... we thought we should vote, which we did. All we needed to do was post them. That sounds easy but ... this morning the main Rome Poste was closed so we went back on the way to our hotel after lunch. There were 10 counters, 5 of which were working, 1 of which was selling stamps. It took an hour plus to buy two stamps for the postal votes and 4 for postcards...... Any wonder the place is in trouble and the cost was over the top.
... and along the bridge are vendors and street performers doing their levitating acts for donations.
I take Chuck and Pat for a walk down a street I know very well. We pass by "La Scuola di Leonardo Da Vinci" where I studied Italian for 4 weeks back in 2005. I learned my way around Rome pretty well during that time. This street leads us past Piazza Navona a huge circular piazza which was once used for chariot races. Today it's the ...
... it weren’t for my overwhelming hunger I could have stayed there for another couple hours and been completely happy. But I still hadn’t eaten today, for good reason, and it was almost 3pm. What was the good reason you ask? How does a 15-course, appetizer to desert, meal accompanied by as much wine as we desired sound? If you’re not drooling, you should be. Little pizzas and salad started it off, followed by rice with ...
... selection was going to be restricted to pasta, pizza and pasta! The dishes for the region include pastas with truffles, porchino mushrooms or wild boar. I stuck with the porcini dish and no one was adventurous enough to try the others. Dinner ended with Chloe choosing a cake from the bakery next door. It was an excellent bakery and she made an excellent choice. I can't remember the name of the cake but is was something between ice cream and ...

I attempted on 3 occasions to go out and explore but found it better to go ahead and rest in my room for the evening, which was accentuated by a skype call from my brother.
At ten at night, the sun was still high in the sky and I had a problem falling asleep but travel days can be hectic and this one was no exception. In fact, I would have several days ahead of me to enjoy whatever delights I could find ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Saint John Rome
The hotel was immaculate despite there being some building work going on although the position of our room meant we couldn't hear anything.
The hotel was half way between the colliseum and the main train station with a metro station a 5 minute walk away which meant it was easy to get around ... although be careful as the trains seemed to stop quite early.
Be prepared to be awakened by kids on the playground next door at 8 AM EVERYDAY. Also, the hotel is NOT SAFE. We returned from sight seeing only to find our hotel room door WIDE OPEN. Romona at the front desk did not seem to care about this matter at all when we complained!!!!
We booked this hotel because in all the internet search engines for hotel with a pool, this hotel appears as having that facility and we were happy to pay a little extra for this. We thought after a long day's sightseeing, a dip in a pool would be most welcome. The hotel's own brochure says "we shall be pleased to satisfy all possible requests which our guests might have offering services such as laundry, garage, indoor pool and fitness centre.........". This hotel DOES NOT HAVE A POOL. The staff direct you to the local fitness centre next door at an extra cost of ten euros a day or five days for thirty euros. The centre isn't open on a Sunday!
On the positive side the hotel is nicely decorated and because it is relatively new everything still looks modern and in good condition. That's it on the positive though.
We stayed here for three nights. The location is good, if you are reasonably fit, you can walk to the Colosseum in 10 minutes and then on to the other sights. Otherwise bus and tram are 100m at the bottom of the road. The metro is about 5 minutes.
Prime Hotel St John Rome, Not as it seems in pictures
On the website and any other pictures around their is a lovely picture of a beautiful open courtyard. Unfortunately this has nothing whatsoever to do with the hotel but is a school playground which you can see out of some of the windows.
6 of us spent half an hour stuck in the lift, when they got us out and we'd had to jump about three feet on to the floor below, instead of apologising and treating us well, they shouted at us that there should only be four people in the lift. Nowhere does it tell you how many people can go into the lift and on the day we arrived the porter took four of us up in it.
The lovely swimming pool that is pictured costs an extra 10 euros per person to use which again is not indicated anywhere.
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The main station Manzoni which is a 2min walk is being refurbished so the next station St Giovanni is a 7minute walk from the hotel. Which still wasnt a problem, as bus/tram terminal is a very short walk up the road. I would say the location of this hotel is excellent. The Colloseum is a 7-10min walk. The hotel itself is new/modern amenities and clean, rooms a little on the small side, but the bathroom is great. Staff are very helpful. And there are plenty of restuarants and snack bars around the hotel. I would definately stay at this hotel again. Its two stops from the main Termini station and everything is close by. Building work didnt commence till around 10am. Which didnt bother us. Note~ there are no indoor leisure facilities, rather you pay €10 and use the facilities in the leisure centre next door (not worth it).
Das neue 4-Sterne-Hotel befindet sich im Herzen der Ewigen Stadt - innerhalb der alten Stadtmauern, es ist im modernen Design ausgestattet und bietet einen professionellen und freundlichen Service. Die 83 Zimmer verteilen sich auf 4 Etagen. Zur unserer Reisezeit war das Hotel noch nicht ganz fertig gestellt, aber das störte uns nicht weiter, denn wir hatten dadurch keine Beeinträchtigungen. Das Frühstück ist für römische Verhältnisse wunderbar.
just returned from Rome and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is still under construction and builders do start work at 8am! however this didnt really bother us as we were up early and out sight seeing. Breakfast was ok, staff were very friendly and polite. Rooms were small but very modern, clean and the bathroom was very well presented. The leisure facilities on site are not ready but you can purchase a guest pass for 1 day for 10 euros to use at the leisure centre next door. rather pricey if you only want to use the pool! didnt really make use fo this facility so cannot comment on how good it was. Hotel is in a good location, the colosseum is only a 7 min walk. the hotel is situated on a side street which looks rather dody and nothing like the website picture but it was safe and did not encounter any problems when returning to the hotel late at night. Metro station is also a 5 min walk which is handy.
This hotel is still being built -so the building works do wake you up earlyif you sleep light.
Breakfast is OK and the completed public spaces are looking good. I was hereon business so the general upheval within the hotel was not really bothersome. However had I been on holiday I would have been less than happy.
In a couple of months I am sure this will be a much better place to stay.
None of the leisure facilities are available and it is not well known hotel yet by the local taxi drivers - so take a map to point at!
