Roma 12/1/2008 Arrived in Rome far more refreshed than ever before. We (read Paul, mainly) decided to sleep as much as possible on the plan rather than stay up as late as possible, have a glass or two of wine with dinner, watch a movie or three and then fall asleep when boredom, stale air, coughing from across the aisle and the passing of gas …
We woke up and had breakfast a the hotel after sleeping in a little bit. Mark had 4 cappuccinos at the hotel in order to get a great start to his day! He tried hard to make me like it, and with a ton of sugar in my coffee, I could handle the bitter taste for a few sips. We walked a bit and headed over to the Spanish steps, as we had our tickets pre-booked to see the Vatican at 12:30pm and had a bit of time to kill. There was a bit of construction at the ...
... Pleasant atmosphere. Good food and reasonable price - 2 courses, bottle of wine 86€. Suckling pig and linguine al pesto. And nice carpaccio for Neil. Plenty of english people here. Would imagine very hard to get into later in year. Back to hotel for a nightcap with Lucio. 2 Martinis and a view over Rome. But we won't be nightcapping every night at those ...
I traveled to Rome then visited Vatican City with a visiting family guest by plane to see/hear the Pope weekly sermon. What an experience! There were so many people from around the world: places including Africa, Australia, Belgium, Chile, Denmark, Ecuador, all the way to Baltimore, Maryland (my hometown). Many people traveled to St. Peter's square (Piazza San Pietro) for this religious pilgrimage. And there I was in the middle of it all. ...
... are so excitable, Glenda and I just looked at each other and laughed because we new we had arrived in Rome, how wonderful . As soon as the lights changed again, everyone just went on as if nothing had happened, and all was well again, knot like the road rage in Australia, thank goodness. The driver was telling us how hot it has been and how Roma is quiet at this time of the year as this is the time the locals leave for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Albergo Ottocento Rome
The Albergo Ottocento hotel was a great experience. Good location. Extremely helpful staff. Nice clean rooms.A bit on the small side but not a shoebox. Big bathroom with a jacuzzi tub which helped us to soak our sore feet in from all the walking. Would definitely stay there again.
A great place to stay
A lovely hideaway, good location but also quiet. Beautiful suite with patio. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Recommend this to anyone-will definitely stay there again
The Ottocento, well located on a quiet little street near the Barberini Metro station and within walking distance of the Spanish Steps and the Quirinale, is a lovely small hotel, with a very gracious and capable staff and clean, cozy, well appointed rooms with spacious modern bathrooms. I couldn't have been happier and would recommend this hotel to anyone. The bus and Metro options were a plus also, making it very easy to get everywhere, from the Vatican Museums to the Colosseum.
This hotel is by far the best I've ever stayed in.
Very Nice Hotel
We stayed at the Hotel Ottocento for two nights in July. We really enjoyed it and the price could not be beat. The Rooms were newer it seemed and the bathrooms were large and really very nice. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone who was planning a trip to Rome. The staff was very helpful and nice. Great location.
