My experience with British Airways has been quite tarnished by them losing my luggage. They say it is in London somewhere. No one will tell me the odds of it being found and returned to me. I am locked out of my hotel because apparently the front desk is only open until 4pm, and I will probably still have to pay a no show fee.

Here there’s are several Baroque palaces and what looks like a towering Renaissance style ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palladium Palace Rome
Overpriced. I needed a last minute hotel and this is where my driver took me. II asked to be near the Termini because that is usually the cheapest. I haggled the price down to 60Euro and the room was fine, but it is actually not as nice as where I'm staying now for half that price. According to the reading material in the room, my room was actually 220 Euro a night. Waaay too much for the location (Termini) and accommodation. Also, wasn't "palladium" the substance Tony Stark used to create the mini arc reactor for his body?

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Palladium Palace Rome
Fantastic hotel bargain
An outstanding hotel! Very clean and room was wonderful, and the price was 55 Euros per night for a twin bed room, including breakfast. To get the best price, go to the hotel booking office in the train station, which is a 2 minute walk away.
The Staff was so helpful, the room was beautiful, and everything was in walking distance. Excellent Location for those arriving at Roma Termini and those who will use Rome's Metro. Highly Recommended!
We spent three nights at the Palladium in Rome - and yes, the pictures on Expedia do accurately reflect the level of comfort and cleanliness here. It was much better than we had expected. We were fortunate to have a double on the fifth floor with a small balcony from which you could see some of the Santa Maria Maggiore dome. We were within easy walking distance of the Colosseum and Roman Forum, but took the train to the Vatican and walked back. The room had a marble, fully equipped bathroom (with a quaint habit of no shower curtain). The windows were double-glazed, with separate slatted shutters - we often had the windows open, as the noise of Rome adds to the experience. The staff at the hotel were at all times helpful and courteous (it is surprising just how big an influence happy and friendly staff are when you are far from home), and the buffet breakfast kept us going well into the afternoon. Three minutes walk from the hotel is a large basement supermarket, where all foods Italian, including wine, can be purchased at reasonable cost. As somewhat hard-to-please people, we recommend this hotel, and would happily stay there again on our next visit.
Very clean hotel, delux room was immaculate. Staff were friendly and helpful. Surrounding area around the Termini Station not the best at night.
The hotel is very close to the train station, but a far walking distance from major sites. Our room was facing a busy street, so it was noisy at night. Nice bathroom and room. Close to grocery store.
This is a convenient location and the hotel was priced very reasonable. Overall a very good value. We took the whole family and had no complaints.
Great Price and Service
Great central location near the train station, comfortable room, and friendly, competent service combined with a bargain price make this a winner.
The hotel was wonderfull as were the staff, I would reccomand you to stay there especially in the deluxe room
