Travel Blogs from Rome
We wake tired, but ready for a full day. Today we see the Colosseum, which Parker has been talking about for 3 weeks. His excitement is contagious and he can barely eat his buffet (!!!) because we need to get there.
Our new friends told us to go to the Roman runis first, see them and buy the joint tickets. As we walk the ruins, Alex …
So, we wake way too early. Parker and I make our way to buffet (included) and Alex says he will meet us. Lovely spread, but I can only manage a plain yoghurt. Parker does us all proud and ate enough for the three of us. Mostly DELTA crew at the hotel. Pilots and stewardesses every where.
We rush to the METRO because we hear the crowds are …
We took a train from Bologna to Roma. Once at the huge train station, I convinced kids to take Metro since hotel was to be close by. We got our train passes and off we went to exit in the middle of a vast and gorgeous park. Although I found it beautiful, the kids were less than enthoused with our exit.
We promptly hailed a taxi who drove …
I wasn't at all prepared for the con artists we came across in Rome! Such a beautiful city with lots of history. We went to the Colosseum, Ancient Runes, Vatican City, Explored the Boutique shops and restaurants. We even managed to fit in a Valentines Day dinner at "Harrys" Restaurant to the stars. This restaurant was filled with black and white …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Savoy Rome
First impressions at reception were not great. It is very tatty and we were not made to feel very welcome at all. Lift up to our room was more like a service elevator. Arriving in our room was probably the worst experience of our 2 week holiday (in which we stayed in 5 hotels). Decor could only be described as grim. Wallpaper was peeling, standard was more a travel lodge than a 4 star hotel. V small window that was partially covered by a thick drape that could not be moved-v little natural light could get in and the room felt v claustraphobic. Bathroom was clean and fairly large-definitely the best part (though still the least nice bathroom of any of the hotels on our stay). To avoid our 4 days in rome being ruined, we immediately went out to an internet cafe and booked a 5 star (Hotel Splendide) for the next night at about the same price as we were paying at the Savoy-and a world apart in standard. I had never changed hotel before during a trip but am v relieved that i did here.
We stayed at this hotel during easter, and were very dissapointed. The bedding was old, wouldn't touch the blankets. The room was very dim, and old cheap furniture. The bathroom was the only nice thing about the room. The location was excellent, but for the price we paid this hotel did not live up to our expectations.
Good Hotel and location
We have just come back from a week in Rome from 26th May. The hotel has a great location with easy walking distance to most of the tourist spots. About 10 mins walk to the trevi fountain and the spanish steps, although there is a taxi rank right next to the hotel. Also outside the hotel is a pick up point for the tour bus, which is also very convienient. There are many resturants along the via veneto. The hotel is clean , we had a triple and a double room and have no complaints. When I return to Rome I would certainly stay there again.
This was a very good choice!
We stayed at the Hotel Savoy March 5th, 2004 for four nights. Had two nice doubles on 4th Floor facing main street. We heard some late traffic noise on weekend nights, and the morning sanitation trucks of a busy city, but otherwise slept soundly. Bathrooms are excellent and clean. Fresh linens. Had nonsmoking rooms, wonderful. Charming hallways. Great breakfast buffet with eggs and bacon. Delta Airlines uses this hotel for their crew. Only drawback for us was that we could not get coffee until about 730am. Several cafes along Via Veneto, decent prices, eat in glassed in venues on the sidewalks. There's a cheap Italian restaurant down the Via Veneto across from Barberini Metro stop. Ate there twice. Only a 5 minute cab ride to train station, too. Would stay here again for sure.
Stayed on this hotel 12. to 15. of march 2004. Excellent location, clean room, nice bathroom, good breakfast and excellent service. Good rate from Hotels.com (Eur 180 pr. night incl breakfast) My wife and I loved this hotel - will stay here again. Fantastic hotel in a fantastic city.
We were on our honeymoon in Italy in December and we stayed at the Savoy. I liked the hotel a lot. It was in a great location with restaurants with in walking distance. If you do not mind a 15 or 20 minute walk everything is within walking distance. The service and rooms were great. The continental breakfast was average but there was plenty to choose from. I would advise anyone who wants to stay in a nice hotel to stay here.
This hotel has a great location about a 10 minute walk downhill to the Spanish Steps. Near some nice cafes and restaurants. Only problem was the noise from passing traffic. We were in a room to the front of the hotel and were woken about 7'ish each morning with the bustling traffic. Nighttime traffic was also a problem as the Italians are very heavy handed on the car horn. But on the plus side it?s just up the road from the Eden Hotel which has a rooftop bar with panoramic views over Rome, well worth a visit for a drink if you can't afford to stay!!
First Rate Hotel
The Savoy was first-rate, even during the blackout that occurred on 9/28/03; the staff was wonderful and could not have been kinder or more accommodating. I judge a hotel by iits cleanliness and its linens, both bed and bath linens -- our bed linens were changed daily and were crisp and clean. The bath linens were wonderful soft huge bathsheets -- the greatest! Our room was small but extremely comfortable and inviting -- very nicely appointed, with in-room safe (which is always a plus).
Service was top-notch. Would highly recommend the Savoy. It's centrally located for walking tours, wonderful restaurants nearby, and next-door to the American Embassy (for the Americans traveling to Rome).
Nice area, close to the zoo & spanish steps
We booked this hotel through Hotels for about $235 euro per night. Hotels said children under 8 were free. When we arrived we were asked to pay an additional $60 euro per night for our 6 year old. Our room was on the 4th floor where there was some remodeling/painting taking place. The Savoy is located in a very nice area. Close to the Spanish Steps, the largest McDonalds, and the Hard Rock Cafe.
Great location & Staff!
Had a wonderful stay at Hotel Savoy. Enjoyed the location and the staff was very friendly!
