Travel Blogs from Rome
Arrived late 7pm after a long 12 hour flight from Tokyo, caught a minicab into the centre. Saw a few sights on the way then had to psyche ourselves up for the walk from the railway station to our Hotel Romae. Too tired to do much so stayed up to listen to Americas Cup then off to a deep sleep.
Yesterday we took the highspeed train from Venice to Rome. Highspeed meaning that it only took 3 hours instead of 6 like the normal one. This was crucial because with only 2 nights in the famous city we had to maximize our daylight hours!
Upon arrival we booked our tickets for tomorrows train to the airport. Mum reminded me that Rome is …
Having been to Rome before and covered all the big ticket items in 2009, I was keen to add something to this trip that was additional and beyond Rome city centre. Tivoli was the answer. We caught the subway to a bus stop on the outskirts of the city and then bussed for 1 hour to the town of Tivoli which has two main attractions. The first was Villa …
I must be one of the very few who wake up the day after a significant birthday without a hangover! Success! I was determined not to waste the last day in Istanbul with self-induced pain and my notorious post booze blues. So, Wed 11th started in Istanbul with another great breakfast and then a steep stroll to the Grand Bazaar. I hate …
After a very early pick up to get to the airport by 6.50 we began our 2 leg journey to Rome! First we had a flight to Munich (I got frisked going through security and the boys walked straight through) then our flight to Rome. The heat hit us the minute we stepped out of the aircraft! It must have been in the mid 30's. We got the airport bus into …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Romae Rome
Good Budget Hotel!
The Hotel Romae is a short easy walk from the main Rome train station and a welcome sight to the jet lagged. They let us check in about 11am and the room was ready! So was the shower and comfortable bed. The rooms are a reasonable size by Rome budget hotel standards. The rooms and bathrooms were kept very clean. The sights are easily within walkable range. An excellent value for the money.
Incredible value for money
We stayed two nights elsewhere in Rome for the same room rate!!).
Professional, kind and courteous staff. Thank you so much for adding to our wonderful experience of Rome. You can be assured that I will
recommend Hotel Romae to friends and family.
The Romae Hotel as described on various websites seemed charming, and we anticipated comfortable, 'charming' accommodation. Our reaction at first sight of Romae was 'we are definitely not staying here' - a shabby entrance, dirty floor. The entrance is shared by three hotels, and the Romae Reception ('chek-in') is upstairs - nice office, friendly staff but very small, no seats. The Bar, virtually part of Reception, is tiny and was not open during our stay. Our room had three comfortable beds, nice bathroom, but was so dark that even in daylight we had to have the main light on. There was no extractor fan in the bathroom - we asked to have that looked into, and were assured that it would be, but it wasn't.
