... and sure enough they knew exactly how to make Meredith's long macchiato (even teaching her how to say it 'properly'). Wills and I ordered a chicken burger and Meredith had a caprese sandwich with mozzarella cheese and parma. We continued the drive down past Napoli and finally spotted Mount Vesuvius in the distance. It didn't look quite as imposing as we thought it would (there are larger mountains in these parts), but the caldera made it ...
Day 47 We caught A Royal Maroc plane to Morocco, the trip went without a hitch apart from having to go through security twice, because I can not take of my bangles. I had to take of my shoes, belt, be frisked and scanned. I forgot to take the water out of my collapsable plastic water bottle and because I didn't want to lose it, I went looking for a toilet only to find the toilet was barricaded, I didn't know what to do and then I found ...
... restaurant run by a woman and her husband (I assume) and it was incredible. We had veal Medallions wrapped in prosciutto with buttered sage, carbonara pasta with crumbled fried prosciutto and baked mixed vegetables. Oh my gosh! To die for! Dessert was on our mind after we left the restaurant so we went to a famous place for gelato (I forget the name) and I see why they are famous. The process of acquiring the gelato ...

Well, this relic opened the emotive floodgates for sure, and though as a Protestant relics hold no special piety for me, that chain certainly moved me.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Spring House Rome
Overall, a very good choice. Mainly positives but a couple of minor issues that deserve mentioning.
My wife and I, along with my wife's aunt and cousin, stayed at the Spring House for 7 nights in early May. We had an excellent stay and we pretty much reiterate the positive comments of the other reviewers. The staff was responsive and friendly to all inquiries and requests. The breakfasts were great. The rooms were clean and neat. Our room had a balcony, which overlooked the neighboring apartment building. We didn't notice the street noise so much, perhaps because we had a room facing away from the street. There was a bit of noise from other rooms and from water rushing through the pipes but we've heard worse at other hotels here in the States.
We went to Rome for a week in March to tour as well as visit our daughter, a student at Temple University-Rome. It was perfect. She was able to walk back and forth from the Residence when she wanted to join us, which was just great.Service was fantastic - staff could not have been more accomodating. The breakfast was incredible - when we opened the hotel room door in the morning, the smell of fresh baked pastries was the first thing to hit you. I would give anything to sit and have one of those breakfasts again. And I DON"t get up for hotel complimentary breakfasts. This was well worth it getting up for :)The location was excellent and we did use the Metro every day to get to the tourist sites. But, when it came down to being in a real middle class neighborhood, the experience could not be beat. The restaurants were friendly and moderately priced with excellent food. The stores were not tourist oriented and we shopped in our down time. We had no qualms about walking around late at night in this neighborhood whatsoever. I sure hope to return someday. A week in Rome is simply not enough. We would stay at the Springhouse in a heartbeat.
HOTEL IS REASONABLY PRICED My husband and I and our 2 teenagers stayed at Spring House for 3 nights in Jan. 2004. Hotel is comfortable and has a friendly and helpful staff. I liked that we were all able to stay in the same room with 1 queen bed and 2 good-sized rollaways. Bathroom was smallish -- very small shower only, no tub. Plenty of hot water.
My mom and I just stayed at Spring House for 8 nights in late September. We were very impressed with it -- most of all, the service stands out. Everyone at the desk, snack bar, and breakfast room were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I agree with the other reviewer about the delicious, delicious breakfast and the clean, shiny interior.
My wife and I just returned from a two week vacation in Italy. We stayed at Hotel Spring House for our 4 nights in Rome. Of all the hotels we stayed at this hotel was the absolute best. The positives far outweight any negatives. The staff was spectacular! Very nice, very willing to help out with ANYTHING, all in all wonderful. I would give them 6 stars out of five possible. The location was great also. Is is just two blocks from the entrance to the Vatican Museum. Located in a wonderful neighborhood, full of non-tourist shops, grocery stores, gelaterias, and good local resturants. It is a safe place to walk around at night! Also, It is a only a few blocks from a bus station that you can catch a bus to anywhere in the city. As far as the hotel itself. The decor is modern-contemporary. We were very happy with it.
Not very happy
The hotel room was too small, especially with the column right in the middle of the room it made it even worse. We had to open the door to get the cool air come in mid March. The lady Stephanie at the front desk was very rude. Others were extremely nice.
