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.

He made a recce of St Peter's Square, took umpteen pictures of the square and the queue, then negotiated with “John” (who said that he was from Pakistan – looked more like Abdul) and found that, for a few dollars there was a “jump the queue” facility leaving at 1515.

... by the gal who was helping us and we probably would not have chosen it on our own. It had gorgonzola cheese, mozzarella and ham. Wood fired crust and it was delicious. We loved it. We want to try something similar when we get back. So good and we were not finished. We also decided to share an order of Carbonara. Oh my, oh my, oh my. It was phenomenal. By far the best we had ever had and the best we had on our trip. The pancetta was crunchy, the egg was creamy, ...
... walking the city...started by finding my hostel for when I have an additional 40 lbs of luggage. I then was going to walk back to the spanish steps. I ran into many unique sights, expensive hotels, and nice shopping. But the spanish steps I did not find - I found St. Paul's Square and a big city park. I then walked the ...
... had just staggered to the finishing post of a marathon. I would have liked to see the Colosseum but having seen a few spectacular amphitheatres in Turkey I opted for the Sistine Chapel and the Trevi Fountain. Really liked the idea of throwing my coin in to the water to make sure I would return. Apparently if you chuck two in, you will come back married, three and you will return divorced. Thought I would stick with the one coin. Less messy. Could ...
... slow cooking meat in a pot, always changing as realizations and circumstances concoct with each other in the cauldron of our limited time. I wish Eugenio and Ann much love, happiness and joy for the rest of their lives and pray they have a life together filled with dreams come true.
We had gelato for dessert and I slept that night in Tinks and Supi’s room on their spare bed.
