Travel Blogs from Rome
We docked in Athens at 5am - our cabin was right at the front so we heard all the bow-thrust noises every time we came into or left port. Breakfast was from 5.45am and there were queues by that time. We were told we had to be disembarked by 7.30 so the cleaning could begin for the next cruise. Last night our bags were to be packed and waiting …
... Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel. We did a tour of the St Peters Basilica. The tour of St Peter's Basilica was stunning and the lady who did the tour was awesome, I never knew the kids could be so quiet for so long, they were mesmerised. After that we went through the Vatican museum which culminated in the Sistine Chapel. The Sistine Chapel was magnificent, it really was some thing special, awesome, even the kids were appreciative of ...
... to Trevi Fountain and had gelato. Hung around there for awhile dousing ourselves with water. Matthew tossed a coin, actually several coins, into the fountain, guaranteeing he'll be back to Rome. We then headed back. Stopped for a good pasta lunch on Via Corso. We got back very thirsty. Problem in Rome is that everything ...

After another breakfast of crossiants and coffee we were soon off to Vatican City. Vatican City is actually its own country covering a small area in Rome. They have their own police force, post office, radio station, and buses. First stop in this small nation was the Vatican Museum. The museum is visited by 50,000 people per day and has over four miles of exhibits. It's very overwhelming to say the least. Add on top ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Regno Rome
Fantastic location and excellent staff throughout.
Very convenient location, rooms large and spotlessly clean. Towels changed every day and complimentary soft drinks during the day. Good selection for breakfast. Very quiet hotel considering on a very main road. Have been to Rome before but by far this was the best hotel all round.
We took 2 adjoining rooms in this hotel during the last week of July 03 and can advise that it was fantastic. The room and bathroom were good size and had all necessary features incl, room safe and air-con. The location is excellent as most central Roman sites are within walking distance. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. The only downside was the lack of variety / choice available at breakfast. When I return to Rome this would be number one location.
Friendly people, Great Room, Great location
We spent 2 wonderful nights in a room with a tiny roof top terrace. The staff was very helpful and the hotel is right in the middle of the historic area. Enjoy!
ROTTEN REGNO - RUDE STAFF ARE US!!
Our room was adequate, a bit small with a view over the interior of the hotel which was very uninspiring. Unfortunatley the hotel was having some renovation work we we arrived. This should have been no problem as it is illegal to start work before 10am, when we would already be awake. The work started at 7am every morning! The noise was spectacular, deafening and relentless.
The staff washed their hands of us. The staff refused to listen to us and refused to accept there was any problem. The manager was downright rude and suddenly nobody could speak English!
I have never been treated in such an appauling manner by a hotel. I advise you never to stay there, even though the location is convenient.
I stayed at the Hotel Regno with a group of ladies and we were 100% thrilled. The central location is worth *any* price, but the hotel itself is simply lovely. It's a typical small European hotel - rooms are not huge but adequate in size. The breakfast is served in a series of quaint rooms. Food is very good and plentiful. The staff was superb - friendly, helpful and eager to please. The hotel is located on a very busy and noisy street, but the soundproofed windows were exceptional. No issues with noise at all. Considering the "just-above-moderate-price," I will recommend this hotel to anyone going to Rome.
For little people only
Booked into the Regno Hotel, Rome on our travel agents advice. Ok the location was excellent - right in the heart of things. The room however was tiny - the bed for two average height adults was barely bigger than a slightly large single bed (no exaggeration). The bathroom was about 1metre x 1 metre. The shower leaked all over the floor despite us trying every manouvre. The noise was terrible and the hotel staff fairly disinterested. If you were a single person looking to be in the centre of Rome and don't mind a bit of noise - perfect. For a couple - no way. We checked out the next day and found alternative accomodation.
Loved the Regno
We just got back from our stay in Italy and we couldn't believe our luck. The Regno is clean, the breakfast is ample and the staff are very helpful and courteous. The location can't be beat - about 2 blocks from the Trevi Fountain and 3 blocks to the Pantheon. It's also located on one of Rome's busiest shopping districts, so there is instant access to buses, shops and restaurants. We loved this hotel and were thankful for its convenient location every time we ended our 10-hour walking days! I'd recommend it to anyone, definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
2nd time at Regno
I'm back from my second trip to the Regno. All the construction is done. Very clean; beautiful rooftop views; superb staff. This is my 8th trip to Rome and the Regno reigns.
They even emailed me a New Year's e-card!
In April 2001. Stayed on 3rd Floor with window overlooking pedestrian walkway. Room was small. The bed was enclosed by wall on three sides but was firm and comfortable. Respectable bathroom.
Best thing about the hotel was the staff. Very friendly and helpful. Second best thing is the location. You can walk to everything. Spanish steps, Fountain of Trevi, Pantheon all with several easy to walk blocks. Nice inexpensive lunch place just outside the front door to the right.
Going back in a month.
