Travel Blogs from Rome
Our train from Florence arrived in Rome about 10.30, so off to find our hotel. Thank god Sam has some sense of direction and can read a map as we walked it to our hotel. Checked in but our room wold not be ready for about another 2 hrs so it's dump our bags and off to the Trevi Fountain and then lunch.
Our room was finally ready about 3.00 so …
For unforeseen reasons, we could not go to the Vatican (the world's smallest country) or St. Peters Basilica (the world's largest dome) today. We were really looking forward to Michaelangelo's work in the Sistine chapel, but the day got away from us. Coincidentally, on this trip, I have been reading Dan Brown´s Angels and Demons at night and I am …
We bid aur revoir to Paris yesterday morning. The morning was not very kind to us, mostly because I booked us a bad airline and partly because we were carrying too much luggage. The flight from Paris to Rome was scheduled from Beauvaix airport outside of Paris so we had to catch a shuttle at 7a. The ride was not too bad - an hour, but Ryan Air …
We arrived early in the morning, though we've requested early check-in, unfortunately the hotel said there're no room available until 2pm...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars International Palace Rome
After using this site extensively to book our trip, it's time for us to return the favour and submit a review!
we got a wonderful room on a high floor, one of few with a private balcony facing the street and beyond. great view. room was small, but that's true of many european hotels. bathroom was pretty, and fairly big. it looked as if it had been renovated recently.
Great location, make sure to get the large rooms
We recently stayed twice at this hotel. The first time for one night,we got an excellent room, the next time was for two nights and the room was typical european- pretty small, shower didnt have much force and a very small head. So, make sure when you book, you request a good sized, room 411 was great. The other time room # 504 was pretty small, and the shower was not too great. They didnt have any other rooms to move us till next day.
Great location 10 mins from Termini, easy to find. Rooms quite small and no dressing table just a mirror in bathroom, also dark with hardly any natural light. Whole hotel very clean, breakfast average (I'm sure a 4* star hotel should'nt serve watered down low calorie orange squash at breakfast). One other point we asked for an alarm call at 7.00am on the day of our departure, I saw the receptionist write it down. The alarm went off at 5.45am, when I called down to reception he just replied "it says 6.00am on the list", no apology what so ever, obviously not so good when you have a day of travelling in front of you... In addition I would say that the staff do have problems smiling!!
Pleasant and clean
The International Palace was clean and tidy. Not a four star but very nice nonetheless. The rooms were clean and modern and the breakfast was more than sufficient. Only thing I would say is to ask for a room at the back- the Via Nazionale is very busy and noisy! Location was excellent- very close to the Colloseum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.
4 star hotel and 2 star service
The hotel is very pretty and clean. Good location. However, the service is really bad. The staffs are rude and not very helpful. We asked the concierge to assist us for reservations and she refuse to help us.
Additionally, the information they gave to us were wrong most of the time.It is probably a 4 star hotel with 2 star service.
Good for the price
Hotel was very well located and easy to find. Rooms were clean although a bit on the small side. Staff were helpful when asked. Breakfast was awful. It's a good hotel for a quick trip to rome especially if you are on a budget. Not really a 4 star but perfectly adequate.
While visiting Rome in November 2003 we were staying in this newly opened hotel, located in the heart of ancient Rome, short distance to all sights. We enjoyed spacious room and marble/tile bathroom both tastefully decorated. Daily breakfast was disappointing, limited selection and the worst selection of meats and cheeses. We were also surprised that our sheets were not changed daily. Not a 4* hotel category.
Not so impressive
We stayed here during 2003 Thanksgiving vacation in room 506, which was a bit disappointing. They placed our party of 3 in a room with 2 twin beds pushed together and a cot for my 18 year old son. The bathroon did not have electrical outlet. No A/C and smog from window was bad at times. When we asked for different room-was told this was one of the biggest and no other room available. Maybe you will have better luck.
I got married in Rome (at the Campidoglio) in March, and have spent quite a lot of time in Rome prior checking out lots, and I mean LOTS of hotels. International Palace was the one that we settled on for the main recommendation for our families and guests - it is very modern & clean (unlike many of the so called 'top' hotels in Rome), and in a great location on Via Nazionale - which is perfect for shopping (suits and shoes a plenty).It is walkable from the Rome metro, and is top quality for a realistic price for a 4* hotel costing about 120/US$120. Beats all other hotels in its class.Hotel is nicely located, rooms are large, quiet - very good double glazing, and perfect for shopping in the sales!It classes the rooms as suites, as some rooms have cooking facilities, and some rooms are unique in their design. Staff were great.A great find!!Nik
