Travel Blogs from Rome
We had a much earlier start today, and breakfast was not very impressive. I didn't even write down what it was! I think we had coffee and yogurt. Either way, it was looking to be another sunny day!
We took a different metro towards the Vatican and upon arrival, easily bypassed a long line snaking its way to the entrance of the museum. A …
To Roma! Weather is, once again, perfect. Breakfast at our hotel: coffee, juice, yogurt, croissant and Nutella. I should just start copying and pasting that sentence.
Due to some kind of regulation on driving hours logged, Rony was required to stay in Florence with the coach until 1pm that afternoon. Therefore, we had to use a different …

Yesterday we had a short drive to Rome, where after checking into our hotel, we were off via the Metro to the Colosseum. We met up with Francesca, a local guide, who brought to life past and present Rome. There was some rain at the Colosseum but still got all the information and saw all the sites especially …
We were out of the hotel by 7:50 to take the Metro to the Vatican Museums. When we got there, we soon learned that there had been a power outage in the Vatican, so no one was able to go inside yet, regardless of reservation time. We waited in line for maybe twenty minutes before Reid decided to switch our morning and afternoon activities. So …
It was, of course, raining when we left Florence this morning. I used to have pretty good travel karma, but this trip has been pretty **** weather-wise.
Because of EU regulations, Rene now has to have 48 hours off without driving passengers. As a result, we had a different bus (far less leg room) and an Italian driver. And he drove …

Historical Traveler Reviews Nardizzi Americana Rome
nice rooms , but real shoeboxes. smaller than most other places in italy. but very clean, good breakfast. the decor is nice, venican plaster walls., very cool. top floor hotel, one flight above the Oceana hotel.
Good stay conveniently located.
Very tasteful rooms within walking distance with luggage from the train station, and for seeing the ruins and Spanish steps. Helpful staff. Air conditioning. Minimal breakfast. Great value and location. There are elevators, but we found ourselves climbing lots of stairs to avoid them. Discount for cash. We'd stay here again.
We stayed for 5 nights from the 15th September 2004. We found the hotel to be nothing short of fantastic.
Lovely hotel! My fiance and I stayed there in March 2004. Everything was good, clean private bathroom, clean room, nice hardwood floors, TV, etc. Except the main part of the hotel is on the top floor & because we had a private bath we were on a lower floor with a security door. Nothing bad about having a security door, except it made soooo much noise when people came in and out. Hard at night with people going in and out. I would recomend it to people on a budget that want something a little nicer but don't want to break the bank. Good for young couples or recent grads!
Just what are the others on about?
I do not know what the other reviewers are on about!
This hotel was fantastic, the staff very freindly and helpful.
Breakfast was great, the air con worked a treat, so well we had to turn it off! and yes, it was very hot (33 in the shade).
Room was VERY clean.
Hotel is in a nice position in the city, for all attractions.
Less than 10 Euros in a taxi (ordered by reception) gets you anywhere in the city, including the Vatican.
Try speaking a little of the lingo, it works wonders with the staff!!
All in all highly reccomended.
A great hotel!
I have just returned from Rome with two of my friends and we all found the Nardizzi Americana to be a great hotel! It is conveniently located near to Repubblica Metro stop and is within walking distance of all the main sights, except the Vatican which is only five stops on line A! The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and were brilliant at providing information on attractions! When you check in you are shown on a map exactly how to get to everything by public transport and by walking and they are willing to help you find out anything you need to know! The breakfast is small but enjoyable, although the coffee was cold one morning! and the hotel has a lovely terrace to sit and enjoy a bottle of wine on! The rooms are immaculate and comfortable.
My husband and I just returned from a two night stay at the Hotel Nardizzi Americana (June 2004). The hotel was clean - nice rooms, average size, updated bathrooms.
I'm not sure what the other two reviewers are talking about on this one because this is a lovely hotel. Sure, it isn't exactly "high class", but staying at this hotel was a wonderful experience for me. Everyone was incredibly kind and the room we stayed in was absolutely beautiful.
This hotel will help your vacation seem an adventure, and I plan to stay there again when I return to Rome this year.
Our family stayed three nights during a heat wave in June 2002.
Although I agree that the location is convenient if travelling by train, the air conditioning in the hotel was essentially non-functional. I might stay there again in a non-summer month, but never again in the heat.
Stayed for three nights in mid January, 2003. had trouble finding the hotel as it is situated on the forth floor of a building and the only indication was a small brass plate on the street. Having accessed the ground floor hallway we had a choice of the elevator or long stairs. The only drawback is that the elevator will only take 3 people max. without luggage. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean and functional. The hotel is situated close to Republica and is an ideal location for exploring the city using bus, metro or walking. It is located opposite the Department of Justice so you have the added advantage of 24hr police presence. Breakfast is to be avoided but at the prices we paid this was not a problem. Suitable eating places 30 sec walk. I have given this establishment an average score overall but for those seeking no frills accomadation I would highily recommend it. If running on a budget I would use this hotel again but on my next visit I intend to spoil myself a bit.
