Located in a residential safe area. No problem walking in the evenings. Quite a walk to the taxi stand ( 10 mins) but preferable to having hotel call a cab ( 30 mins wait). Hotel serves only breakfast. Same menu daily. Internet in the lobby for 6 euro/30 mins. There are nice restaurants located 2 blocks away. Ask the front desk and they will direct you. They are all located on the same street, different blocks. Few 'bars' near hotel to pick up coffee/breakfast/ panini. Locals are friendly. There is a grocery store one block away if you wish to pick up water, fruits, munchies. Front desk staff are courteous but not overly friendly. Cab to Vatican, Colloseum etc costed between 8- 11 euros. Remember to pick up hotel business cards to show driver. Not all speaks English. Walls are not super insulated but guests are not noisy. Not much view if you're in Rm 202 but the rest of the family in Rm 203 (triple) had balcony /view. If you don't mind walking, this place is great. Yes, I would return to this hotel. Prefer this to the touristy crowded area.
Unique Quality: Very colorful rooms/halls. Lovely residential area.
The hotel offers 150 guestrooms and 55 suites which are airconditioned and equipped with satellite TV, mini bar, radio, direct dial phone and ensuite bath with hairdryer. Some of the rooms include a balcony.
Unique Quality: The Hotel Albani Rome is centrally located facing the ancient park of Villa Albani. It is 0.5 kilometres from Villa Borghese Park and the Borghese Gallery Museum and 0.7 kilometres from Via Veneto.
Local attractions like Catacombes is just 1 kilometre from the hotel, the Piazza di Spagna is located 2 kilometres away and the Fontant di Trevi is 3 kilometres away.
The airport is a 23-kilometre drive from the hotel
I'm thinking about staying at the Albani hotel for 3 nights for my first trip to Rome. Can anyone comment if this is a good choice or if the area is not ideal for sightseeing etc?
Hotel Albani and Grand Beverly Hills are around the corner from each other and we stayed at both. The location was fine but you have to like walking. We were able to walk to Trevi Fountain, Colosseum, Spanish steps and the like. The hotel is very close to the Villa Borghese (about a 10 min. walk or so). However, we did get a hop-on hop-off pass and used that also instead of walking at times, especially for the Vatican City area. Both hotels were clean and nice and served a good breakfast. We just came back last Friday 3/24 and would highly recommend both. Have a great time!!
Thanks for your help!
I look forward to going there, please let me know of any restaurants you would recommend.
