ONLY MISSING A RESTURANT
Excellant hotel some way from centre which is easily accesable via the metro (station 5 mins away) or free shuttle bus(hourly)no resturant but staff recommended a stunning resturant only 5 min walk away.
Inexpensive, clean & quiet but in the burbs
A cousin living in Rome booked the hotel for us and we would definitely go back so that says it all. It was like a north american mid range business hotel and far out but the price couldn't be beat (100 euros a night with breakfast for 2)and was so quiet we slept like babies. Next time we would rent a scooter for the whole time to do the back and forth into town even though there is a free shuttle. Loved all the diversions in the city but was happy to get a good nights sleep.
We will return to the Zone
A very nice clean modern hotel with nice cheerful and helpful staff.
The mini-bus service, every hour to the Centre of Rome, was extremely helpful. I would, in future, return to the Zone.
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while in Rome. Generally, the hotel was fine. Modern, clean, spacious rooms. However, we were a little disappointed with our stay. The hotel website is misleading. The hotel is 2km from the Vatican, not the centre of the city. Walking took about 25mins, but it was not a flat walk. If you plan to walk around Rome all day, then you probably don't want to walk to the city as well. There is a shuttle bus that goes hourly into Rome, but it is only an 8 seater.
Once full, it seemed to leave, so first in best dressed (don't get caught out). The bus drops off at Piazza Cavour, and picks up too, however the last pick up is 7.30pm going back to the hotel. The local transport is okay, but is still abit of a walk from the hotel. There is a bus, and overland train within about 10min walk, and the metro (line B) is probably 25 min walk. Found the bus the best bet. If you want to be close to the action in Rome, this hotel is not for you.
The staff were friendly. However, we had a problem using the hotel internet. They charge 3 euros for half an hour. It is very slow- we sent 2 emails from a yahoo account in half an hour. When we complained we were told it was a problem with the internet and not their computer.
Too many people using the internet at one time (it was 10.30pm at night)However, it is not broadband, and is running off an external model. Think that had more to do wih it. Definatley a rip off, and despite complaining, they weren't interested and still charged us for the internet.

Since 1972 the city has been divided into administrative areas, called municipi (sing. municipio) (until 2001 named circoscrizioni). They ...
We went for breakfast at the train station because the breakfast at our hotel wasn't very good. After breakfast it was time to head to the airport for our flight home. We had a 6 hour flight to Dubai, a 3 hours wait and then a 12 hour flight to Adelaide. ...
It was our last day in Rome and we vowed not to set an alarm. However, P and I were still up around 7 and he convinced me to go with him (before my shower *gasp*) to get our first cappuccino at our local Bar. It was such a great experience and I'll never be able to drink American coffee again (I think this may be a theme, Italian food is just so great! The coffee, the gelato, the mozzarella...*sigh*) We stood at the bar, like real Italians, because we ...
It's an odd feeling travelling back to Rome where we started. Arriving midday so plenty of time to settle in and get our tickets out to the airport for the next day. Stopped the night at dell Esquilina square close to the train station....a very busy night indeed!! We were booked into a B&B but no breakfast as we were leaving too early for them.....nothing a few bananas couldn't fix...and not to mention the chocolate nut ...
... The second dish is a green pasta shaped like a green bean with goat meat. Very rich. Better if you don't know what you are eating. The salad is a combination of bitter cabbage, large beans, carrots and tomatoes with a plate of cheese. No grappa or inferno!
After lunch, we toured the village. With stops at the church 2 private homes and a walk through the cobblestone streets. It was a perfect way to end our visit to Italy.
