Travel Blogs from Rome
While it was sad to leave the ship we are excited about the next part of our adventure. Rome impressions: crazy motorcyclists like killer bees swarming; beautiful women; gorgeous clothes; ultra-modern shops; ancient edifices; a piazza around every corner, carabinieri everywhere; a perfect Rick Steves hotel close to everything in a lovely …
Awoke to partly clear skies and braved the weather after breakfast. Took umbrellas and raincoats and were determined to find the Pantheon before leaving. Hit an area of the city that we'd missed last time here and came across several wonderful fountains and piazzas (piazzi?). We learned from a kind Carabinieri officer that there are somewhat public …
Tomorrow we fly home, and it is hard to believe our two weeks in Italy have come to a close. The weather here was very indecisive today and it rained on and off all day. There were some nice patches of sunshine, and we decided no matter what we were going to head out and enjoy the final day. We found some more neat areas today (although, everywhere …
Some really cold wet weather has moved into the area over here, and made it much more interesting to get around. After a cram-packed rail ride from Sorrento to Naples this morning, we got back on the comfortable trenitalia and continued on into Rome.
As we were headed to the station this morning in Sorrento, I was crossing a street, fully …
Left Sorrento early this morning on the subway. Had intended to take the more direct train, but got to the station early and decided to just hop on the next train instead of waiting for the faster train. Our car filled up by the 3rd stop, so I ended up shoving my big bag under my seat and putting my feet up on the part that stuck out, and holding …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Oceania Rome
Hotels in Rome are expensive, even in the off season.
Loved the Oceania
My wife and I stayed 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. The staff was great, the rooms well decorated and clean, the bed comfortable, and the location couldn't be better.
Loved this hotel
Stayed at Hotel Oceania for two nights while in Rome in September. Excellent hotel - beautiful, spacious, immaculately clean rooms with air conditioning; convenient location; nice breakfast buffet; helpful and friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again.
Hotel Oceania is the best!
We stayed here for 2 nights upon arrival in Rome and again on our way out of Rome. Very clean, friendly and excellent staff that catered to our every whim. Excellent location within walking distance of many sights and/or subway. Thank you for making our stay in Rome more enjoyable! Would highly recommend Hotel Oceania to anyone traveling to Rome!
Awesome place to stay! Would stay again in a heartbeat!
Awesome hotel! Anna greeted us upon our arrival on September 3rd very nicely and was a god-send when it came to navigating Rome. She walked us through a map of the city to the major sites and also provided us with restaurant recommendations for lunch and dinner. She was SO friendly and helpful! The hotel also arranged a pickup at the Rome airport which was nice since transportation in Rome is a crap-shoot. The driver was there waiting for us with our name on a card and we paid the hotel directly.
The rooms were nicely sized with AC and a TV. The bathrooms were small, but as expected in Europe. Room rate was just 138 euro if paying in cash and mentioning Rick Steves. Well worth your money!!
We wouldn't hesitate to stay with Hotel Oceania again! 5 stars!
The Oceania was a wonderful experience. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable; the staff is helpful to a fault; the location is fantastic; and the prices are very fair. I will definitely stay here again when in Rome.
3 nights in Rome - Hotel Oceania, Room 11, E138 per night for a double with a private bathroom, breakfast, small refrigerator, TV which we never turned on, and air-conditioning. This hotel was right off Via Firenze near the police station (close to the Quirinal Palace), consequently we felt very safe wandering around our neighborhood late into the night because there were policemen at little "kiosks" along the streets and also guarding the entrance to most of the buildings around us. It was about a 10 minute brisk walk to the Pantheon.
Very pleasant Stay
Stayed 2 nites last week in Rome. Hotel has recently been remodeled. The room is clean, spacious and nicely decorated. the bathroom is very clean and new. having AC control in the room is best especially in Rome. Breakfast is nice, staff is friendly. Location is about 10-15 min walk from train station, best to take taxi if you have luggage. Close to Metro stop and bus stops.
Wonderful hosts, excellent rooms...We stayed in three hotels over seven nights during our recent trip to Rome (early March, 2004). This was our favorite hotel.
Home away from home
From feb. the 13th till the 21st, my wife son 13 years old and I stayed at the Oceania. The owners and staff were more than helpful attending to every matter we had. They will make phone calls for you for any need such as resaurant or tour reservations , or for taxicabs. They are right between two metro stops, and 1 block from Via Nationale with every bus in Rome stopping there. I highly recommend staying here for any length of time.
