... amazing. To finish off the evening we decided to go to the Trevi fountain and Spanish Steps. The Trevi Fountain was very crowded and the Spanish Steps very underwhelming. However we did throw a coin over our left shoulder into the fountain meaning that one day we will both returned to Italy. We had a great day today with Susan, Annie and Kirsty. We were home by about midnight. Was a very long ...
I realized a couple days ago that I'm ready to move on, to different sights, smaller cities, new experiences. Today, I headed out just wanting to wander through some of my favorite areas on my last day in Rome. Plus I was still looking for that bag—ha!
I took some pictures of the things I see every day—nothing exciting—like Via di Santa Dorotea and Via di Ponte Sisto that I walk down to get to "my" bridge, Piazza Trilussa ...
... the clothes.
We sat outside at a café at the Piazza del Popolo square for a little snack, enjoying the sun and warmth. I was trying to carry on but I needed a pharmacy. John did not want me to tell the pharmacist my true symptoms because he was afraid they would not give me Codeine cough medicine. I figured they didn’t sell that over the counter anyway. The pharmacist was very helpful ...
... ate her fries.
I finished my burger and then took a bite of her patty. It tasted quite strange and did not have exactly the same texture as a meat patty. The only resemblance it had to being a meat patty, was that it tasted a little burned. I told her that I did not think it was meat, but she said it was. We then turned to who would know best….Google.
Google told us it was in fact a vegetarian patty; however, DIlyara was scarred from the traumatic event ...
... come by bus & train. We had quite a time to wait for the bus so we had a welcome coffee in a little cafe nearby, took the bus the 12k to Christofo Colombo station at the southern end of the line & caught the train for the 50min journey into the terminus at the Pyramid station. He then took us to the post office where it took about 40 minutes to send a 3kg parcel of books to home. Having farewelled & thanked Gian Carlo we walked down to the Tiber ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mozart Rome
Mozart Misses Mark
Other reviewers are not talking about the hotel I stayed in. Paid a large sum for a 'deluxe' room which didn't look at all like their internet room pictures, and was missing soap, clock, and extra pillows. We found the desk staff distant. The location is good only for shopaholics. Noisy area of Rome packed with Spanish Steps tourists. Rooms at back reasonably quiet. Taxis do not have easy access to the hotel which is is a partially blocked side street. Included breakfast is good and 'free' internet is welcome, if you can get on the one terminal provided.
Overpriced but nice
Stayed at the hotel Mozart in September 2003 for 2 weekends. Got a regular room for a special 'discounted' last minute price, which was still quite high based on the hotel's rating. Hotel is perfectly located -- we could walk practically everywhere. The roof terrace was great!!! Breakfast was ok for Italian standards. During the first weekend our standard room was a normal size, however during the second weekend, it was tiny. Also, the showers in both rooms were extremely small and inconvenient. Get a deluxe room if you can afford it.
We stayed at the Hotel Mozart because of the consistency of the rave reviews on your site compared with other hotels in Rome, within the moderate price range category we were trying to focus in on. We were not at all disappointed and agreed with all the past reviews we'd read. While other hotels may have beautiful lobbies or exteriors (e.g., the Raphael) the reviews for those other hotels (at least for the moderately priced rooms) were mixed based on the actual rooms/service received and/or were priced significantly above the 200 Euros per night we spent on the best room at the Mozart. At the Mozart, the rooms were quite comfortable and large, the service/friendliness could not be beat, and the rooftop terrace/bar had absolutely spectacular views. On our last trip to Rome we stayed at the Scalinata di Spagna, which is also charming and the rooms perhaps more ornate, but the Mozart was much less expensive, better located, the rooftop garden much lovelier, the breakfast better, and the service much more attentive. In short, we were delighted with the Mozart and would absolutely stay there again...
Enjoyed our stay
We enjoyed our stay and glad we asked for a deluxe room with a terrace. (Thank you trip advisor) We were on the 4th floor but ask for the 5th which seemed to have even bigger terraces. Peaked into some of the standard rooms and they seemed small but equally well furnished. Management was helpful; location great; comfortable lobby; would stay there again.
Mozart is Excellent
The Hotel Mozart was wonderful! Found it on the website (unfortunately did not know about Trip Advisor then) and loved it. Excellent location and the rooms clean, large, air-conditioned, and comfortable. Highly recommended.
The Mozart is close to the Spanish Steps and within easy walking distance to many piazzas and the metro (which will easily take you to the main train station or the vatican). The hotel is beautifully furnished, and they provide a lovely "entertainment room" in which you can use their free internet or read the newspaper (they provide several international ones). The bedrooms are small, but clean, comfortable and well-furnished. The bathrooms are lined w/marble, but the showers are small and water leaks out. The breakfast (included) was great (one of the better ones on our trip)! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay, and would use them again. To get a cheaper rate, you can book the hotel 7 or less days before your stay for a 10-40% discount (worth it if you're not going during a busy time.)
Mozart in Tune
Found the Mozart on the internet, but got a good deal direct from the hotel.Was impressed by many positive reviews on various websites.Although only a***,it was far superior to many **** Rome hotels that we've stayed in. Comfortable, clean and very quiet;staff personable and helpful-recomended us to local inexpensive restaurants-but it's major attribute is its location. Every attraction within minutes from the front door either on foot or by Metro( 2 mins. walk). Could possibly have been a little cheaper (paid 180 euros a night for de-luxe room) but taking into account the breakfast(which is included) is so good we didn't need to take a lunch, the roof terrace, the helpful staff, and the excellent location, it was well worth it. We'll be back.
Stayed at the Hotel Mozart Sep 30 through Oct 2, 2002. We had a deluxe room, room 502. This was a fantastic room with a private patio off double doors. Very large room with a comfortable king-sized bed. Hotel was very nice, with a small, friendly staff. Breakfast included was also very nice, with assortment of meats, cheeses, sweet rolls, fruit, juices, coffees, etc. Very nice common room with free internet access (high speed). Hotel is located near Spanish Steps, on the Via Del Corso, which is a shopping street closed to traffic. Our room was very quiet, with beautiful rooftop views toward the Villa Medici and Trinita Dei Monti. I would definitely book the same room on a return visit to Rome. I would highly recommend this Hotel. Karen Brown recommends the Scalinata di Spagna as a wonderful hotel. After staying at both, I can say that the Scalinata is a dump by comparison, as is the Hotel Eliseo.
