Travel Blogs from Rome
The day started out as beautiful and by mid afternoon had turned wet and blustery - our first real encounter with autumn/winter weather. Of course, it had to be the day I forgot my brolly. Ended up looking like a bag lady with one of those really classy flimsy plastic ponchos.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Stella Rome
Was very happy with our stay here. Ticked all the boxes: free WIFi, hot showers, comfy beds, clean, helpful reception staff, close to Metro stations (Termini, Repubblica & Castro Pretoria). Needed to print off vouchers for pre-booked reservations to Colosseum - no problem! Would stay here again. Bathroom was very small, however this seemed to be consistent across Italy.
