    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, ...

    ... waiting to take all of the philau students to our apartments. They dropped us off in front of a building in the center of Rome. We met with agents from a Rome apartment agency and they led us to each of our apartments. Our apartment is huge!!!! I share the apartment with five other girls. Tall ceilings and and beautiful views are some of the great aspects of our apartment. Once we settled a bit into our apartments, we met the rest of ...

    ... around, couples sitting by the fountain. I would compare it to central park in NYC, except for one main difference- there are young Italian couples making out everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE. As I entered, I saw a few of them rolling around in the grass along the paths, with or without blankets indicating some pretense of a picnic, but once I finally crested the first hill, I could see that the next slope was full of people making out on the ground. It was ...

The "A" line, Flaminio fermatta, we knew exactly where to go, we were well experienced with the "A" line. We took it back to 4 stops to the Terrmi, and then another 5 stops to Porto Lungo. A short walk, two blocks down and over and two blocks down again and we were back at the pad, but wait! The ...

    ... Forum, walking the cobble stone roads built by the ancient Romans. We wondered what would be left of today to be discovered, or uncovered by our descendents two thousand years later, if the world still exist and what they would think of us. It seems to me we haven't really advance that much in two thousand years, and a lot of what we have today, don't last for a few years, let alone a couple thousand ...
