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!
A Wonderful Stay
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

... normally you can exit towards St Peters but because it was closed, we had to go back through the Museums and this took 30 minutes, particularly slow was the large crowd leaving the Sistine Chapel itself which had to squeeze through one very small door. Organisation is certainly not a strong point of the Italians. There are also a lot more "opportunities to purchase" along the way through the museum that weren't there before. Although ...
... on a quite square but on entering one is struck by the width of the aisle & the shallow arching of the ceiling. Its main point of interest is the statue of Moses by Michelangelo on a papal tomb but it also has other fine works & houses the chains of St Peter. All in all a lovely example of fine Roman architecture from the Renaissance.
In contrast St Clements appears to be much older being built in a Romanesque style strongly influenced by ...
... in the world!'. As we left, we passed the old-fashioned toy shop at the end of the piazza, withthe most fabulous window displays of multi-headed dragons, fairies and leprechauns, sea creatures, and soft animals from the arctic, including a huge polar bear. Lovely! Just around the corner yuan see into the open end of a building, down to the remains of Domitian's stadium, on which Piazza Navona is based. The general size and shape of the stadium is reflected in today's ...
... were with takes 2 hours to go through it, but we did the smallest city in the world in less than 30 minutes. Probably set some world records on this day. It really felt like we were on "The Amazing Race" or something. My body hasn't had such a workout in a very long time. The Sistine Chapel was dark and cool and the floor was jam packed with people. I wish that I had more time to admire it, but it was a gorgeous sight indeed. We looked at it and soaked up the ambiance for about 2 ...
... I get lost (story later). I explored the immediate area for about an hour, visited a church, crashed a wedding and stumbled upon the Forum - a major landmark of ruins here.
Per my agenda, I jumped on a double-decker hop-on/hop-off bus so I could get my bearings and start understanding the map better. We drove by all the main sites like the Vatican and the Colloseum. I jumped off at Fontana di Trevi and spend a while people watching around ...
