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.

This morning started relatively early, compared to our last few days, as we had to complete last minute packing before breakfast them taxi journey to the station for the train to Florence where we would catch the 11.15 Frecciarossa to Rome. The small regional train to Florence was fairly full, and every little station along the way saw scenes of …
... one of the most fun and memorable (well not so memorable) nights ever. Everyone was so fun and friendly and hit it off almost instantly, plus it was really really good to hear an Australian accent again. The Colosseum was even more impressive, as you walk out of Colosseo station i expected to walk some time before i reach it, but no, BOOM, it was right in from of the station, literally across the road and you are there. Smack in the middle of the city. Its hard to ...
... Arch of Titus, we are provided details that make the entire Roman Forum come alive. Moving quickly up the hill past the Arch of Costantino, James takes us to the Palantino and the highest point in the Forum where the Emperors and Aristocrats built residences for themselves. The ruins include the simple house that Augustus was believed to have lived. From one point on the edge of the Palantino, we have a remarkable view of much of current day "downtown" Rome.
... When we finally decided to leave and head back towards Trevi fountain we passed a gelato place and go figured we had it agin!! I think that's number three already on this trip! It's just so yummy!! And yes Abby, we will get some soon... I'm sure it won't be as good but will be pretty darn good. Anyways, after that we took the back road path to Trevi fountain enjoying the ever unique side streets of Rome. Once we did get to Trevi we saw ...
How do I even begin to describe what I have experienced since my arrival?
Well, I guess the best way would be to start at the beginning.
Day 1 we arrived at Fiumiciano Airport. It was a pretty smooth process, but we had a long wait to gather our group together. Most of us (students) were able to sleep a few hours on the plane. The airport had dim lighting and smelled like cigarettes... Thankfully, baggage ...
