We wake early to have our last breakfast and check out of the magnificent home we've come to know, hotel Buca di Bacco! Our driver takes us to Naples train station where we find our platform and wait for our departure time. And wait. Then we see an influx of military police stampeding the platform next to us, guns and protective shields at the …
There is something mesmerising about watching a luggage carrousel spitting out baggage as tired passengers eagerly await their possessions. As the Wilsons do this they remember those confident words of the Qantas counter attendant"your bags will meet you in Rome". Why would we worry then? After all the kind lady said! Even though these bags needed …

... and I had a large bowl of Gelato and then came up to the roof of the hotel for some cocktails and views of the city.
Melva - We had a good day but long and hot. Naples was disappointing in that we couldn't hear the tour guide so we didn't get the story. It also seemed to be a fairly dirty city and not very pretty. It probably didn't help that they took us through the industrial part of town. Not sure I would put it on my list ...

Then from there walked to the Colosseum, where thankfully we didn't have to queue again because we had tickets.

Historical Traveler Reviews White Hotel Rome
Returned today from a 3 night stay. Like other reviewers we had booked the 3*Accademia but were transferred to the 4*White Hotel in the same group of hotels on arrival at around midday apparently because our room wasn't ready at the Accademia. We had no complaints about this!
Just got back yesterday from Hotel White 07/03/2005. We where supposed to be staying at the Accademia but our room wasnt ready so they moved us to the hotel White.
Its in an excellent location 2 minutes walk from the Trevi fountain, you are able to walk to all the sights from here.
The Room was quite large and had 2 twin beds, very clean. The breakfast was just European continental.
The staff at the reception were very helpful and spoke English.
I would recommend this hotel.
Great value for an ideal location
Fantastic location, literally 2 mins walk to the Trevi and then another 5 mins onto the Pantheon, all via quiet cobbled streets. Our room (307) was a little larger than the others, event hough we had paid no extra. The bed area was divided from the living area by a sliding door. The bathroom was clean and modern, the reception was always staffed. The breakfasts were huge, buffet-style and the staff were VERY helpful to us. Worth considering the car service to/from the airport - it was 5 euros cheaper than the airport taxi.
Excellent location, great value and friendly staff.
Lovely Hotel, was moved here from the Accedemia which is part of the same chain (room there was AWFUL). The rooms are large and clean and the location is excellent, staff very friendly and helpful.
We stayed here in 2002 and were less than impressed. The room was extremely dark, there were stains on the furniture, the room safe didn't work and the stairs up to the sleeping area wobbled alarmingly!
The staff were OK but certainly not overly helpful.The location is good though.
Location: A small 2 minute walk up from the Trevi Fountain. Nearest Metro (underground) Barberini - 2 stops to the Vatican (Cipro) from Termini Station (Train, Bus, Metro).
White is alright!!
Great location - 100 yards from Trevi Fountain. Nice and helpful staff with good tasty breakfast. Rooms a little small but well catered a good shower. Rome was fantastico!! Lots to see, plenty to film and snap. Great service from all restaurants. And no queues at this time of the year!! Architechure wonderful. Food great, people friendly. Best city break ever had.
