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, ...

Once we got to Rome we walked to our hotel. That night we walked to a restaurant and ate gnocchi.
The following day we walked to the Colosseum and walked around and through it. That night we walked over to the biggest wishing fountain in the world. It is called the Trevi fountain.

... overall interacting with the Italian community.
Orientation was pretty fun. Not bad. We took the tram 8 to Argentina and then walked the rest to the ACCENT center! A nice walk into the old-looking parts of Rome. Stone buildings, alleyways, cobblestones, everything I was expecting that I didn't see yesterday! Hurrah! Roma! Even though it was raining, it was thrilled to finally see the Rome of my dreams :)

Monday, July 9 We take the metro (like pros I might add) to the Colosseum for a three-hour tour with Jimmy. Just as he brought color and life to our Vatican tour, so did he with our Colosseum and Forum tour. We learned a great deal of history ranging from 100 BC to 1600 AD and all of it fascinating. Rome's history is a story still being told ...
... guides we have come across yet.
Onto the Colosseum and eternal Rome. Well our guide for today is an older chap who also has fairly good English. He is quite funny and needed plenty of rest stops to recover. Once at the Colosseum we were confronted with 1. No lifts today - they are not working 2. Toilets are not working either but there were a couple of portable wc's in place. The guide explains that Rome is in a terrible state no money spent ...
... to the steps of the pantheon i was able to take final pictures with my new friends from the trip before heading to the restaurant. It was a pretty good dinner, not one of my favorite italian meals, and after we headed to what has been named the best gelato place in Rome. We thought we had it earlier today, we were wrong. Tonight the gelato was some of the best I have had in Italy. Oreo something ...
