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 …
... Saint Hood. An estimated 800 000 pilgrims had come to town to gather at the Saint Peters square. Luckily Rome is a big place with enough space to fit us in as well. It is truly amazing to walk around and see all those buildings from the Roman time still standing. A lot of them almost 2000 years old. The Coliseum had to be visited and was absolutely worth it. The Romans were well ahead of their time and it is fascinating to hear how they entertained their people with African ...
... to our struggle. Having settled in, and put a load of washing on we ventured out to wander around the Trastevere area. A very quaint yet lively local area, the ivy-tickled facades along the old lanes made it charming and inviting. By now it was 4pm and the streets were getting crowded not only with locals preparing for their passeggiata (stroll), but street vendors selling their hand made jewellery, artworks, ceramics, and clothing, and even street ...
Today started a lot earlier than usual, as it was a bus free day the metro was the transportation method! Due to the 8.30 walking tour at the colosseum, we had to leave our accommodation at 7am to catch three trains to be there in time. The 2 hour walking tour of the colosseum and forum was interesting, the structure of the colosseum alone to be built in the short time frame and to still be standing today is outstanding! And to see ...
... spilled. I picked up the wine glass, the tablecloth, with the spilled salt and empty shaker, and the pop can and put them back on the table. Then I went into the restaurant and they were all wondering what had happened to me. Kristina and I had dessert, as it was included with our dinner. The waiter gave us one bill, and I am still confused about how much or who I owe, or how they figured it out. It was still raining, but we only ...

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.
