Today is the start of my exciting day aboard the 17.7 m 1930's historical cutter ship. I went to the harbour early in the morning and was introduced to the captain and some of the crew most of who were also volunteers. The goal for our day was to save a dolphin, tag and release it, also to get a small sample of blood from the dolphin to go towards …
Today is my last day before my volunteer work, I'm not sure how to feel about it. I have a early start visiting the catacombs of Rome then my plane trip home. I firstly met my guide at Piazza Barberini in central Rome,
and strolled to the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione to discover the
Capuchin Crypts. We began by entering the crypt …
Today is my last full day so I am making the most of it! My visit today is to one of Rome's most famous mountains. First I met my guide at Piazza del Popolo and then jumped aboard my luxury, air-conditioned coach for my journey south to Italy's Campania region. As I was travelling, my guide was keeping me entertained with tales about the region, …
Today I was pleased to wake up and be expecting my private tour to the Colosseum today! My three-hour private walking tour began atop the Colle Oppio with a beautiful panoramic view of the Roman Forum and Colosseum, Rome's most recognizable landmark. From here I was able to skip the long lines with special access to the Colosseum how awesome!
On day one I started at St Peters and climbed its dome for my first view over the Eternal City it is absolutely stunning and the amount of ancient remarks to see was exceptional. I then visited the incredible wealth of the Vatican Museums this is where you can see the history of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel. If you take a large school …

The hotel is in a rather quiet neighbourhood that is only about a 10 minute walk to the Colosseum which suited my stay as a travel agent. The front desk was very helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean and well kept, and the breakfast buffet was very good. The beds were very comfortable, they give you two pillows which, for me, was a definite plus, and the only drawback I had were that the showers were rather small. However, water pressure was fabulous.

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!
