Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Traiano Rome
Traiano - should be 2 or 3 star not 4, good location
I stayed at Traiano this summer. In general the hotel is ok. But certainly it is not a four star hotel, I would say it should be somewhere between two and three star. I think it is a general problem in Rome, they must use different scale when rate the hotels.
Bring earplugs, hotel is on a busy street. Some rooms face a more quiet side street but unfortunately there is a "wine bar" across the street so either way earplugs are useful.
The location is very good very close to everything.
Avoid This Hotel
Centrally located but lousy service. We felt penalized for booking the "great rate" on the internet. We were clearly given a lousy room as a result--it was over a bar that had a band until 2am every night. The front desk staff was uninterested, bordering on hostile. They snuck charges onto our bill for items they implied were already included.
Avoid this hotel and sleep elsewhere.
Hotel Traiano, bad start but good result
We spent four days in rome between 21-25.2.2004. Whwn we arrived our hotel, Traiano, they said that there is some problems with the rooms and they have already arranged us a new hotel. A new hotel, Champange Palace was far away from good. I think that 2 stars is enougf for them. After this one night stand we got our good room in Traiano. If you stay in this hotel it si better that you get the room where the windows not are on the main street or you need something in your ears to get sleep. Our room were opposite direction and the room was vety nice, not a big one, but very clean. The hotel is in great place and all the major sights of the city are very near and you can also make easily shopping Via Nacionale which is not so overprized than the narow streets near Trevi and Spanga. We paid totaly 266? for four nights because hotel didn`t count the first night at all. So after all, if I go Rome second time, I will choose Traiano again.Ari / Jyv?skyl?, FInland

Excellent location and good value, very friendly English-speaking staff, plentiful cold collation for breakfast. I had spent time researching Roman hotels and did not expect a large room to be available at a price I could afford. The room was small, but located at the back of the hotel, so road noise was minimal -- I expect the front rooms are noisier. The only trouble we had was the ventilation system, since it allows all the rooms in a group to share the experience when one customer has a cigarette in his room. We enjoyed staying here both from a romantic and practical point of view. Many good restaurants are nearby, and the hotel is located right across from the newly reopened Trajan's Markets. This was important because we are ancient-history enthusiasts and chose this hotel in part for its proximity to ancient sites. We will stay here again.
Anything but quality!
I was planning the perfect romantic weekend in Rome and had high expectations of the Quality Inn Traiano after looking at wonderful photos and reviews on various websites. However, I realised the mistake I had made before we had even entered the hotel. It was situated on a completely non-descript road, along which all traffic entering the city centre passes. The lobby area was small but promising, and I hoped that it wouldn't be too bad afterall. However, the reception staff were indifferent, and our requested double bed was not available. The lift was smaller than a service elevator. And as for the room - it was basically small and very ugly, with a whole wall covered with dirty brown and craked mirrors! We were horrified and asked to change rooms. The replacement room was bigger but just as ugly and dated, and we checked out the very next morning, even though it meant loosing some money, and moved to a truly "quality" hotel so that our holiday could finally begin properly. It was a very disappointing, costly and upsetting start to our break in Rome. How this hotel can boast 4 stars I have no idea. A clean and basic 2 star would be more preferable to the "quality" offered here.

... and because it was free entry there was no way to skip it. We had some really good gelato- one placed served actual Nutella instead of Nutella gelato which was a bit sickly . The next day we didn't do much in the morning but went over to the Colosseum at about 4pm. As it was about to close we didn't have to line up which was good.

... don't fear that I will get run over in Rome. I love being able to walk to the Vatican or take the metro to the coliseum! I am so very happy and thankful for this time. I really feel like I am learning more about myself and the world every day that I am here.
I will try to put some pictures up here after my photography class and dinner tonight!
Hugs to all of you from Rome and ciao for now!
... headsets because I'm just going to leave them somewhere during my travels (it's true--I've left 4 or 5 of them on airplanes, cabs, hotel rooms never to be seen again). So because of that young man, I can now be telling the story with a very different ending and feel. Yikes! I'll try to be more careful for the rest of the trip, but not making any promises!
So yesterday we awoke to a beautiful pink sky over Rome. We got ...
... maps, oh yeah we got lost!! Gary cannot tell who speaks english and who doesn't they all look the same but there are still lots of wonderful tourists who all have their maps out that were able to help. Gave up on the Trevi Fountain for today, Karen hasn't taken any pills so knees not too good!! Tried the Pistachio icecream everyone raves about, not sure why was just OK.

... it would happen and all the expenses. We then made our way around parts of Rome. We walked along a bridge where I got some amazing shots. We then when down a couple of side streets and ended up at a fountain. We spent about an hour and a half there. I blacked out for about half an hour just sitting there thinking. I still managed to get a good look at all the stores around though. When we left, we walked for about half an hour, ...
