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, ...

... portion of it is original, built around 50 A.D. Everything exists, just like the movies: the caverns beneath the arena floor, where the gladiators and lions prepared themselves for battle, where the dead and injured were hauled away.
The history surrounding the Roman Empire was astounding. The civilization was founded roughly around 762 B.C., in Rome, built upon a series of seven hilltops. Over history they expanded conquering much of Europe, Africa ...
We set off for Vatican City to meet our local tour guide at 7am this morning. As a tour group we were able to get into the Vatican before it opened to the public which was certainly a lovely perk. We had the Vatican Museums mostly to ourselves. Our guide was fantastic. The breadth of her knowledge was very impressive and she had a killer sense of humor to boot. She shared with us many little anecdotes and pointed out a ...
