Travel Blogs from Rome
Buon giorno! Mom and I have arrived safely in Rome! We are just making a quick stop in an internet cafe on our way back to our hotel. We arrived on time, 7:30 am, and were on a train to Rome Termini station right away. We checked in, left our bags, and hopped on the Metro to Vatican City. We toured the Vatican Museum for a bit, hung out in the …
... headquarters gate, which gives you a hedge-framed view of St. Peter’s dome. It was a special little experience.
For dinner we visited Maccheroni, where Michelle Obama ate on one of her Rome trips. I had a chicken dish, and Joanna got some delicious tortellini. We felt like it was a very authentic, understated and classy place.
Some observations about Rome to finish...
One, there are many beggars. Some have their children with them, some have their dogs. ...
... Milking a Goat". It is a beautiful piece of work and he was only 11 when he did this. Rick Steves is quite comical as his comment to this is, "That's about the age I was when I mastered how to make a Play-Doh snake". My favourites in this gallery - Bernini's David (1624), Apollo and Daphne (1625), The Rape of Prosperine (1622), Aeneas (1620), Caravaggio , David with the head of Goliath, Deposition by Raphael and finally Sacred ...
... best view- the dearest coffee we have had so far, 5.50 euro compared to the 1 or 2 euro at a bar down the road. We had a last walk around the area and really enjoyed the vibe of the Square, the fountain being centre stage and surrounded by cafes and restaurants.
We then strolled done to Piazza Navona only a few minutes walk away. This square is the most famous and considered the most beautiful in Rome, but it was a bit touristy with all the stalls and vendors looking ...
Woke to a glorious sun soaked day and decided to wander aimlessly along the little cobblestone via's in the hope of finding a cafe and pastry for breakfast on this public holiday (labour day).
We need not have worried as there was many places opened and lucky for us we found a wonderful little cafe. I ordered a latte and a pastry (filled with custard) and I have to say it was the best pastry I have ever eaten !! Brucey ordered a ham and cheese croissant and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Welrome Hotel
My husband and I stayed at the Welrome hotel for three nights, and had a wonderful time. The room is nice enough -- small, as you would expect in Rome, but comfortable with a large opening window and a small table and chairs in addition to the king sized bed. The best thing about the hotel is Mary and Carlo, who are more helpful than you can imagine. They directed us to an inexpensive place to eat (that we could NEVER find on our own!), to the best gelato, to the best places to visit, etc., and gave us tips on timing to best beat the crowds. We also learned the history of places in Rome and were directed to some churches with wonderful art and sculptures that we may not have visited otherwise. The location is very convenient, close to the train station, metro, buses, and within walking distance
We did not know what to expect with this hotel selection. Our search for a great hotel at a reasonable price in Rome seemed impossible but we decided to go for it based on reviews here.
¡Mi hermana estuvo en el Welrome a principios de agosto y se lo pasó en grande! El hotel está bien situado, sólo a pocos minutos de la estación de trenes de Termini, y es limpio y moderno. El baño es moderno y la habitación tiene aire acondicionado. También hay una nevera en la habitación, lo cual fue muy adecuado (¡además hay un supermercado o dos minutos de ahí para poder llenar la nevera!) Hay muchísimos bares y cafeterías cerca de ahí por lo que no supuso ningún problema el hecho de que no hubiera desayuno. La gente que dirige el hotel es maravillosa, amable y muy atenta. En resumen disfrutamos cada momento de nuestra estancia en el Welrome. Natalie, Londres.
Maravillosa estancia, gran sitio, personal atento
Las habitaciones son espaciosas y limpias. Mary y Carlo estaban disponibles para darte sugerencias sobre los sitios de interés y dónde ir. Al final de un largo día por Roma resultaba agradable volver a un entorno tan acogedor y atractivo. Recomendaré el Welrome a cualquiera que visite Roma.
We enjoyed our stay at Welrome very much. Mary and Carlo were excellent hosts. Both have very good command of English. They offered advice on places to see, places to eat and how to get there. Mary and Carlo were very friendly and caring to two strangers.Welrome (short for Welcome to Rome) is close to Termini station, supermarkets, historical sights and transport, both train and buses. The room was quiet, even though it was facing the street. It was clean and large enough for a comfortable stay and suited our budget. We would definitely go there again. An added bonus is the restaurant Volpi de Molises next door, which is open late. It was wonderful to come to very good food and just relax after a long day of sight seeing. There were regular locals having dinner or drinks.
Wonderful Stay, great location, helpful staff
The rooms are spacious and clean. Mary and Carlo were always on hand to give great cost-saving advice on sightseeing, eating and travel. At the end of a long day around Rome, it was nice to come back to such a friendly and inviting environment. I will recommend Welrome to anyone visiting Rome.
The hotel is well situated near to the termini, it is clean, the rooms are en suite, is comfortable and has a fridge and safe in each bedroom.
In a sea of merely good hotels, Welrome absolutely stands out as a GREAT hotel for one MAJOR reason: it's proprietors. Mary and Carlo run tiny Welrome hotel with so much care and give you so much attention you might think you paid a fortune to book your room. Or to the contrary, you might think you paid nothing since you're staying with family. They are extremely helpful and were almost like doting parents - our favorite part of the stay was their tips on where to go and what to avoid, how to get there, where to eat, and pretty much anything else you'd care to know. Ok, now on to the hotel itself:
My sister stayed at the Welrome at the beginning of August and had a lovely time ! The hotel is well situated, only a few minutes from the Termini train station, and is clean and modern = modern en suite bathroom and air conditioning.
There was also a 'fridge in the room, which was very convenient (plus there's a supermarket 2 minutes away to stock up the fridge!). There are loads of coffee bars in the vicinity so it didn't really matter that breakfast was not provided.
The people who run the hotel are wonderful - friendly and very helpful.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Welrome.
This sums up our feelings about the wonderful Welrome Hotel. Its proprietors, Mary and Carlo, dedicated themselves to every last detail to make our stay in Rome comfortable, enjoyable, and rewarding. They explained that the "Wel" in the name of their hotel stands for "Welcome", and they spare no effort in realizing the promise of that name for their guests.
