Travel Blogs from Rome
Just like Milan, our time in Rome will be filled with tours and sightseeing, and lots of early mornings. We arrived in Rome later in the day, but according to our hotel receptionist, we were only a fifteen to twenty minute walk away from the Colosseum, so we decided to check it out. We have tickets to go see the inside for tomorrow, but for now we …
So after a nice, restful night's sleep, we awoke to a nice breakfast and headed out to see the inside of the colosseum! Wow! I really underestimated the crowds that would be there! The line to go inside looked like it would take us about three hours to get through! So we found a tour group that would let us skip the line AND give us a tour for a …
So after a super long layover in Atlanta, we finally got to Rome!!!! Yay! It's so beautiful here! The buildings are incredible to look at and you can feel the history in the cobblestones!!!! I love Rome. After we checked into our hotel, (which we don't love, but will do) we took a quick metro ride over to the ruins of the ancient city. The …
Our last full day in Rome. Had another great buffet breakfast in the hotel at 7:30. The breakfast is really good – cappuccino's, eggs/bacon, tomatoes/mozzarella cheese, meats, bread, yogurt, etc.
Our tour today was with Daniella at the Forum and Coliseum. We decided to walk instead of the rush hour subway, so we set out at 8:30 to …
Slept like a hibernating bear, due to Sharon and Liz's inability to read a map the night before, which made us walk half way around Rome until 12:00 midnight. Today, Rob and I removed all further map reading duties from both of them.
Had a great full breakfast at the hotel. Not included, but only 10 Euros each, so definitely a great deal.< …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Morgana Rome
As our first trip by ourselves, my husband and I didn't realize the nonconformity of star ratings. We will stay here for this leg of the trip but are switching to a hotel more up to our standards when we return. The hotel is fine. It's clean and well looked after. The room is small, the bed is hard and the shower makes the cruise ship shower look absolutely luxurious. Not too disappointed, because it is close to everything we wanted to see, but definitely would not recommend it!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Morgana Rome
Morgana - great stay!
I'm glad to report the Morgana has completed all of its renovations except very minor ones and we had a very nice stay! Our room was larger than we've had elsewhere in Europe nicely decorated with a comfortable queen size bed, a lovely bathroom, and no noise. Our $209 USD for each of 3 nights in mid-June included a very good breakfast and a trip from the airport. The staff was very helpful. It's only 3 blocks from the train station and the National Museum of Rome and near several nice restaurants. It has a bar and snack service in the hotel as well as an assortment of international newspapers for loan.
Better than expected!
Was expecting renovation due to reviews..but was surprised that the hotel seemed finished when we stayed in June 2004..our room (204) was a triple and was very nicely redecorated with modern theme and the bathroom was beautifully done..the breakfast was more than we expected..fruit, cereal, eggs, bacon and pastries...and the location couldn't be beat on a quiet street close to the train station..also good restaurants on the same street..went with my two college daughters and felt very safe walking to and from train station...
Greatly needs a facelift but staff was very helpful
We stayed here for one night in April. The staff is most courteous. The rooms are cramped at best, and facilities need a facelift -- e.g., wallpaper is peeling from the walls, rooms smell of cigarette smoke. However, the breakfast is good and little restaurant across the street - Giovanni's is divine! Being near the Termini, the neighborhood is run down.
Klaustrofobia, anyone ?
If you have problems with small rooms, dont go here ! Basicly you can walk around the bed and thats it. If you have more than small/intermediate luggage, you are in trouble. No were to put them.
Bath ok. On the other hand the rooms are nicely decorated, small tv minibar ok beds, not comfy but ok. Breakfst more than ok staff is nice and friendly, good location if you arrive late via Termini station.
Stayed 4 night 20-24 March and I could concider comming back but would def look at other options in the 100 euro bracket first.
Convenient location at a good price
When looking to book our hotels in Italy we wanted to be close to the train stations and this hotel was conveniently located. Rate paid at this hotel was affordable. It was clean, but room was very small. I have travelled to Europe and Italy before and am aware rooms abroad are smaller than those in the US. Hotel is currently undergoing construction and while noise from construction was never a problem, access to the elevator was difficult. Public areas of the hotel are attractive and breakfast was very nice. Staff was helpful and friendly.
Due to construction our room was located facing a very busy street and our room was not as quiet as I would have liked. Based on what I was looking for in a hotel, I would definitely stay here again.
Would stay there again for sure.
We stayed at the Morgana Hotel in February 2003 and it was really good.
The room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was great. The fabrics they have used are sumptuous. The Breakfast was just delicious and varied. Staff courteous and attentive and the small bar very handy for a quick refreshment. The location is really good for all the sights and also for shopping and groceries as the station is close by with supermarkets and a little shopping mall. I really couldn't fault it.
They also arranged a car to pick us up from the airport, which was really convenient as our flight got in a little late in the evening.
Also god little restaurants in the area and even very close by in the same street.
Only the location is great
We arrived at this hotel while they are putting in a new elevator. The hotel smelled of dust, was dirty with dust, and was noisy with workmen.
When we checked in there was no water in our room. We were told this would be fixed in about 20 minutes, but we were anxious to get out of the incredibly small room. When we arrived back at the hotel at 11pm there was a bottle of wine in the room with a note apologizing for the inconvenience. We were leaving the next morning so never enjoyed the wine. This hotel is very expensive compared to what you can get at other locations. Its proximity to the termini was the only positive.
O. K Place to stay
We had two rooms at the Morgana, One inside,, which was a great room, quite and peaceful, the outside room was noisy and the street lights could not be blocked out, if you stay here request an inside room. Breakfast was fine and so was the staff service, close to the termini and subway
Above average accommodation
Stayed at Morgana for 4 nights in early November. It was my first trip to Rome and the hotel was booked over the internet. Our standard room was possibly the smallest I've seen but considering we spent all our time out and about enjoying such a wonderful city, this wasn't a problem at all! Our bathroom was also tiny and the water pressure fairly pathetic, but other features made up for it: the room was decorated beautifully with tapestry wall hangings and a huge comfy bed.
Buffet breakfast was varied and delicious. About a 15 minute walk to the colosseum and 40 minutes to Trevi Fountain. The price was affordable and we would stay here again.
I've stayed at the Hotel Morgana on two occasions, once in February 2003 and again in July 2003. The best thing about the hotel is its location. One block from the train station and walking distance to the Coliseum.On my first visit, I had a delightful double room. It was located on the second floor with a comfortable bed, beautiful decor and great tub with shower.On my second visit, I had a triple room on one of the higher floors. The beds were comfortable, but the decor was rather dreary. The bathroom was still very good. Also, there was a heat wave in Rome during July, and the A/C in the room was barely able to keep up.The breakfast on both visits was excellent. I've also found the front desk personnel to be exceptional.Overall, I highly recommend and will stay there again on my next visit to Roma.
