Historical Traveler Reviews 66 Imperial Inn Rome
Excellent value for money
Just returned from a 2 night stay at 66 Imperial Inn. Was a liitle apprehensive after reading some negative reviews but found it to be excellent value for money. Extremely clean, staff friendly, bonus of free fridge and within walking distance of all major sights the Vatican being furthest away. We arrived late at night and were pleased that we had pre-booked a taxi through the B & B otherwise we would have probably still been looking for the building now but that could just be our sense of direction. (Quote 35Euro actual 40Euro which we accepted as it was midnight and we would have tipped to 40Euro anyway) We would stay here again without question.
We stayed there from 14th - 18th February 2005. This is a most wonderful Bed & Breakfast. Apparently B&Bs are quite new to Italy, and this one is very new, but it could not be faulted!
Location: The 66 Imperial Inn is located near Termini Station (about 10 minutes walk). The B&B is on the 4th floor (there is a lift) of an appartment block on Via Viminale. We walked to almost all the tourist attractions, except for the Vatican, which is a bus ride away.
Security: You get 4 keys: main entrance, inside door, 4th floor entrance to the property and your room door. It is quite secure, and there is quite a large safe in your room, and you can choose the combination yourself. There is a member of staff available 24/7.
B&B: The property has only been opened for a few months, and is superbly decorated. Our room faced onto the street, and Rome being Rome it can be noisy, but not like being on a main road-that said there are interior and exterior window doors that you can close. The rooms are large, light, very clean, well furnished, with safe, refridgerator (mineral water and juices are free), ceiling fan, A/C, wardrobe with wooden coat hangers and Sat TV. The bathroom is equipped with large mirrors, bidet, jacuzzi jet shower, and you are supplied with thick white bath towels, shampoo and shower gel. The owners/staff there are very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast in Italy is mostly sweet, so you should not expect eggs and bacon. There were a large choice of cookies, cakes, croissants, cereals, yoghurt, milk, juices and the most of all an espresso machine with choice of espresso, coffee, coffee/latte macchiatto, hot chocolate and hot water for tea. Breakfast is available until 12noon. The coffee machine, fruit juice, water and some cakes are available FREE all day!
A nice touch - we left a mobile (cell) phone in the bedroom when we left. The owners found it and posted it off to us.
Just around the corner, on Via Napoli is a wonderful restaurant - used mostly by locals, The Trattoria Abruzzese. Make sure you visit it - don't be fooled by the single table in the entranceway. They will take you further inside where there are plenty of tables (it gets very busy from 8pm).
We can recommend 66 Imperial Inn unconditionally. There is no doubt, that when we return to Rome (we both threw two coins into the Trevi fountain to make sure!) we will stay at the 66 Imperial Inn.

Words cannot explain how pleased we were with our stay at the 66 Imperial Inn in Rome.
What a wonderful place! Great location--easy to walk everywhere in Rome.
I have travelled all over the world and I have never received such warmth and friendliness than our stay here. I am not usually motivated to post comments at a website but our stay was special. Breakfast is served in lovely Tea room with Villa Borghese!. The hotel is located very closed to the Roman Forum . Very friendly welcome. Probably the most competitive prices for such a quality and standing in Rome. We highly recommend it to anybody
Excellent stay in Rome
We all really enjoyed our stay at Imperial Inn. Thank you very much. I have done a lot of traveling around Europe and found some good and not so good places. Well this one - 66 Imperial Inn - is at the top of my favorite list. After an 8 hour train I was hoping that I had picked a good place from the internet. Within 10 minutes I had arrived at their doorstep and was very welcomed. The folks are absolutely fantastic. And so was my room. It was roomy, comfortable and had lots of amenities. The bathroom was actually luxurious with a jacuzzi in the shower. I spent a week here and was very sorry to leave the city and the B&B. I plan always to come back here when I visit.
Home Away from From Home
Paris- move over!!! Rome is now my new favorite city on this continent. And a lot of that had to do with my stay at the 66 Imperial Inn. Not knowing Rome, I had to do all my resource on the internet. I found this place and decided to give it a go. It had just been renovated with the small details being finshed up. After an 8 hour train ride from Switzerland, I was ready to crash and hoped this place would work out. I was at the doorstep within 10 minutes and I was greated with open arms. The family was incredibly generous and I immediately felt comfortable. Then I got to my room which was way, way more than I expected. It was quite large with a great bed and beautifully decorated. It had all the good amenities like Sat TV, frig, hairdryer, and safe. What blew me totally away though was the bathroom. It was luxurious and had a jacuzzi in the shower. Let me tell you how nice that was after walking around Rome each day for 10 hours. I totally love this place and the people that run it. Being a novice here, they really helped me get a grip on the town. This will always be my home here.
