    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, ...

    We passed many ancient ruins with the most impressive being obviously the Coliseum which is too large to photograph. We then entered technically another country the Vatican City. We lined up in the long queue for St Peter's Cathedral which moved surprisingly quickly thankfully as it was in the 30's. I just passed the knees test without having ...

    ... and we were hungry. We headed closer to the city to look for a dinner, making our way down the Via del Corso--one of the big streets running through the middle of Rome. On each side there were fancy designers like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Prada. The streets were wide and full of people. The excitement of Easter weekend was in the air!
    While looking for dinner, we headed towards the Roman Ruins and the Colosseum, where we stumbled upon one of my favorite parts of the ...

    ... it had been closed for nearly 15 minutes. Ah well, we thought, we're just starting to get peckish; we might as well head back to our neighborhood and get something light for dinner. We settled on a little hosteria we'd had pointed out to us when we checked in, and went inside. Dino & Tony's (run, unsurprisingly, by Dino and Tony) was a remarkably small place, and despite the crowds already present, we were promptly seated almost uncomfortably close to three priests ...

    ... it all in. It is amazing what the Romans built without modern construction equipment and also erie to think about what it was used for. We then walked to palatine hill and the forum. We absolutely loved the casual stroll and sights there. We are surprised at how steep and hilly all Rome is and the great views at every turn there is We even were joined by some geckos as we walked the forum grounds. After this we were exhausted from being up for 36 hours straight, so we grabbed ...
