Day 2 in Roma. The start of our day was a three hour Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica tour. Although I had done the tour before, and went with a personal guide (best way to go), it was good to go again because this tour guide focused on different things than the first your guide. It was also nice to go through and get to …
... to the apartment. Thank you Francesco.
Got pizza again from the nearby restaurant. Yum. They have a plaque indicating a best pizza award won in Vegas in 2012. Amazing for such a small place.
Tom, Stacey and Bob went for an evening stroll through the Piazza de Popolo to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. Nice relaxing time. Rome is great by night capped off with a nice ...
... was amazing. I hope the photos do it justice. Also in the church is Michealangelo’s Pieta, his sculpture of Mary holding the desceased Jesus. The sculpture now sits behind bulletproof glass after someone ran into the church and starting hacking away at it with a hammer, crazy!
Following our time in Vatican city we checked out the Circo Massimo. The Circo is where the ancient Romans held chariot races. Next we headed to ...
... the capacity.
It was now 4:30 pm, I had been walkin the streets since 7:30. I took the subway 2 stops back to ermini station for 1 euro. I stopped at the McDonalds, which didnt open until 10AM by the way and bought some fries and a hamburger for 2 euro. Eat at McDonalds in Italy-DONE.
From here I headed over to an internet cafe and updated the Thailand blog and checked my email and what not for the better part of 3 hours. After that I went ...
... like at home, but in the city itself it seemed a bit busier. There are many more small cars, scooters and motorcycles and they don't always stay in their lanes. Scooters will pass cars on the right and cars will straddle lanes, but everyone seems to know what is going on so it works.
We are staying at a convent across the street from where Melissa and Livio live. The area is ...

For a room of three people they only had one key. Also you had to have the key to turn the lights or anything else in the apartment on. The breakfast was a great spread and very good. Having fresh fruit for breakfast made me really happy to stop eating carbs every five seconds.

Historical Traveler Reviews Worldhotel Ripa Roma Rome
for the amount of money they charge there should be more to it than a "designed" façade...
Okay, but wouldn't stay there again
Stayed here as part of an organised tour in October 2004.
Hotel looks great and is very modern, but unfortunately this is really only a veneer. The finishings in my room were basically unfinished - the plug did not fit the sink (which was not attached properly to the vanity), the air con leaked in the bathroom and everytime I used the shower the bathroom floor flooded as there wasn't a drain and the shower curtain didn't fit the shower properly! Also, the slick looking bedhead had an unfinished chipboard wall behind it! Hardly quality. Positives were the big room and double glazed windows. But I wouldn't stay here again if I was organising my own trip to Rome. Especially considering it wasn't cheap!
My family and I stayed at this hotel for 5 days during a recent trip to Rome and we absolutely loved it. We'd never heard about the hotel before but some friends who had stayed at the Ripa said it was a great value. I was a bit skeptical at first because I didn't know the area very well, Trastevere, but a 10 minute walk just over the Tevere bridge and you're in the heart of Rome. Trastevere itself turned out to be a very quaint, charming, typical Roman neighborhood with no car traffic in the small streets and the best restaurants in all of Rome. My kids (19 & 21) loved the neighborhood for all of the great bars and places to hang out for young kids. My wife loved the shopping.
Dirty, smelly hotel
The hotel room was very smelly and dirty. The air conditioner leaked all the time in our entrance. I wore my shoes all the time. The dog kennel down the street made it hard to sleep.
Location is great for area, Trastevere, however, dog kennel down the alley had dogs barking all night each night. Rooms are minimalist but functional. Carpets were dirty (enough that dissuaded barefoot walking). Sister-in-Laws room had air conditioner dripping water into their room and huge wet moldy spot on their carpet. It was close to great cafe and club district. Staff was professional but very cold and not eager to please. We expected more from the description and photos on the Web.
My family and I stayed at Hotel Ripa for 6 nights during easter, we had 2 very large connecting rooms. The hotel is very modern and we did not have any problems with the fixtures in the rooms, bathrooms or the staff which we found fairly friendly. The hotel is close by a tramway stop with 2 lines one headed to Plaza Largo Argentina (near plaza Venezia)and another towards the Testaccio area.The area around the hotel does not impress,and its very quiet. There is a supermarket close by and a short walk away there are many restaurants for every taste and budget. As expected Rome was very crowded and we were a bit irritated by the way they people get pressed into the Sixtine chapel otherwise great trip to be repeated off season to profit from the number of events that take place in Rome before and after easter.
Very nice hotel, love it!
Ripa Hotel is located in the Trastevere area (a taxi ride takes only 10-15 minutes from city centre). Nice lobby with beautiful design furniture. The decoration of rooms is great: italian taste at its best ! Breakfast was ok but not fantastic.
I do not understand the negative reviews about this hotel, I very much enjoyed the Ripa Hotel, I will return to this hotel for my next visit to Rome.
Unforgettable honeymoon thanks to ripa hotel !!....
...just a short note to thank you all the staff at ripa hotel, thanks to them we really enjoied our trip - we had a fabulous suite, they welcome us with flowers and champagne, they really surprised us. We loved trastevere area, where we spent unforgettable romantic walkings till late at night even if mostly of our friends told us to be carefull to walk at night in Rome. It'swas an interesting experience to be in an old city like Rome, and leave in a futuristic design hotel like Ripa. If you wish to have a non common holiday in Rome, Ripa hotel is the right place for you !.....
Biggest Disappointment ever
Our stay was one big letdown. The "Suite" turned out to be a
normal-sized double with a rather small bathroom. It has a balcony, but
with a view on a dilapidating office building from the 70s. The room
itself was over-designed and had no armoire or other place for ur
belongings. The hotel itself seemed to be a converted office block and
lies a good walk away from the heart of the charming Trastevere
quarter. In spite of the hefty price, the breakfast was not more than
youth-hostel level. Finally, the fitness club was not open to the
4 star hotel outside of Rome center (Trastevere). Ugly building from the outside, but beautiful design inside and beautiful rooms. Very, very loud though! Not just slamming doors and talking in the corridors (hey, that's Italian), but discotheque on ground floor, partying at 86 dB+ all night long. Don't - I repeat - don't go here if you need to sleep at night. Dog-kennell next to the building. Staff is not very friendly. My conclusion: just design isn't worth the room rate of $330/night.
