... spends time here due to his simplistic lifestyle choices. The papal residence is not that large, and the town itself is very small. However, there is a basilica where the pope says mast for the Feast of the Assumption every year. The basilica was also designed by Bernini. Unfortunately, we were not able to go inside because a wedding was taking place that day!
The next town we visited was the town of Nemi. This town sits on top of a hill looking down ...
... we ended up at the Spanish Steps again. We caught the same train as the day before and ended up back at the hotel, this time with no pick pocketing. That night we went out for dinner at a restaurant that we could see from our balcony. The food there was nice, but I can't say the same for the conversation topic. I went back to the hotel room bummed out, packed for Sorrento, and fell asleep with the though of what happened running through my head. ...
Then - After long hard fight at Salerno and Anzio, the troops pushed north to Rome. On their way North, they were held up again for some time at Mt. Cassino. There only hundreds of German troops were able to slow the advancing armies. This was because of the superior positioning the Germans had on the mountain top. Mt. Cassino was actually the location of a monastery that the Germans claimed as a base to over look all the ...

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.
