Travel Blogs from Rome
We are leaving Italy today after 10 glorious days. We spent 5 full days in Rome. We went to the Pantheon, the best preserved Roman temple in Italy, the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Vatican City (which was beautiful, but exhausting) and the Spanish steps and Trevi Fountain(where were threw coins in to ensure that we come back to Rome). We also went to …
We had a great last day in Florence yesterday, seeing the inside of the Duomo cathedral, the Uffizzi Gallery, where we saw such masterpieces as Botticelli's Birth of Venus, and then to the church of Santa Croce. The church is a who's who of Renaissance tombs. Michaelangelo is buried there, along with Machiavelli and Rossinni. We arrived in Rome …
... to change into long pants and Sue had to demurely cover her exposed shoulders prior to us heading underground for our 3:15 tour. It was amazing. We had a US seminarian taking our small tour group. He was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic as we weaved our way underneath St Peters. It was nothing but surreal to see a necropolis township appear before our eyes. Maybe the humidity and lack of air under there contributed, but it took ...
... of Rome because our flight to Dublin isn't until the evening. It is crazy to think our trip is pretty much over after tomorrow! It has all gone by so fast! Thank you to everyone who has been following us during our journey in Europe. Your comments have been wonderful to read everyday. We have enjoyed Europe but we are looking forward to coming back home to friends, family, our own beds and big rooms! Love, Allie and ...
With heavy hearts (or sad stomachs more likely) we packed up and waved goodbye to Domenico before our trudge to the local train station. We waited on the platform, in the sunshine and wondered again why we were leaving. Places to go and people to meet I guess so when the train did eventually arrive, we got on and headed for Naples.
We walked off the train, out of the station and into a post office where, after some attempted conversation using simple words and hand gestures, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Raganelli Hotel Rome
Incredible surprise to find in a small 3 star Raganelli hotel a top class fitness centre. We (me and my girl friend) had a wonderful holidays thanks the good standard and high level of service of this 3 star hotel with some positive points which are difficult to find sometime also in a 4 star hotel. The hotel location is good, easy to reach arriving by car from the motorway, privite parking for our car free of charge. just in front of the hotel there is a bus stop from where in 10 minutes you are in Vatican city and shopping area. Restaurants and also other shops are at walking distance. The double room was very clean and comfortable. The reach buffet breakfast decorated in a very personalised and lovely style was the best way to start the day. The staff always helpful and professional gave us many suggestion on how to visit this wonderful city. The pleasant surprise: Just next door of the entrance of the Raganelli there is the "first fitness centre" big wellness area, brand new, elegant, technically top equipped, with sauna and relax area ( 5 star level) where the clients of Raganelli can enter free of charge and can enjoy the rest of the day. We will come back at the Raganelli and will recommend to all our friends and parents.

Great holidays, thank you Raganelli !!
Well after having read the last reviews about this hotel I can just agree with what was written;
the staff working there was just exemplary; friendly , helpfull, professional and always with a smile in their face; how everybody would whish to have it!
our two rooms were really clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet every morning was just awesome. arriving with two cars ,the private parking place of the hotel was just perfect for us having had in this way the possibility to visit this beautiful city by bus that can be taken exactly in front of the hotel.
all in all the price performance ratio and atmosphere was good and we can just reccomend this hotel to all tourists coming here to this great city!!
I stood with my girlfriend 4 days in the Raganelli Hotel this September and I must say that we were very positively impressed by the offered services (eg: excellent breakfast in the morning, very rich buffet, ecc) and by the incredibly polite and helpful staff. Furthermore, our room was very clean and comfortable. As a great plus I want to underline the parking possibility directly in front of the hotel as well as a good connectivity of the Hotel itself, the "Bella Roma"'s center can be reached easily by bus and/or subway. We are very happy for having joined the beautiful and relaxing atmosphere that makes the Raganelli Hotel so unique.
Find somewhere else
Hmm, this hotel looked really nice in the photos on the internet but they have been cleverly taken!! Rooms were very out-dated and dark. The bathrooms were pretty grim as well. The hotel is also miles from the sights!! However, the staff were very nice.
Not unless you are desperate!
The hotel is nothing like the pictures on the websites! The rooms are very basic and dated, although clean. The bathrooms are again very dated. It is situated right out of town, although is on a bus route to a metro station. Would book a hotel closer to the city centre in future! Not recommened unless you have absolutely no other option!
Stay at a different hotel
This hotel is far away from Rome (at least it's on a road where you can take a bus to the subway). The rooms are not very nice. The halls were dark and a little bit scary. On the plus side, the people who worked there were nice. You should find a hotel more centrally located this one.
Don't do it.
I found this hotel on a website, and from the pictures, it looks nice. In person, however, it looks a lot different! The hotel is dark, completely outdated, and just gave me an all over yucky feeling. I chose not to even walk around barefoot in my room, and there were two mysterious holes in the wall of our room. Despite this, my biggest problem with this hotel is how far away it is from everything you would come to Rome to see. From the hotel, you must take a 15 minute bus ride just to get to the Vatican, which is already on the outskirts of Rome, and from Termini station, it was a 30 Euro taxi ride! If you are going to Rome, there a million hotels that are nicer and closer to the attractions.
