Goodbye Drouin/Melb/Aus. Flight to Doha. Way too much food on offer. Finally watched Frozen. Love conquers all! Stopovers Doha - very hot here, bus into terminal, five hours wait then onto Fumicino. Time for a real coffee then boarded De Havilland aircraft heading across the Adriatic to Dubrovnik. Arrived after 30 hours of travel. What a welcome sight; white limestone cliffs, pencil pine conifers pointing to the sky, warm sunshine over the crystal blue ...

So much to see, so far to go!

... route today. It starts on the other side of Isola Tiberina (that's the sand bar with the 2 hospitals). The Ghetto is where the Jewish population was confined by Pope Paul IV in 1555, the equivalent of just 4 city blocks! It wasn't until 1870 (Unification of Italy) that their rights and citizenship was restored. It was also in the Ghetto where the Nazi’s rounded up 1000 Jews, mostly women and children, and sent them to concentration camps in Northern Europe.

On my own, exploring!

... I walked over to the Pantheon and it was equally quiet. I decided not to go inside again since I hadn't done any research yet, but I’ll come back another morning.

Back at Campo de Fiori, I bought tomatoes, a large avocado, and a pear for 4,50 Euro, and also a cucumber for 1 Euro (that seems high?) and then headed back to the apartment. I’d been out for 2 hours. I spent the next several hours writing up ...

... gelato, espresso, affogato, panini, pizza, pasta or a nice bottle of Barolo or Chianti. I met a few artists here and had my portrait done in 25 mins for 65. E I would love to come back and maybe more relaxed next time. No more rush to different sites but enjoy more of wining and dining.

Piazzas to check out:

  • Piazza Fontana di Trevi
  • Piazza San Pietro
  • Piazza Venezia

The Adventure Begins

... say the least. We walked in, passports out, but the immigration man gave them nothing more than a cursory glance, and then we were through. Luggage pick up next - and I was very relieved to see it there, and off I go to customs. Well that's what the sign said... I followed the signs and found myself out in the arrivals area with everyone greeting their new arrivals... I'm not sure where the customs guys were, but there you go...

I then had a couple ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Zara Rome

    Hotel rip off

    from

    We booked through a travel agent, and were paying 200 euro a night, when we arrived we were shocked on how small, dark dreary the place was the guy on reception was rude and unhelpful, they had switched our room from 358 to 220 before we arrived. The room we got was not 3 * but a zero * graded would have suit it better. Our double room was tiny very dary dinngy, with light switch fittings loose from the wall and the other not working. I complained straight away and wanted a bigger room for the price I had paid, he could not help we would have to speak with the manager, who would not be available until the next day. We had booked a coach tour for that day so were not able to meet him, so we had to spend another night in the hard bed. I request some extra pillows and got them the 2nd time. One guy in particular was extremely unhelpful. We were moved on the 3rd and 4th night to a tripple room which was better but no way was worth 200 euro per night. When booking a hotel your best to get one recommended by a friend. As all the photos that are shown on websitesare taken at angles to enhance the size and appearence of the rooms.

    Via 'Creepy' Zara Hotel

    from

    My husband and I were on our honeymoon last September 2003 and we toured Rome and ended up staying at Zara Hotel right on Via Zara, Roma. We couldn't beleive our eyes as to the place looked so creepy. It was like being on the Adams Family. The whole atmosphere inside was gruesome. Too much red carpeting, the key to our door was like a medieval times key and took forever to open. We would have been better off sleeping on a bed of rocks that's how bad our bed was, and not to mention we had no television. There were 2 tv's in the whole room and not one of them worked. Imagine that!!

    Great time in Rome.

    from

    My wife and I had a great time in Rome.The Hotel Zara is a great location for all major sights in the city area.The Vatican City was the furthest, but it was only a No64 bus ride away, that took 20 minutes.

    Great Location, everything else POOR!!!!!!

    from

    Stayed there on middle of June of 2004. The hotel was booked by a friend and expected to be a nice place, not deluxe but nice according to the price.

    The rooms were so small you could hardly move with 2 people in it. The shower in one was a curtain and drain right on the floor, the beds SO HARD that the floor would have made a better bed. The electrical power went off when turning the air-conditioning on and stayed off for the weekend. The answer I got when complaining was that no technician till Monday. WOULD NOT RECOMEND IT AT ALL!!!!!

    There are lots around the same area search!!!

    Great location

    from

    Spent two lovely nights at the Hotel Zara. The room (a double) was huge, clean and quiet. The hotel is within walking distance (10 min.) to the Termini train station and the Metro (enables you to connect all over Rome very quickly). The breakfast was okay not very big, but fresh. The only problem was the front desk staff, not very friendly and/or helpful. Would stay there again based on the location alone.

    Great little hotel

    from

    Gosh, I stayed at the hotel Zara with my mother and my niece about three years ago and found it quite enchanting, our room was really large, and the staff was delightful and very helpful, you could not beat the location,our room was totally quiet at night as the hotels wall are so thick, and our large room waslocated at the back, I dont care if things were a bit worn, for goodness sake you are itn the very center of Rome,to be able to walk to all the magnificent sights and to sit in the Piazza Navarone in the evening, I wouldnt have traded places with anyone else, thank you hotel Zara

    Couldn't wait to leave

    from

    Booked holiday through a reputable company and expected a decent room as it was graded 3*. First impression as we walked in was not good. We squashed into the tiny lift and went up to the floor our room was on.The corridors were very narrow. I'd researched this hotel on the Internet prior to booking and was led to believe it had originally been a palace - can only assume we were in the servants quarters! As soon as we opened the door and went inside, our spirits plummeted. The room was small, dark, dreary, dingy, horrid. I didn't want to spend one night there let alone four. The furniture was painted pale blue and looked tacky.The bathroom was tiny with a 'free draining' shower (ie no cubicle or tray) and there was a ghastly bright red, plastic-framed mirror and shelf on the wall. There was no hot water and the water coming out of the taps was dirty, ie full of black 'bits'. Apparently they had a problem with the boiler, but the receptionist was unable to tell us when this would be mended.I sat on the bed in despair, reluctant to unpack our suitcases. After a few phone calls we checked out and moved to another hotel, so we were only at the Zara about one hour - plenty long enough for us!

    Its location beats all its cons!

    from

    I have just been to Zara Hotel in Rome. I have to say that it is excellently located. It is just a stone's throw away from the city's main attractions: the Vittoriano (15 mins on foot away), the Spanish Steps (10 mins), Piazza Barberini (2 mins), Fontana di Trevi (15 mins).

    Could not wait to leave

    from

    The Hotel Zara was listed as a renovated "Palace" furnished with antiques located in the heart of Rome. A Motel 6 along the highway would have been more romantic! While it was within walking distance to almost everything, our first room was so small the door hit the bed - the second was a bit larger but the bed was so uncomfortable that we had trouble sleeping - (the mattress was really a box spring with a 1/8 inch pad on it and the cleaning staff only changed the linen once in 8 days.) The antique furnishings consisted of green particleboard modular furniture from the 70's - maybe the matress was the antique. This place was old, dingy, noisy, hot (the air conditioning advertised was turned off Oct 1st), uncomfortable and nothing remotely resembling a "palace". I'd suggest you spend a little more and have a comfortable room someplace else - because it's hard to enjoy your day when you don't rest well at night.
