When in Rome, or so they say....so we did.
Rome turned into a bit of a beautiful disaster (yes like the Kelly Clarkson song), so we ended up being there for 5 nights instead of 3 which allowed us to really see the city, and rather than boring you with what we did day by day, minute by minute, we thought we'd share the feeling of Rome, the …
Today we checked out the Vatican area. Really massive, really significant place. I could speak about how huge and old and epic everything was, but pictures do a much better job of that. Traffic here is stupid. People really don't care about much as they tear around the streets, so as a pedestrian things can be somewhat harrowing. We've found the …
Well, after far too long again on a train weve made it to our destination. Forgive me if this post lacks the correct grammer, the keyboard is definitely international. Left Nice at 10am, made our way into Genoa for a 2 hour stop. Grabbed a quick lunch and GELATO OH MY GOD GELATO. Soooo gooooood. At this point we also realized that Tyler may have …
... shining from Moses' head was taken wrong. Instead of light, they misinterpreted it to horns. The other theory was that the sculptor wasn't able to sculpt light coming from Moses so settled for horns instead. I can't recall what the other theory was but I think it was misinterpretation of languages. These old churches are amazing. The paintwork done and the fact that it hasn't faded much over the years is quite surprising. They've done a good job with maintenance. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lodi Rome
Personal and cosy
Hotel Lodi is not a highclass hotel and the good thing about the place is the feeling of almost beeing in a private home, where the staff cares about how You are doing and help You getting a nice stay in Rome. The environment is laid back and relaxed and in the evenings You can hang out with the other backpackers and the staff - I've never lived a place before where the staff spend their breaks with the guests!
The building is charming though not a palace, but when I were there they started doing some renovation. There is a nice little garden with different kinds of fruittrees, grapes and small cafetables. There is internetaccess and a kitchen which everyone can use.
First, let me say that the staff and owner did everything in their power to make this an enjoyable stay. They were wonderful. In my opinion this is a great hostel, but not really a hotel. It is unairconditioned, despite what our confirmation said (this observation was verified by the staff and owner). Therefore, windows must be left open at night with a floor fan, making for a noisy hot restless night. The rooms are tiny and the shower is over the toilet. This is a MUCH lower star hotel than a Day's Inn, for example.
Meet Ali and a real Italiano at Hotel Lodi Roma!! Comfy beds! Free WiFi and the Internet! A beautiful garden! (I dried my clothes there!) A little inconvenience was the number of bathrooms. Relatively less... But surely it is really great to meet many new people! So choose dorms! =)
We were only supposed to stay one night in Rome, but we enjoyed the atmosphere of Hotel Lodi so much that we ended up being there for 6 nights!
Location was excellent: were else in Rome can you find a Hotel with a luscious garden which is only a 5 minute bus/metro/tram ride from all of the major attractions without the full time pickpocketer's and beggar's at your door step.
The service: It was amazing to see such friendly staff in a country which is renowned for bad service that doesn't give a dam. This small hotel provides the service of a large hotel with such great friendliness and generosity which can only be described as Roman hospitality.
As we heard from so many others who stayed there during that week, "we will be back".
From the moment my friends and I stepped foot into the hostel, we were greeted warmly by the staff, and given all of the information we needed for our stay in Rome. The care that you get from the staff is unparalleled. The place itself is also great, with a lovely garden that you can relax in any time of the day and a sitting room with a computer (which they allowed each of us 30 minutes of free internet time on). We got a four person room with an adjoining bathroom-- we were told this was actually one of their best rooms, and it was certainly very impressive for a hostel. I'd stayed in a four star hotel in Rome before, and Lodi's room was comparable in quality. The only thing is that many rooms have a window that overlook the garden area, so if you are trying to sleep before midnight, there are often people right outside talking. Overall though, this hostel was definitely my favorite out of all the other ones I've been to, and I highly recommend it!
In march I took Veronika for her birthday as a suprise trip to Rome. Long did I search the Internet for the right hotel, not to expensive, quiet location, clean and safe. Something special I wanted as well. I knew I had it, when I found Hotel Lodi, located in a Villa from the 17 th Century. When we arrived, the owner, Fabricio, welcomed us personally. He took his time and showed us patiently on a street map places to got to and walking tours to take. He was helpfull and kind, like the rest of the staff. I can truely recommend this place. For the week we stayed there, we felt safe and welcomend. The rooms are cleaned every day, the showers work perfectly, top all that with a nice breakfast in the garden under blooming trees. Thank you Fabricio and the whole staff for a nice stay. Mr. Klotz
I still regret that I wasn't able to stay in Hotel Lodi for longer. I stayed there only three days but I absolutely loved it!
Great hotel, easy to find. Only one bus from Termini Station. Fantastic staff provided a warm welcome and have been really helpful with all our questions and queries. Facilities were really clean. Although hotel is not right in the centre of rome, it was very easy to access all the landmarks.
Would gladly stay with Ali and the crew again.
About Hotel Lodi
We stayed in this hotel for 5 days .The group working in this hotel did everything for us to be more comfortable .
The rooms are very clean and the zone is very quiet .
Everybody there is doing something to help the guests.
The zone is very quiet ,so when u come back from a long time walking and u want to sleep nothing will disturb u.
The zone is far from the noise and traffic and at the same time near to the centure(just 6 minutes by bus).
I had a good stay there.
thank u hotel lodi
Short stay but good time at Lodi
I stayed at Hotel Lodi with my sister and my brothers for one night only but could have stayed a lot longer. This was our first trip to Rome and the guy at the reception was so very helpful, especially when giving us hints on where to go for sightseeing etc. The location is good also, just a few stops by bus from the center. The price of Hotel Lodi is under average, whereas the service is above - that's just perfect!
