Hotel Rex

by Jackiet147

By the way, has anyone stayed at the Hotel Rex in Rome?

Re: Hotel Rex

by domenicococozza

Yep, we stayed there a couple of years ago. Really close to the opera house and
convenient for eveything else. The hotel is comfortable and the staff helpful, if a little stuffy.
I wouldn't categorise it as a filly blown 4 star hotel, but prefer to think of it as a superior 3 star hotel.

Thanks for the reply. feeling a little more confident now! Did you find any nice restaurants nearby? Preferably Italian?

Re: Hotel Rex

by doofus

Has the hotel got a web site? Sounds like something my wife and I might like.

Re: Hotel Rex

by domenicococozza

There are restaurants everywhere. Just avoid the ones advertising 'MENU TURISTICO'. These are usually displayed at the entrance and are written in several languages.

Re: Hotel Rex

by domenicococozza

You can browse their website at www.hotelrex.net.
As a postscript/ They only offer bed and breakfast, hence my opinion of a 3 star rating being more appropriate.

But that is in Italian! There is good information on various hotel booking sites. We did quite a lot of research and this was our favoured one. We booked through venere.com. We wanted to be near Termini station as this is where the coach/bus drops us off from Ciampino Airport. We wanted to be able to walk to save messing about with taxis and metros etc. We always choose hotels near to the stations as it saves time as well when you only have a couple of days.

I always find though that most older hotels in big cities, Paris etc don't have restaurants.

On the bottom right hand side of their home page, you'll find a Union Jack.
Just click on this and you can read their site in Enlgish.

Travel Tips for Rome

Demonstrations and Rallys

by icunme

All the rallies end in one of the historical squares of Rome. According to the size of the expected attendance the locations involved are:
a) Piazza del Campidoglio: small rallies (less than 5,000);
b) Piazza Navona: small rallies (up to 40,000);
c) Piazza del Popolo: medium size rallies (up to 150,000);
d) Piazza S. Giovanni in Laterano: large rallies (up to 1,000,000);
e) Circo Massimo: very large rallies (more than 1,000,000).

Former Prime Minister (and staunch Bush ally) Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian PM who took office in June 2001 and was just defeated, claimed that the success of a March 2002 mass gathering in Rome to protest against his labour policies was due more to the beauty of Rome, than to a genuine negative opinion about the legislation he wanted to introduce.
There is an element of truth in this statement: Trade Unions organized and subsidized the trip and many took the occasion to spend a day in Rome.

The events which led to the 2003 war in Iraq and its violent and never-ending aftermath caused a lot of uneasiness and anxiety in many people. These feelings were behind the massive participation in the rallies organized to prevent the war and subsequently to call for a different approach to the many issues the intervention had raised.
While rallies organized by the Unions are very structured, these other rallies left more room for individual participation.

walk beyond vatican city

by rkearns

if you are standing in front of the vatican looking at the fountain, look left and start walking....toward the pillars, beyond the pillars and up the hill. you will walk into a more local neighborhood with more affordable food. there are lots of take out restaurants and a feeling of being out of the rush of the city.

Piazza Navona

by Packerman about Piazza Navona

Since we have two small children the only thing we did at night was go to piazza navona and see the live entertainment.
There are several street performers and some live music every night. There are several cafes surrounding the piazza where you can order a drink, a meal, or dessert like Tartufo a rich chocolate ice-cream like dessert.

When eating in Rome, follow the priests

by jparrai about Ditirambo

The restaurant is small, only like twenty tables or perhaps less. We found it when looking for something, anything to eat. It was early, so most tables were empty. We asked for one and they doubted a bit and conferred, before finally finding us one. We laughed, because the restaurant seemed empty enough. As said, it was early. It filled completely up in like one hour, and was filled since. Most had reservations. One big nearby table was reserved for a group of Catholic priests, probably Welsh or something alike. I liked that, I mean, it stands to reason that the priests, being part from a community installed in the city since well, almost forever, have the best tips available.

It turned out so. The food was perfect, the service attentive and the prices reasonable. Roman food, a bit more imaginative than most. Rations were a bit on the small side, but I like that when visiting.

A couple of days later I returned there for a card, and the owner (I think he was the owner) even remembered me! That's a proof for me of attention to detail, and concentration in your bussiness.

Take your time at the Fourm

by chasisaac

The Rouman Fourm is a great place to vist and is usually a tourist stop.

Do not, and I mean do not, plan to spend an hour there. Spend an afternoon there and bring lunch and just take in the sites and enjoy the histroy that is all around.
