Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Julia Rome
A good buy and a pleasant surprise.
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Julia May 31 and June 1. We booked our room well in advance and I was a little concerned when I found these reviews shortly before our departure but the whole experience was a very pleasant surprise. The staff is very helpful, gave a great restaurant recommendation. Our room was large (a shock), clean and very comfortable. The location can't be beat, a wonderful spot from which to explore Rome on foot. We would gladly stay there again.
Not up to expections
We stayed here 8th March to 12th March 2004. The rooms were very small with tiny bathrooms (no bath just a very small shower) and not as expected when viewed on the internet. The first impression was not good - filthy carpet on stairwells and dusty rooms my complaint about the size of the rooms was ignored. Dining room cramped and only cold buffet breakfast served. The bar only has 2 tables and an extremely limited range of beverages so not suitable for pre dinner drinks or nightcaps.
The best thing about this hotel is its central location.
When I arrived in my room, the walls were dirty and dust was flying everywhere. After a heated discussion with the proprietress the housekeeper was promptly sent to the room to do a thorough cleaning. The next four days of my stay was enjoyable. The hotel is centrally located and the staff was in the end friendly and helpful.
Substandard in room size and cleanliness
We stayed here one night: Oct. 3, 2003. We arrived in Rome a day early and could not get into our previously booked hotel a night early. A reservations service set us up at the Hotel Julia and I expected A LOT more for 140Euro a night. We were in a TINY room on the 2nd floor. Comparable hotels in Italy are much roomier for that price. (We later moved to Hotel Cisterna in Trastevere, Rome which was at least twice as large and twice as nice for 120Euro). The Hotel Julia is like a run-down New York hotel. Small rooms with no decor and dirty walls. The bathroom is barely large enough for one person at a time. Other guests appeared unsatisfied with hotel staff's inability to get them either taxi or shuttle to airport. Breakfast very weak on variety compared to other hotels. I would not recommend this hotel.
Hotel Julia offers the perfect location, quaint and quiet, clean, great air conditioning in the summer. We could not have been happier.
Perfect for Single Traveller
I was very hesitant about the hotel, but was amazingly surprised once I got there. A bit hard to find, but once you get the layout of the land, it was in the most perferct place! Small and quiet. I had a single room with the bathroom down the hall...I was the only one on the floor using it. I did have a sink in my room. The staff was excellent. Bed was decent, and the room was very clean and quiet. The price was the best of all: approx $50usd a night. I will stay there again!
Give 'em 3 stars!
Stayed there 8 days in 10/2001. Who dared to give them 2 stars? Perhaps the nicest, most accomodating staff anywhere... Great location; we walked all over Rome (even to the Forum) from the hotel. Quiet. Loved the UPS store being down the street! Large rooms (not beautifully decorated, but clean, attractive). Great access to subway. Fine for women traveling alone. Check air conditioner to make sure it's working (they quickly moved us to another room).
Forget the views - great welcome
Not great on first sight as you make your way down the side street but we had a great welcome. All staff very pleasant and helpful. Position of the hotel is very satisfactory for sightseeing with transport nearby with many such as Trevi in walking distance. Good accomodation and perfectly adequate breakfast with waitress availablity. Road outside can be busy at times. Excellent standard for its two star rating - much better than that.

... But when it arrived, it was absolutely beautiful. Not being food critics or writers, we’ll struggle to do it justice in words, but let’s say it was probably one of the best meals we’ve had out here, and we’ve had quite a few now. We reckoned the chicken must have been slow cooked, as it was just so tender and moist, and came away from the bone with no effort whatsoever. The vegetables tasted superb too, and were just full of flavour, you ...
The tour group was up and about fairly early, with surprisingly few side-effects from yesterday's marathon at the Vatican museum. Still, we loitered around the apartment in the morning, with the girls doing some shopping, while the tour guide worked on the travel blog. Since we'd invited the owner of our rented "palazzo" to join us for drinks later this afternoon, we decided to spend a few hours in the gardens of the Villa Borghese.

... of their time and we so very accurate considering they didn't have the technology we do now days. As we went from room to room I admired the beautiful painting on the walls of the museum while our guide told us what they were and who painted them. Most of the paintings were done by Raphael that also had influence of his well known college Michelangelo. After the museum we went into the Sistine Chapel. This I was very excited about as this is something I had always studied in school ...
... goofy self across the Atlantic in hopes to learn and grow as a person as well as better myself. Getting out of north Philly was just a bonus. As a La Salle Explorer, their cheesy motto that they feed you at freshman orientation is to "Never stop exploring!". They hope, mostly in vain, that this will instill some sort of pride and vision into minds of a group of 18 year olds. Although, cheesy at first, the more time I spend at La Salle the ...
... games that were the sole form of entertainment. Something I found incredibly interesting was that it wasn't just damaged by natural causes after the games were outlawed, but pieces of it were taken by citizens to build shops and many of the stones were used to build St. Peter's Basilica. And to think that the entire Coliseum took less than 10 years completely amazes me. This site took longer than we were hoping for and had planned so we no longer had time to do the Vatican justice, ...
