Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Virgilio Rome
AOK Hotel in ROme
Locaation grat - five blocks from trian station. Quiet street. We asked for and got a third floor room - no street noise. Brakfast substandard. Room nice and clean with refrigerator and Safe. BBC and CNN Enlgish speaking. With the exception of one of the women (a long service employee) on the front desk, the front desk personnel were helpful and friendly. We would stay there again.
Good Location. That's about all ....
Great location. Quite street. Clean rooms, bathrooms, lobby, restaurant.
The issue I have with the hotel is that they allowed us to check in to our rooms without informing us that there was no hot water for the second floor rooms. Instead, they forced us to deal with ice cold showers for 2 1/2 days. This was very frustrating and made for a misrable trip to Rome. The hotel staff did not attempt to help with the situation. Infact, I would say that they were not helpful at all.
Bottom line ... if you like a nice room, but do not care about the service, Hotel Virgilio is your place to stay. Just pray nothing goes wrong with your room! Sometime it pays to spend a little more money to get good service.
Nice and modern hotel
One of the best things of the Virgilio hotel is the location, very near the Venecia square, the Roman Forum and the Quirinale, and very well connected by bus to every place in the city (plenty of bus stops in the nearby). It is situated in a quiet street behind Via Nazionale, so you take the advantages of being well situated and in a quiet street. The rooms are a bit small but really nice and modern. Actually, they seem to be completely new: the moquette carpet, the blankets, the walls, the toilet... things where normally you can see that one hotel is not so new, in this case were actually new. The bed is very comfortable, and the toilet is clean and very decent. So, in general, the hotel is recommended for those that are looking for a nice, modern, comfortable and clean place to stay in Rome. The lobby is also small but nice. The hotel does not have restaurant, but just a small room for the breakfast. But you can find plenty of Restaurants around the hotel (very recommended the Pizzeria "Al Giubileum", 75 m. from the hotel). The only thing that was not so nice was the breakfast: even if it was buffet (you can take whatever you want), it was poor on the variety of things to eat: only bread, some croissants, and just butter/marmalade to put inside(no bacon, cheese either some other things to be eaten). But as an overall, I think that I would choose the Virgilio Hotel in my next visit to Rome. Good breakfast can be found in some other cafes, but good, quiet, modern and well located places to sleep can't be found so frequently in Rome.For more details, ...

... yet there is no line for you! Ha, the faces on those poor people in the 2hour lines were hilarious! And that alone is worth the price (you alse get free public transport - bonus).
The size and scope of the Palatino (which includes the old imperial palace and forum) is pretty overwhelming. They won't ever be able to excavate it all, and the most well perserved sites were converted to places of christian worship so the rest were essentially left to rot and ruin or pilfered for ...
... with an table outside and ate a very tasty dinner of bruschetta, gnocchi and pasta, topped off with a gelato. After dinner we walked through the city streets and along the main road Via Nazionale, and had a look inside the shops. Ash purchased a couple of pairs of leather shoes at a sale, and Lauren still on the hunt for her new leather boots too. After a bit of retail therapy, back to Hotel Opera for a well needed sleep with very satisfied stomachs! Day 15- Wednesday 21st ...
... the wish came true and we have little Tyler Edward on the way :)
The next day has been our busiest day in a long time. We forgot how intense sightseeing is. We woke up as early as we could so we would still be around for our free breakfast and hit the Colosseum at 8am. We heard it gets really crowded and it was the closest to our hotel, but we timed it right and walked right in. It was quite huge and all the fun facts ...
... same car with such a craftsman. To be honest, I was just happy I wasn’t on the sidewalk.
He got us to our apartment in what must have been record time. I paid him a ridiculously small fee, in my estimation, and we met the caretaker, Antonio. Antonio was an elderly man, and saying he is a gentleman gives honor to the word. He shook hands and greeted all five of us, gave my girls a kiss on the cheek, and spoke in such a kind and open tone that ...
