... the centre of Barcelona and as he peddled he told us about his city, it was such a pleasant way to travel. We went into the department store Le Corte Fngles, thinking it would be a bit different to what we have at home, but it's just the same as D J's or Myers, so we left without buying anything. Then we wondered back through the lane ways and streets one opening on to a garden and playground, the garden was bright and happy planted in yellow and the children playing next door, ...
We caught the train into Rome from our port of Civitavecchia which took 1 hour. When we got out of the station we decided to catch a Hop on Hop off bus so that we didn't have to walk all the way around Rome again like we did 4 years ago. So got the bus and got off at the Coliseum where we had intended on going inside to have a look around but the crowds were ...

... clearly were struggling, and we enjoyed the excellent view over Rome from the top. After more photos (well, I'm not likely to come here again) we went down again. After an argument over a gelato and more tacky tourist shops, we went back to the B&B. I discovered a new use for the bidet in our bathroom (I'm never gonna use it in the way it's meant to be used) - soaking my sore feet in warm soapy water. Heavenly!!!!
After a short break, I left Katie to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Anfiteatro Flavio Rome
We found ourselves in a bind and had to stay overnight in Rome. Although we only stayed for one night, I must say our stay at the Anfiteatro Flavio was very pleasant. They were able to accomodate our party of 5 at last minute notice and the room was tip top! The receptionist was very helpful and very lovely. She explained everything to us and spoke very good English. We had a very comfortable stay and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Rome. Besides being a very nice hotel, it is also a short walk to the Colleseum. Thanks Hotel Anfiteatro Flavio and keep up the great work!!
Very Nice Place to Stay
Anfiteatro Flavio is perfectly located for sightseeing, fine restaurants, and the train station. All are within walking distance. This hotel is very close to the Coliseum and is a pleasant 15 -20 min walk to the Vatican.
The staff was extremely helpful for anything we needed. They ensured that our stay was pleasant.
The room was predictably small, but tidy and the breakfast sparse but adequate.
We recommend Anfiteatro Flavio.
My fiancee stayed in this hotel during a little getaway in Rome recently and we both can only say great things about it. We were very warmly greeted upon our arrival by the hotel's welcoming and helpful staff and were treated excellent by them throughout our stay. We stayed in 2 rooms; the first smaller but absolutely sound proof and the second larger, more lavishly decorated but could hear minor, very minimal sounds from other rooms/outside. Each room had a fridge and second had a mini-kitchen. The bathrooms were simple but very efficient and clean. Beds were firm and comfortable (European style with 2 singles put together).
A Wonderful Bed and Breakfast
The Anfiteatro Flavio is a wonderful bed and breakfast. It is conveniently located within sight of the Colosseum (approximately three blocks) and a short walk (approximately two and one-half blocks) from stops for all of the major bus lines (which connect to all of the major tram lines). The two block radius surrounding the hotel is packed with restaurants, ranging from inexpensive pizzeria and gellateria to more expensive, formal restaurants, and include both Italian cuisine and ethnic restaurants (including Indian and Greek).
The staff is very friendly, helpful and efficient. The desk staff is particularly knowledgable about sites in Rome, travel throughout Rome and travel to points in Italy outside of Rome.
We can't wait to go back.
My family really enjoyed the service and support we received at Anfiteatro Flavio during our two week holiday in March, our 2 small boys ages 4 & 8 were very happy and felt like they were special guests. The housekeeping staff were just adorable to them and by the second half of our trip my 4 year old would give and recieve kisses on the cheek everytime he saw them. One of the women on the breakfast detail saved my 4 year old a chocolate roll every morning and often sent one to the room when he did not wake up in time for breakfast. My children were able to learn quite a bit of Italian as the staff took time to say things slowly and let them try to repeat it back to them. I found that most of the staff spoke enough english to help out my family members who spoke none. I was treated very respectfully throughout my entire time there and will be very happy to return soon on a more romantic trip in which I plan to bring my husband and leave my mother and children at home. I would definetly recommend this hotel to young couples with small children. Rome is a wonderful place and the locals love to see children but I would say my hotel went above and beyond to accomodate my family.
The rooms were newly renovated, the bathrooms fine, the breakfast was meager but typical of Roman continental breakfasts, most of the staff was helpful and friendly and the locations was fine for travelers on foot, virtually impossible for anyone with a car. But the inaccurate information on the hotel listed elsewhere made the reality of the overall impression of the hotel as negative. Although listed as already having an elevator on another travel site, when we got to the hotel we found that the lift was not even close to being done; the elevator shaft from the 5th floor to the basement was completely open and dangerous if one slipped or had children and the stone stairs and railings were loose or fell off in your hand. No one made any attempt to even offer to help us with our bags which meant schleping them up 5 rickety double-height, circular floors by ourselves. Our first room on the 4th floor (5th actually using the European system) was indeed newly redone and quite cheerful with a nice bath, thou we noted mold growing on the wall over the toilet. After two days, they did move us to a first floor room which was much better. However, we also noted that there were no provisions for escape from a fire in any room; in fact our first floor rear room had a mini balcony with a locked grate over the window. On the whole, the staff was very helpful, mostly young people making a start in the hotel industry or students looking for part-time work; however, the proprietress herself was less than helpful at any time; she seemed disinterested in being there or accomodating her guests in any way. We quickly learned to wait until she wasn't there to ask for anything or any help. All in all, just an OK place to stay for someone on a VERY strict budget, but only that. If you can afford anything more than a hostel in Rome, I'd look elsewhere for budget accomodations.
Great value for money
There's so many Hotels in Rome you really don't know where to start. Well, if you're after something relatively cheap (for Rome standards) then I recommend the Hotel Residence. Its in a perfect location. You can see the Colesseum from the street its in!! The staff were always very friendly. The room was looked recently renovated with great new bathroom. They are still renovating ... putting in a lift but we were on first floor so not a problem. For someone on a tight budget wanting value for money I recommend this.
