I wasn't quite sure of what to expect when I fisrt boarded the Boeing 777 from KLM, from Sao Paulo to the funny-named Schimpol, in Amsterdam.
Before anything else, I'll take a couples of libes to talk about the paradox that is life. Some people say that when life gives you lemons you should make a lemonate, right? Or when life gives you …
Forgot to mention the purchase of the train tickets yesterday after lunch. Dad and I stood in line for about 20, then picked up tickets for the 10:30 Eurostar to Florence. From there, we would pick up one of the multitude of trains that passed through Montecatini. The guy told us 10:30, and we figured to be at the train station by 10:15, we'd be …
We hoped we would be in Rome for my birthday! We started it by getting up bright and early, back on the minibus and off to the station to get to the Vatican. (We have got the hang of this now ) knew exactly which station we needed to get to the day started a lot easier. When we got to the Vatican we expected it to me a lot busier, as the previous day when we had been past on the bus tour the queues ...
... It is a bit of a mystery how the Pantheon managed to survive barbarian raids when all the rest of Roman monuments had being shattered. Its turning into a church in 609 has a lot to do with it in later time, but also the structure itself is way ahead of its time. In fact, the exact composition of the material is still unknown and appears to be structurally similar to modern day concrete! Whatever the reasons are, the Pantheon is the only structure of its age and size that ...
... off to Trevi Fountain which was very ornate!!! And CHOC FULL of tourists! Had a look at the fountain and as we were leaving we were given a flyer for restaurant "Fontana di Venere" and taken there. The restaurant was really nice and we had half a carafe of white wine. Pg had spaghetti with salmon and I had grilled chicken with potatoes and salad. On the way back to hotel we stopped for gelato. Very nice day ...

Location, location, location
Just returned from a marvellous long weekend in Rome, staying with my wife and baby son at the above. It was our first trip to Rome and I didn't realise how important the hotel's location was to getting the most out of a trip. The Regina's is spot on and we walked (and pushed) everywhere from here, even across to the Vatican city. Hotel staff very welcoming, room big, clean and comfortable with a good (free) cot and the breakfast was terrific.
I have already recommended the Regina to friends and if you can get a decent rate (we paid less than £150 sterling per night through ebookers), you are off to a good start for your Roman holiday by chosing this hotel.
Can't do better than the Regina.
DO NOT PAY THE PRICE AT THE EXCELSIOR ACROSS THE STREET!!! I've stayed at both, and the Regina is the equal or superior. I was so disappointed at first that I could not obtain a rate at the Excelsior for less than $700/night for September 2004, for five nights. Used this site to review other hotels and found the Regina. The rate was about Euro 235. It was beautifully decorated, (wonderful baths) quiet, clean, welcoming, and fresh. Concierges were excellent, although they do need at least one more on staff at all times. The location was central for us and we walked to many attractions. All restaurant recommendations were excellent. I highly recommend this hotel, and was pleased to find that this chain has many other locations that I will use in the future.
Our travel agent originally booked us into this hotel and then later I changed it when I found out they had a special package deal including breakfast, upgraded room and VIP treatment for only 20 euros more. I had no idea what VIP treatment meant and I chuckled to myself about the concept at first but I was wrong. The hotel is definitely top notch and personnel very friendly. We booked a classic room for our son at a much cheaper rate but they gave him a deluxe room right next to us. This was in the newly renovated area which was very quiet at night--no street noise. On our last day there, they discovered that one out of 2 basins in my son's bathroom had no hotwater and wanted to change him to a new room. We declined but I cannot say that we have ever had that type of offer before. We did not purchase the package for his room but he had the 25 euro breakfast with us and was not charged for it. The breakfast was wonderful and try ordering hot chocolate instead of coffee--it was the best I have ever tasted! Everyafternoon they left fresh fruit and chocolates and with the turn down service another treat. They left us a surprise gift to take home with us on our last night. Try to get one of their package deals and you won't be disappointed.
We just back from Italy and stayed at this hotel. We had a wonderful experience. The hotel was beautiful the location was great and the staff was very friendly. We asked for a room with a better view, and they did with no extra charge, the room was a little larger also. Would stay there again.
Loved this hotel
Luxurious and centrally located on the Via Veneto near the top of the Spanish Steps, this is a beautiful hotel with beautiful furnishings, a kind staff and a terrific breakfast buffet--the best start to a long day of sightseeing. The only drawback was the street noise that continued into the early morning hours, but I doubt there's much that can be done about that. A friend from Rome recommend it, and my husband and I were glad we took her recommendation.
My husband and I spent 10 days at the Regina Hotel Baglioni and it was fabulous. Our room was large by European standards with a very comfortable bed and high quality linens. The bathroom was wall-to-wall marble, with the same high quality linens and bathroom accessories. Our room was very quiet and we rested well each night after hours of sight-seeing. The hotel is convenient to many attractions and a large park is nearby for walks. Breakfast each morning was my husband's favorite part of the hotel with fresh baked pastries, meats, cheeses, fruit and of course wonderful coffee (cafe as the Italian's say). The staff was pleasant and helpful with arranging tours and answering questions. Lastly, the bartender Gabrielle is very entertaining. We would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon in June 2000. We travelled to Paris, Lourdes and Rome. Because this was our honeymoon, we planned for luxurious accommodations. And that is exactly what we got!The lobby, dining room and accommodations are gorgeous, the pictures on the internet do not do this hotel justice. The service was impeccable from every staff member. This hotel is very well kept. This, by far was the best hotel we stayed in on our trip. The continental breakfast consisted of oven fresh rolls, perfect coffee. The hotel is located right across the street from the American Embassy in a very upscale area. Close to fabulous restaurants and shops, but also close to many of Rome's major tourist attractions. My husband and I did quite alot of walking in this neighbohrhood and felt quite safe. From the minute we stepped into the lobby, I knew this hotel was worth the money we spent.
