... Advisor. As we walked up the place, I realized I was dramatically underdressed as everyone in there was so put together and we were in our lulus from travelling all day.
Regardless, we went in, had a great meal and went back to the hotel where we crashed for the night. We weren’t off to the best start in Rome and everyone had warned us we would hate it. Missing Florence already we went to bed, ready to wake up early the next day to begin our sightseeing. ...
Yesterday we had seen that a Church just round the corner had a mass in English, so as there didn't seem to be any Protestant Churches, thought we would go there. When we got there, the sign said 'No services in August' so we walked a little further to the Pantheon. There is a church there, actually in through the columns - The Basilica of St Mary and the Martyrs. There was a crowd outside held back by ropes, but I asked if we could go in to the service, and he let us in. ...
... then went searching for the Mamertine. We found it down a quiet side street near the Forum and headed in for our audio tour.
The Mamertine is under the c15th Church of Joseph the Carpenter. The church was built on the site of a previous church, which was built on the site of a Roman prison which was built into the walls dating back to the 8th century BC. In all this site has been at the centre of Roman history for many years but it is most ...
After listening to many friends tell me how amazing it is, I finally took the opportunity to see the Palazzo Massimo museum. The museum contains some of the best preserved marble statues I have ever seen, including the famous athlete throwing the discus. After seeing so many statues and having to envision what they must have looked like in all their glory, it was breathtaking to see one fully preserved. Also, the museum houses some of the remains of the Nemi ...
... indicator. On a side note, the Arco di Tito has an interesting history. It was erected to celebrate Titus' victorious siege of Jerusalem in AD 70, among other things, and when a 16th century pope made it the site of an annual oath of submission, Roman Jews steadfastly refused to walk under it.
The Foro Romano sprawls westward from the Arco di Tito towards Capitoline Hill. Truth be told, we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Trilussa Palace Congress & Spa Rome
Loved the attention to detail
This is a beautiful hotel for a great price. As stated in other reviews the staff is very helpful and the rooms are beautiful. The hotel offers a great, free breakfast in the basement the unfortunately didn't seem to get a lot of takers. The room was very comfortable and sound proof. The hotel was a little out of walking range, but the tram picks you up directly in front. We would definitely recommend it and use the hotel again!
I have nothing negative to say about our 4 night stay at the Trilussa Palace Hotel. Apart from being located in an ideal location just 5 minutes walk from the restaurants and bars of Trastevere, and directly opposite the Porta Portese market (sunday mornings), the hotel is incredibly comfortable. Newly refurbished, our room was quiet, spacious and clean with a nice balcony overlooking the street. All rooms offer air conditioning and the bathroom was in immaculate condition. Staff were very friendly and a breakfast buffet with quite a selction was available from between 7 and 10am. Overall I was very satisfied with the service and would definitely stay there again on my next visit to Rome.
Great place to stay, excellent value
I was looking for somewhere to stay within walking distance of the sights, but couldn't find anything within my price range that had consistently decent reviews. For the same price as a very basic, very central hotel, we got a lovely room, a very comfortable bed, a luxury bathroom with a brilliant power shower, and 4 star fittings and decor. The breakfast is tradtional Italian meats and cheeses, with cereals and yoghurt. The spa facilities looked excellent but are overpriced, but the internet connection in the room is well worth the 6 euros for 24 hours connection.
The location is ideal- the tram stops right outside(get a ticket first from the tobbaconists a block to the left of the hotel ) and in 5 - 10 minutes you reach " Argentina" where more less everything is within 5 - 10 minutes walk. Having said that, we just walked the tram route on the first day to get our bearings and it was a pleasant 30 minute or so walk. All along the main road where the hotel is located there are good places to eat - real food at reasonable prices. Go around the corner and head for Basilica Santa Maria in Trastevere and you'll be get a real slice of Roman life - you'll be spolit for choice for somewhere to eat.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for excellent quality at a reasonable price. Ideal location - just outside city centre which means it's a bit quieter but close enough to make travel easy - tram stop is about 50 yds away. Room excellent, but a bit small and storage space is limited, but the level of decor is top class and the bathroom is wall-to-wall marble with an awesome shower!
All in all you can't go wrong here .... excellent breakfast and friendly, helpful staff .... a joy to stay there and a shame to come away!
