... of fun but the great family man had a great calculator and I can understand why he kissed us all when we left. (Nick managed to dodge the kiss but dad was to slow).
A week in Sorrento was enough because Rome was calling. We were warned that Rome is beautiful but the traffic is crazy, and that is true. But with one hand on the horn and with Noel and Suzan’s tom tom, you can get anywhere!
Rome was rather busy the weekend we were there because two popes were ...
... our driver had very limited English so other than him understanding the address we needed to get to that was about it. He dropped us off at the opposite end of our street so we had to make our way down the cafe lined cobbled street with the ridiculous amount of luggage (previously mentioned). It was most stressful at the time but funny looking back, and I'm sure the tourists sipping their espresso's or spritz's in the cafe along Via Della Scala ...
... area, when we arrived the waiter advised us "don't drink the water, its only good for the flowers" with florence being the city of flowers i found it hilarious! The food was delicious and the wine was great! I encouraged crowd participation with the small band that was playing, the old dears and Asians responded well with swaying and YMCA. The night ended at space tech electronic disco nightclub. It was a great night and everyone had a ...

This ma and pa ristorante served an excellent buffula caprese salad and the house wine was outstanding!!!! I know it sounds like I'm making it up but the wine has been great everywhere. Arrivederci Roma. Tomorrow we leave for Sorrento. ...
... the umbrella when it started, but all of a sudden, it started running off the umbrella onto the table and onto their plates and splashing onto them. The wait staff was scurrying around to help people. Our waiter suggested that we move to a table inside. We all got up to do that, me last, and somehow I caught the table cloth and pulled it off the table!!! I was soooo embarrassed. Fortunately, the unused wine glass did not break, but the ...

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.
