        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, ...

        ... now high above where St. Peter's tomb lay. It became common for popes to request that they be buried in that 8-foot layer below the basilica. In the 1940's, the pope wanted to be buried closer to St. Peter and, when they started to dig, a Necropolis wall was discovered and archaeological digging began. ..but not touching the area where St . Peter's grave was believed to be. Over the years, some doubt had been cast as to whether St. Peter was truly buried here. The next ...

        ... they had to get creative and come up with a different source of entertainment. Some heathen thought it would be exciting to persecute minorities (especially Christians) by watching them fight wild animals and gladiators. The crowds would roar and cheer while people like St. Peter was crucified. Eventually once Christianity was legalized, Constantine built a church on the site of where Peter was executed as Peter was considered the first ...

        ... walk in town. Shopping in Europe has been an adventure. We grab what we think might be just about right and give it a try. We have been surprised at times, but it's working out. We walked to the Spanish Steps first. Think Roman Holiday. We then strolled our way through the streets to the Trevi Fountain. So beautiful. SO many people! Off a side street by the fountain is a gelato shop called ...

        ... Upon entering the chapel, you don't really know where to look first; there's just so much going on. Instinctively you look for the center panel on the ceiling showing God creating Adam, which we've all seen so many times. It truly is spectacular, but so is everything else around it. The Sistine Chapel was also recently resorted and Michelangelo's use of colour is superb. Looking up at the ceiling, my neck started to hurt, and I can't even imagine ...