Just back from a week long stay at the Trilussa Palace and it's difficult to find fault. Location is great benefiting from the much better prices being 'slightly' out of centre but only a 5 min tram ride from outside the hotel to 'Argentina' which puts you in easy walking distance of all the main attractions. Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants just up the road in heart of Trastevere.
We didn't bother with the 'health spa' in the hotel and it does seem quite pricey to use and the only slight criticism would be a lack of 'storage space' in the rooms with just a small wardrobe and no drawers. But, honestly these are minor criticisms when set against the positives. Spotlessly clean, great staff, good breakfast, excellent location and quality, and more importantly excellent prices.
Go for it, you won't be disappointed.
The Best kept Secret (In price, location, service, and Quality)
Quiet, Sound-Proof room. All marble bathroom with an excellent shower system. Wooden Floor, LCD TV and internet, Free Safe and Free Breakfast. You can't beat it. Excellent bi-lingual staff. Euro 49 ride in a Mercedes to the Airport. Close to all attractions. Tram 8 and H bus stops right at the door. Beyond my imagination. I am afraid to write this review. Because people will start flocking to this hotel and the price will go up. I wish them luck.
Was astonished by this hotel,
We booked two hotels in rome for a 4 night stay , the other was a 4 star but had no magic. This hotel looks small on the outside but is like the tardis on the inside, the basment area is like a maze, great to explore, gym jacuzzui sauna confrence rooms, breakfast room.
Quailty like a jewel, by far the best fitments in any hotel I have ever stayed at!!!
Marble everywhere, 6 moths old and looks it, high tech shower , TV internet, the walls are covered in fabric, quality everywher. and its on the main bus and tram route into rome, tram 8 and bus H get you everywhere
Buy a 3 day pass, for 11 euro. Bus H takes you to metro hub.
Food great, they pick you up fro airport in S class merc.
Only thing was a dissapointment was the amazing huge jacussi- so romantic but at 50 euro an hour 5 times too expensive, You got to use it after being out all day all the same its just wonderful and sexy.
If you look this up on the virtual tour you will see the quality, would I go back, 100%
A differrent season next time.
good luck you wont be dissapointed
I stayed with my mother at the Trilussa Pallace from march 7th until march 10th. We booked the hotel upon arrival at Ciampino Airport. The hotel gave us a good rate via the hotel desk. Okay, the rooms cab be small, but who cares since you won't spend much time in it. A nice feature is the massage shower in the room. The hotel offers an excellent location for exploring the city. Tram 8 stops in front of the hotel and drops you off in the heart of Rome on P. Argentina. From here most of the sights are within walking distance. Arround the hotel one will find many places to eat. The hotel is located in Trastevere which is a beautifull area to walk around.
In the morning you can fill your stomache with a plentifull breakfast served from 7am till 1030am. No complaints about the staff either. Very friendly and helfull, good knowledge of english, what else can one wish for. We had a room on the backside which was good, since you won't suffer too much from any possible noise from the streetside. Overall speaking, good hotel, good price and will absolutely go back again!
We just spent the last two nights at the Trilussia Palace. We booked on arrival at the 'hotel booking counter' at Fiumincino Airport, and got offered a special price of EUR80 per night including all taxes and breakfast. On the pictures it looked a bit old and I wasn't sure if we had made a good decision, but on arrival they told us that they had renovated the place, and we got a nice room with a comfy bed. It was rather small, but that's never a problem for us as we are always out and about and just spend time to sleep in a hotel room. The room was quiet, everything was clean.
The breakfast was a pleasant surprise, a big choice of pastries, fresh fruit, cereals, cheese, ham, yoghurts....
The hotel is located in Trastevere, we walked everywhere and never once used the tram (which stops right in front of the hotel, very convenient if needed). There are restaurants in walking distance, and a few smaller stores as well as a 'Standa' Supermarket about 10min walk away.
We would stay at this hotel again, but try to get the better rate at the airport again (checking the homepage on our return we realized that they normally charge EUR130!).
Oh, and the girl at the Airport counter booked us a Minibus for both ways, right to the hotel door, which only cost EUR12 per person per way, I think the train ticket to Termini is almost EUR10 as well, and it was definitely worth not having to bother with timetables and metro / tram connections!
