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.

... t get to the grass area at the bottom of the arena like I would have liked but we are in the shadows. This is where they used to hold the animals that used to fight. Back in the day there was a trap door and a platform that was raised to allow the animals on to the arena. Very cool to be down there. Hinesh and I were snapping away only half listening to the history but loving the area we were in. The rains are coming down now so part of the tour is up on the third level and we wait it out ...
... was about 3 stories up, as we were on our way a service inside of the church was just ending, and the father came walking towards us. I was smiling stupidly thinking he wanted a donation. I started rummaging through my purse and looked up to see him pointing at Sydney and making some really strange hand motions at his chest, and the motion to shew us out. He apparantly didn't like Sydney's shorts-and-a-tanktop outfit and kicked us out!!!! We laughed about ...
... option St Peter's Basilica: yeah why not! Around the corner we went and followed the crowd that got denser by the minute. When we finally got to St Peter's Square it was what I thought totally packed and we found out that the Pope was going to give a blessing in 45 minutes from his window. Can you imagine, another 45 minutes of more people squashing onto that square. The metro was only an entrée! You could not move if ...

We had an absolutely brilliant day heading out to Ostia Antica (suggested to us by some friends) what a marvel, just being able to wander through this old City and touch the 1st Century BC columns, mosaic's, steps, paving, arches & fountains. 34 hectares of Ruins - this City ran along side the Tiber River a main thorough-way to Rome. Most of this City was 3 stories high with some larger buildings & ...
