... Collosseum and forum, also a Capuchin crypt, decorated by the bones of 3700 dead monks!! We have to prepare for our next few days, as we will be on an overnight ferry to Greece and then spend 3 days sailing our own flotillas with a crew of 6!! We are only allowed an overnight bag due to weight restrictions and it's near-impossible!! We've bought some floating beds for our time in Greece, as well as proper towels - the microfibres won't cut it, I don't think! ...
... to a nearby restaurant that Sam spots out & have a really nice dinner. The food was incredibly good and the restaurant was really old fashioned! We love it! Sam has been texting Jo who is out with Angie having dinner nearby. They're heading back to the campsite and decide to wait for us so we can go back all together. We jump in a cab and head to the campsite. We get there and everybody is gathered outside one of the cabins. Everyone is drinking ...
... for a cheap and amazing evening as we talked about our experiences in the city so far and everything else in between. Tonight we are off to the Castel S, Angelo, also known as the Mausoleum of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. It's absolutely beautiful from a distance and I can't wait to finally get a closer look. Anyway, I send you all my love from the eternal city and wish you the best.
... Monument_t o_Vittorio_Emanuele_II). It is a stunning marble building with statues along the front and on the roof. I named it 'The Spectacular Building' :P That night, we went to the Trevi Fountain, which was packed with people! I read that over 3000 euros are thrown in a day! I threw in a coin and wished to return to Italy. I liked the statues of the Trevi Fountain, especially the horses. I like horse statues for some reason. I don't know, maybe it's because ...
... the colosseum and worked out what we wanted to do for dinner. A few days ago we had promised Grant that we would go to McDonald's for dinner on his birthday. Now that push had come to shove, we decided that we would do McDonald's, then do another restaurant in Rome. The restaurant was back in the neighborhood that we had started our night walk at. Neither the metro nor the busses offered the perfect alternative. Boldened by our successful march across Rome, we thought nothing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Panama Garden Rome
Lovey Hotel in a green location
My sister and I just come back to a wonderful stay from Panama Garden in Rome. We were very satistfied of the service, our room was large and very nice. The hotel is situated in a green and safe area near "Villa Borghese". Our room was large with nice view quiet and bright. The breakfast was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful. Nice restaurants in the area and very safe for a walk.
I definitely recommend it to all my friends and family.
What a delight!!
What a delightful hotel!!. I took my mum to Rome for her birthday in January this year. A friend of mine had recommended this hotel as they are a frequent guest. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we were made to feel like royalty. The staff were always very friendly and helpful; they recommended some great restaurants and shops etc. The hotel itself was spotless and the breakfast was fab! Although we went in a cold month it did not stop us getting about and doing all the sights etc. We will definitely be returning to this hotel but next time we will return in the summer.
Hotel was supposed to be central but was not. It cost roughly £8 to get into town which doesn't sound a lot but when you are making that trip 4 times a day it soon adds to your spending money during a 4 day stay.
We had a very pleasant long weekend from 19 nov
-22 nov 04 the staff were most helpful and the
hotel was very much to our liking. Lovely big
I booked a single SUPERIOR room for 2 nights, but I found nothing superior at all in my room, the entire hotel or the surroundings. My room was exactly 7.02 sq mtr, the corridor 1.44 sq mtr and the bathroom also less then 2 sq mtr. You might wonder why I know the exact figures, but I was so suprised by such a small room that I took the exact measurements. It is the smallest hotelroom I saw ever. The furniture was old and worn and the closet contained exactly 1 (!) coat-hanger. Therefore unusable. I used my bath-foam on the first day, and did not get a new bottle for the next night. View from my room into a dead alley with parked cars. Welcome upon check-in not too friendly. Very depressive hotel. Please go to another hotel in this area like Beverly Hills (+), Borromini (++) or Artemide (+++).
We (4 adults / 2 rooms) stayed here in August 2004 after seeing that it was a signature hotel in Thomas Cook's brochure. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. The rooms are very small - with virtually no closet space for clothes. We ended up draping ours over the chair ! The bath was so small it was like bathing in a bucket. The plug on the sink didn't work. The door handle on the bathroom was attached by one screw so that every time you turned the handle it fell off making closing the door whilst using the toilet impossible. The hotel staff were very unhelpful - we asked on the first morning if they could change a fifty euro note into smaller denomiations to be told that they had no cash after clearly observing them counting money only minutes previuosly. We asked them to recommend a restuarant and the one they said was excellent turned out to be closed ! Breakfast was a shambles with everything constantly running out to the point that you had to keep asking for cereal, milk, bread etc.. There was never a table for four laid out so we had to raid cutlery etc., from other unused tables.
MAKE U FEELING HOME!!
An unexpected warm & typical paradise corner right in the centre of a metropole!!! Had a very satisfactory service, great facilities but still quiet and characteristic atmosphere...& staff people are great!!
After reading the reviews we were quite afraid of what to expect at this Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was small for U.S. standards, but was clean. The balcony was bigger then the room, and since we stayed in early June, it was absolutely lovely. Their gardens & eating facilities were excellent. They did have complementary coffee during weekdays but on weekends they do not. We bought a coffee maker for 12 Euros and had coffee whenever we wanted in our room. They kept our rental car in their private garage and graciously retreived it whenever we asked for it. We found the staff incredibly helpful and accommodating! The hotel sits next to a nice park, and also it is not a far walk to catch a downtown bus. Lovely places to eat on that same stroll too. It was quite warm while we stayed and their air conditioning worked great. I was glad that our stay with them was a success.
My husband and I will never stay at this hotel ever again. There were NO tea/coffee facilities in the room,everything had to be ordered via the room service. When the food or drink did eventually arrive after an hour it was cold.....sorry,not cold---FROZEN !! The staff were ignorant & abrupt.The hotel was nowhere near any of the landmarks,even though the hotel website tells you they are. I don't recommend that anyone stays at this hotel,unless you drink yourself into a stupor and remain comatosed for the entire trip !!
We stayed at the hotel in January the room was tiny and freezing cold the heating didn't work whats more the staff didn't care that much they gave us an extra blanket, the wind was whistling through the cracks in the window, the bar looked like a sideboard someone had found in an old shed, but on the positive side the breakfast was fine.
