The journey to Tivoli is quite easy: the Metro to Punta Mamola takes 30 minutes and then a bus direct to Tivoli takes another 60 minutes. The only problem is finding the ticket office at Punta Mamola for the bus – it's a very insalubrious looking food kiosk, run by equally insalubrious characters, hidden in an underground passage below the …
The Vatican and its museum need the whole day. The queue for the museum alone takes two hours, but the treasures it holds are worth it. Once inside it is a sprawling complex of several buildings housing sculptures from ancient Rome, sarcophagi and other carvings and from early Christian times, fine art, Egyptian artefacts, maps, the residential …
The ancient city cannot be ignored. The coliseum is impressive today: it must have been immeasurably more so to the Romans of its day. The remains of the ancient city along the Sacred Way and on the Palatine Hill are extensive, but would be so much more interesting with some signs to explain what the various buildings were and how they were used, …
The drive back to Rome was straightforward; the fear was always about getting trapped in the one way system around the Termini Station where the car was to be returned. As it happened, the signing, actually the lack of signing, caused a deviation from the planned route well before getting into the centre, so it was partly by luck and partly by …
This morning we found Jason snoring away in his bachelor pad single room with all the lights and his clothes still on. We had to wake up around 7:30 to pack and check out before our 9am tour departing from San Marco square. The weather was still not promising but it was not raining yet and I had made a quick and full recovery from my cold. After …

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Mondial Rome
A great Roman Holiday
My wife and 3 adult children stayed at the Hotel Mondial for 4 nights 12/27 - 12/30. I made our reservation based on the reviews on this site. The proximity to the Termini train station allowed us to take the train from the airport and walk to the hotel. We were one block from a metro stop which facilitated travel to the major sites in the city. We also used taxis which averaged 7 euros to get where we wanted in the city. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free internet access in the lobby was a nice bonus. The complimentary continental breakfast was a great start to the day. We had 3 rooms, and all were quite large compared to our experience in other Euorpean cities. They were clean and comfortable. We would stay at the Hotel Mondial again.
We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Mondial in Rome last week. We weren't planning to stay there originally, but due to some complication, we ended up staying at Mondial.
I contacted the hotel to arrange transfers from the port to the hotel and from the hotel to the airport. Both of these transfers were excellent and well worth the euros.
We had a great stay. The room was nice and clean. The staff was very helpful. I would definatly stay here again. It is close to the transit and a nice walk to almost everywere else. Would highly recomend this hotel.
We stayed at the BW Mondial from 10th to 16th June 04 and I could not fault anything about the establishment.We had a twin room which was pleasantly decorated.Bathroom was perfect.We had room service breakfast which was always delivered at the time requested.The decor throughout was relaxing.Staff very helpfull and spoke excellent English--although they obviously appreciate it when you try out your Italian.Location of hotel is perfect for walking to tourist sites.Termini is only 5 mins walk away.Good for all buses and Metro.As the building is old the walls between We have been to many hotels around the world and the Mondial rates in the top selection.Aircon is controlled from within the room and so can be set to ones preference.Windows are very well sound insulated and there is no noise from the nearby roads.
Well worth its 4 stars
Very impressive. Spotless, spacious, courteous and helpful. Excellent room with beautiful bathroom. Bedding changed EACH day. Decor sparse but elegant and in good order (unlike another reviewer I felt my room had been updated quite recently - maybe they were halfway through the process - I stayed in Sept 2003). If I return to Rome I would certainly go back to the Mondial.
We stayed at the Hotel Mondial during Christmas week of 2002. We booked 2 rooms because we had our 3 kids with us. I emailed them way in advance to block off 2 connecting rooms and to our relief, they did just that! Our luggage was delayed by Alitalia and the front desk staff was nice about speaking to the Alitalia people on the phone about our luggage in Italian. The rooms were fine and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was good, not spectacular. We paid a total of 300 Euros a night for the 2 rooms including breakfast and tax, which I thought was reasonable for an expensive city like Rome. The location near the train station was very convenient especially for the direct train to and from the airport. If you stay here you will be happy. Don't expect super luxury, but a fine and dependable 3 - 4 star hotel. Eat at the Chinese Restaurant around the corner on Via Viminale - YUM!!!
Hotel Mondial - An adequate pitstop
The Best Western Hotel Mondial is conveniently located around the corner from the Piazza Republica Metro stop. The staff are polite and helpful with tourist matters. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean, although a decor update would not go astray. The bed and pillows were firm and of decent quality. The breakfast, consisting of: cereals, breads and sweet pastries, jams and spreads, yoghurts, cheeses, cold hard-boiled eggs and cold meats, juices, and coffee was plentiful and satisfying although no hot options were available. Overall, this hotel was convenient and adequate for a weekend getaway.
