Hotel Teatro Di Pompeo
Travel Blogs from Rome
We bid yet another farewell to Florence and took the train to Rome, where we took hailed a taxi to our hotel near the Campo dei Fiori. Taking taxis is Rome is not to be taken lightly. We were quoted some outrageous price, but I insisted that the driver turn on the meter and we would pay whatever it was, knowing full well, it would be less than he …
... sheep with no redeemable intentions of being found. As for Ej, I am happy for her to explore her own spirituality and will expose her to all religions and let her decide for herself. And if your wondering, Ej abruptly asked if we could never go to the Vatican City again. And we won't. Having given the holy city a shot these were my impressions. The headless statues, and endless corridors full of artworks, mosaic tiled floors, vast rare (purple) marble bath tub and gold covering ...
... We were not able to take any pictures inside the museum however.
Last, we stopped at a church, St. Peter in Chains. Michaelangelo was commissioned to create a tomb for this pope, but was unable to finish in time for the pope's death. His students completed his work. The church had many depictions of the pain of life and was very different from others we had visited.
We ended our day eating at Hard Rock Cafe in Rome.
... my suitcase out of the window (huge pink one was hard not to notice - smart me!), then no flights were cancelled and we were in the system, and most importantly - no fog was expected in Rome! So this was the story of how after 23 hours and 5 countries we finally reached our destination... Just to find the room freezing cold from the open windows and 0•C outside! Well, we didn't even have to get undressed to go to sleep - ...
Today started at what truly felt like the ungodliest of hours. 7:30 in the morning feels all but indistinguishable from 5:00 when the heavy privacy screens are down, and the apparent darkness (amplified by the rainy weather) conspired to leave us both a little stressed and a little tired as we ran out the door to try to catch breakfast and arrive at the Vatican inside 45 minutes to make our reservation -- only to run straight into the cleaning lady in the hall. Despite our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Teatro Di Pompeo Rome
Great Hotel, Excellent Location
We just spent two nights at Teatro di Pompeo and the hotel and staff were great. They were so helpful, concerned about your safety--very cute, but also real in Rome---and just obviously took care to know you a bit and were interested in who was staying at their hotel. Rooms are very large and comfortable. We had a restaurant that we wanted to go to and they found the number for us so we could call for a reservation. When we came down to leave, they had printed out a map of our walking route! Great cappucinos for breakfast!
My wife and I stayed in the Teatro for part of our Honeymoon and overall LOVED it.
Regarding the room, our was very spacious, even for American standards, and fullsized bathroom. The only drawback was that the room we got, the door was right off the check-in room, which was a little too close for comfort.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast in the morning, was very good (for a european breakfast), and the location was AMAZING. It was right about a block away from the Campo de' Fiori, which is a great square to eat, or just hang out.
I would recommend this place to everyone that goes to Rome.
Fantastic location, warm welcome
Fantastic location in the old city, friendly staff and comfortable room. An excellent choice for a short break.
We came to Rome for a 4 days long weekend, and the hotel was ideal. many small restaurants close by, and within walking distance to anywhere in central Rome. The weather turned out to be quite cold, and it was good to have effective heating in the room. Breakfast was buffet style, and generous for this class of hotel
We stayed eight days in the Teatro di Pompeo while attending a wedding. It was a perfectly delightful visit.
March 2005 trip
I stayed at the Hotel Teatro di Pompeo March 13-18, 2005. I have stayed at this hotel before, and thought that on this trip, the hotel still lived up to my previous experiences. The room was quite comfortable. The hotel is centrally located to many of the ancient and other sites in Rome. (And the hotel itself is on top of a famous ancient site.) The staff is attentive and very helpful if you need to make museum reservations. The breakfast is excellent. While I was there, I needed some medical-related assistance and they were very helpful in providing that assistance. All in all, this is a wonderful place to stay.
Nice hotel,the perfect location
Ideal location right slap bang in the middle of it all and yet very quiet, clean, good price, nice room.
Excellent choice for old Rome
My husband and I just returned from an 8-night stay in Rome. Using the recommendations from TripAdvisor, we opted for the Hotel Teatro di Pompeo, and we were very glad we did. While simply furnished, the rooms are very large by European standards and comfortable. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. When I complained about a squeaky door, we returned two hours later to find it already repaired. Breakfast is good, and the location is unbeatable for proximity to tourist locations and to transportation.
Good choice in rome
We stayed here for 3 nights in May 2004. Location is very good. We were able to walk to all of the big sights in central Rome fairly easily (Colisseum, Forum, Spanish Steps, Vatican, etc). Room was clean and fine, but nothing spectacular. Breakfast was very good. Front desk was helpful - set up a ride to the airport that was very convenient.
As for location, this hotel can't be beat, just outside of Campo di Fiore which really is the heart of a lot of the action in Rome. We checked into this hotel without a reservation on a Friday night at 9PM which in itself was somewhat of a miracle. The gentleman at the reception informed us the only had one room remaining and only charged us 150 Euro which was below the typical rate.
Great hotel in heart of Rome
We spent 3 nights at the Hotel Teatro di Pompeo and highly recommend it. It was centrally located and within walking distance (less than a mile) of most major attractions including ancient Rome, the Vatican area, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps. Hotel is also very close to 2 wonderful local plazas - Campo di Fiori (local market and tavernas) and Piazza Navona (historic plaza with nice restaurants). Hotel room was air conditioned and very nice, breakfast each morning was quite well done and staff was accomodating and helpful. We made our reservations and cooresponded directly with the hotel. Americo Onorati (manager) was most helpful and arranged for our pick up at the airport as well as limo to Civitavecchia (port of Rome) on departure.
