Travel Blogs from Rome
We arrived in Rome on a cold Wednesday evening and made our way to the Hotel Rex, a four-star hotel that is a converted villa. It's centrally located and offers friendly service, good food for reasonable prices (starters, pasta, salads, main and water for 15 euros a person) and lovely rooms complete with flatscreen TV and large beds. we had dinner …
... us of the narrow streets and sidewalk restaurants of Venice. Also lots of terracotta and huge amounts of rooftop gardens, hanging gardens, all in masses of green. Most buildings where people live in apartment style, are very old and built around courtyards that are beautifully kept as gardens.
That will do for now, need to get packed and breakfasted ready for our flight to our final holiday spot at Ko Samui in Thailand

... we needed to exit the basillica and turn left. As we exited, we saw thousands of people that weren't there a few minutes ago when we entered! Two hours later we were in the vatican museum and herded like cattle in a meat processing plant. (I thought Frenchie might like that one). We were crammed into hallways of the museum with so many tour groups and people who thought they were in a hurry .... No where to go so frustrations were amplified. We finally managed to ...
... of a whole new Roman tradition.
Walking westward down the busy Via del Tritone, we hooked a left and emerged at the legendary Fontana di Trevi. Located at the convergence of three roads (tre vie), it is often said that throwing a coin will ensure one's future return to Rome. While many people do so, I'd rather spend my coin on gelato, so it remained in my pocket. I have very clear priorities. Travel tip: if you'd like to ...
... some were still skeletons without any leaves and dead looking. Spring was in the air, nature was coming back to life and here I was glued to my window seat watching the scenes go by minute after minute. Well, these minutes after minutes went by fast because without realizing it, here we were two hours later making a short rest stop simply to stretch out or use ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Rex Rome
We booked a double room for relatively low rate, I guess that's why we got a very small room facing nothing but walls. Considering the fact that the hotel is perfectly located very close to the Opera house and facing quiet street even it's just 5~10 minute-walking distance from the Termini train station. Even the staff were friendly and helpful, the air conditioning in our room had a problem at one night. It was fixed next day but at that night we felt cold and could not sleep well.
We stayed at the Rex Dec 15-23rd, we enjoyed the Rex.
The room was large with a king bed, 2 chairs and a table,
the bathroom was all marble and also quite large. The breakfast
was elegant with many choices. The location was close to Termini
we were pleased with the location. We would book again.
The location is the best, 15 minutes walking to colosseum, near piazza Republica and S. Maria Maggiore, metro and bus stops. The room was clean and comfortable, quiet. Very good breakfast (eggs with ham, pastries, fruit). Friendly english speaking receptionist.
The location was the best, on the edge of the historic centre and good metro access to vatican museums north and colloseum to the south.
The front desk staff could not have be nicer and more accomodating.
The room was beautiful and as clean as could be and there are lots of great restaurants in the area - ask the concierge to book something for you. Would highly recomend.
A wonderful hotel and a careful staff. I had a lovely time at the Rex. You will love it!
Excellent experience! Location is about a 5-10 minute walk from Termini. To get to the ruins and the vatican and all that, you'll not want to walk. Instead, see Rome the way the Romans see it...on a Vespa! You can rent one for $40 per day right around the corner from the hotel. Believe me, it's the only way to see Rome. So that makes the slightly-out-of-the-way location of the hotel a moot point. Hotel is gorgeous, obviously recently renovated. I cannot say enough about the staff. They are wonderful. I had an early morning flight out of Rome and the Vespa place wasnt open yet for me to return it, so the hotel guy held onto the keys and said he'd call the rental place when they opened to come and pick it up. That's service! Room was nice and big. comfy bed, strong AC, big big bathroom (ladies will love it), nice strong shower, quiet room. Free internet access (on a public Mac with a slow modem). You will love this hotel.
Good Hotel with great location; April 2004
We stayed at Hotel Rex the 1st and last day of our 2-week trip in Italy. It is only 10 minutes from Termini station, which was extremely convenient to then get to the airport. The hotel is within walking distance of all the major attractions. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel.
Peaceful and friendly oasis in the heart of Rome
We stayed here for 6 nights and can highly recommend it for the following reasons;-It`s a short 10 min walk from the Termini Station, Friendly English speaking staff, a quiet location within walking distance of the Forum and Colosseum. Our room was large, clean and with a en-suite marble bathroom with telephone room service in the bathroom, useful when in the bath. The breakfast room was excellent though small with staff attentive at table. Full English breakfast with plenty of coffee, cereals and large selection of sweet pastries.The only bad point was the lack of hot water at night, our room must of been at the end of the line for hot water.The hotel said they are trying to improve this situation in the future.
After reading the previous review, I had to respond. Our family(inluding children of 11, 9 and 7) stayed at the hotel for 10 days in March of 2003. The staff is indeed wonderful. The small dining area is a fine place to start the day. The rooms were large and accomodated our party of 5 easily. We loved the central location. The access to news journals from around the world was wonderful. All in all, we enjoyed our stay immensely and will come back to Rome and the Rex.
