Rome Best Western Hotel Rivoli

by puppykins

Has anyone stayed at the Best Western Hotel Rivoli in
Rome? If so, what were your impressions? I could only find a couple of reviews for this hotel on the internet and they were not the most positive. Also, what is the best way to get from the airport to a hotel? There are 5 of us and we do not want to use a cab or the train with all our luggage.

Thanks for the input!

Travel Tips for Rome

Romans and motos

by vysnaite

Roman people are open, friendly and talkative. The way of live in this city asks to put up with tourists and to seek for comfortable and fast ways of moving around, so, sure they use motor-bike/motorini, as they can "manevrate" among the cars. The picture is from a daily life scene, a simple yard of locals.

If you feel ready to get the popular atmosphere of Rome pay a half an hour visit to Boccea neighborhood (15 minutes by car from the Vatican); it is a 'no tourists' area where people really lives a normal life, with normal shops, normal jobs and so on ... do not expect luxury here, just daily life.

Another popular place: Cinecitta' (www.cinecitta.it) where tons of italian movies has been cut; the surrounding is not interesting at all, but the studios are nice (in the pic the Venice set).

Watch the meter

by TheWanderingCamel

You'll hear plenty of tales of woe about Rome taxi rip-offs - this isn't one of them.

We used taxis quite a bit during the week we were there and never had any problems at all.

Our first taxi was from the airport and we'd been warned this can be a hazard. Knowing that it's a set fare of 40 euro from Fiumicino to anywhere within the Aurelian walls in the city, no matter what the time or how much baggage you have, was a good base to start from. As long as you take a licenced taxi from the official rank (they're all white, with 'taxi' lights on top, and each has a taxi license number displayed on the door) you shouldn't have a problem either. If you do, insist on getting the the taxi's license number and make it clear you're writing it down - don't forget to take down the name and number of the co-operative as well as the driver - and ask for a receipt.

Call 060606 to report any problems.

There are other set charges too - including the flagfall that will show on the meter immediately you enter the taxi. This varies according to the time and day - currently (summer 2008) it is
€2,33 from 7 am to 10 pm on weekdays
€3,36 from 7 am to 10 pm on Sundays and holidays
€4,91 from 10 pm to 7 am all days of the week

and there are 2 tariffs. Tariffa 1 applies inside the city's ring road. If you cross the ring road, Tariffa 2 will be applied but the driver is required to inform you when this happens. The Nueva Feria for example is outside the Ring Road, and not part of the airport fixed tariff scheme, so Tariff 2 be displayed on the meter but only after you have crossed the rindg road.

Baggage is charged at a rate of €1,04 per bag - this charge does not apply from the airports where the set fare includes your luggage but is applied on all other taxi journeys.

If you call a taxi to pick you up do be aware that the meter will be set from the minute the driver sets off to collect you, which can make quite a difference to a fare. The easiest way to get a taxi is to walk to a taxi stand - there are plenty of them around the central district.

Rome's higgledy-piggedly streets are a one-way nightmare maze for drivers - if your taxi seems to be going the long way round, it's more than likely because your driver is well aware of that and is taking a faster, albeit longer-as-the-crow-flies route via the city's arterial roads.

excellent food

by UKbound04 about Cave Canem

I ate here on a regular basis because it was so good. Popular with university students, locals and expats. Warm and lively atmosphere with friendly service in my favorite, non-touristy part of the city. The only time I could ever eat an entire plate of gnocchi was here. For dessert the Limone Ripieno (ice cream) is highly reccomended

Obviously you gotta go to the Coliseum

by myrtle

Anyone who has ever seen "Gladiator" can't wait to go to the Coliseum. The first time I was in Rome we didn't go inside, but the second time I went ahead & paid for it. It's pretty cool to see where the animals were transported under the floor of the Coliseum which is now revealed.
