn Italian and he taught ...
... about 5000 other people. We were both sweltering in the heat as we had made sure that we dressed appropriately for the Vatican. The line moved reasonably quickly and within 3/4 of an hour we were inside with about 10 000 others. We got an audio guide to share and it was an incredible experience but far too many people there. We did manage to spend over three hours there though. Once we left we grabbed a terrible ...
... would be no problem. With that in mind, we walk up to the desk and find out that we have to go to a different desk to pay for the extra bag and then come back and jump in the now really long line to actually check in. Abby wandered to go pay that fee and ended up seeing Katherine, a girl from our group, waiting in the security line that was moving at a snail's pace as well. We finally got checked in and got through security. I bought a cheap sandwich for lunch, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Roma Piazza Bologna Rome
Good value, housekeeping??
The hotel was difficult to find from the metro stop without precise directions, afterwards transport was very convienent. The rooms were average size with nice carpeting and modern bath rooms. Housekeeping services were a bit under par. The carpet did not seem to have been vacuumed before arrival or on subsequent days of our stay, we also found many stray hairs in the bathroom, The is no longer a shuttle service as listed in previous posts nor any internet access. The reception was even unable to help us reconfirm our return airline reservations. Breakfast buffet was substancial Overall the hotel was a good price and location for the money.
Fine hotel in Rome
We stayed at this hotel from 02/01/2006 till 06/01/2006.
Excellent hotel with nice modern rooms and modern bathroom.
Breakfast is excellent.
Busstop and metro very near the hotel.
Quiet neighberhood and soundproof rooms.
Very good value for Rome (we payed 300 euro for 4 nights, breakfast included for two adults and a child (14) if you book directly on the Accor site (hot deals)
We stayed at the Mecure Piazza Bologna in Rome as it was where our Trafalga tour was leaving from. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel and it was a good price considering the location etc.
It was either new or recently refurbished, the rooms were good size and nice modern bathrooms. They had free internet available and it was well located near the Tiburtina Train Station and Metro stops. It's nearly walking distance to the sites, though we caught a taxi back, which wasn't too expensive.
The staff were helpful and breakfast was a simple buffet.
We'd recommend it if looking to stay in Rome, and it is apparently nicer than the other Mecure hotel which is near the colesseum.
Have stayed here several times in the recent past on business. What strikes me most about the Mercure in cnstrast with other hotels in Italian cities is the modernity and the cleanliness of the accommodation. The rooms vary in size but all have good aircon and large comfortable beds with duvets. There's no restarant (apart from the rather agreeable breakfast room), but the neighbourhood has several reasonable, though not very exciting places to eat, within easy walking distance.
Modern hotel with cold air AC and quiet rooms. However, our bedding was dirty, good manners keeps me from telling you with what- take a guess! I could have forgiven the error of housekeeping but Management told us it couldnt be corrected until the next day because housekeeping was gone. I found this an unacceptable response. I find nothing more important in a hotel than clean sheets! This hotel failed misserably!
We stayed in this hotel last year for 3 nights in October. My husband, myself and 15year old daughter had a beautiful large room on the 3rd floor. It had a queen size bed and also a sofa bed for my daughter. The hotel was spotless and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Although the hotel is in a quite residential area outside the tourist area of Rome it is very easily accessable. We used the free bus shuttle service offered by the hotel which took us into the centre of Rome each day. We would then make our own way back at night on the tube (as the hotels shuttle service ended quite early in the winter months). The tube station and the 62 bus stop is very handy for the hotel. We have stayed in other Mercure hotels but this one is a cut above the rest!!!. Free internet access for my daughter which kept her happy. We only paid 100 euros each night as I found a deal on the Mercure website. Excellent value
We have spent 8 nights at Mercure Piazza Bologna at the end of April 2005.
Happy to stay here again
We spent 2 nights here in April, 2005. As this hotel has only been open for 2 years, it is still nice and new. Our room was very small, but smartly decorated, with a compact and spotless bathroom. Breakfast (included in the room rate), was very expansive, with a nice assortment of foods. Located in a nice residential area, close to the subway (3 minute walk), we'd stay here again.
Excellent Business-Class Hotel
After our experiences with smaller budget Italian hotels with its typically subpar room and breakfast, this Mercure hotel was a refreshing change.
We got a good rate from the mercure website (E110), and is definitely a business-class hotel. Room has a modern interior design, with a similarly designed bathroom. Breakfast goes beyond continental, with American and local favourites.
There is free shuttle from the railway station, and free Internet access in the lobby. It is located in a residential neighbourhood near Bologna metro station.
Q & Q & Q for triple satisfaction
I was very satisfied staying there for 4 nights. A quiet sidestreet of Piazza Bologna, higfh quality of service and quick subway B connection to trains (3 stations), Colosseo (5 stations), ministeries (8) stations. Or with bus 62 directly to the Vatican or Romes evening hub Piazza Navona.
Enjoy the wine tasting experience they offer for 4 €,the lively marketplave around Piaaza Bologna or the wonderful park in the vicinity (Villa Torlonia).
Excellent value for money, efficient service with a smile.
