La Dolce Vita

Wednesday morning, we slept in. After breakfast at the hotel, we took our favorite bus - the 116 all the way to the Villa Borghese for our 11AM appointment to see the Borghese Gallery.

We really enjoyed the Borghese Gallery. It's a beautiful museum that is easy to tour, and crowds are controlled through their 2 hour reservation system. It' …

Holy Rome - Vatican City

A travel blog entry by corben

Before the trip, I had reserved Vatican Museum tickets for 8AM. According to their website, the museum doesn't open until 8:30 so I was wondering whether we would be able to go in at 8. In any case, we got up early and arrived at the museum entrance at 7:45. There were already lines - both for those with advance tickets and those needing to buy …

Ancient Rome

We arrived in Rome feeling refreshed from our long night train. What a difference going from small town, medieval Rothenburg to big, loud and crowded Rome!

We dropped off our luggage at our hotel and headed out to see ancient Rome. Unlike our previous hotels, our hotel in Rome was modern, sterile and plain, yet it was clean and functional …

When in Rome

... around in circles we made the decision just to return the car and catch a taxi back to the apartment. Although we had a ridiculous amount of luggage, we agreed it would be the best solution. Ha, I don't know if it was the best solution but it was certainly interesting. So next thing we know we were driving through the city of Rome. I mean OMG, we drove past the Capitol museum with its mighty statues, and then past The Roman Forum and another five or so ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Smeraldo Hotel Rome

    Very Rome! Loved It!

    from

    I just returned from my trip and had a fantastic time! I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Smeraldo. The location is more than perfect! If you want to be within walking distance from all attractions and stay at a nice place then I would highly recommend this hotel. I took this vacation with my boyfriend and he agrees too. I had a double room and in my opinion it was an good size, very clean, and marbled bathrooms. The bathrooms are small but very cute. We walked just about everywhere and the walks were very enjoyable. We walked to the trevi, spanish steps, piazza navona, pantheon, even the vatican. There were more sights within walking distance but basically just go and explore Rome! The area of this Hotel is so very Roman. It has tons of character and you real experience Italy at its best. The only thing about Hotel Smeraldo you should be aware is that the staff has this "rush rush" personality. Some, not all, seem to be busy and are quick with their responses-but hey nothing is perfect. The price is good, especially during November, we just payed 85 euros-that's good!

    Highly Recommend the Smeraldo

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Smeraldo for four days while in Rome. I had done quite a bit of research on Rome hotels before arriving in Italy, and this hotel came highly referred. I booked the room online, and also arranged for a taxi pickup from the airport. The driver arrived on time, and was also nice enough to point out attractions as we were driving to the hotel (half in Italian, half in broken English - but we appreciated the effort!). The hotel is in a safe, excellent, although somewhat hidden, location between the Campo di Fiori and Travestere neighborhoods. It is a great starting point from which to see many of Rome's top attractions: Pantheon, Trevi, Spanish steps, Colleseum - all within walking distance. Many wonderful restaurants and gelaterias are also close by. The rooms are average in size, with big beds (mattresses were very firm!), a desk, big closet, TV, A/C and a nice, clean modern tiled bathroom. It was so quiet we felt like the only guests staying in the hotel, although we asked for a quiet room. Some of the rooms near the street might be a little noisy.

    Lovely hotel and great location!!!!!!!

    from

    My boyfriend and I stayed here 16th-19th Sep 2003 and I would definitely return here. I booked the room direct with the hotel via email and they were friendly and really quick in all correspondence.

    Perfect hotel

    from

    It is a fantastic hotel- great location, nice rooms with a perfect view, rather quiet, -just everything you need from the hotel.I recommend it to everyone going to Rome.

    Hidden gem in old Rome

    from

    Smeraldo is fabulously local: a few minutes off the Campo de'Fiori, within walking distance of all the must-sees, St. Peter's and Trastevere.

    Sure, the taxi driver won't have a clue where it is, but the sidetreets thereabouts will reward you with plenty of bars, restaurants and Kodak moments amongst the ochre and marble whilst you hunt it down.

    And that's its charm: the place seems to melt into the local landscape like a row of badly-parked cinquecentos. Good sized, recently refurbished rooms with rooftop views. Helpful and friendly staff who will speak English and tolerate incomprehesible Italian.

    Skip the four-stars and use the change for a bottle of Prosecco with dinner instead. I've stayed in many Roman hotels and this is by far my favourite.

    Hotel Smeraldo, Rome was great

    from

    A group of 17 Iowa State University Alumni spent two weeks in Rome at the Hotel Smeraldo. The hotel rooms are small, but very adequate. The staff is great--English speaking.

    The breakfast was only fair. Bread and rolls good, orange juice tasted like powered juice and no other fruit was offered. Thin slices of meat and cheese were included and one kind of cereal.

    The location is wonderful--in the heart of Rome and within walking distance to major attractions.

    My Roman home

    from

    Ok, ok, so the rooms are small although the last time we stayed at the Smeraldo I asked for a quiet room and they gave us a large..and quiet.. room with a view of beautiful tile rooftops. I love this hotel. The staff speaks English very well except for "Bruno" who is the night desk clerk. The breakfast is not good: mostly little packages of dry cookies with some melon and glasses of what tasted like Tang. But the location is wonderful; just three short blocks from the Campo Di Fiori, across an alley from a wonderful coffe bar that has real fresh squeezed orange juice and around the corner from a wonderful bakery where we ate like the Romans every morning: Pizza Bianca. We lived at the Campo by day and slept very well in air conditioned rooms (Bruno occasionally tried to turn it off but we wagged a finger at him...Italians think AC is bad for you)at this hotel at night. The Smeraldo is clean, very friendly and I feel very much at home there. By the way, we walked to every important place in Rome with the exception of the Opera Housefrom there. Try it!! A sweet place.

    Best Deal in Town

    from

    Amazing location, unbeatable rates and excellent staff.. I will be staying here on all my trips to Rome.

    A Great Value

    from

    A quiet comfortable room on a lovely out of the way, street in a superb location near Campo dei Fiori, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and Forum. The friendly staff speak English and seek to please. There is a wonderful bakery just around the corner, and a sidewalk cafe just across the street. The air conditioned room was comfortable. The furnishings were average, everything was clean. I would deffinitely return.
