hotel quandry

by edfisher

I'm having a difficult time choosing a hotel in Rome for 4 night next year. I am looking for a 5 star hotel with large rooms, possibly a balcony, a great breakfast, more modern decor,in a central location. Does such a place exist?

if i could afford 5 stars, i would have liked the st regis which was beautiful although not modern. it was located right next to the main train termini.

Yes.

My favorite is the Hassler Hotel, right on the Spanish Steps,

The Hassler and the St. Regis are great hotels. You also might want to consider the Capo D'Africa. A hotel that has everything you are looking for except being in the city center is the Hilton Cavalieri. This is where I always stay. Great rooms, balcony, modern.... it really is a great hotel.

The Cavalieri Hilton has indeed great rooms and great breakfast, but I would not describe its decor as modern. I remember it as full of marble and gilded pieces of furniture.
If you think you would like a small but de-luxe hotel, designed and owned by Anna Fendi, have a look at this review, there are pictures and also a link to the hotel website: http://news-e.hoosta.com/fashion-and-exuberant-hotel-in-rome-labeled-fendi

I loved the Mecenate Palace on Via Carlo Alberto near St Maria Maggiore Basilica. It's only four stars but has all the the features you have mentioned. I stayed there once but just wish I could afford to stay there every time I visit Rome.

You have great suggestions above - also the Splendide if you like a more quiet elegance. It is on Pincio by Villa Borghese/Via Veneto/Hemmingway's - here is the website:

If you don't want quiet - the Westin Excelsior is still a 5-star but nowhere as good as previous suggestions.

The Hotel Majestic on Via Veneto is George Clooney's choice - but then, he would be happy anywhere getting the star treatment!

There may be some gilding in the reception area but the rooms are really nice and modern. Nice flat screens, seating areas and balcony. Being outside the city is a negative but it doesn't bother me.

Hi there Donna, fellow Pizza-burger! Your 5-star (?) out of the city sounds wonderful!

Re: hotel quandry

by monorailgold

It really is a great place to go to get out of the city at the end of the day. At this point I can't imagine staying any place else.

I'm from the North Hills, how bout you?

Travel Tips for Rome

there are so many places in...

by Giulia_ua

there are so many places in Rome that you must see. I did not have enough time to visit all of them, so if you have only 2 days in Rome, first of all you must see Vatican and Saint Peter Cathedral. For the details, see my Vatican page.

Fall and winter travel appearal.

Durable backpack with wheels. I think this offers the most mobility for a traveler who plans to use trains and buses to get from one hotel to the other. The wheels come in handy when you get tired and the pack can be carried in and around sights you find along your way to a hotel. *Wicking sports shirts (Light weight and take up very little space. Layers keep a person warm in chilli cathedrals and the cool weather. Also one can peel layers to expose the wicking shirt when it gets warmer.)

*Whool sox.

*Comfortable pair of hiking sandals.

*Comfortable pair of walking shoes.

*Medium weight jacket (whool my choice for staying warm even in rain).

*A weeks worth of underwear. (Waste as little time as one must washing clothing.) I keep this minimal as I am a male and wash my hair with hand soap often.

*Tooth brush and paste.

*Small travel towel.

*Bar of soap (Can be used to wash clothes by hand if one must.) *Digital camera with at least one gig of memory.

*Mini-tripod for camera. I am not much of a camper. I really appreciate modern conveniences like climate controlled buildings, toilets, running water, and showers. Small fanny pack or backpack for day trips.

Paper and pen.

Passport holder that can be warn around the neck, waste or pocketed.

Compass.

Chocolatier since 1925 is where to stock up!

by Lornabug about Valzani

This street was filled with scaffolding when we first strolled down it at night but I noticed several shops I HAD to return to during the day, this being one of them. What can I say? I'm a sucker for chocolate. If you don't speak Italian you'll just do a lot of pointing: "that one, that one, two of those, that one, a handful there..." while glimpsing at all the weird paintings hanging around.

Chocolate covered candied peppers (bell or something I think... mostly tasted like sugar), truffles, pralines, traditional candies for holidays, and my favorites: foil-wrapped chocolate ovals that were deliciously smooth dark chocolate with one of the best spicy aftertastes I've tried (and I always go for the spicy ones!), and pure chocolate medallions to try my hand with at home for some small-scale truffle making day.

The woman was so old and I wished I could have talked to her all day about chocolate making. But at least we managed to find out that she has family near where I live! Unfortunately I didn't figure out whether or not they are carrying on the chocolate tradition. Pepper chocolates and pralines. 1-10 euro a piece.

On finding out bus routes and timetable

by baronedivandastad

As explained in another tip of mine, buses and trams cover the city very extensively, and though slow at times, represent the best way of moving around when on a budget (a 75-minute ticket with unlimited changes, valid also for one metro or local train trip, costs only 1 euro).

So how to find out bus timetables and routes? the easiest way is to browse the ATAC site (linked below), though a little problem is that it's in Italian only. Once the first page displays, you can see three sections on the top orange-coloured banner. One says "calcola il percorso", with boxes labelled "partenza" and "arrivo". This will enable you to figure out the best way to get from A to B. Tip: when writing a street or square name, omit the via or piazza, simply writing the name. The site will produce a map of Rome where your route is drawn with (sometimes confusing) colours. Other tip: the route will be produced according to the (Italian) time when you enter the query, so if you browse in the middle of the night expect some strange results.

Another box says "Trovalinea" (ignore the trova indirizzo, which will simply spot an address into the map). This enables you to find out facts about all bus lines. So if you want to look for the timetables for bus line n.64 simply type 64 in the box and click on "cerca". The following page will usually have two clickable entries at the very top, under "risultato della ricerca". These correspond to the two end points of the selected line. Clicking on either of them will give you the timetables from that endpoint. So if you want to look for the timetables for line 64 leaving from Termini you must click on "partenza da Termini" and voila, here's the timetable!

Some lines have different timetables on holidays, in which case you are likely to see two additional entries (labelled "festiva") and on schooldays (scolastica).

Additionally, the page produces a map of the line, and you can localize each stop by clicking on its name under the map (scroll down if you have a lousy display like mine).

Dining with the locals

by paulapes about Da Francesco

THIS was my favorite restaurant! Da Francesco.
It's a trattoria that's very popular with the locals. You sit with other people wherever you can find enough seats for your party...it's definitely informal and noisy, but the food and experience is worth it! It is also very busy and if you don't go early, you will have to wait in line outside for a seat. (By early, I mean around 8:30 (20:30). That's impossible...everything was delicious.
