    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, ...

    Saturday started nice and early with a shuttle bus to the Vatican City and another perfect cloudless day of about 26 degrees. Before meeting up with our tour group for the morning we stopped at a little corner cafe and had our first taste of Italian Coffee - #2 on the list of things better then sex. Once we met up with our tour group we crossed the border from Rome into the Vatican City to start our three hour tour. Over the next three hours we would visit the Vatican ...

    ... and beautiful. It was truly worth the walk to get there, and it's free!

    We set out to go and find a show shop I saw 3 weeks ago with a gorgeous pair of shoes in the window, but it was shut and I couldn't go in. Well our map was wrong and somehow we ended up in a totally different direction, but we came to the area called the Roman forum. There we saw the building known colloquially as the Wedding Cake, but is the monument to Vittorio Emmanuel ...

    ... far and getting a little lost!! But we found ourselves back on track.. but the buildings weren't as WOW as we thought they might be so we side-tracked and headed up to the church of Saint Maria. Because I had my shoulders showing (travel note: Do not wear shorts and a singlet in rome if you are planning on visiting churches.. because you wont be allowed in!) .. they gave me a material scarf to put over my shoulders.. but it was so disgusting.. it ...

    ... it felt like, only good, to see the giant structure right in front of me as I exited from the underground terminal. About the size I expected, this thing was still huge, and so was the line up to go inside, and the entrance fee. Shannon and I decided to walk around the monster arena first, taking in its magnificence and technical beauty before caving to the million or so tour guides around the place and buying a tour for €25. Now that sounds a little pricey and you're right but ...
