Travel Blogs from Rome
Rome was fantastic. Too much to do in two days. We were actually quite late getting from the Airport to our hotel. Apparently, there was a "Student" demonstration going on and our "booked" shuttle driver couldn't get out to the airport to pick us up on time and of course our flight from Frankfort was also late getting into Rome. We tried to get …
We arrived in Venice fairly late after our trip into Bologna, and immediately had problems trying to get rooms. For all of 30 minutes anyways before our common sense kicked in, and we rang around. The next day we got up bright and early, after being kicked out of our room for it to be cleaned, even though we didn't really care. We wandered round …
... about it. She was surprised that we didn't have many questions. This was all new information to me so no questions, just absorb it all. She ended the tour before the entrance to the forum. She told us of another tour that she ran with the catacombs and Vatican City. Nadzha was interested in the catacombs so we signed up for that. It was at 3pm, we had 2 hours to explore and have lunch. We continued exploring the Roman forum taking more pics of ourselves etc. We then ...
... travelling to get to where you want to go. Thanks for the suggestions but we'll use commonsense in future.
I must say that the public transport here is excellent 8 euro for a 24 hour ticket that you can use on the train, bus and metro.
Rome was extremely busy, it was good that Bruce knew his way around because we got to see quite a lot in the 4.5 hours we were in the city. Bruce fell out with a lookie-lookie while we were in the queue to ...
... I met 2 Chilean girls named Paula and Javi who are traveling before a college conference in Germany. We all chatted and then they invited me to go to the colosseum. And we had an amazing day together. So we intentionally started out going to the colosseum but the streets in Rome are really confusing and even though we had a map, we still got lost. But even getting lost was intriguing because all of the architecture is so beautiful in Rome. We walked around and took pictures ...

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.
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.
