... not bad ). The next thing all these cars, trucks and people came, it turned out they were filming an add for T V, they had police to block the road, as the car with the man and a very attractive woman drove backwards and forwards along the road. Our bus was final let through so we were able to be on our way. We had an uneventful, bus trip into Positano and did a little shopping on the way to the beach, there were ...

After the tour, we had our first Gelato of the trip in the Jewish ghetto of Rome. We found out during our tour that members of Harley Davidson are celebrating their 100th anniversary in Rome.

... We got a gelato (because when in Rome :) ) and then walked to the closet metro line. The two sites we wanted to see that were in the same general area were a capuchin crypt (ie those brown cloak wearing monks like the creepy one in the da Vinci code's burial ground) and the Spanish steps (where locals chill out and eat). We went to the crypt first and it was so scary! There was a museum at the beginning which was all right, only gross thing there was the little whip things they use ...
We arrived late into Fiumicino Airport, the delay meant we had missed the last train into town, which would have taken us to Trastavere where we were staying for our duration. This meant we had to take a shuttle bus that sat at the airport for 30 minutes before it left, it then took us to Termini Station in central Rome, where the plan was to take a bus, but on arrival the buses were pretty sparse so we had to take a taxi. We had been told by our host that she thinks this would ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Morgagni Rome
We stayed at the Villa Morgagni on April 29th 2005 for 6 nights. We wanted to have a"quiet" hotel and this was excellent. The hotel is set back from the street and with double glazing the rooms are very quiet - some travellers in other hotels told us of horror stories with all night noise - but not here.
Exelent hotel, nice people, great room
We stayed at this hotel for three nights at the middle of May . The reviews we read beforehand were enthusiastic, to say the least. The reviews didn't exaggerate, the hotel was really excellent. The room was lovely. We stayed in room 310, which has a little balcony. Highly recommendable! The service in the hotel is great. They serve a nice breakfast (very nice waitresses - service with a smile). On the downside, the hotel is not in the center.of the city. We suggest you rent a moped which you can do for € 35 per day. The company we used brought the moped to the hotel. You can really use the moped for 24 hours. Great to move around in Rome by day and by night.
We heartily recommend this hotel to you!! Sally&Frank Wermenbol, Holland
Il bel hotel in roma
Villa Morgagni is located nr the University so not right in the centre of Rome but nevertheless there are bus stops and a metro station just over the road even the main bus terminal is only a 20 minute walk.
The hotel is lovely, nice rooms and decor throughout and there is a covered roof terrace for breakfast.
The staff are super helpful too.
Great value all round.
I would definitey recommend it and we will go back and stay there again.
Loved Rome! And I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend (3 days). As a single female traveller I found the location to be safe both night and day. The hotel is just across the street from a subway station and only two stops on the subway to Termini. I had a single room with a double bed and bathroom with massage shower. The room was decorated immaculately and the bathroom was marble. I particularly enjoyed the rooftoop breakfast. Room was cleaned everyday, and minibar kept stocked.
I would definetly recomend Villa Morgagni to anyone, and will probably stay there again when I return to Rome!
And an even better hotel at the price we paid. My wife and I spent the early part of our recent stay in Italy at the Villa Morgagni. What a find!
5 star luxury for a 4 star hotel
Having read the previous reviews, I couldn't agree more with them.
I booked the hotel up with Ryanair hotel services, who were fine. However, after I went into the hotels own web sight and noticed that they had "superior rooms", I contacted Ryanair hotels to see if they could upgrade me. They said they could, but it would cost quite a bit more. I declined at the time and contacted the hotel direct. To my surprise, they said it wouldn't cost anything, but it all depended on availability. When my wife and myself arrived, we were given one of the superior rooms. It was stunning.(one hint, never pour bubble bath in a hydro bath, it was like a comedy scene when someone poured a whole box of washing powder in a washing machine by mistake!).
What can I add to the other comments made on this page but to say when in Rome this is the place to stay. The room was not large but it was well furnished and the standard felt very luxurious. The staff Were very friendly and helpful and the restaurant recommended by them was very good. The only possible fault we found was that there was not many restaurants in the immediate area but what was there was good. The breakfast in the hotel was very good as well. The location of the hotel was excellent and appears to be a nice area. Rome is a wonderful city and the places to se appear to be endless, every time you go round a corner something else of interest comes into view to marvel at.
After reviewing many different online resources/recommendations we chose Villa Morgagni for our first stay in Rome (21st - 25th of April) and were extremely pleased with our choice. The location of Villa Moragni is great - just 2 minutes to the next Metro station - and also less noisy than most other areas that we came across in Rome. Our room on the fourth floor was excellent - if a little small (by american standards) - and included not only a beautyful, large terace overlooking some nice roman houses, but also a jacuzzi that made you feel like in heaven after the long strolls through the city. In addition it has a wonderful, very clean and at most times empty turkish bath & sauna in the basement that we highly recommend. Breakfast on the rooftop terace was equally rich (eggs, wonderful italian ham and fine cuts, fresh fruits and obviously great coffee) and of excellent quality. The concierge was friendly, helpfull and well informed in assisting us with restaurant reservations and ticket bookings. Overall we had an extraordinary good time and would come back to this place any time.
Villa Morgagni was excellent!
A friend and I stayed here from March 5-9, 2004. The hotel was excellent. We had a large (by European standards) room with huge windows and a great! jetted tub. The staff was very friendly and gave us a couple of great restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, cheese, meats, eggs, and several kinds of pastries. Best of all, since Rome can be a very noisy city, the hotel was exceptionally quite. It is set a bit off the street in what looked like a largely residential area. The subway (Policlinico) is around the corner and up about a block so it is incredibly convenient to travel from the hotel to the noisy and chaotic city center. Without a doubt I would return.
My husband, son and I stayed at the Villa Morgagni for 6 nights in December. The hotel is one block from the Policlinico Metro stop and bus stop. Very convenient to public transportation. The triple room was spacious by European standards and very, very clean. The beds and sofa bed were comfortable. The bathroom had a jucuzzi tub which was great to soak in after a day of site-seeing. The turkish bath and dry sauna at the hotel was top of the line. The hotel staff was very attentive and helpful. We utilized the hotel's shuttle service to and from the hotel to the airport. The driver was on time and very accomodating. He met us at the airport right after we picked up our bags from the carousel. He pointed out the sites as we drove to the hotel. The morning breakfast was lovely. Good choice of foods displayed beautifully. We highly recommend this hotel. It is set back from the street and is very quiet at night. A wonderful choice!!