Great place! Much more than we expected!
We stayed there from 3.-9. of November and after a lot of journeys and city visits we found much more that we expected! We know what we are talking about after travelling a lot in Europe and USA. This B&B excels most hotels!
Location: The 66 Imperial Inn is located near Termini Station, just about 8 minutes away (with baggage!). We arrived with the Terravision Bus from CIA airport at Termini and walked over to Via Viminale. The B&B ist located on the 4th floor of an appartment house. Via Viminale is not a main street, but with lots of shops around and a supermarket vis-a-vis, a small market around the corner. Next Metro station (Repubblica) and Bus station at Via Nationale are 3 minutes away, but we walked to most of the points of interest. Spanish stairs, Collosseum, Forum Romanum, Piazza del Popolo and even the Vatican are in walking distance. While walking through the side streets you will discover many stores, restaurants, buildings, statues, fountains and other things you would never have found taking the bus.
Security: You get 4 keys: main entrance, stair house (there is a lift too), 4th floor entrance and your room door. So you can feel very secure, especially with the safe storage in your room. You can choose the combination by yourself. It is large enough to store even a notebook and some other stuff. And the staff ist 24h present.
B&B: The 66 Imperial Inn opened just a few weeks ago. Our room faced to the rear and was very quiet, but I think the rooms facing to the street are quiet too. The rooms are large, light, very clean, well furnished, with safe, refridgerator (mineral water and juices are free), ceiling fan, A/C, wardrobe with wooden coat hangers and Sat TV. The TV screen is small, but after all day long sightseeing we fell asleep in seconds after returning to our room. Who needs a big TV in a city like Rome?
But now for the best: the bathroom! It is equipped with large mirrors, bidet, jacuzzi jet shower, much place to put your things and bright with lots of light (even in the shower), thick white frottee (bath) towels, shampoo and shower gel. The walls and floor are made with marble tiles (if you do not believe, look at my website ). The jacuzzi jet shower itself is worth a stay in this place!
The people there are very friendly and helpful. Sometimes the small details make a difference, so our things in the bathroom were lovingly ordered by size like organ pipes. You should follow the staff's restaurant recommendation to Da Luciano and Monte Carlo.
Breakfast in Italy is mostly sweet, so you should not expect ham and eggs. There were a large choice of cookies, cakes and "madeleines", but also cornflakes, joghurt, milk, juices and the best: an espresso machine with choice of espresso, coffee, coffee/latte macchiatto, hot chocolate and hot water for tea.
We can recommend this place in every way. There is no doubt. If we ever will return to Rome (I threw a coin into the Trevi fountain to make sure) we will stay at the 66 Imperial Inn again. I hope, it will not be booked out after this review.

to the one that exists today.
We then got to the Sistine Chapel. It was great that our
guide had already explained it to us and we were able to look and appreciate
certain things within the paintings. No photos allowed as when they discover
the paintings on the roof, the cost to clean it was going to be huge, so an
Asian company offered to clean it for free provided they had the rights to the
ceiling. So no one else is ...
... so many locals and tourists to wonder about the ancient civilisation. Rome is a golden city ('gold' also starts with a 'G' - maybe I should integrate it into my title for that added alliteration). I imagined Rome to be hot, like a Mediterranean desert. Even in Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Carey Grant it seems hot and golden despite the film being in black and white. The constantly flowing water from the drinking fountains seems to add to the sensation of ...
... the magnificence of the Michelangelo iconic creation of man and the day of judgement paintings in the Sistine chapel? To be in the presence of these great works is truly inspiring marred only by the crowds.
It was a long day on our feet and we got back to the apartment and rested our feet, had a beer and then went out a few hours later to the Trevi fountain and to the night markets around the corner to ...
... While waiting for the tour to had lunch at a cafe outside the Vatican. Such a rookie mistake. A sandwich, chicken and veggies was 50 euro, what a rip. That night we had a few drinks and went home. Friday we walked to Trevi fountain and the Pantheon. That night we found a really cool area of Trastevere that was a bunch if small streets full of bars, restaurants, vendors and street performers. We met a couple of lawyers from New Zealand that we hung out with ...
So...big day yesterday, trekked down to the Colosseum and spent a bit of time in and around there before heading off to the Palatine Hill. Some awesome buildings, but from following on from yesterdays thread, it's sad to see the destruction of these once magnificent feats of architecture for the sake of the Vatican...one building which has largely escaped the Catholic Churchs' hands was the Temple of Romulus - not overly large but it has ...
