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

... is the same place they took bookings for tours to Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. So there were people everywhere. This was this first city travel card we had to actually picked up, the rest of the city cards (London, Dublin and Paris) sent them to us, which was clean and simple. For some reason the Rome Card, they didn't. So don't know which bright smart runs this company but they are doing it wrong.o So began a very ...
... is a 2,000 year old building that was a venue for entertaining the population of the city and one of the landmarks everyone thinks about when you mention Rome. It was the place to see gladiators fight to the death and accommodated 50,000 screaming fans. After the Colosseum we continued to Palatine Hill and the Forum which was considered the center of the city. We had a different guide for the second part of the tour and his enthusiasm ...
We woke up around 9AM and did the normal breakfast routine at Ricks Café. Then we took the subway to Piazza Popolo. The we walked on Via del Corso through different shopping stores (obviously Dilyara arranged this day). As she shopped in the clothes stores, I raced buses recklessly on the IPad. Unfortunately, Dilyara never went to the shoe stores, so I always had some competition on finding a comfortable seat in the shops.
We then went to Hard Rock Café for lunch. We had ...
... statues. This basilica is the first church ever built in Rome. It was built by Constantine (300s AD) and soon after he realized that christians continued to visit St Peter's grave so he built the massive one in what is now Vatican City.
For our last meal in Rome... We went to a familiar and delicious resaraunt and this time I had camera batteries. We had tuna and prawns with pistachios over spaghetti with a light olive oil sauce.
And sea bass ...
2 blocks over is the Piazza Navona, famous for its Fountain of the Four Rives, built by the prolific sculpter Bernini in 1651. It shows the personifications on the Gangees, Nile, Danube and Platte rivers. Its definitely quality work and even though its made of stone it seems to have so much movement in it.
Next stop was the Trevi Fountain, which was absolutely packed with people as we expected. Elbowed our way through the crowds ...
